The Shamrocks Visit Lebanon

The North St. Louis favorites, the Shamrocks visited Lebanon, Illinois, last Sunday and administered a sound drubbing to the club of the place. The score was 21 to 1. Captain Burke, in the absence of Manager Walsh, handled the team to perfection and the quite gentlemanly behavior of the visiting team was noticeable and favorably commented on. Manager Walsh's new hand ball court will be ready for play to-morrow. His new saloon is rapidly nearing completion and his friends and all lovers of the sport should visit his popular resort.
