orlte, wearing a burr on his hit to keep him
from running out, galloped off with the first
rare, at six furlongs. He was ridden by
XVillle Davis, and had five lengths over
CtrtBssal. i> to 2. who beat Nom de Plume, a
20 to 1 shot, by a head. The time was
1.14 2-5.
P. J. Dwyer's Jennie McCabe. a full sister
to Major Dalngerfield, won the third race,
at a mile and a sixteenth, In a gallop. Wil
lie Knapp waited with her for three-quar
ters of a mile and then cut her loose. She
caught Mart Gentry, SO to 1, at the head of
the stretch and beat him by four lengths, in
1.47. Fred Cook's Miss Rillie. 4 to 1, who
lost ground at the start, nailed third money
from Belle of Setauket, a 100 to 1 shot, by
a head. Janeta and Bellatrix, the choices,
were nowhere.
The wise men. for some peculiar reason,
did not fancy The Southerner in the fifth
race, at a mile and a quarter, his odds go
ing up to 5to 2 from B to 5. while Chimney
Sweep was backed down to threes. Chim
ney Sweep made the pace for a mi!e. where
he gave way to The Southerner, but Knapp
ran over both of them with E. R. Bradley's
Palm Tree, 5 to 1. who came home an easy
winner by four lengths in 2-03 4-5. The
Southerner beat Chimney Sweep for the
place by two and a half lengths. Four
favorites were defeated.
GRAND CIRCUIT TROTS.
Geers Drives Winners of Two Principal
Races.
Speculative betters who had studied the
possibilities .of the horses entered in the
three races of yesterday at Detroit were
fortunate, and they might have won all
three had not Walker made a peculiar
drive on Albuta in the first heat of the
2.24 pace, the chamber of commerce con
solation stake. The judges took Walker
out and substituted Curry. A curious thing
about this chamber of commerce stake
and consolation is that Geers won both,
winning the first with Walter Direct, his
own entry, and the consolation by being
substituted for Shank behind Hal C.
Glenwood M. broke away In front in the
first heat of the 2.15 trot and won all the
way. although Geers tried to push Turley
to the front in the stretch. In the second
heat Glenwood M. sold at $.">0 to the field
at $40. Glenwood M. negotiated the dis
tance without trouble. The third heat,
yvith no selling, saw Glenwood M. in front i
from start to finish.
The first heat of the chamber of com
merce consolation stakes was an easy
victory for Hal C. in the stretch, as he
outfooted Bonnie Wilkes all the way
home from the upper turn. For the sec
ond heat Hal C. sold at $50 to $17 on the
field. The judges had taken Walker down
from behind Albuta, and Curry, who was
substituted, gave Geers a fierce race to
the half, but coming down the stretch
Geers laughed at Curry as he passed the
Albuta gelding.
Geers palpably laid up in the third heat,
and Bonnie Wilkes outfooted Albuta
down the stretch.
Josie made a bad break around the
lower turn In the first heat of the 2.11
pace and was forced to hustle in the
stretch to save the flag. Peruna won all
the way. In the second heat Peruna sold
at $50 to $05 on the field. Peruna looked
like a winner until De Ryder sent Josie
fast and won by an open length. In the
third heat it Was Josie $50, field $30. It
was hardly a horse race, as De Ryder,
behind Josie. had speed to burn and won
as he pleased, with Irish Jack second, be
cause Peruna was set back for running.

INTERNATIONAL CRICKET.
Marylebone tnd Quaker Colts in
Drawn Game.
The cricket match between the Maryle
bone Cricket Club eleven of London and
the team of eighteen Philadelphia "Colts,"
which began Wednesday on the grounds of
the Philadelphia Cricket Club, at Wissa
hickon Heights, resulted yesterday In a
draw.
The "Colts" scored 224 runs In the first
Inning of seventeen .wickets. The English
men made only lit! runs In the first Inning
of ten wickets and were compelled to fol
low on.
In the second inning the Marylebone play
ers had accumulated 110 runs for six wick
ets, when the match came to an end at
0:30 p.m. The work of the young players
of the Philadelphia team against the expert
bowling of the Englishmen was splendid.
Fatal Overinlulgence in Athletics.
CHICAGO, July 28.?A dispatch to the
Tribune from El Paso, Tex., says: As the
result of overindulgence In athletics while
a student at Columbia University, Arthur
T. Kerr, twenty-two years old, is dead
here. In a cross-country run In the month
of February Kerr, thinly clad, contracted
a cold which developed into tuberculosis.
He was graduated from Columbia in 1904.

