I'loomingtoii al Springtield No one will dispute that Frank Don nelly has got together a fast baseball team to represent Springfield this sea son. He is paying the fancy salariei of the league. But he has not been able to aecure men who are infalli ble on the proposition of erring. They hare their had days ju-t like their seven little brother clubs in the circuit. Yesterday was one of them. It all happened in the seventh inning. The Politicians were having a walkawax until that period in the game. Then eame the rattles, with a mixture of rowdyism injected by Tacks Latimer, the eccentric backstop who wore a Bock Island uniform for a short while last year. Tacks is known to hare at end every trick known to tin Tame. Especially if it is bin wits national a rowdj ri.-k. One that he has worked until Se has incurred the displeasure o pvrn tjie home fans in every cit thai 'ie i:s played - ami Tacks has been in the game these many years, with a witch at least twice each season is- the tripping of a base runner. He tried it yesterday, but the umpire infjrht him at it. Smith was on third short mil when and the Corkhili hit to hitter was beaten to the Hr was fenced between thf plate. liases and easily would have been rotten. Hut Ijitimer could not pass ip tin- opportunity to practice his famous trick. He had pegged the hall to Hankev. and as he did so smith dashed toward him. Latimer sidestepped and threw his foot out to trip Smith. He caught Smith so 'hat he almost took a header. Umpire Milan allowed Smith to score, as the penalty imposed on Springfield for the tactics of Latimer. Springfield hollowed, and so ilid the crowd. Lati mer slammed the ball down into the diamond in the direction of the um pire, and Milan took a five-spot out of his salary cheek. Only t our lilt Oil Hrlttseo. It was not Rock island's game at any stage. Only four hits were gath ered from Brittsen, whose delivery was beautiful. The wonder is the miserable support that he received did not have a more serious effect on him. Hagerman was pounded bard. Thir teen hits, one a home run. were made oft" him. The first seore for the visitors came in the second. Ncal. the shortstop, brought it with one of the longest hits that has ever Ihmmi made on the local grounds, scaling the center field fence. Neal who is not counted a hard hitter, had his breath so taken away at the accident that he eould scarcely start around the bases. In the third hits by Lippert, CafTryn and Hankey. and a pass to Donnelly produced a couple m re. single by Wright and a tWo-sacker by Latimer were bunched in the fifth, but without results. The fourth score was iluc to n corkscrew that took a different shoot than Hagerman in-j There Ss no Substitute for in AKlN3 POWDER Absolutely Pure a Matter of Health if it tended it should and rapped Hankey between the lunch room and the neck- . r T I M a a, . we. iic piiierea. ant! mace the re mainder of the way on singles by I.at imer an!

Van had connected for one base, stole second and went on to third while Donnelh was finishing Miller's fly in center, and eame the rest of the way when Lat- imer tired to second to head off Smith, who had been given transpor tation. In the fatal seventh all the trouble occurred after Miller had been re tired on a fly to Donnelly. Corkhili drove easy to Brittsen. The pitcher apparently was nervous, for he fussed with the ball like a baby playine witl a bundle of yarn in the front parlor Smith and flag! rman followed with hits. Thornton drew his hute on a fielder's choice while the infield was endeavoring to hedge in Smith be tween third and home. Donahue rolled to his reilhaired friend on first and the latter made one of the rank est messes of the game, l.ally flied to ripht.

Hut one was down, the sore was fi and ". and Bhrfght was on thin base, having gotten there on a corking hit for three bases in Latly's garden. Neal, already with two hits to his credit, was on the scratch, and con nected once more, but was robbed of it on a sensational one-handed catch by Miller, who jumped in the air at least three fret and speared the ball with his left hook. The home team was playing steady ball under the eiicoui aging coaching of Donahue from the first base corner. Brittsen could not drive the sphere out of the dia mond. And that was the finish of about as ragged an exhibition of the national game as has been offered al the Kock Island grounos this year. The score: ROCK ISLAND. Thornton, cf . .

A fisherman, whose home is in tiales burg, and whose name could not bt learned, was angling in the Sylvan water, about 2()0 feet from the ('.. K. L V: P. bridge abutment yesterday af temoon, when he pulled his line front the water and thereon was a bunch of human hair, or what the fisherman thought was woman's hair. No in vestigation has been made into the matter by the authorities. The man says that he ha I thrown 'lis line out into the water about thir ty f et from the shore. In attempting to liitll the line out of the water he noticed that it was tightening.

