walking his friends—and be has lota
of friends. During his nine innings
of twirling nine of'the Rock Springs

six connected lor hits, which coup'
led with the Camels Inability to score
tells tbs tale.
Montpelier's 'two lonely tallies
came In the first and ninth innings.
The first run of the game was chalk
ed up when Bronson got a walk, went
'to second on Jackson's sacrifice and
•cored on a wild heave to second to
catch him napping. In the ninth
frame Sharp rapped out another of
his famous two-baggers with no one
on bases, and scored when *Ace'
