Duluth, Minn., Sept. 15.--Drug s^ore etnpl°yes *n this city Military Rifles Remodeled. Nations with larire armies were often loath to discard their old weapons and frequently altered existing models to bring them up to date. Thus we note that England converted her old muzzle loading Enfields in 1804 and 1800 to use the Snider action with a metallic cartridge case. In 1880 Austria adopt ed the Manullcher .433 caliber with a straight pull bolt action and a box magazine, loading from a steel clip. Two years later the caliber was re duced to .315, using black powder. The sights of these rifles were regraduated In 1890 on the adoption of smokeless powder.—Outing. HITLESS BASEBALL Remarkable Record That Was Made by Cy Young In 1904. The proud record for pitching dii seeutive innings of hitless baseball is held by no less a personage than the Hon. Denton Tecuniseh Young of blessed buseball.memory. Mr. Young, better known as "Cy," is the holder of several records in Tin usual feats in the pitching line. It was' back in April, 1904, that Young proceeded to .shatter all figures in this line, and before he got through he had created a new record in hurling hitless ball and one which stands to day clean cut and without a spot, or blemish and without a fioubt the great est piece of pitching the game ever itnessed. On April 30 against the Washington team Young took Winter's place iu the third inning, no one out, and pitched out the game, retiring the next twenty one batsmen in order. Young's next game took place May 5 against the Athletics. Cy pitched the best game of his long and honorable career that day and retired twenty-seven of those famous swatsmen of Connie Mack in row. In a game against Detroit on May 11 Denton T. pitched his famous fifteen inning 1 to 0 game against the Tigers, aud in the first seven innings Young set them flown without base hit.
