They arrived tliere about 4 o’clock, and as nobody met the boys, it took a long time to find where the celebrated field was, where the contest was to be had. After a time the boys found it, however, and proceeded to the spot. They were greeted with yells from tne crowd of small boys that generally congregate at such a place, and after waiting about an hour and a half for the Caryv-ille boys to get their nine, the game began with Tom Agar as Umpire. The Batavia club was comprised of about one half of their regular nine, as is usually the case, and every boy had his little word to put in, Fhe Cary’s had a very strong set of boys, and , they played well, The Batavia’s did some very fine batting, nearly every, time, sending the ball out of the held and over the fence. A representative from our office made the best5 bat during the game. McDonald and Loomi also made some famous hits,' Mr, Donoghue badly sprained his ankle in the fifth innings, but on remov­ ing his shoes, he managed to steal three Basses pretty lively, and made his score, - It was a. terrible acci­ dent Mulligan of the third base had a ball part hfs hair in the mid­ dle, and strike ham 011 the head. He soon recovered however. As Skelley, the catcher, was coming from first base home, he was struck in the back of the head with a ball. It is only a wonder that the boy was not knocked senseless. Mr. Skeily stood-behind the t a t 'till his hands were puffed out of shape, but he did not give up, ’till the game was finished. Peck's throwing was excellent and the Caryvilles found it difficult to strike him. The best play on the part of the Caryvilles was made by Davis, who took a hot liner and made a double play. Their catch­ er had bad luck with his pantaloons ripping. As fast as one side was sewed the other would rip and a good deal of amusement was afford­ ed. The game at the findsh stood 17 to 18 in Batavias favor. It was a gala day for Caryville and the ob­ servatory in the Sera inery was crowd­ ed with spectators- The grounds, like the gamej was the worst we have seen in a long time, as far as “ muffing ” wild throwing is con­ cerned. There were fences on all sides and it was decided that anyone knocking a ball over a fence would only be entitled to one base, This was a poor thing for Batavias; for heady every bat made would have given three bases. When the re­ turn is played we hope the boys will have their regular nine. Had we the time this would have been writ­ ten in better shape. £1UQMLS. — Mrs. Leanned intends leaving for Bay City, Mich., the forepart of next week. — Willie E.
