Stage fright or nervousness, or
whatever title the plague is put

team, to give the thousand of spec
tators gathered for the cccasion, an

extent of tying a widely dittering
score alter he had had plenty of
time to recover his equanimity and
marksmanship; still and yet again
that monster and murderer of fair
play, stage fright or nervousness
or whatever you will, insisted on
putting in an appearance with our
friend the McBryde pitcher, thus
throwing the game to Makaweli.
