Some Guessers Ascribed It to
High Quality of His Work.
Wore Long. Silky Hair When He Was

Doubtless tunny have wondered how
It wns that Umpire O'Loughlln, who
recently passed nway, acquired tho
nickname of "Silk." Some guessers
ascribed It to the high quality of his
work, others to clean, line repartee,
but none Is correct. When ho was

cuused his brother to call him "Silk."
Tlie other boys were very quick to
udopt the new title, and "Silk" It
was from that time until he said
farewell to all.
"Silk" began his career as nn ama
teur In bis home city, Rochester,
N. Y., where he was connected with
some of thb best amateur teams. He
played baseball until 1801, when his
general technical knowledge of tho
gurne was recognized nntl he was
drafted Into the ranks of umplredom
In a somewhat precipitous manner.
The city of Itochcsler and vicinity
nlways was noted for Us high-class
nmateiir clubs, and the Intense rivalry
that existed between teams of that
city and the neighboring towns and
Tillages probably was unsurpassed In
any other section of the country. In
the season of 1S01 the town of Pal

sionals, among whom wns "Stump"
Weldman, formerly n member of tho
Detroit tenm and u brother-in-law of
"Silk"; Paul Cooke, who was con
nected with the Ilrooklyn brother
hood; Mark Haldwln, Pete Sweeney
and other headllners. Tho Palmyras
had an Important gnmo scheduled
with one of Its noted rivals. Consid
erable dllllculty had been experienced
before In procuring the services of r
coiupetont umpire, us the games were
ixtremely exciting and tho rivalry at
One of "Silk's" admirers suggested
to the management that he would be
just the man to olllclate as umpire In
this game. He was requested to olll

cisions clearly, distinctly, fearlessly
and with entire satisfaction to nil
concerned. , Ilo umpired the rest of
the series In the snnio acceptable
manner, and It limy bo said that this
was the beginning of his career as an
uniplie. For the remainder of that
season and for two succeeding sea

Falls (N. Y.) corrcspondcnL They
watched It grow until It attained a

There they found two stalks of corn

Tho stalks wero removed and
brought to town. They measured 0

Aviator's Heart Enlarged.
Doctors Utlenne and Lamy of Nancy,
Frnnce, have conducted n series of
N-rny examinations of tho hearts of
nvlntors and have found evldenco of

enlargement sets In early In tho Hy

Is roughly proportioned to the height
at which the aviator Is accustomed
to fly, so that simple examination of
the N-ray plate sulllces to determine
n man's branch of Hying service;
whether be Is doing chasing nnd
bombing work at high altitudes, or Is
engnged at harrying Infantry, etc., at
comparatively low altitudes.
