THE BAItltE DAILY TIMES, BARRE, VT., .MONDAY, AUGUST 8, 1914.
ITALIAN A. C. AGAIN WINNER Defeated Barre A. C. 9 to 4 in Listless Game at , Intercity Park .GIVING THEM TWO GAMES Losing Team was Shaky in Field and Failed to Hit at Right Times The Italian A. C. won the second gain of the Italian A. C.-Barre A. C. series to decide the city championship at In tercity park Saturday afternoon by the score of 0 to 4 in a rather tame game of baseball. By virtue of Saturday s victory the Italians have two games of the series to their credit. The series wa arranged for the best three out of five 2a meg. Intercity park was the magnet for a throng of nearly 2,000 spec tators from Barre and Montpelier, an even larger crowd than passed the turn stile in the opening eontest.- - The Italian aggregation of ball-tossers clearly outplayed the Barre team at 4 every stage of the nine innings and were totally deserving of victory. Ar rayed in' the batting togs, the Italians found Aylward, the Middlebury twirler, and Davidson, Barre's star performer, but little opposition in concerted efforts to land the second leg of the champion ship series. In the very opening inning the Italians instituted their batting bee, which was very much in evidence in every inning. Aylward, who was recruited to do the honor of the mound for Barre, was obliged to retire from the breastworks under fire at the close of five innings. In that time he was touched up for eight hits, which, together with a smattering of errors, resulted in seven tallies for the Italians. Davidson entered onto the scene in the sixth inning and during his four-round regime was no enigma to the victors. When Aylward retired at the close of the fifth inning, the Ital ians were in the lead with a 7 to I score. Davidson was scored on twice during the remaining innings. Joe Weafer, the peerless pitcher, again went to the little hillock under orders from Manager Calcagni. Weafer 'was once more master of the Barre team. During the first four innings' but 14 bat iers faced the conquering pitcher. With a commanding lead, the Morrisville lad eased his pace at this juncture. Be came of injuries received early in the game Wearer lost his effectiveness. .Nev ertheless, he was able to work through the game and emerged a decisive win ner. . Weafer, Davidi and Comolli were the most conspicuous hitters in the Italian team, although other members of the team managed to respond at crucial mo ments with telling hits. Weafer wielded the willow for four safeties," Davidi three and "Big Joe" Comolli poled a brace of long doubles, Pedtizzi, Wright and Nute led the Barre faction in batting. The superiority of the Italian team in the field was not questioned. Probably the moat noticeable work was achieved by Earl Williams, the Dartmouth play er. He was credited with four put-outs and two assists. He covered the center garden with fleetnesg of foot and every one of his put-outs was noteworthy. In the seventh inning he robbed Nute of ; a two-base hit bv a spectacular one handed catch and and also staved off runs by virtue of the catch. Hereafter great respect will be evinced for his strong right arm. In the fourth inning he caught Hoar, running for Nute, as he attempted to make third by a snappy throw from deep center field. In the seventh he nipped Pedtizzi attempting to make home from second base on Wright's hit. Bottigi added his name to the honor list by pulling down Johns ton's drive in deep left field after a long run. Giacamuzzi also turned in a good day In the field. When Umpire Battles opened the fire work, the Barre team, accompanied by strong sections of rooters, were keyed high with hope to turn the tide of "the series their way and the prevailing opin ion of the crowd indicated a Barre vic tory. Their hopes were blasted shortly. Aylward failed to locate the plate for Clare,. the first batter up. Davidi hit safely through second, advancing Clare to second. A wild pitch, uncorked by Aylward, sent both runners along a peg. Comolli skied an easy fly to Brown, who dropped it in his anxiety to return the ,ball to Fowlie. On receiving the ball, Fowlie foolishly threw the ball into cen ter field, endeavoring to catch Davidi. Clare scored on the misplay. Then Weaf er uncorked a hit that scored Davidi. It was Davidi who started the fun in the third inning, hitting safely to center. Comolli doubled to the woods in left field, Davidi scoring. Weafer hit safely TO SAVE EYES 18 THE OBJECT OP TBI3 FREE PRE SCRIPTIONTRY IT ir TOt'R EVES GIVE YOU TROl'BLE Thousands of pople suffer from y troo kl, iMrauM tlie? do not know what to da Ttwr know some rood bom remedy for every other minor ailment, but none for their er trouble.

