GAMES SCHEDULED FOR TODAY.
Kansas City at St. Paul.

Indianapolis at Detroit.
Oh, the mild exhilaration, when tha
home team is ahead!
And the subsequent vexation, when the
rivals win instead.
Count not with living horrors, rending
every human heart.
When your idols fall like dummies, aft«r
getting a fine start.
When the narrative of the Kansas City
team's exploits shall have been written,
there is one thing that will nor be said,
and that is that they were of that short
winded, asthmatic variety of ever-trained
horse flesh known to the technical pat
rons of the turf as quarter-horses. When
ic comes to batting out a victory in the
ninth, the blue Jacketed rough riders from
the muddy bottoms of Kansas City have
.it systematized to an immortal cinch,
and they are reasonably expert in tenth
inning finishes, although th.iy haven't had
a great deal of practice there. Manning's
coterie of stranjje faces seems to mantle
considerable base ball talent in the line
of slugging the ball, which usually lies
dormant until Just about the time the
average fan thinks he'll f.aunter home
and have a little something to eat. He
gets about half way to the outside gate,
when suddenly behind him he hears an
exultant shout from the enemy's bench,
sees a crazy chap in a blue suit toss his
cap over an electric light wire, and in a
minute the ball is chasing back and forth
over the diamond like a flying scwadron
in search of the Spanish navy, which it
cannot find. If he is a real fan and game
he comes back and takes his medicine.
If he just went out to see the home team
win, he meanders along home and gets
his supper, for he is all through on the
other end of his expectations when Roth
fuss, or Turner, or Ganzel, or any of the
rest of those Kaw valley single stickers
proced to go out after the horse hide in
the last inning. From somnolent, lacka
daisical, salary-serving spectators, these
automata suddenly are transformed into
living, breathing, batting entitles, and
then, in the classic language of Matty
McVlcker, their right fielder:
"The stuff's off."
It was off Friday.
It was also off yesterday.
Friday it was Denser. Yesterday It was
Fisher. It might as well have been the
personification of all the consummate
genius that ever faced a batter's box,
because when that Mlsosuri aggregation
gets started, the bell wether has to have
a motorcycle to keep out of the way of
the swiftly following herd. Over the
fence. Over anything. They 11 bat the
ball so hard that the cement on the In
side seeps out through the seams and
burns the hands of the fielders after it
has been slacked on the wet grounds of
the outfield. If the Kaw team had a yell
it would probably be:
"Kansas City. Ain't we pretty? S. li.
U. G. Slug."
Till the end of the eighth inning Chaun
cey Fisher had the Kaws under his thumb
like a jack-in-the-box.
Then they got out of the box, and when
it came to rounding: them up again he
was busier than a little dog in high oats.
He really could not get them settled down
again. If they don't settle at their hotels
any better than they do in the ninth in
ning, they are poor patrons. But they
must settle, sometimes.
Oh, it was pitiful. 'Fore a whole clty
ful, Fisher was slaughtered. And he
wanted to-pitch the game, too. Had so
much fun with 'em Thursday, you know,
couldn't resist the temptation to go in
and mix it up with Manning's plainsmen
again. He came out of it looking a good
deal like the Poll parrot that said "sic
em" to an ennuied dog. The Kaws
couldn't find any one but Fisher to "sic."
Chauncy started out like a four-time
winner. He mowed down Viox and Turn
er on strike-outs till Manning sent a sur
veyor out to see if the pitcher's box had
not been smuggled up closer to the plate.
But then the Rothfuss came to bat. He
seems to be coming to bat always when
the Kaws feel particularly blue. Ar.Vl
after he has been batting a little while
the outfield is as full of dents as a bit of
bark from San Juan hill. Rothfues does
not care much for the infield. He would
lots rather bat to the outfield. He batted
to the most remote corner of the left
field in the first Inning yesterday that
Dan Lally had up to that time explored.
He went in from third base on Ganzel'g
quickly following single, a hot grounder
over short. Hoffmaster, too, trimmed
Chauncey's lamps, cutting a little of the
burnt wick off with a sharp even one over
second. Lally however, caught McVtck
er's high drive, and the suspense was at
But the locals took on a new color of
roseate hope when Meredith presented
Eddie Burke a fine new base, and Eddi*
discarded it at once and stole another.
Geier hit to Raymer, and Eddie went
down to third where he was able to
score on Glenalvin's high fly to Roth
full. Before Isbell gave Raymer a fly.
