Baseball be said is a business with

I have the same as every man attends to
his business If I win all right that is
what I am trying to do and if I lose 1
am sorry but it cant be helped for I
have done the best I can That is the
way every ball player looks at It They
arc trying to win all the time and if
they dont why It ia not their fault
Both teams cant win There has to be
a loser and I repeat In the long run
it is the team that has the bad breaks
that loses the game

I THEY PLAY BALL IN IDAHO I
Special to The HeraldRepublican
Paris Idaho Dec 4on November
25 the Fielding academy or this city
met the Weber Stake academy of Og
den at basketball and won by the de
cisive score or 43 to 31 In view of
the fact that articles have been pub
lished at the dictation of the Visiting
team grossly misrepresenting the game
It is no more than right that the play
be stated as it occurred
It Is true that the Ogden boys played
a more open field game and on some
occasions did some brilliant passing
but when it came to basket throwing
they were not in It with the academy
boys The visitors as they admit
could not solve the style of play
adopted by the Fielding boys The
visitors also say that practically e
ery point scored by Fielding was made
on a foul called on the Weber boys
That this assertion is unjust And un
founded will ba seen by the official
score taken from the scorers book
whereby It will be seen that throwing
out the points on free throws Fielding
is still four points in the lead having
made fifteen field goals against thir
teen for Weber
The Ogden boys came up to Paris
to play a practice game with a bunch
of kids H They mat however a class
of kids a little too old at the game
for them

FAST FIVE OF FIELDING ACADEMY
RECORD YEAR FOR I
BROKEN RECORDS
IrishAmerican Athletes An
nex Many New Ones
Lunghi a Wonder
New York Dec 4The season recent
ly closed will furnish a large page in the
annals of athletic history Inasmuch a
more worlds records have been broken
during the year on the cinder path and
field than has been the case since ama
teur sport was put on the healthy basis it
now enjoys
On September 15 contingent of Irish
American athletes Journeyed to Montreal
to compete in the Canadian champion
ships While several came back with
Canuck titles Lunghi returned with a
worlds record at his belt He won the
halfmile run from Frank Riley in a
sensational finish in 152 45 clipping
threefifths of a second off KJlpatrlcks
mark
A quartet of IrishAmerican Athletic
club Quartermilers astonished the ath
letic world on September 24 at the fall
games of the New York Athletic club
by setting a new worlds record In the
onemile relay race Charles Caasassa
Mel Sheppard Jim Rosenberger arid
Yank Robbins running in the order
named fairly flew over the mllllin
3JB 96 beating the former record of
331 35 held jointly by the New York
Athletic club team Long Wefers Burke
and Lyons in 1898 and the Harvard team
Shick Lightner Willis and Rust in
1998 This was really one of the surprises
of the year for it must be considered
that each of these athletes traveled the
quarter mile in less than 51 seconds
Five Records Go
A wholesale slaughter of records was
enacted at Celtic park on October 10 in
which five worlds records fell by the
wayside and a new American record was
established Sheridan was the hero of
the day surpassing his best previous
worlds record with the discus Olympian
style and displacing Jim Mitcnel as
American king with the 42pound stone
Martin scaled the steel saucer 142 feet
104 inches exceeding his former record of
140 feet 5 inches made at Pastime Oval
on October 4 1908 After forsaking the
43pound stone as a regular event for
quite a number of years the Irish club
revived this event Just to let her brawny
athletes have a try at the record and
sure enough Sheridan Jostled Mitchels
mark of X feet 8 ½ inches by tossing the
huge rock 27 feet 9 Inches
SixteenPound Hammer
In the 16pound hammer throw unlim
ited run and follow revived Just for this
occasion Flanagan sent the Iron ball Jill
fet 1 inch exceeding Kietys Syearold
record by 35 feet U inches
Smye Northridge and Charles Cased
sa gained a bit of glory In the 230yard
threelegged race This team hepped
over the furlongs in 17 15 seconds cut
ting 5 46 seconds off Zuat and Puffers
mark of 33 seconds made on April 1
Il 9IThe
The fourmile relay outdoor record was
Jostled Just a bit by four of the beet
ratters In the countryall of course be
longing to the IrishAmerican Athletic
club for this was a gala day for the Irish
club boys Tom Collins Frank Riley
Joe Broiaitow and Abel Klvlat running
in the order named beat the crack tam
of the New York Athletic club In this
event in 1808 45 The best outdoor time
previous to this was 1810 25 made by
the University of Michigan team Malo

