Both are now tied for the lead, with New London Team No. 1 having the same percentage, but the New Londoners have rolled three more Karnes than the other two teams, so that the loser tonight will be sure to drop behind New London. Whichever wins, two out of three will remain tied with New London. The hour for the match will be as usual at 6.30, to allow the AVesterly men to catch their trolley back. For the first twelve games rolled In the league, which do not include the games rolled this week. Captain Dalton of New London Team No. 2 has figured out the totals and averages of the six teams, which were published in a New London paper. Records of the teams kept by The Bulletin agree in general with Dalton's except that Stone of Norwich No. 1 should have a total of 474 instead of 729 and McClafferty of the same team should' have a total of 9X7 instead of (32, as given these two players by Dalton. Their averages are affected correspondingly. rJliven of Westerly No. 1 and Captain Harris of Norwich .'o. 2 hold the two high individual averages, with Bliven a. fraction the better. 95 1-2 to 95 1-3. On team average. Norwich No. 2 leads with a mark of 454 1-2, followed by the others in this order: Westerly No 1, 451 2-3; Now London No. 2, 441 1-8; Westerly No. 2, 4:!8 3-4; New London No. 1, 434 1-3; Norwich No. 1, 439 3-4.

Otis Clymer of the Washington club says: "I suppose if I had been a regu lar sceond bp.seman and Jn first-class condition whjn we played that last se ries with Cleveland, the Naps might have won the pennant. You know Joe put me on second base at the start of each game. Each inning when we would come in from the bench. Joe tVould give me a glare and yell "Well, you haven't blown up yet, so you can trv it one more inni'ig.' But about the sixth or seventh inning each game he took me out, saying: "I'm not going to take any more chances on you. Yon are liable to chuck this game any time.' "But in the fifth inning of the sec ond game, with .Chech and Withemp pitching, neither of us had made a run. Birmingham came un lor Cleveland. He singled to center and Perring past ed one to short left for a base. Chech tried to sacrifice and struck out. That brought up Ooode with only ont out. The youngster had fanned twice al ready, but Jni told Witherup to pass him, and he did. filling the bases, so as to get at Bradley. Now, here is where I crime in. Bradley, of course, is a leftfield hitter, as everyone knows. We had figured it out that ho might hit to JlcBrlde. If so. I was to lose no time In getting .over to second base, so as to try for a double play. But my legs were none too good, so I played close to the sack s) I would not have far to go to hf-ud Ooode off. Had second base been my .regular position or had my legs been right, I suppose I would have played where a second baseman gener ally duos. But this time I was only about 15 feet from second and Bradley hit the ball on a line right into my hands. Ordinarily it would have been good for two or three bases and would have cleaned up the bags. As it was, I had a cinch making a double play. "Cleveland got one run in the next j and we got one in the seventh. and then Chech blew up in the ninth and we won out easily. But had Bradley's hit ever got away the Nans would not have played the game, they tijd in the! Cheeso nintli and we would have been beaten. I New.

DULL MARKET THE LAST DAY OF 1908. Few Important Changes in Prices No Flurry in Money Market at the Year's Close. New York. Dec. .11 Th ln.t i.... ,.r the year at the stock nphmn dull one. Business was light and there were few important changes in prices. The strong advance in New York Central was attributed to belief that K. II. Harriman was to become an active counsellor in its affairs, ru mor assigning him to the chairman ship of the board. A dropping tenden cy in some other Harriman properties was attributed at-tiie same time to persistent rumors that that gentle man's health was not entirely satis factory. This contradiction seemed to escape notice, and offers an example of the mixed irregular character of the small trading. The imminence of a holiday not unusually has thn .fT,.t of cutting don-n the volume of business and the'dose of the year is of especial effect in prompting a waiting attitude. Isolated advances were a feature of the market, and these occurrad for the most part amongst the less conspicu ous stocks. Most of them were unex plained. Some were supposed to be one simply to action by market pools. The custom of carrying the market quotations of securities for December ilst In Inventories and balance sheets of institutions which carry them as assets offers a motive for securing fav orable quotations on that -date. Prepa ration for this year end "window dress nig'' is an assigned cause of some such operations for several days past. There was some special pressure manifest on T'nited Stares Steel, and this was ex plained as being due to apprehension of harm from the reduction of kip.i duties. The elose of th- year a u- flurry in th money market. Rates for call loans, in fa' t, were rather easier than in the last few davs. Th" week's currency movement has been in favor of New York the eub-terasury opera tions contributing over $2,000,000 to the banks, while the interior has sent an excess of that much or more vpi- what has g-one out from here. It is not expected that rates for money Mil re lapse to great ease immediately after Neiv Year's.

