There was a ground rule that n ball
hit Into the temporary left Held stand
should count na n two bagger only. As
it turned nut thai ground rulo favored
the Hostons because the Giants put
more nils into the stand than they did.
Any of these hits with a clear field
would have been good for three bases.
flnodgrass opened the grapple with a
nil or two base voltage. It cleared
Lewis's head and bounced Into the seats.
Nevertheless Snodgrass was left. Somn
New York partisan Implored Doyle to
give ine nan n ride." but Lurry struck
out on a high fast ball, flecker was
tnrown out by Yerkes anil Murray by
Collins, who made n clever stop of a
smartly rapped ball. The Hostons opened
the throttle In their half of the first
and, while tho Giants were wabbly,
reaped n harvest of three runs. Hooper
shot a grounder which slid off Matty's
hand and Matty couldn't get hold of the
globe. In time to nip the speedy Hooper.
Hooper stole second. Meyers making a
wide throw. He started for third on a
hit nnd run play, and Yerkes winged a
liner to Fletcher. The latter had a dou
ble play made to order, but dropped the
ball and dldn t get It to first In time to
get even one man.
Hooper was able to get back to sec
ond and both he and Yerkes advanced
when Speaker hunted. There was a
had misunderstanding on this bunt.
Herzog expected Matty to throw the ball
to him for a force, but Matty expected
Herzog to try for It. Neither tried for

at each other Speaker dusted to first.

more runs. The rally was stifled when
Doyle gathered Wagner's fly.

like a windmill at the first two. Herzog,
breathing defiance, strode to the platter,

When Fletcher seized Yerkes's skimmer.
New York's third was brief. Hooper
camped under Snodgrass's fly, Doyle
rocketed a foul to Gardner and Hecker
was thrown out by the nimble Wagner.
Nor did a llnstonlan get on In the third,
but the sole re.ij.on therefor waa u
scrumptuous play by Merkle. Hpeuker

In the fourth Inning the New Yorks
lopped another point off Hon ion's lead.
The way of It waa tills: Murray, whose
bludgeon was full of base hits, ripped
a three bagger to right centre. He had
to put on full ateani to reach third, for
Hooper made a tremendous throw from
the outskirts. Merklo pined away on a
foul to Gardner, but Herzog, the re
liable, filed to Speaker and Murray tal
lied on the catch. Meyera whanged a
hit through Wagner, but Fletcher's fly
to Hooper left him, '
Matty was doing fine In the third and
fourth Innings and blanked the Hostons

out Stahl with a fadeawny and Fletcher
handled Carrlgan's smash neutly, Math
ewson and Snodgrass both struck out
in the fifth and Doyle sent a parabolic
fly to Lewis.
. Hooper struck out on a fadeuw.iv In
the fifth, being completely fooled by the
lazy floater. Hut Matty wasn't to es
cape this round without a lacing. The
sun came out and Snodgrass nnd Mur
ray swapped fields, Murray first halted
the game to get his sun glasses, but
McGraw thought a better plan was for
him to go over to left. No sooner were
the two fielders adjusted to their now
quartet than Hooper spun a single to

Hoston, Oct. 9. Sometimes clghtean
highly talented nthletes will toll through
nine Innings of baseball In a skilful and
workmanlike manner without producing
enough, excitement to agitate tho taxi
cab drivers outside the park.
Then again the same professors of
ballistics and swntology will tear off a
duy'H work that contains half a llfoUma
of hope, triumph, fear, relief, despair,
surprise, romance, frenzied onthuslum,
palpitating fear, nervous dyspepsia, he
roic effort, spectacular blundering and
unfettered hysteria- It Is such baseball
games as these latter that are putting
the nerve specialists of thla country Into
limousine automobiles at a fearful rate
and are giving the poor ttred buslneu
man the kind of recreation that brings
htm to a sanitarium with a tangled ner
vous system and needing bronchial ra
lining. To-dny'n world's scries game between
New York nnd Hoston, with the rest, of
the country on the sidelines, was this
sort of n parnlyzlng pastime: It sliced
whole years off the latter end of thou-
sands of Huston lives. Not that Hoston
will feel thn loss now. but there will
come a time when those of her citizens
who blew out n flue during to-day's do
ings will fade nway Just before some
Important census. And then she will
wish, even more madly than she now'
does, that Lewis had thawed out his
hands In a ehestunt cooker In the roar
ing eighth before attempting to engulf
Snodgrass's mammoth fly.
The Europeans claim wo take our
pleasures sadly which Is no nearer
right than the Kuropcuns are on most
of our affairs. We take them gladly and
sometimes badly, but In baseball we take
them madly. There Is no more Imnres-
