"I I - imU" 1 . " '"'JM'WWW1 I H.l -nn U I- "DOC'S" DICTUM. PI SHONG F.XFLAINS YESTEEDAT'S DEFEAT IX CHICAGO. Clarkson the Man W1m Is Responsible for the Iom-How the Hoys in Brown Feel-To-Day's Game Sale of the Cincinnati tlub-frportins Sews and Gossip, Chicago, October 13. The first game for the world's championship at the White Stocking Iark Has by no means, dampened the spirits of the Browns, notwithstanding the fact that the Clilcagos had the luck on their side. But one thing they have learned, at least, and that is that" a Chicago audience is about as ton?h an aggregation of ball cranks BS ever sat la a grand stand anywhere, from the very start of the game to the finish the crowd never once stopped yelling, nissing 6nd hooting at Latham, notwithstanding the jactthat their teeth were chattering with cold sni their lips blue from the strong wind directly in their faces tne game mrousu. IatUaiu, however, paid but little attention to fact did not seem bring out all his tiiein ami in to care to coaching qualities in the first game. "I want to give it to them by degrees," said lie "and educate them up to something tney don't know anything about. " Anson and his men, as well as Spalding, as may be imagined, are overjubilant over the result of the first game, and the big captain was heard to say after it was over that it was the easiest victory he ever saw in his life nhut such a remark is a boast such as Anson alone is capable of, was apparent to everv fair-minded rerson who saw the irame. Comiskey played a great first base, latham a magnificent third and the work or lusliong behind the bat forced the shivering au'Iienue into outbursts of applause on several occasions. There was one thing aout t!ie game which was trulv remarkable and tnat, the lack of the brutality which is exhibited bv the thieagos as a general rule, although it beetned that they were awaiting an opportunity to display it. Once only was noticed, and that was when Anson deliberately ran into Kohinson and threw him bodily off the base, us he was about to put the Iiaby out, ball in liand. The spirit of a Chicago audience w as manifested on this occasion by the round of applause which the big bluffer received for his noble act. M'QCJAPE'S UMPIRING. The Chlcagoans can certainly have no rause to regret the selection of Mr. Metjuade as an umpire for the world series. There were scores of the hardest kind of decisions to De made and yet he caine to the front on every occasion and disposed or tlieni without the semblance of a "kick" from either side. Meyuade's cool head, his pood judgment, his justice and his manner are worthy of the best man tnat ever stood behind the camber. Ilia judgment on balls and strike." ,as excellent, excepting on one or two occasions when he called balls on ontz, which were unanimously called strikes by the people m the boxes. rue game went on far more smoothly than had been anticipated, :md this there is no doubt was entirely Oue to McQuade's almost faultless umpiring. ANANIAS FOOLED. The very gratuitous advice which the St. I.-nii correspondent of the Tribune gave to Jifliv in yesterdaVs paper, to collide with laiaara on third "base, seemed to have had none other than a nauseating effect. The Chicago plavers, speaking about the dispatch arid the correspondent, said: "The fellow wants to be fly," and in order to sit down upon him, Kellv went over to Latham at third base, during a lull in the game and chatted and laughed with him pleasantly. As far as lveily and Latham are concerned they are on as eooil terms as any two men in the base ball business. The fresh chump who sent the dispatch is laughed at for his ignorance by ail concerned. THE BFTTING. The first victory for Chicago had little effect, if any, upon the betting. The betting has not t ten as heavy in the pool-rooms as might be expected, but considerable private wagers jbare been booked, few of them over $100 each, and mainly even money. If odds are given anywhere on Chicago it must be in some out-of-the-way place, as no bets where such preference has been shown have as yet been recorded. HOW THE BOYS FELT. In the evening after the eame the Browns went in a body to the Casino Theater at the fcliecial invitation of Manager W. A. Thomnson who isjat thathouse. The Browns were open in their remarks about the result of the game mm iusuong, wuo was a close watcher all through it, said: "The fact waa that the thieagos never played a better game of ball in their lives. We cer tainly aid not play up to our standard It was Clarkson who won the game, and he won ii uy piicnmg m a way tnat he seldom does M e could not hit Clarkson at all. There was no oatting mm, and without tne batting we miuu uuuuiums vo-aay. lie woman t let us jut mm, and ho wouldn't let us jret more than a foot from the bases. It was all ia the way we im ucn we caaie ig dm, auu tnat you know is everything. " Capt. Comiskey had nothing to say particularly beyond intimating that 11 anybody "sized his club u! on the strengtn of the tame already played, some oue would be badly fooled before the week is out. Bill Oieason smiled and said that the Browns should not be expected to win every game tiiey play. Latham declared that they played to keep the score to 0, but there would be about 10 runs somewhere for the Browns before long. Weich, O'Jseil and Carutliers all taou-ht well ot Clarkson, but were not in the least perturbed over the result. Robinson smoked a cigar with Little Xic at the Tremont and said he'd get even someday. In other respects the Browns were doing well. IBIS WlMAJi TltOIMIY President Von der Ahe has brought up the J imaii Trophy to Chicago and has it on exhi-fc:i:on by special request in Spalding's win-o on Madison street, where it dazzles the ejes oi the windy people who happen to pass J that way. It is a fine piece of work, but no tetter than the Browns deserve. THE CINCINNATI CUB TO HE SOLD -raong the visitors to Chicago who have C"U;e to witness the world series is O.

