In the game with Tufts last Friday he gathered in six "pick-ups" and caught a difficult fly at a critical time. The Burlington correspondent of the Rutland Herald says, "Stiles at sec ond added to his reputation as one of the fastest second basemen on the col lege diamond by accepting seven difficult chances without an error. The Bannon boys who played ball on the'St. Johnsbury nine a hall dozen years ago are playing in the Eastern league this season. Tom Bannon plays left field for the Montreals and Jim Bannon olavs center field for the Springfields. The two brothers bat flies to each other almost every day, as both of them are heavy hitters. H. P. Patev, the Academy graduate who is one of the pitchers in the Dart-' mouth team, puzzles all the visiting teams with his left-hand curves. In the Rame with Tufls only two hits were made off Irom his pitching and in the eame with Brown on Monday, when Dartmouth won by the score of six to five, the press dispatch says, "Patey, the Dartmouth pitcher, main tained his excellent record, puzzling the heavy bitters of the Brown team when runs were most needed." Figures from the Boston & Maine. The statement ol the Boston & Maine railroad for the quarter ending March 31, sent out Saturday by Pres. Tuttle, shows a deficit of $119,140 as compared with a surplus of $40,811 for the corre sponding period last year. Both the gross transportation and mis cellaneous earnings increased, the former $60,311 and the latter $14,139, but an increase in operating expenses amount ing to $217,915 and an increase in interest, taxes, etc., of $16,430 wiped out all this and brought about a decrease in net of $143,522 and the resultant deficit above stated. The large increase in operating ex penses for the quarter is partly account ed for by the extensive improvements that the management has been making throughout the system, and both stock holders and patrons may have the satis faction of knowing that the Boston & Maine road was never in such a fine physical condition as it is at the present moment. The St. Johnsbury Gun Club. At the annual meeting of the St. Johns bury Gun Club last week these officers were elected : President, J. W. Titcomb. Vice-Pres., Edward F. Griswold. Sec. and Treas.. F. C. Beck. Club Caotain. H. A. Belknan. Ex. Com.. Dr. E. H. Ross, Dr. H. G. Bullard, Thomas Hunter. The Question of establishing a rifle range was favorably discussed and high hill back of the proposed location for the targets makes it absolutely safe or 100 or 200 yard ranges. The members of the club have erected a building on their grounds to be used for the storage of guns, ammunition and the other essentials for the successful carry ing out of this most exhilarating sport. The club was most tortunate in securing its present location which is on the flat iust west of the lohn Belknap shop on tne fair uronna roaa. it is easy oi ac cess, level and protected from strong winds, the requisites most essential for accurate shooting. 1 he club was lormed a year aco and has steadily increased in membership. Many new applications have been received tins season and tne outlook for the club is most promising. Clay pigeon shooting is not generally understood. These pigeons aretheshape ol a saucer and are thrown from a trap with surprising rapidity. After witness ing a lew snots it is plain wnerein lies the fascination. The club shoots every Saturday afternoon from 4 to 6. All shooting is done under strict rules and no loaded arras are allowed except Dy individual actually shooting. Business men will find no better way to free their minds of bills due. Don't think vou cannot shoot until you try The public are cordially invited to attend the shoots and will find scats on the club house piazza. On the Diamond. The Victors went to Lyndonville on Saturday and defeated the nine there by n score of 30 to 18. The St. Johnsbury boys found themselves playing against a fairly able-bodied team, but took a good lend promptly and kept it up. This is the fourth straight game that the Victors have won this season ; they have lost none. Ten to seven tells the story of the game here last Saturday between the Academys and the Dartmouth Reserves. It was a pretty contest and a fairly large number of people saw it. The home team playt d against considerable odds, bnt held up finely and kept their opponents down to a reasonable degree. Jenness pitched good ball and he was well supported by Newell and the rest of the boys. The Academys will play their first game in the Vermont Intcrscholnstic League on thecnmpushi'reon Saturday afternoon with the St. Albans high school nine, and a contest lull of interest may be looked for. The game will be called at 1.30 to allow the St. Albans players to leave on the 3.20 train. The Academys will pley the second game in this series with the Montpclier Seminary nine on Monday afternoon, beginning at 3.30. Turn out and give the boys "lull houses" and good support at each game. this column in -reading matter type at the rate of two cents a word for the first inser tion and one cent a word for subsequent in sertions.
