The Lonisvilles are to have a well deserved benefit at the close of the sea son. much bet The Boston batting order doesn't suit Tim Murnane, as he says: "The batting order of the Boston team is about the weakest arrangement possible. Heady base runners and good batsmen al ways should have the call for a leading place." Frank Bancroft blames Cincinnati's loss of the pennant on the lack of con trol of the team's southpaw pitchers. In Frank's opinion bases oh balls did the Reds up in enough games to lose the pennant. It is generally believed in League cir cles that Ewing will not be manager of the Cincinnati team next season. Where will Cincinnati get his equal? Capable League managers are rare birds, indeed. Ball, of the Baltimore Club, is father of a fine baby boy. He is the fourth papa in the club to be made happy since the season began. Manager Hanlon, Hugh Jennings and Kelley being the other happy ones. It is said that base ball in Toronto was not the bonanza for Arthur Irwin that it was last year, hence his readiness to shift from independence in Toronto to a salaried position with a League tail end club. It is said that Tom Dowd wants to join the New York team. His work lately has been in direct contrast to his playing earlier in the season. "Billy" Hamilton is still the League's leading base runner, but has fallen be low the .600 mark iD stolen cushions.

Jimmy Dougherty, hie manager says that if it were possible he would like to make a side bet with Fairburn. Sharkey and O'Rourke are doing their best to make a match with Corbett, but the latter does not want to fight, prefer ring, he says, to find something easy. Jeffries he regards as about the kind of a man he wants to box. Gus Ruhlin is is now among the heavyweights who want to meet Corbett. It is a pity Corbett ana Norman Selby, alias Kid McCoy, can't be tossed in a ring and turned loose. They are slowly but Burely drairing the string around boxing in New York state, and as matters are now there will be few regrets when they suc ceed. Jack Everhart says he will post $250 within a day or two and challenge "Kid" Lavigne, offering at the Bame time to make a side bet of from $500 to $1,000. But it will do him no good, at present, anyhow, as the "Kid's" next bout will be with Tom Tracy, in San Francisco, somewhere around November 1. Pittsburg is anxious to get the McCoy Corbett bout during the week of the Knights Templar conclave. Everything f oes, and the police authorities and lirector of Public Safety all say that while they will not allow a prize fight, they will have no objection to any box ing exhibition. Things were not all exactly as they seemed in the proposed Corbett-McCoy contest which was to have taken place before the Hawthorne A. C. The re cent Gilsey House episode is responsible for the public statement of Corbett's manager that secret articles were signed in the proposed Corbett-McCoy fight, which was to have taken place at the Hawthorne Athletic Club in Buffalo. These secret ai tides included a paragraph omitted from the publicly signed agree ment, which bound the big pugilists to divide equally the purse for which they fought. ICd ward that "Gentleman Jim' CYCLING. It is said by a friend of the racing men who are out against the L. A. W. that many track owners of prominence will cooperate with them. Properly handled, the racing men will make a notable struggle. Daily advice for those who need it: "Don't chew tobacco when riding against the wind, especially on a cycle path where others may be following you. Possibly they may not all be able to swim." "Major" Taylor's manager received word Thursday'morning from the manu facturers of the wheel the colored rider uses, congratulating him on the stand he took in refusing to join the outlaw riders. This congratulation came after the "Major" was scared into signing with the outlaws. The national circuit meet at Woodside Thursday afternoon was made conspic uous by the absence of the flyers who have decided to sever their connection with the L. A. W. racing board, and under the newly formed union trust their future welfare to the mercies of the A. C. C. of California or some kindred or ganization. Of the anti-union men who rode Thursday for reasons best known to themselves were: Watson Coleman, Bobby Thompson, A. McEachern, Bob Walthour. H. B. Weest, Weise Hammer, Josh Lindsay, George Kreamer, Samuel Staley, A. C. Mertens, J. Shomo, Tom Butler, Nat Butler, Fred Titus, J. T. Colgan, H. W. Eckhardt, C. B. Jack and W. Trott. The war between German cyclists and