Would Do for St. Louis Storlm Told
by w Vrtcran Other llascbnll Note of
N 187S," observed
Nick Young tho
other day, "a news
paper editor In
nnmed Fitzgerald,
advocated an In
crease In the num-
Hf bor of men on a
Mjp' ball team. Ho
"cjr claimed that ten
men were necessary to piny a game
of ball, and believed tho tenth, man
should bo located between flisi and
second base and called a left fihortst;,.
Mr. Hulbert knocked ihrs argument
by comparing a ten-men ball team to
a four-ball gamo of billiards between
such cue exports as Jake Schaefor and
Stossotl. You often hear odd theories
advanced about Impiovomonts In tho
game. When a change In tho pitch
ing rules wao being agitated four years
ago, John Gnffney BUggosted that the
batting would bo Increased If tho out
fielders wero confined bohlnd a lino
to bo located so many feet from tho
homo plate. Gaffney probably over
looked tho fact that such a rule would
crlpplo ono of the fielding features of
the game. Tho suggestion of Mr.
Hurst to allow tho bnse-runnore to
overrun second and third base Is now
under discussion, though It Is by no
moans a now suggestion. It Mr.
Hurst's Idea wero adopted by the play
ing rules commlttco tho base-running
featuro of tho game would bo almost
destroyed. Another suggestion made
by John Morrill, Is not quite practical,
Mr. Morrill believes tho pitcher should
be removed from his present position
In order to glvo tho base-runners a
chance to steal more bases. I have
studied tho pitching rulo caicfully, and
f.7id that tho present distance about
equalizes tho attack and defenso; that
Is, tho aggressor, which, is the pitcher,
and tho defense, who 1b tho batsman.
Base-running would bp enlivened If
Tom Brown's 36xlC rubber framo were
ndoptcd and tho pitcher was compelled
to movo from his slab every tlmo ho
threw to the bases."
but they aro useless If not enforced. I
bellevo that a rule should bo passed
compelling the major league clubs to
raako their players obey tho rules un
der a penalty. Tho trouble Ir tho
past has been n tendency on the part
of certain club officials to stand by
their players In violation of tho rules.
In other words, when an umpire has,
In compliance with tho strict wording
of tho rules, fined or ordered an of
fending player out of tho game, an Im
mediate howl for the removal of the
Judge of tho piny has been Invariably
sent to Mr. Young by tho magnate
whoso player was mado to suffer. This
proved to bo tho heaviest kind of
handicap for tho umpire, who gradu
ally allowed himself to bo ridden over
rough shod. If tho major league
could forco the clubs to Biistaln tho
umpires and not their own playcis, a
great deal of troublo would bo averted."

An Interesting marrlago ceromoay
was celebrated recently In Philadelphia,
the contracting parties being Sundel
Richmond nnd Mlsa Simon Spllkcs,
both being deaf nnd dumb, says tho
Philadelphia Inquirer. The coromony
wns performed by Rabbi E. Stolnhnus.
Tho hall had been gnyly decorated, and
tho bride, dressed becomingly In whlto
satin, Bnt with the groom at ono end,
receiving their frlondB and watching
tho dancing which preceded tho cero
mony. Tho most Impressive pnrt of
tho Jewish marrlago ceremony Is where
tho brido accepts the husband by the
uttcranco of tho sentence : "You nro
married to mo according to the laws ot
Moses and tho iBrnclltcB." Until she
has said thU she Is not consldorrd as
married. Great, then, wns tho expec
tant curiosity as to how this, part would
bo bridged over. Promptly at D o'clock
tho happy couple moved to tho center
of tho room, where n volvct canopy held
by four young girls was stretched over
them, All ot tho gucstH crowded
around nnd, lighting Binnll wax candles,
hold them high abovo their heads. This
expresses a deslro to light tho couple
Into a life of happiness and prosperity.
Tho attendants Joined hnndn and
formed a ring about tho brldo and
groom, walking around them several

tho marrlago ceremony, which ho aup-
