Surely during the heated term at least, that pump should be kept in first class condition so that a large volume of water could and would be lifted to the surface where botn man and beast would gladly con sume it. As it is a disappointment and aggravation, tor one tramps there to slake ones thirst, to only find a working mill and empty water pipe. The Council ought to instruct some one to see that the mill and pump are kept in working order. Painting. Mrs. Mary L. Rouse is having ber residence painted. Jno. J.

Saturday afternoon before one 'if the largest crowds ever in at endence at a local ball game, ie Government Bands of this city defeated the Cherokee In-' diuns by a score of 4 to 1. The iadian team is a semiprofession il aggregation that has been 'leen touring the country for several years and as they are in one or two games nearly every day, of course they are in good playing trim. However, the Monroe boys bad no idea of being 6ca'ped and wben the game was called, every Monroe player intended to do bis best. The Indians went to bat first and with good luck and a couple of clean bits, managed to get a man across the pan, but this was the only one that was so lucky. Whitmore was in the box for the locals and showed the Indians that be knew some thing about speed and kinks himself, he making 14 of the noble red men saw the air. His support was gilt-edged there being only one error charged to the men bebiod him. Riley for the Indians was a clever pitcher and managed to fool 8 of the Monroe boys into reaching after his quick out. drops. Whitmore and Davis each got a three base bit and Jeffries and Hunolta twobaggei. Monroe's fielders all bad one chance which they accepted like old leaguers. Rouse's catch ot a high flly in the ninth inning ended the game and the Iudians folded their tents and withdrew telling of what they would do when night came. The night game was nearly as easy for Monroe, the feature of it being the base running of Hunolt and the home run of W. Miller. Monroe took this by a score of 8 to 6.
