Checotah Takes The Game Checotah won over Eufaula in the base ball game Monday by the score of 8 to 2, Ballew was in the box for the locals and was not responsible for the runs the Eufaula boys made as his pitching was easily the feature of the game. Deere was on the slab for (/Eufaula and pitched a star game and had both pitchers received the support they should have had it would have been a 2-0 game in favor of Checotah. The Eufaula team has been muchly advertised as being the star ameture team of the B. I. T. but it was the general opinion of the crowd that the proposition that they tc ok hold of in Checotah was a little to hot for them to handle and one of the lookers on was heard to recommend Bond Switch, Oktaha and other towns Eufaulas size if she desires to keep her reputation- A writeup of the game would not be complete without mentioning Eufaula's human talking machine on first base, Dr. Dippy of comic section fame, there was something doing all the time in his direction, not ball playing, just talk and we recommend that Eufaula take him along in the future as a mascot only. Checotah's team has had very little practice several.of the boys not having been on the diamond this year and if the people of this community will give them the support and backing that they deserve so as to encourage them to get games we will have ! one of the best teams in the ; Indian Territory. Attended Republican fleeting N. G. Turk went to Guthrie Oklahoma Sunday to attend a meeting of the Oklahoma Republican central committee. The next meeting will be held the 30th and 40th of this month at Bartlesville where the Indian Territory and Oklahoma Republican Clubs will probably be con-colidated. j Ready for market ! In this issue of the Enquirer will be found the announcement of R. Y. Audd "the Peace King" in which he informs the public l that he has 4000 bushels of fine j Elberta peaches now ready for ; the market. J Mr. Audd's orchard is the largest peach orchard in the Territory and the fruit that he grows is equal to any grown in the Central States and takes second place only with the fine fruit of Cali-, fornia. I This large orchard is located within a half mile of Checotah j and furnishes employment for a i large number of people. | In former years Mr. Audd has i been shipping his fruit to markets j in other states but last year he changed the order and found a market almost entirely within the Territory and this year he will follow the same method as it has proven more profitable than' outside markets. Boy Hurt While hauling a load of dirt to the I. O. O. F. home Wednesday, Earl Napper one of the boys living there was thrown under the wagon and the back wheel passing almost over his body. Hs was quickly carried into N. G. Turks office and Dr. Reid made a hasty examination. Dr. Gardner soon arrived and had the boy carried to the Home. It seems as if the dirt, young Napper was sitting on gave way causing him to slip between the wheel. Dr. Gardner reports that there are no internal injuries and that today (Friday) he is much improved.
