Tigers vs. High School.
Last Sunday there was an in
tterting game of base hall played
c. at the local park, and quite a goodi
- crowd was out to wit.ness the galnme.
'the battle was between the Ab
beville high school and Billy's
Tigers, and after 'a hard str'ggile
on the part of both teams the
Tigers came out ahead, the core
, being 4 to 2 in their favor.
The battery was as follows:
Tigers, Gooch and O'Bryan; High
i1 School, Prejean and Lachausave.
. Struck out by Gooch, 10; Pre
Cubs 9, Kaplan 5.
Last Sunday the Abbeville Cubs
j.aurnyed over to Kaplan, where
they played an interesting game of
base ball, having the Kaplan team
as their oppolinents. While the
tgame was not such a'close one it
was very exciting, and the Cubs
were allwed to comhome home vic

9. Tomorrow the Tigers, the newly

Steax, from near Youngsville, and
a rattling good game is expected.
Onr June the first, so Billy says,
he is going to take his tigers to
Gutvdan to cross bats with the
caSy team of that little city.
Billyalsostated to one of our
reporte, that he has quite a good
buaach of tigers, and they are easily
m anaged, and are well trained, and
that is why he is not afraid to
leave home with them. In speaking
of "Billy" we don't mean Joe's

Supreme Court Opinion.
The following opinion was ren
dered the United States Supreme
Court, on bank overdrafts:
"A usage to allow customers to
overdraw and have their checks
and notes charged uip without
present funds in the bank, stripped
of all technical disguise, the usage
and practice, .thus attempted to be
sanctioned, is a usage and practice
to misapply the funds of the bank;
and to connive at the withdrawal
of same, without any secuirty, in
favor of certain privileged' per
sons. Such a usage and practice
is surely a manifest departure
from the duty, both of the directors
and cashier, as one cannot receive
aqy countenance in a court of jus
tice. It could not be supported by
any vote of the directors, however
formal; and therefore, whenever
done by cashier, is at his own
peril and upon the responsibility
of himself and his sureties. It is
anything but 'well and truly exe
cuting his duties as cashier.' "
