CHICKASHA INDIANS TO PLAY ON SEVENTEENTH
Madisonville camo on? victorious
Wednesday by a score of 4 to 2. It
was u closr, interesting game, oven
from Marion' standpoint an the loser.
Madisonville has nn extremely fast
team, hard hitters and a hard team to
beat. They got to Kraft early, scoring
two runs on the first on a couplo
of two baggers and n single in succession
after two were out. After this
inning Kraft held them lo four hit,
three inn!e and another double.
Mndisonville scored two in the fifth on
hit and two or three errors. Except
for these two innings Kraft held them
safe. Marion orcd twice in the third
when Morgan hit two men, Pentecost
doubled nnd fi. Given, on third, made
an error. A good chance to scoro was
lost in the eighth. Goldnamer open
ed with n hit, but was forced at second
by Guess. Lamb knocked u beautiful
two bagger to left Held fenco, but
Guess waited a moment too longto seo
if tha ball was caught, and a perfect
throw to thin! and then home caught
him at the plate.
MndUonvillc made seven hits, Mari-on
only four; otherwise Kraft out-pitched
Morgan, striking nut nine to
Morgan's two and having much better
control. Franks was hit by tho pitcher
three times out of four at the bat.

Corydon, with a record of ten
straight games won, including-one over
Morganfield, proved easy for Marion
in both tho Friday and Saturday games.
The first game, Kraft pitching for Marion,
was rather one-sided. Marion
mado twelve hits off Frazjer, and by
bunching these with some errors of
the Corydon players in the fifth and
seventh innings, scored nino runs.
Corydon made nine hits off Kraf, but
these were scattered, and Kraft was
good with men on boses', so that the
best Corydon could do was three runs.
Kraft made a nice two base hits, as
well as pitching a fine game. Tho
work of Guess at third was the feature;
he had. eight chances without air error,
and nia'dit three hits out of four tl'mtt

Tho second gamo was much better.
Byford pitched a remarkable game for
Marion, and Corydon never had a
chance. Only four hits, ono of them a
scratch, were made off his delivery; ho
gave only one base on balls, and hit no
one; in addition to this, he played a
perfect fielding game accepting eight
chances without an error. Talbott, tho
"peg-leg" pitcher for Corydon, also
pitched a nice game, giving eight hita,
two of which were baroly entitled to bo
called hits. Marion played a good fielding
game, making few errors, and none
of them costing anything. Outside of
the work of Byford, the feature was
Rochester's batting, he making three
hits and two runs out of four times up.

games this year. This hat proven a
serious blow to Marion, and we have no
doubt will be good news to a number
of our rivals Morganfield for instance.
Gossage has really not been in good

mado a fina record in Bpito of this, and
his absence from the gamo will be
missed by both players and fans. He
has made n remarkable record since- he
began to pitch for Marion, and his work
is known all over this part of the country.
However, Marion will have good
pitchers our rivals may rest assured
of that. Perhaps Morganfield will not
feel so well when wo tell them that
Coopender will pitch regularly for Marlon
the "rest of the season. Those who
snw' the Morganfield game that he
pitched need no assurance of his ability,
and we feel confident that he will
prove a winner over other teams as
well. He throws a very swift ball, has
fine curves, good control, and fields his
position perfectly. Besides that, he
appears to be a good batter.
Byford, by his work Saturday,
that ho can be depended upon to
pitch some of Marion'a games. His
performance was nothing Bhort of No.
1, and with coaching nnd experience
against heavy-hitting teams, he ought
to prove n winner. He certainly showed
that hn has everything necessary for
tho making of a first class pitcher.
Altogether, while the illness of Gossage
is a blow to Marion, some of the
teams who arc basing their expectation
of winning over Marion on that
fact are going to be disappointed.
The games so far scheduled are as
follows: all at Marion.
July 8th and 9th. Princeton July 12,
Harrisburg, III.; July 17th, Chickasha
Indians, (afternoon and night; July 23,
Waverly; July 30th and 31st, Morgan-field;
also one gante this month with
Rockport, Ind., date not fixed.
Tho next games, those with Princeton,
will be worth seeing. Princeton
has always been a hard proposition for
Marion, and has a good team this year,
as usual . Marion expects to win both
games, but is going to have to play
gilt-edge ball to do it. Cooperider will
pitch one of these gamea, and probably
Kraft the other.
The games with the Chickasha
will furnish a novelty, in that
ono of themVill bo played at night, on
a diamond lighted as brightly as day

Despite the hot weather and the fact
that the farmers were very busy,
three good meetings were held in this

Georgetown College,, was the speaker
assigned to Caldwell and Crittenden
counties. Dr. Yeager arrivee in Marion
on the 8 o'clock train Wednesday
morning, nnd left for Tolu at once,
accompanied by Rev. Martin E. Miller.
The roads were so heavy and the weather
so warm that thev did not retch
Tolu until neariy noon. Dr. Yeager
ppoko at 1: 39 to a fine fudience composed
of fifty or sixty of the best people
of that section. Rev. Miller also
spoke, as did E. F. Smith and others.
Great interest was manifested in tho
new school law and in better educational
facilities in general. Dr. Yeager
was obliged to cancel the date for
Hebron in the afternoon on account of
the condition of the roads.
