a child he was an invalid and was
sent from the city into the fields,
to the health and strength
which nature had denied him.
His quest was succesful, and
today he Is a big, strapping fel
low, clean-limbed as a greyhound
and as tough as rawhide. Life in
the open, athletics and clean
living barked by determination,
accomplished the miracle.
Richards ia a Brlgham Young
university student. He first com

and his best jump was 5 feet 7

CHICAGO, July 17. — Every

SAN FRANCISCO, July
17.Death may soon end
the ring career of AI Kauf
man, California heavyweight
.and at one time regarded as
the coming heavyweight
champion of the world. This
fact was announced yesterday
from i the bedside, where
Kaufman lies stricken with
pneumonia.' His temperature
is at 104, but It will be sev
eral days before the crisis in
his Illness is reached.
McMulUn la holding up ■ hla
reputation for a pinch hitter and
yesterday figured in a double play
from the shortstop position, got
a home run and a two-bagger out
of four hits with five times at
bat. Pretty .good for one day.
They should leave Morse on the
bench Indefinitely if McMulMn
keeps up that strain.
"Take It from me," says Geo.
Shreeder, and he KNOWS, "when
ever they come back from the big
league there Is something wrong
with them. And usually it's
booze. The souse will show up
better than the youngster In
spring training because he's had
a month's good feeding at your
expense and plenty of hard work.
But wait a month until the booze
commences to boil out."
Ben Hunt, now pitching, pitch
ed a few games for Tacoma sev
eral years ago and beat It quick
after his first pay day. Shreeder
was out considerable for car fare
and Hunt was happy.
It Is peculiar that only the
Tigers were able to steal bases
yesterday. Getting away from
the Initial and safe at sec«nd Is
one of the big things In baseball
and Mill, Jensen. LaLonge and
even "Farmer" Hunt stole bases.
Moran of Seattle got his only
bit yesterday when he poled a
home run. Some people I are
born lucky. Moran Is usually a
poor stick artist.
Holder-man, the new first sack
