ball nme. niaveii at David City last
Saturdav. between the hish school i
teams of the above mentioned places, I
was a one exuiaisiun ql cue ar ox iduc
MM. and particularly showed marked
improvement on the part of Colum
bus. The scare resulted in favor of
David City to the extant of IS to 0,
which was dne to the fact that Coloa
bus was handicapped, by the absence
of two or khree regular players togeth
er with the decisions of a David City
umpire in zhe last half, who seemed
to be groping among the cob webs of
the post when a decision was required
relative to rules of rhe game, besides
being incased in a heavy armour of
local prejudice. Bus all is not lost
as another game with David City will
be plaved at Columbus Saturday,
October 8, and the home team brought
up to it3 normal strength by the ad
dition of the players absent at David
City together with the loyal support
of the Columbus people ought to start '
