The Jamestown Commercial club
are utterly ignorant of any such ac
tion, says the club's president and all
members interviewed. Valley City
may not be able to see after eight
o'clock in the evening, but it is evi-j
dent from the above writing that1
they either have some good dreamers
or we will soon have some of their
writers in the Asylum city, on the
outskirts. We know how hard it is
for Valley City to lose a game of I
base ball to Jamestown and will even
go so far as to forfeit the game
when they are in danger of being de
feated. But why harp about it all
summer. They know "The world
hates a quitter" and try as they may,
they cannot make the people believe
that the team was in the
right. They say it is "no disgrace
to run when you are schared" but this
is one of the times it was a disgrace
and Valley City is just Jjeginning to
realize the fact.
Come on Valley, play to win and
if you can't win, be a good loser.
It's no disgrace to be beaten by a
better team. Of course, when the
Valley City Commercial club pays
enormous sums of money for a base
hall team to beat Jamestown and
can't make good, they have a holler
coming, but don't try to biame it on
the umpire.
As for the Commercial club of
Jamestown, taking a hand in the de
cisions of the umpires. Why, Val
you know the Jamestown base
ball management is perfectly able to
handle the team even if your manage
nient isn't. So you have lost another
chance tn make you,'- team appear
in the right. If Valley City would
put a man on the field as captain
•who could control the team they
would have more agreeable base
ball. Who ever heard of the players
refusing to go on the field to finish
a game? If those were Jamestown
players they would be benched and
all the influence of the Commercial
club would not be sufficient to put
them back on the field again.
Valley City and Jamestown play
again at Jamestown ball grounds
Sunday and Monday, June 11 and 12.
It is to be hoped there will lie no fur
ther unpleasantness.
A new swindle is being worked on
the farmers of this state by men
coining to their place and hiring out
to them. After lie has worked three
or four weeks the hired man claims
he must write to one of the othei
farmers for whom he has previous
ly worked, and in a few days a check
is received. Of course the hired man
must have some one to identify him,
so he gets his present employer to do
so. After the money is received the
man leaves for parts unknown and
Mr. Farmer must stand the loss. Be
ware of identifying strangeis.

St. Henry Reaches Height of 2000

Fargo, N. D., June 9.—St. Henry
and his Curtiss Biplane have been
here and the expert driver of the
rreat artificial bird made an instan

who thronged the fair grounds yes
terday afternoon, the second day of
the U. C. T. convention.
It was a good natured crowd, and
although it had to wait a little on
the great bird man, still it was worth
the time.
St. Henry had no frills or fussing
to do when he made his first flight
shortly after 4:30 yesterday, but he
took to the air like a bird. He didn't
go high the first time—about 300
feet, merely to. give the. new engines
a thorough testing, for it is the larg
est engine that was ever put on a
Curtiss machine and the cylinders
The weather was simply perfect
for a flight, although St. Henry says
that when he got up about 500 feet
Everything went along nicely"
said St. Henry to a Fargo reporter.
I had never made a flight with
this new engine, but at a glance I
saw that everything was all right,

worked so nicely as this one did. I
