1 THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-WEDNESDAY, JULY 30, 1902.
The News of
THE BALLOON WENT Ur
i And "Our Pets" Cnmo Home With
the Scoro 10-4 in Susquehanna's
Favor A Poor Exhibition of the
National Sport No Earned Runs
on Either Side O'Gara Was Soaked
Hard Enough Costly Errors by
the Crescents The Game.
Sitstiuchunna, 10; Crescents, 4.
This Is the tula of yesterday's game
in the town of the hills north of us.' It
'was a game that was not creditable to
' Susquehanna, while "the Pets" well,
they-bad an off day; a day very much
.off. (Honestly, ye admiring and loyal
rooters, they played sloppy ball
s-1-o-p-p-y. They must have been
afraid of the natives, or possibly the
creek no, the Susquehanna, Whitney
called It for It was quite high yester
day. ' '.Well, anyhow, as "Chuck" Connors
Would say, the day was fierce for er
rors, whatever caused it, and wo paid
the price a defeat. However, there's
. ' consolation in tho fact that It was only
'the first' actual defeat buncoes not
counted that we have suffered In ten
games. There's a day next week when
we'll have another go at Susquehanna,
'and on a diamond that It not like the
, camel-back railway at Atlantic City.
We expect that then the story will bo
of a different kind.
. As mentioned before, the game was
awful; the baloon went up early in
'the game and never came down.
i This applies to both sides, though
Susquehanna's errors were not so
'costly as ours. Some of our errors,
bad throws, for example, let in two
runs more than once, when the run
ner should have been retired, the runs
choked off and the succeeding batter
"prevented from scoring.
The detailed score tells the story
more effectively than a column of ex
planation. There was not on earned
run on either side, all the ten runs by
Susquehanna and the four wo got were
the price of errors. Any crank con
llgure out what a brilliant (?) game
both teams must have played.
Owney McAndrew pitched almost ns
good a game as O'Gara, despite tho
severe cold from which he was suffer
ing, which took from him Vila wonted
energy and ginger. The shade of dif
ference In favor of O'Gara can be seen
In the following comparison of their
'records for the afternoon: Hits Off
O'Gara, 11; strike outs, 1; hits, off
McAndrew, 9; strike outs, 1. McAn
drew gave 3 bases on balls and hit one
player, while O'Gara gave 2 bases on
This record shows that every man
that came to bat on Carbondale's side
hit O'Gara, with the exception of three.
They hit the ball hard, too; they went
in the air mostly, away out In deep
center, but were bagged by the Sus
quehanna fielders, who were onto the
rolls and curves and pitfalls and gul
leys of the Susquehanna outfield, and
could cover the ground without dan
ger of stumbling. Our hits, when we
did make safe ones, came when there
were no men on bases. 'When men
were on bases the hard slammed balls
were captured. Emmett and Cuff and
McHale pounded the ball to the ex
treme outfield, but they dropped Into
Emmett made . superb one-handed
catch of a fly in deep center, after a
run backward and upon a knoll.
Rosier made gome splendid throws
to home plate, which, however, were
lost. Hart made one peach of a catch
in right, while Gallaghy's lightning
work, assisted by McHale, effected a
dandy double play.
Taylor, of Susquehanna is one great
ball player; as fielder, hitter or base
runner, he Is It. His homo is in Chi
cago, and he is a member of a college
Schmaltz, while unquestionably a
fine player, did not shine in yesterday's
game. Pethick, at short, played gilt
edge, while Topping, Wright and
Keefe, the outfielders, won a good deal

King's black horse collided with a
man named Buckley, who was riding
The horse upset tho carriage, throw
ing Mrs. William King and son, Ed
ward, to the ground. Mrs. King struck
on her hend and was rendered uncon

ter considerable effort on tho part of
Dr. Kelly she revived enough to bo

Viewers Make Award.
The viewers who were appointed by

property at Sixth avenue nnd River

ceedings of tho "Cannon Ball" railroad

They find the value of the lot to be
$4,500, which Is said to be about $1,200
more than Mrs. GuugharPpald for it a
year ago. The amount fixed by the
arbitrators, It is understood, does not
cover a claim held by John Hansen &

PAIN IN JE BACK,
A Sure Sign of Kidney
Trouble. Dr. Kennedy's
Favorite Remedy will
Pain in the back la a never falling sign
of kidney disease ; niiothcr sure sign is
the condition of the urine ; If you have a
pain In the back then look to tho condition
of your urine. Take a glass tumbler and
fill it with urine ; after it has stood 34
hours, If it has a sediment, if it is milky or
cloudy, palo or discolored, stringy orropy,
your kidneys and bladder arc in a danger
ous condition and need immediate atten
tion, ortheconsoqucnccsmay prove fatal.
F. C. Wilcox of C59 New Britain nve.,
Hartford, Conn., says:
"I had a frightful pain In my back,
the result of kidney trouble. My
physician seemed powerless to relieve
mo. I determined to try Dr. David
Kennedy's Favorite Remedy; it
helped me wonderfully, nnd In a short
time cured mo completely."
Dr. David Kennedy's Favorite Remedy
Is the ono medlcino that really cures all
diseases of the kidneys, liver, bladder and
blood, rheumatism, dyspepsia nnd chronic
constipation. It Is wonderful how it
makes that pain in the back disappear,
how it relieves the desire to urinate often,
especially at night, and drives away that
scalding pain in passing watcrand makes
you well and strong.
