ELGIN AND KANKAKEE OUT
Call Off Scheduled Games and May
Quit Northern Association.
Elgin. 111.. July 15. Affairs of the
Northern association wore again thrown
into a chaotic condition yesterday when
she loci and Kankakee teams called
off their scheduled games owing to lack
of interest. Both of the teams have
practically disbanded, as all the Kan
kakee members were given their re
lease, while the local players have for
the lv.ost part been turned over to clubs
in other leagues. With the withdrawal
of Elgin and Kankakee but four teams
are left in the organization, and wheth
er or not the season will be finished is
still in doubt.
KNOCKED OUTTO "PEN"
Navy Champion Gets a Year for
Fighting Negro in Virginia.
Hampton. Va., July 15. William Du

ilistic championship of the United
States navy, was convicted here yester
day by a jury in the circuit court of
prize lighting. He was sentenced to
one year in the penitentiary. Durand
was knocked out several weeks ago at
Buck Roe Beah by a negro named Scar
borough, in the first round of what was
to have been a 10-round mill. Durand
formerly lived in Pennsylvania.
Jack Homer Killed by Fall.
New Orleans, July 15. "Jack" Hor

died yesterday at a local hotel as a re

baths shortly before 4 a. m. Wednes
day, Horner slipped on a marble step
and fell to the floor, fracturing his
skull. He never regained conscious

Stark, to jolly things along.
The Northern association has van
ished down to a small point. Elgin
and Kankakee are now out, calling off
their games because of lack of inter
est, and Decatur and Jacksonville are
ready to quit. It is suggested that
Muscatine and Sterling might form a
league of their own and fight it out

Greatest Family of Kiders in World
Are Willi I5ig Circus.
The greatest, family of equestrians in
the world, the Konyots. are this season
one of the riding features with the
Barnum & Bailey greatest shows on
earth, which visits Moline on Thurs
day. July 21. In addition to being
riders, the Konyots are acrobats of
great ability. They combine these
two specialties into the biggest circus
novelty of the day. They do posturing
and Risley feats, and somersault leaps
from shoulder to shoulder while stand
ing on the backs of speeding horses.
Among the thousands of European
features this circus has introduced to
America, from time to time, none is
like this act. It is a distinct departure
from all forms of circus entertain
ment. Another novelty is found in the per
foimance of the La Faille brothers,
tie strongest men in the world. One
of them supports on his back an auto
mobile with six passengers. The Sie-gii-t-Silbon
family of aerialists are an
other big attraction. One of the com
pany leaps across the width of the
arena from a lofty perch, turns a dou
ble somersault in mid-air and catches
the wrists of a comrade, who hangs
head down from a flying swing. He
does it with his eyes blindfolded.
' The Florenze family of acrobats are
another importation worthy of early
mention. Their work is unique. Noth
ing like it has been seen in America
until this season. The Ahreu family
ot Mexican gymnasts gives another
novel exhibition. Close behind It for
novel conception comes the Fassios,
the Dollars, the Dieke sisters, the Les
DeKC family, the Barcetti brothers and
the Apollo trio.

Collins and Baker of Atldetics, Cobb
and Crawford of Detroit
Ever notice that nearly every strong
major league team baa u powerful but
ting pair that Is. two great cleanup
hitters who follow each other up Id
the lineup? Very often it is these
pairs that make the success of a team.
For instance, the Collins-Baker com
bination of the Philadelphia Ameri
cans is one of the most dreaded In
the fast set. Pitchers fear the innings
that each of these two batters have a
t-haiice at bat. Collins uud Baker drive
home us many runs as any other pair
in the country. For that matter, Da
vis and Murphy, who follow the two
Mack stars, form a pretty tough duo
In Cobb and Crawford Detroit has a
mighty pair, and a pitcher Is glad
when he has rid himself of them.
