Fielder Otis Clymer of Pittsburg.
Chance's Second Pennant. POWERS' MIDSEASON REPORT '-Smiling Pat" Says Players and Not Chilis Should Pny Fines and Laude His Staff of Umpires?Eastern Raco Fairly Close. Outfielder Otis Clyuier of the Pitts burg National league team has had a short professional career, us he tlrst attracted attention with the Willlums Iiort (Pa.) Independent club In 11)02. Iii WOU Ruffalo curried him us u sub? stitute und farmed him out part oj* the season. His rapid development made him u regular member of the Buffalo team for IHO-I, from which club he was purchased by the Plttsburg club In the tall of 11)04. In .Manager Stalling*' opinion young Clymer was the best outfielder de? veloped In the season of lOOi. That fall be was sold t? the Plttsburg club, for which club he played good ball throughout tho 1005 season. In 1000 he broke a leg in the spring and was out of tho game for most of the season. This year he has been In his former line condition und has played good ball. President Put Powers of the East? ern league has Introduced a pleasing li novation In the form of a mtdsea son report to his club owners and for the benetlt of the press at large. In his report Mr. Towers calls attention to the closeness of the race and to the excellent attendance, despite the mipropltlous spring, and makes the prediction that the campaign will prove both artistically and Uuuuclully successful to a greater degree than was expected or warranted by tho early outlook. President Powers also declares that he Is satisfied with the work of his five umpires, Messrs. Couway, Owens, Cusnek, Kelly and McCarthy, and that he doesn't expect to make any further Changes during the season. He uluo give his umpires constant support under all clrcumstauces, Mr. Powers gives public notice of his Intention to cull, In the near fu? ture, it special meeting of the Eastern league to net upon his recommendation that an Ironclad rule bo adopted which will compel hall players to pay their own tines. President Cowers de? clares that three-quarters of the club managements pay the flayers' fines under present condition, which prac? tice defeats the ends for which the piayeni are punished. Frank Chance bus swallowed the canary. He bus boosted his Chicago National crew of sphere smashers to the top of the leugne pennant race, and he has the gaudy silk rug cinched for 1007. Chance Is not only a stellar diamond general; he is a great first baseman ami a deadly certain bats? man. Chance Is not a disciple of chance ? that is. he avoids belling and gamhllug in general, like a Sunday school scholar. He puts all his spare change Into Windy City real estate, and he hopes to own the whole burg some day. Ball Managers Should Have Their Own Way. A baseball manager cannot hope to accomplish any results unless he Is given carte blanche and is entirely freed from Interference of the officials of tho club. In Boston Mr. Dovoy of the .Nationals holds himself completely aloof from Millinger Ten hey on all that concerns the players. II Is up to Tenuey, he says. The responsibility Is wholly his. There is no butting In there. Tcnney feels the responsibility und works all the harder for it. He has more responsibility than he had last season, for he has the say about getting players, und price Is not allow? ed to stand in Hie way. If a player Is procurable, every offo t in made to laud him. It must be admitted that "Ten" has been Instrumental In making some deals that have helped the club Im? mensely. The only way to get a winner Is to keep hustling. The most consistent Winner In major league ball Is Connie Mack. lie always has a troublesomo club and at a cost that innltes other clubs look ridiculous. If Garry Herr? mann of Cincinnati hud a manager of Mack'-, ability, he could easily afford to pay him $'20,000 per annum, und Muck would earn it THE ROUNDUP COLUMN. Willio West Tells About the Brond Wicks Boauty Show. Sonic one bus figured it mit thnt n baseball player must weigh between 150 and 100 pounds. A player who weighs less than 100 pounds cannot stund the pa.e tor any length of time if he plays the game regularly, and one who weighs more than 100 pounds l.i Invariably too slow to play the game. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, and there are heavy weights wdio are as fast as If they were carrying fifty pounds less about than they are. New York light fans went to it beauty show a few nights ago. They put up ] Broad's wicks has chinese a childish MOUTH SniL-E VlD" E\ROAD'5 v/ick 5 tap eye . , dreamy eye UltOAD AN 1> WICKS AT CLOSB IIANOK. their money (as club members) to see Kid Broad and Allle Wicks, lute of England, pummel each other in an opera bouffc combat. It all happened at the Bbarkoy A. ('. When the crowd hud recovered from the sight of the two faces that Broad and Wicks displayed, the rolxup be? gan. The principal weapons used In the "light" were words, words and more words. "Yer Imidin', you fat Englishman,! yer holdln' me arms!" yelled Broad, and It was up to Wicks to bewilder, Broad again. "Aye, ye Chawntilly pippin,,'ow d' HI i 'old .miiiV Bloom e' tibble toff, lilts' ypu'sc 'oldin' 'nrd, baud not Hi," was the way Wicks put Broad on Queer street again. Wicks' accent struck Broad on the ; point of the Jaw, and he was counted out then and there. WUks Is a typical British boxer. For years he traveled through the In- j tcrlor towns nnd cities of England boxing with all comers. Every show In that country Is followed by pugilists. They have a small tent, charge admis? sion and offer a cash prise to the man who will go three rounds and have the belter of the boxing. At every large turf event scores of these showing pugs pitch their canvas along the roads leading to the courses. They always are, with the exception of the seller of "American home made pies," the main attraction for the labor? ing man. At Havana, Cuba, recently, 'JO.000 people witnessed the deciding game for the championship of Cuba. The Ai inciidares won the $5,000 prize und the championship of the island.

The walls of the White House were i not painted last year. The experiment of washing with a highly recommend? ed preparation was made This was unsuccessful, as the wash seems to' have cracked the paint and left the I walls lu ban shape generally wherever It was applied.
