One fellow takes n club and on n lino, nnd another stands in front of him, nnd firci the ball back at him. Tlie chap xrilb the club hits back. Tlitt bill flies in the other direction. The first fellow drops the club as though he xras scared, nud runs like a pickpocket xx lib an M. P. after him. Sex eral fellows run after the bill: some- body catches it nnd fires it nt somebody else, vrbcn the chap who had the club Elops run- ning. Another follow then lakes the club, nnd the same man, who is called the pitches on him, firu.1 Ihe ball at him, and ho hits back, knocks Ihe ball, drops bis club und culs hia btick for Ihc first Half n diiion folloxvs ont on pickel duly scramble for Ihe ball. One reliibla B. B. is polled behind the club man, in case the club man misses the ball, lo sec that it don't go by and hit the Umpire. Wherl ohd fide is out Ihe other side goes in, and xvbcn both sides are out it is called nn innings. It is quite nn intelligent game, depending entirely on the Of your legs. The first principle of the game is running. AVhcri yon are "in" you run away from thu ball; xvhcn you arc "out" you run nfter it.
