Tim SCRA2TT0N TErBTTITE MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 27, 1894; BASE BALL Scraatoo Breaks Even la (be Series with Allentown. WON OUT IN THE NINTH INNING Springfield Takes Two Games from the Erie Blackbirds Providence Defeats Buffalo with Ease, and Wilkes-Barre Goes Down Before Syracuse Standing of the Clubs. National and State League Sum mariesBase Ball, Bicycle and Gen eral Sporting News. NOTHER week of (tie championship season in the Eastern league has passed. Providence is play inr in superb form and will finish tbe season the proud possessor of the li'netie pennant. Buffalo and Syra cuse are also putting up a stiff article of ball, the former in Rocond place and the latter in third position, seventeen points behind. It in quite probable that Springfield will finish in fourth plsee, as since her itmngthening by several of the old l'roy players ehe is putting lots of Bin der iuto hor play. Erie is also play ing well, while Scranton. for Ihn reason of its being organized so late in the Benson, is sur prising some of the old timers, even thtngh she is beaten in the majority of contests; and should she keep up the progressive work which sbo has been doing tbe past week, and with a little home encouragement, will compel tbe leaders to put on their best playing clothes to vanquish ber in future games yet to be played. As it is she is at present keeping abreast with the much lauded Wilkes-Barre aggrega tion, and the coming week should wit ness tbe home team move stoadily up ward and away from the down river brethron. Kelly's Allentown club is too far in tbe rear to cast even a shadow in the pathway of Scranton this year, The following table gives the per centages of tbsalutis, number of games won nnd lost by each club, and their standing in the league race up to and including the games played Saturday: Won.

The Locals Succeeded In Capturing Sat nrday't Game. Scranton played a good article of ball on Saturday nt the park and suc ceeded in taking a game from Allen town. Delaney pitched another fine game, holding Allentown down to eight bits. King Kt-lly did not appear in the game, Piteher Kilroy covering the first bag. Hcbs, of last year's Scranton club, covered right field for the locals ana did it well. He has been playing With Wilkes-Barre all season, but was al lowed to go because that club had too nany players under contract, The core: SCRANTON'. it, n. P.O. A. E.

Tbe Stars challenge any club in the city under !5 years of age. Duffy still leads the National league in batting, with an average of .434. Thomp son is second, with ,4'i8; Delabanty third, with .425, and Turner fourth, with .407. The players of the Philadelphia club, outside of Thompson, Delahanty and Turner, with batting averagos of ,800 per cent, and over, are: Cross, .39.2; Hamil ton, .170; Grady, .844; Cloments, .843, and H oilman, .327. ... Tbe Scranton club will play in this city all of this week. Today and tomorrow the Eries will be here; Wedneiday and Thursday, Buffalo will be our opponents and Friday and Saturday the battles will be witn Syracuse. Anson told Captain Comlskey the other day that be d(Anotl Intend to make a "4,gJiange f .m noit season. sir v sam the o the I better thov will cot. I don't thiuk it will help matters by making changes, and I'm willing to Btake my reputatiou that they will be in the hunt next year." Gleasou requested that he put in against St. Lonis on Thursday in order to Ret re vengiinpon Von der Abe. The Browns promptly knocked the Baltimore pitcher ont of the box, and Uleason's revenge is postponod for a time. Manager Cahill received word last even ing from Secretary Uetts, who in in New York, that Fielder Smith of the Lonis villes, bus accepted Sorantou's terms aud will report here for duty tomorrow. Ilea?, late of Wilkes-Barre. has not yet been signed, but may be today. Foutz expeon hU Brooklyn team to do much bettor work from now on. for in Kennedy, Bteiu, Lucid and Duib ho line four pitchers who ought to give a good account of themselves The Brooklyn team is a pood butting one, and with closer at tentions to team work and a little better base running Fnutz's men should have nothing to tear from any teum from the west. The fight the Baltimore clnb is making for tho pennant of the National leaKiie this season is one of tha most remarkable fights in the history of base bull, and shows what young blood will do when properly coached. Brouthers and Kobinson are really the only old-timers in the field, the other being youngsters picked up here ULd there. Keeler was not good enough for New York and Brooklyn; Brodio wus a Boston and St. Louis cast off; Kelley wus lot go by Boston; Jennings was turned down by Louiville; Keitz and McUraw wore lassooed from minor league company. This is the first season those men have worked together as a team, aad yet they have been in the hunt from the start nnd are now, when the stretch has been reached, in the front rauks and setting a faster pace than ever. They have dis posed of