QUINCY , III. , Aug. 9. ( Special Telegram
to The lice. ) Today's game was a veritable
slugging match. Omaha played an almost
perfect fielding game , but It counted for little
ngatnst the terrific pounding which the
Quincy's gave Whlteltlll. Ho was taken out
of the box In the seventh Inning and Looka-
Imugh put In , but they hit him hard , too.
The visitors also did some lieavy work with
the bat , but Qulncy had the lead and kept it

COWis. Isle of Wight , Atlff. 9.-The
yachting enthusiasts of Covvca nnd Its
neighborhood were nstlr nt an early hour
today , and when they glanced to wind
ward and saw the stllllsh westerly breeze
which was then blowing they went to
breakfast with considerable satisfaction ,
anticipating a splendid day's racing on
this , the third day of the rcguttn of the
Itoynl Yacht squadron.
Interest In the Vigilant Increases rfither
than diminishes. Her victories over the
slippery cutter Britannia have caused In
tense feeling In Knglnml nnd great cxclte-
inen among yachtsmen here. Consequently
the yachting Heel , gay with bunting , was
crowded with yachtsmen and yachts
women and their guests , all anxious to
witness another stnigglo beiwoon the ri
vals so powerfully graceful bNieath their
imii ° r c"'lvi's ' as they swept about ,
skillfully Bullied , some time before the
start , testing the wind nnd strelehlng her
sails In preparation for the race.
Vigilant. Britannia , Satanlta , Meteor ,
Corsair nnd Nnmara were entered for to
day H event , the Town prize for all yachts
of not less than thirty tons belonging to any
recognized yacht club. The course was
what Is known as the Queen's course , some
what less than fifty miles ( forty-seven
miles , estimated ) , which varies according
to whether the yachts are ordered to start
to the eastward or to the westward.
Today the committee sent the yachts to
the westward , only the Vigilant nhd the
Britannia starting , the other yachts hav
ing littleor no chance of making aven u
decent showing with the two cracks.
Vigilant today , ns on Saturday , allowed
Britannia two minutes four seconds.
The dashing Yankee Hloop today was a
little too soon , nnd nearlng the line slightly
ahead of time , she had 'lo hold up for a
few seconds. Britannia gauged her time
more correctly and crossed the line just
as the gun was tired , securing the weather
berth , tin' American yacht following three
seconds later. Britannia at the end of
the tlrst round had a lead of two minutes
The yachts beat toward the Lepes buoy
very prettily , the quickness of the cutter
In stays apparently helping her , for she
outfooted the sloop and passed the buoy
with a lead of one minute forty seconds.
Britannia was the first to run out her
spinnaker , Vigilant following later.
Vigilant gained twenty-four seconds on
hnr rival In the magnificent run out to the
Warner lightship , but Britannia then be
gan to widen her lead during the beat back
to Cowes , leaving Vigilant one-half mile
astern nt the end of the round. In the
second round Britannia Increased her lead
to three minutes forty-eight it'conds.
On the way home from the Warner light
ship the wind shifted so ds to make It u
close reach Instead of a beat , nnd thl"
enabled Vigilant to pull up on the ciitter.
But the Britannia maintained the lead , al
though Vigilant gained on. her considerably
while reaching for Cowes. When Hearing
the mark boat both yachts had to make
a short board td fetch the finishing line ,
which the cutter eventually crossed u
Time at the finish : Britannia , 3-17:5.r : ;
Vigilant , 3:20:7. : : Britannia won by two
minutes , twelve seconds , without counting
her time allowance.
The victory of the prince of Wales' cut
ter called forth a tremendous cheering
from the Britishers ashore and afloat , which
only brought more Into prominence the
sullen demeanor of the spectators , when
on Saturday the Vigilant won. But there
were enough Americans present nt OJWUK
on board American yachts and ashore 'to
raise a goodly cheer for the Vigilant when
she came over the line defeated , but not
Kinpetor William of Germany , on board
the Meteor , followed the race with "Jitcrest.
The prince of Wales was on board the ,
Britannia with a number of guests , nnd
the Messrs. Gould and Oliver Iselln were tn
board the Vigilant.
It Is admitted by Ihe Vlgllant's wai-raost1
admirers that her defeat "upon this' 'ocda- '
Blon was the wordt-shc liaa sustained dur
ing her brilliant career.
This was the sixteenth race 'In which ,
the rival American and British yachts ,
have taken part , and the score now- stands
11 to 5 In fuvor of the Britannia.
UOUI.1 ISSUING CU.Vl.f.IINGKS.
Wants Vigilant to KccoVor the Cape 9I y
Cup Otlii-r Offers.
COWES , Isle of Wight , Aug. 9. Mr.
Gould's challenge for the Cape May cup
has excited much Interest' In yachting cir
cles. The cup was -won l/y "tho Genesea
In 1SS5. Since then It. IIQK passed In suc
cession to the Irex and Wendur , "While the
Brenton Reef cup , ulso brought , to.England
by the Genesea , remained in the keeping
of the Uoyal Yacht squadron Until chal
lenged for last year by the Navahoe. which
yacht iecaptured _ the trophy In a race
around Cherbourg breakwater and back ,
Mr. Gould has also declared Informally
nt the Hoyal Yacht squadron castle that he
is willing to sail three races against the
Britannia for a prize of $10,000. It Is be
lieved that If these races are arranged
they will be sailed as nearly ns possible
upon the basis of the International yacht
races sailed In the United States.
George J. Gould and the prince of Wales
have arranged for a special match for next
Monday between Britannia and Vigilant
for 100 a side. The course Is to be fifteen
miles out from , the Needles' and back.
Vigllant's people say there Is no truth In
the report that she touched ground today
In Gurnard bay. But on the first round ,
when the yachts were Invisible from this
place , Vlgllant's forestaytop was carried
away , and In the second round Vlgllant's
hplnnaker split. While neither Captain Huff.
Mr. Gould nor any other person on board
the Yankee sloop allege her defeat was due
to these mishaps , Vigilant certainly was
handicapped by these defangements of her

