I Mike Finn, manager of the
a- Mobile ball club, "that can

Lord let Englishmen happen in the first
place, bat they exist and some o
them attend ball games.
"One day last summer Mobile and
Birmingham were battling desperately
in a game that might mean a good
chance for the pennant to the victor,
and all Mobile had turned out to see
the struggle. A youngster who clerks
in a banana house had come out to
i lew the strife, and, somehow or other.
an Englishman got into the next seat
in the pavilion. Then began a period
of awful agony for the youngster. Ev
er time a play of any kind occurred.
the Briton would drive his fist into
the kid's ribs, and cry: I say, me lad
I say. old chap what was that then?
y-s9 And what do they do next,
know?" The game was one of the
thrilling kind, brimful of sensations.
Something seemed to happen every half
irinute or so, and every time the crowd
shouted the Englishman battered the

the Englishman was growing more and
more interested, while the boy's ribs
SHORT, SNAPPY SPORTLETS
JACK DILLON is considered a wise
fighter. Dillon has 1 studied the
money making part of the game,
and has come to the conclusion that he
had better keep busy and make all the
monev he can while he is young and
strong and popular with 'the sporting
public. He is willing apparently to
fight every night in the week, and
does not insist on a guarantee, but will
go on for what he can get.
Charles Webb Murphy, it is believed,
is probably prepared to pass some un
kind remarks in the general direction
of exCub Joe Tinker. Manager Joe and
his Reds made it four out of five from
The Cubs can boast of a squad of
outfielders larger than ' that of any
major league team. They have two

Jimmy Lavender recovered from the
jinx which has followed him this sea
son long enough to wallop the Pirates
by the score of 12 to 2. Only three
hits were made off of Lavender. It is
reported that Everg threatened to ask
Waivers on Lavender recently if he did
not back up.
The average baseball fan idea is that
the softest Job in the world is that of
the baseball reporter while the scribes
sit in the press box and wonder if they
will ever witness a game which they
won't have to write.
Charles Comiskey and Jimmy Calla
han have practically decided to make
Johnny Beall a permanent fixture on
the White Sox. Both Comiskey and
Callahan think highly of Beall's hit
ting, and if he can continue at his pres
ent clip, he is assured of a berth 'with
the regulars. Mattick, who has been
playing in the outfield for the Sox,
seems to be slipping somewhat. He has
made only one hit in the last six games.
After dropping IS out of 20 games
played la the east, the St. Louie
Browns are back in their home town.
Prior to returning to St. Louis the
Stovall aggregation braced and won
three out of six games from the White
Sox, at Chicago. In Detroit they
bagged three out of four games.
Frank Gotca. in a telegram to Emil
Klank. his manager, says that he will
defend his title once more. Gotch will

was a very polite young man. did his

to block the blows, but that was im

would jolt him, and he'd hear that in

"By the fifth inning the kid was
black and blue from neck to belt line;
the plays were coming thicker and fast

that his paws thudded in like piston
rods. At this juncture, some athlete
lit on the ball for a home run. Tre
mendous uproar in the public and the
youngster let out a crescendo screech
of glee.. It was broken in the middle
and converted into an agonized squawk
as the Englishman sunk his large hand
in the kid's ribs.
