THE KINDLY MR. McFARLAND
Tales Told At the Ringside
By W. A. Phelon
PETER BOYLE, pugilist, was getting on in years. He was baldheaded, some
what wizened, and a little wheezy in the windpipe. Also, sad to say, Mr.
Boyle, as often happens in the fistic world, was short of money. His fight
ing days were done; a political job had fallen down and Pete Boyle, once an idol
in the middle west, was up against it.
Mr. Boyle sought out Packey McFariand, the great battler, and, in his salad
days, a pupil of Mr. Boyle. To the sympathetic McFariand Peter lold his troubles,
and as he listened a great light broke upon Mr. McFariand. "Petey," quoth the
great fighter, "I'm your friend. Always have been. 111 do anything for you, and
right now, to show, my friendship, PH go get you lots of money."
"I am too old," objected Boyle, "to climb a porch or yegg a bank, and be
sides" "No such crudity," chirped the merry Mr. McFariand. "Down at South Bend,
Indiana, they wish me to meet somebody, anybody, for ten rounds, on a percent
age. You can still step some. I will meet you. You shall be Jeff Boyle, Canadian
lightweight champion. Put up the very best fight you know how. Go to it like
you did when you were a boy. Fight me as hard as you can tickle that crowd to
death and you shall have every dollar of the money. I won't even hold out car
fare, just to show my friendliness. That good, old face of yours, Petey, has been
very dear to me for many years, and I want to see it smiling in prosperity."
The game though antiquated Mr. Boyle trained bravely for the next ten
days, and before a big crowd of South Benders, faced the great McFariand, once
his pupil, now the star, ,and his rescuer from sorrow. The gong clanged; good
old Peter capered and catacoled even as fifteen years before and McFariand,
absent-mindedly, belted him one on the nose. They clinched, broke free, banged
and mixed. Old Peter warmed by the fray, made a showing that set the crowd
crazy. Suddenly a ton of brick fell on him, and he was getting it off his chest
when the bell sounded.
In the second round, P. McFariand cuffed his former master on the chops and
beak, rammed him in the ribs, and biffed him on the ears. "Welcome was the
gong, and old Peter sat in his corner, breathing hard but still uncowed. In the
third Peter swore the populace were throwing gloves at him. And so it went on,
through nine merry rounds, till the beginning of the tenth saw the crowd in joy
ous frenzy, and Mr. Boyle somewhat resembling a Hamburg steak, inferiorly
In the tenth, P. McFariand lit into the good old war horse with gay abandon.
Bang and c, whack and smite, he drove poor old Petey round and round the
ling. Three times Peter found the floor. Three times he bravely rose, taking
a storm of punches, and when the gong rang for the finish an aged warrior, bat
tered into a bald-headed jelly, was still in the ring.
P. McFariand, true to his word, handed all the money to Mr Boyie. "I'm
tickled to death, old friend," said he, "to give you all this coin, I told you I'd
rather see that old face of yours smiling in happiness than anything in all the
Mr. Boyle sighed through his frazzled features. "I appreciate your gener
osity," said he, "but if you were so fond of this old face of mine, why'n'ell did
you go and alter it so it will never be the same face any more?"

JOB "WOOD Is another product of
that wonderfully fertile land known
as Kansas. Joe developed back
there on a sod house ranch and he was
pitching hay before he pitched a base
ball. Joe Is as much a natural pitcher
as Mathewson is a cultivated Pnt.
Before he knew there was a baseball
league. Joe was slowing them over the
plate in the backlot sansas leagues
and making them break the way He
wished. Joe admits that he developed
all of his own curves, although he does
not pose as a self made master of tne
giiUe art of flinging.
Wood's first work was done as a
freshman In the University of Kansas.
There, in company with tho other corn
belt boys, he played on the college team
.md surprised the natives by his work.
Hutchinson. Kas., in the big stlcK
league, captured this prize package
after he had higher educated around
Lawrence for one year. Joe was
sleuthed by the big league cruisers
and finally towed into the Boston camp
by one of the Nick Carters who was
scouting for the frijole consumers.
Upon Wood, the world series largely
depends, slanting it from the Bostonlan
angle. Wood is but 22. New York
batters must not lay any odds on this
youth's age, for he has been in the
game long enough to get the timothy
out of his Gflettes. Joe will go into the
first game against the Giants, if the
Boston brew is good. What he does in
this Initial game will decide his im
mediate future, xlf the overgrowns
smash out his benders, Boston will
have to hustle a pitcher from the dis
card. Nothing of this kind is antici
pated or feared. Wood Is as steady as
an eight day Seth Thomas and is as
husky as a house mover. He may be
depended upon for as many games as
Jacob Stahl may request him to pitch.
He may not get away with all of his
games, but that lanky Kansan will
come out with credit
Exhibit C. the same being Hugh Jen
nings's contribution to the cause of
contemporary baseball history regard
ing the world series. Frank Chance
picked the Giants, Clark Griffith the
Boston Reds. Now Hughie pulls some
grass to the general opinion that it Is
McGraw who is the main stem ip the
championship series, thereby throwing
the preponderance of evidence on the
side of the National elub. McGraw,
In Jennings's admiring estimation, Is
the greatest little leader who ever
managed a baseball team or fought a
battle. Jennings sidesteps he real Is
sue by saying that neither team will
play up to Its game and to pick a win
ner on form would be to reverse the
running. Not discrediting Jake Stahl,
mind you, Hughie proceeds to laud the .

