Although rather unpleasant food to swallow, it is better for Bloomington to h a v e ' w o n the game than for it to iavc been Davenport. Peoria or Springfield. The Danville team lost an exhibition game Monday to the Kansas City American Association team, score 10 to 4 The double header scheduled between Danville and Dubuque for Sunday so as to give Danville an open date, was moved up to Tuesday. As Springfield has a half holiday Wednesday. It has arranged to play Its Thursday game with Quincy on Wednesday and making Thursday the holiday, for the two teams. They will play a double header Wednesday, Yesterday's victory was the ninth straight for Big Chief Bluejacket. Hilllnger had another t!g day at Quincy Monday. He copped out a- home run, a double and a. single and did much toward defeating Dave/port. McXeely caught the game and got a. single out of it. Quincy Herald--With Gray and Ehr e 'ott the team has two first class catchers and if necessary other changes will be made to give Quincy a winning team. Ehrgott brought with him hie first baseman, Salllard, but after giving him a tryout. In the Saturday, games he was turned loose. Salliard is an old tinier, but is still but the Three-I league Is a dif- feient proposition than the I.-M., and Quincy needs hitters more than anything else. Frank Donnelly insists that Blue- Jacket is the grandest pitcher that ever performed in the Three-I league and has been preaching this doctrine to every big league acout that he has seen this season. Some club la bound to grab him. TEl PUYSHT SKILFUL PLAYERS IN TENNIS TOURNAMENT PHil Miller Favorite in Singles -- Busher and Gauer , Expected to Star. Maroons Lose Game to Stonington. Pana. July 7.--Manager Plass ot the Dubuque Three-I team will bring his bunch of Hustlers to Pana Wednesday an off day in the league, to play the Pana Maroons. The Maroons were defeated at Smith's park Monday afternoon by the Stonington team, score, 5 to 4. This is the second defeat at the hands of Stonington this season. Pana did not score until the eighth, when they bunched hits and put four runs across Smith, a Decatur pitcher traveling under an assumed name, was in excellent form and held the locals down to four hits until the fatal eighth. The score; R - H Pana . 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 4 0 -- 4 9 2 Stonington 010010120--5 6 Batteries--Hawker, Stewart, Knep- ping and Peters; Smith and Jones. DECATUR~GRAYS WALLOPED TWICE According to a. message from th Warrensburg baseball club, that team defeated the Decatur 6rays In two games of * doubleheader, 2 to 0 and 2 to 1. Boughn pitched a great gams for Warrensburg in the flret game striking out nineteen men and allow ins but one blow. Dlckerson's home run with a comrade on the pillows gave Warrensburg the game. Warrensburg comes to Decatur n gunday; to. flay. t.h» Ofays here, BUSHER UPSETS TOURNEY DOPE W. C. Buaher upset the dope in the tennis tournament this morning when he defeated Gauer oJ Morri- sonvllle, 6--3; 0--6; 6--3. Gauer had been picked by most everyone to come through to the finals and Buaher's victory is a b!£ compliment to his ability. W. Manning of Morrisonville, oldest player In the tournament, met Granvllle LeForgee the youngest player, in the first match of the tournament. It was an odd sight to see a gray haired man playing a youns chap In his 'tesns. Although Outclassed, LeForgee put up a good fight and showed that he was a comer. Manning was in top trim. He won, 6--0, 6--1. Odor defeated Baymiller In a close, hard-fought match, which 'waB featured by the incessant lobbing of both men, 6--3. 4--6, 6--3. The ball was repeatedly in play for Jive or six strokes. Busher's match with Gauer, one of the veterans of the meet, was the most sensational of the morning. Both men were in fine trim, and fought hard. Although Gauer defeated Eushev In the second set, 6--0, the games were all close. Both players hid strong serves. Gauer's cut bothered Busher for a while, but he finally got onto it. By his excellent showing against Gauer, Busher bids high for the f i n a l ? . Though the number of entries is not as large as was expected, the class of the players entered in the Central Illinois tennis tournament, which started play this morning at the Country club, ssures a splendid series of matches. Decatur players and visitors were disappointed to learn that W. H. Wiley could not take part in the tourney because ot a, death In his family Monday. HAINES IS MILLER'S PARTNER. Mr. Wiley's absence breaks up Decatur's champion tennis doubles team, composed in previous years of Phil Miller and Wiley, and will mean a harder fight for the local players to keep the cup here. Harry E. Halnes will take Wiley's place with Miller and they will form a fast combination to all comers. PICK MILLER TO WIN" SINGLES. Local hopes are also pinned on one or two other good doubles combination. Odor and Adams and Risley and Busher will put up a good fight. Miller, the present champion in the singles. Is expected to come through but he will find tough material In the mettle of the visitors and local players he will have to meet. · PARSON GREEN'B MISSIXG-. Two other out of town players who are missed this year are Leonard of Pekln and Greene of Peoria, ^the team which won the doubles cups last year. The preacher player, Mr. Greene was unable to come because of the death o£ his wife last week. The pairings for the singles and doubles follows: SINGLES PAIRINGS. Bernard, Springfield, vs. Adams, Decatur. Dey, Moirlsonvllle, vs. Denz, Decatur. J. Gushing, Assumption, vs. Bonus, Decatur. Gauer, Morrlsonvllle. vs. Busher, Decatur. H.

Adams-Odor vs. Cushing-Cushing. B'onus-Childs vs. Camp-Taylor. Elwood-LeForgce vs. Manning-Porter. Morrow and Partner vs. Pearson- Partner. Gauur-Dey vs. Rlsley-Busher. MANY BYES. In the singles, the first four men at the top of the list and the last four men, at the bottom of the list, draw byes. This makes eight matches in the first round a-nd aleo eight in the second round. In the doubles, the team at the top and also the team at the bottom, draw byes, making six matches the first round and four thft second round. Thftre will be thirteen matches in doubles and twenty-three matches in singles, a total of thirty-six matches which will assure tennis lovers plenty of amusement. Visitors are i n v i t e d to come and watch the play. W. MANNING HERE. One of the most Interesting players present Is W. Manning of Morrison- vllle, one of the famous team of theManning: brotlierc, who several years ago took away the fancy double cups. The elder Manning, they are both rather "eldlsh." was unable to come. His "younger" brother salj he was gettlns "too fat" for the game. LOVE FEAST. Mr. Manning 1 'arrived early Monday afternoon in his car a f t e r a. blow out on the way. There was a small love feast on the courts at the club when he ftllghtefi. "Doc" Adams, Odor, Risley, Halnes and several others gave him a-warm greeting. " · "I wouldn't have come." said Mr. Manning, 'but I saw that Dr. Adams, with hie bald head, had entered, and I came .up. in the. fcop.e ol p.utUpg: him MORRISONV1LLE TENNIS STAR Hurls Two Innings in Losing Contest New Tork and Philadelphia, divided a double bill at New Tork on Monday, the champion* winning the drat, 5 to i, and losing the aeconil, 7 to 2.
