Bept 5—Before two thou sand fans, Albany lost the third game of the post-season championship se ries to the Indians by the scoro of 10 to 6. The game was ragged, the Albany outfield offering some of the! poorest plays that ever have been displayed on the local diamond, Wil liams letting up in the seventh in ning, when Mayer got a home run with the bases full. Williams was relieved in the eighth by Morrow. Mayer atarted for the visitors and was wild, and when Al bany tied the score he was replaced by Wolfe, who went good until the ninth, when five clean hits gave the locals three runs. When Manager Manush stepped to the plate in the first Inning he was presented with a handsome traveling bag as a gift from his players. LIFE INSURANCE COM PA MEM. BUY A BALE OF COTTON Capital suggestion that—buy i bale of cotton. Tbe proposition is meeting favor with the cotton producers. It is a speedy and fair means by which to dispose of what is called "distress cotton," L e., so many bales In a given crop that the grower feels he must sell in or der to realize the Urgent amount possible per bale and thus be In po sition to cancel many if not all of his debts. The sale of a small per centum of a farmer s crop at \0 cents a pound, middling, will en able him to hold at home or in warehouse the remainder until a better price is obtainable. At the same time, the farmer can secure a loan at bank in a resonable sum on the basis of 8 cents per pound, backed by a warehouse receipt. Waycross ought to step to the front on the "buy a bale of cotton" proposition. Let every man and cveqr wpmau. who can spare the money, Invest In a bale of cotton. 350 will buy a bale which weighs 500 pounds. It is a safe investment Supported by a warehouse re ceipt, it will endorse your note for $40 at bank should you have need for that amount In un emergency. The Journal will gladly assls' In this patriotic business move ment. If, upon reading this article, you feel that you would like to Join the procession, phone uh your name, address ond the numbor of bales you are ready to buy and pay for on delivery. Those purchases should be distributed among the rurmers so that us many as wish to avail themselves of the movement In their behalf may do so.
