JOPLIN COPS ONE
MORE OFF RODRKES
Mining Experts Also Enow
Something Abont Ball and
Walk Off With Contest,
Three to Two.
Hall tightened in the ninth inning
of yesterday's game and spoiled a
perfectly good rally that the Rourkes
had just begun to stage for the benefit
of the fair visitors. Results, 3 to 2,
When the ninth inning opened
things looked rather gloomy for the
locals, but when Manager Marty
singled and scored on Shagerino's
double and Shag Jn turn scored on
Smith's single, everyone of the 170
people there uttered a cry of hope.
Smith was left on first after Shag
had scored on his hit, so Reverend
Bradley sacrificed him to second.
This was a right honorable thing to
do, and in view of the fact that Tony
Brottem hadn't hit since May 1 and
was therefore due for a little bingle,
it seemed the only solution of the
problem. But Tony rolled a little
grounder down to Lamb and that
gentleman squelched Tony unmerci
fully at the first sack.
All Over a Dave Fails.
All the hope in the world was then
centered in Dave Williams, ,who
singled once, the day before yester
day. But David's effort was a roller
to Lindamore and the game was over.
The umpiringiad more to do with
the outcome oj the game than any
and every othe thing there.
If Umpire frown could see what
is going on ithe' ball yard, perhaps
his work woifd be worse than it "was
yesterday. Outside of that, though,
he is O. K. and is bound to stick in
the Western league.
Phil Cooney thinks he's rotten so
he told him yesterday at least. Brown
listened with attention and then ush
ered the agitated Phil to his seat on
the bench. Ben Shaw then went to
left field and Hugh Bradley played
Hall and Leuschen were just about,
even as far as merit goes. Each al
lowed but five hits and each struck
out two. . Hall, however, passed two
, and Leuschen only one.
The Rourkes will open a three
game series here with the Grizzlies
today. ' :- .-" ' ' " ' '

he completed arrangements for the
St. Paul and Minneapolis American
association teams to play against each
other at Johnson field, the Northern
Normal and Industrial school ath

The game is one ot the regular
scheduled sanies between the, two

With the Amateur Ball Teams;
Murphy Did Its Cinch the
Pennant in the Race in
the City League.
By FRANK QUIGLEY.
Oodles of thrillers were dished, up
for the fans Sunday by the amateurs,
and although a few of the contests
were lopsided, all oj them were in
teresting, with one exception. The
exception was the 21 to 0 mix served
by the Townsends and Omaha Bi
By a close shave the Melady Mav
ericks retained berth No. 1 in the
Greater Omaha league, when, after a
grueling battle of ten rounds, they
emerged victorious with one pearly
to the good.
Ihe whole Rambler hitsmiths
could not have more trouble if they
were all married than they expe
rienced yesterday trying to get a hit
off the puzzlers heaved by Peter Mc-
Ouire, chief ktnkster 'for the Te Be
Ce's. He shut the Ramblers out
struck out nineteen and did not al
low a hit or a run and not a ball was
clouted out of the infield. He must
think that Missouri is now part of
.Nebraska the way he showed his
Murphys Grab the Pennant.
By trimming the Walter G. Clarks
the Murphy Did Its cinched the pen
nant yesterday afternoon in the City
league. Mow, in order to win the
championship of class B, it will be
necessary for the blacksmiths to
knock off the pennant grabbers of the
Metropolitan and American leagues.
Although the B. & M. Camp, Mod
ern Woodmen, were expected with
Elmer Nuffer in the box to take the
Stags to the cleaners, the Modern
children were evidently togged in
their hobble skirts, for they did not
make much headway, because when
the smoke cleared away the Stags
were the victors, 11 to 2. Alpha
Camp, Woodmen of the World, did
not slackea its speed, but added an
other wrangle from the Beddeos.
Those Western Union boys looked as
sweet as if they were sailing on an
ocean of cologne when they held the
speedy Krajiceks to a 6 to 3 score.
In the Booster league the Sample
Harts amply demonstrated their su
periority over the Brodegaard
Crowns when thev sliooed them nine
goose eggs, while they collected"
nine runs. Pitcher Goodrou was
similar to a woman in certain re
spects, for he sure had the Crowns
guessing, striking out fourteen and
allowing only four scattered hits.
Catcher Lepinsky of the Trimble
Bros, sewed up the bout with the
Graham Ice Cream crew when he
ziotoed one for the circuit with one
of his partners lounging on corner
Would Shine as Weather Man.
Manager Hall of the Park Avenue
Florists would make an excellent
candidate for chief of the weather
bureau, for he is sure a peach doping
out how the wind will blow before a
game, but his predictions,- like that
of the weather bureau, travel with
the wind. Anyway, he and balance
of his company failed to jar the
Trimble Bros., Juniors, from position
one in the Inter-City league as pre
dicted by Hall. When the storm
was over the Trimbles had the game
in storage, score 10 to 4.
The Engineers of the Union Pacific
league marched into first place, which
has been the property of the Motive
Power and Machinery Department
all season, when they won a 16 to 3
game, while the boys that dropped
back lost a ten-inning battle with the
Superintendent of Transportation:

it, disband at the close of the first

parently not decided upon.

Don't be misled into thinking that
your Catarrh is gone. The first touch

Sew Statute in Golf Association
Found Impossible in Ama
teur Play at Midlo
(By Associated Presi.)
Chicago, July 16. The new rule ot
the Western Golf association, abolish
ing stymies, was tried and found want-
.ing at the WesteriKmateur cham
pionship at Midlothian and the rule
was changed by the board of directors
before the final round, in which Fran
cis Ouimet yesterday won the t tie
from Kenneth P. Edwards of Chicago
by the narrow margin of 1 up in
The rule, as announced severd
weeks ago, required that the nearer
ball be played first when both balls
were on the green, tlvus avoiding
stymies. The plan worked well in
medal play, as there was no lifting
of the nearer ball, and an average of
fifteen minutes time was taken off an
eighteen-hole round without any det
riment to the players, as they were
contesting the field instead of one
man. When the match play started,
however, the contestants were loud in
their clamor for a change in the rule,
and President Charles F. Thompson,
agreeing with the players, had a new

to the original rule that the playing
of the farther ball first removed some

St. Joseph, Mo., July 16. (Special
Telegram.) Arthur Killam of St.
Louis starred in the first day's shoot
ing of the Interstate association at
Lake Contrary in this city this after
noon. Killam broke 100 birds with

Omaha, broke into the high ones with
95 birds of the 100. George W. Max
well, the one-armed trap shooter of
Hastings, Neb., broke 97. Mrs. R. 6.
Foster of Kansas City attracted a
great deal of attention by breaking 89
birds, a good showing considering
that she had just stepped from the
train and was unfamiliar with the
traps and grounds. William Ridley
of Whatcheer, la., and C. W. Homer
of Davenport, la., broke into; the list
of high ones .with 95 each. '
