Two! ' Hall Games at Twin-City
The Moline Cute Kecatta tSaturday
1'he Malison Race mi VandrnfTa
An excursion to Peoria, the balloon
race at tbe Tower, camp, meeting and a
dozen ' - other attractions made the
. bleachers and prrand stand at the call
but those who were there saw an inter
esting came. Cunningham and Under
wood were tbe opposing twirlers and
each put up a superb game. The feat
ure was the timely hitting of the locals
which won them the game. The visitors
also put up a good article of bail, but not
quite good enough. It was one of the
last games the public here will have a
chance of eceinjr until next season, when
it is hoped a league will be formed that
will stay the season out. Below is yes

Saturday's game at Twin City park
was not very largely attended, ana was
raked in by the locals by a score of 9 to
5. George Nicol was in the box for the
visitors, while Collins officiated in a like
... capacity for the home team. Tbe work
of Collins was good, but Nicol was as wild
as a March bare sending nine to bases on
balls. - While not as exciting as it might
have been, it was a victory for the locals,
and tfaai'8 what the fans want to see. The

of 2,600 feet and landing almost directly
on tbe point of the Tower, while Prof.
Loomis ascended fully 4,000 feet and
then cut away. coming down
in the road west of the Tower, The
prize was awarded to Miss Mey, who
reached grcftind first, although her oppo
nent went much higher, and afforded a
great deal more of an entertainment in
his daring acrobatic feats in descending,
banging as be did by bis teeth and limbs
and giving in all a wonderfully nervy per
formance. The balloons were started 20
minutes earlier than the advertised time,
and this occasioned considerable disap
polnlment, and a loss as well to the street
car company, as a couple of hundred
people from the ball game started out at
5 o'clock, and seeing the balloons before
reaching the centre station, a great many
Manager Montrose was indignant too,