It Is now uner-stood that the name of Lorillard will not be lost to the turf, and there may be two Pierres on the American race-courses hereafter instead of one.

A. W. Chief Consulship TVhittaker Beaching for 300 Miles Notes. Amid all the talk .among local wheelmen fffaai-ni(t t tim announcement in last night's Post- Dispatch of the probability of J. S. Kogers' resigning the chief consulship, there was little regret expressed that such a probability was in sight, the general impression being that whatever Rogers was before he has been conspicuously a failure as head officer of the Missouri Division L. A. W. To those who have stood a little' behind the scenes it was evident for some time before the parade that the Chief Consul's weakness for racing and his leaning toward the A. C. IT. were depriving the League in Missouri of the work it expected to get from its leading officer. But when his efforts in regard to the illuminated parade were calculated to handicap it and not heip it, there could no lomrer be a doubt that he had ceased to be what his friends claimed last winter he was the wheelman vre-eminently best qualified to conduct League affairs for another year. Xotes. In the Massachusetts Club's road race Satur day V. S. Doane of Dorchester broke the thirty-mile record to 1:511:38 2-5. S. G. Whittaker is trying to break the twenty-four hour record on a fifty-mile straightaway course nearCrawfordsville, Ind. He is said to have covered the first ten miles in 6:01:15 beating all world's records for the road and even Ives' recent track record. He finished 150 miles in 10:2S:52 and was then reaching out for SOU miles in the twenty-four hours. There was a "pony" professional torfrna- ment at Lynn, Mass. , Saturday . A strong wind spoiled the attempts to make unusual time, but Morgan and Mme. Armaindo suc ceeded in breaking the live-mile tandem record from 20:2S to 18:28 2-5. t'razier's at tempt to lower the Star mile record failed, his time beinsr only 2:45 4-5. In the five- mile handicap Frazier. scratch, beat Woodside scratch. Morgan and Eck in 15:25. Woodside started to beat the one-hour record, but the wind played him out after three miles. A great deal has been said about the ser ious accident that happened to George Dakin of Buffalo, on the L. A. VV. tour, and It has been repeatedly asserted that in coastitisr' steep hill he took a header, buch an incongruous collection of teraas has found its way even into cycling journals the editors of which didn't seem to know that a "header'' can't betaken while coasting. With the legs over the handle bars all that can occur is what is usually but not elegantly called a "uurao. it now turns out that Mr Dakin's fall waa caused by his following such instructions as those promulgated last year by President Williams, who proclaimed this caution: ' 'Always pedal down hill. Never coast." Dakm instead of coasting a steep grade tried to pedal down, lost ins pedals and was thrown over the handles upon his head. Had he been coasting he would have landed graceiuuy on his feet. Sporting Notes. K. C. Pate and W. S. Barnes sell their stables at auction at Lexington, Ky., December 20.

