at Jtuverview ana otner sensation cat
erers, is now beinc carried on in Mil
waukee, where five riders were in
jured last night, Cleveland, Detroit,
St. Louis and Cincinnati. The death
and injured roll this year will make
the football campaign resemble a
scat tournament, but the authorities
let the mad grind go on while the
public pays admission to make the
death scenes a regular Roman holi
day. "Wild Bob" Burman has entered
the Elgin races, and before the en
tries close about an the star drivers
in this country will have declared
themselves in.
Word from Johnny Coulon, recup
erating up in the Canadian woods, is
that he can not be blamed for not
thinking of the fight game, consider
ing his wonderful surroundings. The
Logan Square . midget is a regular
back to nature kid.
Jimmy Brady, the local feather
weight, says he wants to meet Matty
McCue, the Oshkosh terror.
The skipper of Sir Thomas Lip
ton's Shamrock IV with which he will
seek to lift the American cup is W. P.
Burton, one of the cleverest yachts
men in England, who is said to have
participated in about 1,000 races.
Mrs. P. S. Fletcher, Chicago, won
the woman's national archery cham-
pionship at Cambridge, Mass., with
McLoughlin and Bundy, the Cali-
fornians, had no difficulty retaining
their title, as doubles champions at
the Newport tennis tourney.
Norwich, Conn., is entertaining

tournament is one of the quietest in
years is entirely .superfluous.

It must have been pity on the suf-'
fering Phillies thatjosjt the game for
the " Cubs yesterday, 3 to 1. Piling
up errors at opportune times gave
the Phils the runs necessary to take
the game off the platter and the
pitching of- Brennah did the rest
Cravath made his usual home run,
thanks to the bush league effort of
Williams to get the ball instead of
playing it safe. Errors by Evers,
Zimmerman and Corrjden helped the
Phillies' cause. Lavender pitched
corking good ball and deserved to
win, but his generous mates insisted
upon tossing off "the game, apparently
to change the monotony.
Hats off to Jim Scott. Death Val
ley Jim added another defeat to the
champions of the-world and held the
red-hosed athletes to three stingy
hits, accumulating his sixth -straight
win. At that, Jim had to pitch air
tight ball to win, for Anderson and
Hall held the "White Sox to four hits
and a lone run which resulted from
Buck Weaver's three-sack slam, fol
lowed by Joe Berger'B sacrifice fly.
