TWO GAMES TO-DAY.
The Local Team Will Tackle the Bostons
Twice This Afternoon.
Yesterday's rain will undoubtedly result In
favor of the baseball cranks. There was no
game yesterday, although as usnal several
hundred peonle were decoyed over to the
parks. There may a time come when the pub
lic on a doubtful day may be given a pointer as
to whether or not a game is to go on. So far
Pittsbnrgers have been very badly left in this
respect and yesterday afternoon four carloads
of people left Fifth avenue after 3.30, the occu
pants were all baseball enthusiasts and when
they were on the cars the decree had gone
forth that there would be '"no game." A bet
ter arrangement of announcing the fact of "no
game' would certainly be a great improve
ment to Pittsburg.
However, there will be two games to-day for
one price of admission, therefore the public
gets tho best of it. Two games from Boston
ought really to be worth the price of a single
contest. The batteries are extremely at
tractive. In the first game Galvin and Fields
will represent the home lot and Clarkson and
Bennett will be there for the Bostons. In the
second game Morris and Carroll and Madden
and Kelly will be the batteries. The first game
will start at 2.15 and the second game will start
five minutes after the finish of the first game.
SPANKED THE SPIDERS.
The Giants Slake a Few Hits and Beat
Cleveland. June 2L The poor fielding of
the Clevelands and the hard and timely hitting
ot the visitors gave the game to the Giants to
day. Sprague pitched his first game on the
home gronnds and did fairly well, but his sup
port w as miserable. The score:

A GREAT CONTENT.
The CMcns-os Beat the Phillies in a dot
Chicago. June 2L Chicago won to-day's
game by outplaying the Phillies at nearly every
point. Krock, who has been kept on the bench
ever since the club left New York, pitched one
of the prettiest games witnessed upon the home
grounds this season. Gleason was a trifle
erratic to begin with, but after the third inning
Chicago made but four hits off his delivery,
but Mulvey's error on Thompson's throw from
right in the ninth allowed Burns to score the
winning run. Fogarty's work was of magnifi
cent order at center and has probably never
been equaled on the Chicago grounds. Curry,
as usual, was badly off in his decisions, greatly
to the disgust of the spectators. It was gener
ally commented that if Anson had sent Krock
into the box more frequently, that the Chica
gos would not now be among the tall enders.

