The race meet and base ball tourna
ment on Thursday and Friday last
were a repitition of the good time of
the preceding day, but with increas
ing crowds and greater interest. The
idling un xiiuibuay was exceptionally
good, especially the free-for-all, in
which Basco B., owned by Geo. A.
Curry, and Gentry, owned by Wes
Pedler, were the favorites. Basco B.
won and was greeted witli yells of
delight, showing that the handsome
stallion Was a prime favorite with
our people, as one of the finest horses
ever owned in this section. Gentry,
also, came in for much applause, and
is a noble, faithful little trotter, and
led Basco B. a merry hot-foot race.
Among the home horses, also, that
made good showing, we would not
forget to mention Stewart Conger’s
reliable trotter, “Robin Hood,” who
gave good speed exhibits the first and
last days, and surprised all with the
good time made and faithful work.
Robin Hood is a most clever horse
and good wherever you put him. The
ball game was also hot stuff, the re
sult being changed from the preced
ing day, making Wiggle Creek the
winners. Friday was the big day,
Arcadia coming down en masse, led
by their fine band of some 25 pieces,
and helped our home band split the
air with choice music. The Arcadia
band is made up a larger proportion
of young boys, but they are no “kids”
when it comes to music, in which
they are veterans. The races that
day were even more exciting than
the previous days, and proved the
race meet a winner for all around
good speed contests. The Arcadians
won the “rubber” game that day by
a score of 6 to 2, and proved that
when it comes to finding the ball in
the ifcld or at home they are a great
aggregation, and they had to be to
win out over the wiry Wiggle Creekers.
All in all, the three days were among
the best of sporting events in this
section held many a long day. The
Arcadians will have a grand carnival
in their town on the 29tli, 30th and
31st instances, and we trust the
people of Loup City will attend en
masse, and show them that we appre
date the courtesy they always show
when we have anything “doing.”
