seem to have gone un noticed and many inside plays worked on the opposing teams by the champions were at his instigation Tinker is a very tricky inside man his fooling the base runner on an out geld fly being a good one I remember how he caught Magee of Phila delphia three times in as many days on this same play Magee was on first each time and each time started to steal second when the batsman hit a fly to our outfield Tinker scrambled for an imaginary grounder or ape parently took Klings throw at second and when Magee learned of his mis take he was an easy out before he could get back to first base Evers tells another good story of head work and Schulte of the Cubs Is the hero It seems there was a man on third and Schulte was on first base with one man outi The Chicago CaptxChance told Schulte to block a double play if possible so that the man on third might score The ball was hit to Second Baseman Huggins and he tossed the ball to Tom Corcoran who In attempting to complete a double play hit Schulte straight in the sorehead knocking him unconscious When Schulte came to he simply said II was told to block a double play and I guess I used my head this time But Chicago won

EASY WHEN TEAM IS WINNING FIGHTING SPIRIT NECESSARY Player Cannot Be Successful Without ItTruest Test of Good Backstop Is When Men Are on Bases De clares Spitball Is a Nuisance and Hardest on Receivers Its a cinch said Charlie Dooin of the Philadelphia Nationals recently to catch a game when the side youre on is winning Id rather do it than anything else I know But I always was a hard loser and although I never give up hope it always breaks me up when we come out on the wrong end of the score board To be a successful player youve got to fight and to win championships youve got to have a team of scrappers By that I dont mean bruisers but fellows who are in the game for all Its worth who are willing to take every chance that comes up and get away with it Take the New York Giants for example Theres a team qJ I c aeo of fighters every one of them People say they are arrogant Bui its nothing more than their fighting spirit cropping out when they swagger around the field Just brimming over with selfconfidence They havent such a lot over some other teams in the league but the present clip they have been going is in my opinion due largely to their fighting spirit Yes I suppose catchers are pretty hard to find continued DooinHAs for myself barring a few times when I played In the outfield I have always been behind the plate and although Charlie Comlsky once told me that Id make a better tailor than I would a catcher Ive managed to keep there still Catching isnt hard especially when the game is going your way and the pitcher Is working well The true test for every backstop comes when there are men on bases and you are up against a fast team You have to keep your eye on the runner all the time and try if possible to read his signal to the batter when he is going down to second then you give the pitcher the sign to waste a ball and you can generally manage to catch the runner napping Its the only way to break up a hitandrun play that I know and although the crowd may yell at the for putting wide ones over wasting balls It pays In the end for it keeps runs down If you can get man napping at first or on his way to second When a man Is coming home from third base the only way to get him Is to dive for him and reach him before he reaches you I stand a little inside of the line and when I get the ball lunge my whole body at the runner Then he cant hurt you for with shin guards and a heavy chest protector the catcher is pretty safe When I first caught I used to stand to one side and try to tag the runner as he came down the line or Just as he went but one summer while I was play ball In the mountains I noticed a big husky football player He never tried to tag a man but Just dove for him and he seldom missed After I had seen him work I made up my mind that that was the game for me and I have always kept It up Yes I Rear shin guards and knee protectors and I have done so for years Three foul tips striking me on the kneecap Jin one game almost put me out of the catching business and I don t take any chances now Dooin Is one of the hestnatured fellows in the world but the one subject that makes tim fly off at a tangent is thee spitball Its r ttenwas his verdict given in very hearty emphasis and It is really harder on the catcherthanJt is on the batter Very any sort of control over the thing and 3t has ruined some catchers completely Besides being the hardest kind of a ball to catch it Is almost impossible to make any kind of an accurate quick throw with it Dont say spitball to me Its a bad noise Connie Mack says he will be a contender for the rag in good old 1909 S GREAT PROSPECTS FOR 1908 FOOTBALL SEASON IN WEST Teams of Conference Colleges More Evenly Matched Than Ever Be foreChampionship In Doubt On the eve of the 1908 football game Indications are that the line bucking game will have a most pros perous session Never before have the conference universities been so evenly matched Where heretofore it has been a fore gone conclusion that victory would go to one or two teams the situation this fall according to experts is decid edly different In that all conference teams seem to be about equal in strengthOn western gridiron the championship is open for argument Chi jasbeenplayers and unless some high class timber Is developed Coach Stagg will have a very rough journey Indiana Is said to have the bright est prospects she has been confronted with In years The Hoosiers them selves admit this and rival elevens are taking the hunch that Coach Jim my Sheldons outfit will have to be reckoned with The same situation holds in Illinois despite the wail of the Illinois coaches that they have lost all the star freshmen A number of last seasons veterans have been retained and with the new material at hand 1tls certain a strong football organization will be constructed Wisconsin according to close students of the game is the dark horse in the west The Badger elevens got into the fray late in the 1907 season after a bad start and made things decidedly interesting Most of last years players wlll be found In line this year and with an early start the team is bound to be heard from ina substantial way Minnesota has lost anumber of 1907 stars With the loss of Capron who did the Tigers share of keeping the Gophers in the running last year and many of the veterans the Gopher club

