CHICAGO HOLDS THE LEAD. 1
A Lout Game with Boston Leave, th. Old
Man Still Ahead.
Chicago, Aug. 10. The "colts" were
unlucky at Philadelphia, setting beat
three times straight. But they managed
to pull off two out of three games at Boa
ton, and would have got the third if it had
not been for some t-lmrp practice by the
Boston first baseman, who fell on Coo
ney after having muffed a ball, and hurt
him so that he bad to be retired. Luby,
who was sent to left field in Cooney's
place, is not a phenomenon in that posi
tion, and about the first thing muffed a
fly. The club plays to-day at New York,
and upon this series depends largely the
question whether it shall come home at
