The benefits to be derived from a city or town advertising its advantages as a location for the establishment of manufacturing concerns employing small or large numbers of working people cannot be overestimated. If a merchant can sell his goods by advertising, an I of course he can, there is no reason why a city or a town or even a wilderness cannot attract ; )eople and factories to it by a judicious advertising of its special advantages. Many cities throughout the country are now engaged in adver-ising their peculiar advantages "by means of books, pamphlets and circulars and even by newspaper advertising. The business men of Fort Wayne, Ind,, are following this )lan with remarkable success, lecognizing that they have a splendid city, they propose to spend some money placing the act before others, using such suitable mediums as will lead to the results desired.

Announcement cards were sent out Wednesday. They will be home to their friends after July twenty-first at 218 Sixth street. The Plain Dealer extends good wishes.FRANKLIN PROVED EASY- The Reds administered an awful beating to the Franklin club at Midway Sunday before a good crowd. The visitors attributed their poor showing to the effects .of a hard game the day before and the intense heat cut a verdict of the "bleacherites" taken after the eight inning would have dubbed them as cellar champions in a "Prairie League." Figure the dope from any angle and the team which now represents the college town can not be classed with the Reds. The local bunch played fast ball in the field, on the bases and hit like big leaguers. As a result of their defensive work Franklin made a single tally and barely escaped a shut out. On the inside they bagged twelve safties for a total of twenty-one bases which with some loose playing on the part of their opponents netted them thirteen runs. Owing to the heat Mgr. Davenport decided to use both of his pitchers and to Hutchings was given the task of working the first half. He was a complete puzzle during the time he officiated on the rubber, «llowing two scratch singles while his control was perfect. Derringer took up the running in the sixth and easily blanked the visitors until the ninth when he momentarily lost control. He passed Polk as a starter and Stack singled sharply to right. F. Pool hit to the rubber and Howard's throw to catch Polk at third was late, filling the bases. Baty scratched a hit past first scoring Polk, but that was all, for Derringer applied the brakes and retired the side. While the Reds only scored in three innings thf»y made enough while they were at it. Duke started the game for Franklin and got off all right in the first but was batted viciously in the second, the Reds scoring twice. They continued the onslaught in the third and after six runs had been sent across Duke was replaced by Poole who did better. He gave out in the sixth however and Duke was sent back for another drubbing. The score: R H E 1 1 U 3 X 13 13 2 Franklin 00000000 Reds 02600005 Earned funs, Reds 9; three base hit«. Hatchings 3; two base hits, Trit>p i. C.

Amos Griner, of Columbia township, came to town Saturday and after tanking up began to show off. He struck some young boy and when Clifford Eckstein interfered told Glif a few things he could do to him. Marshal Suddith was told of his action and hunted the fellow up and told him if he did not behave he would arrest him Grner answered insolently "I don't know whether you will or not" where upon Suddith immediately placed him under arrest and as he is a husky sort of a fellow quietly put nippers on him. He went along all right until they were almost to the jail, and where there were no passers by when he threw up his free ¿and and struck at the Marsh«»l who dodged and pulled his club and struck at Griner who warded off the blow. Finally both men were thrown and by that time help had arrived and Griner, bleeding profusely, was landed in jail. Marshal Suddith was not hurt as the fellow never got in a lick at him. When his supper was taken to him later he threw the dishes against the wall breaking them into pieces. Monday morning he was up before Mayor Meloy who fined him $55.00 which he promptly paid, He comes from a fine family and is all right when he is not drinking. The heavy fine was partly for resisting an ofiicer.NOTES. Indianapolis Mets is billed at Midway for next Sunday. With good weather they should draw a good crowd. Bloomington follows on the 30th coming here from Rushville where they play a series of games. Hutchings carried off the batting honors with three triples. "Old Hutch" bats in a class by himself. Tripp injured his foot sliding to third in the sixth and was forced to retire. Will Smith and Charley Doyle, the two Reds, who are out with the Marion Owls on a trip have forgotten what a victory looks like. Perhaps it is because they are only worth "fi^ pents novr." __ Up to the ninth inning of Sunday's game the Reds had made a run of 19 successive innings without being scored on. That means real ball playing.For Trade. $3,000 to $5,000 worth of general Mdse. For farm. W. W. Olcott.For Sale. Two residences. Each large lots.
