RIVESVILLE, July 31.?Sunday was
a busy day down here. Baseball to
further orders. Rivesville vs. Barnsvllle,
or some at least were from
Barnsvllle, but the principal players
or contenders rather were not natives
or residents of the little newly Incorporated
town, but that was all right,
no klok coming as to that, nor none
whatever, as far as the writer Is concerned
as he Isn't a ball player, but
rumor has It that the umpire of one J
olg fellow who said the oUts and Ins i
and seemed to be the push and pull J
for Barnsvllle altogether, might have
had more warm friends down here If
he hadn't shown his warm feelings
for the Barn.vltes quite so plain, but
till Is well that ends well.
Rivesvllie will be mindful of several
occurrences in the future which
took place at the game Sunday and
would much rather be the victims of
a wrong or an overdose of authority,
than a defeat so, so, so, and bo long'
as to that a hint to the wise should
be sufficient. *

ed the game. Even big Mas Chlpps, j
