"Chili" Adams proteges came back
lnto.tho second game with' blood in
their eyes. This however in no man-
ner affected thoir sight for the goal
and by their skillful long shots they
forced the Wildcats to loop more free
throws than they in order to win tho
victory. From tho field they found
the basket 17 times the same num
ber which the Morrismcn found it
With 0 out of 17 nttempts the Wild
cats had a 5 point margin in the Mus
tangs who were able to cage only four
out of their 10 attempts. Powell and
Dowdy tied for high point man mat
ing 13 points apiece.
Hill dribbled up the court and
found the basket for tho first score
of tho game. Casady and Dowy sank
two long shots and Coons ad Powell
duplicated the feat. Tho game see
sawed along with first ono and then
the other sido leading until near the
end of the first- half. Hill made a
pretty pass to Richards who mado tho
goal and the half ended with tho
Abilcno men leading 22 to 21 never
to bo headed again.
At the start- of the second half
the" Wildcats uncorked a dazzling ral
ly that put them 5 points ahead of
their opponents. Thrush and Powell
were tho big factors in this regenera
tion. Tho Oklahomtins stopped the
rally by calling time out and the
teams rocked along on even terras for
the rest of tho game. As in tho for
mer game. Rough play characterized
the last part of the game Hurley and
Hill going out on personals.

him from the chill of tho night air.
Finding nothing else to slip on ho
slipped on tho top step nnd glided
quietly downstairs. He stole out tho
back door and along tho flower or-
bored walk to where ho thought seem-
ed tho sourco of tho noise. He saw
a beautiful flower and stopped to
smell of it no there was no bee in
tho flower for bees don't get out after
dark. But Hard went on a few paces
and saw another beautiful flower and
stopped to smell it. So enraptured
was he that ho decided to go on but
ho had taken only a step or two and.
no no ho saw another beautiful
folwer and what do you think he did?
He stopped and smelled its inspiring
fragrance. Coming to tho corner of
tho house Hard very cautiously peer-
ed nround expecting to see somo sug-
gestion of tho possible meaning of the
rnckot but what wo you think he
did see? No not another flower but
he did see tho cause of the unearthly
disturbance Hard had solved tho
mystery his own bravery had con
qucrcd the darkness 'and led him
throuch tho unpleasantness of tho
nicrht to a solution of tho situation
But Hard was pleased to find that the
commotion was a friendly ono for he
saw that the cause of it was some lit-
tle moonbeams playing on the sido of
the house i
Now this untimely awakening lends
to a deeper mystery yet and ono that
is the. initial in this story. When
Hard returned to his room he found
that his watch had stopped. Light'of
his life was that watch it was his
first ono and to him tho only ono.
Why had it stoppcdl I He could see
no connection with the preceding
trouble. Hard slept no moro that
When morning came Hard set about
to solve the second mystery tho mys-
tery of tho stopped watch. It had not
run down for it needed no winding
Ono after another jeweler was tried
but no one Beemed to bo able to solve
the mystery. It was evident that this
solution should'be found in a few min-
utes but who was a close enough ob-
server tb detect it. Every wheel
seemed nil right. Finally there was
recommended to Hard a certain
wheelbarrow mechanic. Frantio in
his efforts to bring back to life tho
action of his sacred time-keeper Hard
sought this repairman of mono-
wheeled vehicles to get his help in
Only a day or so later Hard was
rescorcd to his common happy na-
ture and his face beamed with joy
as ho received tho packago contain-
ing his Ingersoll and bearing tho at-
tached bill which was sufficient ex-
planation for it read this way:
"Bill rendered for work done;
Removing a tick
Cleaning dandruff off hair spring."
An entertainment of unusual clever-
ness was given the evening of JttnU'

man and Rita Foster at the Shipman
homo on North First street for tho
K6 Jo Kal Club and several guests-
The lovely big living room produced
a feeling of enso and freedom by no
means unwelcomo to the young ladies
Tho evening was spent in merriment
ad fun. Many games of a comic na-
ture were played; Tjio various com-
plications arising in tho gamo of
'Boots Without Shoes" afforded spe-
cial amusement and "Telegra'm" was
very interesting. In tho gamo of
"Stray Syllables" Miss Esther Stag-
ner won the prize a novelty pencil.
At tho conclusion of tho games re-
freshments consisting of fruit jcllo
topped with Whipped cream angel

Soon nf ter this each couple was
handed a piece of paper on which

After much speculation among the
youngsters present it was explain-

there was a mad rush for tho door.
