Bourbonites at Home Wednes
Today will conclude the series with
the Maysville club and the Bourbon
ites will return to Paris Wednesday
for a game with the winers of the
championship of the first half of the
series. Ab today is Gejrge's turn in
the box it is likely he will be shoved
in against the Rivermen and tomorrow
"Cyclone" Jack Scheneberg will be
on the firing line against the Hustlers.
Nothing would please the fans more
than for the locals to give the Hust
lers a good sound drubbing to the
many defeats they have received at
their hands, and it is believed Schene
berg, if in good form, can deliver the
goods and put it over the Winchesters
to a queen's taste.
The excellent game the locals "put
up against the Rivermen yesterday,
scoring a shutout which put Paris in
the upper berth, onengame ahead of
the Colts, jooks like they have their
stride and will remain in that position.
Should George hurl in the same fash
ion against the Rivermen as he did
against the Pioneers in his last game,
victoiy is assured. The fans should
celebrate the home roming of the lo
cals tomorrow by turning out in great
