4 . Chicago, July 18 The 1518 sea
ion's record for long games was es-
'tablished here yesterday afternoon
when the Cubs defeated the Phillies,
2 to 1 ,ln a thrilling contest that ran
twenty-one innings before George
Tyler, the famous Chicago southpaw,
won the verdict over "Mule" Watson,
the Phillies' comparatively unknown
righthander. The game comes with
in one inning of the record perform
ance in the National league.
It was good pinch-hlttlr.g that fi
nally won for the Cubs. In the
twenty-first inning, with darkness ap
proaching, Mitchell sent in Turney
Barber, his Pacific Coast extra out-
' fielder, to hit for Rollie Zeider. Bar-
, her came through with a single and
then Watson had the hard luck to hit
' Klllifer with a pitched ball. With
nobody out and men on first and sec
ond Mitchell staked everything on
putting over the winning run and
had McCabe hit for Tyler, although
Tyler had already made two hits.
McCabe bunted, the Philadelphia in
field got tangled up on the play, and
McCabe was safe on first, filling the
"bases. Then Max Flack, who had
only accounted for four safe hits '. i
the preceding twenty innir.ss .topped
off his day's work with a smashing
liner to left which sent in Barber
with the winning run.

GIANTS WIN AND
LOSE TOJREDLEGS
Cincy Team Takes, First
Game 2-1, But Giants Cap
ture Second by 4-1.
V
Cincinnati, July 18. Although the
Giants outbatted the Beds by 24 hits'
to 16 in two sames yesterday after
noon, scored a total of 5 runs to 3 by
the locals, outfielded them and outran
them on the bases, yet they only won
one of the contests. The Reds took
the first by 2 to 1 and the Giants the
second by 4 to 1.
Failure to bunch their hits explains
the defeat of the Giants in the open
ing game. They collected : 13 solid
thumps off the .delivery of Pete
Schneider, but got only one runner
across the plate. Every time the
Giants got men on bases they either
hit into double plays or else flied out.
The lonesome tally of the Giants in
the fifth was the result more of luck
than hitting. iMcCarty. was favored
with a pass and moved to second on
Perritt's sacrifice. Young came along
with a single to centre and McCarty
scored.
It was in the fifth also that Perritt
had his "one bad Inning and In which
the Reds cantered off with the game.
The Gia fts had chances to score in
the seventh, eighth and ninth frames,
but failed to take advantage of their
opportunities to bat in runs.
Red Causey, who ap.pears to have
developed into the main reliance of
the Giants on the mound, came to the
rescue in the second game and held
the Reds down close and safe.
A double by Groh at the beginning
of the eighth session, followed .by two
outs at first, gave the Reds one run
and saved them from a shut out.
Causey was particularly good; in the
pinches. He refused to be hit safely
when men were on bases.
The Giants hammered a run out of
Horace Eller In the first session.
Burns, who made three two baggers
during the afternoon, started the first
inning of the second game with a two
sacker to right centre. .Young's sac
rfiflce put Bums on third, and he
scored on Fletcher's sacrifice fly to
Griffith. However, Larry Doyle came
along with a single, but was snuffed
out trying to steal second.
The Giants put a padlock on the
game in the sixth when Kariaen
started off with a single. Causey
bunted and beat the throw to first.
Burns also bunted safely and the
sacks were full.
Fletcher forced Young at second,
but Causey scored on the play. Doyle
singled to right, scoring Burns and
putting Fletcher to third. Fletcher
and Doyle puled a double steal and
Fletcher scored. Zim ended the in
ning with an out at first.
RUTH WINS GAME
FOR RED SOX 4-0
TY COBB TO PLAY
WITH COLONIALS
AGAINST MURL1NS
ICORD
FOR SCORELESS
TIE: 25 INNINGS
New Haven, " July 18 It was an
nounced last night that Ty Cobb, pre
mier batsman of the American
league, is to play first base for the
Colonials against the New Haven
Eastern leaguers in the first game of
their series at the Lighthouse Point
grounds Sunday. The news should
bring Joy to the hearts of all lovers
of the national pastime, for the
"Georgia Peach" is just now at the
top of his game, hitting around .370
and leading his nearest competitor in
the American league race by a mar
gin of several points.
It was only a few weeks ago that
Cobb was batting considerably less
than .300, far below his form of past
years, and fans had begun to think
that his star was on the wane. Then
he started a terrific hitting streak,
