Central's best work was in the third quarter, when Bingham carried the ball over the scrubs' line for a touch down. Coach Buyer's men showed more football knowledge, their tack ling and blocking being perfect. Cen tral's weak point was their inability to hold the ball. Roth.

It is the first time in a world series an Ath letic pitcher has retired under tire. From practically every viewpoint the Braves showed to better ad vantage than the champion. Par ticularly in hitting, Boston had first call. Dick Rudolph, Boston pitcher, is now in a class with Christy Ma thewson as the only pitchers to stay the full route against the Mackmen. After the tilt George Stallings, winning manager, said: "I told you we'd win, and we did. didn't we?" Manager Mack said: "The series is still young. Rudolph had lots of stuff and it was one of our bad days." The official figures are as fol- I lows: Attendance, 20,562; receipts, | $49,639; players' end, $26,805: each club's share, $8,935.05; national I commission's share, $4,963.90.

' \ Some Facts About Career of Evers Is the highest paid ball players In the world this year. Twelve years ago Evers was earning just $4 weekly. His com pensation for this season's work will far exceed $1,500 per week. He has already shared in the profits of four world's series. Has never played on a second division outfit and his club has always been away up in the fight. Although not the shortest, he was by far the smallest player that ever broke into the big league. He weighed but 105 pounds when he joined the Cubs twelve years ago and he weighs but 137 now. In his dozen years of big league conflict he has earned approxi mately $75,000. But for the fact that the era of high salaries started only live or six years ago, his earn ings would be considerably greater. To Evers more than to any other player must go the credit for twice snatching the pennant flag from the Giants. It was he who took advantage of the "bonehead" play that lost New York the champion ship <n 1908. His work in the Braves' infield caused the Giants' downfall this year.

"Everywoman" is of the manner of a "moral play;" "Every woman" might well be described s a modern allegorical play, In which all the characters are symbolical of various vices, conditions and virtues in the ab stract. "Everywoman" acts in two ca pacities with an audience, first it in structs. second It entertains. To every woman who listens to flattery and goes in quest of love, the play provides a timely and kindly warning. To every man there is an admonition to Judge every woman with kindness, for her faults are many.

It is powerful because true. Unlike 'The Lure' and sonie oth ers, it Is ont overdone.
