at short, got four i errors chalked
against him, and ' there ; was one
other that might have been
charged to Miller, but was given
Baird ' instead inasmuch as the
umpire had called the runner out,

dropped the ball, which was a dif
ficult bounder from Miller. Mike

the stick, making three safes, one
of which was a homerun and an
other a two-base .hit. Schack

; Due to the prevailing shortage
of pears and the subsequent high
prices for the fruit, orchards that
have, been neglected . in . recent
years are being picked clean of
all available fruit. . Prices' range
from $55 a ton for No. tfruit to
