Not only horses —the fastest on the turf —but brainy fair experts identified with different departments of big fairs tTTe country over, each plays a part In making the local enter prise the well rounded whole it is.

Huhe Wad dell figures with Kaymond. of course, while Hack McFarland is the collaborator with Papke iv his little story. Papke had an awful argument with Packy McFarland in Chicago one day. "Which Is the most useful, the sun or the moon?" asked Hilly. "Why, the moon, of course," re plied Packy. "How do you make that out?" asked Hilly. "Why," said Packy, "the moon shines at night when everything is dark and lights things up so that you can see, but the sun comes out In daytime when It Isn't needed."

The record is 98 games won, set by Detroit last year. About the time Prof. Garner gets his anthropoidal apes talking, it will be hard to tell whether it's a chimpanzee or Kid Broad speaking, on a dark night. They may charge Tommy Burns with being a Canuck, but Tommy brought his family all the way from Australia, that the latest Burns, born a few days ago, might arrive under the stars and stripes. Seat tle is now T. B.s home. That throwing wing of Fred Clarke's must be in pretty fair shape, when he can go out and get a world's record with four assists. Heinie Zimmerman, all all round handy man of the Cubs, may be seen in center permanently next season. Circus Solly Hoffman is expected to play rtrst, vice Chance, who wants to become a bench man ager. If the coterie of dissatisfied ones has its own sweet way, one Tom Lynch will be entitled to pose as "late incumbent" after the next an nual meeting of the National league. Billy Evans and Bob Ems lie are said to be slated as the arbitrators for Tex Richard's all star aggrega tion. Someone asked Ketchell in San Francisco why he didn't get a man ager who knew the game. "What do I want of a manager?" replied Steve. "I want a guy with a bank roll, and Mizncr has one." Now that Stanley Ketchell is really known to be in poor health, his four-flushing "manager," Wil- Did Williams Beat Kelly's Spokane Record? NEW YORK, Sept. 7.—A hundred yards In nine seconds flat: This Is the feat timers and witnesses say Richard Terry Williams, physical director and coach of tho Berkeley school, New York, accomplished at Xew Lyme, Mass., late In August. A hundred yards in nine seconds! If Williams actually sprinted the distance in that time he reached a goal which clenched fists, pounding hearts, bursting lungs, spring steel muscles and Iron determinations have struggled for In vain since the days of the Greeks. Williams clipped three-fifths of a second off the official A. A. U. 100 yard sprint record made by Dan .1. Kelly at Spokane, Wash., June 81, 180S, Three fifths of a second! What is that? The quiver of an eyelash, the twinkling of a star, a heartbeat, the flutter of a bird's wing . Hut it's a great deal. Let Williams and Kelly race 100 ! yards, each running the distance In i his own best time, Kelly in 9 3-5 I seconds. Williams iv 9 flat. Both runners leap luto the sir at the crock of the pistol. They come down I the Stretch blurred by their speed. THE SPOKANE PRESS STANDING OF NORWtWEST LEAGUE Won. Loot. P.C. m Won. Loat. P.C.

The game should be more interesting to watch next week, how ever, when Vancouver will have one last chance to haul down that eight-game lead. Ty Cobb figures that Connie Mack's bunch will be able to beat the Cubs in the world's series. H> dopes it out like this because he says Eddie Plank will win two games, and Mender and Coombs ought to be good for at least another couple. Fighting George Stallings of the Yankees picks the Athletics, too, on account of their superior flinging staff. Joe Jeanette put up a game light against Sam I.angford at Ros ton last night, but the Beggar had shade iv almost all of the IB rounds, and was justly given the decision. _ *»»•*• The University of Chicago boys were in Spokane yesterday until late at night, but the rain prevented the scheduled game with the Hazelwoods. A banquet was given at Davenport's in the evening and the bunch left for Everett at 7:45, where two games will be played today. Governor Hay's game commission, with E. C.

Hut Williams breaks the tape when Kelly has still 18 feet 9 inches to go—half the width of a city lot. That's what a heart heat, three fifths of a second, is iv the 100 yurd dash. Williams had to cross 23 feet 4 inches each time a watch's second hud moved. Williams made the record in the presence of a small gallery of Fine tlrove, Mass., summer residents on the track at the state camp grounds. Two men with stop watches caught the time at nine seconds flat. The watches agreed. The track Is level and straight. No wind was blowing. The A. A. V. will not accept the record, made unofficially as It was. Later, at some of the authorized meets, Williams will be given the opportunity to run an official 100 yards, He is confident of making the official record, for he claims to have run the hundred in 9 1-5 sev eral times In practice. Williams claims to have lowered other sprint ing and jumping records In unof ficial trials. He Is 36 years old, 5 feet 10% Inches tall, weighs 165 pounds. This summer he wus phys ical director of the New Loudon vacation schools. IRON MAN "WALKS" TO WORK AND BACK NEW YORK. Sept. 7—Charles Guest Norris, an English engineer, is over here with a new "iron man" which he has invented. He calls It an "iron man" because it can "walk." It is said to be a great invention, but aside from walking, it has no resemblance to a man. It will walk around the corner with a dozen tons of tools and ma chinery. It has four legs, and will walk in water as well as on ground. When stationary, the back forms a level platform from which work may be done. The "walking" is accomplished by two frameworks, one within the other, each having four legs. One frame slide forward and the legs are lowered. Then the legs of the other frame are lifted up and that other frame, or platform, slides forward and the legs rest again oo the ground. And so, ad infinitum.

OCT. 3d to 9th World's Series Stars—No.3 Some days ago Chicago news papers took cognizance of the fact that Frank Chance was coaching the Cubs in a new game, to offset the Athletics when the teams meet in the post-season series. R. H. E. AH season the Cubs have been winning their games by playing the most highly developed game of scientific base ball presented to the fans by any organization. When it became practically as sured the Cubs would win the pennant, Chance changed his style of play. The sacrifice was for the moment forgotten and the players were told to "hit It out."
