POLICE DEFEAT FIREMEN

Billy Kepulveda's friends turned out.
in groat numbers yesterday afternoon
to witness the baseball game between
the firemen and the policemen at
Chutes park, and oven though the er
rors came too many for counting, they
were overlooked in the spirit which
prompted the nffair, and when the
police won by a score of 9 to 6, it was
called h good game.
The features of the nine innings were
the home runs oC "Babe" Whalen of
Ibe peace guardians and Haven of the
fire laddies. Whalen's four-sacker was
a bounder to left field which cleared
the fence and Haven's perched in the
the right field bleachers while the loft
fielder made the circuit.
The Firemen made four in the first
on fi two-sacker, a pair of singles and
Haven's home run. Two singles anrl
innumberable errors gave the blue coats
one in the second, and the third saw
them with two more resulting from
three errors and a passed ball. The
extinguishers took one in the fifth, the
police coming back with two.

Manager McCarey Completes Fight
Card for Sullivan-Burns
Two rattling good fights will furnish
the preliminaries for tho Sullivan-
Burns battle October 17.
Manager McCarey completed his card
Saturday night by signing two local
welterweights for a six-round go at 14tf
pounds. These scrappers are young
Danaher and a lad named Mansfield.
The former has decided to abandon
his legal right to a cognomen in the
ring and announces that he will adopt
tho title of Rube Waddell, and as such
he will be billed and will attempt to
outshine the original of that name.
Waddell and Mansfield are said to he
representative chaps in their pugilistic
swaddllngs and McCarey believes they
will furnish no small part of the enter
tainment on the night of the big mill.
The lads are both confident of winning
and this confidence took a substantial
form when the articles were drawn up,
the provision being Inserted that the
winner should take all the purse.
Warren Zubrlek and Rube Jeffries
will meet at catch weights, the former
weighing in at 153 or thereabouts and
the Rube expressing the guess that
his weight will be In the neighborhood
This event will be an attraction of
great interest to local fight fans as
It will serve to give them a definite
line on the Rube. McCarey believes
that the catch weight proposition will
enable the Rube to show all that Is In
him and as It Is satisfactory to both
scrappers, the promise of one of the
best preliminaries ever pulled off In
Los Angeles is first class.
Despite the topheavy attraction for
October 17, Manager McCarey has de
cided not to advance the admission
prices and they will remain at $1, $2,
$3 and $5. It was generally under
stood that the $1 seats would be cut
out and advanced to double that price,
but it is not so.

EBE SPERRY SENT BACK TO THE
Eccentric Character Who Invented a

to Return to Institution
Ebe Sperry "the flytrap man" of the

Sperry is an old man, who has been
under treatment at the hospital for
about a year. During this period he
has devoted all his time to the inven
tion of a new style of fly trap, which
was to catch all the flies around the
county hospital. When the insects
were caught, Sperry proposed to make
them into soap. "Sir," he would say,
"files make the very best kind of soap."
When asked how he made the soap,
h« would shake his head mysteriously
and say that the formula was his most
cherished Kt-cret, for it would make
him wealthy when his process was
The old man was quite skillful with
tools and constructed from old packing
cases a fly trap that usually contained
a myriad of flies. It had an artfully
contrived entrance which the inventor
claimed excited the curiosity of the
files until they were unable to resist
trte temptation to walk into it. Pos
sibly the real attraction was the mass
of fishes' heads which Sperry put in
the trap as a bait for the files. "Sir,"
he would say. "I find, after careful
experiment, that files love the heads
of dead fishes better than anything
else in the world."
Sperry proposed to put one of his
fly traps at each entrance to the
grounds to catch the flies as they came
upon the premises. He also Intended to
set up traps at .convenient distances

fortune from the result of his labors.
When told that he would have to
leave the hospital last week, he said:

It would place all my business inter

HUSBAND AND WIFE STRICKEN
George Hoffman Attempts to Sell Wed.
ding Ring to Obtain Food and
Medicine, Attracting Attention
Suffering the pangs of hunger and
physical ills, poverty stricken and
without friends whs the condition in
which George Hoffman and his wife
were found by the police when they
investigated the husband's tale of woe
and want after he was arrested for at
tempting to sell his wife's weddtne
ring to obtain funds for the purchase
of medicine anrl food.
Investigation at 440 Wall street,
where they were staying, revealed thfc
fact that Hoffman was unable to work
because of rheumatism of the heart;
that he and his wife had eaten nothing
for three days because their funds were
exhausted, and that the woman was
ill with a malady which required an
operation to save her life.
Mrs. Hoffman was removed to the
county hospital and an operation was
performed Tuesday morning. While
yet in a critical condition, she Is now
able to relate some of the hardships
that she and her husband have en
dured during the last two months.
"We were married in Oakland two
years ago," said Mrs. Hoffman, "and
since then George and I have worked
together, he as a cook and I as his
helper. Sometimes when he has been
sick I have done his work for him in
addition to my own. He has always
been a good husband and if anything
happens to him I want to die, too.
"Two months ago we took work to
gether at the Kellogg hotel in Pomona
nnd there George was taken sick with
rheumatism of the heart. I had to
cook for him and my own health was
far from good. Our conditions contin
ued to grow worse and wo had to leave
there and take an easier job at Char
ley Hayes' camp at Ocean Park.
"But we became unable to work and
when we came to Los Angeles about
a week ago we had only $17. That very
quickly went for food and medicine. I
could not leave my bed, I was in such
pain. At last I took off my wedding
ring and told George to sell it and get
medicine to ease the intense rheumatic
pain from which he was suffering. We
know no one In this city and our rela
tives are far from here. We were
"I am worrying now about my hus
band. He sold some of Tny clothes
and brought some fruit to me here, al
though I am sure ho has not enough
to eat himself. Ho is an awfully good
boy and we have always stuck by each
other. If anything happens to him
I want to die."
