FRANK DURK AS A ROPER OF STEERS frRUE TALE OF HOW THE BAILI0F WENT INTO A CLOSED CORNER AFTER A BAD ONE. THEY HAD A MERRY CHASE Finally Frank MIanaged to Get Out With a Flying Leap, But He Was a Sad der and a Wiser Puncher. P1ank Burk, the big, good-natured bailiff in Judge McClernan's court, vas telling a story this morning before court opened. "Speaking of roping steers," began Bailiff Burk-nobody had been speaking of roping steers, but that didn't matter-'"I had a little touch of high life a few years ago at Wheatland, N. D. "The man for whom I was working had a corral about too feet square and about za feet high. It was made of boards that stood up on end, and was strong and secure. He Was Easy. "When I did this roping that I in telling about, they had a steer in that corral which was destined to go to the butcher's block. This animal had a tem per like a nest of hornets, and a half dozen men had been chased out of the enclosure while trying to rope him. "It looked as if they would have to shoot him and take him out. I didn't know about. the steer being vicious, rnd when some of the men proposed that I go into that yard and throw a rope over the steer's horns. I said yes. "\Well, that steer was about as petulant a proposition as I ever saw. When I went into the corral the men closed the gate behind me and told me to do my worst. As I remember the circumstaltce now, I think I did. When the steer saw sue he tore loose a low moo and started to tear up the ground with his feet. Wouldn't Be Bluffed. "I wasn't going to let any steer tun a bluff on me, so I walked up within so feet of him and began whirling my rope. The steer seemed interested in the proceeding for a few seconds. He looked sort of astonished; then he came forward as if he had an engagement with ine. Hie let out a few bellows that soundled like dragging a tool chest down stairs, and before I had time to throw the ripe be was within to feet of me. "Well, say, my duty was so plain tinder the circumstances that I didn't hesilate a second. I just turned and chased around that corral like a train of cars. The first few jumps I gained on the steer, and by snaking a few quick turns got about 5o feet away. The second lap showed the steer gaining slightly, encouraged by the cheers of the men who were sitting around on the fence. Took a Constitutional. "I made three circuits of the corral and began looking around for some one to call off the-steer. "The men on the fence shouted to me to keep up the pace and tire the steer out. The betting was a to z in my favor. One saan who had placed a small bet on the steer shouted to me that he would give sne half the winnings if I would throw the race. "Things began to poet exciting and T ,was going a pace that would make a jack rabbit's haste look like an amateur's half-try. Just then I spied a small square hole in the fence about six feet from the ground. Then He Was Sore. "That hole in the fence wasn't niore than two feet square, but it was big enough for my purpose. I sailed arauna once more just to get the lay of the land. then I cut across lots on the steer and headed straight for the mark, as }hey say in yacht racing. "It was a pretty high dive for me. but I made it without touching the boards. I just shot through that hole like an afrow and landed in a miscellaneous heap out side. I wasn't hurt very much, but I felt sore at that fellow that wanted me to throw the race." 'AUTOMOBILE CLUB OF AMERICA ENTERTAINED BY ASSOCIATEI) PR'ES;. Boston. Sept. 28.-The members of the Automobile Club of America, who arrived Saturday from New York, via Hartford, ,were the guests of the Massachusetts Au tomobile club, at a reception and luncheon at the Massachusetts' club house yesterday and afterwards made a three hours' run to Sunbury, and points through the revo lutionary battlefields.

E. G. PIERSON, A. Gi S. A DELIGHTFUL SUMMER TRIP. If you are going East this summer why not 'see Salt Lake City and Denver and the elegant scenery through Colorado along the lines of the Rio Grande system? You can't beat it for excellent service and good accommodations. Only one change of cars between Butte and Chicago and St. Louis. Write for rates and a copy of "With Nature in Colorado." (,. W. Fitzgerald, general agent, Butte, onntaea. "'KIs of settled Beers." rewed Aoea BDealdne Hope. Orde from , ialllolek SPORTING GOSSIP OF EVENTS OF THE DAY Spokane will end the season at Seattle and it is pretty safe to predict that the going will not be so easy as it was last week. Butte is doing a good stunt at holding its own. Havre will have three days' of racing, beginning about October IS. Arrangements have been made with the Ilavre Racing association and it is believed that a suc cessful meet can he held in the middle of October. The only question will be the weather. Captain Wringe, skipper of Shamrock ill, has been engaged by August Belmont again. Wringe had charge of Mr. Bel mont's Mineola in 19oo, the year that the Ilerreshoff yo-foot class appeared, and won many races with her. He may again be found at the helm of that boat next season. "Brooklyn Tommy" Sullivan, the feath erweight, who has been fighting in the \'est for the past ytar, has fully re covered from a slight attack of malaria, and has started to train for his fight with "Kid" Herman of Chicago, which takes place during the first week of October in St. L.ouis. Right upon the heels of the announce ment that the match between the colored heavies, Jack Johnson and Sam MIVey, had been clinched for the new C'ohna Athletic club near San Francisco, comes the announcement that the contest will not take place. Instead of McVey and Johnson clashing for the colored heavy weight championship, Marvin Hart, I.ouis ville's fistic idol, will in all probability meet Johnson in place of McVey, who is tied down by an old contract with the Century club of I.os Angeles which lihe cannot break. Hart has been notified of the match, and if terms olTfered suit him, he will very likely start at once for San Francisco to begin training, There is a desire on the part oi the Frisco sports to see Hart perform, and Manager Gibbs of the Colma clu't thinks it will prove a good match. \\hen McVey fought Ed Martin at L.o. Angeles he made a return contract with Manager