Mere bashfulness without merit Is awkward, and merit without modesty insolent. But modest merit has a double claim to acceptance.- Hughes. Try to be happy in this very present moment and put not olf being so to n time to come, as though that time should be of another make from this, which is already couie, and is ours. Fuller. When all Is done, human life Is. at the greatest and best, but like a for ward child that must be played with and humored a little to keep it quiet, till it falls asleep, and then the care is over —Sir William Temple.

WAGNER'S WONDERFUL ARM. ; n Uai Broken tho Rornrd for Throw ing m Raaeball. Hans Wagner, a young Jerseyman who played with the Louisville hnno ball team baa the most wonderful throwing arm in the world. Think of bearing a hall over 184 yards! Think of hurling the leather home from sec ond base, nt a height of no more than •dx feet all the way! Try either of these feats, then doff your cap to Hcrr Wagner's marvelous arm. Wagnei*sprung into fame at a car nival of sports in Louisville. Twenty- ! nine years ago John Hatfield astonish- | ?d baseball folk by sending the sphere | 138 yards. Hlnce 18t thousands of | ball players have striven vainly to break this reeoru, but it remained uti- ; equaled until Wagner attacked Hat- j field's figures. Wagner made three throws, stand ling in deep right field and throwing • to a distance of eight feet beyond the j home plate. The first attempt fell UAHS WAflsaa. ihort, and the second was two feet i ihy of the record line. To muke the lilrd, Wagner raised the ball so lilgn that It seemed lost In the clouds. When tho sphere landed It struck just 'our feet eight inches beyond the rec rd mark. Wagner's other record-breaking per- ! ormance was a throw from second to j he plate at a height of no more than •Ix feet all the way. From time Im timemorial catchers have attempted his seemingly impossible feat, but lone ever succeeded. Kittredge and Powers, two Loul | rllle backstops, strove to accomplish t before Wagner tried, and both failed. I'o measure the height of the heave. :i ear, six feet from the ground, was ilnced over the pitcher's box, midway 'rom home. Wagner stood two feet lelilnd second sack and hurled the hall nquarely through the uprights ami luder the crossbar. The missiic pass •d about four incliea under the bar I ind squarely into the mitt of Kit vedge. It was a straight, overhand | brow and the hall traveled with speed rnough to stagger Kittredge . THE NATIONAL GAME. The New York Club h*s announced hat it will give $10,1)00 In cnah for I -"red Clarke, the manager of the Louis ; dllcs. | Charlie Nichols of the Bostons has lliposed of his lanndr.v In Kansas City, de will stick to the elothing business n Boston. Men who sre both directly and in . llrectly Interested In the welfare of he national game say that the mag tales have only one course left to pur ; me. They must kill rowdyism or piny 0 empty benches. William A. Brady, the former man iger of Jim Corl>ett. says he Is out >f the prizefighting business forever. Jrady declares that If he could manage i i world-bentlug pugilist now lie would lecllne the honor with thanks. ! The third Cross of one family is | nuking a bid for fame. The first was j Vinos, then came Lave, and now Frank ' lopes to equal us brothers in ivputii- J ion. He. like the other two. starts | >ut as a catcher and will play with i he Mllwaukees. j Charlie Esper, than whom there was 10 better pltckcr not long ago. said | o a reporter recently: "Base Iwll is j i better Job than you usually tlnd lying j irouud, anil I'm sorry I did not know t good thing when I had it. I have earned a lesson I will never forget. | The wining of two consecutive ch.im : lioushlps by tile Bostons, who, as a ■ule, do not misbehave themselves, ms served to bring several club own •rs to a realising sense. The good •vork by the Cluclnnatls. too. u team hat has been inuUa to live up lo tin l •ules, Is further evidence that row l.vism does not pev. Arthur Irwin says that Ed William ion, of the Chlcagos, was the best man who ever played baseball. Without | loulit Williamson was a wonder. He •ould cover ground in great style, was 1 grout thrower and was exceedingly 'ast. while his ease and grace in mak- I ug all kinds of plays were matchless. | He was a splendid batsman anil a j wonderful runner. "Charley" Earrell. the well known j -atelier. Is opposed to the suggestion j hat catchers play under the bat all I he time, on the ground that most of I he injuries to catchers have been , -aused by foci t.pa. He declares that I he time of games could lie lessened j Ifteen minutes If the umpires were la I itmcted to mske the players run on ind