VYhnt's the matter with the llckle coddess Df Fortune , any way I Can it bo possible that the old girl never Inlands to grin on Omaha again ) It look * that way. Just think of It ! Again , yesterday after noon , the ruthless warriors from the land ol Iho Sioux knocked out the Whlto Sox , Jtnockcd them out so Imrd , and so comrlotelj ihat some of them couldn't bo recognized bj their own names. And It would require a derrick to llfl Hie gloom thai now rests upon the city. What made yesterday's calamity par tlcularly hcnrt-tonuerinc wus the fact that II happened In the presence of the biggcsl crowd that has assembled nt the park this Reason , Tlio entire enclosure was alive with people , and there must huvo been fully four thousand or more. They lined the outlleld in buggies and carriages , crowded on the bleachers llko Hies on u lump of sugar , und filled tlio grand stand until there wasn't room loft for oven a two-year-old kid. There wcro ladles there , too , by llio score , nnd their radiant faces , nnd tiower-toppcd liatR lent u pleasing clTcet to the scene. And every soul , almost , hud gone out for the express purpose of oheormg and applaud ing lor Omaha. Nobody dreamed she would bo compelled to again bow her regal bead lo the Corn Huskcrs. But they are real little devils , ovcry ono oi them , und they had more fun with Omaha than you over hoard of. It disgusted the ladies in the reserved seats to see them act up so. Our Parisian triend , Monsieur Strauss , % vns the llrst man up , us usual. lie didn't monkey very long before , ho caught the sphere on the end of his bat und sent itxvhlzzlng llko n musket shot way out over right Held. Ho would have made three Backa ou It easily if it hadn't been for that llcot-footed representative ut the Darwinian theory , Mr. Cllno , of Louisville , Kentucky. Ho inado an ulcgant running catch , und Strauss , who was tearing awn } for record , turned round and sheepishly came back to the bench. Old Buffalo followed suit on nn altltudi- nous foul to Powell , but Mr. Flanagan was more lenient with Crooks , nnd gave him his base on balls. Jack wast out for the stuff anybody could see that nnd without any unnecessary delay ho made a bold dash for second. Ho skated in on his vest front , and the bleachers vociferated with Joy. Then , to everybody's astonishment , ho miido n clean steal of third , and the excited multitude wont on with their shouting. This success , however , was too much for Crooks , nml ho imagined that be bore a charmed life as tnoy used to say in Boadlo's cliiuo novels. So giving his panta lettes a hitch , ho absolutely essayed lo steal home. When ho got to the phito ho fuund Ilollirmn there waiting patiently for him "with the ball. Pity it hadn't boon n club ! For the Indians , Monkey Cline reached first with his usual luck , which catno this time in the shape of an error big enough to work for a llvinir , by Joe Walsh. By u good nlldo lie stole second , nnd on Glenn's out > vent to third , scoring on Genius' scratch hit , after Powell had fanned out. Brosnnn tinned the Inning by being thrown out at first. Ono run for a starter. In the second Omaha took a load of one , but how soon she was doomed to lese It. Andrews waddled to first on balls , and nuw , no attempt Is made to nrouso uny hard feelings actually purloined second. This was the signal for much hilarity. When the din subsided Scrappy Jack im mediately revived it by driving the ball way out among tlio left Hold buggies for throe cushions , sending Wnlly home , by easy stages , of course. Mussitt came In n moment later on Walsh's line sacrillco out to Genius. Ctmavan'a missed third strike gave him a , basc , but , in foolishly endeavoring to take two on tlio error , ho was put out. N&glo then followed with a nice single , but Clarke's striKe out blasted Omaha's hopes eternally. They never made another run. Honest Ingin 1 The Corn Iluskcrs catoo in just as chipper ns you please , and tied the score , too quick. After Burke had gene out to Strauss , u second decidedly decomposed error by Walsh ave George Washington Bradley second ilms.o. I'lien a putrid blunder by Crooks gave Ji'Im third , and ho ambled across the plato on CFlanugnn's single. Having evened thincrs up , Cllno wont out , mid.tho Omahas tried it again. But il was no go. Although the Count got to first on balls , ho jwcnt to sloop then , and was tossed out bv the man in the box. Grover struck out anil Crooks died from start to flrst. Just to make the game a trifle more oxcit- Jug , Sioux City scored again. After Glenn had tanned out , Daddy Clarke pave Powell his base on balls. Genius wus thrown out by Walsh , but Brosnan made u nlnglo to right , on which ho took two bases , ns Strauss lot the ball go by him , while I'd well came homo. Burke struck out. Again they added a tally to their total In the seventh , and in the eighth two more. So Omaha wus again beaten , The audience couldn't believe it , uud you could see them Rll dubiously examining their score cards as they moved , with funeral tread , from the grounds. Defeat Is n most dispiriting Institution. Don't IU But read the score , and remember Unit this nfternooii Is when we reek sweet vengeance. OMAHA. > , : SUMMAllt. earned Omulm 1 , Sioux City 1.