PITTSBURG. July 28.?Pittsburg won its
match yesterday against the Chicago Wan
derers In the cricket tournament at the
Pittsburg Field Club. 156 to' 114 for one
inning each. The visitors have played all
their matches and the tournament ends
today with a match between Zlngarl, an
other Pittsburg team, and the Pittsburg,
and tomorrow the East will play the West.
No matter how It results, Detroit will be
tied by a Pittsburg team for the Spalding
trophy, and the tie will be played off at a
day and place to be fixed.
Vermonts Defeated the Vespers.
The Vermont Athletic Club defeated the
Vesper Athletic Club Wednesday afternoon
on the Monument grounds by the score of
10 to 4. The Vermonts played an errorless
game from beginning to end. The features
of the game were the fielding of Harveycut
ter, Newman and King and the heavy bat
ting of the Vermonts.
The Vermonts would like to arrange
games with all teams averaging from sev
enteen to nineteen years of age. Address
Helwlg, 403 Colorado building.
The \ ermonts will play the Vespers again
next Wednesday afternoon on the Monu
ment grounds, and a very exciting game is
promised.

Pete Browning, the old-time outfielder Is
dying at his home in Louisville. Browning
played the outfield for the Louisville club
in the old American Association days and
was well known all over the country by the
then patrons of the game. He was a hard

way.

has almost been fulfilled.

V\ hite Sox Wednesday, in Chicago, Harry
Davis of the Athletics rapped the ball to
the score board, located at the outer edge of

to get a ladder and climb up for It, while
Davis merrily coursed around the bases in
a home run.

