Milh All His I'orlffoiir Year lie Hit a (ireat Kve. With all of his forty-four years as a handicap. Anson Is one of the hardest men in the profession for a pitcher to strike out. It is not anything minimi for the pitcher 10 secure two called strikes on the veteran und work up the spectators Into supplications of "Strike him out!" an event which never fails to give the most unbounded delight to the rooters even on the Chicago ground. Probably the pleasure of it is ull the more acute because It is so rare, for with even a handicap of two strikes it is probably 29 to 1 that the old matt doesn't get fooled on the third. There are but two batsmen in the big league who can not be deceived by a pitcher. One is Anson, and the other Is Tlernan. When Anson leaves the diamond, it will not be the failure of his. "good eye" which compels It. but the stiffening of his muscles and Joints. His batting und lieldlng are wonderfully preserved, lUt his running Is each succeeding year more and more fashioned after the trot of a milk cow going home to her calf at eventide. There ae but a few of them left these old-time heroes of the diamond. Next to Anson comes Roger Connor. He has not maintained his former prowess so well as the Chicago man, nor has he been so long In set vice. But he is look ed upon as one of the old stars who must soon pass Into private life. Every year a report gets out that It Is Roger's last season In base ball. The rumor Is Just as regularly denied. Successful base ball players seldom retire volun lui lly. Waid was an exception, and his friends will tell you thut t: has regret ted il. The lull lc Id has an allraclioli to those who make their llvintf ther.on whlcli few are ever able to shake off. They will prate ubout the slavery of a ball player's life and talk about the des potism of the magnates, but when they are emancipated and delivered from the despotic tyrants they go out Into their freedom with many regrets and long ings for the life which has gone by. O. P. CAY 1.0 It. DIAMOND DUST. Meuney anil Massey fattened their bat ting averages. Lezotte made two singles, a double and a triple In the llrst game. O'Brien's one error cost a run, but he ran be pardoned for that. Ho played a good game. The tirst game In Wllkes-Barre this af ternoon will be culled at 2.15 o'clock. Oil Ion will pitch the llrst game and Lovutt the second. llVovidenco here tomorrow Thursday and Friday. The season closes with Hie Sprlngtleld series here Saturday, Monday und Tuesday. Baltimore MeOniw's batting average for the llrst six gumes it .1M11. It Is a mar velous record for a tnuu who has been sick and out of the gume the whole season. tioeckel has creuted the Impression th.it lie Is u liuse bull player. The only thing tlie bleachers have against him is that be wears his hair too long and rarlres his hat on the back of his coco. But he "plays der game." "Jack" Chapman Is quoted in the New York Sun us saying that Lezotte and Belts are fast enough for the big leugue. They lire If "Jack" can get a linger In a deal to druft or buy them and If he doesn't loso anything by it. Foxey old Jack. Lajoie, without fuss or feathers, was deeply in the game, both at the bat and in the lield. If that young man keeps his head within the eoullncs of his hut band und scratches a few of the Joys of this sporting town he will have a promising future. Philadelphia Inquirer. Cuplaln Duffy, of the Bostons, Thursday made four hits for a total of 12 bases, getting two home runs, a triple and a sin gle. This record bus been beaten only once. Delchanty made a total of 17 buses on July and a total of 12 bases oil An. gust 17. By a unanimous mail vote of the Na tional leugue, the form of players' con tracts for next year will be changed, so as to run from April M to October 1.1. in stead of front April 1 to October 1.

A writer in Bicycling News suys: "I atu no lover of the decoctions which are generally, nowadays, mis-named "temperance- drinks," and which are often foisted upon the unsuspecting cyclist. My unbelief has not been weakened by the case of a friend, who, last week, suffered u very severe and, for a time, almost dangerous Illness through imrtalting of a much adver tised alleged beverage which posseses tlie virtue of being iion-alcoholh:. Per sonally, if drink must be taken, 1 pre fer a draught of Kood ale, a,nd if cer tain people like to make themselves Idiots on it at mure or less frequent Intervals, 1 fail to see that thut Is any reason why I should be condemned 10 the various varieties of "tizzy drinks," which now abound. If the gentlemen who with all good intentions, no doubt preaih teetoalisiu as essential to the salvation of both soul and body, would instead, preach temperance, and de vote some of iheir energies to the com pulsory provision of good ule Instead of tlie heterogeneous mixtures which are unfortunately too plentiful, they would he doing; a (treat deal more good und their woek would be much more effec tive.

SCRANT0NS VICTORY WAS EASY Electric City Athletes Won Ncvcu of the Tea Event. .Kiritiug Sprinting Knees and Tests of StrenKh-Suui mary of the Ten Events. Special to the Scranton Tribune. Carbondale, Sept. 7. The first an nual field day between Carbondale and Scranton was a decided success. The day was perfect for any kind of ath letic exercises, and while it was not too cool to keep the spectators from enjoy ing themselves the heat was not such that the contestants suffered. The number of people wln witnessed the sports was quite large and all seemed to bo well pleased with the events. They were good-natured, too, and took the delays which occurred in the best of humor. The different events were nil hotly contested and while we fulled to come out on top It was easy to see that there Is plenty of good material In our boys which will come out with proper train ing. This was especially marked In putting the shot, throwing the hammer and In high jumping, when a know ledge of how to do each properly would probably brought lis out victorious. Keese, of Scranton. deserves especial credit for his work, winning the 440 yard dash in 59 2-5 seconds. He also came iu tlrst in his quarter In the relay race, ilooney, for Carbondale, showed up In good form and won much praise. SOMF. EXCITING EVENTS. The most exciting events of the day Were the 100, 220 und 440 yard dashes and the relay race. In the 100 yard dash Mooney. of Cur boiidule, and Reese and Tropp of Scran ton, started. All the men 81 rived hard to reach the line und Mooney finally broke the string some feet in the lead of Reese. It would have been closer but that Reese and Tropp collided In the start and thus lost them some time. The time in this was, 10 4-.".. In the 220 yard dash Qiiliinnii and Reese, of Scramoti, und ISctidell and N'oalon, of Carbondale, started. The race was evidently between Reese and Uendall, the former finally forging ahead and winning In 27 seconds. Probably the prettiest race of the day was the 440 yard dash. Reese and Tropp entered for Scranton and Kirk wood and Hockcnlierry for Carbondale. Hockenberry and Reese were the fav orites and these two fought it out until the very finish when Keese won by a small margin. Hockenberry made a plucky race of It and pushed Keese hard. Time 59 2-5. In the relay race Scranton was loft tn tho cold. The following were the entries who ran the restiectlve quar ters: Scranton Reese, Tropp, Olbbs, Quinnan. Carbondale Oendall, Moo ney, Klrkwood, Hockenberry. Keese won the llrst quarter, but Mooney came In so far ahead In the second quartet thut Scranton had no chance. The time was 4.12'.
