l'AGK TWO. RICHMOND AGAIN DRUBBED EARLHAM In Short Game Professionals Downed Collegians by a 5 to 1 Score. HERB WHITE WAS "IT.' HE IS PROBABLY THE BEST COL LEGE PITCHER IN THE STATE AND LOCAL PLAYERS ADMIRE HIS STYLE HE MAY SIGN. The Richmond squad worked out yesterday at Reid Field, which Coach Vail has generously placed at their disposal when needed. All the candi dates went through their (stunts in a gingery manner except the pitcnors, who are suffering considerably from lamewingis, a disease which effects the twirling arm. Iledjuk was a little under the weather but that did not prevent him from taking a hard work out. Vail's squad of husky Quaker colle gians took the field about four o'clock and after a half hour practice they lined up against the professionals. White was in the box for Karlham and the first two innings of the four inn ing game which was played he was the whole works. In these two innings he whilled nix of the locals. In the third White's support went bad on him. This disheartened the big fel low and in the last round the profes sionals rapped him hard. The locals took the contest by 'a score of 5 to 3. Capt. Parker worked Conner all four innings and the big fellow held his opponents well except in the third when they combed him for two or three bingles. Fiant went to short yesterday with Hanna in center field. Both men worked out nicely in these positions. Parker led off the batting list yes terday with Shinn following him. "Ev er since 1 have played professional ball 1 have led off on the batting list." stated Tarker. "If I have to bat third or fourth I feel lost." The captain succeeded in getting his base every time up yesterday and Shinn was pretty successful in ad vancing him. Shinn is a good hunter and is as fast as a streak. This com bination may work out all right. Burns and Bamhraugh batted third and fourth and each of them succeeded in getting a clean drive. Members of the local team are loud in their praises of Herb White, the Karlham box artist, "lie has plenty f speed and one of the nicest drop balls I ever saw. lie also has splendid control," remarked Manna. Last year White came here to join the Rich mond team but he decided that he would remain in the amateur class a year longer, so he returned home. He may play professional ball at the close of the college season. Its a cinch that there is no college twirler in the state that is in his class. For sale cent, cigar. anywhere Pathfinder. PLANT RETARDATION. Ylie Method of Producing Flowrri Ont of Season. Lilies of the valley and many other plants are now placed on the markets cf the world's great cities months aft er they are out of season. This is ac complished by "plant retardation," holding back the development by means of cold and darkness until what ever time Is desired. Then they are nice more subjected to light and warmth, when they blossoru. The most prominent feature of a plant re tardation establishment is the huge cold storage building in which the plants are stowed away. I'nder the care of the guide the visitor passes the portals. In a moment ho steps from the warmth and light of a summer's day Into the cold bitterness of a win ter's night, the darkness of which Is but feebly relieved by the flickering band lanterns. The interior of the building Is divided into various cham bers, and each one of these is allotted to some particular kind of plant. One chamber is full of lily of the valley roots, the next is packed with boxes containing lilium bulbs, while again a compartment is crammed with small patted plants of azalea and spiraea. Each and all of these varieties are 1n n dormant condition, sleeping away their time entirely unconscious of the changing seasons iu the outside world. The walls of the chambers are thickly coated with a deposit of frost crystals, and millions of these flash like dia monds lu response to the rays of light from the lamp. The degree of cold is usually obtained by means of a com pressed air apparatus, and the freez ing current is led into the different chambers through wooden channels. In course of time these passages get choked with hoarfrost, and it becomes necessary for a man to enter them and clean the accumulation away. This is a cold job. In places the temperature Is as low as '20 degrees below zero. The costume of a workman engaged In this clearing out operation Is prac tically an arctic outfit. Every part of the body with the exception of small holes for eyes and mouth must be protected with thick wool. Other wise serious frostbites would ensue. Retarded plants may be kept in check for eight months or at times as long as a year, and curiously enough they do not seem to be any the worse for the treatment. Indeed, the experi ence seems to make them grow all the faster when they are allowed to make a start Some varieties grow at a tre mendous rate when they are brought Into heat. Chicago News.