Line of Swamp Fires Near Akron, O. Property Endangered. Akros, O., October 19. A line of fires, fully five miles long, is sweeping over the Copeley swamps, five miles west of here. The smoke therefrom is hanging over this city, and the country is illuminated for many miles around. The forest of several hundred acres, great tracts of pasture lands and manv miles of fences- are being destroyed. Larse herds of cattle were grazing in tne swamps, and it is supposed that sev ral head have perished. Others, in great terror, fled to the open fields adjoining in the wildest confusion. There are several dwelling houses in the line of the fire. It is feared these will be swept awav. The surface of the earth is muck, which "is burning fully three feet deeri. The damasre will be many thousand dollars. It is not known how the fire started, but it is supposed that hunters ignited leaves. The flames run as high as the tallest pines and with great rapidity.

The light operas and the Rainwater Rifles received an ovation last night at the Exposition. The thronging crowds were present as usual andGilmore and the exhibits recelred their share of attention. To-day the classics receive attention and to judge from the attendance this afternoon they almost out-popularlze the popular composers. This was named merchants' day, but every day belongs to everyone, and while the merchants and their friends and families were present they were mixed with country people and representatives of all classes. To-nisht, with the unveiling of the char acter of the "Bachelor," which will take place on the stage. Col. Gilmore will present a programme replete with gems of the great composers. It will be as follows: FIRST PART 7:30 O'CLOCK. 1. Overture "Eramiidl Kesbnrgo" Meyerbeer 2 Larpo (The Celebrated Quartette) Hsyilen 3. Grauil selection from 'il Guira- mento" Mercadante 4.

" For the remaining four days of the Hxposi tion new features have been prepared. It was found impossible to make proper arrange ruents for the treat to the orphans, so the suggestion was abandoned. To-morrow will be trench day, and in the evening the band will give selections lrom the French composers and the airs of sunny France. A new and attractive pro gramme will be arrauged for thursday night. On Friday night the grand reunion and con cert of the German singing societies will take place and promises rare entertainment. Ail the German singer will take part and accompanied bv the band the music cannot fail to be inspiring. On Saturday night the Kxposition will be brought to a close by the masque parade and festivities of the veiled exhibitors. There will be 200 unique costumes in line of every possible design with local hits which can not fail to make plenty of fun. After the parade there will be a final concert by the band, which will be a rouser, conciuu-iug with the doxoloiry by baud and audience. . Charles Petit, who plays a B flat cornet in the band, and sits immediately beneath the director's baton, is perplexed by a mystery. He has frequently played solos of late, and on two occasions after his solo performances has found flowers waiting for him at the stage door. Last week it was a horseshoe of white roses.yes-terday it was a lyre of yellow rosea and smilax. with the name "Petit" in immortelles placed between the horns of the lyre. Who the donor is the cornetist does not know. The addresses are written in a lady's hand and the selection of designs shows a lady's taste, therefore it is supposed the donor is a lady. Mr. Petit denies to his friends that he has any knowledge of her identity, and says he knows no one in the city who would be likely to bo lavishly waste money anonymously. He is without doubt the most handsome man in the organization, and though tall and well-made is slightly feminine in manner. This but renders htm more attractive. There is one point about him, however, tnat might limit his attraction he is married. Theater-goers will remember his wife who appeared in the first production of "Siberia" in this city. She is known professionally as Alice Coleman and is a wonderful performer on the cornet. She and Petit led the spectacular march as heralds, and invariably were received with enthusi asm. She is living quietlv down Fast now. waiting for the St. Louis Kxposition to close, when the flower-decked Petit will return to her. Exposition Notes. Putting the applause in the right place will be the chief effort to-night. The self-appointed critic in the Art Gallerv finds a few appreciative listeners. For a capital cigar the best place is Stick- ney's stand, near the restaurant. Society may be seen duriiiK the dav. rerire- sented by some of its fairest buds. For elegant saddles and harness the Helde- man-Benoist display is unrivalled. The kind of pictures which evervone wants is shown in the John A. Schoiten display. A short-sighted lady created considerable amusement yesterday by passing her nose over the pictures in the gallery. The Famous display never loses its charm for young and old, and at all times of the day and night there is a throng gathered around it. Mr. John Meier has to answer hundreds of questions concerning his exhibit every day which only proves the interest w hich is excited by the illustration of the process of making good shoes. The factory gains in popularity as the life of the Kxposition shortens. There are onlv a few more davs left to vinv the splendid disDlav of stoves eriven hv thn Excelsior Manufacturing Company. The art of cooking is exemplided iu a practical man ner, wnicn appeals at once to the foorl sfnsf of the ladies. There is no more popular spot in the Kxnosition. Those complaining; of Sore Throat or Hoarseness should use Brown's Bronchial Troches. The effect is extraordinary, partic ularly when used by singers and speakers for clearing the voice. DEPARTING DIVINES. Outside Conventions Drawlnr lwa ho Spiritual Shepherds. The several church, conventions in various parts of the State have taken from the city a number of pastors and churchmen. Besides the Episcopalians, who are at Chicago, a large delegation of Baptists has gone to Moberly to attend the meeting of the State General Association which' opens there this evening. Rev. Dr. J.

