WAS BEST EVER SEEN HERE LEAGUE BALL GAM E YESTER- DA DELIGHTED HEARTS OF BEMIDJI FANS. THE ATTENDANCE NEARLY REACHED 2,000. Duluth Won From Crookston by a Score of 3 to 2An Exciting Game. In the best game of ball ever played in Bemidji, Duluth won from Crookston yesterday by a score of 3 "to 2. It was a fast ex hibition and was witnessed by a crowd of nearly 2,000 people. The grounds were in fine con dition, and were as good as any team could ask, aside from the fact that the outfied had not been cleared out as far as is usually in city grounds. This did not in terfere with the playing, how ever, and few balls got hit across the leveled outfield. None of them found the timber. Crooks ton got her two scores on an error on the part of Duluth in the seventh inning. Lyons, on second base, made a wild throw to home plate letting in two runs. The players were all in good form and did excellent work. Duluth squeezed in four errors, however, and Crookston fell only one short of that number. Gehr Tng, Duluth's pitcher, had a good delivery, and there.were no criti cisms offered on the work of Freeman, the man who twirled the ball for Crooksion. Gerard caught for Duluth. This was his third game of the season, and he was merely picked up as a sort of scr ub to take the place of Cline, the regular man, who had split his hand in making a catch the day before. The new catcher by his brilliant work at the .bat surprised not only the spectators but his brother play ers as well. He made the best batting record of anyone in the and got to third on one of his big hits. He got to first every time he stepped up to bat. His work behind the bat was good, but showed a lack of prac tice. Following is the line up of the two teams: Crookston: Quigley, third base Beyette, second base Burns, center field Cameron, first base Higgins, left field Hutter, right field White, short stop Howard, catcher Freeman, Pitcher. Duluth: Quillen, third base Lyons, second base Kennially, first base Lambert, center field Shepard, short stop McCoy, right field Harris, left field Gehring, pitcher Gerard,catcher.

NOTES ON THE GAME. In spite of the great size of the crowd it was a very orderly one. There were no disturbances of any kind. The rooting was not so loud as it would have been if a home team had been in the con test, but was of a very nealthy nature. Betting was not heavy, but a number of small bets were placed. Crookston seemed to be the favorite with those sportively inclined, but A the backers of Du luth won oul^ The diamond was rather dusty but was level as a floor. The ballplayers expressed themselves as being well pleased with it. They were delighted at the size of the crowd. The grand stand is a large" one, but was not big enough to accomo date all who tried to secure seats. It is as big as is usual in such cases, however, and will answer all ordinary purposes. The bleachers were not up. "When they are constructed they will afford seating space to hundreds and will relieve the grand stand. A SUGGESTION L. H. Bailey Offers a Solu tion of the Band Sup port Question. Attorney L. H. Bailey has offered a new and novel sugges tion which, if acted upon, will make the Bemidji band self sup porting. His plan is to allow the organization the exclusive privil ege of selling refreshments in the new ball grounds, at the ball games, fairs, or anything else along these lines which may be held there, in exchange for their servk-cs. whenever needed.. I is thought that this project if rightly managed would afford ample compensation to the boys for their work. It would do away with all bother now attend ant upon getting the band out, and would result in a harmonious adjustment of the money ques tion. Both the band and the fife and drum corps turned out yester day. The drum corps appeared early in the morning and played until along in the afternoon, marching through the streets of the town and down to the dock where several selections were rendered. 3,000 PEOPLE The Excursions Into Bemidji Yesterday Brought More Than That Number. The three excursions into the ^cjjt^-yesterday were even more successful than had been pre dicted) Over 3,000 visitors were brought to Bemidji on them and the town presented a busy ap pearance through the clay. The special from Blackduck, with four cars, was first to ar rive. It got here about 10 a. m., and had 250 people on board. The specials from Melrose and Grand Forks, each with thirteen full coaches, arrived at 11:30 and 11:50 a. m. Every seat was tilled and people were standing in the aisles. The train from the west had to stop taking on passengers long before it reached Bemidji, and a large number of excursion ists were forced to come on the regular at 12:40. Aside from the regular excursion train from the south a good many people came on the regular from Duluth, get ting here at 3:20 in the after noon. A large proportion of the ex cursionists attended the ball game, but many of them were content with boating on the lake and walking along its shores. The two big excursion trains left on the return trip at 7:30 in the evening. The Blackduck train was later in starting.

Authorities were notified an i Coroner Henderson, arriving at the scene of the accident and finding an inquest unnecessary, ordered the body taken to Na.y lor's undertaking rooms.

Scott, the jeweler, Miles block. Jay Reynolds Attorney-at-Law. PhotographerReedand Harry Bliler Engage in Excit ing Hunt. R. W. Reed and Harry Bliler were mixed up in a bear killing yesterday. In company with Ed Kerr, a settler living a few miles west of town, they tracked a two-year-old black bear into a swamp and killed him with a club. Kerr had a gun along, a combination rifle and shotgun, but it was not used for fear the hide would be spoiled. Some'tiimrago Mr. Kerr, told Mr. Bliler "and Mr. Keed that of his place. He said that when he got it located he would let them know. Yesterday morning they received a message from him stating that lie knew where to find bruin, and the loeal hunt ers immediately set about mak ing preparations for the hunt. Mr. Heed took his camera along and they caught the 3:20 train west. They were met at Solway by Mr. KerV, and he conducted them into the woods between Wilton and Solway, a considerable distance from the track and about ten miles from Bemidji. The track of the bear was found on the edge of a swamp. A half mile of walking along his trail in the damp ground brought them to the animal. The bear started to run but was soon overtaken and sur rounded. Several-good negatives were made of him by the pho tographer, and then Mr. Kerr approached bruin and dispatched him with a few well directed blows of a stout club, finishing the work by running his kuil'o in the bear's shoulder. Excitement for a brief period was intense, and all concerned indulged in rapid actions to escape the animal's claws. It was dark be fore the party got out of the woods. The bear's head is to be mounted. The hide at this sea son is of little volue. WANTKI) Experienced girl for gerieral housework.
