The Natal Day of the Republic Cele brated in That Fashion in Forsyth. All roads led to Forsyth Friday and the town was headquarters for the grandest Fourth of July celebration ever held in this section of the state. Not like the western part of the state, this section was favored with most agreeable weather, barring slight windstorms which occurred occasionly. This was, however, the only inconven ience experienced, and everyone was expressive of commendation of the suc cess attained in the celebration. Main street as well as the interior and exterior of the principal business houses was beautified with cedars, flags and bunting in commemoration of the natal day. As early as Thursday evening peo ple from the adjoining country began to arrive and at a reasonable hour the following morning the principal thor oughfares were thronged with citizens, a class that was never excelled in en thusiasm and patriotism, and Forsyth presented a very metropolitan appear ance. The slumbers of Forsyth residents were interrupted at an early hour by the cannonading imposed by a number of young men who remained up to see the sun's rays fall upon the scene of the contemplated festivities. The day's events started with a con cert by the Forsyth band. This was followed by a song by the choir after which Rev. C. D. Danner offered a prayer. The large concourse of people was again favored by another song by the choir, and H. R. Marcey read the Declaration of Independence. Attorney Gibson, who had been se lected to deliver the oration was not present, he having gone west Wednes day night in response to a telegram. This feature of the program was not overlooked, however, for Mr. Danner was persuaded upon to speak. Although he had but a few minutes to prepare himself for this event Mr. Danner fulfilled the part to the entire satisfaction of everi'one and with credit to himself, and the committee in charge of this department desire to thank him for his effort. When the speaker had concluded the following athletic sports were pulled off: 50 yard dash for men—Woods, first; K. me, second. 100 yard dash for men—Woods, first; Coleman, second. Fat men's race—Wettereau, first; F. Johnson, second. 50 vard three-legged race— Woods an i Coleman, first, Kane and Kam bour, second. 50 yard boys' race—John Maguire, fi Fred Bills, second.

Running jump—Woods, first; A. Davidson, second. Quite a number of horses had been brought in by their owners and the races which were pulled off after dinner, resulted as follows: 300 j'ard dash—Choisser's Tenbrook, first; Spang's Topsy, second; Lane's Bob "Wade," third. 300 yard pony race, for boys—Ray Lane, first; Jas. McGraw, second; Whit Carolan, third. 600 yard dash—Spang's Rocky Ford, first; Terrett's Secret, second; Chois ser's Simom, third; Izling's Island, fourth. After the races a tug of war took place between two teams with Hayden and Carolan captains, which was won by the former. This event was followed by' a ball game between a picked team and the Rosebud team which resulted in a victory for the former by a score of 17 to 15 » The band gave another concert in the evening after which a grand dis plsy of fireworks took place. A dance given bv the Forsyth band concluded the day's festivities. A large crowd was present and barring the music, which was all that was ob tainable at the time, the occasion was a grand success both financially and socially and the band boys use this means of thanking Mr. T. Alexander for donating the use of the hall. One noticeable and gratifying fact is that the local sportsmen allowed outsiders to carry off the prizes in most of the events, and judging from the expressions e\eryone enjoyed them selves and are unanimous in their declarations of gratitude for the grand celebration prepared by the citizens of Forsyth. Everything- passed off peaceably and without a hitch and the only casualty reported is that of Ed Sweetser, a son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Sweetser, who received a painful cut on the chin. He, with a number of other young boys was shooting off fire-crackers. One of his playmates placed one in a beer bottle after lighting and before young Sweetser could get away the bottle ex ploded with the above result. He was taken to Dr. Wilson's office where it wa's found necessary to take six stitches in the wound. Sutton's l*avIllion Show. Sutton's Mammoth Pavillion Show which comes to this city next Monday July 14 is far superior to the average traveling troupes. They carry their own canvas, seats and necessary stage equipments.* In addition to this they have their own uniformed band com prised of first class soloists and musi cians. They give a great street par ade daily and a free open air concert each evening. Mr. Sutton has spent a life time in the show busines and is a thoroughly qualified manager. It is his aim to please his patrons and in order to do so he has spared no ex pense to make this the best canvass repertoire show on the road.

Forsyth Ball Team Loses to the Big Mitts**Score 22 to 5. * The Forsyth Baseball team, accom panied by a number of friends, went to Miles City Sunday to play its maiden game of the season with the Big Mitts of that place. The contest resulted in a signal victory for the latter, however, the score being 22 to 5. Owing to the change in the arrival here of east bound trains and some misunderstanding between the man agement and other members of the team the task of mustering a nine for the game proved quite strenuous, it not being generSlly-knmvn until about two hours prior to train time that a game had been assured the Milesians. Both Manager Wright and Captain Fletcher prognosticated the outcome of the game, for their men had not been together this season, and it was known they were lacking in team work. But owing to the fact that the Milesians had provided transportation for the locals and had made other arrange ments for a game, it was decided not to disappoint the Big Mitts, regardless éfî rtf et« c î ï sec «t s-es-s-f- etc ts-e- 4ëtéféç f Vour Invitation ♦ ♦♦ * f (?' 9> 9' (fi 9» 9* If you have never had any dealings witi) us, please con sider ttys ao Invitatior) to give us a trial : : : S The MERCHANTS BANK, I * 7 # THOMAS ALEXANDER, President, W.

Owing to the lateness of the train an afternoon game was out of the question but the Forsythians got their remnants together and went down, arriving at Custer's metropolis in time to com mence playing at six o'clock in the eve ning. On account of the many rebukes which were encountered in arranging for the game only a fair-sized crowd was attracted, and although the For syth team was defeated, the boys dem on strated that with practice they are equal to their opponents on the dia mond. A return game will probably be played here in the near future for arrangements are already being made and meals for the visitors, as well as transportation, will be provided for. Considering the circumstances all of the members played their positions in good shape. Laurin Smith, who held down short stop for the Forsythians, did excellent work, and his playing gave the spectators a fair idea of his ability and what he could accomplish with a little practice. Although the Milesians have been continually practicing since the open ing of the Dali season they are credited with six errors, while the home team made but three. The sporting editor of the Yellow stone Journal frantically expands, laughs up his sleeve and fights his head for over a column in that paper in telling how it was done, etc. No one can blame him for this, for it has been some time since he has had oc casion to write no a ball game be tween these two teams with pleasure, and the News serves notice upon his majesty that ere the season has ended the Forsythians will be there with the goods. In all the space appropriated by the Journal in relating the game not a single line was devoted to Dr. Bruning, the alleged umpire, for his service*. The News does not contend that the aforesaid doctor's decisions were the cause of Forsyth's defeat, but they are becoming so unsavory to visiting clubs that they cause general dissension among the fans as well as the players.
