Few Southpaws In Minors.
After several weeks spent in ob
Bcrving the work of young players in
the minor leagues throughout the
country Arthur Irwin, scout for the
New York Americans, has come to the
conclusion that the left handed pitcher
Is dying out.
"I have combed the bushes this year
ns never before," said Irwin, "and
never did I see such a scarcity of
Fouthpaws. I cannot account for It,
except on the theory that left handed
persons are getting rare in all walks
"In my travels this season I saw
few left handed pitchers, fewer than
I ever saw in all my years iu base
ball. I'll venture the prediction that
nest season there will be fewer new
southpaws in tho big leagues than in
any season in twenty-five years."
To Revive Seven Mile Walk.
Thousands of heel and too enthusi
asts will be pleased with the announce
ment that there is to bo a revival of
tho seven mile walk, which has not
been decided iu this country for twenty-eight
years. It will take place in
conjunction with tho nnnual ten mile
national championship at the Newark
motordrome on Saturday, Oct. 20.
If this once popular sport is to regain
Its high place in athletics the younger
generation must bo impressed with its
delights and rewards. Within the last
two years mauy attempts have been
made to revive walking, only to meet
with reverses because some officials
don't take kindly to that stylo of com
petition. Wood Sets Pitching Record.
"When Joe Wood, star pitcher of the
Red Sox, turned in a season's record
of thirty-four victories to live defeats
for an average of .872 he sot a pitch
ing mark which has never been
reached in modern times. Iteulbach
of tho Chicago Nationals came tho
nearest to it with .S2C in 1000, while
Mathewson's best was made in 1001
ut .814. Mathcwson, however, has
twice won moro than thirty-four
victories in a season. Ho took thlrty
fivo In 10W and thirty-seven In 1003.
In bis long career Mathewson has
collected U13 victories against 1-13 de
feats, an average of .CCS.
Swedes Keep Ernie Hjertberg,
Ernie Hjertberg did such a good Job
preparing the Swedish team for this
year's Olympiad that it was a foregone
conclusion that ho would bo asked to
retain his position to prepare tho
Swedes for the Berlin Olympics four
years hence. Patriotic Swedes have
contributed nearly tho full amount re
quired, principally through tho gene
rosity of the Johnson brothers, weal
thy steamship owners of Stockholm.
It is said that tho coach's salary will
be close to 5,000 for tho four years.
New Head of Yale's Hockey Team.

FOR THE CHILDREN
A Cat's Bravery.
Cats show great bravery in protect
ing their kittens. There is no enemy
that may approach a cat with kittens
and remain unattacked.
Once n cat was playing with her
children nlmut a barnyard when sud
denly a large hawk appeared on the
scene and, seizing a kitten, soared
away. The mother cat gave a tre
mendous Jump, caught the bird and
made it drop its prey. A drcudful bat
tle ensued. The hawk fought with
battling wings, sh:rp talonn and crook
ed heal;. Mrs. Puss used month and
claws, and though deprived of one
eye she struggled untU she sin (.veiled
In breaking tho lmtf's wings and
Anally laying It dead. Nearly exhaust
ed and bleeding, she tore off her ad
versary's head In great delight and.
regardless of her sufferings, ran to
tho bleeding kitten, licked Its wounds
that the hawk's tnlons had made and
purred over the Itten with a great
feeling of content and happiness. Phil
Each member of tho company must
have n piece of paper and write a
number on It. The papers are then
put in a bag and shulllod up and each
player draws one. They must now
open their papers in turn, give the
number written on It, and Instantly
name something or some one con
nected with such a number. For In
stance, say there are live players, this
is how they would play the game
when they had drawn their numbers:
1. My number Is four the four sea
sons. 2. My number Is three the throe
3. My number Is one the president.
4. My number Is cloven tho world's
champion baseball team.
C. My number is twelve tho twelve
months of tho year.
Any one unable to think of n subject
In connection with tho number drawn
pays a forfeit. All forfeits must be
redeemed at the end of tho game.
The Queen's Cherries.
Sir Francis Carew once undertook to
entertain Queen Elizabeth at his seat
at Ueddlngton, and ho had promised
tho queen that sho should havo cher
ries freshly picked from his orchards.
Unfortunately tho queen announced
her intention of paying her visit nearly
a month after the ordinary season for
ripe cherries. However, Sir Francis
was equal to the occasion. Ho care
fully covered one of his cherrs trees
with a large canvas cover as soon as
the fruit began to form. Thus the sun
was kept off and the crop ripened very
slowly indeed, especially as the cover
was kept damp. A few days before
tho queen was duo to arrive the cover
was removed, and tho brilliant sum
mer sunshine speedily brought the
fruit to , perfection, so that Queen
Elizabeth was delighted to receive at
the hands of a page a dish of the fin
est cherries, long past tho proper sea
son for such delicacies.
Always Fairy Tales.
There has never been a language
spoken that has not been used for
telling fairy tales. Whether In hot
lands or cold, among savages or tho
most cultivated nations why, not 0
moment passes in which some one,
somewhere, Is not telling a fairy tale,
or listening to one, or reading one, or
perhaps writing a now one. Which
makes it delightfully probable that we
shall always havo them with us, how
ever scarce tho fairies may havo made
themselves In these prosaic and prac
tical days. St, Nicholas.
Home Life of the Grebe.
Unlike most birds, the grebes do not
brood their eggs continually, according
to a writer In Outing. It is only at
night and on cloudy days that you
will find them nt home. As soon as
the sun has risen and warmed tho
chilly morning air tho old bird leaves
her nest, and, collecting decaying vege
tation from tho shore or bottom of
tho lake, she covers the eggs with a
thick layer and leaves tho sweltering
mass of steaming muck to hatch them
while sho spends tho day in Idleness or
Origin of a Saying.
"A feather In one's cap" Is derived
from Scotland. Among tho woodcraft
enthuslahts It was tho custom for the
Individual first to kill a woodcock to
pluck out u feather nnd place It in his
cap. Oliver Cromwell conferred dig
nity upon this expression when, on his
refusal of tho English crown, ho ob
served: "Koynlty is but a feather in

Montenegro, tho state that opened

a kingdom by the national parliament

formerly a province of tho old Servian
empire, which came to an end In 13S9,
since which date It has always claim

A Matter of Application.
On tho marriage of a favorlto
nephew, reasoning that the couplo
would receive all sorts of costly pres
ents, an old lady who was n great
lover of gardens sent them a fine
edition of a book on flowers. Sho
wrote their names therein, together
with an inscription. Promptly came
n note from tho nephew, acknowledg
ing tho gift with profuse thanks.
"The book Is no end jolly, and It's tho
only book we got, iiid wo both thank
you ever so hard; but, confidentially,
dear Aunt Martha, Louise was Just
a llttlo hurt over the Inscription. Are
we really as bad as all that?"
Aunt Martha was puzzled for just n
minute; then she remembered that the
inscription was: "O all ye green things
upon tho earth, bless yo the Lord;
praise him and magnify him forever."