Mc('arey of the Century club to fight Johnson in that city. Johnson was wise enough to see that there was more money in fighting at San Francisco., and refused to meet McVey at Los Angeles. Mr. Carey would no. stand for a transfer of the match, and so he concluded to hold McVey to his contract. The result is that McVey cannot tight Johnson, and as there is no better drawing card to be had than Hart, the match is now up to him. A Joplin old timer who used to play baseball has a potato and a stuffed buz zard hanging in his room, and therefrom depend a tale. The potato came near causing the West Side team of Joplin to lose air exciting game of baseball .I years ago, and the buzzard caused it to win. The last half of the ninth inning had arrived, with the score a tie. The West Siders had three men on bases, the old timer being at third. It went wild, and the man at third ran home. When he got there, however, the catcher clapped the ball on him. The East Side pitcher had thrown a potato out of the diamond YANGER IS CONFIDENT HE SAYS HE WILL WHIP HANLON TOMORROW NIGHT-BOTH MEN IN PRIME CONDITION. San Francisco, Sept. 28.-Benny Yanger is fast rounding into superb shape for his bout with Eddie Hanlon here tomorrow. Each day the little Chicago feather weight goes through his training stunts with Billy Otts, who is also getting into condition for a bout on the same night in the preliminary to the Yanger Hanlon bout. Otts is to meet George Fuller at 140 pounds in a I5-round affair for a side bet of $,5o. .)tts recently de feated Toby Irwin and is one of the best men in his class in this part of the country. When boxing today Yanger and Otts went at it hamtmer and tongs. Ilenny showed up to be as quick as lightning and is working to solve Ilanlon's peculiar crouch. To bring about this end Otts when box ing with Benny covers up like Ilanlon when in action and Yanger is fast learn ing to solve the problem which puzzled him so much in his last fight with HIanlon. "I'll beat IIanlon this time as sure as I ever did any other fighter I ever met in the ring," said Yanger. "And it will be a legitimate victory at that. The fact that I am the long shot in the betting is an incentive for me to will, as I am intent on risking some of mly own money on the result, and at the betting price the night of the result I should will hand somely as a result, should I beat my man. "The injured wrist is well again, thank you," continued Benny, when asked if the member, which he injured in his last fight was better. "My hands are stronger today than ever before and at this very moment I am aching to land them on IIanlon's jaw." TO INVESTIGATE ARREST OF A CHINESE OFFICIAL BY A5SO'lIATED PtRES, San Francisco, Sept. 28.-Chow Tsz Chi, first secretary of the Chinese legation in Washington, has arrived here. He says he has come to this coast to thor oughly investigate the charge made by the police against Tom Kim Yung, late secre tary of the local consulate. Secretary Chow says he is convinced that the Chinese minister will demand that a searching Inquiry be made by both the Chinese and white authorities in this city. Panama Treaty Unlikely. IIY ASSOCIATEIW PtRESS. New' York, Sept. 28.-A Columbia sena tor, who appears to have relialby infor mation, says, according to a Herald dis patch from Bogota, that the commission appointed to draft a new proposition for a Pananma canal will report the same to be useless to keep from falling over it, and it was this which the base runner at third had seen him throw. "After losing such an excellent chance to win," the old timer continued. In re lating the incident to the Joplin New. - Herald, "we felt somewhat chagrined. but kept pegging along nevertheless. Fugr 23 innings the game lasted, but in tlhe 2.id after the East Siders had scored thr'e tallies almost everyone went home, ex pecting that it was all over with uts. Btlt it wasn't. The East Siders' pitcher got wildl from excitement in the atd and otir first three men took bases on halls. Then their twirler 4tuckled down to business aid fanned a couple of men in succession. The next fellow at bat was a man who hadnit secured a hit all summnner. lie never fanned, but invariably knocked a high sy and was trapped. Although there webe three men on as mtany bases, our prospects did not appear bright. Then the hattlr did the expected; he slalmmeld out a high fly to the East Siders' center fielder. Straight towards hint it flew, when sul denly from no one knew where a big buzzard swooped down oin the ball fron above, knocking it out of the fielder's reach, resulting in four men tallying. "The shock to the buzzard in coumirg in contact with the ball was so gre;it that the big bird died. That is the reascdn I have such' peculiar ornamlentations."

McA.leer swas thie trainititn oufieider, so to spleal--thel man who marked the change froml the old outfichlinRg methodt to those now in voglle. W\ilii McAleer the Ipresent system of covering outfield grould Ilegoil to be universal a ty teil which ha a madI tihe outfield play Iess than half as showy, but far more effective. The fielders of thire past played usually In otne spot, and wouldl wear a patch of ground bare as Ihcy hoofed erould it. Each took up a tpositiotl which, ill is opinion, was thie ideal spOt fromt which a start could be taken for any fly. lie stayed there through the game, and whenever a ball was hiit he made that spot the starting point and the pt d te to which h returned. Naturally, any catch made of a far distant fly seemed tremendouisly showy and sensational. Tile fielder wuuld run like a deer, and ihe hald to. Some of the men who were covering the gardens were weak batsmen, but atayedl in the game because they could get the hits that were fullilg atear the carriage yard. Nowadays all outfielders are supposCd to be hard hitters, and yet lfewer' flies fall safe thali in thle past. The fielder of today ranges all over his territory, figuritng out where the batsman will hilt, aand is continually under long flie with less thatn half tie run that the old tlmer had to make. All of wlich lhas helped c:;t down the batting, makes the outfield game seem less brilliant, and gives the old tlilme fans a chrance to tell of the great deeds in days gone by,-Cleveland Journal.
