bring a smile every time. When the
contest was over 2.00O people tiled out
of the Twelfth street park and there
was 1.950 smiles, each approximately
a yard in breadth and fully as deep.
There were ") long visages that their
owners carried with them across the
Father of Waters to Davenport. Last
night the sweet sound, of those two
smacks when (Irahain's and Lister's
bats kissed the ball in the 11th inning
were heard by many a fan in dream
land. Such a finish has seldom been seen
on the home grounds. In fact such a
finish has seldom been seen on any
grounds. After giving the Commo
dores three on bad plays, the only
ones made, after vainly pushing the
ball out p gainst a stone wall of a
field for eight long innings without a
ghost of a seore, afttjr having prac
tically given up hope, then to walk up
and swat the leather for four hits anil
a tie. and in the 11th to hammer out
a winning with two princely three
baggers, that would do credit to any
c'uiiiud would inspire the ijios't
luke-warm spectator. The merit of
the performance is not lessened by
the fact that Koxy Walters, the phe
nom. who has not yet been beaten,
was in the box for the visiting team.
Visitors Were UuiKtronii
The game rather looked like De
catur's till the ninth. The Commo
doreis had a habit of pettinjr on bases
in some manner, and Case's steady
work and good support was all that
prevented them from scoring. Finally,
along in the sixth they broke over,
but not without assistance. Thorn
ton popped up to Vandine and that
settled hint. MeFnrland and Kuhn
each hit safelv and then II. Walters
struck out. K. Walters hit a slow one
to Vandine. and was out easily, but
Van threw the ball into the bleachers.
It was returned almost instantly by
someone in the crowd.- ami (ase neiti
it in the box, but not before Me Far-
land had raced home and Kuhn stood
on third. K. Walters had taken but
one base and now he. proceeded to
steal second. O'Leary threw the ball
to Dwyer and Kuhn came in. the
shortstop making a poor return.
Krebs then srave Vandine another
chance, and Van again sailed the ball
as high as before end it was a long
time coming out of the bleechers.
Both runners came home but Umpire
Hart allowed but one base and put
Kuhn back on second. The latter
promptly stole-third and attempted to
steal home. Whether he would have
succeeded or not is a question, for
Case threw quickly and hit (Jruebner,
who was at bat. and Krebs went back
to his base. Weigand dropped a foul
into Va-ndine's mit. That was all for
the visitors, though in the ninth it
looked bad when Krebs, hrst up, got
transportation. A line drive, to left
field that seemed good for a couple
of sacks led him to lead oft so far
that Crum caught the ball, there was
no trouble in getting him out and
making a double.
Thouscht It Was Settled.
When the last half of the ninth ar
rived several Davenporters arose and
walked out of the grandstand.
"There's absolutely nothing to it,"
said one with absolute satisfaction.
But the remark applied to Decatur, as
the event proved. Wind was first up
on the batting list, but he had not
been doing very well. In fact Vandine
and Lister were the only ones who
had gathered anything off Walters'
speedy delivery. Just to change the
luck Brennani, the new pitcher, was
sent in. He made a couple of passes
at the horsehide and ended by putting
one down to Wright so hot that
Z T "My

gentleman jumped right up in the air
and it hit him on the shins. Vandine
put out a hot grounder, but" it -was
gobbled by ("ruebner and there was
one down. Graham next up smashed
one down past short just a trifle too
hot to get in front of and Brennnn
moved up. Then it came O'Leary 's
turn. He had not hit up to this time,
but he had a hit coming and he
proceeded to get it, a safe one against
the centerfield fence. Two runs. Lis
ter had made three in a row so he
flew out to left. Next it was Dwyer's
turn, but Manager Donnelly, who had
been sitting on the bench, made up
his mind that he could d; it better,
so he. picked up a bat and brought
O'Leary home with a beautiful drive
to center. This told the seore, and
the side retired at I.a timer's out.
lilt Right Combination;
With two new men in the line-up
there had to be a readjustment, so
Breiinan went to right, Graham went
to short and Donnelly to center.

was out. Graham next hit the ball
so hard that it flattened out like a
pancake ami sailed until it couldn't
sail any further and finally brought
up -against the fence away over in the
southeast corner of the lot. He
stopped on third. O'Leary could not
duplicate his former performance and
he went down on an infield drive.
But Lister had a package with him
and he proceeded to deliver it. II.
Walters picked up the ball exactly
where he did after Graham hit it and
the game was over. Seore:

Saturday's game was one of those
satisfying ones in which the intercut
was kept up till the end and' then iho
end was of the right sort. John Ar
thur was put up against t long and
ungain'y youth named Balliet.
Though the latter was no novice Ar
thur clearly had him outclassed.
Eleven of the "Bumpsticks" hit at the
empty atmosphere, and three hits was
all they could get. Koek Island's
scoring was done in the third when
three runs were batted in with the
assistance of a pair of passes and a
poorly executed' fielder's choice. In
the fourth Iecatur tied with two,
having one in the third. It happened
that only two men were given passes
by Arthur and both scored. In the
eighth, after a long, succession of 0's
on the scoreboard. Lister planked
out a two-bagger and Dickey dupli
cated the feat, bringin,' him in.

MANY GO TO SPEND DAT
AT THE ILLINOIS CAPITAL
The Koek Island road took out a
good-sized excursion to Springfield
Saturday night, about 250 leaving
this city and Moliue to spend the day
with the boys of the Cth regiment at
camp and to see the sights of the
capital. It was one of the most or
derly Saturday night excursions ever
run out of the city, say the railroad
men. It was also one of the best
equipped. Seven cars were in the
train, two being vhair cars and the
other high back day conches. The
train left here late in the evening and
irrived at Springfield about 4:30 in
the morning. A pleasant day was
put in and the return was made under
favorable circumstances, the train
reaching this city at 3 a. m. today.
