Ottumwa wvened It up for their de

Thursday by taking yesterday's game
by a score of 4 to 2, practically re

era had one and all left their batting
clothes hanging on the wire line at
the club house, for, as far as hitting
was concerned, there was very little
doing, and the game was a tame affair.
The locals made only three hits In
all and all of them came in the last
inning, when It began to appear cer
tain that Miller was going to have a
no hit game to hang at his belt. Even
with this, however, the Ottumwans
had to be handed the game, as they
did little to earn it. All four of the
scores which they made came In one
Inning, the sixth, when Harle Wag

on the mound, went up In the air.

when Murphy waited for four wide

scored both Brand and Wise. Murphy

The Chicago Cubs Zeepos arrived in
Peoria 24 hours ahead of the schedule,
and played the first game yesterday
instead of today, as had been intended.
They will play again today and tomor
row at Peoria, going to Danville Mon
day and to Bloomtngton Tuesday. The
Cubs are headed by Catcher Tom
home. This one lone inning was the
the only time that the visitors had the
gbost of a chance, but they made the
most of it and won the game by tak
ing advantage of Wagner's wildness.
No Hits t'ntll Ninth.
The Islanders played a Tather list
less game, going Inning after Inning
without getting even the semblance
of a hit. They scored a run in the
first inning on a base on balls and an
error. Hunter waited and went to
second on Ochs out at first Davey
rolled one down to Brand at second
and the Ottumwa lnfielder fumbled It
long enough to let Jim reach the In

come home from second. From then

a hit to Tight which got by Ahring

followed with a nice safe drive, ana

"30" official pathfinder for the Glidden
tour of 1910 has been shipped to Cin
cinnati, the "official starting point of
The pathflnding trip will start Mon
day, April 11. This was the decision
of Chairman S. M. Butler of the con
test board of the American Automobile
association when 'he stopped In Chi

ference on Glidden tour matters be
fore he left for the coast.

spent in Memphis and St. Joseph.
This year's Glidden will contain the
longest single day's run in the history
o fthe event; from Texarkana to Dal

est day in the 1909 tour was from Sa
liua, Kan., to Kansas City, a distance
of 212 miles.
Record In Length.
This year's tour will also be longer
than that of 1900 which established a
record for Glidden tours. Last year
the Gliddenites covered approximately
2,300 miles between Chicago and Kan
sas City by way of Minneapolis and
Denver. This year's route will be
something ovtr 2,500 miles.
Chairman Butler believes that this
year's Glidden event will set a record
for entries. Inquiries to date indicate
great interest in the tour among man
ufacturers of automobiles in all parts
in the country.
"I am confident that 1910 will see
the largest of all Glidden tours," said
Official Scout D. II. Lewis will reach

MANY GOOD ONES
Major Leagues Have Secured
Number of Stars by Draft
DESPITE FACT OF DENIAL
Several Three-Eye Leaguers Who
Have Made iood Were Obtained
in This Manner.
Every little while the argument
arises whether major league clubs
ever have procured many good play
ers by draft. Looking back over
the record of the national commis
sion it would seem that lots of ster
ling performers have entered the
major leagues by the draft route.
For instance. President Frank Na
vin of the Tigers, didn't buy Hugh
Jennings from the Orioles, but draft
ed him. Two of Charley Comiskey's
best pitchers Ed Walsh and Frank
Smith were drafted players. Hal
Chase of the Highlanders also was
drafted. President Frank Farrell
did not have to pay fancy prices for
Jimmy Austin, Earl Gardner or Jack
Qulnn, all of whom were procured
by the draft figure.
Of the Giants. Otis Crandall,
George Schlel, "Bugs" Raymond and
Charley Herzog were drafted. The
Tigers once drafted Owen Bush to
oblige the Indianapolis club, and lat
er had to pay the noosiers $5,500
for the little fellow's release. Two
all-star teams, one to represent the
American league and the other the
National, could be picked from the
men who have been drafted by the
major organizations since, the nation
al agreement has been In force.
