Three Omues Played Here Last
Notwithstanding the fact that
Charlie Moore's aggregation of ball
, players were at Astoria battling
j with the salmon cuuticrs there were
I three games of ball in the city hist
Sunday. That is, some of it was
called base ball,

played on alleged game of ball at
Hill's park in the afternoon. In
fact there were two games. The

nut that Frakes-IJrewers game
was enough to make the national
sport die an awful death. Hoth
teams were about as fast as molas

playing was something fierce. Some
of the spectators stood it as long as
the fifth inning. Others sat the
game out. The agony ended by a
score of 12 to 10 in favor of the
The Brainard Cubs and Trunk
makers game was something better
thau the opening performance.
The Cubs took a brace and won
the game by the score of 7 to 2.

The address of Judge Frnzer of
the Portland Juvenile court was
well received. The "children's
judge" told the class that while the
class motto "We angle for the
honors and the sweets of human
life," was a good one, still they
should use care as to how the ang
ling was done, and that they should
above nil else learn and exercise
self control, as this was necessary
to secure respect.
