AMONGST THE ATHLETES Spicy Items Taken From the Latest Happenings in the Roped Arena and on the Field of Ath letics-Wilmlngton's In teresting Budget. DIAMOND DOST. Nixon McCafferty, of this city, who has been pitching on the Rome team of New York State League, arrived home yesterday. Tim Hurst, whose experience as man ager of the St. Louis Browns has satis fied him that there are worse jobs than an umpire's, will be found on Nick Young'B staff of umpires again next sea son. During the winter he will be ref eree of the Kentucky Athletic Club of Louisville. No other club in the National league has as many local players on its pay-roll as the Pittsburg team. At present Gard ner, O'Brien, Clarke and McCreery are the Pittsburg boys who are playing witli the home team, while the other native player, Killen, has gone to Washington. Chicago wants Cunningham, and is making all sorts of inducements. Louis ville, however, resolutely turns a deaf ear to all overtures, just as it did for years over Fred Clarke. Cunningham himself says he will play nowhere but in Louisville, where lie lias become a prop erty owner. From Cincinnati comes the report that John T. Brush, after adding Jack Taylor to his string of star ex-St. Louis twirl ers, has admitted that he lias a bunch of big deals on that will surprise the base ball world. If there is a team in the Leage that needs bracing it is the Cin cinnati Club. According to Cleveland advices all the players except Wallace have refused to sign for next year until they know some thing more about the Cleveland's future, and of its intentions towards its players. Wallace was given extra inducement to sign, thus making him material for a deal. Both McGuire and Mercer make no bones of saying that they would like to get away from Washington. Mercer ex presses preference for Chicago but would nave no objection to Cincinnati. He says his pitching arm is as good as ever, and that he expects next season to be in his pi T- , • ■ , The Boston triumvirs are entitled to credit for voluntarily giving the Boston players a cash present of *2,500 for win ning the championship. As there are 17 players on the Boston Club pay roll this means a present of about *150 to each player. Quite a snug sum to pick up un expectedly these hard times. Along toward the end of the season each year there are a number of players in the big League who are laid up with malaria, cramps and other ailments com mon to humanity. It might be interest ing to keep nil annual tab on these play ers and see if the same ones are so affect ed each year.

CYCLING. The outlaws cannot have held up St. Louis as much as they expected to have been able to do after all. It is an nounced that a series of nine indoor bicycle meets in that city from February 15 ta March 1 next have been arranged. Jimmy Michael was expected to ride his first race as a professic * ' ' Cumberland Park track at ashville, Tenn., Thursday. At the last moment he became convinced that bis mount had not much of a winning chance, so he declined to ride. Michael is most anxious to win his first race. T| Un , A A . and the Franklin A.

As the teams are evenly matched a good contest is looked for. When Pennsylvania and Harvard line "P to-day on Soldiers' Field, Cambridge, Mass., it will be the first big game of the season, and the contest will go a l° n S way toward deciding the college championship. Harvard hopes are not running high and Harvard money is none too plenti 1 ful on to-day's game witli Pennsy. Nine out of ten Harvard men expect to see their eleven beaten, though they keep a 1 brave and hopeful front in public, j Harvard's team only took alight prac tice Friday, consisting of a few minutes' | practice with the scrul, during which tlie Varsity acted entirely on the defen sive.

