The American league soascn ended

The season has been ;r successful
one for the American league clubs, in
spite of the great 'disappointment fur

handicap, under which the new club
in (iotham has struggled along.
Philadelphia has net failed to back
up its champions, although they failed
to land tl'.e flag again. Boston lias
turned out immense week day crowds
for its pennant winners, and Cleveland
has been a money maker all the year.
In spite of the immense salaries paid
some of the stars secured in the iinal
raid on the National league last fall,
before peace was finally declared, tive
clubs in the young organization have
done better than break even. These
are Boston, New York, Philadelphia,

. , IN THE PAST TEN DAYS
With clear, dry weather for a peri-:
od of nearly ten days, says the crop
summary for Illinois for sthe past
week, conditions have been highly fa
vorable for farm work and the ma
turing of the corn crop. A general
rainfall occurred ; the night of the
'6th; otherwise clear, sunshiny-weath
er,-with -drying winds, has obtained
throughout the week. Light frosts
were reported, but no damaging ef
fets ensued. The temperature has
been slightly below normal. The soil
is in excellent condition and -plowing
aud seeding have been actively prs
ccuted. The acreage sown in wheat
wiUprebably show a decrease.
The corn crop in many localities is
already safe from injury, and the re
uutinder is rapidly advancing toward
maturity. While later reports indi
cate some injury from last week's
frosts, the extent of damage is inoon-s-idcrable.
The outlook now is assur
ing. - a in! only severe and untoward
weather conditions will affect the
prospects.; cutting is in active opera
tion in many localities.
Pastures, maintain an excellent con
dition; clover hulling has progressed
with satisfactory yield; broom oin
is being -cut, - quality good; a good
crop of cow-peas-ik being harvested.
The potato crop is below average;
complaints are still -received of con
siderable rotting. Apples continue t
drop, and the yield will show a great
ly reduced amount.
Farmers from the surrounding
country report that while most of the
corn is out of danger of frost there
are yet many fields that were planted
very late in the hope that they might
mature under favorable conditions,
and, if not, might at least make good
forage, that are yet green. This is
about all that is yet in danger, and
with the conditions that have prevail
ed for the past 10 days the grain is

CLINTON IS COMING

GAME PLAYED AT LOCAL PABK
Boys Expect to Scorn Victory Girls
lreparie f"r Batikel-
Clinton high school plays Bock Isl
and high school at the Twelfth street
park next Sat unlay afternoon. The
local team is looking forward confi
dently to Ihe struggle. Of course,
they expect to win. A tie is thought
to be the worst that can happen. The
members feel that they are stronger
than the team of last year, and while
little is known of the strength of the
Clinton team, it is not believed to be
nearly as strong as Davenport, which
Book Island tied last Saturday.
In seasons past when Bock Bland
hail a light team the early games have
nsuallv resulted in victories for the
opposition. Each year- the team,
through good coaching and hard
work, attained a degree of speed and
general efficiency that enabled it to
-surprise near the end of the season
some of the aggregat i.ns that had
been easy victors earlier. It is hoped
that the same degree of improvement
may be noted this fall and that over
confidence, may be an unknown quan
tity i e team. If- this is the case
the s on w ill be a ' glorious one for
tlie red and gold.
Two Banquet Planned.
The indications at present are ihat
the football team will be given two
receptions this fall. It has been cus
tomary for the junior club to give
this function, and, accordingly, Ihe.
members of the A .'A. "A. club, the
junior organization, have begun to
take dancing lessons, a sure indica
tion of their intention 1o entertain
the football boys later. Now whether
it-is because of the unusual excellence
of the football team this year that the
senior boys, the S. 15. I5.s. want to en
tertain them, is not known, but at any
rate thev are planning for a reception
about Nov. 27. The A. '.. X. entertain
ment will tc given a week or two la
ter. At the Schoul.
The captains of the girls basket
ball team met Mondav at the clyse of
school. It was decided that the regu
lar boys game should bo used this
year, as formerly, instead of the game
with courts. Practice nights are to
be arranged for at once and a collec
tion taken with which to purchase
rule books. The captains were re
quested to keep a close watch on their
players in order that the ehoice of
those to compose the high school
leant will be made easier.
