Quite a number from here were at Bonne Terre Sunday afternoon to wit ness the game between Bonne Terre and Fredericktown. It was as pretty a game as any one would want to see up to the 8th inning, when one of the umpires gave a decision on a very close play at the home plate. And it looked lor a wmle as though it would be a free for all fight, which broke up the game, with the score standing 3 to 1 in favor of Fredericktown. We think that it is fine sport to watch a good game of ball when players and fans conduct themselves in a gentle manly way; but when it comes to pull ing oft such stuff as was pulled off Sunday, it will kill the game for all respectable people. Mistakes are made by professional umpires in the big leagues, and arnateur umpires will make mistakes quite often. So the players, as well as the fans, should ac cept the decisions of the umpires or quit going to the game. It is a very ungracious thing to umpire a game and to be bullyragged by the players as well as by the, fans. The following prizes were won by the pupils of the Leadwood school at the Str.te Fair this month: First prize en book cover designs by the seventh and eighth grades; second prize on es says, by grades five, six, seven and eight; third prize on each of the fol lowing posters: Maps, by the sixth grade, brush work, "How We Travel" by grades five and six; paper cutting, by the primary grades. Crayon sketches, by the eighth grade. Total money received in prizes. $17. This is an enviable record for our school, and the teachers and pupils alike deserve a great deal of credit. The school won $14 in prizes last year at the State Fair. You can count on Leadwood school always being in the front rank, in all of her undertakings. ! School will open September 6th, and with the old building overhauled, and put in first class condition and the new high school building practically in a state of readiness for the opening day. and besides a good faculty all ready for work, with a most excellent school spirit among the patrons, Leadwood should this year surpass any of her past records, although her records have been good for several years past. A long pull, and a strong pull, and all pull together, will give us a school equal to the best in the state.
