DOUGLAS. April 14.?The Douglas
Civic Improvement Club will meet with
Mrs. Tascher at her home tomorrow
evening at eight o'clock. All those
interested in making Douglas a better |
and more beautiful place in which to
live, are earnestly desired to be pres
ent.
; The Northern is continuing Its
scheme of improvement by opening
, the building to the rear and arranging
an arcade entrance to the theatre from
the ferry dock. The hustling manager
of the Lyric, who is one of the pro-1
prietors of the Northern, has secured !
the services of Mr. Frodsham. a ca-1
pable trap drummer for the orchestras;
of the two places which adds much to i
the entertainment features. The gen
tleman recently arrived from the
States where he worked for the Sulli
| van-Considine circuit.
Mr. Liebricht this morning began
the erection of a cottage on his lots
back of the bear's nest.
A new corrugated iron roof is be
ing laid on the Episcopal church build
ing.
A
BASEBALL GROUNDS SHOW
STEADY IMPROVEMENT
TREADWELL, April 14.?The pipe
lines which conveyed mill tailings to
the ball grounds has been removed
and the field now presents a perfect
ly level plane upon which the dia
mond has been laid out. The clay and
fertilizer infield is being packed as
hard as a floor, upon which the boys
are already playing practice stunts.
When everything Is in readiness the
Treadwell grounds will be one of the
snappiest in the North and will be
used for part of the games to be
played on the Island this summer.
It is expected that a least half of
the season's games will be played on
the new grounds, though the grounds
at Douglas are to be used without dis
crimination. The Douglas field is a
good one and the grandstand has
been inclosed, making it more comfort
able for spectators. In the meantime
the public is waiting for the magic
words, "play ball."
