AT ST. LOUIS.
Ilealy achieved a phenomenal feat
in the Maroons' whitewash of Kansas
City yesterday, holding bis opponents
down to one hit and allowing but
three men to reach first base, but one
of whom reached third baee. The
game was markod by brilliant fielding
oa the part of the Maroons, heavy
slugging and general all round fins
work. McGeachy made a home ran
and raught several difficult flies. Bui
one fielding error wan made by the
Maroons that of Glasscock, who other
wise did finely. Cahill did splendidly
in fielding and batting. For Kansas
City Donnelly covered third wonder
fully well, making several very bril
liant stops. Score:

Earned runs St. Louis, 3. Two

Detroit's fibst shutout.
Clarkson may have pitched a finer
game of ball then of yesterday, but it
would be impossible to make any of
the 4C00 people who saw him believe
it. His support was superb, William
son's two fumbles being the only visit
ing errors of any description. For six
innings Detroit retired in quick suc
cession, the only one who reached first
during that time being put out on a
double play, and at no time during the
game did a Detroiter see second.
White's lovely base hit in the eighth
availed nothing, is he was forced out
by Hanlon, who was put ont at first at
the fame time. In the ninth the side
struck nut, making a total of ten strike
outs. The home club generally played
Well but their errors were costly.
Broutbers' maffot a thrown ball in the
filth left Anson stfe on first and al
lowed Clarkson and Ryan to score. Ia
the seventh the third chance for a pnt
ont was loet through White's wild
throw, and a subsequent hit brought
in the run. A single and a doable
gave the visitors their only earned ran
in the first. This is the first time th
Detroits have been shut ont this sea

Fully 6000 people witnessed the
eleven inning game between the Lou

The contest was teplete with brilliant
plays and was stubbornly fought from
beginning to end. llecker pitched a
great game and wes splendidly sup
ported in toe field. Pechiney also
pitched in flue form until the tenth
inuiog, when he weakened, allowing
the Liuisvilles (our runs in the last
two innings. Wolf made two home
runs, the first being a tetrilia drive
over the right field fence, and the tec
ond lo the center field fence. In run
ning alter this second ball a small dog
caught Powell by the letr and he-id
him Boveial eeconds, while Wolto
cro3sed the plate amid tremendous
cheering. Jonci, Corkhill and Syl
vtator made great running ca'.ches.
McPhee covered second base in grand
style, accepting thirteen chances with
out an error. The ginn wai won iu
the last Inning, wbeu Wolfe made a
home run, White a triple and Kerins
single. In the tenth inning lleekor
wai caught between second and third
bases, and in a race with Mi-Pheer the

The Pittaburga defeated tho Louis
villos yesterday afternoon before a
small crowd. Tho grounds were wet
and slippery, and tho visitors won by
timely hittine and errors by the horuu
club. Carroll distinguiehed himseil
by nearly breaking Kerine'e log with a

Many pltchsr and catchers com
plain of over work if worked in two or
more successive games. They should
take into cr iaeration that a game

