Do you find trouble to get a pen that suits you? We flatter ourselves that we can offer you the very best pens made, at the SENTiiraiL office. Our "Guillott's bank pen"and the "Falcon" are for busness men, and the "Double Elastic," 404, is for school use. Give them a trial. A new law relative to the" bulletining of passenger trains goes into effect this week. The law requires that, at each depot, were there is a telegraph office, a bulletin board will be display-- ed, on each shall be stated the schedule time of arrival of the incoming train, and whether shuch train is on time or not. Any train not more than five minutes late will be deemed to be on time. Will be Fought Out Next Tuesday Afternoon BETWEEN THE EAST AND WEST Clare's Annual Business Men's Base Ball Game WILL BE PLAYED ON SEPTEMBER 10th. ©<"^©<"^©<3*>-©<""^©-^©*--*-?>©'<^©-<-^ The irrepressible conflict between the East and West, is imminent. Twice have the west-side and east-side business men, under their respective colors, red and blue, met in desperate encounter, and, amid the blare of trumpets (in the hands of the small boy), and the shriek of flying balls, waged desperate warfare. Twice has the East borne its cerulean banner into the Western territory and twice has the valiant band of heroes been driven back by superior numbers, but yet un- conquered, leaving numbers of their rivals prostrate on the field. Again the contending parties are on the eve of battle, maneuvering for advantage. By stipulation? the day of final triumph and defeat has been set for Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 10, the anniversary of the day when Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain boys captured Ticonderoga, "'In the name of the Great Jehovah and the Conti- nental Congress." To drop the figure of speech, the annual ball game between the east side and west-side business men of Clare will be played next Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock. The gates will be open at 1 o'olock to accommodate the big crowd that will surely occupy every available inch of ground. The admission will be 10 cents, women and children to count of as much importance as men. School will probably be closed at the afternoon recess, so that the youth may take lessons inthe national game. A. H. Roekafellow of Roswell, New Mexico, has been secured as umpire. As a train will start toward Roswell directly after the game, and Roswell is a safe distance from Clare, it will be seen that the well-fare of the umpire has been considered. Chief-of-Police Austin will be supported by a special detail of stalwart deputies in citizens' dress. The necessity of mounted policemen to chase down lost balls is being considered. They will probably be mounted on the fence. The hostipal service will be more complete than eyer before. The rules governing the game as laid down by the league book seem to be rather deficient and new . ones have been added for Tuesday. We give a few here so our readers will guess somewhat as to what the alleged players are trying to do. These are samples: Pitchers must not throw ball faster than 10 miles an hour; Pitchers not allowed to hit same man twice in same place. No player allowed to make more than three (3) home runs in any one inning. Spectators allowedoonly one whack apiece at the umpire at end of each inning. No base runner allowed to slide over half way around the diamond. No "patching" allowed except in emergency. 2sTo betting allowed on the ground by parties unable to put up the stake. It will readily be seen that such rules tend to make the game more scientific and hence more interesting, as science is the chief thing to be looked for. Each side will be allowed a reserve list of 25 players. We would give the list of players selected by each side, but as the list is changed almost hourly it would be of small value as a means of identifying the men on the field.. However it will be something like this: "WEST. t EAST. Mussell Pitcher Palmer "Van Brunt — . Catcher Goodenow Korison.

Plain white lines have been drawn to mark out the diamond so that the fielders will be able to find their way back from chasing one of Waller's long drives (in shoes.) Bob will have his Mussell with him as usual. They say John Wilson, the tailor, will catch behind the bat. Since he is familiar with the goose he ought to be good at ducking. The Calkinsville cornet band will furnish music for the occasion. The ball players will take supper together at the Calkins after the game —such as are able to get there. ANNUAL SCHOOL MEETING. The annual school meeting was fairly well attended, and though there were no new moves of importance the interest was good. The annual report we give below. Dr. F. C. Sanf ord was elected a member of the school board, a tip top selection. A motion was made but lost to increase the amount to be added to the sinking fund from $500 to $1000 this year. One thing is worthy of note,jnamely. that in spite of the cry for economy raised at the last meeting and the election of members of the board on a retrenchment platform, the expenses have been fully up to the* old mark, and the estimate for the coming year provides for the same amount to be raised by taxation that was raised last year. This is not a criticism of the present or former officers, but makes this fact evident, that we have a big school and it takes about so much to run it economically, and below a certain figure it is impossible to go and maintain a good school.
