Then airnin. the soil tillers had ,. ,,l,l a it 1 bit tin- bankers' money in .1 result of the vietories. 'l he Cliioa.-oites determined to leach the children "( Xatare a levin and at Hie same time separate them from some or all of their hard-earned coin. Than runs the tale of a writer who i inter estiiitf. if not true. , .So the crafty bankers formed themselves into a i linittee und, ealline upon Kittreilire anil Hutchinson, declared th it they could and would not stand for the merry hay makers' jests and clioMincss any longer, so ii ileal was framed up whereby "Kitt" and "Hutch" would, on the following Sunday pose as a couple of full llidjed I'hicaco bank ers, and s such would do their utmost to smear defeat over the jean clad lads. All iliiriiik' that week the bankers were busily covcrini: (he yokels' money, and the cumins Bame was the chief topic of conversation throughout the country. So "easy" had the bankers been herelofore that every man or boy who could set his hands on a dollar was sure to bet it on the llawson team. Indeed, i score or more farmers, whose places were inorteat'.-d, eoiit'ulently expected t" clear off all the indebtedness and to restock their farms on the money they would win on that day's came. To further inspire the rustics mill itideiice, Kittredce and Hutchinson. decked out in llannel trousers and tiily col ored mifiiiir shirts, topped off with the cutest little "Willie boy" tennis hats that could be purchased in riiicairo for money, were put out on the lot in front of the- farmers to practice. And riu-ht here is where the fun heenn. for "Kitt" is a natural bom actor and mimic. So is Hutchinson and as they were both youim and chock full of mischief in those days, they acted the part of "Willie boys" lo the letter. When "Hutch" would throw tlm ball to "Kilt" he would send it up in the exact way a woman tosses a ball. usinK the same .iiannorbms and so forth. "Kitt." on ratchinK the ball, would dance around and wring his hands, at the same time railing out to "Hutch," "Hash take it, Percy, do not throw them so hard, they sting like fury!" Well, these two "cut una" kept ihe' villager guffawing continually, by their manner of acting and their line of conver sation. In the meanwhile the foxy bankers were circulating among the rural gentry and taking al! the bets in sight. For all the countrymen had to do in order to get' their nerve up to the wagering point was tn take one look at the bankers' battery. This was enough. To make the affair look like a "cinch" for the rural rlnb was the tip quietly given out to the soil trimmers that the Dawson team were going to work in a professional battery think of the duplicity of the "Ken !,,, on the unsuspecting bankers. These professionals were the kind you sec playing around at county fairs, and whom the vil lage papers, in all their rustic simplicity, compare to Lajoie, Hans Wagner and other great major leaguers. This type of player occupies a high position in the estimation of his townspeople, and talks and acts as if he really were "it." The battery that the Dawson folks engaged were an unusually sassy and merry pair of ball players, and when they saw "Kitt" and "Hutch" at practice they became so full of "laff" that they had to go behind the crowd and just lih-r.tlly howl. The entire assemblage of "come on" gen try were having the time of their lives at the expense of "Kitt" and "Hutch." They railed them Perry and Clarence; Inquired in bucolic tones "if their folks knew they were out." and shot similar screamingly funny bits of merriment at the bankers' battery until every rural apeetator on the ground was simply killing himself "lulling." "Kv erybody was happy," as almost the entire amount of circulating coin .in the county was down on the game and the contest al ready won, as far as the ruralites could see. It is not necessary to go into the harrowing details of that memorable game, as the par ticulars are too painful tit relate; u Aire to say lha. not once during the entire nine inn ings did a festive "Uube" arrive at the sec ond sack, for the ones that "Hutch" did not strike out,' "Kit " with his unerrinif aim and cannon ball -livery, would throw nut anywhere froin"o 20 feet from the bag. While at the but "Kitt" and "Hutch" every time would drive the ball over into the adjoining country. In some manner the particulars of hew the haymak ers Inppened lo get "stu.r." leaked out, and an onlooker of an obs r.ing disposition who happened to be in the vicinity said that never since the world began was there ever so many people making noises like a dog afflicted with the acute stage of hydrophobia as there was in and about the town of Daw son when the "inside" work attending that great Sunday game w-as explained to the rustics.