have played in more than twenty con
secutive contests without injury or
Tna Nashville jdmcn'can emphatic
ally denies the story that the Nash
ville club are endeavoring to sign any
of Purcell's men. One of the directors
of the club aava In reference to the
story that was telegraphed from At
lanta Saturday night: "The Nash
ville club will play out the season jnst
as it is. Every director of the Naih
ville club is in the city. We have
never had the faintest idea of Bending
anyone off for players or making any
mrt of effort to unite in this deal
which Atlanta has gotten up. I am
dumblounded at the article. It has
not the faintest ntterance of truth
A rmci of petty meanness com
mitted by manager Goldsby yesterday
has caused him to be as unanimously
detested among lovors of baseball
here aa he is said to be by the indi
vidual members of bis nine. The act
complained of is his fining Dundon
$25 for allowing Andrews to make a
home run. Of all species of petty,
mean, malicious tyranny, commend
ns to tho tyranny of a baseball
manager, who abuses the arbi
trary power conferred upon
him by the accident of bis
position to humiliate and impoverish
a less fortunately circumstanced player.
Does Goldsby imagine that Dundon
willingly allowed Andrews to knock
the ball over the fence? II he does,
then the fine was not heavy enough;
It should have been 1-500. But he
knows better; he knows that Dundon
was as deeply chagrined by the bit as
Goldsby himself could have been, and
mulcting him in pecuniary damages
besides is in the nature of refinement
of cruelty, possible only to a baseball
manager with a swelled head.
Nabhvili. Union, 23d : "One of the
most potent reasons why that Atlanta
Macon deal should be irownod down
is the groes injustice that would be
done Memphis should it be carried
out. The Bluff City peoplo have nobly
nnheld their team, and now that they
are at home playing good ball and on
deavoring to close the season without
financial loss, Atlanta jumps in and to
gratify hor insatiate desire to got even
with Savannah proposes to send a lot
of interior players to till out her Bertee
with Sneed's team. Anyoue with an
ounce of brains knows that the Macon
team in Atlanta uniforms wonld not
draw a corporal's gnard. This is one
of the very woist pluses of the
Hcheme. Sneed and his players are
making a determined effort to merit
the good win ci vno mempninns oy
playing the best ball they know how.
And they desire a liberal patronage
that they may be able to enter a few
dollars on the right side of the ledger
in order that they may be strength
ened for the campaign of 1887. II
Macon is allowed to play oil' Atlanta's
games, Memphis will be further in the
ditch than she is now."
Not exactly the Memphis club is
not in the ditch bat comes out of tbo
season whole, and while no money
has been made, none has been lost.
If Macon comes here to play Atlanta's
games it will be equivalent to giving
ns four games, and that will place
Memphis third in the league, a much
coveted rank just now.
JIf Savannah expect Memphis to
stand by her in the al tempt to be re
lieved of the penalty of 1500 Incurred
by refusing to play at Atlanta, she is
likely to be generously disappointed ;
and whether she pays the penalty or
not, the preponderance of sentiment
is against entering into a league with a
club that can be guilty of such mean
ness as to inflict a loes of $'.'500 upon
a rival club, and $25CJ represents
in round numbers the amount
lost by Atlanta through Savannah's
pipheadednees in leaving Atlanta
without pla)'ing the scheduled games.
And right here it might be well ti ie
member that the financial weakness
exhibited by Savannah earlier in the
season, and which threatened to swamp
her club aod cripple the league, ia in
itself a potent argument against tho
admission of the Savannah club info
the came league with Memphis, Nash
ville, Charltston, aod other citits
where baseball receives libnral patron
age. If Macon, Chattanooga and Savsn
nnh can dispose of their franchises
they had better do it, for it is ex
tremely unlikely that Memphis will
risk going through another ee-mmm
the tamo leogua with either of them.
Business is busioe:s, aud experience
has demonstrated that baceball does
not pay in the citus named. Nash
ville, Memphi?, Charlettou, New Or
lnans, Mobile, Evansville and Atlanta
will make a good enough league with
out monkeying with towns wheto the
finnncial life ot the club is tbreateutd
everytiuie a game is loot.

him. In this statement ho ia borne
out by Mr. Auguet Halms, also a
tailor, both of whom appenr to be
quiet and gentlemanly. They add
that about the same time Rogers tried
to force a colored woman to move from a

time there were no ladies in the park.
Mr. J. L. Wood of Wst Point, and
Mr. P. Levy of Nashville, Tenn., also
complain of having been treated with
groes discourtesy by the keeper of
Conrt Square. It appears that these
gontlomen, unacquainted with tbo
customs of the place, seated them
selves on benches which Rogers by
special decree has set apart for ladies.
On seeing them so seated Rogers ap
proached them, nnd in bis roughest
manner said: "Get olT those Beats,
they are reserved for ladies ; ye z have
not got any sense ; yez must be from

Aa Intelligent Juror.
Saturday Review: There is an Amer
ican stsry of a juror in a trial for mur
der in one of the backwoods settle
ments of the far West. Great diffi
culty had been experienced in getting
a jury; eleven jurors had at lost been
sworn in, and there remained only
one man of the panel. He was a
email, loan, lank fellow, with a
shrewd face nnd an uncouth de
meanor, and his appcrel seemed
to show that never before bad he
been within sight or sound of civil
ization. Ho WP1 psked the naual
questions as to whether he had formed
any opinionB about the csto, whether
he had any prejudice sgsinet tho
prisoner, or whether he was conscien
tious! v opposed to capital punishment.
To all these questions be returned a
decided negative. The J udgo and the
counael for the prosecution and for
the defense did not any of them
specially like the inau's manner, but
it was late and jurors were
scarce, and so he wai ac
cepted. In accordance with an old
form surviving strangely in out
of the way places, be was sot before
the alleged murderer aud the Judge
said: "Juror, look upon the prisoner;
prisoner, look on the juror." When
this command wis given tho little
man leaned forward and scanned the
culprit carefully from head to foot for
some moments: then he raised his
bead and turned to the Jndgeand
stid, in a firm and solemn voice, "Yes,
Judge, l think he is guinyr

