won the seventh, five to six, because
Byers was weak at the cup. Lyon two
up. The eighlh went to ^yers, three
to five, owing to a wretched all-around
play by Lyon. It was in fact, his only
real miss of the day. Lyon now one
up. Byers got the ninth, four to sev-
en, after they had reached the green
in Iwa each. Lyon was xmfortunate
enough to lay hlmseli a stymie. The
match now square.
Lyon came within a hair's breadth
of losing the tenth but finally halved
in five by. a most spectacular stroke
out of a sand track. Lyon was weak
on his approach on the eleventh and
then, missing a put, Byers scooped
the hole and was now on© up. Lyon
took the twelfth, four to five. Byers
missing a put. Match again square.
The thirteenth and fourteenth were
halved in four each. On the latter
Byers rimmed the cup while Lyon
lost an infinitesimal put. Byers got
the fifteenth ,four to five, his oppon-
ent's approach being short. Byers now
one up. Lyon topped his drive on
the sixteenth, but by running down
a long put, halved the hole in four.
The seventeenth was halved in five
after both made misses at the cup.
This left Byers one up and one to
go. The home hole was won by Byers,
three to four. He overdrove the green
but Lyon also used too much force
and could not run down for three. This
gave Byers the match by two up.

TROLLEY CAR ACCIDENT.
Terrible Collision Avoided by Pas-
sengers' Presence of Mind.
New York. July 15.—A crowded
! trolley car rammed the side of 4 fly-
ing train on the Staten Island Rapid
Transit railroad near Clifton, 8. 1.,
late tonight. The lives of many pas
sengers were menaced. A huge hole
was torn in the side of the fourth cai
of the train and all of the windows
It was only the bravery of a dozen
men on the trolley car that prevented
a disaster. The trolley car was di-
rectly in the path of the train when
the electric power gave out. The mo-
torman and conductor, realizing the
danger, called upon the male passen-
gers to assist in pushing the trolley
out of the way.
There was little time to spare, as
the headlight of the engine could al-
ready be seen. By prodigious efforts
the men succeeded In shoving the
car clear of the railroad tracks. In
his haste the motormpji neglected to
turn off the power. It was due to
this that the accident occurred.
The trolley passeugers had already
climbed back Into their seats and
were waiting for power to be restored
to the trolley wire when the train
arrived opposite. Then, as sudednly
as it had gone, the power returned,
and the car darted forward at top
speed. It struck the fourth car to-
ward the forward end and ripped the
side out for a dozen feet. The trolley
car was almost overturned. The
train was coming from South Beach,
and was filled wPh women and chil-
dren. Their screams created a panic
ahd in the stampede to escape many
were cut and bruised. No one was se-
riously Injured enough to require the
services of a physician.

WHY PURITAS CURES
Many persona labor under the delusion that to have
curative power water must have something in it or in
other words be a "mineral" water. They do not realize
that chief value of water in the system lies in its cleansing
power; that the purer the water is the greater will be its
cleansing, curative and health-sustaining qualities. Think
for a moment of the futility of trying to keep the system
dean with a water that you can't wash your hair with.
Try the experiment of washing your hands with hard wa-
ter without the addition of soap or any softening agent,
and you will begin to realize what a job your digestive
and eliminating organs have when you give them nothing
but hard water to work with. Then again, the mineral
elements contained in all the so-called "natural" waters
in and around Oklahoma City are, to many persons, posi-
tively poisonous. They cause bloating and fermentation
in the stomach; ruin the digestion and destroy the appe-
tite, They break down the kidneys and inflame the blad-
der. They choke the circulation, destroy the healthful
glow of the skin, enfeeble the system's resisting power
and render the patient susceptible to every passing con-
tagion. If, therefore, you are not perfectly well, the
chances are that the mineral elements in your drinking
water have played a prominent part in causing your ill-
ness, and it would be the part of wisdom to phone 792 or
call at the Puritas company's plant at 28 West Fourth St.
and arrange to give Puritas a trial. If the results from
its liberal use are not entirely satisfactory .just tell us so
and we will give your money back. Puritas is the purest
water in the world and will do more to restore and main-
tain health than any other agent. Phone 792 or call at
28 VV. Fourth St.
