In digging the basement for E. C. Cros
by's new garage on High street, has been
nursing a cut on his head this week, f.ie
result of nn altercation with one Joe
Comlskle, another Italian on the same
Job. Presto, Comlskle and a third Ital
ian became engrossed In a conversation
Friday afternoon and In a few moments
heated remarks were passed and Com
lskle and the thlrJ son of Italy clinched,
Presto went to the aid of his friend and
separated tho men. Comlskle, angered
at being deprived of a lltle Innocent
amusement, picked up a shovel and
brought It down in the direction of Pres
to's head. Presto dodged nnd the shovel
struck him a glancing blow on the back
of tho head and tore the skin. Comlskle
ran for the bridge over the Connecticut

Baseball Conference With Northampton.
Judge W. P.. Daley, Hnrold E. Whit
ney and M. J. Moran of this town; E. M.
Keyes of Keene, who Is president and
Becretnry of the Twin Stato league;
and T. E, O'Brien of the Bellows Falls
directorate, were In Northampton Satur
day to confer with a committee from
that city which Is considering plans for
a baseball team this season. Some of the
Northampton people would like to havo
tho city represented In the Connecticut
league, but as this would mean tho ur
chase of the franchise of somo other city
nt an expense of several thousand dol
lars, it is probable that Northampton
will bo content to come Into the Twin
State league as the fourth team, with
Brattleboro, Keene and Bellows Falls.
