Crown Downs Isanti.
Last Sunday the reorganized base
ball team of Crown journeyed over to
Isanti and proceeded to trim the fast
team of that place to the tune of 10 to
3. From a spectator's standpoint it
was a game that could be enjoyed.
No foul tactics were resorted to and
Stoneberg, the Cambridge erstwhile
twirler, officiated as umpire in a man
ner that would make Two-Bits Bier
halter look like two-bits half spent.
McKenney and J. Angstman were at
the points for Crown until the seventh
inning, when McKenney was injured
in running bases and Groth of Cam
bridge mounted the mound for Crown.
McKenney, with errorless support,
held the Isanti team to 2 runs in 6
innings and one run was scored on
Shrofer, an amateur twirler from
Minneapolis, was on the mound for
Isanti with Johnson at the receiving
end. Shrofer proved easy pickings
for the Crown boys and gladly retired
in favor of Baker in the eighth in
ning. The feature of the game was a
catch by Forrest Angstman in center
field. With two men on bases Ander
son, Isanti's heavy slugger, con
nected with one of Groth's benders
and for several seconds it looked like
a homer for him. Up and on the
horsehide sailed with Angstman fairly
flying in the same direction. As the
rooters were cheering the batter the
little fielder made a flying leap and
landed the ball in his gloms, retiring
the side. Crown will play Cambridge
next Sunday at Cambridge. A return
game with Long Siding would like to
be arranged. Crown's lineup is as
follows: J. Angstman, c. McKinney
and Beck, p. W. Hass, lb.: B. Hass,
2b. L. Angstman, ss. Walker, 3b.

Lone Siding: Wins Again
The Long Siding and Foreston ball
teams came together on the former's
grounds last Sunday and for the
fourth time this season the Foreston
team was forced down to defeat at the
hands of the Long Siding ball
tossers. Thefinalscore was 6 to 4
and at no time during the game was
Long Siding in real dangertaking
the lead at the start they held it to
the end. Leander was on the firing
line for the winners and he was very
effective during the entire game.
Kennedy, for the losers, also pitched
good ball.
Foreston started a batting rally in
the ninth inning which netted them
two runs. Lockwood, with one man
on second, leaned on one of Leander's
fast ones for a home run. The next
man up, however, whiffed the atmo
sphere three times7
and the game was
During the game several errors
were made by both teams, but these
were offset by some sensational field
ing stunts pulled off at opportune
times. Long Siding, however, had it
on their opponent* in both fielding
and batting and merited their victory.

Vincent Attacks School Law.
The state law providing that high
schools must have an enrollment of
200 to be able to qualify for state aid
or b& in the accredited list of Mgh
schools of the state, is condemned by
Dr. George E. Vincent, president of the
state university. Before a meeting of
the state high school board in St.
Paul he declared it was a false
standard of efficiency, as a pupil
coming from a small, well-equipped
high school may be better fitted than
one from a larger school. It is
probable the next legislature wjll be
asked to change this law, leaving it
to the discretion of the high sshool
board to drop a school from the list,
and notfixa hapd and fast standard
of enrollment as a test of efficiency.
Additional power to classify high
schools according to efficiency prob
ably will be asked.
Bovine and Human Tuberculosis
Ten years' research and investiga
tion by a royal commission of
English experts bring out the con
clusion that* bovine and human tuber
culosis are essentially the same.
This startling announcement empha
sizes the importance of a clear under
standing of the great question, and
the necessity of wise procedure on the
part of state legislatures,, municipali
ties and producers. This last word
of the experts was made public a few
weeks ago in London through" the
final report of the royal commission
on tuberculosis.
The report aims to establish the
claim that man is notably susceptible
to consumption communicated from
the cow, and that deaths of young
children from consumption are to a
considerable extent due to drinking
cows' milk.Northwest Farmstead.
