"HANNAH, A GREAT .MOTHER" CLAYTON WINS OES MOINES GAME BETWEEN SHOWERS 'Twas the snino old story, males, nod the snore, allowing for a mis count on our part, was 21 to 5. Des Moinos had a mixed loam from that end of the county, inoluding "Vince" Meelo. u former Clayton boy, from Grenville. We can't say that -the game was full of thrills, but things got rather interesting in tho third, when the lies Monies team cot heavy with the big stick and slam- ned out four of thoir seven hits. including two home runs. That ended the excitement. "Smoky Joe" went along easily except for the third inning, and altho hu had not become used to the ligliier atmo sphere, lie was breezui? them in with a hop as Des Moines was mak ing their final effort in the ninth. Everybody on the Clayton team got one or more hits except "Bah" uoggs, who gamboled around the short station. Johnson hit the long est homer wo have ever een here, and wo've been watching them in (Jayton for the past fifteen yearn. This boy is an ex-sailor. Ho throws to starboard and bats to port and shoves off with a moan, hoóf. He squared away with an easy swing fore and aft, lammed the olo nill and sailed it out. on an oven keel just above the enemy's forotops. It mt the race irack fair amidships. and we don't know how far it went after thnt. Anywav. it was nn easy cruise around the coursn for him and he eased down nnd came in on slow speeil while Iho outfielders wero trying to relay the ball back to the park. During tho hitter part, of the game t rained every few minules, nnd the wind became almost a gale. The biggest crowd of the season witness Manager Byrne informs us that that bunch of Texline railrnader will occupy the Grays' nttention for next Sunday, at Texlmo. Any body who has seen this crowd per form knnwS that thoy are hard bunch to handle, and we arc guess- ng it will be a good game. This Ls Clayton's opportunity to "got even" for the only defeat they have suf fered this year, and a goodly crowd of fans should be on hand to boost 'em along.
