The game was a tin-rifle cannonade as far as our boys were concerned, our team hitting the crack pitcher's delivery for a total of 43 bases and spoiling a new ball and bat. On the other side Blue Earth only earned one hit, but the. Bancroft pitcher took pity on them and a few over the platt: and let them make six scores.
