ATTEMPT TO WIPE OUT A FAMILY. Blsnlphate of Carbon Poured Over a Bay City Woman's CoaL Bay City, Mich Nov. 27. An at tempt to wipe out a whole household by a novel plan was made at the home of Mrs. Hiram Cone, of Adams street. Her family consists of two small chil dren, an apprentice girl and Miss Parker, a dress-maker. Mrs. Cone no ticed that . her coal and wood were mysteriously disappearing and she made a remark within the hearing; of a neighbor to that effect. Shortly aft erward, having put her coal into a piano box so that the cover could be locked, unknown to Mrs. Cone some one poured bisulphate of carbon over the coal, so that when it waa placed In the stove at night a terrible gas was generated while the family was asleep. The gas was of such volume that the stovepipe could not carry It off. It overflowed Into the house, permeating every room and nearly asphyxiating the occupants. They were aroused with great difficulty. Miss Parker faint ing twice, remaining insensible for an hour the second time. The children who slept near the floor were the least affected. The boarders upstairs did not go to sleep, as they detected the gas before retiring. All of the silver ware in the house was turned black. No arrests hve yet been made. ' BLIZZARD IN THE NORTHWEST.

Travel is entirely stopped. Brown's Valley, Minn., reports the storm very severe in that vicinity. The weather is not extremely cold. In West Superior. Wis., the blizzard turned into a sleet storm and all traffic In the city is suspended. Street cars are not running, and but little effort is being made to operate them. Aberdeen and Chamberlain, S. IX, report the storm as of a decidedly blizzardly char acter, and it is feared there will be con siderable Iofs of stock on the ranges. The wind is very high and the snow is drifting badly. The thermometer stands at about zero, but the indica tions are for much colder weather, which will greatly increase the discom fort and cause considerable hardship.

GREAT BATTLE 09 TEE GJDD.0IT. Windy City Men's Friends Pleasantly Saiw prlaed at tho Score of 7 to 6 la Favor of Their Team Featam or the Straggle tho CoMeenm Northwestern aaa Win consla Play In Wind, Bain and Mad to a Tio Thanksgiving Record. Chicago. Nov. 27. In the big build ing in which five months ago Bryan was nominated for the presidency 15. 000 cheering foot ball enthusiasts saw the eleven from the University of Mich igan defeated in one of the most desperately contested games ever played Chicago. The score, waa Chi cago, 7; Michigan, 6. The result was a surprise to everybody, for although the Chicago eleven professed the utmost confidence of winning, this feeling was not shared by their supporters, who at best looked for them to hold their op ponents down to a small score. To Herschberger, Chicago's full-back, be longs the honor of winning the game; his punting was one of the features. and his goal from the field, kicked from the forty yard line, went cleanly be ween the goal posts. He easily out classed Hogg, the Ann Arbor full-back. and time and again his long kicks saved his team. Chicago could do but little with Michigan's line, most of her gains being on end plays, in which she displayed splendid Interference, or by tne kicking of Herschberger. Hamill and Firth, Chicago ends, both dis tinguished themselves by some very pretty tackles. Ptngree A boot the Whole Thing. On the Michigan side Pingree in the first half was the "whole thing," the plucky little fellow seldom falling to make the required distance. He, how ever, was forced to retire in the second half, his place being taken by Ferbert, who was equally effective. Michigan made frequent use of the famous Princeton tackle and guard back plays. which were very effective. But few tricks. however, were resorted to by either side, both relying on straight, hard foot ball. One thing at least was settled by the game, and that is that indoor foot ball is a success. The men had no trouble in catching punts, and foot ball was played on its merits, without the handicaps of wet field or strong wind. , Toot Ball by Eleetrle Light Toward the end of the second half it got very dark, and the spectators were treated to a novelty in the shape of foot ball by electric llstht. The ele ments outside seemed all In favor of making foot ball almost a swimming match, and a strong south wind ren dered punting, one of the points of foot ball which every one understands and appreciates, out of the question to the side which was unfortunate enough to be playing against the wind. The sheltering walls of the big Coliseum obviated this and the game was played on a field with ideal springiness. The scene was a brilliant one. On all sides of the field were the waving colors of the rival colleges, with here and there a sprinkling of the cardinal of Wiscon sin, the blue of Yale, the red and white of Cornell and the yellow and black of Champaign. Tin-Horn Fiend Waa on Band. In the boxes were many groups of gaily dressed women with their escorts. The noise was simply terrific. Every one seemed to be possessed of a tin horn, and a determination to blow it longer and louder than his neighbor. Class and college yells and songs of all kinds, were started up with