well played by both team. The
only thing that marred the game
was roughness. This wan all due to
the StevetiMon referee, who wan

the president of the league, to bar
out all roughness. But he failed to
do thlH, allowing the boys to roll on
the floor with the ball In-fore blow
ing the whistle for held ball.
The first half ended with Steven

Klver team'H work not being up to
the staudnrd. In the tiecond half,
Hood Klver showed the visitors
what team work was, getting three
baskets one after the other. The
rt'Ht of the game wan one thrill after
another, as shown by the deafening
applause from the 2.'0 spectators,
The flual score was 13 to IS In favor
of Hood Klver.

GOES TONEW HOME
L. E. Morse, In-tter known to n
host of friends at Hood Klver as
"Lou" left Monday for his new
home at Spray, Oregon.
Mr. Morse came to Hood Klver a
good many years ngo and during
his long residence here was Identified
In many ways to his credit with the
growth and development of the city
and valley. In the early days he
was interested In various ventures
that brought development and pros
perity to the country. He served
the city as one of Its councllmen for
two terms and later wo appointed
the first sheriff of Hood Klver county.
He declined to become a candidate
at the end of his term although It
was doubtful If any In the county
could have beaten him for the ofllce.
In public and private life Mr.
Morse, to use a common expression,
"has always been the same" to
everybody, and left Hood Klver with
the best wishes of n large circle of
friends for a long life and a highly
prosperous one. Mr. Morse will
have charge of a 3,000 acre hay and
cattle ranch at Spray, of which he
is part owner.

Th. Trick of Breathing Flames an,
Sparks From tha Mouth.
Fire tricks wore practiced In very
ancient times. The first- known tire
breather was a Syrian slave named
Eunus, a loader In the Servile war In
Sicily, 130 B. C. He pretended to have
Immediate communication with the
gods. When desirous of inspiring his
followers with courage he breathed
flames and spark!) from his mouth.
In order to accomplish this rent V.U-
nns pierced a nutshell at both ends,
and, having filled it with some burn
ing substance, he put It lu his mouth
and breathed through it. The same
trick Is performed today In a more
appnoved manner. The performer rolls
some flax or hemp into a ball about
the size of a walnut, which he lets
burn until It is nearly consumed.
Then he rolls around It more flnx
while it Is still burning. By this
means the fire Is retalued In the ball
for a long time. He slips this ball
Id to his mouth unpercelved and
breathes through it His breath re
vives the fire, and be sustains no la-
Jury so long as he Inhales only through
Various theories have been advanced
to account for other feats of this f'rt
performed by the ancients. An old

HUBBARD STARS IN
There nre hundreds of persons un
dergoing a series of song and dance
stunts at the Orpheuiu In Portland
this week In order that they may
hear a twenty minute "heart to
heart" from Ells-rt Hubbard, the
Royeroft philosopher and editor of
the Philistine and Fra magazines of
East Aurora, New York.
It was a startling thing for many
of the meni'icrs of the floek to think
of their meek Pastor Hubbard In the
glare of the footlights, when It was
fitst announced that the sage of Erie
county had taken a brief engagement
on the Orpheuiu circuit. Mr. Hub
bard went on first as an experiment,
and when he found that many of his
friends came there to bear him and
that he reached a great group of per
sons who hail not ls-en touched bv
his writings or his more formal lec
tures, be was pleased and resolved
to spend a few weeks each year In
vaudeville In the larger cities of the
In speaking of his experiences on
the circuit. The Fra said: "Many
experiences come and go and are lost
In the dust-bin of forgetfulness. This
one will never pass. I made new
friendships, and was one with a
strange world, separate and divorced
from the world of trade the world
of mimicry and mimes, of players to
whom 'The play's the thing' loving,
tender. Intense, Innocent, loyal to
tnelr art, living lu dreams, grips,
boarding houses, steamer trunks and
emotions, the children of the singe.
Afterlife's fitful play may they sleep
well. Ois bless them all."
Of course Mr. Hubbard Is well paid
for his 40 minutes work a day, It I--
Ing understood that the managers
give ti I in $1.j00 a week. He Is always
glad to meet people, and during this
week In Portland the apostle of jov
and work will lie entertained by the
Press Club, and today he Is to Is? the
guest of the Ad Club at luncheon,
when he will speak on "How to
Lose Money on Advertising." Mr.
Hubbard Is a great advertiser for
himself and other people, and It Is a
question whether he can tell the ad
men how to do something he has
never done himself. At the close of
the Orpheuiu engagement In Port
laud Mr. Hubbard will leave the
stage, and Is coming to Hood Klver
to deliver his lecture, "The March of
the Centuries," In the Heilbronner
hall Monday evening.
Shorter Hours For Hair Carvers

close at 7. p. m., except Saturday,
when they will be kept open nntll 10
