But while the even days have been die.
netroue it is Possible to pick more consola-
tloi out of them than at any time since
the opening of the season. This is to ha
Zcund in the fact that at last after much
waiting the work of strengthening the team

baa been more the cause of defeata thali any
thing else , line been boosted up tenfold.

In the bud. As far an fIelding goes , the
infield can be complained of only on occasion -
sion , for as a rule it line been doing nice
vork. Certain it Is that all the itapors on
the eastern circuit have been praising the
'work of Eustace and holly and of float to a
somewhat less degree.
More thint that , the adilitional men prom-

strength of the team. Certainly they have
started oft well. Preston in his first two

the lacnl fans can turn their attention to

doing nice work , but have been greatly
liantlicapped by the ioor support behind
them.

There will uiiquestionaldy ho some sort
of a howl raised by some of the home
knockers over the dropping of Grifflu , but
from thin information ut h.aiul . his release
was ono of the best things that. could have
happened to the team. lie was dissatisfied
'with his berth and this dissatisfaction

one who wtui on the Inside had suspicions
that ho was deliberately attempting to
throw games. Certain it is that when ho
drew his salary Just before leaving on the
trip , ho made the remark that he hoped
it vn , , the last money lie would draw from
the home management. No matter 1.0w .
good a batter or fielder such a player may
be , ho is verse flint. worth.iess . to a team
_ Eo long as he is Imbued with. such a feeling.
There is ot cot1rse , attil clutbco foi improvement -
provement , and Maunger Fisher has not
given up his efforts to secure now players.
t Germany Smith ever bmorgea from his
ccius1on ho wiil be gobbied up , as ho can
jlay nowhere else but with Omaha. Ho
might advantageously ho placed in the infield -
field , perhaps. The search for outfielders
also has not yet been givea up entirely.
Nothing has been so noticeable during
the last week as the lack of batting ability.
Fhte fielding has been better thait those of
the opposing teams. Out of the six games
the Babes played , in three they made fewer
errors than the teams ngainst them. In
two they made an equal number. In only
one did they make more and that was the
first one with Milwaukee. The fielding
average of tue team was higher than that
of the week before , being 93,1 , against 88.6.
But with. the exception of the now men not a
PlaYer went above the 25 mark in the bat-
ting. Including the new men , however , the
team batting average jumped from 14.4 of
the week before to 21.1. The Individual

FOR LOVERS OF GUN AND ROD
State SportMnie.'eroirIcy it high
Clase l3yent , but Very hard
be the AinatelirM.
The tournament held last week by the
Nebraska Sportsmen's assocIation was a the-
cided success. Cracks from oil over tile
country were in attendance and the scores
were very high. Every race was chose and
such was tIle pace set that It required
mighty good shooting to get In on the
money. And pretty nearly everybody did do
good shooting , for so many were in on the
vurses that there were very few Who car-
ricti off fortunes from the tourney. In only
one respect could any fault be found with
the affair. This consists In the fact that
only three local shooters went through the
program. The cause of it was that the boys
hereabouts came to the conclusion that they
would stand small show with such an array
of talent that entered. It Icoked to them
like a clear case of throwing away money.
A man prominent in local shooting circles
spoke as follows regarding this : "I am as
enthusiastic a shooter as you are likely to
find , but I would ho a big sucker to go up
against such. a crowd as that. I am not
in their class at all. I know it and consequently -
quently do not propose to throw away my
money to do it. Of course , it would be more
patriotic for me to go In and make tim
tourney a bigger success by dropping my
plunks , but that Is a little too good a thing. "
The question came up at the meeting of
the association at the Millard hotel and was
talked over by the goodly lot of members
who attended. After a canvassing of the
situation a motIon was made that in the
future the events be confined to amateurs
except such as be especially arranged for
the professionals. An amendment , however ,
was made that the Lincoln clubs , which vIil
have charge of the tournament next year ,
be allowed to solve the problem and in this
way the matter was dropped.

suggested in the niciio mentioned aboyn

they cannot be given 'too much credit for
it. Lincoln will have 'to do a good bit of
hustling to surpass their results ,
The two state championships were interesting -
esting and close. This was particularly the
case In the live bird shoot. Only one 10811
came out in the ten hole and only two in
the eleven , making only three of thu nine-
tceii entries not in on the money , Itead was

The 10,000 deals , proposed by the New
York Sun to its correspondents for the pur-
Post , of testing certain theories , have at
last been completed. The dtuiia were
recorled by seveqty-four players , and a
number of interesting conclusions have been
drawn by theun regardints the results of the
bnntls. The chief point obervd. sqems to
have beem. the very large proportion of weak
suits held by the original leader , and soy-
oral have arrived at the conclusion that the
most common holding is a suit of two or
three cattls only , containing a single honor ,
reckoning the ten as one , The most reliable -
liable of these ilenle from the standpoint of
( hue analyst , will of course ho those which
form a continuous series all' dealt and
recorded by the same person. One player
sent in 1,100 , theals and another 1,000 , auid
these are considered extremely valuable and
interesting as staiitlnrtla of comparison , with
the results obtained from an average of
many smaller hots of fifty each , because
they show just how closely the statistics In
