What kind of a break is Sage at
tempting to make in putting Cantil
lion in to pitch and then getting
hammered all over the field' and
making an exhibition of himself, as
he did yesterday at St. Joseph!
Such a species of ball playing is dis
graceful, and ought to be stopped in
the interests of the game. If Sage
has any pitchers who are not in con
dition to perform their duties he
should supplant them with men who
can. The least said about yesterday's
game, however, the lictter, perhaps.

Will Remember Mr. Ilaakcll
At Omaha Sunday, Umpire Has
kell, not only lined Manager Sage
10, but he put him out of the gaue.
and for no offense whatsoever, at
that. The Bee says:
He had just as much right to fire
Grover Cleveland from the white
house as he did to put Sage out of
McMackih has a fashion of deliver
ing an illegal ball, that is, he cun
ningly manages to hide it from the
batter's view just before sending it
in. Sage called Haskell's attention
to this several times, and Haskell
cautioned Sammy once or twice. He
still persisted, however, and Sage re
minded Haskell again. This seemed
to rouse the hitter's ire, and lie com
manded Sage to shut up, and on
Sage's attempting to exjdnin to liini
that he was attempting to make his
opiionents tote fair' Haskell plas
tered a $5 line on to him..
"I can stand the fine,"' remarked
Sage, "but I don't want to be beaten
out of the game."
"That costs you five more," ex
claimed Haskell, "and more than
that, you get out of the game!"'
Sage rebelled for a time, but wise
ly seeing he was working a large and
enthusiastic crowd up to the fever
piteh, rather than disappoint them,
he withdrew, and Zeis took his place,
while Lawhead went into the field.
The crowd cheered the umpire, be
cause it thought he was right, but hi
this case the crowd did not under
stand the situation. An umpire who
eaunot get along with Harry- Sage
has no business in a game of ball.
He doesn't know how to be unrulv,
and is a gentleman at every step of
Why Edlnger Quit.
Jerry Kdinger, the pitcher of the
Quiney club who deserted the club
on its trip west, has written from
Bonaparte, Ind., a letter to the (juin
cy Herald in explanation of his con
duct, in which he says: "You have
probably heard some queer reports
about me. and I hoc you will give
me space in your paper to explain.
To make a long story short, when we
arrived at Keokuk live or six of your
players were unable to get off the
train without assistance. I was
completely disgusted with the whole
011 Hit, and would sooner ijuit the
business than to jolly around with a
gang of that kind. It's poor encour
agement for a pitcher to work hard
and expect to receive suport from a
gang of Indians who stroll the streets
all night and essay to play ball the
It is now reported that the Kock
Island Y. M. C. A. basket ball team
was given anything but a brotherly
send off at Monmouth, after the
game there Wednesday night, in
which the Hock Islands were victori
ous, and that eggs were among the
other missies which followed ihcni
from the scene of conquest. Assist
ant State Secretary Bruner will go to
Monmouth to investigate. If the
facts asserted are well founded,
it would be belter to let a policeman
investigate the matter.

liev. K. F. Sweet Receives at Trinlttj Rec
tory Other Evente. 1
Rev. It. F. Sweet, assisted by the
Improvement guild of Trinity parish
received his parishioners and their
friends at Trinity rectory last liven
ing, and tho large numlier of people
who responded proved a high com
pliment to the beloved pastor of
Trinity, as well as the ladies who as
sisted in making the occasion pleas
ant for all attending. During 'the
evening the Orpheus Mandolin club
composed of Messrs. E. E. Ziegler,
William Mueller. Henry Ullemeyer,
William Ullemeyer, William Thorn bs
and Fred Eckerman, rendered a num
ber of delightful selections of instru
mental music, while the Xorden male
choir gave some fina vocal music.
Those composiug the Norden male
choir are: Messrs. N. Swanson, H.
Appclquist, A. Bergstrom, E. Peter
son, E. Anderson, F. Peterson, A.
Johnson, A. Peterson, A. Nelson and
A. Aron. the latter being the leader
Refreshments were served in the
basement by the ladies' guild. Among
those present were: Canon Rogers,
of the Davenport cathedral. Rev.
Dr. Weaver, of Trinity church. Da v

Junior Entertainment at the Y. M. C. A.
The Juniors of the Y. M. C. A.
were treated to an interesting and
instructive program last evening in
the chapel of the building. The
"War of the Rebellion" was the at
tractive feature in song, word and
deed, and it was the most successful
entertainment given by the Juniors
this season. A chorus of six voices
opened the program, with a song en
titled "Banner of Beauty," this being
followed with a piaoo solo by Mark
Haul ser, who rendered the Grand
Army march. The G. A. R. drum
corps gave several selections also,
which proved equally entertaining.
S. D. Cleland followed by giving
some of his own exerience of armv
life, telling about his enlistment at
early age, together with the hard
times which the soldiers endured,
describing also about a fight which
occurred near Wolf river, in Tennes
see, and. interspersed with funny ex
periences. The boys highly enjoyed
this discription of army life. Miss
Lizzie Kennedy followed with a piano
solo, "Woodland Echoes," w hich was
rendered with a very sweet touch.
The chorus sang Mv Own Native
Land." after which C. 11. Church told
the boys about his 7-months' impris
onment in Lihhy prison. This talk
gave the boys a" wonderful apprecia
tion of their present circumstances,
and while they were not thoroughly
interested, they could not help but
wish there had never been a prison.
Mr. Cleland told about his Christmas
dinner in IKiU, and gave also many
oiher interesting facts about his own
life. He also explained the various
"calls" given by the drum corp each
day, with which he was familiar,
having entered the army at 14 as a
drummer boy. The program closed
with the singing of "America," which
the boys sang with a will. The en
tertainment proved very profitable,
and all speak well of it.
The musicale given at the United
Presbyterian church last evening
was largely attended and the pro
gram was carried out in a very cred
itable manner. The program was
opened by a piano solo by Mrs. H. C.
Marshall, followed by a doll drill by
10 little girls. James Hudson and
Miss Gertrude White then furnished
two vocal solos. Mr. Murphy a
declamation. Miss Laura Albrecht a
recitation, music by the boys' trio,
piano and violin duet by Miss Walker
and Clarence Spaulding. and another
vocal solo by James Hudson. The
program was then closed with a
Norden Choir Convert.
The Norden male choir of 10 voices
gave its third annual concert at the
Swedish Lutheran church, at tho cor
ner of Third avenue and Fourteenth
street last evening, and it proved a
most entertaining and eniovablc
