SOME BASE BALL HISTORY.
Time Haa Bade Easy Rerelatlona la
he Katloaal Vane .ote or the
A, a I jiBb a L.eane.
Time has made several rerolutioDs in
base ball matters since toss-up-and catch
ana one-old-cat was the entrancing sport
of the gamins of long ago. One-old cat
was far from being a national sport; it
was guiltless of an umpire; knew noth
ing of captains and nines and leagues and
rules and uniforms.
Indeed, the only uniforms known were
generally a pair of pants of the never rip
Kind, a shirt and a solitary suspender.
Perhaps it wou'd have gone on that
way forever had not the newspapers com
menced to make or the amateur perform
ance an item of news.
It was this public notice, as an ex
change rightly observes, that introduced
feature by feature all that goes to make
up base ball. One -old-cat developed
into a diamond field with players in
proper position for batting and hand'
ling balls. Thee csme rules of game,
uniforms , umpires, captains, etc, man
agers' salaries, catchers', pitchers', muffs
and masks. A Case ball inclosure
with an entrance fee and many other
things too numerous to mention. It
was the newspapers of the land that
made it possible for base ball to
grow and expand into a national sport
Men at the head of base ball teams rea
lized this, and when the first base ball re'
porter crept into the arena he was treated
to champagne suppers, coupe rides, the
atre tickets, a cushioned seat in the grand
stand and all that. But bye-and-bye
other reporters came; they toadied to the
magnates. The magnates became cold
and distant and the once feasted reporter
could now eat a railroad sandwich at a
cheap restaurant, and find a seat when
the game began in the meek if noi lowly,
reporters' gallery. It was he, and such
as be that bad made the game, but that
cut no figure with tee magnates, and they
reasoned well. They were, it is true, no
longer masters of the situation. They
had made base ball and the money kings
of the diamond, but it cut no figure.
They were at the mercy of the idol they
had unveiled, and if they now kicked
against the pricks, it was hidden behind
the honeyed mask of a smil
It is the same everywhere. Sit
in the pie gallery or write the game
standing up; go without a cushion or pay
for it; if you want a score card take off
your hat and ask the money-changer at
the gate for it.

There is a possibility that Trost will
