TALKED TOO MUCH
Millers "Chewed the Rag" and For
feited to Dcs Moines.
UMPIRE ACTED IN THE SECOND
Vhe Millers Were Leading; and Con
tinued the Game a_i» an Exhi
bition Contest.
The Minneapolis team "got gay" down
In Dcs Molnea yesterday, and did just a
trlflo worse than drop a game. They for
feited it. It seems that there were but
ten men In uniform on the grounds. Two
of them disputed a decision of Umpire
McDermott and did it so earnestly that he
put them out of the game. There was one
less than the conventional nine left, and
the game was declared forfeited to the
Haw-k«yes.
All the above occurred in the second in-
Ulng. Minneapolis scored four times in
the first and drew a blank, in the second.
Dcs Moines failed to land in the first in
ning, but In the second got into the game
fiercely. One man scored, one was out,
and the bases were full. Clark and Law
then took issue with the umpire over the
character of a ball pitched, and the umpire
•lid the rest. There were 2,000 people
present, and it was arranged to continue
the contest as an exhibition game. The

Fargo was behind. The boys fell on Gregory
making eight hits, including two homers for
nine runs. Delaney finished the game. 'The
final score was 13 to 11.

VERY GAME GAME
A., J. Stone's Story of a Mountain
Sheep Hunt.
ANIMAL MORTALLY WOUNDED
Climbs Along: the, Face of a Cliff
Where There Was no Sign of
a Ledge. V
In William T. Hornaday's recently is
sued "Notes on the Mountain Sheep of
North America," A. J. Stone contributes
an interesting account of the chase of
mountain sheep in their native haunts,
A GOOD BREEZE FILLS THE CONSTITUTION'S 16,000 SQUARE FEET OF CANVAS
and their habits when pursued. Says Mr.
Stone:
I found these animals everywhere above
the timber line, and almost always- occupy
ing the most rugged parts of the mountains,
the males particularly favoring the most
rugged and rocky ridges. . .
Five out of twenty-two specimens shot by
me tumbled over precipitous walls into in
accessible places and were lost. One of the
lost \ five was found in a bunch of three
resting on a ledge, seemingly not over a
foot wide, on the face of a cliff fully 2,000
feet high from base to summit. They were
not over 150 feet from the crest of the sum
mit, over which I leaned and watched, them,
unobserved, for some time. How they reached
the place or left it I could not tell.- •
One of my Indians came in one night and i
reported having crippled a large ram, which i
he failed to get. The next morning I de
cided we would hunt .in that direction, .in
the hope of securing the cripple, . as, I have
the utmost horror of leaving a crippled ani
mal of any kind to die a lingering death.
Reaching the level top of a high ridge, we
skirted it for a short distance, and then
separated into two parties. I took with me
the Indian who ' claimed to have crippled
the ram the day before. After following the
edge of a deep canyon for about a mile, he
; proposed that I should watch from above
| while he descended to look-for the cripple.
He had been gone for some time, and was
out of sight, when I heard him halloo. On
running along the crest for some distance
I finally discovered him making his way
up the bottom of the canyon, calling every
few steps. I could not at first make ; out
what he was up to, but soon a sheep made
its appearance from behind a jutting point,
and a little later it was plainly to be seen,
creeping along over the rocks ahead of the
Indian, up the rugged canyon, seemingly
with difficulty. I concluded the Indian could
easily get in range and kill the poor beast,
and I could not at first understand why he
did not'do so, but I soon came to the con
clusion that he had discovered that the eas
iest way of getting the skin and bones to
the top of the long, hard climb was to drive
the animal ahead of him, knowing that I
was at the top and would be on the lookout.
One Leg Broken.
As I proceeded to the head of the canyon,
in order to be ready to dispatch the beast
on its arrival, I could see that one hind leg
was broken; and as I watched the poor thing
jump from one crag to another as it mounted
that long, steep climb, I felt disgusted with
such proceedings, and would have gladly car
ried up the skin rather than see the animal
suffer, had I been in a position to do so.
