PARIS INVESTORS IN SAVINGS
An "an indication that the gov
ernment savings plan has taken a
very strong hold on the people of
Paris, Postmaster Payne announced
j to-day that during the month of
j August the sale of Treasury Savings
Certificates amounted to $3,100.
More and more people are be
coming regular investors in Treas
ury Savings Certificates, due. to the
fact that they are absolutely safe,
pay a liberal rate of interest, have a
certain value at all times and con
be redeemed at any time prior to
maturity," Postamster Payne stated.
He also called attention to the fact
that these certifiates, if held five
j years, increases 25 per cent in value
over their cost 'price. They can be
secured through the local postoffice

and $25 at cost price of $800, $80

Paris and Cynthiana are now

result of Sunday's game at League

a score of 6 to 3, in a fast and
well-played game, which developed
some fine work on' the part of both
teams. After the second innfng

The game was featured by the fast
fielding of the entire team, and es
pecially the work of Heilman and
Wunker on ground balls, and Nip
pert's shoetsring catch. The batting
of Macke, Naples and Rummage, for
Paris, and Harding for Maysville,
also featured in the box score of the
game. Naples, of Paris, and Boskins,
of Maysville, were credited with a
home run each. Macke secured a
three-base hit. The attendance
was, as usual, about the best of any
at the Sunday games. The batter
ies were: For Paris Rummage

By defeating the Mt. Sterling
team in the game at League Park,
Thursday, by a score of 6 to 2, the
Mammoths again assumed the lead
in the Blue Grass League struggle.
Mueller pitched a masterful game
and held Mt. Sterling to six scatter
ed hits. The hits obtained off of
the delivery of Ferrell, Mt. Sterling
twirler, were not very numerous,
-.fbttt they came at a time when hits
meant runs. Paris secured' its six
runs in two innings, getting three
in the fourth and three in the sev
enth. Mt. Sterling scored twice in
the eighth. Catcher Klopp, of the
Mt. Sterling team, was forced out of
the game with a broken finger, and.
was relieved by rightfielder aLckey,
Harrison filling Lackey's position in
right. The entire Paris lineup play
ed good ball, Engle hitting out for
a home run, and Maples, Cicona and
Heilman featuring in the hitting
fest. Enthusiastic fans showered

Paris "fanB" could hardly believe
their ears Saturday afternoon when
Umpire Wells called it a "single"
when Winger, Paris third sacker,
hit out a home run, which struck
the limb of a tree outside the park
and bounced back over the fence.
But, as umpires are supposed to
know their business and to be all
powerful, the "fans" had to grin and
bear it. It all happened in the game
at League Park Saturday afternoon
between the Mammoths and the
Maysville teams. The usual large
crowd witnessed the game. In fact,
the Paris park draws big crowds at
every game. But to resume The
Paris team met defeat in a hard
fouhgt game by the score og 8 to 6.
Cotter, the latest Paris recruit, was
knocked out of the box in the fifth
inning, and was relieved by Wills,
who held the river boys to only one
run. Long hits were made by both
teams. Harding, Maysville first
baseman, got two triplets out of
three hits. One bumped against
an advertising sign in the far field,
for which Harding may send in his
measurements for a new suit of
clothes. Heilman, Cicona and Mar
gerum were credited with three-base
hits. The features of the game
were the fielding of Winger and
Heilman, for Paris, and Harding and
Bosken, for Maysville. Wells' ad

hit drew forth caustic comment
