Lead Belt baseball fans got their money's worth last Sunday at the Fed eral park when Federal and ironton gave them 19 innings of the best ex hibition of the national game ever witnessed in this district. The score when the game was called on account of approaching darkness was 1-1. Ironton scored their run in tne nrst inning and Federal theirs in me fourth. Tom Glore was in the box ror Federal and Dune Robertson for Iron- ton. Both picchers went the entire route and were delivering the pills at the end of the long game with the same accuracy and precision as in the first inning. Both received superb support from the men behind them. Ironton was especially strong in tne infield,grabbing every possible chance and it .was almost impossible to get anything by them. A dispute arose in the last inning Ironton had two men on bases, Mc- Cabe on first and Edgar on second. Robertson hit to Orton, the Federal short stop. Edgar scored, but in do- inc so collided with Orten between second and third. The run was not allowed on account of this interfer ence. Considerable time was lost In ant.klinir this dismite. The book Of rules was produced, which prove a that Ironton who was contending that the run be allowed, was wrong. They nnnnnted the decision eracefully, but as it was erowine late, it was decided to stop play and call the game a draw, Glore, for Federal, struck out 27 men and allowed 6 hits; Robertson, for Ironton, struck out 10 and allowed 9 hits. , It is estimated that between 1500 irid 2000 fans were present.

The Desloge "scrub" baseball team took the fast aggregation from Iron ton into camp last Sunday at the Na tional ball yard and gave them a neat coat of 3-0 whitewash. It was one of the best games seen here this season. The outstanding feature of the con test was the pitching of "Cat" Forshee for Desloge. He had everything on his bill of fare and was serving them over the platter in big league style. He had the Ironton sluggers reaching out after wide curves, and swinging wild at the fast balls. Wade Prather, at the receiving end of tbe battery, mixed them up in a tantalizing man ner. Good support was given In the field, with only two or three errors made on hard chances. Only five hits for Desloge were garnered off the deliveries of Wil liams and Tim McCabe pitching ror Ironton. McCabe, formerly oi Dig- lcague fame, plays the role of star first baseman for Ironton. He went into the box to relieve southpaw Williams when the Desloge batters were beginning to unlimher their heavy guns. After the game at Desloge, the Iron- ton team went to Flat River and play ed a bouble-herder in the form of a nineteen-inning tie with Federal. After nineteen innings of very excit ing baseball, this game was called with a 1 to 1 score. It was a pitchers' battle between Robertson for Ironton, and Glore, hurling for Federal. Gov ro, of Bonne Terre, who played at Desloge with the Desloge team, play ed a crreat same for Ironton at third base in the contest with Federal. Attend the reqival meeting. SCHOOL BOOKS NET CASH.
