A Resume of the Records Made
by Bicyclists in 1891.
TYINDLE'S WONDERFUL BIDING.
He Has lowered the American Time
from 2m. 25 3-Sa. to 2m. 15s. A Com
prehensive Tale of a Season's Achieve
ments on Both Sides of the Water.
The past season will long be remembered
by cyclists as one of the most remarkable
ever known. Record after record has
fallen before the rider of the silent steed
until it looks as if the mile trotting record
of 2m. 88. will soon be equaled.
At the commencement of the past season
the American record for one mile was 2m.
3 3-5s. by Willie Windle. It is no w 2m. 153.,
which record was made by the same rider
at Springfield on the 17th day of October.
A. Zimmerman, AB. Rich and W. F.
Murphy of the New York Athletic club;
W. Windle, Berkeley Athletic club; P. J.
Berlo, G. M. Worden and Schosfer of the
M. A. C. and G. F. Taylor, of Harvard
university, have all ahown record break
ing form dtring the year. The first five
named have all beaten Windle's last year's
record of 2m. 25 3-5s.
Zimmerman has been most successful.
He is credited with having won prizes
valued at between 88,000 and $10,000 dur
ing the season. W. Windle, the cham
pion, has not been quite himself this year,
G. M. "WORDEK.
but nevertheless he managed to win the
mile championship at Springfield in 2m.
23 3-5s., defeating Berlo and Zimmerman
in one of the finest races ever witnessed.
At New Haven, Sept. 8, Windle rode a
splendid mile, again doing 2m. 23 3 5s.
through a big field of starters and riding
the last quarter of a mile alone.
The first sensation of the season was W.
F. Murphy's mile at New Haven in 2m. 26s.
Aug. 18, at Springfield, the same rider did
lm. 45s. for three-fourths and 2m. 23 2-5s.
for the mile.
Three men have succeeded in lowering
tho record for the flying quarter, that
honor now being shared by Zimmerman,
who accomplished 23 4-5 seconds at Spring
field, Sept. 8, and G. M. Worden and
Schcefer, of the M. A. 0., who equaled
the performance on the following day.
At the Springfield meeting held in Sep
tember many wonderful performances
were accomplished. Undoubtedly the
most remarkable was Zimmerman's half
mile in lm. 6 4-53., which he rode on Sept.
10. This broke the wbrld's record, tba
previous best being lm. 7 3-5s., by F. J.
Osmond, of England. Sept. 2, P. J.
Berlo established a new mile record of
2m. 18 l-5s. His time for three-quarters,
which was lm. 42s., equals the world's rec
ord. Another wonderful performance was
A. B. Rich's mile in 2m. 193. G. M. Wor
den broke the two mile record, his time be
ing 5m. 6 4-os.,
At the Peoria meeting W. F. Murphy
broke Worden's record, creating a new one
of 4m. 59 3-5s., and Zimmerman broke the
three, four and five niilo records, his time
being 7m. 49 2-5s., 10m. 27s. and 12m.
52 4 5s., respectively. G. W. Dorntage, of
Buffalo, wound up the meeting by mak
ing a string of new records from six
to twenty miles, his time for the latter
distance being 53m. 56 2-5s. The previous
record was 5Sm. 20s., by J. W.'Kowe.
Sept. 22, at Peoria, Zimmerman won
tho mile race in 2m. 2ls., W. F. Murphy
being second in 2m. 21 4-5s. This is the
fastest time ever accomplished in a race.
At Springfield Oct. 9, in a trial against
time, A. B. Rich succeeded in breaking the
world's two mile record of 4m. 50s. by just
)4 second, but his claim to the honor was
short lived, for on the following day G. F.
Taylor, of Harvard, did 4m. 48 4-5s. Oct.
17, Windle, in an attempt to beat the
world's record for a mile, succeeded in
doing the distance in the wonderful timo
of 2m. 15s. This was a fitting wind up of
a remarkable season. On the same day H.
C. Tyler is credited with having beaten
Zimmerman's half mile record of lm.
6 4-5s. and establishing the now one of
The tandem records havo been altered
repeatedly during the season. Sept. 8
Messrs. Banker aud Brinker rode a quar