the northern Pacific Whale killing is almost a fine ar now The ships are fitted with a can non known as the harpoon gun which 4sends the shaft with such terrific force as to impale the creature and always kill il Then it is towed to the station I was with the ship on one of these hunts and secured some splendid pho tographs Because of the speedy movement of the whales I had to be quick with the camera So none of the ex posures took longer than onefiftieth of a second some even less On one occasion we were in col lision with a huge finback a 60footer weighing about as many tons When first seen hewas just in fron- of the bow The captain signaled th engineer to stop but the signal wa Towing Whale to Station misinterpreted and we plowed ahead- hitting the leviathan midships and ri ing up on his back and sinking him some of course When we looked around the head of the whale was seen on one side of the ship his tail on the other with his body under our keel While the captain rushed to the bare poon gun I took a picture which plain ly shows the whales eyes The worst of my experience was with a fog With two men I was com frpmJuneaudenly we found ourselves enveloped in a fog so dense that we couldnt see 20 feet ahead We drifted for 48 hours with no food and with very little waterAdded to this an icy north wind began to blow We did not freeze to death because we managed to keep one another awake We did not know but what we had drifted to sea so when the fog did rise you may imagine our joy at seeing land only a mile awayI am more than gratified over the results of my labors All the data at hand will be used this winter to de termine the exact relation between the Atlantic and Pacific whale I expect to publish a scientific monograph on the subject Dr Bumpus director of the museum was anxious for the investiga tion to be made at this time We be live that the time is not far distant when the whale as a species will be practically extinct taking their place with the mastodon Like the American buffalo they are fast disappearing be fore the demands of commerce Oc casionally a spermaceti whale is caught It is from this whale that the valuable spermaceti oil and ambergris is taken The oil sells at about 100 apound the ambergris at 60 a pound Suitable to the Occasion Capitalist Is this polar expedition a hotair proposition 1 Practical ExplorerNot if we can get

