It took Willie McGlll one inning yes
terday to regain the deceptive curves
which he was wont to throw over the
plate, but which have been lying idle
for two or three weeks. That one In
ning was enough to decide the game,
as it turned out. fur the Saints were
unable to get together on the delivery
of Willie Hutchison, who has now
won two games In three days, and will
no doubt be pitched every second day
hereafter by the penurious Minneapolis
Hutch's ball was invariably a little
higiier than it looked to the St. Paul
sluggers, the result being that the ball
almost always went hig-h in the air
only to be pull, il down safely by onv
of the Millers' out or Infielders. Over
half the Saints were put out on these
sky-scraping drives. With one or two
except inns, the Millers gave Hutch ad
mirable support, in which respect they
were mure generous than Willie Mc-
Gril's St. Paul associates.
Mcßride started the flying, his aer
motor being pulled down well out.
Glasscock hit to Float, who let it go
through him as though it were a
Krag-Jorgenson bullet. The next one
was stopped, but Cartwright muffed
the throw, and two were safe on bases.
Glasscock tried to go to third, but was
declared out by Umpire Daly. Nyce
got a base on balls, but Parrott hit to
Cartwright and no one scored.
McGill started like a four-time win
ner, by striking out Letcher, but Mil
ler hit safely. Roat waited for four
balls, and the next three drove liners
thruug-h the infield for a single each.
Throe runs were scored before "Tacks"
Parrott secured two long flies.
Spies was first to hit Hutchison
safely and McGill got a base on balls,
but two of the Apostles were already
out on outfield flies, and Mcßride
forced McGill off. Hutchison waited
for four balls and got them. Letcher
sacrificed. Miller was presented with
a base, Roat dropped a fly and the
Visitors had three men on bases with
only one out. Local stock went down
with a slump, but McGill remained as
placidly cool and collected as a mouse
at a girls' boarding school. Walter
Wilmot came to bat with three on
bases, and the Minneapolis rooters
who came over were actually insolent
in their hopefulness. Knowing full
well that one pair of bright eyes in
that stand would beam on him if he
smote the ball, he posed strikingly be
fore the plate. He poised the willow,
newly scraped half down to the butt,
in his Ire, ami as McGill sent in the
ball cutting corners off the plate
faster than a new servant in a china
cupboard, Walter swung, and swung,
and swung again. The ball eluded
each swing and Walter, crestfallen, re
tiivd to his bench. More troubles he
had to tell policemen then than ever,
and he jabbered around on the bench
until the ice water soured in the barrel
near by. Cartwright, however, still
had a chance to push the Millers to
the front, but he merely poked up a
fly to Nyce and was out.
Neither side reached first base in th<»
Cartwright again muffed a thrown
ball, and, with one out, Shugart went
to first. Spies flew out to Letch ?r,
but Shugart scored on Holly's two
bagger. Holly tried to stretch it into
three, but was declared out by Daly,
much to the disgust of the crowd. That
was St. Paul's first run. Minneapolis
again failed to reach first base, Mc-
Gill was working like a steam drill
BliM.iting straight for the plate every
When he opened the fifth inning hi
drove a hard one down toward left
field, which, at first, looked like an
out, but bounded over Eustace's head.
Mcßride was given four bad ones.
Glasscock hit a hard one which struck
Mcßride. McGill went on to third.
The Minneapolis rowdies tried to brow
beat Daly into sending McGill back,
but he could not hear them. He
seemed to have patent fasteners on his
ears. George hit a sharp one
to Cartwright. Had the latter got
ten it cleanly, he might have cut off
McGlll's run, but, as it was, he had
to hustle to get George out at first.
The Inevitable sky-drive ended the
Inning, Letcher getting all that came
anywhere near him. For a third suc
cessive inning the Millers failed to
reach first base. And, as they were
only one ahead, McGill's stock went
up a little.
Parrott sent Miller a hard one, but
"Doggie" got it. Shugart struck out.
Spies and Hollingsworth cracked out
corking singles, and Willie had a
chance to save his own game, but he
only knocked one to Ball and the side
was out again.
Eustace was given a base. Ball
r>opped one up to Glasscock. Boyie
hit to Nyce, who did not stop it. Shu
g-art got the ball too late. Hutchi
son sent Parrott a fly. Eustace came
in from third base on a passed ball,
which Spies went after too slowly.
Letcher's two-bagger and Miller's sin
gle gave Minneapolis three more runs
in that inning, all they needed.
Glasscock's single, another muff of a
thrown ball, by Cartwright, and
A Handsome Complexion
is one of the greatest charms a woman can
possess. Pozzoni's Complexion Powdkb
Nyce's sharp drive" to Ball gave the lo
cals one more in the seventh. George
took in three flies, Cartwright sand
wiching in a safe hit.
Shugart opened the eighth by getting
a base on balls. Spies sent Ball a
fiy, and Hollingsworth struck out, but
when McGill hit safely again, the
locals had a chance to tie with a homer.
Mcßride was presented with a base
by Hutchison, who was up in the air
as high as a shot tower, and could
not throw even a shadow straight.
Glasscock came next, and the veteran
did just what he was expected to under
the circumstances —hit the ball a ter
rific blow that sent It sailing into right
field close to the foul line. Miller
started after it with the suddenness
of a mercurial fire alarm.
"Will he get it?" one rooter asked
"Like a dog," replied the other.
And he did.
Perhaps that's why they call him
That was the last chance the locals
had to win, and it was spoiled by sen
sational fielding. The Millers did not
get the baH out of the diamond in their
half, but they did not need to. Eus
tace took in two flies in the ninth, ono
of them a foul near the left bleacher,
and the other man went out on a throw
from Roat to Cartwright.