Notes on the Game. Everybody was filled with disgust yester day , The boys will surely brace up this after noon , The Sioux Citys are Just a little too flossy for us. 'iho only drawback to Flanagan Is that he i& not rod-houdod. The.

Every ono of Omaha's errors yesterday were costly. Both of Wulsh's cost u run , and so did ttie ox-presidont's. yinpiro McDcrmolt was somewhat severe on Iho local team yesterday , but it goce without saying that there was no luUmtlonal wrong at hla hands. ijy bum * lilt by his owa batted ball was a nuoatlonablH decision , nnd Nnglo , too. should Imvo been allowed third , If no home , on a blocked ball. Walsh's game yoslorday was dccldedl ; oriole. However , the whole sfftmo on Ihc par of the While Sox was bum. The Sioux Citys are In high fcalhcr.

Br.n. ] Tlio prediction of bicyclists wa < verified last night , when Ned Heading , tin Boldicr boy from Fort Omaha , finished ilrs in the six-day professional blcyclo contest n the exposition building. His steady , pluckj work had been regarded with much favor nl along , nnd many have said ho would bo up it front nt the finish. Early in the ovonlnj Heading , who was n lap behind Wilbur F Knnpp , of Denver , made n magnificent spurt and , passing Knnpp , BOOH left the latter n hi ) behind. Thp positions thus gained won maintained to the end. When Reading dashei past Knapp ho was greeted with thunders ol applause. Thu finish , while vorv good , couli hardly be called exciting , Iho men beliif nearly exhausted by their hard work ns most of the time the weather was oppressively worm. Therefore , while tin riding was html , there was not much spurtIng - Ing toward the close , Reading's effort bolng practically the last , Ktmpp claims that ho was beaten by Ixjlug kept in a packet by the other riders while Reading was spurting , but not many can bo found who tak'o sides with him. Schock was virtually out ol the race for two days past on account of the injuries ho received by lulls , and ho looked very poorly nt the Jlnish. Nearly 15,000 people were In attendance. The amateur races were very good. At the close of the professional rnco Prinoo ant Morgan were not more than two inches apart , with the advantage in favor of Prince , Miles. Lap ; Reading OS5 Knapp OS5 ! Prince 035 ! Morgan . ' OSS ! Shock 078 ! There appears to bo considerable Ill-fool ing over the result of the tournament , Knapp , of Denver , was In a v * ry ugly mood , to-day , claiming stillithat Prince purposolj got him into a pocltot , and thus allowed Rc.idiuir to win. The local uapors nearly all lean toward this view , and , although nol openly accusing Prince of trying to dctcat Knapp , assort that it was n case of "Jockey' ing. " Knapp wonts .to ride Prince , or nnj or nil of the others , for 81,000 , and it h likely that another mutch will bo arranged before long , possibly at Denver. Morgan is also angry at the -decision of the judges , which placed him behind Prince. There was hardly two inches between them nt the finish , and the Judges declared that Prince was ahead. There was considerable talk in sporting circles to-day to the effect that Knapp would dispute the givinir ut > of the stalces to ReadIng - Ing to-uiorrow , but Knnpp would not talk on this point. Mr. Ingram said tills evening that ho did not see how thnro could bo any dispute over the judges- decision , no matter what Knapp or the local papers said about Prince's action. There was no proof of un fair action , and the judges' decision will probably stand. There was considerable yelling by partisans in the audience at the time Reading forged ahead , and much hiss ing when the decision of the Judges was announced. OalccH Finished First.

