Amin. N;i One of the hardest fought, games of the year will undoubtedly lie played at River Forest Saturday, between River Forest and tlie famous Leland Giants. The tirBt game between these two clulm went to the local team liy a score of ."> to 4 after a great batt.c in which the colored boys nearly won out. Every game that has ever been played between River Forest and the Giants has been hard fought and exciting clear through to the finish, and the game this week will no doubt be a repetition of the former contests. The belauds are playing the best ball of their career at present and can make any team in the business work for all the runs they get, Hall and Cam pell will be the battery for belauds men and either Skillin or McUill will pitch for the River Forests with Goldblum behind the bat. River Forest is even up in games won with all the park teams this season having won and lost one each to the (¡unthers, Logan Squares and West Ends, while with belauds men they have it on the col ored men for the present at least, having won the first game.
