End, but Was Compelled to
Battle for It.
Two errtrs, a total of nineteen «its,

thirteenth . Inning.
Don't that sound like a ball game?
There was one thing, however, which
marred tho pleasure of the.Gpthrlo fans
—Enid got tho long end of tho score,
winning in th first half of tho thirteenth
Inning after the local team had shut
them out for eleven straight innings.
Hard luck—of course, but also an ex-
hibition of ball playing.
The work of the local shortstop, back-
ed up by "Pop" Heed, caused the fans
extreme p*e.isure. k'orkonw.y accepted
chance after chance and fielded them
without a break, while "Pop" reached
out and g >t them and covered the bag.
Time after time, when it seemed that a
sure base hit had been made, the couple
worked together and blockd the game.
Warring came in for his ohare of tho
rood things and pujled many high fouls
. ut of the air, much to the displeasure
of tho visitors.
The game opened with Enid up and it
^Was in this Inning that the visitors walk-
ed away with a lead which It seemed
■would be impossible to overcome. Tho
locals, however, tied the score In the
sixth and from that on until the close ol

first and after Howmun had g:me out on
a long drive to H. Price, Isabel put one
down the foul line for one base, Price
followed and lined out a bare hit, Ken-
nedy came forward with another and
the bases were full. Jones stepped to
the rubbor and lined out one for two
bases r.nd Isabel and Price scored. Ken-
nedy was forced out and Brooks fouled
out to Warring. Guthrie could do noth-
ing in their half. Patterson was klllod
by an assist from Woods to J oner.

balls and Rood was retired by long drive
to Brooks. Score 2 to 0.

PARIS, June 19.—A beautiful, ele-
gantly clad girl of 18, who gave the
name of Marie Mangaine but Is said to
come of a prominent French family of
quite another name,, was brought Into
court today by burly gendarmes and
charged with a crime that marks her
us one of tho fastest-working criminal
adventuresses of the age If the alle-
gatior* of the complainants are true,
Mile. Mangaine has established a rec-
ord in swindling by getting away with
an expensive luncheon several elab-
orate gowns, hats and lingerie and a
motor ride, all within a space of'four
hours The girl will probably be held
According to the charge, Mile. Man-
gaine arrived at a fashionable hotel
on the Avenue d« 1'Opera, said slio
was tho wife of a French army officer,
whose name she gave, and engaged tho
best suite of rooms. After an expen-
sive luncheon in her apartments she
called for a motor car "a car without
a taxi, as It looked better." The car
came with a resplendent chauffeur
and she drove to a dressmaker's,
where she ordered a quantity of
clothes to be ready in a few hours.
From there she went to alingerio
shop and ordered a pile of garments.
These were brought to her hotel
where she went through them, re-
jecting some. Having selected what
she would keep she went downstairs
"to get change from the porter" At
tho door her motor wos still waiting
nnd she placed the lingerie In It and
drove back to the dressmaker's.
There she put on one of the new
gowns and had the others packed up.
She offered the use of her oar to the
dressmaker's son, who drove off in
It with the bill to present to her hus-
band, who, she said, would have ar-
rived at the hotel and would pay It.
She herself took a cab with one of
the dressmaker's g'rrl assistants to
carry the parcels.
Tho dressmnker's son on reaching
the hotel found only the lingerie shop
messenger, who was growing uneasy.

