From present prospects the Detroits will be deprived of the services of big Dan Brouthers, their first baseman, during the entire series of games for the world's championship. Brouthers hurt himself running from first to second at Indianapolis Saturday. Last night at the Lindell he was so lame that even with the assistance of a cane he was hardly able to move about. The injury is a sprain, and the ankle is puffed considerably.
