A VERY FAST GAME h.elena Cniuldn't lilt the Hall and \Vas Outplayed at Every Point. T'Imnolirrow's Uniae. 4lelena barely escaped a shut-out to day in the fastest ball game over seen in Billings, which was witnessed by fully 13,000 people and played in one hour and forty. minutes. Roger Dell zer, the new Billings pitcher, was in the box for the home team eatrLthe Hel enaites were almost uttn 'ble to ,solve his del mery,,s making four hits during the are gime. And the visitors were lucky enough to make two of them in the eighth inning, when a double by MoDonough, a sacrifice by St. Vrain and a single by Lloyd gave them their only score, an earned run. The Cowboys gave Deuzer splendid support, making but three fielding errors, two of which were excusable ones. St. Vrain pitched for Helena and was touched up for just a dozen hits, one of which was a double, two three baggers and a home run by Zearfoss, which was one of the long'est hits ever made on the Billings grounds. Helena fielded well, being credited with but three errors, but was outplayed at every point by the Cowboys and the game was too one-sided to be exciting, ex nept for two wonderful running catches of long flies by Scott tu the left field, the home run by Zearfoss~a the long hits by Flannery and N eeloy. The visitors made huLb remarkable play during the game-a one-handed pickup and quick throw of a hot grounder by Burton-but whenever they did make a good play they were applauded. Most of the game was played in a drizzling rain and it is remarkable that there were not more errors when the slippery condition of the ball is consid ered. There was no kicking whatever during the contest, Umpires Mains and Johns of Helena bth giv lent satisfaction. Thb tpok the fearful drubbing Fey got gracefully, but are very much chagrined and will do their best to redeem themselves in the games tomorrow and Sunday. Their new St. Louis pitcher, Maupin, will be in the box tomorrow, while McNeeley, who, is usually a hoodoo for Helena, will twirl for the Cowboys and very likely win his game. The only disappointment about to day's game was that Helena was not shut out, as she deserved to be, but her usual luck came to .e- rescue when she bunched tw ier four hits in one inning. af" unnecessary to describe the game in detail. Helena's goose eggs were the main feature and it is too bad that her nest was not filled with them. The offoiial score below tells the tale.

The Helena team is accompanied by about thirty rooters, but they had no chance to root today. There was very little bettitp done. The backers of the Helena team wanted odds in this big metropolitan town, which Billings was not willing to give, although her fans were keen to turn themselves loose for even money. As one enthusiast put it, Heleun should have stopped off to play ball at Columbus or Laurel, where she would not have been outclassed, but if she had gone to Miles City or Sheridan, she would have been beaten sure. Hawloy, BillinJg's new first baseman, is a cracnkerjack anu the fanls have voted him 0. K. He got two hits to day, fielded well and was in the ganme all the time. In the third inning Venzer pitched bir seven balls, two men striking out inal the other going out oil a fly. But, in the third he pitched but five, when all of them went out on flies. Deuearr struck out eight men and then, when he found he had a ball team behind him, let Helena hit it. Scott's first wonderful catch almost tickled Denser to death. Burton accepted ten chances at nset. ond, with but a single error, but he couldn't hit a baloon. * * The errors by Marshall and Flannery were both excusable. In fart, nearly every error made, on each side, was ex cusable. It was a clean fielding game. It was the first time many of the Billings fans had seen the reorganized nine play a real game, and now the whole town is stuck on the team. Helena only got six men on the bases during the entire glnle, and would only have had that number of runs if they had all scored. The Helena people call St. Vrain their best pitcher. He is a fair twirler, to..r-in a different class. But if $t. Vrain is Helena's best, the Cowboys won't do a thing to Maupin tomorrow. Every time Helena was whitewashed the band played a dirge. And it oc ourred so often that the spectators learned the tune by heart. Helena probably realizes by this time that at last she is up against a real ball nine. Helena was figuring on gettingltwo of tile three games, but she will be fa vored by remarkable luck if site gets one, ITALIAN STAllS A MAN. A N. P. Laborer Attempte to End Life of Foreman Andy Myrold. An Italian laborer on the Northern Paciflo railroad stabbed Andy Myrold, foreman of the steel gang, at Huntley yesterday morning and then made his escape, but was caught today at Cor inth, southeast of Huntley on the B. & M. and brought to Billings tonight. The Italian on Wednesday night ask ed Myrold for the handcar so as to come to Billings, but as it is against the rules of the company. to let the handoar to any emploves,' his request wsa de nied. This angered the native of sunny Italy and he showed it, too. Thursday morning he told Mr. Myrold that he did not have to take orders from him, whereupon the foreman laid him off. The Italian then proceeded to show his devilish spirit. Having a good oppor. tunity soon after he drew a two-edged blade stilletto when Mr. Myrold's back was turned apd drove the blade Into the latter's right shoulder, making a bad flesh wound. The Italian then made his esoapeLby running through a gang of his own countrymen, who made room for him. He started south and was not heard' from until last night when the sheriff's office received word that he was near Corinth. Deputy Sheriff Sayles went down there today and captured the man. Mr. Myrold was brought to Billings yesterday and is now a patient at St. Vincent's hospital. No serious appre hensions are felt about his wound.

