Clinton, May 29.?The Baptists of
this place are bending all their energies
l<? the gathering of funds for the erec
tion of ;i new church building. They
have given several entertainments re
cently two this week. The first of
these was a burlesque base hall game
between fourteen of the fattest men in
town and eleven of tho leanest. The
Fats wore green uniforms and the
Leans yellow. The umpire was one of
the graded school fans,Master Clarence
Galloway. The way this twelve-year
old midget rendered his decisions was

double play. No record was kept by
the official scorer of errors. Several
portly gentlemen pounded out what
would normally have been home runs,
butthobest any of them did was to
reach third. All five of their substitutes
were called into the game early. It
was a warm afternoon and a warm
game. The financial returns wore very
