One Clean Hit and One Scratch Was All
Keene Could Find Off Jackson Brat
tleboro 2, Keeno 0.
Jackson did It with his curves and
benders. Working like n world-beater
ami sending tho ball over the plate with
all kinds pf speed and breaks, he had
Keene at his mercy Tuesday afternoon,
and after a game of only ono hour and
33 minutes ono of the largest midweek
crowds of the season filed out of tho pa
vilion on the Island happy and contented
with a 2 to 0 victory over the leaders of
the Twin State league.
The game was fast and replete with
interesting features. In the nine Innings
that Keeno came to bat only 30 men
faced Jackson. Only two hits were
mado off his delivery, and In seven of
the nlno Innings only three men stepped
up to the plate. Keene played an er
rorless game and but ono error was
made by the Islanders, Median missing
a hard grounder, that went through his
legs. In the fourth Qualtcrs hit a bunt
down the third base line that Horan and
Jackson both tried for. Jackson Juggled
It and before he could get It to Murray
"Buster" was safe, Tho other lilt was a
good drive by Donovan to centre In tho
seventh. In the fourth Meehan hit a
hot ono to centre that was easily good
for two bases, but ho tried to stretch It
to a three-bagger and Qualters had hi in
at third. Edgar hit the ball every time
ho came up and two two-b:iggers helped
his batting average. The Islanders had
their eyes on the ball and landed hard
on Warner. The Keeno players put up
a good fielding game, but could not con
nect with Jackson's delivery.
The home team scored ono run In the
third. Jnckson hit to right garden. En
sign sacrificed. Edgar hit a two-bagger
between right field and centre and Jack
son came In. Kelley hit a fly to Devlin
and was out. Horan laid an easy one
down to Warner, who threw It to Qual
ters. Edgar was on his way to third
and 'Buster" stabbed him for the third
out. Breck took exceptions to tho de
cision, but Foley waved him away.
Another run came In the sixth. Kelley
walked. Horan knocked an easy fly to
Warner. Murray walked nftcr being lilt
by the ball. McLeod waited until It was
two and .threo and then hit a long one
to right Held that was good enough to
scoro Kelley, send Murray to third and
land himself on second base on the
throw home to catch Kelley. Warner
tightened up and Meehan and McLaugh
lin whiffed. The score:

KEENE DOWNED AOAIN.
Score at Keene Wednesday Was 5-4
Edgar's Catches Were the Spectacular
Brattleboro 5, Keene 4.
Tho leaguo leaders from tho start of
tho race kissed tho dust again at Keeno
. Wednesday, and for tho tlmo being, In
stead of holding first placo In lofty
grandeur moved along a peg and humbly
allowed Brattleboro to havo a Beat on
the same column of percentages.
Ono hundred fans from Brattleboro
rent the air with vocal pyrotechnics
throughout tho contest, and some of them
seemed to think that their yelling was
really responsible for winning tho gnmo
by putting Keene on a nervous edge nt
a time when steadiness was needed.
As a scientific exhibition of baseball
tho game was not In, tho samo class with
tho two previous clashes between Brat
tleboro and Keene, but n8 a period for
line frenzy It was all to the merry.
Tho fireworks began In tho third In
ning nftcr two men wero out. Then tho
heretofore Invlnclblo Nlms lilt Ensign
and Edgar. Ho was then lambasted by
Kelley, Horan and Murray, with tho re
sult that threo runs camo across tho
pan. Tho Inning finally ended when Ho
ran was out on a play to tho plate.
Keeno scored ono In tho third, on
Leonard's base on balls, Conroy's sacri
fice and McCarthy's hit.
Brattleboro put two more on tho wire
In the fifth, Edgar and Horan batting
safely and Murray bringing them homo
with a two bagger. This hit was good
for a homo run but for a ground rule,
the ball going under an automobile In
right field. Murray sat on second base
and waited for its return.
Keene looked dangerous In tho last
halt of tho fifth. Conroy muffed a pop
fly, then two singles and a two bagger
were cracked out In succession and Ho
ran made a wild heave to first base.
There was a man on third when the last
man was put out.
In tho last four Innings Conroy pitched
with great effect, Keene being retired in
one, two, three order. Brattleboro had
men on b.nses in each of tho last four
Innings, but could not get them to tho
Tho spectacular features wero con
tributed by Edgar. Three of his five
catches In centre field were extraor
dinary plays, and tho missing of any of
these drives would havo meant a tie
game or a victory for Keene. McLaugh
lin, the recruit from Turners Falls, stood
still In left field without making a try
for an easy fly only a few feet from him.
Manager Breckenrldge gave him the
hook, and put Wachtel In the field for
the remainder of the game. Mclaugh
lin went bark homo that night.

