After a desperate struggle of ten innings, Yale defeated Dartmouth, 12 to 11, not on their merits, but by a Yaleism as discourteous as it was unusual. At the end of the fifth inning, with a score of 10 to 2 against Yale, and the nine looking rather blue, the crowd realized that they were being outplayed in the field, at the bat and in base running, and saw that their only hope lay in getting Dartmouth rattled. This, headed by oarsmen, foot ball players and others, they succeeded in doing by bombarding the visitors at every move with the college and the class yells. In the eighth this disgraceful bedlam was repeated, and the score was tied. The confusion and noise then grew worse, but both nines were blanked. In the tenth the excitement was intense. The Dartmouths failed to score, and Yale scored the winning run on Chellis' failure to stop Bremner's grounder. The batting was very hard. Many Yale men apologized to the Dartmouths for the unfair treatment they received. [Globe.
UNPLEASANT TREATMENT TO SAY THE LEAST.
