The game put up bv the Koloas and Homesteads was undoubtedly the prettiest exhibition ever seen on Kauai. Xo runs to the fifth in ning, then one run for Koloa on a wild throw from 3rd to 1st and a sacrifice by Kul.i having brought Clement to 3rd and an error by the Homestead shortstop letting him score.

C. went first to the bat and earned out run in the first inning clue to a pretty steal of Sheldon's to 2nd, a sacrifice to 3rd and a steal home on a sharp pounder. Kleele then tied the score. Pandemonium broke loose in the first half of the third when the k. A. L. by Hitting every thing that Richardson could offer presented themselves with five earned runs. In the third, foutth and fifth innings Kleele scored one run, but the K. A. C. seemed to have forgotton all they knew about stick work. The first 6 balls pitched by Rose in the 7th were strikes, and two men fanned out, then he passed one to the first by hitting him, rattled by that gave 4 balls fo the next, but even then would have been all right except for the unexcused error of the third baseman dropping an easy fly which a baby should have held. Not content with this he made an error, the next man up on an easy grounder and behold the game was lost, as the Kleeles romped in and the K. A.
