U will hardly appear crcdiblo to my read

Bilve the problems which must necessarily

In ages past , when people far different
from ua walked the earth , greater In science ,
greater In art and greater In gall , the ono
dealro that tenanted their souls was the
unquenchable lihlrat for wisdom. Earthly
desires chained them not. They lived within
a tabcrnaclo of clsy. seeking only knowledge
and power to understand the laws and
nature of the universe and to control Its
workings. The solemn and mighty nations
who then ruled the habitable globe made
i ; no difference between Bcleneo or base ball.
They fathomed the mysteries of all creation ,
not only by analysis , but by superhuman
perception. Yet they usht to learn too
inuoh. They ossaycd to wrest from nature
tliono tccretB only known to such men as
Pa Itourke , Willie McVoy and Lily Langs-
ford and , of course , fell. Now Huckerlno
Ebrlght la the only living descendant of
those obsolete guys whrse wisdom has been
lost , their knowledge scattered to the winds ,
leaving only a few old oyster cans and horseshoes
shoos as an evidence of their brilliant scl-
encea. A few , however , remaining true to
tholr preternatural selves , retained their
purity and power ; they are all dead now but
Duck. Ho stands alone Ilka an oasis In the
middle of the desert , happy In the thought
that ho lives In Lincoln and that his brain

egg.Once every so often , or thereabouts , Buck-
orlno gathers about him a trusty gang of
Salt Creek clodhoppers and comes up hereto
to the metropolis and endeavors to demon

ho Is still as great as ho used to was. Uul
a gbnco back over his exploits here will

has ever done but make a big monkey of
The trouble with Duck Is that he cats too
much hay. Ho should try chopped feed or

rock salt every night before he goes Into hU

TOOK THE BIGNESS OUT OF BUCK.
For the second time this month he made
himself visible here yesterday afternoon out
nt the Charles Street park. It was ladles'
day , and there was a handsome crowd pres
ent , all burning up with lire to see him and
his antropomorphlcal curiosities toy with the
When Buck strode upon the field he was
as big as a real man , but at the termination
of the disturbance It would have required a
forty-horso power microscope to distinguish
lilm from any of the Hying Infusoria that
filled the air , ho had shrunk so. Daxendale
would have looked like a giant beildo him.
On account of the sickness of Regular
Umpire Hogan , and the fact that Jack Has-
hell waa taking MB annual bath at Court-
land beach , Winded ! Scott Ca'm'p was elected
to adjudicate' the fine points of the dispute
between Pa and Buck.
It would bo a prevarication to state that
Wlnfleld gave eminent satisfaction , for he
did not , and once Huckerlno got oo all-fired
mad at him that he threatened to throw up
But your Uncle Dave whispered a few
blrdllko notes In his largest ear , and Buck
picked up his corn-cutter again and went
right back In among the harvest hands , and
worked until the sweat poured oft hl-s high

