' Mftynnnl went after the game ao If It was th'elr Intentions to nllow no ar-1 Ruments to arine. hut after the Initial fttpnza. young Mr. Joe Ifopkluo proved to be In a mont diaputntive mood nnd the lato return« Indicate that ho had considerably the bent, of the argument. Maynard scored their flint and only tnllv In the flrKt inninpr and after that '•"ent their time unavalllncly In en-deavorlne to piu hh in which direction ¡toe Hopkins Rinntfl were apt to dodse. I That they proved more or less bnd i Btiessers. however. Ib nliown from the fact that 12 of them whiffed throe ttnie° and retired to tlio Reclunlon of the bench. Foley, our own hope and pride, worked like a manter for five lnnln<?B. hut In the sixth Concord pot to him for four iiafe hits, whlc.i with a basn n balln resulted In three runs and the one blR Maynard tally, which had loomed no larRo for five innings suddenly shrunk Into very small pronor-' tlons. In the elfihth, a short revival, of the hitting fever resulted In one more run for tho visitors, while May-.! nard remained runlesH. The score shows that hotli pitchers acnultted themselves well, but In Justice It must bo said that. Hoppy had a little the best of It. Foley weakened perceptibly tn the sixth and In addition to being found freely at times, gavo Ave bases on balls. Joe complained of not feeling well before the game, which may explain why ho was a trifle off. Foley Is so good, however, that even when he Isn't Roinsf Just right, he Is bettor than the average pitcher nnd nil In all Saturday, he pitched a good enough game to win had the Maynard batters been getting to Hopkins right. Jiohlnd Foley was some of the finest fielding, that has ever been seen on a Maynard field, the contributing artists Including Brayden and Kllllnon In particular and Ilainvlllo, Piper. Wood and Rynn as assistants extraordinary. Tho limelight also switched (for a time on Concord, Bulger and Kimball coming through with classy stops. Joe also did a little fielding on the side, which was more or less creditable. The credit of the victory must be lsdlgned to Hopkins, who went through the game with all the coolness and cleverness of a big league star. Ho got every man on tho Maynard team on strikes and pitched his way deep Into the hearts of the Concord rooters. Behind the bat T)Be supported him superbly and proved to he a wonderful young catcher. The rest of the nine nlso came through with great baseball. The one screamingly spectacular feature of the game was the stop made by Bulger In the eighth, when Ryan connected with a Hoppy slant and smashed one through short, uul-ger started for the hall, hut seeing it was going to get by, threw himself full length tn a flying dlvo for the ball and came up with tho Bphere in Ills hand, retiring the runner by a fast throw. Willi the great worit oi Hoppy and the hitting of Powers, Dee, Hopkins t'o KlmEalt, tho gamo Was all Concord and wo herewith doff our hats. Maynard went after the «amc In the tlrat after Concord had" been retired. Ryan opened with a hit but was out at second on Piper's attempted sacrifice. Wilder got a llf® on Varley's orror and Wood came through with a nlco hit, scoring Piper. Tills was the only scoring done by Maynard in the gaino, as Persons and Brayden ended the inning by striking Out. In tho second Foley retired Dee. Kimball and Shepard on strikes and Mitynaixl went down one, two, three. In tho third McHilgli fanned, Hoppy wont out Foley to Wood, Varlev drew a pass but O'Connell closed the Inning by fanning. In the. Maynard half It was one,, two, three and all on strikes. In the fourth. Powers went out. Brayden to Wood, both making nice stops, Dee drew a pass, Kimball Hied to Brayden, who made another fine cntch and De® was out stealing second. Woods opened for Maynard with a nlco stng'e and was advanced to second by Person's bunt. Brayden grounded out to Powors and Woods took third. Kimball saving a run for his team by a gr«at catch of Powers' high throw. Foley fanned and a canco to score was gone. The fifth passed quickly, a thrUllug catch by Ralnville enlivening the play and then arrived, tho sixth and defeat. Hoppy opened with a clean hit to center, Wboda ouui» a fine running catch of Varley's foal fly, O'Connell was passed and Powers came through with i •«(«. lirim.* »coring Hoppy. Dee came, through with another hit, scoring O'Connell and Powers scored on Kimball's fine drive. Bulger grounded out, FOley to Woods. Wilder and Person's both hit safely in the Maynard batf. hut the lilts were wasted and a fine chance to score passed-up.

