the St. Joe meeting. He savs all the

that the game would lie more prolita
me nenceioriii was unanimous; so
much so that each club placed in the
hands of President Hickev a check for

while she would consent to bein
dropped, she would not have thought
oi suen a thing hut lor the course
Burlington had taken. The schedule
was revised ami the games in each
series increased to four. This will to
some extent reduce railroad cxpeuses,
J lie action taken by the association
managers in the face of such adverse
circumstances is indeed commendable
and will no doubt have the effect o
reviving the interest in the national
game which has lagged to a discoui
aging degree m consequence of the
war and the bad spell of weather
which struck this part of the country
at the liegiiming of the season. Base
ball is an amusement which any iu-to-
date town cannot get alonir very well
without. But it has lieen demon
strated that it cannot exist without
support. The association is com
posed of teams that are the equal of
any in the minor leagues. Therefore
there is no reason why the games
should not lie patronize'd. It is be
lieved they will lie and more gener
ously than in the past.
Manager Sage has his eye on sev
eral new players with a view to
strengthening his team. The line up
will, it is said, be something like this
