Dan McLeod and Frank Gotch wrestled for $62,which was all the 'money .vicLeod had with him. " They were egged on to a match, neither knowing . the other, and each thinking he had' found a mark. McLeod simply happened to be in the town over night on his" way to another match elsewhere. An athletie event was on and the talk turned' to wrestling. Gotch selected the spo. where the wrestling was to take place. When McLeod saw the place select ed it sent shivers through him. It was an ordinary macadam . street, with small stones and loose gravel all over it. His opponent stood in the center t-y rou!re- not going, to wrestle hereof Said McLeod. "Whynof wrestle on one of those lawns?" "We'll wrestle here," said Gotch. i "All right," said McLeod, and speak ing of the contest the othe? day, he said: "That convinced uie more than anything else that I had a novice against me, arid that I would have no trouble. I was in great shape then, too, for I had. just -wrestled Hali Adali in Chicago." f , - .. . His Llvermore friends, realizing that JiIcieod -was a - Wrestler, told him v to let Gotch stay twenty minutes or so, in order that his friends from Hurpboldt might be encouraged to put up money, lcLeod agreed. The match began. McLeod dove under Gotch and tipped him up. ; But Gotch tried to tear away, and McLeod lifted bim and jammed him head first Into the gravel and stones of the street. He fiddled with Gotch for twenty minutes and then began to go after Gotch. But he found he had ,t good : one. and the rougher it was ae more Gotch liked it. He got behind McLeod on?e during . the entire con test. The first thing he did was to take up a handful of dirt and stones and grind , them into McLeou's eyes. The latter says he could not see for twenty minutes. : He kept after Gotch, but it was. fifty-two minutes before he was able to put Gotch's shoulders to the dirt. f The next fall McLeod won .in v nine minutes. - ' . Gotch wa a sight. He didn't have a square inch of skin anywhere on his face or body.

Several' New Yorkers who were at Philadelphia on Saturday and saw Ralph Rose put the 10-pound shot 4S feet 2 inches, expressed the opinion yesterday that the Michigan giant's method of delivering the sphere was not according : to - the- definition of a "fair put" One man. who 'acted in an official capacity 'and who was a shot putter in bis day, said: "Rose's style is not exactly a put, neither is it a throw. It I3 a sort of cross between the two. He gets all the advantage of the body and shoulder swing and the power of his aann, but he does not drive the ball straight away from him like Gray or Horgan. In standing behind Rose when he puts you can easily detect the 'bang.' " NEWS THE DIAMOND. BASE BALL WEATHER HERE Results of Games Played in All Leagues State Lea. g'uers Showing Up Well--Capt.

BASE BALL NOTES, The Lawrence team of the New England league played In Springfield yesterday and to-day. , Bob Hall, formerly of the New Ha ven team, is playing first base for the 1'niladelphla Nationals. Captain-Frank Fitzpatrick of Hol yoke is the diahiohd king of the league, ue had a beautiful ring presented him last fall in Holyoke and a pin handed out by Fall River admirers.. The admission for the Yale-Pennsylvania game In New Haven Saturday is $1. Yale undergraduates and New Haven fans are not pleased at the prospect of paying so much. Mike McCormick l already giving re ceipts for ill-fated pitchers. He tells -em to wear two left shoes into the game. McCormick ueclares that the move worked well in Holyoke. The Holyoke team has one of the most , exceptional . line-ups known. There Isn't a regular who bats left handed. Rube Vickers is the only man who swats from that side of the plate. , tThe Lynch of Brown college, whom Sam Kennedy of Meriden is trying out in the outer garden, is not the famous Mike Lynch, out a Lynch who went south with the New York Nationals this spring. - Hun,-the lad who is playing at short for New London, tried out as a pitcher with Batlimore of the Eastern league l.'jst spring, but afterwards turned his attention to the infield ' and ' played in ijayton, a., most of last season; ; 'alike Donovan of Springfield bor rowed a pair of base ball pants from McGraw last season and they are still in his possession. "I feel as if I was Mugsey McGraw when I have those pants on," says Donovan. They say in Springfield that he sleeps in them. Manager Danaher's New Haven team reported yesterday. He has so many , players that if he charges them admis sion - his financial success is assured. Phillips and Bunyan, who were te leased by .Hartford and caught on with, New Haven, were strongly recommend ed hy the Hartford managers. John J. Kelly, who umpired the game in Hartford Saturday, has con tracts-to umpire a number of college : games. For the important ones he gets $15. When a ball is knocked out of bounds Kelly shouts "Play ball!" The players look for an extra ball then . and let the sih.aH boys run after the one out in the lot. Kelly Is a substitute on the National league staff. His work Saturday -was beyond criticism and not a complaint -was registered. Mrs Christy Mathewson. wife of tne ! New York Nationals' , star twirler.' at tends , every game in which her hus band is to officiate. Just Imagine Mrs Mathewson's feelings Thursday after noon when her husband had to walK from the box amid 'the jeers and. jibes of 35,000 disappointed fans. It's an .even bet that the poor fellow would uave given quire a utile or. nis salary rather than take that parade from the pitcher's plate to the bench. The National association Is hot after breaking up the. strong independent clubs throughout the country. Hereaf ter no player belonging to a minor league club, can go out on Sunday or at any time and play with an Indepen dent club. The fine for this is $200 on the player. The manager is also fined if he allows a player to go out. Tu:. will cut out quite a little of the graft a I number of Connecticut league players had for doing stunts on Sundays for independent teams around New York. Manager Poli has offered a silver cup for the base ball teams in his four the aters in this state. The employes of his theater in New Haven began prac tice Saturday. ; They think they can beat any team in the Poli chain and thev also challenge any theater team in the state.

"Base ball Is a good, clean; healthy, outdoor sport and, considered by itself, is one of the best and most desirable forms of recreation and entertainment.