That made the score a tie, 1 to 1.
Raymer struck out, and Wilson flew to
Burke. Meredith gave Geier a high drop
and the locals had a shade the best of It
on form. Turner, however, ate up Lally's
drive, and Viox threw Shugart out. Oan
zel made a lucky stop of Preston's hard
liner, but it counted just as much as
though he had run for it.
Viox batted one down to Shugart, who
felt for It, but missed it «ntil it bounded
on the soft earth and, bounding, bruised
his bosom with its rough caress. Tumor
poked a light one at Glenalvin, and Viox
cleverly beat a double play by dropping
in his tracks as Glen reached for him
with the ball Rothfuss struck out
would that it had been oftener. Ganzel
met the ball full in the waist and it sailed
and sailed far into left field. Viox was
hurrying around the sacks at a great
rate. It looked like a sure run. but, no!
Lally got under the ball and the inning
Viox threw Spies out and Fisher popped
a foul to Wilson. Hcffmaster lost his
reckoning when Burke shot him a light
one, and Eddie stole second again with
an ease that caused a cold shiver to roll
down the spinal column of the Western
Wilson. Geier, however, rolled an easy
grounder up to Viox, and the socre wan
still a tie.
Hoffman gave Geler a high foul, and
McVicker was thrown out by "our
Chauncey." Raymer reached first on a
fly that dropped safe between Lally and
Burke, but Wilson was thrown out by
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, SUNDAY, MAY 7, 1899.
Spies, who picked up the ball almost on
Glenalvin hit a high foul which Wilson
took on a fine run from the stand to the
base line. Isbell hammered a line drive
over first base, but was forced out by
Lally, who barely beat a double play.
Dan stole Becond, Shugart batted a gentle
one to Viox and again St. Paul was
Meredith struck out, and Viox and
Turner went on flies to Burke and Shu
gart, Viox threw Preston out, and Turner
took flies from the next two so honors
for the fifth Inning were easy.
Rothfuss, Ganzel and Hoffmaster sent
grounders to Shugart, which were fleUl
e<l with accuracy and promptness, and
then the locals began to plant Merideth
under the daisies. Burke drove the ball
out over short for nice single. Then,
with his usual criminal tendency, tie
stole second. Geier struck out, but Glen
alvin batted a sharp one at .Raymer.
The Atchieon boy had to Juggle it a few
seconds or so and then he gave Ganzel
a very low throw, the result being that
Burke had reached third and Glen first
in safety. labell hit a pop-up a little back
of the infield. Viox thought it was easy,
and muffed it. That tied Glen and Isbell
both up at first base, but while Viox was
ihrowing to second for Glen, Burke went
home with the run. Then came Lally.
Poising himself evenly about four and a
half inches abaft the base, he swung his
ironwood club full on the front of Meri
deth's first shoot. The ball had a rising
inflection imparted to it. It kept going
up, up, up. Turner, helpless as a pigmy
far below, shot one despairing glance at
the rising ball, and then, turning, started
on a dead run for the fence. The ball did
n6t go to the cycle path, because at the
point where It tried to climb into the
cycle path, the engineering department
of Proprietor Smith's army of industry
had erected an embankment up which
the ball started with Turner after it.
But by this time Lally had crossed the
plate, and Turner's pursuit was entirely
a labor of love. The first home run of
the season on the grounds was tally's.
And then Shugart was thrown out by
In the seventh the Kaws failed to get
the ball out of the Infield, and first base
to them was like the sealed book the
newsboy tries to sell the rustic on the
train. The locals began to prance around
like corn-fed colts. Preston straightened
one of Merideth's left-wing trajectories
out for a line drive over fist base and
went dashing down to first base like an
owl car on its way to the barn. Then he
stole second with charming insouciance.
Spies reached for the sphere With his
trusty stick and high in the air it went.
Rothfuss started for it, and started well,
but not that one. No cruel fate had de
creed that that proud drive should sup
pliant plead for mercy ret the hands of a
strolling blue jacket. Eluding him, it
tore a furrow in the field, while Preston
went down to third. ThenFlsher hit to
Hoffmaster. Preston started from third
for the plate. Hoffmaster feinted. Pres
ton nearly fainted. He fell back to third.
Hoffmaster threw to first, and Fisher
was out. Preston started for home again.
