About the smallest crowd of the pea- son saw the Sterlings win yesterday's gnme, by a acotv of !) to (1. Tti'- J.-G's were short throe men BO they played Grogan, Seeap. ot Dixon, nnd Manager Pope. Jt Mr. Pope can always put up such a game, or nenr it, he should pl.iy regularly, for he fielded his position brilliantly, and made three of the clean- eat base hits of the day. His last drive Into center field was'captured after a hard run. There was the usual kicking indulged in, and Johnny Mutchler was replay ed as one of the umpires; without cause, it seemed to the grand stand. Ilia judgment on balls and strikes is (food, and all cannot be pleased on them and on base decisions. In the 4th inning Sterling sent 12 men to bat and scored 8 runs; on a base on balls, 5 hits (2'of them doubles) and 4 errors, together with several passed balls. In the 5th, Sterling scored once more, and Wilmarth returned to second and Uoyt pitched the game out, only one hit being made in four innings off hia delivery. This la the second time Wilmarth has been knocked out of the box in Sterling, and he has never been able to -show here the pitching ability he la credited with. . Seese executed some marvelous gym- naBtica in the air threatening to light on his head, but finally coming down all right on hia, after capturing a high bounder, which he threw to first and retired the batsman. Ho played a good game. Uoyt was injured by running into Poole at drat, and had to have a substitute thereafter to run for him, but he pluckily pitched the gamo out.. Johnson made a circus catch in the flth-inning by holding Grogan'a high foul fly with one hand as he fell in a heap after a'.^ He had just retired Calvin by capturing his" difUicult foul fly, and this wonderful one-hand catch Induced great applause.

She has been much fatigued by her work at the camp meetings at Clinton but is now somewhat rested, and is ready to recieve callers who desire to communicate with friends In the spirit land. A reporter visited her this morning and desired to communicate with a deceased relative. He was met by a pleasant, vivacious lady of perhapa thirty live. The spirits do not always respond to questions asked, she Bald, because they cannot always be found; they may be at some remote part of the spirit kingdom, when wanted. She however, promised to~miike~an attempt for the newspaper man. lie was given a slip of paper-upon which a question waa asked of a supposed dead friend. The paper waa folded and laid upon a small slate, which waa perfectly bare. The slate was held with one hand on the flat bottom of the table, which waa covered with a large spread, and the other hand of the reporter was rested upon the top of the table. The medium placed one hand on the reporter's on top of the table, and the other on the other on the slate. The aplrlta then began working. They moved the slate about over the flat surface of the undar part of the table for some time. In a short time, if the spirits answered, the slate should contain an answer. The slate waa removed after a while; it contained writing. The reporter's name was spelled wrongly on the slate, the anawer bore little [connection with the" question asked, and the signature was unreadable. The reporter did not find fault with the spirita for not answering his question intelligently, for none but a printer's devil could read hia writing It may have been that the "conditions" were not favorable. —A short time after the ending of Frank | Maynard's bastardy case in Juatice Goltman's court yesterday afternoon, Constable Haberer stepped up to him on !ird street, uear Goldsmith's, and arrested him on a charge of perjury (giving false testimony at the bastardy trial). Juatice Goltman'a office being closed, the party went to the office of Justice of Peace John M. Suavely. Constable Haberer, not wishing to alloy? a trial to begin before Prosecuting Attorney Stager waa notified, refused to return hia warrant, as the term is. to Justice Suavely. The attorneys for Maynard desired the trial to ba held without delay, and a lively war of words existed for a time. When the State's Attorney arrived, he decided it were not beat to hold .the trial ther*. so a«t Haberer to guard the prisoner, which he did uutll ordered to re IBM** him, U\a warrant haviuK bean with4fftwii, A new warrwit WM sworn tici' Goltmnn, where he waived examination, and v.-iii bound over in S-^00 tjunds to appear at the nr-xt term of the circuit court. He will ther* havet-.v-i charges to finswnr to, one of bastardy, o[ which the penalty ia a heavy linn or imprisonment, and one of peijury. for which a term in the penitentary is the punishment. Thus ends the preliminary part of the foulest case ever held in any justice court In this city. —Aid. I). L.
