I amor Hul for a world'! Rerlea ga me the whole general a pad aeenu d nppretslve. The autumn classic has outgrown the Tlmit of acoom mods t Ion. Within t he lapt few e:i rs l he people h i ve heen educated to aspect a more gentroua arope ot freedom than was possible in William K. Baker's cramped quarters It seemed tight squeeze through the narrow doors and up t tie narrow, crooked stairs. The old ftshlonsd Matl Vre warped and t ramped themseh en and Boon warped ami cramped the forma and Bp! lit! of their o.rupanta The gloomy stands seemed to run out Into the playing Held la menace the ac tive partlclpanta Temporary seats had been built in on the foul apscsi whor ev. r there was I he lea st room or ex ruse for one That Sid lit of gpofttvs falrnssi ho charactoristh of American manhood rs belled, perhaps, at oheerlne; Alexander da to undeserved victory, tfhort out- pilchtd Alexander all the way. The fact Saj evident to the verient novtre. In ttch of the Rral eight Inning Monton got a Clean hit off the illuatrioua maater of t he pitching raft. A few s rat. li Ingleej, lueklly hunehed where thsy would prove most damaging, proved the undoing of Shore. Shore pitched one of the most heartful games of any World! series. Only three tlfPASj was the bdll hit out of the infield against him. Uhd was a single by I'askert, Wtlleh paved the way to Philadelphia's lirat run but Which flobliiell tlppOa with his mitt on a desperate try. The othern were comparatively easy flies for Speaker and Hooper respe'tlvrly. In the estimation of the expert Shore might have won deaplte all the tanta lizing breaks Iti the luck but. for the unfortunate mistakes of Hohlltzell and Scott. The former waa trapped flat footed off first base for the third out of the Mrat inning. Hoofier, who had singled, was Ofl third at the time, with every rhanee in hia favor to assist Hoblitrall Iti some baae running strategy. Lewis, at bat, opened the following In ning with a clean hit. the first of 'hia two off Alexander the reat. Alexander nt th's particular moment was plainly flurried Me hoi not settled to his reg ular game. He did not aettle until after hl mites had given htm a run. The other Instanre of mental aber ration was a defe naive Instead of an offensive miscalculation it spoiled one of the modi IttpSfb plays ever seen in any game and paved! the way to the Ph ill tea' two and winning runs in the eighth if Tit nr. after Boston had Juet tld. Stork had walked, with one out, when Banrroft hit a terrifV drive to the left of the pltOtter. Barry aped over behind aocond baae. very deep, for a barehanded stop. But when h turned to throw for a for e play on Stock, io and btholdi Shortafop Sentt. enthralled by a pl.iy on what he had mentally Calculated H sure base hit. had forgotten to rover until too late. A play almoti as merltorloue as Barry's had been delivered In the pre vious half of the inning by 'entre Fielder Pask. rt of the home team, yet It elicited a small response In eoniparlson to Barry's gem. Undoubtedly Paakert's great catch blorked a mighty fine chance of Boston to hammer out victory Instead of -imply tying the SOOTS. Hob IttSell, who had Just driven home Boa tons run. was on flrat with two out. i a rdnef Squarely met one of Alexan der's fast pitches, starting it midway between Paskeri and Whit ted. The centre fielder sped uuh kly bark with the impart of bat against ball. Without once faltering he managed to reach the hall on his last desperate stride and clung firmly to it deaplte hia mad ca rver. The crowd refused to rome out of Ha diffidence for this redeeming play of Paskert. Yet a few moment later It hotted HS tirst real outburst of entbu alasm over Barry's play. Perhaps the superb execution of the grim faced sec ond baseman of the Red Sox awoke some sympathetic chord In memory of the past glories of PonntO Mack's $100, AOQ Infield The Quaker eighth inning approached eomewbai the approved proportions of world's series OXCttOtJItnt From the time that Paskert was passed, tilling the bases with only one out and bringing up the mighty Qawy Cravath, tint II Hooper, a few mlnuies later, rlnstd 'he gOQIS with an easy popuPi Philadelphia saw Its oily real rooting The playing Rsld was heavy and scarred here and there by Are, for the management had burned oil to dry out the diamond Hummel1! Veteran Corps band waa early on the acene but It did not blare forth any unusual defiance in brass There was Jam neither within nor without that taxed the good nature o the city police on hand in profusion, deiplte t hi late unpleasantness between the chief and WiUiam F. Baker The Royal Rooters from Boston cre ated a mild flurry of excitement when they marched into the park about 1 ;30. just before the it..i Box took their prac tice, Their cheer loader, dressed in red snd equipped with a musical "imtato," led in thit harmonious battle cry of Pcaaie" that ha been the war ODQg of the Huh sin. e LtOl. The Boston rooter, carried Bed BOS pennant! of red and blue and furnished the only Ht Hklng ra lief to the otherwise sombre atanda. Not Utlttl the last Bed Sox batter had been retired did one of them give up hope And then they cheered the vanquished us lustily is they COUM have been ex pected to cheer victors. The foul umpires, Kb-m. CVLotlghltn, Rlgler and Kvona. filed out of the Boston dugout live minutes before 2 o'-doek. The game was delayed Iri spite of this prompt appearance, however, in order that the customary rites and reremonles might lie obser ed A flock of photographers napped the ofliials singly and in groups They sna pped ( 'arrlgun and Moran in that old stereotyped act of handshaking- They photographed the National Commission box and its cru panls. And when thev got all through the oflirial movie man had to go through the same procedure The umpires were quite as impressive as the triumvirate They WArt ringed out In brand new scen ery, blue serge suits and blue silk caps. Which stood out in bold contrast to the battle scarred habllaments of the rival wan Ofa The Boston rOOtS!! were most lavish in their o at ions. They extended the hand of welcome to every popular hem regardless of his allegiance as he made his first appearance at bat. Cravath and Cady. native sons, elicited a wild up roir when Old Cactus shook hands with the catcher on his first time up. Alex ander was treated even more warmly by tht visitors on hit flrst trip to the plate and responded with the first hit off Shore. For that be WOS cheered to (he echo Nor did the renowned though modest T Cobb, escape his meed of re -srsncs When he nonchalantly speared a Wicked foul tip that hurtled back Into the preti box. One little incident which may or may not have a great hearing on the final Issue perhaps escaped general observa tion in the txcltsmsnl of the situation At best II is more or less the nature Of a surmise.

The ball aerved was high and wide, evidently a pltchout. The nest one was low and made the OOUnt tWO and one. On the following pitch Barry hitched his lelt ones more. Hooper paid no at tention to the ball, which cut the heart of the plate.
