Power’* Rexall Team Defeats Biloxi Team.
Power’s Rexall Baseball Team went
over to Biloxi last Sunday and played
the Biloxi Baseball Club. The score
was 14-2 in favor of the Bay St. Louis
club, of which John A. Dillard is the
wide-awake and successful manager.
The Biloxi aggregation—all good play
ers—were badly beaten, as the score
shows. But the superiority of the Rex
all’s had to exert itself, winning eight
games out of nine this season, and tney
do not intend losing any more.
The hard hitting and fine pitching of
L. Luc, who struck out 17 men and
made only one error, was the feature of
the game. The players were enthusi
astically entertained at Biloxi and were
loudly applauded at their success. The
game was witnessed by one of the larg
est crowds yet known in Biloxi, and it
was they that gave the winners a big

of the best ever organized in Bay St.
Louis. The Rexalls will meet the Ac
mes, another crack club, on July 4th,
at the Woodmen picnic, and the result
