' With two men clown in the opening Inning of the final game of the series be tween. Charles H. Dudley's Hanover In dependents and the Bitrre Athletic club, the collegians got to Davidson and pounded out three hits, aided by a base on balls, which resulted in their two tallies in a D to 2 defeat. Davidson then struck his gait and mowed his opponents down in a manner that pleased over four hundred admirers tf the Barre team. He had the visitors guessing the remain der of the game ,as they hit four balls throw, out of the infield, two of which were Tjle' clean base hits. Weare. who held the local team to a ix-inning tie in the afternoon game Me morial day, was sent to the firing line bv the sporting goods man. He was not so effective as he was on his initial ap pearance. The Bivrre club dented his servings . with viciousness , when hits meant runs. He had an excellent curve, but did not have the necessary steam to check swatters of the calibre of the Burre club. The strain of the last three game played by the teams told on the players, wno seemed to nave lost ineir accus tomed snap. The Barre club fielded clean ly, only having ona error, while the New Hampshire bunch played loose when not at bat. AV. Johnston, Barre's star third Mcker, who is the most consistent player on the team, turned in a spotless field ing score at the end of the game. The old Spaulding man accepted nine chances without a slip-up. He made eight as sists, many of which were scooped up ou the run. Taplin was sent behind the but in the fifth inning, relieving Fowlie, whose left hand was badly swollen, after catching Malcolm the day before. TIip elongated East Barre boy found no diffi culty in holding the Barre twirler. - Nute, Tonguay and Davidson were the leaders in the afternoon's hitting. The former slammed out three safeties ami the last two connected for two each. Roland, Dudley's third baseman, wss the only man who managed to fathom the eurves of the local moundsman. He sen out two clean drives. With two out in the initial round, Roland hit safely to left Rnd advanced to second when Bernstein was passed. Niles prodded to right, and Roland counted. Bernstein made third on the play and Nile the middle station. Phimmer sent the big first baseman in with a neat hit to left. Davidson tightened and fanned Norris. Tonguav reached the initial sack in the second on Roland's blunder, took second on the pitcher's blind attempt to catch him napping, and slipped to third wnen rowiie nit to leit. Jiotti runners crossed the threshold on their slabster's two-bagger over left eld fence. Nute cored his pitcher on a clean drive to the fence. In the third, R. Johnston rapped out safe one to left, swiped second an' wormed to third on a fielder's choice. McKenzie was passed. Tonguay came long with a timely hit over second, R. Johnston and AVnght tallying. Fowlie was safe on the shortstop's error. Mai terminated at the plate on Davidson's fielder's choice. The Barre team now assumed a commanding lead and glided along the rest of the distance without danger, augmenting their score by two more counters. . The score: B. A. C. AATon. Lost. Pet.

AV. John ston was the starter, Stuart the media tor, and AA'right completed the play. Plum,mer was on first when Norris rapped a grounder to AV. Johnston. Roland played ft fine game, at third for the visitors. He was the strongest man with the club on the Hanover aggrega tion. He hit safely in the three games. "Bill" Stuart had an off day at the bat. The Snaulding slugger succumbed to the curves of AA'eare four out of five times. Probably Bill's mind was wan dering to some of the finals that he has to undergo this week. The rejuvenated "Bob"' AA'right, many times a comeback, whom the judges of the high court of baseball have pro scribed from the ranks of the national game many times to give way to the younger element in this city, was ous in uniform Saturday. His playing was a revelation to the spectators. I he old man accepted eighteen chances without a slip-up. At the bat, although out of practice, he knocked out one safe hit, being robbed of another. In the fifth round, Alex. McKenzie came around with the best fielding stunt of the game. Roland landed on one of Davidson's shoots and sent it on a lim for deep center field. Mac started back with the crack of the hat and pulled the ball down from over his shoulder. The catch was as pretty a one as has been seen on the campus this season. ab. r.

