first ball thrown was a lift!

and retired the side. Roauokes 0.
Plmsbus 5.
The fourth and fifth inning*
were not signalized by any
run-getting, bul Kirby made a beau?
tiful catch of a foul fly, after a long
run and was liberally applauded
Sixth?As the Ehtrous boys were
1.iking thdr places in the !;. Id at the
end of the fifth, the mascot of the
team, Reefer's old white dog, strolled
out to the pitcher's box, and aftei
taking a look over the diamond
quietly walked away with an injured
. 11 r that seemed to s* y, '"Well, you
fellows can't play ba : a little b:r."
The appearance of :he old chum
seemed to infuse m *v life into the
home team, and they played better]
ball afterwards. KeePr was first at
the bat, and be knocked a short fly to
Leach. Wigmore placed a litrle one
in Opdyke's hands, but he threw high
and while Rosenthal was off
the plate Steve touched it. He
was caught napping there, however,
and Fuller threw nim out. Beck got
a life at first, stole second and third,
and went home on a wild throw.
Sproul died at first. Phoobus failed
to score. Roanokes, 1; Phrcbus, 5.
Seventh?Ford was .-truck by th?
pitcher and skirmished around to i
third. Alex Brodie also got his base
on four bad balls. IMin struck out.
Kirby hit to left bringing Ford in
and advancing A. Brodie to t hird. J
Brodie's hit brought/.. Brodie in.and
sent Kirby to third, who came home I
on Reefer's sacrifice. Wigmore f
fouled out, retiring the side. Beach
knocked a high fly to right, but Ford
got too far under it and the runner
went to third, and home on Roscn
tbal's sacrifice. Hayden knocked a!
safe one to center, and went to third |
on Leach's hit to right. He stayed
there as P. Fuller fell a victim. Roan?
okes, 4; Phodbus, 0.
Neither side scored in the two re?
maining innings, but it was very ex?
citing and the cranks were kept on the j
qui vive of expectancy. The dogagain
in the ninth started jut across the
diamond and A. Brodie, who was at
the bat, saw him. It discouraged
Alex, to think that their mascot
didn't appear till th j sixth inning
and he struck out. Dolin, probably
feeling the same depression, knocked j
a little one in the infield and was i
thrown out. at iir^t. It began to look j
squally for the big boys in gray, but
Kirby, who has been getting his eye
on the ball remarkably 'well of late.1
got first bag on balls. I. Brodie was
next at the bat and he knocked a
corking two-bagger to left field fence
advancing Kirby to third. With
Keefer at the bat it louked as if Roa
noke would tie the score, but Harry
didn't get it on the bat at the right
place and Rosenthal got it up before
he reached first. The score:

He would make a good

experience in the State Senate would
stand him in pond stead. Besides
this he is as a lawyer equalled by hut

A gentleman who arrived in the
city lai-t evening from Bramwell
brings the story of a dastardly murder
committed there on Thursday.
As Wood Dews, a hard-working
young colored man was crossing the
bridpe leading from Mill Creek, an
adjoining settlement, he was shot and
killed by some one hiding in the bush
on the banks of a ravine.
Dews was accompanied by his
dusky sweetheart and a dog. The
first shot struck the dog, and the ani?
mal foil from the bridge to the sharp
rocks underneath. Another shot im?
mediately followed, .Urikinp Dews
and wounding him. The girl fled
and Dews drew himself along across
the bridge. Just before be pot acres,
however, another shot was fired with
fatal effect.
The man's body was carried to the
village, and last night it passed
through this city for Lynchbarp, bis
former home. It is supposed that the
cause of the murder was jealousy, and
I a man who was in love with the girl
j who accompanied Dews, is suspected.

Mr. Joseph A. Peck, of Craip coun

The Executive Committee Decide that
it Is Xot Feasible.
Whereas, it is the opinion of this
committee that if the ways and means
could be made clear that it would be
desirable to hold a State fair thisfa'l;
but the present condition of the af?
fairs of the society does not encour?
age us to undertake such a thing,
and we see no way to such an end.
The citizens of Richmond should take
the matter of raising a necessary fund
? in hand and so place tho society in
. position to hold the fair. It is the
further ?pinion of thecommittee that
'?a fund of $10,000 would have tobe
placed in the hands of the committee
and perhaps a guarantee of $5,000 to
meet any possible deficit; therefore,
Resolved, that it is not feasible to
undertake a State fair this fall.