While I was thinking what this animal must
have suffered during the preceding twelve
hours, of how exhausted it must be from such
a climb on three legs, and wondering if it
would really get to the top, to my surprise
it suddenly stood on the crest of. the canyon
wall, seventy-five or a hundred yards dis
tant, fully fifteen minutes sooner than I
thought possible. ' ' ' .
" As it turned toward me and caught sight
of me I raised my rifle and fired. It fell,
turning completely over, then it jumped up,
and was away across the ridge like a shot.
its broken leg swinging like a pendulum at
every Jump. As soon as I recovered. from
my surprise, I followed as fast as I could
run, only to see it disappear over the side
of the next canyon. It circled the side of
| the canyon wall, and took a stand on a jut
; ting ledge of rock, upon which, if I shot, it, it
would topple off down on to the rocks, sev
eral hundred feet below, and be ruined as a
specimen; so I sat down to - await its pos
sible change of position. After a short while
' my white man and natives arrived, and two
of. them decided to go around and chase him
down. As they approached him, down he
went, apparently as lively as ever, < and an
i other chase took place, lasting until the
white man was played out. "
From the edge of the canyon I could watch
every move. Twice the native tried his
smoothbore, but without effect, and I began
to think the ram would get away from him. It
climbed a . deep cut between two high t tur
rets in the side of the canyon wall nearest
me, and found its way , into a = deep cavity
In the side of one of the great natural abut
ments,* and lay down. The Indian could not
get to*the place, but threw stones. at the
poor beast until it ran out. As it left tEIs
big cavity it either had to leap directly down
fifteen -or •■" twenty feet or pass out "by the
Indian; and here is just where, it displayed
Its T wonderful capabilities in „ a most daring
manner. *:,. As *it emerged ■ from ■ the cavity it
crept along the wall, which to all appear
ances was almost I perpendicular, a and: con
tinued straight on for twenty-five or thirty
■ feet. It then turned around and came back
to the' edge of: the cavity, and leaped down
I falling; as it struck the: rock below; but it
i was ; immediately : up and ; away, seemingly
as game as ever. The Indian, who was with
in a • few ','■ feet of the ' animal at the' time
said that he could „ not see anything in ; the
shape of ,a ' projection on j the face |of the rock
for: the i animal to - ; walk -, on, nor * could * any
of ;. us i do :soat -a distance of ■, perhaps 'two
hundred yards with the : aid .-. of powerful
field glasses. ■ ;:yr-;;,.v ■:... \.'■:;*■_ : /.-,., ;,;. \ ../•-, : :;
„._!- No Sign of a Foothold.>. ; - ; \

■■ ~■ '■ ' .'.' ' ■' .- *
ment of the animal, and how it was possible
for it not only to walk the side of such a
wall, crippled as it was, but actually to turn
around and walk back, is beyond my concep
tion, for I am sure there was no place on
the face of the wall to which 1 could have
clung for even a moment.
The Indian again went in pursuit, finish
ing the animal soon after with a lucky shot.
I went dowu to measure and skin the ani
mal, but found the greater part of its coat
so thoroughly filled with blood, much of
which had dried and set fast, that I only
saved the head.
The shot the Indian first gave it had com
pletely smashed the left thigh. My shot had
entered the left side just back of the shoul
ders and a little above the heart, ranging
backward and upward, and passing out at
the right flank, tearing a fearful gash,
through which I could thrust my fist. It had
bled much, internally and externally: had
lived nearly twenty-four hours after its
thigh was smashed, and for four hours after
the wound I gave it, suffering from loss of
blood, making wonderful climbs on three
legs, and performing feats hardly to be be
lieved, even by those who witnessed them.
The animal was a 4-year-old ram, and a
magnificent specimen.
FOUR-FOOTED BUFFALOES
A Herd That Made Its, Home iv East
Minneapolis.
