Court House Gang Bumpad.
Before a good natured crowd of about
200 people who gathered near Peter
Schmidt's mill oa Shell Creek last Sun
day, the famous Court Houe Originals
met their Waterloo after a well played
game of ball by a score of 15 to 10 at the
hands of the Shell Creek Sluggers.
The score ran close from beginning,
and not until the ninth inning was
played did either side have a sure mar
gin to win. Peter Schmidt, the manager
of the Shellcreekers hs heen hoping
tho whole summer that his players could
gel a crack at the "g-ing'' and he got it
Sunday pro;er,and the unbroken record
the ''gang" has boasted for seven years
past has been surely shattered, and all
on account of running up against a snag
too hard to break.
The features of the game numbered
many among them a spectacular catch
of a high lly by Captain Jerry Carrig of
the Originals, the base running of Fred
Roberts, the pitching of Arnold Schmidt
for Shell Creek, and the "rooting" of
Treasurer Becher and Henry Rodehorst.
The losing of the game for the "gang'
is luid at the feet of Henry Lachnit, who
it is claimed went to sleep at his post in
enter field and allowed a lly. to drop,
it:-! while he was running at large midst
a bunch of cattle linding the ball Shell
Creek scored three runs.
The players were:
Originals Wm. Kurt, Jerry Carrig.
Joe Stovicek, C. J. Carrig, Lou Lachnit,
Henry Lachnit, Fred Roberts. Otis Be
cher, Louie Glur.
Shell Creek Vic Moschenrors. Geo.
Hcliv;:nk. Adam Baily, Etnil Winter,

While the Court House Originals
were being drubbed by Shell Creek, the
same afternoon a bunch of ball players
drove to Columbus from "Fizzle Town"
and won a game from Bray's sluggers,
Columbus, et.al. Score 11 to 14. Some
of the locals deny all knowledge of the
circus, while other claim that Maxfield
Elias had on one of bis streaks of batt
ing and tore up all kinds of dust around
third and home plate. Umpire Brown
ing was not rotten in his decisions, bat
we have failed as yet to hear that much
for the game.

Farmers vs. Shell Creek.
In an eleven inning game of fast ball
tho Farmers won a hard fought battle
Sunday, the 1st, from Shell Creek's fast
team at Dan Bray's diamond, one mile
west of Columbua. The game was full
of ginger frqm ho first and the boys
thoroughly demonstrated that farmers
can play ball and play it fast too, with
out the usual rag chewing that general
ly makes it unpleasant for spectator and
player. Both teams were out to win and
the game looked like a cinch for Shell
Creek until the last of the 7tb. With
Bray op first, there was something do
ing suddenly and three of Capt. Moore's
men came across the platoand the score
stood 4 to 3 in favor of the up-countty
lads. The Farmers scored again in the
eighth and the ninth inning closed 4 to
4. The tenth showed no improvement
ia the score, although Knrt reached
t iird only to be caught by the farmer
l.id who always makes it miserable for
a I who get off too far from 3d sack.
The eleventh opened up with Capt
Schmidt's men at bat but L Bossow
took all three into camp with his cork
screws and the Farmers were again at
the bat, with Brannigan to lead off who
promptly stole second after his infield
fly was juggled around. L. Bossow
came up next and the way he swatted
the old sphere to deep center caused
general conuueut in Capt. Moore's camr-.
Brannigan scared and the hardest fought,
battle of i lie year . nt to the Farmers.
Next Sunday the Farmers play Fizzle
town, a fast aggiegation across the river
at the Columbus diamond and every
body is invited free of charge.
