Richmond lovers of baseball will be given one more opportunity this year to witness some fast exhibitions of the national pastime. Under the man agement of Clarence Jessup, the Rich mond Amusement company intends to place an Independent team in the field about the middle of September. This team wll be composed entirely of crack minor league players, who will report here as soon as the champion ship seasons close in their respect ive leagues closes. "In the event Indianapolis does not win the American Association cham- uionship, I expect to have on the local team Ownie Bush, the star short stop of that organization, and-Hopke, the crack third baseman. Of course if In dianaDOlis does win the pennant it will be impossible to secure these men as the Indians would have to play post season aeries," stated Manager Jes- fcup. "For first base I will try and secure "Tacks" Fisher, who has been play- t ing a whirlwind game with Sharon O. P. league team this season. For second base I will try to secure an other local favorite. Clyde Parker, who was with the local league team the first of this season and who is now with Fairmount and leading the west ern Pennsylvania league in bating I do not know who I will secure for the outfield, but it will be composed of a bunch of hard hitting stars. will have two pitchers ,one of whom will probably be the crack Dayton southpaw. Earl Yingllng, who has made such an excellent record in the Central league this season. Yingling v. as on the All-Star local team last fall.- It would not be surprising if one or two of the outfielders will be Indian apolis regulars. Local fans will be pleased If Bush is secured as he is a hot favorite here. The little fellow has been one of the sensations of the year and numerous major league teams are bidding for his services. It la reported that President Watkins of the Indianapolis club has refused to sell him for less tha $10,000, a record price for a youngster who has had only one season's experience in the fastest of minor league company. Man ager Jessup takes great pride in the showing Bush has made as it was he who "discovered the fast little short stop. When Jessup was managing the Marlon team in the Interstate league he signed Bush. He kept the ' lad with him for two seasons and taught him the fine points of the game. Bush thinks there is no one quite as fine as his former managet. A DESERT PERIL. The Deadly Clear Water of the Death Valley Poole. "One of the chief clangers to travel ers In crossing such dreary and arid Tastes as the far famed Death valley arises from Ignorance as to the char acter of the Infrequent pools of water along the route." said a mining engl- lier of Denver. "The tenderfoot, growing faint un der a blazing sun. will want to quench Ms Intolerable thirst when he comes ta a shallow hole whose water, clear us crystal, seems absolutely pure. He can with difficulty be restrained from drinking it by . some experienced com ranion. who knows that one draft will probably cause serious if not fatal illness. This water, for all Its reemlng purity and clearness, Is loaded with arsenic, and many a man has lost his life by its use. J ' Curiously enough, the only water in. the desert that is safe to drink is foul looking and inhabited by bugs and snakes. When you come to a muddy pool on the surface of which Insects are disporting themselves, however re pulsive it may be, both to the eye and palate, you may drink It with Im punity, despite its looks, as a man will who Is crazy with thirst produced by the burning sands and merciless sun." Baltimore American. THE PALISADES. Their Counterpart Cannot Be Found In All the World. The edge of the world, If such a thing may be, lies hardly a rifle shot away from one of the centers of the world Itself the city of New York. The Fallsades, those mighty walls whereon the annals of the centuries are graved what an edge of the world their Up presents to him who comes, perhaps at night, to their rough hewn elevation! In no other place other than this near proximity to man and one of his greatest cities could a physical fea ture so profoundly vast and Impressive be so hidden from the world. Their counterpart cannot be found In all the world, and yet the Palisades are almost vnexplolted and unknown to the globe circling, sight hunting public that year ly traverses the continents or seas to gaze at things less wonderful in somo distant field of nature's marvelous achievements, for little does any one know of these titanic walls who has merely seen them from the Hudson were they somewhere off In a land comparatively inaccessible, reached by a transcontinental thread of steel, the tured grandeur and man would rui far to explore them.

