Opera National Game in
Italy; San Carlo Singers
Bat ,300 in the Pinches
Music .critics say that grnd opera
is Italy's nation game; that the Ital
ians are not only players, but fans;
that they keep score, hits, runs, tr-4
rors, especially errors; that the small
boys fight in the street over the mer
its of singers and write to the sport
ing editors asking who leads inhe
league of singing, who is the best
tenor, the best baritone, etc, just as
boys write and fight about base ball
plavers in this country.
People in Italy want to know who
is the better tenor Caruso or Sala
zar, just as people in New York want
to know who is the better player Hap
Felsch or Benny Kauff. Averages
are kept and every now and. then j
there is an argument about the re
spective merits,, of the old and new
smgers. . They "knock; or "boost"
singers in Italy as we "knock" or
"boost" base ball players in America.
Difference of opinion makes base
ball and horse racing -in America.
v Jealousy, It seems, difference of opin
ion as to which man has , a better
right to the lady or the lady the bet
ter right to the man, seems, to make
grand opera. The Italians. takev a
vast interest in all these things.
Opera companies, likj base ball,
, have managers. Fortune Gallo of
the San Carlo Grand Opera company
is the John McGraw of the Opera
league. He picked up a club a few
years ago that had been low down in
the race, got himself a few stars like
Salazar, Antola, Craft, Royer, De
Biasi, and is now winning the cham
pionship. His captain is Charles R.
Baker. Some day Gallo may play the
Metropolitan for the world's operatic
jfimpionship. Gallo is the "Miracle
'3an" of the opera. He can take a
club that runs last one season and
win the championship with it the
next. He can even talk a singer out
of a week's salary, and any one that
can do that gets by. ,
Salazar is one of the strongest men
in the Grand Opera league. He is a
regular Hans Wagner in strength and
hitting ability. His brother" played
the part of Ursus, the strong man,
who snatches the girl off the horns of
the angry bull in "Quo Vadis." Sala
zar comes from the Basque provinces
in Spain, where "pelota ball" is the
national game. He is one of the San
Carlo "pinch-hitting" tenors. The
other is Agnostini, who reaches up
and hits awfully high ones, causes
much "rooting" and scores many
"runs.". He also takes everything
thatvcomes his way. . Italians, how
ever, ate not the only ones that like
opera. The Americans like it, too.
The Forty-fourth Street theater, New
York City, has been packed' with fans
recently to hear the San Carlo club
pennant winners, sure, this season.
Brain Lags Behind Legs
As Athlete Scoots Home
Ned Egan, famous winner of pen
nants in the Central association, is
contributing an interesting series of
articles, to a newspaper syndicate
dealing with base ball in the bush
leagues. One of his opening stories
has Dan O'Leary, ' who managed
Mason Citv last season, as the hero
and' one of Dan's raw rookies as the

'OLeary's team was a run behind in
the ninth, and taking the last turn at
bat. He had airunner on first when
his best hitter came to bat. The bat

The fellow on first had a good Aart
and made third without even draw
iaig a throwto catch him. O'Leary
was coaching at third and signaled
for him to pull up at that bag. But
the runner had his head down, tore
past third and made lor the plate like
an express train. He pullet a tre
mendous slide, but was caught easily,
the ball being there at least 20 feet
ahead of him. Naturally that made
the third out and settled the game.
O'Leary was frothing w;th rage at
this foolish display of bone base run
ning that even a Ty Cobb couldn't
have got away with. He w e'd over
to his young player, who was brush
ing the dirt off his clothes, and,
steadying his voice as much as his
feelings would permit, said quietly:
"Youflg man, let me call. your at
tention to something that perhaps
you didn't notice. When you made
that slide into the plate your brain
hadn't reached third base yet."

with keys. ,
It didn't get them anything to ring
the bell, for. nobody would answer.
They simply had to stay out and
make the best of it. This didn't make
a hit with Schiff. He liked to roam
around at night. '' r ' ;
- Before long he cooked up a scheme.
When he arrived at the hotel about
12 one night he had a collection of
pebbles in his pocket. Knowing
Larney roomed oa the second, floor,
near a balcony, he tossed up a peb
ble and hit the window. At the
fourth pebble Larney looked out,
came down and let him in.
This werit so fine Schiff tried it
several nights, with enormous suc
cess. Finally Lichtenstein grew tired
of being roused, so he let Sthiff toss
pebble after pebble. Larney never
showed himself. Schiff tried the
stunt nearly half an hour, and finally
Mrs. Clifford heard.
, She bustled downstairs, and what
a lecture Schiff received 1
"didn't you .hear anything?" he
asked Larney later. '
"Not a thing," replied Lichensteip.
