Oct. 11.New York "came back"
with Rube Marquard and made it
even-all with the Red Sox, by win
ning the third contest of the world's
series by a score of 2 to 1.
The Sox, fighting desperately and
forced to come from behind, made a
sensational ninth-inning rally that
threatened to pull the game out of
the fire when Marquard' faltered and
the Giant defense threatened to
crack, but Cady, who had replaced
Carrigan behind the plate was equal
to the task passed him in the pinch
and when Devore pulled down his
long fly the agony was ended and the
race was evened up.
Marquard, who had been a ques

of characters came back with a flash
i of his early-season nineteen-in-a-row
form and, given a lead of a run in the
first inning, held the Sox safe all the

UmpireTo be selected by the
Bemidji will take on Thief Ri\e~
Falls for the third game of the se
son at the fair grounds tomon
ifte-rnoon at 2 o'clock. The gaire
will start promptly as the visitcis
must catch the 4:37 train for their
homes. Officials and team membeiS
are printed above.
Thief River has generally 1 ef a
rated as one of the weak teams cf^
this part of the state but it ca^
back last Saturday and held Fosstcn
to a 7 to 6 score and would ha.
won the game 12 to 7 had not the
referee called back a forward pa
that went over the Fosston goal line.
He claimed that the Thief River
team illegally blocked when getting
the pass. The Thief River boys are
coming to Bemidji confident of win
ning and taking home Bemidji's
On the other hand, the Bemidji
team has been weakened by ab
sence of old men who have not kept
up in their studies and will not go
into the field as strong as it d.d
against Fosston and Akeley. Jol n
son is below and was put on the sec
ond team yesterday. His position is
being filled by Klein, but Klein is a
new man and not thoroughly farril
