very interesting one, and notwith?
standing that the Roanokes won an
easy victory, some magnificent exhi?
bitions of ball playing were made on
both sides. Dann pitched a beauti?
ful game for the visitors, and puzzled
the home boys immensely. Dulani y
did some good work behind the bat,
anil is not unlike P at Rollins, of the
Hagerstowne,in build and movements.
Whenever a ball wus knocked in the
direction of left field, no matter how
hard a run it would require to catch
it, everybody would begin to yell :
"Dolan's got it,"' andDolan always
got it too.
The game was called promptly at
4:30 o'clock,with Wigmore at the" bat.
Wigmore struck a Uy to McDowell
and sat down. Beck made a safe hit,

captured it. Dunn made a safe hit
to center field and got to second on
errors, but the side was retired before
he could reach third.
Wigmore got base on balls. Beck
knocked a dandy down through center
terfield, and reached second on error,
lu the meantime Wigmore was en?
deavoring to beut the hall home, but
was retired at the plate. Beck stole

then third on an error of the pitcher.