Sept. 10, Messrs, Draper and Deyler again
altered tho figures for three-quarters, do
ing tho distance in lm. 49 3-53. Sept. 11,
Banker and Brinker made new records for
one nnd two miles, riding the respective
distances in 2m. 27 l-5s. and 5m. 9 3-5s. At
Peoria, Sept. El, the mile record was again
broken. Messrs. Zimmerman and Murphy
succeeding in altering the figures to 2m.
Some remarkable performances havo
also been accomplished during the season
JU England and France. -In May a race
from Bordeaux to Pans, a distance of 80S
miles, took place, G. P. Mills was the
winuer, his time being 2t5h. 34m. The first
four men to finish were Englishmen. The
first Frenchman was Jiel Laval. He cov

In comparing the above it should be re
membertid the English tracks are four
lap3 to the mile, while in America the
tracks are a half or a mile in circumfer
ence and having fewer turns are conse
quently more favorable for fast perform
ances. The American quarter mile record
was made straightaway, the English on
a curved track. Taylor's record for two
miles was mado in a trial against time at
that distance, and Zimmerman's three,
four and five mile records were also made
in a five mile trial. The English records
from two to twenty-four miles were all
made in a twenty-four mile trial against
time. Long distances are seldom ridden
in America, which accounts for the Amer
ican records being so far behind the Eng
lish, all the records above twenty miles
having been accomplished as far back as

E. D. Fulfordis undoubtedly the world's
greatest pigeon shot. In the first of three

each match, Fulford recently defeated the

the grounds. In the second match Ful

Brewer's 9S. The third match went to
Brewer by a score of 119 to 115.
Fulford is a resident of Bridgeport,
Conn., and is twenty-nine years of age.
For some time ho has been superintendent

Umpires, like poets, are born, not made.
Of all the thankless posts of duty on a
baseball field that of the autocrat of tho
game ranks first, ne is monarch of all he
surveys according to the rule books, but
the truth is the umpire's subjects are k1
most as explosive as a lot of South Amer
ican patriots. Umpires are supposed to be
a bit different from the ordinary run of
mortals. If they have feelings which should
command respect they are expected to
carefully conceal them from press, players
and public. Upon their devoted heads is
poured the wrath of the baseball gods in
season and out. Only a small percentage
become hardened to the abuse that is their
lot and each campaign sees some new vic
tim ready for the sacrifice.
For over a year one of the most famous
characters who ever handled an indicator
behind the plate has remained off the grass.
The name of Alfred Gordon Jennings will
attract very little attention from the grand
army of the cranks, but "Alamazoo" Jen
nings lives iu the memories of enthusiasts
in half the states of the Union, while those
in the other half have heard of him. "The
Parcbed Corn King of America" is the
new title given to this worthy, who is the
father of a new and unprotected industry
in the Queen City of the west While nib
bling a grain of roasted corn one day tho
idea struck Alamazoo that the city was
hungry for that article of food, and bor
rowing $L50 he went into the business.
From a route supplied by basket it grew
until until he travels by chariot, covering
three cities Cincinnati, Covington and
Newport and netting every day ten times
the amount of the original capital invested
in the enterprise.
The diamond has seen Alamazoo for the
last time. He was born in Porkopolls
forty-one years ago, and began his ball
playing career as one of the Red Oaks in
1S53. Later he was in the field for the
Buckeye? in the days that "Cherokee"
Fisher posed in the box and Joe Dockney,
afterward carved to death in a fight, was
behind the bat. For a couple of seasons
Jennings had been managing the team at
Delaware, O., and catching a twirler
nuied Hill. When the MjiwauKees, then
in tne League, arrived in Cincinnati dur
ing the season of 1S75 every one of the
catchers on Jack Chapman's staff was
crippled Billy Holbert, Charley Bennett
and Billy Foley. Jennings was hunted up
and Mike Golden put in to pitch.
"We were all mixed in our sizns," de
clared Jennings to me in teliing the story.
"I signed for an cutcurve and got an ln
shoot which broke a couple of fingers, 'Go
ahead,' I jaid, 'I'll stay here all day even if
I have to btop 'em with my elbows! Yon
can't drive me away" Well they didn't,
but I had seventeen passed balls that af
ternoon, and next morning O. P. Caylor
gave me the nickname that has stuck
to me like wax for sixteen year?. Hia
headlines were The Coming Catcher;
Alamazoo Jennings makes his debnt; his
ban s gave out, bnt his gall lasted.' I
read a few lines and wanted to fight. I
read a few lines mora and had to laugh.
The first game I ever umpired waa in the
Milicreek Bottoms in 1S75. I had a broken
thumb aBtiwa. put into officiate brsAe

