Desolation is con spicuous in the region lacking trees. The sage-brush desert and the tree less prairies seem to be crying to trees to hide their nakedness. Nothing Is nore beautiful or use ful than a noble tree. What a sense of companionship is felt when resting beneath its shade! In its calmness and stability it exemplified God's way of working, without haste, friction or discord. To cut dowa a tree unnecessarily is akin to vandalism, and deserving of punishment as a penal offense.

And by the way it was just such fielding as this that was responsible for Ery's hitless day his first this season. "Bugs" Has a Case for the Felon' Court , Fobs loaded Ery's second "hit" Into the deadwagon in the ninth. The hit off Ery's stick' bounded high twice before Foss, racing across the dia mond, snatched it. "Deeby" didn't have time to try to throw, but he sure gave a good Imitation of a can non, spitting hot ones. He literally pushed the ball to first, but he got more punch into that push than seemed human ad the ball beat Ery into first by ajump. In the meantime Barber had raced In on Downes' line .drive to left in the eighth and out-reached a fast oul curve, fanned by a 'strong east. breeze. He just did manage to clutch the pill as it looked about ready to drop safe, to Barber's rlghc. But Miat wasn't all. In the first Inning. Nance cut loose with one headed for tho rail road bridge- trying to catch Fenton stealing. LaMotte leapod and missed, but "Kid" Leach, who was racing back to Robby to covor any escapo, f made a flying leap into the bright atmosphere and came down with the apple. Brack almost cut off the lone Smoker error of the day, Foss' wild throw to second on which Schreibor scored from third, Davy raced in, scooped up the ball, and shot it to Nance, but it was a second too late. n the meantime the Lakeland outfit was giving a pretty good account of itself. Palmer made a beautiful throw to catch Nance on a hard drive to deep short. In the eighth Leonard cut down one af Vaughn's hot grass scrochers and got his man, and this boy Wynne was shooting them down to second lower than fans here or his umps elther-have been seeing them go. His Umps Learns When to Duck It was in the fifth, with Vaughn speeding to second, that Umpire Mir- Namara learned a good lesson in ducking. Wynne had been making his pitcher lay down when he threw to second, but his umps hadn't no ticed apparently. Anyway, when ho did hear Wynne's throw coming, It was too late, for it had bounded off his back. McNamara was squatting to catch the play, Schrelber bad cleared out of the path, and the ball, headed dead for the sack, sunk Into the middle of his umps' back Just as the base of his neck. Schreiber pitched magnificent ball after the fourth inning. He fanned thirteen en, and only four hits were made off his delivery. Thanks to bis support, Cocho was tapped only once after the second, letting only three safeties through during the entire game. Tamp opened against Lang when LaMotte walked. Felix bounced hot one off Leonard's shine, and Brack clouted a clean one to right. LaMotte, who had gone to third on Wynne's bad throw to second, and Felix scoring. Here Schreiber came into tho box, Foss and Barber were eaity, but Vaughn drove a daisy-kisser to right and Brack clustered the rubber.

Hinle turned to throw to LaMotte for the first end of a double, but Bobtty thought two were down and was about to head for the bench- as he saw Vaughn grab the hot one. Hinle theft beat Fenton to the bag, for the second out. Manee poked a Texas leaguer into left and Johnson counted, Sscrelber taking third. With Manes racing to second, Barber threw to Foss, who seeing Manes made a wild try to cut him down, the ball sailed into right and Schreiber raced home, just ahead of Brack's beautiful throw. The Smokers evened it up In their half. Felix strolling, stole second and scored on Foss' line single to center, all after two were gone. A pass to Brack was sandwichod in. The winning count trailed across in the fourth. Again two were gone when Felix drew four wide ones, and again Cuu burglared the keystone bag. This time Brack drove a daisy kisser to right for the counter. Dave was caught stealing. Vaughn singled in the fifth with two gone, stole second and third, but Leach fanned.
