The Indians came, they saw, but
they did not conquer.
The Toledo baseball team came near
handing the Slietz Indians another
shutout on the local diamond Sunday
when they gave them a drubbing to
the tune of 14 to three. The Indians
scoring all came In the eighth Inning
when two little singles, two errors on
the part of Toiodo playcrn and a stol
en base a'.lowed them to put three men
across tho plate. With the exception
of this one inning the Indians never
jad a chance to score.
Hall, pitching for Toledo, allowed
but two hits up to the eighth inning
and it ntire looked like another goose
egs for the Red Men. However, the
locals played a little loose in the
eighth and the Indians managed to
oave themselves a shut-out.
Adams, Siletz pitcher, had it all
doped out that he was going to get

they administered to him at Newport

Navy, when approached by the

this connection, however, it is
necessary to bear in mind that

wered: "All I have to say is I am in
nocent of this crime I am hanging for

fcurcpe Greets Former Pres. Taft
'. Former President Taft made no flamboyant announcement of his
trip to Europe this summer, still he is being received with enthusiasm
and interest at every eenter visited. In London he was honored at
state affairs and dinners in a way befitting his ability. The fact that he
is now chief Justice of the United States impresses Europe. The tour
is developing into triumphal trip not unlike that tendered other presi
dents on visits there. Picture shows Mr. and Mrs. Taft arriving in
France. It also shows how the former president has lost in weight

not let her campaign interfere with
housework, as one wide awake
photographer found when he called
at the home. Political wiseacres say
Mrs. Olson is piling up hundreds of
votes in her campaign.
