MICHAEL J. ILLY.
W. I. Harris' Letter Is About
This Extraordinary Player.
3IAGNIFICENT EYEN IN DEFEAT.
Ho Was Born at Troy, T. He fever
"Worked Very Hard Till Ho Found His
Sphere on the Diamond, and Xow He
Plays for a Jiving:.
The most prominent characteristic of
Michael J. Kelly, the man whose name has
been a byword among the baseball crank3
of the last decade, was aptly designated by
the Chicago wit, who hus wrote of him,
the occasion being the defeat of the Boston
club on its first visit to Chicago after
Kelly became a meir&sr of-tMe team:
"Michael J. Kelly is magnificent mag
nificent even in defeat. The fall of Bium
could not abate the glory of Hector one
jot, and the martyrdom -of Winkelreid
served simply to immortalize the patriotic
Switzer's name, bo Kelly -rises Sphinx like
from the cinders of yesterday's catastrophe,
disfigured mayhap, bnt undiamayc-d and
eager, aye, rampant, for conquest."
The "only" Mike cannot be downed more
than temporarily. There isn't another like
him in the baseball business. After "Kel,"
as he is familiarly known wherever base
ball is played, was made the mold was
broken. lie is an original of originals.
Kelly was born Dec. 31, 1857, at Troy, N.
Y., and never did anything like work so
far as any one knows until he began to
play ball. The exact date o this event is
not known. "Kel" himself savs. "I always
played ball." However, at 16 we have a
record of him. He was then a catcher for
the Haymakers of Paterson, N. J. In
1S76 Kelly played with the Olympics of
Paterson, and in 1S77-78 he went to Colum
bus and played with the Burkeyes of that
place. In 1S79 he played with the Cincin
nati League club. In th winter of 1879 he
went to California with the Cincinnati
Buffalo combination, and ia I860 signed
with Chicago. Ho remained with that
club until the spring of 1857, when his re
lease was sold to the Boston club for
$10,000 and he went to that city, receiving
a salary of $4,500. In 1S79 "Kei" got $60 a
month, and his advance money when he
signed was $20. When ho signed with
Boston he drew $1,030 as advance salary.
A handsome, dashing fellow is '"the only
Mike," a brainy, intelligent player, who
pla5's with his brains as well as his body.
His wit is as quick as a flash, and he ha.s
invented about half of the tricks of the
game that are now in such general use.
One of his most famous tricks is to wait for
his base on balls, and tantalize and worry
a pitcher and exhau?t his strength and pa
tience by "bunting" every good ball over
into foul ground. He is marvelously skill
ful at it, and many a base so earned has
netted a much needed run. Kelly was the
first player who became famous for cutting
third base, and he has always been the
most successful man in the business at
breaking the rules and escaping the conse
quences, both on and off the field.
Kelly stands at the home plate with every
nerve strung up to its highest tension.
Clutching his bat several inches from the
end of the handle to give him a quicker
command of it, he keeps it nervously de
scribing eccentric tireas over his right
shoulder, with his feet well together, the
left a little in advance. From his unerring
accuracy in gauging a pitcher's delivery
all the craft dread him.
"Play ball" is "'Kel's-' watchword, and
no matter where he may be standing his
war cry is sure to be heard when the cau
tion is needed. Few better "all around"
players ever donned a uniform. His bat
ting record does not show his true worth
as a batsman, because he always plays for
his side, but such as it is it gives him in
twelve seasons' play fourth position among
the veterans. In that time he has played
1,155 games, been 4,877 times at bat and
made 1,570 base hits, with an average ot
.323. In 1SS4 Kelly stood third in batting.
He was N'e. IS in lSb5, and led the League
in IdSG. His position was sevonth in 1SS7,
fourth in 18SS, and twenty-fifth in 16S9.
Kelly is a great run ,'tter. and as a base
stealer 'has few equals in the profession
when it comes to stealing bases where suc
cess means runs and victory. Thoro ara
men who .steal more bases, but not over
two or three can touch "the only" in an
Kelly as a captain was not a success ki
1SS9. The main reason for this was that
ho dissipated, and his example was not
conducive to discipline. Had "Kel" kept
his own behavior up to the right standard
there is little doubt thnt his team would
have been champions in 1SS9. This year
Kelly has kept himself in condition and has
kept his men in lino. It looks now as if ho
ought to win the Players' League pennant.
Kelly's methods as a captain have been
changed. Last year ho was persuasive
and his discipline was lax. This year he is
dictatorial and forcible, and yet withal
"jollys" his men when they do good work.
This proves that Kelly has come to the
couclu-sion that Anson and Ewing succeed
by enforcing t heir commands, and that the
iron hand, even though tact puts a glove
on it, is the one patent factor in a success
ful captain. Kelly's new method is cer-tainlj-
uctring wonderful work out of his
Kelly has written a book called "Play
Ball" at least hesuggeated the ideas to his
friend, John J. Droh&n, who wrote them
up. In private lite Kelly is his worst ene
my, as ho has a whole souled, generous na
ture that has a tendency to keep him poor.
Kelly's winter occupation is assisting in
the management of a profitable saloon
business in S-nr York. His partner is the
former umpire, John Kelly. Kelly is very
opular with the public, and has a person
ality that seldom fails to enliven any game
in whiuh he participates.

The Manhattan'.-. Grounds.
The acquiring by the Manhattan Athletic
club of their old grounds in New York
city, corner of Fifty-sicrth street and
Eighth avenue, is already showing effect
in amateur athletic circles of that city, for
even though the grounds ara not yet in
condition tor use applications have come
in great numbers from many athletes of
other clubs for the privilege to practice on
the new plot. Tilt creat advantage in tho
grounds is that they are about a near the
residence portion of the city as possible,
and young men can visit them without de
voting a great amount of time to simply
traveling. The track .will be the same as
when the plot, was used eight years 30 by
the same chib, and. although eight laps to
the mile is not good for nctaeJ. racing, it
is satisfactory for practice. The land has
been idle since the Manhattans vacated it
in 1332, and the owner says he will not sell
for under Sl.tKftAfcV. The Manhattans will
keap the phree only antii permanent
grounds can be iesared.
