Says the Forest City Summit: Tho Bancroft correspondent for the ALGONA REPUBLICAN in writing up tho game between that town and Swea City says, that tho latter town mot the Bancroft team "with five of the best players from the Forest City learn and Ames, the Minneapolis Western Leagne pitcher." Said correspondent is wrongly informed in regard to "our Jim." Mr. Ames is a Forest City boy who was born and raised in this town and has never lived anywhere else. He never pitched for the Minneapolis team and never played with any league, except the college league in which he pitched for the Iowa College team for a few games last season. But all the same Ames can play ball like six or seven and Bancroft is not entitled to the discovery of tho fact, for there are at least fifty other towns in Iowa and Minnesota that could testify to the same thing.
