Later he went to Atlanta and has been

victim of malaria so that he was not
in shape to do his best. He has been
anxious for some time to get his re
lease and on finally obtaining it, he im

that this climate will bring him around

We'd like to hear Dick Kinsella s
comment on the Cedar Rapids series
Peoria Star. It would probably form
an interesting climax to his comment
on the Rock Island series.
Blooniington Pantagraph: Pre-i-
dent Holland received a letter from
Ftank Donnelly yesterday asking it
Umpire Setley had made a report can
celling the double header played a
Cedar Rapids Saturday. Donnelly d
clared that there was no betting and
that the action of Setley in ejecting a
spectator was entirely unnecessary.
Setley appears to be getting in bad
odor out west.
Manager Tighe is still optimistic an i
in this respect is sustaining his repu
tation as a finish fighter. He will not
be out of the pennant race till counte 1
out. Nevertheless, he is looking th
situation squarely in the face and it U
hi3 opinion that in order to make the
winning of the rag fairly sure Rock
Island must do better than take two
out of three from both Peoria and De
catur in the next six days.
