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

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 ,

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
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

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.

Tnr. 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 -

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.

There appears to bo considerable Ill-fool

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
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

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
"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

There lies in the Oklahoma wild west
camp at the exposition it very slcli
woman , who hiisn strange history , says
a Kansas City special to tlio Chicago
Humid. Shu Is a handsome and daring
little Spanish woman , htho of form ,
regular features , with Hashing jot
black eyes , dark hair and bright ami
plump chocks. She has the charm ol
youth , being only twenty-throe years
old. and is a dashing rider , n skillful
wlcldcr of the lasso and a dead shot
with pistol or gun. Yesterday after
noon this litllo woman , whoso real name
is Susie Kspinostti , but who Is down on
the programme as Miss Male , rode a
bucking pony in Iho procession and the
performance at the park. At the close
of her act she coint > liUnod that she had
boon hurt internally by the plunginn
of her horse , and took to her bod. She
was soon in such ngoiiy that Dr. Ford
wus sent for. Ho prescribed ino-iuhino
to case her of her pain. When tlio

commenced crying and moaning again.
To-day she is much worse , and the
enmpis in gloom from the four that she

Spanish blood and an aristocrat in the
wild west camp , fooling herself
far above tno ordinary Mexican

her lover was killed while ongugod in

her brother wus killed. She was told
of it , and , rushing into Iho midst of the
crowd , she shot three men who had
boon concerned in the killing. She
received at that time a socoud bad
wound. Dr. Ford is ot the opinion that
