A. crowd of ball players from Indiana,
wto b aye been soiouming in the city the
psst few days, went out to Twin-City
park yesterday filled with radiant hope of
a glorious yictory, and came back about
tw hours latir sore ar.d sick at heart.
Acad appearing man, one Brackett by
name, who accompanies the club and
handles the 540 at each game was in a
terrible frame of mind last night. He
wanted to do something, but he didn't
know what it was. He thought it all
over several times and finally concluded
thf.t somebody must go, and he looked
around for that somebody. His stem
eye fell on Davey Sowders and the latter
was doomed. He was called up and told
tht.t his name must be taken from the
pay roll, aDd so it came to pass that
D.-.vey, i,o had helrt the Joliets down to
th ee Li;s, was reieaectl. Beam and
Simmers was ihe battety for the
vit, tors until the middle of the
sixth inniDg when Beam was taken out
and Davey Sowders was put in his place,
th j latter allowing the locals r.ne run in
th? last three innings, the other 10
being made off Beam. For the
home team Browner and Sage was the
batiery, and the "Kid" pitched a good
Rame until the seventh inning when he
got a little leary, and in the ninth
lo-i Hautentauts run in sis scores.
Our boys played a good game and
found Beam quite fretly, but neither of
the pitchers for the visitors had much
support in the field, their work in that
direction being exceedingly yellow. Spill,
th.j visitors' snort stop, made a pretty
double play unassisted, and Nulton and
Ztis, of the locals, each cracked out a
rorini: hit to right for a home run. The
Twin Citys went to Quincy last night,
w jere iLey play three ganv-s and then re
turn and Ditty nine games at home.

Sowders will fill the bill? He has
been playing good ball eo far this season
and against the strongest clubs of the
league at that.

Ah, if rain had only interfered at the
end of the sixth inninc.
It ought to have been a shut out 11
t J 0 in favor of the home team.
It looks as if the club would have to
provide a system of relay pitching the
days that Browner officiates.
Browrer was all right up to the sev
enth inning. After that he was no
earthly good. Browner seems to have
trouble in getting his second wind.
Some of Eddie Fusselbach's old Dav
enport friends yesterday presented him
with some of the bats he used to handle
when he played there. It may break

About 40 young ladies have made
i.irangements to attend the ball game
en Monday acd will wear the home
team's colors. The boys will no doubt
feel encouraged and will play ball as
they never did before.
The latest reports from Peona aeny
the rumor that their club is to be trans
ferred to Aurora. The Peoria manage
ment announces that there is no ground
whatever for the report to b3 circulated,
und that Peoria will not allow the f ran
hise to be transferred.
Left Fielder Mackey reported last eve

ier. Mackey . bad a local physician's
Jrtiflcate that his leg was in a bad con

h:s idea waa to act fair if given a show.
Be wa severely hauled over the coals for
leaving the city without permission, and
told that the offense would not be toler

here or nowhere. He went back to Ster

Saturday if he is able.
Davie Sowders, who pitched the last
half of yesterday's game, was released by
Maauter Brackett, of the Terre ; Hautes

OUT OF SIGHT.
Poblie Spirit In Rork Inland Con

boalnic rules Onr Pavement and
The Mu ecatine News-Tribune of this
morning has the following on which no
comment is necessary:
Oa Monday last the writer paid a yisit
to Reck Island and Davenport. He saw
in both of thes cities not only numerous
stately blocks of stone and brick of ma
jestic proportions rising on every hand,
but what struck him the most effectively
were the miles upon miles of brick pave
ment which cover the streets of those
Rock Island is but little larger than
Muscatine, but there were not only three
miles of splendidly paved streets, but the
writer came accidentally upon a beautiful
park, which would have done honor to a
metropolitan city. A large ornamental
fountain ornamented with beautiful fig
ures, and basin, gu-trded by lions couch
ant, graced the centre of this square.
Near by was an ornamental drinking
fountain. But a few feet away were
lovely casts, life size, of classic originals,
guarding the approach to a handsome
band pavilion. Numerous collo.-sal vases,
10 feet high we stould judtre, artistically
wrought, and decorated in gilt, orna
mented different sections of tfae square.
At the northern entrance to the grouc. s,
were two lovely statues in brass, the one
' Drawing the Thorn," the other, "Cupid
Behind a Mask.'' In another quarter, was
a tall, rough monument in brownstone,
surmouLted by a huge American Ewgle in
brass, (the gift of the workmen at the
Arsenal). In another quarter was a min
iature log cabin in stone, the latch-string
plainly hanging out, and a garden show
ing in front. Smoothly rolled walks,
lined with comfortable settees, threaded
the grounds, and everywhere the green
sod was diversified with ornamental beds
One finds such beautiful squares only
in cities. Davenport is soon to have its
duplicate. Such parks bespeak the cul
ture and refinement of a place, and those
miles of f-mooth, brick-paved streets, tell
of the progressive spirit of a town.
Will Muscatice believe that while she
has yet to lay a single brick in her
streets, these sister cities have many of
their alleys already paved with brick,
and looking as neat and elegant as public
The saddening contrast between Rock
Island and Muscatine compels the ques
tion, "Why is Mutcaline so far behind?"
We have as beautiful homes as Ruck
Island can boast of, and as beautiful
shade, and everything deckres our tasie
and advancement in our .domestic envi
ronment. But when we come to mat
ters of municipil aud public enterprises
we are not in sight of our neighbors.

Another Kork Inland Hnolneaa Change
Within a few days the well-known
boot and shoe store so long owned by
Carse & Co. will have passed into the
hands of George Schneider. The trans
action has been practically consummated
and as soon as the invoice, now in pro
gress, is completed Mr. Schneider will
gain possession. The firm of Carse &
Co. entered business in 1879 and has
been one of Rock Island's wideawake and
leading business houses from the first.
Mr. Carse goes out of the shoe business
entirely and will devote himself abBo
lutelv to the soda water business. It is
not yet known what his partner, S. R.
Wrieht. will enage in, but he will
probably remain in Rock Island.
Mr. Schneider has had a great dial of
of experience in the shoe trade,, having
conducted two stores here successfully
for several years.

Josh Palmer has let the contract for a
new house to be built this summer. We
notice many improvements being made
all oyer the country in buildings, but the
continued heavy rains haye made the
roads in a very bad condition. They
will doubtless be repaired soon as crops
are gotten in and other farm work done
which needs prompt atlention.