Correction and Dr. llunbroui-k.
SARATOGA , Aug. 9. Merry Monarch was
purchased from Gideon & Daly by J. Klt-
tron before the second race today , nnd he
ran In the Interest of his new owner. Yo
Tamblen made her first appearance today
and was made the favorite over Merry
Monarch. She failed to Justify the confi
dence , however , and finished but a poor
fourth In a Held of five. The most Inter
esting event of the day was that for the
Sea Foam stakes , a dash of five nnd n half
furlongs. Clifford , the western crack ; Dr.
Hasbrouck nnd Correction were looked upon
to give each other a lively tussle for the
honors. Correction st a lively pace , fol
lowed closely by the westerner and Has
brouck. The two former came Into the
stretch lapped , with Correction still In the
lead , Correction had had enough of It by
this time , and Grlllln took Clifford to the
front , with Dr. Husbrouck , who had moved
Into second place , Vainly trying to over

James Llndwy was awarded the fight with

after eleven rounds of hard fighting.
Ho aluo retrieved his reputation ns n
pugilist by making tltu cleanest
and g-.tlndst flgltt in his career In the
ring. . Tito Omaha pugilist went up
against ' a hard game last night
and at on6 time he was all but knocked out.
Ills Opponent'was a gnmo , hard hitting man ,
fully fifteen pounds heavier than LImlsey ,
and U an easy mark for none of the welter
About 200 sporting man from Omaha went
down to Platumouth on a special trnln
last nlslit to witness the fight
and fully 1,000 people crowded into tlio lo- )
hcmlan hall In the west part of Plnttstnouth
to see the fight.
After a lengthy wrangle the backers of
Hobblns wcro compelled to pay a forfeit
of $103 because their man could not get down

the latter was clearly outclassed.

