The single and married men met on
the baseball diamond again Tuesday
afternoon. The single men were a
little sore over their defeat of the
week before and had blood in their
eyes. The game started off with vim
and promised from the start to be a
good game and be in favor of the mar-
ried men by a large score. But bad
luck come doubly to the benedicts
early in the game. Clarence Houk,
the catcher, got one of his fingers
smashed. Then another man was put
in and suffered likewise. This made
the game very one-sided and the smg-
lers had an easy victory. At the end
of the game the score stood 19 to 11 in
favor of the single^boys.
FAIR GROUNDS MEETING.
There will be a mass meeting of the
citizens of Geary next Tuesday even-
ing at the opera house to make ar-
rangements for a race track and ball
grounds near Geary. A suitable piece
of land can be procured for this pur-
pose and if a little money is subscribed
it can be made ready by July 4th.
Let everyone interested in Geary !s
welfare be present as this it some-
thing we need. Remember at opera
house Tuesday evening, May 20th,
Little Ben Moore and John Wil-
liams’ youngest son were badly pois-
oned yesterday about noon. How
they got the poison and the nature of
same is not known. They were first
discovered near the residence of Rev.
J. S. Krehbiel and were taken to
Ostranders’ drug store, where medical
aid was immediately summoned
The Williams boy soon became al-
right but the Moore boy had a narrow
escape and for quite awhile his life
was despaired of. At this writing both
are out of danger.

on that we must have waterworks,
