Pitcher Rankin Johnson of the
Syracuse, N. Y., club, will join the
White Sox before the end of the

paid $6,000 for him. Several major
league clubs have gfven the young
ster the "once over."
The Pirates, who are in the shat
tering business, busted Mathewson's
winning streak, driving him to cover
in the fifth inning with a volley of
hits that yielded seven runs. George
McQuillan would have blanked the
Giants but for an error by Max Garey.
Carey evened up "by pounding three
hits. Gibson got the same number.
The Giants played a punk fielding
game after the Pirates started to hit.
Philadelphia got only eight hits off
Harmon, but five of them were for
extra bases, and the Cards were
snowed under. Eppa Rixey held St.
Louis to four hits. Cravath soaked a
triple and homer, Knabe and Doolan
a triple apiece, and Luderus a double
Cleveland played good ball against
. the Athletics until the fifth inning,
when the Macks' dropped a few safe
bunts and Frank Baker rapped a

Bush was hit hard by the Naps, but
three marvelous catches by Strunk

to the end of the season. The scheme
is that Lajoie is to go to Boston.
Stahl will come here and some of the
young White Sox catchers will go
to Cleveland. It is another link in
the story that Callahan is to be de

According to the professor, the mod

also to er well, prying eyes.
"Many so-called 'society women'
have come to regard the street as a

charms," declared the professor.
"For any woman to be 'well dress

be immeasurably harmful. I believe
