Boston Rooters See None But tho Red Sox
Several Boston scribes and a few of the players who did not accompany tho
twun on an exhibition game trip attended tho games at tho I'hllly park yesterday,
and white a few of them wcro there early enough to see tho Phillies going at
tir Wt, the ragged work In tho second gamo left anything but a good Impros
smi on the Uostonlans.
i , Tfeey all Insist that they "would rather seo the Phillies win tho pennant than
$imy other, team In tho National Leaguo, because they bcllcvo thoro will be more
interest In tho games; but they also aro certain that tho Red Sox oro by far too
4 re for the Phillies. They admit that with Alexander on tho mound tho
PfcttMe might look like a different team and play better ball, but thoso who wcro
WHHrts to talk declared that there Is not enough speed In tho I'hllly team and
wat they play an open game, meaning that n heady catcher can break up many
4 the Phils' pest plays before, they are under way.
Phils Not on Good Behavior for Visitors
Perhaps they may be right, but tho general Impression Is that thcro arc
better catchers In tho National League than In tho American, and tho Phillies
have not been outguessed much this season. Thcro aro times when any team
WO! took bad, when a well-meant play falls, as tho Phillies did yesterday, and
Jt because, one or two of the Bostonlans sat In tho stand and declared that thoy
Sfcght the sign for tho "squeeze" Is no suro sign that tho play could have been

there Is also little doubt but what tho ncrlcs would bn thn tinniest tho Phillies

Boston Overrated as to Slugging Power
Boston's reputed team of sluggers appears to bo badly overestimated. Aside
i frem Speaker, Hooper, Iloblltzcl and Gardner, thero is not a member of tho Red
Sex team hitting as hard as they did earlier In tho year. Barry, Lewis, Scott,

Boston Braves the Real Worry of Phillies '
Tho Phillies still lead tho National League by three and a half games, but It
le the Braves who aro now runncrs-up to Moran's men. Boston won two more
"dames from tho Reds, and with the Phillies splitting even with tho Cardinals, tho
wefjas champions picked ud another
Ketidgs Jthlnclandcrs. In all threo games tho Boston pitchers, Rudolph, Nehf
d .Hushes, showed wonderful form, and their feat of shutting a team out for
entire series Is unusual.

tof speed, as the 'Braves-are due to start hitting soon. In tho Cincinnati series

The Female Napoleon Wins a Great Victory Bertie

Th World's Most Komous Writer or l)acball rictlon
Itprhr Tin.lnr Tiwrip. fhn latent nd-
rtltlon to the Ilrnrdlctn, Is unmarrlcil.
Tho nickname Ucnedlcts nun applied to

Rave way to bridge. "Ilertlo" naa tho
natural sobriquet for Lowrlo from the

way through opposition batsmen, he won
the appellation, "Ilertlo tho Hear." Ho
Instantly Rained faor with the players"

Toward the end of the second season Mrs.
Henshaw Is convinced. In common with tho
other women, that It Is a shame for Ilertlo
to be alone In the world, Ko sho plans to
hae her youna- sister, Vlrslnla. come down
and visit them during tho last homo stay

Bertie the Benr looked like a very nice
boy. Indeed, when ho walked Into tho
little parlor to be presented to tho man
ager's pretty Mstcr-ln-law. As a gen
eral thing, n competent tailor can con
struct a dress suit so that It looks as
If It hod been mado for the man who
wears It Not always, however. Then,
again, there are a few men wlio look as
If they had been mado for the suit
head waiters, for Instance, and leading
men In small stock companies. Bcrtlo
tho Bear belonged to the latter class.
Mnco looked well In his "moonlights":
but Herbert Lansing Lowrle carried the
light, graceful garments with tho swing
ing case which can never be counter
feited and seldom acquired. Tho very
manner in which ho entered the room
and bent over Miss Virginia's hand was
enough to "score the 15 ball on the
break," as Mace expressed It to him
self. And If Bertie the Bear was em
barrassed. If ho "batted his eyes a few
times," he did not show It In the least.
I do not pretend to delvo Into the
hearts of young people; mne-tcnths ot
the lovo storieb which aro written aro
outlandish twaddle. It Is sufficient for
the purpose of this narrative to state
that thero Is such a thing as love at ilrst
sight It crops up from time to time,
and Is useful to poets, short-story writers
There was somo conversation In tho
parlor, but baseball was not mentioned.
Mr. Lowrle novcr referred to tho sub
ject of tho national pastime; Mace had
his orders. There may have been somo
talk about books. .Ilertlo tho Hear talked
literature like a Saturday morning re
view. Ho did not always agree with Miss
Virginia's opinions; but he was always,
able to explain why. The theatre next
came Into the lino of fire. Bertie had
seen all the season's successes, and he
knew why they had been successful.
Mrs. Mace beamed; the manager of the
Benedicts grinned. Ills hand had been
In the deck for 20 minutes.
They played a little bridge.. Virginia
thought she knew tho game until sho
watched Bertie play It. Was there any
thing which this remarkaLlo young man
did not know?
Late In tho evening Maco suggested
that they might have a llttlo music. Vir
ginia went to the piano and played a
nocturno In a way which caused the men
to exchange glances.
"I guess sho don't know a thing about
music I" whispered Maco proudly. "Too
badl If she could only uso her hands on.
that thing, she'd be quite a playerl"
"Awful poor!" said Hertte the Bear.
Both men had been expressing appre
ciation In the highest terms.
But when the nocturno was finished.
Bertie told Virginia that her touch was
dainty yet Arm, her phrasing delightful,
and her use of the pedals most artistic
Under whom had she studied?
"Bless met" said that young lady, The
man talks like a musician! Do you
"A little," said Bertie the Bear, "I used
to play at home."
Then, without waiting to be coaxed, he
went to the piano, ran bis fingers over
the keys, and began Im irovlslng. Mrs.
Mace had often heard him i,'y ragtime;
and she was Just the least bit disappoint
jd that he should-rand Just then Bertlo
the Bear drifted lightly and gracefully
Into the Paderewskl "Minuet." The dell,
cate little air fairly rippled as It floweit
smoothly tinder his big hands, and thu
women exchanged glances. Maca shook
his head and looked at the celling, He
hadn t -even an ante In tho game, and ha

