Some Timely Humor

Our besetting sin of candor compels us to admit the superiority of St. Louis institutions in some respects. Fewer runs have been made on their base-ball club than on ours this season. The same relative condition of things exists with regard to the banks of the two cities.
-Cincinnati Enquirer (quoted in the August 1, 1877 issue of Puck)
