Larry .McLean now has caught 28 games la succession In Cincinnati. He's willing to go /the rest of the season If necessary. "Young Cy" Young seems to have fully recovered his form at last, but bis brace comes too late to he of much benefit to Boston. Having made an awful fizzle of his Inst trial In center field for the Cardinals Sunday, Burnett Is to be tincanned at once by McCloskey. Pat Flaherty helped the secondplace cause of his old town by beating the Giants. Pittsburg's lead Is now a game and a half, or 12 points. The Reds say. that "Bugs" Knymond. the new Cardinal pitcher, who worked against them in St. L/ouis, is going to make his mark In fast company. After all the bustle to get him, Heinle Zimmerman, of the Cubs, will not be eligible to play In the world's series. His contract was not approved on or before August 31. Lach refuses to enter the baserunning contest at Cincinnati on a wet field, fearing that he will Injure himself. Tommy shows that he possesses sense as well as speed. Minneapolis appears to have third place cinched in the American association, hut there is a warm fight for fourth berth, with Louisville, Kansas City and Indianapolis involved. Although Detroit did great work against Chicago in their recent?serie3, the So* have all the better of the argument for.the season, having won 12 out of 18 games from the Tigers. Neuer, the young pitoher recently picked up by the New York Americans, looks like a sure-enough winner. He has won three games in succession, two of them being shut-outs. The Washington Americans have not only dropped four straight games to New York but played 28 straight innings before they succeeded in scoring. The first three games were shut outs. ( m Pitcher Tift, of the Highlanders, got the best price for twirling on record Monday. He went in and pitched two innlng3 of an amateur game at a picnic, for which he received J200.

That great runless battle o( 13 Innings between "Rube" Waddell and Old Cy Young was the most remarkable slab duel of the year. Only ten hits were made all told and neither twlrler gave a base on balls or hit a batsman. Ernie Diel, the Cincinnati amateur whom the Pirates came within an ace of pressing into service a week ago. Is fielding in poor form at shortstop for Toledo, but is hitting like a pile driver. He made five clean bits in eight times at bat. Griffiths will have his 6wn troubles from now to the end of the year holding the lead of the second division In the American league, but as he has only seven games away from home the balance of the season, it looks pretty bright for him. Carl Druhot, who was with the Reds anfe Cardinals last year, was released by the Altoona club of the Trl-State league because he was drawing too much salary. Druhot is thinking seriously of giving up pitching for outfield work. Jack Taylor was very sore over his release by the Cub management. The bell was run on Jack just in time to beat him out of a slice of the world's series money. Taylor and President Murphy had a war of words and nearly came to blows. Covaleski, the former coal miner, made a great start for the Phillies yesterday, pitching the last five In mugs auu rolling rsrooKiyn eown without a run and only two hits. The game had already been lost by Jloren and Ritchie, however.

TEST OF MINE PROPS EXPERIMENT MAKING AT POTTSVILLE BY THE FOREST SER-. VICE. WASHINGTON, Sept. 14.?In cooperation with the Philadelphia & Reading Coal and Iron Company, the Forest Service Is making arrangements at Pottavllle, Pa., for conducting a series ot tests In the preservation of mine props by a new combination treatment of the creosote and zincchlori.1 processes. The open tank method will be used In making these tests. Creosote, under most conditions Is the best preservative In general use. It is not only a powerful antiseptic but Is also a non-absorbent of moisture. The chief obstacles In the way of its universal adoption in wood preservation are Its comparatively high cost, and the limited supply. Zincchlorld, on the other hand, can be obtained In unlimited quantities and is very cheap. Its antiseptic properties are all that can he desired, but it is so'.ui-Ie In water. It Is absorbed .by the tlmeber In an aqueous solution, and when the treated timber Is exposed to damp air or soil, the leaching out of the chlorld Is only a matter of time. I' the results of the proposed tests t successful, It will be possible, at a small cost to permeate the Interior of the wood with ztnc-chlorld. If the timber Is then quickly taken out of a hot bath of zluc-chlorld and pulnged Into a cold bath of creosote, the oil will penetrate a thin outer zone of the timber and so "Jirevent the absorption of water and consequently the leaching out of the chlorld. By tbls method all the advantages of a thorough impregnation with creosote can he obtained at a very much reduced cost. It will not be necessary to wait several years for proof of the success of the tests. Chemical analyses of crosssections of the wood will reveal the thoroughness of the penetration of the zinc-chlorld, and will also show the condition of the enveloping jacket of ' the creosoted wood which Is expected ' I avnl.i.la wafn, tbo tntAI*iftr Of ' the treated timber. If the first pene- 1 tratlon Is ample, and the outer zone Is 1 practically waterproof, the test will be 1 considered successful. I MAJOR LEAGUE RESULTS : NATIONAL LEAGUE. Standing of the Clubs. ..

