Papa Rill got his annual consignment of
bats from Jark Pickett. Jack la now bat
Inspector for the Spalding factory, and each
spring about this time he sends to Pa a
dosen of the beat bats mado by the factory
during the winter. They are of selected
econd growth ah, tough aa hickory and
full of base hlta. Jack plcka 'em out him
self, and accompanied them with a bill and
a letter full of good wishes for Omaha.
Thla aeaaon'a consignment la timely, for
the bats will be wielded by a husky bunch
of aluggera In the Omaha uniform. The
other event was the receipt of a letter from

would ba down from the anowbanka In

be turned over to him then. Papa BUI has
been busy at the smokehouse, alljweek, an

Will It Be Eight CInbsf
The Western league circuit question Is
tiot closed yet. At a called meeting of the
National Commission, to be held In New
TorU. President O'Nell Is to present the
matter, urging that the Western be allowed
to draft TopekA from the Bhlvely circuit,
paying therefor $2,600. If O'Nell can make
hla talk win, SL Joe will be put Into com
mission and a schedule for eight teams will
be announced very soon afterwards. Tho
Western league schedule can not be framed
until thla matter Is fixed up. It will be a
distinct advantage to get Tnpeka In, and
the magnates think that with proper care
St. Joseph can be made to pay Its way at
least. An elght club circuit for the Wes
tern Is much to be desired. It looks bad to
have a Class A league playing short two
teams. Good players can be secured for
both Topeka and Bt. Joseph and Other
things settled In very short meter If tha
word Is given by. the National Commission.
Amateur Ball Teams Busy.
The amateur base ball teams of Omaha
re fast getting their men together to be
ready for the first blush of spring. Last
week the Townsend Qun club base ball
team held Its annual meeting, at which
time H. 8. Townsend was elected president,
. H. Morearty,' treasurer and captain, and
. 1'rank Qulgley manager and secretary.
IlscusBlon of the prospects for the coming
' year showed a great Improvement over
.' this time last season. When the season
. opens the team will have a thoroughly
equipped base ball ground, situated but
one block from the street car line. A
grandstand will be built, but this will be
free to all spectators as the grounds will
Hot be enclosed. The opening game la
scheduled with the Ramblers for March SI.
The Townsend team had a good reputation
last year and the boys hope to Improve It
this year. Last year waa Mr. Townsend's
first attempt to put a team In the field
and under the management of Frank Qulg
ley a atart waa made at the bottom of the
ladder, but It was different at the end of
the season, for they were considered about
as good aa any other amateur team. Last
year the Townsends played twenty-six
Barnes and won eighteen of them. Two
were lost and two were tied. 8even of
the twenty-sis games played went to over
nine Innings. Many changes have been
rrifyi in last year's lineup. Three players
' have been dropped because of their In
ability to hit the ball, and. three others
have already been signed lrl their places
who are considered good enough to ma
terially strengthen the team. These ad
ditions will make the team a slugging
bunch. Townsend says he will have the
best team In Omaha; and as the best team
Should be the best outfitted he will pro
vide the best cream-colored suits with blue
trimmings to be had. The lineup will be
as follows: F. Qulgley, catcher; Baker,
Morearty and Eastman, pitchers; Weberg,
Barto, Shestak, Johnson and Miller, In-
fielders, and Eastman, Parmelee, Kinney,
Cassldy and Moeller, outfielders. The team
is In need of another good catcher who
can change oft at first. The manager's
address Is F. Qulgley, - 3111 Maple street.
Rod and Gni Club.
The Omaha Rod and Gun club made
food move In the right direction last week
when' loads of sand were hauled on the
, ' Ice near the club house, which wilt settle I
when the Ice melts and thus make a splen
' ' did bathing place. The water at the lake
la. fine for-bathing and of lato years has
' been Improving. There are plenty of springs
at Cut-Off to keep the water in good con
dition. Many are planning to camp near
the club house this summer, and some are
already making their preparations. New
boats are bring built and the lake will
be a lively spot this summer.
Golfers t'p aad Dolns.
Laat Sunday aaw the links of both the
outdoor clubs of Omaha crowded with
eager golfers, who took up the work just
where la waa left off last fall. The same