THE FINK LANDS AND RAPID GBOWTII OF SUMXER COUNTY. Qualities of Soil and Climate that Tempt the Thrifty Emigrant Deposits of the Precious Metals The Model Town of Wellington and Its Reautif ul Park A Kenned and Happy Community. Special Correspondence of the Post-Iispatch. Wellington-, Kan. , October 14. Sumner County is the largest in the State of Kansas. Here the wayfarer finds himself lost in a long reach of the finest land the sun ever shone upon, and the scene is kept from being a monotonous one. by the undulations of the earth, and by frequent hills. The face of na ture is truly a majestic one, and the new beauties that are constantly meeting the eye on every baud, can not but make a responsive chord in the heart of even the most careless spectator. The beautiful groves of timber, gone natural and some planted by man, the broad rolling prairies that stretch as far as the eye can see, ail challenge the unqualified praise of the newcomer. When the emigrant reaches Sum ner County he stands, as it were, upon the very threshold of a gold country, not of the precious metal but of prolific promise, as regards the abundant yield of the golden grain. Sumner County is a veritable paradise, and the tiller ot " the soil finds here all that heart could wish to make life a 1ov. Land is remarkably cheap, ranging in price from $6 to $30 per acre. Excellent farming land can be bought for J10 an acre and on long time. Wellington, the county-seat, offers a good market, as it has two railroads already and will in a few months have two additional roads, that will give outlets both north and south, as well as east and west. There is not a county in the whole State of Kansas that offers greater attractions for investment than Sumner; it is perfectly safe to predict that within the next two years, lands that are now selling for $10 and $1-2 an acre, will bring double the same money, the various railroad schemes that seem to all center in Southern Kansas will of themselves have great tendency to inflate values on all real estate. WELLINGTON. A beautiful city is this, and one destined to wield no small influence in the years to come. upon the financial condition of Southern Kansas. Situated iu the heart of the most magnificent farming country that sun ever shone upon, and with railroad facilities that are unsurpassed, the future prospects of Wellington are indeed of a most flattering nature. The city has a population of between six and seven thousand, and has grown to its present size witnout tne neip or any special boom. But it has this fall taken a new lease of life and within the next two or three years promises to double its present size. One of the handsomest court-houses in the State has been erected here at a cost of some sSO.OOO, and yet the county is out of debt. Taxes are very low, much more so than in some surrounding counties, special attention has been given to the establishment of good scnools. and the public schools of Wellington stand to-day on as high a plane of excellence as any in the State. Several of the leading citizens of Wellington, in order to add to the attractions of their town, bought a tract of land adjoining the city (160 acres) and have laid it out in lots and blocks, naming it FAIRMONT PARK ADDITION. A more beautiful situation for a park could not be imagined. It lies on an eminence that overlooks the entire city. The plat surround ing the park has been laid out in residence lots, and here are eoing up some of the finest and most costly dwellings in the city. r ronting tne city, anu on me ingiiesi. point of this addition, lie two blocks of ground donated to the commissioners for a normal school, and uext year will without doubt see the Southern Kansas Normal School building in course of erection.

