GENERAL BASEBALL NEWS OP THE DAT
The borne team again defeated the Wash
ington club yesterday in a Tcry one-sided
game.. Miller made a home ran, and Per
son was knocked out of the box. Tener
shnt Boston out Garfield was released by
the local club yesterday.
When the home ball team get a hold of
anything like marks they make as much of
it as possible. Mercy is not their quality
at periods of that kind, but they bang
away between lite and death as if another
opportunity would never come again. Yes
terday the Senators were knocked, down
and jumped on; not only jumped on, but
pulverized as if tier had been underneath
a forge hammer. Mr. Person will probably
have quite vivid recollections of the oc
casion as he was unmercifully battered out
of the box. There was slaughter and no
The weather was extremely threatening and
not more than 00 or 300 people were present.
"What the crowd lacked in numbers, however,
they made up In enthusiasm. There was plenty
of inducements for the spectators to become
excited, the most prominent being Miller's
home run hit ovor the left Seld fence. The
midget as a home run hit is becoming some
thing of a chestnut. His hit yesterday, how
ever, was made when two men were on bases.
This feature is unusual as our big thumps have
generally been made with nobody on the bases.
Outside the batting there were some inter
esting features in the game. One of the most
noticeable was the remarkable base running of
sukdat's slick work.
The game opened as if it was going to be a
very close and clean one, and Sunday com
menced by taking the most daring chances.
Howe and "White played well, and Galvin
pitched a very good game. There was little or
no confidence in the old sport winning, but be
deceived everybody by his effective speed and
It is a long time since a more yellow game
was put up in this city thin that of the Sena
tors yesterday- They couldn't well have played
worse and there was some excuse for the col
lapse of Person. In the sixth inning ix runs
were made and not one of them was earned.
Up to that point Fersoo pitched a cood game,
but he seemed to become Careless; so much so
that he ought to have been called down once or
twice. Mack made only a moderate show be
hind the bat and was sadly oil In his throwing
Sunday started the game quite briskly. He
hit a liner into middle field for a base, and.
aided, by a passed ball, stole second. He went
to third t a passed ball and scored on Car
roll's long fly to Hoy. After two men were
out in the third inning. Snnday reached first
on a wild throw by John Irwin. He stole sec
ond and then pilfered third and scored on a
wild throw by Mack to third. Carroll got his
base on balls, but Rowe went ont at first.
Runs became plentiful in the fifth inning.
Deacon led off and banged out a nice single to
middle. He got to second and third on Car
ney's wild throw to second of Sunlap's
grounder. Galvin struck out and Dunlap
stole second. Sunday then knocked the ball
toForson and the latter throw wild to first
and Dunlap and White scored, Sunday reach
ing third on the mistake.
MIILEB'S BIG IIIT.
Carroll then thumped out a good single to
middle and Sunday scored. Rowe got first on
a fumble by Wise and then the midget loomed
up. He got himself set as if intending to knock
something like the pyramids over. He hit the
ball and hit it hard. It was exceedingly hit and
went sailing over the left field fence amid tre
mendous cheers. Betkley and Kuehne were
each put nut at first.
White again led off when the sixth inning
was started. The old man evidently had his
eye on the ball, as he banged it out again into
center field. Dunlap's sacrifice advanced
White a. base and Galvin cracked out a scratch
single between first and second bases. Sunday
hit to left for a base and White got home, Gal
vin getting to third. Carroll got his customary
base on balls and the bases were full. Rowo
then let people know of his existence by send
ing out a corker for three bases to center field.
Miller rapped out a single -to left and Rowe
scored. Miller stole second and Beckley con
tinued the terrific fnsllade by sending out a
single to left and Miller got home. Kuebne
flew out to Hoy and the Deacon reappeared at
the plate for the second time during the in
ning. THE FESTIVE OLD SPOBT
banged out a two-bagger to left, sending Beck
ley to third. Dunlap, however, ended the big
inning by going ont at first.
The thumping received by Person during
the inning was so great that he was retired to
the bench ajid Sullivan went in to pitch in the
seventh Inning and did very well. Only two
hits were made off him. One was a lucky two
bagger by Galvin and tho other a single by
Bnnuay. In the ninth inning, with White ont,
Dunlap got bis base on balls, reached second
nnGalvin's sacrifice hit and stole third. Sun
day's bit to right field sent the run home.
The visitors made their first after two men
were out. Beecher reached first on the out of
Hoy and cot to third on singles by Wise and A.
Irwin. The bases were now full and J. Irwin
knocked a grounder to Dunlap, who hesitated
with the ball in his hand long enough to allow
J. Irwin to reach first, and Beeeher scored. Iu
the second inning Carney led off with a single
hit and Ferson reached first on a fumble by
White. Two sacrifice hits sent Carney home.
After two men were out in the sixth inning
Carney got his base on balls and so did Ferson.
A wild throw of Miller's advanced Carney to
third. Hoy then knocked out a double to
center and Carney scored. Following is the,

unable to find the ball to-day when at bat and
were worse off In the field. Balls that the out
field would generally pull down proved to be
hits. Tener pitched a steady, winning game,
while that of Clarkson was freely hit by the
Chicagos. Farrell's base throwing was one of

