S. ABELL & CO., Sun Iron Building, 27 Baltimore, Mj. H®dlan|. A WOMAN ON BASE BALL. I nee by the newspapers that rome base ball nine is having considerable difficulty in finding some one to catch or pitch, or do something or other in its games. I don't wonder a bit. If the man the? want has to submit to anything like tbs rough and tumble performance I saw the other day on the Polo Grounds, he will need mote than his salary to pay the doctors for i sparing him. I accepted Mr. Diogenes’ invitation to see wht he called “the beauties of the national game." It. was a broiling hot day, but Mr. D. said the gime would be hot in proportion, so we started. It was the fin t time I bad aver seen base ball played. It will be the lat. What I saw ccnfiims me in the belief that men's ideas of sport are inexplicable on any theory exopt temporary insanity. I had heard of people who enjoyed getting into fights because they bad the fun of getting all smashed to pieces. I didn't believe it, however, until I saw a base ball game. Then I was convinced. I should think there must have been as many as 5,000 people besides Mr. D. and mytelf, looking on at the eighteen wild men wbo gyrated abou> the ball grounds. A great many in the throng were ladies, and, to my amusement, they seemed to enjoy what they saw. As we took our'seats I saw a man throw a round object with all hie might and main at a mao who held something like a cart-rung in bis hand. The missile came so close to the cart-rung man's head, that as he dodged it the man who stood right behind him, and another person who stood right at the second man's heels, ducked their heads in unison with the man with the cart-rung to escape be ing hit. The missile finally struck the side of the grand stand with a noise like the explosion of a cannon. Nobody seemed surprised. Mr. D explained that the missile was a ball, and that what I thought was a cart rung was not a cart-rung, but a bat. He said the men always thiew the ball like that in the hope that the "striker” could not fait it with the bat. I examined the man with the bat critically. He didn't look a bit like a labor agitator, much lesa a striker. I told Mr. D so. He laugh ed and said that that was a technical name only. The man who stood behind the bat had a cage built around bis head, and wore thick gloves. The man behind him also had bis cranium inclosed in wire. He jumped up and down and watched the man who hurled the ball, and the ball itself, as if he considered himself in imminent danger of being made a target. I asked Mr. D. about the onges. “Oh," said ha, “that’s part of the outfit. Formerly they didn’t wear those masks, but cn one or two occasions the striker, in hitting at the bail, brought the hat accident ally in collision with the catcher's head. The shook split the bat. The captain of (he nine complained, after this bed happened several times, that bats were too expensive to be turned into kindling wood in that way. The catcher objected too. He eaid he couldn't afford to have a headache during a match. To satisfy both tdayerstle masks were adopted All the 'iamage l..at an accomplished ba’sman Can hope to inflict upon the the 0) po'ite nine is to smash the mask to pieces. While Mr. D. was talking the stiiker hit the ball. It shot upward as if fired from a gun, ard the man who bit it ran aw ay aa fast as his legs could carry him. Two other men who had been standing at dilierent points watching h : m fol owed his ex ample. The crowd began to yell until I was nearly deaf. The ball dropped like a meteor toward a man who stood with his eyes turned sky ward. It went into hia hands with a errifio whack, and he promptly let go of it. The crowd yelled in deris ion. The man yelled too. Then he seized his left wrist with his right hand, and whirled round and round, howling like an Indian. Next he doubled up as if he had cramps, and finally he fell down flat on the ground and lay there. Another man rushed out, yelling like mad, p'cked up the ball and hurled it to the man with the cage and gloves. Tbe man who was frantically running toward him tripped, fell flat on his chest, and shot along the ground for a distance of two yards like a boy coasting on a sled. He raised his hand during this remarkable jonrney, and brought it down with a whack on a white square at tbe feet of the man with the cage and gloves. The latter planted his heel on the hand with great accuracy of aim. At the same time he caught the ball, sat down with great emphasis and enthusiasm on the back of the prostrate man, gave