GROWTH OF OUR CITY.
Pennsylvania Capital Largely In Evidence
There, are few of the citizens that
realize the amount of capital expended
by the producers and capitalists of
Pennsylvania, in this immediate neigh
borhood. Thousands of dollars in ren
tals are being paid out to the farmers
throughout the districts, not to speak
of the vast amount of money being ex
pended in the actual pursuit of drilling
But, paramount to the citizens of
Marietta is the capital being invested
in her city.
The Leidecker Tool Company, head
ed by good, conservative business men,
have brought that industrious plant to
a standing second to none in the en
tire oil country. Their genial and ac
commodating manager and president,
Jj. D. Shrlock, backed by that cool and
level headed capitalist, J. J. Leidecker,
would be an assurance of success in
any business. They have in connec
tion with the Marietta plant a shop in
the Ogden field, where they are pre
wired to do such work as may be de
manded in that field. We feel that
much credit is due this energetic com
pany for the energy they have display
ed in this particular and very impor
Second, but not least, is the mam
moth boiler and iron works now rapid
ly nearing completion. An industry
s of which any city or community may
well be proud. These large shops, con
taining, as they will when completed,
all the modern improved machinery
known to this industry, will be able to
compete with any establishment of the
kind in the United States. The Hughes
Bros., whose names alone are sufficient
guarantee of success, are at the head
of this firm. Their mechanical skill
in this particular branch of business is
well known throughout the entire oil
country, as the citizens of Buffalo, N.
Y., Franklin and Uutler, Pa , are will
ing to attest. They have associated
with them, by virtue of their industry
and skill, some of the best business
men of Western Pennsylvania. That
thoir enterprise will be a success is a
-foregone conclusion. Mc.

The game at the Athletic Grounds
Wednesday afternoon was the first
played by the new Marietta team and
was well attended. Errors were plen
tiful and the umpiring a little off color
on balls and strikes, though the game
as a wnole was a good one and the
questionable decisions of Umpire Mira
ban favored one team as much as an
other. Marietta opened at the bat and
Seamon started things by a loft field
ily which was muffed by Scott. The
inning netted Marietta three runs, the
Nelsonville boys failing to score. In
the second inning Marietta added six
runs and Nelsonville brought
one man over the plate. From that
point the game improved in quality,
and at the end of the ninth inning the
score stood 15 to 4 in favor of the local
team. Following is the score by in
nings: Innings 12 8 4 5 6 7 8 0
Marietta 3 0 0 0 2 12 1 015
Nelsonyillo 0 1001020 04
The pitching of Reynolds was good
and he piled up 14 strike outs'to his
credit, Williams, of Nelsonville, haying
7. Carr and Ransom, the new players,
have the marks of good men. The
game this afternoon promises .to be a
much closer contest
