beaten by the Alliance aggregation still
they carried off the honors of the occasion.

Our Ball Game.
A very interesting game of ball was
played Sunday afternoon between the K.
of P's and M. W. of A's. Each team tried
to scare the other before the game began
but they lined up with great courage.
Mayor Buechsenstein exercised all his ex
ecutive and judicial authority as umpire.
He needed it all, too. It was intended
that only five innings should be played and
from the standpoint of errors it was a de
cided success. It afforded more amuse
ment to the spectators than the players.

horse's shoes. Though badly bruised and
weakened from loss of blood she will re
cover without any serious results we hope.