' THE FAKIR'S CURSS.
A Prophecy of Evil That Carac Trne with
James Mass, the traveler, tells this story:
"It was about 5 o'olock in the eveninsr, and
Col. Yeager esd I sat on the veranda of
the Ticnllah hctel. in Bombey, and on ti
edge of the native ciry, vkieb. lg called Yi
cullah. and not Bombay. The celoasl is '
dead; ali thct he ncc owned .ad wived is
gone. He wss ojepscting has wife and
daughter, who hxwi fccsn out to England
on a vsa-'h visit, end the vesselwftt. to ar
rive et CslCBSta nest-dayf-whUcwoTyere
eolnar to se&the buczslcw readv toneceive i
tnera. Tne colonel was m tne Dest-or spir
its. Ho joked and laughed and told old
stories of love and war; how he was nearly
captured and murdered by the renowned
Xana-Sahib, at Cawnpore; of his vast poppy
plantations, and the revemie he derived
from the opium he di.st.il led every year.
"Finally we started to walk to where we
had our horses stabled, and then for a can
ter over the beautif nl roads to the bunga
low fifteen miles away. We had to go
through Yicullah to reach our destination.
What a kaleidoscope that native city
is! The hurrah-wallah water carrier,
wearing nothing but a breech clout, and
the male body servant, with his rod turban
and long white jackets; Jewa rom Pales
tine, Parsoes or fire worshipers, who trav
eled 3,000 milea over desert and mountain
from Persia and carried their sacred fires;
all picturesque, alhin white bordered with
red or other brightcolors.
"Well, in turning a corner in Yicullah
we found a crowd being harangued by one
of the best known fakirs in India. I had
heard him spoken of as one who could put
a blight upon you. People called him
Sadi-Sidb, Sadi, my master. Col. Yeager
pushed through the crowd to within a few
feet of the fakir, to whom he said some
thing in Hindostanese. It seemed to en
rage Sadi, who jumped from his little
platform in front of Yeager, saying:
" 'Englishman, be careful, or blight may
fall upon you and youra. Tread not upon
the sinsllest thing Buddha has created, or
it may turn anc sting you.'
"Before I could turn and stop him the
colonel had cut the fakir across the face,
and with an oath had shouted, 'Out of the
way, you Hindoo pig'
"The fakir with blazing eyes said:
" 'Englishman, you will not meet your
wife. You will not meet your child. Your
plantations will be devastated; yourraven
heart will wither within you. You will
"The fakir's words were prophetic. I
felt it then, and I also think the colonel
did. We reached the bungalow and were
soon in bed. How I slept that night I
don't know. The words, 'Englishman, be
ware!' were continually ringing in my ear.
Next morning I went into the breakfast
room and I shudder when I think of it.
The colonel was there walking up and
down with a telegram jn his hand, his face
drawn, and he looked twenty years older
than he did the night before. WiCh tears
in his eyes ho handed me this message:
'Steamship Fiago went ashore at the mouth
of Hoogaly. Your wife and child drowned.'
I have never seen the colonel since, but
I havo watched his career. His poppy
crop was a failure that year and it ruined
him, his bungalow was burned by either
accident, or design, and Yeager died within
a twelvemoutn of a broken heart." Phila
When Tarragnt Was a Hoy.
Admiral Farragut used to relate a story
of the time when he was a midshipman
not 13 years of age, serving on board the
Essex in the Pacific ocean. Upon the cap
ture of his ship after a most heroic defense
of two hours and a half, during which tho
littlo midshipman had borne a man's part,
he found that he was onlj- a boy after all,
for he could not help crjing. "Never mind,
my little fellow," said the English captain;
"it will be your turn next time, perhaps."
"I hope so," said the boy, blubbering, as
ho left tho cabin to have his cry out in the
He did not cry long. Soon an English
midshipman of his own age came by carry
ing under his arm Farragut's pet pig from
the captured Esex. "That pig is mine,"
said the American, and he laid hold of it
with both hands. "Go it , my little Yankee,"
said one of the English officers; "if you can
thrash 'Shorty,' you shall have your pig."
The ring was formed, and Farragut
fought with such vigor and science that
"Shorty" was soon abundantly willing to
surrender his prize. "This victory," the
admiral would say, "made me feel that I
had in some degree wiped out the digrace
of our defeat."' Youth's Companion.
Influence of a Crowd.
When the electric touch of sympathetic
feeling has gono among a mass of men it
communicates it3elf, and is reflected back
froui every individual in the crowd with
11 force exactly proportioned to their num
bers. The speech or sermon read before
tho limited circle of a family, and the same
discourse uttered before closely crowded
hundreds, are two different things. There
is a power even in the mere presence of a
common crowd, exciting almost uncontrol
lable emotion. It is on record that the
hard heart of an oriental conqueror was
unmanned b the sight of a dense mass of
living millions engaged in one enterprise.
He accounted for it by saying that it sug
gested to him that within a single century
not one of thooe million? would be .alive.
But the hard hearted bopom of the tyrant
mistook its own emotions; his teara came
from no such far fetched inference of re
flection. They rose spontaneously, as they
will rise in a dense crowd, you cannot tell
why. It is the thrilling thought of num
bers engaged in tho same object. It is the
idea of our own feelings reciprocated back
to us and reflected from many hearts. It
is the mighty presence of life. F.W. Rob
