Com:kej-'9 baseball rtar Is once more
In the ascendant, and now here Is there, more
ccnuine rejoicing oer his success than In
St. Louis, the scene of his former triumphs.
The old Browns' grizzled commander has
made Chicago the corner-stone of the Amer
ican Leasue. and given that well-conducted
organization an Importance In the ba?obaU
world that It could not have otherwise at
tdlned. He showed splendid Judgment In
the selection of his plaers and admirable
skill In handllnsr them. With character
istic courage ho assumed responsibilities
that a man of let.9 strength and energy
would have shirked, and made an experi
ment a success. He Inspired players who
had grown old In their profession to put
forth their best eflorts and Instructed
novices tn the finer points of tha game.
He maintained discipline without breaking
the fplrlt o" his men and received at all
times their loyal support. His success was
under tho standard of Clean Call a brand
that the people want and will buy.
Something more than baseball general
ship has been shown by Comlskey in mak
ing American League baseball popular In
Chicago. It requires extraordinary business
capacity to prepare his plant In ro short
a time, and under such handicaps as the
weather and the carpenters' strike Imposed
op him. As a special concession, he secured
the consent of tho union for the employ
ment of a large force of mechanics, and un
der his Immediate supenltlon the work
was pushed to rapid completion. The death
of nis brother called hira away from his
club at tho time when his direction was
most necessary Instead of becoming dis
couraged at the poor Mart bis team made
in the race, he directed his attention to
strengthening positions which were poorly
fielded and geti'ng his players perfected la
team work. In this he had the earnest as
sistance or Captain Padden. who by pre
cept and example grtatly aided in making
pennant winners out of the Whito Stockings
in their initial teason a feat seldom ac
complished. The secret of th9 success of th team
was primarily In the harmony and hurt
ling of the players, many of whom played
out of their positions for weeks at a time
wunoui a proiesu fco gooa a team, so ably
captained and admirably managed Is
worthy to represent any city. Sporting

Illnesi and injuries have greatly Inter
fered with the efliclency of tho National
lieague staff. Em'lie has not been well for
over two months, and O'Day Is complain

shoulder and Snyder's breast Is In an awful
condition as a lesult of the Impact of foul
tips oa one spot. Hurst wear well and
his tplcndld work has won pralbe from
club-owners and managers, who, at tho
beginning of the season, refused to permit
him to officiate la games In which their
teams took part. His servicer are now
sought after by thoe who scorned them,
thus strengthening the argument that club
owners should not be consulted In tho as
signment of tho members of tho staff. If.
is gratifying to note that Gaffne has es
caped criticism for his conduct, and It Is to
be hoped that he v. Ill not have a relapse

umpired a number of college games thU
reason at President Young's request prior
to his appointment to the National League
unff. and the reports which reached his old
chlcr were eo uniformly good that another
chance was givtn him. Tne crippled condi
tion of the regular staff made It Imperative
for Mr. Young to secure Fome one of abil
ity and experience, and Gaffney was se
lected, llrs. Gaffney accompanies her hus
band around the circuit and he has never
been on a spree while on duty when sho
v.as with him. It Is but fair to cay that
Mr. Young tendered a position to Jlr
Ljnch last spring, and urged its jc
icptance, but the appointment was de
clined. It will be remtmhtred that Lynch
was omitted from the list when the elec
tion took place, and he naturally felt a
resentment toward the magnates, who thus
ill .credited him without oiuse. The Sport

dops and throws by both sides, which kopt
the hits down. Each pitcher almost threw

In the fourth Pittsburg apparently Fewcd

bases and scored on Ely's hard smash
through Wallace. The score was 3 to 2.
Such a llt'le handicap didn't worry St.
Louis at all. All the rooters thought the
game wa.T won by Pittsburg, so when the

showing that the ex-Giants had scored live
runs, the mob cut loo-e In earnest. The

In spite of the great furore that Sloan
and the other American jockeys have cre
ated in England, their percentage of win
ning mounts Is small compared with that
of many riders on this side of the otcan.
Sloan's percentage. 23 per cent, would hard
ly attract attention in this country. It is
also strange how such boys as Itlgby and
tht IMfls should blossom forth as pri inters
In England while ranking only a3 lower
medium boys hire.
In short, what is actually the status and
1 the high winning average of the English
lioys In face of the Americans' success?
I Truly- it seems as If tht American Jockeys
j were as far sui-orior in the mass as are
, the American athletes! Apparently we have
here half a dozen boyi with better aver
ages than any of those on the othir side.

