IS W THEM Vast Quantities Devoured in Honor of Red Sox Victory. Beans, good old beans Beans, poor old beans Beans that Boston cooked with* pork Were a little too much For old New York. There were more beans eaten In Grand Forks Jast night than ever be' fore in the history' of the Flickertail section. The little berries were de voured by many for the first time in their careers on this whirling mass of surprises called earth. The Boston bakeds were eaten in profusion in honor of the greatest baseball victory ever achieved in America, this particular winning hav ing been accomplished by no lees a star aggregation than Jake St&hl's Boston Red Sox. Persons ate boans last night who had never deigned to taste them before and all these first timers pronounced them the greatest fruit they had ever eaten, simply be cause they were manufactured in the hamlet where Bunker Hill monument stands as a reminder of another great conflict between men. Beans last night made up the meal in nearly every home In town and in the restaurants and cafes they were as popular as a soothing concoction in the cool gray dawn of the morning after the night before. From the enormous amount of beans that were sent stomachward it seem ed that nearly everyone had either bet on Boston or was eating In. honor of a lucky 'friend. One man in particular. It is said, nearly foundered himself on beans, This man is one of the greatest fans the prairie land has ever known and in sporting circles he is recognized as Frank Brown. When Brother Brown Is not keeping books at the Times-Herald office he is usually talk ing baseball. He claims to have lived in Bostlng at one time. At least he said, so after the last half of the tenth inning had been played yesterday aft if he left oft his r's. Perhaps he did if he left off his rs. Perhaps he did before he became North Dakotaized. Brown, in the exubetanee of joy over the outcome of yesterday's conflict, ate fifty-six varieties of baked beans :ind then called for the fifty-seventh. He is not the only person who did he same -stunt! but we know he will rtand for this, so we take particular ilns to -call attention to hisr case. Practically every resident of this icorporate district laid some claim Boston last night. Some men who 'lad heard that such a place occupied position on the map declared that their great great grandpaps had biv ouacked there in the days of George Washington. Others said, "sure, I now all. about Bosting. It is a. small military camp, surrounded by Stahl warts, and is' In that part of the' unl erse known as the-American league.' Quite right, quite right, only they for •ot to say anything about the beans. Beans will most likely advance in •rice before the day is over, owing the great demand for them since Yesterday's ball game. Several mer chants, It is understood, have wired orders for carload shipments, realiz ing that they will be needed in order to hold customers. A bean famine 'it this time would cause a civil war, ryiy the, dealers. THE HONESTY OF BASEBALL A sis ft it is greatly to the credit of the \onesty with which the national game —baseball—is conducted that the nore conversant one is with it the •riore certain he is that the world's Tories Is played on the level. It is only the man who does not follow the game except when some such se ries Is played who doubts the genuine ness of the contest. He knows that there is a great deal of money at make and thinks that players are apt *o throw the game In order to stretch out the series and Increase the gate receipts. The fact that the series seldom, if "ver, goes the limit that it has been mottled with five games, one more than was necessary to decide the championship when the first game *.vas a tie, makes no difference to the suspicious mortal who can't see why ball Players won't be crooked when they have a chance. But the enor mous Interest In the contests, the ex citement they stir up in every city, every village, every hamlet in the land is all the evidence needed to prove that they are honorably con ducted. The players participate only in the receipts of the first four games. The winners receive enough more than the losers to make the winning of these four games well worth the best effort. This removes every tempta tion the players have to throw games. As a matter of fact, the baseball rank and file is recruited from a class who are wrapped up in the sport, and every real sportsman knows that the desire to win in a hot contest is the supreme thought in a sportshian's mind.—Philadelphia Times.

