A match game of base ball was played on Friday last, between the Kunstausstellungsgebaude and Magnolia clubs of this place, in which the former got beaten. That name is enough to beat anything.

So what's the deal with club names in Edwardsville. First there was the Chargoggaggogmanchoggogogg and here's the Kunstausstellungsgebaude. It's all fun and games until you have to type it out. I will say that at least Kunstausstellungsgebaude appears to be a real word. I played around with a German-English dictionary but couldn't figure out what it means.
