An amusing incident occurred after the sixth inning yesterday. A representative of a Detroit paper had been sending the game by inning from the press stand at the grounds. At the end of the sixth, after the Browns had made 4 runs, the correspondent was instructed by wire that his paper had enough, to stop his messages. The announcement of the message caused considerable merriment. Some one remarked that it was evident the score did not suit the Detroiters, and suggested that a score be fixed up to satisfy them.
