BASEBALL TEAM OF THE SHUTS Manager Ryan Picks His Merry Men. HAS ONE MORE THAN THE LIMIT He May Get Kid of One Catcher— Queer Jumble He Him. After giving over a score of aspirants as thorough a trying out as possible. Manager Ryan of the St. Paul baseball team is prepared to announce the person nel of the regular team. Fifteen men are iv his list, counting the veteran himself. The Western League agreement is that only fourteen men shall be carried by a club this season, and the rule is supposed to include the manager if he is a regular player. Ryan has, however, three catch ers and may find a chance to let one of them go if the rule is enforced. Follow ing is Manager Ryan's line-up for the comiug game to be played on May 3 at St. Joseph: Catchers, Bill Wilson, Fred Holmes and Fred Carrish; pitchers; Bumpus Jones, Willie McGill, "Pap"- Thomas and Knep per; first base, Werden; second base, Huggins; shortstop. Holly; third base, Ziegler; left field, Ryan; center field. An drews; right field, Parker; utility, Cassa boine. Some Go Home. Of the others who have been given a trial, Roberts, the Indian, and Pitcher L* Gore have been furnished with transpor tation home; Myroski, Cox and Kaven augii will be kept for awhile. It is like ly that Hunt, Williams and Whelan will find berths in the Xorth Dakota league. It is a queer jumpble of veterans and colts that Jimmy Ryan has picked as saints for this year. He and Perry Wer den, Bill Wilson, "Bumpus" Jones and Tom Thomas ought to be able to take care of themselves in the Western League, but how the others will perform is still one of the experiences in store for the fastidi ous fans of St. Paul. Knepper has not arrived from St. Louis yet, although he has been released. It is understood that St. Paul has the first chance at Knepper, but if he is not secured a fourth pitcher will be needed. IM II SHI Hi. AND BOSTON Both Lose In the National League. Two games were played in the National League yesterday, but they were sufficient to jolt the two last clubs out of the cher ished 1.000 hofe in the percentage column. Pittsburg and Boston both dropped their Chicago honors yesterday and came down to the common herd. Pittsburg relied on Waddell, the Rube, and he did wonders for six innings, ap parantly having the game won -with ease. Then he mounted one of Count Zeppelin's airships and the remnants or whatever they call the St. Louis team, made eight runs until a lad named Chesbro was called on to stop the flood. Harper, a young twirler, did very nicely for the St. Louis teem. The score: R H E St Louis 2000 00 5 3 *—10 10 2 Pittsburg 0 2100100 o—4 8 5 Batteries—Harper and Sehriver; Waddell, Chesbro and Zimmer. Ed Delehanty's triple in the eighth in ning with three men on the bases gave the Philadelphia team a victory over Bos ton yesterday. But for this timely drive the "beaneaters would have won again. The score: , rh c Boston 020000010—3 10 2 Philadelphia 0001 00 0 4 •—5 8 0 Batteries—Willis and Kittredge; Orth and Douglass.

The fat man has said for a year, past that the baseball fans of the country have been widely clamoring for a major league in which the mighty Ban should be the president. To create a major league he has -taken Mil waukee, Chicago, Detroit and Cleveland of the old American league, added to them Boston, -: Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore, bribed about thirty players of the National League to desert to his crowd, and this patchwork he calls a major league. . •,v i ;^ Johnson's league is going to play at half the National League prices. To pay expenses it will naturally be necessary to draw from 50 to 100 per cent more peo ple than the big league teams. A disastrous fight is expected by many. It will be an interesting one, at any rate. A number of lawsuits are threatened by the National League to restrain certain deserters from playing ball with the American League. -\_ This is the day for them to get action if they are in earnest in their springtime threats. ■•.-.: The opening games will be as follows: Cleveland at Chicago; Boston at Balti- THE SECRET of SUCCESS r^^S^V IS A HEALTHY MIND IN *^?|§k A HEALTHY BODY.
