The Cincinnati club will play the first game of the double-header, starting at 2 o'clock, while the second game will be the regular league eon test between the Rochester and Har risburg clubs.

The usual charges will prevail at the grandstand. Put Up Great Game The Cincinnati team on its present eastern trip was a sensation until it struck Philadelphia, where the Phil lies set them back, but Charley Her zog has his men fighting hard and he Is building up a club that promises to make trouble in another year. The Reds have a great pitching staff. Her zog has announced that he will make his selections of pitchers from Dale, Schneider, McKenery and Lear. King Lear is a Cumberland Valley hoy and a former Mercersburg and Princeton twlrler. Several years ago he pitched a game against the Highspire club for the Harrisburg collegians. Herzog started his professional base ball career in the Tri-State League antf went to the New York club from Reading. He was a star with the New York Giants and was released to as sume the management of the Cincin nati club. Killifer, one of the Reds' outfielders is also well known in this territory. In Griffith, a young out fielder, the Reds have one of the best hitters in the National League and Wingo and Larke are a pair of high class catchers. Local Pitcher Unknown Manager Zimmerman has given no promises as to whom he will pitch against the big leaguers. It matters little for the International League teams are ranked almost as high as the majors and many Harrtsburg fans feel that at least three of the Inter national League clubs would make great fights In either the National or American Leagues. Harrisburg fans will have their last opportunity this week to turn out for International League baseball and give Eddie Zimmerman and his men their best wishes for a two weeks road trip. By their attendance during the re mainder of the week the fans can em phasize their support and eagerness to have the club remain in this city next season. Friday will be Ladies' Day, and it will also be a half holiday for the busi ness men who will have a chance to turn out and make it a monster after noon on the Island. The Rochester club will be the attraction on Friday and will close the season locally with a double-header on Saturday.

And black the night, and tense? With morning came the singing of the lark And joy for recompense: What matters it that ever, day by day, Up rugged slopes we fare? Do not Love's roses blossom by the way And sweeten all the air? Life's pathway is a toilsome one, I know. Thick-strewn with many a thorn; But oh, the Joyance of the noontide glow And rosy smile of morn! Full oft the footsteps falter in the road And slacken near the goal. But one clear bird song seems to lift the head And cheers the fainting soul. And so what boots it though the skies And black the night, and tense, Since morning brings the singing of the lark And joy for recompense? One day of golden summer amply pays For winter's storm and sting; One brief hour of pleasure well out weighs Long weeks of sorrowing! —Richard Braunstein, in June Farm and Home. nXKEUSBURG frfSjjft?
