The Armstrong base ball team thought they had a soft snap when they cast their eyes on the Bancroft ball nine on the morning of the Fourth, and in fact the score stood 28 to 15 in the 8th inning, but in the 9th Bancroft woke up and began to play ball, making 1G scores in the one inning, and won the game easily. Bancroft was whitewashed three times and Armstrong four times. The score stood 31 to 25. Me- Laughlin pitched a superb game for Bancroft and shut out the Armstrong boys in the last two innings. Bancroft now has a much better ball team than ever before. This makes three games they have woii this season. Your correspondent had the pleasure of spending the Fourth at Jay. Grover's and to say that a good time was had is inadequate. There were about 1200 people present and the speaking by W. C. Dansou, E. B.Butler and Rev. Hawn was all good. The Burt Male Quartette came in for an extra share of commendation for their singing. The beauty about this celebration was that no one needed to be out in the sun, as Mr. Grover has one of the largest, if not the largest grove of artificial trees in the county. The celebrtaion was wasely, planned by those in charge and President of the Day Chipman saw to it that everything went off in proper shape.

The cutting oif of .the fruit supply is felt as a great hardship here. Gregg Sprick, a farmer living ten miles north of Wesley, who came here from Dakota last fall was in town Saturday. He had a wagon .fixed up with hay rake wheels, which he loaded up with binding twine and other goods. When about three miles on his way home his horses took fright and ran, overturning his wagon. Sprick was someway tangled up with it and went under the wagon and was dragged for some distance, until the team broke loose from the wagon. He was very badly hurt, his shoulder being putoutof joint and ho. received numerous severe bruises. Dr. Kin- •ney was called to treat his wounds, and he decided that Sprick must be gotten home the first thing. The Doctor got his man in his buggy and drove him to his home, where he did all for him that surgical skill could do, and left him in a comfortable condition. The Doctor thinks his patient will get along without serious trouble. Fred Corey seems to be meeting with first rate success at Britt, where ho has some five horses in training for the track. On the Fourth he took first money in the running race ;and second in the trotting. There will be a matinee Saturday, in which Mr. Corey's herses will take part.
