and Sunday.
Miss Blanche Stroup visited
Miss Mario Shannon, at Mount
Carmol Hospital, ColumhuB, on
Walluped Logan's Busters
to a Frazzle.
That Was the Matter With
the Visiting Team.
Tho local team's percentage
wont down soycral, in tho gloomy
game of last Sunday. There were
a number of reasons, as there al
ways are, for this. The nrincipal
cause was the overwhelming supe
riority of the New Straitsvillo
boys as sluggers ; then they had a
twirlor, a young follow named
Riley, who is mighty promising.
The visiting team was somewhat
split up, and several of their men
wero playing out of position. Thoj'
won, though, because tliey hit the
ball oftener nnd harder, and made
fewer errors, than Logan.
Spencer, the first man up,
cracked the leuther with a long
two-bagger, and an error, a base
on balls, a single and some loose
play following, gave them two
runs for a starter. Tho batting
was merrily kept up all through
the game. Feveral pop Hies and
others that should have been gar
nered by Logan's field scored as
hits, and more of them thai should
have boon easily fielded went
through the opposition like a bull
et through a wall of schmearkase.
Sad, sad the -bitter tale! There
wero whole innings, however,
when Logan did not make any
errors. The tabulated score be
low speaks eloquently of what
might have been 'ind wasn't.

promising young player. Ho has
a good head, and covers ground
woll. In Sunday's game ho had
eight ohancos, and no oriors.
Strange to say, he did tut havo an
assist to first during the entire
gamo. His near sacrifice, in the
second, gavo Logan their first run,
Livingston's sacrifice, just after
wards, scorod another, That was
the best playing on Logan's side
in tho game.
Stultz's pinch hits wero iniBsod
sorely at various times. The homo
taimi couldn't seem to get next
(o Riley at all. Riley pitched a
uniformly nico game, and certain
ly seems to havo the making of a
star In him. His -delivery is
graceful and easy, and though the
out drop was hh main dependence,
ho apparently had hli hatters
guessing most of tho time,
Camp was in good fielding form,
as his record shows. Like the
other boyn he failed to get his
batting oyo In working order until
late In the game, when In- picked
mil a good one. Ho was caught
off first in a double on Aliens fly

New Brick Plant,

L. Douglas and Franklin Rubrecht
of Columbus, and Charles L. and
John C. Baird, of this city met
Saturday, April 21, and incorpo
rated the Hocking Valley Brick
and Terra Cotta Company of Col
umbus, capitalized at 300,000.
The corporation owns 200 acres of
land near this city close to the
Hocking Valley Railroad. They
will begin the work of building
tho brick plant 6oon and expect
to be in operation bv the latter
part of July. Tlrs plant will om
ploy 100 men. After this begins
operation the' expect to erect a
terra cotta plant to cost about
$"130,000, which will give employ
ment to 130 additional men. The
land owned by the company is un
derlaid witii a six foot vein of coal
and four veins of fire clay averag
ing about eight feet in thickness
and first-class quality.
This sounds like business far

men in addition to the present
number and a new traction line
promises a brilliant future for this
