T IS , INDEED ,
curious to learn of
the vagaries of for
tune , to which
Eomo people owe
their start on the
road to wealth and
fame , and , having
occasion to hunt
up Information re
Ebrlght , I discov
ered that ho first
met his father way
up among the lava beds of Utah. There ,
mid the sago brush and Inhospitable
waste , he began the life of ono who , by his
own unaided effort , In after years rose to
tli3 proud height of the boss of Lincoln's
As yet , however , the people of this great
and glorious land have manifested little In
terest In Duck's birthplace , but when ho
dies thcro Is but little doubt that all the
railroads will run mammoth excursions to
the place where they plant him.
IJut Buck took no part In yesterday's
affray. Ho sat In the grand stand nursing
* thumb that looked like a 15-ccnt soup
bone. The day before he undertook to stop
a hot grounder from Pa's bat with this
Injured member and the result was that
the hot grounder got the best of the argu
ment , Inasmuch as his thumb was Jammed
back Into his hand until It looked like the
butt of a 6-cont cigar. So yesterday Basil
Doverenux officiated where Duck's manly
proportions are wont to exhibit themselves.
Basil did his very best , and tried hard not
to allow any good playing' to creep In and
Inar his rotten work. If a rat , by accident ,
had gotten hold of a piece of Basil's playIng -
Ing and eaten it , It would have killed him
on the spot.
Smarting under the spanking Pa gave him
Friday , Duck brought out young Mr. Oscar
Barnes , a regular psychic phenomenon , jes-
torday for the purpose of turning the tables.
Ho might as well have tried'to make the
Missouri river run backwards.
Mr. Barnes Is fresh from college , and , after
o fashion , is a very nice sort of a chap.
Ilia habits are simple and ho wears plain
Clothes , his shirt and collar being made
off of the same piece. That Isn't a bit like
Buck , who , when ho goes out for a kill
ing , wears a pink shirt and a blue , collar ,
Just like Charllo Branch.
Mr. Barnes owes much of his skill in
pitching to his father , who for nearly thirty
Jrears has done nothing but pitch hay in
Ihe Platte valley. These facts I gleaned
from an editorial In a handbill published
flown at the state capital called the State
Journal. The editorial was ono of Billy
Owen Jones' very best. It is graphic and
Succinct , but of course lacks the sensa
tional elements so common and so lamentable
In metropolitan newspapers.
Out that Is neither hero nor there , In
asmuch as Mr. Jones Is yet to have his first
experience on a newspaper.
MADE TROUBLE FROM THE FIRST.
There was another largo and fashionable
crowd at the park yesterday , and they were
half tickled to death to see Pa slam the
Country boys around the lot Just like so
many old hoop skirts.
The sport did not open up very aus
piciously , for the clodhoppers ladled out
( n largo geese egg for Pa's delectation , then
Came right In themselves and tore oft a
couple of tallies.
Dennis McCarthy was the first one of the
bumpkins to dare face Alexander Whltehlll.
Dennis Is tall , lean and awkward , with in
tellectual knee Joints and largo , sorrowful
foot. He balanced himself on the tip of his
big toe , and when Alex disconnected rela
tionship with the sphere , Dennis hit It a
rhythmic plunk that sounded like the hired
man's socks dropping on the bare floor !
Buck Hughes came next. Buck Is a plain ,
long breasted man , with a downcast coun
tenance and low-cut mouth. Ho Is nearly
as big as Buck Ebrlght , but not half as
beautiful. Ho was restless and eager , and
all at once shoved a swift one down toward
Hutch , and Hutch snatched at it , but It coyly
eluded his grasp , and Buck was safe , while
Mr. McCarthy took third.
Catcher Speer , who Is built something like
a. wheelbarrow , then sauntered up to the
plato , and swinging his tree , viciously lifted
ono out to AVllllo MeVey , and , stunned and
helpless , recoiled to the bench.
The next man who developed was Martin
McQuald , the son of old Jim McQuald , who
used to play marbles with my great grand
father In New York when NeV York was
called New Amsterdam. Dy the way , a
story was circulated some years ago to the
effect that Martin once mads a base hit
somewhere back In the New England league ,
but before ho could get to first base the
center fielder caught the ball.
That Isn't true , for statistics show that It
was the second baseman who caught It , and
this Is only a fair sample of how a story
about a great man grows and becomes dis
torted at the same time. People who haven't
anything better to do In life than to go about
telling such Improbable stories would do
well to ascertain the truth of these reports
before giving them circulation. Thus It Is
that men who have acquired good names
by doing nothing are made the target for the
poisoned shafts of contumely.
Well , Martin had Just arrived and was a
bit nervous , but ho swung his club and the
pigskin flew like a bird Into Langsford's
Illy white shovels , and ho fired the cadaver
ous McCarthy out at the pan.
