An honest man has been discovered in Gloversville. Thus witnesseth’ the following letter received by the manager of the A. J. & G. State League base ball team:

Dear Sir:- Some two weeks ago I witnessed a ball game from the roof of a shed just south of the A. J. & G. park. I think I had a quarter’s worth of fun out of it, and I therefore enclose (25) cents. which you will please place to the credit of the A. J. & G. baseball association.
