Hope flamed up in the breast
many a fan yesterday mornirij when
the skies frew light and the sun
strupcrled to break through the
clouds. lint the incipient fires were
dashed out before they had fairly
Jx-pun to glow by the drix.Ie that set
in about 10 o'clock. The prectpita
tion kept up with very short inter
missions during the flay and in the
afternoon when the double-header
with Cedar Rapids wns due to start
the dreary wetness was descending'
in sheets. Playing ball was just out
of the question and the disappointed
ones staid in the dry and spent the
afternoon in futile discussion.
The effect of so much moisture
upon baseball has led the local man
agement to seriously consider a
plan for covering the diamond with
a tarpaulin- to keep it m shape at
least for Sunday and -holiday games.
It is believed the thing can lw hne
with profit, taking the season
through, especially if the weather
continues to be unusually wet. It
would require something like 1,000
yards of oanvns which ean be bought
anywhere from 2 to jo cents per
yard, with a substantial reduction on
a wholesale lot. It is figured a canvas
covering could be made and the nec
essary apparatus for pitching it so
that it would shed water furnished
t a total cost little in excess of
$250. Such an investment would
have yielded double returns on two
or three occasions this season.
Yesterday, had there been any
cessation in the rainfall, a method
never employed here would have been
used to dry the diamond. A barrel
of gasoline was taken to the Twelfth
street park and an apparatus pre
pared with which to sprinkle it upon
the ground. It would have been ig
nited and the surface moisture would
have evaporated from the heat. Such
an experiment has been resorted to
in other places with entire success.
Of course the outfield must play in
the mud under any arrangement, but
with a little care th balls could be
kept dry on a dry diamond and the
batteries thus be enabled to do effec
I'laylaK at Kock ford.
Manager Donnelly left with his
team, this morumg for Rockford,
where three games are to be played.
Thursday Kock Island will play in
Davenport, and Friday--' a double-
header, the morning game in this
city and the afternoon one in Dav
enport, will be played. Saturday
Kock Island goes to Cedar Kapids for
three-game series and then comes
home for another long session.

Terre Haute, June 30. Terre

for the day. Jack Wilkinson, former- i

casion. Kling, who has resigned as
shortstop, being succeeded by- King,
was at thii.. for Ttaird, who has an
injured hand, and Kunkle, a new
catcher, was in the outfield. Nothing
better than a single was made, and
Terre Haute won through Bishop's
wildness. The game was called in
the seventh inning on account of

ChlrnKO I-'loradora Craze.
Chicago is in the throes of the
"Florodora" craze which held New
York City captive for a year and
half. The Knglish musical comedy
opened at the Illinois theatre May 11
anil ever since then when there have
been any complaints from the man
agement, they concerned the lack of
accommodations, which have made it
necessary to lurn people away al
most every night. In all Chicago's
history there lias been nothing of
fered at any of the playhouses which
seemed to meet with such universal
approbation as this harmonious com
bination of tuneful music and clean
"Florodora" is filled to repletion
with music that possesses a catchi-
ness and originality which makes it
a delight, even after one has heard
it many times, and it is claimed by
the management that eighty per cent
f the HopIe who were in attendance
ne opening weeks have made num
erous visits to the theatre since then
To enumerate the features which
have given "Florodora" eminence a
the most successful musical comedy
that has been offered in this country
would simply mean the publication
of the entire list of two dozen fii
filiating compositions and exhaustive
reference to its charms from the
standpoint of bright comedy, the
superlative merit of the east and the
splendor of the equipment represent
ed in scenery and costumes.
That the "Florodora" management
is a liberal one is attested by th
fact that there has been 110 curtail
ment of the immense organization
which was brought to Chicago after
the phenomenal New York run
There are still over one hundred jeo-
ple employed in the production, irre
spective of the orchestra of twenty
five men, and it is conceded on all
sides to be the most efficient and
best balanced company which has
ever invaded the west. J 11 the past
week Miss Isadore Rush, a pronounc
ed favorite with western audiences
made her apjearancc as Lady Holy-
rood, and instantly demonstrated
that clever as she was in straight
comedy, musical plays are her forte
Maud' Lamltert is another acquisition
to the company. Miss Lambert was
a leading member of the Castle
Square Opera company for upward
of a year, and her presence in the
"Florodora" ranks will Vie hailed
with expressions of satisfaction by
those who remember her well-merited
success during her previous engage
ment in Chicago. She will make her
first appearance with the company
week of June 30th.
