In a long and .slow game the Daven
port boys succeeded in beating out
Rock Island at thefr park yesterday af
ternoon, with a score of 6 to 5. For
the greater part of the game the Is
landers could see nothing but "23V.
and it was not until the sixth inning
that they had a look-in. They fumbled,
missed 'em entirely and' did every
thing but get the ball in their pockets,
meanwhile the Kennedy bunch was pil
ing up scores. In the fourth inning
they had six, but their counting end
ed there. Before the monkey business
came to a close five errors had accum
ulated, while the Davenporters had but
Quit on l.nknfl.
Wilson was in the box for the first
four innings, and when Lakaff went in
there was nothing more doing. There
was nothing wrong with Wilson's work,
but everybody back of him seemed to
be buffaloed. Six hits were counted
against him. but these could have been
cut down if the rest of the boys had
been in the game.
Davenport started scoring the first
inning. Ruby was passed and Curtis
sacrificed. Harrod hit for two bases,
scoring Ruby and he came in on Burg's
single. Wanner dropped the ball al
lowing Burg to reach second and a
single by Tischer advanced the runner
to third. From there he stole home.
Errors Add Two.
Vandine fumbled one from Brugge
man and an error by McClelland gave
the runner second base, Curtis scoring
him with a two base hit. After two
were out in the third Roland handed
a wild one to McClelland making Ow
ens safe at the first station. The run
ner stole second and scored on another
misplay by McClelland in handling one
from Bruggemann. Ruby made the
last count, in the fourth inning. His
single was followed by a sacrifice by
Curtis and a long single by Ramey.
Ilita IlrlOR Rub.
After five long Innings without get
ting more than in sight of the home
plate, the Islanders landed on Lelivelt
and made two scores. Wanner put one
down between the third baseman and
the bag and Harrod helped some with
his error in handling one from Van
dine. A single by McClelland advanc
ed both men and a clean one over the
first baseman by Roland brought them
In the eighth McClelland started the
ball rolling with a single to right field.
Roland was given a pass and Lakaff
was given first base while McClelland
was being caught rt third. Gray came
along with a long felt want to left
field, scoring Roland. Carlisle's three
bagger scored both Gray and Lakaff.
By this time Davenport was badly
frightened as the Islanders were only
one behind. Visions of those ninth in
ning finishes came before both players
and rooters as Johnny Wanner came
up in the last round and pounded out
a clean single. Vandine was next with
a long one to center field, but it fell in
a well. Then came a lucky finish for
Davenport. McClelland put one down
to Evans that was on the cannon ball
trdcr, going on a line about three feet
from the ground. The pitcher caught
it like he would a football, with his
arm and body, and hardly knew he had
it. He came to in time to catch Wan
ner, who was well off to second, and
it was all over.

Waiting is discouraging.
Prompt action pleases everybody.
A burden on the back Is a hei-.vy
Hard to bear day after day.
Harder still year after year.
Lifting weight, removing the burden,
Brings appreciating responses.
Rock Island people tell of it.
Tell how it can be done.
Tell of relief that's quick and sure.
Here Is a case of it:
John Mager, of 223 Eighteenth
street, proprietor of the architectural
iron and' brass works, says: "There
were such' terrible pains through my
kidneys that I could hardly sit down
or get up without suffering from sharp,
shooting pains through my back. In
the morning I often felt so lame and
sore that I could not get up and I was
practically rolled out of bed, and more
than once my wife has assisted me to
get up. I had my attention called to
Doan's Kidney Pills and got a box at
a drug store. A few doses seemed
to relieve me. As I continued taking
the remedy the pains grew
less, and after using one .box I was
nearly free from them. I got a second
box, and before I had finished it the
trouble left me."

Tri-City Press Club Members Believe
They Are Bringing Here Greatest
Drama of the Day.
Judging by the manner in which the
people of the tri-cities have been re
serving seats since Saturday morning
for "The Clansman." which the Tri
City Press club will present at the Bur

and evening the play will have one o!
the largest houses that the house has
seen this season. There are still some
good seats left but they are going rap
idly. "'The Clansman broke the house
record for the season." writes a corre
spondent of The Billboard last week.
That is about the way the play is re
ceived all over the country. It deals
with the race problem, but is not an
appeal to race prejudice. It presents
!he problem from a new side, the
southern side, and with the force of

author, playwright and comedian, put
on his clever play, "The Mayor of To

Though the troupe is not excessively

While Mr. Carle does not appear in