Not only has amateur sport seen Us greatest period, but profes sional sport, too, has flourished, even though presidential year is generally conceded to be a poor one for those who are out for the long green. For the year liu8 there were a re markably large number of new marks in. track and field events inscribed on the records, mort tnan in years which have been considered banner ones. The Olympic games have been al luded to frequently as responsible for this, and they may have been, in a measure, but as a matter of fact, a number of the new records have been made since the games, which shows that the interest was not centered on the London meet alone, although those games were remarkable in themselves, so far as the accomplishments of the TTnited States athletes were concerned. for the members of the Yankee team demonstrated their prowess by estab lishing ten new Olympic records and lour world s records. The best work of American athletes during the year follows: 100 Yard Dash. J. A. Rector, University of Vir ginia 0.09 3-5 800 Meter Race. S1. TV. Sheppard, Irish-American A. C 1.52 4-5 1,500 Meter Run. M. W. 'Sheppard, Irish-American A. C 4.03 2-5 110 Meter "Hurdle. Forrest Smithson. Multomah A. Look These Over and See if Any Ap ply to Your Game. Don't step or slide over the foul line even though 110 one is looking. Don't swear when you miss an easy spare or even a strike. You may get it the next time. Don't allow your head to grow too big for your hat, should you be lucky enoufh to make a record string. Don't find fault with the pinboys, even though " the pins refuse to fall. It's not their fault. Don't try to Jolly your opponent in a match game, he might do the same to you. Besides, it's bad manners. Don't get mad when your captain has another man roll in your place when you are hitting them poor. Re member that he has the interests of the team at heart. Don't follow your average too close ly, you will never get anything that way. Instead watch and see where you are rolling the ball. That's tho only way to fatten your average. Don't try to imitate another bowler. Tou may be Just as funny looking yourself. Who knows? Don't try to roll duck, candle and bottle pins at the same time, you can only be good at one or the other. Don't roll too much, as you are ha ble to go stale, and no stale roller is wanted on any team. Don't roll unless you have rubber shoes, for you can slide better. Don't smoke and bowl at the same time, for the smoke is liable to jret in your eyes ana thus throw your arm out. Don't go inside the benches during a matcn game unless you are In the lineup. You are only keeping some man out of his place who has more right there than you have. Don't kick and complain of the poor condition of the alleys Just because you make a low score. Just remem ber that others can make a high score on the same allevs. Don't lob the ball, the owners of the alleys don't like it, and the alleys won't stand it. Don't complain of a lame foot, of a sore finger, of a sore face, of a tooth- acha, or any other ache or pain when yoir are unable to maka good score. Remember that they have all been given before you knew how to bowl. Try something new. Don't forget to read these twice. will be decided at Budapest.

The mon etary conditions will be the same a those in the Lasker-Marshall match. TRACK AND ROAD. Third Sackers Watch tor Keelar Now. One of the well known players who was in constant attendance during the American league meeting; last week was Willie Keeler, twice champion batsman of the world and probably the best bunter in the history of the game. His decline as a batter came up one afternoon and Keeler explained it as toiiows: My big batting averages In the years when I was right in my prime were aue 10 my ability to bunt. I can still bunt Just as skilfully, but it must be remembered tiiat each year I have slowed up a trifle. The first year or two that I lost a little of my speed it was scarcely noticeable-, but now, after four or five years, I find that I am often beaten by a stride at nrst Dase on bunts that I formerly Deat out witn ease. Ihen the third basemen are han dling, bunts better than they used to in the old days. When I was at my best there was scarcely a third base man in the National league that would try to throw me out. He would be satisfied to pick up the ball and hold it, taking no chances on a wild throw to first. Of course if he came in near the plate to play for a bunt I woiaI j.