WERE LATE IN STAIITINQ.
Llndsey and Robblns did not appear In the
ring until after 11 o'clock , and after sizing
each other up in the first round they com
menced business , and until tlio eleventh
round the spectators wcro furnished with-
some of the holiest nnd most scientific fightIng -
Ing ever seen In this state. Hobblns was
the stronger , but Llndsey made up In agility
what he lacked In muscular ability.
In the second rund Llndsey landed n hard
left counter on Hobblns' face , which floored
tlio PlatlEmouth mni\ , and until the gong
stnlck they fought like tigers.
In the first part of the third round Ltmlsey
cut n gash over his oppontnt's left eys ,
nearly closing tlio opllc , and won first blood.
Just before tln : gong ended this round
Llndsey landed a tremendous right
hnml swinging blow on the
sldo of Hobblns' face , which nearly ended
the fight , but it was a'so tlie means of nearly
causing the Qmalia pugilist's defeat , because
he broke two bones In Ills right hand.
From tlio third to the eighth round It was
anybody's fight , and In tlio seventh It looked
as If Llndbcy was n beaten man , as he stag

WHEN THE FIGHT ENDKD.
During the ninth and tenth rounds the
men sparred without striking a blow , but
when the eleventh round was called Llndsey
opened hostilities by smashing Hobblna
flvo left handed blows , getting away
without a , return. Hobblns was nearly
blinded and was fighting wildly. He clinched
Llndscy and In the breakaway struck him
In such a palpably foul manner that the
referee awarded' the flgltt to Llndsey.
Robblns was poorly handled , , -wlillo Lind

A good deal of ntonoy changed hands , as
the Plnttamoutli' sports were confident of
their man's prowess , although the most of
the betting was $25 to $20 on Llndsey.
Tljose who witnessed the fight were well
satisfied with the result of the contest ,
which was to baVo been twenty or more
rounds. It was plainly evident that Llndsey

