Affairs of the Sporting World (By Tort.) Having shoved our Delaware eoun ty neighbors gently into the cellar "Wednesday, the Quakers yesterday in a double headed bill, fired with the ambition of closing in with the lead era, carelessly kicked Mr. Bairn" b Glass Blowers into the ash pit, which is two or three feet below the sur face of the cellar floor. The first game was an eleven inn ing struggle which for a time looked like a Quaker defeat. The second game only went five and a half inn ings and was a walkaway for the lo cals. In the first game Hay and Fleming were the opposing mound workers. Muncie rasped Fleming hard in the second stanza pounding in one run. The Quakers went with out a tally up to the seventh, when Hay weakened and permitted our de mons to pound in the tieing count. In the eleventh Hay boarded his aero plane and amidst the accompanying fireworks display the winning run came in. In the second inning, Gillis led off with a screaming three-bagger. Hall struekout and Burns atempted a sac rifice by flying to Hurst. The red topped outfielder, however, rendered this effort null nnd void by holding Gillis tight to the third corner by a beautiful heave to Jessup. Jonas Bambaugh then did the unexpected by lacing out a hit, bringing Gillis home. Beck singled but was retired at sec ond on Hay's fielders' choice. After this inning Fleming only allowed Muncie three widely scattered hits. In the seventh the locals came out of the hypnotic spell Hay had cast, ov er them and from that time on they made the underhand wonder cast long ing glances in the direction of the bench. Bauman led off in the seventh with a beautiful three bagger, and Hurst brought him home on a single. Pierce sent Hurst to second on a peach of a sacrifice and Bambaugh singled. In attempting a double steal Hurst was rundown between third and home. Jessup went out second to first. In the eleventh Hay passed the first man up, Parker. Bauman sacri ficed him to second then Hay hit. Hurst in the slats. The ever reliable, pinch-hitting Pierce came to bat and did just what the crowd begged him to do smashed a single to right and the game was over. The score and sum mary follqws: (By Tort.) The Quakers left this morning on an invasion of Huntington. The locals are now going at top speed while Hunt ington has been hitting the bumps at the present writing, is just one game ahead of Richmond. It is expected that the locals will take at least one or two games from Huntington. Aft er Sunday the Quakers return home to rest up over Monday, when they leave for Muncie. where a three games se ries is played. Next Friday is also an off day ia the schedule. Next Satur day, I)ec.oration-I)ay, the locals open here with Huntington. This will be the first appearance of the Huntington tri.be at Athletic park this season. One j came will be played in the morning! and one in the afternoon. Sunday, Huntington will play its third game here. Yesterday the largest week day crowd of the season witnessed the bar gain bill. About three hundred fans were present. If the local manage ment can he assured of an average week day attendance of '.', and an av erage Sunday attendance of 1 ,.", they will have no kick to register. Shinn had a busy day yesterday. In the two games the little fellow had eight chances, several of them difficult but as usual he took care of all of them without a wabble. Six putouts were made by Shinn in the first game. Hurst and Pierce took care of their gardens in the usual classy manner. Is there a team in the league that has that outfield beat? I'mps Moore is positively the worst ever perpetrated on a local public. So rank was his work that both teams were continually ragging with him. At one time Burns, the Muncie second Parker and promptly stole second base. Bauman counted Shinn and Jessup on a sharp single. Bauman was caught stealing and Hurst flew out. The summary follows: THROWS OPEN PALACE DOORS TO THE PUBLIC. baseman, made a legitimate putout at second, but Moore called the runner 1 safe. Burns entered a loud protest J and Moore, according to Burns, stat- J ed that "he would like to hand Mun- cie a couple of runs, but he couldn't i call the runner safe." To have a man on the umpire staff who would make such a statement as that is a burn ing disgrace. May Moore never be in flicted upon us again. i Ohio state league teams are already ! beginning to tamper with I.-O. league j players and it is extremely tinfortu- j nate that President Gamble has been j unable to induce Secretary Farrell of j the National Association of Minor i Leagues, to grant the I.-O. league pro-j tection. If necessary, some one should j be sent to confer with Farrell. If prompt action i:s not taken there will be a wholesale raid made on this league. It was a treat for sore eyes to see Jessup run liases for Parker in The second game. The little manager pilfered three bags by hair-raising slides. Pitcher Brown, of the locals, accept ed the terms offered him by the Ma rion. Ohio state league club, but later derided to remain with the locals. This will be pleasing news to the local fans a-s Brown is a great favorite here. Manager Jessup yesterday released Burns, the big southpaw, who started in the season at first base. Burns failed to do any execution with the bat and consequently there was no room for him on the team. Mason will pitch the opening game at Huntington today. Saturday Brown will work and on Sunday Fleming will probably be called into service. Are smith will probably work in the open ing game at Muncie next Tuesday. Jf : H F '4 ' ' ft&S , 7a P Richmond.

ADVENTUROUS DISPOSITION His Grace, the Duke of Marlborough, has decided to open the historic Blen heim Palace to the public on two days a week. KROMA IS GIVEN FINE IN COURT Accused of Inflicting Injuries With Beer Pitcher. Richard Cannon, a nephew of "Un cle Joe" Cannon, speaker of the t:a tional house of representatives, and well known in Richmond, will make an attempt to sail in a balloon from Springfield. 111., to the Atlantic coast. This attempt was to have been made yesterday, but owing to a heavy rain storm which came up just as the bal loon was about to make its ascent, it was decided to postpone the trip un til the weather conditions were more favorable. It is probaMe that the at tempt will be made today. Mr. Cannon has for the past three or four years been an enthusiastic au tomohilist. Nearly every summer he has motored from his home in Dan ville. 111., to Richmond. spending considerable time here visiting numer ous friends. The balloon in which Mr. Cannon will make his long flight is in charge of C. A. Coey, an experienced aero naut. Besides Cannon and Coey there will he two other passengers, one a re porter for a Chicago paper. It is stat ed that Mr. Cannon Is now as enthusi astic over ballooning as he formerly was about motoring. His friends here state that anything of an adventurous natiure never fails to appeal to Mr. Cannon. They state that he is absolutely devoid of fear and takes to danger like a duck to wa ter. He is one of the most accom plished automobilists in this part of the country.

Upon his plea of guilty to the charge of assault and battery. Charles Kroma was fined and costs in circuit court this morniing. The fine was stayed. Kroma has spent one month in jail awaiting trial. On April 23, Kroma and Charles Long became involved in a controversy at Long's rooms on Main street between Fourth and Fifth streets. Words were exchanged and in the fight that followed, Kroma struck Ixng in the face with a pitcher that had contained beer. Long's chin was laid open to the bone. Kroma's sentence was made light by the court because of the time he has spent in jail awaiting trial. A few years ago Kroma was arrested fre quently, but within the past two years he has not. been arrested except for the offense against Long. He has endeavored to lead an upright life and avoid trouble. Tlie Twlllht Of l,Ife.

A west side woman who wished to entertain a great deal one day won dered why h.er guests always seemed so uncomfortable. "It Is because of your clocks," said a candid friend. "There are three within bearing distance of your draw ing room that strike. 1 don't know of anything that makes company feel quite so uncomfortable as to hear a clock strike. Somehow It Is bound to fflve the Impression that we haTe out stayed our welcome and the hostess Is anxious to get rid of us. Of course that is purely a matter of fancy, yet somehow a striking clock always "seems to ay, 'You'd better be going.' The wUe hostess knows that and if she wants her callers to be thoroughly comfortable she shuns a clock that strikes." New York Times.
