Notes or transcript:  “A ball game was played here Wednesday between the married and single men, but the married men were no match for the single fellows. The score stood 22 to 14 in favor of the single men. The game was played east of town on ground furnished by W. R. Linville. Mr. Linville offers to give the boys the grounds as long as they want to use it, and will only charge them a small rent. The boys ought to fix it and organize a nine and invite the neighboring towns to play with them. We understand there will be another game played next week between democrats and republicans.”
