The game was characterized chiefly by its errors. Although Browne held the visitors down to two hits, yet, with his three wild throws and wild pitch, Zacha's three errors on third and "Possum Bill" Taff's error on first, the visit- j ors were able to cross three men over 'home plate and defeat the locals, ilt seemed to be an off day for both j Browne and Zacha, who did not play J up to their standard at all. Bone- headed playing on the part of the Brownies also helped to lose the game. Canine, tue slab artist for the visitors, held the locals down to five scattering hits, although he was rather liberal in issuing passes, handing out four during the game. He was the only ivingsville player, however, who had a hit chalked up to his credit, he making two. Krinsr. at centerfield for the j visitors, played a good game, but was weak with the stick. The Brownies have to admit that Kingsville has a Igood ball team, however. The Kings jTille boys are swift runners and every man on the team is a ball player. The Brownies made one run In the first inning and another in the 6th. while the visitors made two m the 6th the inning of bum playing on the Brownies part and one in the 10th. In the absence of Cobolini, "Possum Bill" Taff held down first base. The score: BROWNSV'E A.B R. H. P.O. A. E.

One of Most Successful and Enjoyal)lc Features of the Three Days' Celebration. The first of the three days celebra tion was brought to a close by the ball held last evening at the hospi tal building in Fort Brown. Thither in the moonlit evening trooped the fair maids and matrons and gallant cavaliers of Brownsville, reinforced by many guests from neighboring towns. In addition to the dancers were many more who went but to look on. These thronged the wide porches of the building and overflowed on the lawn. So great" was the crowd in the hall, that. in. the beginning dancing was almost im possible, while so many were packed around the entrance at times that it was aimcuit to enter or pave the . - vuu room. On the outside, the scene was in teresting the porches crowded with people close packed around the long low windows, sitting, or standing on the tables that had been used at the barbecue at noon; out in front, the blaze and smoke from the long pit over which even then the meat was cooking for today's feast; while be tween and beyond, wandering over the old parade ground so full of memories of the dead past, wer& the figures of maids and men, thinking not of the brave old days of Fort Brown, but rather with minds and hearts, intent upon the pleasure of the moment. Over all shone the wondrous tropic 'moon, pouring its silvery light into every nook an dcorner, throwing over the scene the glamor and romance of a night out of fairy-land. The music by the Regiment band from Matamoros stationed in the South veranda vjas inspiring and dance-compelling. Promptly; at nine o'clock at the wave of the' leader's baton the band crashed out the open ing bars of the 23 rd Regiment CONWAY & HOIT Mission. Hidalgo Cnnntv. Texas ci Kga.flfg """'iiriPf.

The little Catholic chapel at Po'ut Isabel was almost wrecked, one side being torn out entirely. All win dows smashed the front door blown down and everything inside tnor oughly watersoaked. Another build ing that suffered badly at the Point was the old Forto house, which was almost torn from its foundations while a little outhouse that stood alongside and was used for a kitchen is now a mass of kindling wood. At Donna several buildings wereJ damaged, and a box car was blown off the. track. Several ca'-s were also dcraUedat other poii-.ts. The rainfall averaged, from four to eight inches throughout the valley. Only a few of the outlying ranches have been heard from, but on many of these doubtless oirns, and other outhouses, etc, have suffered. Maay windmills were laid iow by the wind. At Santa Anita Ranch In Hidalgo county, six windmills were blown down while in the neighboring Mes enas ranch belonging to Judge Bor den, eleven measured their length upon the ground. ' BROWNSVILLE AVAS GREATLY DISAPPOINTED By Failure of Senators Bailey and! Culberson and Gov. Campbell to Attend Celebration. To the great disappointment of the people of Brownsville and the valley Senator Jos. W. Bailey, Senator Chas. Culberson and Governor Tom Camp bell, who were slated to make ad .dresses here during the celebration,, were' unable to. To a Herald repre sentative this morning, Capt, Geo. J. Head who had charge of this matter and who made the arrangements for these distinguished Texans to be present, stated that Senators Culber son and Bailey notified him that ay were unable to attend on &ctGtn& of congress being in- session. When they had accepted the invitation to, be here they thought that congress, would adjourn before this time. As. to Governor Campbell, Capt. Head states that he is at a loss to under stand why he did not come, as he saw the Governor personally and Gov ernor Campbell had accepted the in vitation and assured him that he would be here. A few days ago, Capt. Head say3, he wrote to Governor Campbell, asking him on which day he would be here, but he has not as. iyet received a reply to his letter or other word from the governor ex plaining his failure to come. Capt. Head regrets very much that the peo ple were disappointed in. not getting; to hear these gentlemen speak. SALE OF BEL MONTE. TRACT NEAR MISSION Sold By J.cl -tlbnte Irrigation Com pany to J. W.
