noon between Mill number one and
Mill number two was about the classi
est. game on the local diamond this
season. Not until Saturday did we
realize that we had enough material
to make up two good ball clubs.
When we tell you that mill number
two defeated mill number one by the
score of 5 to 3, you can readily see
that it was a closely contested affair.

ber one with John Orr receiving. In
the sixth inning Verner was succeed
ed by Humphries. Enloe was on the
mound for Mill number two with Tay
lor receiving. After the third inning
Gibson relieved Enloe who was suffer

was held scoreless, until the eigth in
ning. In this inning Grant at third
played football with a couple of easy
rollers after two were out. With two
runners perched on the sacks. John
Orr caught one of Gibson's spitters
on the nose for three sacks. He scor
ed a moment later on an infield out.
In the ninth with one out Mill num
ber one got a runner on first and
second when Grant went down to deep
short to get a cigarette from the
short stop both runners advanced a
bag. Jimmie Smii hit an easy roll
er to pitcher and was tossed out at
first. Goodwin was retired at first
ending the game. For Mill number
two Lokey, Harper and McDonald
started. Fallows and Orr hit hard for
Mill number one. Gordan A. John
