Excerpt from Baseball Joe on the School Nine: Or Pitching for the Blue Banner Joe's heart was heavy as he pitched, for he knew that if his father lost his money through the taking away Of his patents there would be no chance Of his going to boarding school, and Joe desired that above everything.

But he pluckily pitched the game, which was a close and hot one. He won, making the Stars the champions Of the county league; and then Joe hurried home.

To his delight there was a message from his father, stating that at the last minute unexpected evidence had won the patent case for him, and he was now on the road to prosperity.

SO it was possible for Joe to go to boarding school after all, and, to his delight, Tom Davis prevailed upon his parents to send him. SO Joe and Tom went Off together to attend Excelsior Hall, just outside Of Cedarhurst, and about a hun dred miles from Riverside.
