VOL. 30 MARION, CRITTENDEN COUNTY, KENTUCKY SEPT. 3, 1908. NUMBER 14 .m
Champions of Eastern and Western
Kentucky Lock Horns In Two
Hotly Contested Games.
RUSSELLVILLE IS NOW CHAM.
PION AMETUEKS OF KENTUCKY
'Tin Iruu, 'tin pity , 'lis pity, 'tia
true." Thoy came, they saw, they
conquered and our only ooiiholation
it that they eonquurcd every where
clue that they oauio and saw. After
overwhelming Madlsonvillo and
while preparing to pull oH the mmo
Miint at Princeton, the Russolvillo
bacball nine, aniatuor champion of
Kentucky, if you ploiuo, piicd long
enough in our own hustling city to
inflict two painful wounds on the
l.calthly record held by our heroes.
They did it in a moo, easy, gentlemanly
way, loo, a if it was their
habit to porforni in the rolo of pride-humbler
every day in the week with-ml
undue hasto or extraordinary exertion,
without nialioo aforethought
r felonious intent, thoy gently and
juictly elided on the diamond and as
gently and uintlv glided off again
with two wore scalp adorning their
already overloaded belt.
Don't think from this, that thee
calp were obtained without effort
for ouch was far from being the cair.
Thoir vcalping knife had to be at its
sharpest, their scalping arm, its
Mrongcst arfd thoir scalping eye, its
keenest. Kor, to be exact, they had
to play the tallest Vind of baseball
every inning or ootn games to prevent
our ambitious warriors from
spoiling their spotless reputation.
Had they faltered a moment, had they
thoy hesitated an instant, the home
team, rcady'and watchful, would have
seized the opportunity and would
have made the writing of this column
a joyful oven I rnther than n dreary
drudgo. Hut, like good ball players
everywhere, thoy were always
and on their guard and sad to
wta'e, never gave our honvy.hitlbrs a

who pitched for the visitors w in
rare form, and was always complcto
master of the situation lie used
mainly a slow ball, and seemed to bo
Tory effective as he allowed only ono
hit, a slashing drive from Browns bat.
Gossage started in (o twirl for
Marion, but in tho third inning he
wrenched his arm, and was compolled
to leave the slab, itrown was
brought in from right field to fill the
vacant placo and with suro defeat
and possible disgrace staring him in
the face, took up the "white mans
burden." Hul, to tho surprise of
evoryoiu, ho pitched an excollcnt
game, and with only medium support
ho let down an acknowledged
team of sluggers with six hits and
fie runs, threo of which wore scored
by men already on bases when ho
went in tha box. We have almost
unbounded admiration for a man who
can pitch a great gamo of ball; but
wo admire even more s man who,
without a reputation as a twirleOias
tho grit and tho courage in his makeup
to go in the box at a critical time
and save a team with which he ji but
slightly cnnnctcd from a disgrsceful
defeat. Our kats nrc off to Hrown
who came to play first, was soot to
right field, and concluded hy filling
tin pitchers box as ably at a man
over filled it.
Ruseclville gave Harwood gilt-
edge support, the work of Ooosetrco
at third and Horn behind tho bat being
features. For Marion Grimes
and Taylor did the best work, Mitchell
playing his usual i;ood game at
llowevor. no team can score unless
thoy hit and lack of this caused our
defeat. Vet we feel only pleasure at
tho result, as our boys put up a good
strong fight agaiust heavy odds, and
proved our statement of last wook
that thoy are not and never were

Wo don't want to intimate that tho
Marion nine ii bettor or ovon aw good
as that ono whioh is baudod togcth
er under tho name of Hussolville, but
wo do want to say that luck rut a
big figure in tho second game with
that aggregation. Although tho
score board shows them to be victors
by a score of ! to ft, yet many went
away with gravo doubts as to whioh
team had played the hotter grade of
baseball, Marion made 1ft hits, tho
visitors 13. Marion had threo nmro
oxtra base hits than they did, yet
with all thoir slugging, tho camo
slipped away and few, realized just
how. Threo times, with tho bases
full, did our hoavy hitters lail us.
and almost every inning at loast one
man was left part of the way around
It was n battle of sluggers from
start to finish, and the most pleasant
feature of the entiro engagement was
tho banishini: of Simpson, star twir
ler from Madisonvillo, brought about
largely by Taylor who made four hits
out of five times up, and Guoss who
sont tho luather to tho f'enco in con-ter
field and trotted around tho bases
with case, Chapman who succeeded
him did better.
Hunyan, who pitched for tho home
team, was morcilcssly pounded all
around the field by tho heavy hitting
professionals. Had ho pitched anything
like his usual game Marion
would have won easily. Hut it was
just simply a good day for hitters-and
we are still loyal to "Pat." Had
he been given betttr support by the
out field wo might have had a different
tale t tell. . Still, we havo no
oomjilaint to make and really feel
prond of the showing made by the
team, It is, indeed, an honor, merrly
to convince a team like Russclvillc
that they have met focmon worthy of