on him? Keene Sentinel.
There Is moro nolso In tho stand when
"Tom" Leonard of Kcono comes to the
bat than when any other man In the
leaguo appears. Although "Tom" has a
heart-to-heart talk with tho umpires
onco In a -while, tho fans give him
credit for playing on his toes ull the
time, but they do like to seo him strike
out. Ho did this twice against Jack
son Tuesday, in four times up.
Keene couldn't hit and Brattleboro
could. That's all. Therefore, and of
course, Brattleboro won from the locals
at Brattleboro Tuesday by a score of 2
to 0, applying a coat of whitewash to
the loaguu leaders. And tho fans who
went over to seo tho fun didn't get a
slnglo real chanco to cheer. One gen
uine hit, ono of tho scratch variety and
ono base on an error was tho sum to
tnl of Keene's work nt the bat. Keeno

Saving 10 Cents a Day.
A novel experiment In tho matter of
teaching Its employes economical meth
ods Is being undertaken by the Pennsyl
vania railroad. Realizing that they way
to add to the dollars Is to look after the
pennies, the railroad has nppcaled to Its
men to save at least 10 cents a day for
the company. Small as Is this amount
for each Individual, the aggregate Is
something enormous. For Instance, If
the 123,000 employes on tho lines east of
Pittsburg and Buffalo will net on the
suggestion It would mean a saving of
$12,300 a day, or more than $4,000,000 a
year. The men are told that It Is within
their power to do this by cutting down In

A Sunapeo fisherman was caught a

one came In heavily loaded, however, and
when the end was reached, Instead of a
hook and a fish, a bottle of beer camo In

moro good than any other remedy I over
used nnd I am thcreforo pleased to rec
ommend them. My back troubled mo for
a long tlmo and I was often so lame that
I could hardly stoop or lift. I tried plas
ters and Bovcral remedies but received no
relief until I began using Doan's Kidney
PIUb, procured at Holden's Drug Store.
The contents of two boxes removed the
backacho and lameness and restored my
kidneys to a normal condition."

Tho treatment of cattle on our West
crn ranges hns become a national dis
grace, agajnst which few except the
numane societies have protested. Ani
mals starving and thirsting almost to
ino polirt of death may be counted each
year by thousands. This is wholosale
cruelty, other forms Include exposure,
dehorning, branding and general abuse
tho round-up nnd the ordeal ot branding:
operation Is exceedingly painful to calves
and young cattle. Tho wound Inflicted
often becomes diseased so that tho vic
tim suffers continuous torture. Mr.
Howe Williams, In Outing, thus describes
the round-up nnd tho ordoal of branding;
"It was tho spring rodeo, My buck
skin was discarded for a sure-footed
cow-pony which took a personal Inter
est in tho chase.
"In tho crisp of the morning wo rode
out Indian fllo up the trail and then
tooK to tho hills. On a rldgo wo halted
while Pike, tho ranch owner, directed
the round-up. Two men were stationed
In a creek bottom to hold the cattle as
they wero driven down: the others
spread out over saddles and hogbacks
and Into canyons, hunting out groups
of cattle nnd gradually amalgamating
mem into a galloping, frenzied mass.
By noon two hundred cattlo wero en
closed In the coral.
Tho branding-Irons of five contiguous
ranches were placed In the tire, each
ranch represented by a cowbov who
looked after tho Interests of his employ
er, Tho ownership of a calf Is readily
determined by the mother's brand, and
the same brand und ear crops are given
The branding of the calves Is not a
pleasant sight. Slowly swinging their
ropca, two cowboys ride among the mill
ing cattlo within tho coral. A calf Is
dragged out to the lire, roped by tho
forefeet by ono nnd by the hind legs by
the other. Tho ponies know tholr lesson
and back till tho ropes .re taut. It
requires but a few seconds to crop the
ears with a sharp hlaile and stamp tho
rod-hot Iron on tho flank, but thoso fow
seconds are the Inquisition for tho calf.
usually it bears tho knife without a
sound, but tho sizzling Iron causes a
doleful wall. Wlien released tho calf
stumbles to Its clumsy legs and trots
oft to seek Us mother nnd sympathy