A WILD RACE. When the First Pony Express Was Nearing Sacramento. Cornelius Cole, ex-senator from Cali fornia, tells in his memoirs how the first "pony express" reached Sacra mento, Cal., long before the first trans continental railroad was surveyed: "Those who were there to witness it will never forget the arrival of the first of these express messengers at Sacramento. It was an occasion of great rejoicing, and everybody, big and little, old and young, turned out to see the fun. All business for the time was suspended. Even the courts ad journed for the event. A large num ber of the citizens of all classes, grave and gay, mounted on fast horses, rode out some miles on the line to meet the Incoming wonder. "The waiting was not long. The lit tle rider upon his blooded charger, un der whip and spur, came down upon them like a meteor, but made not the slightest halt to greet his many visit ors. Then began a race of all that waiting throng over the stretch back to the city, the like of which has never been seen. It may have been rivaled in speed and confusion by some of the cavalry disasters during the war that presently followed, but the peaceful people of Sacramento, I am sure, never beheld anything of the kind before or afterward. "The whole cavalcade, shouting and cheering, some waving banners and bareheaded, riding at the top of their speed, dashing down J street, might have been taken, bad It occurred on the plains, for a band of wild Co manches, but the little mail carrier paid no attention to them and kept in the lead." A ROMANCE IN TIN. One Man's Fortune From the Price of Pair of Shoes. Some years ago a man who had started in business in Tasmania found that he could not meet his engage ments and was compelled to call a meeting of his creditors. Among his assets were a number of Mount Birschoff tin mine shares, which were regarded as worthless. It was the fust tin mine discovered In Tasmania, and the output was not as heavy as the prospectus declared It would be. The shares dropped in value, and when the debtor offered them to his creditors the latter refused to touch them. Among tne creditors was a poor shoemaker who had supplied the man with a pair of shoes. He offered to take the shares in payment of his debt No one raised any objection. and he took the shares, saying, "They may turn out well some day." Five years later, under proper man a cement- the mine develoosd into a All $25 Hart, Schaffner & Marx Suits at a Clean-Up Bargain All $22 Hart, Schaffner & Marx Suits, summer's latest styles, to go in this Clean-Up Sale for 11 775 All $20 Hart, Schaffner & h Marx Suits, Clean-Up Pri ces, a bargain at All $18 Hart, Schaffner & Marx Suits, tailored in latest styles, your choice for Affairs of the Accustomed the past few days of sweeping all events before them, the Yankee athletes competing in the London Olmypic games were greatly disappointed yesterday by the defeat of Rector, the University of Virginia star, in the final heat of the 100 meter dash. Walker of South Africa was the victor. It was a neck and neck fight from start to tape, the American los ing by a yard. In the other events the Yankees had things their own way. It la reported that the guy ropes on the championship flag pole at the Lon don stadium are being worn out run ning up the stars and stripes. When ever an athlete wins a final event the flag of his country is run up to the top of the flag pole. Philadelphia took the Reds again yesterday, making it three out of four. Incidentally by this victory the Quak ers kicked the Reds into fifth place. By the way, those Quakers will bear close watching. On their Western trip Just closed their record was fifteen victories and four defeats. At Pitts burg they won three out of four. At Chicago they won four out of six. At St, Louis they took five straight and at Cincinnati three out of four. With valuable property: It was a veritable mountain of tin. and the shares sprang up to an astonishing point. Eventually the metal was "cornered" by a French syndicate, and, the shares reaching a fabulous price, the once indigent shoemaker sold out and real ized a fortune. The money -was wisely invested, and now he is in the enjoyment of an in come of several thousands a year de rived from the payment for a pair of shoes valued at $3. London Telegraph. GOOD FISHING ASSURED. Richmond fishermen will be glad to learn the contract for the repair of the Feeder dam south of Milton has been awarded. This dam was damaged by high waters some time ago. The dam is constructed just below the conjunction of the Whitewater and Greensfork streams and the fishing at this point is the best in this section. The stream is of good width and depth and remarkably pretty. The dam pro vides a supply for the canal from which Connersville obtains its water. At the same time the dam is repaired the brush and other loose material is to be removed from the bottom of the stream- Knollenberg's Summer Sale is on in earnest.

Now its about time for some fanatics to advocate the suppression of base ball because it is brutal. The local bowling alleys will open about the first of September. This sport promises to be as popular in Richmond this year as it was last. At the Centerville home coming the only athletic event scheduled on the program is a pie eating contest. There are so many pie artists entered it is hard to pick a favorite. Mr. I Meredith, sheriff, who is prominent In political, stump blowing and base ball circles, has reluctantly signed with Easthaven. He was afraid if he joined the hospital group all the other teams in the city league, seeing the useiessness of making further ef forts to win the pennant, would with draw.