croeds -when crowding wins games,
eases off when the strain is a bit
tense, jollies the soreness out of a
player's bean and roasts the rules into

outcome of the world series, Jennings
says. Same being the final analysis of
the situation to date and being a tout
for the Giants.
Horace Fogel has followed Charles
Murphy's lead by declaring that the
Giants won the National league pen
nant through the crooked umpiring of
the National league umpires. Fogel is
president of the Philadelphia Nationals,
which team Is owned by the same syn
dicate as the Chicago Cubs. Murphy
said that the Cubs lost because they
boozed, when the fact remains that
they lost because they could not play
fast enough ball to win. Now Fogel
lays it on the umps., the poor, old, long
suffering dictators who ha-re had to
dodge pop bottles and side gate mobs
all season. Coming when it does, Ho
raclo's squeal is a little late. If he
knew anything of crookedness In the

disliked Barney's butting in when he,
Clarke, was running the smoke clt7

from the envelope. But friends inter

It was not always either that they

Big Teams Are Not Running
Away With the Extra Down
New JJule AHowine forward Pass to Be Thrown any Distance Gives Lighter
Elevens Better Opportunity in,F6otball Games.
3y HAMILTON FISH, JR.
NEW YORK. N. Y.. Oct 2. Taking
the opening game between Yale
and Wesleyan as a criterion, the
extra down given the offence in thi3
season's football games proved that
the rules committee had not gona too
far by strengthening the offence.
It was feared by some coaches that
the big college teams would be able to
rush the ball at will against the smaller
elevens, but the result of the Yale-Wes-leyan
game has shown that such is not
the case. The rule allowing the for
ward pass to be thrown any distance
gives a lighter team a better oppor
tunity on the offensive than ever be
fore. Field Goal Still Important.
The change in the score of a touch
down and a goal to seven points has
not abolished the use of field goals. In
the Yale-Wesleyan game, both teams
scored by a drop kick, and Capt Butler
of Cornell -won his own game by a goal
from placement Carlisle, as usual, ran
up a big score In its opening game.
Therefore no deductions can be made
as regards the rules, but a decided con
clusion can be reached as regards the
indian material, which is of the best
Quality. Capt Thorpe, the greatest all
round athlete in the world, did not play,
neither Hd Powell, another veteran, hut
Welsh, the quarterback, ran his team
in splendid shape, and gives promise of
adding his name to the list of great
The Carlisle team has two new games
on Its schedule this year, one with
West Point on November 9. and another
with Cornell. The team-will be worth
watching, and with Warner as coach,
will make the most out of the new
Big Teams Have Weak Lines.
The provisional 'varsity elevens as
constituted at Harvard, Yale and
Princeton show a decided strength in
the back field and an equally marked
weakness in the line.
Harvard has a pair of remarkable
backs in Wendell and Brlckley, prob
ably the best combination that has
played at Cambridge for a great many
years. Yale has three veterans in
Spalding, Philbln and Camp, all of them
from them, and the world's champion
ship, with all its big returns of money,
glory and honor, gradually ebbing else
where and to other players.
It is little wonder there was dire dis
may in the Giants camp and untold
worry on the mind of their manager,
John J. McGraw. He knew full well
that his team and himself would be the
laughing stock of baseball fandom the
country over should the commanding
lead they once had be overcome and
the team beaten out In the end. But
that unfortunate contingency will not
The Giants, as they seem invariably
fated in hot weather to do, slumped

months. They did so this year by play

exaggerated the heated spells In St

the torrid weather was too much for
them to withstand, and those were the

the most prominent among them Ma
thewson and Meyers have come out
wth their own signed statements that
tbo Giants will win, but it will be be
cause John McGraw knows more base
ball than Jake Stahl. and it is on that
account that I feel free to express my
opinion that the Giants win beat out
the Red Sox.
Individually I do not think the Giants
are In any way superior to the Red
Sox, but when team work is to be con
sidered, and the coming world's series
surely will be diverted from, individual

The Giants can be depended on. and
with Tesreau to offset Wood and Ma

Jeff," things look pretty smooth to

into a great back field. And Princeton
starts the season with Pendleton.
Baker and De Witt the same back field,
that played on the team that beat Har
vard and Yale last year. All three
colleges are particularly weU provided
for in the back field.
In fact this season is apt to be
known as a season of great backs, for
there is Capt Thorpe of Carlisle, Capt
Mercer of Pennsylvania, Capt Wen

Princeton and Capt Spalding of Yale,
without considering- your Brickleys,
Minds, Bakers or Philbln.
The line proposition is entirely dif

with Ketcham, an all-American center,
and Bomelster. an ail-American end.
and the rest of the material is fair out

Both Bomelster and Ketcham are
good players, but there were quite a
