The Nationals came home unexpectedly on
Thursday to play a transferred game from
Philadelphia and it is hinted also, in order to
give our people an opportunity to see tho
Improvement in the team since Captain Shan
non took charge. If the latter was the case
it fully met the intentions of tho promoters of
the scheme, as the 4,300 people present could
hardly realize that the team playing before
them -was formerly the almost despised "tail
enders." The team played one of tho snap
piest games that has been 6een here this sea
son. It begins to look as if Captain Shannon
was going to make a big success of the team,
or if the work as shown in the three Athletic
games is continued there is no reason why
the club shouldn't be half way up the ladder.
There is another movement in the ranks of
the American Association that means anew
factor in the determination of the champion
ship question. It is no more nor less than
adding a number of games to the present
schedule in order to prolong the season until
the middlo part of October. Naturally tho
National Club will agree to it, as October is
one of tho pleaeantest months in this section.
President Kramer ought to appoint Charley
Snyder to his old position as an umpire, a
place bo vacated to accept the management of
the National Club. He is one of the best um
pires In. America, and with Davis, Mahorno
and Kcrims would make a quartctto that no
oiher league or association over possessed.
Ed. Andrews, loft fielder of tho Ctncinnatls,
has been released by that club, owing to
troublo with Captain Kelly. Ho wants to
como hero and wired President Bennett ask
ing to bo engaged as manager and captain.
Andrews will bo probably engaged If ho wants
to come simply as a ball-player.
President Kramer, of tbo American Asso
ciation, apparently went to sloop over his
contracts, releases, etc., as last week ho bul
lotlncd 6ome that were duo last April. Tho
dishing up of such names as Visner, Mace,
etc., as members of tho National Club seems
something like a dream.
Tho games schoduled by tho Nationals for
this week aro as follows: Sunday, Monday
and Tuesday, tho Cincinnati; Wodnesday,
Thursday and Friday, tho Columbus, and Sat
urday, tho Louisvilles. Wo Bhould win at
least halt of tho games in order to keep our
Tho Boston Club will not play any moro in
this city, oa thoy havo finished up their series.
This is rogrotted, as tho Bostons aro prime
favorites hero. Of course if tho schedule Is
lengthened out then thero will be another
chance to see them.
Tho National Club seems to havo had a llt
tlo ollxir of life infused into it since the
Omaha contingent came. Manager Shannon
has assumed control of tho team, and already
better work is noticeable. It is refreshing.
Foreman received a telegram on Thursday
thathis mother-in-law was dying. Tho message
came to him in the fourth Inning, yet he gal
lautly finished tho contest, though his feelings
may easily bo Imagined.
Attorney Sutherland's rejoinder to Colonel
Rogers, tho attorney of the League, issued
last week, was a clever letter and better read
ing by far than his first. It was full of
While tho Nationals have the game with
tho Cincinnati and Columbus this week tho
Louisvilles are playing the Athletics and Bos
tons, and surely these two organizations ought
to keep the Kontuckians down in last place.
Cuunlngham, Baltimore's pet twirler, is in
bad repute, as his work lately has been away
bolow tho average. Manager Barnie released
him on Tuesday for indifferent playing.
Carsej', whom The Herald has insisted is
tho best pitchor in the quartette of the Na
tional Club, is now getting support and is
consequently pitching great ball.
Beccher has been suffering from rheuma
tism, and that's what caused his lay off from
tho Athletics. He is playing a strong game
for tbo Philadelphia team.
King Kelly has reinstated Robinson in the
rauhs, as that almost incorrigible youngster
has taken several iron-clad oaths to "do better.
McCauley, who takes McQuery's placo at
first base, is certainly cutting out a rapid pace
as a batsman.