C. a 3 to 2 game to St. An selm's college of Manchester, N. 11., at the Berlin street grounds Saturday after noon. It was one of the best games of the season, snappily played and with fea tures enough to keep the interest of the fair-sized crowd of enthusiasts. In fact, it was one of the few games that have furnished an argument fur the fast home bunch. AA'eaferi was cm the mound for the A. C. and was touched up for ten safe swats, the hits being bunched by the collegiuns in the fourth, fifth and sixth linings; but otherwise the home siinger was strong. He was given splendid sup port by his teammates, one catch of Bot tigi in particular being a hair-raiser The catch came in the fifth, when the visitors were getting to AA'eaferi, three safe raps having been made, one run having been scored, another just nipped at the plate and another in prospect with the runner n second. Holcomb was up, and he hit a short fly to left. Bot tigi started with the crack of the bat, and seeing that he was likely to lose the ball he gave a dive just as it was striking the ground, scooping it up and rolling on his neck but still clinging to the ball. Both teams had chances to score early. n the first inning AA'eaferi and Coraolli mgled with two down, only to be leit when Soldini struck out. Again in the second Giacamuxzi drew a pass and Bot tigi was hit by the ball, and they worked double steal aided bv dummy worK on the part of the visitors; but there they were left, as AA'illiams flied to left and Tonazzi hit into double play, driving the ball at the shortstop, who hurk-u to third. The third was another chapter of lost pportunities for the locals, as, with one down, Calcagni was treated kindly, being sent to first on a free ticket, stealing second when the collegians were taking nan and going to third when the pitch er had a brainstorm and tossed the ball Harry as he perched on the second bag. Calcagni ducked the throw and scooted for third. Pornerlean's brain- torm continued when he passed AA'ea feri; but he revived enough to send Co- molli and Sojdini back to the bench on measly little pokes In front of the plate. St. Anselm s was dangerous in the second, when they clustered two singles, ut. AA eaferi tightened and closed the in- ing. A fielder's choice, a pass and a ingle gave the visitors their first tally n the fourth, Hagerty crossing1 the pan. ingles bv Harris, Fish and Pomerlean were mixed with a sacrifice bv McCarthy the fifth and gave the visitors one more tally. Harris neing caught at the plate on Sddini's heave before Fish reg istered on PomeTlean's sinele-sscker. It wss then that Bottogl filled the breach with his sensational catch. The Italians got back one of the two runs in the same inning. Tonazzi singled over third base and Davidi dropped an-j other into centerfield. On the drive To-! nazzi went tearing around the bases amt got nipped at third on the ccnterficlder's heave, Davidi going to second. At this point Hagerty generously dropped Cal cagni's serial and the first baseman fum bled AA'eaferi's little offering down the first base line, the latter misplay enab ling Davidi to cross the pan. Calcagni tried to score on the same misplay and was snuffed out, and Comolli went out to third. The college bovs copped the winning tsllv In the sixth on Ilagcrty's single, Derby's sacrifice and Dunn's safety. From the fifth to the eighth, the lo cals went up against a Bolid defense; but the eighth showed promise when AA'ea feri dropped one into right field, which Hagerty misjudged, and the runner went to second on Comolli's out. third to first. Soldini drew a pass, but the best Giaca muzzi could do was to roll one to second, who touched the base for a force-out, and the third out of the inning. AA'ith the score 3 to 1 against them, there looked like a fighting chance when Bottigi started the ninth with a safety, and AA'illiams was safe when his ground er got moxed up" with Bottigi and the second baseman. Tonazzi's fly to right field was dropped, and Bottigi. who had held up on second to avoid a double play, was forced at third on a very clone deci sion. Davidi fanned, but Comolli drew a pass. AA'eaferi, at this critical stage, poled out his third safety, and it was easy scoring for AA'illiams. ' Tonazzi took a fighting chance to tie up the score on the same play and was thrown out at the plate, thus making a sensational fin ish to an interesting contest. The score: I. A. C.

AAllliams, the Spaulding high player, filled in well at short, but was wean with the willow. Left-fielder Bottigi was the headliner. His catch of a short fly in the fifth was marvelous, as he got the ball not mor-s than two inches off the ground, after a hard run. It was better than a "shoe string" catch; and, besides, it choked off a threatening batting rally. St. Anselm's right-fielder thought he was picking shadows out of the air when. he dropped three Hies, two ot wnich were right in his mitt. But the sun field Is very bad. Two St. Anselm's players came near being put out of the business when they turned their ankles on the home plate. "Reminds nie some of the old North ern league," was the remark of a fan leaving the field. The band stand on the right field foul line is a nuisance and a hindrance to good baseball. Better Judgment in running oases might have saved the game for the 1. A. C. St. Anselm's would be a big drawing card again. 'MoecoiiK'lc was in poor . shape to catch. SUNSET LEAGUE SCHEDULE.

