Fur some je;, in luiM'-liall has lieon
fiiiuliiclfil on rcirnlitr Im-iiiess princi
tili's, luit not until ri'i'i'iilly liavu such
salaries lieeii Jiaiil. The ireeiit
ft vie of liilchinir i-i reiion.silile for the
cnorinoin salaries which the "kings of
the irofesion" ileinaiiil. The best
jiitcliers get as much inoney for work
in"; a few hours each day ilurin"; seven
Months as many college professor re
ceive for their' ctire year's service.
This has not always been the ea-'e. The
lir.t r al profesi(iti;il nine was the fam
ous Cincinnati Keil-sloikino's, which
were established in lsd'.t. There bad
been many clubs throughout the coun
try, which, previous to this time, bad
paid two or three players for their ser
vices, just as many of our alleged
strictly amateur" nines do at present.
The Ileil Stockings were the first club,
however, to take men on contracts and
to pay every one on the team. Harry
and (Icorge right received the liigli-c.--t
salaries paid in the club, and neither
was the regular pitcher. Said (ieorgo
AV right: "The money paid the entire
team would put a poor nine in the field
to-day. My brother Harry was the
most'expensivc man in the 'team, and
ho got Hi for being cnjilain and
playing ccnter-lield. 1 was in my reg
ular position at short, and drew Sl.Miui.
Tin' catcher came next in order, and
the other men ranged from that sum
tlu n. Several came under Jt'l.OiK).
"It would seem that lielders wero
considered to be worth as much as
jiitcliers and catchers in thoe days.
" "'That's it, exactly. A club without
Tl strong out lield was as weak then-as
cue would be now w ith a poor battery.
F.very man had to l c a player, and the
pitcher was of no more importance
than any other man in the team. Why,
almost ninnne who pretended to boa
good player could go into the box with
n little practice and do well. And
then, of course, the catching was quite
different from what it is now. A man
who held a throAii ball would go be
hind the bat in an emergency and ac
quit himself very creditably. Now, if
your pitcher ghes out oii might as
Wejl stop playing; and it is jut the
same willt the catcher. It makes no
difference how good your other seven
men are, ni nre nowhere if the battery
"Were the Cincinnati Hed Stockings
eer troubled this way?-'
"Well, we went through our first
hc'imiii with ten men, and you can judge
fur yourself how many extra batteries
we could have had. The pitcher did
not try to see bow many ln'cotild strike
out, but Used bis head and showed his
skill by changing his speed so that the
bat -man would be deceived and not hit
II. e ball hard. I'.ven if he was batted
hard it was nothing against him and no
one -aid he had lost the game. Whv,
if one nine made six or seven runs hi
an inning the other nine was not by
any means defeated, and thought noth
ing of this lead.
With the changes in the style of
pitching have coiue higher wages for
the players, until now a base-ball team
i- an cii'ii-.he in-t it til 'n in. New York
has the two men who are paid more for
plating ball than any others in the
world. Th'-v are Ward and F.wing,
and each receives a little over sc'i.iiwo
for the pre ent -ca (ill. The New Vol ks
lire called the "high-priced team," but
several f the men are hhvd at low tig

When the colored balls 'were eorraled

pocket. 'J'be player looked at Pete,
who laughingly remarked:

led him back to Ihe pool table.

with a benevolent look, "I'll betch a

Two mm dollar bills were solemnly

strokes, Then Pete took olV'his jacket

SUPPRESSING A BORE.
An fnlnvltril Gurat Who Could Not Stand
the Ilorae I'luy In u Iteatmiriuit.
A few nights ngo, says Tho New York
Sun, a party of six men sat nt a corner
table iu an uptown restaurant, taking
supper with a seventh man, who had
been rendered somewhat conspicuous
among men about town by his sudden
resolve to renounco his former easy
going nnd luxurious stylo of living for
the purpose, of marrying a yo ng wo
man who lived in Hrooklyn. The din
ner was about half over when a man
drifted iu through tho lower door of
the cafe and with a flamboyant smile
toward the supper party, lie walked
daintily, carrried his cane under his
nrm, tiiul a cignretto in his left" hand.
Ho was dressed in a light business suit,
nnd might bo anywhere from lM to 70
years of ngo. Ho had a gray mustache,
patchy whiskers, and" wore his hair
full over his ears nnd bald at the top.
"This gentleman," said tho host,
waving bis hand toward the newcomer,
"is the most stupendous bore in New
York. In the course of fifteen years I
have found it impossible to sit down at
a meal in a cafe or go to a decent up
town bar withotitiieing bored by this
cheerful imbecile. Of course you nil
know him. Ho will ring iu on us
The stranger bowed with great affa
bility to everybody, including the wait
er, continued to smile effusively, drag
ged up a chair without further invita
tion, and wedged himself in between
the host and a tall young man with a
gigantic mustache who had just come
from Keokuk, and had never beforo
met the "Commodore," as the boro
was called. The stranger immediately
pretended to bo deaf, and smiled va
cantly but pleasantly upon the commo
dore. That worthy toyed with his
gray moustache for a moment, and
then began to talk to him. The Keo
kukian insisted upon a repetition of ev
ery word until he had the commodoro
on his feet bawling into his ear. Still
the western man smiled vacan ly, and
suddenly conceiving that he had been
insulted, gravely tilled a champagne
glass full of vinegar and insisted upon
the commodore's drinking it. Thero
was a great deal of simtil ted excite
ment, but in the end. in order, ns ho
said, to avoid a row in the restaurant,
the commodore succumbed, and drank
the glass to the hitler dregs. Then ho
put bis band into his vest pocket to get
a match, and brought out a pat of but
ter which one of lln party had placed
there during the excitement. Another
member of ihe group bad poured half
the contents of Ihe crimt of cayenne,
pepper into the pocket of the unfortun
ate commodore during tin-struggle, nnd
when he pulled out his handkerchief
he sneezed seven times. He lighted
his cigarette, however, said boys would
be boys, nnd then laid his cigarette on
the edge of the table whilo he rescued
his hat from the hands of a small man
who had been regarding it curiously.
The host carefully and thoughtfully
turned tho commodore's cigarette
around, so that when he picked it up
again he naturally put the lighted end
into his mouth.
Hv this time he had grown a bit flus
tered, but ho still smiled and said that
lio enjoyed good company ns well as
anybody if he could only have an oc
casional drink. A glass of champagne
was handed to him and he raised it to
Ids lips. Hefore he could drink it, how
ever, one of the men clutched bis arm
and begged him to wait until he had
told a story. Six times the cominodore
raised the gl iss to his lips and six
times he was obliged to put it down,
until Jinally another glass was substi
tuted without his knowledge which
contained some tobacco and castor oil,
with a dash of sweet oil on top to give
il llavor. Here an eloquent member of
the party rose to his feet and command
ed everybody to rise and drink the
health of the host in a bumper.
This was the first chance the commo
dore had had, and he junrped up and
tos-cd oil' the contents of the glass at a
gulp. The effect was extraor inary.
1 1 is eyes closed and opened . with the
rapidity and precision of a trip-hammer
running at an extraordinary speed, his
jaw dropped, and he gave a yell that
would have done credit to a "drunken
Sioux. Then he put on his hat, which
did not lit very well in consequence of
four pats of butter which the small
man had put under the lining, said:
"Gentlemen, I have had a very largo
time," dashed through tho doorway
nnd ran up Hroadway with an exhibi
tion of speed which caused the jellow
cab drivers to turn around iu their
seats and look niter him with solemn
