Scoring 30 runs in the two games
Labor flay was evidently pretty
strong going fur the home team, fur
in yesterday's game with Hugh Nicol's
aggregation they didn't reach the
home plate once, but had to be satis
lied with third base..
"Rusty" Owens, with "the smile
that won't come off," was on the
firing line for Rockford and1 pitched a
steady game, keeping his hits well
scattered. "Jiggs" Arthur served the
benders for the locals and only allow
ed five hits, pitching that would win
an ordinary game, but the home team
couldn't hit Owens consecutively.
The diamond was wet around first
ami third, which undoubtedly cost us
a run in the fourth when Vandine led
off with a pretty hit to deep right.
In tinning first he fell to ltis knees
and Rockwell heldl him at second.
After Lister and Latimer had gone
out Dickey singled and Van could
have scored, but slipped atrain round
ing third where he died, Hickey going
out at second. Again in the sixth
Lister hit after Iatimer had gone out.
Dickey tlcw to O'Brien, but Hickey
singled putting Lister on third. Ar
thur hit one down past third which
hit fair inside and afterwards bound1
ed out. The "limps" said foul and Ar
thur tried again but went out to Hess
to .Meek.. That is as close as we ever
got to the home plate.
ViHitors SSeore la First.
Rockford tallied one in the firsf.
Pnttison hit one for two sacks and
Stark sacrificed him to third1. Meek
hit to Lister, who threw him out,
holding Pattisou on the third bag.
Hess managed to get hit and when lie
started to steal Latimer threw to
Hickey who returned the ball to get
Pattisou at home, but the throw was
too high. Hi the third Rockford scored
twice. Stark singled- and Meek sacri
ficed him to second. Hess smashed
one for two bases scoring Stark. Mid
dleton' picked out a single and Hess
trotted home. O'Brien hit to Hickey
who threw to force Middleton, but
Lister dropped the ball and both were
safe. Shour then hit past second but
the ball struck O'Brien and bounded
to right field, (iraham picked it tip
and sent it home catching Middleton
at the plate and retiring the side. The
tabulated score will give the rest:

Notes of tlin Diamond.'
""" There was no game here today, wat
grounds preventing. If the diamond
is;in' condition tomorrow there are to
be two games, played, the first begin
ning: at 2 o'clock,
There was further improvement in
the condition of "Walter Cruin today.
He is rapidly recovering from " the
state of unconsciousness in which he
has lieen since hit by a pitched ball,
and today for the first time was able
to discus the accident.
Pitcher. Amos Scott is to be given a
ehaiieeUwIth the Pittsburg National
league team at the conclusion of the
Central league season.
The' Dubuque Times is knHkin'g on
Charlie Buelow and wishes old Joe Io
beck engaged as 'manager for next
season. Lobeck is all right in his
liead, but is pretty nearly all in else
where. ' Of the fifty pitchers used by the
American league this reason only six
have escaped being takfn out of the
box. and of the six, only four have
been pitching all season. Two of the
four are Moore and .loss, of the Blues,
while the others are Kitson and Dono
van, of Detroit.
There 'life " two ' ties in the percent
age column as a. result ef yesterday's
games, Decatur and Davenport for
second place, and Cedar Rapids ami
Rockford for fifth place.
A few victories have again cheered
up the Davenport fans, and they have
gotten tip courage sutlieiently to talk
of raising another purse on condition
thaf their team take's two out. of the
forthcoming series with Rock Island.
In view of the acknowledgment
from Bloomington that the two .Mon
day games were handed to Davenport,
it is. difficult to conceive to whom
Hloomington sought to be more un
friendlyRock Island or Decatur
unless it be that the act was prompt

While the comedy, "Two Merry
Tramps,' as presented by Wood
Ward's company, has been pronounc
ed a bright satire by the press
throughout the country during the
past two years, the play in itself is of
minor importance, the specialties and
musical . numbers ' introduced almost
continuously during the 'action of the
comedy being the features that have
placed this organization at the head
of its class. Some twenty pleasing,
tuneful anil novel specialties are giv
;mi. among the most noted licing the
"Holm Two-Step' 'by Wood and Wan I
and the Mnrray twin sisters. "Tell ls.
Pretty Ladies." as sung in "Florado
ra;" "My Blushing Rosie." with cho
rus by entire company; "The Big De
tective," a musical satire on Sherlock
Holmes; the Bowery quartet in "The
East Side Belle;" the Indian opera and
numerous individual specialties. The
abundance of bright and pretty cos
tumes, dashy, tuneful music, and
scenery, make the production of the
"Two Merry Tramps" so closely re
semble an elaborate extravaganza
that theatregoers scarcely realize
that they are witnessing a farce com
edy, it being so different from the or
dinary play of its class. The com
pany appears here tomorrow evening.
The "tramp" play with the knight
of the road as the central figure will
always retain a place in the hearts of
the masses. The American public is
sympathetic and they are always
ready to listen to the story of the
unfortunate, and this peculiar class
of ne'er-do-well nomads amuse and at
the same time appeal to them. Of
the numerous plays of this kind none
has 'achieved greater success than El
mer Walters' big scenic production.
"A Thoroughbred Tramp." and cer
tainly none deserved it more, for the
attraction stands without a rival in
i4s class. A play abounding with
brilliant "comedy situations and
breath-holding dramatic climaxes, in
cluding the escape of the tramp on
the baggage car and the race between
a woman on horseback and a fast Hy
ing express train, mounted with a
most scenic equipment, is well calcu
lated to make a brilliant success in
these days, when the country is filled
with mediocre attractions and im
properly prod-ueed plays. The play is
here next Sunday .
Thomas W. Ross, who plays the
title role in "Checkers," and has just
signed a contract for 10 years with
Kirke La Shelle to star under the hit
ter's management, considers himself
a Pittsburger, although it is not his
native city. He played juvenile parts
in the Grand Opera House Stock com
pany there for several years, and was
immensely popular. Charles M.
Schwab was one of his particular ad
mirers. It is commonly reported in
Pittsburg that Ross might have had a
position with the United States Steel
corporation with a - good salary-hail
he cared for it. But the young man
likes the stage, and declined the steel
