By GEORGE FITCH.
" BOSTON. Oct 13. "I want to tako
my hat oft to -old .J. Fltivfus," said
Petoy Simmons, as ho deftly Inserted
himself into tho last inch of stand
ing room in a Boston street car af
ter tho fifth world's series game.
"Who's ho?" I asked.
"You know him," said Potey, Im
patiently. "Pluvlus, Sohhy Jupe, tho old guy
who butts into a good ball garao
about tho fourth inning1 and rains on
it until they havo to rescue the box

time I ever know him to act de

Why, when today's game started 'the
mist was so thick that the base run

"Great discovery Wo made today,

on by tho other thumb for a rest.
"FIbbIi tho glad news to New York
that Mathowson Isn't ready to enter

lycars. When a man can get pestered
for five base hits. Including two thrcc

his team going to pieces behind him

i an then rcassomblo himself and hold
the other team down to fifteen feeble

Pjaise for Matty.
"Why did Matty get more cheer
than all Uie rest of them when ho
