Allentown 27 C'J 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. Score; dCRANTON. R. H. P.O. A. E.

Um 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: SPRIXOFIELD.

The Season 'Will Be Prolonged One Week Only. 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 month. 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 Eastern league. BASE BALL BREVITIE3. Catcher Morritt. late of Pittsburg and Boston, has been signed by Cincinnati. Pitcher Hodson, the ex-Scrantonlnn, "will do," according to the cranks of Bean town. Hoover distinguished himself by bis bat ting, bnt he counterbalanced it by bad errors. Cahill yesterday made a star stop of what everybody thought would be a bit, and recovered himself in time to throw the runner out. Doencher umpired a very fair game yes terday and used good judgment. The aud ience commended many of his close de cisions, which were not bestowed with partiality. WHEEL WHIRLS. Bliss Is to ride a fourteen pound wheel.

IIow the, "Sexton lteetle" Labors to Bury Its Fellow Creatures. 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 no advance. 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 olas. Tho Moosa Is a Wonderful Animal. 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. "I was wau of a party av forty-six min as whit to ncrt' Newfoundland wid Con thractor McGonigul to open the mines there.

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.
