Fitzgerald vs. T. S. Boys The Return
The largest crowd that was ever
upon the Training School grounds
at one time assembled there last
Friday evening to witness the re
turn game between the T. S. boys
and Fitzgerald. Many of the prin
cipal business men of the town were
out, and the seats which lined the
school grounds were packed to their
fullest extent. Even after the game
had begun people continurd to flock
in at the gates, and the crowd al
rtifcly inside gained in bulk. Every
body was enthusiastic. Some car
ried megaphonfiffor the purpose of
cheering on to victory their favored
side and others sported gorgeous
school colors which waved and float
ed in the sunlight joyously.
About 4 o'clock the umpire called
out to "Play ball," and after a time
the great game began. The first
few innings that the T. S. boys were
at the bat they ran in four or five
scores, but when they had lite field
they played bum. The fumbles that
each made seemed to be contagious,
and it wasn't long before the dis
ease had spread. The rest of their
playing was a succession of errors.
Fitzgerald soon had the home
team outstripped and was running
in score after score. Their dexter
ous playing won great applause
both in the field and at the bat.
The game came to an end 7 to 17 in
favor of the boys from Trenton.
The T. S. boys have never before
given such an exhibition of bad
work as they gave Friday. Prac
tice 6eems to have grown foreign
to them. Indeed it can well be said
that the main feature of the "whole
game that evening was the grand
lack of practice which the T. S. boys
showed. It is to be hoped that the
boys will realize the necessity in
the future of putting forth .some
effort, in order to Win a game at
anything. ,-

Passed by Negro on Number of
Merchants at Fulton.
Fulton, Ky., April 27. Saturday
night a number of business men
here were victimized by cashing
forged checks for a strange negro.
The checks were drawn on the City
National Bank, of this city, and in
favor of Frank Brown and Eugene
Bell, with the name of Will Hill, a
prominent contractor of this city,
signed to them. The forgery was
not discovered until Monday, when
the various merchants who had
taken the checks, went to the bank
to deposit tbem. No trace of him
has been obtained.
Mr. Mack Thompson, of near
Hornbeak, purchased of Beckham
& Mayes the past week an up-to-date
Delker Bike Buggv and. set of
Harness. He made $5.00 by coming
to Union City and left us some cash.

sumotion at the home t
in Union City on Friday'jTA'pril 24.
The young man was born Jsept.
8, 1885. Those whoi knew speak of
him as a good an obedient son.
He bore his afflictions with forti
tude, never complaining of his mis
ery. His great desire was to get
well and show others how easy it
was to serve the Lord, to be good
and do good. His last hours were
full of this testimony. Dear readers,
let us all try to live a better life
than we have and may God bless
you all.
A Friend.
