Waddell in Fresh Trouble.
Pea body. Mass., Feb. 11. Rube
Waddell, the erratic pitcher of the
Philidelphia Athletics, is among the
mi.-ising. The police want him to an
swor for an assault committed on Mr.
and Mrs. Edward R(ss, his wife's par
ents. Rube has been living with the
Ross family since December. The oth
er day. it is stated, the big pitcher
started to drink. When he got home
in thf evening he packed his trunk
and announced that he was going to
leave. Mr. Ross reminded him of the
fact that his board bill remained un
paid, and this angered Rube. He as
saulted Ross, damaging his face and
loosening a number of teth. When
Mrs. Ross interfered Rube is said to
have knocked her down. A Newfound
land dog belonging to Mrs. Ross took
a hand at this stage of the proceedings
and badly chewed Rube's famous left
ami. Rube left the house in a hurry
and disappeared. It is believed he has
gone to Philadelphia .
