THE SPORTING WORLD.
Thomas Flunaguu, nu 18-y car-old
Irish lud oi Now Yurie, bids fair to be?
come tho athletic marvel of tho deoudo.
Hb is a brother of John Flanagan, tho
champion hammer thrower, who taught
him to handle tho implement with good
results. Tins is shown by the recent re?
markable work of tho youngster, lie
sent the missile through tho air for u
distance of 108 feet uud 4 inches, which
is only 10 inches short of tho world's
record made by W. L. Condon.
Young Flanagan is of line physique,
and unusually largo for his ago. With
several years of development it is pre?
dicted by knowing ones that ho will
improve right ?long on his present form
and that the record of his brother John
and those of such stalwarts as Edgren
and Mitchell will bo eclipsed.
Young Flanagan does not confine bis
efforts to throwing tho bummer, but
runs und jumps with such ability as to
make him formidabio in nu all around
competition. He has already entered
into negotiations for n mutch with T.
F. Kioly of Carrick-ou-Suir, who is tho
amateur all around champion of Ireland
and acknowledged tho peer of any man
in the world.
Tho Flanagan Iiovb nro chips of the
old block. Their father, Michael, held
tho Irish records for putting tho f>(?
pound shot und three standing jumps
when ho wns in bis prime. Tho younger
Flanagan intends to enter ono of the
leading colleges next fall.?New York
A Wonderful Pucinar Mare.
In her exhibition Marion Mills, the
romurkable pacing mare, wears nothing
but a surcingle, bridle, overdraw und
sido cheeks. She is directed iu her per?
formance by tho starter's bell. She
starts, stops and increases her speed ac?
cording to tho strokes. Sho goes up to
the starting point and scores to thowire
just as if she wero driven.
If tho starter considers her a little
off, ho will ring tho call back, and on
tho instant sho will whirl and try it
again. Tho moment tho word "go" is
given she shoots away liko a rocket, and
when tho mile is finished she will come
buck to tho judges' stand, look up as if
to nsk if everything is ?. K. and then
face the stand as if in appreciation of
Sho is trained for her work just r.a
other horses are trained to trot and
pace. Her handler hitches her in a sul?
ky and jogs and speeds her just its otbi r
grout raeers uro handled. In a sulky
Marion is a very bad mare to score in n
field of horses, and it was while teach?
ing her to overcome the bad habit oi
spoiling good starts that ti. W. Atlii r
ton discovered her almost human intt 1
ligence. She knew the meaning of the
cull back boll long before her owner
took notico of it, and her driver often
noticed her ability to feel out a rival
racer and gauge her speed accordingly
Her proprietor expects her to go close
to tho pacing record before tho season
comes to an end.?Denver Times.
Cricketer Kinfr's Curves.
.7. B. King of the American cricket
team, wiio bowled with such success
during tho recent contests with the
British, has revolutionize d that depart?
ment of tho ganio in England, or at
least started a movement which will
eventually causo a great clinngo in the
professional bowling then'. He bus
mastered tho curve so commonly used
by baseball pitchers, but almost un?
known in cricket. In fact, tho players in
England have claimed that it was im?
possible to get on any curve if the ball
is howled and not thrown. Tho fairness
of King's delivery is unquestioned,
however. Several New York cricketers
can curve the ball, but only coming in
from leg, and usually bowling "round
the wicket." King says that this curve
is of little nso. It is tho ball that curves
in from tho off that proves effective,
and when tho ball curves that way and
breaks at the same time it is almost im?
possible to piny it, as Kanjit.-inhji, the
prince of batsmen, found to his cost in
tho match at Brighton.?New York
Woes of a Now Pitcher.
Tho tricks a new pitcher has to en?
counter in tho big League uro trying.
As a rule the young man is nervous
and seared to death. Tho conchers en
courage him to complete breakdown by
the cheeriest kind of wnrwhoops nnd
the most playful badinage, tho crowd
says numerous things, and each old
player as he comes to tho but thinks up
some device to frighten tho boy. Arlio
Latham was about the worst of all when
it came to scaring a new pitcher. Arlio
would stand hi tho attitude of n monkey
begging peanuts, wave bis bat, dance
up and down and make funny speeches.
The pitcher, worried, perplexed, un?
certain as to what would como next,
would send a ball over at a slow und
halting puce. With a joyous shriek
Arlie would swat it. If it. went sale, u
was all off with that pitcher, for tho
next biitsmnn would kill it, and so on
until ho was driven from tho box. If it
was caught, the youngster would prob
ably settle down and win.?Boston
Old, but a Scorcher.
Spencer F. Cone of Fostoria, O., al?
though 03 years of age. is still quite
strong and vigorous and gives promise
of reaching the century mark. He says
bo is now living bis second boyhood,
