Then he composed hniiclf to await the results, probably or bleed Jig to death , which is said to be a pleasant tenration.

He statedthatthostoryhadbeonmadoupoutof whole cloth as such an action had not been even thought or. Tula information will no doubt be hailed wit h delight by the rooteraas Joyce is agrcat f avonto and a good man. He has not shown up well at the bat in the few games that have been played, for theslniple reason that hi has gone up against two ieft-handd pltchcra, and if there is anything that Bill can't do it is to bat a south-paw twiner. On the wholo, it would bo a very bad move Tor tho Washington club to let Bill Joyce go unl-ss they get an extra good A No. 1 man to fill his place. Not so much his place on third Uvat as on the team for there are positions he can cover much better than third first base, for instance. PET STOCK ASSOCIATION.
