BALL AND HO AI GALORE.
Game Between Princeton and Cambridge Last Sunday a Rag Chewing Affair. The game of ball Sunday afternoon between the Cambridge-Spencer Brook merger and the Princeton-Milaca con solidation was without question the noisiest, hottest rag-chewing contest and most exciting game of ball played anywhere for a long time. It could hardly be called a game of ball, as there was more scrapping and kicking than there was playing and there was no excuse for it, though it must be ad mitted that under the circumstances it could not be avoided. The Cambridge team got an early start from home for the Brook where they played the Brook team in the forenoon and lost the game by a score of three to fh o, the Brook boj scoring four in the first inning on account of errors made by the Cambridge team. When the Cambridge team left the Brook they added Jay Smith of the Brook team to the list and pla\ ed him at second. The Princeton nine Avas re enforced by McClure, Peterson and Faucht of Milaca and Mergel of Blue Hill. Sambo Shaw who recently se cured a position at Babb's Inerv in Cambridge ^as with the nine from that place and was placed in the akward position of ha-ung to guy some of his old base ball comrades. But base ball bluffing is all from the tongue and not from the heart. There were two incidents that marred the game. One of these was the naming of Editor Kienit/ of the Cam bridge Independent as umpire, and the other was the injury Faucht received in the second inning by being hit in the head b} a ball while at the bat. He was unable to play the remainder of the game and O'Brien of Milaca was substituted. When Mr. Kienitz took his position back of the box the trouble began. "Is that the fellow who um pired at Green Lake?" and -'Is that the fellow who roasted the band boys?'' were the frequent inquiries, and some of the young lads soon discovered that the umpire was the party who roasted the band last winter a ery dark brown and then poured black gravy over the roast. The game had no sooner started than Kienitz became the target for all kinds of guying and roasts, and in the first inning when he shut off Princeton from making a score with best of pros pects for one or two more by calling a ball hit b\ Peterson a foul, there was blood in the ej of mam. Princeton had two men on bases and Marshall was at third, so that when Peterson struck the ball Marshall came in safely, and after the decision of the umpire was announced Peterson went to bat again and fanned out. Of course this made things look different. Cam bridge went to bat hrst and Jay Smith was out at first, and then Sm der and Babb each turn monkeyed with the ball and ne\ ei got aw a\ from the plate. When Cambudge came to bat in the second inning and staited oft in good shape there was a bad taste in the mouth oi the Princeton crow d, a^ thej ieltver sore OA ei the ruhne of the umpire. Shaw made a good hit and then Carl Cra\ens hit a two bagger, Smith follow ed with a health} hit ana Sambo scored The next man fanned out, but the next man to bat was safe on first, and thus the ball began to roll, and Cambridge got three scores in this, inning. Shaw, Carl Craxens and Smith scoring. The decisions of Kienit/ did not satisf\ the Princeton bo\s and their friends and the game progressed only to be trequenth inter rupted by nois\ and er\ demonstra rooters who protested at manj of the decisions. Young O'Brien went to pieces in the fourth inning over one of the decisions and sat down like a balkj horse. The diamond became the seat of wai. The air was rent with howls and cheers, groans and gibes and the marshal was obliged to enter the arena of anger and turn loose the dove of peace which immediately became ter ror stricken and left. Order was finally restored but not until Mr. Kienitz retired from the field amid wild cheers and shouts. Sidney Cravens took the umpire's position and peace and quiet reigned, Cv&\ ens' de cisions going without protest. In the fourth inning Cra\ens and Peterson changed positions for the balance of the game, Peterson catching and Cra\ ens played at second. Princeton never scored until the third inning when Claggett got around. In the fifth Marshall scored, and in the seventh McClure and Marshall both scored. Cambridge failed in one, tw o, three order in the third, Lryne made one the fourth, and Carl Cra\ ens scored in the fifth, after which there were no further scores. The batting order of the teams was as fJ lows- t'i Hon MiOiun. 3b Ma'^ '11, If Clat -t, lb Peters ,n Crci' "s MVJI ordinal, if Jamkula, ss.

