Joe Phillips, the pud old man,
who plays outfield lor tine or
four teams hereabouts, remarked
to the writer alter the game last
night, "please pat in yonr paper
that the Owens team has won one
consecntlTe gams"
That Isn't all the old man said.
He was making more noise than a
Big Ben at six in the morning. He
droDDed a ball In left field and
got a line kidding when he got to
the bench. "It la positively beyond
reason how that ball got away trom
me," was his alibL Not had at
that
He wanted to ron the writer and
"Bonos" Wagner a race around the
bases, bat neither one ot as want
ed to be charged with murder (or
making the old man drop dead
trying to keep up with ns speed artists.
Kittle played a good Joke on Joe.
Kittle caught a fly in middle and
Joe yelled to shoot the pin over
his way. Kittle did and almost
took a band oil Uncle Joe.
Speaking ot Kittle, be made several
great catches In center field.
He had five putonts and an bat
two were hard chances. Also made ;
a beantlfnl throw to third and nailed
a man who tried to go trom first
to third, on a single to center.
Uncle Joe says it Umpire Johnson
does not quit giving the_ sport
writers cigars mere worn oe do
fun in the ball games any more.
Phillips beat all records lor the 100
yard dash getting in Irom right
field last Saturday to register a
kick on a decision. He passed himself
once on the way in and bad to
stop a minutO to allow himself to
catch up with himself.
War is surely being fulfilled this
slimmer.
Every day comes a new thrill,
a new "kick," a new speed marvel,
a new record made, a new champion.
Crowd records In baseball are
going up as the season wares on
and the new figures are limited
only by the site of the parks.
People are talking about yacht- i
ing Just like everybody owned one. ,
Yachts will never become as com- 1
mon as flivvers, though, not at the 1
present cost of Shamrocks. 1
Likewise, everyone was glad that
Babe Ruth outdid himself and is '
hanging up a new swat record. I
Why stop at forty, Babe! or fifty !
?or slity?or seventy?or well, go
ahead and sock?
i
More people read the baseball 1
scores than any other branch of 1
modern literature. I
Why, there is so much going on I
In this country now that even Jack I
Johnson could't stay away. 1

Kittle Feature of the
Game.
Despite the efforts of Uncle Joe
Phillips to donate the game to the
Grocers, the Owens Bottles defeated
the Wholesalers 8-2 last evening
In a city league game that was as
lull of thrills and interesting plays
is could be desired. vDncie Joe
really did not try to donate the
game, but he made a costly muff
of a fly in right garden that paved
the war for the only runs the
Grocers got Ferhape he just
iropped the ball to make the game
t little closer.
"Honue" Wagner allowed Kittle
to smell a buttermilk bottle cork
before the game started and consequently
Mr. Kittle was right on
lis toes all the time, and the way
le grabbed seemingly sure hits in
tenterfield would make Max Carey i
rery jealous. It also made Uncle
foe Phillips jealous and he was
'oaring all through the game about
ICittle's work. The center fielder
grabbed two balls right off the
nrf and also captured three other
ong drives. Besides this he threw
i man out at third who tried to
go from first to that station on a
lot single over second. At bat he
node two hits out of three times
ip, which Is a very fair day's work.
One of the featnres of the game
was the base running of Guest. He
slammed the ball against the center
field fence on the first bounce,
hut only made two bases. This
was due IU UJO uuu uc
spilled himself badly passing first
station.
The Bottles' got two runs Is the
3rst frame, after the Grocers had
bees retired with one hit and no
uns. Tressel led off with a single
to center and Mills was swatted
>ver the heart with a pitched ball.
West advanced both rnnners with
l sacrifice Phillips hit to the secind
baseman and was out at first,
Tressel coming home. Hills also
tedded, to make a try for the plate
ind got there when Hapnrst threw
tigh to Horrls.
The Grocers made two runs In
he third. Hartley was thrown ont
jy Tressell. Joe Phillips made a
lensational mutt of P. Hills long
Ty. Byard doubled, bringing in
dills. Thompson fanned, bnt Haymrst
and Currey singled, Byard
roelng home.
An error, singles by West and
3oice and Guest's long douuie
irought three rnns for the Bottles
n their halt of the third sad setled
the game. Byard was knock;d
out of the box before the innng
was orer dad Harold finished
he game.
A single by Boice and a triple

Watson'Downed
Fairiew Team
Last night the ettong Falrvlew
baseball team was defeated by the
fast Watson nine by a score of 7-5
In a very Interesting game featured
by hitting, etrors and good
baseball mixed In. The Falrvlew
team was handicapped by the
strange field and this was the]
came of many of their mlscues.
"Rip" Altaian, who was slated
to pitch for Watson, was late In reporting
for the game and Manager
JoHlno selected Charley Long, the
old Monongah Glass star, to do the
hnrllng which he did In big leagne
style. Falrvlew drew first blood
when they scored three runs In the

rors. Things looked dark for Watson
when In their half of the first
the; smashed ont two hits and
failed to score. After the first
Charley had the Falrriew boys on
his hip allowing just two hits, one
of these was a two base hit which
did no damage for tho Falrriew1
bunch could not hit when a bli'
meant a run. The other came In
the first of the eighth after Stew
art was safe on Belt's error. Mitchell
then lined one ont to left fo.
three sacks and scored a moment
later on a pass ball. Watson camback
Strang in their half of th<second
and scored seven runs on
bits and Falrriew mlscues. Mitch
ell was on the monad for the Fab
view team and pitched a good:
game Small playing center for'
Watson featured the game by seceral
nice running catches. Watson
plays the fast Owens team of the
city leauge on Sunday at the Watson
Held. A great game Is expect-'
ed. Altman or Long will be on the
monad for the Watson team while
Poe will likely pitch for the Botties.
