Duluth Won From Crookston by
a Score of 3 to 2An
In the best game of ball ever
played in Bemidji, Duluth won
from Crookston yesterday by a
score of 3 "to 2. It was a fast ex
hibition and was witnessed by a
crowd of nearly 2,000 people.
The grounds were in fine con
dition, and were as good as any
team could ask, aside from the
fact that the outfied had not been
cleared out as far as is usually in
city grounds. This did not in
terfere with the playing, how
ever, and few balls got hit across
the leveled outfield. None of
them found the timber. Crooks
ton got her two scores on an
error on the part of Duluth in
the seventh inning. Lyons, on
second base, made a wild throw
to home plate letting in two runs.
The players were all in good
form and did excellent work.
Duluth squeezed in four errors,
however, and Crookston fell only
one short of that number. Gehr
Tng, Duluth's pitcher, had a good
delivery, and there.were no criti
cisms offered on the work of
Freeman, the man who twirled
the ball for Crooksion.
Gerard caught for Duluth.
This was his third game of the
season, and he was merely picked
up as a sort of scr ub to take the
place of Cline, the regular man,
who had split his hand in making
a catch the day before. The new
catcher by his brilliant work at
the .bat surprised not only the
spectators but his brother play
ers as well. He made the best
batting record of anyone in the
and got to third on one of
his big hits. He got to first
every time he stepped up to bat.
His work behind the bat was
good, but showed a lack of prac

NOTES ON THE GAME.
In spite of the great size of the
crowd it was a very orderly one.
There were no disturbances of
any kind. The rooting was not
so loud as it would have been if a
home team had been in the con
test, but was of a very nealthy
Betting was not heavy, but a
number of small bets were
placed. Crookston seemed to be
the favorite with those sportively
inclined, but A the backers of Du
luth won oul^
The diamond was rather dusty
but was level as a floor. The
ballplayers expressed themselves
as being well pleased with it.
They were delighted at the size
of the crowd.
The grand stand is a large" one,
but was not big enough to accomo
date all who tried to secure seats.
It is as big as is usual in such
cases, however, and will answer
all ordinary purposes. The
bleachers were not up. "When
they are constructed they will
afford seating space to hundreds
and will relieve the grand stand.

Attorney L. H. Bailey has
offered a new and novel sugges
tion which, if acted upon, will
make the Bemidji band self sup

organization the exclusive privil

the new ball grounds, at the ball
games, fairs, or anything else
along these lines which may be
held there, in exchange for their
servk-cs. whenever needed..
I is thought that this project
if rightly managed would afford
ample compensation to the boys
for their work. It would do

Bliler Engage in Excit
R. W. Reed and Harry Bliler
were mixed up in a bear killing
yesterday. In company with
Ed Kerr, a settler living a few
miles west of town, they tracked
a two-year-old black bear into a
swamp and killed him with a
club. Kerr had a gun along, a
combination rifle and shotgun,
but it was not used for fear the
hide would be spoiled.
Some'tiimrago Mr. Kerr, told
Mr. Bliler "and Mr. Keed that
of his place. He said that when
he got it located he would let
them know. Yesterday morning
they received a message from
him stating that lie knew where
to find bruin, and the loeal hunt
ers immediately set about mak
ing preparations for the hunt.
Mr. Heed took his camera along
and they caught the 3:20 train
They were met at Solway by
Mr. KerV, and he conducted them
into the woods between Wilton
and Solway, a considerable
distance from the track and
about ten miles from Bemidji.
The track of the bear was found
on the edge of a swamp. A half
mile of walking along his trail in
the damp ground brought them
to the animal.
The bear started to run but
was soon overtaken and sur
rounded. Several-good negatives
were made of him by the pho
tographer, and then Mr. Kerr
approached bruin and dispatched
him with a few well directed
blows of a stout club, finishing
the work by running his kuil'o in
the bear's shoulder. Excitement
for a brief period was intense,
and all concerned indulged in
rapid actions to escape the
animal's claws. It was dark be
fore the party got out of the
woods. The bear's head is to be
mounted. The hide at this sea