TheW. L. 1. Corps and tho Y. M. C. A.

was tho second, as tho C. A. C. had defeated
tho W, L. I. C. on tho previous Wednesday.
Tho games for the present week are as fol
lows: Wednesday, Y. M, C. A. vs. C. A. C;
Saturday, W. L. I. C. vs. Y. M. C. A. Both
games take place at tho National Park.
Harry Hauptman, of the W. L. I. C, is one
of the best fielders that ever trod the diamond.
He is a Potomac Athletic, and will play with
that team next season.
Jack Ranter, jr., is very proud of his suc
cess as a manager and he has every reason to
be proud of the C. A. C. team for their work.
Perhaps Louis Wells, of tho C. A. C, Isn't

keeps his best eye on the spheroid.
The Olympic Baseball Club defeated the
Lafayettea Wednesday on the Georgetown
College grounds. Score, 8 to 2.

ATHLKTICS AND ROWING.
The announcement that the University of
Pennsylvania's crow was coming hero to row.ln
tho eight as tho representative of tho Schuyl
kill Navy and not tho Manhattan Athletic
Club has stirred up qutto a brcozo In amateur
circles. There is decided opposition from all
quaitcrs, and it is not certain that tho Schuyl
kill Navy will caro to send them down. It is
not justico to bonafldo amateurs that a college
crew of this character should bo allowed
to compoto In a race of this kind.

Smithsori, Norton, Mills, Fiuckol, Oliver, Mc
Coy, Young, Oertel, Routello, and Blair.

THE REGATTA COMMITTEE.
Its "Work Getting: Heavy Como Up "With
Your Subscriptions !
The work of the local regatta committee Is
getting heavy. Tho members of tho com
mittee find that they havo a pretty big load. It
has been determined to adhere to the old
course with a slight alteration, but tho finish
will be up in tbe basin, nearly opposite tho
Analostan Club House, so that everybody will
havo an excellent opportunity to witness tho
finishes. At tho old spot whore the former
Analostan house stood thero is a good sito for
a stand, and the committee would realize a
handsome profit by tho erection of such a
structure. Mr. E. A. Allen, of this city,
has given $200 for the privilege of the official
programme, and promises to make it a worthy
souvenir of tho aquatic gathering. It is not
known how much money has been received
In subscriptions as the committee aro keeping
that to themselves. The entries close on
Tuesday next with Secretary Gibson and tho
prospects, judging from reports received from
every section of tho country, aro flattering
that they will bo numerous. Thero aro now
only fifteen days ere tho regatta is on us and
citizens should bear in mind tho fact that
money is needed. Be prompt and generous
with your subscriptions.
Tho tennis eeason has been greatly Inter

Painter, Wooten and Chambers. Tho courts
at Fifteenth street and Rhode Island avenue
havo been in frequent use, and on several even

During August and September It Is expected
that a revival of the interest in tennis will oc
cur, and during the early fall our players will
be constantly at tho nets.

DIVORCES IN PRANCE.
Couples Usually Tire of Each Other After
Five and Under Ton Years.
Tho Journal OJJiciel publishes some read
able statistics relative to tho divorces and
separations decreed in Franco during a period
of twelve months. Tho divorces granted after
less than ono year's connubial happiness
amount to 2 per cqnt. Then comes a tremendous
jump to 23 per cent in tho case of unions hav
ing lasted from, one to five years. Tbe
heaviest proportion of all is that for tho pe
riod extending from tho fifth to tho tenth year,
tho number reached being 40 per cent.
After that tho figures'drop rapidly. Only 28
per cent, of couples seek divorce between their
tenth and twentieth years of union; between
twenty and thirty tho proportion i6 only 0 per
cent, and, finally, only ono pair in a hundred
seeks to cut the knot after sailing through
life together for over thirty and under forty
years, After moro than forty summers of
wedded happiness thero is no instance of the
French equivalent for "a decree nisi," Con
jugal infidelity is the cause of only one-fifth
of the divorces granted.

The umbrella skirt which Parlsennes aro
wearing clings to tho figure all around at tho

sloped Bides on tho front breadth and on two
side gores, while the back has a bias seam
down tho middle.
