Between Wheeling anil .lackiion 'Without ai
any Special Feature#?Other Game*. 01
An audience of about 400 witnessed jjj
the game of ball played at Island Park
yesterday afternoon by the Wheeling
and Jackson teams. Wheeling's men
played an errorless game and won by a
score of 2 to 1. It was a peculiar kind '*!
of a game, for aside from the closeness
of the score there was nothing to arouse
interest and excitement. There were
no double plays nor brilliant stops, such
as characterized the game with Toledo ',I.
the day before, to make the audience *v
yell and go wild. It was the quietest in.
gathering that has witnessed a game this
season; it was only on two or three occasions
there was even a ripple of applause.
The Jax team, since its last appear- \
ance here, has been greatly improved
and strengthened, and if yesterdays
game is a sample of what they have .
been putting up right along, it is cer- ,u:
Uiinly a streak of the poorest kind of II'
luck that has kept them so far in the ng
rear in the percentage column. wj
It is well for the Wheeling men that
that they played without an error, for 0P
had they made any they would surely da
have iK-en beaten. It was oue of their of
oil* days in the hatting line and of the jn
seven'hits that were made, none were
better than singles. The visitors got tw
two more hits that Wheeling and one of Tj
them was a double. It has been a rare ge
thing of late for the visiting club to gi
have the most hits. wi
The score shows that it was not to any If
extent a pitchers' battle. Knauss did an
not pitch his usual game, and only
struck out two men. Parsons, who jo
pitched for the Jaxs, was a new one for te
the home team, and they never did Ui
solve his delivery, which was left-hand- ov
ed, to their full satisfaction. The one fit
run scored by the visitors was made by to
Curry, who led otrthe inning with a hit, fo
advanced two bases on the put-outs of sc
Kaflerty and Lombard at first, and scored ri|
on a hit made by Kagin. Crotty followed cr
Eagin with another hit, advancing him lo
to Kocond. and both advanced n ham 011
Yaik's mussed ball. Rafferty came near fr
tieing the wore in the seventh, but was M
put out at the home plate by a throw in ci
of Brodie's. pi
Wheeling's two scores were made as ni
follows: Nieliol got a hit, went to sec- t?
ond on a balk of Parsons and to third on' w'
a bad throw of Lombard's. Otterson a
went out on n fly, Nicholson hit to Parsons
and reached his base by reason of
Parsons throwing the ball to Crotty, ?
who cut Nichol olT at the plate, which 1
lie had foolishly attempted to rcach.
Nicholson then stole second and came
home on a corking hit by Crogan. C'ro- W
gan was then brought home by a hit by <>'<
Otterson, he having reached second oh y,
a play made to catch Nicholson at the

The Columbus club says that Jim nu
Curry "was released for reasons that jn
xmcern him more than any ono else ja:
ind which we deem it a kindness not
to moke public. The management will
ixert themselves to the utmost to secure ]
aot only a winning team, but a class of mc
slayers who will be a credit and not a re?

Mysterious tires have been frequent in
:eubcnville recently and Tuesday
ight's were no exception. Shortly aftei
o'clock George Kioto noticed a small
aze coming through the shutters in the
ar of Klineman's millinery store on
arket street. He immediately teleloned
to the Pluenix engine house and
i alarm was sounded from their box.
id both engines were on the ground
mrtlv. When the lire was discovered
jar the stairway much of a blaze could
)t be seen, but the heat when the door
as opened was hitense, which led the
omen to believe that the tire had been
iming for some time. The cast side
the interior is pretty badly damaged,
irticularly near the stairway, and the
rods on this side were nearly all deroyed.
From the surroundings it is evident
mt the lire started under the stairway,
it the cause is a mystery. Mr. Klinean
went to Cleveland yesterday and
is loss cannot be ascertained until lie

tat was not burned is damaged by war

cover his loss. The damage to the
