$200 for assaulting Umps Finneran.
We insist that no one but a fan has
a right to assault an umps, and even

Parson Farthing will be sold to a
state league team, probably York, but
with a string attached so he can be
yanked back in case he recovers his
form. The Parson's case is myster
iously baffling. Last year he set the
Western afire. This years he is
about as effective in the box as a
Jpne Orangeman in a St. Patrick's
.'day parade. .
This will injure the Joetown ma
terially, but if Tex utilizes the lay
off to improve the quality of his. lan
guage his temporary retirement will
not have been in vain.
Spider Corhan has rejoined the Sox
and shows himself ready to get back
into the game. If the Spider ever be

Leviticus Knapp has every reason
to feel proud of his hold on fandom
in these parts. When there was dan
ger that Leviticus would be sent back
to a minor team everybody mourned.
And when he suddenly came back

the record he set in that 'Lope-Kaw
game last week is equalled. To have
but twenty-eight batsmen face him

Manager Robertus is occupying the

In the meanwhile Guiseppe Dundon is

A Modernized Fable
Once upon a time a Grasshopper perched upon a ryestraw... and
fiddled away to beat the band.
An Ant, busier than a hen with one chick, hustled to store away
grub against the winter time.
"Foolish creature," chortled the . Grasshopper, "to vaste the
golden hours tolling like a slave. Why not enjoy life while you live.
Me for the bright lights and the hurrah time."
So saying the Grasshopper fiddled away the bright summer. But
the Ant continued to hustle for all get out.
When the first blizzard swooped the Grasshopper had no more to
eat than a mummy; and when just about to expire from hunger saw
the Ant going by looking as well fed as an alderman.
"Give me a bite," said the Grasshopper.
"Not me," said the Ant. "I hustled while you fiddled. You had
your fun, now I am eating regularly."
And a bit later the Grasshopper succumbed to the inevitable.
Moral: Do more hustling and less fiddling now, and later in life
you can fiddle without danger.
