first time in history an aeroplane

rose in the air hero yesicrday,
circled over the valley, and sail.-d back
obediently to its starting point to rise
again. Thus, under the guiding haul
of one of its inventors, Wilbur Wright,
it flew five ti.nes in the deuietiioii of
the government's tiact oi' lam: io avia

spectators, and scarcly enough brecz-:

At 5:15 the inventor and the soldier
went flying off in the air. I'p th".y
rose to the highest altitude attained
in the afternoon, probably to a height
of 150 feet. Instead of iiiniiim: th"lr
course to circles over the government
reservation they went a ntiie and 'a

All afternoon Lieutenant Humphreys
had been starting the propcllors. At

lake his place for his first ride in nn

were off. Five more and they had
finished their circle of the field and
were bringing the machine to a halt

Iittburi; More C'onfltlrnt.
Pittsburg, Oct. 9. A large crowd
turned out for the second game of
the world's championship series be
tween Detroit and Pittsburg today.
Cheered on by the victory of Pitts
burg yesterday the local enthusiasts
were out in force and the majority
appeared to be confident that tho
National league champions would
win the series in four straight games
but the Detroit followers appeared
to have a different view.
Crowd rinrril at 3O.0O0.
The crowd started pouring into the
immense amphitheater long before
the game was scheduled to start and
the attendance was estimated at more
than 30,000. Iioth teams are sched
uled to leave for Detroit tonight and
to spend Sunday there.
No Sunday tinman.
There will be no Sunday game in
Detroit despite the fact that the
American league champions have
been playing regularly on Sundays.
Those games were being played with
out cognizance of the city oficials,
j because there is a law forbidding
Sunday baseball in Detroit. It was
feared, however, that the large
j crowds attendant upon the world's
j championship game would cause com
! plaint and might result in stopping
all Sunday games. Therefore the De-
troit management decided not to take
Clarke In ('onfldrat.
Manager Clarke were a confideni
smile asTie lead his team upon the
field. Each member of the team wat
roundly applauded but the lion't
share of the , cheers settled upon
Leach, Clarke, Wagner and Gibson
heroe3 of the first battle.
Manager Jennings of Detroit refus
ed to take a pessimistic view of the
situation and he and his men came on
the field with a jaunty air. They
were determined to win today as they
knew another defeat would practic
ally put them out of the running foi
the greatest honors in organized
work Well In Iralr.
The Detroit infield worked smooth
ly in practice and shewed no signs of
another blowup such as marked the
fifth inning of yesterday's game. Del-
chanty and Bush were dejected over
their errors yesterday and determin
ed that no more from them should
mar the playing of their team.
