The, fans who journeyed to the
Moorhead ball park yesteiday, found
the giand stand upset and they were
compelled to sit on the bleachers or
grouped abcut the walls of the "arena"
under the fclaaing sun. Despite that
fact and in spite of the fact that Grand
Forks came through wit'.i the long end
of the score the crowd got. :ts money's
worth for it was a heart-breaking see
saw contest*, that way anybody's game
until Weidell was nipped at the plate
in the last Inniag.
Grand Forks ounded the ball liar-l,
and neither Ferris nor Beisser suc
ceeded to any appreciable extent in
tiring them out or keeping them guess
ing. On the other hand, the Grain
growers were unable to hit opportune
ly, and although they came within one
.of it out in the last ditch, the visitors
copped the victory, 5 to 4.
Unglaub tied the score in the eighth
inning on a home run, but Freer came
back in the ninth with another homer,
upsetting the layout for the home team
and gaining an advantage that could
not be overcome.
Thfl Forks team made its first
circuit in the first Inning. After1 Mc

out of the running.
Snow hit but was caught at second
when McGraw was given the advant

was followed by Flaherty's foul fly to
Peterson and Altman's failure to beat
one to first.
Ferris fanned, Schuler was thrown
out on a relay to first knd Sullivan flew
to left field.
Anderson and Nifneoker both hit,
and Ferris was in a tight place. But

and Snow went out on a double play,
Ferris to Murphy to Greisel.
Dreite flew to short, Unglaub watked
but was caught at second atid Doyle

The visitors continued their credit

knocked a three-bagger and scored
when Flaherty got a single and was
advanced to third on Sullivan's error.
At that point Beisser relieved Ferris,
who had wilted under the severe rays
of the sun. Altman flew to left field
and Anderson hit and scored Flaherty.
But Anderson went out at second and
so did Nifnecker, who reached first on
fielder's choice.

threatened from the bench all after
noon. Doyle hit and stole, but Greisel
was relayed out at first.
With the score tied for the second
time. Freer came to bat in the ninth
and bumped one over the fence, mak
ing the circuit without interference.
Although Flaherty, Altman and Ander

matter, for the run was sufficient to

Things started out all right for the
locals in the last of the ninth, when
Weidell was passed by Hanson, who
relieved Larson. Murphy sacrificed
and Beisser flew to center field. Then
Weidell was caught out on the home
stretch as Schuler was permitted to

Buffalo Shuts Out Dilworth.
Buffalo, N. D., July 27.—In a pitch
ers' battle the local team won over
the fast Dilworth boys by a score of 2
to 0. Fiddler of Dilworth struck out
thirteen men and allowed four hits,
while Feuerhelm for the locals receiv
ed eleven strike outs and only allowed
two hits. The rest of both teams play
ed air tight ball and only one error
was made by the locals, and three by
the visitors. Although slightly out
classed in the art of score making, the
Dilworth boys are professional gentle
men, which the citizens of Buffalo ap
preciate more than winning the game.
They lost the game like true sports
should and any time they want a
game the Buffalo team will willingly
give it to them. The N. P. should be
proud of these boys as they are a
credit to the company. Score:

New York Sun: The appraisal field

Hutter left a fortune of $1,168,172. The
appraisal states that since the porce

Sporting News of
New York, July 27.—The two world's
series contenders of last year struck
their strides in the week just closed,
each playing for the first time this
season at a real pennant-like clip. The
New York Natioals breezed through
the week with a clean record of five
games won and none lost. The Phila
delphia Americans went their old
time rivals one better, scoring six vic
tories, meeting no reverses and run
ning their first sustained winning
streak of the year up to ten straight.
The brilliant work of the Athletics
and setbacks for four of the teams
that were pressing them cloaely less
than a fortnight ago has resulted in a
lead for the Mackmen that the trailing
clubs will find lt difficult to overcome.
In the National league, however, the
situation is materially different.
Playing just about as consistent ball
as in the palmiest days of their nota
ble past, the Chicago Cubs have suc
ceeded in keeping tho National league
race at a pitch of tense interest. In
the past two weeks they have match
ed the Giants victory for victory and
even gone a trifle beyond this. The
fortnight's record shows O'Day's men
to have won ten games and lost two,
as against nine victories and three
defeats for the New Yorks. The result
of the stlck-to-lt-iveness of the Cubs
is that a bare two and a half games
separate them from the leading cham

gins' men had won seven straight
games up to Saturday when the Phil
adelphias downed them, and are play
ing consistently.
Boston's spurt which carried the
team from the cellar position up to
fourth place within less than a week
has been a notable feature o{ the
league race.
Pennant aspirations of several clubs
were further blighted in American
league play during the week. Detroit
came to New York and was conquered.
Washington, trimmed by Cleveland in
three out of four games in the series
completed early in the week, only
broke even on the week's play, but
pushed Chicago further dwn by bfat
in*f Callahan's team two in three
games. St. Louis, which broke even
in New York by winning a double
header on Monday, was set back as
far as It had advanced by losing both
ends of a double bill to Boston.
New York proved about the worst
stumbling block for all the western
visitors on their trip, none of thcni
taking a series in a city where notable
percentage gains had been counted
upon. As for the Boston's, their re
cent climb has caused them to be
picked up by some observers as the
most likely rivals of the Athletics In
the home stretch of the race. They
jumped from fourth to second place
during the week and started their
western trip ausplciusly by taking two
in succession from the Clevelands.
This gave them ten straight wins.
The White Sox pitching staff seems
to have regained its fine form but the
club is doing little against oppoaing
box men.
The record In each league of games
played, won and lost during the week,
with runs, hits, errors and men left on
bases follows:

Association Leadership Doubtful.
Three teams took turns in leading
the American association race last
week. At the beginning, Milwaukee
was in front but the margin by which
the Brewers led was so small that
when they lost both games of a dou
ble-header to Cleveland the latter
climbed to the top. On the same day
Sunday Louisville took second
place, Its distance behind Cleveland
being so short that the difference in
their records did not appear In the
three figures of the precentage col
umn. A double victory over Minneap
olis was responsible for the Colonels'
advance. On Monday, Cleveland again
downed Milwaukee while Louisville
took another from Minneapolis, so the
situation out in front was unchanged.
On Tuesday, however, Sheckard's men
found the pace too swift and with the
Brewers showing a return of their
championship ability dropped two
games. Louisville then went into the
lead, making a clean-up of the series
with Minneapolis. Wednesday was an
off-day in the association, and as each
of the three leaders won on Thursday
their relative positions were unchang­

In the Federal league, Chicago
maintained its lead but Indianapolis,
erstwhile pace-setter, suffered enough
reverses at the start of its eastern trip
to drop from second to fourth place on
Saturday. Finding St. Louis easy
Baltimore advanced to second place,

took three games out of five and ad

Second division teams among the

Louis, showed a flash of winning form.
Buffalo remained about stationary, re

the week with a double victory over
Detroit, Mich., July 27.—With the
largest entry the Detroit Driving club
has had in many years for its Blue
Ribbon meeting, which opens today,
firand Circuit trotters and pacers are
here for a five days' racing carnival
at the state fair grounds, which
promises new track records and per
haps the lowering of world's records.
The club officials claim there aro
about 30 per cent more horses entered
for the Detroit program than raced
in North Randall track last week. The
fast time made by Cleveland and the
fact that those same horses will bo
here next week, besides the additional'
entries, are reasons why the local rac
ing followers are optimistic about tho
success of the meeting.

the weather Is satisfactory, the OV&tj
should be faster than ever before.
Is greatest when the weather's hot.