city a feeling of sadness that his soul cannot resist when he consid ers the misfortune attending him who seeks to aid his brother man writes a Washington correspondent Last week an individual from Ire land verdant as the grass of his Em erald Isle drifted into Washington and besought aid of friends that he might land a position lightly tossing mixtures across the festive bar He met a friend also Irish and to this friend he confessed his ambition to become a firstclass mixologist in the capital of the nation The friend re membered the official who is a proper prohibitionist and called him up over the phone Ive a friend just arrived from Ireland said heafld I want you as a personal favor to write him a neat little letter explaining that you regard him as an ideal concoctor of mixed bug juice Take it from me he Is He mixed me a cocktail once that floated me for a week I know what Im talking about So the dear kind official who never drinksnever never drinks mind you agreed to write for the ardent mix ologist a letter of effusiveness that would touch the heart of any barkeep In townToward a business office where the official and numerous coworkers and the man who hires him were gath ered the man with the ambition wended his weary way The official was seated In a calm addresstan ap preciative audience when from with out the door came a booming voice inquiring whether Mr was around The official looked up on hearing his name called and inquired who desired the pleasure of his company and con versation In walked the man with the ambi tion to mix them for Washington citi zens his genial face aglow with sun burn and perspiration Om lukin for a man by the name of Misther reiterated the man with the ambition are you him- I 1 am he replied the official im ramatticallYe lukinsa announced the man from the Emerald IsleSomebody snickered The official let out a noise like the snort of a wounded walrus My man he protested I Yis I know remarked the son of Erin but yez see they told me thot if Oi could git thot litter of recom mindashun from ye Oi could git a job at any place in town The officialthe official who never drinksgazed at the apoplectic faces of his dear friends and at the look of mild sad how could you do it reproach on the face of the man who hires him and he turned toward the fatuously happy searcher for a posi tion as dispenser of drinkables Come with me my man com with me he said in a slightly choked voice taking the seeker after a position by the arm Together they walked away to a lit tIe office where the official sat down thadt would do best to kill the searcher fo a position or the man who got him t write the letter or both All Saw to Dogs Comfort Is it possiblecan it be possible that Washington has a bad name in the south with

the same statistics =twould take the leather and hide output of the entire middle west for three years But to the point A newspaper man was down in the freight yards of the Union station just the other day and passed a baggage car in which was a box with a slatted front containing two handsome collie dogs the kind one sees in Landseers paintings The box was addressed to New York and had been shipped from a North Caro lina point Tacked on the front of the box was a placard containing a crude ly printed sign which read When were in Washington please give us a drink of water We wont bite you I wonder if that was a slur on the town But however it was Intended the suggestion was most efficacious Hardly a man woman or child passed that crate and saw the sign without stopping to peer in and

rr If the suffragettes of England an the equal rights advocates of America could organize their sex as success fully as did the leaders of the Hop- women they could accomplish their ends in short order Once upon a time and this is not a fairy tale either the Hopi squaws grew tired of th fgPJ lR1600WIN YtYtat Of tfAIRDRE SfNG tyranny of the lazy lords of the mesas and went out on strike removing to adistant mesa so difficult of access that they could easily defend it against forcible invasion For a time the men refused to worry believing that the women would soon tire of their Adam less Eden but as days grew Into weeks with no sign of surrender from the women the men began to negotiate for a restoratijA of domestic union To all overtures this kind the women returned but ne answer They were ready to ret rn to their homes whenever the men were ready to con cede to them the mastery of the house hold It was a bitter pill without sugar coating but the men were compelled to swallow it This earliest and most successful of all womens rights movements occurred so long ago that tradition gives no hint of the epoch and the name the female Napoleon who through this remarkable campaign has been lost in the mists of ages Nevertheless the work of the Hopi suffragettes still lives In the strange stone cities perched high on the summits of the Arizona mesas the women still rule the roost and the men play a sore othetribes of American aborigines squaws are drudges and beasts of burden trained to fetch and carry and cater to the caprices of the dirty braves with abject humility In Hopi land the positions of the sexes are ex actly reversed Itrtillofields attend to the sheep goats and burros weave blankets belts and ceremonial robes mind the babies and In general do as their wives bid them The fine art work of the Hopis bas ket making and pottery manufacture are reserved for the women apparently in the belief that mans inferior ity renders him unfit for the serious business of life It is worthy of note that the blankets woven by the men are so inferior to those woven the Navajo women that there is no room for comparison while the tery made by the Hopi women is finest of its kind in the world their baskets have no superiors Ev the most dearly cherished prerogative of masculinity in other parts of the worldthat of selecting a life part ner has been usurped by the women of the Hopis Whenever a girl makes her choice of a husband she goes to consult the youths mother If t mother is willing to accept the can date for a daughterinlaw the business is settled on the spot and the man the case must make the best of it consult either him or his father or the girls father would be considered as ridiculous as unnecessary Once the question of marriage has been settled the girl must grind for 30 days for her prospedtive mo erinlaw while the man must weave his future wifes wedding dress embroider it by hand and plant the croi for the maintenance of his Inevitably this relegation of the masculine sex toa secondary position has been productive of curious and in structive social results Not least striking of these is thepoor figure Hopi tribesmen always have cut warfare In the perennial wars Navajh lt for the inaccessibility of the location of their towns upon the summits of lofty mesas the Navajos would have1y exterminated them In contempt th warlike nomads called them Moki signifying dead men while their proper appellation Hopi signifies men of peace i dObjecting to Acting as Valet grievances of Mrs Clark Black of Chicago who sued for a

