Peoria, May 14. (Special.) Tighe'd
coming champs stubbed their toes yes
terday Tor tho first time this season,
succumbing to Peoria after a terrific
struggle, and then only when 14 hits
had been made off Neal and Webster.
Four errors made on hard c hances due
to the hard slamming of the home team
helped things along some, but at that
it took a timely swat with men on
bases to break a tie score in tho
eighth and to also fracture Rock Is
land's winning streak.
Webster succetded Neal in the
seventh which puts the game in the
lost column for him-, though the bat
ting bee had started under Neal's ad
ministration. The Distillers started briskly in the
second. Smith led oft with a single
ami Hodges -followed with a smash
to Kelley. Ed wards laid down a neit
sacrifice and Kelley threw the ball
wild to the right field bleachers, Suiiit,
and Hodges scoring and Edwards pull
ing up at third. Higgins struck out.

Rowan and Dean both rolled to Vogol
and were e:isy outs.

The Islanders came back in the

inning of the game for' four runs,

with a single scoring Murphy, but was

Webster started nicely in the sev

a sensational catch by Murphy. This

Lady Fans Necessary to Success
of the Game in Rock Island
Have you ever thought of the great
figure now cut by the female fans?
Years ago baseball was a mere noth
ing in the minds of the women, but
today. every city in the country that
supports a baseball club has many fe
male followers of the game. Like oth
er cities, Rock Island has its propor
tionate number, and so far as the point
of enthusiasm is - concerned no city
has anything on the fair sex of this
There is not a particle of doubt in
the minds of the baseball public that,
if conditions were equal, the women
