Certainly no better gam** of base ball, none more intensely interesting, ana in tile closing innings, Bone more exciting was ever played In this region I than that of the Hovland’s against the Big Boston last Friday on the new grounds in this city. That they are Both crack clubs is now admitted at home and abroad, but the Ilovland’s have had credit for containing better players, and so tile general expectation was that they would easily win. Both clubs, however, had plenty of enthusiastic backers, and at the call of Umpire Wilkinson to “play ball” there vpsan anxious interest among the respective partisans as to every anticipated move. Owing to objections to Duryea being allowed to play with the Boston’s, w hich he was finally allowed to do, all bets were declared off, and the game commenced with the Boston’s at the bat. They scored a goose egg; the Ilovland’s followed with one tally, and then w’ere compelled t*> yield to the Boston's, who OL finished everybody with a run of eight. This proved to lie a hoodoo for the Ilovlands, for they only laid goose eggs in their live next innings. In the tilth inning tin* Bostons made two more, and this was their ast, for in the four last efforts they failed to score anni. Tho Ilovlands rallied in the three last innings aud scored three, one and four. and it looked as though they were playing on their second w ind with victory in the air. With one tally more needed to tie the score, however, Zook sent a line ilyer into the left field which Duryea embraced and their game was up. But it was mighty exciting and wits alto gether a very pretty game. Notable plays wen.* mad** by Opsahl, an over-the-fence home run, Morgan, Barragon, Duryea and Hayes, and both batteries did exceptionally line work. Another game will be played by these popular home clubs a little later iii the season, and they w ill be sure to draw an admiring crowd. Following is the score; rn rn Jfcoefeester Light ami Puri Co.

There have been some good games in Albert Lea and neighboring cities but there never has been a really great game until the Ilovlands met the Northwoods outlie association grounds in this city last Monday. It was certainly wonderfully well played and w its equal to most of those recorded by the league clubs. It is very rare that so Use ami it promises to be a capital game. The gate receipts at the first game were close to $35, and .it the second fM.% the admission in Ixith instances i being 15 aud IO cents, ladies free.

They are to be placed in different parts of the city; and regarding the rate proposed, it is very low, in comparison with the prices paid by other cities. We have the Rochester Post of last week in which were published the propositions submitted by different companies for •JOO eandle flower are sheet lighting, and we make the comparison below: ..........|IUQ  . _ . ....   120 1.en ll. Wedge, R*>riif**t**r.................. mo Austin Electric Light Co.............  *« Our citizens had a good opportunity to s*>e the workings of the arc lights during the encampment, and all must agre** that they an? vastly superior to the kerosene lights. In fact our present lighting system is a failure. The street lights aet as a faint glimmer to see the surrounding darkness by. Where the electric light is a brilliant penetrating light, the little fire-bugs on th** corners throw out their faint rays only about four yards. If you figure th** actual caudle power furnished by th** lights now used and compare it with 15 2,0u-cfuidle power electric lights, you will find that th** city is pa ing several times as much per cand power for th** kerosene lamps as the are lights would cost. Some might be inclined to kick on th** additional cost to the city of th electric lights over the present ones, and the consequent increase of taxes Our present expense for lighting the city is from $?()UtO $850 per year. The electric light which will illuminate tile city much better, would cost 81,000. Now figure it up aud see what you proportion of additional tax would bf on 8150 to $300 per year. It is such a very small matter that no man with common sense would ever rake it ap as '#'«* 8nve an argument. It is too small to talk about.

I excellent a club aa the Xorthw’oods is shut out, but that was the fate meted out to them, the score standing ti to 0 iii favor of the Ilovlands. .Each club had a remarkably strong battery, Williams of the Northwoods being consid ered by many the equal of Darkness, who pitched for the Ilovlands, but the catcher of th© latter club was the great man of the game, his work being simply faultless. Opsahl did great work;he scored an-over-the-fence, home-run hit, taking two men home with him, and Briggs made as tine a play in the right held as was ever seen on a diamond field, .standing far back he caught a ily, sent it through the long stretch to the catcher who put a man out with it in the nick of time. It was brilliant and made him a hero of the game. The score is as follows: HOVLAND MRK. CO.

There was a big crowd in attendance, Northwood having sent a large delegation, and a more enjoyable game was never witnessed in the state. Mr. Hovland is entitled to much credit for his enterprise in arranging the game, and deserves thanks of every lover of the noble game for his splendid management and success in originating the plans for th** season’s sport, and for his liberality and heartiness in contributing to its maintenance, it is a good advertisement for his house, and it pays, but he is not animated done by that idea; lie is public-spirited, generous, and is always ready to promote any worthy enterprise that will redound to the credit of Albert Lea, and furnish genuine enjoyment to her citizens. The next games will occur to-day between the Ilovlands and the Forest City club at Lake Mills, and between tin* Big Boston and Northwoods at Northwood. Many have gone to those towns front here to witness the games. On the lith the Ilovland’s will play the Rockford's during the excursion, THE CITY SCHOOLS.