off the field when exchanging ; urns nt the bat. rtM* to the note. j Among the few changes that will j tndoubteilly lie made in the playing •ules by the committee of the National League this winter will he one re julring a catcher lo play tip behind tli.i I >nt, as the common expression is. as 1 toon as piny is started. The Idea in j his Is to give faster notion to the \ fame, as it has been figured that a sui ng of the time lost by the catcher in •tinning back and forth anil throwing | he ball from 1 lie grandstand to the liteher will make a difference of from j SO to 30 minutes in the time of a I ;ame. A tlnce Grant l'leyer. Billy Earle, the little globe trotter mil well kuown caliber, is now a waiter in a Cincinnati saloon. Ten j rears ago Earle was one of the best •atchers in the business, and before he Brotherhood year was good for M.OOO a season. He made the trip irotind the world with Spalding's tour > its In 188 D. A CONSIDERATE MOTHER. The Daughter Telia Why She Offered No Advlceyon the Mnrrlnge Question. I bad taken a very toothsome but not highly finished dinner at the mountain farmhouse, and whan I started on my way the daughter, who had looked after my wants at the table, informed me that if I had no objections she would "ride a piece" with me. 1 gave an im mediate consent, ard we were present ly jogging along toward the Cumber land River. "I presume," I ssid, bowing with as much gallantry an the circumstances would permit, "that if any of your beaus should see us riding together my life would scarcely be safe from their jealous rage." "Well, I s'pose ef Jim wuz here," she hesitated, "it mightn't be sich a picnic as it looks, fer Jim's mighty bad about me. That's why he ain't here now." "Why?" I asked with considerable more interest and not nearly so much bow and palaver. "He shot a hole through the last feller 1 rid with and had to take to the woods till he gits well." "Does your mother approve of your marrying him?" I asked. "No," she responded easily, "Maw ain't takin' one way ner t'other. She's been married four times and has made such a dratted muss uv it every time that she says she ain't a flttin' person to give advice on the marryin' question, nohow, even ef I wuzn't old enough to do my own pickin' an' choosin*," which seemed to be such on unanswerable ar gument that I retired from the field. Linger* Longer. t' Bangs—Whatcher yo' stand on yer head for when yer takes er nip? Jangs—Well, yer see de fluid has to go up hill, an' it tastes good longer. Slie Thonshl of Pupa. "A Boston mother was instructing her little daughter how to behave when she went to luncheon at the bishop's house. 'Now, dear, when the butler hands you something the first time take a little on your plate. When he comes the second time you may help yourself to a little more, but the third time you must say, "No, thank you." just as you always do at home.' So the little Bos ton girl went to the bishop's house to lunch and came home much delighted with her visit. "Did you do just as 1 told you, darling?' inquired mamma anxiously. 'I took something very nice when it was handed to me the first time, and then when the butler came again i took a little more, but the third time I said"No. I thank you." But when he came the fourth time you hadn't told me what to do, so I just thought ol papa and said, "No, damn you!" ' " A wkivHnl. "Doy means well," said the newly en listed colored soldier. "I hasn't no com plaint ter make 'bout der Intentions." "Who is yer troublin' 'bout?" "De brass band leaders. When the white troopß goes out dey plays white folks' chunes, like 'Farewell My Own True Love,' an' 'Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still.' but when us troops goes out dey plays 'All Coons Look Alike to Me,' an' 'I Don't Care If You Nevvah Comes Back,' and slch like." X® Nonsense About Tliln NVooer. "And what did papa say to my mar rying a Rough Rider?" "He didn't say nothin'. I had my gun pulled before he could open his mouth." "But didn't he struggle a little bll against giving up his only child?" "Struggle? 1 guess not. I lassooed him fust thing of all." "And you got his consent?" "Got his consent an' a thousand-dol lar check on account!" Mtttle Xo Difference*. Plunkville Bugle: Just as we went to press we noticed that the "s" and the "g" had dropped off the ends of tht first word in our head line on "Shelling the Spanish Camp," but the difference made was so immaterial that we con cluded to let it go as it stood. Romantic. The autumn days are becoming hazy. The half-chilled birds through the breezes flit, And the maid plucks the wings of the frost-nipped daisy And murmurs: "He loves me: he loves me nit."

