ABBEVILLE TEAM DE THEIR RIVALS Wm P fireene. Jr.) I \ " - ' Abbeville won the first game of the series with Greenwood Thursday on the local diamond by the score of 6 to 5. Allen did the hurling for Abbeville while Ethridge carried the burden for Greenwood. Allen, Ab beville's star hurler, was touched for but six hits and was steady in the pinches. Ethridge was hit rather freely although he pitched a good ;ame. He got one hit off Allen which ft-as good for three bases, the only ;riple of the game. Bradley for Greenwood in left ield made several pretty catches, one n particular. Monroe for Green vood also did fine fielding. Rain halted the game for twenty ninutes at the beginning of the ifth inning, but play was resumed ind the game continued without in ;erruption until Umpire Owings nade a rotten decision on a play at lome plate. Then came a swarm )f mad fans on the diamond, and the :orce had to be used to keep some :rom the umpire. This was soon :leared up and play was again re lumed. While fielding a ball over second n the ninth and trying to force a nan at that base, Robert Galloway 'ell over the bag and was struck in he back by the runner. He was hurt >adly and time was called for awhile, >ut he again took his place at short stop and stayed in for the rest * of h? game. Ttie oacung ieature ox tue game vas the hitting of Big Bruce Gallo vay who secured three hits the first ;hree times at the bat, two going for singles and one for a double. Gal oway E. and Clark each secured a louble and a single out of four times it the bat, while Reames got two [ingles out of four times at the bat. Box Score: GREENWOOD AB R. H.

Jmpire, Owings. BASE HITS AND FOULS. The day before the first game the Jreenwood-Index put it, "On to Lbbeville," but it seems that Abbe ille was "on to Greenwood" in that ;ame. A good many fans thought the r| narks of His Umps Owings to pitch ir Allen about looking at him were intirely out of place. We think tne Jmps was right. If we looked like iiin we wouldn't want anybody to ook at us either. Pitcher Allen is the boy with the foods. All the other teams know his. The game he pitched against Anderson Monday was the finest ex libition of fine pitching shown here ;his year. He did his part to win :he game, and several times the win ding run should have been brought ,n. Kennedy is a promising young pitcher. He is not old enough to play in a league with so many seasoned pitchers. But notwithstanding his youth, he has done good work for Abbeville. Barring hard luck and a lack of proper support at times he FEATS OF OLD YESTEROA1 would have won more games. Nc body except a man with the neces sary courage and pluck would hav worked so consistently every time h has been called on. He should mak a star in the intercollegiate game next year. Jim McMillan has been walkin] ever since the Carolina League open ed. If it ran another sixty days h would have walked half around th globe in distance, and cleared th switch for the other half. There are but two real basebal players in the world. They are T; Cobb and Bruce Galloway. Of cours* Babe Ruth and a few others thinl they are players, but they do no rank with Ty and they will not rani with Bruce when he goes up to thi big leagues. His fielding and hittinj are fine and when he learns to rui a little better there is nothing tha will stop him. Sanford Howie's foot is mendinj fast and that means trouble for somi body. We are agin' bunting. We believi in slamming it out for four bases o maybe five. The Galloway boys were hittinj them out yesterday. Chick hit safel; four times out of four, Bruce threi out of four, and Eugene two out o four. The "Big Hit" Sn baseball however, is Col. A. B. Galloway, o me uanuway duiuci ouup, x ne t^uiu nel played baseball when the gami was played for the fun of the play era and not for the amusement of th fans. It always happened on Satur day afternoon after a hard week* ploughing that the teams gathers in the pasture for the weekly game Sometimes nobody was present ex cept the members of the home am the visiting teams. They did not nee< an "empire" then. There were n strikes unless the ball was struck al and everybody knew when he wa out. They didn't have baseball shoe with spikes either. Everybody tool off their shoes in order to play. Som played in stocking feet and som TmrofnntoH TvifVi V>ro<v?lioa rnlloH iir Big rocks were used for bases. An< eerybody could hit the ball. That wa along about the time when Osca Cobb pitched for Buck Level am when A. J. Arnette Ellis, the cy clone from Santuc, sometimes pitch ed for Long Cane in the stubble fiel of Frank Nickles' "paw."

"Sit Steady in Boat." Columbia, July 27.?B. Harri commissioner of agriculture gave oi the following statement yesterday "The government report of Jui 25 of 72.4 could not be consider* a bearish report. I do not think thi we will have a ten per cent increa: in acreage on account of the floo< and wet season. If it had not bee for the floods and wet late season " think the acreage increase wou! have been fifteen per cent. Howev< the good Lord has taken spec! charge of the cotton situation th year.

All this goes to prove thj t spot cotton has a stronger positic than it has had in the last two year I want to advise spot holders of co I ton not to sell a bale unless they ai e obliged to as we are now facing ;vorld famine in cotton and we cai not make as much cotton this yei e as the world will need for next year r pnnqumntion. Our croD this vear wi not reach over ten million bales an it will take ideal seasons from no on to make this amount. You ai bound to see high cotton in 192 Sit steady in the boat and keep ot of debt this year. Let this be yoi watchword."

Chicago, July 27.?Several Chica go industrial plants were preparing against a possible shortage of coal by hurriedly equipping furnaces and boilers with facilities for burning oil as fuel, it was learned here today Thirty per cent of the city's pump, ing stations and incenerators have been eauiDDed with oil burners, ac cording to Deputy's Commissioner Burkehardt. The cement industry is beginning to feel the pinch of restricted coaJ supplies, William M. Kinney, general manager of the Portland Cement Association, said in a statement. Some plants he added have been forced to close and it is probable oth ers may have to do so or operate on part time unless relief is had soon.
