Holt county baseball fans have en
joyed the privilege since and includ
ing last Thursday of seeing the
O’Neill team win three of the four
games played in that time, including
the one at Emmet Wednesday after
noon. They also have been privileged
to see two famous pichers, one of
them under contract with the St.
Louis Cardinals, go down to defeat
before our own Ed. Allen, than whom
there is none better in these parts.
Allen not only defeated the other two
stars, but also beat them in all angles
of the game in addition to outpitch
ing them. TJie first of the noted ones
to fall before the O’Neill man was
Carl Simpson of Omaha, who was im
ported by Stuart in an attempt to de
feat O’Neill on the Stuart diamond
last Thursday. The attempt failed,
the score being B to 2 in favor of
O’Neill. But notwithstanding, it was
a fast game with victory possible for
either side up until the last strike was
•ailed on the last Stuart man in the
ninth inning.
Saturday, the first day of the twe
day rodeo and baseball tournament
staged at the fairgrounds by the local
club, Stuart and O’Neill again met.
McGuire of Neola, Iowa, and Omaha,
presided on the mound for O’Neill on
this occasion, the purpose being to
rest Allen for the big Sunday game
between O’Neill and Verdigre which
was expected to be and which was
the gala game of the series. Mc
Guire, although one of the beat
pitchers who has been up the line
this year, couldn’t get started until
after several innings, and owing to
poor support lost his game to Stuart
by a score of 11 to 4. Stuart’s old
standby, Miller, served for the west
enders and pitched one of his best
games of the season. McGuire pitched
big league baseball in the latter part
of the game, but the lead established
in the early part could not be over
come. Fans in this game were
privileged to see a tripple play, eome
thftig not witnessed often and in fact
so rare in baseball of any class as to
'call for special mention. The play oc
curred in the seventh inning, when
Carrol playing second for Stuart, hit
« hot one straight into McGuire's
glove, with one man alroady on at
first and another at third. McGuire
immediately threw to Harrington,
playing third for O’Neill, who caught
Brunning of Stuart, backing up to
third. Harrington then slammed
the globule over to Hank Person at
first in time for the latter to put out
Hamilton of Stuart, who after huv
ing started for second base was try
ing to get back to first.
Three thousand breathless fans, in
eluding the kids, saw world series
baseball played on Sunday afternoon
when O’Neill and Vcrdigre met. They
also saw Ed. Allen, O’Neill’s slab
artist, humble the mighty Fred Wig
gington of the St. Louis Cardinals
and defeat him in a battle which was
strictly a pitcher’s duel, by the very
narrow score of 1 to 0. One to
nothing games are always good
games, but only once in a lifetime as
good as this, which is evidenced by
the fact that no errors were recorded
against Yerdigre and only two
against O’Neill. Five hits were
scored off Wiggington and but two
off Allen. Each pitcher struck out
thirteen men. This game is to be re
peated at Verdigre on Sunday, Sep
tember 6, with the same two pitchers
opposing each other.
The rodeo put on in conjunction
with the baseball tournament Satur
day and Sunday, was exceptionally
entertaining and had much to do with
drawing the big crowds of both days.
Manager C. H. Blakely, who is en
route to Norfolk and Sniaha with his
riders and outlaw horses put on ex
citing programs on each day, al
though they were somewhat curtail
ed by the length of the ball games
which preceded them and also by a
slight shower Sunday afternoon. The
horses were some of the best per
formers eves shown here and a num
ber of the riders were thrown. Sev
eral suffered injuries, but none se
rious ones.
Wednesday afternoon the O’Neill
baseball team defeated Emmet at the
big picnic at the latter town, by a
score of 8 to 5. Allen again presided
for O’Neill, while Tomlinson served
for Emmet. The Emmet team was
largely recruited from Stuart and
DeLay of Stuart played center field
for O’Neill. Holiday of Stuart was
the unpire. The game was witnessed
by a very large crowd and was pre
ceded by a game between the Shields
township team and the Emmet sec
ond team in which the former were
the victors.

The Catholic Daughters held a
picnic at the Country Club Tuesday
evening. The ladies planned to start
on their picnic at five o’clock; at the
appointed hour the heavens were
darkened by approaching storm clouds
but the ladies heeded them not, hop
ing that they might enhance the pros
pects for a downpour, but no such
luck—the rain disappeared. An ex
citing base ball game was played by
the married and single ladies. Only
two innings were played. The game
was stopped at the end of the second
inning on account of sprinkle;the mar
ried ladies were two scores in the
lead and were declared the winners.
One of the outstanding features of
the game was a home run by Mrs.
Stein in the first inning. Mrs. Will
ging, the accomplished 3rd baseman
for the married ladies, was hit on the
jaw by a ball delivered to her posi
tion by the pitcher in an endeavor to
intersept a base runner; she retired
from the game and Mrs. P. C. Dono
hoe substituted for her.

Farmers on the tablelands south of
the Calamas River, below Beaver
Flats, are reporting considerable
damage to their corn fields and other
cultivated crops by the annual migra
tion of the carp, which late each sum
mer leave the shallow lakes of the
tablelands and trek to the river to re
main until the fall rains again re
stock their homes with an abundance
of water. July this year has been
unusually dry in the section and as a
result the lakes became low much
earlier than formerly, causing the
migration at a time when the young
carps are in a most succulent and
tender stage.
The fish are largely vegetarians,
subsisting mostly on grass and other
shoots and roots which they find along
the lake shores and in the shallow
portions of the water.
Each year when the water becomes
so low that it grows uncomfortably j
warm, the carp leave, and traveling
by night when the dew is on the grass,
move overland to the streams. The
dew furnishes sufficient dampness to
keep their gills moistened by night
and in the day time they seek the
shade of the cornfield, burrowing in
the damp soil about the stalk roots
during the heated part of the day.
The young corn is just to their liking.
They fell it by first eating off the
roots, and then attack the leaves and1
sprouting ears on the fallen stalks.
The cafp always travel in a straight
line, rarely deviating from their orig
inal course, and to this trait is due
the fact that they do not completely
destroy an entire field, contenting
themselves with only eating the
provinder in their lines of march. A
school of a hundred migrating carp,,
however, will cut a swath several
rods wide across a field and if the
line of march happens to be the long
way of the field the damage is con
