There not being room in the Gladstone parlors for those wishing to participate in the meeting tonight for the purpose of deciding what shall be done in relation to the proposed base ball and gun club tournament, notice is hereby given that said meeting will occur at the Opera rink and be called to order promptly at 8:30, such arrangement being made through the kindness of Mr. Winslow and Mr. Chas. Klaus. The Jamestown Cornet -band have offered their sendees and will play several numbers at the opening of the meeting. By order of A. KLAUS JR. CHAIRMAX. HOW THE MATTER PROGRESSES. The various committees appointed Sat urday night did considerable work yes terday and are understood to be ready to make a satisfactory report. They have found the project practicable and expect to have but little trouble in raising the necessary funds. The gentlemen having the matter in charge are all pushers and do not propose to see it drop. Nearly all who have been spoken to consider a sub scription in the light of an. investment that will pay a handsome return. There seems to be a diversity of opinion as to the scope of the proposed organization some believing a track should be laid out and racing included, others inclining to the opinion that such a course would entail an unwarrantable expense this year This matter will be discussed and settled tonight. At any rate the unanimous feel ing of all is, that the matter should be carried as far this year as possible. All interested in out door sport should make it a point to be present tonight.

The Porte is before the powers again with a brace of fresh requests, one being for permission to issue a loan of $25,000, 000 on the Egyptian and Cyprus tributes, and the other that the powers will nomin ate some candidate for the Bulgarian throne who will be acceptable to the Sobranje. Both requests are in the line of chronic helplessness -nrtiich has long been associated with Turkey. The puzzle in her finances is how she constantly man Ages, when apparently beyond the bottom of her cash and quite at the bottom of her credit, to hunt up some new article of value to pawn or some old one on which an additional mortgage is possible. With a billion dollars or so of debt, on which only fractional interest is paid, she was able not long ago to pledge some of her railways for money with which to" toy guns and ammunition. Now comes an other device, and the wonder is where it will all end. Perhaps she will begin soon to sell out some of her islands or outlying provinces if the powers will allow each other to buy them.—New York Times. Hard to See the Ball. I am surprised that the public do not know that it is a difficult thing to see a ball while facing the grand stand. The other day a ball was batted at Foutz while he was pitching and he dodged it. The crowd yelled "rats" and "coward." The fact is, Dave could hardly see the ball, not because it was necessarily swift,but be cause it was the same color as the grand stand which he was facing. Nearly every spectator has played ball only in an open field where,he had a horizon line, above which the ball could easily be seen against the sky. But in an inclosed field it is a difficult matter to see a ball, well black ened by use, in the infield, if it comes from the dark grand stand. It is this that causes so many of the mysterious muffs and misses which the public can see no excuse for.—Baseball Player in Globe-Democrat. Girded Tlieir I.oins and Skipped. "How is the work progressing in Da kota?" asked a Boston minister of a good brother who lives in Dakota at the Baptist' anniversaries the other day. "Well, I am getting along pretty well, but still it's rather discouraging," replied the Dakota man with an air of despond ency. "Isn't there any religious interest out there? Can't you awaken it? Or won't they come to church?i' "No, it isn't that. The first week I went there I had big congregations. One day ther^ were .ISO down on their knees weeping and praying. A man came in and said there were two detectives coming down the road and every blessed person got up and skipped."—Minneapolis Jour nal. Vootblack* Give Rain Checks. A reporter dropped into a prominent hotel to have his boots polished. The weather was decidedly threatening at the time, and as he left the chair he said: "It is almost certain to rain, and I shall lose my elegant ten cent shine." "Oh, we'll fix that all right," said the frescoer. "I'll give you a rain check, and if you lose your shine come back this afternoon and I will give you another." —Detroit Free Press. For Students of Theology. The Waterbury American thinks that theological students should be required to serve an apprenticeship in a newspaper office. They would there learn what to leave out of their sermons, as well as catch the newspaper spirit, which divines what people can be most effectively talked to about at a particular time what sub ject is least likely to put them to sleep, and how to treat a sleepy subject awaken iugly.