A SUCCESSFUL FAIR Another Annual Event of the Yellowstone Fair Assocla tion Passes Into History. VERY LARGE CROWDS (uotd Displays in the Floral Hall. Ilnt(lerntinllg Horse Ralces alnd .tlany Otliet' Attractl ions. Aiot.thor annual mneeting of the Yel lowetone Fair and Race association has passed into history, leaving behind the foot.prints of ono of the most soccess ful evnuts in the history of the county. ForEfour lnys this week Billings has fist lbI Tprosotlu(' of the fair and its large uututber of visitors, who comi. nmuced arriving as early as Tuesday morning from (]leundive, Miles Oity, Forsyth, Hed Lodge, G( fe elena, Bozemoan, lit ingstou, other cities throughout ttle . The fair had blhn morte w .0 advertised than in prenvious years and besides, the rail roidtls nmndo the exceptionally low rate of onii fure for round trip, which op. portunity was availed by many who otherwise would have remained away. Ever sine enesday the streets have been crowded each morning, while the town was nearly deserted in the afternoons to the benefit of the fair. Hotels and lodging Iouses have had all they could attend to, it being necessary to double up occupants of sleeping apartments. The weather up to this writing (Fri. day morning) during the entire fair, with the exception of Wednesday after noon, when a dust storm visited the city, was all that could be deal ed. The attendanee throughout uarge, the total untou1 t of ad mn for the first three day amo..!g to as much as all four da. year. This was a fact glnlly hai ed by the fair manage ment, us it places the assooiation in' better flunancial coudition. All race purses were paid in full, premiums will be treated likewise and the man ugement will have a neat balance on the right side of the ledger, hi the Floral Hall. The various displays in the floral hall this year were not as large as in former years, yet what there was was tastily arranged and gave a good effect. it was no doubt too early for the fruits, which have heretofore made such a splendid showiuig. Neither Besper farm nor Olney Taylor of Park City had any display at all, while 1lst year these two displays were admired by hundreds, and their absence was com mented on by many. Had the fair been two weeks later these two farms would have added greatly to the dis. play, for it is said that the frqit is of much finer quality than last year. Splendid displays of various vegetha bles were made by Curtis, W. H. Hef. ner, Mrs. Keyes, W. O. Parker. Ed. O'Donnell, W. D. White, J. H. Dover and Geo. L. Murr. Mr. Murr also had a lice collection of apples. The Crow Indian sohool at Crow Agency also dism played some good vegetables, which had been cultivated by the students. The collection of fancy work, al though not so large as it might have been, was beautiful and greatly admir ed by all, The embroidery work was simply elegant, a greater part being exhibited by Mrs. T. J. Boutoo. Her .·sgq T HEI.. SLinton Clothing Co. Q COTIOTHING AND 1 FThNISHINGS Everything oftthe Latest and Nobbiest for Men's Wear.

The dis. play of drawn work was also very fine, showing most careful and neat work. Mrs. Robt. Leavens had a nice collec. tion of this work with abmerous blue ribbons attached. There was also a splendid display of battenburg, two of the pieces, a sideboard scarf and round center piece, being especially fue. This work was displayed by Miss Jessie McKellar, sister of Mrs. Dr. Rinehart, who also had a beautiful lunch cloth and napkins, embroidered in white; she also exhibited several very pretty paintings. Other studies in oil paint lug were entered by Mrs. S. F. F. Scott and received much praise, especiallylher "Moonlight Scene" and the 'dPoppies and Roses." She had on exhibition about twenty-five paintings, in oil and pastel, nearly all being in beautiful frames. The study of sweet peas, in watercol or, by Miss Hattie Brayton, was very pretty, and also the water color work doun by Miss Lizzie Barstow. The "Blue ribbon" pencil drawings were exhibited by Miss Lulu Bailsback, who also received first prize for her neat doll outfit, Mrs. Sam Garviu had a very fine collection of different fancy articles, receiving a goodly number of blue ribbons. Miss Gertrude Crowe had some very veat, pretty work, her small battanburg piece being wonder. fully executed for a girl of her age; she also had some neat articles made from fancy handkerchiefs, a piu-cuslb lotu 'ud handkerchief case. It was said by several who have visited county fairs that this year's display of em broidery and drawuwork is the finest eover exhibited in the state. Some very beautiful flowers were dis played, among them being large bask. ets of sweet peas, nasturtiums, daisies, asters, roses, marguerites and numerous other kinds. Flowers were .exhibited by Miss Panton, Mrs. H. S. Hammond, Mrs. Ellers, Mrs. Wilkinson, Mise Sohmudlach and others. In the canned fruit display were jars of fruit, preserves and glasses of jelly, exhibited by Mary and Katie Flanagan, Mrs. H. S. Hammond, Mrs. P. J. Donuchoe, Mrs. S. F. Scott and Mrs. W. S. Bellas. One entire table was laden with cakes, pies, bread and all other dain ties, furnishing a very pretty and tempting display. Much of this ex hibit was entered by girls and they re ceived nearly as many premiums as the ladies. This entire display was very fine and the judges enjoyed a feast when it came time to sample the articles in order to award the prem inues. Just outside the floral hall, at the northeast corner, were exhibited a number of crates of fine poultry, con sisting of chickens and ducks. The exhibitors were F. L. Mann, M. Plans gan, Mrs. F. Wilhite, Bert and Harold Tomlinson, E. Groin and Mrs. Sam Garvin. The firms making displays were Ohapple Bros. drug store, Yegen B ps., the A. L. Babcock Hdw. Co., and Yel. lowstone Valley Mills. Ohapple ex hibited a nice line of fine soaps, per fumes and 'hair tonics. Yegen Bros.' display consisted of stoves, plumbing, an enameled brass bed, nicely fitted up, a beautiful set of china dishes and a number of buggiesand wagons. An addition was added to the southeast side of the floral hall and connecting with it by a large archway, ,in which was found the stove display of the A. L. Babcock Hdw. Co. A specialty was made of exhibiting the Majestic ('Cotltuewtd on Eigwhth Page.
