Getting uj) from his bed while ap
parently in a state of somnambulism.
Frank Webster, an inmate of the
Mute School, this morning deliberate
ly walked to an open window and
leaped to his death below, falling
some 30 feet and breaking his back.
Webster was IT years of age, and
together with eight other boys was
sleeping in the dormitory. About 3
o'clock at least that is the hour
fixed by the superintendent he arose
from his bed while asleep, and with-,
out disturbing or awaking any of the
other boys, went to the window and
leaped out. About 4 o'clock one of '
the other boys had occasion to arise !
and desiring to determine the state
of the weather looked out, and saw
Webster's dead body lying on the
Dr. Van Winkle was called and af
ter an examination, stated that the
boy's back was broken in the fall
and that death had come Instantly.

The Buylnar Power of $1.75.
A little money sometimes buys a
good deal. For instance, take the
subscription price of The" Youth's
Companion for a year $1.75. If all
the good reading in the 52 weekly Is
sues of the paper were published in
book form, according to its kind, It
would make about 30 volumes of fic
tion, science, essays by famous writ
ers, household management and
economies, sports and pastimes for
boys, natural history, anecdotes, hu
mor, etc. The serial stories alone
would fill several volumes. Among
these is Ralph Paine's great story of
the Boxer Rebellion in China, "The
Cross and Dragon." Another is by J.
W. Schultz, who was adopted by the
Blackfeet when a boy. It Is called
"The Quest for the Fish-Dog Skin."
Another is a glorious girls' story by
C. A. Stephens, called "Julia Syl
vester." It Is the story of a "Mer
cer" girl in the pioneer days of Ore
Eon and Washington and that is
only part of the serials.
It will cost you nothing to send for
the beautiful Announcement of The
Companion for 1912, and we will send
with it sample copies of the paper.
Ho not forget that the new sub
scriber for 1912 receives a gift of
The Companion's Calendar for 1912,
Uthnpraphed in 10 colors and gold,
and an the issues for the remaining
weeks of 1911 free from the time the

HE IS MISSING AND HIS TEAM

LICE LAUGH AT THE STORY OF
HIS BEING SHOT.
Philadelphia. Oct. 19 Great ex
citement was caused hire today by a
report that a baseball crank had shot
Fred Snodgrass, the New York Giant
outfielder, who spiked Frank Baker
of the Athletics In the New York
game. For hours the whole police
force sought Snodgrass, who had
left the other members of the Giant
team in company with a stranger
when the team went to attend a
Snodgrass came to the Giants
three years ago from California. He
was originally a catcher, McGraw
picking him from a college nine. As
a backstop he was a failure, but this
year he was retained as a regular
Giant outfielder on account of his
Snodgrass is a daring base runner.
He denied he had tried to spike Bak
er, declaring they are the best of
friends. He said he had never
played "dirty ball", and that Baker
was playing his position incorrectly
or he would never have been hurt.
This statement added to the wrath of
the Quaker fans.
Knowing that several baseball
"bugs" had threatened to get even,
the police at first feared that Snod
grass had been decoyed away from
his team mates and that someone
had wreaked summary vengeance.
At 5 o'clock Snodgrass had not been
found. It was reported he had left
for New York.
The police laughed at the rumors
that the Giant outfielder had been
shot, declaring that If It were true,
they would know of It. Snodgrass'
teaui mates, too, r ailed the report ab
surd, but they Joined In the search
and MeGraw and his Giants all ad
mitted they would feel better when
they saw the b'g outfielder again.

AT THE GRAND
James' Forbes' comedy. In four
acts. "The Traveling Salesman," will
be the offering at the Grand opera
house on Monday, October 23. In
this, his latest efTort, Mr. Forbes has
reproduced life "on the road" as
successfully as he depicted life "be
hind the scenes'' In "The Chorus
The story of "The Traveling Sales
man," the scenes of which are laid
at Grand Crossings, a vlllnge In the
Middle West, opens on Christmas Day
The first act shows the Interior of the
railroad station, with the meeting of
the principal characters, Bob Blake,
the traveling salesman, and Beth El
liott, the pretty telegraph operator.
Beth owns a. piece of apparently
worthless land .which suddenly ac
quires value, since It is necessary to
a scheme of improvement planned by
the railroad, company. Blake's em
ployer tries to defraud the girl of her
property through a perversion of th t
law governing the sale of lands for
unpaid taxes. Of course, Bob Blake
comes to the rescue. The second act
transpires in the drummers' room In
the Elite Hotel, and here is played
the most laughable poker gnme ever
conceived by a playwright.