The Drnth Itntn from the l > l rn o Cut Down
Onii-llnir In Kiightiiil.
The Massachusetts State Board of Health
1ms Just Issued a circular which It Is hoped
will aid lu the suppression of consumption.
U places the annual ilcatha In the state
from It at nearly C,0t)0. ) The sensation that
would be caused by tlio announcement that
so largp a number of persons had perished
last year of typhoid , or of smallpox , can
bo imagined ; but as the world 1ms long
looked upon this disease ns among the In
evitable "Ills that lleah Is heir to , " and ns
the victims RO , here one and there another ,
It Is borne with a calmncsi tUnt prob
ably at the end ot tlio next fifty year ? ,
will be regarded as crltnln.nl apathy on the
part of the extant generation and Its
predecessors. The circular calls attention
to the various contributing causes , says
the New York Independent. Chief
nnd first of these Is directive ventilation.
Next comes dampness of soil on which the
liouic stands , and dampness of the Immedi
ate neighborhood ; of course , basement living
or sleeping rooms havu n similar effect.
Overcrowding Is the next factor , and ob
servations and statistics now covering n
period cf twenty years show that the deaths
In densely settled d slrlcts from consumption ,
as compared with the sparsely settled , stand
In tbe ratio of 1,000 In the former to 727 In
the latter. Dust In the air of rooms , fac
tories and workshops Is n predisposing cir
cumstance , BO that people whose wcrk ex
poses them to the Inhalation of Irritating
particles have tlic.r lungs In a state of de
plorable readiness to be attacked by the tiny
tubercle bicillus when It gets a chance at
them. In England fishermen , who , of all
classes , are the least exposed to dust , arc
found most exempt from consumption. In
sufficient and badly chosen food helps along
the evil work , ( or If the f.ocl does not assim
ilate the blood Is badly made up , and It Is
demonstrated that the best defense against
the onset of any cvil-mlmled bacillus Is
sound , healthy ford. Intemperance In tlie
use of alcoholic stimulants lias been shown
to act In the mine direction , while iimlup
strain , either physical or mental , contributes
to the same end.
Now , slnco Rngland has reduced the num
ber who die of tuberculosis nearly one-half
In Iwenty years , by gathering tlio sick Into
special hospitals , and thus taking away the
source of Infection from tlie well , we look
to seea gene-ral movement In this direction
In tills country. Already steps have been
taken by some of the most Inlluentlal physi
cians and philanthropists of New York City
to establish a hospital for Incurable consump
tives when the poor Invalid has readied
'hat ' most desperate pass and also to give
a "fighting chance for life" to those not quite
at that point. The ever vigilant city Bo.ird
of Health has taken steps to learn the "name ,
last address , sex , age and occupation of
everybody suffering from tuberculosis , so
that atcpj can bo taken for the Inspection ,
renovation and disinfection of premises pre
viously or now occupied by persons sulTerlnj
from consumption. " Uesidc's this , there are
to be printed and distributed 15,000 copies of
"Instruction to Consumptives , " In English
German , Italian and Hebrew.
The Slassachuscttn board has prepared a
leaflet which will be made a model by local
health boards , which contains the essen
tials of care In eucb a concise form that we
make no apology for reproducing It. They
say the specific virus or poison of the dis
ease consists of a minute germ , the "bacil
lus of tubercle , " which exists in the tUsties
and expectoration of the sick , and which
mav In various ways enter the bodies of
the well and reproduce the disease in them.
Then follows the leaflet :
"Consumption Is the most dtstructlvo
disease of New England , the number of per
sons dying annually from this cause In
Massachusetts amounting to nearly G.OOO ,
"The ( VscaiD Is infectious and can be com
munlcated from one person to another. The
chief danger exists In t ! ' = cxpectoratlcn of
the sick , and If this cxpectoratisn Is care
fully destroyed little danger need be feared.
"Consumptives should bo Instructed not
to spit upon the floors of rooms , public
halls , street and railway cars and other
vehicles , nor In the streets , but into pieces
of cloth , or receptacles made for the pur
pose , containing water or a saturated solu
tion of carbolic acid ( one part of carbolic
acid crystals to about fifteen parts of
water ) . Such hits of cloth should be de-
troyed by fire before the sputa becomes dry ,
nnd other receptacles should bo cleansed wl'h '
scalding water , their contents having been
destroyed or otherwise disposed of. Hand
kerchiefs which may have been used from
necessity should be boiled half un hour be
"A healthy person should not sleep In the
same room with a consumptive
"Heinetnber that sputa must never bo al
lowed to become dry. "
If you have the care of a consumptive
study this , and follow Its directions , so as to
keep the circle of misery us small as pos
MINING OF SLATE.
Taken Out and Tut Up by Mm of Hiiro Skill
iiiul Miirh 1'iitlpnrr.
The manner In which slate Is mined and
cut up for imrpos'ja to which It Is applied Is
a process 'hat Is known to only a few people
ple , because state Is not found In many places
In this country. Us crlnclpal sources being
In upper New England and eastern Pennsyl
vania. It Is not token out of shafts , but It
Is quarried out of big holes In the earth.
Some time ago when the writer was nt
Danger , Pa. , he was Invited to go down Into
ono of thcsu qtmrrlo.s , about 200 feet deep ,
and over-hand on u rope , but he declined
the Invitation , as I think most Inexperienced
persons would do.
The slate Is blasted out In huge blocks
and Is hoisted out by steam and turned over
to the men who know how to reduce It to
the proper size. Hugo blocks of It nro t.iken
In hand by these workmen , who cut a notch
into one cud of cacli piece. Then they lake n
chisel and a mallet , and they nru BO skillful
In directing their blows that they can spilt
the blocks of Elate In almost any way they
please. If you watch the slab on which one
of them Is working you will see a little hair
line running through It , and presently the
block will fall apart on cither sldo of this
mark. The workman will make this line
go straight through the middle or to either
corner , just us he likes. I do not know
Just how ho does It , but he Invariably ac
complishes what ho sets nut to do.
Tlio smaller pieces thus produced are taken
In hand by another set of men , who split
them up Into sheets of the proper thickness
for roofing slate. This they do with a long
hladed Instrument about the shape of a putty
knife , but many times larger , nnd If you saw
them do It you would marvel how they got
the sheets off without breaking them , und
ulso how they could split them sp thin. Some
of these men can take a sheet of slate only
ono Inch thick nnd split It thirty-two times.
The usual number of divisions Is sixteen.
The sheets are taken and cut Into squares by
Wherever there are slate quarries you will
find a great many Welshmen , for the best
slaters come from Wales , Hoys follow tlio
trade of their fathers , and them are whole
families and settlements who know no other
means of earning a living.

