Davis City Reunion A Success.
The Davis City reunion held last week as usual attracted a big crown not withstanding the rainy weather which interferred somewhat with the attendance, but on Thursday there was an enormous crowd there and all seemed to have a good time. The usual number of stands and paid shows were there, and they also had several good free attractions on the platform. Good speakers were present each day to address the people and as usual the ball games were well attended.
Wednesday afternoon Lamoni defeated Pleasanton by a score of 8 to 2. Thursday morning a pick-up team from Leon was defeated by Lamoni by a score of 11 to 4, and in the afternoon the regular Leon team defeated Davis City in a hot game by a score of 2 to 1.
Friday afternoon Chariton and Lamoni played, the first game being won by Chariton with a score of 6 to 4, and as each team had won two games this season, a second game was played to decide between them, but after playing eight innings the game was called on account of darkness with the score a tie, 2 to 2.
There is something which attracts the people to Davis City whenever they have a reunion and nearly everybody from Leon went down.