New s~ Nichols In Illustrated Sporting
England and America.
From thQ London Chronicle.
Our good relations with the United States
are a matter of common knowledge. Rut
they could not have been reasserted on a
more significant occasion than the Ameri
can dinner held in London on Saturday
night to celebrate Independence day. The
mere fact that colonists could meet In the
capital of their old mother country to cele
bate the anniversary of their successful re- )
volt against her authority is a striking
proof that the old quarrels have become
n?atters of history which Interest both na
tions and offend neither. When our fore'en
minister can join with the American am
bassador In celebrating the Declaration of
Independence, th.j shade of Rurke may well I
be satisfied that the violent dispute which
he strove to av.>rt or to compromise has
been laid to rest for ever. Instead of dwell
ing on their past differences, both coun
tries now delight In recalling the earlier
days when they formed part of one empire
and In emphasizing the ties of race, lan
guage, political traditions and peaceful
trade which bind them to each other. A
Bismarck would perhaps sneer at all this
as so much sentlmentalism, but It Is not
without a direct bearing on International
politics, for as long as the two peoples are
so well disposed toward each other their
governments must be friendly, too. and the
co-opejition of England and the United
Slates ?-oes far to maintain peace in the
world. ,Tt is unfortunately true, as Lord
Lansdowne said, that there ls "a sort of
contagion of inrest" prevailing abong the
nations, and war still rages in the far eist.
But it Is easy to conceive of a far worse
st.ate of things If the two Anglo-Saxon
powers were not resolutely working to
gether to restrict the area of conflict and
to bring the war to an end. Had not Presi
dent Roosevelt, with the support of Eng
land and France, taken the Initiative, we
should not have even the faint gleam of
hope which the Russo-Japanese peace con
ference Is bringing. And this ls only one
of the many ways In which the good under
standing between the United States and
England has worked for the good of man
kind.
Man With a Sixth Sense.
In next Sunday's Star there will appear
the opening chapters of Louis Tracy's new
serial story, entitled "Karl GrUr." This
story deals with u man having a sixth
sense, which ho uses in a remarkable man
ner. It ls entirely different in theme and
treatment from anything Mr. Tracy has
yet written, and those who have read
"Souls on Fire." by this author, which
was recently concluded in The Sunday Star,
no doubt will be desirous of reading his
latest story.
Dust Suppression.
From tbe London Technics.
Writh the rapidly increasing number of
motor cars on the roads, the dust each sum
mer becomes more and more intolerable. If
rubber-tired wheels, of ample slxe for the
weight carried, were used exclusively, and
animals were not allowed on the roads, It ls
highly probable that, with roads as now
constructed, there would be little or no dust.
BATHE IN CAGES
HOW. PARIS POOB ESCAPE HEAT
IN HUGE SIEVES AFLOAT.
The "Grenouilleres" Open in Summer
for the Working Population of
French Capital.
P?rl* Cor. New York Tribune.
For the working population of Paris
summer begins only when the "grenouil
leres" open. How many foreigners know
the term, know It, that Is, not, In the dic
tionary sense of "marsh" or "frog pond,"
bult In the significance It has for Parisians?
Grenoulllere is the slangy appellation of
the floating baths In the Seine. Possibly
many visitors have never even noticed
them. They emerge from oblivion with
the advent of hot weather, when most peo
ple^are leaving the capital, and disappear
again, like the swallows, at the first hint
of approaching winter. From October to
mid-May they hibernate. During this pe
riod the sole indication of their existence
is a series of arklike structures, exceed
ingly long and narrow, moored to the
banks of the river at intervals within the
city limits.
About the middle of May these odd
looking edifices reawaken to life. The^r
decrease in length and increase in width;
jut out arrogantly into the Seine Instead
of lying unobtrusively Inshore; are made
inviting with brlght-hued paint and cheer
ful with bunting This, not the calendar,
tells the artisan class of Paris that sum
mer Is at hand, that the seaSon when a
bath may be taken has arrived. The ru
mor spreads: "The grenouilleres are
open!" Thenceforward until September,
particularly in the dog days, these estab
lishments do a flourishing business, are
crowded like a popular circus at certain
hours, and echo with merry cries all day
long. In short, a visit to a grenoulllere
Is the Paris workman's equivalent of an
afternoon at Brighton Beach.
Construction of Baths.
_ Nothing could be simpler than the or
ganization of these river baths. Broadly
speaking, they consist of two long pon
toons, measuring from sixty to one hun
dred yards in length and some seven yards
in width, and two shorter ones of the same
width, but about twenty yards in length.
The first form the sides, the second the
ends of the baths. By means of stout
beams and moorings the longer pontoons
are anchored in the river parallel to the
bank, opposite each other, and separated
by an interval of water measuring, say.
twenty yards in width, that being the
length of the short pontoons, which are'
fitted into the separating inter-.al at the
ends of the long ones.
The whole thus forms a sort of frame or
platform around a swimming pool of va
rying dimensions, according to the length
of the pontoons. Around this floating par
allelogram is built a superstructure of
