Jim" Vaughn, Who Stand
1 Fat Before Onslaught.
I CHICAGO, Oct. 8. In a thrilling- thlr-I'teen-lnnlng
battle the Chicago Nationals
, made the standing In the Chicago cham
i plonshlp series one and ono this after
! noon, downing the American leaguer, 6
to 6, before 29,368 "persons. The victory
of the'Cubs was dije mainly to the cour
age and coolness of "Big Jim" Vaughn,
who' refused to give way before the vig
orous attack of the south aiders.
The game was a ragged one and poor
plays were as Important factors in It as
I good ones. Though Clcotte was ham
mered hard, ho might have lasted If
some poor playing back of him had not
' been bunched In the fourth round a dis
astrous Inning for the White Sox. In
that Inning Chappelle, whose timely hit
In the eighth pushed Chase over with the
tlelng run, let loose a wild throw that
struck the grandstand; Schalk muffed a
throw' from Lord that let In' a run and
Bodle, later delivering an opportune sin
gle, misjudged Archer's short fly so
badly that two runs counted on the hit
and the Cub catcher drew up at second.
Singles by Bvera and Sohulte and a safe
bunt by Zimmerman had opened the In
ning, which ended only after the west
eiders had scored four runs.
Dens Succeeds Clcotte In Fifth.
Bern succeeded Clcotte in the fifth after
Xach's safe drive, a pass to Overs and
Sctiulte's hit scored the former, and after
.that he pitched a great game until" the
1 thirteenth. Then Zimmerman singled,
Baler walked. Good filed out and Brld-
well was passed. With the bases full
Archer shot a drive into left and Zimmer
man counted the winning run, Saler be
ing caught at the plate on the throw-In.
The Sox bunched sir hits In the fourth
for three runs. Lord made the first of
them and In trying to score from second
en Bodle's single a moment later collided
with Zimmerman In rounding third base.
To Umpire CLoughlln, as well as to most
of the spectators, It looked like a deliber
ate attempt at Interference by the Na
tional's third baseman and Lord was al
lowed to score.
Score Tied In Eighth.
1 Hfrers fumble gave Bodle a life in the
sixth and Collins hit and two Infield
(outs gave the American leaguers their
I "fourth run. They tied the score In the
eighth. Chase opened the round with a
single and Bodle laid down a perfect sac
rifice. Collins" fly to Leach was too
amort to help, but Chappelle drove out
khAneeded hit and Chase scored.

The teams, which finished eighth In
their respective leagues, put up a won
derful exhibition In the field behind great
pitching. Bailee and WeUman were the
pitchers that worked In the duel of left

Browns' elongated hurler, but the blow

and Wisconsin. "Tho Doncon" has a
phenomenal record, which probably can
not bo equaled In all the United States,
or, perhaps, In the world. During his five
years of racing this hors has never fin
ished worse than fourth, staying always
Inside the money. And at that he has but
three fourth places In his record. "Tlvi
Deacon" has been much written about In
the big horse and sporting magailnes, the
Horse Review but recently having carried
an Illustrated story on him.
Two years ago "The Deacon" was one
of fifty-six horses In all the United States
that had won fifty-eight heats during his
racing career. This remarkable horse
now, however, has a total of eighty-six
heats won to his credit. His record aa a
world beater, though, will probably stand
on the record that during five seasons h
has never been behind the money, and
that even then he has only three fourth
places to his credit.
His season this year was comparatively
short. Mr. LeValley started him in only
nine races. On these nine, however, he
won five firsts, three seconds and one
