Yankees seems i have made the Polo grounds, the tost modern and spacious of the base ill plants, seem somewhat obsolete tlid absolutely inadequate. Recently key had over 40,000 fans lnslile the ;rounds. Inspector Cahalane, who iHiwH a great deal about handling and oounting crowds, declares that over (0.000 more were turned back when he gates were ordered closed. Un questionably, many thousands more ould hRVe gone to the Polo grounds litiat afternoon had they felt that there fould be any chance to obtain seats. It looks verv much as though a base ball park with a capacity of 100.000 .usi .be built In the near future, for ftrork at any rate, writes W. O. McQeehan, in the New York Tribune. Whs New Yorker will not sit in the ileachers unless it is a particularly ?Vroocial" game and he can not get jiy other seat for influence or for fconey. The development of interest in base SIL caught the magnates most of them absolutely unprepared. In the frafr following tie end of the war the liajorlty of the magnates were tlrnor iusly talking retrenchment. They Shortened their season and cut down heir expenses. But the game came Jack with new life, as anybody but a aaeuail magnate wouio. nave joreaeeu.

When within (one hundred yards of the structure they would take wing, returning upstream fan uncertain distance, again repeating their floating down to the zone of ulanger above the bridge, but they never float underneath. The sand bar upon iwhich our blind was located was most convenient to the line of float and tflight. Shooting success resolved itself into a game of wits. Jimmy was the jiov who knew the game. Our blind was correc;.!v and artistically built on She outer point of a sand' bar. We .were fll iovinir late full shooting, weath pr beine a little "snappy."

He ran the 400 meter hurdles in 04 seconds flat, a full second better than the time made by C. Bacon In the fondon Olympics in MARSHALL'S ANSWERS. I am advised that there is a club in California known as The Tuna club, which offers a gold button for every tuna caught. Please give me the ad dress of the club; also the largest tuna ever caught. Are there any special conditions governing the fishing? RALPH GURLEY. Minneapolis, Minn. Catallna Island, Cal is the home of the Tuna club. In the harbor of Ava lon they have a commodious club house, walls are decorated with record fish caught, also festooned with medals owned by the club members. This club was organized in 1898 by Dr. F. C. Hol der of Los Angeles, Cal., recognized au thority on fishing. Since that date careful data has been kept on thi cap tured tuna, weighing in excess of 100 pounds, which is the minimum weight chronicled. Tackle specifications are, a rod of wood, consisting of a butt and a tip and not to be snorter than six feet nine inches over all. Tip not less than five feet in length and to weigh not more than 16 ounces. Line not to exceed standard 24-thread. To Col. C. P. Morehouse, Pasadena, Cal., the palm for the largest tuna captured has been awarded. This fish weighed 251 pounds, caught in the year 1899. Have heard considerable comment re cently about "shot-balling." Do you know anything about such a proposi tion or what occasions the trouble? Could this be taken as a cause for targets missed? CKO. RANKIN. Harrisburgh, Pa. At the old Indianapolis Gun club was a tight board fence, about 10 feet high and about 125 yards back of the traps. On one occasion, my attention was called to the "balled shots." A number could be found which apparently came from the same gun, no doubt occasion ed bv shot corrislon in the shells, due to Borne unknown condition. "Balled shots" are so infrequent that they are not a factor of disappoinment in tar get shooting. DON'T MISS THIS ONE. As the liner left 'the wharf at New York the freer and enlightened Ameri can citizen heaved a sigh of relief. "I guess I'll have a highball," he said to the steward. "I guess not, sir," replied the affable steward; "not yet." "Whv not?" said the U. S. A. man. "This is a British ship, isn't it?" ,"Yes, sir." "Then why can't I have a drink?" "We have not yet passed the Statue of Liberty, sir," replied the steward. London Punch. GEERS ON HIS STRIDE BY W. H. GOCHER.