Grand Itapids team to Covington to piay
the Kentons, and when Jennings declared
a Michigander out for interfering with a
play, Phillips vowed vengeance. He rec
ommended Jennings to Sam Morton, and
he was assinged to Fort Wayne in the
Northwestern league to succeed Charley
Cushman Milwaukee's manager today
who had just been mobbed and laid out
with a clinker hurled by an angry partisan.
Alamazoo was a howling success, and
eay3 he was interviewed by press, chief of
police and the mayor to prove that Fort
Wayne's enthusiasts were not hoodlums.
There was one town in that circuit Still
water that couldn't boast of a single
newspaper or n street car, but it had a
$6,000 a month team and soon accumulated
a lot of bad debts. John Clarkson, Dave
Foutz, Bob Caruthers, Charley Ganzel
and Kid Baldwin all played in that
league, but it toppled in August and Ala
mazoo finished the season with the Union
"And I'm still waiting and watching for
a check for my salary," he declares. It was
in Washington that Alamazoo made his
first and last piay to whip an fcditor. One
of the Sunday papers had, metaphor
ically speaking, "ripped him up tho back,"
and he took it upon himtelf to call aud
correct the false impression. The editor
was in, and Alamazoo is willing to make
an affidavit that there were twelve or fif
teen other members of the staff who took
turns at usinif him for a doormat, and
when the performance was over somebody
hit him in the neck with a pot of paste,
and he was wafted swiftly down the stairs.
Next day the gods of the bleachers made
Iifeaburdenforhimand called him "Paste
pot Jennings." The next season found Jen
nings in the Southern league, and as his
salary came in ten dollar installments ho
jumped into the Blue Gra&s league, and j
made his Kentucky debnt at Harrodsburg,
where Danville was playing. One decision
of his aroused the animals, and one ob
streperous gentleman was "called" by Mr.
"I'm here to umpire this game," re
marked Alamazoo to the boisterous citizen.
"Yes; and I'm here to e that it um
pired rightl" responded the Kentuckian,
as he pulled out a six shooter as long as
"My friend," called out Jennings, "don't j
get excited. I'll fcee that it's umpired
The last year in harness wa3 a stormy
one, and it was spent in the Interstate
league. On one occasion Alamazoo ad
ministered a rebuke to a kicking player
that restored peace to the diamond for that
afteroon at least. A bad decision had
been given and the growU were loud.
Turning to the protesting captain, Jen
nings asked, "Do you ever make any er
rors?" "Of course I do'" was the response
"So do I " retorted tne umpire. "Now
close that hole in your face and play ball
or I'll fine you an X"'
ThegooddfcedsofB.hir.es and Harring
ton at Davenport and Malachi Kittredge
at Quincy were revealed to major league
managers by Alamazoo. Umpires in minor
leagues send many pointer to "headquar
ters" that bear fruit.

"I have been told that I play fairly well,"

my cards with my eyes shut."

"Good laads! hat what m the woman
talking about Mr. Bowser, I've played
more gamee of euchre than you'v got hairs
in your head, and no one crer knew me to
feel anything but bereae. A hnsbaod who
can't play a game of curds with his wife
without getting mud had better hang up.
Go ahead and deal. The poorest player al
ways has the deal. Hearts is trump, eh?
Ah, ha! I will proceed t lead thfa."
Mr. Bowser had a good hand und ecored
a march, and after counting up be leaned
back and laughed and naked.
"Any other little gasae that yon can play
better than this, Mr. Bower?"
He dealt aed scored another point and
chuckled some more, and when the game
was fioisbed sbe had seored onlyonn point.
"Beginning to get red in the face al

have promised not to get mad, though, and
I shall hold you to it "
She had nothing to nay, bnt scored a
march on the new game. Mr. Bowner triM

later, when the toiae wm naiod aad efao

"Don't you worry! You don't get an
other mitjjle point tonight."
She did tneugh. She got the first point
on tie new gam, and he bKan to look
very sober He brightened up a little when
ke scored one, but that w&3 all ho got on
"That s even games, and I'm a 'Chicago'
abtadi" she exclaimed, aa the oonnted.
"Ob, Itu, eh It's a wonder you didn't

cheating at cards doesn't seem to trouble
