They all look alike.
Omaha has certainly created havoc among
the western teams during the lsst two
weeks, and It looks at If the Rourke famllr
Intended to go through the rest of the sea
aon In lt preent rampageous form. At
anr rate, the eight successive victories off
Denver and Colorado Springs were the re
milt of the fastest aort of ball playing and
the general condition of every man on the
team suggests that It Is not too much to
expect that eight of the ten gajnes that
till remain to be played will be Omaha
victories. One of theee games will be
piayed with Colorado Spring on Tuesday,
closing the season" schedule with the
Millionaires. This Is a very Important
game for Omaha, for with It the season's
series will be a standoff, while If It goes
the other way. It will put Omaha two to
the, bad with the Springs, and make the
only aeries lost by the Rourke. Thus It
will be seen that Papa Bill and his bunch
will go after It with all their might. Tommy
Burns was In town during the week and
expressed himself as extremely anxious
that his team get this game for the same
reason that Omaha wants It The rest Of
the games will be played with Bt. Joseph,
and If he Saints are no harder for Omaha
than they were for Denver and the Bprlngs,
they should afford the team merely a stroll.
ut It must also be remembered tnat Bt.
Joseph has played Omaha to a standstill
so far during the season, and there s no
telling what Webster and his bunch will do
this time. It's a cinch, though", that they'll
have to play ball to keep the gait with
It Is now up to Dca Moines to make good.
Both Df-nver and the Bprlngs have to play
the Hawkeyes on their own grounds, and
If Billy HofTer can even go half way with
the Coloradoans. the rag Is Omaha's. Hof
fer's bunch is In good shape, and has been
playing a very steady and consistent game
for the last three weeks, and this gives
much promise that the mountaineers will
havs trouble at the Iowa capital. Sioux
City Isn't out of It, either. The Sioux will
welcome the strangers on their own hunt
ing grounds, and It will be funny if they
don't get a scalp apiece from them, and
maybe more. Flemming has had his pres
ent team in action longer ihan any that

son, and as the players are getting a little '
used to each other. It Isn't at all unreason- ,
able to expect them to win some games.
Jarrott and Dindamann are both good
pitchers, anp Kostal and Cadwallader rank
as fair, while the fielding and batting of
the team Is good. It has been In team
work that Sioux City has been deficient,
and this is developed, but not to a degree
that makes the aggregation actually

would follow. The very excellent punch

All in all. It looks even better for Omaha,
The team won eight out or nine games
aved during the week, which Is consid
erably above the 80 per cent figured on. and
If the gait Is continued the pennant is aue
for the flagpole at Vinton park. And this
prospect Isn't nt all pleasing in Denver,
where they had it all figured out that the
Grizzlies were a cinch when they left home
the last time. Omaha wasn't on the map
then. Shepherd of the Times takes It most
to heart, and resorts to his customary ex
pedient of roasting the team and everyone
connected with the league. He can't con
ceive of Denver losing on Its merits; It must
be bum ball, or the Grizzlies would be first
every time. He Is now appealing to George
Tebeau to send all his good players from
Louisville and Kansas City to help Hallman
through to a successful close. About the
only thing that would make Shep really
happy would be to have "Muggsy" Me
Graw's Giants and Jimmy Collins' World
Champions located In Denver, and let them
play alternate days, with a ground rule
that If the visiting team should happen to
win a game. It would count double for Den
ver In the standing table. He's a little bit
tho hardest loser known to the game.
And while we have up this matter of
senseless knocking of the home team, it
must make the Des Moines fans feel good
to watch the splendid work that is now
being done for Omaha by Otto Thell, and
reflect that If It hadn't been for a half
fledged orltio on one of the Des Moines pa-
. pers Thell might still be in the Hoffer band.
Omaha certainly owes a debt of gratitude,
at least, to the brilliant youngster who. In
his chagrin over losing a game to Omaha,
accused Thell of throwing it, and then met
him on the street and told hi in the shot
he had already had In the paper was only
Dates for the post-season trip through the
country are being made by the Omaha
team, and a number of Nebraska towns
are assured of seeing the' fastest aggrega
tion that has worn an Omaha uniform for
many years. Other applications are coming
in. and it is not Improbable that the boys
will have at least two weeks of steady work
In the country after the lost game is played
here this season. Manager Rourke is tak
ing care of the matter for them, and clubs
wishing games should write to him.
During his stay in Omaha Tom Burns
an' mad verted to soma degree on the
w lather that has been experienced by the
Western league during the season. Out of
the seventy-two days his team was sched
uled to play at home only two were clear.
Quite a record for "sunny" Colorado.
The spurt of the Omaha team has started
several tilings locally, and among them a
youthful poetess, who breaks forth Into
gladsome melody after this fashion:

The recent cold snap was sn unpleasant
reminder that the time for summer sports
Is at an end; flannels will now give way
to hunting Jackets, and rackets and golf
clubs to guns. The summer has gone, and
looking back over the past It Is observed
that It has been one of which Omaha sport'
Ing men can well ee content. There have
been Improvements In every line. Better
tennis, better golf, better horse racing and.
best of all, more interest has been taken
In the various sports by the public. It Is
about the time of the year when the plans
for this season are being closed and new
plans being made for next spring, and
from present outlooks the following year
will be more of a success than the one that
is passing away.
The first plan In the sporting line to be
made for next spring was the Idea of hav
ing a cricket club in the city. Borne years
ago Omaha had one, and It was no slouch
of a club, either. The idea of reforming
the club was started by the challenge sent
out by Sioux City cricketers last week.
When the committee In charge got to pick
ing an eleven It was surprised to find the
number of new cricketers that have settled
In Omaha since the old club broke up, and
this led to the Idea of having another club
here. When a Darty of Englishmen settle
In a strange land, they first put up a
cricket pitch, next a mission house, and
then a field battery arrives, and tho land
Is a part of the British empire. But
first the cricket pitch, without it the field
battery and the mission house could not
survive. Being so, it was with great de
light that Britishers here and in the state
hall the formation of a club In the city,
and as the Kroner men are behind tho
scheme, there Is every chance of It being a
success. cricket never will be popular
with an American crowd, on account of
the length of time necessary in finishing
a game. For that reason foot ball draws
a larger crowd In England than does a
cricket match. Fifty Englishmen will go
to a county cricket match where 60Q will
go to a local foot ball match. The Amer
icanized Britisher will watch a base ball
match In preference to a cricket match,
but ho would play cricket rather than any
other game. Apart from the sport Itself
there are old associations connected with
the wickets to a cricketer In a land where
cricket Is not. Old times, old memories of
me days when, a chubbr-faced fa h
strode to the "crease" in class matches
and under the guldlns-
of a prefect learned that to funk a "yorker"
was a tning dishonorable and a deplorable
lack of school etiquette, and then later,
when he had risen tO the much-envlaft ft?
a "sixth form boy" and bad another
cnuoDy-racea youngster as his own par.
iicuiar rag, he made that hit for six
which won the match for the Old School,
and then perhaps later still, when he won
his place In the College eleven and was a
greater hero than the best

",UUB" oi earner days are In a great
measure the cause of the intense fascina
tion cricket has for Englishmen. It Is but
natural that It should be so. He would
