MR. DURYEA IS A DANDY.
"Gentle James" Pitches a Game in Which the Ean Claire Nine Gees Down Without a Run. He is Supported Brilliantly by Eight Other Dandies, Who Gather In Every thing Coming Their Way Milwaukee and Oshkosh Flay the Long est Game Contested in This Country for Several Years. Standing of the Teams in the Various Leagues— The Races On the Card at Hamline To-Day. JI. YEA pitched a plendid game yester lay, and no pitcher ver had better sup tort. The Eau Claire aen went to bat thirty mc times, but four nore than they were ibliged to, and only hree were left onbases. ["here was nevermore ban one man on a base, me reaching third, ___- ther second and the tther dying on first, .very man in the St. *"aul team fielded in crand form, and the inly skip of any kind nam was a passed iall by Stock well which tllowed Brennan to each second in the ighth inning. The irettiestplay ever seen on the grounds was that which wound up the game. In the last half of the ninth inning Lowe led off with a pretty line hit to center field. Cross went out on a pop up to second. Quest then took up the willow and hit the second ball pitched him a terrible whack, which sent it between center and right fields. Everybody thought it good for at least three bases, but Murphy went for it with a burst of speed which sent him under it in time. Lowe by this time had got around to third and was easily doubled up. Cleveland's play at third was brilliant, his three splendid assists in the second inning bringing out a storm of applause. Stockwell and McCauley each made a pretty catch in the sixth inning. For the visitors the pretty catch of a line fly from Murphy's bat in the eighth inning nipped a two-base hit in the bud. Heardon's pitching was not bad, but his support at times was not good, especially in the third and sixth innings. THK ______ opened at 3:25 in the presence of 3,500 people, St. Paul first going to bat. Murphy was retired on a foul fly to left and Wilmot took two bags on his drive to right and stole third. Cleveland's double to left brought him home and Stockwell went out on a fly to first. In the third inning, after Duryea had thrown up the sponge on a fly to right, Murphy got a present of a base, stole second, went to third on Wilmot's hit to right and stole home. McCauley went out from second to first, Cleveland reached first on a fumble at third and was advanced to thirdon Lowe's muff of Stock-well's fly, AYilmot scoring. Pickett ended the inning on an out from third to first. In the fourth inning, after Crooks had been retired from short to first, Sowders took a base on balls— something almost unprecedented for him— stole second, and scored on Murphy's hit to center field. In the sixth inning, after Crooks had gone out on a fly to right, Sowders and Duryea made singles to left, were advanced a base on a passed ball, and Murphy was presented with a base. The bases were full and one man out. Wilmot struck at the first ball pitched, tipped it and was nipped by Brennan. McCauley's hit to left and an error by the catcher let in three men, McCauley going to sec ond. The latter was brought in by Cleveland's hit to left. After this St. Paul did not get a man on bases. Sul livan umpired his first game in" St. Paul and gave excellent satisfaction. His judgment on balls and strikes seems to be particularly good.

FINEST OF THE, YEAR. A Remarkable Game Between Oshkosh and Milwaukee. Special to the Globe. Milwaukee, Wis., July 3. — For three hours and a half the Milwaukee and Oshkosh clubs did battle to-day, Milwaukee finally winning in the sev enteenth inning. During the last twelve innings Smith pitched grandly, and the Oshkosh hitters were able to get but four hits off him, including one base on balls in this time. The wildest of en thusiasm prevailed after the last Osh kosh man was retired and victory was assured for the home team. Krock pitched in fine form for Oshkosh and was well supported, but the Milwaukees won by bunching three hits in the last inning. Both nines played brilliantly, and were evidently trying their hardest to win. The fielding of Hull, Strauss, Roussey, Doran ana Burns were the features of the game. Curry the new umpire, made an exorable showing, and was continually hooted by the crowd. His decisions favored Oshkosh uuiform ally.

STANDING OF THE TEAMS. St. Paul Still Unable to Overtake Milwaukee. St. Paul has yet succeeded in over taking Milwaukee, in fact the former is not so good a second as a week ago. The St. Paul team, however, has probably done the most remarkable fielding the past week that any base ball aggrega tion ever did. Seven regular counting league games have been played with but a total of nine errors, an average of a trifle over one to the game." Three of the seven games were entirely errorless. The team, however, has lost four of the seven games through bad luck. Such work will win in the end. The croak ers have again commenced picking out the weak spots in the team, but the Globe hopes Manager Barnes will pay no attention to their wailing. Changes at this time should not be made. Ihe team is good enough for the present just ! as it stands. Other* teams are making j changes, and some of them are probably ! for the better, but swapping players in j the middle of the season is very dan gerous business. Saturday's telegraphic news contained an item saying that Mr. j Sawyer, of Oshkosh, had purchased ; four players of the Bridgeport, Conn., I club. This is a good example, and the j (.lobe predicts that the new players j will bring not strength but discord, and that while the Oshkosh team as consti- ' tuted at the beginning of the season ! had an excellent chance of winning the | pennant, the new aggregation will get j no better than fourth or fifth place. j Minneapolis will probably pull into I third place in the next ten days. The j people of La Crosse are evidently not . giving their team as cordial support as it merits. It has played a great many | close games and come in second, bit it . has generally done pretty fielding ;.nd I strong batting, and merits better treat- ! ment than it is getting.

