WITH THE BLUE SOX.
The "Walk-Over" Series Number Ob e BY SKID WA1DKI.L. Head's advent as manager of the Blue Sox has brought about many changes for the best iu the regular turn-out of the clan. The entrance of Hale and Briggs into the first game of the Dyer "Walk-Over" series had the knack of showing the near-leaguers up in very good order. Owing to the fact that Hale had been off duty in balldora for a considerable time and totally exclud ja from practice for the same epoch, he did weak hitting during the first in nings of Saturday's melee, butsoon came into his own again and won the battle at the very last moment. The conclud- ing count was 5 and 0, which tells its own story of the spirit-stirring contest. The "Walk-Over" Series No. 2. A no-hit game up to the sixth and an average of a hit an inning for the re maining three innings was Allen's twirl ing record in the second coutest of this series. The newcomers were Crockett, Hallam and Johnson, and exhibited a very healthy deal of work at the try out. Tho long-standing rep of Crock ett as a first baseman has never waned and the result is that he is freeing him self of kinks rapidly and approaching the perfect day at tho same rate. The total number of runs hooked in this contest was eight, all but two of them being credited to the Blue Sox. The "Walk-Over" Series No 3. This game was pulled off on Tuesday and brought the series to an end. Dur ing the three times on the sward of Sunny Dell the "Walk-Overs" never once faltered or turned back in the pace towards the soup-trough, and once more capped the climax by another ignomin ous failure. The count was 6 and 11, with the lesser toward the chaps from Dyer Station, giving the Blue Sox a grand total of 25 runs to their oppo nents 13. The arm-spinning in this last set-to was done by 1'igue, a fresh Blue Sox delegate, who migrated to the clan with the startling rep of having pitched versus them and carried away a game. He appeared in systematic trim, however, and made use of a bundle of very effective ones from his repertoire of benders, giving the foe their surpl Non-Resident Public F. J. Smith, administrator of Hovis, deceased, vs. r In the Cl 111 wjjo of six connections according to the say so of the grandstand. : Some Dope on Plays and Flayers. Allen severed his connection as cap tain of the Blue Sox soon after the set to hi the game with the Tabaso Kids from just over the State line, when a thick and slab hoo-doo spell seemed in all probability to have settled down upon the home clan. The boys from over the Border struck Sunny Dell on one of the chill days of the U. C. B. S., and with both this fact and their ability com bined proceeded to mop dry. The melee comprised Allen's second chance at Ful ton and went by with an identical result.
