Tiabbs foil and dislocated his shoulder at the ball ground Friday. He supposed he had only strained it, and there was nothing done till next morning. When he called on the doctor he was informed that the shoulder was out of joint. Dr. Koneflck of Algona, was telegraphed for, and tho two doctors replaced it.

Lots of people attended the lecture on act count of tbe speaker being from Chjje, South America. Mrs, Wagner, of Burt, gave Mrs. Will Weisbrod a visit last Wednesday just o n ' account of the lecture, A horse trader was seen on our streets last week, He was a sharp one, ' • Jt seemed as if tbeir was ft train up to the north part of town last week, It was NeweJi Bros, with .their engine 7 and thresher, They intend to start BWB, They' will gy west to Jtorsythe first, We wish them good luck.

Bancroft excelled in fielding and .batting again and the Burt pitcher fanned out tho most men. The game was very close as will bo seen by tho score. One of the brilliant plays of the game was Tallman's assist to the second baseman of a wild throw. A great deal of money changed hands at both games, as Burt is always Willing to back its team, Money was not bet so freely on tho second game however, and much Bancroft money went without takers. There was considerable inexcusable kicking in both games by both nines, andin the last game Burt claimed that Ear Johnson had four strikes and the majority of tho crowd seemed to uphold the position, but neither the batter nor the umpire thought so. Some one from Burt sent an account of the game to the State Register and stated that this decision gave Bancroft the game, and that Ray Johnson' admitted having four strikes, which was not the fact. Not a. man was out as yet on the Bancroft side when this decisi ion was made and two scores were run in on this inning by Bancroft, besides Johnson's, which two scores would have won. the game any way. The score of the. second game was as follows: Bancroft,— 10 2 1 130 10 —9 Burt,— 2 020 1 1 0 0',1 —7 Umpires Walsh and Sherman; Scorers, Freeh and Shaifor. , . • ' Last Monday'evening a third game was arranged between Bancroft and Burt to be played at Aigona next Tuesday afternoon for$50a side. Algona is/to • hang up a purse. This game will be the best ever seen in void • Eossuth and the base ball crank a id others.who dp not see this game w.ill indeed miss a sight. The players as agreed upon for the .third game arc as follows: .:,, >.- • ••..,;-..,- '-.;.. '•..;. . Bancroft— Wasgatt, McLaurio, Mcr Laughlin, .Perkins, Huggett, Tallman, Barslpu, Johnson, Utley. Burt-Brush, Wilder, Shaeffer, McDonald, Owens; Boyd, Stow,'Belknap, Beard.' We would not be surprised if Bancroft were beaten, as they allowed Burt two different men and were only allowed one man themselves, but the boys are going to play hard ball and will do themselves and their town credit. Bancroft has won fiye victories on the diamond this year, defeating Swea City once,'Armstrong onco, Algona once and Burt twice. They have only been defeated twice, once by Swea City and once by' Forest City and Swea City combined. Hurrrah for the Bancroft team. , • , •• . tatAb MfAm AM AMfffAW btimffl Mjnfdrinatidfi in regard to iatids ia dwa, write te hitn, Algena.towa. OEO. Hi CLAKKfi, CHA8. A.