small cabins, in two tiers for the bathers.
The bottom of the bath Is a movable oak
floor that, is forced down to the requisite
depth by means of a system of cogged
slides and toothed wheels. Generally
speaking, this floor slopes from a depth of
about two feet to some six or seven yards
at the deepest end.
Bent to the City.
The proprietors of the baths pay river
rent to the city authorities, the price va
rying, for the season, from about 1 cent
to 3 cents a square yard. Naturally, the
establishments in close proximity to or
within easy reach of densely populated
quarters arc more remunerative. One of
them, for example, the National Swimming
Academy, to translate its high-sounding
title, near the Pont de la Concorde, has
"bathed" as many as 2,500 in a single day.
This is rather an aristocrat among the
grenouilleres. A bathing ticket here costs
20 cents. At a neighboring establishment,
the Carlier baths, the entrance fee is only
6 cents, though, as an old swimming mas
ter assured me gravely, the water is "la
meme que chez le voisin" (the same as
next door). For the additional sous, how
ever, the bather may watch or participate
in games of water polo, may experiment
with an ingenious system of vertical and
horizontal douches or showers, and after
his bath may enjoy a stimulating drink at
a little bar while he watches the other
swimmers, and, possibly, allow the vague
ly Saracenic architecture and decorations !
of the establishment to suggest visions of
eastern magnificence to his imagination.
One form of the grenouillere Is for dogs.
Close to many of the big river baths there
is a sort of unofficial annex. It consists
of an expert in bathing, clipping and, if
the word is permissible, manicuring dogs.
His outfit is merely a camp stool, a tub of
water, a hair clipper, a pair of scissors
and one or two "surgical" instruments,
tweezers, a lancet and so on. For a couple
of cents he will carefully bathe your dog,
for a few more will cut his coat In compli
cated patterns, leaving frills around his
paws, a tuft at the end of his tail and 1
artistic "side whiskers" upon his haunch
es; wiu overhaul his claws, ears, eyes and
turn him out well groomed and smart a
credit to any proprietor.
COST OF LIVING IN FRANCE.
It is Much More Than in Free Trade
England.
From Public Opinion.
The cost of living abroad, especially in
I'rance, is a subject upon which wide va
riance of opinion exists. In an article in
the Economlste Francals of Paris, M. A.
de Foville uses England as a standard of
comparison and says that there is no doubt
that the English, on the average, have one
third more to spend than the French, and,
all things being equal, more money is earn
ed In England than in France. Further,
the cost of life in England is far less than
K Is in France. The contrary was true in
fctmcr days, but now 'he high tariff In
France end free trade in England have pro- i
duced their results.
Butter in France costs 30 to 60 cents per
pound. Swiss cheese 25 to 30 cents a pound,
and fowls 30 to 50 cents each. Milk is 10
cents per quart, bread 4 cents per pound,
and meat 30 to 50 cents a pound. Fruits,
v.-hich are grown abundantly in France,
cost twice as much as they do in England;
bananas and oranges, which Algiers exports
by millions, cost 4 cents each. Coffee is 50
to 00 cents per pound, tea as much as $1.40
to $1.80 per pound, and sugar V> to 12 cents
per pound. Coal In Paris Is worth $14 a
ton, and in many houses heat is a great
rarity. In London two boxes of matches
are given for one cent, but in France each
box costs 2 cents, and the matches are bad.
Drugs afre almost prohibitively expensive.
M. de Foville presents the balance sheet
of four average families. The first family,
with an income of $2,000 per year, repre
sents a Parisian household?father, mother,
two children, attending school, and a serv
ant. The second family, with an Income of
$1,600, represents a provincial household,
consisting of a father, mother, two children
and servant. The third family, with an In
come of $HOO, Is a Parisian household con
sisting of father, mother, a small child and
no servant. And the last is that of a
workman's family at Pelms, consisting of
father, mother, two children, five and ten
years of age, the family disposing of a
purse of $415 per year. The first family
1 expends $1,744 of its Income for actual liv
ing expenses, and has a balance of $256 for
pleasures, doctors and so forth; the second
family expends $1,25(1 and has $350 left; the
third," $667, and has a balance of $133; and
the fourth, $320, with a balance of $415. In
the case of the third family the food con
sists of cofTee, bread and butter for break
fast; at midday, meat, vegetables and des
sert; at 4 o'clock the mother and child have
chocolate and bread, and at 6 o'clock there
is a dinner of soup, vegetables and dessert.
This is certainly an excellent showing for
the money at the disposal of the house
keeper.
M. de Foville puts his finger on the cause
of this ?successful housekeeping when he
says that it "lies In the innate inclination,
one might say the passion, for economy.
With a few francs, the little Parisian, who
may be hungry many days during the year,
is able to make herself a hat and frock
which many wealthy women might well
envy. And it is with the table as It Is with
the'toilet. The art of utilizing the rem
nants Is an art essentially French, whether
the subjects be ribbon or ragouts. The
Bplrit of economy is as common In our
country as it Is rare In England. Fathers
and mothers in France consider themselves
the debtors of their children, and even the
bachelors think they should leave some
.thing behind."

