It wan a merry crowd that had assembled In tho Arcado bowling alley In Chanute. shortly after 9:3(( last night. The lola team of bowjers was there to play a game with the Chanute team and interest in the outcome of the contest was intense. Spectators watched each player Intently and applauded the skill of the bowler. Two games had been played, and the third one was commenced shoryy after II o'clock. At 11:30. the turn of Kd. Broderson. a member of the Tola team, was reached. He' bowled the heavy ball along the alley and missed what was considered a comparatively easy shot for him.. "I can't hit "em tonight, someh'ovi'," Broderson said to a member of the lola team who was standing near. Then he made his last bowl. Before the pin boy had straightened up the pins, Broderson had stepped over the cfaute used for the return of the. balls. He attempted to sit down in his-chair but fell prostrate over it. But the Wink of an Eve, Then Death. "When Broderson fell, members of both the lola and Chanute teams noticed it quickly. They ran to his side, lali him tenderly upon the floor and dashed water in his face. While this emergency treatment was being administered. Doctors Mathis and Johnson were summoned. Mr. Broderson gasjied two or three times as though struggling for breath and then sank back limp upon the floor. -^yimniha lArairlnna arrived, Brod was extremely popular and his cigar store was always.a place of welcome for friend or stranger. In his quiet way, he was always in the front of every good move which Wfis for the interests of lola. He was identified with progress in his quiet way. giving his Influence and money without stir or uoise. E^rery one bore the utmost .esteem for him and his name was a bynonym for honesty, sincerity and manliness. Mr. Broderson had been a resident of lola for about nine years and was 40 years of age. He was a cigarmaker by trade and shortly after coming here opened a retail cig<ir stoiie and news stand at li:: West Madison avenue with a partner, Mr. Morain. Several months ago, Mr. Morain sold his interest to Mr. Broderson who has since conduoted the business. He made his home in lola with E. A. Ilirr, 417 South Chestnut street. He was unmarried and had no relatives in tbiH city. He was a memi)er of the Knights of Pythla« and the Cigarmakers' union. He had no relatives In this city. If Is probable that A. Broderson will come to lola to take chari^ > of the store belonging to the deceased.

" Broderson Feared Death? Perhaps it was with same misgiving; that Ed. Broderson. as he was familiarly known, started in the game at Chanute. When he left the train at I Uie Chanute i)a.--scncer station, be seemed unusiiallv depressed. I'tittlii); his hand over his chest. • nnar thn heart, Mr. Broderson said to ClaiKio Tucker: . , "I've got a pressing down pain rlcht here." AM through tli'' flrsl two VHIWPH. bowlers say. Broderson was not roll- Inc bis game. He was considered a skillful player and .vet he was rolKs- ing shots that when he was "richt" wer» easy for him.

At the regular meeting of lola Camp. No. 961, M. W. A. held in their hall last evening the above officers I were elected to serve during the com Ing year. The members of the order have come to look upon W. A. Cowan and L. L. N'orthrup as permanent fixtures in their respective offices. Both of these gentlemen are entfau^astlc workers in the order and have filled their offices in such a manner that the organization as a whole Is of the opinion that it would be almost a crime not to re-elect them year alter year. If Is a foregone conclusion that E. H. .Muri)hy of Leavenworth will be at the head of the order in this slate next year. With .Mr. .Murpliy in this position he will be associated with the national organisation in such a way that a wire can be )iu11ed for Kansas, looking forward some three year.* henre when there is a vacancy in the cffiro of national banker for the order, members of the local camp are planning to make a strong effort to place L. !>.

XtaftjO-f the. principal reasons j-fei- bringing this subject up at Ihlft time is that it requires as much campaign work to elect a man to a na- iiaiJont!l office in this onier as it does to eieit a governor of the state of Kansas.
