the dirt in the centre making a
round dry hard top. When this is
done and the trees on the North

good view to welcome the eye of a

t Bear Grass 4 Williamston 5. •
There was an interesting gauie
of ball here last Friday afternoon.
Beas Grass our old rivals, came
unexpectedly and we picked up a
few boys and went out with the
expectation of gettipg beat.
There were no runs made in the
first two innings. In the third iu-
I ning Charlev Hasscll threw a high
ball over baseman's head
letting in two men. We took it as
a matter of course. But when in
the following two innings, we
scored two runs, thereby tyjng
them, we began to feel better.
Bear Grass made two runs in the
seventh inning and in the eighth
Dickson came to the bat with two
men on bases and hit for a home
bagger running the score up to
five. There it stood throughout
the remainder of the game.
Batterries were: Bear Grass, Tay
lor and Mizell; Williamston, Has
sell and Hassell.
Willlamston 4 Windsor 10.
With the exception of the second
inning Williamston played a good
game when Windsor made six runs.
White's arm failed and Windsor
batted to the tune of her own
music. Taylor, catcher, for feai
of perhaps bruising his right hand
allowed three balls to pass him jU
the cost of a run toi each bnll there
being a man on thitd in each in
■tance. Fountain playing left
field, played a fast game, went to
the bat four times, milking three
singles and one double base hit,
but being followed by a weak bat
ter was unable to biiug Williams
tbn out of the hole. Dixon on
second played a fast game but was
somewhat weak at the bat. lid
Rogers came in at the eleveuth
hour and for three .innings held
Windsor down for no score.
We thing Williamston's exj»eri
ence in hiring men for this game
should be worth something to fu
ture managers. These men "had
no record and were recommended
by men who knew nothing of the
Windsor 9 Bear Grass 2.
j In the Bear Grass game Dixon was
the star. Taylor pitchec good hall
for five innings, only two runs,
two errors atil three hits being
charged against him. W. k
Mizell broke in the fourth inning
giving a net score of five runs—tin
result of wild pitching and heav)
batting. Ade Mizell made two
costly errors, otherwise he played
an excellent game.
Windsor played a good game
against l>oth the tennis Jacocks on
the secoml played a good, fasi
game, Gilliam on the third made
two costly errors. Their short
•top made one error at the "price ol
On the whole everybody enjoyed
the games between Martin and
Bertie, the only regret being the
total defeat of Martin, But this
should only taacli 11s how to beat
them next year.