Van Haltren's Debut in Chicago Commented On. Theevent the past week in the Na tional league was the debut of Van Hal tren, the California wonder, in Chicago. The young man had the misfortune to run against an incompetent umpire last Monday, the first day of his appearance, and sixteen bases on balls were counted up against him, the Boston team thus securing an easy victory. The rest of the week, however, the new pitcher showed up in fine form, and on Satur day he retired the Washington aggrega tion with no hits worth mentioning. Van Haltren, besides being a great pitcher, touches up the ball with the willow in a way to immensely please a Chicago audieuce. With Van Haltren, Baldwin and Clarksou as pitchers, it is even now pretty safe to wager that the pennant of 1887 will fly from the same flagstaff as that of 1880. Beginning to-day New York will play a series in Chicago and Boston one in De troit. It is expected that both the East erners will go down at least twice in three games, and it would not be sur prising to see Boston lose three. De troit still holds a good lead, and has nothing to fear except its old-time rival, Chicago. Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Wash ington and Indianapolis are already virtually out of the race, and will doubt less end the season in their present order.

Standing of the Teams on the Eve of the Fourth. It is no longer a matter of doubt which of the American association teams will come out ahead. St. Louis will take the pennant unless a railway accident obliterates the club. The con test for the other positions, however, is very spirited. Baltimore, Cincinnati, Brooklyn, Louisville and Athletic all want to be second, with the chances considerably in favor of the first named. The Mets and Cleveland have on a pretty fight for last place, and one has about as good a chance to secure it as the other.

Louisville, Ky., July Notwith standing the threatening weather, a crowd of about 4,000 people was present when the game between St. Louis and Louisville was called to-day. Hudson and Boyle and Ramsey and Kerins were the batteries respectively for the visit ors and home club. The Browns were first at the bat, and went -out in one, two, three order. For Louisville, Browning started the ball rolling by making a home run after two men had been put out. Four runs followed be fore the nine was retired, Hudson being hammered viciously. In the second inning St. Louis scored one ruu by the aid of some loose playing by Louisville. It began sprinkling lightly in the latter half of the inning after Louisville had scored two runs and demonstrated that it • would knock Hudson out of the box., if..- the game continued.

Baltimoke, Md., July s.— This has «' always been a good base ball town, but the people are just wild over the na tional game this season. The owners of i the Baltimore club are making piles of money. The latest fad in fashionable circles is a club composed of nine of the prettiest girls in town. | The fathers of several of the fair players own hand- i some country places near town and each has a well laid out ground, with the bases marked and the pitcher's. place i clearly defined. On these grounds the ] pretty ball players, free from the vulgar < ease of the opposite sex, enjoy the game | to their hearts' content. They call themselves Baltimore's Beauty Base Ball l club. All of them wear gloves when handling the ball and several of them i have become good batters. The first i game played was with a picked nine of I Baltimore county maidens, whom the ! Baltimore beauties first taught how to play and then beat them by a score of i 23 to 17. Another match has been ar ranged. No gentlemen are permitted to 1 see the games, and the only accounts of the enjoyable affairs obtainable are 1 those furnished by lady spectators.

