The interstate roller polo league has
at last taken the count after a most
severe punishment. lAfter a meeting of
the league Sunday, President Fouse an
nounced that the league had disband
ed. When the National league started in
New England two months ago, many
of the best Interstate players were lur
ed away by offers of bigger salaries.
The interstate league held a meeting
Saturday and decided to go out of bus
iness. Youngstown, Akron and Sharon
said they were ready to quit Beaver j
Falls, Canton and New Castle wire
making money and wanted to continue,1
but couldn't go on without the other
three. The league was then disband
ed. The details of the meeting were,
not given out until Monday, and the
news of the disruption of the league,
came as a great surprise to the. play
ers and fans all over the circuit. All of
the players secured their money except
the Akron men. The men behind the
game there claimed they were financial
ly, embarrassed and refused to pay last
week's salary.
The Cleveland Leader says the play
ers are to blame. Up to six weeks ago
the league was in flourishing condi
tion. The desertion of Jean killed polo
in Akron, while the loss of Hart and
Coggshall put Youngstown to the bad.
For the past three weeks Sharon, Ak
ron and Youngstown have been losing
on an average of $200 a week. The
falling oft of attendance, coupled with
the fact that the players tried to run
thg league,' especially the Canton club,
Drought about its downfall. Last week
the Canton club positively refused to
play the games with the Akron club,
which were scheduled for Erie, on ac
count of the six-day race In Akron. The
breaking up of the league can be laid
to the players. They not only refused
to play the dates scheduled, but de
manded salares far in advance of their
worth. The fact that the interstate
was at war with the National made
players scarce, and caused war-time
salaries to be paid.
President Fouse of the Interstate says
the finances are all right, and all bills
have been paid.
By the disruption of the interstate
league many first class players will be
thrown on the market and the Nation
al league teams will profit thereby.
Hartford fans are naturally interested
In the Boston team, recently transferred
from Hartford. It It understood that
Hardy, the big center, Is likely to dis
place Long John Wiley, at the Hub.
Wiley has been playing at a disad
vantage for two weeks, since his right
hand was Injured by a hockey stick.
He Is not now able to play anything
like his usual same at center, or In any
other position, being inabl to drive the
ball. It would not be surprising If he
was released in favor of Hardy, who Is
In the same class with Fred Jean, but
rot so good a rinK general as Wiley.
Pawtucket has secured Woodtke, the
"Flying Dutchman," for the rush line.
and Pence, the "Boy Wonder," at goal,
"Mary Ann" Tlbbits, the giant goal
tend of the Providence team, Is likely
to be displaced.
Bridgeport Is after Ted Iewis, who
is a rusher In the same class with Bob
by Hart.
Waterbury wants "Jig" Higglns. a
rusher who has always made good.
The story that Paul Gardner has been
signed by Now Haven team is untrue.
George Bone does not want to break up
a winning combination and has no in
tention of getting the interstate player.

Probably Accept Bid.
The meeting of the New Haven Gun
club held last week left the affair con
cerning their accepting the bid of the
Interstate association in the hands of
the directors who will decide upon the
matter at their next meeting. This
question of joining this league will no
doubt be decided at this meeting and
the bid no doubt excepted. "There are
several advantages In joining this
league.- Records made in shoots all
over the country by clubs belonging to
the Interstate association are recorded
but those made by clubs outside the
league are noe recordd. By Joining
the association several big shoots can
be procured. c"

Mantell was never traveling faster In his career than he iR at pres

and is now down to 147 pounds. Accord ng to the articles of aeree
ment he can ei;ter the ring at anywhere from 142 to 145, and in all
probability will be at 144 on the evening of the bout
Mickey Molloy, the amateur champion lightweight of Rhode Is
land dropped up to Ashton a few days .igo and went a couple of
rounds with M iitell. Most of Mar.tcil s work has been done with
Peter Fifield, the east Providence welterweight, but faster trainers
will put on the finishing touches.
The bout between Willie Lewis and Bill Papke will probably be
fought at Providence, as the managers of the Standard A. C are hot
after the event
Kid Kitt has commenced to train for h;s bout before the Edgewood

Tommy Dnwd Exchanges Heine Gast
tneyer for Eastern Leaguer.
Manager Tommy Dowd completed a
deal recently that gives Hartford one
of the cratk outfielders of the East
ern league. He exchanged Heine
Gastmeyer for Jocko Halligan of Jer
sey City. With Fallon, Maynard and
Halligan, Hartford will have a trio of
garden artists second to none In the
league. For several years Halligan
has been one of the king stickers In
the Easternl, and Hartford fans have
had a number of opportunities to see
him put the wood against the ball. As
a fielder, he covers just about an acre
of ground. His favorite pasture is

place him In the starboard side of the
field, with Maynard in the pivot posi
tion and Fallon In the sun garden.

strange way.
A telegraph operator who spent the
lonely hours in the little watch box,
with no more than half a dozen trains
a day to disturb him or break the
monotony, before the big yard was
built, called up the Baltimore office
and asked to be relief from such a
lonesome place. In sending the mes
sage he signed "operator in charge of
the tower all alone." There was some
trouble on the wire and the last word
could not be understood. He was ask
ed to repeat and then to spell it back
ward. This he did, first "alone," then
"Enola-" In this way the town, which
was built to order in a little more than
two years, gots its name. Philadel

Mr. Roosevelt's ability to do a great

to work Is his ability and determina

him, and maintain the. highest point of
efficiency. The President never "loafs,"
but never forgets to plan a certain
amount, or hard working leisure. He
rests his brain and nerves by "work

waste of time because he returns to
brain work under a full head of steam.
Thousands of business and profes

half of the work done by President
Roosevelt, haven t time" for oxer

complish as much because they ignore
the importance of keeping In condi
tion to work, nnd for the same reason
their work Is oftfcn drudgery.
President Roocvelt does not make

thinking that steam heat is a health
preserver and that cold air and damp

A hush fell upon the audience as
the sweet chime of bells were again
heard, and the curtains slowly parted,
revealing a pretty group under
branches of fsmilax, mistletoe, and
holly branches, with fairies In attend

of fine physique and attractive coun
tenance, which was illumined with
happiness and tender love for the fair
white-robed maiden standing by bis
side, with downcast eyes, contemplat
ing the beautiful bouquet In her
hands; and beneath her veil the
blushes came and went. Miss Daisy
Conklin and Mr. Jack Bartlett were
attendants upon the pair. Mr. Henry

Conklin to be his wife, to cherish and
love till death parted." The clear, firm
response, "I do," being satisfactory,

in the affirmative by his companion,

on her finger, and the couple pro
nounced husband and wife, end no
one ceuld feel a doubt but that God
had joined these two together. Alta

a speed of forty miles an hour, an
