    Cloth Mill Increases League Lead
By DefeatingRhodhiss Club Here
Fisher's Hurling Too Mach For
\lslting Club. Weathers Hit
ting Features.
The Cleveland Cloth mill club
»f Shelby tightened its hold on
first place in the Western Caro
lina league here yesterday by
defeating the Dick Gurley Rhod
his team 9 to 3.
Up until last week Rhodhlss was
tied with the Shelby club for first
place.
Getting Close Now.
The Shelby outfit has to win only
one more game to clinch the first
half pennant in the league. There
are only three more games and one
victory will place the local outfit so
well on top they cannot be over
come.
Good Tn Finches
Pisher held the visiting club to
five hits but the remarkable aspect
of his hurling was his ability to
mow down the visiting batters m
this pinches. Once he struck out two
batters with two men on the sacks,
and again he whiffed two with the
bases loaded.
The hitting of Cricket Weathers,
third-sacker. and the fielding of
Giireath, southpaw first baseman,
were other features for the home
club.
Bumgardner, the opposing pitch
er. was wild or otherwise the Rhod
hiss team would have made it a
close battle. Dick Gurley, former
Shelby coach, caught a good game
for his club and seemed as active
on hLs feet as in days when he star
red in college and semi-pro ball but
he could not connect with Fisher’s
fast balls. Buff was the best hitter
for the visitors.
A good crowd for Thursday wit
nessed the contest,

It was originally believed to be

It was noted that man often had this

Since this disease is found among