Eesults ol the Pullman Segatta General Sportlag
The Grand Circuit races at Buffalo were
concluded yesterday and rain spoiled the
sport. Ketch trotted well, and Ed Annan
won a great pacing race. A Pittsburger
won a heat at the Pullman regatta. There
was some good racing at Saratoga.
rSFICIAt. TXLXOBAK TO THX SISTATCILl
Buffalo, August 9. After three days
of excellent sport, the conclusion of the
grand circuit meeting was greatly handi
capped by the unpleasant weatfler of to-day.
This morning it threatened rain, and after
a brief shower a strong wind came up
making it much too cold for comfort at the
driving park. As postponed races are
always unsatisfactory it was decided to go
on with the programme, and about 1,500 people
came out and shivered in the grandstand seats,'
while the camp followers that mako up the
talent were nothing daunted by the weather
and were present in full force.
' The card contained only two regular events,
tho free-for-all trots being off for want of
starters. Rosalind Wilkes was not ready for a
race, Thornless and White Stocking were lame
and Clingstone's entry was a blind one, so Sey
mour Belle alone remained. It did not take
long to decide the 2:33 trotting class for the
black stallion Ketch was so mnch taster than
his three opponents that the race was good ex
ercise for him, and he jogged home in each
beat, making a record of 222 in the third. Con
sidering that Ketch trotted In the teeth of a
high wind and was slowed up in tne last quar
ter, it was apparent that he could have gone
FASTER THAX 2 .-20
under favorable conditions. The stallion is
named for the Flower stake at Rochester next
Tuesday, and his ewner hesitated about start
ing him this afternoon. Kentucky Blanch and
the little stallion Poem had a fight for second
money, but the latter was unsteady and the
daughter of Kentacky Prince got to second
place in each heat.
The 2.17 pace occupied the rest of the after
noon, and after eight beats the stout little
veteran Ed Annan was the victor. It was not
till the sixth heat that the son of Dauntless got
In front, but ho stayed there after that. It
grew dark when tho last beat was called, and
some of the other heat winners would have
preferred a postponement.
Between heats Budd Doble drove Johnston
to beat his record. No one expected him to
come near 2-06. but the wonderful stde
wbeeler had all his speed, and after going to
the half In 1:05, came home in 1:03J, making
the mile in 2:08J, just Maud S' record. It was
a great performance for a day like this. C. J.
Hamlin decided not to drive his pair of mares
against time under the bad conditions, but
there was time between heats of the pace for
any number of specials. Summaries:

A CAT IN THE WELL.
A Dos There Also, Both of Them Trying to
New York Sun. J
Last week there was a very hot night. I
heard the chain in the well in the yard
make a noise as chains do in wells where you
draw water in a bucket on one end and a
weight on the other end. J, got out of bed to
see what the matter was with the well, as
the chain did not make as mnch noise as if
a person was drawing water. Well, sir, I
was surprised when I opened that well
frame of lath work. There sat my dog on
the weight of the well, as it is a square
block, and in the bucket sat an old red cat.
They seemed to me to not be surprised.
I shut the frame and went in the house,
and watched that cat and dog out of the
window near the well, and saw them play
teetor-tautor up and down that well to keep
cool until just d&ylight.

HOW TEA WAS DISC0YEBED.
They Have Fuel Once More.
Howe, Brown & Co., have started their
mills again. The Philadelphia Company
yesterday reconnected them with their gas
mains. This is the mill stopped for two
days on account of scarcity of gas from the
Park Bros.' Natural Gas Company.

Accident, Like Many Other Things of
Advantage to Idea.
Tea came into use almost by accident.
Some Buddhist priests going on a mission
ary expedition from Northern India to
China, took with them the dried leaves and
also some cuttings of an indigenous shrub
which was said to have the power of correct
ing any injurious properties in the brackish
water they might meet with on the war.
The decoction thus made pleased the mis
sionaries so well that they continued, as a
matter of taste, to drink it after they reached
China, and introduced it to their converts.
They also set about planting the precious
shrub, and, although it did not thrive so
well in Chiua as iu its native Assam, be
coming smaller both in stem and leaf, it
was so well liked that it soon formed the
foundation of the favorite beverage of all
China. Thence it was brought to Europe.

every degree. And it is only ot late years
that Assam tea has come into the European
market, to be looked upon rather suspic
