THE BOCK I8T,ANB jABGUS. FRIDAY, JUNE
Base Ball at the Kock Island Park
The Harper 1Iba Silne Defeat the
Hrk lalaad Hmirllib by atere
f 17 ! The Davenport iam.
The much talked of base ball game be
tweea the Harper and Rock Island bouse
employes and guests for tte benefit of the
Johnstown flood sufferers, was played
yesterday afternoon at the Rock Island
ball park. The attendance was only fair,
bat the sport was animating and amus
ing. The financial part of the affair was
looked after by Conductor Willis and
Bipgageman Burke, of the C , B. & Q ,
Willis standing guard at the front gate
and Burke at the rear. They filled their
points well and even the peanut boy on
their train had to put up his little fifteen
Considerable practicing was indulged
in prior to the gaune, which was a fitting
prelude of what was to follow. John
Looney, of the Rock Islands, and U.S.
Schureman, of the Harper, were the cen
ter of attraction. The former was
in blue cloth with gilt trimmings and had
extreme difficulty in keeping on the
ground. He was here, there and every
where and showed himself to be a
jod sprinter as well as ball player.
Schureman took the opposite extreme.
The Harpers put him on second base to
see that it didn't get away, and the
ground was all plowed up within a
radius of three feet of that base when the
game was over; he didn't move futher
than that for fear Mike Burke would steal
the base for a cushion.
Sullivan and Strain, the pride of the
"Q.road, played with the Harper's.
Sullivan is the best player, but Strain
makes up in coaching what he may lack
otherwise. We have no doubt if any of
the managers of league clubs heard Strain
they would hire him for coacher alone.
His voice sounds like a fog horn out of
tune, and he throws it around to bases in
a reckless manner.
Captain M linger, of the' Kock Islands,
made a vigorous protest against whom be
which the Harpers had, but he consented
to play if they did not act as the battery.
Captain Adams, of the Harpers, won the
toss and it was after 3 o'clock when time
was called by Umpire Willis, who placed
a substitute in his box at the gate.
The nines were composed of the fol

Bruen opened the game for the Rock
Islands by knocking the ball between
Schureman s legs at second, and then
Looney seized the bat with a determined
air. Bruen tried to steal second, but
Sullivan was on the bag and put bim
out. Looney waited with professional
sagacity and got to first on balls. Lloyd
hit a sky scraper to left field, but Brown
took it in neatly. Rogers hit to Adams
and died at first, Looney 's frantic
efforts to reach second availing nothing.
For the Harper's Sullivan grasped the
willow flrsi. Great things were ex
pected of him as a slugger. He hit a
foul, and it took five boys to find the ball
' UiiriRE WILLIS
went into his pocket for a new one. Af
ier iwo strikes, Sullivan was given a
base on balls. Trego got a good ball,
and one strike was called. He then hit
safe, and Sullivan went to second, and
both advanced one peg, while Schuer
man fanned wind three times. A passed
ball sent Sullivan in the first tally of
the game. Lundon failed to stop
Strain's third strike, letting Trego in.
Strain amused himself by trotting around
to third before Hoar pounded for a two
bagger. Bruen stopped Dusinberre's
short hit in good style. ITor scored on
a wild pitch. Looney made a good pick
up, and fielded McHugu out at first.
Pearson opened the play for the Rock
Islands in the second. Sullivan gath
ered the ball up at short, and sent it like
a cannon ball to first in time to bead
bim off. Geiger got a whack in the
back, and started to first as though be
was glad of it. He tried to reach sec
ond, but Sullivan was standing there
with the ball ahead of him. Young
bit for a two bagger, and Munger stepped
up to the home plate with the intention
of bringing Young home. He hit short,
however, and was put out at first.
Adams got around to third, and Brown
swiped it for two bags for the Harpers.
Sullivan hit short and died at first, while
Adams scored. Brown scored on Tre
go's bit for two bases. Schureman
bunted the ball against the reporters'
and scoring bench, before he retired on
three strikes. Strain stood up and let
the ball bit bim, and sprinted around to
second regardless of the ball, and went
to third on Hoar's safe hit. Duscn
burre bit between Lloyd's legs at sec
ond, and Strain tallied, Hoar going to
third. McIIugh went to base on balls,
and Adams came to bat again with
three men on bases. He failed to bit
.safe, however, and the Inning ended with
In the third inning Lundon struck
out, Roger took Lloyd's place at the

thrown out Brown bit safe as did Sul
livan. Brown was. forced out at third,
and Sullivan scored on Trego's hit.
Schureman struck out, after Dusenbeire
bad hit twice for him. Strain also struck
Geiger started the fourth inning for the
Rock Islands, with Sullivan in the box in
place of Adams. He failed to bit it, as
also did Young, Sullivan's curves prov
ing too much for them. Hunger took
his base on balls and in endeavoring to
reach home on London's bit was pat out.
Hoar flew out to Rogers and Dusin
berre bit safe and stole second. McHugh
and Adams struck out.
In the fifth inning Bruen and Looney
hit safe, but Lloyd, Rogers and Pearson
struck out, leaving a blank for the Rock
Brown hit safe for the Harpers and
went to second, and Sullivan struck out.
Trego bit safe and a wild throw let Brown
in. For a wonder Schureman bit the
ball and made first, while Trego scored.
Strain fell on the ball and Schureman
reached third and came home on Hoar's
baby bit. Dusinberre made a good bit

The Harpers again changed pitchers,
Brown occupying the box. Looney
struck out and Lloyd got a ball square in
in the back which entitled him to a base,
but Rogers and Pearson ended the play
by striking out. The Harpers didn't do
much better. Strain, McUugh aud Adams

When the liver is indolent, as it must
necessarily be when it fails to secrete the
bile in sufficient quantities to meet the
requirements of digestion and evacuation,
it should he set at work with Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters. The healthful stimu
lus to activity imparted by this incom
parable alterative, speedily evinces itself
in a departure of the uncomfortable sen
sations in tbe right side; tbe nausea, fur
upon the tongue, indigestion, and sick
headache consequent upon inactivity of
the liver and tbe diversion of the bile
from its proper channel. Irregularity of
the bowels is always and painlessly re
formed by the corrective indicated.which
is infinitely to be preferred, both because
it is safe and more efficacious, to blue
pills, .calomel and drenching purgatives
of every class. It cures and prevents
fever and aeue and rbeumatism.

of clinical medicine at university college
hospital, London, England, says:
"Bri;hi's disease has no symptoms of its
own and may long exist without tbe
knov. ledge of the patient or practitioner
and no pain will be felt in the kidneys or
their vicinity." Ordinary common kid
ney diseases, many times unrecognized as
such, will become chronic and terminate
in Blight's (organic) disease of tbe kids
neys unless taken in hand. Warner's
Safe Cure is the only recognized specific
that has ever been discovered for this
disease. The late Dr. Dio Lewis said,
over his own signature: "If I found my
self t he victim of a serious kidney trou
ble, I would use Warner's Safe Cure."
Tte usual treatment of catarrh is very
unsatisfactory, as thousands of despair
ing patients can testify. On this toint
a trustworthy medical .writer says:
"Pre per local treatment is positively nec