Of course there were a few bouquets thrown
at the Langy for this bit cf brilliant
work , and , by the way , this pie-faced Indi
vidual Is playing ball in a way that Is oc
casioning a good deal of talk. Llko the
breath of the man who has been eating
onions , his presence can bo > letectod at a
great distance , and why hoAas allowed to
CECJpo from the big league Is i no of those
things no fellow can Iliul out.
But to continue my story.
Longsford had no sooner made this re
fulgent play than Alex made a throw as
wild as a March Jack rabbit , and Basil
rushed homo and McQuald loped to third.
Then John L. Sullivan Jabbed an outshoot
In the wind and the relic of the colonial
times festered upon the plate.
And thus the clodhoppers had two runs
to gloat over.
. WHERE AVB WON IT.
I In the fourth Pa gouged his too nails
Into the pan and we were spared the
Ignominy of a shut out. First Pa soaked
Mr , Barnes for a single , but not until after
both Hutch and Tear had been ( lagged. Mc
Quald let the bounding sphere get through
his Kgs and Pa lumbered on to second ,
whence ho ran clean home on Peddy's Im
An empty hiatus hero Intervened until
the sixth Inning was uncorked , when the
festive Hourltes began to take unwarrant
able liberties with joung Mr. Barnes , Up
to this time he had pitched masterly pall ,
and It looked as If wo had saved ourselves
by an eyebrow.
But , according to Billy Owen Jpnes' edi
tor * l , Mr. Barnes Is u cross between a
\ Scotchman and a native of south Cherry
\ county. Prom the highland branch of the
( family ho obtained bis wild yearning to
associate with Buck Ebrlght , and from
Cherry county his great speed , his love
for mush and his clinging nature. Ac
cording to Editor Jouea , these two races
don't mix , their offspring li apt to
quit at a critical Btage of the gnme , and
young Mr. Barnes * work yesterday bears
First Wllllo DIM Moran hit him a welt
that curdled the salaratus In Mlnv't lemon
ade. Then Hutch smashed him add lu
lost control of the hoghlde entirely.
It is Mid that Jack IJaaUcIl has such
powers of mentality that he Is enabled to
distinguish a ball from a strike as readily
as Buck Ebrlght can distinguish a free lunch
from a ? 2 bill.
Anyway , Mr. Barnes gave Fear his base
on balls. That was generous in the young
man , wasn't It ? H always pays to do a
kind act. I know this to bo true , tot a
great deal of my own great wealth was
acquired by assisting men like Herman
Kount ; ? and Henry W. Yates when they
were In a tight place.
The bags wcro now all occupied , but In
Pa's little hollow-eyed push down to John L ,
Wllllo Dill Moran "bit the duit" at the plate.
"Bit the dust" Is an original phrase of
mine and Is used here for the first time.
However , no one was sorry because Bill bit ,
for didn't Peddy soak young Mr. Darncs
for one of the most timely singles you ever
saw ? Well , I guess yes. Hutch and Fear
both scored ,
In their half the Jays took ono and the
game was tied. After Specr and McQuald
had been properly laid away , John L. con
nected safely , and Alex , not to be outdone by
Mr , Darncs , gave Devereaux and Wood a
Piggy then stepped up to clear the bases.
Piggy Is all right. He still cats pie with
his knife , drinks out of the finger bowl and
In many other ways manages to endear him
self to the best families In Lincoln. This
lime , however , the best ho could do was a
single , but It let Sully homo and the score
In the seventh wo took two more , and that ,
too , after Oscar had thrown both Langy and
Captain Mac out at first. Then Wllllo Bill
made a slnglo and Hutch lifted her over the
barn for four.
Seeing how things wcro going Manager
Hlckey started a petition to have Oscar taken
out of the box. Buck Ebrlght received It
and said he would take favorable action upon
It , but he wanted time. His delay was fatal.
In the ninth the Uourkcs Jumped upon Oscar
for the third tlmo and pounded out another
block of two.
And that settled It , and everybody went
away as happy as If they had Just paid a
month's rent In advance.

Lively Amateur Qamcs ,
"Qusslo" Connor ,
who used to twirl
the sphere for the
Young Men's Chris
tian association base
ball team , moons
ago , before Ab
bott's hair had
formed a porous
plaster on the back
of his neck , and when the Christians were con
tented to win a game once In a while without
taking them all and spreading on whitewash
to boot ? Well , Gusslo hasn't been playing
with the Christians this year. Ho has been
husking pumpkins down at Cook , If you
know where that Is , nnd trying to forget
that ho had once been so foolish as to waste
his tlmo trying to get an Inshoot over the
plato when there wcro so many brilliant
Inducements to lure him to life on a farm.
