Moiioy for Base-Ball.
A correspondent has made the follow ing rough estimate of the expenses at tending the eight professional ball clubs in the country.

It must be too small by at least $18,000 in the first item, for one' thing, for salaries paid to base-ball players must average 1,500. One gets $1,600 or $'-000, another $2,500. Some of them pet $3,000 a season. Some of the best editorial writers in New York do not command more. The time has been when even a higher ligure wou'd have expressed that average, but the law of .demand and supply appears to be gradually equalizing th'trrs, even in" ase-ball. Our correspondent proba bly underestimates Lie aggregate xpcn diture for the League; the truth proba bly would be $200,0U) instead of 155,700. But even that $200,000 represents only one association. There are others. In the association of which the Phila delphia Athletic are members, that club is said to have expended or, which is for our purpose practically the same thing, its backers have expended for it the sum of $:4,0U0 this year, and yet it is said the club bas cleared a profit of $70,000. This surprising statement be comes possible, in the light of 6uch crowd as that famous club ha3 drawn in its encounters with other noted clubs in some of the cities, 18,000 being in at tendance, f r example, to see one game at St. Louis, representing $9,000 for that one game, while gatherings of 10, 000 have been noted in that and other cities. Probably $250,000 would be an underestimate of the total expenditures by the association and individuals that back up the various professional nines in the three association of 1883. But that large expenditure represents only ono side of the question. On the other sido are fie unknown suras that have been paid out by the b:ise-b;ill lov ing public for the privilege of witnessing the 370 games. That base-ball "pays'' financially is indicated by the cont'nua tion of the clubs and the widespread public interest in thi subject If a quarter of a million has bee;i paid out in keeping up the clubs of 1883, a con siderable larger sum has been paid by the spectators of the games. Six hun dred thousand dollars would perhaps not bo an overrs imate of the total ex penditures for l a e l all thin ear. Be tides tho 8U2 League games, at fifty cents admission, the e!u';s wind up the season wlh a series of half price "exhi bition" games. .The total e penditure do doubt exceeds $600,000. llurlj'ord (Conn.)

Many per on do not b.lievo that cat can take disease from a human be ing, but this cat d d it most undoubted lyfand was very seriously ill for more than a week. It began by her insisting on visiting the patient, her yuung mi-stress, though the latter was too ill to notice the little animal lying on the bed, . and wlen at last Becky was forcibly driven from her post, it was too late, for customary symptoms of the disease plainly showed themselves. She was taken violently sick, and her throat and tnnnrim hi'enm Ko Inllamed that' she could uot swallow (no ono thought to find out whether there was a rash under her fur), but at all events she grew thinner every day, a she could neither eat nor drink, and the physician in at tendance prescribed for her an eay death by chloroform. However, some one suggested putting hot poultices on her throat, as this treatment gave great relief to the human patient, andaccord inrlv flax seel meal was applied, Sometimes it seemed as if the poultice was hot enough to scald her, but she bcro the heat bravely, evidently Know inrr what it was for. t i . . Ono morning, the . person who took charge of the poultices was awakened before liirht bv puss, who, afLer "claw ing" her vigorously, went to the table under the ca-burner where the linseed was ho:iU' ;ir:d sat looking up wist- Star .
