Davenport defeated Burlington again yesterday through the superb pitching of Hollacher and daring base stealing of RoutcliSe and the brilliant fielding of Allen, and but for the errors of Strothers and Welch at most critical moments, would have ended the game with but one run to Burlington's credit. The best fea ture of the game, as far as the visitors were concerned, was the first ba9e play and the heavy hitting of Raising. The score was 5 to 4 . Harrington, the Dav enport catcher, met with a bad misfor tune in the seventh inning, the ball striking him on the little finger and tear i ng the ligament from the bone. He will ba laid off for two weeks. Cady and Weckbecker constituted the opposing battery. The same clubs are playing again today. Court t'alltnc. The jury in the case of Gould & Co. vs. J. W.

Senator Cxjllom has about reached the conclasion that it is better to be a humble, unknown, fameless, plodding citizen than to fill an exalted place and be the slave of the spoils hunters. "I have never been so pressed and harrassed in my life," he says, "as I have been since March 4. If I had to go through all this again, I almost think that the re wards of political life would saroely be adequate 'compensation. You can have no idea of the persistence of these office seekers, or of the embarrassing compli cation connected with the quest of one's constituents for place. The mere matter of letters is enough to stagger one. Why, they come by hundreds and one is con stantly occupied in keeping up with the correspondence.
