Aside from the immense snort and national interest in baseball this season, caused bv the sprightly ball-playing aud tbe wonderful race for pennant honors and position, fortunes bare been made by the league dabs of the East, withstanding the elaboiate preparations *» le at the beginning of tho season and numerous difficulties that came subse quently, such as destraction by fire, every Eastern club will make both ends meet and make good money. The Boston Globe estimates that New York and Philadelphia will clear $70,000 or $75 000 each. Baltimore's net prof its will run aw*y up over $100,000. Brooklyn has done well, and Washington extremely so with a cheap team Boston Club backers will surely clear over Not 1 M $80,000 on t heir big in vest mont, with a good chance of getting bach the money they sunk In the New York Club in 1890. Outside of Chicago and Cincinnati, the Western clubs havo done very little and it is doubtful whether any of them have made $1,000. Thare is profit as wall as pleasure in the national game.

Huffy, of the Bostons, still continues to stand at tho head, with 481, Dalahaaty nod Thompsons being his nearest rivals. Hamilton's fine batting of late has placed him in the 400 class The Baltimore players are putting forth every effort to win tho pennant and, from their record thus tar in the West, if. Is onlv reasonable to suppose their effirts will be crowned with »no cess, It is nothing now for tho Orioles to put forth their best, efforts; it is what they have been doing all the sea son, and such earnest, faithful work on tlie part of any league toau la unprtc odented iu baseball history. Giant Tinman is now having great luck in bitting Ihe bail and it, is nothing unusual for him to line out five bite in a game. This he did In the first Cleveland game. Hughey Duffy loads ihe league in the number of base tilts and the total base hits soon d by one player. He also leads his team in the number of runs icored and is tied with Banuou fur first place iu the number of bases stolen. Hughey is therefore not a worthless man. Sporting Menu Nute«.

Billerica, Mass., Sept. 13.—On a re mote road in this place Duroy Foster, a respected citizen of Burlington, was held up and rubbed by highwaymen at an early hour in the morning. When assist ance was called und nn attempt was made to arrest the rol hers, Mr. Foster was shot through tho head and instantly killed. Mr. Foster was on his way home from Boston and left tlio train at Woburn in tending to walk homo to Burlington, four miles distant. Ho spoke with sev eral acquaintances in Woburn, and some say ho was seen in the company of tlireo strangers near u saloon, lie started on ids lonely walk at U o'clock, and about an hour later the tlireo men were seen to mount a covered express wagon and start over Burlington street after the traveler, »illouny or V Just as Mr. Foster reached Walker's bill, on tho outskirts of Burlington, ho noticed that a wagon was rapidly ap proaching from tho rear. Tlio moment tho vehicle reached him throe men leaped from it and cried, "Wo must have your money or your life!" "That pleases me," said Mr. Foster. "I haven't any money—nothing but a piece of tobacco. " "That won't do," said one of tho men. "We'll see what you've got in your clothe* anyway," and suiting tho action to his word went through the pockets of tho victim and found just $7.60. Alter warning their victim not to follow tho carriage the men drove on toward Bur lington. Foster followed on a run, and when he reached tlio homes of his neigh bors, Charles A. Nichols and Henry 1'. Cox, he told his story. The trio secured another team and started after the fugi tives. They wore not long in tracking them. Tho robbers' wagon was soon recogniz ed in tlio clear moonlight jogging along at a rato that certainly did not give the idea that they feared pursuit. Tho pur suers decided to come by a side road to this place, got a constable and bead them off. Accompanied by Constable Living ston, the party sot out again, armed with two revolvers and prepared to uso them if necessary. At Hoald's corner, about a mile below Billerica Center, a covered wagon was seen standing by tho side of the road a short distance up tho hill to ward Bedford. "That's t,ho team," *ald Foster. As they came nearer they saw a man standing at tho horse's head. Foster was loft in care of tho wagon, and tho consta ble stepped up to the young man who was holding tho horse, covering him with his revolver, and said, "Wo are after you. " Mint Through the Mend. Tho fellow made no reply, but when tho officer attempted to put on the brace lets ho yelled and struggled, and although Cox and Nichols came to his assistance they could not get the irons on. Foster drove the Cox horse up tho road a few rods, and just us ho did this a trio came running down from a ntghborlng house, ami calling out, " No you don't, no you don't!" opened fire with their revolv ers. The constable's weapon failed to re spond at the first attempt, but Cox fired several times, in tlio confusion the man they had captured escaped, and tlio trio jumped into their rig aud lashed their horses into a run. Foster, on tlio seat of the wagon, was struck by tho first volley and instantly killed. His horse started to run, and his lifeless body rolled to the ground, where it was found after tho fugitives had dis appeared. A bullet had entered tho base of the brain aud come out at tho nostril. As tlio robbers Hod they throw from tho wagon bogs of grain, harness and other articles, which, it was subsequently ascor tallied, had boon stolon from people In tills place. They evaded tho constable at Billerica Center by taking the back road toward Woburn. They wore traced through va rious towns and always on tho way to ward Boston. Tho only clow to them was tho "1*.
