'Bleachers in an uproar'

Daily highlights from Howard County's number one source for local news.

"Dorsey 10, Federals 1.

"The Dorsey Athletic Club easily outclassed the Federal Athletic Club of Baltimore last Sunday and defeated them by a score of 10 to 1. Vogts had the Feds at his mercy all the way along and the few scattered bingles were well taken care of by his mates.

"Features worth mentioning were the base running of Burke and the catching of Rube Wheeler. 'Buck' Cooney at the second bag scooped up everything that came his way as did Pretty Ritter at third. Runt Merson the diminutive fielder is back in the fold and played a nice game. Danny Bloom made a near two sacker with two on, that put the bleachers in an uproar."

They had some interesting first names a century ago, and obviously even odder nicknames. I don't know if 'Pretty' was a typo, but by any other name, he helped win the game, along with 'Runt.'

"Miss Mary Miller Married


"A pretty wedding took place here last Wednesday night at 8 o'clock when Miss Marry E. Miller, of this City, became the bride of William C. Cavey, of Grays, Howard county. The marriage ceremony, which took place at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. Bessie Miller, was performed by Rev. S.M. Engle, pastor of the Ellicott City Presbyterian Church.

"A reception was held at the home Thursday night when many of the friends of the young couple were present and enjoyed a social good time."
