A new “Casey at the Bat”
record by De Wolf Hopper
(Victor Record 31559)
“Ten thousand eyes were on him as he rubbed his hands with dirt;
Five thousand tongues applauded when he wiped them on his shirt.
Then while the writhing pitcher ground the ball into his hip.
Defiance gleamed in Casey’s eye, a sneer curled Casey’s lip.

"Miss Helena Castle" (left) and her chum Miss BilUee Girard, from photo
graphs taken in San Francisco.
San Francisco, Cal., Aug. 20.—
Whether or not "Miss Helena Castle”
will ever admit that she is in realty
Mrs. Elias S. Gifford, divorced wife of
a wealthy Boston broker, graduate of a
fashionable New York school, athlete |
of no mean ability, and, until recently, '
a very prominent figure in Boston’s 1
most exclusive social circles (all of
which the local police claim to have es
tablished), it is an undeniable fact
that this dainty, demure ami altogeth
er very charming and very strenuous
little lady has won the distinction of
having regaled San Francisco, a town
that dotes on the daring and unexpect
ed, with one of the most unique sensa
tions experience.
In this accomplishment, Miss Helena
was aided by a real man’s tailored out
fit (plus a skirt), two stout little fists
and a loyal and equally charming little
chum, whom she introduced to med
dling police officers as "Miss Billec
It all fell out through a belief, firmly
i grounded and frequently expressed by
Miss Helena and Miss Billee, that if
they chose to wear what they pleased
and to come and go as they pleased,
that was their business and nobody
else’a, so there!
One morning, only a few days ago,
the private secretary to the chief of
police was astounded when a charming
young person, who looked very much
like a handsome boy dressed in skirts,
entered his office.
j "My name is Helena Castle. I want
i a certificate stating clearly that I am
a woman. I am tired of being accosted
| by ignorant and stupid policemen and
; being accused of being a boy in mas
। queradc. ’'
The secretary looked—and whistled
j softly.
Miss Castle was in striking attire.
J Iler soft brown hair was cut short and
parted on the side. Jauntily set on the
' back of her head was a modish Panama

hat. She wore a stiff white shirt and
man’s collar. Her coat was the regula
tion man’s sack. Her skirts were square
cut and her shoes heavy. In her natty
cravat a large scarf pin shimmered.
Presenting a certificate signed by a
St. Louis physician, the young woman
established her identity to the satisfac-1
tion o# the police and was given the
document she asked for.
That same night, as two severely
dressed young women were approach
ing the fashionable hotel where they
had their lodgings, a flas’...]y attired
young man, engaged in the harmless
midnight pastime of eating peanuts,
attempted playfully to block the side
walk and at the same time passed a
half audible remark.
Before the youth had any idea that
it was a good night for falling stars,
Miss Helena’s faithful right was
driven neatly and forcibly to the point
of his jaw and before the stars had
stopped falling the dainty Miss had
swung an equally persuasive left to
the young man’s ear.
That’s how Miss Helena ami Miss
Billee and the young man came to
go to jail.
In Miss Castle’s wallet the officers
found newspaper clippings that seem
! ed to establish the athletic young lady's
i identity without doubt, as Mrs. Gifford,
! nee Miss Helena Chick, of New York.
The clipping described the Gifford
l Chick wedding as one of the. exclusive
' events of Boston society, dwelling on
| the young bride’s prowess as a hnn
' tress and the athletic ability which
j won her a championship in the shot
i put at school. "Miss Castle” would
not deny her identity as Mrs.
but Miss Girard admitted it.