and five seamen of the schooner Mary B Judge from Mobile for San Juan were rescued by the steamer Julia Luckenbach The Luck enbach under command of Capt W J Connell arrived here from New York bringing the rescued men The Mary B Judge left Mobile for San Juan with a cargo of lumber She was due here in thin early part of Sep tember but during a considerable part of the voyage calms prevailed She ran into a gale on September 10 and on the following day it had developed They Clung Six Days to the Wreckage into a hurricane The schooners masts were carried away and she was absolutely helpless The heavy seas opened her seams and she soon filled with water The captain and his crew lashed themselves to the top Of the poop which was the only part of the vessel above water All they had suc ceeded In saving was a little hard tack and a gallon of water The water was exhausted in 24 hours and the hardtack was doledout to each man daily On the 16th the men caught two gallons of rain and when rescued they still had a gallon left and eight hardtacks They had almost abandoned hope realizing that their position was off the regular course of vessels but nev ertheless a strict lookout was kept the men taking turns at the watch although almost exhausted and with their hands and feet badly swollen The tight of the Luckenbach was seen at 1140 Wednesday night It looked like a tiny star In the far distance but soon was made out to be a ships light With some matches and a few splinters chipped from the rail a fire was started in a Un bucket The Luckenbach was 100 miles off her course having proceeded in that direction to avoid the hurricane Chief Officer Thomas 1 Haley sighted the little fire on the schooner several miles away and bore down upon it The sea vas rough but volunteers were not wanting and soqn a lifeboat was launched It was found impossi ble to bring the beat near enough to the wreckage to take the men off and one by one they leaped froin the schooner into the sea arid

said pleasantly when he halted beside her There Is one thing more which I must say to you Was this what he had expected haz ard might bring to him Was this the prophecy of his hammering pulses Please

he became aware of another vehicle standing inI front of the house a cab from which Mrs Ruthvens maid descended What is she doing here he asked turning in astonishment to Mrs Ruth yen Phil she said in