But the athletic passion would not down ,
and sometime last spring ho collected a
choice assortment of farm hands and brick
yard mechanics and started out to tour the
state. He was pretty successful , too , and
several sorts of ambitious amateurs went
down before Gussle's brawny arm , aided
and abetted by the efforts of his husky hired
men.But Gussle's ambition soared higher than
these little by-plays. He wanted to bring
his aggregation to Omaha to show his one-
tlmo colleagues how easy It was to win If
one only knew how. Every time he heard
how the Christians had whitewashed the
Council Bluffs Maroons or wiped up the d'a-
mend with the Squash Hollow Stars , his
anxiety to lower their colors grew Into a
state of ungovernable frenzy , and yielding to
his Impassioned appeals Captain Abbott re
luctantly consented to allow his pets to be
come martyrs to Gussle's mounting ambition.
That was how It came about that the
Christians and the Cook haymakers met at
the Young Men's Christian association park
yesterday afternoon. But Gussle didn't
know what Captain Abbott had laid up
against him , or ho would have preferred to
re"nialn In the seclusion of his native sage
brush. It was a Waterloo , a Bunker Hill
and an Appomattox all rolled Into one , with
a little bit of San Jaclnto and Tlppecanoe
thrown In for relish. Talk about rubbing It
in those Christians didn't leave a piece of
the Cook aggregation big enough to season
a wdnervvurst. They Just toyed with them
for on Inning by way of leading them on
and then they went to work and JumpoJ or
them until the remains will be sent back
to Cook on a postal card.
The feature of the game was Jellen's
magnlficsnt work. He held the visitors
down to sK scattering hits and did not give
a single additional base. Only seven of Gus
sle's crowd reached first base during the entire -
tire nine innings , the odd ono taking life
on a rather poor throw by Rustln , which
caused Jefferis to take his foot from the
base while the runner went over It. This
was the only semblance of an error which
could be charged up to the Christians , while
their fielding abounded in brilliant plays.
Lavvler mada several brilliant running
catches , while Rustin's circus catch of Har
rison's fly in the eighth inning was a
But hit , how those good young men did
Jump on to Gussle'a slants. They pounded
them for a total of thirty-eight bases , Jellen
alone batting out more bases' ' than all of
the visitors put together. Not content with
shutting out the farmers , he Insisted on
leading the batting himself , with five runs
and five hits , with a total of eleven bas-'s.
His home run over the left field fence was
the longest hit that has been made on the
grounds this year. Rustln , Robinson and
Lawler also fattened their batting averages
and Abbott was the only man who did not
get at least a couple of hits.

horses and see some falrlv good racing.
A. A. Stnrny has charge of the program
for each week , and during the remainder
of the season there will be weekly meetings
of this character. The races yesterday
Were falrlv fast , and WInslovv Wllkes ,

HEN THE OMAHA
delegates to the
state tennis cham
pionship contest at
It wai with glowIng -
Ing accounts of
the way they were
treated and the en
thusiasm that was
manifested by the
cltbens of that city
In the event.
The four courts of
the Hastings club were In excellent condition
and everything was done by the management
to make a thorough , success of the occasion.
The whole city seemed to bo Imbued with the
same spirit. The mayor gave the visitors
the freedom of the city and made no objec
tion when he was taken at his word.
As to the play every ono who was there
agrees that it was of a high standard. The
dally reports In The Bee's telegraphic
columns have shown the closeness of mnny
of the contests , but mere scores can hardly
tell the whole tale of a well fought match
In which each point Is stubbornly struggled
for , and the rests are only won after each
sldo his exhausted Its skill
Omaha fccnt down four pairs , Hastings
had no fewer than six , Ord s ° nt two and
Grand Island one. This made a total of
thirteen teams competing for the champion
ship and every team was capable of putting
up a good gam" . Hastings' strongest pair
drewa bye and had only three matches to
play , although they reached the Hnal and
came very near winning the championship.
Johnson and Oitllmctte showed such a mas
tery of the game , Indeed , that If they had
carried on the first honors no one would have
grudged them the title. Their work against
the champions , as they now are , that is
Austin and Battln , clearly showed that al
though Omaha may continue to hold first
place she Is for from being able to lay claim
to a monopoly of men of championship rank.
Johnson especially plays a very strong game ,
but both of them hit their balls well , send
ing them In low and fast. It would need but
little steady practice , Indeed , to give them
bufllclcnt accuracy to plare them ahead of
the pair that beat them by a margin of a
single game , and Indeed of a single ace , two
Dungan and Wahlqulst , who have ranked
as ono of Hastings' strongest pairs In years
gone by , did not show to any great advan
tage. They were pitted against Haverstlck
and Caldvvell In the first round and only
managed to capture four games In the thiee
sets. Three of the four other hoina teams
were also unlucky enough to be knocked out
In the first round.
