The game of baseball was waged at the coal kiln on Saturday, Pleasant Ridge versus Coal Kilns. The Ridge boys had a pleasant time in batting and when the score got to be 47 to 3, the Coal Kilns team caved in and gave up the game. The foreman of the Coal Kiln team, looked at the moon, over his shoulder the night before, which accounts for their bad luck.
