costly. The contest was close and
exciting and proved tirst class enter

inning. There were two men out
with li Dill on third base and Ucrte
was at bat. The catcher dropped
the ball after it had been delivered.

Thrilling Experience of Willie
Clart.ofPort " '' 'v
Willie Clark, a Port Dyron lad,
came near losing his life Wednesday
by being 'buried in sand. Jie nn'd
some other lads were digging a cave
in a bank in that vicinity and they
succeeded in removing the diet from
quite a large hole, leaving some in
the center to act as a post. Willie
thought it would be safe enough to
remove the post so he crawled in and
tore it away. In an instant the bank
caved in. burying bmi completely.
The other boys ran for help nnd the
first to arrive worked fast and soon
succeeded in pulling him out just in
time, for he was badly suffocated.
He said he fell with his face resting
on his arm which gave him -a chance
to breathe freely for a short, time.
Had his face been buried in the dirt
be would not have survived many

Rock Island's schedule for next
week, beginning tomorrow, is as fol
lows: At Davenport tomorrow; at
home Monday morning, with Daven

noon; at home with Roekford Tues
day, - Wednesday and Thursday; at
home with Davenport Friday and
Sunday; at Davenport Saturday. The
local team closes the season n't Rock
ford. playing there Sept. S. 9 and 10.
The manner in which Davenport
has braced up and defeated Rockford
in the prest nt series is stirring great
interest in the two oities over the
series that Rock Island and Daven
port will begin across the river Sun
day. 1 lie fwo teams are now olnse
enough that the result of the series
played together may change their
relative positions in the percentage
column and it is certain to be a fight
to the finish when they meet. The
morning game Labor day will be
played in this city and will begin at
'. o'clock, in order to get out of the
way if the parade in Davenport.. The
afternoon game will be played at
Ifcivenport and will 1h called at 3
o'clock. The closing scries of the
season between the two teams will be
played next Friday, Saturday anil

The Aurora Zouaves cancelled en
gagements covering nearly a year's
time in order to return home. The
boys from Illinois spent about a year
in the cities .of -continental Europe
giving their exhibitions of marvelous
drilling and earned the title "Best
drilled soldiers in the world" from
the nobility and royalty of these for
eign lands. Intending tr remain
away from home but for a few weeks,
their success was so great that offers
of engagements came so fast that'al
most before they knew it they were
consigning thehiselves to a long exile
from their native land. As many of
them had business interests nt Au
rora that could be no longer neglect
ed they secured, a cancellation of
their engagements by agreeing to go
back at some future time. Once here
the management of the Adam Fore

shows made them a propositon for
the present season that they could
not afford to refuse, and they will be
seen here with these shows when
they exhibit, Saturday, Sept. 0.

(1. M. Stonebraker, the well known
yardmaster of the Rock Island road
in this city, has tendered his resigna
tion to take effect Sept. l.", or before,
if a successor is appointed within
that time. This is an announcement
that is causing a great deal of sur
prise and no little regret among the
friends and associates of the gentle
man in question.
Mr. Stonebraker has been foreman
of the local yards several years anil
since the completion of the yard at
Xatick he has had charge of that and
the Moline yard also. During his con
nection with the Rock Island road
he has amply demonstrated his abil
ity a- railroad man, besides winning
friends among all classes of employes
on the line. - He states that he has no
plans for his future but expects first
of all to take a needed rest.
Shirt In Crew
A general shifting of local freight
arrangements on the Burlington goes
into effect tomorrow, the passenger
trains not being in any manner af
fected. The changes are of such a
nature that two freight crews will
be laid off, although the same num
ber of trains will continue to be run
as in the past,-the mileage of the
crews left on being increased. A Chi
cago division crew will run into this
city in place of the one on trains
l.j and 4' now in charge of Conductor
Keller, and Conductor Van Arsdel's
crew that has been running one of
the trains between Monmouth and
Clinton will also give way. The Mon
mouth train will end its run here.
The Sterling-Monmouth local will
also run into this city. The Chicago
train will come in by way of Clinton
and Davenport, so that al merchan

through Sterling will come the other

During Ihe week the boilers for the
plant that will heat the entire depot
have been placed in the basement of
the baggage and express building for
which the foundation has been com
pleted and now the erection of the
super-structure is under way.
One of the objects of the visit here
Thursday of (ienernl Supt. liobbs and
Supt. Nichols, of the Illinois division,
was. 4o .consider' tU nd isubilit v , of
making certain badly needed re
pairs about the local roundhouse and
other buildings. With the amount of
work that is now being done at the
yards in this city the old buildings
are being taxed to the limit. There
is an evident desire on ihe part of
the company, however, to make them
last till better faeilities now being
planned can bo provided.
The more - experienced firemen
running into this city have boon noti
fied that they will Jie given engines if
they will remove to the new line of
the company in the southwest. A
mi in b r of the younger men have
signified an intent of accepting the
offer and as a result there will be a
number of promotions to record in
the near f uture.
Freight business is very good and
the switching crews are being worked
now as never before. 'When the re
moval of the terminus for the west
bound business from Xatick to this
city took place a few weeks ago it
was thought that, two engines could
le laid off. A few days experience
proved that this Was impracticable

Editor Argus, Rock Island. HI.:
I have recently had a conversation
with R. A. Cox, of your town, regard
ing the"formation of a roller polo
league in the vicinity of Rock Island
and Davenport. Mr. Cox seemed to
think that the affair should be suc
cessful, but referred me to you for
an export opinion.
My scheme was to take a few star
players of experience from the east
and recruit the teams from ania
tuer and semi-professional men now
in the west. The circuit to be Rock
Island, Davenport, Clinton and Mo
line. One eastern player to each club.
These men' would act as captains and
receive $:!0 a week. The balance of
the players to bo as stated, four to
a club, and they to get from .12 to
$1" a week. This would keep the
payroll down to $!() a week, which is
a' very low figure."
Roller polo is the best of all in
door games. It is taking well in
Munice. Racine, and other towns in
Indialia anil Illinois, and would do so
in your towns.
I wonll organize the league in this
manner: Have ro shares of stock for
each club. 1 to have general super
vision of all four clubs and receive
10 shares of stock in each. The other
shares in each to be sold at par to
finance the clubs. Par aluo of stock
Each club to pay the visitng club
actual expenses and keep the balance,
'fwo games a week for each town,
also Sunday games. Thus you see on
atlendanee of J .000 for the entire
week would pay a handsome profit to
each club. Admission 2." and .10
I have had much experience both as
a club manager and ofticinl of league
and would do all the digging up of
necessary funds, organize the club,
etc. Can also sign the eastern
The game can be played on any
surface size from .".sxi;.-, feet to fillxsO
feet. A seating capacity of sou is
sufficient. Detachable bleachers can
be put up for a moderate cost. The
game is sure to lake an I create great
