For thrilling interest saturday s game had All previous Diamond records in Danville faded old Gray Beard fans who have been going to base Hall games Here since is Foo said so. Even tin $10,000 beauties who were battling for the worlds championship out in Pittsburg did no to serve up the yell in a do cig kind of Ball that was played by the All stars and the Danville stars on saturday. It was a game of remarkable features All the Way through chief among which was the pitching of Cov Aleksie who for fourteen innings held at his mercy the heaviest hitters of the Susquehanna league Aud then with two out in the final session made the drive which when erred by Ash brought in the winning run. The extraordinary prowess of the big pole was never More fully Aud satisfactorily exemplified than in saturdays game. When it is told that he had lit Trike outs gave no bases on balls and allowed hut two hits the Story of his work is but partly told. In addition to his strike outs he figured in six additional put outs several at critical moments. Of All the Star hitters who faced him there was hut one Nautie Oke a third sucker. Schmanski who was Able to locate a a Pinkie so delivery and lie made the All stars Only two hits a single and a i Home run. I in a game such As saturdays when i every player on the team accepted his a chances in Brilliant fashion it is difficult to place laurels on any particular head. But after Coveluskie probably came Uin Lauf and Thomas As candidates for second and third honors. Tin Little strident voiced Short Stop whose encouraging remarks to tin Pitcher can always be heard above the loudest Din a if rooting just lit rally at Yin alive. For the first five innings Quot Bucko and a Pinkie a with the assistance of Thomas at first retired All of the 15 All Star hatters. A a Bucko so nine eau yes during the game were accepted without an error. And his fielders Choice two stolen bases and score in the fourteenth gave Danville tin decision. Thomas in add Tiou to his steady playing All during the game made tin most sensational individual play of the Day when one handed Ami Oil the jump in pull Cal Down hint s drive Over first base saving by his remarkable catch what would have surely been a two Bagger. But then is one Man. Whose work is oftentimes forgotten tin Man who stands lie hid tin Bat and for fourteen innings becomes the target for Covell skies fusillade. Quietly but with never lagging vigilance he a there with the goods on every play dust covered and sore with continued Pound ing and every Fau at the game feels that tin team is being backed up by a Tower of strength when Dooley a lie hid tin Bat. 44 All stars batted one of the most noteworthy features of the game was tin fact that during tin fourteen innings hut two extra All Star batters came to the plate making a total of 44 men upon whom Covele Skie smiled when the minimum was 42. In but three innings did All Star footwear so ii the cushions. Once in the fourth when Schmanski drove his Home run Over the Center Field Fence again in tin tenth when Livengood a error and Shemanskis hit gave the proceedings a dubious aspect for a while and for the last time in the thirteenth when tier ringer crossed first and lived but a few seconds to be caught out at second. From the Danville Bench after two uneventful chapters Danville took her first tally in the third. Hire presented Dooley with a pass to first and the Catcher Pirp joined second while Metzler was at Bat the latter flying out. Hess drove one to Short which was fielded to catch Dooley at third and failed. With Dooley on third Livengood hunted and was thrown out at first while Dooley scored on the squeeze. Umlauf struck out. In the fourth fifth sixth seventh and eighth the Danville went Down one two three. In the ninth the crowd came Down to the ropes and yelled for that winning run but the noise seemed to put the Shin boy on his Mettle for Hess and Livengood first two up both failed. Things began to look up however. When Umlauf Podix a a Nice hit into Center Aud went to third on Beard s drive Over the right Field Fence hut Coveleskie a roller to Shik put off scoring aspirations for that innings. After that Danville began putting men on base at frequent intervals and continued on 4th Page. A the problem of existence Quot the members of Montour Castle no. 18 1, k g. E., sunday morning attended divine service at the first Baptist Clerch where a Sermon was preached by the pastor the Rev. A. J. Irey. The members of the order in arched from tin Lodge room it a Mill Street to tin Church in i body there Hsiug forty one in line. Or. Ireys discourse was an appropriate one conceived of with reference to tin circumstances and the needs of the average Man such As is Aptt it hold a membership in secret organizations. The text was taken from John 14 of. It had As its theme a existence a problem the Only solution. A the Sermon follows in part. Beginning the speaker said in making the declaration of our text a a i am the Way the truth and the life Jesus Christ is thinking a if his relation to humanity and of himself in the relation to i the outworking a if the problem of human existence. A to be it in us it to i be is not after All the supreme quest a a in with men and women but rather this Given this personal cud less exist on let of mine How May i make the most a if it How work it out to utmost advantage to it myself and others that there is such a problem is abundantly witnessed in tin inner Coji Ermence of each individual As Well As in the visible and pitiable wreckage a if human character Hopes ambitious purposes Ami usefulness on every Side a of us. To in is a supreme privilege and yet Soun of Ussow Fenly fail a if the True course Ami Mel of existence that it would have been better Lmh a we never been born. Other problems we May shirk or leave to others Here we All must acknowledge a responsibility which we cannot avoid. You our guests we All Are blessedly committed to working a iut this Pio Blum for your organization goes hand in hand with religion in leading your fellow beings to u better land. What is this problem of human to i Stein a a four fold answer is suggested to it us first the problem includes in part a conscious release from the condemnation a if sin. Very Early m our conscious existence the facts of a Ronal responsibility fair rightness and a of our failure Fri meet this re Shin Sivility Are thrust upon us. We stand condemned at tin bar of conscience Ami before god. We must Relief from this Monde mat Ion. No one Etui be or a to his Best while thus burdened. The wrong must he righted through the paying the i Salty a or through confession and forgiveness and most a of All with our god. The soul must have the consciousness of a present rightness Ami a peace with god. Tis More this now than a it West Iii of heaven or hell in the Mel. How shall a Man he just before go it 1? 1 am the Way a says tin Christ Ami As we study the question that divine human being that sinless life that death upon Calvary. That resurrection from the a Lead a All of it conies to Bear very vital relations to i our release from sins condemnation. We May not comprehend tin whole a if tin philosophy of it but we accept tin gracious invitation of infinite love to run to shelter there and come to know ourselves justified Ami in a state a if peace with offended deity. This problem of existence includes also a right Hamlet attitude on our part toward god tin Good the evil toward All men All life a duties and responsibilities. Nothing can be More True than that As we Are at the heart of us. In tin realm a if our wills and of our affections so Are we that the issues of life those passing and present and those future and eternal Are primarily out of the heart rather than originating in our ancestors or in the conditions in which we Are placed. Of if the heart lie wrong nothing can he rights not even Godf in us. Nor is right hearted Ness a nature endowment nor a disciplinary acquisition. A the natural heart is enmity against got and is not subject to the Law of Goa neither indeed can anti How indeed can anyone work out the problem of existence from a wrong heart and How May a heart which is wrong lie transformed into a right one again the heavens above us which might have been As brass become vocal with tin message of love Ami redemption. A son daughter give me thy heart. A but no existence is being truly solved in which the constant conflict with evil in every life a Loes not As a Rule is Sun in Victory for righteousness. There is thu Wolf in each one a if us. Every one with whom to have to i a to is More it in less selfish. There is the ii Ronal Devil flu source Ami perfection of evil How May we win out in this life and death struggle preserve our integrity not give the lie to our professions in indeed As lights in a sin darkened world How a my Grace is sufficient for a a my strength is made perfect in weak continued on 2nd Page.
