It was a disheartened, not to say
disgusted bunch that crossed the
raging river to the Iowa shore last ev
ening after witnessing an afternoon
of baseball that must have given the
conviction firm root in the minds of all
Davenporters, that there is a real
live hoodoo somewhere about.
On the other hand Roek Island root
ers, and there were many of them,
went home hoarse, sweating and
smiling, more certain than ever before
that Rock Island has a team of phe-
nominal grit and ability to pull out of
a pinch with the assistance of the
proper quantity and qualify 'f root-
ing-,Taking both games of the double-
header tied us in the percentage col
umn with our rivals from Iowa, and
made it 14 straight scheduled games
we have taken from them this season,
besides two beatings administered be
fore the season opened for exhibition
purposes merely, not to mention the
series that we took at the end of last
Remarkable ' Article.
From a number of standpoints the
two games of - yesterday constituted
the most remarkable article of base
ball that has been furnished here
this or any other season. The two
were won almost alike, and after hope
had previously almost entirely tied
from the local fans and players. In
neither game did Rock Island score
till the ninth, and in the second but
one hit had been made off Jones till
that time. In the first Davenport had
played dean ball till the ninth when
four errors were bunched and Rock
Island ran in three scores and won
without a man being put out. In the
second the end was not so immediate,
but none the less certain.
Good rooting had something to do
with the result in each instance, the
crowd waking up in the ninth inning
when something had to be done to
save the day. The nervous tension was
intense in both contests and when the
locals waded in at the finish and won
the effect upon the Rock Island sym
pathizers resembled the sudden re
lease of pressure upon some elastic
gaseous substance there was an ex
plosion, and some remarkable things
were done. Bleachers and grand
stand went literally wild, while the
Davenporters who had been more or
less boistrous in each game took on
the appearance of having a sudden
and severe attack of the ague.
Vlaltlne Players Flcrht.
In the second game the spectators
were' treated to an exhibition of in
ternal strife among the Daven
port players in which fisticuffs were
actively engaged in. Ruby and Crock
ett beinar the belligerents. It came
about during the fourth inning of the
second game and was started by the
manner in which the first game was
lost. Ruby was hot-hended and took
the initiative, limes, had made a bad
throw to first and allowed a man to
be safe, and Ruby charged it up to
Crockett, making the remark that it
was the "old yellow" cropping out of
Crockett that had lost the game.
Crockett resented this and after some
words had been exchanged Ives called
the longfirst baseman a vile name. The
latter started towards Ives, who was
on the bench at the time but another
Davenport player interfered, Ives in
the meantime picking up a bat. The
two sat down with Stauffer between
them and in an instant the- quarrel
was renewed, Ives handing Crockett a
bunch of fives over Stauffer s head.
Hostilities started now in earnest,
and ball plavers were very thick for
an instant. Stauffer was the only one
to suffer in the melee, getting a jab in
the jaw that caused it to subsequently
swell. Umpire- Cusack joined 'the
peacemaking force arid had a salutary
effect in cheeking the trouble.
Vance, the new left-handed pitch
er was a success, in the first game
and. held the visitors down to foiir
hits. He did not appear so difficult
but Davenport could do little with
him. If Vandine had not dropped a
thrown ball and allowed a man safe
on third it is doubtful whether the
Iowans would have seen the plr.te at
all. In the second "Jiggs" Arthur
served the twirlers and was. very
steady, nine hits, 'well scat tercd ex
cept in the eighth being made off him
in the 11 innings. Roth pulled out of
some tight places that would probably
have lost their games if they had been
n tellers' Battle.
The second game was a contest of
pitchers till the latter part, Davenport
scoring in the eighth. Ruby started
with a hit and Lyons walked. Osteen
bunted safe rrnd then Crockett fiew to
Graham and one run came in. I lines
made the hit that brought another,
but Alperman and Williams put them
in the atmosphere and both went to
Rock Mand did not get a look until
the ninth and Manager Donnelly be
gan, it. He hit a warm one to Jones,
who speared at it and lost it, Hines
running in and making a low throw
to first. Donnelly apparently had the
ball beaten anvwav and when it went
past Crockett he got up and raced to
second with time to spare. Graham
flew out and it came Vandine's turn.
The doughty thirdbaseman was there
with the necessary and straightened
out one into the right field corner
that came near getting out of the lot
at that remote district. Lyons raced
after it and could not get to it in lime,
though he was playing well out. Don
nelly came home and Vandine camped
on third. Jones purposely gave
O'Leary his base and in his anxiety
to prevent him from getting in reach
of the ball he tossed cne clear over
Williams' head and Vandine came in
with tying run. , Lister sm-ickcd a
hot one down to Osteen and a double
Two Chances r.ost.
Rock Island had a good chance to
score in the loth but was cut off with
a double play and llunkie Hines put
out a two-bagger when first up in the
11th and then died at third. Donnelly
was first up in the 11th for the home
team and as usual he started some
thing with a hot one that hit the um
pire Graham neatly sacrificed hi:n
and Vandine, unable this time to de
liver hit a popup and was out. O'Leary
fame up next and remembering the
disaster that had attended giving him
a base on the former occasion Jones
put one within his reach and a clean
single to left field, the first hit the
Rock Island catcher had made in the
two games, was the result. DoiuieMy
scored and the game was over. Score:

Jack Tliiery. Rockford's forinei
catcher and outfielder, has been re
leased by Newark of the Eastern
league at his own request and is now
leading off the batting list with Buf
falo. "He is consoling him and helping
him fix his bib" commented one of the
interested women in the grand stand
when O'Leary paused to assist Wil
liams after one of the first innings in
the second game.
Donnelly started the trouble in each
instance yesterday and was helped
along bv Vandine's batting. The man-
iger made three out of the six runs
for Roek Island and andine made
five out of the 12 hits.
Dal Williams expression after Jones
tossed the ball over his head that let
in the lying run in the ninth was a
study in pain and disgust as he slam
med his mask on the ground and went
back to pick up the sphere.
Mr. and Mrs. James ('rum, of New
castle, Pa., who have been in the city
for a week, were allowed yesterday to
see their son for the first time since
Jus injury on the Davenport ball field.
They had a nice little' visit with him.
He is showing gradual improvement.
The attitude of some of the spec
tators of the game in yelling at Man
ager Frank Belt is uncalled for, un
manly and ungent lemanly. Belt has
been playing a most excellent game
both in fielding ami batting and has
been driving his critics to ta!l timber.
His manner on the field elicits com
mendation. Springfield News.
There is much interest in amateur
baseball in the lower end of the coun
ty and today two jjamrs are being
played at Reynolds, 'Andalusia nlid
Edgington playing the first and the
winner playing Reynolds. There arc
two foot race scheduled also, the
first after the morning game between
Andalusia .and Edgington sprinters
and the winner running against one
from Reynolds after the last game.
In the ninth inning in both games
some strange things were done by
the Rock Island sympathizers. One
woman arose and made a speech, not
a word of which was audible, and she
finally drew those immediately about
her from the game itself. Another
lady broke a $12 parasol pounding the
floor of the grand stand. Several
came off with torn clothing from be
ing hauled ibout by frenzied neigh
bors. Ben Caffryn, the Orphans' hard hit
ting left fielder, is in Peoria, having
been called there by the death of his
father, Jacob Caffryn. Monday morn
ing a telegram was received announc
ing his father's serious illness. As
Caffryn stepped on the train another
message was handed him.' saying his
father was dead. Mr. Caffryn, who

promptly to a cut, bruise or burn it
allays the pain and causes the injury

usually required, and as it is an anti
