Graws team which had been plainly demoralized by Sundays catastrophe in the Windy City had an opportunity to reflect and repent The Giant team is capable of far better ball than it displayed through the second contest in Chicago There was a feeling today that McGraws club would make amends -

set strong fellow for his inches but throughout he season has seldom been called upon without at least three days esL He as now had three dayV rest since tlie opening game Russell has been bothered just a bit lately by a sore arm Of ourse Chicago can afford to gamble having the line advantage of wp games already won Doubtless McGraws nomination will affect he selection of Rowland The baseball sharps believe there is nothing for McGraw to do ut come right back with Ferdie Schupp This youngster did not ast long enough on Sunday to affect his form for this afternoon chupp is a most reliable porlsider as a rule and particularly el ective on the high pitching mound of the Polo Grounds lie has always been at his best before big home crowds this year Interest in this scries apparently has not been dimmed by the two New York defeats The fact was demonstrated today by the big throng that braved the rain on the slim chance that thcukics might tear in time Practically all of the lower grand stand was sold out OX MAY PROVE THE DANGER OF OVERCONFIDENCE gpw -
