have been posted around town. This

precinct, and the place named is the
office of Justioe Russell, located on

F. D. Winn and family were most
pleasantly surprised yesterday morn
ing when a number of their Newton,
la., friends dropped in on them, and
spent the day. The party was com
posed of Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Ogg and
family, Mr. and Mrs. Will Gifford and
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gifford. The
guests and the people of the city who
hail from Newton gathered round the
dinner table and swapped stories of
the east for news of the west, and a
pleasant day was spent.
E. G. Cross had a narrow escape
form being seriously injured yes ter
day afternoon. While working in
the garret of his unfinished house, a
board gave way, and he fell to the
second floor, landing on his neck and
shoulders. Fate did not think he
had fallen far enough, and gave him
a push towards the first floor, and he
only succeeded in saving himself
from falling to this floor, by catch
ing the rounds of the laddeer as he
went. down. He is confined to his
bed, but will be out in a few days.
The Lutheran College Concert
band entertained a well filled house
at the Auditorium last evening in a
most creditable manner. Those who
attended were treated to the best mus
ic that the people of Coeur d'Alene
have had an opportunity to hear in
some time. The following program
is a collection from their large reper
torie: Fanfrae, Rondo Mitiaire, by
Bohme; Peer Gyntt Suie, by Grieg;
Wedding of the Winds, by J. T.
Hall; Zampa, overture, Heroid; In
the Viking's Domain, Max von Lenz;
Cavalry Charge, Luders; American
Republic March, Thiele; and Olym
pia Hippodrome, Alexander. The
rendition of the Cavalry Charge de
serves especial comment as its execu
tion was such that it would cause
Sousa to look around to see whether
or not it was his or the other band
playing. The bnad is by far the best
aggregation of musicians that ever
appeared heie and the director, Prof.
Sperati is a pastmaster in the art.
The band responded to a number of
DEFEATED LOCAL TEAM

The Northern Paciflo aggregation
of Spokane defeated the local team
yesterday, in one of the neatest
games of the season, by a score of 1
to 0. Both teams were evenly match
ed and the pitchers more evenly
matched than the remainder of the
teams; Plummer twirling for the lo
cals, and Parks for the N. P's, in a
It was an error of Middleton in the
third inning that marred the game
that might have been stretched out
over the nine innings, and allowed
the visitor to bring in one score.
The hitting was not heavy.
Donahue, who did the umpiring, was
on the bumps, and he gave an exhibi
tion of an old maid's work in that
line. Treager played his usual cool
game, and played with the visitors
whenever he got a grounder.

One can say that hundreds of thou
sands of dollars are expended annual
ly for baseball games and convey In
a vague way what baseball expendi
Presuming that 25,000,000 spectators
witnessed baseball games In 1905,
which Is the estimate of one well
known authority, it la fair to say that
at least half of the 25,000,000 paid ad
mission to the games. Suppose that
each of this 12,600.000 paid 25 cents to
witness his favorite sport. That would
make a gross total of $3,125,000 at the
gate In one season. That begins to
sound more like figures.
Now add to that the car fare which
was expended by each spectator where
die games were played In large cities
and the amount which was handed out
to the peanut boy and the lemonade
peddler, and an Idea begins to form
that baseball receipts accumulate quite
a total even If It ts the cheapest and
most popular form of outdoor sport
Nor Is what the spectator pays to
witness the games all that Is expended
during the year. Great factories work
day and night to make bgseballs, and
men have acquired fortunes In placing
their wares before the public. Hun
dreds of tailors are employed In mak
ing baseball uniforms, aud scores of
turners gain a livelihood turning out
baseball bats, while the forests of the
middle west have been ransacked to
obtain the best timber to provide the
players with sticks to suit them.
Put a million dollars more on top of
the amount paid to see games and the
mark has Jumped over $4,000,000.

[Boy A. Hartsell, the clever young third
baseman of the St. Louis American
league club, is a native of St. Louis,
where he was born July «, 1881. He
started his professional career as a
pitcher with the Logan club of the Utah
league In 091 He began the season of
U03 as outfielder and later as third
baseman of the Peoria club and finished
the season with the Denver club of the
Western league. Last year he was con
sidered the star Inllelder of the Western
league and attracted national attention
After lively bidding by several major
league clubs the St. Louis club last fall
succeeded In purchasing Hartsell's re
lease for 12 . 500 .)
Even that doesn't tell the story. Clubs
expend large sums In travel. The rail
roads and the hotels are benefited.

The fact Is that baseball costa the
people of the United States more than
$5,000,000 annually, and the bill la
growing heavier every year, but so
small Is the per capita expenditure and
so great the enjoyment which is de
rived from the game that it Is con
tributed with less complaint and mors
open indication of real satisfaction
than any "indirect tax" which is levied
upon the community at large In behalf
of a good time.
