Locals Win Thursday;
Meet Defeat Sunday
The ML Sterling Essex won their
third straight game at the looA lot
last Thursday afternoon, when they
defeated the Cynthlana outfit to the
tune of 4 to 1. Towns end was on the
mound for the' locals and twirled his
usual, splendid game. The entire
team played airtight ball, the catch
ing of Monk and the hitting of Bills,
Pett and Monk being features of
the game. '
Ob Sunday, however, it was an en
tlrely different story. The Winches
ter Dodgers were the attraction here
and the largest crowd ever in then
norV- wna nreaent. Before the game
started the locals were confident of
victory and the Winchester outfit
seemed equally certain they were
doomed to defeat. In the very first
inning the Essex started, the ball roll
lng"and managed to put two tallies
across the plate after two were
down. Prank started the game for.
Mt. Sterling, but had to bo taken out
after the first inning on account of
tearing a ligament loose in his pitch'
ing arm which will likely keep him
out of the game for the rest of the
season. This will Indeed be a hard
blow to the local club, as he was go
ing strong. "Lefty" Townsond ,was
then put in to finish the game and
under the circumstances put up a re-,
markable exhibition as he had al
ready twirled seven Innings la bat
ting practice and with any kind .of
support at all -would have won the
game. It seemed to be an off day
for the entire team as errorsvwere
frequent and always came at the
critical time. Barks, who has here
tofore always been master of all
balls' which came In the direction of
second, was credited, with three er
rors, while his teammates did little
better. Taveher, wtyo was on the
mound for Winchester, twirled k a
wonderful game, only allowing Vae
"locals four hits $ nine innings.
When the Essex came to the bat in
'the last of the ninth the score was
6 to 3' In favor of Winchester and
many fans left the park. However,
the strain had proven too much for
Tavener and he seemed to lose ab
solute control of the ball in this
frame, giving two bases on balls and
hinting a batter, which, coupled with
an error by himself and a hit, tied
the score. At this Juncture Tavener
was jerked and Jene Freeman sub
8tltuted. He proved master of the
situation, retiring the side without
any scoring and continuing through
the twelfth, only, allowing one hit
while he was on the mound. The lo
cals had Wuy opportunities yto score,
but our batters seemed absolutely at
the mercy of the Dodger hurlers. It
was' simply an off day for the entire
team, andnow that they have gotten
it out of their system, we may look
for somo more .winning ball. The
score by innings follows:
Winchester 010 010 211 002 S
Mt. Sterlln 201000 033 0006
Other Games Sunday
Lexington defeated Cynthlana to
the tune of 8 to 4 in the Harrison
county capital, while Paris mopped
up with Mysfllle, winning by a
score of 12 to 4. In tho latter game
Maysville made 13 errors, while Pa
ris pade 18 hits, knocking Shaw and
Blneman to all corners of the- lot,
and incidentally putting Maysville In
to a tie w(th Lexington for first

Maysville Boys' Band
Will Play At Local Fair
The directors of the Montgomery
County Fair last night closed a con
tract with the Maysvillo Boys' Band
for the appearance of that famous
musical organization here to furnish
music for the coming fair. This band
consists of 38 pieces and is consider
ed by mjslcal critics to bo one of
tho really ne bands of America.
The Maysvillo Boys' Band played
at the Ohio state fair last year and
this year they will furnish the muslo
for the Kentucky state fair at Louis
ville. Their appearance at Louisville
and ML Sterling will be the only
dates they will play In Kentucky
this year, they having been booked
solid in other states for the remain
der of the fair season.
The J. F. Murphy Hlpppdrome and
Exposition Shows have been signed
to furnish the attractions on the
midway. This organization cannot
be compared with the so-called car
nival companies which the fair-going
public has been in the habtt of see
ing, it being far superior in size and
class of amusement furnished and in
the cleanliness and beauty of its
equipmenL Traveling In Its own 30
car special train which will arrive in
this city on Sunday afternoon, July
16, the management has extended a
cordial invitation to the public of
ML Sterling to come down, watch
them unload and see the finest show
train in America. ,
It seems that the public never
tires of the balloon ascension and
this year there will be one every day,
Secretary Wilkerson having contract

from five different parachutes at
each ascension.
Thursday has been offcially desig
nated as "Lexington Day" and a big
crowd from that city will come up
for the occasion. Every race on that
day will be for a purse donated by'
Lexington firms.
From the entries coming in, it ap
pears certain that there will be
more and better runners, trotters and
pacers here to compete for the hand-
Lome purses offered than ever before.
The outlook is certainly auspicious
for the biggest and best fair ML
