His bright blue bat ting eye notes the scam on the ball when It conies floating up to the plate, and he steps into it" witli as much enthusiasm as any young ster that ever came out of the bushes. In Philadelphia they said Lave was growing old —that he was becoming a little slow. Pause for a moment and penult that to soak in. Ho they gave him a ban quet, shook him by the hand and said farewell. He has fared well ever since. Down Washington way he Is the idol of the fans and the pet of the president. When he strolls down Pennsylvania avenue r«ere congressmen stand on the edge of the curb and salute as he goes by.

"The pitcher should know the style of ball the man he is facing prefers, though this knowledge will not always protect him. The pitcher must be mental ly alert all the time, studying his man, trying to detect his weak ness and playing to It all the time. Control is one of the points all By Jas. J. Corbett. One of the Oddest records ever recorded In the history of the prize ring was chronicled in a little place in Minnesota several years ago, Two lighters who were engaged to furnish a windup to a boxing show were both knocked out and neither one was credited with a victory, it was the most pronounced case of yellow fever I have ever heard of in my many years' experience in the ring. .lack MurphjT, a boxing iustruc tor with whom 1 had several friendly sot ton during my trips through the northwest, was the principal character In (he story, and it came to me through him Murphy had engaged a couple of colored fighters, to box 10 rounds, and because of I heir showing at different times he was sure they would put up a game battle. It was decided before the men took their places in the ring that the tight should be clean breaks, with no hitting In the clinches. Murphy Is a hot headed little Irishman who Is afraid of nothing aud he hates to IBS the white feather shown on any occasion. Well, the oolored lads were called to the middle of tbe ring and told What they wore expected to do. The tight commenced and in the Hist round scarcely a blow WSJ struck. The fighters' actions made Murphy sore, and be announced be fore the beginning of the second rounr that the men would have to fight or ho would take a cltrb and beat their beads off. Murphy bus promised the club before which the men were spar ring a good windup and he didn't young pitchers should seek to master —they should never grow careless in their delivery, but try to be able to put the ball over the plate whenever it becomes necessary. Another thing, they should never try to split the plate, but to put the ball over one cor ner at the hardest possible an gle for the batsman to hit." Mr. Young advises temperance, regular habits, and constant prac tice as essentials for players who hope to attain more than ephemer al success on the diamond. propose "to spoil his repuation for a couple of dinges," as he called them. Tho second round came and went and again the fighters were without a scratch or bruise aud Murphy was crazy. As tho lighters took their places for the third round apparently little moved by the threats of Murphy, who was refereeing, they were told it would be their last chance. They started off to stall again and Murphy reached over to the outside of the ring and grabbed a chair. He hit Kid Fitzgerald, one of the colored lads, a wallop on the side of the head and he went down and out, and before the other man could get out of the ring Murphy hit him and the money was returned to the pro moters. Both men were lying pros trate on the ground when the spec tators interfered. In other words, there had been two knockouts and the referee bad landed them both. It was on the whole the worst case of bluff and stall I have ever heard of, and I have heard about and seen a lot of poor work. Mcdonald HAS QUIT Dune Mac Donald of Butte has left for the government camp near Cody, Wyo., where he has a con tract to feed and lodge 700 me n on i big improvement which Uncle Sam Is making in that state. Dune has quit the athletic Held and tbe fighting game for good. He says he has boon worrying away at it for a generation and it is time to call a halt. The wear and tear and worry of jumping sideways to cater to the whims of prize lighters with prima donna nerves has caused -lost of his gray hairs to sprout, ho says.

This is untrue and the Ice trust knows it. Why did the trust force the Cook's Spring Water Ice company out of the Spokane markeet, if the supply of ice was not sufficient to meet the local demands? Because the trust, imbued with the greed of other monopolies, would not brook competition. ' The Cook's Spring Water Ice company, conducted by Francis H. Cook, the pioneer, was in the ice manufacturing business on a small scalee. Last summer it sold pure ice in Spokane for 50 cents a hun dred pounds, which was 25 cents lower than the trust price. This winter Mr. Cook was pre pared to harvest a considerable crop of ice. But representatives of the Diamond Ice & Fuel company, the ice octopus, went to Mr. Cook and told him that if he dared to manufacture ice and attempt to sell any of it the trust would sell ice this summer in Spokane for 25 cents a hundred pounds. Believing that the trust would he as good as ,its word Mr. Cook was forced out of the Ice business. , Simply to pay dividends to avaricious stockholders must the people of Spokane pay 1 cent a pound for ice tins summer, more HIS HONOR OR THE LADY? CHAPTER 11. Coming down the street with a roar that rudely '••hattered the peaceful calm of tbe descending nlghl were a pair of horses running away. In the vehicle they were drawing a young woman crouched, her hair Hying in the breeze and a look of terror in her eyes. She clung to the reins and tried in vain to stay the flight of the maddened animals. As the carriage swayed from side to side a thrill of horror ran through the onlookers, and many turned away, fearful ol seeing her crushed beneath the wreckage of the vehicle. Claude Hafford stoid just on line of the eourrse the f rightenol ani mals were following. His lips won' tightly closed and th"re was a look of grim determination in his eyes Tbe other members of bis team ■nouted to him to *'.')t risk an at tempt to stay tho course of the runaways. "Look out. Hafford. they cried. ■•Don't be a fool," yelled Captain Davis. Hafford made no answer, hut be fore the horses reached him he be gan tO run in the fame direction they were going. Fleet of foot ami fearless, be was running almost as fast as the horses when tlu y finally overtook hi m. Shouting to the young woman not to leap, but to held the horses straight down the igeet, Hafford closed in and man aged to grali the bridle of tne sea reft animal, but in doing so he trip,v I and tell almost under the |)aUM) 8 hoofs. A cry of horror U' x si> from the ferried onlookers .\Vj:'.: the desperation of one in give a good idea of conditions in the stricken city. No matinee per formance of the pictures will be giveen tomorrow afternoon, when the Douglas company gives Its reg ular matinee performance.

When the branen is completed it is expected that the Burlington will divide its service between the Great Northern and Northern Pacific. deadly perial, Hafford clunm to the j bridle, and though ''p was unable to draw himself to his feet, the weight of his body pulled the horse's head downward and the team began to slacken their spetd. Blood was oozing from a cut in his forehead, when- a buckle on the harness had cut a cruel gash. As the horses gradually slackened their speed the young woman steadied them with the reins and her voice until they came to a dead stop. Hafford'a hold on the bridle loosened and he fell to the ground where the blood flowing from his temple gave him a vastly appear ance before willing hands lifted him up and carried him to the hotel, The young woman was assisted from tbe carriage and the team! driven away by a men in the crowd A doctor was hastily summoned. After a long visit ir> the room of the ball player he came out with a troubled look in his eyes. How is Hafford?" asked Capt. Davis, "is he badly hurt? Will he pitch tomorrow?"