even after the carriage had whirl ed away into the storm Then look Ing up at the house he felt for his keys but a sudden horror of being alone arrested him and he stepped back calling out to his cabman who was already turning his horses head Wait a moment I think Ill drive back to Mrs Gerards And take your time I Chapter O R J was still early lacking a quarter of an hour to idTmidnightwhen fielwyn arrived home Nina had retired but Austin sat ID the library obstinately plodding through the last chapters of a brand new novel This is a wretched excuse for sitting up he yawned laying the book flat on the table but still open I ought never to be trusted alone with any book Then he removed his reading glasses yawned again and surveyed Selwyn from head to foot Very pretty he said Well how are the yellow ones Phil Or was it all debutante and slop twaddle Few from the cradle but bunches were arriving for the dance as I left Eileen went at half past 11 I didnt know she was going said Selwyn surprised She didnt want you to The playful kitten business you know frisks apropos of nothing to frisk about But we all fancied youd stay for the dance He yawned mightily and gazed at Selwyn with ruddy gravity Whisk he inquired NoCigar mildly urgent No thanks Bed HI think so But dont wait for me Austin Is that the evening paper Where is St Paul ehvrn unfolded the paper So his brother iri law moved ponderously away yawning frTghtfuiiy at every heavy stride and the younger mann settled back in his chair a fragrant cigar balanced between his strong slim finger one leg dropped loosely over the other After awhile the news paper fell to the floor He sat there without moving fer a long time His cigar burning close had gone out The fire having burned low he rose laid a pair of heavy logs across the coals dragged hIs chair to the hearth and settled down in it deep lyLong after his cigar burned bitter he sat with eyes fixed on the blaze When the flames at last began to flick er and subside his lids fluttered then drooped but he had lost all reckoning i or time when ne opened them again to find Miss Erfoll in furs and ball gown kneeling on the hearth and laying a log across the andirons Upon my word he murmured confused then rising quicklyHIs that you Miss Erroll What time is iU Four oclock in the morning Cap tain Selwyn she said straightening up to her full height This room is Icy Are you frozen Chilled through he stood looking about In a dazed way incredulous of the hour and of his own slumber I dont know how I happened to do it he muttered abashed by his plight I rekindled the fire for your bene fitshe said You had better use It before you retire And she seated herself in the armchair stretching out Craig her ungloved hands to the blaze smooth Innocent hands so soft so amazingly fresh and white He moved a step forward into the warmth stood a moment then reached forward for a chair and drew It up be side hers Do you mean to say you are not sleepy he asked- I No not in the least I will be tomorrow though Did you have a good time You danced a lot I dare say he ventured Yesa lot studying the floor Decent partners Oh yes Who was there She looked up at him You were not there she said smiling No I cut it But I did not know you were going ou said nothing about it Of course you would have stayed if you had known Captain Selwyn She was still smiling Of course he replied Would you really Why yes There was something not perfectly familiar to him in the girls bright brevity In her direct personal inquiry for between them hitherto the gayly impersonal had ruled except iu mo ments of lightest badinage Was it an amusing dinner she asked in her turn Rather Then he looked up at her but she had stretched her slim silk shod feet to the fender and her head was bent aside so that he could see only the curve of the cheek and the little close set ear under its ruddy mass of gold Who was there she asked too carelesslyFor he did not speak Un der his bronzed cheek the flat muscles stirred Had some meddling malicious fool ventured to whisper an unfit jest to this young girl Had a word or a smile and a phrase cut in two awak ened her to a sorry wisdom at his ex pense Something had happened and the idea stirred him to wrath as when a child is wantonly frightened or a dumb creature misused What did you ask mehe inquired gently I asked you who

Recovery Shelbyville IndA bottle of beer put up 23 years ago was unearthed on the Martin Burchert farm near Pres cott the other day There is a story connected with it In the fall of 1885 Burchert and Barney Leland both wellknown resi dents of Shelby township went into the harvest field to work They took two quart bottles of Cincinnati beer with them When they arrived at an old well On the place they drank the contents of one bottle and lowered the other Into the well to keep cool When their work was finished in the afternoon one of the men went to the well and attempted to draw the bottle up He broke the string causing the bottle to fall to the bottom of the well which was 25 feet deep The present season has been very dry causing the water in the well to be only a foot or two in depth and Burchert decided to clean it out While he was doing so he found this bottle with the beer still in It The fastening at the top of the neck is of wire which method went out of use 16 years ago GERONIMO

was a group of farms and the wonderful development that is taking place now The great things of Washington ap pear commonplace to Washington peo plea They see them so often that they do not see them at all They ride by the capitol every day but rarely tread the halls corridors of the majestic old pile where so much world history has been made and is still making They have no time to give to the in teresting frescoes the paintings the statues and the stories of the place They are too busy to do as strangers do climb to the dome get a glorious panorama see the city at a glance shunrso ly situated there being no street cars squaresTheyscriptions on the memorials that abound They do not flock to the Na tional Museum or the art gallery or to Arlington or the Naval observatory toIPaulICatholic university They neglect the Soldiers Home unless they own an auto and then perhaps their only comment is that the roads are good Washingtonians will walk till their bunions burn in
