stricken with illness and fainted. Fori thronohnut this nireuifc ouened their

win oe g?atmea w learp. 0f nis early the release of the Cincinnati boy.
Few around this station understand
the affair as it really is but if Cantil
lion wants Mayer he can acquire himi
without the least trouble or hitch, due
entirely toa little deal, secretly, of
course, but which finally leaked out,
and the best Paris can do is to set up
and bemoan the fact they were the
vie ims of an unforseen calamity, the
loss of the best catcher in the Blue
Gras9 and of one thousand five hun
dred good hard fcimoleons.
It happened 'way last spring, long
before the snow had ceased to fly and
the warmth of Old Sol would permit
ball players to venture out in the open
and work the kinks out of the muscles
that had been in idleness all of the
winter. It came out in a way that
Paris least expected, and the beat that
can be done is to take the medicine
and let Minneapolis take Mayer.
Last April the Cantililon tribe.hunt
ing for training quarters, dropped
around in this section, while a number
were sent farther into the beautiful
Southland, a squad under Cymer, took
up headquarters at Hickman, later at
Lexington and then drifted into Paris.
In the squad were included such cele
brities as Mick Althrock, Rube Wad
dell, Clymer and Hub Dawson, the
latter a former Blue Grass Leaguer.
They were scheduled for a game
here, and McKernan was to pick up a
nine in Cincinnati and come over tor a
clash with the Millers. The weather
waR icnlement in the extreme, and a
j light fall of snow killed the cnances
for the meeting on the diamond, so tne
squad csmped around the stove in the
comfortable hotel lobby, telling stories
and playing over the most exciting
games of their career.
It was in the hotel lobby that the
foundation for the agreement was laid.
President Bacon was a frequent caller
at the hostelry down town and hobnob
bed with the players. Intimacy be-
Itween the head of thp Paris club and
Clymer grew, then the latter put in a
good" word with Cantillion for the
Bye and bye the warm days relied
around and with it came two players
for spring practice and the try-out.
With them came McKernan, and in a
few short days Walter Mayer follow
ed. Mayer played'around the Queen
City and first came into prominence
when Griffith offerel to take him on
the Southern trip with the Reds. He
was little thought of then as anything
other than a good catcher for a bush
The depleted pitching staff of the
Paris club needed strengthening and
the sale of Scott made it necessary to
look around for a shortstop. Who
could turn the trick better than
Cantillion. He was appealed to and
for the pick of the Pris club he was
to send down two good men. Still
Mayer was not looked upon as a big
league possibility as he had not had
the chance to make a show.
From Minneapolis came Shears and
McKelvy, the latter to fill at short and
the former to hurl. Still the club
leaders were unsuspecting. In a short
time McKevly was set adrift because
he could not connect with the ball and
put into Frankfo-t where he played
for a time.
Then came Billy Doyle, the St.
LouisJAmerican scout, who dropped in
to look 'em over. Mayer's work
caught his eye in a minute and he
made an offer of $1,500 for the catch
er. The eyes of the club officials were
opened. What was to be done? Noth
ing, absolutely nothing. The agree
ment had been signed and lodged with
Secretary Farrell. Cantillion held the
rope. Now comes a press dispatch
trom Minneapolis to the effect that
Mayer had been signed by that club as
Cantillion will take no chance on be
ing short on backstops since the re
lease of Dawson.
Seven hundred and fifty dollars each
for two men is a pretty big price for a
minor league to pay. In McKelvy the
Paris club received a mess of pottage
and realizing this he was stricken
from the roster. Shears is doing well,
the fact is he is one of the very best
in this company, but withal we think
he would be free to admit that he
wouldn't be worth that much of any
bush league club's money even if he
possessed the throwing arm of Marty
