Cooper, with three compan

Bartman, of Independence,, and
Dick Westicott, of Salem, were
on a nnnung - trip ana were
camped at Surnmit. They at

It is said they er in a belliger

several minor engagements Were
flarrowly . averted througB the
pacifying efforts of Jehu Post.
Baldwin became involved in a
heated controversy with Roy
Norton, bnt they had about set

Cooper deliberately struck Nor
ton who is quite a small man.
The matter was dropped for the
time, but after the danee was
over, about 3 0 ciock in ine
morning, an elder brother of
Roy's, talking the matter over
with Cooper, said' that no white
man would strike another wnen
he was in conversation with
some one else. William Bald
win overheard the remark, nd
said that he could whip the man
who said that Cooper wasn't a
white man. Norton said that he
had made that remark, and
Baldwin knocked him down:
As Norton fell, Baldwin whirled
rand struck John Post. These
two were engaged in a lively
give-and-take, when Cooper
drew his revolver, ran areued
behind Post, and, fired. The
ball entered Past's right forearm
passing through the fleshy por

-Cooper and his companions
left the dance hall. Two of
them left shortly after, for Inde

Cooper and another made a de

ably the poorest exhibition of the
game ever 6en on the home

Albany College has been rep

long as lias tho OAC, and yet
Saturday's victory was tho sec
ond ia her history. Notwithr
standing her many defeats, her
ardor has never been dampened,
and her persistence has at " last
been rewarded. She has wrested
victory from the ones prond pos,

however, that she has aver scored

' : THE GAME.
Alhany won the toss and chose
the east goal. Sha kieked off,
and the ball was placed for the
first scrimmage! on : O A C's 20
yard line. By a series oi plunges
through center and tackles the
ball was--steadily advanced to
Albany's 25 yard line," where it
was lost oa a fumble. On the
first line-up Albany tried the line
for a slight - gain. It -was soon
apparant that O A C had the
heavier eienand that she was
more affective In hitting the line,
but the visitors played a more
snappy , game ' and their team
work was far superior to that' of
the farmers. In fact, the latter
developed no interferenca daring
the game, and in defensive work
it was every man tor himself.
A vbeafitiful ran around the
end by Coates brought tha pig
skin to O A' Q's 20 yard line,
and Francis advanced , it areuad
the other end to the farmers' one
yard line, where they showed
what was in them by holding
the visitors for tho three flowas,
Just as they gained possession of
tee ball, time was called-for tBO
first half, neither "side having
scored. " ; ; 'y :'
OAC kicked off ia the seeoni
half. ' After a conple of ineffec
tual trials at the line Albany
punted to center. Tho farmers
pounded . the line and punted.
Albany sent Coates, who "was
easily the star performer of the
afternoon, off for another pretty
run, and he was downed on the
farmers ; tea-yard line, h Ywiee
Albany was catight for a loss,
then forming fora pant, Morrison
skirted the right end n a fake
for the first and only touchdown.
Goal was kicked. , Score, Albany
6, O A C, o. -
Tea minutes of play remained
and a series of punts, alternated
with an occasional trial at the
lino consumed the remaiader of