about on the stool, protesting that ho had

"How do you keep It up?" asked Mrs.
Mncc, when he whirled nbout, grinning.
"Doesn't It tnlto practlco?"
"Well." said Bertie the Bear, "there's
a pretty good piano down at the hotel
whero I live and they let me maul It a
llttlo when I want to make a noise."
Then, as If he had Just remembered
something, ho swung about to tho keys,
struck a few ringing chords nnd began
to sing. It was an old German folk
song nnd one which Virginia had never
heard. Tho mellow barltono melted Into
the accompaniment until the two were
one: and nt tho end they paid him the
compliment of absolute silence for sev
"What was that?" asked Mace.
"Something my sister used to play
when I wns a kid," he answered, "I
liked It, nnd that's how I happened to
remember It. Little German lovo song.
Awful foolish words."
Half an hour later the door closed be
hind Ilertlo's broad back and Miss Vir
ginia burst Into exclamations.
"What a wonderful young man! And
Virginia had teen him pitch two games,
and win them both by shut-out scores.
what a lot of things he knows! Who Is
ho? What does ho do, Madgo?"
Madgo looked at her husband, who was
"Bertie?" said Mace,, with a fair Iml

the greatest baseball players In the coun

But why does-ho play baseball? Why.

Tho Hcnshaws wcro packing for their
Inst trip on the road, and tho pennant
was "cinched." Virginia wns to tracl
ns far as Cleveland In the private car
with tho players. At Clevclnnd sho was
to tako another train for home.
For two weeks Bcrtlo tho Bear had been
a tame cat nbout the Henshaw residence.
Ho had been thero morning, noon nnd
night, Virginia's slightly elongated
shadow. He had taken tho girl to thea
tres, to art exhibits, to symphony con
certs, and to the baseball park, and sho
had seen him pitch two games, and win
them both by shut-out scores. Madgo
went nbout the house, hugging herself
behind doors nnd waltzing alono In the
hails. Maco did not qulto know what to
mako of tho case; but, when ho watched
Bertlo unllmbcr In tho box, ho found no
"Tho great big kid!" thought Maco to
himself. "He's pitching ball-to her!

Bertie pitched to her Just as he talked
to her, played to her and sang to her:
and every man on the team knew it, but
not one of them would have opened his
mouth for tho world. Ills wife would
have flayed that miscreant alive.
And ns for the manager of tho Bene
dicts, If any young woman could inspire
two shut-out scores. Mace would havo
been willing to Import half a dozen af
finities for tho married men on the pitch

Miss Virginia, though still distressingly
highbrow, accustomed herself to attend
ing places of amusement with a young
man who seemed to attract more atten
tion than tho performers themselves.
"I hope It doesn't annoy you." odoIo-
glzed Bertie. "Awful rubbernecks in this
Now, on the Inst day at home, and tli9
last day of an all-too-brlof visit, Bertie
was to tako her to a symphony concert
then to dinner downtown; nnd ho was
to escort her to tho station, where they
would rejoin the Henshaws. He had
pitched the day before, therefore he was
not required to put In nn appearance at

steps. Sho was full of the happiness
which comes to a good little woman when
she feels that she has brought happiness

knows that he had tho placing of every

Madgo had staged her first romantic
drama; she loved the leading people dear
ly, and sho was beglning to hear the cur
tain muslo for tho last act Mendelssohn
Virginia had told her sister nothing.
Bertie had been as silent as an oyster:
but eyes, as well as actions, speak louder
than words; nnd eyes have a trick of
telling the truth.
That evening Henshaw nnd his wife
waited at the gate until most of their
traveling companions were on the train
"Madge." said Maco. "are you dead

EDDIE O'KEEFE WINS
BOUT FROM TAYLOR
Local Boy Too Much for New
Yorker in Ring at
Douglas A. C.
Jimmy Tnylor, of New York, who ret
ccntly managed to weather through 13
rounds with Bantamweight Champion
Kid Williams, again got out of his sphere
Inst night nnd received almost ns bad a
beating at the hands of Eddlo O'Kccfe In
six sessions at the Douglas Athletic Club
as ho did when he swapped punches with
Sam Harris' champion. r
Tho crowd waited expectantly for tho
New Yorker to open up tho throttle, but
Taylor evinced no desire to mix things,
spending tho most of his time ducking,
backing and holding. During tho six
rounds Taylor scarcely laid a glove on
O'Keelie, but although ho did not do any
of thu leading, he was not clover enough
to escapo unscathed.
O'Kecfe's left found his face often and
repeatedly, Taylor's badly swollen eyes
bearing visible impressions of where the
blows had landed.
Taylor concentrated bo much thought
on getting out of the way of O'Keefo's
leads that he would Invariably Jump back
with his guard down, and tho local boxer
would rush, rcpentedly landing a well
directed shower of right and left swings
to the New Yorker's body.
Tho semlwlnd-up between Joo Tuber
and Joe Bradley was tho best bout of
the evening, tho former scoring a de
cisive victory. One of tho happenings
which now nnd then glvo rise to consid
erable discussion at tho ringside occurred
in tho final round of this contest Tuber
had floored his opponent for tho second
time during the round, when tho bell rang
Just as the referee had tolled off nine.
