He seemed to strike them out whenever he was feeling that way. "Get one run this Inning," he said to his team mates in the twelfth, "and I'll strike out two or three aad we'll go home." GREAT RECORD. The team mates drove In the run, on doubles by C. Rushing and M. Augustine, and Goessler proceeded to strike out two of the three that faced him.

Death w a s due to heart disease, DIRECTOR OF BIG GOLF TOURNEY NAMED A\ niter Andrews, BloominKton Golf Instructor, Honored.

Saturday, Noonn, representing the Illinois Athletic club, finished about two-fifths of a second behind th« winner in the milo and about two seconds behind him In the two mile race. John Ray, Noonan's team mate on the Illinois Athletic club team, finished first In both events. The time for the mile was 4:21 and for the two miles, 9:46. UNDER DIFFERENT NAME. Noonan had trainer! only for the mile and was called on suddenly to take Cameron's place in the two mile. He took Cameron's number and finished second in the race. Noonan's name did not appear In the list of winners in the two mile because of the fact that he had to run under Cameron's name. Noonan's form In the mile was excellent but on account of his exertions in the two mile, which he had never run before, he was slightly exhausted, however he came in onlv a fraction of a second behind the winner, and In all prohabilty would have won If he had been fresh.

Quincy Xear Rocket Peoria Star.--A rumor to the effect that both the Quincy and Danville owners are willing to throw up the sponge and toss their club Into the bands of the league was current both in Peoria and Bloomlngton last night, but could not be run to earth. Quincy denied it and Danville could not be reached at a late hour. However, Tearney*s office in Chicago reported that there was nothing to the story. East St. Louis, Rock Island, Gary, Ind., and JoHet are cities willing to accept a franchise, although East St. Louis would have to be waived as to territorial rights before a club could be placed there.
