Abeken is working faithfully for the bout.

Graw previously, but it did not take the
Baltimore man long to tind out that he
had not signed with Pittsburg. He of

Players' Association was sent for his

Manager Donovan of the St. Ixntls Ilase

fact that Catcher John Itynn. late of Bos

Dayton, O..'toiin, had alsj sign.cl contract 4
with the St. lyiiii.s club.
Tlie acquisition of Rreltcnsteln is a wel

, that he was saving Iiltnif for future rcfer
! ence while ht-re. Cincinnati is an odd town
In a baseball way. Players, patrons, crit
ics et al. have gut the game down to a
line science. They regard it simply an a
lusinets. It is a matter of bread and but
ter and dollars and cents with them. The
newspapers there have caused the player to
be mote concerned about the holding if his
job timn playing the game of baseball. Any
111:111 afraid of his job never amounts to it
hill of Ii. ans. When a man works simply
te hold his job It Is high time he was pre
vented lrom holding it. But that Is how
they work ill Cincinnati.

out of I1I3 ttpoitoire in St. Iniis. He has

There never was a gamer, harder working
player titan iireltenstein was In the old
days when lie had eight amateurs back of
him. He must be so again.
isriitenstein never lost his speed. Ills
curve ball grew narrow of late years. Last
seaicn his bender was not six inches wide,
ll is said he was not taking chances with
his arm, making it break wide or quick.
In the- fall ol Isiii Hreite-nstcin was so,d by
St. Louis to the Cincinnati club lor Ss.w).
H.s recent release probably did not cost St.
Louis very tiuch. Bieltelisteiu was born
anil reared around Glasgow and St. Louis

His uisiory Is too well known to bear re
capitulation. He pitched lor tne Home Coiii

MANAGER OF GIAXTS IS. ACTIVE.
Dnvls Is Sow In the West to Corral
(llil and Xeir Player.
New York. March 29. "Instead of our
pitching Htaff being weakened this year,"
said Secretary Knowles of the New York
Baseball Club Wednesday, we are strength
ening ittgradually with youm; material who
will work hard from the start to win
Mr. Knowles made the announcement that
Manager George Davis, who is now In Chi
cago, nan succeeded In signing C. B. Fisher,
the star. pitcher of the Chicago American
League Club last year. Fisher won more
than two-thirds of his games last year, and,
although his average of winning games was
not iiulte up tuMhat of Waddeli, or two or
three of the others. hi3 ability in the box,
together with his record on the field, and
at the bat marked him as the most valuable
pitcher in the American League. Fisher is
young in the game, and just the kind of a
man New York needs valuable now as well
as in the years to come. The pitching staff
of the giants up to date is composed of
Fisher, Matthcwson. Taylor and Doheny.
The deal with Mercer has not yet been de
clared off. He may sign with New York,
but he will not receive the salary he has
been asking, which is considered exorbitant.
Mercer is likely to lower his rates. Man
ager Davis will confer with both Carrlck
and Hawley before returning from the
West, and, should he fall to sign them, he
ha.o been Instructed to take a couple of
other pitchers In the West that the New
York club has been In communication with
the past few weeks.
Duke Farrell. the Brooklyn catcher, has
reported in Brooklyn for duty. He looks to
bo in the best of health and snvs he will
be In condition in a few weeks. Farrell
never had any intention of quitting Brook
lyn, and he will do his utmost to remain
in his old position behind the hat. There
was talk of plhclng Farrell on llrst base
luring Jennings's happy days at Cornell,
where he will coach the Ithacans until
about June 20.
"My days at first are past." said Farrell,
AVedncsdav. "and catching is good enough
for me.' It is a eate of rood man in goo.i
place. Farrell fills the bill.
Zlmmer's return to the game Is no more
than was epected. Harry Pullinm, secre
tary ot the Pittsburg club, induced lilm to
reconsider his retirement and Ximmsr will
be with the other members of the team
when they start fcr Hot Springs for early
practice on Saturday night.
Milwaukee dispatches continue to boom
"Pink" Hawley's stock. Haw Icy. it is re
ported, is in great demand by both
leagues. It Is alleged that he has an offer
or S.I.OOO from the American League, and
that Andrew Frccdman will have to moro
than match this offer. Hawley says he will
sign with the highest bidder. Davis is to
meet him to-morrow.