IX THE WESTERN L.EAXJIIE.
Pour Clubs Making a Mighty Fltflit
for (h<- l'ennnt.
It was the general impression among base
bail enthusiasts that while Indiana-polis and I
Columbus were see-sawing St. Paul would I
give Minneapolis a lot of sequential lickings
and jump into the lead. St. Paul, however, is
doing nothing of the kind, but is having the
hardest kind of work to keep a nose in front [
of the despised Millers. At the same time, j
Milwaukee, by winning eleven straight games, !
has pulled right into the thick of the fight, j
being now but two and one-half games be- j
hind St. Paul. That the contest is to be tho j
hottest in the history of the- Western league
is shown by the figures, four clubs coming up
to the Fourth of July almost neck and nerk.
Columbus has the lead, but after today's game
must travel almost steadily for a month, and
will no doubt drop a few pegs. It is a good
guess that by the 20th of July Columbus will
be in fourth place, but, If the Buckeyes play
a strong traveling game and keep their per
centage up In the neighborhood of .fiOO, they
can again take the lead on returning home
Aug. 1. Of the second division crowd Grand
Rapids is playing the best ball. Kansas City
and Detroit have both gone to pieces, and
the changes made at Minneapolis have weak
ened the team materially. The team ought j
not, in fact, to be able to win one game in
ten from St. Paul. The standing of the clubs

Every bit of the luck of the game was
with the Millers.
* ♦ •
Spies' work in the sixth Inning was very
bad. Had he made half a try for that passed
ball he would have had Eustace out by sev
eral feet in the sixth inning, and Minneapolis
would have made no runs Instead of three.
There is occasionally a man who should b*
played on the bench a while without salary
to make him play ball.

was on a grounder, which was hard to han

Only thirteen of the Millers reached first
base, and yet six of them scored. Fourteen
St. Paul men reached the initial bag, but
only three of them got around.

St. Paul had splendid chances to win the
game in the sixth, seventh and eighth inn
ings, but tho long hit that was wanted never
came. With the bases full in the eighth
Cilas.scock hit one to deep right center, but
Miller made a great sprint and caught a
ball which looked good for three bases.
* * *
Pitcher Daniels has deserted the Columbus
club and is now in Louisville. Magnates Lof
tus and Manning should make an example
of the two "jumpers," Daniels and Lake
and prevent them from playing for about two
* • »
It is so hot in Kansas these days that
Manning has decided to send bis patrons home
early enough to cool off before supper. Games
! are to be commenced at 3:30 o'clock. This
, arrangement will permit visiting clubs to get
out of town before dark.

Tom De:,'hanty, fired by Manning because
of his indulgence in the bowl that robs sec
ond basemen of their usefulness, has been
Offered a job at Syracuse. But for his weak
| ness off the diamond Tom would not have to
look for jobs in state leagues. Menefee is
playing second for Kansas City for the pres
ent, but doing it very badly.
* * *
It would be difficult to devise a situation
in which Arlie Latham could be placed
where he would not have a ready answer or
retort. He is playing at Mansfield, 0., since
his brief experience as an umpire, and
when the umpire fined him the other day
for making a disparaging remark, Arlie
cheerfully chirped. "That's all right. I re
ceive no salary here, but am merely the
guest of Mr. Strouthers."
« * *
Daly has made himself solid with the Mil
waukee reporters, and never a day passes in
which they do not tell of his wonderfud
work. They admit that the spectators hiss
his misplays, but declare that the spectators
do not know good second base plays when
they see 'em. Neither do the reporters, for
they don't see 'em. Daly's a poor thrower on
account of a dinky arm, and makes as
many errors as anybody. Like Ilunky Hines,
he plays the position as well as he can under
his handicap, and Is entitled to credit for
his efforts; but not to fulsome praise.
IS DEXHEU COMING HERE?
Chleagro Story Say* nngrr Will
Finish ViiiT Here.
A dispatch to the Globe from Chicago
states that Roger Denzer has been granted a
leave of absence to visit his old home in
Le Sueur, and that while President Hart
says Denzer will soon rejoin the team, De.nz.er
told a number of people in the Windy City
that he was to be with St. Paul the rest of
the season, and that all that remained to be
settled was a settlement of delails between
Managers Comiskry and Hart. President Hart
denies the story. It is probably safe to ven
ture the prediction that if Denzer does coma
back into the Western league, it will not be
to the St. Paul team.

