By FRANK NEW YORK, Nov. 11. The Country person who bought a gold brick didn't feel half as badly after he discovered his error as Jawn McGraw does these days whenever he thniks about that "Pol" Perritt deal. Jawn got a gold brick in "Pol" which is bad enough. But the worst part of it, from the McGrawian view point, is that Jawn spent hundreds of dollars and many anxious hours in try ing to keep -Reb" Oakes, the manager of the Pittsburg Feds, from outbidding Jawn for the goldbriek. This is the yarn: Perritt used to pitch for the St. Louis team and Jawn decided that he'd do a heap better in a Giant uniform. So at the end of the 1914 season Jawn en tered into negotiations with Miller Muggins, the "David Harum" of base ball and Miller lived up to his nick name by letting Jawn have "Pol" for a considerable bit of booty. Began Flirting With Feds. Well, springtime came In due course, but "Pol" didn't come to the Giants. Instead, "Pol" began flirting outrag eously with the Feds. Oakes wanted him. He asked "Pol" how much Jawn wanted to pay him and "Pol" told him. "ril boost that total Jl9 per season," said Oakes. "Oh, very well I'm yours." quoth "PoL" "Pol" left his home for tie purpose New A New asiog and A real advance in tire making One Quality Only The Best Distributor Phone 314 Be win: ELD BU G.

In the nick of time, as the dime novels put it, Jawn, learned that "Pol" bad been quite un true to him that he had been lured away by Federal coin. McGraw Sends Kluaella. McGraw got busy on the wires at once and learned that "Pol" was on his way to the Pittsburg Feds camp. "Go thou and head him off." wired Jawn to Dick Einsella, the Giant ivory hunter, who was then in Mississippi. "I want Perritt. I need him. Outbid the Feds." Kinsella jumped the first rattler after he had learned the Perritt route, and headed off "Pol" somewhere in Georgia. "Greetings," murmured Diek. "Cmon in and have some sasaparilla or some thing." It was a warm day and "Pol" con sented. Then the Business Stuff. "Where ya goin'?" asked Dick casual like after the refreshments had been served. "Oh. me?. Tin goin' to the Pitts burg Feds camp. I'm eonna Dlav with t them this season," responded "PoL" No, you ain't," asserted Dick. "You're gonna play witn the Giants." "I am not," remarked "Poll.' "I was flggertn' on doln" that a while ago, but I changed my mind. J gotta right to "BECK'S" AMEN CORNER TT c. BENNETT, of the Tenth cavalry, is anxious to hear fitm boxing promoters in this part of the country. They are about as scarce as hen's teeth in El Paso but some of the New Mexico promoters may get' in touch with the trocper at Nogales. DECATJSE many of the soldiers could not secure leave, today's baseball game at Rio Grande park had to be postponed but the game will be played on Sunday afternoon, with either Cronicker or Graham on the mound for "he soldiers and Lewis and Hill for the professionals. AAIDLAND'S polo team is coming to El Paso to play the army officers during the military tourna ment at Washington park. The games should be well worth attend ing and local fans will have 4 chance to see a real polo contest. The Mid land team comes here with a fine reputation while the army aggrega tion boasts of some real stars. JWIESILLA PARE football circles are still agitated over an inci dent at Saturday's game when a football writer for an, EI Paso .morn ing paper was compelled, forcibly, to give np notes he had made of the Aggies' plays. The Aggies assert these notes were intended for future opponents of the college team while the sport writer insisted that they were legitimate newspaper notes The Las fruces Citizen severely criticises the newspaperman editorially. YEARLING FILLY BREAKS WORLD'S TROTTING RECORD Lexington. Ky.. Nov. 11. A world's record for a yearling trotting filly was made here at a meeting of the Ken tucky Trotting Horse Breeder's asso ciation Wednesday, when a yearling bay filly by Prince Ansel-IIla-Moko trotted a mile in S:17 1-S. She is owned by the Woodland Stock farm of Woodland. Calif. The former record was held by Miss Stokes when she trotted the mile over the same track as a yearling in S:ll-- change my mind whsn the other fellows offer me mari money." "How much more did they offer youT queried Dick. "Pol" told him. Klnnella liaises Back. "Well, ril beat that," said Dick. And right then and there Dick is reported to have quoted "Pol" a salary of 90 per year under a three year contract. "The terms are suitable to me." quoth "PoL" "but before I move from thli here Spot I wanta know what Jawn McGraw thinks about 'em. If he fusses about it 111 go right along on my way to the Feds camp.

Dick quickly got in touch with Mc Graw, told him what he'd quoted Per ritt. reiterated Perritt's ultimatum, and Jawn quickly sanctioned the deaL After Dick concluded his conversation with McGraw he had "Pol" draw up the papers and after he had assured himself that the document was an Iron clad three year affair. "Pol" changed his route, headed away from Augusta. Ga where the Oakes crowd was working out, and went along with Dick to the Marlin camp of the Giants. His rlaylng Fro-ity. Perritt became a Giatn at a reported salary of J SOW a year, and this is what he did in 1915 to earn it: He worked 35 games and won but , 12. He was knocked out of the box so often that everytlme he entered it the betting was J to 1 that he wouldn't last through the game. He pitched a brand of baseball so weird that it became a joke around the circuit. That's enough to oiake Jawn sorrow ful, but the sadness increases when he recalls that he must keep "Pol" for two years longer and pay him !WM for each of those years. And. in the meantime "Reb" Oakes is patting himself on his left shoulder blade. BY BECK." CUPERIOR judge Graham, of San Francisco, ruled in a divorce suit last week that insistence of the hus band that the wife learn to be a baseball fan and rooter is not cruelty and a ground for divorce.

Walter Smith will also have his Fiat in the race. Reeves was iven credit for the fastest official lap in the Tucson race, his mark being 3:55 for the course.

In Phoenix, the El Paso drivers will compete with Barney Oldfield, Earl Cooper and other noted drivers but they are con fident Of making a good showing. ONE minor baseball league reported 105 games postponed lor bad weather during the 1915 season. It's a cinch bet that it wasn't the Rio Grande association for only one game daring the entire season had to be postponed because of rain. That's a record which will stand for some time. The postponed game was m the first series at Tucson.
