when the home ball tossers were just
on Lie verge of getting the bitters be
tween the visitors' teeth but in each
instance the latter wriggled away and
upset the prescription. Tho business
was done in the eighth. Then after
O'Leary had ilowu to Ruby and Van
dine had perished on a roller Wanne;1
shot a nice undulating grounder down
to Scharnweber. The latter knocked
it down and picked It up a couple ol
times before firing it over to Smith,
just after the runner had arrived. It
was up to Berger then and Joe dup'i

and beat the ball in by a good margin.

and Wanner had got on with a hit af
ter one was out. Berger drove the
ball with a terrific smash clear to thi

distance as if Thornton could never
reach it, but Wanner, dancing near sec

FROM THE DOPE BOX.
At Evansville yesterday the hone
team seemed unable to win from South
Bend so the crowd took matters in
hand and saw that the second contest
of a double header was saved. In the
first samo "Umpire Killea made a de
cision in the ninth that gave South
Bend a run and tied the score , and
again in the 10th his ruling gave thi
visitors two runs and the game. The
