CHAMPION GIRL PITCHER
HAS CANNONBALL CURVES MISS ALT A WEISS AND SNAPSHOT OF HER PITCHING BALL \'l , ij\.iti r rrvxr / \ o ~00 . ~ —* i.. in. * VERMILLION, 0., Sept. 23.— The champion girl pitcher of Amer ica is Miss Alta Weiss, of the semi professional ball team, of this place. Can a woman throw straight? You bet this little woman can! Just a slip of a girl and frail look ing, Miss Alta has pitched for Ver million against the strongest semi professional teams of the state, and she won her game every time. ■She has a record of striking out IB men In one game and never al lows her opponents more lhan six Or seven hits. Often she holds them OOWII to four or five. Superb control is her forte. She Seldom pastel a batter, and In ad dition to rifle-like speed, has a fine assortment of shoots and curves. Not only Is she a pitcher of ex traordinary ability, <nnt a clever lhatter. She stands close to the plate and makes the pitcher put them over. She refuses to bite on wide ones, and hen she goes after the ball does so with a quick, sharp stab that would make ruanv WAUKESHA On Tule Lake Great Health and Summer Resort The Greatest Chance for Investment Ever Offered the Public We Will Sell the Balance of Lots This Week for the Small Price of $25 Each Until Saturday Eve., Sept. 21, 1907 Come Early and get your choice.

Miss Weiss plays In a gymna sium suit, the skirt reaching to her ankles. This is a handicap every ball player can appreciate, and next season she will adopt either a bloomer suit or short skirts. Nev ertheless, she fields her position admirably. The showy windup of many pro fessional pitchers is conspicuous by its absence, when Miss Weiss works. 'She waste no time, 'but shoots the ball to the plate over hand or underhand, with no hesita tion. Base runners have little chance to steal on the clever girl pitcher. Steamer Tellus went ashore and broke in two at the entrance to Grays harbor. She was loaded with $20,(100 worth of coal. TRACTION CARS GO TO FAIR Take East Broadway Traction cars leaving Wall and Riverside every live minutes direct for Inter state fair grounds. Theaters BPOKANE | A packed house enjoyed a splendid evening with "The Time, the Place and the Girl" last night. The piece is an opera-comedy melodrama combination, with mu sic and comedy predominating, and probably the happiest production that will materialize this season. The action runs the gamut from rich repartee and pointed slang to excellent singing. Tonight and to morrow night are the remaining dates. The Spokane theater bill for Wednesday and Thursday even ings is "The Mayor of Tokio," a Japanese production with spectacu lar features, that has run up to the head of the comic opera list this season. It is recommended as one of the best Richard Carle has turned out, and is staged to the fullest demands of the piece. AUDITORIUM. A house packed to the doors greeted Jessie Shirley last night on her reappearance in the leading part of "When Knighthood Was in Flower." Flowers and repeated re calls deluged the popular star and her company. Notwithstanding the fact that the play is one that re quires far more than a week's preparation the company handled the big production well. George McQuarrie supported Miss Shirley as the hero of the play. The pro duction was especially staged. COLUMBIA. The house was entirely sold out last nlgbt for the Curtlss com pany's opening production of the week's bill, "Heart of Maryland." In acting and staging the com pany offered an excellent produc tion at popular prices. Adelaide Knight gratified her friends in the star role, and Russell Lee Barrett also appeared to advantage in the principal male role. The play this week is a benefit for Company H, N. G. W. It is a happy hit, both for the theater and the soldier boys. WASHINGTON. The vaudeville bill this week de veloped several strong numbers. I.ady Francis Hope is there in comic songs and stories, but her ladyship fails to stampede the rest of the bill. The Hassani Trio do a complicated stunt in balancing, and Faust Bros, spring a good com bination of music and acrobatics. Old Tom Ward still makes good in a finished manner in the minstrel line. May with her juvenile company also comes in for special mention. THIS WEL'K ENDS IT The Northwest league baseball season ends this week with Spo kane playing at Tacoma. Butte Seattle and Aberdeen at Vancou ver. Many players plan to keep in condition this winter by playing In the California league of six clubs, composed of San Diego, Ix>s Angeles. Santa Barbara, I'asadena and two other towns. The only cinches In the league are Vancouver at the tail and Aberdeen under the wire. Tho end will come witli the leaders playing the tallenders. The only fight is between Butte and Spokane. Both these teams are up against hard game and will do well to break even on their series. NATIONAL LEAGUE Cincinnati 1-2.