Wow N JW! Wow! A regular wild west show. Snyder, the G. N. agent at Grandy. caught a sky-scraping foul in a pretty manner. The boys plajed ball some of the time. Jake Lewis was as mum as a clam. What's the matter Jake? The rules didn't count. Everybody seemed to have rules of his own. Dr. Whiting and Ike Walker were among the rooters from the Brook. Another howling game like this and a lot of justifiable cranks will protest vigorously. It was supper time when the game ended much to the relief of all, both players and spectators. O'Brien was not a bad pitcher, but like some others at the game he needed a little chopped ice at times. Carl Cravens made a good two-bag ger, and had he not tripped at first would have made third without any trouble. Sheriff Claggett did a little prom enading in front of the home plate while at bat and added one of the little rings to the score. Among those down from Milaca were Dr. N. M. Cook, E. I. Davis, E. E. Price, James Heath, A. W. Peterson, E. O'Brien, J. McClure and E. Faucht. One of the pretty plays was a double from pitcher to McClure at third who electrocuted a Cambridge runner and then sent the ball to Claggett who got his mitts all over the sphere before the Isanti count} sprinter could connect. Orrin Cravens struck the ball a dull, sickening thud and it died right at his feet. He remained at the plate as loth to go as was the lad in history to leave the burning deck. The ball was passed to first where it waited for Cravens, who in the meantime pulled down his stocking and went out to Umpire Cravens and showed a black and blue spot. "You got it at Spencer Brook!" Birth mark!" "Horse kicked him," and-alotof other expressions greeted him while he stood pleading with his brother. Sid never smiled nor did he show any signs of pity. Among those over from Cambridge to attend the ball game were the fol lowing: Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Snyder, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Kling, Postmaster Wm. Smith, Judge Torrell, County Auditor T. C. Blomgren, Carl J. Smith, J. Norine, O. C. Linn, Editor Kienitz, Chas. Patsold, Sam Shaw, Hei^bert Bunker, Carl Ciw ens, Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Cravens and family, P. Norin, Geo. Starkweather, Theo. Magnus, Ira Kerr. Dan Hallin, Chas. Larson, A. Engberg, Sheriff Gillespie, J. A. Stone berg and Jake Lewis. The.\ all left for home immediately after supper at the Commercial hotel. The Greenbush-Glendorado Road. One of the best roads in the county is the one leading west from the lllage of Princeton, though Princeton and Greenbush townships to the Benton counn line and beyond. The mone\ expended on that road was well in ested, as the business men of Prince ton and the farmers who haul their produce o\ er it well know. But the coating of clav and gravel will not last fore\ er. AlreacU in many places holes haA been worn in the road bed and if not attended to at once the road will soon deteriorate into its former miser able condition. A stitch in time saves nine. The road in question should be repaired at once. If twentj per cent of the farmers who are obliged to tra\ el the road would each donate one days' ork, and if the business men of Princeton would lend a helping hand that sti'etch of ten or tweh miles of road would speedily be placed in ex cellent condition. Let us ha\ at least one piece of road that is fit to tra\ el at all seasons of the ear. Tw eh months hence it will cost one hundred per cent more to make the needed repairs to the road in question than it would at the present time. To start the ball rolling the UNION will contribute $25.00 in cash. The farmers along the road in question should take the initiatory steps. The} are the parties most directly in terested. Of course if the town boards of Greenbush and Princeton will take the matter in hand so much the better. The UNION'S contribution will be paid just as cheerfully to the town authori ties. Action should be had as soon as possible. Wa-be-Gon Will Not be Gone. One of the Mille Lacs band of Indi ans, named Wa-be-Gon, but whose looks would indicate that the cognomen Woe-be-gone would be move appropri ate, was in the city this week on his return from a visit to the White Earth reservation, where he had been to learn something about the proposed fu ture home of his tribe. He did not seem to be in a very happy frame of mind about the remo\al, saying the present agent at the reservation was "no good," and did not understand the nature of the Indian. He said that the Indians regard the agent with contempt and that on a recent occasion, two of his dusky subjects slapped his face dur ing an intern iew in the office at the agency. Wa-be-gon will not leave Mille Lacs until obliged to.Brainerd Arena. Regan's bread, rolls and doughnuts, fresh e\ ery day at LUDDEN'S STORE. THE PRINCETON UNIOK: THURSDAY, JULY 16, 1903. I WAS CIRCUS DAY. Campbell Bros.' CIreus Draws a Bi Crowd to Princeton. Circus day in Princeton, with Camp bell Bros.' show as the attraction was the biggest thing on the calendar for a long, long while, and Princeton was crowded with people. The morning train brought down a big crowd while farmers poured into town from all ways and in all ways and there were fully 6,000 people in town in the afternoon. The day opened with a hard storm but it cleared up by noon, and by this time Princeton was on tip-toe attention, and ready to see the parade, which came along about 1 o'clock, with band wagon, circus riders, the elephants and camels, and animal wagons, at which the chil dren gazed with wonderment and vis ions of monsters of the sea and forest. Then there was the calliope with its old familiar strains that is the same now and forevermore, to the kids and grown folks without number. The clowns came along in their little carts and comical moods, and then there was a dash for the show, which pitched its tents right south of the Commercial hotel in Ross-Mere addition. The weather cleared off hot and made a typical circus day. The ticket wagon was the center of attraction for a surg ing mass of town and country folks for nearly two hours and with side shows with naming banners and howling bus iness agents, with the curious, and. ._.

A 4, Sunday and Weekday Announcements. pleasure seeking crowd taking in aside located just north of Robert Brers' res- attraction here and there, the scene was one that looked cosmopolitan. Campbell Bros.' show was well sup plied with very good attractions. There was nothing "fakey" about it in any respect. From the time the bugle sounded the grand march until the hippodrome the crowd was well enter tained. The big two-ring tent was packed and it was necessary to provide seats for over a thousand more people than the circus management had pro vided for, and when the show began there were fully 5,500 people present. The trapeze work and acrobatic per formances were ery good for a show making the smaller cities. The ring performances were not at all bad, and the general character of the perform ance was good throughout. It would not do a show of this character justice to criticise and make comparisons with attractions and performances of much larger shows, which never make the places the size of Princeton. Camp bell Bros.' circus aggregation gives the smaller cities an opportunity to see a circus. There is much to a circus e\ en the bestthat is commonplace and ancient, but people love to go to a cir cus, notwithstanding there is veiy lit tle new to see, and then there are the childrenand always afresh crop to go to a circus. But one performance was given, and that at 3 P. M., and it was followed bj the usual concert, which was not much more entertaining than the perform ance gi\ en b\ the roustabouts and tent men. who were bus\ taking down the seats and a part of the tent equipment while the concert went merrih on. But this is all part of a show. The show got loaded out about 8 o'clock for Alexandria. Campbell Bros, were more than pleased with the pat ranage Princeton and \icinm ga\e them, and the ticket sales amounted to $4,300, lacking just $14 of reaching the sales at Bemidji on the Fourth where two performances were gi\en. The show could ha-\e been repeated in Princeton in the evening to 2.000 peo ple at least. There were many who came in from the country late in the afternoon and intended to attend the e\ ening performance. METHODIST. There will be no services next Sun day. Sunday school at the usual hour.
