eighth Innings today and won from
IProvldenoe by the-narrow margin of

Buffalo, July 7. Buffalo lost to Syra
cuse In a free hitting game today. Kll
roy amd McGtnmls were the opposing
twirlers. While the latter was touched
up more freely than Kllroy, the salt
towner was much too free with his
bases on balls, almost every one of
which resulted In a tally. Of the hits
made by the home team, seven were of
the scratch variety and two bordered
on errors of the fielders. With one run
behind in the eighth the bases was
filled with Buffalo men. One man was
out and Lewee was expected to score
the winning run. 'He went out on an
easy- pop fly to Eagan, and Dowse was

Great Work of the Provldoaee Club la the
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Providence, July 7. Tho moat pecu
liar game of the season was played here
yesterday when Providence defeated
Scranton by the work that was done In
When the second inning opened De
laney seemed to get rattled, and the
more Irovidenc hit him the worse he
got. Siven slnsles and a two-base hit
were the result of the battlnff work,
while the four bam on halls and the hit
by pitched ball aided Providence to
make tho eh-ven runs.
After the second inning1, however, De
laney was praotU-ally unbattable and
Providence made no more runs, buit aa
Scranton could not the'.r hits from Lov
ctt count the victory was an easy one.

Slugging Match at Rochester.
Rochester, July 7. A slugging1 match
was enjoyed by 1.400 spectators yester

Canad:ans hit Harper as he has not
been hit more thin two or three times

have been so large, however, if the

Syracuse, N. Y., June 7. Gannon, the
pitcher recently secured by Syracuse,
was a complete puzzle for Buffalo yes
terday. The Stars knocked Herndon
out of the box in the sixth Inning and
they had IRtle difficulty with Fournler,
who wis substituted. Fournler was a
member of the defunct Gloversvllle
team. The Stars played an errorless
frame and ran bases in brilliant style.

By defeating the Pirates Saturday,
Boston goes from third to second;
Philadelphia moves up from eighth to
seventh, and Brooklyn drops from
sixth to eighth. Brettenstein pitched so
well for the Browns yesterday that the
Orioles' lead in first place is reduced
so that Boston may get first Vlace to
day. Anson's men,, by defeating Cleve

Reporters Are Not Good at That Kind of
By the score of 11 to 12 the Reporters'
Base Ball club was beaten by a club
composed of printers iSaturday after
noon on the James Boys' grounds. The
game lasted Severn Innings, and was
close from start to finish; It was lost by
the reporters through poor base run
ning. The brilliant battery work of Brown
and Owen, for the reporters, was the
feature of the contest, and It required
the united efforts of tho players behind
them to lose the game. Crossin and
MeUuIgam officiated In the box for the
printers and were wild at times.
Aside from the battery work -the fea
tures of the game were the Inlleld work
of Dennis Kelly and T. J. Duffy, and the
heavy batting of Thomas Owens.

Into a state of Insensibility, to cure their
Ills while they remained In the torpid state
and eventually to thaw them back to con
solousness and tho full enjoyment of their
pristine health and strength. One would
say that It would be rather easier to get
subjects to submit to hypnotism than to
this "freeslng" process, however 111 ihey
