PRINEVILLE AdAIN SCOOPED.
Loses Fourth (lame to Hcnd by Score
of 8 to II.
The I'rineville baseball team
helped itself to the mustard again
last Sunday, coming out to" the
Hend diamond and accepting de
feat by the local wonders by the
swore of 8 to it. It was a very
good game, though the Hend vic
tories had Ixxoiue so monotonous
that it dulled somewhat the edge
of public interest and was also re
flected in the work of the players.
Hilyeti, the Hend pitcher, controlled
the situation, as he had done be
fore. Weymouth continued very
satisfactory service as umpire.
Here is the record by innings:
