Take Second of Cooteeta Foiled Off at
Twelfth Htreet I'ark
The deciding game between the
fats and the leans yesterday afternoon
was closely played, the former win
ning by a score of 14 to 13. Very
few attended the game, a fact to be
deplored, as the day was an ideal one
for such an occasion. W. B. Mela
tyre was in the game, and he an
nounced that the fats would be just
though the heavens fell, and he also
stated, in the third inning, when Sam
Dart, of the leans, was pitching low
balls, that the fats preferred "high
ball i." The game was remarkably
well done, few errors being made and
no less than 15 strike outs being re
corded, 10 of which are accredited to
the fats. 1L D. Folsom. while trying
to stretch a base hit into a 2-bagger,
in the second inning, strained a chord
in his ankle and had to retire T. F.

game, was there with the goods sgain
yesterday. Schneider's hitting was

The lack of head work at critical
points was due in a mcasuro to the
absence ol Lull Liange, wnose inneid
work years ago with the Bald Knob

BUFFALO BILL'S SHOW
IS COMING THIS WEEK
Differing, as it does, in all other re
spects from other exhibitions, Buffa
lo Bill's Wild West stands as a living
monument of historic magniliesnce.
Its distinctive feature lies in its
sense of realism, bold dash and reck
less abandon. It is not a "ho" in
any sense of the word. On the other
hand, it is an original, genuine aad
instructive object lesson, in which the
participants repeat the heroic part
they have played in actual life on the
plans, in the wilderness and in the
mountain vastnesses. So many new
and thrilling features have been add
ed this year that it is impossible to
enumerate them all, but probably the
most interesting Is a vivid reproduc
tion of the battle of Tien Tsia and the
relief of Pekln. Then, there are also
