The game was not so exciting as
some of the previous contests this
season. There was not enough bat
ting and not enough men on bases to
keep the grandstand people on their
toes, but the man who enjoys a clean
ly played game got more than his
money's worth.
Lennon. who pitched for Benning
ton, had bis game in hand from the
first. He used Tare Judgment when

work and change of pace than speed,
He occasionally demonstrated, how-
ever, that he was capable of throwing

in excellent shape and his three-bag
ger brought in one of the runs.
Guyer, for the Ostranders, too, pitch
ed fine ball and he appeared to Im
prove as the game progressed. Only
once did Bennington bunch hits on
him. In the eighth singles by Cheney,
Bressette and Blanchan netted two
runs and put the game in the refrig
erator. He struck out 11 and had his
team been able to hit Lennon would
have had an even chance at the game.
While the game, barring Prlndles
spectacular catch in left which robbed
the visitors of a three-bagger, was
rather featureless, the eighth inning
was productive of enough excitement
to make up for any deficiency in this
line. Spring, the Bennington catcher,
and "Marty" Qulnn, the Ostrander
second baseman, had a mlxup at the
plate that looked like the beginning
of a small riot. Qulnn, who was the
second man up, had been given a -base
on balls after Nestor had been thrown
out trying to steal second. Qnlnn
stole both second and third. Mahar
the third man at bat, waa passed to
first and started for second. Spring
didn't hesitate to send the ball to Ben
ton at second who returned it so quick
ly to the plate that Qulnn who was at

When he realized that the Bennlng

He failed to inflict any injury on the
auburn-haired catcher but his shoe

ball and ln all probability It was no
love pat The Ostrander Becond base
man at once put up his hands
"sailed in" for revenge. There were
a few nasses and Spring caught the
Albany man by the front of the shirt,
shook him as a terrier does a rat,
threw him and was preparing to ad
minister severe punishment when by

There had been one mlxup at the

Los Angeles. Cal., June 19. Hermon
Gerson. head animal keeper in the
East Lake Zoo. was seized by both
arms by a big male tiger while wash

stripped both arms or llesn rrom tne
elbows down and almost pulled his
arms rrom the sockets, his wiie came
to the rescue and by Jamming the
beast ln the eyes and breast with a
pitchfork pried its teeth and claws op-
As the tiger's Jaws closed on Ger

Ing a small hosa turned the nozzle In
the animal's face. The tiger placed
a huge paw on Gerson s other arm
and the keeper began to call to his
wife who was in the Gerson residence
near the zoo.
The roar of the tiger had created a
pandemonium among the animals and
as Mrs. Gerson sank the pitchfork
again and again the tiger's snarls and
yells redoubled. The fight between the
woman and the man-eater lasted sev-
eray minutes ending only when Mrs.
Gerson directed the prongs of the fork
against the animal's eyes. With his
arms released Gerson sank to tne
ground and was later removed to the
hospital. Mayor Harper ordered the
bars of the tiger s cage strengthened.

Watertown, N. Y.. Jun6 19. After
deliberating for three hours the jury
ln the case of Mar Farmer charged
with the murder of Mrs. Sarah Bren-

The accident happened as the result
of running two cars together, known
in railroading as a "double header.
The cars left North Adams at 10:30,
one following the other closely, and
were due ln Williamstown at 11
About half a mile east of the Boston
and Maine depot in Williamstown the
railway descends a hill and It waa at
the foot of this hill, at what Is known
as Cole's Grove, that the crash came.
The head car, in charge of Motor
man KVnnuf WiHeht nf WllllAITlHtOwn
and conductor Ernest Roberts of Ad-
ams, was descending the hill when
the trolley left the wire, and it was
brought to a stop at the foot where
the tracks round a curve. The troi
ley rope was found to be broken by
Conductor Roberts, and he climbed to
the top of the car to replace the trol
ley and tie the rope.
The car was left In darkness. The
second car came down the hill at a
fast rate of speed and the motorman,
James Iee, says that he saw nothing
until the crash came. Bystanders
claim that the second car carried no
headlight, but the employes would
neither affirm nor deny this.
There were 99 people In the first
car and 97 ln the second, and when the
cars collided they were thrown over
seats and ontoN the floor. The rear
car crashed comnlotely through the
rear end of the first car, demolishing
completely the two rear seats of the
nrsi ca ano me two nrsi seais or iue
second car. The heavy Iron dash
boards were twisted, and the wooden
timbers were 'mashed Into kindling
wood. '
Into this debris the persons on the
first seats ofthe second car were
thrown and entangled, and it was with
difficulty that some of them were ex
tricated. Motorman, Lee did not have
time more than to set his brakes and
he was ottll in his position when the
accident occurred. He is hurt worse
than any one else.
The accident occurred at a lonely
spot and there was little opportunity
to rurnisn immediate renei ior tne in-
lured. Their cries for help could.be
heard a long distance and when those
who were hurt the worst were remov-
ed from the wreck they Bhrleked wun
pain. Near by on a hill was the house
of V. AiiBtln Blair which he opened
for the Injured. Those who appeared
ln the worst condition were taken
there while the others were stretched
out on the grass. As soon as possible
cars were sent from North Adams and
In a short time several Williamstown
physicians arrived. After the injured
had been temporarily cared for they
were placed on a car and sent to the
North AdamB hospital. The . others
who were able were pjaced n another
car and sent to their homes In Wil
llnmutnwn. .
Both cars were enroute.to WilllJins-
town and all of the people on them
lived there. Several who might have
taken a BennliiKton car and been car
rled to a nolnt at least a halt mile
nearei their homes hurried ln North
Adams to take tho cars running to the
main part ot Williamstown and by bo
doing they might, even though they
had to walk Borne distance, arrive
home a few minutes earlier. And a
strange part ot the accident was that
all ot these people were among tne
most seriously Injured. Tney were
the McClen family, who live In the
part of Williamstown known as River
side. Mrs. Alex McClen was one of
the worst Injured and was taken to
the Blnlr home until sent to the hos
nltal. The other members of the M&

could not be ascertained at first as the

that at first they paid no attention to
their own Injuries and lt is likely that
all of them will never be known. Wil
liamstown presented a peculiar scene
after the accident. Various homes
had members of the Xamlly suffering
from injuries, which were at first deem
ed slight but which before the night
passed required the services ot a pny
slctan. There were, too, a large num
ber of calls at each of the physicians'
offices and those who remained In town
had a busy night.

flrult to nlace. It has been a common
occurrence to run two cars, one follow.
