The Ragged Fielding or Reed Lost
the Game to Richmond.
Tannehill Was Hit Hard. The "Blue
Birds" Could Not Touch Foster.
The Visitors Fielding Was
Wretched, Yet the "Truck- '
ers" Could Not Win.
Tho "Truckers" met the "Blue
Birds" again yesterday afteruooo und
the "Blue birds" won by a soute of 7
to 6, aud thereby bangs u sorrowful
tale. Yes, and, but uevertheiess true.
'1 lie game up to the fifth inniug was
absolutely a oDc-sided oue, for up to
that time tho home team had, through
tho raggod work uf the visitors in Hie
hold aud hits by Knox, lived, Dull,
Hargrove aud 1 bnrstoo, piled up tiro
tans, aud the Rieb moods bad four
naughts to their credit, But iu tho
"Birds' " half ol tho Uftb the spell was
brokeu and when the third man bad
been retired tho score stood 5 to 3, and
all through tho very raggod work ol
short stop Used, who gave the poorest
exhibition of playing "short" seen uu
the home grounds tbis season. In the
sixth, Foster pitched throe balls and
three "Blue Bird*" had fallen by the
Portsmouth was blanked in tbe
.soveuth, but the visitors, through er?
rors of Fuller and Heed aided by slut,
proceeded to pilo up three more runs,
makiug their score stand G to tho home
team's 5, Then there was great excite
moat, the evor faithful rooters for tho
'Truckers" were in a state of nervous
uncertainty and a many a sigh was
heard witu evident relief when the
wearers of the green aud grey tied the
score in tho eighth. The euontirage
iiirut; given tho homo boys by their
admirers had no effect, however, for
the Hichmonds started to, in the ninth
to win and they earned the ouly run
they niadn by tho bit's of Berte and
Kain, and Bebuu'u sacrifice, A, U,
Fester pitched a bUperh game, the
finest in tact that has been pitched ou
the homo grouuds, and it certaiuly
must bo very discouraging to bun to
have the same thing happen twice
agtuust the same team, viz., very rag?
ged support. Tbu tieldiug of the vim
tors was poor, very poor, their hitting
was iu kcepiug with their tieldiag.
Tho bitting of the home toam
was ail that could have been desired,
more, a great deal more tuau the hern
tolore invincible Tauuebill wished for.
The "Truckers" certainly fattened
their batting averago ou this young
aspirant for ualioual fame as a
"iwirler" and barring tho bad. very
bad work of Heed, tue "Blue Birds"
wuuld have left Portsmouth with the
percentage of throe games less, and
one of them would have been a emit
out. The batting and tlelthug of the
rest of the team was good, the playiug
of Hail being exceptionally tioo, and
tho work of .loanes, Knox aud Childs
bright, Tburstoa played his usual
game, lining out a three backer with

Can't help but be so. No matter what your wants may be, we stand ready
tosave money for you. Suit for best occasions. Yes, $ioor as much higher
as you want. $15 gets very superior.
As fine and good clothes to-day for $10 as formerly for $15.
It's wasting money -to pay $10 or $12 for Suits sold by us $5 and $6.75,
It's waiting money- to pay $15 for Suits soid by us for $10.
It's wasting money?to pay $20 for Suits sold by us for $12.
Never mind if they do say it hurts tne business to sell at lower prices.
The wonder of the town. It's not understood how we do it. It's done.
As wonderful prices in Hoys' Clothes. You needn't pay more than $5 for Biggest
and $;> for smallest Hoy's Suit.
You'll hardly believe it can be. A Man's All-Wool Suit, $5 and $6.75.
The proof?see it. Perhaps the very suit you have seen some one else wearing, and
took it for $io or $12 worth. Was bought here for $5 and $6.75.