Spies having left second. Ganzel shot
the ball down to Viox, Spies changed his
mind about coming back to second then,
and Preston continued !n a mad race for
home. Viox sent the ball on a line for
Wilson and Preston was nipped at the
plate. With two on bases and none out,
a plain, simple little infield grounder had
cut the team's prospects down to one on
bases and two out, and Burke hit to Hoff
master again, the third baseman this time
reaching for Heine as the latter came
down the line for third.
Shugart threw Merideth's grounder
over to first, and Fisher himßelf handled
all the balls that Viox batted forwards.
Turner flew out to Burke. Geier was
thrown out by Raymer, arid Glenalvin
fouled to Wilson. Isbell sent McVicker a
fly, and again honors were easy. Kansas
City had one more chance to make up a
lead of three runs.
FIREWORKS LET LOOSE.
Then it was that Manning's Imps un
corked their stock of daylight fireworks.
A loafing pitcher was seen to carry an
empty bat bag to the players' bench. In
it was nothing but troubles for Comiskey.
It was not as empty as It looked. Roth
fuss, dreaded wielder of the wondrous wil
low, went out on a paltry grounder to
Shugart, and the locals were already
counting the telegraph poles on their way
home. But Ganzel hit safely well into
left of center field. And then Hoffmaster
landed on that ball for a long one al-'
most straight down the foul line, but a
little inside. Lally made a good guess on
the general direction of the ball, and, run
ning back toward the mountainous border
of the cycle path, finally got the ball in
both hands and dropped It. Ganzel scored
and Hoffmaster went to third. McVicker
drove one out into Burkes bailiwick, and
Raymer hit safely with a short one which
fell in front of Lally, and, as he reached
for it, bounded between his legs, giving
him another good chase. That tied the
score. And who was at bat but Old Bill
Wilson? If there is one town more than
another where it does delight the soul of
the one-time Minneapolis favorite to
smash the cover off the ball It is here.
And Bill's heart was glad yesterday as
he saw that horsehide shave the head
of Shugart and drive Raymer across the
plate with the run that promised to win
Merldeth flew out to Burke and Viox to
Geier, but the visitors were on ahead and
the locals had to fish or cut bait, in the
dainty metaphor of the purling brook.
Lally wanted to pay up for that muff in
the outfield, but the best he could do was
a meek little drive to Hoffmaster, who
tossed the ball across to Ganzel far
ahead of schedule. Shugart aimed at the
ball with a good eye, however, and when
Turner had gotten through fleldlng*the
ball in Shugart was at third base. Pres
ton hit a fly to McVicker, but it was a
short one, and by the time Shugart had
retraced his steps to the sack and started
new for the plate the race between the
man and the ball was close. Shugart,
however, made a good slide and Wilson
did not reach him with the ball. It waa
again a tie. What mattered it if Viox did
throw Spies out?
But Turner met Fisher's wearied arm
with a fine three-base drive down the
right foul line. And Rothfuss followed it
with one just as good right over the mid
dle of the diamond. Then Qanzel fol
lowed with a single, a liner that Burke
had a good time stopping, and two runs
was the least that would do the Apostles
any good in their half of the tenth. Hoff
master went out, G#ier to Isb 11, and Gan
zel was caught between second and third
on McVicker's grounder. Raymer rapped
an easy one to Isbell, and two was abso
lutely essential to the maintenance of a
proper pride in St. Paul.
Schwartz was sent up to bat In Fisher's
place and hammered a lively one at Hoff
master, who toyed with It an Instant and
then threw It. Schwartz's cake lookad
as though It must be at least 99 per cent
dough, but whither away, there? Hoff
master threw the ball, not at first base,
but at the windmill over In the adjacent
lot, and when Schwartz stopped at sec
ond base the ball had only recently been
restored to play. There was a start and
the gasping locals could breathe again.
Burke flew to center, Geler had a chance
to save the day, but gave Wilson a high
foul. Then It was Glenalvln's turn. A
pretty Bingle over second did the business
and he went to second on the vain throw
to the plate for Schwartz. There was one
more chance—lsbell. Merideth curled up
that limber sweep of his and literally
lobbed the ball across the plate, a shade
better than waist high. Isbeil clapped his
bat In front of It, but a Corliss engine
could not have driven the thing more
than 127 feet and 6 Inches, and It rolled
harmlessly down to Raymer, who ended
the game with a clean throw to Ganzel,
St. Paul one run behind. Score:

Willie Bill Hutchison won hiß third suc
cessive victory of-Jihe season for Minne
apolis yesterday afternoon, at Nicollet
park against the "hard hitting Brewers, by
a score of 7 to 4.': Willie Bill was in per
fect form, and Bave for the sixth inning
when a base on balls, two singles and
two doubles netted the visitors four runs,
the latter were simply unable to hit the
old man when hits would do any good.
