Pitched for Home Run.
Charles Webb Murphy, who still
fans seven days a week, though he is
out of baseball, was watching Cactus
Cravath of the Phillies hit those long
drives of his during practice at the
Cubs' park in Chicago recently.
"None of them can swat the ball like
Delehanty could when he was with the
team," said Murphy. "He had some
mates who could go too, Flick, Lajoie
and others.
"I once heard how Billy Earl caught
his first game against Delehanty. It
seems that Del cracked the first ball,
a high one, way on the outside, for a
double. Next time up, Earl gave an
other signal and Del nailed one low on
the inside for a triple.
"On Delehanty's third journey to the
plate the pitcher threw a wild one that
hit in front of Del. The batter caught
it as he would if he were playing
cricket, and converted it into a single.
"Earl was plainly amazed. So when
Delehanty appeared for his fourth ef-

British fleet a chance which it is so eagerly waiting for, the grand fleet has
an immense amount of work to do in maintaining effective sea command.
In spite of this every opportunity for port and entertainment is utilized in
order to keep the men in trim. This photo, the first of its kind to arrive in
this country, shows a boxing exhibition on board a British battleship
waiting at its base in instant readiness for action. It is greatly due to the
efforts of these sailors and thousands more like them that the German fleet
has not dared to come forth and attack our coast.

"Delehanty grinned. 'No,' he replied,
'Only the poor batters wait for that
kind.'
"Another time, when Shettsline, now
secretary of the Quakers, was manager
of the team, an important stage came
where runs were badly needed. Philly
got runners on first and second before
anybody was out. It was then Dele
hanty's turn at bat.
"Shettsline called Ed to one side and
said, 'You lay down a sacrifice bunt
now, and I'll have the next fellow try
to knock one out and score both men.
Delehanty nodded. 'All right,' lie an

and slammed it out for a home run. As
he rounded third Shettsline called out,

It always takes exceptions to prove
the rule and to keep certain accepted
styles from becoming monotonous. The
handsome dinner gown which presents
its brilliant accomplishment in black
and white with such assurance here is
an exception to the straight-line silhou

sive company of exceptions to this fea
ture of the styles for fall, for the
low. They extend a little way over
the hand and are finished with a nar
row binding of satin. A bit of white
georgette suggests an underbodice of
this lovely fabric where it shows
through the lace at the shoulders and
above the satin at the square neck.
If this gown started out with a dec
laration of independence as to its out
lines, it makes amends by making the
