1 1 r" 11 MILLER ALLOWS ONE HIT. Speedy Twirlsr for San Felice Nine Scores Shutout against Racycle Team in Slugging Match. Standing Interurban League. Club— Won Lost Pet. Covirm San Felice 3 0 1.000 Palms 3 0 1.000 Wells-Fargo 2 1 .666 Parafflnes 2 1 .666 Eastern Outfitters 1 2 .333 Directories 1 2 .333 Racyclea 0 3 .000 Colegrove 0 3 .000 There were just seventeen hits in last Sunday's ball game, and when you say that the Racycles got a small single in the sixth, it is not hard to guess •who got the other sixteen. There •were two prominent features in the game, Miller's high class slab work and the punishment meted out to Clark by the deadliest slugging aggregation of the Suburban League. It •was an interesting game for the spectators, for aside from the long pokes to the outer garden, there were times when Miller had to retire the batters by the air route to prevent the visitors from chalking in the run column. Three times men were perched qn second and third, and the chance for any kind of a swat to score, but Covina's premier twirler, supported by Chess in the backstop position, warded oft" the dange'r each time. Second baseman Graf won a warm piace in the hearts of the fans by his snappy work in the infield. In the second inning DuPrep lined a hard •one to second that looked good for a hit in any company, but the speedy college man ran and scooped the pill out of the dirt, and whirling clean around to catch his balance, slammed it to first in time to catch the runner. Another circus stunt was pulled off in the same inning when Spider Middaugh misjudged a slow liner at first. Graf raced out of his territory, and completed the play by throwing the runner out at first.. In the very first inning the locals showed how they stood politically by consolidating on Clark for three nice singles, &r.# a pass to first. Clark •was advertised as the man that had something on Miller. Maybe he had, but nobody noticed it. Clark ia a good-natured boy, but his horse shoes failed him, and he had nothing that the orange pickers had not known about before. Aguayo started right by singling, (stealing second and ad vancing third on Monte's bounce over the box that counted as an infield hit. Shutt hit a sizzler past second, scorj ing both men on the paths. Middaugh received an ovation as he stepped to the plate, and the fans called for a reputation of the three-base stick work of the previous week. The famous grin was too much for Clark, so the lanky youngster walked. Another run was added when Shutt came home after the second baseman muffed Miller's grounder to the infield. The second Inning was all for Graf. Tho first putout was made when N. Alexander tried to beat out Chess's good right whip. Then the second sacker's two great assists that caught the runner at first. In the second half of the same frame the locals added a pair of runs with the aid of Shutt's three-bagger. The rest of the runs were scattered along in groups of ones and twos, except for blanks in the third and fifth. After that the home team got the idea that it would be a great chance to fatten up batting averages, so Clark was touched up for all kinds of extra swats. Wilson •wont into right field in the sixth and in his two times at bat slammed out a single and a triple. Miller made the longest hit of the day, far out over left field. Four hits were made in the seventh, although none of them were great drives, they counted as run getters. Spider was safe on Urog- dan's error, Miller wont first on a fielder's choice that forced Spider. Wilson and Chess singled, then Shirley 1'it. scoring Miller and Wilson. Miller scored and Shirley went, to third \\heti Clark tried to knock the errand stand down with the. ball. Pete drew a nice single, scoring Shirley. 'The wily outfielder purloined the next two sacks but failed to score as Hughes made tin; next out. The score: KACYCI.KS AH H If SI!

In the archives de 1'nrscnnl are all the documents relative to the work. On July 14, 1789, the balls of the assailants stopped the clock of the Bastille at a quarter past 5 In the evening. Palloy, who dernollBhed the prison, three days later received the order to deliver the clock to tho commander of the Paris militia, who transported It no one knows whlthor. After the revolution the bdls were found at tho foundries of Itoullly-sur-Andelle, ,hj Rure, where, under the reign of terror, the church bells w«re converted Into money. The proprietor of the foundry was interested in these relics and did not melt them. lie Installed the three bells in his works with the movement of the clock. By this time the dial plnte had disappeared and the figures which belonged to It. Some years ago the bells were transferred from the Roullly foundry to I'nrls, and there they have since rpirnlned.—Lon- don Globe. The French Academy.
