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
"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
"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
"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
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."

again. Wringe had charge of Mr. Bel

"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
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

causing the West Side team of Joplin to
lose air exciting game of baseball .I years

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

THIS TALK OF THE OLD
TIMERS AS CHAMPIONS
Their Work as Fielders Was Showier,
but the Men of Today Play as
Good Ball or Better.

No lfua who saw these old fiahlder's arnd has
sea'aa thos,'e of' the Ipreat.t call ldeny Ithat thle
work of the old fellows did seem sholwier.

for ilniatler, would run wiill thle ball a vast
distanlce, wlhelr round, an!d get the leather
wilhlne l.Ut.d, llugh Nicol's raullning calches
were swnethlng thll like of whiclh ha seldoml
abeen eenl, and Mc.leer was a past marvel
when it came to judging and gellinlg flies.
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
