The Indian started toward third, and Wagnci who took Cady's throw, shot it t Gardner. The latter dropped It and the chief slid Into the bag safe. Fletcher In the meantime had dashed to second. In tho play at third Gardner slightly hurt his hand. Despite the mlsplay ncoient cpt hln head and Mnthewson ended tho Inning by flying out to Speaker, leaving two New York runners on the bags, FIRST PASS IN 20 INNINGS. In the Red Sox second InnlnK Mathew kon spoiled his perfect record for control by giving Gardner a base on balls. He had pitched 20 Innings without giving a pass In the series up to that time. Stan forced Gardner at Becond, Doyle to Fletchor. Wagner smashed a single to left field and Utah! advanced to second. With two men on the bases and one out, all the New Tork pitchers began warming tip, but their work was unnecessary aa Cady itnt a high fly to Mcrkle and lie dlent Mt th first bn.ll pitched and waa out t ftret, Doyle to Merttle. The Giants broke Into the run column to the third Inning. Deyore waited and received a naaa. Doyle -went out, Gardner to 0tahl, Deror taking second. Bnodgra flsovnded cat to fltahl, unaastated and tfwron prlatad to third. Play waa mis pmfaA moment until Manager MoQraw had ffeilahod a little tailoring, patching up a bore In Devore'a trousers with a pin, while a world of baseball en thaalMta waited breathlessly to 1mm whether Deror would finally score. Then up oaace "Red" Murray, who smashed tercaflo djtra to left center field. Tho peedy Speaker waa off at the crack of .the bat and after a hard sprint waa Just able to touch the ball with his fingers. Dor ore trotted home with the first run and Murray was oil aecond base when the ban waa returned to the hilled. Merkle ended the inning by grounding out, "Wag ner to BtatO. The American League champions went out In order in their half of the third and were then behind New York with the innioga ern. Hooper sent a weak groander to Doyle, who tossed him out at flrat Terltea chopped a grounder at aBithewaon and was also thrown out Speaker struck oat. HBRZOG DIES ON THIRD. Herzog began the Giants' fourth Inning aiurolclouuly wfth a slashing drive to left field that rolled up the "alloy" be tween two stand in left field. He made a great slide Into third baae before the ball could be returned but be was sent back to second on a ground rule which allowed but two bases. Herzog took third on Meyers" sacrifice, the Indian going out, Gardner to Stahl. With Herzog on third there was a nervous tension among the fans as Fletcher tried to score his team mate, but the best he could do was .o lift a high fly to Gardner. Mathewson ralseo a long ny to iiooper ana tn Inning wsa over. Hut three men faced Matty In the fourth Inning. Lewis waa an easy out, Fletcher to Merkle. Gardner hit to deep center field, and when he saw Snodgrass could not hold the ball after a alird run th Red Sox player tried to stretch his hit into a three-bagger, but was thrown out on a quick return of the ball, Snodgras to Doyle to Herzog. "Hard luck" shouted Red Sox rooters as Boston's thlrd-sacker brushed the dirt off his trousers and walked to the bench Stahl struck out. The fifth inning brought more ezcdte ment but no score. Devore led off for New York with an Infield hit that was deflected when It hit Bedlent on the leg, but the tittle New Yorker was out when Cady flajrgad him trying to steal. Wag ,.ier taking the throw, GREATEST CATCH OF SERIES. The greatest outfield catch of the series waa then made by Hooper, who caught Doyle'e tag drive against the fence In deep right field. Ha made a desperate run for the ball and reached It Just as It ww going ever the three-foot barrier into the crowd for a home run. Snodgrass lined a single to oenter and was left on first when Murray put up a high foul fly to Cady. There waa no cheering among the Red Box rooter in Boston's half of the fifth Inting, aa only three batters faced the muudcrful Mathewson, the side going out on three pitched balls. Murray backed out to the left field fence to get Wagner's fly, and he came running In and easily caught Cody's, line drive. Bedlent was the third out, hitting the first ball pitch ed Devore. For New Tork In th sixth Inning, Mer kle put up a fly to Hooper. Herzog rounded to Wagner, whose poor throw was neatly picked up by "Jake" Stahl and the runner was out. Meyers received a base on balls, and wax left on first base when Fletcher struck out. The game waa more than half over and the Bed Sox rooters frantically Shouted for run. Hooper sent up a pop fly to Merkle and the drooping spirits of the Red Sox crowd were revived when Stakes got a lucky single back of second pose, lie tried to pull away from the ball and In doing so his bat struck It. Neither Snodgrass nor Doyle apparently saw the ball, as neither of them started after It until too late. Speaker was given base on balls and was forced at second iy Lewis, Fletcher making the out, and Ycrkes taking third. OLD TRICK CATCHES VERKES. Here a conference was held by Muthew ion, Meyers, Doyle, Herzog and Merkle Hid the result of It was the old trick of the catcher shooting tho ball to thu pitcher on an attempted double steal. Mathewson pitched a wide ball to Gardner nd Lewis and Yerkes fell Into tho