A GOOD JOKE ON SOME ONE.
One of our prominent citizens
stepped into the Register office
Monday and told us that be had
seen it extensively advertised in
the East Oregonian that there
would be an excursion to Stan
field Sunday last, and that many
prominent citizens of Pendleton
would attend and hold a picnic.
The gentleman was at the depot
Sunday when the train came in
and tne only excursion party
aboard that he recognized was
James Kyle. The aforesaid citi
zen is wondering whether the
joke is on Jim or on the prom
inent citizens of Pendleton.

The game scheduled to come
off last Sunday on the Echo
Baseball grounds between the
Echo Reds and the Pendleton
Tigers failed to materialize, and
for some unknown reason the
Pendleton boys did not show up.
Not to be outdone and to avoid
not giving a game as advertised
the Echo boys phoned the Nolin
team who promptly appeared on
the scene and crossed bats
with the Echo Reds Sunday
A good crowd turned out to
witness the game which resulted
in a victory for the Echo Reds
by a score of 16 to 8.
The gate receipts netted the
boys someshing over $12.
