Houston was the oppo nent and although the Mud CnU seemed to be trying to win the lo cals walked awny from them by su perior butting nl critical times. A cnnservalvo estimate places the paid attendance nt thirteen but nobody expected n crowd, as there 'was no In terest In the game, the season having practically closed when Ileauinonl lost its last game to (ialveston four days ago. As' a inuUtf ot.ract it was a pretty good game, much heller than many 4hat!.iave benn.WPU otijtlte Driving Park diamond this season. Tin' scene contained a touch of pathos, also. It was hafd to realize that, the big, silent, bnre, echoing Brand stnnd had 'time ulut inkaJn : contained howl ing, roaring, stamping, perspiring, delighted humanity Hint seemed, for (lie time being, to have gone stark, raving mad in a wild desire to see it favorites win. Yesterday there was no crowd, no enthusiasm, no cheering, nobody but a little hnnd ful of faithful few, who couldn't quite forget the things the Beau mont team had done in the weeks past to give them pleasure. Sentiment on Diamond. Out on (lie diamond the sent I men., of a dying summer also was felt, but there were times when the player:-! jollied up, threw iokos hack and forth at each oilier, kicked ip their heels and appeared delighted that the hard grind of a game every day was nt; last about over. Leaning over the railing from one or two boxes was hero and there an ex piring fan, his face sad, his heart heavy. The end of the season had arrived. Two men were out, two strikes had been called and there were no balls. .Time.tlie great um pire, wan about, to send, fandom to the bench for good and fandom felt sorrv. Down in front of tho grand stand, with arms hanging limply over (he pickets, half a dozen ardent follow ers of the dope watched the con test with dreary eye?. Up in the press bench, which Wyche Crecr had often made unearthly with his yells and which every friend of (lie press lias aspired to nit in whenever op portunity offered, and where little Hliss P. Oorhani, the doughty presi dent of the league, has many and many a time expounded wisdom of the "diamond, the official scorer Fat in lonesome granduer. Reporters Absent. The boys who "did baseball" for the various papers were not in evi dence. They were satisfied to write the report of the last game from a copy of Hie score. Once or twice the telephone bell tinkled weakly and a fan down town, still following in his heart the destinies of the Iteau inont. team, would ask how the game was going. At last it was over. The final out was made.. The players threw their gloves Into the air, emitted yells and squeels. turned flip Hop. grabbed their bats and coats and ran for the cars. The thirteen sad eyed fans sorrowfully turned their backs on the scene' of victory, defeat, hard fought battle, listic encounter, Joy, disappoint nient. but, without, pleas ure, and slowlv wended their way out of the grounds. The season of 1M4 had elided. The ncore: Hca union t ' AH It II O A E Coyle. 2b 4 12 12 1 Hunter, p 5 113 3 0 Thebo, If 5 112 1" Smith, cf 4 0 1 1 1 Everliardt Sb 3 1 0 2 3 1 Morris.