The whole team was on its mettle and
played like veterans. They hit the ball
with commendable frequency and played
an errorless game in the field. In addl
tion they purloined six bases, and played
the game in general with an evidence of
life that was good to see. Lefty Davte
played his first game of the season, and
played in his old time form. Davis stole
three bases and gathered in a couplo of
hard flies in center.field.
Fisher started i^ to catch for the locals,
but found his arm in bad shape and asked

HEALTHFULNESS OF CYCLING.
Few people in this country know the
history of the bicycle, or who first intro
duced that now universally popular ve
hicle into this country. Space will not
permit a complete description of the ev
olution of the new speedy, perfectly con
structed and handsome "SaCety," from
the crude affair on which English gen
tlemen were accustomed a quarter of a
century ago to besport themselves. Pres
ent-day cyclists owe a debt of gratitude
to F. M. Smith & Bro., 321, 323 and 325
Wabasha street, St. Paul, Minn., to whose
untiring energy, pluck and large outlay
of money the American people now en
joy the most pleasurable, health-giving
means of locomotion the ingenuity of man
ever devised in their celebrated "Gopher"
Bicycles, and today we have in this bicy
cle, as in the day it was lirst put on the
market, a machine lhat Is the acme of
beauty and perfection.
The "Gopher' wheel has ever stood up
to the head of': the list. It has today
many rivals, but none that can rob It
of its well earned honors, or detract from
its long established popularity. Other
machines may possess many features
which commend them to the public, and
many bicycles are deserving of the high
est praise, and are probably worth all
that Is asked for them, but the Emperor
of them all, and the best known and the
most popular is the "Gopher." This bi
cycle was one of the first in the field,
and always the firs.t to embody the latest
improvements. It is constructed of the
very finest materials and is made by the
most skillful workers. It has an eccentric
rear fork and chain adjuster, which will
adjust the chain and line up the rear
wheel instantly, besides no wrench or
screwdriver is necessary, as a single turn
Of one's fingers does the entire business.
It is constructed with a patent lock nut,
bo that a felt washer may be inserted In
the groove, which prevents any dust frowi
getting into the bearings. The sprocket
is so accurately milled that the chain pos
itively does not touch the face of the
teeth until after entering, consequently
there is no loss of power from the chain
sliding down the teeth of the sprocket.
The crowns of the forks are hollowed
out, which makes them much lighter and
at the same time stronger than the old
style of crowns. A steel lug passing
through the nrown into the stem, for a
distance of more than an incn, will cause
the forks to be the last part of the wheel
to break or give out. The manufacturers
of the "Gopher"' bicycle oruarantee their
wheels from all imperfection or defect In
material and poor construction for a
■whole season, while the other makers of
wheels usually guarantee only fiom thirty
to sixty days.
In our opinion the "Gopher" wheel holds
the lead agalnst.all other competitors. It
speaks for itself., as|it has a record sec
ond to none. It has more than held Us
own against violent competitors, find to
day Its popularity ip,ever Increasing. We
do not natter; truth needs no flattery.
Facts are stubborn things, and those who
will take the trouble to carefully Investi
gate the mater will.-not be lon& in find
ing out what we have said Is an unde
niable fact. We do ,not wish In any wise
to detract from jthg, good opinion our read
ers may have concerning other bicycles,
our only objeqt, Is to give due credit
where the facts.will bear out all we have
The "Gop'her'njl^, not a low priced ma
chine. In every, Hjjif of production there
are always poor, medium and line grades.
The finest grades command the
highest price. If the dealer tells you
that another iria'clflne is just as good as
the "Gopher," although it sells for less
money, satisfy yourself first concerning
their past record; and second, what is the
consensus of opinion of professional and
expert riders throughout the country. Of
one thing be assured, and tlrat is that you
are not paying a high price considering
the Intrinsic value and merits of this ma
We take great pleasure in being able

Wllmot and Werden led the team In
batting yesterday. WJlmot was at bat
five times, made three hits, including a
pretty home run in the first inning, stole
two bases, and gathered in three long

times, just as many hits as the home

the field, Waldron and Weaver distin
guishing themselves by capturing hard
line drives which looked safe for two
