Hotly Contested Game with Herman
on Local Field Won by Score o
Three to Four.
Altho a game was played last Fri
day evening and another is to be
played next Monday evening, the
season really came to an end last
Thursday when Morris and Herman
crossed bats on the local diamond.
The game was one of the best of the
season, being close and exciting
from start to finish. Both sides
played a fast clean game, and the
article of ball seen by the many
Herman visitors who accompaied
their team, and the patriotic home
rooters who stand by the boys in gray
and red—win or lose, was as good »s
could be seen hn any diamond.
The game began with Herman at
bat. Moses, the first mau up, struck
out,Graham sent one ofBrown's twist
ers iuto deep right just inside the.
foul line for three baBes. Wells
struck out. Nelson sent a
popup into infield which no one
handled, and Graham scored
Dahlvean sent an easy one toSpooDer
Herman failed to score again until
the seventh.
The Morris boys made their first,
run in the third inning. Jones sent
a little popup to short. Danielson
made a hit. O'Malley got to first on
an error, Danielson going to second
Spooner struck out. Felix then came
to bat and sent a line drive over
first scoring Danielson. Boss knock
ed a grounder to short, and the side
went out.
Up to the sixth inning the score
stood one and one. In the sixth
Morris gained the lead. Clarke se
cured a free pass to first, stole
8econd,went to third and came home
on an error. The next three men
were easy outs
In the seventh Herman sent two
men across the plate and (hings look
ed a little gloomy in the Mo ris camp.
Bownwell went to first on an error,
stole seconJ, and came home on
Nelson's hit. Moses struck out.
Graham made a bit scoring T.Nelson,
A. Nelson struck out, end Thompson
sent a popup to first.
With the score 3 and 5 against
them, Morris went to bat. Felix
and Ross both went out. Clarke the
next man up knocked the ball and
went clear around the circuit and
scored on an error. By that time the
Morris crowd were slinging hats,
umbrellas and yelling with all their
might. Kisses were thrown at '.Burt
and of cource he smiled took it good
naturedly, Just to help things al ng
O'Brien, the next man up, sent a
single to center He stole second,
Brown was then at bat and he caught
one of Nelson's outdrops sending
the ball into right for two
bases, scoring O'Brien and winning
his own game. Jones flew to Nel
€on. Herman failed to score in the
half of the ninth, and so the game
stood 4 to 3 in favor of Morris.

Notes on the Game.
Jones made a sensational catch of
a long fly in the fourth inning. Pen
nock was at bat and he hit the ball
squarely on the nose sending it close
to the left field foul him. As soon
as the hit was made Jones started
for it. After a long run he reached
it and pulled it down amid the ap
plause of the spectators.
Spooner made a fine stop of Nel
son s hot one in fifth. Paul also han
dled four other changes.
Felix was right in the game as
usual. He made two hits out of four
times at bat, and took care of thirteen
men. His hit in the third scored Dao-|
ielson and gave us our first run.
O'Brien was the only other man to I
solve Nelson's peculiar delivery fori
more than one hit. He secured two I
bits ont of four times at bat.
Clark made two of the foui scores. I
His clever base running together
with some luck was responsible for it.
''Big" Graham carried off the bat
ting honors of the day. He secured
a three baggar and two singles out of
four times at hat.