Men nSo would hold concessions, keep
gates and net ns police about League Park
want tn see Mr. Ilellbroner very badly.
Mr. Ilellbroner is not to be found. It is
hint.d that he has his nose deep on the
trail of Hub Wood, the catcher, who pliyed
with I'inclnrat! National and Chicago
American last season. Wood Is well re
membered in St. Louis as the man who
took a header Into the backstop one hot
Sunday in 1S33, when Zcke Wilson was
busy robbing lireitenstein of a game. He
Is a good hitter, a 'strong thrower and not
a had man nnvwhere. He lacks what a lot
of physically perfect players lack brains
to play the game with.
"If young Harper ban acquired a little
control he will be heard from in this
League," spake Joe Cjuinn. "I had him
with me in Cleveland In 1SS9. He has all
due curves, nice speed, can Held a lot and
Is more than an average pitcher with the
bat and on the bags. He can play in the
in or outfield In a pinch, too."
Mike Griffin is still on the reserve list of
the St. Louis club. In 1SSS Mike wan the
greatest center fielder In the world. To-day-he
Is more thoroughly forgotten than the
names of the brave sailors who went with
Hobson to sink the Meramec. Time is a
great wrecker of memory.
Ilurkctt does not like the new rules made
by the National League.
"That rule penalizing the pitcher with
only a hall for hitting a hatter Is a very
bad one." said the great hitter. "My word
on it. some of tho.-e pitchers will be bound
leg favt one3 off the batter's ribs this
season. You trust them to crimp a feliow
who has been hitting them. After you have
rapped a twlrler two or three times in a
game, he does not feel a bit kindly toward
you. He may be losing his grip in fast
company, as it were, jind. feeling a bit
desperate, may take to driving batters
ilway from tho nlute with fast balls sent
close to nerve centers. Now, when a bum
pitcher gets to doing this, what la the good
pitcher to do? Take a man like Nichols,
who never hit a batter. The men whom the
bad pitchers have been driving away from
tho plate will stand up to 'Kid,' knowing
that he will r.ot hit them. Consequently, he
will be hit far harder than .pitchers who
nro not at all his equals. In the course cf
time he wll' be obliged to lesort to hitting
men In order to maintain his effectiveness."
There were two things which operated to
drive Cv Young into th-j American Lsague,"
spoke Rob Wmlace. "One was that he daPi
not like warm weather, such as we have nil
summer In SL Louis. Cy Is a great cold
weather man. He will get just what suits
him In Boston. Another was that new rule
which allows pitchers to hit a batter .with I
a pitched ball wltn tne sngnt penalty m
having a ball called on them. Cy never
would soak a hitter. He paw that this ruli
would give those pitchers who made a prac
tice of hitting batters several shades the
best of it. So he went to th? American,
where such rules are not In force. Yon may
have observed that he did hot sign any con
tract until the Ameriacn League decided
not to tamper with the old rules. Then Cv
"This will be a great season for Burkett."
spake Willie Sudhoff. "I look for him to
break all batting records. You see three or
four great third basemen have left the Na-tlonal-McGraw,
Collins and William" have
gone. These men were wonders on bunts
and balls hit toward third. Such hitting Is
jce's Haglan. As a matter of fact, the
only really high-class third baseman left in
the Le-nguc Is Wallace. McGraw. Collins.

was voted too young and too light. Since

Donovan likes th'e new hit by pitcher
rule about as well as Burkett did. "It Is a
very bad rule." sdith the manager. "I as
sure you being hit once good nnd plenty is
enough to ruin any batter man as a batter.
Look at Billy Nash. Fraser McGee nailed
him once. In the prime of his career and
stopped him for all time. Then look nt Wal
lace. Fraser hit him on the cheek bone and
laid him out. If Wallace was not a man
of wonderful nerve he would have gone
Nash's way. Luckily, he was a younger
and stronger man. As It was, that lick
hurt his hattlng'ov'er fifty pointy. He never
got back into his old confident way of step

field, as he u?ed to do. You know no one
hits them cleaner or harder, but they go
so nlcrty at the second baseman and center
fielder. I have great fear about the work

Dread of Smallpox.
A few cases ot smallpox In a large city
will start a scare that will fill the news
papers and cause a wave of apprehension,
to pass over the entire country. It Is a dis
ease that people shun with horror and
loathing, yet here In our own State there
Is a malady far worse, far more fatal, and
yet people Ignore it. Heart disease Is. ro
Insidious, so subtle In its coming, that fesv
people realize they have it until the strokes
come? and they are beyond all aid.- Tha
symptoms of heart disease Itself are not
alarming, and the sufferer thinks he-has a
slight cold or a little rheumatism, or has
overworked, until at his business, in the
cars or at home, he drops dead.
Perhaps you arc a sufferer from heart
disease and have felt these symptoms with
out knowing what they meant. Perhaps
your heart flntters or palpitates, perhaps
you have shortness of breath, a pressed
feeling in the chest, choking sensation In
the throat, fainting spells, oizzlness, spots
before the eyes, bad turns, inability to lio
nn the- left side, sudden startlnz In sleen.
icold hands or feet, swelling of the ankles.
