that Kock Inland and

wrrf proiwiundm-r finespun theories
why this whs so.
Some said it was cn account c-f tho
temper or the erovviis and some main
tained that it lay in the players.
If the afternoon frame had been

averted any trouble that might have
arisen lv cxpoi:nr at once the Ivd-
lite that both the opposing sides were
t"rinir up for the fray. For t 1 1 of
which let us be thankfi:!.
It was a bully game, as anyone who

ficant little score in the third at its
true val.ie ti!l the contest was nearly
over, r.very inning-, however, it prevvi
in magnitiule in inverse liilm to the
number of inninirs lhat were left to
play and when the last man was out
in tho ninth it filled the entire hori
zon. Such is the law of supply and
It was a battle of the pitchers and
Milton had the disadvantage of a
combination of adverse circum
stances in the third inning', which
lasted only long: enough for Nill to
cross the plate. Then, with men on
-(("ml and third and one out, mat
ters went back into the even tenor of
the contest and the side wrnt out
without another score.
C'onwell went behind the bat, Wil
liams having1 temporarily spoiled his
right hand reaching Smith's wild ones
in the morning, and he filled his po
sition to a queen's taste. In fact,
everybody played ball. Shelton made
the only real error and 'Milton was
charged with another thn,t should in
simple justice have been passed over.
Another record ' for attendance
went to smithereens. Train load
after tr ain load of humanity filed into
the grounds. The tall bleachers just
completed and the low bleachers that
had just had an addition placed at
the end, were filled, the grandstand
was packed to. suffocation and still
they came from Kock Island, Daven
port. Mohiie and the surrounding
country. When the game began
there were people everywhere.
The Way It Happened.
In the last half of the third, when
Davenport made the score of the
game. StauiTers lived on a short
grounder that went to the left of
Milton. The latter tried to pet it
and messed it so that O'Kourke could
not field it and Stauffers lived. Nil!
forced Stauffers at second but him
self stole while Martin was getting
a' base on balls. Then it was that
King hit the ball and brought the
run, getting second for his trouble
and putting Martin on third. With
Jacobs ii f the visitors snulled a cou
ple of additional tallies but it was not
to be. lie dropped u fly into Smith's
hand.s and "Holy Smoke" Weihrauch
retired the side with a short one to
Twice afterward the visitors had
men on third but there they bit the
dust. Kock Islanl, too, had some
prospects on several occasions. Con-
well made a nice 3-saeker but died
through Smith's failure to make good
with the willow. In the eighth
O'Kourke had an opjwrtunity to tie
the score. Smith hit it, Hopknis sacri
ficed and Mil.'on did likewise, but
O'Kourke got r.othing but a miserable
little pop-up. The score:

The difference of cost between a good
and a poor baking powder would not
amount for a family's supply to one dol

cause doctors' bills many times this.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is
the most economical in the end, because
it goes further in leavening and insures

Wright was present a.i a spectator
in the afternoon and received a glad

Players say that the clump of
trees at the south of the park inter

the greatest suffprers and, according
to their statements, the wonder id
there are not more passed balls than
are shown in the- record. Hatters
say they could do better if the back
ground were brighter, and make the
suggestion, which is one that should
be adopted by the local management
if it 'is in the interest of the game,!
that the south fence be built higher
and painted white.

leag-ue cities yesterday were as fol
lows: Uock Island, $00S.0(; Daven

Kvansville, $180.40; Kockford. $108.
All holiday receipt being divided
equally among the eight clubs, each
club will receive $283.
An effort is being made to arrange
a game of baseball between the Kock
Islnnd and Davenport hijtrh schools,
to be played in this city next Satur
day afternoon. Davenport has been
playing ball this spring and Kock Is
land has not, which would give the
lowans a great advantage, but it is
proposed to include the teachers in
the opposing teams, which will tend
to strengthen Hock Island.
The Kock Island team will leave at
7 this evening for Kockford to play
in that city and Cedar Kapids three
games each before returning home
to meet the same teams here. There
will be.no changes in the. team, at
least till it returns, although Kohly

NORTH WESTERN EXTENSION SOUGHT
.Muscatine tne Objective I'oint on

of Ihe Rail.
. wen authenticated rumor has it
that the Illinois and Mississippi Kail-
way company, which has been incor
porated to build as line from I'eoria
to a point on the Mississippi river in
Kock Island county, as told in
Ihursday's Argus, is nothing less
than a proposed extension of the Kig
Four. It is further averred that Mils
cat me, and not the tri-cities, is the
objective point on the Mississippi.
It seems that the Hi"r Four has for
some time been figuring with a view o
reaching further into the northwest
and early in the spring a party of
officials of that road went to Mus
cat ine by rail and drove in hacks
from that place lirst to Alcdo and
thence to (lalesburg, which is under-
stood to be the route favored for the
extension. Of course it is not to be
supposed lhat the line will end at
Muscatine, for if it is built that far
it will undoubtedly be continued on
to intersect some' of the lateral lines
in lown in order to make a bid for
eastern business that now passes