The crowd called forth reminiscences of the old Northern league day The work of T'mnire Battles was hirfi- ly appreciated by the crowd because of his emcienev. With a crop of local ar biters of his calibre, games in Barre j would be better appreciated. Williams looms up as one of the strongest players in the Italian line-up, His work in both games has been of ex ceptionally high order. Pedum continues to improve in his batting. He is now regarded as one of the strongest stickers on the team. Since the last appearance of the Barre team, he has been shifted to lead-oft" man. Laird was sorely missed bv Barre at first base, although the old veteran, Wright, played a creditable game at the bag and at times displayed some of his former style. Davidi's first hit was a sizzling liner that nearly disabled Sullivan for the game, the ball took a wicked bound and struck the Barre keystone man in the forehead. He was disabled for a few minutes, but managed to complete the game. The third game of the series will be played jt the Rangers' field next Sat urday. The series calls for the best three out of five games. Odds strongly favor the Italian team. There are ru mors that the two teams, now on amicable terms, will play st regular in tervals during the remaining summer months and next season. Efforts will also be made to effect a game before the close of the season between an all-Italian and an all-American team. That first two-plv hit br Comolli ws one of the longest hits on Intercity park this season. Many have been predicting that Comolli had passed his active days as a ball player, but those who have seen his work in the games of the series think otherwise.

Washington, Aug. 3. The White House Saturday gave out a telegram from Secretary Tumulty to Curtis Guild former ambassador to Russia, stating that a published report of an editorial In Mr. Guild's paper giving an alleged statement by the president that a Euro pean war would mean a big business boom in the United States was unquali fiedly false and asking for a telegraphic reply on the source of the report. DISCUSSED WAR. Evangelist Stray Was Speaker at Gospel Tent. Evangelist F. W. Stray, president of the Northern New England conference of the Seventh Dav Adventists, arrived in the city vesterday; and gave a discourse at the Gospel tent last niifht. In view of the great war like situation, it was thought best to change the subject of the evening, and the evangelist spoke on lne battle of Armageddon." .The evangelist said in part, ("hrist said to his disciples, when on earth, in answer to their question, "What shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world?" "And there shall be signs, and upon the earth distress of nations with perplexitv." Luke 21:25. Dan. 12:4 has been fulfilled, this century has ushered in a great increase cf know! edge. Men have been studying the science of government and sociology and yet this 20th century brings the nations of Europe in this present condition. If this century brings us to this condition, to what will another century bring us? With all this increase of knowledge we should expect an era of peace. One hun- cd years from now the German em peror will not know how to rule his gov ernment bettor than now. The armies of Europe have been mak- ng great preparation for war and na- 10ns will not alwavs arm and never fight. What leads men to such tremen dous preparations and readiness for war with all the advantages of this 20th een- urv? The evangelist then showed that s Saul, when fighting the Philistines ad recourse to the medium, the witch of Kndor, so in our dsye ihcse kings and mperors are led bv wicked spirits 'rough mediums, it being a well kno fact that some of these kings have con ulted piritufllintic mediums. This fulfillment of Rev. A: 1 4-1 B." which re lilts in the battle of Armageddon. In Dan. 7:2, 3 we read that the four winds strove upon the great sea, and four beasts came up from the sea, 17th verse tells us that these beasts are four ing. the nea represent peoples and multitudes, so the four winds would be nniversal strife and war. Bv the pro phecy in Rev. 7:1-3 we see that there is to be another time of universal war, and will onlv be held in check bv the angels until the servants of God are sealed. The evangelist then said that he did not wish to be understood as saying that the war in Kurope was the battle of Ar insgeddon, he did not now that it was o; but said that unless God held it in clie k it might lesd to it. Evangelist Stray will lecture to night at the ttospel tent, taking up the fol lowing queftioiio: "If the Seventh day or SafiinUv is the Sabbath, why was it not found out before?" And why don't the educated minipter of all the church rm see it and teach it? ROBERT T. LINCOLN IS 71. Martyred President Son Celebrate fcy Playing Golf. Mn heter. Aug. 3. Robert T.

