BY PAUL SRUNER.
It was comeback day at the Hayes j
ball yard. Mister Chapman, the Dan-(
vllle elabblst, who at the previous
matinee carelessly intercepted a swift- j
ly moving agate with the moustache '
section of his dining room, again cast
his chapeau into the diamond. Con-'
trary to all rules of etiquette, the i
Pretzels failed to treat the convales-1
clng patient with klndneus and respect. ;
Instead they took advantage of his
weakened "condish" and mutilated his
offerings with a right good will.
Jesse James Barnes, the cyclone cel
lar haMlue fronl the western plains,
was the other comeback. Lurid hurl
ing shoved Jesse into the clear on the
previous day, but not so of a Thurs
day. The broncho busting Kid was
hurling 'em over with gatling gun
speed, and the Walsh contingent look
ed ill all the way. But two of the visit
ing delegates succeeded in punching
the base hit coupqn book, and between
them they saved up "Phoebe" knocks,
good for one marker. The count a:
4 to 1.
But 32 members of the opposition
faced the Clrclevllle bandit in 'nlue
rapid innings. Stage Manager Walsh
made a switch in the make-up of the
chorus and supporting company. Otto
Vogel, the German comedian and prl e
pepper disseminator, reclined at ease
on the bench, while Right Fielder
Ohlin was called upon to double in
brass, corning in and holding down
the keystone position in a manner
eminently satisfactory to all concern
ed, catcner -yarns ODiigea in ine
soutnwest outskirts ana aisposecj oi
three men handily. So fast was
Barnes ringing the apple over the
platter, that the Danvlllites couldn't
have lamped it with a compound lense.
They resembled a buncn oi Ultra graue
ataietes on tne back lot circuit.
The game also marked the farewell
appearance of Milton Reed, the ster
ling ehortstoppor of the Prtzol aggre
gation. Milt accepted, five chances
without faltering and scored a run, al
though he failed to get a blow in four
trials. On his final trip to the gutta
percha, the bugs awakened to the fact
that they would never egitin sen the
southern lad swung the bludgeon on
those grounds, and subdued cheers
and ladylike bandclapplngs made the
welkin almost ring. There was an ab
sence of floral horseshoes, silver lov
ing cups, new traveling bags, near-gold
lats and the like. Also there Vere no
good-bye speeches or sob scenes. We
had expected, to Bee Dan O'Leary weep
on the boy's grjmy shirt front as he
rung his hand and wished him God
speed, but there was about as much
sentimentality as may be found at a
meeting cf the directors' board of the
JK1SR f.lJf HIT.
For two innings the Sox batters
si::ed up that pillow-cushion effect on
Chappie's upper lip. were moved to
compassion and refrained from scor
ing, but in the third chapter there
were a few nAld pyrotechnics. The
western outlaw, Barnes, started it af
ter one man had died, by ramming a
double into the left field foul line,
tame Carrigan drove liim in witn a
two-cushion clout to right.
The next rlpp'.e on the . general :
p'.aclwity was disccvered in the fifth
inning. Otto Koepping. the under
sized athlete from the Elgin butter
district, lined a single Into left. He
was sacrificed to the keystone and
sped homeward on Barnes' base knock . ent leather shoes and his own reputa
to the middle garden. Jesse legged jtion as a polo player. Bill still boses
It to second on the throw to the plate, j the boys around In a fatherly way.
Chappie then attempted some low cun-j settles all minor scraps, tells the
nlng, and essayed to catch the bandit pitchers when he misses a strike, and
asleep at the sw itch. The Danville j hobnobs w ith the bunch after, the
pitcher pivoted on his left heel, veered .hours without giving them the ide
to the south and threw the apple into
center field, allowing Barnes ,to pro
ceed tranquilly to third. Becker .hit a
grounder to second base, and the
westerner romped home on the play.
After two were gone in the eighth, !
Reed, who had survived on a fielder's
choice, pilfered the second cushion,
and counted on Bromwich's clean blow
to center. Total four runs.
VISITORS GET OXE.
As is their usual custom, the Dan
ville gang helped themselves to one
run, their aversion to shutouts being
one of their eccec'iclUes.. The caark-
cr came ia the seventh. Graham open
ed up with- a two-sacker to left, took
third on Wallace's demise, and regis
tered on Richard Staley's ' clout to
left. The score:

.OTJli OF THK GAME.
The game was one of the fastest of
the season, being negotiated in one
hour and 17 minutes. "I'mps" Johnson
continually exhorted the athletes to
act,'on with the battle cry: "Hurry up,
boys, make It fast the old life, the
old pepper, boys." The bugs began
to mimic the war cry along about tUa
third inning, and Johnson was any
thing but, pleased. As he passed the
press coop, mutterings were heard
something after the following:
of llckety split bagety bang
Barnes was given some sterling sup
port throughout. The gardeners were
especially busy, collecting 12 chances

I.AIU.R CROWDS IIFKE.
It took 15 minutes overtime to de
cide whether or not to pull off the
fray. The players were loath to risk
limbs on the soggy diamond. The
eager fans wanted to see the teams in
action, though the actual attendance
was under the 200 mark. Unsettled
! weather made It possible that one of
the later fames of the series would
be lost, and it was finally decided tq
get the first one out of the way.

Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. 15 The

the first game in the sixth when Lo

derus for the first time in his life
placed a single in left field and scored
Lobert. Both Ames and Alexander
pitched excellent ball, but the latter
kept his hits scattered.
The Reds never had a chance In the
second game, the Fhlllies hitting Mor
decai Brown all over the lot. Cravath

runs and a single in three time up
