Waterloo was the only visiting team
that got onto the Job yesterday. Quin

Davenport was unable to reach Dan

niimiA The fact that Oninrv riuld
not reach Rock Island refutes the ar-
gument that that city is better locat
ed with reference to facility and econ
omy in travel than the two northern
towns of the circuit.

have a new man or two before the

severe on the hurling department.
The Quincy Herald says: "Changes in
the. Gem team In order to get a win
ning club will probably be made in the
near future. A deal whereby Owens
will be deposed by Frank Donahue is
said to be under way, and a third base
man Is to be secured to take Dona
hue's place. Another Central league
pitcher is said to be a possibility, and
a good hitting catcher wouldn't be a
bad proposition. Quincy is off for an
11-game trip, and Just what success
the Gems will have Is, of course, very
problematical, but it is a pretty safe
guess that the Gems will return to this
city pretty well anchored to the" bottom."

Aviator Astley Had Terrific
Bouts With Death Near
M A STRANGE MACHINE
At One Time at Height of 30O Feet
He Flew Witfe But One Hand
one ot the most hair raising p
f ormances ever put up on an aeroplane
was given at the Brook lands aero
drome, near London, by the British
aviator, IL de D. Astley, who is a
cousin of the Marquis of Hastings.
Astley was flying a fifty horsepower
Bleriot racing monoplane for the first
His first lap of the aerodrome was
a series of up and down dives, which
looked as if he were sitting a backing
broncho, only each buck took him forty
feet up and down again. Then be got
the weight of the machine into his
hands and steadied her down for a
second lap. Feeling he had got full
control, he took her up to a height of
300 feet, where he was flying quite
nicely when a gust of wind caught
him and turned him up on to his left
wing tip. and he began to drop side
ways. Knowing his only chance of righting
himself was to drive head first out of
the gust, he pulled the tail of the ma
chine up in the air. switched off his
engine and dived for it. Just as he
got the monoplane diving qnte
straight be accidentally touched the
switch, and the engine started again
full blast The sudden pull of the big
engine, added to the weight of the
machine. Jerked the whole apparatus
from under Astley. who was left for
a fraction of a second sitting in the
lie grabbed the , first thins that
came along, and when ha came to
himself sufficiently to think he found
himself sitting astride the frame of
the machine, hanging on to ice top
raiU of the frame with both hands
and looking straight down into the
seat he had quitted. Meantime the
machine, absolutely without control,
was heading full speed for the ground,
now only about 150 feet below him.
Fortunately for him his weight, be
ing so far back, made itself felt, and
nt about 100 feet from the earth the
tail dropped and the machine started
climbing skyward again.
GIVEN" IP KOIt OEAn.
The other aviators on the ground had
given him up for dead as he made his
dive, mid now they gave him up again,
for the machine climbed perfectly ver
tically, and no one had ever seen a
machine goiug aloft hanging on to its ,
propeller and uothing else. They sim- j
ply stood and waited for the marhine
to start dropping backward. There was
nothing else to do.
Then Astley pulled himself together
and clawed himself ur the frame so
that by holding on with his right hand
he could catch hold of the control
wheef with his left, but he could not
get into his seat so as to get his feet
on the rudder levers. By this time the
aeroplane had climbed to a height of
about 400 feet and was still rising.
As soon as he had got partial control
Astley said to himself "This is where
I start for home again" and jammed
his control wheel hard forward. The
tail came up. and the machine got on a
level keel and steadied herself. Then
he raised the tail a bit more, and. look
ing over the front of the machine,
meanwhile lying flat on his stomach
on top of the frame, he saw below him

Booster I toy.
The Rock . Island Baseball asso
ciation at its adjourned meeting in
the parlors of the New Harper last
evening decided to continue In the
Three-Eye , league throughout the
season. It was the work that had
been done to assist the associatlcr.
in its financial difficulties, following
the business men's petition received
at the meeting a week prior, asking
that final action be deferred that
prompted the association In its de
termination to continue baseball in
Rock Island. This with the spirit
of enthusiasm nnd loyalty to th
home club everywhere manifest en
couraged the owners of the fran
chise to hang on to it, sink or swim.
The report of the canvass for
funds made by A. D. Sperry and E.
T. Dolly showed that sufficient net
subscriptions had been made to In
sure the acceptance of the Tri-Clty
Railway and People's Power com
pany donations, provided $400 more
can be realized at the booster izy
event In the near future.
A. D. Sperry and E. T. Dolly
submitted the booster day propo
sition which the club accepted. The
club directors, however, will have
nothing to do with the planning of ti:e
affair other than the fixing of the dat.
Interested fans are to take complete
charge of the selling of the tickets
which are to be disposed of at the 'ate
of 50 cents piece. It bing believed
that this price would prove a popular
one. In all probability a committer
will be vested with authority to n;i
point ticket sellers throughout th'j
city so that a thorough canvass cm:
be made. The promoters of the scheme
expect to realize between $500 and $!.
000 from the sale of the tickets. It H
probable that the Booster day game
will be played sometime near the etui
of this month. That will allow plenty
of time for the sale of tickets.
