July "--Turning the tables is one of the favorite pastimes of the Watchmakers and Wednesday afternoon they pulled the trick on Deca- catur and walloped the Keedmen, t! to I. just to even up the defeat of Tuesday. HIT 'EM HARD. The Decatur representatives looked like a brush league aggregation compared to our "Wakes" and several Commies almost broke their backs trying to stop the balls that weiv knocked through the infield. Biltz in center should have had an assistant to aid him as he made numerous trips to the deep centerfield fence. SCORE OFTEN. John Henry Myers was nominated fcy George Reed for mound duty and John Henry received a terrible lacing. The Watchmakers garnered thirteen Mts for a total of twenty-three bases and scored in every inning but the eighth round. LELIVELT WORKS WELL. Bill Lelivelt worked for the locals End in the first six innings allowed but three blows. In the seventh and In the eighth, the Commies secured t.iree blngles, but could only shove one run over the rubber. Lelivelt was always master of the situation and never in real danger.

There will be a program of various evenU issued later and some sort of prizes given the winners of each.

But baseball magnates all maintain That night time is the time for rain. While summer garden owners say They'd rather have it rain all day. Th guy who's raising corn and hay HE wants HIS moisture night and day. And so betwixt'them all, you see. The Weather Man is up a tree. evening at the hands of the I. T. This victory boosts the I. T. S. Into second place. The clerks counted three ooints in the first round but lost out n the last Innings on account of weak- pitching, the final score standing 5-4 Virg Sanders was known and hailed by baseball fans from Dubuque to Springfield and his entrance into a grand stand or press box in any rival city was the cue for general shouts of recognition. His picturesque personality and his well known patronage of sports made him popular throughout the league, and his style of dress gave rival fans many minutes of delight. Virg was tickled at this recognition as a boy who cares for the world in general and likes to see his esteem reciprocated, and he made it a point to wear striking clothes whenever he visited functions or games in any of the league cities or'when he attended general league conferences. STORT OJs* SELF. In this connection Virg related a story on himself which was characteristic. "See what they said about this screamer." he asked one day after a Davenport writer had attempted a friendly panning upon his checkered suit of clothes. "Well, that boy should seen my first suit of store clothes and he could have written a book. The old timers will remember me as a barefoot and husky lunged kid on the streets of Decatur where I sold papers and otherwise disturbed the peace. My clothing and my voice in those day? were gifts of providence. All that was needed was, the 'shirt'n'pajits' that keeps a body out of jail, and they were mostly hand-me-downs from the family closet. SAW ONE HE LIKED. "Well, one day I dlsrovered t h a t I was a b e a u t i f u l boy. and that a freckled face girl had been looking at me, and at the self same time I discovered one of the grandest suits of clothes ever made in Cheap Charley's window He probably hat] carried suits before, but they hadn't bothered me. This article was a great institution and it had me edging up There was an election or something gnin^ on then, and one day I got rich from the paper buyers and made a b r e a k for the clothing store. I waiter! a r o u n d and gave that suit the twice over from every direction. It had real buttons on it. not a a f e t v pins, and it had a coat That was something new from June to October: HAD 50 CENTS "After a while a salesman who knew me asked what was the big idea and I spoke a. piece for him. I had exactly 50 cents In nickles and pennies, an.d it looked to me like anybody with that much money ought to have hearing. After a good deal of urging and orating he came down from his high place and t a l k e d business The result was that I walked out of the store with a -.transle hold on that suit of clothes and the clerk had my fifty. "You know, it took me exactly one year to pay for those glad garments and I paid on-e or twice a week, too I would put 'em on at night and be afraid to sit down Of course I had to get some shoes and stockings to go with the other sporty s t u f f , and that almost put me into the hands of a receiver, but at la»t I cut them all paid for. and believe me. thev lasted. I never was so dressed up in mv life!" ·WHY HE WAS LIKED. Virg Sanders made good from the bottom His own account of hjs l i f e in Decatur Is s u b s t a n t i a t e d by his many friends, who knew him when he yelled papers morning and evening on the streets. He was -always popular and he was always so.uare. He enjoy- every hour In the twenty-four that that might happen. He made money and he spent It, most of it in Decatur. He smoked Decatur cigars, wore Decatur clothes, even waiting to come home from a trip to purchase little things, and he otherwise gave this city the benefit of all deals that came his way. COFFIN COMPANY DOWNS LEADER Doolin Will Take Wills' Place On the Coffin Team. Decatur Coffin company downed the Leader Iron Works, 10-8. Wednesday evening.

ALLEGED THAT HE PERJURED HIMSELF Char!« Morrow Arrested t Three Boy* Taken In by Police. Alleging that he perjured himself in his testimony for the defense In the Catron-Brooks case In Justice McCoy's court, Charles Morrow was arrested Wednesday night on a warrant got out by Chief Allen. Morrow testified that he occupied a room adjoining that of the defendants, just across from the office of Justice McCoy on East Main street, and that the transom over his door was open so he could see what -was going on in the adjoining room, and that there was no disorderly conduct there at all. It is said that .Investigation showed he had sworn falsely. He was locked up. ' BOYS TAKBN IN. Three boys were taken up by Frank Torrence at Fairview park Wednesday night for stealing lunch baskets.
