3 Tiny Ponies and Carts
To Be Given Away
To the Boys and Girls!
For the past four months our Mr. Parker has
been scouring the country in search q three tiny
trained ponies in order to carry out a pet scheme
of his. We know how fond the average boy and
girl is of these dear little animals and we want to
please them. "We have at last found just what we
wanted, three of the smallest and dearest little
trained ponies in America to-day. - These we pro
pose to give away to our little girl and boy friends
one of them each month for the next three
The Conditions Are These;
The boy or girl, under sixteen years of age, who
influences the largest amount of trade for us from
now until November 1, will be given the first little
pony and a handsome little dog cart.
The boy or girl, under sixteen years of age, who
influences the largest amount of trade from Novem
ber 1 to December 1 will be given the second little
ponr and cart.
The boy or girl, under sixteen years of age, who
influences the largest amount of trade from Decem
ber 1 to January 1 will be given the third little
pony and cart.
Every little boy or girl who brings or sends a
customer, and that, customer buys, the amount of
the purchase will be credited to that particular
boy or girl on our books, and a card will be given
him or her containing the name of the purchaser
and the amount of the purchase. Each succeeding
customer and the amount of his purchase will be
credited thereafter on the same card.
These cards will show the name and the amounts
with which each boy or girl is credited, and will
prevent any mistakes or misunderstanding.
The judges to make the awards will be selected
from the local newspapers each month.
These-little ponies arrived in "Washington yester
day and will be n front of our door on Friday
morning and each day thereafter.
Their names are "Sir "Walter; jr.,'-' "Clifford,
jr.," and "Henry of Navarre, jr."

Philadelphia, Sept 19 Last night's ex
hibition at Tioga was a lilting wind up to
tbe most successful season In tbe history
or bicycle riding. Tbe fact that many
noted professionals were to meet made
the event an unusually attractive one, and
the crowd that w as present was well paid.
Starbuck's. phenomenal mile in his match
race with Eaton was the feature of the
evening. Uotb men took a preliminary
spin and were loudly applauded. Landls
and Curtis paced them on a tandem from
the twe-nty-flve-yard mark.
Tbe men got a good start. They kept
together all the way around, the pace
makers doing very good work. The llrst
quarter was ridden In .44 4 6. When the
tandem dropped Htarbuck made for home
at a terrific pace, not appearing to be the
lejst alfected by the killing pace. Eaton
hung on bravely until the turn, when he
sdw that Siarbuck was running away,
when he gave up, leaving his rival a com
completi victory. The lime, 20 8 4-5, was
the lastest, mile ever ridden at Tioga
In competition. The time for the two
thirds or a mile was 1-25 2 5
The one-mile invitation race came next
and exclteinent ran high. The men lined up
with Sanger on the pole, lTler, Starbuck,
Eaton, Baker, Coleman, In tbe order named.
Rulon anJ llaldwit were the pace-makers.
Tler caught the big machine, with'ltakir
tnd Coleman following. The men kept
tbe same line up to the bell, when a great
rush was made far home. In the struggle
that followed the local favorite, Starbuck,
and the general lavorite, banger, were
icit In the shuffle, Tyler, Coleman and
Baker riding almost neck and neck across
the tape. Baker won by about an inch
from the Springfield man in the splendid
time of 2 08 4-5. There were tvvn teams
for the tandem race, Starbuck and Bartholo

The League game"scheduled for to-day'
are as follows:
Baltimore in Brooklyn.
Cleveland in Pittsburg."
Washington In Philadelphia.
New York in Boston.
Louisville in Cincinnati.
The Senators got away for Philadel
phia this morning. - The good showing
the team made with Brooklyn seems to
have put new life into all of the men, and
they will, no doubt, put up n stlff game
against the Quakers- to-day, and try In
a measure to make up for the bad beating
they got over there last week.
Young Molcsworth, the Virginia find, will
probably be put In to piteh In the game
to-ikiy. The Quakers gave him a lively
touching up last week, but the young man
was no doubt somewhat nervous, that be
ing his first experience against heavy
National League hitters, and he will
prolMhly make a better showing to-day.
To morrow either Boyd or Gilroy will
pitch. TPtf one that Is held out of to-morrow's
game will be put in the day after.
Mercer wasdovvn to remain at home. He
lias pitched three hard and fine games
during the past week, and won them all,
and Manager Schmelz thought he was
deserving of a rest .
When the Scmtors return here on Mon
day they will remain until the work of
the season is over. They have no more
games away from home.
Young Eugene de Montreville has f ulrilled
the greatest expectations or the manage
ment and the fan-c He not only knows
how to play good ball, but he does it. He
uses as much headwork as a veteran. He
madeagood impression in the two games In
which he lias plaved, aul is a favorite
with the bleachers already. They have
named him "Genie."
Athixty-slx games of ball played b tbe
borne team at Philadelphia, there has
been an aggre-gate attendance or 162,000,
an average of 7,000 persona to tbe game.
That u as a hard fall- to 0 that the
Beaueaten gav e tbe Orioles yesterday.
A paragraph is going around the country
that Joe Corbett was played in the
Washington team for three or four games
as a gate card, and that the managers
of the club bad no intention of signing
him. Then- is no truth in tills story. The
Washington club would have signed young
Corbett If lie bad turned out as well as
they hopcil he would. Just as they sign
any other good ball player that may fall
in their way.
The Boston team, heretofore looked upon
as one of the most likely of tbe League
teams for pennant honors, is indeed, mak
ing a forry showing this season. On the
10th or last May, when the season was
about one month old, it stood third on
the list, with 17 games played, 10 won,
7 lost, and a percentage of -B88.
Cleveland was then rifth on the list
and Baltimore seventh. One month later
Boston stood at the top ot the list with
39 games played, 25 won, 14 lost, and a
