BASEBALL. tGamer. Win First Two Games of Big Series-Play Rings Around Fort lVorth---Big Crowds Out. Iteore one of the most enthusi astie .'rowds of baseball fans that .'ver attended a game in Shreveport, the Gasser, won th first and sec ond games of the "big" series with Fort Worth, Wednesday and Thurs day. Every loyal Shreveport fan knew that the Gassers would wallop the Panthers when they met in th3, final series, and they were not dis appointed, as Smith's athletes went after the games from the very be ginning and won both games by slamming the ball to all corners of the tot. The fans always like to see plenty of base hits and they got to see plenty of them. In the first game three pitchers were flse4 to stem the tide of the Gassers, but to no avait, as they went after them all with a vengeance. Robertson, Whitaker and Dillinger were the ones who were slaughtered, and in the second game Pate and Wachtel -rated as two of the Panthers' best lpitchers-were pounded for a total of fifteen hits. Buddy Napies pitched Wednesday and as was expected he put up a brilliant game and brought joy to tilhe fans. Lewis pitched the second, and it was one of the best games he has hurled this season. He was wonderfully effective with men on bases, and kept his hits well scattered. Every man on the team was full of pep and the way they fielded and batted the ball will not be forgotten by the fans. Every man came in for his share of glory and the big crowds left the park in a happy mood. Of course, the series is not over, as Shreveport hasn't won four yet, but it is a safe bet if they keep up the gait they set in the first two games, it will soon be over. They play over in Fort Worth tomorrow and Sunday, and also Monday if an other game is needed. Class will tell and barring accidents and other lit tle freaks of baseball, the best team will invariably win. To be sure, every fan knows the passers are the best team, so there's hoping they will continue their present gait. A. big erowd of sooters will go to Fort Worth for the neat two games, and will help to lives up things for the Gassers. Swindler Sailed. E. O. Hazlewood is in jail. He was arrested today by Deputies Tanner Iand Norville. He is wanted in Gil mer, Texas, charged with swindling A Nightmaa~e to Them. The officials of the Unlitet ttates Steel Corporatiso saw that it is the foreigners etr-i eB4 inl their plants who a the stria'i trouble, while th can wo-rkºmvn are remaining heir jobs. But it does not litc in the mnouths of officials of the"trust to 'make a .omiptaint, be. cause in the good )old days of un* limited tariff loot they brought the foreigners to thia country by the shipload to work for less money than Americals would accept. Now the human ballast they imported has become a nightmare to them. Now Orleans Stakes. And as reportdd from Cleveland. it is proposed 'tosend negroes into some of the stB mills to supplant the un-Americanized foreigners im ported as cheap labor who are made serviceable at election by the poli ticians. Better keep the megroes from this contention. Submarines May in Time Bring Up Lost Treasure From the Ocean's Bottom Foe the time being the dhlgibte las overshadowed the submarine in marvel of performance. It is as if the sub marine had exhausted its possibilities of wonder and had become common place. It is suggested, now that the destruc tive work of the submarine is tom-1 pleted, it be prepared for service In the cause of science and to elear up the mysteries of the seas, says the But talo News. There are the treasure galleone, there is the Titanic and the Lusitania, the collier Cyclops, to call the under sea boats to adventure. If ever they coulO get down to the toot of the see where these lost ships are held, there would be untold wealth for them. An Italiao navigatoe has tome for ward with the suggestion that the sub marine should be put to work to test for fable or fact t'e tales of the lost Atlantis, the isla4 once great and populous that was overwhelmed by the sea because the peole of It had an gered the gods. There may have been such an island lost in a seismic con vulsion. Oh, there Li we -enough to? the submarine in many fields of discovery. But the craft must be made much more powerful than any we know now if they are going to the uttermost depths of the ocean. It probably will be many, many years before they can accom plish such a drop, but Ia the mean time they will not be idle. Wager on Earth's Shape Is Lost by Decision of Three Prominent Judges It will scarcely be believed, says an exchange, that the question of the shape of the earth could ever have dis turbed the peaceful atmosphere of the law courts. Yet in 1879 the question, indirectly, indeed, did come before three learned judges, and the case ex cited a good deal of interest and amazement. The circumstances were as follows: The plaintiff, one Hampden, enter tained the opinion that the world was not round and caused an advertise ment in a paper, called Scientific Opin ion, challenging philosophers, divines and scientific professors to prove the contrary from scripture, reason or fact. He deposited $2,500 in a bank, to be forfeited to anyone who could prove to the satisfaction of any intelligent ref eree that there was such a thing as a convex railway, canal or lake. The challenge was taken up by no less a person than the late Prof. Alfred Russell Wallace, who proved to the satisfaction of the referee the curvature to and fro of the Bedford level canal between Whitney bridge and Welsh's dam (six miles) to the ex tent of five feet more or less, and the $2,500 was paid over to him. But he did not keep it. The plaintiff apparently began to see that he was making a fool of himself, and brought an action, and recovered back his de. posit, on the ground that the whole affair was a wager, and therefore illegal I Gems of Thought.
