barn the other day and went camp
ing for n day or two nt the Yellow
Banks. Yesterday morning , on nc-
count of the cool weather , they decid

It was the opinion of Mr. Nordwlg
thnt the animal had become frisky
through his food or something that
had been eaten , as ho kicked the dash
board off nnd In other wnys registered
his absolute objection to doing ns wns
desired. Nevertheless they nmnnged
to get to town.
When the animal was returned to
the livery stable the whole matter
wns satisfactorily explained by the
question. "Where did you got this
horse7 It doesn't belong here and a
mistake hns evidently been made.
Where hnvo you left the horse you

Nordwlg had taken a colt or a

IVm-iii Wind IlPlim Corn.
The warm wind from the south Sat
urday hns been helping materially In
the corn development and has likewise
absorbed considerable quantities of the
excess surface moisture. It has been
something of rare occurrence this sea
son , and following the excessive rain
fall of several days past has been of
great advantage to the crops , and may
serve to prevent small grain from
sprouting In the shocks by giving It
a quick drying.

A bnso ball game by night ! There
s such n thing and Norfolk saw It
nst evening. It was moro the novel-
y of the thing than the prospects for
i good game that attracted ( Norfolk
out. but n consldcrnblo portion of It
vas there. The gnmo wns In a can-
as enclosure on the Olnoy squnro ,
orncr of Mndlson avenue nnd Second
street nnd n half moon , assisted by a
couple dozen of gnsollno lamps , made
i fair Imitation of day , so that the
mlloon-llko ball could bo seen nt
cast n portion of the time. The bnso
ml ) game at night was nil right fora
lovelty It was worth experiencing
> ut for a steady diet the avcrngo "fan"
vould kick nnd hnvo a right to.
Then , too , a truthful representation
of the nltnlr would serve to prevent
llsappolntmcnt. Dozens of people
went last night particularly to sco fif
ty arc lights In operation , strung up
n the nlr thirty-five feet and ope
rated by the management's own dy-
lame , nnd wore somewhat Inclined to
feel like they had been faked when
they saw thnt the light was furnished
> y a couple of dozen gasoline lamps
that made a fairly good light , but
were not arc lights lights thlrty-flve
feet In the air , run by the manage
ment's exclusive electricity-generating
ippnratus. It was llkowlso disap
pointing to some to pay their twenty-
flvo cents admission nnd find after
entering the grounds they were expected
pectod to pay an additional fifteen
cents for the privilege of sitting on
a narrow board duringtho game.
But for the play : It was of six-In
nings duration and was won by the
Norfolk team by a score of 11 to 10.
Bovco was In the box and Slsson be
hind the bat , and the entire local club
played hard and with the aid of en
thusiastic rooters succeeded In mak
ing the game qulto Interesting , The
locals had the disadvantage of never
having played by lamp light before ,
but they succeeded quite frequently In
finding the ball , nnd ns for errors , a
wet field nnd a whlto ball that quickly
turned a muddy brown , and the lack
of Hiitllclont light afforded ample ex-
cunts If there had been twice ns many.
The diamond was an abbreviated af
fair , to got It nil under the light , nnd
even then to be compelled to make n
slldo In the water and mud was of
moro or lesn frequent occurrence.
For the Redskins , Joe Glassarm was
In the box and Willie Afrald-of-Hls-
Face behind the bat. Chief Hugglng-
bear held down the third bag and wns
unjustly Indignant when Joe Phillips
of the locals told him with some em
phasis that holding n runner to his
base was not In this year's rules.
Charlie Yellowdog was short and
found n ball or two thnt went above
the lamps. They lacked ginger , but
might have developed some with a
few liberal bets on the side. The lo
cals were a plckcd-up nine but made
n fairly good team considering their
lack of prnctlce nnd other adverse In
cidents to the game.
The game seemed to be all the way
of the visitors until the last half of
the fifth when the locnls pounded out
five runs nnd led the Reds , but In the
first half of the sixth It was made an
even matter and when the locals went
to hat they needed one score to win on
nnd they got It.