tbe oft-repeated assertion that they would weaken when the pace got hot, and seem to possess unlimited staminn. While it would be a violent surprlso to have the Orioles win the Hag, still it can not be denied that thoy aro dangerous every minute of the day. WITH THE WHEELMEN. Jliss McAllister, Ward McAllister's daughter, is an outhusiaBtio cyclist. She rides dally at Newport. James Micniiel, tho 17-yosr-old wonder of South Wales, expects to visit this coun try next season. An expert wheelman, in giving Iih opinion of Johnson as a racor, says he lacks judgment and rides only with his legs. The prizes offered for the tournament to be held at Anbury Park the latter part of this month are tho finest ever given at a yclo meet ia the East. A mammoth building is being erected in Lawrenceville, this state, for indoor sports. Its principal feature will be a ten lap bicycle track. The building will be completed this full. Here is soni good advice from Dr. F. M. Cooper, of Emporin, Kan.: "Sit erect, ride moderately, short of fatigue; it is healthful aud you will live long. Stoop over, take long, exhaustive rides, aud you will die young.-' A writer says in London Truth: "All the children of the kins of Denmark cyclo. I hear that the czarowitch owes the great improvement which has taken place in his health to cycling. Some yeurs ago he was very delicate and thought to have a weak heart and a nervous systom rather out of gear. The symptoms which save uneasi nebs have disappeared." A Toronto man has just invented a great novelty iu the shape of a pneumatic tire skate. The Invention is called tho bi cycle skate, and it stands about ten inches high, having ball bearings, a spring rest for the feet aud ankle supports, each weighing only three and one-hulf pounds. The inventor claims that ho can travel on the asphalt pavement at the rate of forty miles an hour. The necessary steps have bnen taken to patent the model, and a company is being formed to handle the patents throughout the world. GENERAL SPORTING NOTES. Butterflies enptured about $18,003 for her owners by winning the Futurity stakes on Saturday. Frank McLnin, "the Cuban Wonder," lias accepted Edward Warner's chnllengo for a fight at 143 pounds, give or tnke five pounds. The National Horse Show association has issued the prize list for tho annual ex hibition, which this year takes place on Nov. 13 to 17, at Madison Sipiare Garden. The classification is most complete, there being 100 different competitions, for which prizes aggregating J0,003 are of fered. Minoofca. Mrs. James McJIahon, of Sayra.

Toward nightfall, as the light crows carce and dim, the pupil of the eye in creases to Its greatest size bo as to catch and absorb all tho rays it possibly can. Thus a cat's eye will grow large at dusk, and those of the night loving owl are so made as to produce a greater convergence of the rays of light, so that in faint light. It can distinguish objects closer. It is as great a mistake to suppose that cats can see in the dark, where no light is, as it is to suppose that under tbe influence of pas sion or excitement man's eyes have the power of emitting light. It Is Impossible, as has been proved beyound a doubt by many experiments in uttor darkness. True, a cat's eyes have a wonderful brilliancy, but that is due to a "onrpot of glittering fibers" called the tapetum. It may be to sonio extent in virtue of this glitter that they possess their alleged power of fascinating small birds and other creatures, though we certainly need not suppose that the terror and inability to move evinced by the victim are duo to tbe power of the cyo alone. Fear of the ap proaching monster, whioh instinct tells them is hostile to their life, is fully as para lysing ns any eyeglitter. Chambers' Jour nal. While cyclones and tornadoes are differ ent phenomena, the former appear to give rise to the latter. Tornadoes almost al ways break out, if at nil, on the southeast erly outskirts of a cyclone. Russian girls conceal their finger rings amid the corn in tho barn, and then bring in a hen to peck the grain. She whose property is first unearthed is supposed to be the first to marry. The average salary of ministers in the United States is under WOO a year, and rery much more 1s required of those who receive $400 tb,on of tb.ose who receive H000. vm-- What Makes the Svrellinz? Opinions have differed as to the cause of the swelling aud pain resulting from a gnat or mosquito bite. Some have main tained, In accordance with what has always been the popular belief, that effects of such niagnitudo could not be produced without tho introduction of a poisonous fluid, though they have fulled to show that any apparatus exists which would be capable of completely fulfilling such a function. Though this poisonous fluid la itself con jectural, a purpose has been assigned to it, namely, that of rendering the blood more liquid, so that it may tho more easily be sucked up. And that some such function would have to be assumed is tolerably cer