The Canyon Nine Defeated Last
Saturday by a Score of
19 to 6.
On Saturday last the Canyon
base ball team and their fans
came into our little city for the pur-
pose of crossing bats with the Here-
At about 1 o'clock p. m. Umpire
J. M. McGlothlin called the game
and the players took their respec-
tive places, Hereford taking the
By the excellent work of Here-
ford's battery, Allan Bell and Will
Mclnnis, and the splendid support
given by the basemen and fielders,
Canyon was given goose eggs up to
the seventh inning, during which
they managed to get three scores.
In this inning also occurred the
most brilliant feature of the game
when Hereford's left fielder, Eu-
gene Dyer, made a splendid catch
and a wonderful throw to First
Baseman, Martin McCracken, a
distance of nearly 300 feet, making
a double play.
During the next two innings the
visitors succeeded in getting three
more scores, the game ending in the
first half of the ninth inning, Here-
ford winning by a score of 19 to 6.
We regret that the score card was
destroyed, thus preventing our
publishing of the score in tabulated
It is hardly necessary to add that
the visitors from Canyon were
gentlemanly to a marked degree,
anc" showed their appreciation of
the treatment accorded them by the
Hereford boys, and we can unre-
servedly say "Come again."
Some timely advice given to bor-
rowers of newspapers is given by the
Kansas City Journal in the shape of
warning like this: A man who was
too economical to take this paper
sent his little boy to borrow the copy
taken by his neighbor. In his haste
the boy ran over a $4 stand of bees
and in ten minutes looked like a
warty summer squash. His cries
reached his father, who ran to his
assistance and failing to notice a
barbed wire fence, ran into that,
breaking it down cutting a handful
of jflesh from his anatomy and ruin-
ing a $4 pair of pants. The old cow
took advantage of the gap in the
fence and got into the cornfield and
killed herself eating green corn.
Hearing the racket, the wife ran,
upset four-gallon churn full of rich
cream into a basket of kittens,
drowning the flock. In the hurry
she dropped a $7 set of false teeth.
The baby, left alone, crawled thro'
the spilled milk and into the parlor,
ruining a brand-new $20 carpet.
During the excitement the oldest
daughter ran away with the hired
man, the dog broke up eleven set-
ting hens, and the calves got out
and chewed the tails of four fine
shirts. Subscribe for this papsr.—
A good town is one where the
farmer and the laborer spends his
money with the merchant for every-
thing he can obtain there; where
citizens help to encourage every-
thing that tends to the town. The
home merchant is the man who
helps pay for the streets whereon
you walk, the schools wherein your
children receive their education,
the cnurch in which you worship;
his name usually leads all subscrip-
tion papers. He is a man who can-
not afford to swindle you; he sticks
to you through thick and thin.
These are only a few reasons why
you should patronize the home mer-
chants. By doing this, business
becomes lively and the town prosper-
ous and more pleasant to live in.
For a business man to say to the
advertising solicitor : "Oh ! goodness,
no; it's too dull to advertise now—
wait until times pick up a little," is
equivalent to a very sick person say-
ing to a physician : "Oh ! no, doctor,
I can't take any of your medicine
now; I'm sick. Wait until I get
better and then I'll take it." When
the patient gets well—if he ever does
—he will not be in need of medicine.
The time to advertise is when the
need of stimulants is the greatest,
and that is when business is dull.
Rev. Charles Lotton, the Cumber-
land Presbyterian divine, preached
two interesting sermons last Sunday.
At the evening service there were
several additions to the church.
