forced by a battery from Fair Haven,
a short stop from tho same place, a,
second baseman and a left flelder from
Hoosick Falls.
The gamo between this combination
of teanis was witnessed by a largo
crowd and the contest was filled with
intoresting plays.
Both of the batteries gave an exhib-
ltlon such as is seldom seen. Only
four hlts wero mado in tho entlre gamo
and all of these oll of Essenter. But
this twirler got the better of E. Shultz
who pitched for North .Bennington in
tho numb'er of strlkeouts and free pas
ses. Tho visitors made thoir runs in the
flrst andUhird innings, two in cach
helped by Bennington's errors.
For the locals Keeler in the seventh

and soon trotting in on a wild throw
of Fair Haven to Hoosick Falls, (cat-
cher to second baseman. ) In the noxt
inning Hlggins after recoiving a frco
