Here and There
With "Carlo'
The XfiT Champ.
Ho was born with a long cigarette In
his facc and was nourished on Pllsen
and schnapps. -Dear old Heidelberg's
finest he swilled by tho caso just to
keep up Ills ginger, perhaps. O, a
tough sort of bird Is our little Kroii
f'rinz, and an athlete doughty and cun
ning. All his schnapps and cheroots
must improve his wind, since he is
breaking the record In running.
And, iil*er the Yanks have completed
their trip to Berlin and have quit rais
ing Cain, then the old-fashioned
coaches- will lake tip the trip and pull
forth a new method to train. Their
milers they'll tell to Imbibe steins of
beer and to . practice the art of red
tinting; dear I'rinz Kitel Fred's mem
ory they'll moan and revere, for he
broke the world's record In sprinting. j
How llo They IJo It f
A husky lad was Zip McGhee; a]
brawny, scrapping wrestler lie, who
know the game from A to Z. was solid
and was qulclf?a knotted, muscle
bounded tough who never failed to
treat 'em rough and held an ace within
his cult to take up any trick, lie was
ullllcted oft with Ills of pulling off the
old jiu jits; his leathery and nnm-llk?i I
ii.its knew just the way to do it. <->,
Zip was there with everything when
he crawled over in the ring: he was the
total Sabbath Sing, but, then, nobody !
knew it.
Now, Lucius Fairchild was a goop
who had a weeping willow stoop. He
coughed as if lie had the croup, his
bark was like a heifer's. You'd shiver,
gleefully and laugh could you see Luke
attempt to strafe a punching bag ? he'd
make a calf seem airy as the zephyrs.
He'd be a riot If lie could live out in
soinc secluded wood or slowly crawl
within his hood and lose himself like
Crusoe. But, then, he had an agent
who could shoot forth paragraphs of
goo that l<ucius was the whole blamed
::oo?and everybody knew so.
The two met on the mat one night,
and. when friend relT called "time" on
tight, 'twas said that Luke's hurts were
l? 111 slight, while Zip was badly broken.
The management then shot the ja/.x
that Zip had hied from Boston. Mass..
will lb Luke had shined shoes for his '
sass down In dear old Hohoken. it
knew the papers would declare thai i
Battling Lucius was a bear. tha? he'
could withstand wear and tear, and
that was why he fought so. It knew I
the public all would think that Zip had '
eaten like a kink, and, hence, lie was
a flabby gink. And everybody thought

park this afternoon, according to "Bob"
Sutton, manager of the Alcoa. "The
Aviators and Kandotph have their game
at llyrd Park to-day, and want to play
there," declared "Bob" last night. But
the Alcos and the Old Virginians, when
they mix it up. will bid fair to make
the spectators forget the suggested
second game.
It has been suggested and seems a
good Idea that an exhibition be played
between the ollicers at Catnp Lee and
the Alcos. Both nines, as far us can 1
be learned, would be about evenly
matched, lioth have good pitchers and
a sweet fielding aggregation. It Is
with the fans to decide whether they
want a return of the cantonment-city
exhibitions, such as were pulled olf J
some time ago by the Battle Axe, semi
pros. and Kd. Ivlepfer's l'hree Hun
dred and Kluhtccnlh Infantry.
Strong tribute to the feeling of so
ciability caused by the great sport of
trapshooling is tendered by the fact
that many of the largest Industrial
concerns in the United States are now
forming gun clubs among their em

feeling of good fellowship and interest