WHEELING, Sept 14?"One-third )f the sickness and one-third of the ieaths in West Virginia are entirely innecessary, to say nothing of the tremendous amount of unnecessary mffering. We know that this large imount of sickness and these many ieaths are preventable." Thus spoke Br. J. N. McCormlck, of Kentucky, nne of the national lecturers of the iraerican Medical society, Friday aft jrnuoii. Dr. McCormlck Is one of many such jatlonal lecturers that are working all jver the country on an educhtlonal lampalgn with a view to giving tlie American citizen the latest modern levelopments of preventive medicine. Dr. McCormlck arrived here early yeslerday morning and Is stopping at the HcLure, Dr. McCormlck talked Interestingly .vhen seen by the reporter. He tald that he had been traveling about in the Interests of the American Med!:al association for eight years. Last week he was at New York City, ahence be went to Hot Springs, and titer a couple of days' vacation came o this State. Will Tour State. ' It is the Intention to make a complete tour of the State, lecturing in ill of the leading cities. From here ic will go to Fairmont. Morgantown. Clarksburg. Elklns, Martinsburg, Blueleld. He has already spoken In two cities of the State, Ststersvllle and Parkersburg. He spoke at Parkersmrg Thursday evening; to-day ho ipeaks at Fairmont. He has traveled o extensively about this country ilnce first he engaged himself In this vork of public charity?for It Is ivlth Uninterested purposes that lie Is dong this lecturing?and has come in ouch with medical conditions In ev;ry State of the union. On the whole, te says, we have very good laws retarding health boards and sanitary :ondltions. The trouble lies In the dlsnlA?etailnftlto r>f fho franOWjl nllHHp Uicicoicuuca ui vu~ j .... It is for the purpose of arousing the reople and Instructing tbem that the Medical Society has been organized, to says. The society already has tranches In nearly every county of tvery State in the union. So far it ias prospered wonderfully, Mr. Mccormick says. But this is not enough. The society needs the co-operation of he' people, it Is .with a view to vltalzc interest everywhere that these lectires are sent all over the country. Other Matters. Bringing matters close to home, Dr. McCormlck spoke of conditions existng in this State. Said he: "The cemnerles would not be so crowded if he people only know how to take :are of themselves. One-third of the ilckness and one-third of the deaths In West Virginia are unnecessary. Many babes die each year from lack if proper treatment; grown-up chit iren. likewise, are victims of improper health regulations. "In this State last year there were 1,300 deaths from consumption. This means that the Slate has 8,000 cases if the disease constantly. "A revolution of medical practice Is at hand. Soon physicians will not be employed to doctor people; they will be mere medical advisers, to tell the people how to avoid getting sick -not treat them. They will- give medicine to prevent sickness." Again broadening his views, Dr. McCormtck spoke of the health conlltlons now existing in the United States army. "We are." said he, "far behind the Japs In this regard. In ihe Spanish-American war we lost 10 men by disease to every man shot, he Japs lost only 1 by disease to every >ne shot" < A BICGAME WILL BE THE ONE PLAYED BY THE ODD FELLOWS NEXT TUE8DAY.