and each day saw him pass one or
more of the players who stood be
tween him and the top rung of the
ladder, until a few days ago he reach
ed his old position at the top with
many points in the average to spare.
And the end is not yet, for he is
still clouting the ball hard and may
even surpass the .420 average he roll
ed up in 1911.
The fans have surely got to hand
it to George Weiss for bringing to
this city the best baseball talent avail
able, for he has earned for himself i
reputation: of going through with
what he attempts. He has brought
practically every big league club here
at different times in the past few
years, and pitted them against his
famous Colonials, who are now recog
nized as one of the strongest baseball
clubs in the country, and one that
will give even the strongest team in
the majors a hard battle.
Not content with getting the great
Georgian for the coming game, Weiss
also says he will probably pitch Ray
Fisher, which will be another attrac
tion worth going miles to see. Ever
since Fisher pitched that great game
against the White Sox a couple of
Weeks ago fans have been clamoring
for his return, and as Bender has not
yet been : restored to good standing
with the National Commission the
former Yankee twirler will be secur
ed if such a thing is possible.
Besides Holding Opponents
to Four Hits in Second
Game, Red Sox Twirler
Receives Two Doubles.
' Miss Handy a Double
, Winner at Lawn Tennis
New York, July 18 Miss Edith
Handy and Miss Bessie Holden reach
' ed the semi-final round of the
! Women's Eastern New York State
! championship tennis tournament
' which began yesterday on the courts
of the Mount Peasant Club at Pleas-
antville, N. Y. Among the other win-
ners of the afternoon were Miss Marie
Wagner, the present titleholder, and
Mrs. Edward V. Lynch.
Weather condilions were unfavora
ble and fast playing -was almost out
i of the question. Mss Handiy, how
i ever, rklpped lightly over the soggf
turf and executed a number of pretty
: cross court shots in the two matches
that she played. After drawing a bye
i In the first round Miss Handy defeat
ed Miss Caroma Winn in the second
by a score of 6 4, 61.
! Miss Handy's next opponent was
. Mrs. Percy Wilbourn. Miss Handy
, played even better tennis in this
match than against Miss Winn and
won after a bitterly fought battle by
i a score of 7 5, 6 -3. Mrs. Wilbourn
. about held her own -in the early part
! of the "match, but faltered under the
;atacl;.of Miss- Handy as the game
: progressed.
Miss Holden also scored-a -double
victory, as did Miss Wagner and Mrs.
Lynch. Miss Holden defeated Mrs.
Henry Bassford in the second round
at 6 3, 97 and Mrs. A. B. Dun
can in the third in another straight
match by a score of 6 2, 6 2. Miss
Wagner beat Miss Margaret Buckley
!n the first round a-nd Mrs. William
'H. Pritchard in the second,
v The only three set match of the
afternoon was played by Mrs. Lynch
and Mrs. L. G. Morris, the former
'.winning by a score of 6 1, 4 6,
, 2.
Today is the 27th anniversary of
the ball game that made North Da
kota famous.
By reason of that historic contest
the names of Fargo, Grand Forks
and Devil s Lake are known to hun
dreds of thousands who otherwise
would have lived and died in utter
ignorance of the existence of those
cities.
It was a great advertising stunt
that was pulled off on July 18, 1891,
when the Fargo and Grand Forks
teams of the Red River Valley
League played a 25 inning game,
which was scoreless, at Devil's Lake,
N. D. The players who participated
in that pastime, have long since van
ished from baseball ken. and the
league is dead and buried and for
gotten, but the fame of that game
still goes clattering down thee orri
dors of time.
Never again, perhaps, will the fans
lamp such a score as this:
Grand Forks
noo ooo ono ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo o o
Fargo
000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 0 0
The long distance record establish
ed by this contest stood until May 31,
199, when the Bloomington and De
catur, 111., clubs of the Three-I League
played 26 innings at Bloomington, De
catur finally winning with a score of
2 to 1.
The Grand Forks-Fargo clash" still
stands, however, as the longest runless
same in the record book .
Other extraordinary long contests
include the following:
American League, at Boston, 1906,
Philadelphia 4, Boston 1, 24 innings.
Taciflc Coast League, at Sac
ramento, 1 911 Sacramento 1, Port
land 1, 24 innings.

