Will Champion went to Salida a
week ago Friday and while there he
played with fast Salida team
against the War Eagles of Denver.
This team was played on Saturday
and Sunday and he got a three aacker
and a stolen base In each game.
The War Eagles, who were to have
played Rockvale on Tuesday, called
the game off because of the fact that
several of their players were so alck
that they were not in a condition to
play a reliable game.
The Rockrale team at present is on
a still hunt for the so-called cham
pions of Fremont county but thus far
their diligent search has been in vain.
Anyone knowing the whereabouts of
that aggregation will confer a favor up
on Ed Agard and the other members
of the Rockvale team by Informing
them of the exact location of said
team.
It seems that Penrose and Florence
are claiming the championship of the
county totally without regard to the
claims or the record of Rockvale. The
Rockvale men do not intend to stand
for this and ir games can be schedul
ed they will leave no atone unturned
to firing the honor home.

The Canfield mine worked four days

prevailed and this was exceedingly

before he could move.