In the April number of Recreation, G.
A. Reichard throws a little light on the I
origin of a herd of buffalos which had the
right of way between Minneapolis and St.
Paul in 1860, and led H. H. Thompson to
the conclusion that the same were wild.
Says Mr. Reichard:
In 1865 I was a boy, and living in St. An
thony, now East Minneapolis. A man named
Peel, who kept a livery stable, lived on the
adjoining place. He owned several buffaloes,
captured in the Red River valley-, near the
Canadian border. They were kept, together
with two bears and a few other animals, in
a yard. The buffaloes were allowed to run
at large at times, or possibly may have
broken out of the enclosure, for I remember
seeing them grazing with domestic cattle
on the prairie.
Just What became of the buffaloes I do
not know. Peel fitted out a primitive Wild
West show with his animals and a few In
dians, and started it out in charge of his
son Sam. The show was not a success finan
cially, and went to pieces somewhere in the
east. The animals never returned to St.
Anthony, but the Indians finally did, much
disgusted with the show, business. ,

A GOOD BUNCH OF STARTERS
Charlotte Gave a Pretty Demonstra
'* • tion of Her Qualities, an a.
Liffht Weather Boat.
Light wind prevented an exciting race
but abated not ■ one whit the interest in
the Minnetonka Yacht Club regatta Satur
day. The winners rounded the home buoy
at the finish just inside the time limit.
while the majority of the yachts failed to
cover the triangular course in the pre
scribed two hours and a half.
With the scorching heat of the sun
rendered doublely oppressive by the lake's
reflection, eighteen undaunted skippers of
first-class sloops, second-class sloops and
catboats were ready for the starting
guns. There were seven first-class
sloops, six second-class sloops and five
catboats.
The wind which had blown light from
the south all day, freshened considerably
at 4 o'clock, when the first gun was fired,
and it looked for a while as though a good
blow would give yachtsmen a chance to
show their seamanship.
An interesting feature in the catboat
class was the contest between Siren and
Varuna, between whose skippers there is
much friendly rivalry. Commodore Wet
more had previously dry-docked Varuna
and polished the trim craft up in prepa
ration for this race. He freely backed his
belief in the ability of his boat to
"do" Siren. In spite of Mr. Wet
more's precautions, Skipper T. E.
Sammis easily showed the way, and Va
runa withdrew after the second round.
of^POItT
With the first-class sloops, the Widow
led during the first half of the race, fol
lowed by Dixie and Charlotte. As the
wind subsided, Charlotte, one of the
fastest of the light weather~i>oats, moved
quickly up the line and passed the lead
ers. Charlotte won by four minutes over
Widow.
On the third leg of the last round, while
working to windward, Water Witch, Skip
per Fred Payram, carried away her throat
halyards, and her mainsail came down
with a run. At the time she had a com
fortable lead over her competitors, but
before the damage could be repaired and
while she was drifting rapidly to dee
ward, We're Here passed her and secured
a lead ot several minutes.
After starting again. Water W Titch
gained rapidly on We're Here, but while
on the windward stretch the second time
around and almost at the same point
where the first mishap occurred, the
throat halyards again parted. After los
ing several minutes, Water Witch got
nuder way for the third time and in spite
of her hard luck, Skipper Fayram suc
ceeded in landing the stanch little boat
in second place, being beaten by We're
Here 5 minutes, 35 seconds, actual time;
7 minutes, 35 seconds corrected time.
Nightingale was unable to start in the
race because, by an unfortunate mistake,
her large racing jib had been left behind.
Although the start was deferred for
nearly half an hour to enable her skipper
to get his sail, he was unable to make
connections in time.
The Sallie, sailed by Skipper Hillman,
made a fine showing in the second-class
sloops. She gained over 2% minutes on
the rest of the boats of her class during
the first round. Whitman and Wilbur
Thayer, owners of the Sallie, helped man
the yacht and contributed greatly to her
showing.
