BASE BALL, YESTERDAY.
Calvort Shut Out-Waco Wins by a
Scoroof 0 to 0.
Tho bnso ball iramo at l'adgitt'rf
park yesterday resulted in a sooro of li
to 0 in favor of Waco. Calvert did
soino vory good playing and when they
walked along tho street the people
thought Waco wouldn't be in it.
Thoir men nro all of heavy build and
sotuo aro said to be cx-professionals.
Waco has purely got a good team and
they show thoir appreciation by giving
tbo boys good crosvds.
The rain tf Sonday morning kept a
cood many from coming out, but those
that missed it missed the best game
played here this seasou. Tho grounds
were in a fair condition and especially
Harry Lestcrjette, a former Waco
boy, pitched tho lattor part of the
game for L'lhert and did some verv
fair woik, altluugh several base hits
wore got oil' of him
Gridcr, the 13-year old pitcher of
the Waco team, has not a living
equal. He has held the champion
amateurs of the state down to three
base hits and he is an excellent batter.
Ho is certainly due great praise for
his pitching. Clay, the onteher ot the
Wacos, was often cheered for his good
work and when he cut Calvert en of
a run by not throwing the ball to first
arid put tho man running to first out
instead he made a amotion to
throw to fust but held the ball and
cut oil" the run.
There was some little kioking done
against tho first umpire and he was
ohang d. Mr. Walter Cox being put
in. His decUic ns were fair and not a
word of disapproval went up from
any one in the audienoo or from tho
The Calvert boys took their defeat
easy and said that they thought they
had a walk-over when they looked at
our boys. They returned home last
night on iho 8:40 Houston and Texafc
DIAMOND Dl ST.
Waco has tho besst pitcher in the
state, for a boy.
Ben Richards, alias "Frenchy,'' is a
first baseman of some repute. Ho has
refused an offer to join the Texas
league giving his reasons that he had
joined the Lano Scars and intonded to
stick to them ,
Stallard did excellent work on
second, and in that position has few
MoBride, Waco's third baseman,
fields well and throws like a ball shot
from a cannon.
"Little Dude" Rice is an excellent
fielder and took caro of every thing
that came into right field. Dudo is
a good hitter, an excellent base run
ner and, in fact, a good all rouna
Blancharr, tho Waco short stop,
did excellent work and his throwing to
first wa3 a feature of the game.
Left Fielder Lunsford covers as
much territory as as any fielder in the
state. Ho has a "good arm" and runs
Robinson captured the only ball
that reached center yesterday. He is
a good coaohor and base runner.
Thomas' two and three base hits
were missed yesterday.
Fort Worth will probably be here
this week for two games.
Culvert had a Dallas pitcher in the
Drink Coca-Cola at W. L. Tuckers.
ltronio ftr Decoration.
Material which adapts itself ad
mirably to tho decoration of furni
ture is bronzo. Wo havo scarcely
employed tho metal for this particu
lar purposo for many years, whereas
tho Europeans havo been very skill
ful in its uso for generations. Bronzo
has as yet failed to become widely
popular in America, one reason be
ing tho preference shown for articles
made in copper by tho various elec
troplating and galvano-plastic proc
esses, and by reason of tho prefer
enco shown for brass on account of
its more cheerful appearance
Bronzo has a mollow, sober huo,
and its durability and adaptability to
tho various purposes required and
tho choico effects that can bo pro
duced by tho application of bronzo
to all light wood, such as satin wood,
ash, pino and so on, should recom
mend its increased uso to our furni
turo makers. Wo havo no doubt
that this moral, with its grave, uu
obtrusivo tones will bo moro general
ly used than hitherto in this country.

BRANDED AS FALSE.
The Charge by Governor Hogg That
the Railroad Men Are bull
The following letter was received by
The News today:
"I no'ice) in Ilcgu's Gainesville
speech (see Gazette of 6th) where a
voice "It is said the railroads 'have
been compelled to reduce wages, gov
ernor; is that true?" he says, "No sir;
they have tried to bulldoze their em
ployes by ranking them organize
against me." I for one just want to
say its a "fahehood" and I am willu g
that you or any one else to ask any
agent or foreman and they wi'l tell
you the same thing Mr Hogg is
trying to create a wrong impressior.
If Hogg or any of his followers can
find one line of polincs either to cr
from the general office to this office,
I will take off my hat and eat the doc
ument and then vote for Hogg at the
primary and also in November, wheth
er he gets tho nomination or not.
It is a known fact that every fore
man on tho Texas Central have been
reduced 5 per month and fully one
half the agents have been out Irom
$10 to $25 per month. Hogg had
better be building up the fence in his
record, and quit classing elective corn
commission men in with negroes (See
same speech.) I think it would be a
good policy to call on the railroad
fraternity for an acknowledgment or
denial bf this assertion.
Odd Use of Sea Sunlit
"Snails that livoin tho sea aro use
ful for many moro important pur
poses than most peoplo imagine,"
said a naturalist to tho writer.
"Some of them, known as 'winkles,'
aro used to a great extent for food
in England, being sold at street cor
ners in tho cities, whero thoy aro es
teemed a great luxury by tho poor.
On tho North Atlantic coast wo havo
certain species of whoJks which
might bo mado to servo admirably
for eating, affording a cheap and
nutritious diot. Even in tho waters
of tho far Arctic theso gasteropods
nro found in great numbers, whero
thoy sometimes supply a means of
subsistence to castaway whalers and
other voyagers who would othorwiso
perish of starvation.
On tho other hand, somo univalves
do a great deal of damago by de
stroying oystera in beds, drilling
through tho shells with their filoliko
tongues and sucking out tho occu
pants of tho houses into which thoy
havo thus forced an entrance Tho
conch, instead of drilling like- tho
whelks, seizes tho unfortunate bi
valvo with its powerful "foot" and
crushes it, by tho sheer exertion of
muscular power, as 0110 would
smash-an English walnut in tho list
