In the doubles, the Decatui men showed g i e a t lorm, each game being closely contested, a gieat n u m b e r of them running to deuce befon being decided. The sets were undecided until the close of the fourth. COULTER STRONGER.

GUJBURG TAKES BOGEY. Galesburg won the a n n u a l 46 hole Attendance at Games Reach 80,000. to ROWLAND IS ELATED PeorSa and Decatur to Finish One and Two. According to Peoria papers, the total Three-I attendance for the year in that city will he c!ose to the 80,000 mark. This is as It should be in Peo- ila. Baseball is being given better support there this season than in arty :h**i year In Three-I histoiy. ROWLAND ELATED TVIth the season only half over, the attendance has been over 40,000 Need- is to sa 1 -, Manager Claience Rowland highly elated and he is planning to nake his permanent home in that citj Ml Feoria needed waa a TV i n n i n g team w a k e n interest in that citj HOW THEY'LL FINISH. O\er m Feoria they are saving t h a t the finish of the Three-I race will be as follows. First--Peoria Second--Decatur. Here m Decatur we say that the order will be re\ersed There is no doubt but that Decatur was greatly strengthened by the deal in which Shortstop Conger and Pitcher Holland came here. Conger is easily the. best shortstop in the Three-I league, bar none. It is' worth the price of admission alone to see him handle the hoppers that go d o w n the short field. IS BASEBALL MAD. According to a Decatur man who was in Peoria yesterday, that town is baseball mad. xBus ! ness men turn out to the games In largo numbers. The women are also good fans and turn out to the game EX-I.-M. PITCHER MAKING GOOD Vaugrht Striken Out 15 Men In One Game for SInskogee.
