A remarkable ovation was extended to Mrs. Donovan In tho fall of 1!)0S when word came from Chicago that petrol t had woii the pennant. "Wild Iiill' won the deciding game, and when the joyful -crowds that packed the downtown streets of Detroit recognized Mrs. Donovan In her carriage they cheered her wildly.
