Although the 1910 season Is still very
young and old Jupiter I'luvlua verj
unkind to the fans for the first few
weeks of the campaign, quite a num
ber of sensational stunts have been
palled off In the big leagues. In th
American and National leagues tbi
quality of ball has been on a hlgba
plane thou ever before, and, while tb i
fans of certain cities may be disap
pointed at the staudlng of their repie
aentatlves In the percentage columns,

they have to acknowledge that the
play this year has been fust and spirited.
In the first few weeks of play two
triple plays were made, both In the
National league. The New Yorks wlp
ed out threo of the Brooklyn players
at one fell swoop lu New York and du
plicated the feat a few days later In
Boston. Dahlen's Daisies pulled off a
three ply killing at the expense of the
Doves also. Tris Speaker, who Jim
McAleer says Is the best outfielder in
the country, already has made a dou
ble play without assistance, a rare feat
for a center fielder. Ty Cobb In the
second game played by the Tigers this
year beat Briscoe Lord of the Naps
out of a bit by throwlug Larry I.ajolo
out at second. Cobb, who, like Speak
always Is trying, came in fast on

'Audio joss, pitcher, lnroutor aud

who aver that lie should not have
been credited with this performance.

man slat make his second appearance
in the no hit colony. Walter Johnson
of thi Washington, Frank Smith of
the Chicago White Sox and Earl Moore
of the I'hilHes let their opponents
down with one rap hi nine lnulugs.
Of noble four bncgcrs and cleanup
swats there has been a bountiful sup
ply. J. Bent ley Seymour of the New
York Nationals and Tex Erwln of
the Brooklyn seem to have made
the longest loop-t lie-loop cracks of the
campaign. Miraw's outfielder and
Dahlen's backstop each hit the ball
over the high right Held wall In Phila
delphia. Flayers who have lilt for the
circuit with the bases In a, congested
condition In the tlrst few weeks of
the campaign are Norman Elberfeld of
the Wnshlngtons. who turned the trick

himself nmre popular than ever with ,
his ndrjirers recently when In an j

he drove the ball out of the lot.'nnd j
on his second he ngaln sent It beyond j

there can be nnv fruit or vegetable
which they do not candy, preserve

In a queer little pueblo in the
itate of Zncntocns I heard a wo
man calling monotonously, "Cimar
rones, calabasas!" Now, these
words in English mean sweet pota
toes and pumpkins. She had a
small tray, held in place by a leatn-
er thong that went around ncr
I crossed the plaza and asked her
or five cents' worth of calabasas.
She placed several pieces of a sug
ary yellow substance in a paper bag,
and I realized that I was going to

The regular stand of the sweet-

Last New Year's evo I was in
Nogales, a pueblo on the interna
tional line between Arjzona and the
Mexican state of Sonora. A vaude
ville entertainment was being given
at the little theater, and about 8
o'clock I strolled over to take in an
act or two. It was almost impossi

An Ancient French Custom.
Anciently in many parts
France when a salo of land took
place it was tho custom to have
twelve adult witnesses accompanied
by twelve little boys, nnd when the
price of the land was paid and ita
surrender took place tho ears of the
jbovs were pulled and they were
beaten severely so that the piin
thus inflicted should make an im
pression upon their memory and, if
required afterward, they might beat
witness to the sale.
