ODD GAME OURS
AUBURN ONCE MORE SUFFERS
The Game Proved an Interesting
One Throughout With a Finai
Result of 5 to 2
The hall game at Auburn last
Friday was probably one of the
most exciting games in which our
boys have participated this season.
Notwithstanding that Falls City
took the lead in the first, inning
and maintained it to the end, the
game was constantly in doubt and
the tentiou was not removed until
Heck ran into right field and
caught the last man out. The
ideal feature of the game was the
rooting of the Auburn fans. A
Falls City crowd is as silent as the
dead compared to an Auburn
bunch. A magaphone chorus ex
tending in a line four deep from
first to third base, split the air
when the teams took their places
in the first inning, and every
member of the chorus searched
his soul for sounds to rattle our
boys, but there was nothing doing.
The team worked together both in
the field and at bat. Clare Foster
played especially brilliantly, some
of his stops brought even the Au
burn rooters to their feet, Kelsey
pitched his usual reliable game
and outside of a few lucky bits in
the seventh inning, Auburn could
not locate him at all.
Paris, the negro from Tecumseh,
pitched the first two innings for
Auburn, when lie was stabled and
the Indian with the dutch name,
Kratzberg, was substituted, (ieo.
Segrist umpired with acknowl
edged fairness, as he always does.

"The Time,-The Place And The Girl"
Steering wheels are a nuisance
anyway. All the young fellows
will tell you this, •'and what all
the young fellows say must be
true It was on the road north
west of Falls Citv which is lined
by a row of walnut trees. The
time was about the hour of twelve
Friday night. The girl—well,
that’s the secret. But beneath
the shade of the walnuts stood a
silent motor car, its lights turned
to the cornfield making its green
leaves pale and unreal in the
glare. The front seat was un
occupied while the rear keat was
in the shadow. Another car on
its way from the Auburn ball
game came gliding down the
road wav and stopped by the
“What’s the trouble” anxiously
inquired the driver of the second
No trouble you neut” replied a
voice from the rear seat, “drive
Honk. honk, said the horn,
which means go ahead. The
home bound car glided on its way
to the city. The lights of the
silent car still shone on the corn
blades. The steering wheel was
neglected, for steering wheels are
a nuisance anyway says the
| young fellows—and what the
! young fellows say must be true.

To Fruit Growers
We have on display in this
office samples of apple, sprayed
and unsprayed, grown on the
Henrv C. Smith farm one mile
east and a quarter of a mile south
of Barada, and the difference is
most marked, the sprayed being
almost perfect while the un
sprayed are perfectly worthless.
That all may become better
versed in the methods used in
obtaining this result, Congress
man Pollard has succeeded in his
elTorts, and obtained the services
of G. E. Merrill special field
agent of the department of agri
culture, who will give a demon
stration on Mr. Smith’s farm
next Monday from 10 a. in. until
2 p- m. when it is hoped that
every fruit grower in these parts
will avail himself of the opportu
nity and see the good results ob
tained from the spraying method.
