Marshfleld Leaguers canter to

Young man evidently a ball fan.
Young lady there to learn the game.
The band strikes up a martial air
and the assemblage listens entranced.
Suddenly the music stops, there Is a
hush, broken at length by the Um

"Oh, John," echoes the maiden
above tho roar of the grand stand
and rooters on tho lines, "how can
that man tell that?"
John assumes a parental air.
"Why, my dear, he stands in a line
behind tho home plate and notes the
course which the ball takes after
leaving the pitcher's hands."
"Bing," goes a little single down
to short. Short grabs ball, shoots it
over to first. Runner and ball ap
pear to have anlvcd simultaneously.
"You'r out," says the umpire.
"O-oh," goes up a groan from the
"Rotten!" comes the answering
echo from tho. rooting line.
John's chorus part is interrupted
by tho maiden's soft insiste.it; "but
John, you never told me why that
man lias to stand beninci tne nome

John turned a pair of eyes from
which shone the diamond f.u-vor.
"Did you seo that. He was safe
by a milo. Rotten!"
"Dear, you never told me why tho
man lias to stand behind the home
plato to see tho ball."
"Oh, yes, yes, that's his position
"W-h-o-u-u! Good boy, Mickey. It's
good for three bases."
It looked as If tho sphero was
novor going to stop and tho grand
stand and the rooting lines yolled and
shouted as though they would send
It on by sheer will power. Every
body was wildly
"But, John, couldn't he stand be
hind tho pitcher's box just as well."
"Eh, oh.what d'you great work,
old boy. FIno, fine "
"But, John, he could couldn't he,"
Thoro were two men on bases and
two out. John's tense posture and
fixed gaze on tho batter told the story
of tho wild tumult of enthusiastic
ardor that was raging within.
"Couldn't ho, John?"
"What's that?" said John, never
taking his eyes off tho batsman.
"Ho could, couldn't ho?"
"Who could? What d'y'u mean?"
"Ho could stand somewhere elso If
ho wanted to, couldn't ho?"

Nobody could name one who could
execute the work, but several re
membered a hobo artist who came
through this country some years ago
and pointed a number of canvasses
ro'-"sentativp of Inal scenes. But
ho departed long ago, and owing to
his uncertain habits and roaming
propensities, Is not available at the
present time. This man's work,
while not noted throughout the
country, is of very fair execution,
and locally throughout all Oregon,
his pictures decorate one placo of
business and another, and he is re
membered well as a man who can
paint If he is sober. A great portion
of his work is found in saloons,
where the canvasses went In part
payment for boozo.
There Is no foundation in tho ru
mor that Charles Lee, who was as
sistant umpire in the game between
Bandon and Marshficld on Sunday,
was "fixed" bj Marshneid. Mr. Lee
was seen and questioned regarding
the rumor. He was not half so In
dignant as he shoufd have been and
said there was positively no truth in
tho story. He stated, however, that
ho thought Marshfleld needed aid
from some quarter and so he was
willing to help. It was learned on
tho outside that Mr. Lee received
money for umpiring tho game, but
not enough to promote the belief he
had performed for Marshfleld's
sharp notice he will discover an In
variable vein of sarcasm acenmnan"-
Ing the observation. And that leads A
some to the thought that Marshfleld
could afford a new town boll when
the llcciisi fro is raised to ?800 per
annum. But there will be time to
discuss that when the time arrives.
FRANCIS CLARKE ENTERS
It Is often remarked by visitors
that Marshfleld's curfew is a
screamer. But wo need not take
their word literally, for If one takes
Hon. Francis II. Clarke, formerly
of St. Paul, Minnesota, but for the
past year well known In Marshfleld,
and Hon. J. W. Snover, formerly of
Condon, this state, have formed a
partnership for tho practice of law,
with ofllces In tho Rogers building,
on the corner of A and Front streets
in Marshfleld. The firm name will
lie Clarke & Snovor.
Mr. Clarke was for sixteen years a
successful lawyer In St. Paul and
became known throughout Minnesota '
for his defense in Uo murder cases
of State vs. Williams nnrj nlso State
vs. Fellows. He was equally re
sourceful as a civil lawyer and has
gained a reputation as an author,
writer of magazine articles and plat
form speaker. Ho says he came to
the coast to escape thirty below zero.
Mr. Snover Is also eminent In his
profession and came hero from Con
don, Oregon, where he has been one
of the leading lawyers of Central
Oregon for many years. Tho firm
is a strong one and both members
aro popular and capable and will do
well in this section.