CREIGHTON Latter Has Built Up Big Business In Maynard in 25 Yearo A very Important business deal was i>Tiuay evening, when P. H. purchtrcd 'If a"-- b-irin<-nr. conducted for the past mi - vr V1 a century by G,ior-r.> II. "r-ir-hlnn. The store ii one of the. mrrt un to date fhse r: tiihli-hmcnti In a:.v 0f tlio small towns tn New Eflcland and under the management of Mr. Murphy should continue to b" the rame de-Tiendabln establishment. Mr. Murphv hnn been in the em-'»loy of Mr. Crelshton for the past five vearn. during which time he has gained adequate knowledge of the retail shoe business In all Its details. He Is one of tho most prominent nnd popular young men of tho town nnd nothing but bucccbb will follow him In his business undertakings If his past, endeavors are any criterion. He at present Is serving his third year as a member of tho board of overseers of the poor and has proved an efficient town official in every way. Mr. Murphy Intends to merit the pa-tornage of the public by keeping faith with them right to tho letter and with a business based on this principle he Is pretty apt to find sucoesR camped on his trail. Mr. Murphy's many friends will wish him tho best of good luck In his new understanding. Mr. Creighton, who now retires from business, rounded out his 2 nth vear of business at which time The Enterprise published a story dealing with Ills long and honorable business career. Mr. Creighton feels that he Is entitled to a good long rest after lits close attention to business for so many years. He bespeaks for Mr. Murphy the same kind consideration which was always given him by the public anil through The Enterprise nB tures his patrons of the kindly feeling *io has for them at this time. Mr. Creighton left Tuesday for a trip by water to Norfolk, Baltimore and other places. Mr. Murphy took posseaslon of the store Friday and is now actively engaged in preparing for n big business this fall when he will have a bigger and better line than ever. pcrson! desirous of becoming competent and successful Accountants, Book-keepers, Stenographers, Secretane* or Commercial Tcacheis, with auur&nce of et^pioyme&t. «nil find in the i BRYANT* & STRATTON COMMERCIAL SCHOOL BASEBALL NOTES PLUMBING Steam and Hot Heating WELL PLAYED GAME As Steve Brodle would say, "You gotta hand it to Concord." Their victory on the 4th was of course aided by a slip up or two on the part of Maynard plnyern, but Saturday the win was as clean cut and decisive as baseball will allow tor. The score would Indicate a pitcher's battle to a casual observer, but as a matter of fact, Hopkins had considerably the better or It, as a number of drives la helled safe wero scooped in by the energetic fielders in the Maynard uni formB. No pitcher can expect to get by safely all the time and Foley has to ho touched up. occasionally, Just as any of tho great stars of the game liavo to go up against It. All In all, ho Is ono fine pitcher, however, and we have yet to see the twirler who has anything on him. He got ten men on strikes, but gave flve bases on halls and wns hit safely seven times. Hoppy gavo one base on balls, got 12 on strikes and allowed six hits. Bulger contributed something to the Joy of conflict by his stop of Ryan, which was a la Maranvllle. Our friend, Mr. Brlclt Wilder, late of Pitt8fleld, played some swell game and Manager Jack; Zellar of Pittsfleld would have so admitted were he pros ent. Jadlt may be sorry some day. Bravdeti pulled Off a stop or two that was attired in the clothes of sen Rationalism. Brayden 1b having n line year this season and tho hot corncr guardians that have anything on him have yet to appear. Rvan is developing Into a cloae re semblance to Willie Keeler In his palmv days and If our memory serves us rightly, Wee Willlo was something of a good one. An echo answers, Ab yes. Killinen is approaching tho all star class with the speed generally at tained by tho Empire state- express. He seems to get better every day and Is a worker every tnlnuto of tho game. Foley fields his position nicely and is n fine all around ball player In addition to his prowess da a hurler. Jim Varley hasn't played much ball of late, but Is the same classy player as when he shone effulgently for Lincoln. Dee gives promise of being a wonderful ball player If ho continues to develop. He Is only a youngster and lias everything, including a wise old head. Hopkins surely pitches great hall against Maynard. He w§8 at h s best Saturday and seemed to. bo pitching a pea over the plate Instead of a ball. Concord Junction trimmed the crack Lynnhurat team Saturday. \\ "> notlco in the Globe that the Lynn-hurst team was without its; regular battery.

Tho South Barre team lias already cinched the league ponnnnt and has defeated some of the strongest teams In the state and is considered by many crlUcs to bo the best team In the state at present. If this Is the ease, the local team has begun to how real form an the lendern were compelled to eitend themselves to (lie utmost to put the game in the won column. The home team was up against Smith and Brown, who are by far. the two best bowlcra in the lcaguo, and did exceptionally fine work against them. Iienyon was tho star of the game, doing the remarkable feat of taking four wickets in six balls, something almost unprecedented. Waterhouse made a remarkable catch of a fly ball, which was headed for the woods, winning well merited applause for his clevernoBS. Cuttell was the batting star for the locals and Hargreaves also batted well. For the visitors the bowling of Smith nnd Brown was conspicuous and Wood carried of? tho batting honors. Tho local team haR taken a decld' ed brace In its play and should make the goliiR strong for Its opponents for tho remainder of tho season. Since Its rejuvenation much interest manifested in tho gamo and in unotli er season somo exceptionally good sport will be seen here. The local team plays a league game In burg Saturday.
