El! IE HIT THE HALL.
Scianton Couldu'D Follow Suit and Lost
Yesterdny's game of ball at fltbe
park between Scranton and Erie was
very business like. There was ;no
halting or stopping from beginning to
end. Erie started in to win and ac
complished its dire purpose without
mush trouble, because it wis able to
hit the ball with greater fretdom than
the locals were.
Two costly errors by Smith and one
by Johnston alio gave the Eries an im
petus on their road to victory.
Altogether, Donovan, who twirled
for tbe locals, was found fourteen
times. Of these hits seven were
doubles and the remainder singles. He
struck out two men and gave two
bases on balls.
Herndon did great work in the box
for Erie, the nine hits Sorauton se
cured being singlos and several of these
were of tbe seratoh order.' He struck
out only one man and gave but one
base on balls.
RUNS CAME IN TBE SECOND.
The only runs that Scranton made
were sscured in the second. The first
inning opened by Cahill going out
from Smith to Field, Hoover retiring
In the same way. Johnson secured a
tingle and the side was retired by
Patchen flying out to Shearon in right
Affairs took a brighter aspect in the
leeond. Hess reaehed first on Smith's
error and Diek Phelan made a force
hit, Hess reaohing third on Herndon'g
error in an effort to retire him at sec
ond. Phelan stole aeoond and scored
with Hess on Lehane's single. On
Smith's force hit Lshane was put out
at second and Smith died at the same
place on Donovan's force bit. An error
oy Nicholson enabled Donovan to
reach seoond and he ssorcd on CahlU's
single. The latter was retired while
trying to steal soeond.
Those three runs were all that
Mr. Herndon was on his mettle, was
given fine support and the consequence
was that in several innings the totals
were retired in one, two, three order.
In ao inning after the seeond did
Scranton have more than five men at
ON THE OTHER SIDE.
Erie's sluggers had a much nicer
time loeatiog the sphere as it came
tearing through the hot, oppressive at
mosphere. In the first inning Nichol
son and Smith were retired on flies to
Johnson and Hoover. Shearon made a
double and so did Lally, the former
scoring, fields retired the aide by fly
ing out to Hess.
In the seoond the visitors were retired
one, two, thrse, but tbe third inning
was more interesting, Herndon began
operations by knocking out a double,
Nicholson singled and Herndon scored.
Smith went to first on balls and ad
vanved to third on Shesron's single,
Nicholson scoring on Lally 's force hit.
Smith was eut off at the plate from
Cahill to Patchen. Fields singled and
Gunson did the same, Lally coming
home. Fields was retired at seeond
nnd Knohne went out from Donovan to
Lebane. The visitors did not score in
the fourth or fifth, but began operation
again in the sixth.
AN AWFUL INNING,
Gunson, the first batsman, was re
tired from Smith to Lebane. and then
Kuehne drove a hot ball toward Smith,
wnicn i ue lacter lauea to hanaie. A
fly by VanDvko was dropped by John
son after a long ran to the fonoe. and
on Smith's error on a drive from Hern
don s bat, two runs were seared. Two
singles and two doubles during the re
mainder of the inning allowed Erie to
score four more ruas.
During the remainder of the1 game

The demand Is becoming more general
daily that tbe use of tbe big mitt be for
bidden to all except catchers and first
basemen. It is not bsso ball when holders
are allowed to use a big glove to capture
fly balls. They might as well use a net.
There isn't much science when the in
lieldur bats the ball down with bis big
glove and easily picks tbe ball up nnd
throws tbe runner out This practice
should bs stoppod, but It will not be done
until another season. Sporting Life.

A FIGHT WITH GUERRILLAS.
Incidents of a Journey to California
Through Mexico In 1S40.
On tbe plana of Jalapa the hostile feeling
against the Yankees had its first outbreak.
A great crowd gathered about the red
shirtcd horsemen as wo rode into the piasa
on Sunday, and a rush was made by the
mob to dismount us and drive us from our
saddles. ' But a vigorous charge promptly
mado against the mob with threatening
revolvers drove them back and gave safe
escapn to the hard pressed , horsemen.
