The Roanoke Team Put Up a Good
Game, But Lost.
Leach and Williams Both Do Good
Work. The Fielding ot Both
Teams Was Fairly Good. Hall
Fuller, Thurslon, Viox and
Lewis Carry Off the Honors.
After being deserted for kodjo little
time League Park put on its ueotis

There was a fair .audience present, ii
Vas ii pretty efternooO, and all nature
aecuied to shed its lustrous ln-ouia over
tho diamond end tho people thereon, us
well as to impart au nu'isuallly good in?
fluence over those occupying seats in
tho grand stand, extending even to tlio
Lleaohers. There wore "rooters" there,
?if course thero was, where can you
nod a team that ha.; not that very un
?lortatitaiijtiiiuet to bolp it olou;.;, either
t.i victory or defoatV
But they v,ere coufcidorato in their
t< marks, and no ill fecliug or unkind
remarks prevailed. This wee probably
duo to tho fact, however, that uotinug
*.vaa duDe to "rilo" them, for tho visi
lore played clean bull and made no
kick, suve iu oue exception, which
amounted to notlnug, ua .Mr. .Mitchell
??*ry promptly callod tbem down, uurl
the game went merrily uluug, a short
?tury nf which follows,
Cavelle. the first man that fuccd
I'ltober Williams, ot thn KoauukoH,

witn a "corking" two-base hit. Th?rs
tou popped up a tly to Viox, Out, tiaid
Mttobell. Cavelle reached third on a
jHisgcd ball and orossed the plate on
i\ uox'a single. Childs wet- thrown out
At titst, aud Maugau put a nice oue
into Sherer'l hands aud tho sido waa
retired.
For the Koanokes, Sherer and Lowis
were caught out on Hy's, btabl walked

??.Snapper" Fuller, and Little was out
at Fecund. They went out in one, two,
three order tor the next three tunings.
In Pot temouih's second two moro ruus
acre scored, Hall being prostiiilod with
a i.aar, because Mr, \\ illlanis could not
lucato tho uocic plate. Leach, tho "old
reliable," liuod bor out over second fur
one hag, but "Jakey" Shorer lot it
I'liss biro, and the "Lone I''iahermau"
came trottiug in home, for "thero is
noplace like home," especially in a
game of ball; Leach waut to third on
the error, and scored uu u high ily to
the ont?etd. Auother run was added
in the tbird, ou a hit by "Bobby"

The home team were fortunate

two tit's to centre held ami a paused

eevonth on bits by Gavulle and 1'bure

total number ot ruus.six. Tito visitors

through a hanu ou balls, Kuoi's error
and William's bit, they tallied

I Tho Boston Traveller says thai a few
weeks ago a Maine young man bought a
pair of socks containing a note saying
tho writer was on employee of the Ken
oshu (Wis.) knitting works aud wanted
a good husband. She gave her name and
requested the buyer, if ru unmarried
man, to write with a view to ruutri
moay.
The young man who found the note
considered tho matter in ull its phases
and decided to write to the girl. He
did. Awaiting the answer with consid?
erable finxiety, ho was at last rewarded
j with a cnit letter stating that the girl
was now the mother of two children
and had been married four years, aud
the b iter he bad answered had been
j written ever so long ugo.
It was a "sock dollsgur," und the
young man hunted for a solution. Ho
found it. The merchant of whom he
bought tho socks doesn't udvertiso.
