favor of the locals when the final
inning "was played out.
The game was very interesting
barring the eighth inning when a
dispute between the visitors and um

gave one of the best exhibitions of
baseball playing that has been seen
on th local lot this season, as the
infielders took all kinds of chances
and fielded like a house afire. Pete
Herold. wiio officiated at short, was
in his test form and nothing was al
lowed to escape him, while Hilt at
second and Newman and O'Donnell
at third and first were able to check
any of the hits of the visiting team.
The game ran along very smoothly
up to the fourth inning with neither
side showing any signs of scoring
but in the fourth the Eagles threa
tened to score. Wolff had been retired
when Herold placed a safe hit over
short and was followed by O'Donnell
who repeated the performance of

nailed by the visitors.
In the seventh the locals opened
up in a manner that looked good for
more runs, as Mason the first man
up secured a 'two saeker but that was
as far as he got, James and Winscot
retiring through the strikeout route
and Wolff grounding to first.
The eighth inning gave ihe vis

scene that came near marking the
sudden end of the game. The first of

part of the expansion of this order;

is at the present time one of the

To the general public the work

many cases the order has suffered

IS SERIOUSLY ILL
State President cf the Eagles Taken
Sick This Morning; At Early
Hour, Suffers Much. Pain
From Tuesday's ii!y.
William Barclay, state worthy
president of the Fraternal Order of
Eagles, is confined to his bed today
as the result of a very severe attack
of what seems to be either gall stones
or appendicitis, the exact nature of
which has not been determined. Mrs.
Barclay was awakened this morning
shortly after 4 -o'clock by the groans
of her husband who was apparently
suffering a great deal of pain until
the arrival cf a physician to look
after his care.
The patient was in such shape
that it was necessary to have him
given a hyperdemic injection to
quiet his pain and from then on un
til this noon he was resting in sleep.
The patient suffered a similiar at
tack some four years ago and at
that time it was thought that he was
affected with gall stones but as it
' did not. bother him further he was
net operated on and it is more than
"probable that the present attack is
a reoecurance of the same trouble.
His host of friends ar trusting
i that h may soon rally from the ef-
fects of his illness and be able to be
', up and around as usual, although it
may be necessary to have him taken
to a hospital for treatment.
