the temperature took a brace, and the
snow turned Into a misty rain? Well,
that same rise In temperature played
particular havoc In E street, near the
vicinity of Ninth. It was at the Palace
bowling alleys that the principal dam

a duckpin match between Chapin

and Woodward & Lothrop, of Wash

We find ourselves pulling for Joe Rivers, the Mexican pug, to win,

The Farrell-Chance deal is assuming even greater proportions day by
day. It looked to be quite an enterprise at the start a mastodonlc ar
rangement all around. But the most telling feaure of the whole business
carries in the fact that they are at last able to pay a ball player as much
for what he can do in seven months on the ball field as he can possibly get
for two months in vaudeville.
No wonder the pulse of the populace leaped, fluttered, and thumped.

PORTLAND. Ore.. Jan. 11. Fielder
Jones, president of the Northwestern
League, and former manager of the
world's champion Chicago White Sox In
1306, can't see much hopes of uccess
for Frank Chance, and doesn't hesitate
to say so.
"If Chance puts the Yankees in the
first division in three years." says
Jones, "he will be doing a wonderful
thing. However, the fans will be knock
ing him so much long before that that
most of his ambition will be lost,"
Sooner or later we'll be lamping where "Mathewson fanned Doyle and
Meyers in a pinch." or where "Baker and Collins were helpless before the
great pitching of Bender, who had one of his best days before Johnson re
lieved him in the eighth."
When a man like McCarty talks of a "long rest and ?30,000 before -I
fight again" and still gets by with it, there Isn't any rebuttal, rejoinder, or
reply. There isn't even an answer or counter remark.

Song of Dixieland
By GORDON MACKAY.
You look toward baseball's hero and you find he camt from me.
The mighty Cobb and Speaker are both wonders you'll agree.
I gave you Joseph Jackson; I sent Rucker to your throng.
I've honored you and helped, and I've boosted you along.
When Redland reads of Benton and then puts on its lugs,
Let her remember also that I gave her George Suggs.
When thirty thousand dollars went bing by Snodgrass' muff,
I sent the man who did it, and Clyde Englc had the stuff.
The poor, downtrodden Yankees, who finished in last place,
Found Ford and Sweeney ready, that forlorn team to grace,
With Mowrey in St. Louis, my list's complete and -done.
For every mother's boy of them basked 'neath my beaming sun.
