Last evening as we walked in
from out along Chicago avenue, we
were, just as we arrived at th end
of the pavement, accosted by a sign,
which read something like this:
"All persons driving automobiles
or other motor vehicles, faster than
twelve milts per hour, or eight miles
at street crossings will be fined $50
and cats. This law will be strictly
We thought it was really intend
ed when we read it, but remember
ing that but a short time before we
had witnessed a flock of autos, six
in number, coming down the speed
way as fast as high grade gasoline
would make them go, we thought
it a joke. Of course while the sign
forbids the speeding. the nice
smooth pavement on the other hand

JUNIOR RED SOX DE
FEAT SOUTH PARK
Play A Game In the Morning With
Startling Results. Fifteen
Runs to None.
From Mnnn.iv'p Daily.
A very interesting game to those
who were in touch with the matter
was had yesterday morning, when
the Junior Red Sox at the ball park
just off lower Main street, played
an aggregation from the south por
tion of the city, known as the South
Park team. The game which wa-
one of much interest, resulted in a
victory for the Junior Red Sox, -by
a score of 15 to 0.
The Junior Red Sox is a newly
organi7cd team and they figure on
rlaying out of town ball as much
as possible. They are made up of
the coming ball players for this
city, and will play a good fast game
of ball. They will probably go to
Cedar Creek Sunday to play the
town team at that place. A good
game is expected from them as they
have been practicing a good deal and
are in good trim to put up a good
fast game of ball.