Athletics at Cornell.
In an Interview published In The Bee
Thursday afternoon, and later at the Cor
nell alumni , smoker at the Omaha club
Thursday night. Jacob Oould Schurman,
preeldent of Cornell university, one of the
lending educators of the country,- said he
considered his university had solved the
great problem of college athletics by which
the student body could obtain recreation
and the great benefit to be derived from
outdoor sports Instead of the few who had
heretofore tried for the foot ball, base ball,
track teams and crews. "We recognise
sports as a branch of our curriculum," said
President Bchurman. "and athletics, or else
military drill with its setting up exercises,
are compulsory unless some good excuse Is
presented, for freshmen artd sophomores.
We. want every student In college to take
some form of exercise and we let him
choose any which he might prefer. Borne
llko foot ball, some base ball and others
'golf or tennis or rowing. We require them
to report on the kind of sport they are en
gaging in and a record Is kept. We hare
set aside a flfty-five-acre field aa a play
ground and part of this will be used as an
athletic field, but we do not propose to let
Intercollegiate 1 games predominate to the
exclusion of a chance to exercise for the
bulk of the students. With a good, healthy
student body the Intercollegiate games will
take care of themselves""
This problem has been the worry of many
colleges and many faculties have opposed
foot ball and base boll because It absorbed
all the attention of the students while but
few could participate In the games. The
smaller students, not strong- enough for
the more severe games, were left without
a sport and these were the very ones who
needed the exercise more than their
stronger brothers. Under this system in
vogue at Cornell all may have a chance
to get plenty of healthy exercise.
Y. M. O. A. Gysa.
The date for the opening of the new
Young Men's Christian association gym
nasium was again given a setback last
week by a caveln of the artesian well
which Is being sunk for the tank and
baths. The drill had reached a depth of
over 700 feet when a caveln caught the
drill at the bottom of the well. A smaller
drill -was set to work and had to work
Its way down from 400 feet, taking nearly
the entire week to reach the other drill.
The directors do not like to use any water
but artesian in the new tank, as the
sandy water of the Missouri would dis
color the tank. The Racquet club ha also
arranged to use the water from the ar
tesian well for Its swimming pool, a the
expensive filter does not eem to do' the
work expected of It.
NO BALE OF FOWL AMD FISH HOW
Traffic la Game shot OB ay Passage
Word was received Baturday afternoon
that Governor Sheldon had signed H.
R, 98, which prohibits the sale of all
kinds of game Mi-da and fish protected by
law. As It bears an emergency clause It
will go Into effect within three days, and
then woe be unto the dealer who offers on
his counter any of the forbidden fowl or
fish. The law provides a heavy penalty for
violation and is very stringent In its terms
The bill was one of a series Introduced
by the game and fish committees of the two
houses and It is the only one of the num
ber that Deputy Game Warden Carter Is
much Interested In. He believes the real
reason for the most flagrant violations of
the game law Is commercialism, shooting
for the market. Tho new law will prevent
thi hv holishlna- the market. Hereafter
any person with an appetite for prairie
chicken, wild ducks or quail will have to
go without his ravonte dan or go oui ana
shoot the birds himself, unless, of course,
he can get on the good aide of a liberal
The bill prohibits the sale of game at
any time and makes It unlawful to have
any of It In ones possession five days after
the close of the open season.

