ceeded to clout the pill for many
scores and in which the locomotives
were the most successful. Kelly was
struck out and Miller was given a
lease on life when Johns failed to
hold the third strike and Wilson,
who. 'followed, was passed by Mc
Carthy to first base. Skalak was
struck out and Burbridge broke up
1 the -festivities with a safe poke to
left that brought Miller In and when
Cattleman had a bobbte at first base
both Wilson and Burbridge scored
as Cattleman was unable to handle
the ball for what would otherwise
have been an easy out on Herold.
Janda closed the inning by retiring.

had relieved Hula, was hit success

Great Interest Manifested in Tryout
of Several Makes of Trucks in
This City Yesterday Afternoon
From Satunlayi Dally.
The official tetit of two of the ton
and a half trucks that are contem
plated being purchased by the city
for the purpose of motorizing the
fire equipment of the city, were giv
en a tryout yesterday aiternoon
shortly after 5 o'clock and the test
of the trucks Mas made by members
of the council and the chief of the
fire department. Only two makes
of trucks M-ere present to enter the
test yestemlay, the Douglas truck
company having a fully equipped
truck with fire fighting apparatus
M-hlle the Master truck Mas also rep
resented, although not equipped with
the hose and reels as Mas the Doug

The members of the committee de
cided to make the tet on the South
Fifth street, hill, ont of the steep-
est in the city and Miiich had the
added handicap of having been wet
by the rain which ottered a handicap
to the trucks but the trucks scaled
the hill Mithout difficulty and with
full load.
The Douglas truck seemed to im
press the members of the committee
and the fire chief very favorably as
it fulfilled all requirements and Mas
handled under the direction of John
F. Gorder the local agent. ,
However, there are - tests to be
made by the International and Pat
riot trucks before the selection t
made'and it is expected to hold these
later. The ton and a half trucks
seem to nil tne bill as regards to
speed and service in getting over the

certainly go 'a long M ay toward mak
