it ia to go through this country an un

Handy Oris wold and Kugene Field.
Thoro ia a striking similarity between
Sandy Griswold, sporting editor of tho
Omaha Bee, and Eugene Field, the gifted
writer, much of whoso work is givon to
tho publio through tho Chicago Record,
"Talk about cosily baseball," said an
old citizen of Atlanta tho other day to
George W. Ulnes, tho Sporting New
travelling representative, "Why tho
costliest game of ball on record was
played right across tho Georgia lino in
South Carolina. I waa tho first base

tell you how it happened. Wo woro

and wo woro determined to beat. Well,
tho day finally arrived and wo wont up
to tho river whore tho othor follows

brought about fifty people with them
and with about tho same number from
our sldo wo mado a good showing. Tho
rivalry was vory deep and it waa not
long beforo wo found it out. Wo were
at tho bat and Tom Jenkins who waa
tho best batter on our team hit a tiy to
tho center field. Tho man who should
havo been out thoro waa busy talking to
a gal who was near him, and ho did not

follows mad and aa thoy had put up big
money on tho gamo thoy soon bocamo
vory noisy and insulting. It wont on
all right until ono of tho visitors called
our club a bad namo, and thon (ho fun
began. Our boy knocked him down and
waa knocked down in return, and bo
foro you could say Jack Robinson thoro
was n free fight. Two mon woro killed,

A Mew Wheel.
A St. Louis syndlcato has succeeded
in building a bicyclo, complete, of (ho
lightest metal known, nlumlnum. Tho
framo is cas( in ono piece and bored
similar (o (ho barrels of a shot gun. Tho
front forks, head tubo and fork crown
aro also cast in ono piece. Tho wheel
for road uso will weigh cloven to twclvo
pounds, for racing about nino to ten
pounds. Tho wheel will bo put on tho
market at 8125. No nickeling will bo
used except on tho cranks, crank hangor
and sprocket, tho framo comploto being
finished in tho natural color of tho
motal, which is n bright silvery sheen.
Scientific tests demonstrate that alumi
num is three times lighter than steel,
throo nnd ono-half times stronger and
will not rust, corrodo or tarnish. Why
shouldn't this bo tho bicyclo noxt season?

English match-makers and fighters
are firmly Imbued with the idea that "a
match well mado is halt won," and thoy
Mver regard a match aa made until its
articles of agreement havo been 'signed
and witnessed. Mitcholl does not regard
anything ho may havo aald hero aa bind
log on him. Ho feels perfectly justified
in looking tor and getting tho best of
the match with Corbott, it It la in hia
power to do so. Ho ia very anxious to
come to this country, where he laid tho
foundation of and acquired most of hla
fortune. He knows that Sullivan and
Corbettand George Dixon have made
big money easy money, too through
f their theatrical aad oxhlbltory ventures,
and he longatora slice of that pie for
himself. Unless his vanity haa wholly
Miaded hia judgment, he knows that hla
ohaaee of defeating Corbott is uvcry
Um one, indeed. Such w the opinion
of oee of the beat informed sporting
.authorities In the country. The writer
eontiaues: "He baa made friends with
John L. Sullivan, and he hopes that
Sully's old admirers will rally to hia sup
port when he 'goes on the road.' Hel

Columbian Athletio club, and if thi

Whether 'Gene dropped aa much money
on Sullivan as did Sandy, ia not known,
but the following from Field would in
dicate that ho is pretty soro and tho
poet is not a man who haa conscientious
scruples against betting "Mr. Corbott
belongs to a limited o fortunately
limited class of pooplo who aro too moan
to got drunk. This, however, is not tho
limit to his meanness; elsowiso ho is us low
and as brutal as tho veriest thumper
that loafs about tho street corners and

brutal, and hia practicea aro oven moro
despicable, for it is not with liquor in
hla voinB, but with cold blood, that ho
goes his infamoua way. There is noth
ing in this man to admire. Hia career
from the first haa been vicious. Ho pre

and more odious than all hia other
vicious aspects ia that mean, low,
cowardly hypocrisy of hia under which

The water that Mr. Fiold had been
drinking before he wrote this must have
been unusually full of microbes. Now,
Gorbett isn't exactly an angel people
looking for angels do not invade tho
pugilistic arena. Ho may not bo a fit
exponent of the gospel of sweetness and
light. Even his admirers will admit
that he is hardly a man to bo called on
to conduct a Chautauqua assembly or to
give advice to a convention of Christian
Endeavorers,and it may oven bo possible
that thoro aro a fow wheela In hia head;
but pugilistB aro generally conijuired
with pugilistB, and both Mr. Griswokl
and Mr. Fiold havo failed to point out
wherein Corbott is moro despicable, moro
odious, moro vicious, or meaner, or moro
cowardly, or moro hypocritical than tho
late champion, J. Lawrenco Sullivan, or
tho other gentlemon of tho sumo Ilk.
Corbott la ranged alongside of tho pugs,
not seraphim and cherubim, and it is
not easy to comprehend a kind of reason
ing that swallows Sullivan, and Jackson
and Mitcholl and draws tho lino at Corbott.
A New Long-Hit Itecortl Una Kern. Made

and yot tho clubs aro doing but little of

it is easier to mako long hits than it haa
boon in tho past may havo something to
do with tho lack of bunting. A baBo
hit is always a good thing, but n three
bagger ia a groat doal bettor if thoro aro

this summer that oven tlio BO-callod
weak batters havo no troublo in hitting

tho most noticcablo toaturo ot tho sea
son's work, and tho results (hat havo

If tho batting 1b to bo increased tho

features of baso ball is its brevity. A
person who liked tho gamo could go to
