Oregon defeated Rockport here, June 23, in the second of a series by a score of 1 to 0. It was one of the best and fastest games played upon the local diamond for man' a day, no two teams being;as evenly matched before. It was a veritable pitchers' battle be tween Charlesworth, of Rockport, and Dodge, of Oregon, Charlesworth letting the locals down with a no-hit game, losing on account of costly er rors. On the other hand Dodge for the locals had excellent control and pitched winning ball throughout the game,- allowing but two scattered hits. The feature of the game were the lidding of Moore and Strickler for the locals and BiggerstatT, of Rockport, also Pa Swan's electryfing one hand catch of Charlesworth's hard hit in the sixth.

Umpire Boyd, of Forest City. St. Joseph Rainmakers Lose. Oregon defeated the fast "Weigles, of St. Joseph, at Forest City, Sunday, June 26, by a score of 5 to 3. It was a good game, considering the condi tion of the diamond, it being in no shape to play upon. The out field was ankle deep with mud and water, while the diamond was rough after a severe dragging. Errors and wild throws were frequent on the part of the St. Joseph team, while the locals put up a fair fielding game, but lacked their old-time pep and ginger. Hill and Dodge both pitched good ball, but errors behind Hill, coupled with timely hits, lost his game. The tabulated score: Weigles AB R uirow or juaxweirs to second was good and we should have had him. There being no tobacco signs in the park, Roberts planted the ball upon Manager Dickson's embankment near second base. We have heard of players not touch ing second base, but not touching home plate is the latest. Captain Zeller was missed at first; although Roberts put up an excellent game.

Oregon won from Grand Islands, of St. Joe, Saturday, June 25, by the ! one-sided score of 9 to 2. It was un- interesting from the start, the St. Joe boys being out-classed all 'round, , lacking team work and playing more like prep school boys than semi-professional players. The locals, on the other hand, put up a good game. The feature of the game was the pitching of Whirlwind Roberts, who struck out 15 men. It is impossible to give the tabulated score, as my assistants, B. Pierce and W. Maupin, were other wise engaged at critical stages of the game. With a little more training, however, they will be ready for league work. The score by innings: 3 ! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R II E 0 G. 1 0 002000002 2 8 0j Oregon 0 3 1 4 0 0 1 0 x 9 8 3 0 Batteries: G.I.
