Newport started like a house afire I and tried to clean up Charley Thomas' bunch at the go-off. They found out before the game was half over that the Harrisburg Telegraph honors are won on merit this season and that Xewport was up against a fast bunch. When the game was sliding away from Newport enthusiastic fahs offered any prize in real money to Newport play ers to make a hit and win the game. An error by Sterrtck in the first gave Newport their first run. An error by Scheffer in the ninth allowed two runs to score. Krrors by Briner and Wagner were responsible for two of 1 Ilarrisburg's runs. The play ins: of H. Wagner and Man- I ning featured for Newport. Gerdes, I BOM and Mersinger were stars for the I Telegraph. White's catch of a foul fly with two on base and two out and one j run needed to tie in the ninth was a pretty play. White had to pun through ; the crowd and take the ball coming ; down along the wire screen close to j the grandstand. Mersinger robbed -J. Firmer of a home run by pulling down his lone | drive as it was about to go over the I fence. Kline and Davis batted timely. The score: NEWPi >RT R. 11. <». A.

Harrisburg Stars Work With Penn State Squad Harrisburg will have two good men ! on the Penn State football team this ! season—Harrold ("Fat") Clark and , Harrold Fast, both former captains of ' the Central High elevens.

Sept. 14.—When more than half a l»;indred candidates ans wer the call of Captain Albert Jour neay. of the University of Pennsylva nia football team, this afternoon, the squad will he minus the services of at least two of the veterans of last year, who find that they cannot report for a week or more. Bob Bolger and Rus sell. both members of last year's eleven, are not expected to don togs for some time, as both have consid erable work which demands their at tention before turning their minds to the gridiron game. MONDAY F.VENING, 1 Braves Lead Race I By Two Game Margin Special to The Telegraph New York, Sept. 14.—Boston im | proved its grip on first place in the National League race last week and now holds Jhe lead by an even two game margin over the Giants. The ! Braves defeated the Giants two games lin three, and won enough additional | games from the Phillies to bring their I playing rate for the week up to the i -HK7 mark. Meanwhile the Giants, losing five i out of nine games, were playing only | at a .444 clip. This pronounced dis parity shows why Stalling's men. des i pite their Saturday defeat by Brook | lyn. are to-day well out in front. The chances of the Giants regaining lost ground seem poor unless their 1 pitchers do much better work. Mar quard has failed to win even fine of his last ten games, and Demaree has been of little use all season. Tyler, of Boston, was hit rather hard his last time out, but James and Rudolph are pitching well, while Da vis, the resulit who held the Phillies runless and hitless in one of last week's games, seems to be a tind that will help the pennant chases of Stall ings' men appreciably. St. Louis and Chicago are having Ja pretty struggle for third place, with the advantage on the side of the Car dinals. Their double victory over Cin cinnati. to-day put them within 214 games of the Gianti. Roston cut into 'he Athletics' lead ! in the American League race last week j but the Red Sox are still 7 games I distant from the world's champions. A I continuation of the slumping tenden | ' ies the Athletics have shown in the (last two weeks, however, might give | at least a semblance of interest to the Iclosing days of the younger league's season.

Dr. Clay ton A. Smucker. pastor of Stevens Me morial Methodist Church, Thirteenth and Vernon streets, took a crack at Sunday baseball and "social snobbery." He said, in part: "Sunday is the big day of the week. The week-days are the days of the hand. Sunday is the day of the heart. It is the large day for the larger uses. We have 110 right to prostitute the day. Do the Christian patriotic people of the state of Pennsylvania want it? God forbid. "The church of to-day is not a re frigerator for preserving perishable piety. It is a dynamo for charging human wills. A church is not a club for social snobs, but a hospital for the healing of broken hearts and a home of refreshment for the weary and troubled souls. The chjureh does not exist to afford amusement, but to offer instruction and inspiration for living a life of godliness. The business of the church is not to furnish hammocks for the lazy. It Is rather to offer well tltting yokes for drawing life's loads. The object of the Church is not to tell how to dodge difficulties, but to fur nish strength and courage to meet and master them." ELMIRA LANDS CHAMPIONSHIP Utlca, N, Y., Sept. 14.—The nine teenth season of the New York State Baseball League ended to-day, El mira, which dislodged Wilkes-Barre from first place, last week, after the Pennsylvanians had been at the top nearly all season, won the pennant.