New York Sun. - 1 "I prefer simple dishes well cooked," said my friend as we sat down to din ner.' "I have given the subject a great deal of thought, and have traveled so much that I have become almost an anchorite in the matter of eating. If 1 have a weakness it is dietetics. .•"'--''] "There is this about food: in point of quantity, without regard to quality, the dwellers in the extreme north claim pre-eminence. An Esquimaux will eat * twenty pounds of meat per diem, lubricating the mass with as much oil as he can swallow; yet a Ton gouse will go twety pounds better, for he can get away with forty pounds "pi reindeer meet in the same space of time. Both of them blush for their feeble pow ers when they see three Yakutes demol ish a whole reindeer at one sitting, and rise apparently none the worse for the feed. ' :, : .y f ; . ; "The greatest luxury a Greenlander can enjoy is half putrid whale's tail; with a relish of the gum of . the proper kind from the same animal. Our Dr. Kane was much pleased with the walrus liver. He wondered that we didn't eat raw beef, a practice, by the way, not unknown to many of our German citi zens, who will snap up a piece from a butcher's block whenever they can hon estly do so. Whale meat must possess attractive qualities, although 1 could never discover them, because old whale men commonly partake of it. To a sen sitive palate it has a very rank flavor. The a. B seamen in the whaling ships make it into force-meat balls, to remind them, perhaps, of the fish balls of Maine or New Hampshire. i "Porpoise meat was once a favored dish with the old English nobility, at least so runs the story, which declares the proper sauce to have been com pounded of sugar, vinegar and bread crumbs. The trapper in the far North loves beaver tail" and bear's paw. and quite right he is. In arctic regions eat- ' ing is no easy matter; everything is so hard that good teeth are as necessrry as . sharp knives, while drinking requires care, else the glass may become part of the lip. In those frigid parts you eat your rum and chew your brandy. If fish is to be served up there it has first to be caught, then thawed, before being swallowed. Experience can alone re veal the secret of the Esquimaux's love for a nice greasy, yielding tallow can dle, and of the •lingering sweetness long drawn out' as he pulls the wick gently between his teeth, so as not to lose one particle of its flavor, "The Australasian is rather odd in the matter of dietetics. One New-Hol lander I saw dispose of more than a hundred vaulting rats at one repast, swallowing them, for the most -part, with some of the hair still upon them, holding them by their tails and biting the bodies off with his teeth. Not to be wasteful, he afterwards disposed of the tails. The same innocent children of Nature affect stale shark, rancid whale blubber, earthworms, and such trifles. Kangaroo tad is a dish an Australasian ______ much flavor in. It is delicious. The natives highly esteem the silent but wild dingo, neither do they turn up their . noses at rats, but gluttony is al lied to rudeness. The black fellow, when at meals, devours all he can, only now and then flinging a morsel over his shoulder to his wife and children. He is likewise improvident, for he seeks food only when he craves it. gorges to the last possible tension of his dirty, black skin, and then sleeps for several days and nights consecutively;. Eating in the Australian bush, by white folk, Is sadly marred by flies, fleas and the yellow bottle, supplemented by mos quitoes, compared to which New Jersey ones are but sucklings. u-^Zk "Coming to South America, the Otto macs are the oddest people. They sub sist entirely on a fat and ferruginous kind of clay, each man eating dally a pound or more. The Indians of the Amazon eat a kind of loam, preferring it to other and decidedly better food. ! I have seen them do it. The Peruvians are also, clay eaters, their Hiess being a, mixture of taie and mica— rather tough food, even for Peru. Other nations are earth eaters— the inhabitants of New Guinea, some of the Bolivians, the ne groes of Jamaica and the natives of New Caledonia, as well as many people who dwell in Siam, Siberia and Kamshatka. The Ottomacs, however, are the only ones who subsist on clay when other food is obtainable. "In Africa I found diet as various as the people, and such trifles as blue mole, mice, fat sheep's tails, stewed puppies, puma, baked elephant's trunk and feet, ostrich eggs, ants stewed in butter, cat erpillars, roasted spiders, snails (eight inches long), and odd articles not gen erally regarded as food are consumed. "When the natives of the West Indies are regarded from a dietetic standpoint, baked snakes glide into the menu along with palm-worms (a finger long), fried in their own fat; yet these colored gourmands cannot abide a rabbit stew ! •Rats are there also considered a nice side ' dish, with occasional relishes of gecana eggs and palm-tree snout beetles. Sounds nasty, doesn't it? "In those Asiatic countries where I have been, the palate can be disgusted or tickled with no end of curious dishes. We know how ingenious the Chinese are in their cusine, finding delight in half-hatched eggs, sharks' fins and maws, fowls' ami ducks' tongues, dogs' hindquarters, rat soup, soup made from the nests of the Hirundoeseulento. and, as an appetizer, the chrysalis of the silk worm after the silk has been wound from it. "In Siam the dried sinews of various animals form a dish much liked. I found it very good. Alligators' eggs are eaten in many Eastern countries, and a nastier dish it would be hard to imagine. Ants enter largely into Ori ental bills of fare, and in Ceylon the busy bee is masticated by the very men who have profited by the honey it has made. "In the Antilles a lizard very often is the piece de resistance at a native feast, yet they will not touch the toothsome young alligator. The manatee's tail is a staple diet in Honduras. This is not bad eating. "At the Falkland islands a gourmet can enjoy a new sensation by eating a sea I on's tongue. It is excellent, but it must be fresh. Trinidad prides itself on alligator ami turtle eggs. The best place, however, for everything relating to turtle (next to Fulton market) is the Isle of Ascension. There they are bred, fed ami from there exported. • ' j "Snails are eaten everywhere. The French are great believers in them as ii succulent dish. The European -market is mostly supplied from the -naileries! of the Isle of Crete, where they are cul tivated secundem- art em, and one kind is specially prepared, being fattened upon strawberries, for consumptives. "The Javanese are fond of tlyius fox! The dessert of the Chinese middle classes consists of melon pips, the scar let and yellow varieties being growij solely for their seed. I j "Out in Central America the stately curasson and the ■alter quam. both large birds, are diligently hunted as table del icacies, yet the first-named biped must not be eaten by the hunter's dog, for it will surely poison it. -' i • ' "To these may be added the gibnet, or tepesquinta, the peccary, and the In dian rabbit: all acceptable- additions to that larder, which is further enriched by baboons and monkeys. The last named, however, when roasted, look like small babies, yet they taste de liriously. , .:..•: "Hippophagy has not made many con verts, although it has a large number of advocates. They, perhaps, do not prac tice "what they preach, and only drive horses onto other people's tables with out indulging in equine repasts as their own. In Madgeburg some years ago a friend of mine saw a foal of the value of $100 put on as the central dish at a mar riage feast, the cost being more esteemed than the meat. "Those are some of the reasons why I prefer simple -' dishes," concluded my friend, and at the same time our dinner came to an end. •— m — - • ' i • V ' "---j : ' - .- - ■ ■ - , Slaves .Were Not Profitable.

