C. won the game by a score of 24 to 22. At the end of the first two periods which was to have con stituted the game, the score was a tic, 22 to 22. By mutual agreement it was decided to play another 10 minutes and the team making the first basket would win. When the time wus nearly up and after each side had made many futile at tempts to eage the ball for a last time, Alexander got a shot and the game was won. To start the game Coach Agncv'put,in veterans, but before the game closed the substitutes, F. Carroll, Sector, Nichols and Smith, were given a chance to per form. All played creditable ball, but Xichols and Smith excelled and in case j of need will make good men for the var sity five. Hooker and Tomasi also showed some fast floor work, breaking up many plays. Hooker also led the team in baskets, getting five from the floor while his man was getting three. Alexander of the (iranitevillc quintet did the star shooting for his team, caging the ball six times. , Five of these were in the last two periods. Only one being eaged while Olliver, the Npaulding right guard, was in play. Olliver was replaced by F, Carroll and later Sector took that position. Captain Aldrich of the hill team played a fast game, getting a total of three baskets from the floor and two out of five chances on fouls. The game was full of excitement from A TRIAL WILL CONVINCE ANYONE THE GREAT KIDNEY REMEDY MAKES FRIENDS A few years ago I was troubled w ith a complication of kidney and stomach ail ments and although 1 trieil two or three different doctors, 1 was unable to obtain a cure. Having heard a great deal about Swamp-Knot, 1 decided to give it a trial and purchased a one-dollar dottle of Mr. Alexander the druggist.

First ona team would be ahead and then the other. Glraniteville got the first point on a foul by Ix-vin for running, Aldrich putting the hall in. Keeley was fouled for the same thing and Tomasi made the point. Alexander made the first basket from the floor but Hook er soon had one in to even up. Thus the game went through the tirst period of 20 minutes, leaving (iraniteville in the lead by one point, the score being 14 to 13, It was in the first period that Olliver won hearty applause by getting his sin gle basket of the evening from the oppo site side of the hall. In the second period F. Carroll replaced Olliver and later Sector was put in. Nichols replaced J. Carroll at center and toward the last part of the game Smith replaced Tomasi. In this stage of the game flraniteville showed some very fast work in the line of passing, but when it came time to shoot, Spaulding had them covered. Toward the last of the second period the score was 20 to 22 in favor of ( .'raniteville when Hooker on a neat play dropped the ball in, tying the score. Le vin, the left forward of Spaulding, played a good game at defence, but failed to lo cate the basket although he tried several times." The game was not by any means devoid of fouls, for 14 were made during the game, only five coming from Spauld ing.

MAY SWEEP THE ATLANTIC Great German Fleet Prepar paring for Raid, Paris Hears YESTERDAY'S RAID BUT A FEINT To Cover a General Dash from Naval Base at Helgoland DESCRIBES KILLING OF FRENCH AVIATOR German Artillerist Tells How the Man's Machine Was Brought Down and Gun-Pointer Won the Iron Cross. (Correspondence of the Associated Press Berlin, IVc, 17. -A Herman artillerist, writing from lUpaume, France, tells of the death of it French aviator who was brought down hy Herman gunners, "To-dav 1 saw a French aviator brought down hy our guns," he said I he rrencli livers hud liecn growing Milder and holder, ruiirriMlly in reconnoit ering behind our front, and so we con cealed a half Imlleiv of howitzers in village about four miles to the rear in order to teach I linn it lesson. Things happened as we c peeled; by 8 o'clock in the morning there ciime an aeroplane, sailing along with the greatest assurance in the world. 1 he guns at the front were not permitted to (lie, and after passing them the aviator, thinking all danger past, kept coming lower and lower, reach ing finally a level of only about 1,0(10 feet. Not suspecting that he would en counter Cerman artillery so far to the rear he came within easy shooting dis tance for our gunners In the village. "Suddenly two shot were heard, and two little white clouds were observed in the air not far from the aeroplane. The aviator remained virtually at the same spot, until he was almost rnvelojied by the next two cloudlets; one shot explod ed just in front of him, the other just be hind him. Our men had gotten their range verv quickly. Then followed two I'aris, Dec. 17. The raid of the Ger man warships on the Knglish coast was not unexpected here. It had been pre dicted by several close observers of the naval events and possibilities of the war who have had information from inside official sources. These men believe that the bombard ment of yesterday will be followed soon if it has not been followed already by a retienil dash of the Oermail warships into the Atlantic from the naval base at i more shots, one a little to the right, thi . . . , .

