Messrs. W. H. McDavitt, K. H.
McDavitt and Frank C. Pierce re

met a man from a village further
south in Tamaulipas, who informed
him that the village had been at
tacked and robbed by bandits, who
: had even gone so far as to extort
money from the priests. The man
further informed Mr. McDavitt* that
the federal troops had arrived in
time to save the village from
further plunder.

Business Men Win in 11 Innings.
Sunday afternon at the ball park,
the High School team went down be
fore the Business men, in one of the
closest. and hardest played amateur
games ever seen at the local
ground.
The ever-changing Business Men's
line-up showed Stellman in the box.
He fanned the first three men up,
but later was touched up for a total
of 9 runs.
The first five innings were rather
•tame, the score being 7 to 2 in favor
of the High School at the beginning
o fthe last part of the sixth. The
Business Men, being at bat in this
session, started on the war path and
when the dust cleared away six run
ners had crossed the pan.
At their next chance the High
School started something that looked
like a rally, but. it died before more
than one runner had reached homo
in safety. With the scoVe thus tied
the end of the ninth inning was
' reached. In the tenth the High
School drew a blank, and the Busi
{ Men punched terrific holes In the air
trying to locate tlte ball, but failed
•to connect. In tly first part of the
Eleventh, Barnetii scored on Egly’s
s '*4iy
single and things looked better for
the High School. However, tjiey
were doomed to disappointment as,
with two downa and one on second,
Kowalski, representing the Business
Men, knocked a triple and stole home
while the High School were sleeping
off .the effects of it.
Barset and Kowalski—the former
by his consistent work in center
field for the High School, and the
latter by the play that won the game
for the opposing team—deserve
special mention. The line-ups were:
