WHY MILK REMAINS SWEET
I have just installed a new Reid Milk Cooler and Areator. The
milk passes over the coils and cold water passes through them.
The milk is cooled from 98 degrees to 55 degrees as fast as it is
milked. The milk looses all the animal heat before being bottled
and will remain sweet much longer. Due to the rapid increase in
business since installing the cooler I believe it is a great help to

from as far west as Long Pine, as far
north as Gregory and as far east as
Plainview. Among the enthusiastic
rooters for O’Neill was Will Gahagan,

O’Neill lost one of the most in
teresting and close games of the sea

of stuff and served it hot and in ad

O’Neill defeated the Lee Brothers
Circus baseball team in a seven in
ning game at the fair grounds Sat
urday afternoon immediately after
the show by a score of G to 3. Bishop
officiated in the box for the locals and
one of the other stars of the game
was Manager Fred McNally on sec
ond base, who stopped everything
which came his way although ho had
to wrestle with some of the hot ones.
The circus aggregation was composed
of some excellent ball players and
the game was exciting from start to
finish, the show boys being backed by
an earnest and voluble bunch of root
ers. A fair attendance was present
at the game. In the evening a dance
at the bowery for the benefit of the
local team drew a good crowd. It
was a financial success.
Business men and athletic enthu
siasts of the city are contemplating
the leasing of ground in the north
part of the city north of St. Patrick’s
church for the establishment of an
athletic field and the erection of a
grandstand, the field to be used for
baseball in the summer and for foot
ball and other athletic events in sea
son. Secretary John L. Quig of the
fair association has notified Manager
Fred McNally of the baseball team
that the directors of the fair are in
sisting that the baseball club either
pay rent for their occasional use of
the fair grounds or assume part of
the indebtedness of the fair. The de
mand of the directors of the fair
practically makes the purchase or
lease of an athletic park more cen
trally located necessary as neither the
baseball team or school athletics are
run for profit and rarely pay expen
ses. A park closer in it is thought
might increase the attendance some
what, particularly at the occasional
weekly games. The attitude of the
fair directors is somewhat mystify
ing and comes as a surprise, as the
grounds on which the fairs are held
were donated for that purpose by
citizens of O’Neill, who also as tax
payers assist in paying the bonus the
fair draws from the county each
