pill DanIen Gets Fourteen Chances at
8hort, While Jack Glasscock
Didn't Have One.
The uncertainties of baseball were
shown in a game that St. Louis and
Chicago played on May 7, 1895. Bill
Dahlen, playing shortstop for the
Cubs, had and accepted 14 chances at
Ms position. Johnny Glasscock at
short for the Browns did not have a
phance during the entire nine innings
I Dahlen was afterwards released to
pie Boston National league team and
finally landed as manager of the
^rooklyns, the position he now occu
Cause of Many Injuries.
This is the year 1912. Count the
Ifour figures in the year. They total
18. Ball players are prone to point
to that in explaining the large amount
pf Injuries sustained by players this
season. Never have the injured lists
bf clubs been so heavy. Accidents In
ball games are dally occurrences. It
Is getting so that players think be-
ATHLETICS RELEASE STERLING PITCHER
Harry Krause, Southpaw, Sent to Toledo.
When Connie Mack sent Pitcher
Harry Krause down to Toledo the
wise ones shook their heads sagely
and whispered that the Athletics are
done as pennant contenders for this
fear at least. They looked on the re
lease of Krause as a confession of
the -weakness of Mack's pitching staff,
the first break in his lins of veterans.
It means that Mack had resolved to
defend on newcomers and take a long
chance. Krause was the American
league sensation in 1909, but seemed
taking chances in fielding and
are shy about "hitting the dirt"
to shoot his entire bolt that year.
Never strong, he was ill the next year
and though he went better in 1911,
could not stand the going as a big
league twnler must This spring he
took on weight and believed he would
show strength, but when his services
were needed most, with Bender lame
and Coombs hurt, he failed, and Mack
let him go to make room for a desper.
ate chancesome new collegian. And
that is all Mack seems to have as a
pennant hopea desperate chance.

Flinn was particularly emphatic
when he stated to Colonel Roosevelt
that there would be smart breaks in

said "our Taft triends are banking

In "Jinx" Line.
Although Boston's pitchers have
been going rather poorly of late, the
team has been batting and fielding in
good style, and Manager Jake Stahl
has the players and the Boston pop

In Cicotte, Hall, O Brien, Woods,

Philadelphia fans took off their hats
to John McGraw because he "consent

Phillies a chance to brace, but It ap

the postponements and "consented"
because the home club exercised its
authority and said the grounds were

Senate Passes Bill For Purohase by
Government of Land en South
8lde of Pennsylvania Between
Treasury and Capitol.
By GEORGE CLINTON.
Washington.In a recent article the
Intention of a large part of Washing
ton to "move on" the national conven
tions was told about and something
was given of the personnel of the
"movers." Added to them should be
certainly fifty or sixty members of
the foreign legations now on service
for their governments at the oapital
of the United States. Never before In
the history of this country, it is said,
has there been such interest on the
part of foreigners in a presidential
campaign as is the case this year.
The members of the national com
mittee of each party have been asked
to set aside seats for several foreign
ambassadors and ministers and for
many of the subordinates of the em
bassies and legations. It Is known that
foreign governments take a great in
terest in American political affairs
and while the thing is not done pub
licly, they are kept informed by their
representatives in this country of the
various impending political changes
and of the probable chances of the
candidates, coupled probably with
statements as to just what changes in
the administration are likely to mean
in connection with treaty matters or
with the attitude of this government
toward foreign governments general*
Uncle Sam May Buy Land.
A bill has just passed the senate of
the United States appropriating $15,-
OOtyOOO to be used by the government
for the purchase of all the land lying
on the south side of Pennsylvania ave
nue between the treasury building and
the capitol The bill was introduced
by Senator Heyburn and it went
through the senate quickly. What its
fate In the house will be at this ses
sion no one can tell yet, but eventual
ly probably it will pass.
The government owns already a
large part of the land lying between
Pennsylvania avenue and the Potomac
river, but there is a big section of it
bordering on the avenue and extend
ing to the park in which the agricul
tural buildings are situated, which is
given over to business, stores, mar
kets, small hotels and lumber yards.
It is for this section that Mr Hey.
burn's bill provides the money for pur
chase. For several years attempts
have been made to get congress to ap
propriate the money to buy the busi
ness section of Washington south of
Pennsylvania avenue between the lim
its named The fine arts commission
has recommended the purchase and
now that the senate has passed the
bill, the legislation probably will go
through. In a few years it is likely
that the visitor at the capital on pass
ing down Pennsylvania avenue from
the treasury to the capitol will have
on his right a view unbroken save by
trees and by fine public buildings, and
extending as far as his eyesight ad
Fine Street, Poor Buildings.
Pennsylvania avenue between the
treasury and the capitol Is a fine
broad thoroughfare, but the buildings
on it are small and ugly in the main,
and except for Its breadth and for the
fine buildings at either end of the in
cluded part Is it not much to look up
on. Visitors here are tremendously
disappointed in the avenue and they
say so. Thousands of persons have
written to congress urging that the
"great national street" be improved
and the Improvement suggested in al
most every case has been to remove
business entirely from the south side
of the thoroughfare and leave it wide
open to the river.
Congress has been completely over
shadowed this winter by polltios.
Bcores of things of national moment
have been before the legislators, but
it seems that the press and the people
In the main have been interested
more in what the various candidates
were doing to secure their nomination
than In what congress was doing in
the way of legislation. The work of
congress this year has not been of
the kind called sensational, but in a
good many Instances it has been use
ful to the people.
There have been all kinds of investi
gations going on over on Capitol Hill
and when they started they attracted
Immediate interest and attention, but
a good deal of the interest has gone
and probably will not revive until the
subjects are brought up again after
the election next November. Attempts
have been made to cut down appro
priations In the interest of economy
and the debates on this "saving sub
ject" have been keen and interesting,
for while one party has insisted that
(the cuts were for economy only, the
pther party has insisted that the gov
ernment services would be crippled
and that it was not real economy at
all. v*. i%
Pension legislation Seems to be
about the only thing which has at
tracted widespread Interest. Of course
there are hundreds of thousands of
persons in the country who are inter
ested in this subject financially and
this may account for the closeness
with which the pension legislation has
been followed. %Qqb$I^^Z~&^
Love at First Sight, rj^
Think of it! "No such thing as
love at first Bight!" Why, the idea
is preposterous! Every man who was
once a boy, and every woman who was
once a girl, can testify by personal
experience that there is such a thing
as love at first sight, and even the
recollection, of it causes the oldest
hearts to flutter again. Every writer
of novels and every reader of them
can add to the testimony of love at

Omega Watches are finely finished and carefully ad-

friction to an irreducible minimum. In addition the
