The team was not a fizzle though and played a clean gentlemanly game throughout with none of the usual kicking common to a match game. Take the game as a whole it was a pretty contest and one that kept up the interest of the spec tators to the top notch of excitement. Gorton for the visitors stepped up to the plate and looked at three of Bliss's twisters and sat down. Fife stuck his foot in the way of a hot one and limped to first. Fox struck out. Capt. Marx got his eye on the ball and lined out a two bagger, while Fife was thrown out at home on some fast fielding of Marx's hit.

The fifth saw no change for the visitors who sent only three men to the plate. Wingo for Twin Falls pounded out a scant two bagger but managed to make the circuit while Soda Springs was throwing the ball away. The sixth was but a repetition of the previous inning. Soda Springs failed to get a man to first while Twin Falls scored again on the gen erous inclination of the visitors. Af ter the errors were all down the score sheet looked like a section of a Chin ese newspaper. The seventh was livened up by the three bagger of Marx, making his third hit for the game but his compatriots failed to back him up and Bliss never ► .he i ROAD A HOLE IN r Means danger to some one and expense to taxpayers for damages.

Few if any of the visitors on the Fourth left town feeling that they had not received their money's worth in pure unadulterated good time. The parade in the morning while not as long as it might have been, had a unique feature in the automobiles in line. The base ball game certainly could not help pleasing everyone who at tended and presented one of the best features of the day, and best of all the victory came to the home city thus pleasing every person on the tract. The races immediately after the ball game kept the crowd amused and e.ntertained until late in the afternoon when the horse races drew the lovers of horses to the race tract. The races were of the snappy kind and left no impression of jobbing. The bowery dance, too, drew its quota of devotees anti the dance ended only when the musicians were too tired to pay longer. The fireworks owing ta the change of location were missed by a large number of people, but those who were present at the ball grounds witnessed a very pleasing display.

A SANE FOURTH The People of Rock Creek have n Good Time on Fourth. Rock Creek, July 7, 1908 Mr. Frank Bower showed his pat riotism last Saturday by erecting sev eral large and beautiful American flags around his ranch. L. H. Norton is having a new ditch put in on his lower McMullin creek ranch, which will be completed in about two tfeeks. On Thursday evening the 2nd, Mrs. C. B. Roberts In attempting to get over a rabbit proof fence, fell and dis located her left knee, for her Mr. Roberts happened to be in the near vicinity and on hearing her cries for help, immediately came tf .» „ Mr. Ko£ 0 r„ p S1" ! n joint back in place, and at present Mrs. Roberts is doing nicely. Mr. J. LaSalle expects to leave some time during the week for the Three Creek country, after a bunch of horses belonging to him which have been roaming at large for some time. He expects to be gone about a month, We hope he succeeds in rounding up all of them. Miss Fannie Tobs of Twin Falls is spending her time with Mrs. LaSalle at present, expecting to stay while Mr. LaSalle is after his horses, in order to keep the Mrs. company. Mr. D. S. Morgan reports that there will be an Unusually heavy crop this season, due to the fact that most of the ranchers that have had their land cleared for several seasons have the land in better shape for irriga tion, and will continue to improve same from time to time. Keep at it boys and make southern Idaho one of the. greatest producers of the world, and you will all become independent in a short while at that rate. Mr. James Budd and relatives spent a sane Fourth of July by having a little family reunion. Those present consisted of Mr. and Mrs. D. S. Morgan and family, Mr. H. A. Bohem and family, D. S. Morgan is the father of Mrs. Budd and Mrs Bohem. Herbert Andrews paid Twin Falls a visit over Saturday and Sunday' incidentally he rode Cheyenne, Mr. LaSalle's beautiful buckskin broncho. Same creature that Mr. Williams rode to Kimberly last week. Mr. Andrews claims that Cheyenne did not throw him, but he has a queer walk after the ride for an old crw puncher when he pulled into the corral. These bronchos are all together different from mules in Missouri. Mr. and Mrs. J. LaSalle spent the Fourth in Twin Falls. We hope they had a good time, and enjoyed them selves immensely. Mr. Fred Topel reports that he has a consignment of household goods and farm implements on the way from Chicago for his ranch. 'Send the whole family Mr. Topel and be a good booster. The dance at Rock Creek hall was a grand success, every one having a fine time. Did not close down until af ter the schedule time by about two hours and several mentioned that it was the finest dance of th season. In order to spend a sane Fourth of July people should have visjted Rock creek on that day. There was not a single accident, while there were plenty of fireworks let go. The old fashioned picnic at Jones grove was also a grand success about 75 old settlers sat döwn to a table groaning under the weight of its con tents. We hope the old settlers will be able to attend a good many more picnics of this nature. Judge Hansen's peach trees are so loaded down with fruit that some of the branches are already resting on the ground, what will become of them later on, when the fruit becomes heavier. Mrs. Nixon and son have gone to Oakley for a few days.
