TESREAU GETS RAGGED SUPPORT
MeGrnirU Men Allowed but Four
Scattered Illta Ther Oo to
riecea in the Sixth
CHICAGO, July JO. Lurry Cheney
proved a stumbling: block for New Tork
today, when hie almost Invincible pitch
ing with gilt-edged support, chocked the
league leaders In thtlr march toward the
pennant. The score was 4 to 0 In favor
Bis Jeff Tesreau was on the mound
for tho visitors, and although he pitched
a creditable came, his support was very
fagged and shaky In spots. Murray,
Fletcher, Shafer and Merlcle saved
Tesreau on several occasions, but the
locals took advantage ot each mlsplay
and his opportunity.
Cheney allowed Mcdraw's men but four
scattered hits, and each time the eastern
club threatened to score the local Infield
would nip the runner at the plate.
in me eixin inning, mo .New xorK
club went to pieces. Fletcher threw Elm
mcrman's grounder low to first and
Saler followed with a double, Zimmer
man going to third. Miller fanned and
Brldwell was out at first. Merkle then
tried to catch Saler at second, but Baler
beat the throw back to the base. Shafer
then ' throw will to the plate, trying to
catch Zimmerman and the Chicago third
baseman scored. Bresnahan drew a base
on" balls,' and Cheney singled to center.
SnodgVass missed the ball and It rolled
through his legs and went to the club
house. Before It was returned to the Infield
Cheney had circled the bases, with Saler
and Brldwell ahead of him. Score!

802-810 Douglas Street,
If you have been there before, you need no persuading to go again.
Hundreds and hundreds of people arS taking their vacations there this
year. Your memory holds no other place where the mountains
are so green. In no other land do the white clouds float so lazily in
the clear blue sky. Not even in books is Romance half so fair.
Every man or woman who has a touch of poetry in his or her veins
desires to go. And that is why the cities and the level country of the
Middle West pour out their myriads of people into these . glorious
mountains every year. Of course you, too, are going to Colorado, if
you possibly can. The only question is of the best way to go.
STANDARD ROAD OF THE WEST
Double-track, ballasted with dustlcss Sherman gravel and protected by Automatic
Electric Block Safety Signals all the way. These important advantages speak forcibly
for Union Pacific superiority.
Not to have taken one of the three daily Electric Lighted Trains is to have missed
one of the great luxuries of railroad travel.
Imagine walking into one of the wealthiest of homes and having it quietly roll away with you. Imagine it
spanning this distance in only one night. Do you realize that you can have speckled trout for dinner
tomorrow in Denver?
It took many millions of dollars in improvements alone to accoppliih this luxury for you. These ad
vantages don't cost you anything extra. None of your vacation pleasure is sacrificed your vacation starts
when the train starts. And it costs not one cent more than any other way.