LONDON, JUDy 3.-»-The most remark
able assemblage of men that England
has ever seen will be on view at the
royal hospital, Chelsea, July 5. On
this date the Queen and the Prince
and the Princess of. Wales will inspect
a body of men who, as individuals,
have fought in some one of every battle
of consequence, fought since Victoria
ascended the throne. They will form
a human story of British conquest of
sixty years. Never in the history of
any country wits there a gathering of

patronage of the Prince of Wales. It
is on this occasion that the review of
the pensioners and veterans will take
place. When one considers what a
tremendous record of warfare these
men will represent, it seems almost be
yond belief. The whole affair is under
the charge of Col. Hugh Gildea, who 18
chairman and treasurer of the Soldiers'
and Sailors' Family association.
When the work of arranging for the
meeting of these K'eterans was begun,
the very greatest difficulty was found
in tracing the survivors of the early
campaigns of the reign. The searchers
finally turned to the pension list, how
ever, which proved of great assistance
to them. It is now an assured fact
that there will be in the ranks on July
5, men who fought in every general
action under the British flag since 1837.
A sketch of the lives of these old
warriors would almost be an epitome

Erlorious reign in the annals of Eng
land. Ghuzni, Maharajpore, Aliwal,

Mutiny, the two China wars, the Maori
war, the various South African cam
paigns, the rebellion in Canada, Afg
hanistan, Ashantee, and the Indian
frontier campaigns,, all will be repre
sented. Some of the old heroes have
passed by two decades, the alloted
span of human life, but they are now
nearly as full of ardor as they were

three years later, he was wounded

Not many of the first Maori war are
available, but tho campaigns in South

are fairly numerous. Strange as it
may seem, not a single representative

other holder of the most coveted decor

In which old soldiers and sailors are
locked after to have to state that many
of the applications which reach Col.
Gildea are indited from workhouses or
other homes of poverty and helpless
ness. One of these veterans has had
no less than thirty-five years' service
in the regulars, militia and volunteers,
and yet is not entitled to a pension,
and, of course, receives none. In all,
about 300 old soldiers, together with the
Chelsea pensioners, will be inspected
by the Prince of Wales. It is hopad

the occasion, and there will, of course,
be plenty of military music. After the
inspection the Princess of Wales will
receive purses containing donations In
aid of the Nurses' homes, and then the
veterans and the Chelsea pensioners
will sit down to an evening meal in
the great hall of the hospital.
It is proposed to give each veteran
a jubilee pipe and a present of tobacco.
The pipes are being made to a special
design, and will form a handsome and
interesting souvenir for the old men.
Many of the men who will be present
on this occasion, or at least a very
good percentage of them, distinctly
remember the day when the queen was
crowned, and they have grown old
with her. It is a most touching com
mentary upon the position held by the
queen that even the most poverty
stricken of these old veterans, even
those to whom after years of glorious
service the necessaries of life are prac
tically denied, are among her majesty's
most loyal subjects. They seem to re
gard the queen with an affection that
is as pitiful as it is disinterested.

How Old Roan Escaped From Hlm
It seems to me that there is no need any
longer to doubt the rational quality of many
of the actions of our four-footed frle;ids.
Old Roan was a cavalry horse marked L C.
(Inspected and condemned), says Forest and
Stream. My father (a preacher, by the way,
and as Ueen a hunter as ever tratled a deer
or fooled a turkey) bought him at a govern
ment auction for $12. When plenty of corn
ond oats and good treatment had counter
acted the effects of hard cavalry service, ten
times that price would not have bought
him. He was a capital tnveler and a good
farm horse. But his intelligence in open
ing gates -was extraordinary. He learned the
trick of lifting a latch as soon as the new
barn was built. Then we put a ring over
the top of tho post. He soon got on to this,
and flipped It off with his upper lip. A chain,
with the links keyed together, he could man
age very well, also a rope, if he could get
at the knot with his teeth.
His stall was closed by sliding bars. These

