The Chicago clubs, who have during the present season sustained defeat at the hands of the Browns, some time ago hit upon a novel way of getting even. This was to pick nine men, one or two from each club, and with them to form a nine that would regain the lost laurels of the city by the lake. This nine was picked and have trained together, and will appear on the Grand Avenue Park this afternoon. The Browns will meet them.
