NEW YORK. Oct 11 While the
Giants and Rod Box were locked In
their third desperate clinch I sat be
side "Petey" Simmons, now a rising
young business man of Chicago, but
not so very long ago a student at
Blwash Collego, and one ot the most
tropical of Its campus exotics.
"Great crowd," said he as four tncn
raced for the last bleacher seat, "fine
mcu Jt people for a little burg liko
Boston. We don't do better than thli
In Chlcaco. Bee 'em dropping over
that bleacher fence like molasses flow
ing; over a quart measure. I've hoard
a lot of thing about nostoni but you
' can't, tell me that a lecture here on the
brainstorms ot Browning would draw
any crowd like thin. Boston U all right.
Che may bo a little dippy on sacred
tombstones and famlt forestry, but she
knows a mllllon-volt ball team when
he sees one. I'm proud of Boston."
"I wish they'd stop scattering auto
mobiles around, and play ball," he
ttrowled a minute later as .Speaker
drove oft In his prise car. "That's tho
wont thing about these post-mortem
games. Tou always have to hung
around while they parcel out the auto
mobiles and sliver bats and private
yavehti, and country houses.
"Baseball makes me nervous. Its
getting too wealthy. Suppose Speaker
should pound oft a 3,000 finger nail to
night while he was heading up his
hare of the day's receipts. Whut
would happen? The Bolton team would
lose 1100,000, four dozen automobiles, a
bale of vaudeville contracts, nlno
farms, and a trip around the world.
"Suppose Matthewson should break
,175,000 worth of arm this winter, be
cause a nickel's worth of gasolene
Should back-fire. Think what It would
do to real estate around 160th street In
New York. The tariff problem doesn't
worry me, but whenever I think that
Comlskey has to earn jr.0,000 a year
to pay the taxes on his ball park, and
that Ed. Walsh has only ono money
"Oh,, here they start.
"Qosn, watch that man Devore'go to
first. Has he got two lega or seven?
lie doesn't have to have a batting aver
, age. He's got a legging average of
about 1.000 foot tracks a minute., There
he twinkles yards off ot first, SDd It
O'Brien stops watching htm .''long
enough to wink his left eye, he'll have
second. Ixioks bad. First man up got
a clean hit. In some towns I know
the fans would be starting home now.
That's the difference between pennant
winning towns and others."
Marquard Some Statue.
Petey subsided until New York went
out on two long files, and the tall, sad
Marquard came out and psaed
"Help," Petey muttered. Impatiently,
"will some one kindly wade out and tell
Ilube that the sculptor has a good like
ness now. What's he trying to do?
Walt until Speaker forgdts how to bat?
He looks Aim leaning up against noth
ing, with his poor, tired hands draped
on his shirt front, but I've got the
pose by heart.
"Ye godsl watch him stretch. . That
ball will get dlzxy it he holds It any
higher. Wow! when he docs mako up
his mind to part with it he doesn't let
it loat any. I'll' bet he's shot Chief
Meyers full ot holes this summer. But
why does he waste so much time?
Election Is coming.
"Watch Herxog on third," continued
Petey eagerly. "He's been making a
political speech ever since he got out
there. He's one ot those men who
plays all the time with mouth and hands
and feet That makes ninety-two re
marks he's made to Ilube In the last
minute. What's he asking him to do,
tight Mexico? He's pure tobaxco, Her
sog is. Watch him. He's mad at the
universe. I'd give a lot to see Herxog
and Johnny Evers In a talking
"Say, those Giants are pure fight
today. Tncyre tne fiercest bunch
when they are ahead that I ever saw.
Watch those three chaps after that
foul, watch 'em yammer at the bleacher
fence as It goes over. Weren't they
hungry for It? That's baseball of the
eat-'em-up sort, when you see a team
going after raw meat tne way these
Giants are today.
"Look out there; see Murray coast
ing on his shoulders and holding onto
that two-bagger he's Just cut off In Its
jouthT That's football nerve. A good
fielder's got to be a cross between a
halfback and a porch climber -anyway.
If I was a fielder In one of these new
re-enforced concrete parks I'd make
the management put rooo ladders on
the walls. It's hard on the finger nails
climbing 'em without any noia,

Baseball Is like humanity. You can get

He stopped abruptly, because Her
xog had doubled and scored and O'Brien
had gone up In a beautiful spiral, walk
ing two mep and filling the bases.
Fletcher, Devore, and Doyle were danc
ing on the bags and Petey got excited.
"Now wouldn't that make you sigh
for a quiet life In a parachute If you
were a pitcher?" he demanded, "If
there are three men In the world that
won't stay put on bases It's those three.

they'll score In platoons. Bang watch

Just for O'Brien's sake I'll wine a quart

The game grew old, and Boston still
tolled, scoreless. Petey grew Impa
tient. "Now what makes me tired Is
the wav baseball fans waste their op
portunities," he grumbled. "Here's
35.000 of them, and what are they doing?
Waving a few banners and cheering at
stated Intervals. Why don't they root?
Why don't they make a noise? Many'a
the time we've blown a halfback over
the last two yards at Slwash with a
little extra yelling. Why, I haven't
beard anything here or In New York
that we could call a warming-up yell'

rooters would only use their mouths In

though, Stahl Is some considerable
player. Why, when he was back In the
University of Illinois at G. Huff's base
ball conservatory they used to line up
on either side of the walk and bow to
him when he went Into chapel."
Stays Through Ninth.
The first half of -the ninth passed.
With Boston two behind. Speaker hit
one so high that It came down with
frost on It In Fletcher's hand. Lines
of fans began to leave.
"Not me," said Petey, grimly, "a little
fun In the ninth la worth eight -Innings

Lewis on first, and wowl a double
and one score. Listen to the bugs
wow I that's real noise for you. There,

"What I Did that giraffe-legged barrel-fisted
streak ot light out In right
reach that ball, and the game's over?
And New York not only got out of the
laws of defeat, but crawled half a mile
back out of Its esophagus.
"Well, that's baseball. It's pure ro
mance. I'm satisfied. I've seen a great
game and I've got a heart lesion. Come
on We may get a finger on an up

This Murray's not like Lillian Russell. You couldn't make him look like her if you equipped him with a.
bustle and decked him out in gems and fur. His jaws are lank, his hair is sorrel, his legs remind you of a
itork'i; but now he's losded down with laurel, he seems a beauty in New York. Last year the low-browed fans
were saying that Murray was a total loss. "At better work then bush league playing hell surely never come
across." And now the fans, in freniied phrases, say he' alone is playing ball. "Oh, when he hits he hits like
biases, and in the field he beats them all There never was such vim or ardor as you will find in Murray's
frame." And so they yell, and then yell harder until they' interrupt the gsme. All o'er the land his praise Is
ringing; it's 'Murray this and Murray that and doubtless glee clubs will be singing a serenade before his flat.
His bust will be in all the papers with low-necked vest, scrambled hair; and girls adore him while be capers around
the diamond, heels in air. Oh, Murray is the Isd can hustle upon the green where goose eggs grow, so what's
the odds if Lillian Russell can beat him at a beauty show. WALT MASON.
