luster of the second star in magnitude
in Donnelly's constellation of pitcher.
when Moore's passes were followed
with the necessary hits to yield a score
f to 1.
Christy Wilson was on the firing line
for the Islanders and had things pretty
much his own way. He was stingy wit a
!iis passes and gave but six, hits, which
were sufficiently scattered to render the
plate exceedingly difficult to negotiate
for the Senators. Both sides fielded
brilliantly, the only error made being
one by andine on a hard chance.

Superintendent H B. Hayden by
Chance Finds Blaze at
STARTED IN PILE OF WASTE
Happened to Enter to Write a Letter
and Noted the Odor of
By av piece of good fortune the Rock
Island high school building was saved
from probable destruction by fire last
evening. Superintendent H. B. Hay
den chanced to enter the building and
I discovered an incipient blaze that
would have broken out into flames dur
ing the night and probably would have
secured a start before being noticed
that would have rendered it exceeding
ly difficult to combat.
Mr. Hayden, In passing the building
about 9 o'clock in the evening, be
thought him of a letter that he desired
to write and accordingly went in. The
moment he opened the door the odor
of smoke was noted and its resem
blance to that of burning varnish and
oil caused him to think at once of the
manual training room where such ma
terials were used when school was in
session. He investigated and found
the manual training room dense with
Returning to the telephone he sent
in a still alarm to the fire department,
which responded in quick time, and
after some search located the cause in
a wire basket partly filled with cotton
waste that had been used about the
machinery in the manual training de
partment and in rubbing down paint
on some of the articles of furniture
made by the pupils. The waste had
been lying in the basket three weeks
or more and spontaneous combustion
was the result.
The firemen carried the basket out
on the sidewalk and a bucket of water
squelched the fire. When moved the
waste began to glow, showing that it
was on the point of breaking out into
This fortunate discovery saves the
new building costing $175,000 which
was built to replace the old building
burned by a lire the origin of which
was as mysterious as this one would
have been had not Superintendent Hay
den happened to enter tbv building at
the time he did.
DOPE FOR THE FANS.
Spr'ngfield was counting on getting
at least two and perhaps all three from
Spanton. Rock Island's first base
man. is receiving treatment for mala
ria in the hospital.
Tomorrow begins the three at Deca
tur and then the team comes home to
meet Davenport across the river for
the Fourth of July series.
Converse pitched again yesterday
for Ottumwa and lost through the er
rors of the team behind him. Shaub,
too, is playing with the same team in
the Iowa league.
Dubuque's defeat and Cedar Rapids'
victory yesterday ties those two teams
for the head of the percentage column.
Rock Island is also but a few points be
low Davenport and another day may
see the teams exchange places.
Catcher Wolf of Cairo, reported at
Springfield Monday to play on the
Springfield team. He went out to take
a street car ride and since then noth
ing has been seen of him. Donnelly
is unable to account for his disappear
ance. Springfield Register: "Hank" Wal
ters was given the "glad band" yester
day as he shook hands with Ludwig.
It was Ludwig. It will be remembered,
who threw the ball that accidentally
injured Walters so seriously last year.
It is a pleasure to see "Hank" in the
game again. He is a good player and
a nice fellow.
Evidently the sporting writer on the
Sprinfield News is fighting space or
something more stimulating to the im
agination for he turns out a line of
dope which is the wildest yet seen on
this circuit. It is given below merely
as a curiosity, not that it merits seri
ous consideration or answer at this
end of the line: "Will the
Rock Island and Davenport teams
be consolidated? This has been
the unanswered question propounded
by the magnates of the clubs from the
tri cities. They will not affirm that
such a" move is on foot and has been
taken unde'r consideration by the own
ers of the two clubs, nor will they ven
ture the assertion that it is improbable.
They merely state that it is hardly
likely that anything of that kind will
happen just now. It is true that the
base ball magnates interested in the
success of both clubs, have for some
time been figuring on a method of cut
ting down expenses and as these clubs
are controlled by men of good business
sense and ability it is not at all im
probable that they will come to some
agreement whereby they will be able
to pick a winning team from the two
aggregations and send them out not only
for the pennant, but also for the money.
They realize that a winning team Is a
good investment but that a losing
bunch of players Is about the limit of
endurance for a man who has money
at stake. Besides they figure on the
advertisement the town will receive
by being the receiver of the pennant.
Davenport and Kock island nave Dotn
expensive teams touring the circuit
and two grounds are being maintained.
but should the clubs be consolidated
before the close of tbis or at the open
ing of next season both grounds will
still he maintained and the team will
play alternately in the two cities. The
only difficulty at present in the way of
a satisfactory agreement in the rlvary
at present existing between the fans
of the two cities and the owners of the
different clubs, but it Is thought that
when they are shown a satisfactory
way to 'save their honor" and at the
same time a little money they will
agree on a basis for the consolidation
of the teams."

How to Break Up a Cold.
It may be a surprise to many to
learn that a severe cold can be com
pletely broken up In one or two days'
time. The first symptoms of a cold
are a dry, loud cough, a profuse watery
discharge from the nose, and a thin,
white coating on the tongue. When
Chamberlain's cough remedy is taken
every hour on the first appearance of
these symptoms, it counteracts the ef
fect of the cold and restores the sys
tem to a healthy condition within a
day or two. For sale by all leading