Tlio Mncniicccait Spectacle of nn Ar tillery Clni r Sotno internal- iiif ; llciniiilscnncns by n JlioVnr Horse. The Chrotffclo a fo\r $ clays ngo noted the fact tbntUho government had paid Captain Jerome B. Cox $100 for u horse killed In the 'late war , twenty-seven years ago. It is interesting to know that the ani mal which the captain prized so highly then mot , death at the battle of Mnr- frccsboro with wlilch Captain Cox's ' military fame is most closely connected , for It was here that Cox's battery bitvod the day for Rosbcrans by holding an important position at n critical momciH against fearful odds , winning a place in history which \vill bo hold while the story of the great battle shall last. It was during these critical moments , when the battery was pouring grape and canister into the ranks before it at the rate of six rounds a minute , that a bholl exploded under Captain Cox's horse with fatal affect , though the rider escaped unharmed. The horse was u well-trained aniuvil that had jralloped qvor many a battlefield , and was Cap tain Cox's private property. His claim for its loss was not presented after tlio war until too late , but a recent congres sional enactment reopened the way for his claim. "It is remarkable how quickly horses adapt themselves to the military serv ice , " says Captain Cox to a San Francisco Chronicle reporter."Every artillery man knows that they learn the bnglo calls and the evolutions quicker than the menas , a rulo. For ono thing they very soon acquire a uniform gait , which is about the same as the 'route stop' or .the usual inarching stop. If the horses did not acquire the same gait as the infantry there would bo varying distances between the different arms of the service that is , ootwcon the in- fantrv and the cavalryartillory and the commanders and tnoir escorts. uln the drills in the artillery service the horses will themselves preserve their alignmonfas well as the infantry. I shall always romqhibor ono illustra tion of this trait wlilch I noticed at a very exciting and critical period of a battle. In order to save some of our in fantry from being surrounded and cap tured 1 quickl.Y.apounted the cannoneer on the gunsjAnU put the whole battery - tory nt a deatp'gYililop across a stretch of meadow iiUcfrrt ) half a milo wide. I was quite accuatcifneiT lo such sightsbut when wo wercpjatl way across tho. llold I noticed the ctrjrny , and for a moment I was lost in udftnifatinn of the mncniil- cent picture , * $ &cry driver was plying whip and spuriho great guns ware rocking andi ? tfiundoring over the ground , and every horse , reeking with foam and full of animation and excite ment , was straining every muscle as ho galloped forwnrd'v yet it seemed to me that a straighC.line drawn along in front would have touched the heads of the lead horses in front of the guns. That was an artillorV cMirgo , ono of the most thrilling sight ! iit'tho evolutions of war. "It is surprising how quickly they -learn the bugle calls.- After wo-had boon in service some time , my first ser geant once asked mo what call that was , as the bugle blow some command. 'That's n pretty question for you to ask , ' I said. 'How in thunder do you know how to march ; " 'I don't know/ ho said , 'but my horses know. ' Lot the first note of the feed or water call bo blown , and there will bo a terrible stamping and kicking and neighing. Once in a terrible storm our horses and those of several other batteries broke loose , and there was u wild rush among the artillerymen to got horses in tlio morning. All was excitement and tlio horses wore hard to got , but when I ordered tlio bugler to mount a stump and blow the food call the horses all made such a mad rush for our battery that the men could hardly got out of the waV ouickly enough. "When "it comes to battle a horse scorns to know everything that is going on , but ho does hiS duty nobly and seems to bo in his element. Ho enters into the spirit of tlio battle like a human being. Ho shows no fear of deatn , and It is singular that if his mate is shot down ho will turn to look at him and scorn pleased. A horse in my battery was once struck , by a piece of shell , which split his skull so that ono side was Iposc. The driver turned him loose , but ho wulkc.d up by the side of the gun and watched the firing , and 'When a shot- Was fired would look away in the direction of the enemy us if to see the olloct of the shot. When a shell would burst near by ho would calmly turn and look at it. When he saw hjs own team going back for am munition ho ran to his own place and galloped back to the caisons with the rest. When the lieutenant pushed him us i do to put in another horse ho looked at the other ono sorrowfully while ho was being harnessed up , und when ho soomcd to realize that thuro was no further use for him ho lay down and died. Tlio lieutenant strongly as sorted Uiat ho dlod of a broken heart. "At the time that Adams' , Jackson's and Preston's brigades charged mo at Murfreosboro some ollieor was killed and the brigades wore driven back. But the fallen ollicors' horse had not boon taught to roti-cul , and ho did not. Ho just c.imo at full speed through the battery , and I toll you ho looked simply grand. Ho was ai'largo , line animal , his nostrils worobstondod widehis cyos fairly bla/.od , nu l yo clutched Iho bit with his tooth us lip came on. He came like the wind , and with his saddlc-tlaps Hying ho looked as i ! ho wore Hying miiiBoll' , insloaU of running. Every body gave him a wide berthand I called to the infantry that I would give 8100 to the man who would catch him , but no one tried it , and IjiJ is running yet for all I know of lihul- . . "I toll you I was sorry to lose Charley at Murfrooosbotfl. Ho was my friend as well us a faitjjTiit servant , aiid was as line an animal o l tTvorbestrode.Vhon ho was shot I tried to get him to go on , but ho told mo ji4tily ) | that It waa all up with himand Iliad loloavo him where ho fell , " ni-tK A ( inptior 1VHT.
