With their ancient Jonah, "Doc" White, on the slab, the Tigers were a somewhat subdued out fit today and were handily beaten by the White Sox, 5 to 2 being the figures. The game was a rather listless affair, the Sox, who by grabbing this one could get back within striking: dis- tance of the leaders, having about all the pepper that was shown, and then not being as kittenish as they usually are when on the local lot. Too much holiday making namely, hurry-up jumps and double heading appeared to have had its effect on both outfits Apart from some very persistent clouting by Freddie Farent, who got three safeties and narrowly escaped another, it was an absolutely feature- less afternoon. Neither side had had any opportunity for anything spectacu I lar, and going through the game look- ed like doing a day's work, JIMMY THE BELL-CUB.

(Special) The Saturday and Sunday baseball games at Oakland park, between Thompson' Colts, a traveling colored team, and th Oaklands of Lowell resulted in two large Bized victories for the Oaklands. During the two games the Colts got four while the Oaklands covered the home plate with fifteen scores. The locals found easy picking and did not have to use any Jay Eye See bits to break the colts ln at all. They could not run away with anything, not even off the home plate, because Walters, Lowell's third baseman who up to Sat urday was an unknown quantity was in the box and the one, two, three order he sent the colored gentry hack to the bench was a surprise to all.

In terest runs far higher than in the featherweight contest of yesterday. There is just one point where a mat ter of doubt exists this is the condi tion of Gans and the peculiar state of betting affairs. The men who used to get down heavily in the days of the old "fight trust" regime are backing Gans whenever they can get their money covered. But to the time of writing comparatively small sums have been wagered. and drops Ed Yates, the veteran, behind the home plate says were Just the kind that fools them all. And with the fine support given the battery made victory easy. Had the visitors given their battery the same support the game might have been a little different. The Sunday game was also a one sided affair with Walters back to his third base position and Jarvls of Mo- mence, in the box.

(Special)- What will undoubtedly prove to be the most interesting ball game ever pulled off in northern Indiana is scheduled for next Sunday at Oakland park, Low ell, when the fast Laporte team Jour neys there to meet the T907 champions In the second game of the northern Indiana championship series. Baseball matters have simmered down to that point where the championship lies be tween these two teams and the Lowell contingent are determined that their next year's stationery shall read "Champions of Northern Indiana, 1907 8." While manager Wood of the Lowell team is very guarded in taking of his line up for this game enough has been learned that it is safe to say Lowell will go into battle with the best bunch of ball players seen together ln this part of the country for several years. Irwin, the "Invincible," who struck out 12 of the Laporte players in the first game will do slab honors as usual. The infield as well as outfield will see sev eral new faces and to a man up a tree it looks like Lowell will keep up the rec ord they feel so justly proud of and which few teams can boast, viz.: Hav ing won every game played on home grounds this year. There is a great deal of interest taken in this game from all neighboring towns and if the weath er man is on his good behavior It wll! prove a record breaking ball crowd for Lake county.
