Davenport won the second game wiih
the Aurort club yesterday by a score of
7 to 1, The batteries were Hariand and
Sage for Davenport and Baker and Her
man for Aurora. The playins: of Sage,
the Rock Island star, was the feature of
the gaue. Sage not only retains all bis
old time brilliancy as a catcher, but he
has developed into quite a batter. His
work yesterday won tbeday for Daven
port. He not only supported Hariand
who waa wild, admirably, but he made a
most timely hit. In the fifth inning?,
with Davenport at'the bat. there were
two men out, and tbe bases were full.
Sage came to the bat and just as an ad
mirer ia the audience admonished the
Rock Island boy to do his duty, he hie a
corker for two bases bringing ia two
runs. This inspired the Eucceedinz bar
ters to such an extent that not only
Sage was brought home, but one mora
tally with him, amid shoals of "Hurrah
for Rock Is' and." Saae is the life of the
Davenport team. His coaching ha9 made
the nine what it is and he should be made
captain, so that he may have proper
credit for bis accomplishments.

Actlona Which Demonstrate a Peculiar
Power of Mind Over Body.
I had intended to head this article "In
stinct," but it struck me that two of
the stories at least which I have to tell can
hardly be called instinct, and as 1 don't
know what else to name them I call them
simply "Three Instances."
They are on the same principle as that
old Btory of the singer who had lived on a
canal boat, before she became famous, and
one night as she stood before the audience
somebody shouted out "Low bridge!" and
the woman ducked her bead.
The first instance is about two young
fellows, who, barefooted in the wilds of
America, were turning hay in a meadow,
The two were talking together as they
turned the hay. Suddenly one of the boys
heard a sound like the rattling of very dry
peas fn a pod. He never looked down to
where the noise came from, but with a
suddenness that was puzzling to his com
panion be gave one yell and jumped at
least half a rod.
His comrade, looking in amazement from
the boy to the place he jumped from, saw
co lied near a spot where a bare foot had
been a large rattlesnake. Two or three
blows from the pole with which he was
turning the hay killed the rattler. Kow,
the young man who jumped had never seen
a rattlesnake before, never had heard a rat
tlesnake rattle, was not thinking of snakes
at all, did not even see the snake before he
jumped, yet if he lived to be one hundred
years old be will never again take such a
leap as that one was.
The second instance is about a snake that
wasn't there. I was up tbe other day see
ing a man who had spent most of his life
in India. I noticed that one of the panes
of his window was broken.
"How did that happen?" I asked.
"You see," was the answer, "it waa this
way: Yesterday 1 went out for a long
tramp, and I wore a hole in the toe of my
stocking, wtiicn 1 aidn t notice at the time
and didn't notice this morning when I put
it on. I was absent mindedly putting on
my shoe when suddenly my toe touched
something cold, and before I could remem
ber that I was in England and not in India
I kicked that shoe through the window. I
never put my shoes on in India without
shaking them out to see that nothing was
jn them in the shape of snakes. This morn
ing I forgot that I was in England, and re
membered that I hadn't shaken my shoe.''
The third instance was something of the
same sort. I was coming from the Temple
station to the Strand when I saw ahead of
me a well known war correspondent. It
was a nasty, slushy day and I hurried to
catch up with him. On one of the streoU
leading from the Strand to the embank
ment a good deal of building is going on.
At the moment I speak of a cart filled
with gravel backed up to where the build
ing operations were proceeding and the
man opened the back of the cart.. The
gravel with a ru.sh ami roar fell out on the
road. Instantly my friend, the war corre
spondent, flung himself face down in
the mud. He got up rather sheepishly,
looted around him and brushed the mud
off his trousers as well as he could. When
I came up to him I said:
'What in the name t wonder made you
do a thing like that" You didn't trip,
"Xo," he said, "I didn't trip. I threw
myself down," and he laughed rather un
comfortably. "It was Lke this, you see.
You heard that gravel shoot out of the
cart? Well, that is exactly the sound of a
shell overhead. Coming up from the sta
tion I was thinking of the Russo-TurkLsh
war, and I was really at Plevna and not in
London at that moment, and when I heard
that rush of the shell I was down on my
knees before I thought of it. That's what
we always did when we heard a shell com
ing during the war. If you are down on
your face in the sand yon are riot so apt to
be hit by the fragments." St. James Bud
A Cobra Wonted.
The Ceyloa papers described a fight be
tween a cobra and two mongooses, which
was witnessed by a number of residents of
Colombo. It took place as an exhibition
at a private house for some visitors. For a
little time the mongooses were averse to
attacking the cobra, though they ran
round and round it inquiringly. The
snake, which was a splendid specimen of
the deadly cobra and beautifully marked,
exhibited much alarm as soon as it saw
them, and curled itself up, ready to strike.
After some time the mongooses warmed
to their work, and the fight began in earn
est. Again and again they dashed in and
beized the snake by the tail or the lower
coils of its lody, jumping out of striking
distance beforethe cobra could touch them.
Their agility in this respect was amazing.
Tired out with watching them run first
one way round and then the other, making
an occasional dart in and jumping as rapid
ly back again, a time came when the cobra,
failing to turn with sufficient speed to face
the mongooses, the latter sprang in, seized
the snake by the back of the bead and
killed it at once. A number of instanta
neous photographs of the fight were 'taken
while it was in progress.
Class of Men Who Went West in '49.
The wildest excitement and activity im
mediately prevailed throughout the United
States, and every city and village throbbed
with a feverish impulse to rush to the dig
gings. The difficulty and expense of reach
ing this terra incognita restrained thou
sands from the attempt, so that only those
who pos--e.ssed natural courage or advent
urous proclivities or whose local attach
ments were weak actually made the great
plunge into the unknown experience which
awaited the gold hunters of '49.
The world has never witnessed so motley
and promiscuous a throng in pursuit of a
common object as sprung into life simul
taneously in the winter of 1S4S-9 and turned
their course toward the gold fields of Cali
fornia. Men of all ages, clergymen, pro
fessors, doctors, lay were, farmers, traders,
mechanics, laborers of every degree, ad
venturers, thieves, gamblers and murder
ers jostled one another in the struggle to
gain access to some of the avenues which
were supposed to lead to the desired goal.
An Applied Lesson.
A little girl went shopping the other day
with her mother, who, making purchases
at various stores, gave as the parting word,
"Piease charge them to my husband, 20
street." At night the little girl,
half sleeping and tired out, said in conclu
sion, "I pray God to bless my mother and
my father and my little brother, and send
bill to papa, 36 Btreet." Springfield
