Manager Tighe gave the local team
a lengthy practice yesterday to take
out the kinks that were so paint'ul'y
apparent Sunday in the game with the
Davenport Independents. A numb.i
of the players are complaining of so: e

It was great to watch those game
sters play ball Sunday. They hit like
demons, fielded like veterans, dumped
exasperating bunts in front of the
platter, and did other stunts that
would have kept an outsider guessing
as to which was the professional team.

Rock Island for winning the 1907 pen

when Walt Davis' independents .if
Davenport defeated Manager Tighe's
bunch of socalled league stars by a
score of 7 to 4. .The defeat was a bit

Worse still for the Islanders, the
game was played on their home
grounds, which makes the defeat a:l
the more humiliating. The Davenpoit
team outbatted and outfielded Tighe's
men and made by far the better show
ing in all departments of the game.

THE WOMEN OF ROCK ISLAND
DEMAND A SQUARE DEAL
They refuse to spend half and more than half the day in the
kitchen breaking down their health and working like slaves.
They refuse to attempt to cook on a dirty old stove, clean up
allies and shovel coal and suffer from backache all the time.
Yes, they refuse to do this woman-killing work because they
know that the very minute The (las Man installs a clean, labor saving
Gas Range, kitchen work becomes a pleasure.
With a (ias Range they have a tire where and when they want
it. There are no ashes, no soot, in fact little or no dirt of any sort to
clean up. Then the cost of a Range is only about ten dollars, and the
gas costs but one dollar for a thousand feet.
"Let the (Jas Man do the work" while you cook in comfort.

As was to be expected the Daven

with glee over the remarkable suc
cess of their independent ball team io
trimming the Islanders Sunday. Hav
ing in all the years that the Three

denied the opportunities of getting
away with any considerable numb
of games with Rock Island where tin;
results counted in a pennant race, the
pajiers that stand for Davenpoit are
quite naturally elated over what hap
pened Sunday and uo one is quite so
mean as to deny them such satisfac
tion as they may indulge. at this par
ticular moment. But the extremes to
which their satisfaction lead them a.-e
somewhat amusing nevertheless, :s
