A match game of base ball was played here last Saturday between the Scott City Ward 1 Patton, club and the Leoti Rustlers, resulting in a score of 9 to 6 in favor of Scott City. It was a very pretty game and a large crowd of spectators watched the playing with much interest.

This is evidently founded on the idea that bser is not harmful, and contains a large amount of nutriment, also, that bitters may have some medical quality which will neutralize the alcohol which it conceals, etc. These theories are without confirmation in the observation of physicians. The use of beer is found to produce a species of de generation of all orgaas profound and deceptive fatty deposits; diminished cir culation, condition of digestion and pert version of functional activities local inflai mations of both the liver and the kidneys, are cont'nually present. Intellectually, a stupor amounting to almost a paralysis arrests the reason, changing all the high' faculties into a mere animalism, sensual, selfish, sluggish, varied only with ystns of anger that are senseless and brutal.

In appearance the beendrinker may be the picture of health, but in real' ity he is most incapable of resisting disease. A slight injury, a severe cold or a shock of the body or mind will commonly provok acute disease, ending fatally. Compared with inebriates who use dif. ferent kinds of-alcohol, he is more incun able and more generally diseased. The constant nse of beer every day gives" the system no recuperation, but steadily lowi era the vital force.
