Everett Institute on Top

Our base ball nine has crossed bats with the Junction City nine twice in the past week. On last Saturday our boys went to Junction City where both sides played a nice, clean game. But on account of the rain which fell just before the game began and the coolness of the weather, neither side could play well, and ran the score higher than it would have been. At the end of the ninth inning the score stood 44 to 22 in favor of Everett Institute. Messrs. Heard and Williams were the umpires. Our boys report a good time.

Yesterday the Junction City team came here and played us on our own diamond. A large number was out to see the game and purple and white was worn by most of them, especially the school girls, showing that our boys had their sympathies. Another nice and clean game was played; as can be seen from the score it was a more interesting game. Messrs. Avery Steele and C. H. Cherry were the umpires. At the close of the game the score stood 16 to 11 in favor of Everett Institute.

On next Friday there will be speaking by some Woodmen, a picnic given by the school and an other ball game between our boys and the Bernice nine. A hard game is expected, and everybody is invited to come and cheer his favorite nine.


THE GAZETTE, one dollar a year in advance.
