Bill Gleason of St. Louis Browns

Llnht Turned on Career of Pltchcf
Who Won National Lcaaue Pen

Used a Balk Motion.
Dill Gleason (Drother Dill), now a
captain In the St. Louis lire depart
ment, once u member of the famous
old Drowns of the eighties mulct
Charley Comlskey, was In u rvmluls'
cent niodil the other day and told some
stories of the dujs when the iiumiirch
of baseball the old Drowns were
beating 'em all.
During tho fanning bee he cast some
lights on the career of Charley Dad
bourne, who won the National leaguo
Hag for Providence In 18SI.
"Providence In 1SSI had a greal
team nnd one that was full of tricks,
and Dadbotirue pulled his share," said
"Dadbotirne used a balk motion that
was better than IM Walsh's, and you
remember how the 'Dig .Moose' used to
get nwny with It for l'lehler .lones. If
u hitter got on, Dudhoiirnc frequently
caught him napping. He was almost as
good as Matty Kllroy at picking 'em
off the bag.
"Irwin and Carroll were clever hunt
ers and kept the opposition guessing,
although to bunt In those days was
considered 11 "baby act."
"(lllllgan, after he would catch two
strikes, would cover the plate from
the umpire's view by stooping almost
over It. When the next ball came over
whether It was a strike or not, he
would snap the ball to the shortstop
or bccond bnsemau.
"Tho umpire generally sang out
'Three strikes I' Just as I'arrell was
apparently putting the hall on the
runner. That fellow was a wondet
at blulllng 11 putout, and got credit for
lots of outs he never made.
"Providence worked every angle and
used their heads from the minute the
batter came to the plate. He had to
outguess Dadbotirne to get on, nnd
then light 11 battle with him If he tool;
nn Inch off llrst. At second, If he tried
to steal, it was almost n cinch he
would he culled out on account ot
Karrell's marvelous ability for faking
tho 'touch.' If he went to third, ho
had to cut around the third baseman
and shortstop, who were always In his

MANKIND'S DEBT TO THE DOG

We Itnve been accustomed lately to

to tho dog dates back to very ninny
