What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The Whitehall ‘Team Played Horse With the Pony Boys. Sunday morning our -boys went to Pony in a two-horse and a four- horse rig. In the evening the re- port. came over the wires that Pony had won the game by 12 to 11. Our boys had started the game by get- ting five runs’ in the first inning. A spectator says that they then be- came reckless in running bases. At any rate, the Pony boys. got on their batting clothes and hit Ches- ter McCall for fourteen clean ones; and when the game ended the um- pure declated Pony the victors by one run. The umpire allowed the winning run to come in from sev- ond base on a passed ball, in plain violation of the ground rule agreed upon, providing that the runner could have but one base ona passed ball. Whether our boys let the Pony team win Sunday, just in oder to walk off with their money on Mon- day, isa matter that you cannot get our boys to talk on. At any rate,the Pony boys became swelled with their Sunday victory and claimed to have the best team, Our management conld not stand that, and offered to wager #100 on each side and hold the Whitehall team there for Monday. — After much rustling around town the Pony team managed to find $100, and the $200 was placed in the bank, Pony insisted on having. the robber umpire of the Sunday game again officiate. He was allowed to go in on probation. | Arlett took his base on balls; **Whiskers”’ came up and looked dangerous to Mr. umpire, so the first ball, which came so high that the-catcher couldn’t reach it, was called a strike; the next strack in front of the®plate and was called a strike; the third went behind “Whiskers,” but the umpire called “Strike.”’ Arlett slid home, had gotten up and was ten fect toward the players’ bench before the catcher received the ball, and the ampire said “‘you’re out.”’ Mr. McFadden was substituted as umpire. The cighth inning came and passed and the score stood 6 to 5 in favor of Pony and the umpire. Then the balloon went up, Our boys lambasted the ball all over Madison Valley, and when the smoke cleared away the score was 11 to.6 ih favor of Whitehall, everybody in Pony was broke, and the town looked like a cemetery. t A Word of eee, Ed. Sunuieut: A complaint has come to my ears from Mr. John Gilbert,to the effect that his little adopted boy, Henry Adolphus Gilbert has been permitted, allowed, or persuaded, to eat and sleep away from home for several days, without the per- mission or consent of his adopted father or mother, which hascaused them a great deal of anxiety, not: knowing his whereabouts. This is not right, and is contrary to law. A word to the wise is sufficient; and the ignorant should obtain knowledge. . Z. D. Fosrmr. Make Your Kick Now. The county commissioners will meet next Monday, Tuesday’ and Wednesday, July. 2ist to 28d, as a board of equalization, for the pur- pose of adjusting assessments.

The Giltting is thus spread over the year, and no confusion arises. The Scottish system la to let Louses by the year from May 28, Even the smallest, consisting of enly ene room, are so Jet.

Ocensionally some streets—in Glasgow, for lustunce —present an appearance of wholesale evictions. ’ So numerous are the demands that vans cannot always be obtained, and every kind of vebicle, Including horse; less carriages, popularly known as “hurleys,” are preased Into the service, supplemented by father, mother and the children, each carrying pleturea, mirrors or @her cherished articles toy precious to trust to the tender mercies of some ramshackle conveyunee, These processions are moving along all day.
