A game of base ball was played
at the Hill grounds Sunday after

and the locals, resulting in a vic

their apearaiice on the grounds, a
badly patched up nine was lined up
to represent St. Johns. This, to
gether with the miserable exhibi
tion of a Montavilla man who es
sayed to do the umpiring, was the
cause of the locals' undoing. As
their opK)iients refused to play un

the home team submitted. Had

laxed their vigilance until the end.
Considering their field the scores of
these young ladies were the best of
them all. The happy ending of the
contest is that both secured the prize
they were after.