MINNESOTA TRAVELING MAN IN BAD SHAPE In an affidavit executed before a Notary in St. Paul a traveling man swears to the following: Had a scrofulous ulcer about two by three inches in size oh the right side of neck over the jugular vein—a dan gerous place. Was treated by many doctors but no benefit. Allen's Ul cerine Salve cured the ulcer in six months. This salve is one of the oldest rem edies in America and since 1869 it has been known as the only salve power ful enough to cure chronic ulcers and old sores of long standing. Allen's Ulcerine Salve acts by draw ing out the poisons and healing the sore from the bottom up. It is so powerful that It heals new cuts and pores in one-third the time that com mon salves and liniments take. And if heals burns and scalds without a •car. *"I*" The Giants won three games of the series played before over a quarter .of a million -people, and- one contest was a tie. The total receipts of the series were $490,833 each of the Red Sox received $4,024, while the Giant? each got 12,5 56. Yesterday's game was one of excite ment and changing emotions for the 17,000 spectators at Fenway park, in the deciding contest. Never was a ball game more tight ly waged, for not until the twilight had fallen upon the tenth inning, was if that Yerkes flashed over the plate with the winning run. Bedient an: Wood pitched for Boston. Mathewst was in the box for the Giants. Score Tied in the Ninth. A nine Inning pitching duel be tween the master slabman of tf Giants, Christy Mathewson, and th stripling Bedient and "Srriokey Jor Woods for the Red Sox found the tv. contenders for the championship hol ers with the same tally. The contc. into the tenth inning and thi Giants chilled the hopes of the Bo. ton crew, scoring a run on a doul into the bleachers by Murray and hit by Merkle to center which Spen! er juggled. Hundreds of fans tore their see cards, jammed their hats down oiv their heads and discontentedly left the grounds, for Mathewson \vu pitching a game that baffled the b:U* man of Boston. Engle led off for the Red Sox ,i the lpst half of the tenth. He ha gone to bat for Joe Wood and thor. was a groan when the Hed Sox pinci hitter sent up a towering fly to left center. Snodgrass moved toward th bleacher seats and waited for the ball to drop. He muffed it and lie fore the ball, was recovered Enirl' was on second base. No one was out and the crowd was in a frenzy of Joy. Hooper tried to sacrifice but Mathew, son foiled him and the best the Re-' Sox right gardener could do was tc fly. to Snodgrass. Christy Passed Yerkes. The Giant pitcher tried to work the corners of the plate for Yerkes. but Yerkes walked on four balls. With Engle on second and Yerkes on first, Speaker came up. The crowit to a man was yelling, when Speaker swung the big bat back and forth watching Mathewson like a hawl The first ball was a curve and inside Speaker popped up a high foul, which Meyers, Merkle and Mathewson went after, but it fell safe on the grountJ. Speaker Knocked In Tying Run. Mathewson started a high fast one and Speaker met It fairly on the lino over Boyle's head. Engle rushed over the plate tying the score. Or. the throw in Yerkes went to third and Speaker dashed to second. New Yor!: infield drew In and Lewis was pur posely passed so a runner could lc forced at the plate on an infield grounder. Then came the finish. Set For Finish. Gardner, with three balls and ore strike, smashed a long fly to Devoro Yerkes set himself at third and dash ed home when the ball dropped in Devore's hands. Indian Meyer, crouched at the plate to take tin throw he expected from Devore. Instantly he caught It Devore whip ped the ball homeward. On came flying Yerkes on came the ball. Mathewson, who saw the throw of the little leftflelder to be wide, threw up his hands and Meyers turned away without try ing for theball. Yerkes did not know the throw was wide, how ever, and plunged headforemost and slid over the plate in a cloud of dust with the run that won the world's championship for the Red Sox. The crowd fairly screamed In a de lerlum. Men threw hats in the air and chcored until they could cheer no more. Hundreds rushed upon the field and gathered about the Red 8o.\ bench and applauded the winning plaj-ers. Mathewson burled hlmsolf in his great coat and walked from the field. Scores of persons followed the pitcher and patted him on the back, congrat ulating him upon hia fine work. McGrauv C'migratiiatcH Stnlil.

"I can't say I'm glad, Jake, "but one of the teams had to win. It was the Red Sox and congratulations are in order." Manager McGraw said, addressing Stahl. A spectator addressed an insulting remark to McGraw as he walked across the diamond. Blows passed but no damage was done. Mathewson and Bedient were called apon to pitch the deciding game and the veteran outpitched his young rival a shade. Wood Gets Credit. Bedient was taken from the mound a permit Hendrickson to bat for him in the seventh. Joe Wood went on toe mound after Bedient. the score :ied at the time. "Smoke.v Joe" gets credit for the game, his third victory in the series. The Giants made the flrkst run in the third when Devore went to first •n balls and later scored on a two base drive by Murray. Bedient employed a high inshoot which ho varied with a sweeping out drop, and after Devore's tally there WHS no more scoring for New York until the tenth. Murray cracked one of Wood's swift ones into the bleach ors for tow bases and scored on Merkle's single to center. These two runs were all the Giants were able to gather. Uae Pinch Hitter. The Red Sox tied the score in -the seventh when Stahl knocked one of Mathewson's fadeaways Into the air and it fell between three fielders Wagner walked to first and all hope for the run seemed gone when Cadv ent up a fly to irietcher for the sec ond out. Henrickson was here called !n to bait for Bedient. the choice of the pinch hitter being the turning point for the Red Sox. Henrickson punched a two base hit past Herzog and Stahl was over the plate with the tying run. The story of the deciding runs in the tenth which brought Bos ton .the second world's championship lias been told. Control Remarkable.