ARCHEHY, LAWJi TEXSIS AND
CROQUET NEt.LECTED SPORTS
Among the Young People of Memphis-Outlook
for the Full
"What has become of all the arch
ery, croquet and lawn tennis clubs
.Memphis bad a tew seasons auo f
queried a voungieh old man yesterday
as he stood on Madison street watch
ing the crowds lotaruing from the ball
paik. "Everything set-ins to be tun
nine to bneball this summer. Thai's
always the way with the place, though.
Public desire all tuns iu one direction
until evi ry atom ol interest is squeezed
ont. ot it, and then it is thrown r hie,
like the juicelc-s null ol a lemon, lor
soinetuing now. 1c teems t) me the
voting people would Lave more tun
if they would take a variety a lit
tle croquet one day, baseball the next,
then !hwu tonni", and r.ow and then
Ut fly a few arrows at a straw- target.
I uteri at in none of tin so sports would
lU-gthen, And ri a matter of fact
there are enough young people left in
town every evening ' to tnko part in
other ppor;, but yon never eee any of
it. Wuy, tney have got so now that
they laugh at a young man who picks
up a croquet mallet, and naturally the
young ladies do not ci",n to play with
out their sweetheart t. Tho timn ha i
been when it would be h:ird to titid a
smooth lawn anywhere ubctit tho cily
or the suburbs on a tine evening that
did not bost its merry croquet party.
The game Is very pretty, hn!thfnl aud
ot'joytblo, and can bo ntado icleiiliilr,
too, Regular crcquet clubs might
be formed let it be nine on a
fide, in accordance with tie
popular cra.efor hateWtll i( nrcensary.
They mitiht meet 1'imt in ono neigli
bothood Bud then in another, or they
might artango their wickt- ts on grounds
lnrtto enough to peiini; of four or live
ganu'sat a time and goat it somethi'ig
alter the maimer of the piogreeaive
euchre parly, lly all nnmne, let us
rejuvouato "croquot. And then there
is lawu tennis. There I am emo tho
coquette might find Ibid for tho die
jilny of her power.i and the beau for
his.' It is a healthful, in vibrating
sport. But of all the delightful, charm
ing Bpotts for young men and women,
and even thoea who aro midd'odfged,
commend me to archery. About live
years ago then) wero half a dozni
clubs in tho city, and no little rivalry
existed between them. They met in
lovely groves, tho club of ono btreet
playing that ol another, and the
ecore was carefully kept and prizes
awarded at the end of the season.
A handsomo, well formed girl never
appears to better advantage than when
bending tho bow and drawing the
feathered arrow to a head. Whether
she , trikes the gold or not she pierces
tho hearts of those who Btand near
her every time. Take a gangling,
awkward, hollow chested, snilow and
listless girl and let her practice archery
for a few weeks and the change in her
ill be positively wonderlul. ller
form will became straight, her step
light but firm, her movements grace In I
and willowy, her arms and chest will
develop with the exercise, and her
eyes bright and smiling. The young
ladies are to blame lor tne decadence
of those sports. Let them take an in
terest and tho young men will be glad
to second them.
The Fall Meeting.
As the time approaches for the
closing of stakes for the fall meeting of
the New Memphis Jockey Club entries
are rapidly coming in and the socto
tary, Mr. 8. It. Montgomery, expresses
himself as very much pleased with the
proBtioct In calling ottention to tbo
club's announcement the Spirit of the
Titnn Bays: Wedtsiroto call tho at
tention of turfmen to the stakes of
fered by the Memphis Jockey Club, to
be run at their coming autumn meet
ing, which begiriB Tuesday, October
26th. and will coDtinno four dnvn, with
a regular day, weathor permitting. As
will be scon, this meeting loiiowecicse
lv in tho wake of that at Covinirton.
The Memphis Club is now ono ol the
most nourishing organizations of the
South and West. The tnofct cxtemdve
improvements, which have been made
in the track and grounds, render
them peculiarly tempting quarters
for winter, and it ia the desire
of the club to make their
grounds the great winter headquartets
of tho West, and to give a very early
spring meeting each season. Cer
tainly no place could be better located
for tno purpose, being free from cold,
piercing windB and with a temp rature
and weather which enables trninerj to
work thoir horses noarly all winter if
desirable, Tho finest clover and grass
pastures abound, and anew matadam
i.ed road leading from tho city to the
track has just been completed. The
Btakrs o fie red for tho corning autumn
meeting nil promlso to be very valu
able if the owners respond as they
should. Certainly tho clnb has done
its part. For the Gaston Hotel stakes,
for two year olds, eix farlnngsj, $500 is
added; for the Peabody Hotel handi
cap, three year olds and upward, one
mile and a furlong, fr03 in added ; for
the Gayoso Hotel sweepstakes, all
ages, one mile and a quarter, $600 is
added; for the steeplecnase handicap,
one mile and three quarters, $400 is
