VEItY XAiniOW ESCAPE
Erie Came Extremely Close to Batting;
Oat a Victory In the Ninth,
It was a contest of errors on both
sides, and tbe spectators groaned at
the bad plays. Soranton had the game
bagged until the ninth inning, and tbe
Erie sluggers came to the bat with the
score 18 to 4 in favor of Scranton and
batted ont eight roni, coming within
one of tieing tbe seore.
Cahill's men went down before Me
Glnnis in one, two, three order in
their half of tbe first two innings. In
the third Inning Smith led off with a
liner toward second base, which was
thrown wild to first, allowing the run
ner to reach third. Qaarles wont out
on a foul bit and Manager Cahill was
next to the bat He smashed tbe bull
on the nose for three bases, and Smith
scored. Hoover hit for a two-bagger
and brought in Cahill. The rest of the
men died on bases. The Eries scored
a rnn on the second an a three bagr
nnd an error. In the fifth inning
Scranton inoreasad its lead by bringing
in another run. Bat when the Erie's
went to the bat they tied tbe score.
Cahill was tbe first man to the bat in
tbe snatch running and he struck ont.
Tbe rest of the club did not do any
thing to the Erie pitcher bat hammer
tbe ball all over the field, scoring eight
rone. They made another rnn in the
seventh, making a total of 13 scores to
their credit. Although the Erie club
gave their pltaher yellow support, still
Cahill's men hit the ball bard and tap
ped Mr. MoGinnis, who recently held
them down to ven scratch hits at
Erie, for 18 basehits.
Qaarles pitehed a splendid game un
til the ninth inning and then he went
to pieces and almost lost the game,
wbieh would have bsen tbe case but for
the big lead Scranton had. Up to this
time not an earned rnn had been se
cured off Qaarles and the four rnns
credited to Erie bad been presented to
them through errors,
In tbe ninth Tinning Shearon led off
with a three bagger end scored on
Lally'i bit. Fields made a two bagger
and Lally floored. The hitting con
tinned nntil eleven men had batted and
eight of tbem bad scored. Fields came
to the bat a second time and Lally was
on second with two ont. A bit wonld
have tied the seore and very likely
won the game; but Mr. Fields sent a
short foul fly down to Lehane and the
disgusted audienee sst nail for home.

pire Connolly was ronndly hissed when
he called the game here today at the
end of the sixteenth inning. Tbe oause
he assigned was darkness, though it
was only a few niinntes after 5 o'olock
and there was plenty of light to go on
with tbe game. It was planned to
play off two gams this afternoon, the
first of them being a couponed game,
bnt not one was fiuishsd. The game
is the record gams of the aeasou for
length. It wss well played on both
sides, but SDnngfield was getting the
advautage at the close and would prob
ably have won in another inning, an
Warner was disabled. Seore:

EASTERN LEAGUE MEETING.
The Season 'Will Be Prolonged One
New York, Aug. 23 A special met
ing of tbe Eastern Base Ball league
was held this morning at tbe Fifth
Avenue hotel for the purpose of ex
tending the season of tbe league so as
to permit the Yonkere elub, formerly
the Allentowns, playing against the
Giants on tbe letter's grounds. Tbe
sexson of the Eastern leaene has here
tofore terminated the middle of Sep
tember, but recently two-thirds of the
clubs petitioned the executive to ex
tend tbe soason till the end of the
This wss found impracticable at to
days' meeting, but will probably be so
arranged next year. As it is, tbe
schedule was re-arranged to Rive the
Yonkers men a go at the Nnw Yorks on
the Polo ground on Sept. 7 The fol
lowing day the Yonkers club will play
two games at Buffalo and continue
their swing around th circle, phying
in Providence Sept. 17 nnd IS, and
winding np tbe season Sept. 20 and 21
at SpringQeld, Mass.
It will thus be seen that the season
has been prolonged only one week and
that mainly for the pnrpoao of bring
ing ''King Kl" and his men to the
fore. President Powers said today that
tbe present season bade fair to be the
most successful in tbe history of the

