BALTZ'S WILDNESS. It Brings Defeat Upon the Oaklands Once More, The Prize Pitcher Cioes to Pieces in tlio Eighth Inning —Tlio Bay Games. There was something the matter with Pitcher Baltz's arm yesterday afternoon in the eighth inning of the baseball game. It got out of kilter all of a sudden and would not work at all as he wanted it to. Then it got sore and the prize pitcher "Went to pieces completely. Dp to this time, however, credit must "be given him for pitching one of the finest games of ball that any twirler ever accomplished in a game. Be was very steady for the first seven innings, and so "was Hoffman. Each seemed to be trying to outdo the other in honors, ami it was nip and tuck for seven long innings. l£ach side had managed to score a single Tun and 1 to 1 was the result when the seventh inning closed.

FARM AND ORCHARD. The Fruit Business in California All Right. Pasture Has a Most Important Influ ence Upon the Quality of Butter and Cheese—Chestnut Culture—General Farm Notes. There is a certain class of growers in this State—those who have not received satisfactory prices for their fruit this year —who are getting the blues and predict ing disaster to the fruit industry of Cali fornia. Such croakers are to be found in every calling and branch of trade, and as la usually the case their pessimistic views in this matter are entirely unwarranted. It is true that prices of many staple fruits havo taken a tumble as compared with last year's values, but there is a reason able cause for this in the very uncommon conditions that have existed and now prevail. To begin with, California has the largest fruit crop she has over pro duced, and at the same time the East has a crop that has not been equaled in many years. To more seriously complicate matters, California fruits were late, and the E...

However, a widely read and live newspaper like the Hki-okd-I'mon is not published alone for the benefit of those who live within the sound of its presses.
