DENVER. Aug. IT. Bmcb on balls and
errors were the undoing of Pitcher Lower
today, for Denver could nut hit his delivery,
and, excepting at tlie moments most worth
while, his support was fine. Adams Ms
also extremely niggardly with hits, Omaha
having mad: but four up to the ninth in
ning. !tam began to fall soon after the
game started and lasted part of five in,
nlngs, but not stopping play. Maag wa
given his base In the first Inning, went to
second on Belden's aacrlflca and soured on
Fendry'e error. Stankard drew a base ou
balls to open the second Inning for Dcnvtr.
went to second when Haaa waa given his
base and scored on an error by King-. Jones
was given first In the sixth Inning, went to
second on Bohannon's sacrifice and scored
on Stankarda noma run. With ene man
down, Omaha got three men on bases In
the fourth Inning, but Adams struck out
Greene, and Goiidlng's easy fly s caught
by Hartman. Omaha's real chance was In
the ninth. Pendry, who had previously
been given first each time up, made a hit
Cadman, baiting for Greene, followed with
a single, and Gonding made another. Hol
lcnbeck, batting fur Lower, sacrificed to
eiiter. sending In a run. Fisher struck out
and Fox was retired at first. Score;

Wim a Game Which Appears to Be
Hopelessly Lost.
WICHITA, Kan., Aug. 17.-Wlth the
count, 6 to 0, against them, the Jobbers
took a brace today and finally batted out
n 8 to 6 victory. The game waa slow and
uninteresting for the most part, enlivened
occasionally by hair-raising catches by
Scluter. Davidson and Pettlgrew. David
son's marvelous fielding kept the count
down for Wichita. It was Cole'a last game
with the Jobbers. He Will leave tonight to
Join the Chicago White Box. Oagnler was
put out of the game in the eighth for dis
puting the umpire. Score:

Threats of rain delayed the beginning of
the second day of the Middle West tennis
tournament, but after the clouds hud
cleared the unexpected coolness of the air
made the playinr faster and added mate
rially to the comfort of the players.
The afternoon playing Tuesday was all
In the third round of the singles and eight
exciting matches were finished. It is ex
pected that Wednesday will be given over
entirely to dcibles In the championship
events and the singles In consolations will
go on with the preliminary and first rounds.
The committee and Mr. Cravens are getting
the matches pulled off with a promptness
that gives plenty of leeway for the special
events that are to come at the end of the
w eek. N
"Gravy" Hayes started the day by put
ting out Ced Potter in two straight sets, 6-1,
6-t. Some players on the courts say that
Hayes plays a more expert but not so
energetto a game aa he did In the old
days when he came In from Rock Valley,
la., and plowed up the would-be city
champions. There Is Just a possibility that
these critics are right, but certain It is
that Huyes has lost nothing by playing in
fast Chicago company, and he has plenty
of energy lefl to hold his own with the
best that are here. Wolf stories don't hurt
his standing nor make him any the less
formidable to the people who have to meet
him.
Herb Kohn, another Omaha player, put
up a good fight, but found Scudder of
Doniphan too much for him. The showing
made by Scudder augurs well for the con
tests for the state prizes.
Spiece of Kingfisher, Okl., went down
before Sweet of Des Moines, after two of
the most Btubborn sets that have been
played. The score of the first one waa
917 and the second looked easier for Sweet
at fi-3.
A. T. Sherman of Kansas City, who was
a favorite among the out-of-town visitors
last year, is back again and played two
matches In the morning. The first one was
with David Rankin of Lexington, whom
he beat, 6-1, 6-0. He went Into the lists
with Drummond Jones next and they were
still at It when the dinner bell rang. After
lunch Jones won the match.
The Third Hoaml.
Cub Potter Is the only Omaha man left to
hold up the glory of the Field club against
the invaders. He went against Olin Sweel
of Des Moines, who plays a game that gets
results, but pulled away from him after
three hard-fought sets. With Scribner put
out in the same round and all the other
local experts gone, Cub will be loaded with
the responsibility of making good for the
whole bunch. Hhe showed a little wildness
in playing against as experienced a man as
Sweet, but he made a score of 6-4, 3-6, 6-1.
In the last set he had It all his own way.
The seven other matches in the third
round were finished up and were all of
the' classiest sort. The spectators were
troubled with too much to look at like a
boy at a three-ring circus, and any one
of the contests would have entertained a
gallery If It had been given a clear field.
Hoerr of St. Louis, who put Harry
Koch out of the tournament, was a victim
of Jack Armstrong of St. Paul. Each one
took an easy set at 6-1, and then Arm
strong took the last ti-4. Armstrong's
youth took with the gallery and his work
was applauded.
Paul Gardner of Chicago gave some
promise of what he may be able to do if
pushed when he defeated Dr. Sheldon of
Kansas City in straight sets, 6-4, b-3.
Gardner has a serve that resembles Harry
Koch's as much as that of any player on
Omaha courts, and he uses it with con
siderable execution. He Is not bothered
at all by fretting himself well twisted up.
but can reach the net by the time his
opponent is ready to send the bail back.
Ills chief asset Is speed. It runs into
wildness sometimes, but It wins for him
against a man who plays an easy-going
game.
Month Dakotan Trims Scribner.
Art Scrlhner of Omaha put up a gallant
flgHt against Hay Branson of Mitchell,
S. D., nut he finally had to haul down
his colors, for Ray Branson Is a crack
player. The second set was a surprise
all around, as Scribner took It easily, 0-6,
and the Omaha gallery began to be hope
ful for a victory. Branson took the third
set. however.'with the same score as the
first, 6-4. Branson Is champion of South
Dakota, and plays a game that wins
against the best, as he has beaten even
Peters In practice.
Billy Warfield of Chicago played a beau
tiful match with Vernon of Kansas City
and earned his victory in two straight
sets, 6-4, 6-2. Vernon plays a strong game,
but he lacked the ground covering ability
of the Chicago man.
The champion of Oklahoma went off the
list because lie happened to get too well
acquainted with Mr. Hayes of Chicago.
That person showed him how the effete
east plays tennis at the rate of 6-3. 6-2.

Dr. F. E. Shelden of Kansas City could
hardly play Tuesday morning, so impressed
was he with memories of a night at the
Den.
There was a notable tack in the enthu
siasm of some of the players after the an
nouncement was made from the club
house that It was election day. It was not
political Interest, however, that made the
difference. It was section 25, chapter 50 of
the statutes of Nebraska.
Only two men have been found so fiir
who will serve the second ball as hard as
the first. They are Harry Koch an I i.'ed
Potter. Either jr.o tf ilinr will make just
as much of an etfoji iu get the second
srve over In as dangerous a way as he
does for the first, and they seldom serve
doubles.
Jones had a bad fall In his match with
Bradlev, going down flat on his face in
the dust. Nothing suffered from the Jolt
except his knee, and it will probably not
interfere with his playing.
In -the consolations the little dispute be
tween H. E. Funk of Doniphan and J. A.
Kennlcoit of Luverne. Minn., was a record
breaker for games. There were two sets,
but the first one went 14-12 and the second,
6-4. Funk finally pulled out ahead.
The courtesies of their club houses have
been offered the visiting tennis players by

This is what one girl In the gallery said
abcut C. 1). Jones Tuesday afternoon: I
"Oh, yes, that's Drummer Jones of St.
Louis. He's married. Isn't he? Why, yes,
I'm sure he Is. He's no spring chicken,
I'll tell you; he doesn't get around like one.
He gets the balls without covering any
mote ground than he has to."
