the game should have been played !

"Come to Rock Island to play " The j
Illlnl management responded "That
Is out of the question." "Well, in j
that case, we will just take that $-5 i

said Manager Smith. A hurried con-!

of the Illlnl at the other end of the

by tbe Moliners that It would be im
possible to get the fieTd under arv
circumstances and that the game

IVeginning tomorrow, Adams and Guhl will show their production of "In Sunny Spain," at the Empire. The tw-o comedians and their company,
who have been appearing in "The Tw-o Admirals" the first half of the week, are said to be the funniest of all in their other vehicle, which takes them
to the land of the toreador and the bullfight. The piece is in two scenes and is said to be handsomely mounted. It is said it takes nearly a car load of
scenery to stage "In Sunny Spain" and the company will introduce its best dancers and singers in specialties and novelties.

the strongest men in the line. Just,
who will fill his place is not as yet
known, but it rests between Chalk and
Criswell, who have been showing up
well at practice. Coach Corneal has
made a number of changes in the
lineup. Sexton, the fast end of last
year's team, was playing the right
half back position last evening, and
Kipp was back at his old position at
quarter. The change at. present seems
to be beneficial. Sexton is a fast
man, and with Whisler at one half
back position and Sexton at the other,
the back field of the team will prob
ably be its strongest point. Just who
