"Rascball Items F01 some- tim
past political matters have prevented
us giving that attention to local news
which we always endeavor lo do. On
last Saturday afternoon the Scott Bas'-
jall club of this city paid another
friendly visit to tneir rivals at Rock
Island, the Wapello club. Those Wa
pello boys play a heavy game and are
very hard to beat. The Scott boys are
lew hands at the amusement a-nd did
not expect to win a victory, but pr;
rjosed lo do their 'level best.' The
Wapeiios won the game, but as the
Rock Island Argus states, 'were a lit
tle surprised at the improvement the
"Hawkeycs" had made since their last
visit.' We predict that the Scott club
will come out all right in the end.
These contests are carried on in the
most friendly manner, the members
of cither club conducting themselves
is gentlemen. At the present time
'he baseball fever is spreading from
Maine to Texas. In every state in the
union the young men are banding to-
gether for the fostering of this ath-
letie amusement. As in all our towns
and cities the brain is taxed much be

be hoped that this healthy diversion