magistrates is still raging, and everv week brings more news about fines for attending a law Court in cycling cos tume. Among the latest victims was a lady who attended in bloomers; another was a solicitor wearing knickerbockers and long stockings. Speculations are rife as to what will constitute the lines of the '99 model. Little is known of the trade's intentions, but it is believed that the low hangers and short heads will remain and be noticeable features in the '99 up-to-date model. A few manufacturers may adopt the 30-inch wheels, but it will be mainly an experiment. An electric tandem, which is believed will work a revolution in pacemaking, has been constructed by three New Yorkers. The machine and Us riders will weigh a trifle over 1,100 pounds. During a trial on a track the machine made three miles in about a two-minutes' clip. One lap was ridden in 30 seconds, which is equal to a 1.30 gait, and which clearly demonstrated that great speed will be obtained out of the electric tan dem in the near future. It is claimed that one mile can be ridden in 1.20 or better; five miles at 1.30 for each; ten miles at a 1.35 gait, and forty miles can be ridden in the hour without any trouble. AQUATICS. C. C. Mann, '99, has been appointed manager of the Harvard University crew. Manager Sinkler, of the 'Varsity crew of the University of Pennsylvania, has issued a call for candidates for the class crews for October 5. retain Iligginson, 1990, lias issued a for Harvard's crew candidates.

Sam Boyle coached the Bucknell team for an hour Thursday at Lewisburg, Pa. Donovan, Brown's quarterback of 1891-95, has been chosen to coach George Ti'»<£tenwill play her first game of the season today with Lehigh Univer sity. The weather was too warm lor good football work at Ithaca, N. Y.,yesterday and the Cornell football team was ac cordingly let off with very light work. The Harvard football squads on Soldiers' Field, Boston, yesterday im pressed one by their numbers. Besides the big 'Varsity squad there are now 114 freshmen who came out to try for their class eleven. Pennsy's scrubs defeated the 'Varsity team Thursday, scoring a goal from field and a touchdown to a single touchdown. Fumbling by the 'Varsity backs was largely responsible for the showing. Two former captains—Rodgers and Murphy—acted as coaches at the practice of the candidates for the Yale foot ball team yesterday afternoon. As both men played tackle when they were at Y'ale, they naturally laid great stress on the tackling of the team, which has been weak. Practice on the 'Varsity field at Princeton, N. J., yesterday afternoon was fierce and showed a sincerity of pur pose on the part of the candidates, which is noted by the coaches as one of the most favorable symptoms for a credit able eleven later in the season. Tom Burke, the world's quarter-mile champion, intends to make a bid for the Harvard eleven. Tom knows the game well, gained by his varied experience as back on the Boston English High School team, and his physical equipment would allow him to squeeze through some nar row breaks in the line, and with a small opening he could discount any half back getting down the field. AMONG THE HORSEMEN Tod Sloane won two firsts at Newmar ket, Thursday, and was awarded a third on a foul. He also rode James R. Keene's St. Cloud in the Jockey Club stakes of $50,000, but was unplaced. The horse Sir Gawain has not been destroyed, as reported, but will be doc tored and may race again next season. James R. Keene and "Jack" Bennet will sell their old stock shortly and begin anew in 1899. Neither of these gentlemen have had even ordinary luck this year. Del Norte, the new guideless pacer, lowered the world's record at Salem, Ore., Thursday, covering the mile in 2.04J. The fractional time was 0.30, 1.00, 1.31. The previous record was held by Marion Mills, now deceased, at 2.04J. John R. Gentry defeated Joe Patchen with ease in the pacing race for a purse of $5,000 at Springfield, 111., Thursday. The latter wgg the favorite, but was not in the best of condition. Gentry won the first heat in 2.04J and the second in 2.03J. It was announced that it was the fastest race ef the year. There was an immense crowd present. MISCELLANY. Cornell and Pennsylvania men are again talking of holding a fall cross country run. Cornell wants the race to be run at Ithaca. M. Janowski, the Parisian chess player, will leave Paris in October. He will sail on the steamer La Touraine, from Havre for New York, where he will engage in a match with J. W. Showalter.

