HIGHLANDERS FAILED TO CONNECT
BUT BETTER LUCK WILL COME;
SIDELIGHTS ON THE PLAYERS
(By Gosh.)
Bert Humphries, aided and abetted
by one, Barber, and sejten other
Smokers, took the Highlanders meas
ure yesterday afternoon via the white
wash route, ine score being five to
nothing. Humphries had everything
that it takes to pitch winning baso
ball with, speed, a good breaking
curve and that most-needed thing of
all control and the way he had the
Highlanders begging for mercy must
have done the old boy good.
Ery opposed Humphries on the
mound and was touched freely, and
most always when hits meant nun.
"Bugs" was off his usual standard and
contributed largely to his own de
feat, making a pair of costly errors
and uncorking a wild pitch at the
wrong time.
Fenton was the only . .Highlander
who seemed able to solve Bert's deliv
ery oftener than once, the fleet-footed
center fielder getting a brace of hits,
one a real honest to goodness blow
and the other of the infleldvajiety
when he caught Humpy and Fobs both
taking a nap and dumped one in the
general direction of third base.
Neither side was dangerous until
the Bixth when the Smokers shoved
over a brace of counters
Vaughn, first man up, singled to
right field. Foss bunted and when
"Bugs" elected to try for Vaughn at
second all hands were safe when the
throw was wild and got away from
Palmer. Barber dumped one between
the box and third and when no one
fielded It the sacks were gloriously lit
up. Brackjpicked out ojiejo his lik
ing and whaled it at Dean who could
not get his hands on it and Vaughn
and Foss scored. Leach grounded out
Dean to Manes, Barber being held on
third. Nance hit to Palmer who threw
out Barber at the plate. Humpy end
ed the inning by forcing "Dear Doc
tor'' at second.
The Highlanders continued to be
helpless before the article of ball that
Bert was heaving and were retired in
order.
The Smoker counted again in the
seventh when LaMotte opened the in
ning by singling to left. On a try for
him at first Ery's peg was wild anJ
Bobble pulled up at third, from which
station he scored on Felix's sacrifice
ffy to Stewart. Vaugnn grounded out,
Dean to Manes, and Foss flew out to
Fenton.
The Smokers, to make it an odd
number In the run column scored
again in the eighth. Barber singled to
left and took Fecond while Ery was
throwing out Brack, and moved up a
station when Palmer threw out Leach
at first. "Doctor Nance," wno aia me
receiving for the locals in tne second
half of last season, counted Barber
with a double to left center. Hum
phries ended the inning, and the scor
ing for the day by grounding out, Ery
to Manes.

comes highly recommended and . is
expected to prove a consistent win
ner for the remainder of the season.
Palmer and LaMotte, given upby
all critics to be the best two short
stops in the League, staged a pretty
duel yesterday in which honors were
about even. Palmer accepted ten
chances without a bobble and swat
ted safely once. LaMotta botbled two
of his five chances but outhit Chick,
getting a triple and a single on the
day's count.

Fenton, Highlander center fielder,
caught the Tampa infield asleep the
first time up yesterday and dumped
one down the third, base line for the
first Highlander hit. Fenton has been
doing this same thing quite often of
late and getting away with it.
Stewart, who has been pasting the
apple with a vengeance here of late,,
has been moved up In the batting or
der to clean-up man, and It is expect
ed that some of the Highlanders who
have been dying on the bricks will be
shoved over.
Al Bertman and Art Kowalska, out
fielder and inflelder respectively,
from the fast NIeRen semi-pro team
of Chicago, reported last night. Both
boys are In fine condition, and reput
ed to be good men. They may possi