The Glenwood Game.
The Morris team had an easy pick
ng with the Glenwood Kids Tues
day says the Glenwood Gopher and
carried the game away with (he score
14 to 3, which was vsry punk.
The Kids put up the poorest exhi
bition of baseball since the team
started making Glenwood famous
From the start of the game they
never had a look in and the score
fairly represented the strength of the
teams as it were. Several of the team
blew out fuses on er.sy chances early
in the game, badly discouraging Ed.
Abrahamson, the popular young
twirler. He held out for the nine
rounds, however, bnt was sadly out
of kilter when backed into the round
house at the close of the game His
arm has not been right since he
strained it, but he worked faithfully
to keep the score down. Only four
hits and nineteen errors tell the tail-
The scoring started in the first
round when F. Bigg made the circuit
on a base on balls assisted by two
costly errors. Morris did likewise.
Grlenwood could do nothing much un
til the sixth. McCauley's hit and
another error brought in another run
Morris scored in every inning except
the second. They connected for hf
teen hits including a triple and a
double. The score—
Glenwood 1000011003
Morris 103312121
Reports Exaggregated.
The Montevideo Commercial says
of the reported attempted lynching
near that place:—
The actions of a few irresponsible
parties in taking the law into their
own hands as they diu Sunday night
is strongly condemned by the law
abiding and responsible citizeus gen
erally. Not for love of the negro
but for the respect of law and order
Such actions only breed lawlessness
disorder and often costs innocent
It is plain to every one that if mob
violence is to be checked then Justice
must be meted out on shorter notice
than is usually the case. At least
this is generally the excuse used by
those conccrned and is the particular
argument in the case at hand While
at no time do we consider that th ire
was any danger of lynching in the
present case, there is a possibility of
a delay for months. Sooner or later
the state will be forced to take action
in this matter and there is no case
that demands more speedv action
than the present one. The 12th judi
cial district should set an example
and take the initiative in establishing
a new system. Instead of waiting
until the regular November term of
court a special grand jury should be
called and the prisonsr indicted,
tried, convicted and sentenced with
no delajr.

main line west and its Park Rapids

The Soo line has already made
surveys through the WhitQ Earth
reservation paralleling the line pro

Winnipeg. The course of the survey
is from Glenwood via Union Lake,
Alexandria and Miltona in Douglas

northwest to St. Vincent on the inter
national boundary.
St Paul-Winnipeg business is now
contro led by the Northern Pacific
and the Great Norhern, which have
the only line to the boundary with
direct Canadian lines to Winnipeg.
The Canadian Pacific has long watch
ed the growth of traffic on these line*,
and for four years has been working
at a plan, for a reasonably direct rout"
into St- Paul. This is to be afforded
by the
Soo line construction.
The government has given each
road equal rights to cross the White
Earth reserva'ion and permission to
construct parallel lines.
A statement secured from reliable
sources yesterday is as follows:
The Soo will have its line into St.
Vincent in operation within eighteen
months. Surveys are practically
completed and active construction is
soon to begin. A party of leading
offoials, including General Passenger
Agent Callaway, haye just returned
from a carriage trip over the survey,

an exceptionally rich one, and the
route one that is free from engineer

Slick Scheme Being Worked Among
farmers to Get Commissions
for Nothing.
A land company known as theSher
burn Land Co. of Sioux Rapids, la
has had agents thru this vicinity list
ing" lands which are for sale, and a
number have listed their lands with
this company. Upon investigation
these farmers have discovered that the
listing of lands is nothing more than a
graft and a good one at that. The
company has a neatly printed contract
which they ask the farmers to sign
and which a great many would sign
unless they read it over very carefully
It goes something like thia: "Gentle
men:—Please try to sell above des
cribed land for four months or until
this list is sooner terminated as here
in provided at $— per acre," Then
it goes on and says, and this is where
the graft comes ini When you sell
the land or otherwise perform your
part of the agreement I will pay you
$2 per acre commission." To bring
the contract down to a few words th
farmers signing it agrees to give the
company 32 per acre for simply no
thing. All the company agrees to
to do is to "try to sell" the land foi
that amount. R. T. Eastman, the
agent who listed a few farms in this
vicinity, explained the matter by say
ing that it meant asa e of the land or
no commission, but after the agree
ment was sent in to the head office it
meant just what it said. We were
shown a letter this week direct from
the head office *\hich states right out
that their part of the contract is ful
filled by merely ''trying to sell" the
land We therefore warn the farmers
to give these agents a wide berth,
turn the degs loese on them, when
hey step in your yard for their object
is to skin you as can be seen right on
the face of the contract. Their ex
planation has nothing to do with it
as the head office will hold you re
sponsible for the contract you signed
Patronize your homeland agents and
be on the safe side, for they live ri«?ht
and would not do any thing that
was not right.—Raymond News.
