The local association is already consider
ably "in a hole" this neaseu financially

Where are the heavy hitters of tho Al
lentown team? They havn't been doing
anything atvall lately. The men lack gin
ger aud with a fow exceptions amble about
like so many old street car horses. It must
be rather gulliiur to the ex-National
leaguers to sou youngsters in their first
season in tho professional ranks tako
games from them with appareuc oase.
The reason is that the latter do not de
pend upon their reputation to win games
they go in wjth snap and vigor and play
to win. .'lffenfotcn Chronicle.

In an article on yachting tho London
Field snys; "The contention that tho
Vigilant waa not a fair Teasel to match
against tho Valkyrie, on account of her
flimsy oonatrnction, will be emphasized by
the fact that she Is being strengthened Ifor
ber Atlantic passage. We believe that
the committee of the Royal Victoria Yacht
club meditated lasr. auiuiuu a clause in
suring that the defending yacht for the
Victoria gold cup should bo bui't capable
of tilling the Atlantic on ber own bottom.
The clatiso was not adopted, owing to the
difficulty of determining tho fitness of
build for the purpose. With reference to
the difficulty of the Vigilnnt getting days
for et lnatooMi a British yachtmao ad
vises that she enter all possible open
events, as the Navahoe did. If she cannot
beat the particular craft in such matches,
how on earth can she do so iu dual con
tests, which do little or no good to tho
general cause of yachting."
