Yesterday being one of the: dates set
flown by Head Mogul Hlckey for the base
ball players to take fishing trips, the
millers rested. To-day Optimist Watkins'
hooslers are on the card. The men from
the banks of the Wabash have been play
ing In hard luck most of the season, but
they will probably make history repeat
itself by playing like the Pittsburgh when
they line up-against the millers.
Gene Ford being announced to throw
them over for the visitors, the local man
agement made preparations to take care
of a large delegation from Stillwater.
Richard Llewellyn Williams was slated
to do the honors for the locals.
Some anxiety was occasioned in St.
Paul yesterday by a visit from "Old Ro
man" Comiskey. The magnate of the
south end of Chicago did not attempt to
conceal the fact that he was after some
of the people who are described by the
official scorer as the "budding champs."
Huggins, Shannon, Jackson and Sullivan
were the principal objects of his atten
tion. Up to date President Johnston of
the local bunch has not been worried by
proselyting agents from the big league.

WESTERN LEAGUE WILL QIUT
Will Pull Out of Kansas City and
waukee In 1904.
Speoial to The Journal,
Milwaukee, Aug. 18.If Thomas Burns
sticks by his own statement there will be
no Western League clubs in Milwaukee or
Kansas City in 1904. It has been stated
several times of late that the Western
league would quit Kansas City and Mil
waukee, but no definite statement has
ever come from the Colorado Springs
magnate, who is reoognized as the lead
ing light in the Western league. Mr.
Burns made the positive statement to
Charles E. Mallon, sporting editor of the
St. Joe Press, who is viti.ting in the city
at the present time.
In speaking of the matter to-day, Mr.
Mallon, who is a brother of James Mal
lon, the board of trade operator, said:
"Recently, when Mr. Burns was in St.
Joe, I had an opportunity to have quite
a chat with him, regarding the future
policy of the Western league. That he
is disgusted with both Kansas City and
Milwaukee is putting it mildly. He said
that Kansas City was no good this year
whatever as a baseball town? and that
Milwaukee was no better. H e told me
plainly that if he had anything to do with
the league next season, that there would
be no olubs in Milwaukee or Kansas City
that there would be no clubs in cities
east of the Missouri river. He told me
that Kansas City stood eighth in the way
of receipts on the season, and that Mil
waukee was seventh, while such tail-end
clubs as Des Moines and Peoria were
ahead of them, Des Moines standing sec
ond in the list. He gave me to under
stand that he would like to get rid of Bill
Rourke at Omaha, altho Rourke himself
told me that he owned the franchise in
Omaha absolutely."

NOT IN HIS CLASS
Mil-
Horsemen Say Lou DillonWill Never
Prove Herself as Great *--- '
as Cresceus.
May Break Trotting Record, but
Cannot Equal Race Record
of Ketoham's Horse.
The sensation of the year in- the harness
horse world has been the phenomenal
speed shown by Lou Dillon, C. K. G. Bill
ings' little mare, whose mark of 2:02 3-4
has ben beaten .by but one horse in the
world, Cresceus.
It is considered almost oertain by horse
men that Lou Dillon will beat Cresceus'
mark before the season closes. In speak
ing of the performances of the mare, R.
F. Jones of the Minneapolis Riding and
Dr4vlng club said to-day:
"Lou Dillon's chances for breaking, the
record are very bright. Altho this is the
first year the mare has appeared in pub
lic, she has been trained for several years,
in preparation for either record trials or
campaigning. Possibly she could have
beaten the record before this if she had
been pushed. Drivers, when they are
sending a horse against time, usually try
to clip off the animal's record a fraction
at each trial. You notice that Lou Dillon
has reduced her own record steadily, tak
ing off a little at almost every trial. She
is now within half a second of Cresceus'
mark, and no one would be surprised if
she got below 2:02% on her next attempt.
"Admitting, however, that Lou Dillon
is a great mare I do not think that she
can be put in the same class with Cres
ceus. Lou Dillon has a wonderful flight
of speed, and for a mile she is perhaps
the fastest trotter we have ever seen.
You must remember, however, that Cres
ceus has been not only the best record
horse but also one of the greatest cam
paigners. H e was raced twice as a 2-
year-old, and was campaigned hard the
next year, and each of the four following
seasons. The work he did as a 8-year-old,
was quite wearing, and many horses
would have given out after it. At Spring
field, Ohio, in July of 1897, Cresceus start
ed in two races on the same afternoon,
and in a third two days later, trotting
nine heats in the three days. His work in
this and the following seasons stamped
him as one of the gamest and greatest
racers ever seen, and he did not go
against time until he had no more horses
to race against.
"Lou Dillon might be a great race horse,
as well as a record animal, if Mr. Billings
had decided to campaign her this year,
but on actual performance she is a record
mare and nothing more. She should not
be compared with either Cresceus, or with
Dan Patch, altho a comparison with the
last named would be difficult in any case,
Inasmuch as one Is a trotter and the
other a pacer."

