We thought we had lost, but by the use of the ready reck- oner at the finish we doped It out that the 'ofeer fellows did that part for us.

In the second Taber started some- thing, which eventually proved to be two counters. Cook out. Judson singled and stole second: Clarke presented with a free ticket, and In doing so made n wild heave which let Judson over tho plate.

Lethbrldge went down without n fight in the second, although Nichols got as far as second on a walk and a steal. Taber kept right on going in the third, and added two more. Nelson drew a free ride.
