On one of these anniversaries two ladies were walking on a street in Milan. They were Austrian tourists of high degree, one-of them-the Countess Cznega. Being citizens of that empire which had lost its hold on Italy, it is not to be expected that they would feel any sympathy with the celebration. - While passing some persons who were firing explosives a man set off a pack of firecrackers, several of which snapped on to the countess' dress, burn ing holes in it She was in no mood for such a misfortune and resolved on being revenged on the Italian who had occasioned it. Calling on a policeman, she showed him the damage that had been done, pointed to the perpetrator and demanded his arrest, that she might recover demages. The policeman agreed to do her bidding if she would accompany them. She consented, and the three went to the station, which j happened to be only a block away. The officer in charge suggested that j since the judge before whom the case i would be tried was then holding court j and the ladles desired to leave Milan j the next morning they go at once be-1 fore him and see if they could not get ; it disposed of without delay. This j pleased the irate countess, and they j went to the courtroom, j Now, a gentleman who had been I walking the streets enjoying the cele-' i bration had witnessed the accident and i ! followed the parties first to the police ; ! station and thence to the courtroom. ; There he listened with marked atten-, ! tion to the proceedings. The lady j ! claimed that the dress was worth 1,000 ! lira, or $200. She had bought it in I i Milan only the day before and sum-1 i moned the merchant who sold it to her ! j to bear witness to the price paid. This i j established her claim, and. as to the j ! man who had burned it, he confessed ; that he had done so, but accidentally. ; The judge ordered him to pay for the : I dress, but he said that he was a work-1 I man and without any means whatso- i ever. ! lie offered to bind himself to pay ' i by installments, but the lady, who was i revengeful rather than needy, declined j to accept such terms.

In the old days when Buck Ewing and King Kelly were Na tional league stars and Charley Comiskey, Biddy McPhee and Toad Ramsey occupied the spot light in the old American asso ciation Tony Mullane, afterward yes, long afterward a pitcher, was in the heyday of his career. It was said ot Tony that he could pitch with either hand and that just to bother batters after he had a game won he would throw one ball with his right arm and the next with his left. Tim Hurst one day said to Tete Browning, the Louisville outfielder and great slugger: "This Tony Mullane is am bidextrous, isn't he, rete?" "Reckon so," was Pete's re sponse. "They do say's how he kin swim as well as he kin pitch." M'CARTY VERSUS WELLS. r A v i 1 ' - i. - , Two White Heavyweights May Meet In New York March 14.

The and Little Fowls Die En Route Molasses Explodes. , Imagine the chagrin of a perplexed parcel post clerk when a package of eggs are scrambled en route to the ad dressee, a pair of young chicks die in their native element and a gallon of molasses explodes, giving the parcel the appearance of Mount Vesuvius in action.

"I wfll pay the lady the 1.000 lira she paid for the dress, but in that case it will be mine, will it not?" The judge ruled that it would. The lady, whose ire had had time to cool, seemed willing to accept the solution, and the stranger, taking out a pocket book, handed her the money and paid the costs. Then he said: "Judge, I know who this lady is, for I have met her at court In Vienna, though she does not remember me. Her ire at the man who unintention ally burned her dress was occasioned by the fact that our people are today celebrating the expulsion of our for mer masters, her countrymen. She has treated the unfortunate man with great rigor, and I propose to be equally ex acting. The dress she wears is mine, and I demand it immediately."

Of late there Is much discussion over Hal Chase's ability to play second base for the New Yorks the coming season, but the consensus of opinion among Gotham experts is that if he does he will be the greatest left hand ed second baseman in the American league. Time only can tell whether Chase can play the bag or not. There have been few left handed in Belders in the history of baseball, and for this reason there are those who doubt Chase's ability to play second base for the New Yorks. Back in the early days Philadelphia had a second baseman named Green wood who threw left handed. He managed to hold his own, but was not a real star. Hick Carpenter helped Cincinnati with the only pennant the Reds ever copped, in 1882, and he play ed third base, though he was left handed.