Crookston, Minn., Aug. 18.The locals took the
first game of the series from Superior in snappy
game. Bradish for the home aggregation pitched
a good game. While he was pounded freely, few
of the passes with the willow made good. H e
only allowed four hits, while Morris for Superior
was touched up for seven. The fielding of the vis
itors was ragged at times. They were clearly
outclassed by the Crookston team in to-day's
work. The score:

Nonamie, the speedy mare owned by E.
W. Backus of Minneapolis* is making a
splendid reputation for herself on the
grand circuit and yesterday added to her
laurels at Brighton Beach by outstepping
six good flyers in the 2:09 pace. The race
was a dash at one mile and an eighth
with a $1,000 purse attached.
The Minneapolis mare had the best of
it from the start and won from Ebony
King,' her nearest competitor, by three
lengths.
The feature of the card was to have
been a mile against the world's trotting
record of 2:03% by the champion mare
Lou Dillon. It was decided, however,
that the track was not in good condition
and the mare was merely sent a fast ex
hibition mile. She went the quarter in
:28%, the half in :59, the three-quarters
in 1:30%, and the mile in 2:03%. She will
go to beat the record later in the week.

Charles D. Mower, measurer of the New
York Yacht club, was the center of at
traction at Erie Basin, New York, to -
day. The official announcement that the
rival ninety-footers would be passed under
the steel tape line brought an increased
crowd of spectators.
It has been variously stated that the
allowance for the challenger is from one
to three minutes, but the work of Mower
will decide that important point unless
a change in trim of either craft will make
a now measurement necessary. Both
boats wUl be measured with crews and
whatever amateur and yacht club repre
sentatives will sail on them, assembled
amidships and will accurately represent
the trim of the racers.
Yesterday was one of the busiest for
both crews that they have experienced
and the final polishing of the underbottom
of both challenger and fender was prac
tically completed by nightfall.
Thruout the day workmen were busy
completing the repairs on the rudder of
Reliance. The strain which bent the out
er edge of this Important factor at about
eight feet from its heel was said to have
been received some time before the New
York Yacht club cruise. It was discov
ered that the rudder was a little but of
true when the Herreschoffs boat was
floated in Erie Basin preparatory to the
oruise and clamps were adjusted at that
time and left for several hours in an en
deavor to strelghten the part
A strengthening frame of angle steel
was placed inside the rudder, where the
structural weakness was discovered, and
to this the bronze plating has been se
ourely riveted . The hanger on the lower
part of the rudder post has also been
straightened and yesterday it was pro
nounced perfect. ,
During the day the big Ratsey mainsail
which the challenger will wear during the
first race, was bent on and covered with
a tarpaulin in order to, protect it from pos
sible rain.
Alberta, representing the Neenah Tacht
club, easily won out in the first of a series
of races for the Green Lake challenge,
sailed in a fair wind over the twenty-mile
course at Green Lake, Wis., yesterday.
TRAP SHOOTING" .
One of the most successful single-day
shooting tournaments of the year occurred
at Jordan, Minn. There were four infor
ma l sweepstakes events preceding the
regular six events scheduled for the con
test proper, and nearly fifty marksmen
participated. Hirschy, the American trap
champion, was there, so were Morrison
and Wilkinson, seven other Minneapolis
men and nearly a dozen from the Conio
and other clubs of St. Paul. The strong
Shakopee and Jordan gun clubs were rep
resented also and there were present three
representatives of the St. Peter club.
The day was ideal and the Jordan
grounds were well nigh perfect, yet no
phenomenal scores were made. Out of
75 targets, Hirschy broke 70, Wilkinson
66 and Morrison 64. Wilkinson's record
was equaled by Novotney and Rowe and
McKay broke 69 of the blue rocks. In
all, fifteen scored above the 60 mark.
Fischer did the best work for the Shak
opee club, Phillips for the Jordan club and
Lurth for St. Peter.