"Well, when I saw the word 'ver biage' in the paper and asked pa what it meant he said 'wind.'" Socklcnn. "Say, friend," asked the commercial traveler, "how tall are you in yout stocking feet?"

THE ROPED ARENA.. ART OF FEINTING. A Science In Itself, ami Three Iloxers Out of Five Know Nothing of It. Pugilists have known for years that | :lefense and feinting forever travel i :iund in hand. Feinting is defensive work finally figured down to a quick ness of the eye and museles. To feint well a man must be able to make it ippear beyond foubt that lie is about 0 lead. To do this the muscles must ne under perfect control, so that either aand may take advantage of the least jpenlng the feint may make. It is a science in itself, something itterly neglected by three boxers out of •very five, but quite as important an tuy part of the game. Of the boxers of today there are only 1 few who are worth a mention when the subject turns on feinting, and of tlieni all Corbett Is pre-eminently the most perfect. He is by all odds the liost wonderful man in this regard the world has ever seen. To him feinting is at least two-thirds >f the game. He finds new posslblll :ies and developes strange results from limply fooling his man. Corbett was the first whose feet were made to ussist in feinting. He found :hat moving in and out before a uiau ?oufused mm as to what was about to aappeu. I A quiek rush might result in the Plan's attempt to block something which would leave an opening as big is a house. A sudden side step often caused a man to lead in away which jave a perfect opportunity for a coun ter. Thus it was that Corbett Introduced uis feet to his hands as worthy assist ants in feinting. Others have followed his lead, and nave learned much, but few of them ire even good imitators, and none has reached nis standard of efficiency. Corbett will feint in his loose arm way while his man is pulled up in an inxlous hunch, with every fueulty on 'dge, to anticipate the uttuck. The itrain does no good and tires one out. Feinting consists only In movements >f the hands, feet and body, hut in cludes every trick and move which is made with an idea of deception. A ihift of the eyes, a careless attitude, or my trick which may induce oue's op ponent to believe his chance lias ar rived. I Choynski had a trick of ruboing his 308e. Very often Ins opponent would I >e induced to try something while Joe was thus employed. Invariably the j land would go straight at the Jaw ike a shot. Tommy Ryan doubles his left glove ip against his thigh as if trying to get 3>s hand into it better. Often boxers attempt to take ndvnn :nge of this, with the unvarying result )f having their heads jolted with a eft that gets a good, long start. | Corbett will suddenly drop his hands 0 ids sides as if very tired. Boxers lave been known to rush, thiukiug liey had him at such times, hut the way the hands rip in teach them hut they hare been learning a new j :rlck, nothing more. A Pugilist Who Fights. ! Oscar Gardiner, who. being a fighter, s also handicapped with a soubriquet. 'Omaha Ivld," is the talk of the coun -1 :ry. Sherman's march to the sea anl Jsear's trip across country to New i fork are Him liar. Gardiner left noth- I ng in the way of a fighter unbeaten , ilong the line of march. The weight uade no particular difference so long , is they made claims to the feather weight class. He would beat a 11S >oundcr one night and a 120-pounder lie next. He was looking for fight, ml accommodated all comers. The worst he got in the whole trip was a i iruw, ami that with a pretty big fel . ow. Better still, in all this time Gnr | liner has issued no statements nor uade any threats. He lias just work- Hi at his trade, that of fighting, like 1 hungry Klondiker on a new claim, i As it bus got to be part of the busi , less to make long speeches, it is but intural that this lad, who goes along | n the good old-fashioned fighting way, ' diould attract attention and win 'riends. Wan Kelly Itlght ? Discussion is rife among sporting men as to the teuability of Honest Folin Kelly's decision in declaring all 1 pets off on the fight between Corbett I md Sharkey. Generally Kelly's de cision Is commended. A1 Smith de | lares that Kelly was wrong, as a rcf- I ?ree has no rignt to touch on bets at all. A special dispatch from London juotcs Martin Corbett, an authority 011 ooxiug, as saying that the ruling re garding the netting was wrong. BOTH should follow the stake. It is the gen eral opinion of New York sports that he odium of the whole affair will not blow ft way for many a day. Say* It I* Different Now. " 'Taint what it used to he," remark ed George Dixon when talking of ooxing. Upon being asked what he meant, lie explained: 'These fellows nowadays go in to stay 20 rounds with foil. They don't tight to win. When we used to box at Coney Island the jest man won, and he won quickly." The Right and Left. Jem Mace, was wont to observe in die choicest cockney: "A cove as has 1 clever left baud, you knaw. is clever •uougli to make an even break with hose blooming chaps as depend on the h'auetloneer's hammer, that is, the •ight. The left hand is the bruins and he right is the muscle." Where Dlewrinament Is Impossible. There is 110 way to effect complete iisarmanient of the prize fighters so ong as they are allowed to retain pos session of their mouths. The Coming Featherweight. Teddy MeGovern of Brooklyn is now ooked upon as the eomiug feather weight champion. VnungeNt Member ef lilg Teanm.

