another beauty is sent to replace
her on the diamond. They have
played with and defeated some of
the best teams in lowa and Nebras

lippines.
Wants the Earth.
Through the postoffice last
Thursday morning we received a
communication marked “copy of
a letter to Charles Wonderly.”
The letter, verbatim et literatum,
et punctuatum, is herewith repro
duced, as follows:
“You must think the la junta
people are a gang of suckers i
have a season ticket to all games
played by tbe Ball team of La
Junta remember if my season
j ticket is refused it is a signal you
want no more monthly money and
don't come for any."
Then follows a clipping from
the Daily Democrat which reads
as follows:
“No season tickets will be hon
ored at the Bloomer Girl ball
'game next Monday, the 17th
Tickets to this game will be fifty
cents."
••No ticket! No money!"
We don't know who the writer
is, neither does Mr. Wonderly.
He forgot to sign his name to
either the original or the copy,
and of course his kick is of no
avail. Mr. Wonderly would
' probably gladly present him with
la complimentary if his identity
j was known, or Thu Tribunk
I might even condescend to part
with one i* we knew who the
! writer was. The baseball asso
ciation did not engage this aggre
gation of feminine baseball talent
for the purpose of making money,
but simply to afford the people of
La Junta a little amusement. The
manager of the visiting team
wanted the earth and the fullness
thereof to come here at all. An
arrangement was finally made on
the percentage basis, and the vis
iting team will get the major por
tion of the receipts. La Junta’s
portion being probably sufficient
to pay tbe small boy for carrying
water. There wall be] a game
Sanday and there is really 00
compulsion about attending the
Btooaser game unless you want
to. Tbe game might not be
worth tbe mosey, aad then tkiab
of tbe paia and misery that tbe
gallibfe pablic would have to en
dure.
A Wore of Explanation.
Once upon a time a predecessor
of the present proprietor of the
Tribune attempted to get out a
mammoth edition of the Tribune,
and several dollars were collected
in advauce. The edition never ma
terialized. We wish it distinctly
understood that no money is to he
collected in advance upon our con
templated edition, and that we wjll
not be responsible for any indebt
edness incurred without a written
order signed by the proprietor.
Shapely Girls In Bloomers Tight.
One of the most exciting and
interesting games of the season
will take place in this city on Mon
day, August 17th, between the
Ladies' Champion Base Ball Club
of Boston, Mass., and the La Jun
ta Athletics.
The Boston Bloomers is the usu
al title given this famous Ladies’
Base Ball Club. They are justly
entitled to the same, as they al
ways appear upon the field, to bat
tle for supremacy, dressed in the
twentieth century garb-the bloom
trs. This organization of female
hall players is the only ladies' ball
club in America. The team was
first organized in 1893. This is
their tenth annual tour. The club
is under the management of Mr.
W. F. Needham, and they travel
in their own palace car.
During the past nine years this
organization of female hall players
has traveled extensively and visit
ed all the large cities in America
and both provinces of Cana Ja. The
club has been strengthened from
year to year, each member selected
for her ability to execute and fill
her particular position in a man
ner satisfactorily and becoming a
member of this, the Champion La
dies’ Base Ball Club of the World.

Henry Lee's little daughter fell

The indications are th«t canta
loupe shipments will be very late
this season, and probably not be in
progress in carload lots much be
fore the first week in September.
No shipments have as yet been
made.
Wednesday was tramp day. In
these times of great scarcity of la
hor any able bodied man ought to
earn Ins living by producing some
l thing. Dirt and laziness are not
! deserving of charity. There is much
oftencr danger of encouraging sloth
than turning away merited aid.
Frank Herrington is back again
; from a prospecting trip in the
! northwest. He had made every ar
rangement (o find a location and
send back for his family. But he
returned well pleased to get hack
to a more desirable country. Mere
restlessness is responsible for a
great part of the constant change
in the western country. The Ar
kansas Valley is beyond the eaper
imental stage. Those pleasant!*
and profitably settled had better
remain instead of always trying to
get "in on the ground floor” so7 *
where else. Countries that have to
be boomed may need inspection,
as a good thing speaks for itself
Bat this isn’t saying the north west
isn’t a wonderful country. The
ever moving "Prairie Schooners
face e_ch other. Practically as.
equal number go each way. Tbe
gradual shifting of the center of
population west, and the occasion
al marvelous influx of great num
bers into newly opened territory
are not so noticeable. It is the
going back and forth that keeps
things stirred up and uses up use
less energy, better take note and
stay somewhere some considerable
lengtli of time.
