Ashland 0 8 .000
The Grants Pass ball team accom
panied by about 20 of the local fans
went to Jacksonville last Sunday for
the second game this year with that
famous Jackson county team.- The
game was a little more closely con
tested than tbe game of a week ago,
the score being 5 to 3 in favor of
Jacksonville. The boys all played
pretty good ball, but like Jacksonville
a week ago, "it was their day off"
and this fact taken into consideration
with the old story "rotton deal"
what else could be expected? Losing
this same puts their percentage
down to a tie with Jacksonille
for second place each having .600 per
cent, while Medford now leads the
list, bnt the boys expect to get up to
their old plaoe at the top in a few
The A. A. O. and Medford ball
teams eross bats on the local A. A. C.
diamond this next Sunday. This is

esting games of the season as these

the R. R. Valley league and are fight
ing hard for first plaoe. The Ashland
team was supposed to play here this
Sunday bnt owing to some change in
the schedule their game has been post
poned. The Medford and Ashland teams
had their second game Sunday on the
Medford . diamond. Ashland again
losing by a score of 8 to 8, wbioh
puts Medford in the lead.
It is rumored that the Ashland team
has imported two new player from
Oalifornia ; one of them is expected to
do the twirling aot while the other,
will do the receiving. It is about
time they were doing something if
they intend to win any games this
season as they haven't woo a sane
thus far. - But-they have - not played
Grants Pass yet and they play their
first gam with Jacksonvilll this next
Sunday, so when they go the rounds
