Rain interfered with the third game of the series between the Atlantics, of Brooklyn, and the St. Louis Brown Stockings that was to have been played at the Grand Avenue Base Ball Park yesterday afternoon, the grounds being too wet to permit of a contest. The visitors have kindly consented to remain over and play the game this afternoon. The contest will be a grand one and the Atlantics are deserving of liberal patronage for having come so far West to please the admirers of the national game.