trap. Lewis made a dash for second and Yerkeu thinking Meyers was going to throw the ball to the middle bag started to leave third. Tho Indian, however, shot tho ball to Mathewson, who snapped It to Herzog and Yerkes wan caught trying to return to third base. Mathewson, the Giants' lint batter up In the seventh Inning, sent up a high foul and Stahl muffed It, costing him an error, Mathowson then singled to centur tnd was forced at second when Devora tried to sacrifice, Bedlent getting the bunt and tossing It to Wagner. Doyle filed to Wagner. Devore stole second BnodgrusH ended tho Inning by ground tag out, Gardner to Btaiil, The Red Sox opened the soventh In vhlch they tied tho scoro by Gardner lying out to Snodgrns., Stahl planted thu all In left field for a single, Murray nodgraas and Fletcher bulking each other In trying to get the fly. The Sox malinger moved down to second when Wagner was given u base on balls. It was up to Cady to do something, but tho home rooterjt groaned when he popped a fly Into the walling hands of Fletcher. 1 1 ..m'llf Mnti . tin ttltnr for lludlelit. let a couple uf lulls go by him, and then hu opened his shouldeis on the next pitch and slummed the ball down the left Held Iwisu line for two bases, and Stahl eomo homo with tho tying run amid great ex citement. Wngner took third on the play. Hooper tried hard to bring Wagner homo but lie Hied out to Snodgrass. WOOD GOES IN TO PITCH. "Smoky Joe" Wood was given a royal reception when ho went Into the pitching box for Boston In the eighth Inning. Mur ray rolled out to Stahl, unassisted, and Merkle was out, Yerkes to Stahl. Herzog not the first hit off "Smoky Joe" when he singled to right. Meyers ended the In ning by grounding out, Yerkes to Stahl. Huston's burly hitters came up In the second half of the eighth but they wore unable to bring home the odd run. Yerkes dropped a grounder III front of Mattowson which the New York pitcher deflected nnd Herzog scooped up the ball and got the Red Sox runner at llrst. Speaker was tho second out, Doyle to Merkle, and Lewis ended thu Inning by grounding out, letchcr to Mcrkle. When the ninth Inning began McGraw decided to send In his best pinch hlttor, McCormlck, to bat for Fletcher, but ho filed out on the first ball pitched to Lewis. Malty struck out. Devore waited and was rewarded with n base on balls. Doyle nally picked one- to suit him and ground ed out, Yerkes to Stahl, ending the Inning.

Election of su preme court Judge, superior Judges, uperlntendent of education, serjeant- at-arms, adjutant and lnspector-i;en- ral, Judfe advocate-general, trustees of tho University of Vermont and a commissioner of weights and measures will be made by a Joint assembly to he held Thursday afternoon at 2:30. The duy of these elections Is tlxed by statute. It is expected that there will be a re-election In every case, and without opposition except In the case of Ma son h. Mone, State superintendent of education. It Is understood that Harry J. Stunnard of Hurton will bo put for ward as the opposition candidate, and opponents of Mr. Stone have been ac tively canvassing among the members for two days, seeking support for Mr. Ktsnnard. This is the first time since his sec ond Incumbency of his present office that a candidate has been presented against .Mr. Stone. The chief argu ment of hln opponent Is that Mr. Stone Is opposed to the present normal schools and that he takes too large an Interest in politics. Mr. Stones supporters point to the Mrong efforts he has made to raise the btandard of education In Vermont, nnd the Improvement of literacy under his administration as evidences of his effi ciency. They also point out that h has been the ilrm friend of the rural schools and has ln-nt his energies to Improving their status, and toward making them more responsive to the needs of the com munities lu which they are situated. The opposition does not appear to nc making great headway, nnd Is likely to have Its strongest support In Windsor and Orleans counties. It had been expected previous to the opening of the n,.n.son that some new candidate for serge.int-at-arms might be brought forward, as Frank T. Parsons, the present Incumbent, Is an appolnteellll lug out an unexpired term instead of a regularly elected official. Hut the evi dences of his efficiency have been so plainly seen by the members since their arrival here, and so many Improvements have been made In conditions about the Stato Housu that no one has had the temerity tn propose any other candidate for the position.

AT ARMAGEDDON. Twas after all the work that he had done To cleanse the temple und to put away The Idols that he met his fatal day There at Mcglddo by Esdraelon. Twas there to try tho power of Babylon The king of Egypt hastened his array Euphratesward "Not thine Is this affray! Depart, thou king of Judah. Meddler, shun A conflict not thine own." Alas the zeal For battle flamed alike li. face nnd brain. God, speaking there through Necho'a Hps, he scorned; Nor dreamed of error, till the archer's steel Had pierced him. Then his servants' tearful train Bore him to burial; and nil Judah mourned. -John Elliot Bowman, In SprlnHleld Re publican. North Hyde Park, Vt, FOUNTAIN V12SS AT FIIKI3 PH12S3.
