In the second game the New Yorkers had things going their way until the sev enth, when Seymour took one of his trips "up in the air" and allowed six runs to come In, four of them being forced. "Lawyer" Mike Sullivan re placed him, but he too was easy. Score: First game New York ..0 0000001030 04 94 Boston 0 0000100030 1 5 It 1 Batteries Meekln and Wilson; Sulli van and Lake.

Philadelphia, Aug. 12. Baltimore defeated Philadelphia this afternoon in a game which was unnecessarily long drawn out on account of the excessive wrangling of the visiting players, three of whom were sent to the bench. Both teams played poorly in the field, but the errors of the locals were the more damaging in their results. Mc Graw wrenched his ankle sliding into third In the first inning and had to retire.

A gentleman heard that a young girl, whose mother was In poor circum stances was convalescing from a dangerous sickness. Forthwith he went to a fruiterer's and seoured some choice bunches of Hamburg grapes at l or thereabouts a pound. He carried them, not without eome self-satisfaotion, to the house of the invalid, and left them with her mother, who received them in S. dubious kind of manner that did not evince, he thought, much gratitude. This did not trouble him Jrreatly, however, but the next day wTien he called he received a blow which almost made him resolve never again to be generous to strangers. "How did your daughter like the grapes?" he said to the grim and undemonstrative matron. "Oh, pretty well," was the reluctant answer. "Did she eat them all?" was the next query. "Yes, she got away with them," was the reply. "But She is a good deal like me; she likes something nice and tasty like canned corn." Sacred Heart Eeview. fiTittnucml. Slock Market Continues Strong The Vol ume of Business Very Heavy. New York, Aug. 12. The volume of dealings on the stock exchange came near the high water mark of last Mon day, transactions footing up 743,000 shares on Monday. It was a rampant bull market all through, and the most striking feature of it was the assured touch with which a number of long burled and almost forgotten stocks were brought out to the light of day and a very noticeable degree of animation In stilled into them. The day's buying in fact stirred up the very dregs and sediment of the stock market and set them to spinning in the whirlpool of speculation. No more striking exhibition could be given of the all embracing character of the speculative spirit which has pervaded Wall street than the nature of to-day's market. The opening showed the lively spec ulation in Union Pacific still unabated, with no special news to account for it, The price jumped to 14 as compared with last night's close of 12V4 in the first few minutes of trading, but did not hold at the high point owing to the very lively selling for London account. Sales were nearly 55,000 shares and were only slightly exceeded by those of Sugar. The excitement in the wheat market accompanying the continued rise in wheat was still the predominant fac tor in the stock market as well and helped to carry up most of the grain carrying roads a point or over. There was a renewal of activity in the high priced industrials, notably Sugar, To bacco and Chicago Gas. These stocks made sharp rises at one time during the day, Sugar touching a new high price record at '148, .but all suffered keenly from reaction and were an ad verse Influence In the market. Statements of railway earnings con tinued favorable, notably Louisville and Nashville, which showed an increase in earnings for the first week in August of $18,614, Chesapeake and Ohio with an increase of $42,325 and Southern with an increase of $33,449. All of these stocks enjoyed special benefit from these statements as well as the benefit to the general Improvement of values. Lon don continued to sell stocks here and to be ignored in the effect. Sterling ex chahge, and more notably continental exchange, continued to show a weak ness and to go lower. ' ' The following are some of the sig nificant changes in the day's trading Atlantic and Pacific was advanced 1, Brunswick Mining company rose from 1 to 2, Colorado Coal and Iron de velopment company from 3 to 5; Balti more and Ohio from 1 to 1, Balti more and Ohio Southwestern preferred from 5 to 6, Hocking Valley from 3 to 4, Central Pacific from 1 to 1, Linseed Oil from 15 to 19, North American from 5 to 6 on sales of 11, 000 shares, Quick Silver preferred from 8 to 10, Union Pacific, Denver and Gulf from 4 to 7 on sales of over 15, 000 shares, Wheeling and Lake Erie from 1 to 2 on sales of 18,000 shares, and so on with other neglected low priced shares in a less noteworthy de gree. Net gains were the rule In the active list though the number of prom inent stocks in which the gains attain ed a point is 3mall. Many less active stocks show larger gains extending up to 6 in Starch sec ond preferred. There were fractional losses in Tobacco, Tobacco preferred. Brooklyn Transit, Chicago Great West ern, New York Central, Omaha, Ten nessee Coal and the Leather shares, Illinois Steel decline! 3 points. Transactions in bonds embraced an unusual variety of issues with the up ward movement, which has so long dominated the speculation unimpeded The purchases for continental account were very large and included the lead ing investment and speculative Issues, Gains of a point or so were numerous with bull sentiment very pronounced at the close.
