A schedule calling for sixty games has just been announced, each team being scheduled, to play twenty games each. , There are only three teams in the league this season, it having h.'cn necessary to cut the team.1) down on account of the scarcity of players, and too, with the view of mainlaining the hir;he?t standard of playing. Prtsidmt Kuykendall is very op timiflic over the prospect for t'.ic season and believes that with the three teams the fans will be well pleased and that the best class of ball ever seen in the city league will be maintained. Under the three-team plan each team will play three games every two weeks. This will have the tendency of keeping the players in trim, amd will shift the playing so that all teanu will play on both of the playing days.

We are proud to Kay that "Our" city is fast becoming one large trad ing center for fifty miles around. We were informed a few days ago ', by" two popular citizens of Mon roe county and one of them lived in Aberdeen, that goods of all kinds are cheaper in Columbus than in Aderdeen. They stated that oats were $3.25 in Aberdeen and $2.90 in Columbus on the same day . They also stated that our business men were simply the finest bunch of jolly good fel lows that they ever met and that alone goes a long way in helping to build us a great city and a united community. The mer chants and business men of Co lumbus are beginning to realize and appreciate more and more the advertising value of the Dis patch as it covers the entire coun try. Its readers are found in the four corners of the earth and goods bought in our beautiful city can be found in homes over a hundred miles away. Be a booster, join the Lowndes county boosting club.