Shinn, the little left fielder on the SMOTE HIS LANDLADY Now Wieland Is in Trouble Over a Bill. a Peck of Board HIRAM GOT PEEVISH. Hiram Wieland. former proprietor of the New Windsor hotel, who some weeks ago was heavily fined for oper ating the house as a place of ill fame, is again in trouble. Last night, he was placed under arrest, on a charge of having committed assault and battery on Margaret Wysong, who runs a boarding house in the east end of town. Wieland has been boarding with her. Yesterday she asked him to pay his bill. This made Wieland peev ish and he smote his landlady. This morning Wieland entered a plea of not guilty in the city court. The case was postponed until tomorrow morning and, at the request of the prosecutor, will be heard by a jury. DINING TABLES. The Transition From the Festive Board of Primitive Man. The first dining table was probably just a block of stone or a log of wood, but even primitive man must soon have discovered that these devices did not provide for the comfortable dis posal of his legs and have set about taxing all bis ingenuity to invent some thing else. It is probable that as the result of his cogitations a rough hewn piece of board supported on two big stones came into fashion among the eiite in these far prehistoric times. The early trestle table which was used In the beginning of the fifteenth century consisted of a parallelogram of wood, fashioned into a board, resting upon two or more pedestal-like sup ports. And we have a reminiscence of this movable kind of table in the ex pression, "A seat at the board," today, while that of "taking the chair" is ob viously a survival of the time when a chair was the place of honor reserved for the master of the house or given by the grand seigneur to the guest whom he wished to honor, the other diners sitting upon rude benches placed at the side of the table. One can imagine the inventor seated at the head of his new dinner table, clad iu his best bearskin and surround ed by a select and admiring company of his Intimates, who ate roast flesh literally off the festive board and who drank the first toast at this first prime val dinner party in his honor in cool water from a stream hard by. From ! this stage to planks resting on rude ! trestles would be an easy transition, and civilisation had of course made j considerable progress before the sup j ports and the board were joined as one piece of furniture. The Word "Studio." "Studio" is one of the many foreign words that have acclimated them selves in the English language. It is a recent import from Ituly. unknown to .Tohusou's Dictionary and apparent ly not occurring before the nineteenth century, but it has supplied a want. "Study." which is the real English tor "studio," suggests a room for reading and writing, and "workroom" lacks distinct ivene. The French get along with "atelier." which literally means a place in which small planks are pre-pared-in other words, a carpenter's workshop. The Mladic Class In Novels. Is it true that the modern English novel reader insists upon hearing about the rich or the great? I can hardly think so when I remember the many successful works of fiction dealing with costers and Scottish ministers, journalists and typists, actresses and novelists. The Disraeli tvpe of novel seems almost extinct, and the great i bulk of works of fiction deals with the ! middle classes. London Ladv. I I.ayinsr For Him.

Tigers are impressive creatures, es pecially when one meets them in the forest. George Maxwell writes of ' them: "There is little doubt that al most every one has a peculiar sensa tion of the almost godlike beauty, pow er, activity and strength of a tiger. A tiger will overawe and make conscious of his inferiority a man who would be unaffected by the bulk of an elephant. The feeling is, however, elusive of de scription, and I can perhaps best ex plain it in the words of a most (harm lug French gentleman who was once manager of a great tin mining com pany in Ferak. We had just finished lunch when he entered in a state of tremendous excitement. Walking alone and unarmed along an unfrequented bridle path through the forest, he had walked almost on to a tiger. "He gave us a most vivid narrative of the encounter how the tiger had been lying down concealed in some long lalar.g grass beside the path; how he was within ten yards of it before he saw it; how then it rose and looked at him; how it yawned at him; how it then walked slowly across the path in front of him and then stopped nnd looked at him, again yawning, and how it then deliberately walked away into the forest, whose depths tinaily hid it from view. "Some one asked the Frenchman whether it was a big tiger. He an swered: 'Well, messieurs, I cannot say if he is a big tiger. My eyes see that he is big. but I cannot say how big 1 see him to be. and if I say how big it is perhaps that 1 tell you a lie. But I can tell you. messieurs, how big I feel him to be, and I can tell you the truth. When he is standing there in front of me I tell you that I feel he is not less than thir-r-ty feet high.'

The Salvelinus foutinalis, which is currently but inaccurately cplled brook trout, was supposed for many years to be a small fish. Agassiz was largely instrumental in exploding this fallacy. It is not an uncommon thing for an angler with ordinary luck to get a s'.x or seveu pound trout' of this variety. It is known that a trout, may grow to weigh eleven or twelve pounds. There is, however, great difficulty in account ing for its variation in size. Iu northeastern Canada there are large streams and lakes in which only lingerlings have ever been found. In the immediate vicinity of such water three and four pound trout are quite common, and seven and eight pounders are not phenomenal. In all these wa ters Crustacea do not abound; there are no small fish of auy kind except small trout. All the fish are pure fly feeders. At some places, it is true, frogs abound, but. taken as a whole, the difference in food supply is not an adequate expla nation for the difference in growth. There is no substantial difference in the waters as to temperature, size, ori gin and course. Climatic conditions are the same. The small trout taken to virgin lakes in which there are no fish have sometimes grown to a great size, have sometimes remained small and sometimes have njt thriven. The an glers who haunt these waters have not yet found a satisfactory explanation of this peculiar condition of things. It is one of the mysteries which lend fascination to the art.