and manly forehead like dish water Into a
nuck ch e Sammy McMackln our Sam
to rcpressnt him In the box , and the Uourlccs
maltreated him Rhamcfulljr.
It was exactly a charter toI when Sammy
heard a wheezing nolso In front of him , and
looking up he saw an old man , bending
'neath year * of toll , stamllnK In front of
him and holding the trunk of a trco threat-
cnlngl ? over his shoulders.
It was Colonel Scory.
"I'm Je t tboiit tuckered , Sammy , " he
said , "ehasltii ; Willie Trafllcy over at Des
Molnc.i , but let loose at mo , and I'll see
what I kin do fur It. "
Then the colonel swiped her , and John t .
Sullivan matte a mess of It at first , and ho
was safe. Tile Lily hoisted one to never-
c.itix , and waddled back to the bench. Then
a passed ball hunched Hnimlt along another
notch , and on C'jptaln McVcy's heroic swat
he loped fiercely home. Wllllo Ulll Moran
drove ono down to lluckcrlno , but Muck
couldn't . ce It for his feet , and Wllllo 13111
reached Eccond. Captain Mac , thinking that
thla was n gcud tlmo for him to do some
thing mori , endeavored to skate home , but
lluckcrlno recovered thu sphere In time to
nail him at the plate.
Ilntch'H Uy to Wood brought the country
Jakes In , und Joel Neal took his poiltlou
fornlnst Ucnnla McCarthy.
Neal la a shipoly looking fellow , with
waflle-colorcd curls and a cold and haughty
look , ami he pitched u magnificent game , If
lii ) did permit Dennl * to walk as a starter.
Itut Joel knew his huslnesu , and putting a
Southern L'ague twist ta the ball , largo
Mr. IIughe < pushed it down to Hutch , who
not only caught Dennis nt second , hut also
Mr. Hughes nt first.
It was a neat double play.
The Hoston Hoy's out from the Lily to
Cnptalu Mac caused the agriculturists to
get out their hiuklng pegs again.
They made expeditious work of the
Rourke1 , then returned and took the lead.
lluckcrlno was llrst up. Ho didn't wait a
minute , but just slashed the ball with his
scythe , and before It could catch Its breath
It brought up kcr-sook against the fence.
With a walling cry and the odor of boiled
cabbage he tore to first. Neal allowed
Dovercaiix to perambulate , but both Wood
and 1'lggy went out on flics , and Sammy
McMackln was at the bat.
Sammy was born la the glow of a wet
morn , ami ho'a a hard nut to crack. The
first ball the Memphis twlrler sent at him
he punched In the cerebellum for two sacks ,
scoring both Duckcrlno and Mr. Hughes ,
and there was wild and unrestrained hilar
ity among the country folks from Lincoln.
The Lily shmmcd McCarthy out at first.
SOMHWIIAT HAUD ON SAMMY.
In the third the Itourkes Jumped upon
Sammy's back and jolted all the plugs out
of his teeth.
Joel first hit him a welt nnd reached sta
tion one In a common canter ; then old man
Seory stuck a dado 'round the horizon with
a rasping double ; Lily hit safe and Captain
Mac's aromatic drive sent Neal and nniinlt
swarming over the pan , and ou Moran's safe
poke Langsford followed In their wake.
Captain Mac , however , got a trifle previous
and was expunged at flrt. Then Hutch went
out to John L. nnd Kid Fear tried to make
a hit , but couldn't. He propelled his club thrice
through tlis air In quick succession , nnd
when he saw what he had done he broke
down and wept.
Another smoking double wrecked the hay
makers' hopes In their half , but In the fourth
they swooped down on one more lonccomc
llttlo tally and their last.
Huckerlno thrust his wagon tongue down
the throat of one of Joel's curves , nnd be
fore Seery gathered up the fragments lie
was on second. Devcreiux's sacrificial tap
helped him to third , and a passed ball home.
Then that wns all until the ninth , when
doubles by Captain Mac , Old Hutch and I'a
gave us two more.
That was a half dozen raw , and Papa
called his boys off , and as lluckcrlno filed
slowly , sndly and solemnly * out of the gate
the crowd gave him a cheer.
That was like barbarians studding storks
and ostriches -vlth jewels and bowing be
fore them In worship. Wasn't It ?
Klvo double plays of the sensational order
were executed hy Omaha during the trouble ,
and Mr. Ebrlght made one sll by his lono-
some. The fielding of the hcmo team was
gilt-edged all through , Uourke's solitary
error being a fumble of a hot grounder
along the third base line. Langaford made
a couple of Herman Long stops , and both
Seery and Kear contributed circus catches.
LlncJln'o fielding was bettor than the error
column ehows , for only one Sullivan's was
costly. It was by all odds the best game
played this season. Score :

IVES AND "THE NUMBER EIGHT.
Curloiltles nnd Wiiiulrr * In the Career of
Ilin Deeeuned "Napoleon of Flminen "
Only eight years have passed since Ives
subjugated Wall street ; only n few days
have elapsed since he died a man of 30 years.
Yet It Is difficult to believe In his accom
plishments , dllllcult to bcllovc ho over lived.
He is nit hut Incredible , even to those who
know him. Of all the remarkable persons
who have been dubbed "Tho Napoleon of
This , " or "Tho Napoleon of That , " ho was
the ono who could perhaps best bear the
comparisons which the title Implied. This
was his career as summarized by the Provi
dence Journal : At IS ho left his father's
farm to enter the employ oNHarper & Bros ,
ns olllco boy , salary $2 a week. At 19 , clerk
In an advertising agency , salary , $ ( ! a week.
At 20. clerk In a broker's olllco , Wall street ,

peculations. At 21 , "stock and bond
broker , " capital $10,000 , with an assistant to
whom ho paid $18 a week. At 21',4 , "Ives ,
Meeker & Co. , " capital , $30,000. At 21-T4 ,
"Ivos & Stayner , " members of Stock ex
change. At 22 , principal owner nnd vice
president of the Mineral Range railroad ; had
"made" $538.301. At 22i. > . "Henry S. Ives
& Co. , bankers , " controllers of the Cincin
nati. Hamilton & Dnyton railroad , out of
which he "milked" $2,000,000. At 22'fc bought

