Mr. Little-jotn- , of the street carnival, had some misunderstanding with some members of his baud early Sunday morning, and their leaving him so weaKened his band it was unable to appear. However, the services were highly profitable aud enjoyed by about 600 people. Rev. J. J. Cole read from the Matthew 6: and spoke about twenty-five minutes. He emphasized the thought that while God had given us mammon to enjoy, we must not sacrifice ourselves to mammon. Man's business is to build character, make a man seek first God's kingdom and then the material things of life would come in their turn the important thing oi life is character. At the close of Rey. Cole's address Rev. Virgil Elgin spoke Jor about the same length of time, emphasising the thought that God needs men in the kingdom, and men need God to enable them to reach the highest and best of life. God in all ages has used men for his service and has committed His kingdom to their care. Both addresses were strong and well presented. We have heard nothing but the very highest compliments upon the most excellent behavior and attention of the large audience and the splendid address of the speakers.

There is such a combination of hindrances this morning, everything in a jumble, that I must cut short this letter, hoping to make amends next A. B. C. time. . August 6. Editor Jkffkrsonian: notice in your valuable paper once in a while some of the happenings about Seatonville, but the baseball game seems to be overlooked, so I will mention it if you will be kind enough to give this line room. Having heard in different ways of this game, and especially that last Sunday was the day for what they called a "double header," I desired to go. and I am here to tell you it was a sure enough game. If I got the plan correctly Joe Gelhaus was there with a nine, and there was another nine called Blue Rock. Then Dr. Turner came in with the Seatonville team and the work began. The first thing I saw of any consequence was when the bases were full, a hit made by a fellow they called Hamp Bishop. Well, sir, when he struck that ball it looked like it was going out of the country. Hamp must be the Seatonville champion. The boys on the other side widened out as far as the level land went, then into the bushes and was still not out far enough. To I bow-necke- d see Hamp make that run made Dr. Turner prance with joy, Joe Gelhaus to twist that military mustache with horrow and Blue Rock to get bluer. Another feature of the game was the fine fielding of Tom Nelson for Seatonville and Eddie Ghering for the Gelhaus team. When the games were over the score board showed Seatonville 20 to 12 over Blue Rock and 14 to over Gelhaus.