The annual election of the Omaha Rod
and Gun club will be held at the city hall
Thursday. The club ha a membership of
600 members and considerable Interest Is
being worked up over the election of of
ficers, a several parties have been formed
within the club for the honor of naming
the officers. A yacht club has been or
ganised within the Omaha Rod and Oun
club. The present member of the yacht
club are-! Dr. H. B. Lemere, Sidney W.
Smith, M. E. Be rat, C. C. Morgan, Pier
pont, 1L 8. Daniel. William J. Coad. Dr.
Jensen, Ward Palmer. H. W. Wood. La R.
Bostwlck. R. Manley, J. A. Rlne and
Charles D. Armstrong. The yachtsmen met
last night and elected officers aa follows:
Commodore, O. F. Drefold; fleet captain,
A. C. Hartman; -secretary, A. F. Bloom;
treasurer, Frank Lundstrom.
The Inception of the Omaha Yacht club
waa a sail on a nice breesy afternoon last
summer on Cut-Off lake in a flat bottom,
center board skiff which was generally
known a the Open Cat. Thl boat was
about fourteen feet long and four foot
beam, with a sail that waa a compromise
between a sprit and a lug. The Barrister,
the Doctor, the Buccaneer, Plerp and the
Philosopher were the crew and the day
was full of such pleasing Incident that a
yacht club and a full fledged yacht were
determined on forthwith. To the member
of this original crew were added the Sport.
the Prosecutor, another Doctor, an Old
Bait from Bonnie Dundee and the Ice Man.
These ten charter members launched and
fitted out the good yacht Patience on the
Fourth of July of last year.
The races on Cut-Off lake last year were
many and exciting and the Patience was
o prominent In these events that the In
terest In the sport grew to such a degree
that thla winter the -club was materially
enlarged, new member added and is now
building two more yachts. One will be a
large sloop designed after the lines of the
winning yacht on the Great Lakes the
last two seasons, the other a power boat
of handsome design and fittings.
The club also has under discussion the
building of a new club house when spring
opens. Yachting on Cut-Off lake prac
tically had It birth the last season. The
need was felt and the response was Im
mediate, and almost any day a doxen or
fifteen sails could be seen on the lake.
Several new yacht will be added to the
fleet the coming spring and the summer
carnival should see twenty-five flne ves
sels In line and the Interest In the sport
cannot help doubling under the Influence
of so flne a spectacle.
The Rod and Gun club, which took up
It headquarter on the lake last summer,
ha grown to such large proportion that
It will be compelled to build a new club
house with -dancing pavilion and float and
locker for It yachting members this ea
son. Cottage are going up all around the
lake and the park board has under con
sideration parking a long strip on the north
shore. Cut-Off. with the easy access af
forded by the two car lines which reach
It. with the natural beauty . of It sur
roundings, it grassy banks and'foresta of
fine old tree and. the vista which open
up a one sails along It shore and around
the points which project out Into the lake,
promljes to become the most popular In
land lake In the west. Cut-Off. In addition
to all of these attractions. Is well stocked
with bass and crappy, and It Is no un
common thing to see a string of half a
dosen four or five-pounders as the fisher
men land after an afternoon' sport.
All plan are ready for the wrestle be
tween Fanner Burn and Oscar Wasem at
the Auditorium Wednesday night. This
match promise to be a veritable tug-of-war.
Fan who know both men and have
seen them do their best assert they are as
closely matched a any two men In the
west. They are near the same site and
employ much the same tactics. Bach ha
won a signal victory at the Auditorium
within the last few weeks. Burns throwing
Charles Hackenachmldt two out of three
and Wasem doing the same with Matt
Simmer, the Iowa giant, seventy pounds
heavier than himself.
Farmer Burn will have two of hi boys,
Charley, It, and Raymond, 13 year of age,
with him Wednesday night. They will be
the whole show In the preliminaries, giving
exhibition In boxing, wreatllng and aero
batlc feat. They are finely trained little
athlete and do work that Is attracting
great attention. Charley weigh seventy
pounds and Raymond ninety. They are
evenly matched In all tbeir contests. Their
father Is their trainer and works no harder
on himself than he doea on them.
Backers of . thl event are counting on
the largest crowd of any that has turned
out since the wrestling matches began,
An element of remarkable Interest attaches
to the Burns-Wasem match because of the
fact that the winner will wrestle Dan Mc
Leod. the veteran who has been In the
front rank of wrestlers for some years.
McLeod has already laid down his chal

Ed Hanlnn, former manager of Brooklyn,
and F. A. Abbell have brought suit against
the Brooklyn management for 40.i0 with
Interest, bringing the total up to about
t'AOOO. The claim Is money loaned Brook

dropped by the National league In W.
when that became an eight-club league
and 140.000 waa paid to Baltimore for drop
ping It. Baltimore loaned the money to
Brooklyn when the latter was embar
rassed. At least this Is the story.
Joss and Rhoades, two Cleveland pitchers
who think they were made exceptions In
the matter of salary raises which that club
gave to Its players for the coming year,
have returned their contracts unsigned.
Joss' contract for last season called for a
salary of $2,700. with a bonus If he won as
many as twenty games. He won more
than that number and got the coin. The
contract he has Just turned down offers a
straight salary of $3,000. Rhoades won a
bonus last year and the contract he has
rejected provided an Increase over his reg
ular salary of last year, but with no bonus.
Mordecal Brown, the premier pitcher of
the Cube, has returned his contract signed
for the season. He held It for some time
before affixing his signature. What salary
he gets Is not publicly known.
Here Is Lincoln's lineup so far: Zlnran

