and anxious to shoot , but Frank didn't give
him , the chance Hardin waited until 6

When Jack Doyle returned to 10lyoke after
the Temple cup series last fall ho placed his
bank roll In a national bank. Jack had
quie a lively wInter , sporting and elec-

been overdrawn and requested a aetticinont.

tree that every time a Baltimore player
started for second base It ' was counted a ,

Then , too , there may have been a bushel of' '
stolen bases given on bases made from second I

statement from Von den Abe that an orthodox I

A castle In French or Norman Gothic
style , wIth : rather more elaborate detail than
Is customary In buildings of that design , Is
to be erected on the alto of the old Cliff
house says the San Francisco Examiner.
The plain , square , wooden building which was
a landmark , succumbed to the flames on the
evening of Christmas day , and nothing but
memories of the familiar place were left.
Its successor wi be a much more Imposing
modern structure , but I will lack those
memorIes which hovered around the simple
house on the edge of th9 qcean.
Adolph Sutro has decided upon thin form
and arrangement of the hew building. The
building Is to cost In round figures $50,000.
I will be built entirely of wood , as no other
material Is so well calculated to withstand
the corrosive erect of the salt sea air I

and nInety-two feet from north to south

three parts will bo characterized by being
virtually alconles projecting \ from each of
thin four storIes. The French character of
the building will bo displayed principally In
the main part and the round Norman towers
wIth theIr conical and pyramidal spIres.
The detail of ornamentation will be essen-
taly French
Two of the stories wi be above the street
level and two below I on the slopIng taco
of the clIffs. Thin

the north and south end anti on the east side
