WASHINGTON a Cbe Colvillc examiner OFFICIAL NEWS OF CITY AND COUNTY High class tailoring for men and women Dry cleaning, pressing, repairing, altering Golville, Stevens County, Washington, Saturday, July 8, 1922 The Baseball Season Ends for Colville Two decisive victories over Mar cus closed the scheduled season of the Colville ball club, Colville ammassing a total of 117 runs to their oponents 56 in the 12 scheduled games played. Of the 12 games played Colville only lost 2, making an average for the season of 833%. High batting average for the sea son goes to Hydom with an av erage of .471, he having been at bat 15 times, making 11 hits and 14 runs. Underwood was next with 43 limes at bat, 19 hits and 13 runs, his average being .444. Graham holds third place with 42 times at bat, 15 hits and 10 runs, making an average of .357. Others follow in close succession, all being well over .150. Two home runs were made by Colville during the season, Hydom and Exley each poleing one. The two games which Colville played this week were a fitting end to the season, the boys showing up well in both. Sunday they met the Marcus team at Marcus, where they defeated them with a score of 12 to 7. Hydorn was in the box, and he pitched a good game with good sup port from the field. The game with Marcus the fourth proved to be good the first four innings, the score remaining nearly tied, and although Colville was going good it was nobody's game until the fifth inning. Graham made four hits and four runs the first four times up. Moss secured four strikeouts in the fifth inning. After the fourth inning Colville had a walkaway and al though the game was stopped at the end of the sixth inning because it was growing so late, the victory was decisively in Colville's favor. Underwood and the man who was catching for Marcus collided as Un derwood was coming home. Although this closes the season for Colville as originally scheduled, the Colville team will probably play some games with Canadian teams in the near future. At any rate the season has certainly been a success ful one for Colville.

The Examiner is your home paper. <\n Exponent for Stevens County $2.00 Year in Advance; 5c Copy Fourth of July Fire Damages Hobbs' Residence Fire completely destroyed the up stairs of the residence of E. F. Hobbs on East Reach Tuesday, July 4. The Hobbs family had just gone to her grandmother's place about a block and a half away. A few minutes before leaving Mr. Hobbs had made a fire in the kitchen stove. After talking a few minutes with his mother, Mr. Hobbs stepped out in the yard and saw smoke issuing from the roof of his house. His brother J. B. Hobbs of Mabton, who was visiting at the Hobbs house also ran to the scone of the Are and climbed into the attic, where he says he could have put out the fire had he had water; but by the time he was able to get water the fire had spread so it was impossible for him to do anything with it. The fire department made a quick run to the fire and saved the lower floor, but because of lack of pressure, could but hold the fire in check. Mr. Hobbs especially compliments them on their work. Nearly all the furniture was saved and the down stairs was little damaged except from the water, but the roof and upstairs were badly damaged. The fire started near the chim ney over the kitchen stove in the northern part of the house, and was spread full length of'the house by a north wind. The loss was partially covered by insurance. This is the 1 second fire Mr. Hobbs has had in a little over a year. A year ago last winter his garage and twp trucks burned. The family was planning to go to Marcus Wednesday to celebrate the 2Blh wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Hobbs and Mr. Hobbs had built the fire so that Mrs. Hobbs could do more baking preparatory to going.
