A --ji;'S with Fort Wayne I' practically fussur-d although the final nrra!iK';u(nu have not been closed for this ovi'nt a.s yet. Thr fdning of players for tho com Ins; year is proceeding rapidly. An offer" from Hutch Montgomery, an outllclder from Livingstone, Jnd.. ha.s been received bv Smith, arid Mont gomery will probably get a chance hero this year. Montgomery was given a try-out with Indianapolis l.u-t Fprlng and while he did not .sti(k in that company, he is probably fast enough for the South Michigan. lte,.vo Mur,!iys Contract. The. signed contract of Joe -Murphy, tho Indianapolis pitcher from whom groat things are expected, was receiv ed at tho clul) headquarters Monday. Murphy will bo the mainstay of the local staff along with Smith this year, according to present plans. Smith al so has his c yes on a shortstop from the Texan league and has sent a contract to Jacob Cohan, a third baseman from Chicago. The. latter is admittedly an experiment, but the shortstop is of enough abllltv to mako hero almost beyond question. An order for saits Is to "bo signed up some timo on Monday. Tho color of tho road suits Is ail that has hold up this important detail sj far. White, will bo worn at home. JiadieV Days Arranged. Mondays and Fridays of each week r;lll bo ladies' day in .s'outh Hend. The league ruling Is that a ladies' day can bo held dui.ng each series here, Sat urdays, Sunday and holidays excepted. Thero will' be nine boy's days during tho summer hero, one with each of the, other teams, according to plans per fected by tho management here. The outh IJend fans will have no clmnce. to seo bite league clubs in ac tion here this year, according to the present outlook. Tho hit; leaguers have all been signed ritrht up to the opening of the season before this, and South Itend did not have a team in time to fret in on the schedules. There is a chance that major league! s will disport themsclces here later in tho vear, however. Will Wear Ma'-klnacf.. The Battle Creek champions will wear Mackinacs this year on the ball held, an order for a mackinuc for ev ery player having been given along with the order j.Vr suits. This Is but another of trrfviji novations that the old South Michigan biague is putting on and the Frank circuit will soon be swelling arouudl3 real major league style before JdingVif "allowed to con tinue.

TPP has lung fever and may not reoort this year, lie would probably have been turned over to Toledo in. any event if Hartzel wanted him. Hartel Out for Pennant. Hartzel tit Toledo, is hoping for a pennant this year. Tf the crew that Topsy lias can cop th ilag it means big money to every one and there are other South Michigan league mag nates who "would not Ve avers to see ing the rag go to the Ohio team if they cannot win it themselves. Hartzel was u member of Connie Mack's fa mous "board of strategy" while he was vith the Athletics, and If training under i great leader makes a player a great manager, Topsy can hope, for littlo more. He was a sure enough, member ot'jx world's championship team and lie "helped materially in winning pennants. Wlo-n ho went to Toledo he took his team up to second place and the fol lowing ye.ii- it did not do so well. If he can break into the limelight by fin ishing ahead, even in th .South Mich igan league, Topsy will l a much gratified minor loaguo manager. Raincoats and Rubbers AT THE RUBBER STORE 200 8.

John McGraw of this city, well known as a globo trotter, returned from his re cent jaunt through foreign lands with this littlo story: "While in Australia we took dinner one day at a hotel where they had negro waiters. The darky who served our table seemed ; Mt new at tho work and also a c ilustered. I or dered thick vegetable soup. lie brought it, and was just on the point of lowering it from the tray to tho table when his nerves overcame him, lit? tilted the plate and the soup land ed on tho shoulder of a nice new coat I was wearing. "Tho darkey immediately began mopping up my soup-smeared should er with a napkin, and after he had removed a certain portion of the ad hering vegetables, ho stooped down and whispered to me: " 'Das a right Mistah IcGraw. Don't you worry S'ah. I'll bring you some mo soup. Wc's got a lot of it head' ' Do Orientals Ilatlie? "Far be it from he to say that folks in tho Orient, Australia and Europe don't bathe." remarker Tris Speaker, Boston outllelder and another tour ing person, "but I will say they den't bath (j as often as we do that's a cinch. We lingered at the best ho tels in tho places we visited, yet in only a few of them were any of the rooms equipped with privato baths. On each floor in these hotels there was a public bath-room, but when this room had to serve the bathing desires of all the persons located on ; that ilocr numbers ranuing from 20 i t( 50 you might imagine with wild scramble that used to take place for the bathing privilege. 'Somo persons who visit those ho tels object to bathing in a public tub and so the hotel manager Axes them up with a bucket of hot water which they use in their rooms giving them selves ;i sponge bath." Iory a la MerMo. Fred Merkle of the Giants, known as "The Man With the Ivory Dome." and who ;ilso was in the party, tells this story on himself: "Just as our boat was about to sail from Japan for Australia, and most of us were in our bunks, a commotion was heard outside. Pretty soon some Japanese oiticers bean ham merino on the door of my room. I rsked thom what they wanted, and in broken Fir-rlish they told m they had been told 1 had taken a billiard ball away with me and that they wanted it back that the ship couldn't sail until I did turn it over.

"But Where's tho joke?" asked a young reporter person who had horn ed his way in on Merkle's recital. Merkle gave the youth the up and down a couple of tinus and then, as he started to walk away, said: "Find it." A Littlo British Humor. Jimmy Callahan, manager of the White Sox, took his nine-year-old son, Dan, along on the world's tour to act as mascot, and sot himself se verely criticized thereby. Danny, serving as mascot, of course, wore a tiny uniform, hustled bats back and forth for the benefit of the players,, and during the practice sessions often donned a big mitt and "warmed-up" some of the pitchers. "Horrible, quite horrible." remark ed some Britishers, when they saw tho diminutive Danny laboring like a regular ball player.

This week the first Central league players will report. Seventeen of them are coming to Terre Haute, and a squad also will report at Ft. Wayne. No oth er towns in the circuit are to have practice before the first of tho month. The idea of the early start is to try out and be rid of the discarded rookies, so that the regular lineup might play some games before the pennant raco is on. Terre Haute is now the only club whose management is in doubt. When Owner W agner went south, two weeks ago, it was reported he had given an option on the club to Ilufus (Lefty) Gilbert, who had bought his own re lease from Denver. Gilbert has been busy since then forming a stock com pany. Prior to that he had been act ing a.s manager in so far as consider ing prospective players was concern ed.

As a reward for a successful basketball season in which they lost only three games out of 30, the Holy Name Society Juniors were banqueted by the Catholic club of St. Patrick's Sunday afternoon in the society rooms. After the banquet Donald Lower, president of the society, acted as toastmaster and called on the follow ing for remarks: Father Lavin, the sponsor; Mrs. C. M. B atterworth. Mrs. Flora Guthrie and Mrs. H. M. Crockett of the Catholic club; John Woodworth, secretary of the society, who entertained with a monologue; Francis Butler, captain of the basket ball team; William Fernandez, vice president; George McCarthy, William Butterworth, who also gave a mono logue, and Carl Schubert, who gave a piano eolo.