23. assigned ; "liabilities , $20,000,000 ; assets ,
$21,000,000. " At 21 , arrested and Imprisoned ,
having stolen and misappropriated $0,000,000.
At 25 , tried. At 25V4 , free. At 27 , con
ducted a "deal" with a Brooklyn dry goods
house. At 28 , married nn opera singer. At
30 , died.
EU'ht wns this wonderful business man's
fateful number. He began at 18 to break
the eighth commandment , was taken to task
for It In 18SS , after the eighth of his leading
"deals , " and finished the eighth year of his
career at 8 by the clock on the eve of the
ISth of April.
NOT FIVE HUNDRED MILES.
IlnllroiKl Ilnlldlng In mill Smaller Tlian
for H Niimlnir of Years.
During the six months of the present
year , up to July 1 , only 495 miles of now
railroad were built In this country. That Is
Hss than for any previous half year for
many years. It Is only n third of what was
hullt in a similar fierlod of 1891 , 700 miles
less than during the first half of IS')2 ) , and
530 miles below the first halt of 1893. The
total track built In each of those years wns
2,585 miles In 1893 , 4,010 miles In 1S92 , and
1,012 miles In 1891. Usually the proportion
of new track laid In the llrst half of the
year Is between 30 and 40 per cent of the
total reported for the year. If past experl-
once Is to be repeated this year , this report
of ' 195 miles built means that only about
1.500 miles will bo built In 1891 , nnd such a
low figure as that has not been reported
since accurate records have been kept. But ,
iccordliig to the Nu\v York Tribune , there
Is good reason to bolleve that the total of
now railroad constructed In the twelve
months will bo largar than the result re-
[ > orted for the halt year may seem to prom
ise , Judging from the proportion of work
that has heretofore been done In the early
iart of the year. Railroad men are sur-
iirlsed to know that even 500 miles of new
iiavo been built , so quietly has the work
? one on , gererally on short lines widely dis
tributed over the country , few of them
naltlng connections with other roads. What
ivlll be done the rest of the year depends , of
: ourse , on ths changes that may occur In the
state of financial affairs of the country.
[ Jut It Is a fact of much significance that the
unouitl of new road In which the Invest
ment made Is too great to ha. lost by any
'allure to complete the projects is prob-
ibly larger than at this time last year.
A llrlghl- Mailer , Thin.
The absent-minded man Is unlucky about
setting into predicaments , but. like the cut
if nine llvos , he gets out of them with rare
; oed fortune. A man who can't help for
getting some things had an experience the
Uhor evening which Is not common. The
s'cw York Tribune tells the story. Ho had
akcn some friends to the theater , nnd af-
orwards they went to a hotel on Fifth ave-
iiie for supper. ' When the waiter brought
he bill the host discovered nn error of 50
: cnts In addition and handed It back to
he waiter. The waller apologized , took
iway the bill and shortly returned with It.
iVhllo the host was scanning the Items a
ieconil tlmo he ran his hand In his pocket
'or his money. A blank look came over his
'ace , .ind ho said to the waller :
"I have forgotten my money , keys and
ivcrythlng. Will you explain to the cashier
ind tell him that I will send a check to-
norrow ? My name Is "
"Oh , " answered the waiter , "never mind
ibout that. I'll pay the bill , sir. " This
laving a waiter offer to pay one's bill
ather stunned the host , but as ho was not
siiown to the hotel ho thought the witest
hlng to do was to accept the proposition ,
; o ho took the waiter's name , saying :
"All right , Ernest , I'll como In on my
vay down town In the morning and hand
'ou the money. "
"Von needn't trouble to do that sir , " nald
truest , "you could hand It to me the next
line you como In. "
The next morning when the forgetful man
vent to the hotel to reimburse the waiter
10 gave him a "fat tip , " of course. That
vas what Ernest was counting on.