One course between Buffalo and Cleve

IN THE PRIZE RING
Champion Jeffries will have his' hands
full for the next few weeks to come ac
cepting challenges from the ambitious
heavyweights who aspire to championship
honors. His announcement that he. is
ready to defend his title against all com
ers has brought an acceptance from many
of the heavyweights.
Tom Sharkey lost no time in putting
himself on record, and now comes Gus
Ruhlln. The Akron giant is anxious to
get another chance at the champion. Al -
tho defeated by Jeffries, Ruhlin says he
believes that he has improved sufficiently
since that battle to turn the tables on
the champion.
Word comes from Frisco that another
battle is in, prospect, with Sam McVey, the
gigantic negro, as the champion's op
ponent. The black boxer is reputed to
be a more formidable fighter than Peter
Jackson, with all that master boxer's art
and a greater punch in the bargain.
The big boilermaker is not particular
about color so long as an attractive purse
put up and the coast promoters are
willing to make it an inducement to Jef
fries. ":-..

champion of the world, and his sparring

short, all the dramatic effects^ of the actual drama on the
stage.
Practically this identical thing has been done by the
makers of "THE CONSOLIDATED ENCYCLOPEDIC LI-
BRARY." Over three hundred of the keenest, brightest,
most practical leaders, educators and writers were assembled
in convention-within the Imaginary covers of this work, and
the whole was planned with reference to their Individual
parts. The all-roundness of the work is assured by the
vastness and variety of talent employed. Then the Managing
Board-gave it the dramatic effect by the unique yet great
arrangement. Great arrangement because simpleand the
great is always simpleknowledge classified- topically that
is, classified so that it would be in proper eraer for reading
and fit to read if nothing more- could be said. But to make
it still more certain that no dust would accumulate on these
volumes nothing but the most appropriate, fascinating and
entertaining style of" text was admitted and to make sure-
ness doubly sure, all the points of interest in the text were Il-
lustrated, so that the road through these fields of knowledge
is literally strewn with fragrant, beautiful flowers. You love
to loiter and yet are beckoned on. It is not too much to say
that this Library is the most profusely, the most artistically
and the most aptly illustrated of any set of books ever offered
to the public. Such it is and it Is knowledge-conducive.
Then the whole is indexed so that you do not lose the
value of the alphabetical plan. The only really sensible use
which logic ever intended for it, is that it shall be a key to
the contents. The key is given without chopping up the con-
tents. The sensible arrangement made possible, the scholar-
ship employed made real, and the artistic genius made
beautiful the dramatic effect claimed.
Lay aside your prejudice against bookswhat a pity
there should be prejudice against such helpful things-^and
regard this more as an Institution, and think of getting all
this entertainment and advantage for $102.00. If you are
business-like and prompt, you can get it at the Introductory
price of only $75.00. (A saving of $27.00.)

KNOWLEDGE DRAMATIZED.
-The world has struggled long to find a way by which
knowledge could be made self-conducive. Just now and then
has some genius pictured some little action of the world's
*- knowledge in such vivid logical and dramatic form that the
- - whole world have been charmed into its study. Kindergarten
, irteacher*r,fcftve systematized child-knowledge so that children
^'"lettrn whHe they think they are at play. That convention of
scholars who could thus systematize knowledge for adults
would be entitled to your gratitude, for then you would ac-
quire knowledge where you have it hot, and you would round
out your knowledge where you have it, while being enter-
tained, that is, while thinking you are at play. Such a con-
dition would amount to a dramatization of a useful knowl-
edge, and to acquire that knowledge would be like enjoying
the lights and shades, the sequences and surprises, and in
