Boost the Ball Club. -
Brother DeGraffenreid, the secretary
and treasurer of the Union City Ball
Club, is putting forth a plea that would
draw tears from a stone for heartier
financial support of the local club.
Whether it will draw funds from the
closer of the town fans remains to be
seen. Most of the citizens have con
tributed without much begging on the
committee's part, Mr. Henderson and
Mr. Oliver, the druggists, being among
those ready contributors. Quite a few
of the business firms have contributed
twice. The gate receipts were very good
on the three days that Humboldt played
here. Their expenses were $GG, and it
took the three days to make the money
for them. Good players cost money,
And fans who are willing to leave their
business to enjoy a good game are sure
ly willing to contribute toward the sup
port of the club.

Ihe amazing spectacle or a young
ladv seated in the ancient manner of
sideways on a horse has excited some
wonder in the. town. The young lady
was dressed in a baggy voluminous con
cern known as a riding habit, faintly
suggesting, the aroma of moth bails and
the possibility of her legs getting tangled
up in the several yards of material.
She was more concerned with the man
agement of her steed than she was at the
excitement of the multitude whose ad
miration was possibly confined to those
members or fossils of an extinct era of
manners and deportment, determined
that any way but riding sideways on a
horse is a breach of etiquette in a lady.
All these old fogies and fossils have to
die soon, and some of them not ever
knowing that the style of riding side
ways for a lady was instituted by a
queen "with hip trouble who couldn't
ride any other way. No matter what
Confederate veterans may have as opin
ion on the subject! and doctors of phys
ical training may have against theses
critics, it remains an impressive fact
that the lady who was seen riding side
ways looked'funny. Thehealtby, grace
ful young damsels of New York, whoi
can bo seen by the hundreds in Central
Park, New York City, in the morning,
clad in their boyish breeches of kahki,
riding spirited mounts, would have
caught the sideways lady and put her
in a museum of antiques. It inspired
something like the following:
Ella thinks it perfect fruit is
To gallop on the gyascuties. (Clas
sical name for horse.)
Some brazen females ride astride
But Ella takes hers on the side.
Miss Rubye Mayes has returned from
Jlorganheld. Ky.. where sue was a

from home Miss Mayes was also a vis
itor in Evansville, Ind., being the guest
of Miss Margurite Klauss, who was the
handsome first bridesmaid at the Swig
gart-Mayes nuptials in June.
Miss' Willie Belle Mayes was the
hostess Saturday afternoon of the Mu
sical Matfhee Club. An interesting
Gounod program was given. A wel
comed addition to the club ranks was
the name of Mrs. Ed Long who has
been identified with the encouragement
of musical study in local circles for
quite a while. A program to fit in with
the study of the afternoon was given
finishing the study of the works of the
great French master of melody. An
ice course was served after the lesson
which had been led by the president,
Mrs. Jim Cunningham. The next
meeting of the club will be held at the
attractive home of Mrs. Bob White on
the 29th. The program at this meeting