BIRD'S-EYE MAPLE.
Maine Man Has 1,000 Woodpeckers
Making Valuable Timber for Him.
Patten (Me.) Cor. New York Sun.
"When a man has spent eighty years and
more than $75MX) In studying the ways of
wild things," said Greenleaf Davis, "it
would seem as if he should know something
about the nature of animals and birds, but
I am obliged to own that I am more ig
norant today than I was when my father
came here from Massachusetts and built a
sawmill in 1824, when I was nine years old.
He left all his property to me, including
miles of timber lands and money in bank,
and I have spent all of it except this spot
where my camp stands.
"What have I accomplished? That de
pends very much upon how you look at it.
The way the world sees tilings, my life has
been wasted. Instead of being rich I am
very poor, so poor that the town keeps me
in the almshouse free of cost through the
cold weather. I have almost assurred my
self of very many facts, though I am not
absolutely certain concerning any except
two.
"The first is that every woodpecker that
digs a hole in a tree for a nest chooses the
east side. I have spent more than half a
century studying woodpeckers. Within half
a mile of my camp are (512 woodpecker
nests. I have the largest collection of
woodpeckers in the world, though none of
them lft tame or more than half domesti
cated. I have spent as much as $250 in a
year buying meat to feed the woodpeckers.
Nobody living or dead nas studied tile wood,
peckers so much as I have, but the sum of
my knowledge Is very small.
"I know that these birds insist on having
the holes that enter their nests face the
cast because 1 have waited until the eggs
were laid in the holes In posts I had put
out and then turned the posts about. 1
have done this when the birds were away,
and never has any bird continued to in
cubate her young when the hole was
changed from due east. I think the wood
peckers choose an eastern aspect for the
reason that they can know when the sun is
up. They are all early risers, and having
no alarm clocks they make sun dials of
their nests.
"My second discovery is of some commer
cial use. Kor hundreds of years lumber
men and cabinet makers have been study
ing to learn what causes maple wood to as
sume the mottled and spotted form known
as 'bird's-eye.' In a hundred rock maple
trees perhaps one is a bird's-eye. Nobody
can pi^k the specific tree out by inspecting
the bark or the manner of growth. You
may have to chop 200 trees before you find
one. but it is worth the sacrifice.
"Fact is, the woodpeckers make all the
bird's-eye maple there Is in the world. In
flying about the woods they come to a rock
maple tree that yields very sweet sap in
the season when sap Is running. Most
birds like sweets?woodpeckers are very
fond of sugar. Having found a tree yielding,
a large per cent of sugar the birds peck
holes in the trunk and then stand against
the bark and drink the sap as It oozes out.
"After the sap has ceased to flow and the
trees have leaved out new wood and bark
form In those small holes. The pecking and
sap gathering goes on for years until tlio
tree, having given up so much sap to tho
birds, begins to furnish fluid containing less
sugar. In ten or twelve years after the
birds quit a tree the holes are all grown up,
and nobody can pick out the big bird's-eyes
from other trees that the woodpeckers did
not visit.
"More than fifty years ago I started In to
induce the woodpeckers to help me make
bird's-eye maples. This spring I had more
than 1,000 birds in my employ for two
months. On the side hill overlooking my
camp are about 300 bird's-eye maples of
my own make. I know every one of them,
though nobody else can guess at the valu
! able trees. If I live a few years longer 1
I am going to begin cutting, after which 1
shall have more money than I can spend.
If I die I have left a record of every tree,
so that the ? Audubon Society can market
the wood and devote the money to giving
protection to woodpeckers."
A HUSBAND AS THE PRIZE.
Strange Contests in Which the Par
ticipants Were Women.
From Tit-Bits.
The Joint birthday of King Carlos of Port
ugal and his consort was celebrated at a
village near Braga in a novel way. A hand
some young farmer named Coelhe, for
whom several local beauties had long sighed
in vain, determined to sacrifice his freedom
by offering himself as a prize to her who
should be Successful in a bullock race.
Seven handsome peasant girls appeared
at the starting post, riding barebacked on
bullocks with decorated horns and tails. A
capital start was effected, but ere half the
distance had been traversed the favorite
was thrown and displayed her chagrin !jy
seizing the tail of the second bullock in an
endeavor to impede a rival's progress. This
resulted in an unpopular competitor coming
in first, whereat the onlookers were so dis
gusted that they ducked tiie judge in a
pond.
New Brunswick was the scene, four years
since, of a bicycle race, over a course of
two miles, between a couple of girls who
were rivals for the affections of an eligible
swain. The prize himself, with a parson by |
his side, took his stand at the winning j
post, and no sooner had the winner. Miss '
Nellie Donnelly, passed the goal than the
ceremony was performed, and the newly
married couple left the ground amid the
acclamations of the large concourse that
had witnessed the contest.
To run to a point some hundred yards
distant, there to change dresses for others
laid in readiness on the ground, and to re
turn to the starting point was the trial
undertaken last year at Brussels by some
half dozen women to decide which should
wed a man who had offered himself as a
prize to the winner. On the word being
given, one at once dropped to the rear and
jogged on quite unconcernedly, for she was
aware that the sleeves of the dresses laid
out for her rivals had been sewn up. The
confusion consequent on this enabled her to
win the race and the prize, who, it is more
than likely, was well aware of the ruse.
The keeper of a Havre restaurant some
eight years back offered himself as a prize
to be run for in an obstacle race by young
women. Here, too, suspicion pointed to the
result having been previously arranged, for
the last difficulty to be overcome consisted
of wriggling between two bars so close to
gether that none but the slimmest could 1
pass. Six out of Eeven competitors were |
thus put out of the race, which was won
by a wisp of a girl, who, negotiating tlie
narrow space with little trouble, carried off
Boniface, in accordance, probably, with that
wily man's intention.
The first prize In a cookery competition
held at Vienna In the early SOs was a
young man, the owner of a pork butcher's
establishment, in whose declared opinion
good household management was an indis
pensable necessity In married life. Some
score or more spinsters and widows dis
played their culinary skill, that of a pro
fessional cook being accounted worthiest of
the prize. The young man, however, stulti
fied the decision of the Judges by eloping
with the prettiest of the competitors.
Equally perfidious was the conduct of a
young Liverpudlian who some years back
offered his hand and fortune as first prize
for a sack race, over fifty yards, to be
competed for by girls under twenty-five
years of age. At the goal he stood ready to
surrender himself to the winner, but when
he recognlz<nl in the leader a gaunt woman
of notorious temper his courage failed him
and he fled. The balked woman threatened
both law proceedings and personal chas
tisement, hut was at length mollified by
sufficient money to set her up in business.