them and put in pins to keep them from

Special Correspondence of the Globe.
NEW YORK, July I.—Record break
ing has been a rather frequent occur
rence in the National league recently.
There were three such events within
one week. First the New Yorkers
shut out the Clevelands on two suc
cessive days. Then they beat the
Baltimore? on the latter's grounds
twice in one day. Finally, the Bostons
made their victorious run of successive
victories seventeen. Each of these
feats created considerable comment
wherever base ball is talked about.
The failure of the Cleveland team to
get a run against the Giants in eight
een successive innings is something
which I believe has not occurred to
any other club in the National league
for years. Rusie shut out the Chica
gos in 1895 twice in one series, but a
game intervened between the two run
less games. To Meekin and younj,
Seymour belongs the crod'it of the dou
ble whitewash of Tebeau's m?n. The
latter pitcher, by the way, is attracting
a great deal of attention and seems
to be the coming left hander. Anson
has so tabbed him, and when Anson
grants supreme praise to any player
not on his own staff his words are
based upon a veteran's strong convic
tions. Seymour is not twenty years
old, but is six feet tall and has mus
cles of iron knit. His former weak
ness was lack of control and whai
is called an inclination to go "up in
the air." Good coaching has rid him ot"
both faults to a large degree, and he
is improving rapidly in both respects.
His speed is something marvelous.
On this point all batsmen who face
The double defeat of the Baltimoros
by the New Yorks at Baltimore ou
June 21 aroused enthusiasts in all parts
of the country and at once put an ex
tra phase to the championship rae?.
Here is a team which is all but invinc
ible on its own grounds, which had
won thirty-three games and lost but
ten during the season, succumbing
twice in one afternoon to a visiting ri
val in the presence of 6,000 supporters.
It was something which had not hap
pened to the Baltimores since the city
has had a championship team.
To the great pitching of Rusie and
Meekin was due much of the honor
thus won by the New York team. The
grand work of these two men in the
latter part of 1894 has not been forgot
ten, but was brought forward and
talked over by reason of the Baltimore
double achievement. It served notice
on the public that, barring accident,
these two notable pitchers are goiny
to duplicate their deeds of three sea
sons ago. Then they had practically
no assistance, and they pulled thei"
team up from ninth position on June
20 to second position when the race
ended. This time the team is in fourth
place, and they have the aid of Sey
mour, Sullivan and Clarke.
Such are the circumstances which
put a new phase to the championship
races within one week's time and set
critics, as well as close students of
"form," to asking the question, Why
are not the New Yorks a dangerous
factor to other aspirants for pennant
honors? The playing of the Giants
improved so materially with the im
proved work of the pitchers that th^
query was but natural. Whatever
superiority the New Yorks may have
lies in their pitching department, and.
after all. that is the surest element
of strength in the game. Any club
whose pitchers can, day after day,
hold opponents down to from two to
five runs, needs not much of a bat
ting team to manufacture the other
part of the victory. But the New
Yorks this year are very strong as
batsmen. If Rusie, Meekin and Sey
mour continue in their June form, and
no serious accident happens to the
rest of the nine, the New Yorks may
be safely set down as one of the
teams which will be contending for
pennant honors when the home stretch
is reached in September.
The Bostons' feat of winning seven
teen successive games I bel'eve is the
National league record in that respect.
It certainly is the record for the la?t
seven years. The Philadelphias, under
Harry Wright's management, boasted
of "sixteen straight," but that honor
was taken from them by the Bostons
at Brooklyn on June 21, when by the
Baltimore's double defeat on the same
day Selee's men took first place for
a day, only to lose it twenty-four
The situation when the two loaders
met in Boston for their first series,
June 24, 25 and 26, has seldom been
duplicated in a base ball champion
ship. With the two leaders as neatly
a tie as was possible, those three
games took on an interest which is
almost unprecedented. There was
scarcely a hamlet or village in the.
union where pome interested persons
did not anxiously await news from
each of those games. It was a time
when ball players' nerves were put
to the full test, when courage and
faith were half the battle. And the
end is not yet. True, this series pave
one club a slight advantage, but when
the lons season ahead is considered it
becomes plain that only the skirmish
ins has been done. The real fighting
is to ciime. Tt may result like some
horse races, where the two favorites*
kill themselves off by running a de
stroying neck and neck race in front
and then let a second or third choice
come up and win at the end. It be
gins to look like a narrowing down to
four clubs, with but small chances for
the Cinclnnatis on account of their
long series of games on the road at

are not making a professional impres
sion on this continent, but they cer
tainly have no reason to complain of
American hospitality. Although they
have made a woeful failure In their
exhibition of playing, they have l>een
most royally entertained everywhere,
especially in Chicago and the East.
The chief feature of their visit will
be the game which they played in
Boston June 21, against a picked nine
ot old time American stars, among
whom were A. G. Spalding, T. H. Mur

easily excel the rusty efforts of the
