Late last night the boys who sleep In the John Pugh livery', in South Third street, were awakened by the sound of a horse trotting through the barn. Running out they found that a strange horse, a gelding weighing about pounds, a bright bay, about 12 or 14 years old, had trotted in at the front door, back through the barn, dropped under the bar at the back door without raising it out of the brackets, and dropped dead just outside the building. Who the animal belongs to or why it should have died as it did is the puzzle that the entire south end is trying to figure out today. Watched Circus Load. Hundreds of people watched Ring-ling Kros.' circus load last night preliminary to the trip to Waterloo, where they will play against .the weather today. The weather was perfectly Ideal yesterday, and scores of men and women. especially the younger people, watched with much Interest the work of loading the big wagons on the 84 cars comprising the special trains. A number of the performers stated that they hadn't enjoyed a more delightful day this season than yesterday in Cedar Rapids, and not a few commented upon the remarkable growth and Improvement of the city. Sailor Used His Fists. Charles Bekker, a teamster with the Ringling circus, left his wagon anil Went into a First street saloon while the show was being loaded last night, and before he left the place demonstrated to the satisfaction of a. half dozen men that he could use his fists to perfection. Bekker, who is a Norwegian, was formerly a sailor and claims that he was one of the beat boxers on the boat. When he entered the saloon last night a crowd of men began making remarks about him, calling him such names as "mulewhacker," "bullbeater," and other things not complimentary to his profession as a circus man, and he started In to clean out the bunch. When the police arrived Bekker had knocked down everybody that didn't run. having fought his way from the bar to the door and left a long list of black eyes and loose teeth In bis wake. He was locked up In the station over night, but was allowed to rejoin the show at Waterloo this morning. Chess Association Meeting. Chas. H.

It la at last authoritatively stated that Ruse Ford, the former Cedar Rapids pitcher, now with Atlanta, will go to the New York Americans, to whom he was recommended by Neal BaU, who .went to Atlanta from Cedar Rap id. Ball, who has proved the biggest. Sensation of the American league tnia rear, believes that Ford will make good. had recently told a Cedar Rapids frier that Ford's curves axe more puxsling ne Has seen in mm- mg W4i 3s- :Mpf!KK .... ., radar- Ranida fans will Also be Inter ested In knowing that Melnard Pfyl. young nrax baseman sold by Mgr. Hill to the New York Ajnerirshs last Year, has been recalled from Altoona by the Baltimore Orioles, to cover first base In place of Peter Cassldy. Aa long as Hal Chase is in the game Pfyl will hardly be used by New York, but he is bound to become big league timber. He is a faster fielder than Red Mullin, but not nearly as consistent a batsman. More Boquets for Pa. Springfield News: It is goodbye to Belden Hill. Today probably Is his last appearance In this city, as it is altogether likely that the Three-I will be made op differently next year, if there is any at all. The News can only echo the sentiments of the papers in other towns around the circuit when Belden and bis Bunnies have made their last appearance. They are gentlemen and there'is no team in the league that plays a cleaner game. It now looks like a whirlwind finish for the Rabbits and the Springfield fans are with them, as there is no danger of their overtaking the Senators. That man Carmichael. who joined the Rabbits at Decatur Monday and won his first game against the Commodores Tuesday, may bring Belden Hill a nice Plec.e of money right at the jump-off. It is said that both Cincinnati and New York had their eyes on him and it is quite likely that he will be drafted by one of the two. In Police Court. Police court was held in "relays" this mornin, the mourners' bench being entirely too small to accommodate the crowd of men who came to the city yesterday to sec the circus but could not resist the temptation to get drunk.
