The morning's game was fraught with Incidents that will tarry som in the The lead of Portland was short lived, however, for Haley opened the third with a safe rap. Then "My Heiney," in a merry moment, larrups the leather over the left field fence. Heiney had been listening to the strains bf Marlutch and other melodies and thinking that these strains were too frivolous he was moved to the deed of valor of poking the ball on the visage so bard that it brought up out in the cowpatch back df the left garden) walls. Before he made the rap Heiney contended that the trombone placer was blowing his bona though he had lost a tooth, and he whacked the ball just to sort of sober the music up some.

He ,, shot off a foul that hit some gent in tne nrst base bleachers on the turret. The only thing that saved the noted citl-en was the fact that he wore aq Iron hat, same thickness as the armor of a battleship, and the ball areened off his headgear like a putty ban off the sides of an armored cruiser. .Casey Gets Hurt. -This didn't daunt Dangerous Danzig ,a bit. for the next foul that he shot off he deposited in the countenance of .pearl Casey. It was a lurid rap and exploded on Pearl's stiff upper lip, cut ting a gash in that useful member about sv yard long. The blow rendered Casey hors du baseball. When Van beheld the terrible slaughter amidst Casey's well-assembled features he rushed to the grand stand and asked if there was a medicine man concealed therein.

Barring further future explosions of loaded baseballs amidst his features Casey should be back in the game in a few days.
