Her Ball Team Barely Eecapee a
Shut-Out by the Billings
A VERY FAST GAME
h.elena Cniuldn't lilt the Hall and
\Vas Outplayed at Every Point.
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
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
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

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.

Another Annual Event of the

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

collection consisted of lunoh cloths,
centerpieces, a handsome white pllow
embroidered in pink roses; the sweet'
peas, poppies, pansies, roses and all the
flowers looked so real that one was al
most tempted to pluck them. 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
The study of sweet peas, in watercol
or, by Miss Hattie Brayton, was very
pretty, and also the water color work

"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

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

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
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

The firms making displays were
