STANDING OF THE CLUBS.
' With two men clown in the opening
Inning of the final game of the series be
tween. Charles H. Dudley's Hanover In
dependents and the Bitrre Athletic club,
the collegians got to Davidson and
pounded out three hits, aided by a base
on balls, which resulted in their two
tallies in a D to 2 defeat. Davidson then
struck his gait and mowed his opponents
down in a manner that pleased over
four hundred admirers tf the Barre team.
He had the visitors guessing the remain
der of the game ,as they hit four balls throw,
out of the infield, two of which were Tjle'
clean base hits.
Weare. who held the local team to a
ix-inning tie in the afternoon game Me
morial day, was sent to the firing line
bv the sporting goods man. He was not
so effective as he was on his initial ap
pearance. The Bivrre club dented his
servings . with viciousness , when hits
meant runs. He had an excellent curve,
but did not have the necessary steam
to check swatters of the calibre of the
Burre club.
The strain of the last three game
played by the teams told on the players,
wno seemed to nave lost ineir accus
tomed snap. The Barre club fielded clean
ly, only having ona error, while the New
Hampshire bunch played loose when not
at bat. AV. Johnston, Barre's star third
Mcker, who is the most consistent player
on the team, turned in a spotless field
ing score at the end of the game. The
old Spaulding man accepted nine chances
without a slip-up. He made eight as
sists, many of which were scooped up ou
the run. Taplin was sent behind the but
in the fifth inning, relieving Fowlie,
whose left hand was badly swollen, after
catching Malcolm the day before. TIip
elongated East Barre boy found no diffi
culty in holding the Barre twirler.
- Nute, Tonguay and Davidson were the
leaders in the afternoon's hitting. The
former slammed out three safeties ami
the last two connected for two each.
Roland, Dudley's third baseman, wss the
only man who managed to fathom the
eurves of the local moundsman. He sen
out two clean drives.
With two out in the initial round,
Roland hit safely to left Rnd advanced to
second when Bernstein was passed. Niles
prodded to right, and Roland counted.
Bernstein made third on the play and
Nile the middle station. Phimmer sent
the big first baseman in with a neat
hit to left. Davidson tightened and
fanned Norris.
Tonguav reached the initial sack in
the second on Roland's blunder, took
second on the pitcher's blind attempt to
catch him napping, and slipped to third
wnen rowiie nit to leit. Jiotti runners
crossed the threshold on their slabster's
two-bagger over left eld fence. Nute
cored his pitcher on a clean drive to the
fence.
In the third, R. Johnston rapped out
safe one to left, swiped second an'
wormed to third on a fielder's choice.
McKenzie was passed. Tonguay came
long with a timely hit over second, R.
Johnston and AVnght tallying. Fowlie
was safe on the shortstop's error. Mai
terminated at the plate on Davidson's
fielder's choice. The Barre team now
assumed a commanding lead and glided
along the rest of the distance without
danger, augmenting their score by two
more counters. . The score:

has a powerful arm and an accurate
local team pulled off as fast
double play in the fourth inning as has
been seen here for some time. AV. John
ston was the starter, Stuart the media
tor, and AA'right completed the play.
Plum,mer was on first when Norris
rapped a grounder to AV. Johnston.
Roland played ft fine game, at third for
the visitors. He was the strongest man
with the club on the Hanover aggrega
tion. He hit safely in the three games.
"Bill" Stuart had an off day at the
bat. The Snaulding slugger succumbed
to the curves of AA'eare four out of five
times. Probably Bill's mind was wan
dering to some of the finals that he has
to undergo this week.
The rejuvenated "Bob"' AA'right, many
times a comeback, whom the judges of
the high court of baseball have pro
scribed from the ranks of the national
game many times to give way to the
younger element in this city, was ous
in uniform Saturday. His playing was a
revelation to the spectators. I he old
man accepted eighteen chances without a
slip-up. At the bat, although out of
practice, he knocked out one safe hit,
being robbed of another.
In the fifth round, Alex. McKenzie
came around with the best fielding stunt
of the game. Roland landed on one of
Davidson's shoots and sent it on a lim
for deep center field. Mac started back
with the crack of the hat and pulled the
ball down from over his shoulder. The
catch was as pretty a one as has been
seen on the campus this season.