A funny and surprising scene was witnessed
by n reporter lor the Sc. Louis Hcptibllc In
a fashlonanlo hnlnlrrssliig establishment u
few days ago. While having her hair dressed
attention was attracted by a masculine volco
lu tlio next room asking for a wig. A glance
through the curtains showed a great woolly
headed negro standing at the counter , while
the young woman clerk executed a-vigorous
search In the drawers nnd * boxes under the
show cases for something to suit him. The
man was six feet ( nil , with a face as black
as ebony , from which two beady eyes looked
out and two thick lips protruded , The girl
selected two wigs from the others , both made
of curling black hair , nnd lumlcd them to
him for npproval. But he eyed them with
disfavor , at the same tima running Ids Immense -
menso hand over his own whiter grapes ,
which clung closely to his skull.
"I hay , mUhUH , I don't exactly like dat
style , " at the Mine time holding up the
wigs on each hand nnd turning them around
lu a critical way. "Qlinme less kink > 'oaso
I admire straight hnr do most. "
After much trouble the young lady found
a wig made of coarse , straight , black hair.
Which looked as if IL had been made from
a horsu'w tall. U was black In the shade ,
but Inclined to a rcddluh brown In the
"Dat's do wig fur my money. What's do
cost ot It ? "
"Five dollars , " was the reply , whereupon
the customer asked that It should , bo put
aside while lie went out to consult with n
friend , promising to return In lUtecn min
utes If he concluded to take It.
"What does II mean ? " was asked by tha
"Didn't you know that all colored neopjo
who can afford It wear wigs nowadays ? Yes ,
some of our best customers are colored. They
are ashamed of their woolly Jnilr , and no
longer condescend to wrap It as they used to.
No matter If their lips are as thick as my
foot and their skin as black as ebony , they
want straight hair. Some ot them have their
wool cut off close to the scalp and wear wigs
altogether. Many of the women do wj'en '
they go out , and It Is becoming fashionable
among the men. Nothing Is so envied among
colored people as straight hair.1
"Do your wigs for' colored people fetch
the same prices that these made for white
persons do ? "
"Ves. They are from $5 to $50. "
"I shouldn't think that many poor people
could afford them. "
"Very few poor white people buy wigs ,
but I have found that negroes get whatever
they set their hearts upon In the way of
dress , and the price does not. matter' ' so
much to them as It docs to white people of
larger means. For Instance , a housenlnld
will come here und select what she wanlH ,
making one payment and asking
that It bo put aside for her until she can
pay the whole amount. Junl ns soon as
her uugcs are due she comns again and
pretty soon the whole amount is paid. I
liave a lady customer on West Pine street
who wears wigs altogether und 1 always
make her l\\o a year , as she keeps one for
best und the other for second best. Her
housemaid also wears a wig , and upon my
wonl I don't have ns much tro blc getting
my money from thu colored mnld as I da
( rom the mistress. Yes , .Indeed , colored
people are among my best customers , anil
you would be surprised If you saw some ol
the wigs I have rondo for BOIIIO of the col
ored belles. There Is a tall jniilutlo who
comes hero for her wigs , who has a clear
ollvo skin , dark brown eyes , curling lashes ,
delicately curved lips nnd perfect toth.
She will have blonde wlgn , wJiIle she has
beautiful curly black hear , which she SSOIIIH

else tint 1 am not a white woman. Wlion I
have u blonde wig I look like a white girl In
the gaslight , ' she says. Shu paid me $30 for
the last cue 1 nude her , uml when I met her
on the street wearing It I took her for a
pretty wlilto girl. "