Ho was avictim of appoplexy, having
suffered several strokes recently. He
was in his 80th year, having been
born Feby., 2nd, 182SI. Dr. Hodge
spent much of his young man here,
wliare flu is held in high esteem and
affectionate remembrance, by many
of our old citizens. Ho was born at

A Mothers Devotion.
Mrs. M. K, Croft, who usually goes

Her second daughter Miss Jcsso is
preparing to entor Sayro Institute,
aud her oldest daughter, Mrs. W. V.
Haynes is getting ready to go to
house keeping and both needed a
mothers help. Hence her decision to
not go to Petosky this season,

Is Now In Session-One ol the Most
Usetol Meetings Eever Held in
AN IDEAL INSTRUCTOR.
The Crittenden County Teachers'
Institute is now in session, and the
lookout is for one of the most useful
meeting that has been held in the
county for years.
Tho organization was effected by
the election os ihe following officers:
M. F. Pogue, President; K. E,
Phillips, Vice-President, Miss Florence
Harris, Secretary, and Miss
Willie Clement, Assistant Secretary.
Ourefficient Superintendent J. B.
Paris was fortunate in seouring tho
service ot a most able instructor, in
the person of Prof. Geo. W. Chapman,
Superintendent of Paris, Kentucky
The teachers are delighted with
Mr. Chapman, and evince a deep in
terest in the work. The instructor
is the life of the institute; that
coupled with tho corporation of tho
teachers insures a buiness like an
profitable session from a professional
standpoint, and as to the social sido
there was never more unaminity of
thought and purpose to make the
fraternal bonds stronger among tho
educators of the county.
Returning to the Instructor we
will say tha Prof. Chapman's
upon the minds and hearts of
this body of teachers will bo lasting,
and they will go back to the children
refreshed by drinking from
this great fountain of knowledge, and
professional inspiration. The gems
from Prof. Chapman's great storo of
professional treasurer which he has
so lavishly showered among them will
be garnered, every one, and used to
adorn the brow of tho rising generation.
Our impression ol Prof. Chapman
in his work here is, thoroughness,
up-to-date and systematic. The
work of a great teacher of tcachcrp,
whose service any superintendent of
Kentucky school would be fortunate
to secure forinstituto work-Prof.
Chapman's remarks in part
were as follows:
We are living in the greatest age
of the world's history. Human character
has been slowly forming
through the centuries, Every noble
thought, every good reason or kindly
deed is entered. It is builded into
the imperishable walls of human
character. He showed how Christ
had come to establish a new system
of things by directing attention to
the individual and by the recognition
of the poor.
The greatest work done by Christ
was done for the poor. Our work as
teachers is largely among the poor.
Let us cling to tho principles" advocated
by the Great Gallean He
showed that humanity is too materialistic.
Said he, "It took four
thousand years to prepare the, world
to rcceivethc doctrine of a spiritnol
kingdum, and now, after more than
six thousand years, man is still
clinging to the which
can be seen and felt, and measured,
and as it were, the
self indulgence of an honor with the
price of a soul and an eternity of
Ho thun spoko eloquently of the
work of the teachers, showing that
what he does is done not for time
only, but for eternity. Tho soul,
perhaps, lived before it came to this
earth. Wm. Wordsworth said, "Our
birth is but a sleep and aforgotting."
His explanation of this was beautiful
and enobling. Tho teachers
must be able to see (with the minds
eye) the child, to be taught oven
though it be housed in a houso of
flesh and blood, and never looso
sight of it in all his teachings or he
is just as liable to mar as to improve
The secret of success is the concentration
of energy and faoultics
upon ono thing. Ho illustrated
this by two rivers, each starting from
the high mountain and coming with
equal force to the level bottom, tho
one spreading out and making only z
poisonious march, while the other
kept on in a channel and became a
mighty river with many cities along
Teach people to concentrate tho
mind and they will succeed. It
must be done by patience, skill, tast,
gontleness, and sympathy,
Enthusiasm is indispausablc. No
teacher can succeed without it or fail
