There was more of the same yes

fiendish work in early and had enough
to last. When the ball came. ;iiig"h
ihey knocked it dovtn to the ground
snd bounced it over the infield; when
it came low they scooped it up and
cropped it jur.t too far in for out
fielders to get. and when it came just
right Ihcy lammed it out over the left
field fence for home runs.
There was some satisfaction.

we could not hit him hard enough to
gather runs, there was relief, if netti

spectators went home fteling that

It was in the seventh that the
hange was made and the locals
wanted only six to tie the score.
Four of them were forthcoming, but
Rusty" Owens, who took the pla.ee
f the deposed Beedles, stt auied down

seventh everybody succeeded in kcep-

hours in the playing and seldom has

the players and Umpire Head. Some
times there wo more than one and
everybody got into them.
Beulow, who got the first homer
on the local grounds this season, re

hit that han been made .ince Harry
Tate put the one over the east end

Get IJte Start.
Uock Island did not begin to score
till the visitors had seven and it
didn't look ns though there was any
i'se. That was in the fourth. V," right
flew out to left field and Wilkinson:
i iter living on an error, was. forced
nt second. Williams, who lived on
the last out, scored on a hit by Sthu
Ir after Weihraueh had taken a base
n a second error. Smith flew out to
short. The situation was the same
in the seventh, when Smith led off
by making an out on a foul. Beedles
showed signs of unsteadiness and
gave Miller a pass. Then the crowd
went after him and he did the same
thing by Donnelly. An error at short
on the throw over to first let Gra
ham live and Wright came to bat.
Xiccls had been silting in the grand
tt a rid up till this time, but here he
took to the field and Biedies came
out of the box. Owens went in and
gave Wright a base. Wilkinson drop
ed a popup into Owens hands and
then Williams hit and two runs came
in. An error by Beulow let Weih
rauch live and another sec re came in.
Scbuler flew to the outfield. Good
chances in the ninth yielded one run.
Wright died oil a fly and Wilkinson
got a base. Williams lived on fan er
ror. Wilkinson came in on AVeih
rauch's out and Schuler ended it with
a long fly to riglit.
Where tbe Game Was Won.
The Rockfordites. fell into the game
in the second with two men out and
with ringles by Pattison, Bufka and
Lippert and two-baggers by Thiery
and Beedles, made four inns. Beu
low got the next in the third with
his clean home run. In the fourth
Thiery n-ade a hit, but was caught at

In the meantime Stark rolled down

Having made it my business to inves

patrons can have ready access to
their places of business.
It is no longer a financial imposs
bility. When properly organized and

Adam Forepnugh and Sells Broth
ers' united shows are exhibiting a
feature this season which eclipses
in point of sheer daring anything
ever attempted in any arena. It is
the famous Diavlo in "his looping
the loop" on a bicycle, an act which
created the profoundest sensation
in New York city and Philadelphia,
and elicited more jwaise and was
given more space in t he . metropoli
tan press than any single act ever
presented to the public.
Looping the loop is described as

which is as near correct as words
can make it. From the extreme
height of the canvas dome Diavalt
makes a thrilling descent down the
narrow plane cm a bicycle and the
momentum thus gained carries him
around the loop at a terrific rate of
speed. At the tjp of the loop
both rider and wheel are up

rate of -10 miles an hour. It is
a hair-raising act anrl one that all
should see, as it arives a practical
lemonstration of the first scientific

circle of a bucket full of water with

here is Saturday, Sept. 6.
Chamberlain's Cough Kemedy'has a
remarkable record. It has been in
use over thirty years, during which
time many million bottles have been
sold and used. It has long been the
standard and main reliance in the
treatment of croup in thousands
of homes, yet during this time no
case has ever been reported to the
manufacturers in which it failed to
effect a cure. When given as soon as
the child becomes hoarse or even as
soon as the croup cough appears, it
will prevent the attack. It is pleas
ant to take, many children like it. It
contains' no opium or other harmful
substance and may be given as confi
dently to a baby as to an adult. For
