Last Saturday the Geary ball
club went to Oklahoma city to
play a series ot (wo games with
the league team of that place.
The first game Vas played Satur-
day afternoon^ This game was
a good one an#* very thing passed
off harmonioualy. Stanley did
1 the twirling fojp Geary and held
! the leaguers down to four scores,
but Geary failed to score. The
Sunday game was different how-
ever. This game started out
with Geary in the lead at the
first half of the ninth the game
stood 6 to 2 io favor of Geary.
The manager of the Oklahoma
City team bagan to kick right
at the starting of the game and
kept it up until the finish. The
score * as tied *4n the ninth in-
ning, standing b to 6. GeoBoland
of this city, did the umpiring for
both games, but after nine in- j 1
nings had been played, Okla- . money,

WHAT Oil WATER
WORKS WILL COST.
Jay Frank, who runs errands
for the Bulletin Publishing Co.,
took ue to task last week because
we said that the city would only
get a $28,000 water plant for the
$52,000 bonds sold. Now, as
he wishes to appear so wise, we
will proceed to prove that not
even that amount will be spent
in the actual construction of
Geary's water system. The ex-
penditurea of the city in connec-
tion with this proposition are as
follows: Bond discount $5,200;
Dennis Flynn, legalizing bonds
before congress, $3,500; J. C.
Olds, drawing plans and specifi-
cations, $1,500; J. F. Richards,
plans and specifications, $150;
John Nuveen A Co., passing up-
on legality of bonds, $1,200; Tan-
neyhill, digging wells, $600;
blank bonds, $100; hose cart and
hose, $1,800; printing, advertis-
ing, water tests, etc., $500. Add
these figures together and you
have $14,030. Substract
$37,070 and you will have re-
maining $27,802.50. The city is
compelled to raise the money
somewhere to build a power house
and dig the city wells. These
are facts and cannot be denied,
and if the waterworks cost any
more than $27,802.50 the city
must dig up the money outside of
the water works bonds.

not want to see Mr. Boland

was giving correct decisions at
all times, so they refused to play

Will Play Kansas City Blues.
Arrangements have been made
for the famous Kansas City Blues
to play ball with the Geary team
in this city on Monday,
October 3rd. This will be the j
best game of the season and
everybody should turn out and
swell the gate receipts, as it costs
money to get a team like this to
play in Geary.
Small Fire Sunday Night-
Sunday night about 12 o'clock
fire broke out in the Keys photo-
graph gallery and but for the
timely arrival of the fire-fighting
citizena would have destroyrd the!
building and contents. Key says

Now anyone who attended the
game will testify that there was
at least 2000 people who saw the
ball game and payed admission,
and the receipts should have
amounted to over $400. The ques-
tion is where did the remainder
of this money go to? The Okla-
homa City ball management de-
liberately stole this money. Oh,
they're a nice bunch.
A son of Otto Pratt and wife
died in this city Thursday, 8ept.

lungs, being sick only a short
time. The funeral services were
conducted at the family residence
near the mill Friday, by Rev.
J. S. Krehbiel, after which the
remains were laid to rest in the

By this method we desire to
thank the kind friends and
neighbors who so willingly as-

death of our beloved child.

Arrangements have been made
for a big ball game in this city
tomorrow, when the fats and
leans will cross bats on the dia-
mond south of the depot. The
game will be called at 4:15, and
an admission of 15 cents will be
charged which will be donated to
Manager Guthrie's team. This
promises to be an interesting
game, as both teams have been
in constant practice for the past
week. Two interesting features
of the game will be Felix Cope-
land holding down first base and
Loui Holmes doing the short atop
act, either of which are worth the
price of admission. Come out
and see a good game and help a
