Jesse TannehilL
There must be romance and senti
n'ent in the soul of Jesse Tannehill,
the old left hander. Twenty years aso
he was pitching in the Virginia
league, and it was from the Virginia
league that he went to the fast com
pany where he remained so many sum
mers. Now, in the twilight of his ca
rer, Tannehill has written his old Vir
ginia club for a position. He states,
and it is true, that he has good offers
to go out as a scout, or to manage
and play on various minor clubs; but
that his heart yearns for Virginia, and
that he would like to finish his base
ball story where it began. Still able
to pitch good ball, keen . of thought,
seasoned and sharpened by 20 years
of diamond work, Tannehill, like most
wanderers, wants to go back to the
scenes of his youth at the last and
the old pitcher will very likely get
his wish. If so, Tannehill, this sum
mer, will be the only vestige of the
ancient clul) owners president, man
ager and players have all gone, and
of the whole array he alone will re
main as a factor in the game'. - '
Quarrel With TurgenefT and the
Reconciliation That Followed.
Raymond Recouly in the Paris Fi
garo gives the following account of
an early encounter between Tolstoy
and Turgeneff, which shows the Rus
sian sage in a different frame of mind
from the one in which the world has
since come to know him:
It was on the estate of his friend,
the poet Fet, near Yasnaya. Turgeneff
was among' the invited guests. The
hostess inquired after his daughter,
who was being reared in France.
Turgeneff spoke highly of his Eng
lish governess. "With a truly British
exactitude," he said, . "she requested
me to fix-the sum which my daughter
might spend for charity. And now
she teaches her pupil to mend the
ragged clothes of the poor." .
"And you consider that a good
thing?" nsVed Tolstoy.
"Certainly," replied the other. "It
brings the benefactor into direct con
tact with the persons whom be Is
"On my part, I think that a well
dressed child who handles dirty and
ill smelling rags is playing a hypo
critical and theatrical farce."
"I must ask you not to speak in
this way," exclaimed Turgeneff, with
menacing looks.
"Why should I not say what I am
convinced is the truth?" remarked
. "You think, then, that I am educat
ing my daughter badly," and, while
Fet was Interceding. "If you will talk
In that way I shall box your ears."
Then he left the room, begging his
hosts lo pardon his abrupt departure.
Tolstoy also went. At the neighbor
ing station he wrote to Turgeneff de
manding an apology. He ordered pis
tols and tried to provoke his rival to a
duel. Turgeneff's answer, very digni
fied, brought the apology demanded
by Tolstoy. He closed by saying that
he thought it best that two men with
such opposite tempers should hence
forth break off all relations. Tolstoy,
carried away by his auger (it was in
1SC1). declined to be satisfied with
R-jeh an answer. He felt that he had
been gravely offended. He demanded
reparation by arms. He therefore re
peated his provocations. His friend
Fet. who attempted to pacify him
succeeded only in drawing from him
this vigorous reply: I be of you
henceforth not to write to me any
more. I shall return your letters un
opened, the Knuie as I do with Turge
neff's." A fter these occurrences Turge
nelT returned to France, where he
passed the greater part of his time.
Some mantlis later, ou reflection. lo(
stoy regretted his violence. Seized
with remorse, he sent Turgeneff a let
teT asking his pardon. "I find it ex
ceedingly painful," . he wrote, "to