of an Invalid
St Louie Mo Dec 4Mrs Dora
Elisabeth Doxey in defending the
charge that she killed William J Erder
with arsenic will deny that she re
ceived Rrderg life insurance or that
she knew his life was Insured She will
deny also that she married Erder and
will attempt to prove that he had an
other wife from whom he was sepa
rated
This statement was made by her at
torney I J Albert today
When the Wabash train carrying Mrs
Doxey arrived In the Union station sta
tion employes with an Invalids chair
were waiting on the platform
Mrs Doxey was carried from the car
to the chair A heavy veiling covered
her face and effectually concealed her
features from a curious crowd as she
was taken to a carriage
After she had been carried into police
headquarters Chief of Pollee Creecy de
clared that she was shamming and that
her apparent collapse was due solely to
the drugs which her husband had been
permitted to administer The chief or

MORE WHITNEY HORSES
VllL RACE ABROAD
New York Dec 4A J Joyner who
trained the horses of H P Whitney in
England last season and who returned
to New York yesterday on the Lust
tanla Is enthusiastic over the perform
ance of American horses on the English
turf He announces that on his return
after the holidays he will take more of
the Whitney horses abroad with him
Joyner says that he had more success
with young horses
They come to hand he says much
more readily I find than on this side of
the Atlantic and there was nothing new
for them either in climatic conditions
or in the grass courses over which they
ran A number of the older horses have
been shipped back to America but there
is no irtention on the part of Ameri
can horsemen to curtail their English
establishments
PACIFIC COAST WILL

Washington Dee 4A gun is being
designed by ordnance experts in the
army for the purpose of shooting dirigi
ble balloons and aeroplanes General
Grozier chief of ordnance in his annual
report submitted today outlines some
of the difficulties which the gun must
overcome
Dirigible balloons and aeroplanes
move rapidly change directions quick
ly alter their elevations at will and are
removed from any objects that assist
aiming points out the ordnance chief
For short ranges General Crozier says
it Is probable that the fire of small

the meu aboard airships will prove
most effective
Sixty United States rifles caliber 30

N C A DOES NOT WANT ANOTHER
I
MUDDLE LIKE ONE AT VALESBURG
The November issue of tne cycling
Review a monthly paper closely al
lied to the N C A contains an ed
itorial reviewing the squabble that
ended the sesason at Valesburg and
lining up with Chairman Kelsey of the
N C A board of control That the
N C A will draw up rules to avoid
if possible a recurrence of the Vales
burg muddlewhich will be remem
bered ac ascertains of the friends of
Jackie Clarke and the enemies of
Champion Kramer that Kelsey favored
Kramer in the ruling on the last
championship raceIs seen by the ed
itorial which follows
At the Talesburg track on October
3 the 1901 professional N C A cham
pionships were concluded and Kramer
by his victory secured the necessary
percentage of points to again win the
coveted honor In the last race of
the series he had practically a walk
over owing to the withdrawal of
Clarke the Australian sprinter woo
acting under instructions from his
manager McFarland refused to ride
because the referee upon the protest
of Kramer ordered the race to be run
In qualifying beats semiflnals and
final as prescribed by National Cy
cling association rule
The race was a fivemile event and
the management at the instigation
of the Clarke contingent had pro
gramed the event to be run practically
as a fivemile open
Others Refuse
The refusal of several other riders
to participate in the heats gave color
to the report that a strong combina
tion had ben made to defeat Kramer
by killing him off In a big field of
riders There cUld be possibly no
other reasonable excusethe heat
method of elimination being a per
fectly fair one to all concerned The
fact of the matter is Chairman Kel
seys decision wag so switt tnat it
broke the combination to pieces and
there was no time to frame up an
s
other that would prove available un
der the heat system before the race
was called The upshot o the affair
ha been the development ef a can
paign of mud slinging on the part i t
the injured Innocents who aided by
several selfconstituted oracle of cy
Cilng with axes to grind have inaug
urated a campaign for the chairman
official head
Sling Mud
Irresponsible statements which at
times degenerate into personal attacks
are at best but a weapon with which
to assail the integrity of a racing of
ficial who for the past eighteen years
hae borne a reputation for fairness
and honorable dealing The present
chairman is however the veteran of
many a hard fought battle and appar
ently enjoys the artillery fire of mal
contents in his direction He has no
upologies to make for his ruling and
in fact fairminded sporting men de
mand none of him The board of con
trol has sustained him by a unani
mous vote and adopted a more strin
gent rule making it mandatory for
entrants to ride in races unless ex
cused by the referee under heavy pen
alties A further revision of the pres
ent rules so as to bring them up to
the present requirement of the game
is also In progress and a repetition
of the recent Valesburg trouble will
be a remote possibility in the future