When right he will challenge the world for the champion ship and a few other things. Nothing is to big for Tom Eck. Motor-cycle pacing is now being seri ously considered on this side for use next winter,and probably this coming winter at indoor meets by way of a trial. It is understood that Fournier and Ricard, the,recent arrivals from Paris, nowin New York, and who are experts on motor pacing machines, will add to their stock of cycles now here a petroleum tandem for racing purposes. Major Taylor rode a wonderful two miles in practice Thursday. The first mile was made in 1.35, and the second was finished in 3.16. The trial was not an official one. If it had been the record would liavi been the darkey's. The present record is 3.21, held by Eddie McDuffee. Yesterday afternoon was an ideal one for record breaking trials, there being hardly any wind blowing. Four quints were used to pace Taylor in the two-mile trial. Assisting ladies up hill by towing them seeniB to be bo popular in England that a "spring towing-line" has been put on the market. It works like a spring tape-measure, the cord connecting the two machines being wound upas fast as the tension on it is released. American escorts find it easier and considerably more agreeable to ride side by side, ttie arm being used instead of a rope. FOOT BALL. Kafer is the latest find at Princeton. The base ball captain intended to con fine himself to diamond athletics, but he turned out with the foot ball squad in response to an emergency call. Hutchinson was back at quarterback on Princeton's eleven in their practice Thursday, and will likely be entirely well bv the Yale game. Ayers was used at fullback, but wiil go to half when Wheeler returns. Only half of the reg ulars were able to play, and many subs will be used against West Point to-day.

The members of the University of Pennsylvania Gun Clnb left Broad Street Station yesterday morning for Cambridge to hold a shoot with the Harvard Gun Club this morning. Yale University has decided to aend a team to the annual Intercollegiate Gan Club shoot to be held at Junction on November 12. Princeton, Univeraitv of Pennsylvania and Cornell will be represented. Tom Jenkins, the noted Cleveland wrestler, who will meet Adali on the mat at the Madison Square Garden in a wrestling match, "catch-as-catch-can" style, best two in three fails, to-night, and who arrived in New York city Tues day, is in fine physical shape for the .... contest. The candidates for the Yale Gun Club team are practicing three times a week for the annual inter-collegiate shoot, which will be held on Saturday, Novem ber 12, on the grounds of the Bay ton Gun Club at Monmouth Junction, N. J. A dispatch from Winnipeg last night stated that J. H. McCullough, the cham pion skater, will start on an extended tour as soon as the season opens. He will visit ail places in the Territories and British Columbia where there are rinks, and will afterwards go to the lower Provinces and then to northern Michi gan. He has received an offer to give exhibitions in Paris,France, and negotia tions are now in progress. on mouth Harvard, OLD RIVALS TO MEET. If Princeton Beats Yale She May Play Pennsylvania on No vember 10. There is a possibility that Philadel phians may see a Princeton-University of Pennsylvania foot bail match at Franklin Field this season, if events shape themselves accordingly. There has long been a yearning on the part of the students and most of the alumni of eacli institution for a game, but a few people have stood in the way and blocked all negotiations, and now those people may be overruled. According to Dame Rumor, steps have been taken t» play a game, which, if brought to a successful conclusion, will be decided at Franklin Field on Satur day, November 19, that date being open for each university. There is one contingency which may prevent the game, however, and that is the result of the Princeton-Yale game, the report being that if Princeton wins from Old Eli the match is a certainty. Warren vs. U. of I*. Medicals. To-day the Warrens will line up against the '99 Medicals of the University , of Pennsylvania. This game bids fair to be one of the best games of foot ball ever played here. It lias been the champion iiiter-clase team for two years. Sichel, the champion runner, is halfback and captain of the team. It is wortli the price of admission to see his playing, as is nothing unusual for him to make a run for a gain of sixty yards.

The sale and exhibit of articles made by the boys of the Ferris Industrial School in the New Century Ciub's draw ing rooms yesterday afternoon was quite a success. These articles, such as tables, chairs, linen chests, book cases, writing desks and other articles, were very handsome and neat. The sale was largely patron ized. To illustrate to the public the method of instruction in the Manual Training Department arrangements were made to have the boys working at their benches. The boys also gave examples of their abilitv as seamsters. Some were making clothing, while others were making fancy articles, which were very pretty. Hustling Insurance Men. Hustle always wins. A more pointed example of hustling business ability would be hard to find than that of the associated managers of the Covenant Mutual Insurance Company W. S. Hoff man and Charles II. Fehrenbaeh.
