TI- tonka won tri-e east county tournament played last Friday and Saturday and the west half teams played at Burt. The affair is sponsored by the county schoolmasters' association. One-Slded Scores The first afternoon at TItonka. Lcd- yard was snowed under by Indians, 17 to 0. Titonka played airtight ball be- Mnd the stellar pitching 1 of George Bockelman and Lefty Rockow, who held the boys from L«dyard to a no-hit game. Saturday morning Titonka defeated LuVcrne, 23 to 3, Bancroft defeated Wesley, 8 to 7. and Titonka defeated Bancroft, 18 to 2. The Bancroft-Wesley game was f he highlight of the tournament. The game went ten Innings. During the first four Innings, Wesley got to Welp for seven runs, but in the last half of the fifth, Bancroft tallied six times on a combination of three hit's, thr^e v.-r-lks and two errors. Wesley's battery was McCall, Erdmann and Llcktetg. Five Play at Bart The west county teams playing at Burt were Lone Rock, Fenton, Grant, Bwea City and Burt. Burt establ'fhed its supremacy after strong competition. The Burt boys, It will be rcmsmbi-rsd. set a record last year that tho other county teams will have to work hard to match, when they went to th-3 state tournament and nearly upset the dope bucket In grand style. They are out to repeat, but Judging from the. Titonka scores, will run Into some real competition. Due to a conflict with this paper's press schedule, the results of the county championship Wednesday afternoon will be Ivsld over until next week.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes* But Brunette Won Match The pen Is mightier than the sword: and (he brunrtlto Is mightier than the blonde—at least so some 150 or so gentlemen fotfnd when they attended a good, old fashioned "rassHng" mateh In the I. O. O. F. ban hero on Thursday of last week, and watched *wo young ladies of 20 years wrangle each other about the mat. The twwfe between the ladies was one of four matches, and seemed to be the most enjoyed b(p the spectators. According to word reaching our office, there wax a wild front row of bald heads about the ring, although we catinot vouch for the truth of taie statement. It seems that thfe blonde, although losing the match, was the big favorite with the men, which just goes to show that men Jntajr prefer blondes but brunettes are better masters. Rumor has it that on one occasion' the blonde was pitched bodily pnt of the ring! (they were using the Texas rales), and the place was flooded with gentlemen offering thte lady assistance back Into the arena. In one of the masculine bouts, it seemsi that one of the boys was also pitched out and showed some relufctance to get back Into the swim, so one of the audience, himself no poor rassler, gralbfted the fellow and tossed him back to where his opponent conld grab «*>«>«• hold and again throw hbn out. There were no carnalities, and the matches seemed to have been much enjoyed. Frank Bauers of Swea City, a well knnfom wrestler himself, engineered the local matches, which created a graW deal of comment. As the story goes, a young Tawyer (not from Algona) and a bachelor rewarded the brunette's victory by offering to take the lady hohw, and was accepted.
