Joe Agler, the first baseman, and
"lied" Herring, tho pitcher obtained
from tho Nebraska Indians last Bum
mer, have been cold to tho Atlanta club
of the Southern League, under optional
agreements, which may bring them
both back to the Climbers In case they
mako good with Hilly Smith's aggrega
tion. Agler was the best fielding firut base
man In tho Southern League last year,
though his light hitting precluded his
success In fast company. However.
Manager Griffith took him for a trial,
little thinking he would hang on. Ho
worked In one game.
Herring Is green as a twlrlcr, though
he showed signs of having a good splt

Hilly Smith Is a good friend of Grif

training. Smith Is known as one of
the best handlers of voung players In
tho country, and ho will keep an eye on
the lads who some day may be world
beaters In Washington uniforms.
Long for Atlanta.
Tommy Long, the "Gadsden galloper,"
sent to Mobile lust year by Manager
Griffith, will be given a trial at Char
lottesville, but Is not expected to Im
press the eagle ee of his manager well
enough to hold a place with the team.
Long can't hit hard enough to oust
either Mueller or bhanks, and his field
ing and throwing Is crude compared
with theirs, if 1111 1 Smith can use him.
Long may be sent to Atlanta also.
Roy Moian, obtained from Chatta

Griffith will come away after ten
days If he meets with good weather
and the men round to In that short
time. Most of the training will be
done In actual games at Florida av
