Tommy News, of football fame, lias not failed to make a hit since lie has been on the Pnwtuckets, and in some of the games he has made three and four. the and Arlie Latbaiii, who is playing first base for New Britain, made one hit off Pren tiss Friday.

Jack Doyle has a batting average of .413 in (13 times at bat. Latham on first on one team and Roger Conner holding the same position on the other, must have put the spectators in j mind of old times. Some funny man has made the an nouncement that President Muckinfnss will divide §1,(11)9,1X11) among the St. . The Delehanty family, of Shanty Town, Cleveland, is very numerous in profes sional baseball this year, as tour brothers are in the game. "Ed" Delehantv, the heavy hitting outfielder, one of the most valuable men in the major league, is still with Philadelphia. lvitson is a perfect specimen of the farmer, and when Hanlon first saw bint on bis arrival be muttered:—"Gold brick." Hanlon wanted to get rid of Kitaon last fall, but Robinson urged him to hold on. Umpire Lynch means to carry out the anti-kicking spirit of the League rules. "That, was too high," sang out McGraw, after a strike had been called in a game in Baltimore. "Go sit on the bench," said Lynch, and McGraw did so. Chicago is looking for pitching talent. At Columbus they say that President Hart lias the refusal of "Bumpus" Jones. The Pittsburg club no doubt will lay Padden's case before the Arbitration Committee, and unless Padden relents and returns to duty, lie may bo suspended by it for the remainder of the season. Up to date seventy-eight games have been postponed in National League cities because ot rain. This means a big finan cial loss, especially in view of the extra traveling expenses caused by the new fangled schedule this year. Former Umpire "Wally" Fessenden, who has a string of horses at Lakeside, bet his colt Nenedah against $100 with Clarke Griffith that Boston will beat Chi cago out in the pennant race. Callahan will never make a right fielder, says the Chicago News. Thenies came out there too sharply and choppy, with a wide swerve to the fence on the foul line side.

It is repotted that the gate receipts of the McCoy-Knhlin fight were far below expectations, for they were well inside t he $o,lX)0 mark. In this city the bout would have been much more successful from a financial point of view.

Heferee, manager and proprietor of the Olympic Club, Bob Deady, made the big gest pugilistic mistake of his life Monday night when he declared the fifteen round bout between "Mysterious" Billy Smith, of Boston, and Charlie Johnson, of Min neapolis, a draw. Smith certainly had two men in the ring to fight, Johnson and the referee, and even then be couldn't 1 better of the contest and ttie result cer tainly showed astute management on Johnson's behalf.

Dave Shafer and his famous charge, Jimmy Michael, will arrive in Philadel phia on Thursday, and another great star will bo added to the big gathering of cycling champions now stationed at Willow Grove. The first night race 'meet at Woodside Park track Philadelphia will be held on Saturday night, June 11, when Ciesac, the French middle-distance racer, meets Joe Vernier in a 20-tnile paced race paced by twenty men on each side.

Big front .sprocket wheels seem to be all the go this season. Many of this year's wheels so equipped are seen every where. The impression prevails that the big front sprocket sets off the machine J' and adds greatly to its appearance. It may also seem that a rider on a wheel so equipped is one of experience. The smaller front sprocket, according to a certain class of riders, appears too amateurish, and it is known that a rider no matter how new to the pastime, wishes this impression to be avoided. The most common sight on the roads these days is that of the awkward rider, who is invariably ridiculed by those who see him. A person may bo naturally awkward at all things, but there is no good reason why lie should be on a bi cycle. A little attention to the proper adjustment of the seat, pedals, etc., ought to offset the awkwardness. In nine cases out of ten, the fault lies with the im proper arrangement of the pedal or the seat. If there is anything that makes a rider appear ungraceful or ungainly it is the placing of the seat too far back, etc. he no on all the the AMONG THE HORSEMEN.

Moore has left Ithaca on a twe weeks' surveying trip, but will practice immediately on bis return. The 'Varsity make-up for the intercollegiate race is therefore doubtful.

This Lail is Making Quite a Reputa tion in Delivering Benders With His Mighty Right. George Prentiss, the very clever foot ball player, baseball player and all round athlete, who is now pitching for Roger Conner's Waterbury club of the Connecticut State League, is certainly covering himself with glory, George lias now twirled three games and has won them all, bis opponents only making throe runs against him per This is not all he has done. His game. stick work being very good, he not fail ing to get a hit since being on the team, and on Friday against the New Britains he made three bits and scored one rum This game was tbo first home game lie pitched and the local fans had nothing but praise toy him, saying that there was no doubt but that he would stay the scar son out and that he would be one of the best pitchers on|the league. Since being, on the team George has bad three offers from other clubs, but has refused them all saving that lie was very well satisfied with his associates and tbo treatment hr has received. There is very little doubt but that George will be 0110 of the shining stars <6 the diamond and in Roger Conner hr has found a man who will push him t«i the front and do everything that w5K benefit him. Good luck to you, Georgr.