or without provocation, and at times the play had to be stopped on account of the inabili ty of the players to hear the signals. The result of the game decidedly com plicates the situation as regards the western championship. Every team with the exception of Wisconsin has now suffered at least one defeat, and their tie with the Northwestern yester day gives them but little ground for claiming the champlonshlo. A summary of the game follows: Michigan won the toss and Hersch berger kicked oft for Chicago to Mich igan's five-yard line. The pig-skin was fought up and down the field several times, until Herschberger again punted to Michigan's five-yard line. Hugg tried to return the compliment, but Roby broke through and blocked the kick, the ball bounding back Into the benches, and Hogg was forced to make a safety touch-down, scoring 2 for Chicago. The ball was brought out and punted to Clark to the forty-five yard line. Hamill gained five through the right tackle. The ball then passed back to Herschberger for a try at goal. He succeeded, the ball going squarely between the posts. Score 7 to 0 in fa vor of Chicago. The half ended with the oval near the cent?r of the field. Changes were made by both teams in the second half. For Michigan Pingree was replaced by Fer bert, Drumheller going in as quarter back, for Chicago G. Clarke took Coy's place. "Ikey" Clarke going in as quarter-back. In the second half Hogg kicked off to the Chicago goal line. Ter rific play for about fifteen minutes fol lowed without decided advantage for either side, until Ann Arbor got the ball to the Chicago twenty-yard line. By this time it had grown so dark that it was difficult to distinguish the play ers, and a long wrangle ensued. Some one made fifteen yards around Chica go's right. Caley was shoved along another five yards, and a moment after Hennlnger made a touch-down. Fer. bert kicking an easy goal. Score Chi cago. 7: Michigan. 6. Then the electric lights were turned on. and every one stgninea ras approval by yelling much as hoarse throats would permit. The-battle continued with vigor until the call of time, but no more scoring resulted, the final score being Chicago. : Michigan, a. JfORTIJ WESTER X A.XO WISCOXSITV Came Played in a Driving Bala, Wiad an a Sea of Mod. The battle at Evans ton between the I University of .Wisconsin and North western university was a hard fought one. a driving rain and wind prevailing aurtng the entire fray, and tt-e griilron beUig simply a sea of mud. The first half, while neither aide scored, waa clearly Wisconsin's, as after the kick- off the ball was almost continuously in Northwestern territory. From the start of the second half th weather conditions favored Northwestern, as the Bad&era had to face the strong v!nd and heavy rain. The Methodists carried the ball with scarcely an Inter ruption to Wisconsin's five-yard i:n?, where a terrific battle waa fought wlCi several exchanges of the ball. It ended in a touch-down made by Ploane. and the goal was kicked by Van Duser. Wisconsin tied the score In the Iat fifteen minutes of play on a bvl fumble by the North westerns on their own ten-yard line. A terrific onslaught by Richards knocked the ball frjm the Northwesterns' hands and It was fol lowed over the line by Carroll, whoae playing was one of the 'feat ures of the day. The result of the playing was that each side scored six. The ball was rlnaa to Wisconsin's fifteen-yard line when time was called. BOSTOX ATHTK FAIL TO WIS. Athlrtie Clan That Ha. a Big Record Bested by a Chinas Tram. The proud colors of the Boston Athlotic association went down la the mud yesterday before the cherry and black of the Chicago Athh tic association, the wcrti-niers wining by a score of 15 to 6. The teatn that had ix-atcn Harvard and almost every othT Imiwirtar.t east ern club with llie reception of Tale, was defeated, despite the fact that the Oh ice so dub had tip.! ted s'x of Its star members. Chicago won the toss and the game opened with magnificent work on both sides, hut Chicago scared a touch-don within a few minutes, and failed to kick goal. Hullard. of Boston, soon made a magnificent forty- yard run, and nearly scored, but the ball was pushi-d hack, and within ten minutes Chicago scored a second touch down, egain failing to kick goal. The half ended with Chicago 8 and Bos ton nothing. Rain became worse In the second half and the footing was frightful. Chicago scored a third touch-down after aliout fifteen minutes' play, but failed again to kick the goal. The easterners now fought desperately to avoid the ignom iny of a shut out, and with magnificent rushes, going through tackle and around ends, forced a touch-down and kicked a goal. But a few minutes more of play remained, the final score be ing 12 to ft. Following are the scores in brief of the most Interesting games of the day: At Chicago University of Wisconsin. 6; Northwestern university. 6; Chica go Athletic club, 12; Boston Athl tic club, 6: Chicago university. 7: Univer sity of Michigan. 6: at Annapol s la fayette college, 13; Naval Cadets. : at Philadelphia Pennsylvania, 32: Cor nell, 10; at New York Brown universi ty. 24: Carlisle Indians. 12: at Omaha- Omaha, 0: Iowa. 0; at Lafayette.