He took the ghastly find from his hook and again threw his line Into the water. Again he pulled out the same kind of material. He notified Quart! Green Bt the viaduct, who telephoned the police. Br some who work in the neijrhbor- hood of where the find was made Ihe story Is girCH no credence. Others think that instead of being a bunch of hair caught on the fisherman's hook it was a part of a decayed hemp rope. There are still others who think that it may be that some murder has been committed, and in order 1 hide the crime the murderer has weighted the body to prevent its rising to the sur fa t. to decide it and Hall's home run was tin feature.

DUST FROM DIAMOND. Donnelly still pulls the grass, ("orkhill was easy for Brittsen fan- ning twice. It was certainly Memorial day for Springfield. Hagerman and Brittsen were even on both strikeouts and passes. The Colts hail four stolen bases, rhey showed much improvement in their base running-. In the third Latimer's bat was hit so hard with a pitched ball that Tackfl toppled over backward-. Hagerman gave Donnelly his base twice. Some thought be was Irving to le generous with his old boss. Hines. of Dubuipie. has started a contest with Minneapolis ft,r Rusty Owens, who baa been farmed to Du- Iuth. Lister hail a new bat but he could not stir up the hits. The bat appears to be a trifle short for a long boy like Pete. Milan umpirrd satisfactorily. He fin- to thoroughly understand the game and tries to be fair. No more could be a.-ked. (iuy HIair. who pla.ved a brief en gagement at short with the Bock- fords, has been signetl for Snapper Kennedy s Ottumwa team. Two thousand people saw the game. Many cf the Itockford excursionists were on the ground. They rooted for "he Politicians. A car ran off the track on the wav to town with a load of fans from the tram. The mishap occurred at Tenth avenue and Eleventh street. No one was hurt. The C'ommiKiores are stopping Kock Island house. They ha at the re t R e nattie.-t uniform in the Icagtit . blue with white trimmings. Corkhili dropped two fly balls in left field, one in the first and another in the second. They were rank ones, but neither was costly. Ccrkhill seem ed in a trance. Louie Lippert is net so noisy as he was a u'nr ago. Louie had to promise to put on the soft pedal before his reinstatement hiis agreed to by the directors of the league. Added to the penalty that I.ntimer brought en himself and his -team with his r vvdyism. Manager Donnelly Soak ed him with a heavy fine before the team left the city last night. In the fifth a ball batted into the diamond by Hed Wright struck Umpire Milan and glanced over into the out field. Wright was allowed to lake his base and was credited with a hit. The Colts ncer were able to do niitcfT with a southpaw. Brittsen ha? j--ine of the widest benders that have been exhibited at the local park this season. He has an unusually deceptive out. And how they did bite at it yes terday. Tom Hackett, w ho assaulted an um pire in Roekford last year while with Davenport, was married to Miss Katie Brown, of Qumey, last week. Hackett 's now managing the Keokuk team. Meek, of Kockford. is batting Mi and Dalrymple and Jaeger ate also above the .300 mark, while Shour is close below it. Still, the Roekford pa pers say the team is not batting as it should. The Colts gave an exhibition of loose and ragged playing yesterday that was displeasing even to their most ardent admirers. There is a screw loose somewhere. It is time for the management to find where the note of discord is and eliminate it. Donahue was the life of the game. Aside from playing a good first he hits the ball and is a star on the coaching line. in the seventh he dropped his cap in milking first, and made the circle with his skypiece un covered. He looks like tic Southwest limited coining from third to the home plate. In the fourth inning Donnelly stole second while Hagerman and Smith were talking the sign language. Hag erman did not discover that he had been buncoed until Donnelly was so close to the base that it would have been useless for him to have made an effort to throw him out. Tommy Campbell, who started last year with Joliet, a team that survived a few weeks in Three-Bye league com pany, worked out with the Colts tit the local park yesterday afternoon. He appeared in uniform. Some of the fans took him for Johnny Heedles. erstwhile t wirier and umpire. Camp bell has not been signed here, and will not be. Hie management states. The Roekford Register t Gazette, speaking of open dates, has the fol lowing: "The Three-Kye league sched ule makers showed their folly in leav ing Saturday dates open. No game was played here today, and it will mean a big loss in dollars and cents about the league. Saturday is gen erally good for much more than the average week day. It is not the in tention of Kockford to complain for self alone, as Roekford 8 end of the schedule is all that could be desired, but in the interest of the league local fans feel that Saturday games are. next to Sunday, the best money get ters."

"At times she was unable to move at all. while at all times walking was pain ful. I presented her with a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Halm, and after a few- applications she decided it was the most wonderful pain reliever she had ever tried; in fact, she is never without jt now, ttnd is at all times able to walk.
