Contrary to what the Large score would indicate the game was fast and furious marked All through with hard hitting Clever base running and fast Field and Box work the two teams running neck and neck from the Start ending in a sensational finish when Rainsville made the winning run in the last half of the ninth inning. The Field was jammed with vehicles of every description from a fussy Ford to a purring Packard with a fair sprinkling of horses and buggies. The crowd was enthusiastic and was not backward in showing its favouritism Between the two teams. In fact became so far from being backward that at several periods in the game it looked like it would take about two companies of the quot Home guards quot to Settle the dispute which by the Way arose Over some decisions made by the Umpire Billy Cantrell. We might add in connection that the writer who had no Money on the game and was strictly Neutral saw but one instance of this kind and Well admit that Billy is no Piker when he does make a mistake. It was enough however to Cut Pence out of one earned run with a Strong quot batting list to follow up on. Just what the outcome would have been had this decision been reversed is problematical.