SPOKANE'S LUCKY OWNER.
Interesting Featnres in tho Life or Noah
Noah Armstrong, the owner of Spokane, Is a
man 66 years of age. He Is one of that quiet
kind of Robert Banner millionaires, who may
feel like giving any sum for a race horse, but
not over $40 for a suit of clothes. The gentle
man is of sturdy build, and would to-day be a
hard man to handle. His face is not particu
larly striking, and. with his gray beard and
heavy cane, he might easily be mistaken for a
well-to-do farmer. A meerschaum pipe takes
the place of a cigar, and his plug of tobacco is
returned to tts pouch with as much precision as
would be shown by a dude in placing a gold
watch in a bucKrkin case.
Mr. Armstrong is a man who has no turf
secrets and alwajs runs bis horses to win. A
long price is always procurable about his horses,
and his kind of an owner Is the one for the pub-
.11. .w wai-ji, m miu iiurBea oi lesser quality
heavier-betting owners bring their animals to
the post at a short price. Mr. Armstrong was
born in Canada, but his father was an Ameri
can citizen, and young Armstrong came across
the border at the age of 14. In 1S42 he entered
the United States army and served in the Mex
ican War. afterward settling in the far West.
He first became interested in mm hnrso.
1880, when he bought of a man named Hudson
once the manager of the stock farm oi M. H.
Sanford, where stood such stallions as Mon
archist and Virgil ten animals. One of these
was Tom Plunkett, .tnd the horse coming good
was sold to Uassidy, of St. Louis, for $i000,
making the nine remalnlne animals cost Arm
strong but $3,000.
As Monarch turned out well, the racing ca
reer of the owner of Spokane has been one of
the few wherein the passion tor the thorough
bred has not resulted in financial loss. Mr.
Armstrong has some peculiar Ideas of training
quite in accord with the common sense now
used in the training of athletes. His idea is to
give the animal plenty to eat and plenty of
rest: light, slow work, and the most patient
handling. For a boy to twitch his norse's
mouth in a tit of anger is certain to work his
immediate discharge. In a race the whip can
be used but lightly, the spur only as a reminder
to the animal, and no welts or bleeding sides
are ever seen on this ownsr's horses.
"I claim they run as fast as they can, and no
one shall butcher them for me," is thf expres
sion of the owner of the Kentucky Derby win
ner. PACED ONE HEAT.
Protestant Kate Beats Duster Out at Home-
The pacing race for $1,000 a side at Home
wood Park yesterday between Mr. Fleming's
Duster and Mr. McKntght's Protestant Kate
was commenced. Owing to tho bad condition
of the track, however, only one heat was paced.
Protestant Kate won in 2 43K making tbe first
half in 1:25.
There was any amount of excitement, as there
was a large and enthnsiastic crowd present. Mr.
J. Stoer was timekeeper, and Joseph Wilson
and Sara Moore were judges. In the heat
paced Kate went off with the lead, but went off
her feet. She soon got down and went as
steady as a clock to the end. Duster made
many breaks, but was outplaced and was beaten
by six lengths. Rain began to fall heavily, and
Mr. Wilson postponed the race until Tuesday.
Mr. B. Matthews drove Duster and William
Dawson drove Kate.
There was considerable wrangling regarding
the appointment of the judges. It was stated
that Mr. Moore had money bet on the result,
but Mr. McKnight allowed him to stay, as he
was confident tnat Kate could beat Duster as
tar as a man could shoot a gun.
Yale Wins the Race.
New London, Conn., June 2L The eight
oared, four mile straightaway race between the
Yale and University of Pennsylvania crews
was rowed this evening over the Thames river,
and was won by Yalo by one and one half
lengths. Official time, Yale, 23:50; Pennsyl
vania, 23:55. A stiff breeze was blowing up the
river against the crews and over the i first three
miles the water was quite rough. The interest
in the race centered almost wholly in the exhi
bition eiven-bv Yale as a means of indc-lntr her
chances in tho big race of next Friday against J
Harvard. The comments on the result vary J
SOME SPORTING POINTERS.
Hnllihan Tnlks About the Fighters nnd
New York, June 2L Jack Hallihan, the
well-known sporting man and backer of pugi.
lists, of Ban Francisco, and proprietor of the
Cremorne Theater, arrived in this city yester
day on his way to theTaris Exhibition. Halli
han is one of the best known sporting men of
the Pacific Coast, and he is, without a doubt,
the bigeest plunger on fistic events. He won
32,000 when McAutlffe defeated Frank Glover.
He wagered $2,000 to $1,500 when McAuliffe de
feated Mike Conley. He yon $7,000 on Peter
Jackson by the latter's two victories over God
f rey and McAuliffe, and he lost $2,000 on the
Warren and Havlln fight. On the Cardiff and
Jackson flcht be wagered $3,000 to $1,200, and
when Corbett and Cboynski recently lought in
San Francisco. Hallihan was in Chicago, and
he telegraphed to his manager to put $1,000 on
Choynkki, which he lost. Hallihan is stopping
at the Stuyvesant House. He was with Mike
McDonald, of Chicago, Al Smith and Johnny
Reagan yesterday. He called at the JPolice
Gazette office, seenred Kilrain's colors, and re
ceived letters of recommendation to several
well-known sporting men in England. Halli
han met Batt Masterson at Denver, and the
latter informed him that he was going to the
Kilraln and Sullivan fight, and said he had bet
$2,500 against $2,000 bn Kilraln.
Hallihan will sail on the City of New York
for England, to go tho Paris show and return to
England, and it is more than likely be will en
gage some sporting specialties for his theater
and probably try to influence- Ted Pritchard
and Jem Smith to accompany him to this
In regard to the Dempsey and Lo Blanche
battle Hallihan said that be does not think
Dempsey is as good a pugilist as be was when
be was recently on the Pacific slope, and that it
is not two to one that Le Blanche does not win.
Hallihan is n ell acquainted with Searle, the
champion oarsman of the world, aniexpeers to
meet him on his arrival in England. Said Hal
lihan: "O'Connor is a flyer and.no doubt the
fastest oarsman in this country, but Searle is a
wonder and a class ahead of Beach in the lat
ter's best day."

rSrECIAt TZLEURAMTOTirE DISPATCH.
Louisville, June 2L Mr. Davidson got
home at midnight last night. He says that he
does not know what he will do with
the Uub, but he settled up with all the
players to-day. He says the reason he
didn't pay them off while East was because it
has always beeu customary to pay the boys
when they get home. He has asked the Asso
ciation to aid him financially, and he does not
seem to be In a hurry to sell out jet. He had
a talk to-day with M.r. George Rieger, who had.
made him an offer, and Mr. Rieger said to l
"Davidson wants more for the clnb now than
when he went away. His reason for this re
markable dem'and is that the club will be play
ing again at home. I telegraphed him an offer
the day of the Association meeting. It was of
course smaller than what I had previously
made him and this morning be was inclined to
give it the laugh. He sajs he wants to sell
and is only waiting to get his price. Ho
says he has an offer from another syndicate
that is represented by Bob Brown, of the
Courier-Journal. Davidson seems to overlook
the fact that the persons who take hold of the
club will have to put money in it to make it a
Co. I am almost tired of fooling with the
thing, but 1 will have one more conference with'
my syndicate before dropping it",

