The outlook for a fair crop of corn s good in northern Iowa. Rain is needed and the shower Monday morn- ng while not as much as was needed lelped some. Oats are about har- ested and farmers report them very good. It was feared that the hot weather would damage them greatly but it seems that they were well filled before the heat struck. Early potatoes are reported a fair crop but ate potatoes need a lot of rain in order to make a good crop. Fruit was badly hurt by the drouth and the apple crop is very short. Plums are also a failure, due probably to a late fros last spring. The berry crop was also cut short by the hot and dry weather Pastures look fairly good but need rain soon. Threshing will start in some sections the last of the week. ••Winer Lakota Girl Weds at Iowa City. Lakota, July 22.

WHEN HUTCHINS PL A YED BASE BALL Algona Man tells of Game Played at Hufcfcoldt fifty-four fears Ago. WON THE (JAMS BY PUT "True Bines" Played boldt Mrtdocs During" Rainstorm and Wo« the Game. Humboldt Republican: The following letter from one who signs himself as "C.B.H." of Algona telling how a base ball team from that town won a ball game from the famous old Modocs of Humboldt, will be of Interest to Hum* boldt people. Especially will it appeal to the old timers, for there is at this time several members Of the old Modoc team in Humboldt.. The letter from Algona that bears the caption of "Can a Ball Player Win a Game by Getting Out?" follows: : ^- • "Most people if asked that question would probably say no, but it can be done. It has been done, and I did it once. It was a long time ago, and while it may have been done by others many.times since, I have never seen an account of or heard of its being done. It was way back In 1876. The True Blues, of Algpna, of which I was a member, were playing the Modocs of Humboldt, at Humboldt. "The only method of transportation, between the two places in those days, was by team of horses. The game was called hi the morning so that we might have the afternoon to drive home. The weather ! Was cloudy with a sprinkle of rain'now and then, and as I remember the game was suspended for a while by a slight shower. With Algona ahead and at bat with two men out in the last half of the fifth Inning it was my turn to bat. A heavy -cloud accompanied by lightning and thunder was approaching~from the west, which, hi all probability would put an end to tl|? game in a very few minutes. Dr. Sheetz, no player, but an ardent base ball fan, was standing near the home plate. He called me to one side and said, "If you get out Algona wins the the game." I saw the point, went to bat, struck a nice ball,'almost directly over second base, which was perfectly good for one base, but I did not stop at first base and ran on toward second, but before I reached there, the Modoc center fielder had recovered the ball, thrown it to the second baseman, who put: me out Almost immediately a hard: shower set in which precluded any, further playing, but five full innings/had been played and Algona won. : give Dr. Sheetz, full, credit for the luggestion. He furnished the brains and I furnished the muscle, to carry out'the'idea. Although a good many years have passed since I, play.ed my ast game of base ball,'r still feel/an riterest in the game, and would like to know'If such Instances as related by me happen often during the many hoiisand.ball games that are played •early'In the United States. 4 Algona^Iowa^JUl^-10, 1930, State Park Has Many Picnickers, Park Custodian Paul Wille reports approximately 1800 visitors in the Ambrose A.
