doesn’t look like either a Fireman or
a Lion, being constructed more along
the lines of a nail keg, so the Fire-
men suggested he play with the
Lions; the Lions insisted on his lin-

finally chosen as manager and key-
noter for the Firemen.

Undoubtedly the most costly wine
in history was consumed by the King
of Wurttemberg about 1875. The 240
bottles had been stored for 250 years,
and the expense of keeping the cel-
lar, the rise in money value, taxes
and interest increased the actual in' ^
vestment per bottle from $1.13 to'
for a “single.”)

All his life, Joe Wise has been be-
sieged with a-desire to pitch a game
of baseball, but due to unfavorable
circumstances, this privilege has here-
tofore been denied him. This time,
however, being manager of his team,
there was nothing to prevent his
mounting the mound (pitcher’s box)
for the Lions. So with Lanky Bron-
stad behind the bat, he proceeded to
toss his best offerings. As luck
would have it, this happened to be
zero hour for the Firemen, so they
became imbued with the spirit of '76,
and uncorked a barrage of hits into
the first and second lines of the Lions
defense, lasting four or five innings.
A survey of the field after the smoke
of battle had cleared away revealed j
a shell-shocked, exhausted Lion army ;
but no casualties. The only Fireboys j
who failed to get four or more hits
off Joe were Sanders Aanenson, Ed
Hauke, Andrew Dahl, Newt Fallis,
John Godager, Rudolph Gloff and j
Painter Nelson, they were not play-
