The article reads:

Go-Devils Have Booked Fast Team for
    Games Saturday and Sunday.

    The Hon. Brooks Lane, orator and baseball magnate, desires it to be known that the ball games to be played Saturday and Sunday at Electric park between the Go-Devils and the All Nation base ball club will be the speediest the fans have witnessed on local ground for several seasons. The All Nation club is composed of athletes representing practically every race and they are said to be fast players. They feature Donaldson, a colored pitcher, who recently struck out seven men consecutively and held the opposing team to one hit. Donaldson will be pitched against Harper Sunday afternoon.
    The batteries for Saturday afternoon's game have not been announced. Play will be called at 3:30 each day and there will be special car service to and from the park.
