Time may erase the Solemnpages of history, fleeting ages may sink nations into the dust of forgottenpasts. But nothing will ever dim the memory of that wondrous hour whenWashington won the world baseball championship.

Washington's stout heartedgladiators rose freom the forlorn ruins of crumbling hopes and crushedthe mighty Giants in the twelfth inning of the greatest contest in thehistory of the game.

The whole city went mad ,in the aromatic ecstacy of a delirious frenzy,  and even refused tobe quieted through the long hours of thenight. ...a night of deliriousrevelry, a veritable orgie of joy, a celebration that was spontaneous,tumultous, overwhelming.

Hour after hour throbbingthousands marched and rode up and down Pennsylvania Avenue; and that oldthoroughfare, long accustomed tom the tinseled dignity of military panoply,laughed and rocked to sounds and noises that were as strange as they werejoyous toits ears. Restraint was left at home, and it was the happiest-go-luckiestmob that ever howled itself ragged.