tain, since the poison could hardly be re garded merely as an implement of offense, und consequently an advantage to itspos sesser. It seems scarcely open to question that, apart from some such function for the poison as above, the insects could far more easily obtain the blood they covet and far less precautions would be taken againat them if thejdid not produce any painful results and tl.us rouse the hostility of their victims, and that, therefore, from that point of view, a poison could not be an ad vantage. If, therefore, a poison exists, its function must undoubtedly be to facilitate the drawing of tho blood and not to serve as a weapou. Influenced by the anatomical difficulties above meulioned, other observers have maintained that no poisonous fluid is in jected, bus that the laceration of tissues produced by the six minute, acutely point ed and in some cases barbed organs which constitute the borer is sufficient to account for the inflammation and itching. This hypothesis, again, is not without objection. It would appear that tho insect sometimes experiences difliculty in getting at the blood it desires, for deep perforations of the skin may bo made without drawing blood, and then no swelling occurs and lit tle paiti is felt. This certainly appears a formidable difliculty iu tiro way of the lat ter explanation. Kuowledge. The Itcst or Hunters Get Lost. Stories are told of guides who have dropped sticks into streams to find which way they were flowing, and when the sticks went iu n different direction from what they thought was right, disregarding their plain testimony and avowing that the stream was running up hill. Other stories are told of hunters who have been found frozen to death in the dcptlis of tangled swamps With compasses picked to pieces because they would not point the way tho bewildered man thought they should, and so were plainly out of kilter. These stories, though individually unre liable, lear witness to a general truth. The fact is, that it is the easiest thing in the world under certain circumstances to be come "turned around" in the woods, nnd no one is exempt from this failing. Old hands know and understand this fact. It is only the tyros who do not, nnd who ridicule thoso who own up to having been lost. And when these scoffers go Into the woods themselves, nine times out out of ten there come.s a night when they do not turn up at camp. Then there is rejoicing among those who have borne their arrogance, for it is tho turn of these to crow, uud they who laugh last laugh best. Iu a flat, wooded country with the sun ob scured and no compass to guide him the best woodsman Is apt to lose his way. Un der less unfavorable conditions the same thing often happens from preoccupation. Interest in hunting or fishing drives away nil thought of one's course till suddenly he is rudely nroused to find that iie is in an unfamiliar wilderness with no notion of the way out. Forest and Stream. Mind Iteadlns fur Boys. Harold Morse's father belongs to a soci ety for "psychical research," and the child has beard a good deal of conversation on the subject of mind reading. His mother is afraid he "thinks uud understands too much for a child of his years." His father, however, is not nt all alarmed, and a few days ago repeated to Sirs. Morso a remark of Harold's in his "children's mind class," which was cer tainly well calculated to allay her fears. Harold had collected the class much, against the will of several members of it, who would have preferred to remain out in the yard on the doorstep. "Now, you wait hero a minute," said he, and presently ho returned with suspicious ly bulging pockets. His father, in the hall, listened for what would come next. "Now," said Harold, appearing before tho class, "you mustnll think hard. How many apples have I In my pockets? The boy that guesses right can have them all, but of course he'll divido, for there are just enough to go aroundl" Youth's Compan ion. Lettuce Matured by Electricity. Among the bulletins of the agricultural experiment station of Cornell university is one that gives a very interesting account of some experiments made on plants with a view of determining the influence of tho electric light upon their growth. To that eud a greenhouse was divided into two equal parts by a tight board partition. On one side the plants are left to the ordinary conditions of growth, but on the other side the vegetation was treated to the sun light by day and to the electric light by night. Tho results of these experiments showed that the use of the electric light at night hastened tho maturity of the plants, and the nearer they grew to the light the greater was the acceleration. Lettuce thus treated was sold two weeks earlier than its neighbors on the other sido of the parti tion, although both were planted at the sanio time. Equally successful results were oiit-incd with other vegetables. Philadelphia Record. The Eui'le Screams. American Official (Iu China) This mob bing of missionaries must stop.