Blessings on Your Head Many men have found out to the ad vantage of their pocket book that a Panama Hat is about the least expen sive luxury-comfort that money can buy. Costs a little more in the beginning, but wears like iron and feels like a feather. Your head keeps cool and you for get you wear a hat, if it is a light, airy Panama of the sort you find here. Wear it several seasons and still it's good; bang it around and it don't seem to mind it. In short, it's the hat for comfort. When comfort of this kind can be bought for $4 and up, WHY HESITATE? Moore & Owens Barre's Leading Clothiers, Barre, Yt. Telephone 66-L 122 Ntrth Main Street, :aa:aaaaa:a;t: SPORTING NOTES. Rumors to the effect that "Jake" Mal colm, the star university of A'ermoni twirler, has been signed up with the Bos ton Nationals and was to leave at the close of the present college year, have no foundation. The big college pitcher has no intention of leaving before receiv ing his degree. As this is oniy his second year in school, A'ermont will be greatly aided for two years more in collegiate baseball by the same moundsman, who held Tufts college to one hit and shut out the Medford team on the seminary campus last Friday. It is reported that Halstein. the star first baseman of the university of A'er mont team, leaves the fifteenth of the month to join the Baltimore Orioles of the International league; At college he is one of the leading hitters on the team and should make good at Baltimore. "Jake" Pfeffer cf msior league baseball fame has been signed bv the Dorchester club of the Greater Boston league to minsge the team. The new league opened only a few weeks ago. Keading lias Withdrawn it club from the I'nited States lrague. The manage ment wss disappointed with the show, lag of tha club ever since the league opened, and after the miserable showing made on Memorial day decided to with draw. Baseball men at Indianapolis are negotiating for the Reading franchise and hope to have their city represented in the organization. It looks at though the Pittsburg team received the big end of the Hoffman, Leach, Lieficld, Cole swap. The Pitts burg club baa been scouting for a first baseman and will undoubtedly not be worried about Hoffman covering the in itial corner. Cole, who has been a sensa tion in the National league for the' past few years, has a lot of good baseball in him yet. As a pitcher Lifield is nearly all in and the same can be said of Leach as an outfielder. Many of the papers outside of New York look on Metiraw's Giants with envy, une paper said mat ir wainewson had landed ten straight games this year there would have been more talk about it than was made about the Titanic disaster. And they go farther to say that there has been a little chatter made about Marnuard, who has not allowed a single club in the league to outpoint him. Sam Felton. the husky pitcher of the Harvard baseball nine, who hat been given a thorough try-out by his coach, is rapidly rounding into form for the big game with Yale. On Memorial day he twirled an excellent game against Penn that aroused the hopes of the crimson followers. E. L. Mercer of Pennsylvania won the broad jump at the intercollegiate Satur day with a jump of 23 feet and 11 inches. If Gutterson had been in the event, he would have been pushed to his best, and there might have been a new record established. Jameson and Schang, the eighteen year-old battery of the Buffalo Interna tional league team, are going a wonder ful clip this season. Jameson comes from Paterson and Schang is a product Of Buffalo. This is their firBt year in professional ball. Manager Stallings feels highly elated over the success of bis two cubs. George Stovall, the first baseman of the St. Louis Browns, who managed the Cleveland club last year, issued a state ment the other day, emphatically deny ing the report that he was to displace shortstop AVallaee as manager of the St. Louis team. Larry McLean, the big catcher of the Reds, is the first catcher of the season to gain the respect of McGraw's base runners. He put a crimp in their base stealing record in their recent series with the Giants at the Polo grounds. Says one paper: "If Johnny Evers is a talking machine, Koger iiresnahan is a Democratic convention. Fred Snodgrass is the only Giant that is hitt ing below his nisual standard. Hoblitzel, the first baseman of the O'Day team, received his degree from a dental college the other dav. He is now called Dr. Hoblitzel. AAlllett of the Tigers' staff is at pres ent leading Jennings' pitchers and he has the a pea ranee to give the best in the league a run for honors. John AA'ard is not in the least dis gusted with the showing of his Boston team and says that soon the .boys will have better luck and win the majority of the remaining games. All Boston needs is about three first-class pitcher. AAeaver, the star shortstop of the White Sox, is a wonder. Manager Cal-, laghan has picked a find in this man. He is a veritable stone wall on defense and has an arm like iron. President Ban Johnson last week sent to the AA'hite House at AA'ashington an annual pass for the special' use of Presi dent Taft. The pass is a simple card in a leather wallet, entitling the pres ident and his party to all games. Cobb and Milan are two left-handed! batters who are not bothered by left-, handed pitchers. To-day they can bit pitchers of either delivery with ease. The AA'ashington American league clubf has returned Austin Howard, the youngj infielder, to the Richmond club, after; giving the youngster a thorough try-' out. Dave Shean, who was secured by the Boston Nationals from the Louisville team, could not come to terms with the; Boston people and has returned to Louis ville. According to the Phillies' doctor, Hans Lobert, the crack third sacker, will be back in the game about the middle ol June. Lobert, who has been resting at his home in Pittsburg, did not break his knee cap, but only splintered it. In throwing to first from awkward positions, there isn't a shortstop in either of the big leagues that can surpass Doo lan of the Phillies. ' " Carl Johnson, the star pitcher at the university of Georgia, who, standing six six fet one inch in his stocking feet, hold ing a record of 22 strike-outs of the 27 men that faced him, has been signed by the New York Americans.
