Watts Mills 1; Nowbcrry 0.
In a very exciting game here Satur
day afternoon the fast Watts Mills
team blanked West Knd, of Newbcrry,
to the tune of 1 to 0 in an eleven in
ning contest. Verily, it was a great
game and the large crowd present went
away fully repaid and satisfied that
they had witnessed the fastest game of
the season. Newbcrry has been play
ing great ball this season, and has not
been scored against, however, their
spotless record was smashed to pieces
Saturday evening by the Watts slug
Simpson was in the box for Newberry
and the ex-collegian was in fine form
as usual, but was up against a tight
proposition and got ofT very light is the
opinion of the Watts supporters. His
team fielded in great shape behind him,'
but were a little shady on the paths.
Prince toed the slab for Watts and
hold the heiivy Newberrians safe at all
stages, 'he however, had to work out
of several tight places. In one inning
Newberry had three men on bases and
none out but a fast double from home
to third and a strike out retired the
I side wi chout damage. Sargee in center
I for WPttta played a fast game, as did
Ncsbitt at second, Irby at third, Franks
I at. .short and Swygert at first. Haw
kins cnujrht a very steady game, while
Hobo in right took bis chances easily.
Honham in left did not have a single
chance. Todd umpired in great .style
and there was not a kick registered at
his decisic ns.

If one feels dull and spiritless, in the
spring or early summer, they call it
"Spring Fever." Hut there is no fe
ver usually. It is the after effect of
our winter habits. The nerves arc
mostly at fault. Tired, worn-out nerves
leave us languid, lifeless, and without
spirit or ambition. A few doses of Dr.
i Snoop's Restorative will absolutely and
quickly change all of those depressing
symptoms. The Restorative, of course,
won't bring you back to full health in a
I day or t wo, hut it will do enough in 48
i hours to satisfy you that the remedy is
reaching thai ''tired snot." Druggists
I everywhere are advising its use as a
j splendid und prompt general toni.\ It
gives more vim and more spirit to the
spoonful than any other known nerve
or constitutional tonic. It sharpens a
failing appetite, aids digestion, frees
sluggish livers and kidneys, and brings
new life, strength and ambition. Test
il a few days and be convinced. Pal
