noon, interest in this lino of sport
botween tho companies of tho N

been much douo along this line
for a short timo and Oo 13, seeing
lint tho mon wore losing interest,
decided to start tho bnll rolling
again by challenging Oo. G.
They won from tho natives by a
score of 701 to 725 and this has
wakened tho members of Oo G to
a realization of tho situation.

champions, they bavo Mien lib'
hind by luck of practice They
do not liko this state of affairs and
have challonged tbo members of
Oo 0 to another shoot to tako
placo in tho near future. This
will probably bring tho other
companies to a realization of the
situation and will undoubtedly
call forth moro challenges.
Saturday's shoot was not as
good as a great many that tho G
and B men bavo indulged in but

vith limited practise with thoir

phasized beyond all expectation.
The houso was densely packed,
tho program opening with tho
comedy force "You and 1" in
which Post and Billy Howatd
tako rospootivoly tho part of Irish
and Dutch comedian. Tuu ludi
crous situations nnd misunder
standing that ensuod can easily
bo imagined. Mr. Post's appear
ance was tho bomb that caused
shouts and choors to explode,
making tho rafters rattlo. It is
not tbo rulo to offer tributes at

tho proverbial oxception. The
son of a lending lumborman passed
up a ton foot redwood railroad
tiro with tbo word "Jim" paintod
on either sido and a few yards of
green ribbon tied in a bow at the

and his national color. An im
