Tomorrow starts a long series of

Bloomington comes first with a run
of three games, and then Peoria shows
up for three more. Decatur follows for
three, and then Springfield for a pair.
Memorial day Clinton will play two
games here, one in the morning and
one in the afternoon.

in a 10-lnning Contest.
The game yesterday afternoon at
Island City park between the Cross
Country team and the Independents,
won for the former by a score of 6 to
2, proved to be a very, pretty exhibi
tion of the national game.. The score
stood even, 2 to 2 in the sixth Inning,
and the Cross Country boys were un
able to find FIcken at all. In the
seventh and eighth, 'however, they
landed hard and put four more tallies
on their score. Ficken struck out 15
of the Cross Country batters. Humes
pitched a steady game for the Cross
Country team, and played with excel
lent support. A feature of the game
was the catch made by Lyons of the
Cross Countrys, of a liner off Lar
son's bat. '