"There was probably not a Catholic priest in the Philadelphia archdiocese who did not feel a sense of relief at the announcement of the death -of Father McGovern last week," ' said a clergyman who attended the funeral "of that priest at St. Malachi's church Friday."l do not mean to' say, "he contin ued, with a smile, "that we are so heart less as to rejoice at the death of one of our number; but when I tell you that when one priest dies in this archdiocese it usually has occurred that two others follow in a short time, you can under stand what 1 mean. Father Mc- Govern was the third priest who was buried in this city within the last two weeks. Pev. Dr. O'Connor, pastor of St. Michael's church, was the first, and the dap after his fun eral the Key- John Cox was drowned in the Delaware river. So strong has this conviction become among the clergymen that if any of them are feeling unwell when a priest dies the announcement will: always affect their health. I can recall an instance of this character which came near costing the life of a leading priest. Some years ago a clergyman was afflicted with dangerous, though not necessarily fatal, disease. He was a fair way of. recovery when a rector of a church up town yielded up the ghost. The news affected the sick man so much that he took to his bed. A second clergyman died. Our sick friend felt he would be called upon to make the third, and prepared for death. He rap idly grew worse, and it seemed only a matter of a few hours when lie would join the silent majority. I called upon him one day. He looked weak and emaciated, and could talk only with dif ficulty. After speaking some cheering words, I 'said: "That was sad about Father '— '■ — -.' 'What has happened to him?' gasped the invalid. "He was stricken with heart disease.' I replied. An unusually bright light shone from the eyes of the sick man, and catching me by the hand, he said: 'Why, that makes the third.' From that moment he improved, and to-day looks as though lie would like for the next fifty years." "Strange, isn't it?" said the priest. "0, no; it is not superstition. It is merely a remarkable coincidence that can not be explained." i' > -. t£: '-' "*" " Tobacco in the White House. Boston Citizen. J. Mr. Cleveland is developing a love for cigars which has already caught the attention of the newspaper paragrapher." There is something about life in the White house and in Washington which seems to stimulate the cacoethes fiimandi, although Mr. Hayes was not Affected by it. But he was proof against this and other "wanities." The taste grows cultured, too. in the White house atmosphere, and Mr. Cleveland is said to have discarded the "two for a Quarter" variety for a : much costlier article. Gen. Grant was able to grat ify his love for the weed at little or no tax upon his $50,000 a year. So many of his friends were desirous of making him presents, and his fond ness for cigars was so universally known that the express companies were kept busy delivering him boxes of the choicest brands. I know of one gift to him of a box of 100 which cost the donor $145— 50, at least, the latter told me. I thought this was about tbe highest price ever paid for such goods, but the gentle man assured me that he had himself smoked cigars which had cost him $1.75 apiece. _He had done so accidentally, however, for it was far from his disposi tion to be so extravagant. : The gift to Gen. Grant came about in this way. My informant, a merchant of | means, was about to visit the general in camp dur ing f the closing I days . of | the - war i and thought a box jof fine cigars i would be appreciated as a delicate courtesy. Ac cordingly, he called upon a cigar dealer near his residence and requested him to j get the best box of cigars within reach. .
