However after, three runs had been scored by the. visitors, the locals tight ened up and good ball was played dur ing the rest of the game. The locals scored twice in the third and fourth Innings . respectively. The visitors scores came, in the third, fourth and seventh innings,' when one, two and one runs, respectively, 5 were . scored. According to the summary, the locals were outhlt io to 8. but Boyd kept the hits made off him scattered, the six errors by the locals assisting Cincin nati more than the hits. The Royals erred twice.

BATTLING NELSON STILL CHAMP Great Dane Fighter Shows That He Is Still King Of His Class. HYLAND STRIKES COLORS LAD TOUTED TO BE AS STRONG AS GIBRALTAR JUST FOLDED UP LIKE AN ACCORDION IN SCRAP, SATURDAY. (By Tad.) New York, May 31. Battling Nel son, champion of the world. Not changed a bit. Isn't even mussed any; no nicks in it. Still there. Dick Hyland, the whalebone lad who was touted to be as strong as Gibral tar, as rough as the seas and a bear for punishment, folded up like an ac cordion and was carried out of the ring Saturday a sadder and a wiser lad. He was the boy who was to trim the Dane. They said the author was a has-been. They said that if it took him twenty rounds to best poor old Joe Gans, Hyland would get Bat's number in half that time. Was a Good Mill. Hyland did pretty well, at that. He fought the Dane, toe to toe. for twen ty rounds and during that time a pil lowslip might have covered both, without even a hand being stuck out. It was one of those gruelling body blow fights, with punches landing as fast as a gatling gun could turn out pellets. They were wondering whether the Dane is still as good as he was. No one can answer that.. He always did look like a sucker, but he always did cop. He never was a quick finisher, The Hyland fight, going twenty-three rounds, is about the usual route for Nelson. All of his big fights have been about that distance.

Hundreds in the country around Zephyr saved themselves by taking ref uge in storm cellars. Most of the Inhabitants were in bed when the storm swept by and falling timbers crushed them to death.

THE THEATER THEATRICAL CALENDAR. NEW PHILLIPS. All WeekHigh Clas Vaudeville. GENNETT THEATRE. June 1 and 2 Opera, "PrisclHe." The New Phillips. . The towns that the Creation of Pur pura has visited previous to its com ing here are all talking about the production in the lctadest terms. And it is no wonder as the show is one of the most fascinating on the vaudeville stage at the present time. Magic, mysticism,- romance, fantasy, poesy, my thology, science, history and art are all combined in one to make this pro duction worthy of effort and the com bination Is far reaching and success ful. It is the main bill at the New Phillips these three days. , The Semen Duo can rightfully look down on ethers of their kind. But they don't f do - it. They are modest, extreme aooand they have a line of musical comedy. that is as natural and inspiring as the Lorelei. Gus and Marion Kohl are novelty jugglers and they do not fall below the good standard of the New Phillips. At the Arcade. As usual the Arcade has an appro priate picture for a holiday "A War time Sweetheart" is essentially a Dec oration Day film. Incidentally it has the meet thrilling and realistic battle scene yet shown in Richmond's pic ture theaters. The attack on the reb el fort by the tJnion cavalry Is a tre mendous piece of acting, using hun dreds of men and horses. Every de tail is worked out and the spectator sits spellbound at the plunging horses and running men. The G. A. R. veter ans are to be guests of honor at the Arcade Decoration Day afternoon.