BROUGHT UP IN LUXURi The Former Wilmington Society Belle, Who Was Found in a Chicago Hotel, Drowned Her Sorrow in Drink. There are two sides to the story of Florence Frost, the heiress and former Wilmington society belle, who is now a servant girl in a Chicago hotel. One is her's and the other is her family's. The family's story is told by Samuel M. McPherson of Brooklyn, who was in this city looking up the records as to the property left Mrs. Frost. He said, "Yes, I have found Florence Frost, but we all wish she was safe in Heaven." "She was br, uglit up in luxury," said Mr. McPherson. "She was sent to school and college. She had everything that inoneycmild buy to make her happy. ShiTEad beauty and intelligence. But now I read of her in Chicago—ar rested. "Florence Frost's grandmother was my great aunt. Her maiden name was McCaulley. Her family was wealthy and bad a fine social position. Her father was attorney-general of this state, and her grandfather was a wealthy real es tate man. When he died he was regarded as very rich. "Mr. McCaulley's first wife was Flor ence's grandmother. He married again, and on his death he left all his estate, now doubled, to his second wife. All of it was to go to the grandchildren at her death. "It was in 1884 that the girl left her home in this city. She fell in love with a good-looking young fellow, George L. Frost, who had a good position in the Internal Revenue office in Philadelphia. Soon after they went to Bayonne, N. J., where the young huBband was chemist in a big chemical works. They bad a beautiful home. There was another woman, jealousy and bitterness, and at last a broken home. The husband disap peared and with him the light of the voung wife's life went out. "From that day Florence Frost began to sink lower and lower. Her family found that she had learned to drown her woe in drink, and so they dropped her from their minds, though no power on earth could deprive her of the fortune that would be hers the day her step grandmother died. "More years passed, and again they read ef Florence Frost in the news E apers, this time in Cleveland. She had een picked up in the streets a vagrant— this heiress to $200,000. Last Christmas they sent her to the workhouse there. "Her time up, they let her go. Again Florence Frost dropped out of sight. Five months ago she was heard of once more, this time it was intoxication and arrest in Chicago. This woman—she was thirty now and looked fifty—had been disorderly in the public streets. " 'If it's true,' said Florence Frost simply, when told of her good fortune in Chicago, 'then I shall spend it all to find my little boy. Perhaps I have been wrong, but only God knows who is to blame for it all.' "Florence Frost's old-time beauty still shows it traces. She speaks the English of a cultivated woman, and has the man ners of one born to a better place than maid-of-all-work in a cheap hotel." i\ WONDERLAND TO REOPEN. Rebuilt, Remodeled and Refitted the New Wonderland Begins the Season. Dockstader is back. The Wonderland will reopon on Mon day night. The Wonderland has been ever since its opening in this city, and the new Wonderland, which inaugurates its sea son's business, will not only maintain the popularity of the past but greatly in crease it. On March 3 of this year the Wonder land was gutted by fife, which began shortly after midnight and burned fierce ly until daylight. From the ashes of the old theatre has risen a new Wonderland. Tbe whole interior was torn out and entirely re modeled, and the work of rebuilding was commenced under the personal su pervision of Mr. Dockstader. Tbe result is a credit to Mr. Dock stader and to the city and the house is now one of the prettiest and neatest playhouses in the country. Iso expense has been spared to make it down-to-date and attractive. The stage has been materially enlarged and added facilities for scenic and me chanical effects installed, until it is a marvel of mechanical perfection. A scenic artist of well known ability has been employed in the painting of new scenery to replace that which was destroyed in the flames. The electrical lighting Bystem has been improved and the house will be com fortably heated by the most modern steam heating apparatus. Added con veniences in the way of telephones, mes seuger calls and toilet rooms go to make »P a sum total of completeness, A comfortable gallery reached by di reel entrance from the street is one of the improvements.