Inability to connect with Pomerlean
southpaw slant when bits were badly
needed and reckless base running lost the
Italian A. C. a 3 to 2 game to St. An
selm's college of Manchester, N. 11., at
the Berlin street grounds Saturday after
noon. It was one of the best games of
the season, snappily played and with fea
tures enough to keep the interest of the
fair-sized crowd of enthusiasts. In fact,
it was one of the few games that have
furnished an argument fur the fast home
bunch.
AA'eaferi was cm the mound for the
A. C. and was touched up for ten
safe swats, the hits being bunched by the
collegiuns in the fourth, fifth and sixth
linings; but otherwise the home siinger
was strong. He was given splendid sup
port by his teammates, one catch of Bot
tigi in particular being a hair-raiser
The catch came in the fifth, when the
visitors were getting to AA'eaferi, three
safe raps having been made, one run
having been scored, another just nipped
at the plate and another in prospect
with the runner n second. Holcomb was
up, and he hit a short fly to left. Bot
tigi started with the crack of the bat,
and seeing that he was likely to lose
the ball he gave a dive just as it was
striking the ground, scooping it up and
rolling on his neck but still clinging to
the ball.
Both teams had chances to score early.
n the first inning AA'eaferi and Coraolli
mgled with two down, only to be leit
when Soldini struck out. Again in the
second Giacamuxzi drew a pass and Bot
tigi was hit by the ball, and they worked
double steal aided bv dummy worK on
the part of the visitors; but there they
were left, as AA'illiams flied to left and
Tonazzi hit into double play, driving
the ball at the shortstop, who hurk-u
to third.
The third was another chapter of lost
pportunities for the locals, as, with one
down, Calcagni was treated kindly, being
sent to first on a free ticket, stealing
second when the collegians were taking
nan and going to third when the pitch
er had a brainstorm and tossed the ball
Harry as he perched on the second
bag. Calcagni ducked the throw and
scooted for third. Pornerlean's brain-
torm continued when he passed AA'ea
feri; but he revived enough to send Co-
molli and Sojdini back to the bench on
measly little pokes In front of the plate.
St. Anselm s was dangerous in the
second, when they clustered two singles,
ut. AA eaferi tightened and closed the in-
ing. A fielder's choice, a pass and a
ingle gave the visitors their first tally
n the fourth, Hagerty crossing1 the pan.
ingles bv Harris, Fish and Pomerlean
were mixed with a sacrifice bv McCarthy
the fifth and gave the visitors one
more tally. Harris neing caught at the
plate on Sddini's heave before Fish reg
istered on PomeTlean's sinele-sscker. It
wss then that Bottogl filled the breach
with his sensational catch.
The Italians got back one of the two
runs in the same inning. Tonazzi singled
over third base and Davidi dropped an-j
other into centerfield. On the drive To-!
nazzi went tearing around the bases amt
got nipped at third on the ccnterficlder's
heave, Davidi going to second. At this
point Hagerty generously dropped Cal
cagni's serial and the first baseman fum
bled AA'eaferi's little offering down the
first base line, the latter misplay enab
ling Davidi to cross the pan. Calcagni
tried to score on the same misplay and
was snuffed out, and Comolli went out
to third.
The college bovs copped the winning
tsllv In the sixth on Ilagcrty's single,
Derby's sacrifice and Dunn's safety.
From the fifth to the eighth, the lo
cals went up against a Bolid defense; but
the eighth showed promise when AA'ea
feri dropped one into right field, which
Hagerty misjudged, and the runner went
to second on Comolli's out. third to first.
Soldini drew a pass, but the best Giaca
muzzi could do was to roll one to second,
who touched the base for a force-out,
and the third out of the inning.
AA'ith the score 3 to 1 against them,
there looked like a fighting chance when
Bottigi started the ninth with a safety,
and AA'illiams was safe when his ground
er got moxed up" with Bottigi and the
second baseman. Tonazzi's fly to right
field was dropped, and Bottigi. who had
held up on second to avoid a double play,
was forced at third on a very clone deci
sion. Davidi fanned, but Comolli drew
a pass. AA'eaferi, at this critical stage,
poled out his third safety, and it was
easy scoring for AA'illiams. ' Tonazzi took
a fighting chance to tie up the score on
the same play and was thrown out at
the plate, thus making a sensational fin
ish to an interesting contest. The score:

Pick-ups from the Game.
AAllliams, the Spaulding high player,
filled in well at short, but was wean with
the willow.
Left-fielder Bottigi was the headliner.
His catch of a short fly in the fifth was
marvelous, as he got the ball not mor-s
than two inches off the ground, after a
hard run. It was better than a "shoe
string" catch; and, besides, it choked off
a threatening batting rally.
St. Anselm's right-fielder thought he
was picking shadows out of the air when.
he dropped three Hies, two ot wnich were
right in his mitt. But the sun field Is
very bad.
Two St. Anselm's players came near
being put out of the business when they
turned their ankles on the home plate.
"Reminds nie some of the old North
ern league," was the remark of a fan
leaving the field.
The band stand on the right field foul
line is a nuisance and a hindrance to
good baseball.
Better Judgment in running oases
might have saved the game for the
1. A. C.
St. Anselm's would be a big drawing
card again.

Blessings on
Your Head
Many men have found out to the ad
vantage of their pocket book that a
Panama Hat is about the least expen
sive luxury-comfort that money can
buy.
Costs a little more in the beginning,
but wears like iron and feels like a
feather.
Your head keeps cool and you for
get you wear a hat, if it is a light,
airy Panama of the sort you find
here.
Wear it several seasons and still it's
good; bang it around and it don't seem
to mind it. In short, it's the hat for
comfort.
When comfort of this kind can be
bought for $4 and up, WHY HESITATE?

SPORTING NOTES.
Rumors to the effect that "Jake" Mal
colm, the star university of A'ermoni
twirler, has been signed up with the Bos
ton Nationals and was to leave at the
close of the present college year, have
no foundation. The big college pitcher
has no intention of leaving before receiv
ing his degree. As this is oniy his second
year in school, A'ermont will be greatly
aided for two years more in collegiate
baseball by the same moundsman, who
held Tufts college to one hit and shut
out the Medford team on the seminary
campus last Friday.
It is reported that Halstein. the star
first baseman of the university of A'er
mont team, leaves the fifteenth of the
month to join the Baltimore Orioles of
the International league; At college he
is one of the leading hitters on the team
and should make good at Baltimore.
"Jake" Pfeffer cf msior league baseball
fame has been signed bv the Dorchester
club of the Greater Boston league to
minsge the team. The new league
opened only a few weeks ago.
Keading lias Withdrawn it club from
the I'nited States lrague. The manage
ment wss disappointed with the show,
lag of tha club ever since the league
opened, and after the miserable showing
made on Memorial day decided to with
draw. Baseball men at Indianapolis are
negotiating for the Reading franchise and
hope to have their city represented in
the organization.
It looks at though the Pittsburg team
received the big end of the Hoffman,
Leach, Lieficld, Cole swap. The Pitts
burg club baa been scouting for a first
baseman and will undoubtedly not be
worried about Hoffman covering the in
itial corner. Cole, who has been a sensa
tion in the National league for the' past
few years, has a lot of good baseball in
him yet. As a pitcher Lifield is nearly
all in and the same can be said of Leach
as an outfielder.
Many of the papers outside of New
York look on Metiraw's Giants with
envy, une paper said mat ir wainewson
had landed ten straight games this year
there would have been more talk about
it than was made about the Titanic
disaster. And they go farther to say
that there has been a little chatter made
about Marnuard, who has not allowed a
single club in the league to outpoint
him.
Sam Felton. the husky pitcher of the
Harvard baseball nine, who hat been
given a thorough try-out by his coach,
is rapidly rounding into form for the big
game with Yale. On Memorial day he
twirled an excellent game against Penn
that aroused the hopes of the crimson
followers.
E. L. Mercer of Pennsylvania won the
broad jump at the intercollegiate Satur
day with a jump of 23 feet and 11 inches.
If Gutterson had been in the event, he
would have been pushed to his best, and
there might have been a new record
established.
Jameson and Schang, the eighteen
year-old battery of the Buffalo Interna
tional league team, are going a wonder
