Danville at Bloomington.
Danville, 111., Aug. 29. (Special
The work of Vogel at second and In
galls at third for Danville featured
the fastest game ever played here,
but an hour and a quarter being re
quired to complete the contest. The
Speakers were robbed of three hits
by Vogel's work, while Ingalls pulled
over four which would have gone for
safeties and probably have had en
abled the visitors to win.
Danville took the game because of
the slowness of Queisser in fielding
his position in the third inning, cou
pled with a bad peg by Stark. In
galls singled to right, Wolfe hit to
Snyder, who attempted to get In
galls at -second, and both were safe.
Duffy hit down to Quiesser but he
failed to move until too late. Kay
lor hit to Snyder and Ingalls was
forced at home. Stark tried to beat
Wolfe to third with the throw, but
the peg was wild and Wolfe scored.
Magee hit to Snyder and Kaylor was
caught at second. Paddy was then
run down between the bases.
Only One on Second.
Four of the Islanders died at first,
only one getting to second. The

It Is a Wise Child. ,
An offici.nl of the immigration bureau
at Ellis island told a story of a wise
little immigrant child.
"A little girl came over in the steer
age iu sean-b of ber father, whose
name she gave us. We sent for the
man. and he came and looked at her.
" I can't tell whether this is Mary
or not," said he. 'I haven't seen Mary
since she was a baby about three
months old. How can I tell. then,
whether this is Mary or not?"
"It was a question we couldn't an
swer, so we looked from him to the
child and from the child back to hlua,
"Finally, when we were all at our
wits end. he looked earnestly at the
child and said plaintively, 'Am I your
"And the wise little child answered
quickly. 'Yes. you are."
"And so we made her over to him."

Census Figures Indicate Fate of
Three-Eye, But There Is
FALLS SHORT OF 400,000
About Only Difference Would Be
Loss of $200 on Each Player
Dratted by Higher Circiuts.
That the Three-Eye league will
have trouble in keeping its place as
a Class B circuit in the reorganiza
tion of minor leagues when the Na
tional Association of Minor Leagues
meets in October has been anticipat
ed for some time, but up to the pres
ent there had been a lingering hope
that the census figures might show
that the eight cities that comprise
the present organization might have
a total population of 400,000 or
more, the minimum required under
present rules for leagues of the clas
sification now enjoyed. Now, how
ever, according to official information
from Washington, advance estimates
submitted to Secretary Farrell by
Census Director Durand, indicate that
the Three-Eye league will fall into
Class C, which requires a population
of between 200,000 and 400,000.
The Three-Eye is one of several cir
cuits that appear to have been over
rated, the Western league, which is
relegated from Class A to Class B,
being the most notable example.
Will Not Govern Prenent Graft.
Published statements that the new
classification is to govern the price of
players drafted in the next two
weeks, however, are erroneous. The
figures have come too late for this,
and anyway, it will require action
by the National association before
the change becomes effective.
As baseball rules have ben ob
served in the past the only difference
to the Three-Eye that the drop in
classification will mean will be a loss
of $200 in the price of each player
drafted. Class B players drafted
bring $600, those of Class C $400
and, those of Class D", which rating
applies to circuits of less than 200,
000 population, is $300. Inasmuch
as the more valuable players are us
ually sold before the drafting season
opens and there is no rule to govern
prices in such deals, the change, if it
is made, will not mean very much. It
is true that a Class C league is not
supposed to pay as high salaries as
one in Class B, but in practice this
rule has not been strictly observed,
and some Class C organizations are
actually paying more than the Three
Eye. It is likely, also, that in the
reorganization planned for this fall
the question of salaries, number of
men to be carried, and price of
drafted players will come in for an
overhauling, so that in the end It is
not likely that the class of baseball
furnished Three-Eye patrons will
be allowed to deteriorate. At the
same time an effort will be made to
enforce economy in matters pertain
ing to the minor leagues.
Get In on Ground Floor.
In the past the Three-Eye has en-
Manager Keenan of Bloomingtonhas