him a terrible thump in the ribs with the ball, and then held tbe ball in the air and shouted : “Judgment.” “Not out," yelled the other man with a mask. Instantly the ) lace echoed with hisses, and the crowd shouted, "Oh, put him out." "Teach him the rules.” “O'Reilly, yen are N G." and other mysterious saluta tions. Tbe man with the ma’k didn’t neem in 'he least distuibed by this deluge of at use. He only laughed. “Oh, that's nothing,” said Mr. D. “He's only the umpire. That's part of the peiquisites ol bis position. He's used to it. Out West they sometimes dance all over tbe umpire. It makes him impartial, and prevents him from going to sleep. It also enlivens the game immensely.” Human who made a sliding pond if tbe dirt get up with his uniform tom at both knees, and spent several minutes pressing bis chest and gasp ing for breath. Eight men ably as slated him by congratulating him simultaneously. They shook his bands until the last small remnant of breath was quite gone out of him, and then sat him down and waited with affectionate anxiety till his lungs began very slowly to inflate again. As soon as he could speak he said weakly : “By gracious, that home run was a close shave for us.” Tbe man who bad gyrated, and bowled, and doubled up,and tumbled over began to shov some signs of re turning lifs. Two players went out and (icked him up. They found that the first joint of one of h s fingers was broken. Nobody appeared to pay much attention to it. Another man took his place and stood out in the field, inviting sunstroke with calm in difference. The game went on much as before. Once the striker hit the ball, and it shot backward over hia head and hit the tall white hat of a man who was sitting on the broad seats. Tbe umpire shouted "Fonl," the crowd shouted “Shoot the hat,” and the man made some brief reinmk that was lost in the uproar. Incidento of this kind and liberal abuse of the man who was described as the umpire filled up two hours of time, and then tbe game stopped abruptly, tbe umpire retired amid a storm of hisses and the crowd dispersed. I looked in the paper the next, day to see how it a ruck the news paper men. I saw that the "home team was beaten by a score of 5 to 3. Moffett had bis fii.ger broken in muf fing a fly." There was not a line about the other exciting incidents, ex cepting where one man, in throwing a ball to another, hit him in the stomach. That was down on (h --scoie as "an error in the play." Mr. D. explained (hat the many tumbles and other things we saw were so com mon in the noble game that no notiie was taken of them in the papers, un less some one happened to be serious ly injiiied. Mr. D. thought it was rare fun. If I ever catch hts hopeful son play ing base ball, 111 thrash him. Mrs. Diogenes. No Grease for Him. —" When G eeoe her knees—Greece her knsee —Greece her knees," stammered an ■ smhairased schoolboy, forgetting tbe next line of his recitation “There is no occasion to g'ease anybody’s knees,” shouted his teacher. “Go and study your piece." Neither is there occasion to grease your hair. Parker’s Hair Balsam is all the dress ing you want. Restores the original gloss and color to gray and faded hair. Does not soil the linen ; not a dye ; goed for the scalp; prevents falling out. Counting the probable production ol uncivilized countries, we reach a total production in the world of about 385,000,000 of metric tons of coal and lignite. It is stated that the product of coal in New Mexico last year amount ed to 117,745 tons. TRULY TIMELY. I For the Henson is Just Right for Such a Trip as Outlined — Very Interesting Details of Sep- 1 tember’s Series of Grand Excursions. The gram] excursions eastward an nounced for September by the Balti more and Ohio are attracting wide spread attention, and it is not strange that such should be the case, as no more attractive tiip has been offered for years. In the way of rates the programme is particularly enticing, as it is very rarely indeed nowaday! that a reduction on tickets ia con sented to, down to so low a figure as half fare, or one regular fare for the round trip, thus taking in the enorm ous territory covered by the B & 0. system, of which Chicago, Columbus, St. Louis, Louisville, Cincinnati and P ttsburg are important centres. Every preparation is being made in the matter of oars, dining accommo dations and the like, and the rxcor sious will be remarkable for complete and thorough facilities to insure ab sonoe of crowding and the perfect comfort of all. Magnificent new par lor and