erty of tho holder.
GLINTS FROM THE DIAMOND.
Gus Schmeltz says that whenever Cham
berlain pitches against a club he is man
aging he is a world beater. An old griev
ance is the explanation.
There has beeu a slight change in the
personnel of the stockliolilcis of tho Scran

good pitcher. Nichols has begun to show
signs of weakening, but Stivetts is once
more in good shape. The champions are
not, however, putting out (jlO.OUO these
uays tor butteries.
Allen, Philadelphia's captatu.has gone t
uis nome in UWo. Irre leuviug ne
stated that be had not made up his luiuJ
whothur or not to unit the diumond for

The pitchers who give few bases on balls
are the ones who are wiuuiug this year.
Nothing lessons the assurance of a bats

In the afternoon came at Providence last

The Philadelphia Press said of Mon
day's game: "Tho Scranton team in
cludes such wo'.l-tulued-oi players as
tiogHU, I'atcuen, Aiimey and llod?on.
Hognn is very fast on his feet and covers a
great deal of ground in tlio om field. If
he can bat at ail he should he able to size
up with speediest company next season.
Hodson, who is considered by Jack Milll
gsu, S:in Wiso and George Wood to be
the best pitcher in thp fitnto leagne, was
watched closely by the cranks, but even
considering the soft game ho was up
against be did not impress thorn as being
a wonder. Scranton won becauso It played
the better ball"
GENERAL SPORTING MOTES.
Articles of agreement have been for
warder to England for Frank P. Slavin to
sign for his fight with Jake Kilrain.to take
place beforo the Olympic club of Now Or
leans next month.
The tennis tourney now In progress at
Tuxedo park is a big event. All the cracks
of the country, including Hall, Footo.
Chare, Ilobart, Wright aud many other
sotod players, will compete for tho valua
bio prizes offered.
Monb irs promises to be as sensational in
tbe pacing world as he was at the trotting
gait. As a 2 year-old h. trotted ill 3.10k!
and as a 3-year-old he took a record of
3.11. He has won the only two pacing
races be started In and taken a record ot
2.17. He is auother specimen of the high
ly trotting bred pacer. His sire. Eagle
Bird, has a trotting record of 2.21. Ills
dam, Lady Hand, has a trotting record of
3.I8&. .lay Bird trotted in 2.3I and
George Wilkes in 2.23. Here is the host ot
trotting on both sides of tho Hue, He will
probably pace faster than he ever trotted.

OUR STOCK BANAGEB BY WATER
UR STOCK was damaged by water from the recent explosion and fire, which
occurred Saturday night, June 16, in the store of our neighbors, Messrs.
Davies & Griffin. The damages allowed us by the insurance companies permit us
to offer GREAT BARGAINS TO BUYERS OF CLOTHING AND FURNISH
INGS. All goods are appraised at 33 cents on the dollar less than cost to make.
There is no smell of smoke or fire about them and they are equally as good as be
and will last about 30 days, as the goods WILL and MUST BE SOLD as quickly
Here is an unequalled chance to procure High-class Clothing and Gent3' Fur
nishings at about one -third the wholesale cost price.
