Notes of the Game.
Hausman made a nice pickup of his first
chance, but fielded miserably after that.
His arm seems to be weak. He hit twice,
but la alow on the basea He haa a touch
of malaria and will probably be sent home
soon to wait for next season.
Clementson stole second in the sixth In
ning, but Umpire Toman missed It, calllns
The Colts have (leaned 40 hits- already
this week. 10 of them yesterday. The Bee
total is XI.
Cruikshank. the leaning; Colt batter, has
gone hitless for two games.
Bloomfield allowed only seven hits, .ut
he walked two men and hit another. His
support was disheartening, but he kept
plugging away and (he "break" cava the
victory to the Colts.
Dusjdale is hot after an lnflelder. In ad
dition to coins after Keller he made an
effort to secure Ward McDowell, the Celt

The final of the Tavern "Steak" and

The championship pacing sweep