the American rating public Is any less ap

The great innual struggle for the cricket
supremacy between the English counties
has It-en bioiight to a conclusion, with
Yorkshire, whose team is captained by ihe
noted Lord Havvke, in the lead, having
pjyed through the entire season without
once meeting defeat. Lancashire play eel an
equal number rf gaircs. but suffered two
detuits, and finished .1 good second. Kent
came next, while fourth plate is held by
Sussex, the county which claims the alle
giance of Prince Hanjilslnhjl. and which
last year finished low un the list. The
ph.-nomer.al batting of the famous In
dian, with the support of his club mat,
C IS. Try. the Oxronl athlete, was mamiy
responslble for this county's spurt in tne
race for national cricket honors. Kanjlt
jinliji heads the list of first-class batting
average, with the remarkable average of
M.36 for thirty -eight innings, during which
he compiled 2.912 runs. Leing not out five
time's, with a h'gh 'core of 273 tallied In an
iudivlduil inning. Pry was setond, with an
er.ige of 13.13. Only evvo defeats were ad-mlnl-tered
tn Sussex, but no less than
ilghlce-n ginies v.cre drawn. Had the
bowlers been anywhere near as serviceable
as tht batsmen the county would have
have made n strong lid for the champion

The American Cricketer of Philadelphia,
in Its latest Is-ue makes a reference to thev
representation of New York on the Unlttd
St ites team ill the annual International
match Vvith Canada, set Iown for Septem
ber 21 and 22. in the following article:
"Tho eleven to represent Philadelphia, has
not been selected, hut will be in the course
of a day or two. The task will be! a. dim
cult one. as there are a number of rotn to
be considered. The suggestion hns been
mad-? that Messrs. M. It. Cobb and F. F.
Kelly of New Y'ork be included In tho
make-up of the United States eleven. How
ever, it is hardly- likely that they will bo
considered, for. although they ore both un
doubtedly worthy ot places on a United
States eleven, It Is almost ternin that the
selection of the team will be made en
tirely from Philadelphia players,"
Inasmuch as the American Cricketer is
the oilltial organ ot the Associated Cricket
Clubs of Philadelphia, the statement cited
above carries considerable weight, but will
hardly prove very satisfactory to the fol
lowers of the game In the metropolis, who
clamor for representation to the extent of
nt least one or two men.

TO AIIJl&T THEIIt SHOOT.
Tor tho man who is going on his flrrt
deer-hunting expedition this year It Is a
good plan to buy his rifle now and take it
off to a quiet and secluded nook, where h
miy get acquainted with Itn gcntlo eccen
tricities, without dnrger of killing any one.
Every season a number of xain with brand
new and untried rI.T go up Into the wood3
of Maine and proceed to fill the air full of
lead, without In any- wie affecting th
moewe erensus. A good deal of this is duey
to the fact that they- are afflicted with th
mystcrlo.is element known as buck fever;
part of It is due to the unacqualntance with
firearms, but a great deal of It may be llM
to tho fact that they- have relied with
childlike simplicity on the correct sighting
of the rifles as ent out from the factory.
They do rmt realize that sighting is very
much a matter of eyes.ght, and that th
man who targets tho rifles at tho factory
(they arc all supposed to havo been tar

on the field Charles II. Mack, a young ma
weighing about H- pounds, and challenged
any- one of the squad to lift him (Mack) off
his feet. This was; easy, ali thought, but of
tvventy-t.vo men who made the try not ono
man accomplished the- feat. After about all

would do It. but was equally unsuctffsisful.
Then l.l coach Itn Dibble tried, failed
and ele. lared that .Mack was m league with
the devil. Mack uses what may Le called
by- some hypnotic power, or the power ot
mind over circumstances. When a min
would try to lift him Mack would place h't
Index finger lii;htly on the side of the neel:
of the lifter, and by sonic uuse.-n powr

his linger was removed he was lifted al
most as a child by the sturdy fooib.illi.ts
Innumerable tests were made, until Mack