CHAMPIONS EARNED THEIR TITLE.
Austin and Battln , who won the cham
pionship and brought It to Omaha , started
out with a love set from Duer and Poweis
of Hastings , but had to work for the rjst
of that match , and In the other three that
they played they never had any reason to
feel sure of the match until it was finished.
In the second round Young and Cookson
made an excellent fight. Cookson was es
pecially powerful. He covered his side of
the court In great shape and seldom let a
chance go by. He showed confidence at
all stages of the game and hit his balls
with a precision that deserved success. If
Young had been able to do his share of
the work many of those who vveie there
are of tha opinion that the result would
have been different. Behind the court Is
a bank , and , In running back to return a
lobbed ball , Young stumbled and hurt his
leg. This prevented him from holding up
his end , as ho should have don ? , and It was
impossible for one man to win alone. The
fact that when this accident occurred
Young and CooKson led by four games to
love In the first set Indicates the , difference
that It made.
After this Austin and Batttn met the crack
Ord pair , Mllford and Foght , who also gave
them something of a struggle. Mllford Is
probably ono of the strongest players In the
state outside of the three largest towns ,
and after his performance at Hastings It Is
by no means certain that ho would not
show up to good advantage when pitted
against the strongest men of the state. If
he comes down to Omaha for the state sin
gles this week , as he is talking of doing ,
there will bo a chance to see how he stands.
Caldwell and Haverstlck got through two
rounds with the loss of only seven games In
six sets and were knocked out In the semi
final by Johnson and Gullmctte. This last
was a very scientific game and there was
very little difference between the pairs. It
seemed to be a toss-up indeed which would
win. The Omaha pair , however , did not
hold themselves together as well as they
should have done at the end and lost. It
was remarked at the close of the contest that
a finer exhibition of tennis as It should bo
was never witnessed on the Hastings courts.
It Is said that If Johnson and Gnllmetto
had carried off the championship honors It
would have given a big Impetus to the game
In the city.
SINGLES BEGIN WEDNESDAY.
On Wednesday next the other half of the
state championship tournament opens hero In
Omaha. It will bo a greater success than If
the Hastings meeting had fallen through.
Several players who were there and got on
well will expect to do equally well here and
have decided to come. The regrettable ab
sence of the Lincoln contingent from the
doubles will no doubt bo compensated for
this week , and promises , more or less
definite , have also been received from quite
a number of other towns In the state.
Hastings promises at least four entries ,
probably Dungan , Wahlqulst , Johnson and
Oliver. Lincoln's delegation will probably bo
Hicks , Shcpnrd , Gelstlmrdt and Jackbon.
Grand Island will send down Abbott and
Nusz , who were at Hastings , and they expect
to bring several others along with them.
Spaftord and Skerrct of Kearney may corno
and Mlndcn , Arapahoe and Geneva are each
expected to have a representative here. Mll
ford of Ord has also expressed his Intention
to como If ho can.
Whether all these promises will provo
good or not of course cannot bo told until
the draw finally closes on Tuesday night
next. It has been found necessary to ex
tend the tlmo for the receiving of entries
to that day In order to accommodate the
large number of outsiders who are anxious
In any case the tournament Is assured
of success so far as the list of competitors
Is concerned , for about ten of Omaha's pick
have signified their Intention of entering , and
above all , Culllnglmm expects that by the
tlmo the all-comers' competition is ended his
hand will have sulllclently recovered to enable -
able him to defend his title. The chal
lenge round will not bo played until Satur
day afternoon at any rate , and the wound Is
now making sufficient progress to justify
him In anticipating that by that time he
will bo able to play.
The club Is making every preparation for
the accommodation of largo crowds through
out the tournament , and every ono who
attends will bo provided with a scat.
OUTLOOK TOH THE INTERSTATE.
For the Interstate meet , which Is to begin
on the 20th of next month , and continue
through that week , there are great promises.
The Nebraska players appear to think nioro
of this than of the state event , and no
fewer than eight towns In Iowa alone have
responded to the Invitation to send repre
sentatives , with an Intimation that they
will have at least ono delegate here when
the tlmo rolls around , Other towns that
have promised to send representatives are
Kansas City , Mo , Kansas City. Kan. ,
Lawrence , Kan , Colorado Springs , Yatikton ,
8. D , , and Cheyenne. Only about four or
five of the best pairs and about eight or
nine players In the singles will enter from
Omaha , but they will he the strongest men
In the city , as It Is Intended that the tourna
ment shall bo a fair trial of strength be.