A NOBLE ANCETEr OF JUDGES.
February 13, ISi she married Benjamin
Morgan Brackenndge, son of Judge Henry M.
Brackenridge and grandson of Judge Hugh H.
Brackenrldge, all chronicled in history as
pu blic men of note. Judge Henry M. Bracken
ridge was Jadgefor 20 years in the U. S. Dis
trict Court of Florida, spending his vacations
at tho old homestead at Brackenridge station
on the West Penn Railroad, between Tarentum
Her husband, unlike his ancestors, did not
enter public life, and lingered along In delicate
health until 1802, 27 years ago, wnen he died,
leaving to his widow the full management of an
estate of over 1,600 acres, which had been re
duced by sales and gifts of land from about
2,100 acres owned byhim and originally 3,500
acres owned by tbe first ancestors, who settled
in tne country about 1828 and were all Ameri
cans tbrougb and throngh.
Mrs. Brackenridge was-canal to the task and
went to work with a wilk A sou. H: M. Brack
enridge, now the only one of the name left, and
daughter. Cornelia.the late wife of Erastus Mr..
Kelvy was left her to cheer her in her work.
Tbe Brackenridge estate in former times com
prised nearly the whole of tbe sites of Taren
tum avenue and Natrona, and it was her one
motto to continue the work of her husband's
ancestors, to build up the towns and by wise
gifts induce manufacturers to select that sec
tion for business investments.
TWENTS" CHUBCHES AS MONUMENTS.
Twenty church spjres in Tarentum and Na
trona now point "heavenward, standing on
ground donated" by Mrs. Brackenridge. To her
the residents of Avenue owe the establishment
in that place of the glassworks of Chalmer,
Taylor fe Co. and Richards & Hartley, the

To her Tarentum owes its Brackenridge
avenue, which after passing throngh tbe town
winds along the very brink of tbe river for a
mile and a halfT ope of the beautiful drives of
modern times. It was ilrit built for her private
drive and afterward sold to tbe township. It
is truly an engineering feat. Tbe banks were
built up of solidmasonry and hundreds and
hundreds of loads of cinder filled in. Where
the road is the middle of the river once was
and there it will stand, and countless genera
tions drive along its roadbed and admire the
As a resident of Tarentum said last night,
bcr deeds of charity are countless, her friends
the populace and her mourners the people of
the towns she and her husband's ancestors
While attending to beneficent objects her
estate was by no means neglected.
A HOME AMONG HOMES.
' Her home is one of nature's own retreats,
the old homestead nestled half way 'between
the towns of Tarentum and Natrona. A grove
of stately oaks screen the house from the
West Penn tracks. A winding path,
past rustic scats, through an Inclosed flower
garden with a fountain in the center brings one
to the house, a quiet and homelike farm house.
Toward tbe river another winding walk lined
with flower beds leads to the river, bank and to
tbe boulevard alone its brink, is truly a beauti
ful place, a home of homes. Her taste for the
beautiful in nature is seen on every band, in
tbe trees her band bad directed the planting
and everywhere all about. ,
She caused to be planted and cared for a
ma-miflcent nursery of ICO acres, counted tbe
best in the State, and ier tenants and thoe
she bad to deal with in different departments
in the management of the estate, never had any
cause to complain.
For the past five years her son has managed
the affairs of the estate, andit is through his
management, backed by the stock held by Mr.
Brackenridge, that Tarentnm now has her
She has a brother, Optician William E.
Stieren, of this city, and a sister, Mrs. Nisbit,
Next Sunday at 2.30 P. M. she will be laid to

TO preserve the richness of color or delicacy of tint of your sum
mer dresses, make suds of hot water and Ivory Soap, allow to
cool until lukewarm, then wash your dresses in the solution. Ordi
nary soaps contain too much alkali, which in a short time bleaches
the color and destroys its beauty. Prof. Silliman, of Yale College,
says, "The Ivory Soap can not injure the most delicate fabric."
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the ' Ivory;"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities'
of the genuine. Ask for Ivory" Soap

A STARTLING FACT.
The diseases of the kidneys and urinary or
gans are much more common than are gener
ally supposed. Beginning by a weakness in the
back, accompanied by pain, which at first may
be so slight as to cause little or no inconven
ience to the persons afflicted, still as tho dis
ease progresses there are presented a chain of
symptoms which eventually lead to
graver difficulties; there is an in
creased pain in the small of the back
and in the region of the groins, high colored
urine with brickdust sediment, scanty or
copious flow, with frequent desire and pain Id
voiding It. Not only do the organs themselves
become organically diseased, terminating in
gravel or stone in the bladder, diabetes or
Brisht's disease, often ending in that most
fatal condition, convulsive ureainla, but are
one of tbe most potent causes of rheumatism
and dropsy. The physicians of the Polvpathic
Institute also treat successfully all forms of
skin and blood diseases: also clubfoot, tumors,
rupture, ulcers, varicose veins, piles and de
formities. Please remember that the physicians of the
the Polypathic Institute are not traveling
doctors, but are permanently located. They
have been established in Pittsburg for nearly
one year, and hundreds testify to cures re
ceived. Office hours, 10 to 11:30 A. x.. 1 to and 6 to