At Boston, 1877, Manchester Pro
fessionals 0, Harvard 0, 24 innings.
Missouri Valley League, at Pitts

National League, at Cincinnati,
1902, Cincinnati 7, Chicago 7, 24 in
nings. ,
National League, at Philadelphia.
1905, Chicago 2, Philadelphia 1, 20

.Boston, July 18 Boston won both
games of the double-header with St.
Louis, the first by a score of 7 to 0,
with Bush having the better of
Wright, and the second by a score of
4 to 0, in five innings, called on ac
count of rain, here yesterday. .
Ruth pitched the second game and
made two doubles in two times at bat.
In the fourth inning of the second
game Schang and Severeld clinched
at the plate; a few blows were ex
changed and both players were or
dered out of the game. Schang
charged that Severeld was unneces
raily rough in tagging him out at the
plate.
Locals Behind When
Rain Stops Game
The Americans were four runs he-
hind .the Planters in the game which
was to have broken the tie between
these respective teams for first place
in tne league race. Sol Sava was
Manager Grimes' pick to hold the lo
cal team on the top rung of the lad
der while. Garry Fortune was Man
ager Flynn's selection.
Sol did not show the form he has
bene in late games as the Planters
took to his offerings in the first in
ning and before he was taken from
the mound the New London plavers
had scored two runs. Aleck Fergu
son then' took the pitching duty and
ne also had two runs scored on him
before he tightened up.
The local team did not start their
part of the tussle until the second in
ning when H. W. Baker hit a one
base drive and reached second on an
error by; Pickup. Yim laid down a
bunt and beat the throw to first.
Burke was at bat when the game was
stopped by the umpire. After waiting
for 30 minutes there was no sign of
the weather clearing so' the game was
called off.
ZBYSZKO AGAIN
OLiN'S MASTER
,
Latter I&ceives Injury Af
ter 30 Minutes Wrestling
and Zbyszko Wins.
Hartford, July 18 A large crowd
turned out last night to witness the
long promised Olin-Zbyszko wrestling
bout at the Grand theatre. Zbyszko
was given the decision after Olin suf
fered a severe hurt after a half hour
of wrestling.
The men took the mat' at 10
minutes of 10. Referee Livingston
announced the rules to govern, the
main point being the barring of the
toe hold and rather surprised tW
house by including the barring of the
strangle. The men then came to
grips and thecrowd settled back for
what looked like a long session, for
Olin showed plainly that he was ab
solutely his equal at every turn of
the game, and the weather being
rather muggy they worked slowly.
Olin was the aggressor most of the
way and clamped two or three head
locks on the champ that visibly an
noyed him. He slipped them, how
ever, and it was, nip and tuck for
many minutes. However, after 33
minutes of wrestling, Olin locked his
arms about Zbyszko's body while hot
were on the floor. Wladek somehow
disengaged his arms and brought
them around so that they were behind
him and formed sort of a back full
Nelson on Olin. Still in that position
he got to his feet carrying Olin with
him and with Olin clear of the floor,
flung him over his head and landed
with his entire weight full on Olirfs
head. The Finnish champion lay
prostrate and it was some minutes
before he could be helped to his
dressing room. It was the most wick
ed fall ever seen in this city, and the
fans had faint hopes that he could
return to the ring. It was announc-
d that ten minutes would be allowed
for his return but at the end of that
time the man was still throwing up
and a doctor said the match could
not . continue. . Zbyszko was there
upon announced the winner of . the
bout. ,
Zbyszko afterwards spoke to the
crowd and thanked them for their
donation to the White Cross .and then
gave a short talk in Polish for the
people of the race that were present.

