Bill Jackson' tribe wound up their very pleasantstay it home yesterday afternoon by licking the spots oft the unsaintJy Satnti from St. Joseph, 10 to 3, in another' windstorm battle. This time the win4 caressed the cheeks of the Rourkelets instead of .the phoney Saints." Harry Gaspar, celebrated as a pho tosfraoher and occasionally as i pitcher of base ball, was the victim. Harry's trouble occurred in the fifth inning. Harry aged 'greatly in this ' ttanza. It made him almost as old as Cliff Curtis, his sprightly comrade. Six runs made1 the Rourkes. It was a very wild, weird inning. It all started when Donica dropped 'a windblown single into center held Han ford bunted. Gaspar tried to catch Donica at second. And oh, . how he threw it Result: Donica on third, Hanford on second. Gaspar Errs Again. Defate's single scored Donica and Hanford galloped to third to come home on Holderman's sacrifice fly which Marr dropped. Defate, how ever, got caught at - second. Then Callahan hit one to right, sending Holderman to third. He scored when Lingle beat out a bunt and Caspar, after holding the pill a while, decided to throw it It was a bum throw. Kopp singled to right and Callahan tnd Lingle scored when Bachant let t t riinuni uuuw ii away irom nun. Kopp went to third on Bashang's hit ind scored on Jackson's squeeze bunt , Two in Second. Omaba scored two in the second on a walk to Defate, Holderman's sacri fice, Lingles double and Kopp's single. ' An error by Bruebaker, Lingle's sacrifice and Kopp's double scored one in the fourth and in the eipiU Bashang's triple and Jackson's lorg sacrifice fly counted one. a Kopp , held St. Joseph safe at 1 all times and was never in danger of los ing the fray.

Notes of the Game Omaha has played nlna game at horn end ha won aeven ' of ,thm. Tolerably good, tolerably food. Don't overlook the fact that mad thre hit. And he shut his eye too. Sum hitter, that boy. The 100 mark In attendance at a day gam at Rourka park ia yet to be reached. Two-fifty I about tha best Omaba stem able to do. Mueller (tola second In tha fourth hii.

Tha Kru Park band failed to appear acheduled. However, no. body mlaaed It. Ther wan't anybody there 10 miss u. . No gam today. Tha Kourkea s-o to nt Joseph for a four-game erles; then they return, and Tuesday tha twilight ball atari lilt Hutchinson making lta first annearanea or ins season. Holderman made a fancy one-handed run ning catch of a short drive by Marr la th eigntn. Doc aeema ta be developing Into considerable outfielder despite a year of aoaence irom in gam. Th iroreboard 1 now a total loss. That part which did not blow down Wednesday blew down Wednesday night with another eciioa oi th fence. Which should be pleasant news to th Insurance agent. Bert Daniel wa canned from tha game In th alxth for getting too sassy. Then In th ninth he waa chased clear out of tha park. Bertie said thing no person named oeriia anouia ay. He wa very shocking. Tony Defate had a terrible time at short stop. He started poorly, then began to re cover form and then mussed things up again for a conclusion. He made four er rors all told and then got into the middle of a snappy double play and pulled soma pretty nifty topa. That baaa ball, though. j' American Association , j St. Paul, May If Score: R. H.