Through the villages of the country parts
we were received by the senoras and seno
ritas with kindness, but by the males with
frowns and threats, and with the signifi
cant gesture of a finger drawn across the
throat In no place were wo safe from at
tack except in groups which commanded
safety and. respect. To them in their ig
norance we were still Yankees and sol
dados. One night, a little way beyond Jalapa,
our entrance into one of their walled towns
caused great excitement; a general alarm
was rungou the cathedral liells, messengers
rodo out in haste to alarm the surrounding
haciendas, and natives flocked into the
town, two or three mounted on the back of
each mule, armed with escopcttcs. But
we remained close inside the strong gates
of our hacienda, and, the excitement sub
siding, we were allowed to leave without
an attack early tho next day.
In camping for the night sentries were
stationed and pickets were posted, and the
animate were secured with lariats inside
the picket line, but sometimes, when guer
rillas abounded, in the center of the camp.
Once only did these lad rones make an open
demonstration. We were in a section of
country covered with low bushes, in which
jackrabbita; wild turkeys and other game
were present. No towns were near, and,
fooling secure, a large part of the company
was scattered in pursuit of the game, hop
ing to secure enough to fill our camp ket
tles on our next halt, for we had been some
days on short rations. Tho Mexican wom
en were always friendly, and presently
some were met on tho trail, calling pyt to
us: "Ladroncsl ladronesl" and p'trtlrtlng
forward on our path. At this our strag
glers were called in.
The robbers were a large band of well
mounted and well armed men, and had
filed, across our road in the bed of an ar
roya or dry fit roam. To fight as a troop of
cavalry, with camp equipage and cooking
utensils dangling from our saddles, or to
wait a charge from them, would have been
sure defeat. So I dismounted a part of my
troop, and in platoons, at double quick,
charged toward thagucrrlllas. Evidently
a fight with the hated Yankoes in red
shirts was not what they desired, for, as
we came within short range, their leader
gave tho word "Vamosi" and away they
galloped down the ravine" belter skelter,
aud wo saw them co more. We certainly
were not a handsome crowd at this time.
At National Bridge we saw the wreckage
and the unburkd bones of that battlefield,
and looked with wonder upon the fortified
height that guarded tbe entrance of the al
most perpendicular heights up which Colo
nel Harney's dismounted dragoons worked
their way with the help of bushes and
props, and to which they clung in the face
of a sweeping flro from the Mexican bat
teries on its summit, which they captured
with a rush, turning their own guns upon
the artillerists as they ran down tbe oppo
site size of the hilL We feared having to
force our way over this bridge, but were
Upon the heights of Cerro Gordo we
camped for our noonday meal. Upon its
central battlefield, where Santa Anna
mode his most stubborn fight, we kindled
our carapflras, and, dipping water from its
sunken pools covered with slimy green
vegotation, wo drank our coffee under the
shade of the same trees where the desper
ately wounded lay to die, glad of the lux
ury of that stagnant pool to quench their
thirst. It was the best those heights af
forded amid that deathly struggle. All
around us lay scattered uncoflined bones,
and ghostly skulls looked down upon us
where in mockery they had been secured
among the branches of the trees, and every
where earth and trees and broken arma
ment gave silent witness of the awful
struggles of our little army.
AH tho way up the heights for miles the
pine trees from the roadside yet obstructed
the national road as they had been felled
to hinder tho onward march of our soldiers,
while from point to point the Mexican
troops aud batteries were rallied for an
other stand. We left tho historia spot
with a triumphant three times three and
with uncovered heads in honor both of our
dead and our living heroes. Colonel A. C,
Ferris in Century.
The Moon's Shape.
Referring to the fact that photographs
of tho moon, taken at full, give that body
an egg -shaped appearance, with the small
end pointing toward the earth, a recent
writer argues that this goes to prove that
planet's nonglobular shape, as was indeed
to be expected. According to this writer's
reasoning, matter at the surface of the
moon is acted upon by two important
forces the law of gravity would arrange
the matter in a globo around the center,
the moon alone considered, and the attrac
tion of tho earth, being always exerted in
tho same direction relative to the moon's
center, would constantly draw all fluid or
plastio matter to the side next the earth.
The sun shines not less? than 833 hours
consecutively on any given point on the
moon's surface, and it is not propable that
water on the surfaco would remain frozen
under Buch continued sunshine, so that the
fluid parts of the moon's surface, obeying
toe constantly acting force that generates
the tldus on tho earth, have long since
gathered themselves together on that side
of the moon nearest the earth. This idea,
it is claimed, is not inconsistent with any
thing developed by tho shadow of tho moon
in eclipses, nor with any known fact. New