She had been talking pleasantly to two or three women. She had mad* her good-byes all cheerful and bright, and, after 6he had disappeared, one woman turned to another and said in a tone that waa scoffing: "She la s thorough woman of tact." Now, ic this case, the woman who had saic none but pleasant words, who, by o bright story, had prevented the discus sion of a petty scandal, was a womar who was as brave-hearted as any thai ever lived, and who bore, not only hei own, but the burdens of a good man) other people, yet she saw no why she should inflict her troubles on her friends, or why she should not b< in its best sense a woman of tact. A woman of tact is one who feels that the story told to hurt your feel ings is essentially bad form, and in considerate of the feelings of others. A woman of tact is the one who is courteous to old people, who laugh: with the young, and who makes her self agreeable to all women in all con ditions of life. A woman of tact is one who makes her good-morning a pleasant greeting her visit a bright spot in the day, and her good-bye a hope that she may come again. A woman of tact is one who does not gauge people by their clothes, or their riches, but who condemns bad manners. A woman of tact is one who is cour teous under all circumstances and in every condition in which she may be placed. She is the woman who can re ceive the unwelcome guest with a smile so bright and a handshake so cordial, that in trying to make the welcome seem real it becomes so. A woman of tact is one whose love for humanity is second only in her life's devotion, and whose watchword is unselfishness in thought and action. By making self last it finally becomes natural to have it so. Making a Corner Snfu. With little expense a pretty corner sofa may be made for a sitting or draw ing-room. The platform, one foot in height, may be made by any amateur carpenter. Upon this is fitted a mat tress or cushion, which may then be covered as elaborately or as simply as desired, the same scheme being carried A CORNER SOFA, out in the curtain at the back, which should be lined with a plain color. The looping is done by drawing the ful ness through brass curtain rings, the last on either side being finished with an ornament such as a Japanese fan, or any other effective bit of color. Piled up with cushions this makes a charm ing piece of furniture. Tee by Courtesy, Every one is aware that much of the tea we drink is tea in name only, so much is it adulterated. But there are many beverages called teas which are not fraudulent manufactures, though they are called by the name of the delicious Chinese leaves. In Mauritius, for example, they make tea of the leaves of an orchid. In Peru, they drink mate, a tea made from a native species of holly. The Abyssinians make tea from the leaves of the catba edulls. which hat such stimulating qualities that to chew a single leaf will produce all the effects of a strong cup of coffee. It is most valuable to travelers. The Tasmanians are said to be the lucky owners of no fewer than 100 kinds of leaves from which tea can bo made, while the Tonkinese have tea from berries, leaves, woods and barks of trees. In Sumatra coffee leaves are put in the teapot and the result is said to be excellent. Tli. Siamese Brldmroula. Every Siamese girl who reaches a certain age without marrying is tick eted and labeled and placed in a privi leged class, under the special care of the king, who binds himself to find a husband for them all. His method is delightfully simple. A prisoner in any of the Siamese Jails may gain his par don and release by marrying one of the ineligible class. Whether he is already married or not is not of great conse quence, for in Slant it is not necessary to draw the line at one wife. Might He Adopted Here. There are curious customs in some parts of the Middle Empire, as China Is called. Young girls who are mar riageable wear their hair in a long plait down their back, while in this a red ribbon Is interwoven. This can only be worn by one who is unmarried and Is not bound by marriage engagements. His Pnforlnnale Argument. She —After all, you must admit that women are better than men. He—Oh, I don't know. The Bible doesn't say anything about seven de vtlß being cast out of a man. She —No, of course not; he has every one of them yet. Proper Derivation.
