Conditions were perfect yesterday.
Red had not pitched since Friday,
the afternoon was fine and warm,
and there was no chance for an alibi.
Believe U9, Russell didn't need any.
One hit, a single to center by Harry
Hooper, was the total of the Red Sox
stickwork. against the Texas south
paw. Holding a team to one hit, with
such batters as Speaker, Hooper,
Lewis, Yerkes, Wagner and Carrigan
stepping to the plate, is "real pitch
ing." James John Callahan, manager of
the White Sox, becomes Simon Le-
gree to Larry Chappelle, the hard
hitting outfielder from Milwaukee.
In the great slave market, arranged
by Owneress Britton of the Brewers,
President Comiskey of the Sox made
a bid-that landed Larry. John Beall,
a catcher to be delivered in the
spring, and a bunch of coin, estimat
ed at $15,000, were given in exchange
Overseer Callahan, who gets the
work out of Comiskey's hired hands,
believes Chappelle is the ingredient
needed to make the Sox bad medi
cine for the other teams in the Amer
ican League. His batting mark is
arouiyl .356 in the American Asso
ciation, and if he comes anywhere
near that when facing the pitchers
in Ban Johnson's circuit, he will be
welcomed by the best families and

Just remember what happened to

That seventh-inning batting rally
of the White Sox resembled the work
of the Athletics, who, by the way,
will appear at the South Side park
tomorrow for a six-game series in
four dayg. After one run had counted
and two Out, five successive swats
produced four additional tallies.
Ping Bodie led the swatters, with a
double and two singles. Russell scor

Hey, Al Bridwell, hurry back,1 Red
Corriden is stealing third with one
out and his team two runs behind.
Tfiat is, he is trying to steal third,
