THEY CHOOSE UP FOR SHOOT
Winners With But Five Points in Lead
Feast at Expense .of Losers at
Rock Island shooters to the number
of IS who went to Davenport for it
supper shoot against the members of
the Cumberland Gun club yesterday
afternoon found themselves up against
18 of the- crack marksmen on th
other side of the river. So great was
the disparity in numbers that it was
decided to choose up teams among
those present and hold the contest
under tae original conditions.
Kunkel and Marten of Davenpo't
were appointed captains and each
picked a team of about 'J5 men. Th
weather was so murky that good work
was impossible and there were few
creditable scores, Donahue being high
man with 21. Drummond of Captain
Kunkel's men, won by. the narrow mar
gin of five birds and Captain Mar
tens and his followers accordingly
paid for a supper at Turner hall.
It was a 25-bird match and the
scores were as follows:

BENEFIT GAME WAS
ALMOST A JOKE
Only . Small Crowd Attends, and But
Little Regard Is Given to the
Rules of Basketball.
The basketball game played at. the
Y. M. C. v, A. last evening by the
Y.. M.' C. A. team and the Kappa
Deltas of Davenport, for the benefit
of the Y. M. C. A. health farm at Den
ver did not draw a large crowd, and
the amount of money realized was very
small. The game Itself was somewhat
in tho nature of a joke, as the local
association team had a' walk-away.
The score at the end of the first ses
sion was 27 to 4, and at the end of the
,second half the total was 56 to-19.
The referee who accompanied the team
'roni Davenport either did not know
he rules or. else he was taking a night
jr, as he rarely bothered either team
iy calling fouls. The result was that
lalf the players were on the lloor most
jt the time, and the ball was often ad
anced from three to four steps by
uembcrs of both teams without any
tttontion being paid to it. As a farce
he game was a great success, and
tome of the spectators laughed until
;heir sides ached. The association
earn lined up with the following play
;rs: Souders, A. Voss, Driggs, W.
vess and Robb.

At the Family. The bill at the Fam
ily theater the first half of this week
is featured by John M. Irwin and com
pany, presenting a serial comedy play
let entitled "The Party From the
North." This one act is a whole show
in itself on a small scale. There are
three people in the act, one woman and
two gentlemen, and all handle their re
spective paris in a capable manner.
Another big act is that of Dave Lubin
and company, presenting a little south
ern playlet entitled "The Humming
Coon," filled with singing and danc
ing, the scene of the play being laid
oh a southern plantation. Will and
Nettie Fields are presenting a unique
act in singing and dancing, and both
are exceptionally clever in the foot
shaking business, especially Miss Net
tie, who is recognized as a leader
among lady clog dancers. Ned Dandy,
the Hebrew comedian, would make a
capable superintendent for a comedy
factory. Ned makes them laugh where
others fail. Mrs. Casey is singing
'Are You Sincere?" for the illustrated
song this half, and the slides used are
Gowns a Pleasing Feature. While
merely an incidental feature to the
play, the gowns worn by Miss Rose
Evans and the other young women
who will appear in the fam6us fare,
"Mrs. Temple's Telegram," at tho
Illinois Sunday next, matinee and
night, constitute a most pleasing one.
No expense has been spared in any
direction in the productioii of the play
by Messrs. Charles H. Small .and
i nomas nan, tne managers, conse
quently the matter of costuming, a
small item in many productions, in
volves an expense of considerable
proportions. In the last act Miss
Evans appears in a directoire gown
which has created the most favorably
comment wherever she has appeared,
nearly all of the ladies in the audien
ces being positive that the garment is
the product of one of the well known
foreign modistes. Such is not tho
case, however, as Miss Evans after a
great deal of experience wjth th?
dressmakers of the United States and
Europe, has concluded that the Nev
York city modistes can produce gowns
far superior in every respect to thode
created by their foreign competitors,
and for this reason the directoire
gown worn by Miss Evans was made
by a well known New York, firm.

New Pool Tourney is Opened '

The fiKKt blot was put on the record
of MacMam.s in the Bijou billiard
tournament last evening when he was
treated to a taste of defeat at the
hands of Hopkins, who played S3
points ' to the loser's CO. Hopkins
played a remarkably clever gamo,
making many bard shots and at th-3
same time leaving the balls safe at
the completion of almost every one
of his innings The final count' was
S5 to 55. The loser is still at the hea l
of the percentage column and had
only to win the game last evening 10
clinch his hold on that place. This
can still be done if he wins from
Smith when the two meet later on in
the week. The fight for second place
is now attracting considerable atten
tion, as it is growing to be a very
warm one. there being three or four
players whose chances of . landing
there are good. Cattcn (100) ahd Kddy
(90) are the principal contenders and
when they meet one of them will be
put out of the running for second
place. Wanner (CO) and Schweckc
(70) are out for second place also and
Wanner by winning the rest of his
games could be sure of a tie for the
place at least. Interest grows with
the playing of every game.

An exhibition in the art of pool and
billiard playing is to lake place at the
Bijou cigar store this evening. Profes
sor Blodgett of Chicago having been
secured some time ago. Blodgett
claims to be the father of them all
when it comes to making the billiard
balls do fancy stunts, and some of his
tricks seem to defy the laws of gravi
ty and several other well established
laws. Along with the exhibition and
lecture which he gives, he makes the
offer to play anyone at billiards, at
which game he is to make 100 points
each inning or else not count what he
does make, and at pool he will play V,
or no count. It is very probable that
some of the local billiard players will
take him up just to see what he can
do at straight billiards, and he may
also have an opponent for a pool game.