It has been known that the kaiser and his advisers have been planning one great coup for the German navy. The bom bardment of yesterday is looked upon only as a demonstration made particu larly for the purpose of calling off the watch of the British warships from the ships that have been held at Wilhelms Notes on the Game. Olliver, who played right guard, did not lower his reputation of last year as a star guard. While he played Alexander, who got six baskets during the game, only got one. Hooker, if he keeps up his fast play ing, will surely make a big help to the Spaulding team. The coach is surrounded by a fast bunch of substitutes. ITALIAN CHAMBER A UNIT.

A vote of confidence in the government ami its policies was adopted almost unanimously Tuesday by the Chamber of !eputics. Previous to the vote, rremier a!anlra ilelivereil a speech to the deputies in which He re- nllirmed his statement of last week that Italy's position was one of watchful neu trality. He said nothing had happened to warrant any change in that position. "What. I can guarantee." he declared, "is that the government will follow a purely Italian policy; but in saying this I do not mean that we will disregard the pol icies of the great power" or the group ing of the powers fighting for the su premacy of the world. Italy i satisfied in protecting her noble traditions and preparing for her great future." The premier refued to make any pre dictions as some members urged him to do. He said that the government would lie sincere, and that if it made mitake these would 1 paid for by tlw country. Hcgardiug what was already past, he de clared that Italy had a riht to proclaim her neutrality and that if she had bar gained fur it she would have dishonored tcr-clf. He concluded by asyinp: "Now i the time to lie silent and to act." haven and the Kiel canal. With a heavy force of British ships drawn down to the Yorkshire coast bv the raid of yesterday it was believed that the way would be left open for a great German fleet vir tually all the big ships at the naval base to make a dash for the open sea. For the Germans this means, in all probability that they are going out to their death. They are determined, how ever, to destroy whatever they can of British commerce and to work whatever destruction they can to British coast cities before they are themselves smashed by the British ships. Their programme, according to observers here, will be a fight and then a run for it. Their aim w ill be to do as much damage as possible to British commerce, and then if outnum bered seek haven in some neutral port. It is doubtless true that the same in formation that has been current in the innermost circles here has also been in the possession of the British admiralty olliee. Accordingly, it is Ixlieved that Sir Joht Jcllicoe lias lieen prepared for any sortie. It is thought here that the result that the Germans expected from the raid of yesterday has already hapened and that the vessels that bombarded Scarborough, llartltpool and Whitby have already lieen cut ofT from their base if not dis lodged. The German were prepared to lose the ships in this raid for the gener al etfect of the "demonstration." Whatever the result of yesterday's raid or the success of the proposed general dush for the open, it is believed here that the operations on the sea will Is- for the time the most momentous of the war other just to the left. As seen through my field glasses the aeroplane seemed to waver, as if it had lieen damage!. It did not seem to obey its steering gear, for it could not get away from the spot. "The next two shots fired almost sim ultaneously settled its fate. The first one eut oft a wing smoothly. The other was a square hit and the apparatus was scattered to the four winds. I have not seen such a beautiful shot in the whole war. The gun-pointer who fired it had already distinguished himself on several occasions, and he won the iron cross with to-day's achievement. The fragments of this aeroplane were picked up afterwards from a wide reach of ground, but of the aviator only a few bits were found. "Yesterday," the letter continued, "we set up some boards irf an abandoned posi tion to resemble a gun shield. Then we sawed off logs and painted them to look like cannon muzzles when placed in posi tion ls'tween tlte lioards. To-day the French peppered away at this supposed battery and fired 172 shots liefore their aviators could tell them that they had been duped."
