Coberly Attends Lumber man Convention, A. C. Coberly, manager of the Logan-Moore Lumber Yard re turned the first of the week from a thrw days session of the South western Lumbermans Association at IIollister,Mo., and reports a most pleasant and profitable time. When not attending meetings of the association the delegates spent their time fishing in White river. Mr. Pittman, advertising and efficiency expert gave instruction in house planning and advertis ing service to customers. The subject of building conven ient, well lighted, heated and ven tilated school . houses was thor oughly discussed and Mr. Coberly lias plans of a school house that has been built in several Western States and has always given satis faction. The Logan-Moore Lum ber Company has. cuts and de scriptions of this building and will be glad to furnish them to any one interested in better rural schools. . Mr. Coberly says these meetings and the instructions given are. modeled after the short courses at the Missouri Agriculture School. Instead of farming they are in structed how best to serve the public as lumbermen. I WE LOST The Ft. Scott Team was the Best Madders. Only a small crowd of dyed-in-the-wool fans turned out Sunday to see Butler and Ft. Scott play base bal in the mud.- Those who did go were rewarded by seeing a sura chough ball game. Tito rain of the morning made the field rather muddy and a light rain fell during the game making fast base running and quick field ing impossible. Manager Ellis sprung a ny pitcher, Earl Orear, and he pitehed gilt edged ball and would have been returned a winner had it not been for some bad errors behind him in the fourth inning. With a little more experience Orear will make a cracker jack. Henry caught one of his best games and seems to be in for a good season this year. He is full of "pep" and is working all the time. There were three ex-leaguers in the Ft. Scott line up and the whole team were sure enough ball players. Bravis, the pitcher, being especially good. Manager Ellis informs us that he hopes to have them here again soon and all those who enjoy a good fast ball game should turn out to see them. The score by innings : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R. II. E.
