Riley The Clever Comedian Character. the Game Yesterday But Is Not Dismayed at Playing Against Hans Wagner Indianapolis, Oct. 13. Shortstop Owen Bush, of this city, the ex-In-i dianapolis -player who. has one of the sensations of the American league for Detroit, is not frightened because he is playing opposite the great Hans Wagner in the coming world's series. Wagner is conceded to be the greatest base ball player the world has ever produced, but Bush has friends and admirers .who believe he' will show spectators "at the world's series that there are oth- ers who also know how to play shortstop. Bush was 21 years old last Friday, the day of the opening of the world's series at Pittsburg. He smiles when asked that he will do before the countless throngs that will witness those games. Bush knows nothing about the crowd when he goes on the field. He simply plays all the baseball that is in him all the time, and it makes no difference to him whether there is an army or a handful of spectators. Indianapolis fans are pulling for De- troit on account of the presence of Bush and ex-Indian Eddie Summers.

THE BEST YET The Townsite of Barn well has been sur- veyed and is now placed on the market for the first time. Ail who are acquainted with this prosperous town and its bright outlook 'will recognize this as an opportun- ity for investment HERE'S YOUR CHANCE BARNWELL HAS A TRIBUTARY DISTRICT OF UNEXCELLED FERTILITY A BIG LIVE STOCK MAR- KET BARNWELL IS GETTING A LIVERY A GENERAL STORE A RESTAURANT Pittsburg, Oct. took the- lead in the battle now being wag- ed for the Baseball Cham- pionship by defeating Detroit 8 to 4 in the fifth game of the series at Forbes Field today. This gives the National champions .three victories to two for winners 91' the American .eague. pennant. The scene will shift to Detroit .again tomorrow, where the sixth and possibly the last game of the season will be played. The Commission today decided that a seventh, if needed, will be played in Garry Herrman flipped a coin; j President Ban Johnson of the Ameri- can League won and chose Detroit. The game was played with the i thermometer hovering between 35 and j -10 degrees above zero. A chilling, wind from the south west swept across the field. Despite the unto- ward conditions persons saw the game. A home run. by Manager Clarke, which scored' Byrne and Leach in front of him, turned the tide of vic- tory to Pittsburg in the seventh, af- ter Detroit had tied the score-at 3 to 3 by-scoring two in the sixth. Detroit had two "home runs to its. credit but neither came with anyone on bases. Davy first in the first inning at the bat, hit the ball., to the enclosure had been built "around the outfield for the over- flow. Sam Crawford "made' the other Detroit home run iii the eighth. Crawford's home run .nearly deprived Pittsburg of the services of the' bril- i liant Tommy Leach. Leach gave chase to Crawford's long hit and while running backwards at good speed, he struck the .enclosure fence. The impact of his body smashed the boards and lie shot over the low fence head first and turned a com- plete somersault. Presently he re- turned, however, to his place in the field apparently none the worse for his spectacular mishap. Adams, the phenomenal youngster, of the Pittsburg team, achieved the distinction of being the only pitcher to win twice in the series, by annex- ing today's game. Adams clearly outpitched Summers who worked the first.seven innings for Detroit, but he was lucky in hav- ing the team behind him hitting, as i he allowed the losers: four runs. Ad- ams allowed six hits, two homers, [two two-baggers and two singles, while Surnron-rs was hit safely ten times, including one home run and one double. Davy Jones' home run gave Detroit a run in the. first inning, but Pitts-' burg immediately tied the score be- i cause Summers allowed a base on' j balls with the bases full. A wild pitch by Summers allowed the sec- ond Pittsburg run to score in the. second inning, and another came at the third. The score remained 3 to 1 in Pittsburgh favor until the sixth j when Detroit bunched a single and a j two-bagger and aided by Wagner's bad throw scored two runs. Then came Clarke's home run in the seventh which gave the National Leaguers a commanding lead. Each team scored one more run in the inning. Sprague Out Again For the Harvard Team New York, Oct. won from Yale on the football field last year one field goal decided the contest. Kennard kicked, the goal, and he -did not fail to receive a great deal of credit for it from his friends and enthusiasts. Yet that game, between Harvard and Yale, was not a one man game by any means, in spite of the fact that Kennard was voted so much 'glory for his share of the proceedings There was VerWiebe, for instance, the Harvard full back; who, by en- did rushing, had placed The ball i.erir the Yale goal, where a drop kick might be successfully made, and who was compelled, to drop out of the game to .give Kennard a chance to kick. Ver Wiebe was not a kicker. There was still another young who, perhaps, saved the tLiy for Har- vard fully as much as Kennari tad for the Crimson. In the second half, when Yale had crowded down upon the Crimson team, until it seemed as if Harvard were almost on the verge of being panic stricken, it "fell upon the shoulders, or t'oes, of one young man to get Harvard out of danger. His name is Sprague. Dropping be- hind the Harvard goal line, as he was compelled to make the .kick froin be- hind the line to save his. team, he booted such a long punt toward, the centre of .the field that an involun- tary sigh of relief broke forth on the Harvard side of the gridiron as thev saw Yale badly ..set back after the Blue had made such a rush toward the Harvard goal. Sprague is out again for the Har- vard eleven this year and there ,is no icason to doubt ttiat he will be full back m some of the contests this sea- son. The only drawback to his worth as a player is that-he is quite light and cannot stand a full game where the play is hard and keen. Neverthe- I less his ability to punt is so good j that opportunities will offer where i Harvard will avail itself of his iices, and it is just possible that the chance "will be given to him to make such a kick of importance as he did I in the game against Yale last year.

Detroit..................................5.10 1 Pittsburg 4 9 I UMPIRE WHO FORFEITED GAME TO BE A REGULAR New York, Oct. the young Western League umpire, made such an impression on his only ap- pearance here when he forfeited the Philadelphia game to the New York Nationals, that President Heydler announces his intention of adding him to the regular staff of the Na- tional league umpires next season. The custom of players to nag and annoy a new umpire did not rattle young Mullen in the least, and when his caution to desist had been disre- garded he took quick action and for- feited the game.