Pirates Take Third
Straight From Robins
Pittsburgh, July 18 The Pirates
made it three straight victories over
the fluttering Robins yesterday, and
nailed them tighter to the floor of the
cellar by winning, 5 to 4, in 11 in
nings. The man who brought sorrow
to the Brooklyns was no less a man
than George Cutshaw, a Flatbushh
castoff. His single in the eleventh,
with two gone, sent Bigbee across the
rubber with the deciding run.' Brook
lyn's chagrin was all the more acute
because Robertson was ordered to
pass Southworth in order to leave
Cutshaw high and dry in the batter's
box for an easy strike out. Cutshaw,
unusually alert, outguessed Robertson
and met one squarely ; on the seam,
scoring Bigbee from second base when
the ball blazed a way through left
field. It was Cutshaw's third hit of
the game. -

work won for Miss Elaine Rosenthal
and Perry Adair over Miss Alexa
Stirling, the' national champion, and
Bobby Jones in a fourball Red Cross
match at the Montclair Golf Club yes
terday: afternoon. " The first-named
pair won Toy four poihts. That does
not sound much like golf, but it hap
pens to be the way these players
have decided to conduct their exhibi
tions this summer. They count
.point for the best ball and another
for the side with the- lowest aggre
gate. At hole play, Miss Rosenthal

Even if he did play on the losing
side, Jones hat! the satisfaction
making the best score of the four.

came back In 37 for a 76 which was
three strokes better than the figures
credited to Adair.
Miss Rosenthal went round in 83

been competing against each other,
Miss Rosenthal would have beaten the
national champion 2 and 1. The best
ball card of the winning side was 73

commission members awarded title to
Perry to the Boston club. He says
that all rulings of the commission
in such matters have been considered
final and makes no further answer.
Dempsey's Physician Says
Injury to Foot Will Not
Delay His Training.
New York, July 18 It was deflr
nitely decided yesterday at a meeting
between the managers of Fred Fulton
and Jack Dempsey that the pair
would meet at Harrison Field, Harri- .
son, N. J., on Saturday afternoon,
July 27. The bout wilf be held under
the direction of the Hudson County
Sportsman's Club of Harrison, of

would be possible to hold the bout on
the day first selected, owing to the
injury to Dempsey's ankle. The big
fellow turned his left foot in training
for the bout that he was to havs
fought with Billy Miske at Madison
Square Garden Tuesday night. Dr.
James Thompson examined the ankle
yesterday and told Dempsey that he
would be able to resume training by
Saturday next.
On this assurance Dempsey's man
ager, Jack Kearns, agreed on July 27
as the day. Fulton will arrive In New
York today and after a preliminary
workout at Billy Grupp's gymnasium
he will repair to Douglaston Inn on
Long Island to finish his conditioning..

Fislic History
Just sixty years ago today, July 18,
1853, John Morrissey and John. C.
Heenan met and signed articles to
light for the championship of Amer
ica and $500. Great interest attach
ed to this match, not only because the
title was involved, but because both
Heenan and Morrissey were reared In
Troy, N. Y., and were leaders of rivaj
gangs in their boyhood. Heenan
left Troy to go to California in 1850,
and there he was employed in the
shops of a steamship company at
Benlcla, thus gaining his sobriquet
of "Benicia Boy." Heenan did his
first boxing on the Pacific Coast and
fared so well that his friends urged
him to return to the East and fight
for the title. The Morrissey-Heenan
battle was pulled off at Long Point,
Canada, and Heenan had all the best
of it until he broke one of his hands
by striking it against a post. After
that Morrissey gained the upper hand
and won in 21 minutes. Heenan
challenged Morrisey to a return bat
tie, but the latter refused, and in 1860
Heenan went to England to fight Tom
Sayers for the world's title a battle
which ended In a row with both men
claiming the victory.
