One of the hardest fought contests
of the season was that between Itock
Island and Decatur yesterday after
noon, the locals winning out in the
ninth by a hitting rally by the close
score "of 2 to 1. It was u pitchers'
battle throughout, ami .lack lire una n,
who made his bow in a Kock Island
uniform, carried away his share of
the honors, being credited with eight
strike-outs and at the same time
holding Dcvnttir to live singles. Wci
gand was in the box for the Commo
dores and for seven innings held
Kock Island to one lone hit. Vandine
busied himself in the ninta and made
one of his- old-time hits way out to
the corner of the fence ami when
the ball was located lie 1 ad covered
tcrritt ry for three bast's. This was
the turning point in the game. Deca
tur having seered one run in thelirst
half of tiie ninth. When Dickey bat
ted in bister with "the second taMy
the game, was won in a whirlwind
finish and the crowd left happy.
For eight innings the teams played
even with two long rows of "goose
eggs" lined tip on the score board.
In the ninth it looked as though Kock
Island had thrown the game away
when Latimer, with a man on third,
attempted to throw Weigand out at
second. Nobody was an where near
the base and the leather calmly sail
ed on out into the pasture. (Iruebner
raced home from third and the Kock
Island rooters fedt di..j, as it looked
as though the Decat tirites would be
able to blank the locals again. Hut
Vandine saved the day with his vigor
ous hit. lie scored on a fielder's
choice, the ball being knocked to
Kuliu so hard that it almost lost its
cover en route. Kuhn. by a. miracle,
managed to stop it. and ignoring Cra
ham. who iiit, attempted to throw
Vandine out at the home plate. The
ball ji reived too late and the bleach
ers celebrated the tying of the score
in. an appropriate manner, (iraham
was caught at. second, Latimer was
hit by the ball while making a third
strike and called out by the umpire.
The ball caught him in the shoulder
and knocked him out for a minute.
Lister located first on a ladder's
choice and scored on Dickey's hit.
The game was played without Man
ager Donnelly in his aocnslomed posi
tion in center. His place was taken
by (Iraham. while Wind played in
right. field. Kock Island made
errors in Ihe first inning, but soon
braced and kept the visitors away
from the plate.
Makes Good Iuipreftnlon.
Hrcnnan displayed good form in the
box and rmide a good first impres
sion, lie has speed and a deceptive
ball, though at times he showed a
slight tendency to wihlness. Hrcnnan
was also credited with a single that
came within an ace of being a home
run. The ball went nxvay out to the
score board, touched the top of it and
dropped back into the enclosure.

"The circus is one of the old-fashioned
-kind, the performance being
given in one ring, and is pronounced
everywhere the best of the smaller

Division Agent Hcrry is to resign from
the charge of the St. Lo'ds division.
If this proves to be true it will not
occasion a great oval of surprise here,
though there is no official confirma

previous period, since the line was

Obarrvlnir Kitrrmn Kcocomy.
There is every evidence that the
management of the Kock Island road
is not planning to take off trains on
branch lines of the sysdYm purely out
of a desire to make the greatest
amount of money with the smallest
possible outlay, but that there is real
necessity for economy. The order to
reduce expenses has gone to every
department, and is being carried out
to the letter. A disregard for appear
ances even is manifested, as is- evi
denced by the laying off of engine

that, many machines go out without
receiving; any external attention.
When such measures as this are tak
