Baseball Milan vs. Trenton.
The second game between Milan
aud Trenton was played here Wed
nesday. It was a very close game,
tho scare standing 10 to 11 in favor ef
Trenton. Milan did not play their
best nine on accouut of a misunder
standing between the Browns aud
4B's, and which caused their defeat
so the club claims. Luther Jackson
was our catcher, and it was the first
time he ever caught behind the bat.
A. V. Loving, who pitched for the
.boys, has not pitched any before this
seasou; in fact, we played several boys
who kave not played any this season.
F. Brendes, of the Trentons, played
first base well, even if he was knocked
out of time. But he never could
get his feet to cover home plate, so
he was charged up with five goose
eggs. The game passed off very
quietly, and we must say that the
Trenton boys area whole team whn
it comes to being clever, aud we will
be glad to see them at any time.
Will Scott umpired the game. The
boys will cross bats in Trenton at an
early day. ' B. B.

no fears of "Prickly Ash Bitters," as
it is a medicine, and by reason of its
