ALLENTOWN TOOK ONE,
It Wat a Wall Playsd Gams of Ball,
Scranton nnd Allentown gave a Gne
exhibition of ball playing at the park
yesterday afternoon, and Scranton lost
because the locals coald not hit Kil
roy's curves into safe spots in the field
or bunch the few hits they did get.
In only oue inning did Sfiranton
score, and that was 'in the sixth wheii
Johnson led off with a triple, Patchen
following with a double and Rogers
and Phelan with singles. On these
hits two rniis wore scored. Another
one might also have been placed to the
credit of Scranton, but for the foolish
L'Hse running of Rogers.
Allentown scored two rnns in the
third, one in the fourth and one in the
filth. Qunrles was the pitoher for the
locals and had good command of the
ball. lie also watched the buses cloaly,
It took but one hour and thirty-five

The action of the Pittsburg club in re

much surprise. Ulasscock was released

The attendance at the weekly mati

yestsrday afternoon was even larger
thau usual. Tho commodious grand
stand was filled with ladies and their
escorts, and the enclosure in front of
the stand contained scores of hand
some traps and carriages.
The racing wns of a high class,
nil lot the ruiasraen showing lnerensed
proficiency, and many of the horses are
track-wise by this time. The additions
that theso facts make to the interesting
nature of the contests and the enjoy
ment of the spectators are noteworthy.
The scoring yesterday was less fre
quent and tedious than usual, and the
horses were sent away in better order.
The Bystem of starting the horses in
eaoh race in successive heats was ad
hered to nnd again proved a sueoess.
The first race was an easy one for
T. II. II , which was entered instead of
Grover by Joseph Hull. The winner
was protested before the second heat
on the ground that it did not belong to
a club member. It was charged that
tho horse is owned by Thomas H. Hull
and no denial of the allegation was
made. Mr. Crawford, the judge of the
course, took no action upon the charge.

Tho third race possessed moro inter
est than its predecessors from the tact
that three heats were necessary to d'i
cido it. Fanny Hlair showed up In
rare form in the first heat, none of the
others being nble to extend her. Frank
II. made a bold bid in the fir.it quarter,
but n bad break settled !iia cnancs.
The showing of Duke and Daisy was
The second hent was started with
Fanny having docid.idly the worst of
the send oft'. Frank LI. went right out
nnd was never bonded. Fanny wont nt
him hammer and tongs from the bead
of the stretch but, although she wore
down the lead inch by inch, she could
never quite get up. Pet Hand was a
decided surprise, coining up like a
ghost in the Ust hundred yards and
finishing right on top of the leaders.
Pet Hand receivsd lengths the worst
of the send-off in the third beat, and,
hnd she been at all well placed, would
have won with ease. As it wns ahe

win by a scant head. Dnke cutno very

the first, both his opponents breaking
badly. When the word was given for
the necond heat. Abigail went out lilce
n bullet. Rounding the turn at the
eighth, she was a length to the good.
This was increased to three ut the
quarter and she appeared to be moving
well within her limit. Jack was doing
his level best in the meantime, but
that was not ns good as the mare's.
Stvldenly ii brown huad was tos3d up

dashed into the lead. Charlie Hill was
guiding his horse with steady nerve
and excellent judgment, when a shout
of "Abbiel" "Abbiel" caused him to
look around. There at his whel was
the brown whirlwind again. Inch by
inch crept up the blood red nostrils.
Now they were beside him; now at
Jack s saddle, and now with the wiie
but a few Btrides away, the pair swept
along nose aud nose. Steadying his
liors for one last if ort, and timing
that effort beautifully, Charlie struck
his horse once, twice smartly ucrosi the
tl.iuks. The good horse responded gal
lantly, and the race wns won by a
nose in the good time of 1 13.
KEELEY BEATS MAGNOLIA
The match race between Keeley and
Magnolia did not come up to exneota
