Mercer was the star In yesterday's game
with the Pirates. They could do nothing
with Iris delivery. He was the object or
much attention from the fair faus. When
be "went on the rubber they applauded
him, and as he stepped to the plate they
clapped their hands again. This was kept
up during the entire game, and to popular
did the young man become that the
"Mercer" button was sprung upon the
patrons of the game, and not a few were
eold in that portion of the grand stand
peopled by the women folk.
The game was full of nice plays. The
one-time popular Donovan displayed great
ability in the field and the two flies
he caught were marvelous. At the bat
he was up to all kinds of tricks, even
striking out once. DavV5 was the other
Tirate who familiarly himself with "Win
field's bashful balls.
Hughey was on the rubber and his
grunts came as frequently as those of a
Virginia woodchopper. The Senators took
as kindly to his varied assortment of al
leged deceptive twisters as a colored gen
tleman does to a spring chicken on a low
roost, ami hit him in fl-e out of eiht
innings for twelve singles and a double,
The majority of ihem were regular cork
ers and gave the outfielders considerable
The youngsters Wrigley and DeMontre
Tllle are a great team. They cover as
much ground as any two infielders in the
National League, and each hit the ball
with good effect. Wrlgley went far into
left and caught flics that would have
been easy for Selbach. and knocked
down Brodie's hit over second in rattling
Reilly had but a single chance, capturing
a foul fly near the grand stand. He made
a clever sacrifice, and his single was pro
ductive of a run. lie was given an acci
dental knockout blow by Sugdeu in the
eighth. The blonde fielder whs on third
when Wriglcy chased bim off the bag.
Xcilly set out for home at a mad pace,
and slid to the base. Sugden received the
ball high from Paddea and caught the
runner under the chin. Itellly laid motion
less, and it was some minutes before he
revived. Leahy took his place, but had
no work to do.
There were two flies taken by the Sena
torial outfielders. Tom Brown got one
and Gettman the other, owing to Mercer's
effective work. Gettman made a double
out of an ordinary single by fleet foot
cdness, sending two runs before him in
the first and drove in another in the third.
The visitors were retired without scor
ing until the sixth, when Davis caught
one of Mercer's mixed delivery and sent
the. ball over Gettman's bead into the
Mercer's wild throw of Sugdcn's bunt

are closing- out at $1.90.
Only about a third of the
original lot yet remains, but
the picking is still good, and
if 3'"ou will come in early
this morning you will be
able to secure some "dai

THE GIANTS WIN TWO.
They "Widen the Gap Separating
Them From the Heds.
New York, Aug. 31. -The expected trou
ble caused by the meeting of the New
iorks nndCincinnatis in two games today
did not materialize. Owing to public
opinion and tlic presence or police, the
players of both teams were as meek as
lambs. Asa isult, two fine games of ball
were enjoyed by an immense crowd. Ru
sle was hit freely In the first, but the New
Yorks finally pulled out and won. Their
three runs in the firth were duo to the
failure of either Irwin or Vaugnn to catch
an cany pop foul, which would have made
three outs and no runs in that Inning.
In the second game the New York? hit
Breitensti'ln liaidand played errorless ball
behind the superb pitching of Meeklng.
There was no kicking to speak of. as the
umpiring was generally good. Score:

nival of sports of the New Jersey Ath
letic Club, which will be held on the

of being able to go 100 yards In 9 4-5
seconds. Wefers, after his wonderful
quarter in the relay raco last Saturday,
stiould have no trouble lu establishing a
new record for the 300 yards Both
Rush and Maybury, however, feel that
in the 300 yards they will be given a
chance to redeem themselves.