Henry Scott Anderson, a negro ex-convict, was before Judge Cady this mornicg on charges of disturbing the peace and falsely representing himself to be an officer. He was arrested by Officer Danaher at Sixteenth and Poplar streets, last night, while in company with a white girl who gave the name of Louisa Brown, and stated that the negro was arresting her. Ou the witness stand this morning the girl, who is a very innocent-looking crea ture about 20 years of age. testified that she works as a domestic, but at present is out of employment, and has been stopping at No. 2120 Morgan street with a mulatto woman who formerly worked out with her. About 10 o'clock last night she left a man with whom she had been out walking on Twenty-second street between Morgan street and Lucas avenue, and Anderson came up to her and placing his hand on her shoulder said he knew considerable about her and asked her to go along with him and he would tell her all abont it. She went along with him and he commenced by telling her that he bad been ordered by Officer Duffy to place her under arrest, and that the officer had stood at the corner and arrested the man she had just left. They had heard the whole conversation between her and the man and he knew all about her. They walked along until they reached Twentieth street and Washington avenue when lie offered to release her if she would go into a cellar there with him. She refused and after arguing with her for awhile, another negro, who also represented that he was an officer, came up and said Officer Duffy wanted her brought to Twentietn and Morgan streets, where he was waiting for her. They went over there but Duffy was not in sight. Then Anderson sent the other negro for a patrol box key and the tellow returned with a key. Anderson, in the meantime endeavoring to convince the girl that she had better do as he wanted her and avoid a great deal of trouble. She refused and then he walked toward the Four Courts with her, endeavoring all the way down to get her to yield to his wishes. At Sixteenth and Spruce streets they met Officer Danaher as stated, and he arrested Anderson. The name given bv the girl is not her right name. Officer Danaher testified that the nesrro when questioned by him claimed that he was doing work for Chief of Detectives O'Neill, and that he was at work on this particular case for Officer Duffy. The girl had been associating with thieves whom they wanted to capture. Danaber said further that he had made inquiries about the girl, and found that she bore a very good reputation. Anderson made no defense, and Judge Cady, in passing on the case, saldr Unfortunately I am restricted in dealing with this defendant, but I'll fine him JoOO for disturbing the peace and $100 for resisting an oincer. ' "Will you give him an hour to town?" asked the defendant's attorney leave "Not a minute, " said the Judge. The fines imposed will keep Anderson the Work-house for a year to come. In Gov.

TIIE KIND OF EVIDENCE THAT CANNOT BE DOUBTED. Some Very Simple and Candid Words on an Important Topic. Michael Danahue, 4035 North Twenty -fifth Street. 'About three years ago, "said Mr. Danahue, the subject of the above cut, "I took a severe cold, which I neglected. My nose became stopped up, first on one side and then on the other. I could feel a dropping down of mucus In the back part of my throat. I had quite a severe pain in my breast. My hearing was affected, my appetite was poor. I felt 6leepy and drowsy all the time. In fact, I had catarrh. Well, about five months ago I began to be treated by Dr. McCoy. I"or the last two months I have been free from all symptoms of catarrh. I eat well, sleep well, have no more cough, no more pain in my head. In fact, 1 feel as well as I ever did." Interesting Evidence. When oatarrh has existed In the head and the upper part of the throat for any length of time the patient living in a district where people are subject to catarrhal affection and the disease has been left uncured, the catarrh invariably, sometimes slowly, extends down tue windpipe and into the bronchial tubes, which tubes convey the air to tho different parts of the lungs. The tubes become affected from the swelling and the mucus aria, ing from catarrh unu in some instances become plugged up so that the air cannot get out as freely as it nhonld. Shortness of breath follows and the patient breathes with labor and difficulty. In either case there is sound of crackling and wheezing inside the chest. At this stage of the disease the breathing is usually more rapid than when In health. The patient also ha Lot flashes over his body. The pain which accompanies this condition is of a dull character, felt, in the chest behind the breast bone or under the shoulder blade. The pain may come and go lant a few days and then be absent for several others. The cough that occurs ia the first stages of bronchial catarrh is dry, comes on at Intervals, Is hacking in character and usually roost troublesome in the morning on rising or going to bed at night, and it may be tu first evidence of the disease extending In the lutga. At first there may be nothing brought up by the cough; then there Is a little tough, ten.t-cious mucus which tho patient finds great difficulty in bringing up. Sometimes there are fits of coughing In duced by tough mucus ho violent as to cause vomiting. Later on. the mucus that is raised is found to contain kinall particles of yellow matter which indicates that the small tubes in the lungs are now affected. With this there are often streaks of blood mixed with the mucus. In some casea the patient becomes very pale, has fever, and expectorates before any cough appears. in some cases email rnascs T cnoesy ud-stance are eplt up, which, when prewsed between the fingers, emit a bad odor. In other cases particles of a hard , chalky nature are spit up. The raising of cheecy or chalky lumps Indicates serious mischief at work Into the lungs. DOCTOR J.
