First Division For Griffith Says He Is Sure of Cincinnati Finishing Among the Select Four A Curiou# Wedding Pr«»ent. Among the Brass river tribes of West Africa when a young couple get man-led It Is the custom for the oldest member of the bride's family to pre sent the bride with a plot of ground six feet long. This Is for the grave of her family and herself when they die. The first member of the new family who dies Is burled about twenty feet below ground and the next one almost sixteen feet, and this goes on until all the family die and are burled. Th« grave holds them all, and this, they think, prevents them from being sep arated. This grewsome wedding pres ent is the one most valued iJy tho bride, the favorite native saying being, "When all other things ard gone this remains."

The oldest matliematic book in tlie world is believed to bo tlie "Papyrus Rhind" in the British tnuaeum, pro fessed to have been written by Ahmes, a scribe of King Ila-a-us, about the period between 2000 and 1700 B. C. ^ This "Papyrus Rhiud" was translated ! by Kiseniohr of Leipzig and It was found to contain a rule for making a square equal in area to a given circle. It was not put forth as an original dis covery, but as the trauscript of a treatise 500 years older still, which [ sends us back to approximately 2500 B. CI., when Egyptian mathematicians , solved, or thought they had solved, j the problem of squaring the circle. Th» DiUttanta Society. An interesting old organization which formerly existed in London—the Dilet tante society—originated with certain gentlemen who, having traveled in It aly, tried to encourage at home what they had enjoyed abroad.

When "Play Ball" Is sounded at Amusement Park Sunday next the machinery of one of the greatest city baseball leagues ever seen here will begin to move. The Danish Sociable Athletic Club team and the Marions will open the schedule at 1:45 o'clock and their game will be Immediately followed by a contest between the Puritan A. C. and the Lyceum P. C. Thus the schedule will start and end In league style. Officially appointed umpires will be on hand and everything about the league will be conducted in profes sional league style. A second pipeline waa hpM in the EVENING NEWS office lasFnTgftt" &} which a permanent organization, to be called the Perth Amboy City Baseball League, and for short, the "City League," was formed. The exceedingly large number of i^layers on hand from the various teams was gratifying to the promoters of the Idea; it only went to prove more conclusively the very evident success of the venture. ) Shortly after 8 o'clock the NEWS office was filled and Temporary Chairman Albert Q. Waters called the meeting to order. Mr. Waters was elected permanent president of the league, and Chris M. Wagner, an EVENING NEWS scribe, was chosen as secretary. By motion, a vote of thanks was accorded the EVENING NEWS for its Interest in the league and for the offering of a peaaint to the winning team. A sample copy of by-laws were read and discussed. It Is proposed to adopt by-laws similar to those under which the Industrial Baseball League operates. The following committee on by-laws was later ap pointed: Albert G. Waters, of the Nationals, chairman; John J. O'Toole, of the Marions; Marty O'Hara, of the Lyceums; John Lar son, of the D. S. A. C., and Vincent Reidy, of the Puritans. The duties of this body shall be to draw up suitable by-laws to govern the opera tions of the league. The committee will report at the meeting next Mon day night. The subject of using eligible play ers in the league was a warm one and developed considerable discus sion. It was suggested that each team file lists of players at once, which would Btand throughout the season. Some representatives want ed the list to consist of fifteen play ers and some wished twelve players. A secret ballot was cast, resulting in seven representatives voting for the twelve-man list and three for the fifteen-player list. With that a motion waa made and passed that each team submit a list of twelve players who will appear with that team throughout the season of the league. Each team will be permit ted to hold Its present players, whether or not they come from out of town, but hereafter no new play ers can be taken on from out of town. Neither will the transferring of players from one league team to another be permitted. Should a player withdraw his services from a league team he cannot Join another league nine, excepting that he may rejoin the club he has left. ' The lineups of the four teams appealing on a scheduled date must be filed with the secretary the Fri day afternoon or evening preceding the playing date. In the instance of the opening games to be played next Sunday, the lineups of the D. S. A. C., Marions, Puritans and Lyceums should be filed with the secretary not later than the coming Friday evening. That Is done to see that no ringers are used, that all players scheduled to appear are boni-lide members of the respective clubs and that the games may be given suita ble advertisement. Michael Dunn, Gus Kelly, William Fltzpatrick and James Martin, men who have done efficient work in the - umpiring line, were last night chos en to act as official umpires. There will be but one umpire for each game, so that the services of two will be required on a Sunday after noon. J. J. O'Toole and John Lar j son were named as a committee to i see the respective men chosen and Aevarn if they are willing to serve. TfctM league games will be played at Amnse^r i*ajk every Sunday afternoon, 8W™m I salon charg es to any part of the' jfcw'"la w twenty-flve cents and ten cents wii, be charged for ladles and children. There will be no extra charge for re served seats. The strictest kind ot order will be maintained over the seated sections of the park grounds, so as to make the games especially inviting to ladies. The five teami comprising the league have exten sive followlngs and these will be on hand from lime to lime to root litt their favorites. ALMANAC FOR THE WEEK.