Danville has sold Pitcher Loomis
who, with a tail end team, has won
the majority of his games, to Indian
apolis. Catcher Searles of the Boosters is
also suffering with a damaged hand
and will likely, be out for the remain
der of the season.
Outfielder Jimmy Cuthbert, released
by Peoria, has been picked up by Wa
terloo and will play first in place of
Reiter, who has been injured.
Decatur has won a pennant. It
was only in the Knights of Columbus
league, but it ought to help smooth
the way back into the Three-Eye.
Dubuque's attendance is now 29,
000, and with 14 'more games, in
cluding two Sunday contests and a
"Faber" day tomorrow, it is figured
that the total for the season will
mount to something like 37,000.
The waiver rule that required major
league clubs to keep players purchas
ed till Dec. 1 following before asking
for waivers has been suspended by the
national commission to assist the big
leaguers in keeping within the limit
on the number of players.

it was given its ratings before the
present rules were adopted and on
this ground it may put up a fight to
make the present status permanent.
If the cities were permitted to in
clude suburbs the Three-Eye as now
constituted, would not fall far Below
4 00.000, and would without doubt
easily pass that figure before the
next federal census is taken. Under
the rule which confines population
figures to those actually within the
city limits a hardship is worked upon
cities situated as Rock Island is, for
Moline and all suburbs within reach
by trolley line are really supporters
of the game here and should be
counted as such, while Davenport

Merle S. Harmon, new athletic di
rector at the Rock Island high school
and teacher of history, arrived in thu
city this morning prepared to take
up his work both in the school and
on the athletic field. He expects to
join the candidates for the football
squad, who are now in training camp
below Andalusia. The players are
due to remain there the rest of this
week, which will give the new coach
several days in which to get acquaint

do not quite suit Coach Harmon,
although he is not yet ready to pass
judgment upon them. The first two
or even three contests will in his
mind be merely tests of the new
game and until they are played he
does not want to condemn the work
of the rules committee.
Dead as a Doornail.
Trie phrase "dead as a doornail"
originated in this way. In early days,
when door knockers were common, the
plate upon which the knocker struck
was sometimes called a nail. In the
course of years it was struck so often
that all life was supposed to be
knocked out of It: therefore when it
became necessary to refer to anything
hopelessly lifeless it was merely an
emphatic expression to say that it was

for him. Collins did no better than
he would likely have done, but the
incident shows that the ex-Three-Eye
leaguer is not considered a good man
in a tight place.
Kinsella at Decatur yesterday said
Springfield's attendance was raised
by Sunday's double header to 35,000,
and added that he had no Intention
of switching his team to Decatur
another season. He talked as though
he expected to remain in baseball and
in Springfield, too, thereby confirm
ing the impression that has prevailed
at this end of the line all along.

THE LIQUOR DRINKER
AND HIS BUSINESS
Absolute Importance of His Brain
Being Cleared Up.
It is frequently very important
that a person under the influence of
alcoholic stimulants should become
sober as sorn as possible. Business
affairs may be neglected or social
engagements forgotten during the
period of drunkenness, and it often
devolves upon friends of the- habitual
drunkard to assist him to possession
of an unclouded brain and clear in
tellect and see to it that his appear
ance is at least respectable. Experi
ence has taught that no institute ex
tant other than the Neal Institute in
DAVENPORT AT 821 FARNAM
STREET has ever been successful in
treating drunkenness in less than
four weeks' time. It makes no dif
ference how long a man has been
drinking, how much or how little he
drinks, or what he drinks, the Neal
treatment has never failed to cure
in three days' time and without the
use bf dangerous hypodermic injec
tions or injurious drugs. Just bear
in mind that there is no such thing
as a "secret cure" for drunkenness,
and you are taking great risk In ad
ministering these remedies.
