It is only natural that such clever, versatile

Stone should join the ranks of exclusive Victor
artists. And for their first number they have
sung the funny "Travel, Travel Little Star",
which is scoring a big success in their produc?
tion, "The Old Town".
. This Victor Record is a perfect copy of their voices and
mannerisms, and can be heard at any Victor dealer's. Ask

George Cowan also got his In the

we haven't got a likely brace of catch?
ers.
.And, folks, take youv hat off to h'g
Hall. lie came here, paying his own
way, went into the box yesterday and
pitched a great game, allowing but
two hits in his three innings. And not
a run would have resulted if there had
been clean fielding behind hi in.
Don't want to be hard on Clauser,
but he doesn't look like league timber
after yesterday's showing. Six errors
are quite a bunch to have in one
game, and there could have been sev?
eral more charged but that the leniency
of those scoring made allowances.
It may be that the boy Is suffering
from stage fright. If he is, he wants
to get over it.
I would like to sec Sullivan try
Baker at short. Martin at second and
Pfahler at third.
Bv the way, Pfahler is going to play
third to-day if yesterday's arrange?
ment holds.
Farrell's line-up will be about the
K?me.
McCabe is sore all over, and that's
why he has not shown up to such good
advantage.
Notice the way that boy Raker is
hitting this season. He Isn't bragging
about himself as a sticker, but Is will?
ing to wager that he does a great deal
better than he did last season.
We came pretty nearly getting Dan?
ny Kauft, only he is homesick and
wouldn't stop in Richmond.
Pretty good showing for only two
games together, and it is going to bo
even better to-day.
