The Merchants' of- fenr,? picked up steam in the last half but Hubbard held its lead all the v,*ay. . Sctdlcrs On Down What was expected to prove tlic feature contest of tho ni?ht turned out t^ be a one-sided triumph. Tlie Gas Hounds and Coninanv M went into (heir panic sharing tlic league Mad but the militia saw their chances of ending en top go term*? as the Hounds steadily piled up the points for a 23 to 13 tri- umDh. Ellis, the six fact and several plus center ol the pas quintet.'his running mate, the lanky Chistlan at forward and Von Alman at guard turned in Mine nifty work for the Hounds. Ellis led the scorers with 11 points. Wright of the soldiers was $.3c^nd with cipht.

RITZ THEATER f-Viuay and SahirAiy ASEBALL'S jlG6EST (ONERS PITCHERS OFTEN ask tho umpire for a new baseball because the one given them is marred or does not suit them in some way. In a close game with Detroit, Clarence "Shovel" Hodge, pitching for the White Sox, once- decided he needed a fresh "apple," so without a word lie turned and tossed the ball into the Detroit dugout. Runners on second anci third camo in and the umpires ruled that "Shovel" had made an overthrow which gave the runners two bases. Fortunately for Hodge,'however, the White Sox won the game, six to fiye, which saved his ears the v punishment of a manager's uproar.
