SWEEPS AS IT CLEANS COMPANY !MCU 7QC lYY tlS- Xil RESTSa. CHURCH STEEPLE Fred Vermette Places Cross on Steeple of Church The tremendous task of replacing the gilded cross on the steeple of the church of L'otre Damea des Victoires is almost completed. Early in Aprii, the former cross fell to the ground in a big wind sforni after water had rotted its base and loosened it. In decision as to what the new cross should be made of caused so great a delay that it arrived here only last week. On Saturday, Steeplejack Fred Vermette ascended to the crest of the steeple, holding in ha hip the large cross and holding it away from the roof that it might not be scratched. It was pieviously taken to the Win dows of the belfry and put out through the north aperture. Today it rests high above the ground sup poi ted by a staging which has topped the steeple for several weeks in an ticipation of the job, and after some chipping and fitting has been done, it will be set firmly in place. It was at first palnned to make the cross of some heavier material which would necessitate a staging, and ac cordingly Vermette went to work about six weeks ago to set one up. La ter it was decided to make the cross of sheet copper, and even then , it was not made exactly according to the measurements prescribed, or it would have fitted exactly when taken up Saturdav. The new cross is 9 feet, three inches hijh and one third as wide. It weighs about 200 pounds. With the aid of two men and his daughter, Rose, who was pre vented from duplicatine her climb of .lune 12th to the verv top nnly bv the order of the priest, Vermette t k the cross in his laD and went , to the top on Saturday afternoon at about three o'clock. At the top he found the stagimr, put up in antici pation of a heavier cross, merely a hindrance, and it was with consider ai,iP difl'.cultv in a hard wind that he foro a large audience.

Another room in your house Uy usìng the famous NEWPORT LOSES TO ORLEANS WITH 3 TO 1 SCORE (iame With Few Errors and Good Ilitiingr on . Both Sides Getting trimmed by second string toair.a and easily defeating niiiny of the &tronger outfits has become more or lesa Of a habit with the Newport baseball team and following the gen eral rule, the boys from the border city allowed the Orleans Town team to take their measure by the score of 3 to 1 in a fairly interesting game of ball at Orleans on Saturday after noon. There was a small attendancs at the show, nearly forty per cent of the fans present hailing from New port. There is absolutely no excuse for the boys losing Saturday's matinee because the boys had several oppor tunities to put the score on the right side, but on practically every occa sion the necessary punch was lacking. In contrast the Orleans nlayers took r.JvanUige of the chances that pre-.-.(nted themselves and put the game on ice in the fourth inning with three big runs, scored on four . hita and two bases on balls. It must bet akcn into consideration, however, that The "breaks of the game were in favor of the Orleans aggregation and entircly against Newport. This is the second defeat Newport has suftered at the hands nf their close neighbors, but this beating was not nearly o bad as the one Orleans gave Newport here a few weeks ago for the reason. that Orleans had a much stronger team in action on Saturday than it had when appearing before the fans in Newport. The management put a ver" formidable team into action against our dimmed stars this tirile, but the fact remains it was anything but an Orleans out fit, only about one-third of the en tiro nine hailing from Barton Land ing. However, the fans have no kick here ,as it made a great deal more interesting game to watch than the awful ex.hibiflon given in Newport. Solon "Slim" Hill, who made such 3 fine showing on the mound for the ewport High school team during the eason recently closed, mode bis de but writh the older players in Satur tlay's game, starting in the box. ".Slim" was sailing along very smopth Tv until the fourth inning, when Beor, Orleans' heavy slugger touched him for the first hit of the game. The youngster immediately gave signs of weakening, but Captain Kenn;son made no move to yank him. Hardy followed Beor with another single to center. Bassett carnei through with a single- to right field and Beor tallied. Hill gol wild and walked Brennan, fìlling the bases. At this iuncture, Kennison pulled Hill out end went on the mound himself. He o.lso made other changes, nlacing Perley Hill, "Slim's" brother, on second and serding Rublee to short. Kennison was slow in wanning up so Clifford met one of his curves square Iv, sending it far into tight field, Hardy registering, the bases atrain being full. Matthcws fannod. Then "Shylocky either had difliculty in lo nating the piate or Umpire Swett was unable to judge his speedy ball, any way Griffin was given a base on balls for the second time and the third lun was foreed in, giving Orleans a pretty safe lead and taking consider ale "pep" out of the Newport play ers. Despité his inability to finish the job on Saturday, Hill is certain to irnve a valuable asset to the team, if "Shy" see fit to use him again. The boy is a sure corner and with more schooling can take his place alonside of the best of them in the twiiiing game. . It was quite evident that the erstwhile school pitched was more or less nervous playing with older men and in addition pitching bis initial game, but with ali this worn away, he will bo abto to go in to the box and win. Newport's only run carne in the third inning. J'Slim" Hill walked and was advanced to second on Mont gomery's hit to tight field. Lahar (Continued on page six) T he First National ( tution.