Pond Creek, Ok la. June 19—Wondering
list her his 17-yeur-oiu wife will soon
0 a widow or a divorcee, e. F. Lewis,
young Grant county farmer, is hiding
out In the Jungle and praying like Moses
In the Wilderness, that it will bo the
latte.- and not the former, in the mean-
time the young woman sits placidly on
the porch of the domicile of her hus-
band's folks lovingly caressing a forty-
live six-shooter while calmly waiting for
him to come within shooting distance.
>ung Lewis' predicament Is the un-
ha^'Py termination of a matrimonial pa-
per romance. Bis brldo was a Tennessee
mountain maid and he became acqustnt.
1 with her through tho marriage hrok-
age establishment, in the course of the
>urtshlp by correspondence, she loving-
ly told him that she was just past sweet
sixteen, with a face like on angel, a
figure like a Venus, a voice like a spring
zephyr, a disposition like a dove and
a wad of money big enough to strangle
He swallowed the bait, hook, line, girl
and all. After bringing her to his home
aqi money he forwarded, they were mar-
ried Then tlie beoutlful dream of Uio
lovelorn swain became a hideous night-
mare. Bis bride was found to be the di-
rect antithesis of what she had claimed.
Her temper was found to be so acrid
that it would turn vinegar sour. After
a particularly violent outburst, she puck,
ed her duds and went home to her ma.
Soon afterwards she exercised her wom-
an's prerogative and changed her mind
about deserting her spouse and notified
him that she was coming back. In the
meantime he had commenced suit for di-
Upon learning of his action after her
return the young bride became furious
and threatened to annihilate the whole
Lewis family If they did not persuodo
her husband to discontinue his action.
Lining them all up against the worm
rail fence In front of the farm, she told
them how unalterably she was opposed
to legal separation and emphasised her
remarks with the six-shooter. They Im-
mediately became converts to the anti-
divorce crusade and took her Into their
home as a member of tlie family In good
standing, and her husband promised to
love and cherish her again.
Under cover of darkiiVss that nlgnt,
however, he became a denerter, sneaK-
Inj; awray to the protecting cover of tne
tall timber. Since then he liafc been a
fugitive and has appealed to tho au-
thorities for protection. She still holds
the fort—and the six-shooter—and is
watting for him to come |n and give up
his heretical JdooH against the sanctity
of the marriage ties, or hio llfo.

Morse, the Old Ice King—In Court.
ZACOTGRE TT. yr.TJTTL£7TfTr. s/UDGZT XTtTYtt.
NEW york, June 19.—Justice for
Charles W. Morse* whom he regards as
benefactor and altruist, was the plea
which Martin W. Littleton. lawyer,
made In arguing a motion before the
United Statos circuit court of appeals
for a new trial In oehalf of the financier,
convicted last fall of the misapplication
of the funds of the Bank of North
Mr. Morse, under sentence of fifteen
years' Imprisonment in the fedral peni-
tentiary at Atlanta, Ga., and now In tho
Tombs, was not In court. His wife and
son were there from the start, and they
remained all day. following with closest
attention the Involvod tochnlcnlltles of
the hanking law as expounded by Bench
and bar. Mrs. Morse was affected deep-
ly at the morning session, and ouce she
way to tears.
"I am not appearing for Charles W.
Morse, the daring financier, who has
been the subject of press criticism and
public Kosslp," said Mr. Littleton, "but
only for Charles W Morse, the citizen,
against whom this monstrous indict-
ment was found."
Quickly running over the fifty-three
counts of the Indictment Mr. Littleton
noted that the allegations of conspiracy
has been weighed in the legal balance
and found wanting. At one point he
asked why it was that the Leslie K.
Whiting loan, which figures In the trans-
actions, had not been designated as fals^
entry. Henry L. Stlnson, once United'
States district attorney, who was con-
ducting the K"vernment side of the case,
declared there had been no time,
"Time!" exclaimed Mr. Littleton.
'There was time for the inferential
dragging lu of other transactions on
Which no proof was ottered. to gtvs
a malodorous aspect to tho dealings ut
from the way In which my client is talk-
ed about, was a dummy In Wall street,
except Charles W. Morse. Everybody,
It would seem, was a dust filled auto-
mation who worked the will of Charles
W. Morse. Morse had Influence and ho
had a right to have it. but it ridiculous
to soy he dominated everybody and ev-
erything In tho financial district."
Reference was made to ono of the
American Ice loans as having been
"sweetened" In tho course of Mr. Lit-
tleton's address, and the expression
seemed for a moment to puzzle Judges
Coxe and Noyos.
"Sweetening" is quite a well known
term In Wall street," observed Judift
La com be to his assoclatea.
''It is, Indeed," said Mr. Littleton
"and also in the classic tfuruk."
