Junior nnd senior races pulled lu heats over
a quarter nulo and return , the winner to
take two out ot three. This will bring the
entire race within view of the spectator and

A Trliiiiip for llt'iiiiy U'urk ,
Team work and good taio ninulng Is the
secret nf the Columbiu club's lucres * . In a
majority of the gumos playoJ liuro tba homo
team ontbattvd the Duckoycs ever two to
one , ami still were almost Invariably beaten.
If tuo White Sox scored you could bet your
life it was an earned tally , and was sent
over the plato by hard hlltinc. That is the
only way Omsba could win a giuco from
ScbmeU's crow. On the other hand Colum
bus secured her runs by reckless ch.inco-
taking , peed base running nnd all-round
huiuiv play. In the gumo here last Wednes
day , 'when Undo distinguished himself for
stupidity , Omaha hud three turned tallies to
her credit , while Columbus had none , still
they won the game 4 to a. Fast buso run-
nlni ; nnd headwork will win nine times out
of ten , ucainst heavy ulttluR and woodon-
hendod iieldlnjj. Not a single toara in the
circuit won the series from Columbus In the
tirt division , and it seems that they
do not intend to profit by their
experience. Omaha , Milwaukee , In
dianapolis , Toledo , and even Kan-
sag City , are equal in individual strength to
tha Uuckoyo team , and with a llttlo moro
vim nnd dash in tholr conflicts with her
they will greatly augment the excitement
ever the second series.

C. P. Hubbard , the well known proprietor
of the Orokcn Bow kouncls , now la Kear
ney , writes the Forest and Stream : A
scarcity of game is reported from the south-
cin and western states' , ow.ng to the Into
spring and heavy floods. High water along
the Missouri rlvor and us tributary streams
has drowned out the quail aud chicken , and
eastern sportsmun uro beginning to ask
themselves whore they shall get their fall

chickens are out of the shell and quail are

C'Imtly Letter from I'.rlio l.iil ' .
ECHO I..VKI : , July 1. Dear M : Have
Jut tlulsboa my dlslmashlnir , a task that
§ 00IBS to fall on the uninitiated tenderfoot.
I am now located at Echo Lake , ulna miles
from Idaho Springs and 11,000 foot above tbo
sea lovol. Left the springs yesterday ut 'J
o'clock In company with Moi&rs. Lout and
Smith , two dlsclplot of Illnckstono , one deal
ing out the law iu Denver and thu other la
Idauo Sprint' . To tug uueophlttlcatcd
horseman like myself , our very start was
fraught 'vith danger. About one mlle from
town found a bridge washed out , necessitat
ing n ford inj water six to eight feet deep ,
running liKe a mlll-rnco. Accepted the serv
ices of ono of tlio natives who guaranteed to
got thn horses over while we crossed on the
lomnins of the wagon bridge. First two
horses mauo it all right , hut the third took it
Into his head to take a swim down toward
Denver and made a dismal failure ot it.horso
and riaer hemp nearly drowned In the
raging flood. However , the aforesaid native
had considerable Yankee pluck in his make
up and finally turned his hoi so back to shore.
Wo theu irot him over on au improvised foot
bridge. It is with a great deal of baciiward-
ness , not duo to my modesty , tnat I recount
the trials and tribulations of thotlrstllvo
mlles of our road to Echo. You know my
extreme fondness for horses atul my great
accomptishmoats In the equestrian line. . I
rode a nag that was un equine tartar. The
saddlebags evidently chafed him a llttlofor _
ho persisted in Kicking and making incipient
"bucks. " In my efforts to oulct him I nearly
rode him off the bank Into the stream , aud I
finally told Smith and Long that I had enough
aud was going to turn bacK. They refused
to part with ray comp.my , an action on their
part that highly tickled my self-concolt.
Found out later their willingness to keep mo
company lay in two pints ot old rye reposing
uently lu my sandlo ba s. After changing
to another horse we proceeded up the canon ,
and as I had lost some of my nervousness I
began to enjoy the magnificent scenery. The
road U iiko most mountain highways , follow
ing tlio stream , wnich is bordered by a most
luxuriant growth of wild llowora and ferns.
Columbines , lupines , violets , Sweet William ,
oluobolls aud other beautiful and odoriferous
lluwera were In countless prolusion. On our
light \\oro massive rocks with towering
peaks above , clothed in their mantle * of eter
nal snow. Uut the most stupendously grand
portion of the rlrto did not commence until
wo struck the trail , which winds In and out
tin the flldo of the mountain. You can Jud o
something of the ascent when I toll you wo
raised from 7,500 feet to 11,000 In four miles.
Thu trull looks like a more sheep p.itli , uor-
dorcd on the left bv a most Indescribable con
fusion of rocks. (3n ( the rlgnt considerable
dlstunco below lay the rushing streamwhoro
a misstep of our horses would laud us. The
last two miles of our Journay lay through u
ilonso forest of mammoth plno . Passing
through this the siieuca w.is only b.-okcn by
the tramping and putting of tuo horses and
the occasional cry ot the chlpn.unk. It
scoii.ed as though nature had stilled all of her
voices to prepare us for the magnificent
finale. Wo finally broke through the pines
into the clearing and before us lay Echo
lake , its waves bathed in the rnys of a de
clining sun. To the west lay Mounts Koiallo ,
Edith and Evans ; to the northwest Long's '
and James' peaks , all completely covered
with the everlasting snow , it was u most
magnificently grand sight. Our Hand Long
forgol his accustomed dignity and his forty
odd years and gave vent to his feelings In a

Wheelmen of today pre'or to consult their
own swcot will and go where they cnoo-io
and when they choose. While this Is all
very well for ino cyclists themselves , It is
"lough" on the club runs and proven a great
detriment to the progress of tha club. In
many cases the cause lies with the club it
self. Thu olllcorn are elthor too incompetent
