expressed deep regret at not belli:
able to finish his career in Decat.u
with pennant winners, but finds con
eolation in the fact that the Commo
dores were beaten by but one othei
club. He had hoped to receive orde
from Chicago to report to White Sox
headquarters immediately after thr
close of the Three-Eye season that h
might at least have a chance to wit
ness the world's championship series
but now that Comiskey has label'
hick at seeonu, wnicn leaves nis m
field intact once more, there is ao
need of Billy reporting until net
spring. The former Commodore will
go with them on iheir sprins trail
ing trip next year.
John Hall of this city, secretary for
the Iowa league, has completed th-?
work of compiling the batting and
fielding averages of the players and
some of the figures have been submit
ted for publication. It is found tint
John House of Burlington leads th.?
regular players in batting with an
average of -.30S. Perhaps th inns'
notable fact brought out is the in
crease in attendance for the league
this year over last. This amounts 'o
nearly sn.ooo, taking the entire cir
cuit, the total being 210.401. All the
towns except Marshalltown are up to
the limit of 20.000. Marshalltown it
is expected will he dropped next sen
son and as this will leave Waterloo
too remote from the, other cities it
likely that this place will withdraw.
Following are the attendance figuros
for the various cities:
Hill v Purtell, Decatur's third base
man, who lias been fold to the While
Sox, has seen Larry Doyle in actio!
and wiites to the Decatur Herald tint
ltoyie says tne iiiants cant win pen
nants until some of the old ones ar
lopped off. Purtell saw Saturday'
dc.ub'e header at Cincinnati wher
about all the playing for the Giants
was done by Doyle. Purtell, in his
'"Otto Wagner and I just returned

Boy le. former third baseman on the
Springfield team, and had a nice chat
with him. He says he likes playing
with New York fine, but has little con
fidence in the ability of the Giants to
win any pennants until .they get som
of .the old heads off the team. He
says they are too much like worn out
"Larry secured special seats for us
and it is mighty lucky that he did, as
the park was jammed. He played a
fine game himself and if the others
had done so well the Giants would not
have lost either game, lie got one "f

going to take things easy when I get
home; until the basket ball season rolls
around again, anil then I am going ti

The Red Mill." The second mon'h
of what promises to be one of the most
famous engagements in Chicago's the
atrical history is drawing to a close
and only a few more weeks remain
when theatergoers can see Montgom
ery and Stone in Charles Dillingham's
production of "The Red Mill" at th
Grand Opera house. There has not
been an emntv seat in the thenar
since "The Red Mill" began to re
volve on Aug. 18 and the advance sale
of seats and boxes is said to indieat2
continuance of the record breaking
patronage. The engagement has beon
extended once, by the mutual consent
of Charles Dillingham, manager oi
Montgomery and Stone, and Harry 1
Hamlin, manager of the Grand Opera
house, but a further extension canno
be made on account of booxing con
tracts in eastern cities; so those wlu
wish to see the best musical entertain
nient of the age will have to hurry in
One of the conspicuous noveltio:
associated with "The Red Mill" is the
fact that the action of the play takes
place in Holland. During the past
dozen years or more the American
stage has been well provided wim
productions symbolic in scenic su'
roundings with nearly all the countries
of the globe, but it is believed that
The Red Mill" is the first play, i
least of any considerable pretention1
devoted exclusively to the representa
tion of the Dutch and their country-
This no doubt seems a bit stran
when one takes into consideration tin:
early history of the United States; th
first settlers of which, particularly in
the state of New York, were mostly
from Holland. Many of the bes
names of the empire state art: i.
Dutch origin and the name of New
York Citv itscdf was originally Xcv
Amsterdam. The entire play from b
ginning to end is distinctive of Ho":
land, in scenery, costumes, charade
types and even in the music.
Graft is the Theme. Graft in poli
tics forms the central theme of "Th
Man of the Hour," which was given a
the Illinois last night before the larg
est house of this season. Cleverly coi
neeted with the political story is
pretty love affair, making a very pk-u
ing production. The company seen
the Illinois last evening is a well
lected one, but has very evidently no
been out long this season, for the need
of rehearsal is cpiite noticeable. Th
audience last evening, however, seemed
disposed tei overlook the little fault
ind show full appreciation of the really
ood work of the players.
James Bevans as Aiilermau Phe-lau
and Jose ph La Brasse as Richard Hor
an, peditical boss, gave the parts
the: political plot makers well, and
the leading character of Alwyn Ben
nett, William Lamp proveu a good s
lection. Miss Norma Winslow ably
played the part of Dallas Wainwii;
