proud of the record he has made. With a hitting team behind him
he will win most of hisgamep.
In all probability Buck Ewing will captain and manage the Cin
cinnati team next year.
McClosky of Louisville is still signing infants for. his national
team. When he gets them all together he should bring them to
Lincoln and run up against Buck Ebright's team. It is a house and
lot against a tin whistle that Buck could win two out of three.
All of western association players are holding out for nearly double
the salary they received last year.
Buck Ebright has made a contract with the Lincoln club and is
now busy hustling for pennant winners.
We have one man signed Buck Ebright.
Kid Speer, Jimmy Sullivan, Freddie Barnes and Tommy McCarthy
are still in the city and all would like to sign for next year though
as yet nonp of them have.
Monk Cline was injured in a Louisville tire. Monk is pipeman
with company 11 of the Louisville fire department. When Mc
Closky finds out that he is in Louisville ho will sign him.
There has been over 1000 raised for the widow of Mike Kelly.
Beckloy has signed with Pittsburg for '1X3.
Park Swartzell has dropped out of base ball altogether.
Sioux City papers say their club will not have as
much trouble winning tho pennant in the western asso
ciation as it did in tho western league.
Western association averages are at last givon to the
public and it showB that Katz of Rock Island leads in
batting; Strauss of Jacksonville has tho most home runs
thirty-three; Lohbeck leads in fielding averages.
Tho official averages must be off somewhere as Mc
Carthy is only credited with thirty-five stolen bases,
while Krohmeyer of Quincy has the eamo number. To
anyone who has watched both players there is no doubt
but McCarthy stolo two bases to his one, Ebright is
credited with twenty-seven, Speer with thirty-one.
There were very few games played in which McCarthy
did not steal at least one base and many times he suc
ceeded in getting three in ono day. Ho played in 114
games and the averages would have you believe that he
did not steal in only one games out of three. Ebright
had 7G3 chances with sixty-four errors, Sullivan had
1335 chances with forty-five errors. Beam of Peoria

There will be some good amateur clubs in tho city next year and

Cincinnati has twenty-seven men under contract.
At a meeting of the western association it was resolved that no
two clubs should have tho same colored uniform. Omaha's color is
grey and bluo which is the prettiest of any, and all thn other clubs
will have to change in some way. The Coukiek would like to see
Lincoln adopt the same uniform as was worn in 18S7, viz, white
caps, shirts, belts and stockings with blue pants. Some of the '87
crowd were sporty enough to wear silk stockings. It is doubtful if
any of tho players this year will get salary enough to permit of such
Clara My fiance bat me last night that ho could tell a bigger fib
than I could. I took the bet and he said that ho had never loved
any one but me.
Laura A pretty good fib, wasn't it? Could you beat it?
Clara Easily and utterly. I told him I had never loved any one
"Your three daughters are married; did they marry happily?"
"Two are married happily and one is divorced happily."
The strong shall strive may they be victors crowned;
The wise shall seek may they at length find truth;
Tho young still hope may purest love bo found
To make their age more glorious than their youth.
For me: my brain is weak, my heart is cold,
My hope and faith long dead; my life but bold
In jest and laugh to parry hateful truth
