Tho score being 4 to 7. This is tho second defeat handed Magrath, whilo Magrath took one. Howavor the games wore not walkav/aTs. Lofty Lang was In the box for the locals but could not keep the hard hitting aggregation from New Dayton from hltling him freely and it he had not. had good support the score �would not. have been as low as it was. Skinner on the mound for New-Dayton, pitched good ball but was relieved by Gorrill in the seventh, who burnt Bondy's hands up with his speed. IJondy behind the bnt for Now Dayton caught a good game. One of the oustanding features of the game was a sensational catch made by the Dreadrmught's third hasoman. Burinnd, when ho caught a Hue drive off the grass tops after a tremendous effort, falling over and � over after making the catch. We say) big league stuff, Yes. Gorrill's long hit over the loft field fence was an--other feature. Bigforg played a fast game at short for New .Dayton. Mercer, catching for Magrath, caught his usual fast game. The New Dayton club has been re--organized and several new faces will, appear in tho line-up. Gorrtll's Dread-: naughts should bo one of the strongest teams in thin part of the country. With an average of .339 George Sisler,. the youthful first, base star with St. Louis, has batted his way to second place in the American league, | 0wncr of Big Top Has Fired according to unofficial averages re- � " * leased Saturday. Tris Speaker, of Cleveland, forced into third place, is trailing two points behind Sisler. Although failing in bis attempt to break his record for consecutive hitting, Ty Cobb is safely out in front with .375.

Never a lover of the game which gave him fame and his fortune, Willard has purchased a circus, tired bis managers and now, presumably is ready to call it. off. There is nothing startling in the prediction that Willard is through, j He could hardly afford to risk pub-I lie censure through taking on some! He also j 0( the lesser heavyweights; and of j the few men available, there isn't aj one who wouldn't be able to give King Jess tho. light for his life. Eliminates the Syndicate The action of I lie champion in getting rid of Tom Jones and Jack Cur-Icy is commendable in a sort of way, j for it eliminates the syndicate which put the world's champion to work in' a circus instead of sending him out j to fight-which was expected of him by a public grateful for Willard's sue-j cess in bringing back the world's title | to the white race. Jess Draws Color Line Willard has declared there isn't a man of sufficient ability to meet him. However,, he said this before Fred FuKon succeeded In knocking out Sam Langi'ord-something no other man ever could ibO Willard long ago adopted a policy of no lights with the colored men-breaking the rule only once in order to win tho world's title from Jack Johnson. It is doubtful, just the same, if his best days would . have done him any good in a bout with the Bo:;ton Tarbaby, regardles;; of the great difference in their sixes., Chance for Fred Fulton j If Willard yearns for a few more. thousand dollars and n chance to re-j tire gracefully from the fight game \ for nil time the chance is jusrt beg-  gins for him. Fred Fulton looms as! his most formidable rival. Several' promoters are eager to stage the', bout. The public would go wild over j a twenty round go between tho pair, i And there is no valid reason for hold-! ing it off. Willard woulti confer a' favor by agreeing to the fight. CLEAN FIGHTERS!