third base; Davidson. Ketchum and Fen

Pes Molne has secured a couple of good
ball players In Woodruff, a catcher, and
Clarke, a pitcher, from the Cotton States
league. The men are youngsters, Clarke
being the leading pitcher of the Cotton
States lost year. The men were drafted
by Cleveland last fall, but the rigorous
slashing which Lajole has been Indulging
In among his recruits left them without a
home and they were turned over to Des
Moines. Frank O'Leary, the little short
stop of last year's team, was turned back
to Des Moines at the same time and will
be the regular shortstop of the team this
year. This make the Des Moines team
complete with the exception of getting the
permission of the powers that be to play
Kelly on the first base lines. Des Moines
President Morton has already selected
three O. and P. umpires. They are Arlfe
Latham. Bill Bannon of Canton and Wil
liam List. These men either have accepted
terms or signed contracts. Latham will be
one of the biggest drawing cards In the
league. He used to play third base for St.
Iouls and at that time waa known as the
clown of base ball. His coaching never has
been equaled snd probably never will be.
Latham played there from 1883 to 1889.
Last season he was an umpire In the
Southern league and was regarded as a
good one. The southern climate does not
agree with him and he prefers to remain
In the north. Latham is 43 years of age.
At the present time he Is a referee In the
Interstate Polo league, where he Is re
garded well Itv fanatics and players.
The bllls-on the game laws are all In

How to Calculate Battlna- Averages.
C. A. Barr of Pawnee City, Neb., asks
how to figure batting averages, and wants
to know If bases on balls count. The bat-V.n?J-av'rae
of P'yer Is determined by
dividing the number of safe hits made by
the number of times i hat Wn. n.t.
If a player has been 135 times at bat and
has made 13 safe hits, his average would

on balls, a base on being hit by ball or
when a batter sacrifices by bunting Is not
counted as a time at bat and does not figure

So highly contagious is the trouble that innocent persons may contract i
by using the same table ware, toilet articles or clothing of one in whost

the blood but have weakened the entire system because of their destructive

Mild Argument In Hayes County There
was a little shooting occurred on the Fisher
ranch on the Willow last Sunday morning.
Mr. Fisher and Henry Barth, an employe
nf tha ranch, had a fawr vmrria which ra. v
suited In the discharge of Mr. Barth. He J
left the house and In a short time Mr.t
Fisher stepped to the door and saw Mr.
Bart,h crouched down In the road a few
yard from the house with a 38-callber
revolver pointed' at him. He grabbed a
club and started for the young man and
ran him off. He returned to the house
and In a short time Mr. Fisher and wife
stepped out door and were fired at twice
by Mr. Barth, both balls missing aim,
but went clear through the house. Ho ar
rests have been made as yet. Hayes Center
A Good Dog Dies Jake Brown' black
dog, Jim, has been sent to the place where
good old dogs go. - For the past year the
dog ha grown cross and lately' took to fits.
This dog has a record of being the best In
the neighborhood. .Many, a time he. ha
gone alone 'three-quarters of a mile after
the cows. He didn't make them run, or
bite their heels. But one horse ever kicked )
him; after that he nipped the heels snd
laid low until the horse kicked, then tot
away. The hog whose ear he chewed al
ways afterward was good to drive. He had
a knack of always being In the right place f
until old age stole his reason. There arr J
some who remember Jim as being the causlek
of a threshing machine navlng to stop. A
man was imposing on a boy. Jim objected
by chewing the man's overalls. The man
wanted to kill the dog, but the thresher
said, "not today." Jim was a peacemaker.
There was no fighting among the stock
while he was around; he wanted In on such
sport. His great sport waa hunting. Once,
year ago, a boy unnecessarily whipped
him. To his dying day Jim waa always
ready to pinch the lad's feet. The young
man knew why the hatred was, so always
watched the dog. Skunks, rat and rabbit
stayed away from him. He liked to catch
sparrows at night. He never rorgot a
friend nor forgave a foe. It' too bad a
good dog' life I so short. Clay correspond
