The Champions annexed one from the Hounds on Thursday evening of last week by a score of 4 to 3, making their percentage to date an even 500. On Monday evening the All Stars i dropped another, from force of habit,: to the Hounds, the latter securing five ; riins to one for the former. - ! But two more games remain to be . played—perhaps. Tonight the Would ; Be Stars and Champions hook up, i and if the former win they will be in", possession of the pennant. If they lose, and the Champions win in their last game, which will be played'with the All Stars on Monday evening, there will be a three-cornered tie for : the coveted flag. It has been a great race for the three j leading teams, the All Stars having j been handicapped all along in tha j catching department, not having been able to develop a. receiver who could hang on to third strikes. Much fun has been enjoyed by -the participants as well as spectators, and it is io be hoped the league "will be an annual feature of our village life. ^ A financial statement of the league ' will be published at. an early date, that all' who have contributed to the sport may know where their money has gone and how much remains in the treasury.

Henne and Fairbank was highly appreciated, and the fine work done by the orchestra was above criticism. _|r «-^.%^^^^^"<&%^^*/^^'%^^^fc^/^^'*ia^^^^^'*^^^^^,'^^ SMOKELESS OIL OUR ELIGHl BRAND Does not smoke the chimney.
