PLANNING A BIG DOWN TOWN RALLY ON FRIDAY The Canon City high school ath etic program is starting out in fine shape and the boys and g:rls have shown a wonderru. interest in the plans for the year. Football is the game of prv-sen inte.est. and an excellent lot of material has reported to Coach Hickey for training. Three football teams are out on the fleid every even.ng. and out of this wealth of material Hickey is confi dent he can make a championship team. Many of th»» boys have not had football experience, but they hav** weight, speed and a good head in Their favor. Clark Hoover, formerly ot £a»t Denver is a veteran, and Mom Lewis had some experience at Flot ence. Dom'd Foo*e, who Juat returned from the fight mg front in France, a the giant of the squad, being over six feet tall and weighing 185 poundr He has been trained by Uncle Sam uuti do »nt carry >n ounce of sur plus fat and la in prime condition for the aensoa. ‘ ...J Lewis vioodrlrh and Joe McWtlson are among the other likely candidates for the first team. Indications now point to an inexperienced team, but with plenty of weight and speed, with several good kickers- and forward 3ass»rs being developed. Aa most of the other teams in the Arkansas val ley conference will be inexperienced too. the boys here will not be under so great a handicap from that poin’ The practice up o the present has been largely of the pre inrnary sor* because of the lack of equipment, but which has been ordered, and .s ex pected before the eng of the week. Friday night the high school wil hold a big open-air rally down town for the purpose of stirring up interest in the football season. Canon City will play Colorado Springs. Pueblo and several other teams this year, and In order to make the season successful from every standpoint the boys need the support of the citizens of Cano* City. Because of inactivities In other years the association treasury ha been depleted and the boys must but'd up a financial resource for equipment and other expenses befo e they car expect to do a great daal during the season.

Layman, who the Buick-Six automobile be longing to "Mike” Tcotnas from in front of the First Presbyterian church last' Sunday night. The boys were picked up by the authorities near An tonito in Coneios county, instead of be tween Monte Vista and Saguache, a.-* at first reported nere. Tfi® bo> s were locked up in the An tonian Jail, an insecure, ramshackle structure, shortly after their arrest, and during the following night they brokjs out and attempted to make their way into New Mexico, but were ap piehpndei by the officers of Conejos coustty and taken back to Antonito vhspe they were given into the cus tody of Sheriff Newcomb. It was un derstood here that the boys were lockfd up at Alamosa, and Sheriff Newsomb and Mr. Thomas left here Monday night for that place. On their arrival there it was learned that they were at Antonito and they left at once for that point. When they reached Antonito the boys were. gone, not..baling been recaptured their, escape from Jail. A short time after wards. however, they were anpre- Lended and again placed in the lockup. It wap guarded to prevent the prison ers from making a second getaway Im possible Onhxaving the prisoners turned over to Sheriff Newcomb was sur prised to learn that they were bo»h Canon Ct’y boys.

Lincoln Park, on last Wednesday night. The value of the stuff sto’en from Mr. DeWeese alone is more than sufficient to constitute a case of grand larceny. After the prisoners were delivered to them by the Antonito authorities Sheriff Newcomb and Mr. Thomas started back with them to Canon City In the automobile which Hayworth and Layman had stolen. Mr. Thomas drove the car and they traveled a 1 night Tuesday night. They reached Salida at 4 o’clock this morning and waited there long enough to get break fast. The trip was a long and tire some one and officers and prisoners were a weary bunch on their arrival here at 9 o’clock this morning. Hayworth and Layman were given quarters in the county jaii pending a preliminary bearing of the charge against them, which will probably not take place before Friday or Saturday. They will be held to answer to the November term of the district court for an offense that has attached to it a severe penalty.

