I presume he has .taken a peep
into Marquard's book, which
would show him how short-lived
is popularity. Marquard, after
being held aloft on a bed of roses
after his 19 straight games, has
been dropped with a cold thud
since he has been unable to fool
the crack hitters of the National
league, and the bleachers shout
"Take him out" the first time the
umpire calls "Four balls."
Tesreau is saving his money.
He lives at a little hotel near the
Polo grounds, about which there
is a tradition that it once housed
George Washington for the
night. He wears moderately good
clothes (Tesreau, not Washing

big league he depended upon his
speed almost entirely. He said,
modestly, "My curve ball doesn't
amount to much, and McGraw
and Mathewson got after me to
try the spitter, and it is with this
that I am making my success'?' .
Tesreau has been likened to Ed
Walsh in his prowess with the
spit ball. He lacks Walsh's ex
perience and clever headwork,
however, but the ones who seem

them guessing in the National)
league next year, although Tes
reau tells me he has not signed
