Harrisburg put up a game that would have been a credit to any major league aggrega tion. Walter Blair has his players do ing sensational stunts In every inning. It was worth the price of admission to a dozen games to see an exhibition like that offered by Harrisburg. Parsons pitched and had several brief intervals of weakness, but back of bim was a loyal team. Hard hot balls, labeled for two and three bases, and several for home runs, were nip ped by inflelders. and the outfield stars. Cook was the sensational boy. Mills, Elliott and Beed were in evidence, too. Binghamton Fights Hard Binghamton was not an easy victim by any means. Rapp pitched a good game and was prominent in fielding. Pepe and Brackett were fielding stars for the Bingoes. The two runs by the visitors came in the fifth on two sin gles, and a pass, with long throws from outfield. Harrisburg opened with three runs on two hits, sacrifice and error and sacrifice fly; scored one in the fourth on a hit by pitcher sacrifice and single; and two in the seventh on two singles, pass, sacrificed and stolen base.

Cook was a real robber at second pulling in hits. Blair's work on the coachline is a big factor and interesting feature. Those one handers of Cook's made the crowd cheer. Brown's foul catch along the fence was one of the many sensational plays. They happen every day. Harrison covers his territory with lightning speed Mills had a hot yesterday. He is coming round. This boy is moving some at first base. Xo games until next Saturday. Then see both games with Utica. Local patrons are overlooking many good bets these days. Brackett is a great star for the Binghamton team. "Red" Calhoun said last night, "I will have to hand it to Blair and Cock -111. They have a fast team." Reed is keeping on all sides of third sack these days. There ought to be 1,000 people at every game. The sport is as good as any International game played last season. WELSH-WHITE BOLT IS OFF Special to the Telegraph Minneapolis, Minn., July 22. l nability to agree upon a referee caused the cancellation yesterday of the pro posed 10-round bout between Freddie Welsh, EngUsh lightweight champion, and Charley White, of Chicago, which was to take place here to-night.

Many out-of-town entrants are ex pected as the entry radius has been ex tended to Include surrounding towns In the twenty-five mile circle.

War Department has just placed an order for 198 additional Packard Chainlets Motor Trucks, making a total of 716 Packards, valued at more than $2,000,000, purchased by the government since March 20, 1916. This sixth repeat order, calling for more than half a million dollars' worth of trucks, is based solely on the performance of other Packards already in the field with the U. S. Army. The terrific grind of border service has proved the superiority of Packard transportation for military work, just as strenuous, every-day haul ing in every line of trade has made the Packard supreme in the commercial world. It is highly significant that a very large pro portion of the Packard trucks produced are being absorbed by repeat orders from satisfied owners of Packard equipment. 3 \ 5 Our transportation engineers will gladly analyse your haul ing problem. There is no cost for this service, and you are not obligated in any way.

All sea son's and two world's records went by the boards In the free-for-all pace on the final day of the North Randall Grand Circuit races, when Single G, created a sensation, after Russel Boy had won the opening heat in 2:00*4 by coming on and nosing out Murphy's pacer In the second heat, duplicating the time of the first mile and then taking the race by tramping the third heat in 2:01%. It was by all odds the greatest speed exhibition In the history of the Grand Circuit and in only the special match race between Directum 1 and William was the time even approach ed. The world's records were: The fast est three heats ever paced, the three heats averaging 2:00 92-1000. The fastest second and third heats ever paced by the same horse, averaging 2:01. The season's records: Fastest first heat, 2:00V4; fastest third heat, 2:00% and fastest three-heat race, averaging 2:00 92-100. It was a wonderful race, and the only reason that the two-minute mark was not excelled was that Murphy saved Russell Boy at the finish of the first heat and Curt Gosnell did the same with Single G In the second mile. Otherwise both miles would have been below the two-minute notch. A. Shrelner and partner, Robert Shrein er and partner, Robert Shrelner and partner and H. Musselman and partner. The committee is more or less sur prised at the little interest that has been manifested thus far in the ladies' events as no entries nave been receiv ed for either the singles or the doubles matches.

According to reports the smallest crowd of the season witnessed yester day's game between the Athletics and j Cleveland at Philadelphia. No figures were given, but it is said the crowd ! was not large enough to pay a New I York State League guarantee. Winning 17 games and losing 11, is the record of the Harrisburg team since June 28. This Is an Indication that Walter Blair is developing a fast bunch. Harrisburg may have a tail end team, but the playing is equal to that of any team In the league.
