Shortville (3 JUN 1915)

We noticed in last week’s South Grant items that the correspondent made an apology for the defeat of the Pleasant Ridge team by our boys, stating that they could not play on water. Now those boys all know Shortville is a day town and if they had wanted anything stronger than water, they should have ordered it from Neillsville at the same time they engaged their pitcher and baseman from the Neillsville nine.

Amos Kegley, Floyd Hagie and R. Frantz went fishing on East Fork Monday and have not yet returned. We expect to see, or rather, hope to see them peddle out a wagonload of fish when they return.

Miss Alice Anderson of Neillsville spent the weekend with Clara Frantz.

Shortville will be represented at the community picnic Saturday by their brass band and baseball team. The picnic is to be held on the Jim Hughes mound. Everyone go, have a good time and boost for our baseball team.

East Washburn held their community meeting at the town hall Saturday night.

Shortville played a very close and interesting game of baseball with Cannonville Sunday afternoon, the latter winning by one score in the eleventh inning.

Walter Bell has the framework of his barn about up. Roesslers are doing the work.