Beyond scorched faces, hands and arms,
the jolly tars who took part in the race
suffered no inconvenience.
It has been suggested, however, that
if any more regattas are held during the
heated term, the course should be re
duced to 6 2-3 knots, or twice around the
short triangle, Instead of three miles,
as heretofore. This suggestion will
probably be adopted, and the time allow
ances of the different boats adjusted ac
cordingly.
The next event scheduled by the Mln
netonka Ice Yacht Club is the annual
cruise—Saturday, Aug. 3, at 10 a. m., to
Chapman's in the upper lake. All own
ers of sailboats and power launches will
be invit6d to participate.

THE HOPES OF IOWA
Opinions Differ as to Her Prospects
in Football.
GOOD NUCLEUS FOR A TEAM
The Squad Will Go Into Quarters
Near lowa City About :
Auk. 29.
lowa City, lowa, July 15.—Candidate*
for the University of lowa football team
will go into camp at Linder'a boathouse,
two miles north of the city, Aug. 29, for
the purpose of preliminary training. Cap
tain Clyde Williams says:
We will need early training thla year more
than ever before, as we will have to break
in so many new men to take the places of
the boys who were graduated. Our prospecti
for the state games for the season are pret
ty good. Outside of the state games I do
not believe we will do much. We cannot
hope to have as good a defensive team as
last year. I do not think that we ever can
expect that. The lowa team of 19C0 was th»
strongest defensive team in the country. We
will be weak next year in backs and ends,
which will be the hardest places to find ma
terial for. We will also have to develop a
good kicker.
Manager McCutchen takes a more hope
ful view of next season's outlook, and
states that lowa will have a team that
will maintain her reputation. He states
that he has the names of fifty men from
whom he has received letters asking for
the privilege of early training at Camp
Linder. McCutchen announces that of last
year's team Williams, Burrier and Little
will be back and that with the captain
as field general, and the other two men
in the line, there is an excellent nucleus
to build a xeam upon. Hollenbeck, the
Wisconsin mi n, who was ineligible to the
first team lan year, and who was the
whole thing on the scrub team, is ex
pected to be i. tower of strength in the
line. Morton, who has played an excel
lent game at half for three years; Wat
ters, the almost Invincible end for the
last two years, and Brockway, the heavy
guard, may be in school next year. If
these men join the returning force the
team will be strengthened 25 per cent.
Captain C. A. Brown of the track team,
whom the trainers have not allowed to
get mixed up in the rough game of Rugby
for fear of injuring his exceptional abili
ties on the cinder path, has signified his
intentions of training for the team. Brown
will undoubtedly make a fast back-field
man. Other candidates are: Sieberts,
Coulthard, Briggs, Macy and Dye, all of
whom got a "taste of gore" in the big
games last year, and won many admirers
on the gridiron. Melton, McGuire, Her
bert, Pomeroy, Maresh, Mantz and Crum
played on the second team last year, and
will moke hard fights for the places on the
team of 1901.
Dr. Knipe Will Return.
Dr. A. A. Knipe, the Pennsylvanian,
to whom lowa is largely indebted for
her football reputation, will again be
head coach. Sam W. Hobbs will assist,
and probably Joe S. Warner, last year's
punter, will also be on the coaching staff.
A strong schedule for the first team has
been arranged. The second's team sched
ule is not quite completed, but several
colleges are after the open dates. The
following is the first team schedule: Sept.
29, Upper lowa university at lowa City;
Oct. 5, State Normal, at lowa City; Oct.
12, Drake, at Dcs Moines; Oct. 18, Ames,
at lowa City; Oct. 26, Minnesota, at Min
neapolis; Nov. 2, Knox, at lowa City;
Nov. 9, University of Illinois, at lowa
City; Nov. 16, Grinnell, at lowa City;
Nov. 28, University of Michigan, at Chi
cago.
