the first and seventh Innings, In the
first through a hit by Lnngford, and
In tho' seventh by a two-saclter by
Gutnmcre and a similarly long drive
by Langford. Tho visitors rounded
the frame onco In tho sixth and twice

battle, Fussel for Julesburg striking
out eighteen men and Ellers having
sovonteen strike outs to his credit.