J.rr.nne TWO KILLED IN AUTO ACCIDENT Auto Plunges Down 50-Foo Embankment at Pownal CAR ROLLS OVER AND OVER Miss Mary Houghton and Mrs. Robert Hutton the Victims Bennington, Aug. 3. Mr. Robert Hut' ton, wife of Dr. Robert Hutton of New York City, and Mis Mary Houghton daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Hough ton of North Adams, Mass., are dead a the result of an automobile accident on the Pownal Center hill in the village of Pownal. The accident happened Sat urday morning about 9:30 o'clock, when (the Pierce-Arrow touring car owned by A. C. Houghton and driven by Chauffeur John Widders, plunged down a teep cm bank ment into a pasture. Th" caT over turned three times in its plunge and crushed out the life of Mrs. Hutton, who died almost instantly. Mis Houghton remained in the car, and was taken from the rear seat of the machine by people who came to the assistance of the party. She was removed, to the North Adams hospital, where she died shortly after 3 o'clock. Death was caused by injuries to the head and other of an internal nature. In the car at the time of the accident, besides the chauffeur, were A. C. Hough ton, father of the dead girl, Mrs. Hut ton and her husband. The two latter were on a vacation in North Adams and had been invited to accompany Mr. Houghton and his daughter on a short pleasure trip to Bennington. The start was made about P o clock. At the place where the accident occurred the road is being repaired, and a team engaged in the work was standing on the upper side of the highway while it was being 1 loaded. Mr. Widders, the chaffeur, said j he was going up the hill, which is rather steep at this point, when he lost control of the machine, after which the engine began to race. In turning out for the team that was standing in the road he ran the car near the edge, and it toppled over the embankment and rolled a dis tanee of about 50 feet. Dr.- Hutton and Chauffeur Widdera escaped with slight injuries. 0BREG0N TO CARBAJAL. Mexican General Notifies the Provisional President of March on the Capital Guadalajara, Mex., Aug. 3. Gen.

But Du pont' affairs bad always been in the bands of one Jobn Coulter, in whose business ability, and integrity the planter bad every confidence. He therefore left the management of the estate to Coulter as executor. Mrs. Dupont bad always distrusted Coulter, but so great was bis Influence over ber husband tbat sbe dared not speak her mind. One day sbe set out from the plan tation to visit a friend. Her trunks were taken to the station by the ne groes, but the widow .carried in her band wbat in those days was called a bandbox tnnde of pasteboard, intended for the carrying of women's bonnets or mens nuts. Tbis box sne would trust to 'no. other bands than ber own. She told all of tbe household tbat ber baby was to remain In tbe bands of Cbloe, his mammy, and no one else was to have anything to do with him. Mrs. Dupont bad been away from tbe plantation but a few days wben Chole's husband, Sampson, appeared to Inform ber tbat little Archie, ber son, was very ill. 8be hurried home and, going to tbe sickroom, shut her self up there, giving orders tbat no one except tbe doctor, who bad been the family physician for years, was to be admitted. The doctor came and went but when asked bow the baby was getting on always hurried away without giving any satisfaction. One day wben be came out of the sick room he said: "It's all over." jlwo days later Simpson carried a little coffin from tbe house, followed by the widow, the boy's mammy and II the negroes on the plantation. There were wails from the dusky mourners, but none wailed so loud as the dead boy's mammy. The coffin was carried to the family cemetery, where it was placed in a grave tbat had been pre pared for it John Coulter during Archie's sick ness, death and burial was away on business. When he returned be found his plans seriously Interfered with. There was a provision in David Du- pont's will that if bis son died before bis widow, tbe eftate should be bers instead of in trust for the boy. Tbe widow at once claimed the property and told Coulter tbat be must turn It over to her. The executor was in a bole. He had partly accomplished his' plans' to get possession of the property and bad it not been for tbe child's death would doubtless soon bare got it into a posi tion where be would appear to be tbe rightful owner. As it was, he could only undo what he had done and turn the estate over to the widow, ne was a long while doing It and she was obliged on several occasions to threat en him with a charge of misappropria tion to force him to disgorge. When he had done so sbe dismissed him, hop ing tbat be would leave the neighbor hood. But In the service of the Dupont family be had accumulated some mon ey, with which be bought a small plan tation in an adjoining county, where he settled. Some eight or nine years after Archie Dupont's death tbe widow brought to tbe plantation a boy whose age was given as twelve years and adopted him. George Etheridge was the boy's name. and be soon became a favorite with all tbe household. Chloe and Mrs. Dupont both seemed to have transferred to him their love for little Archie. George grew up a Que fellow ana, tnanks to his mother by adoption, was well edu cated. When Etheridge was about to be come of age Mrs. Dupont granted him a celebration of the event Tbe plant ers from round about were Invited to the fete, and, strange to say, Jobn Coulter, who had continued to prosper and badbecomeapromlnent cltlten, Why not have a Tele phone installed today ?