The two beetles were soon at thoir post.
They first ran around the body of the dead
fish uutil they met. Then they seemed to be
conferring for a moment. Next they passed
under the body nt opposite sides and began
to lift. The head rose slowly and then
both the toilers could be distinctly seen nt
work. One was lying' on bis back with
feet in the air, lifting the upper part of the
llsh from the ground. His mate was just
behind him, standing upon her hind feet,
her fore feet, anteunra nnd mandibles
wedged between tbe scales of the fish above
her while she was thrusting forward with
all her might to push along the tlsh as her
mate lifted. All in vaiul There was still
Again there seemed to be a conference.
Then the head rose again, lifted as before;
but when it bad reached its utmost height
she reared herself upon her hind feet,
braced herself so us to receive upon her
head the whole weight and thus set free
tlmtither beetle, who ran around behind
the fish, turned his back to it, worked him
self backward under the fan of the tail uu
til ho was ulmoYit concealed from view,
then buried his orange colored nutennie in
the earth, lmuiped his back, gave one reso
lute thrust and away went red throat,
"lit tle wife and all."
The movement hud been so sudden that
his companion was taken quite uuuwares,
but though sbo was thrown some distance
with the weight of the whole IIkIi upon her
she did not socin ut nil diseomlited, but
was out and fp on her feet ngain, evident
ly delighted that more thau an inch of
progress had been made.
Thus, inch by inch, these two patient
toilers carried their load, sometimes lifting
ns I have described, sometimes tugging
with their horny forceps, sometimes pusli
iug and thrusting with every posture aud
method. In a half hour they had mude
less than & foot of progress.
Two hours later, when I returned from a
fishing jaunt aloug the stream, they had
reached the edge of the path, where there
is a steep dccliue for eighteen inches to
ward the stream, and below it a soft bed of
sandy loam. As it wus the hour appointed
for luncheon, and my comrades bad not
jet come, I waited to witness the burial, or
ut least the steps toward it.
In a few minutes tbe edge of the steep
declivity bad been reached. One beetle
was on his back under the fish, pushing
with all his might. The other was in front,
tugging with her teeth. Suddenly, us the
veryu was reached, the fish toppled; a min
iature uvnlancho was set in motion, und
down to tho bottom went tho three, tbe
hh ou top, the two sextons underneath,
Tho body being now in place, excava
tions for its burial were immediately be
gun. Each of the beetles passing under
began to dig away the soil and to thrust it
backward with the feet. Soon, all around
the body, nt tho distance of an inch or so
from it, reminding one of the hasty in
trenchment about some military camp,
rose a little embankment of finely pul
verized earth, which had been dug with
the strong forceps that served as picks,
nnd thrown back with the six horny feet
that supplied tho place of shovels. The
body gradually sank ns tho embankment
6lovly rose, the head lingering longest
above the original level.
I returned from time to time to watch
the process of the burial. When the shad
ows of evening were falling, nnd I re
turned for the last time, a portion of tho
head was still visible, all the rest being
under the earth. In a few hours more the
little red throat was lying three or four
inches under the ground, as neatly awl
carefully buried as if some man had done
tho work. T. D. Witherspoon in St. Nich

I encountered an interesting person the
other day who, when he works, has chargo
of a natural history collection. I surmiso
that he ofiiciatcs as janitor, for he knows
more different things about natural sci
ence than anybody that I ever met, and if
he chose he could astonish souie of the pro
fessors with his attainments. For exam
ple, "The tiger is a very sthroug animal,"
says he, "and his tail is thesthrongest part
of him. Wid one whisk of bis tail he can
cut a man in two at the waist. The moose
isasthrong animal too. You can guess
how stlirong he is when I'm tellln you that
he sheds his horns every winter, und as soon
ns ho has 'em ou the ground he ates 'era.
Tink of the teeth ho has in him to nto his
own horns! But he's good 'ntln himself,
tho moose is.

wan av thim moose, an we caught him, an

Insects Have Thousands of Kyca.
The eyes of Insects present several pecu
liarities. Often in the same individual we
shall find two sets of eyes, the simple and
the compiund, these latter having a large
number of minute hexagonal facets, each
of which is in reality a cornea; nnd the
marvel Is thnt every single facet belongs
to a distinct eye with pupil, iris, lens, all
complete. The number of these corneas
varies very considerably. While the ant
possesses fifty only, tho ordinary house fly
has 4,000, butterflies have uo fewer than
