Ten Innings of Sport.
Last Sunday was a red-letter day
to all true lovers of base ball, and
the game was one that will long be
remembered by the fans on the bay.
One of the many pleasing features
of the game was the lack of wrang
ling which characterizes and spx ils so
many contests. The day was a per
fect baseball day, warm enough so
that you did not need an overcoat,
and could yell air you wanted to
without catching cold and they all
had a chance to whoop it up, you j
bet. For eight innings the score
stood 2 to 1 in favor of the visitors,
in the first half of the ninth Elk
City managed to score another Tun,
making the score 3 to 1. In the
last half of the ninth Toledo man
aged to change the monotony of the ,
long string of goose eggs on the
score sheet by making two runs there- J
by tying the score. Toledo presen-1
ted Elk city with another cipher in !
the first half of the tenth inning
and made the much needed run in
the last half. Following is the