Chairman Good of the house appropriations com mittee has informed congress. He has warned congress that the condition confronting the treasury de partment is alarming and that it must carefully consider the obligations of tne government already existing be Council Discusses Various Things The regular semi-monhly meeti:ig of the city council was hbld Monday night with Mayor Biggs presiding and all members present, except Aider men W. A. Chap-on and W. P. Tag gart. The minutes of the previous session were read by the city ciert and adopted without change. Mrs- T. M.

The ut-; most sympathy was sbbwn by the council in Mrs. Harding's inquiry and request, but aa there is no money in :he miscellaneous fund for advertis : ing or other matters of that nature, and no transfer can legally be made j from one fund to another, it was *le | cided that nothing could be done j much aa the coa»ciV»«»W-Uke t**ktp in such an undertaking. When the annual budget i» made up definite and 1 specific appropriations are made far 'he various departments of the city governnxen: and when any one of them becomes exhausted it can not be re cruited from other administrative funds. The specifil work of the fire and or dinance committee, with which they were commissioned at the last l Dol ing of the council, was continue i in relation to their investigations con cerning the establishment of gasoline tanks for public use within the city limits.

It was decided by tne city counc'l that the electric light poles with*a tht city limits must be painted grav. over a dark-colored base. Hie painting will be done at the exp *nse and under tli' supervision of the electric puwei company. Supt.

THE DEATH LIST CLIMBS IN AWFUL STORM ALONG COAST OF TEXAS 250 People are Dead as Result of Hurricane—Twenty-Nine Buried in One Grave. <Br United Prm.l Houston, Tex., Sept. 17—More than 250 people are dead, as the result of Sunoay's storm and tidal wave along tne Texas coast, is the latest conserv ative estimate. The bodies of 29 women and chil dren were buried in a single grave last night-Tired re ief workers, after 4S hours of continuous labor, are still searching for the dead and aiding the homeless. Ths property damage in the five devatated counties la tn excess of $10,000,000. The- first eye-witness to tel; the story of the storm declares that the water began rising along the coast early Sunday morning and finally -a great wall of water rushed inland Sunday afternoon, carrying every thing before it. The velocity of the wind increased to 100 miles an hour, and oil tanks and refineries went down before it. The devastated area was covered with a black layer of oil. which rendered the bodies of the dead almost unrecogniz able. Soldiers are helping clearing away the debris and bury the dead- The bodies of the unidentified dead are be ing photographed and bits of their clothing saved to aid in a a ter identi fication. The temporary morgue is besieged with frantic people who are trying to locate missing members of their fam ilies. The refugees are being cared for in tents. Corpus Christi, Tex.. Sept. 17.—A chilly, intermittent rainfall is adding to the suffering of thousands of ref. ugees in the storm-devastated counties of Texas. Four relief trains have ar rived here and the relief committee has issued an appeal for financial aid. Texas cities are all raising relief funds. An accurate list of the dead is impossible yet. but will be about 25a Wintering Steers and Beef Cows The principal object In wintering stock cattle is to carry them through cheaply without letting them 'oee flesh. It is poor enconoruy to under feed cattle in winter and let them lose much that they gained in the sum mer time. Heavy feeding of calves and yearlings in winter is expensive and reduces the gains they will make on grass the fo'lowing summer when gains are cheap. Straw, beet pulp, sugar beets, can all be used to advantage. Cows can be wintered on good hay alone or on 30 pounds of kafir silage and one * pound cottonseed meal a day. Alfalfa hay or upland hays make good rations in themselves, «rhi e with prairie or cane hay or Sudan grass. It will. be better to give some extra feed, espe cially to cowa that are to drop calves. Some shelter is advisable In winter, even though only a windbreak. Where there are plenty of trees, cattle can often get along very well with these for shelter. The following are moi» representative rations that might be used In wiatereing stock where fa*~ ten lag for market Is not desired: 1— Twenty pounds hay (alfalfa or park hay). *— I Twenty-five pounds ease hay or com fodder, one pound potto*- seed cake. 3 —Thirty pounds can*, nr , • • ■ . ■ .