sleeping cars will be run thiongh without change, elegant dm ing cars provided and new dav coach es in abundance. I’.om Baltimore and Washington txten ive facilities will be offered for the continuous en joyment of the excursionists. Two lin“8 of steamers will be on from Washington to Old Point Comfort, Fortress Monroe and Norfolk, with the fare not exceeding one dollar and a-half for the round trip. The fa mous Bay Line of gteamers from Bal timore to the points named will afford ample accommodation on superb ves sels lighted with electricity. The noted Hyi iea Hotel at Old Point never looked more attractive than now, with hundreds of merry bathers tumbling about in the surf. Fortress Monroe is but a few steps from the Intel and open to tourists, as are all the many pi ces of great historic in terest within easy reach on the P n insula, so celebrated in the annals o' the war : The Soldiers’ Home, Hampton School, Hampton Church and too many other points to mention, while a brief steamboat ride lands the tourist in Norfolk, Portsmouth and other Virginia centres of interest. Making (he trip from either Wash ington or Baltimore one night and back the next, the excursionist has the whole day at the seashore. From Baltimore or Washington it is only a little over two hours' ride to Harp er's Ferry, the most noted spot per haps among all the historic centres on the Potomac. The lovely river is followed a greater portion of the dis tance, and at the Ferry one stands at the intersection of three States—Vir ginia, West Virginia and Marvland —all replete with memorable recol lections. John Brown’d old fort slip stands, so do ruins of the old arsenal, Jiffersjn Rock, etc., etc. The round trip costs but about a dollar and a half, and the money well spent. Another in expensive trip, and a delightful one, too, is that from Washington down the P. tomac, skirted by historic shores, to Moui tVerion. From Baltimore and Washington special .fast excursio; trains will be run to the wonderlul Luray Cavern’s of Virginia, uuques tiouably greatly superior to any other known subterrneau chambers The fare, three fifty for the -round trip, including admission to the cav erns. In addition, there will be short steamboat excursions down the Chesapeake B<y, with as low a rate as fPty cents for the round trip/, and in fact no end of pleasure to be com manded at practically nominal figures. From Baltimore to Washington and return, or Washington to Balti more and return, the round trip will only be a dollar twenty, with trains at least every hour, and often hardly more than a quarter of hour apart. The distance is but forty miles, and B. &0. trains make it in fifty min utes, some of them, and others in one hour. This enables frequent visits from one city to the other, and excur sionists who prefer may make their headquarters in Washington, where there are hotel accommodations for a great multitude. Baltimore is also exceedingly well provided with hotels and in either city the regular rates will be strictly adhered to. Tnose who contemplate securing sleeping car accommodations en route will do well to write to B. & O. agents to this end, also as regards any informa -1 tion which may be desired. The $1.50 per annum—in advance. WHOLE NUMBER, 620 preparations for the grand Oriole fes tival in Baltimore are being pushed forward with great energy and upon a hitherto unprecedented scale. The mystic pageant on the night of Sept. 13th will itself be worth a journey vfa thousand milts or more to wit ness, Nothing approaching it in ex tent and grandeur was ever before attempted in the world. All three of the carnival nights will be strikingly brilliant, as the programme ie replete with novel feature!. The Electric Wonders of the Age, Hon. S. S. Cox, in the annual ad dress delivered before the Indiana Atbury University, at Qreeneastle, on the 19 th ult., said ; ‘‘The dectric monograph transmits messages in the original handwriting. The hektograph multiplies your epistles ; the telephone enables peo ple to make contracts through an orifice; but a4 there ie no witness, pbo'ograpby comes in and records the shadow of the sound curves in vcwels and consonants. "Electricity is an element elusive and subtle, yet it is stored in a box and imprisoned in a metal to be used at pleasure for portraiture, sound, light or power, I have seen an org in in Berlin played by electricity, but this is simple compared with other experiments. la it not a marvel that we can telegraph flora a moving rail road car or the speeding steamship.