The usefulness of urban libraries has been proved up to the hilt, but the question arises why similar advantages cannot he supplied in rural districts. As a matter of f.n.ct. they are more needed in the country than in the towns. The dullness of country life is constantly bewailed, and it can be readily believed that a young agricul tural laborer or a young woman brought up in the country would be very glad to have the chance of the wide choice of books which their cous in in tawa eair ROLLICKING COLLEGE SONGS WERE SUNG Wabash College Glee Club Made a Distinct Hit in Entertainment. MANDOLIN CLUB IS STRONG. WAS ONE OF THE E EST EVER HEARD IN THE CITY INDIVID UAL ARTISTS WERE RECEIVED CORDIALLY. A big audience at the First Presbyte rian church was entertained in a most pleasing manner last evening by a real-for-sure band of rah-rah boys, just fresh from Wabash eyjlege. The deeds of the Crawfordsville institution iu Athletics have been mighty. The lit tle college; has made some of our haughtiest universities bow' the knee in football, track sports, basketball and baseball. Now, judging of the glee club and mandolin club Wabash has in the field, the plucky college is out with the intention of cornering all the collegiate musical honors now infest ing this section of the union. Clad in evening dress and sporting the scarlet, the color of their alma ma t r, across immaculate shirt fronts, the sturdy Wabash musicians created hav oc, with numerous young society wo men who were in attendance. The. mandolin club is one of the best organization of its kind ever heard in ihis city. The quartette also made a big hit. The glee club sang popular selec tions and rollicking college songs. 10 very effort of the glee club list nod like "more" to the audience and the glee clubites responded gracefully to the demands made on them. W. Cm. Masters rendered a violin se lection which was one of the features of the highly pleasing program. This voting man is a master of the instru ment. Mr. Bees, the soloist, possess es a rich baritone voice and he was en thusiastically received. One of the distinct hits of the evening was the work of Mr. Walter. Clad in regular 'varsity glad rags, with a sassy white outing hat, he sang "He Went to Col lege." The audience liked him so well that, he was forced to respond to three encores. A FAMOUS DIAMOND. furious Incident In the History of the Kohiuoor. The Kohinoor fell into the hands of the ruler of Lahore and on the con quest of the Punjab became a posses sion of Queen Victoria in the year ISoO. The first authentic mention cf ti;i$ matchless gem is by an eastern monarch, who refers to a '"jewel valued at Qpie-half the daily expenses of the whole, world." A century or two later the Persian conqueror of India, seeing the diamond glitter iu the turban of the unfortunate rajah, exclaimed, with rough and somewhat costly humor, "Come, let us change our turbans in pledge of friendship:" The exchange was promptly effected. The stone fell at last into the hands of the British, and pending its delivery to the crown Sir John Lawrence, afterward Lord Lawrence, was made its guardian. His biographer, lios worth Smith, re lates a curious incident of its custody. Half unconsciously Sir John thrust it, wrapped up in numerous folds of cloth, Into his waistcoat pocket, the whole be ing iti an insignificant little box. He continued the work upon which he was engaged and thought no more of his precious treasure. He changed his clothes for dinner and threw his waist coat aside, still forgetting all about the j little box contained in it. j Some weeks afterward a message came from the viceroy saying that the cjueen had ordered the jewel to be im j mediately transmitted to her. j It: a moment the fact of his careless i r.ess Hashed across Sir John, but he slipped away to his private room ; and with his heart iu his mouth sent ! for his old bearer, of whom he asked: "Have yon a small box that was in j my waistcoat pocket some time ago?" "Yes, sahib," the man replied. "I ! found it and put it in your chest of ; drawers." ! "Bring it here," said Sir John. "Open j it.' he ordered when the little box hail been produced, "and see what is in ' side " ! lie watched the man with tense anx iety as fold after fold of the rags was : taken off. i "There is nothing here, sahib," said i the old man at last, "but a bit of glass."
