he became alll.cted with rheumatism in
Its most violent form. For the next half
year his case excited great Interest and
anxiety. At times, a few times only, he
felt well enough to walk out, but these
periods of apparent improvement were al
ways soon shattered by a more serious and
severe attack. On Friday last ho was tak
en to tbe sanitarium at Alma, being ac
companied by his wife and Dr. Cameron.
The next day Donald MclUe received word
that he could suivlvo but a few hours.
He sank rapidly from tho time ho left here,
and expiied at 0:30. The Immediate, cause
of his death was Drlght'a disease. The
body was brought to Alpena Monday even
ing, and tho funeral will bo held at the
residence of Donald Mcllao on Dock
street, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock,
conducted by tho Knights Templar.
"The deceased was bom In Walpole, N.
n., in 1808, but lived the most of his life
in Vermont. Three years ago he came to
Alpena and was a valued assistant to Don
ald McKae In his business matters. Ho
was accompanied by his wife to whom ho
had been married about three years. Mrs.
McRae is prostrated by the sad affliction.
Tho deceased was a 32nd degreo Masou,
having attained that rank at Burlington,
Vt., seven years ago. Ho belonged to tho
Knights Templar commandery at Brattle
boro, Vt. He leaves a father, mother and
a brother, all living In tho Mast."
The fuucral was largely attended. Tho

officiated at tho house, but the remainder
of tho service was with Masonic honors.
About 00 Odd Fellows and 75 uniformed
Knights Templar, headed by the leading
band of the city, followed tho body to Its

HINSDALE, N. H.
Victor)' or the 1'nll,
In the hase-ball gamo between the Fats
and Anti-Fats, on Riverside park last Sat
urday afternoon, corpulency was ot o pre
mium. The antagonism between tho two
teams was very strong, and the stout gen
tlemen agonized their slender opponents to
the tune of 24 to 17. One slender "party"
was heard to remark that he considered it
unfair to expect his nine to defeat a team
composed of fellows so much bigger than
bis. The fleshy contingent take consider
able pride In the fact that, although tho op
posing sido sprang a college pltcber upon
them, yet they were able to connect with
the ball without difficulty, as the score will
show. Their shadowy opponents po'nt to
the fact that it only took nine men with
them for the game, and that at no time did
they have ten men in the field. A field
hospital tent was placed near third base to
attend to all injured players, and a very
activo ambulance corps was ever in readi
ness for an omergeucy call. Roger Hol
land and Fred Fennessy, in full uniform,
acted as police, and wero in frequent de
mand to uphold the decisions of the um
pire, J. E. Mann, who appeared with a
placard on his back rfiiuestine that the
umpire should not be "jarred." Mr. Mann's
decisions were non-pirtisan, and ho filled
his difficult position very acceptably to both
Considering the face that many of tho
players were not in trnining, the showing
was very good, especially in the direction
of avoiding the ball. The question arse
as to one of the bats being within the rules,
but it was decided to be al' right by the
umpire, and no further objections were
made, although some still believe its dimen
sions were not legal. The bat was brought
on by E. Robertson, and at the time of the
dispute was wielded by U. (J. Kobertson.
Dr. Worthing was the chief moving power
in arranging the game, and he also man
aged tho Fats in a very acceptable manner.
Mr. Keyou also showed much skill by the
manner in which he handled tho Auti Fats.
Durincr tho came the band boys filled tho
ir with sweet harmony, and were present
ed with about $40, the proceeds of tho
game after all expenses were paid. The
crowd was one of the largest of the season,
and exceedingly enthusiastic. The players
appeared in uniforms of tueir own construc
tion, and in some cases the appearance was
very picturesque. The paucity of errors is
partly due to the generosity of the scorer.

en one of the men showed fight, and Mr.
Hinds was compelled to use force with him.
The men were placed in the lock-up for
safe keeping over night and given a hear
ing Wednesday morning. They plead
guilty to being intoxicated, and were fined,
with costs, $12.2-1, in default of which
they will work out the amount at the
county farm, where Mr. Hinds took them
Wednesday afternoon. They gave their
names as John Fitzpatrick and Clarence
Bailey, one claiming to bavo been at work
for Mr. Hooker in this town, the other in
the corn canning factory at Brattleboro.
They united in placing the blame on the
man who wns not arrested, as having led
them on. People who observed the three
together say that the one who got away
was much tbe toughest looking character of
tbe three, although all were undesirable

It is with sincere regret that Hinsdale
people learn that R, A. Ciogber and familv
will some time in the near future leave
town, and will be succeeded by Charles
Bigelow, who has a large interest in the
Hailo, Frost & Co. 's mills, be having bought
the frost interest. .Mr. Uigelaw has been
presiueut oi a large mill corporation in
Maine, but will soon move to Hinsdale, and
mil tako charge of the mill as superintend
ent; hence he retirement of Mr. Clogher,
who has bad charge for several years,
Mr Clogher has always identified himself
with any movement for the best interests
of the town. Both he and his wife have
been regular attendants at the Cougrega
tional church, where their loss will be keen
ly felt. No doubt it may tend to the pros
perity of the corporation to have a man in
charge, who has so great a personal inter
est as tbe new incumbent, and thus indi
rectly add to the prosperity of the town,
and viewed from that point the people
would welcome the change, but this fact
makes the loss of Mr. Clogher and his
worthy family no less to be regretted. We
are glad to know that they are likely to re
main in town for several weeeks, or possi
