VEM HEAVY HITTING.
Locals Touched Up Slgeby of Buffalo to
a Lively Manner.
There was blood on the fase of the
sun yesterday which mayor may not be
the reason the locals made such a show
of Buffalo at the ball park.
Whether or not the sun bad anything
to do with it, from the very nature of
things, purely conjeotural, we are in
ellned to give the credit to Pitcher De
laney, who did superb work. Only four
hits were secured by the Bisons, three
of which were singles and one a double.
These hits were all several innings
Buffalo scored its firit runs in the
third inning on errors. Conley made
a single and Boyd strnck out Sigeby
hit an easy one to Delaney, which the
latter threw to third with the intention
of cutting off Conley. The throw was
a bad one and Conley ssored, while
Sice by slipped around to sacond,
O'Brien was retired from Cahill to
Lehane and on Phelan's error Sigoby
scored and Collins reached first. The
Hide was retired by Clymer flying out to
The visitors did not get n man across
the home square again until the ninth,
(Jrqnart, the first batsman, went out
from Delaney to Lehane and Lewer
was given a base on balls, Conley
reaohed first on Lehane's excusable er
ror and on Boyd's two-bagger both
Lewer and Conley scored. The next
two batsmen were retired on short in
Much bstter work was done with the
stick by the loeals who aroused great
enthusiasm among the rooters. They
were more in evidence than at any
game since the club went Into the
The scoring began In the first in
ning. Cahill sent the ball spinning for
two bases and scored on O'Brien's bad
throw of a ball from Hoover's bat, the
latter reaching third. Johnson struck
out, Patohen filed out to Clymer and on
Hess' single Hoover scored. Phelan
was put out on a fly to Holler.
During the next five innings Scran
ton had only sixteen men at bat and
was unable to score.
In the soventh the spell of Mr. Sige
by's witchery was broken, and his
heretofore deceptive curves were found
with esse. Hess began operations with
a double and Phelan went to first on
Lewee's errors, Lehane singled into
right field, allowing Hess to score and
Phelan to reach third. Smith flied out
to O'Brien, and on Delaney's single
Phelan soampered home. Lehane and
Delaney were enabled to soore by Ca
bin's single. Hoover and Johnson were
retired on flies.
The loeals made two hits but no runs
in the eighth, but in the ainth again
did some terrifio batting.
This time Smith led off with a single,
Delaney following suit. Cahill reached
first on Urquart's error and on Hoover's
force hit Smith was thrown out at the
plate, At this point Johnson came to
the rescue with a three-bass hit, De
laney, Cahill and Hoover scoring.
Patohen sacrificed to centre field, al
lowing Johnson to score, Heas singled
and soored on Phelan's double. The
sl Je retired with Lebane. Detail score:

NEARLY 3,000 MILES AT A CLIP,
Bleeping; Car Porters Who nave the Long,
est Buns la the World.
The only employees of the Canadian Pa
cific who are with the express trains all the
time between Montreal and Vancouver are
the sleeping car porters. They travel
nearly 8,000 miles without a break, and nre
on the road for nearly six days. It Is a
pretty hard life, hut at both ends of the
route the porters have an opportunity to
rest, though even then t hey hardly get suf
ficient recuperation. For two or three
nights the porter is not likely to get over
three or four hours' Bleep a night, and he
is lucky If he gets that. He is his own con
ductor, and collecting the sleeping car
tickets and accounting for them adds con
siderably to his work.
Leaving Montreal at 8:40 p. m., he is
certain to have a busy time at Ottawa
shortly after midnight, and then he has
his boots to black, and he Is lucky if he
gets a wluk of sleep before 2 or 3 a. m. Ha
takes a pillow and lies down In the smok
ing room when no passengers are there,
and catches cat naps If he can. He is likely
ut any moment to be aroused by a bell,
summoning him to one of tho berths, and
the bell is sure to bo kept btisyufter day
break. After leaving Winnipeg he has a com
paratively caBy time ucross the plains,
though ho Is compelled to be up after
midnight both at Hegina and at Calgary.
At all important stations he has to go to
tho telegraph office with a statement of
the accommodations unoccupied in his
car, so that the station agents ahead may
dispose of berths. He has a busy time
through the mountains.
As a rule ho loses nearly his entire car
load at Winnipeg, and it fills up there at
once with passengers from the south. Ho
loses his passengers again at Banff, and
their places are supplied by tourists who
aro going on from that pleasure resort;
then many of his passengers get off at
Glazlar, and others como on, so that nearly
all the time he has much to do in tho way
of keeping his accounts, besides his duties
At Vancouver he lays over for two days,
aud as a rule he sleeps in the car, occupy
ing it all the time for the round trip.
When ho returns to Montreal he has been
away fourteen days. Then he has a longer
rest. Ho is off duty for five days, except
tlmt he has to take his turn reporting at
tho depot at night to assist the outgoing
porter iu talcing care of luggage. His five
days' rest puts him in pretty good condi
tion for another two weeks' siege.
The porters say tho trip is rather trying,
but that there Is nothing like getting used
to a thing. Tho company pays them forty
dollars a month, and they expect to make
at least us much more in fees, All of them
ure colored men from the States, and have
served on some of our best lines. They
suy they like the service. Once iu awhile
a man is switched off his regular run,
which does not please him very well. For
instance, ho may reach Winnipeg, going
east with un empty car, und he is likely to
be side tracked for further orders. He has
plenty of leisure then, but the fees, which
form so large a part of bis income, nre not
forthcoming, and ho prefers more profit
able activity, New York Sun.
A Mystery Expliilncd.
A gentleman of this city who has taken
some interest in mind rending, hypnotism,
telepathy ond the like, entered his office
the other day, aud just as he was sitting
down thought of ii friend whom he wanted
very much to see on a matter of business.
In less than a minute in walked the very
"Did you just arrive?" asked the gentle
man. "Drove up to the door about half a min
ute ago," said the visitor.
"Must send it to the Psychical Research
society," said the gentleman, explaining
what had happened.
After his visitor went away he began
thinking it over. Then he suddenly re
called something he hud overlooked. On
passing his office through another room he
hud seen a gentleman reading a book with
a peculiar binding. It reminded him of
another book iu similar binding he had
been reading ut a summer resort the week
before. This reminded him that he
thought of going buck there for another
week of recreation aud that reminded him
that his friend had been down there, too,
und was expecting to go back with him.
Then he wondered how many similar mys
teries might bo rationally explained if the
connection between one's thoughts could
only bo re-established. Detroit Free Press.
The Wisest Man Contradicts Hlmsolf.
Napoleon was a fool more than his just
proportion of time, and ho hud a habit of
sticking to decisions made iu his off hours.
You may bear this in mind, that the wisest
man is he who most ofteu und freely con
tradicts himself. To never veer in judg
ment, and never go back on yourself, is
not a murk of genius. I nsked my boy the
other day wlmt the phrase "go back on
yourself" meant, and his answer gives me
just the illustration I need. He was pick
ing a row of rasplierries; his answer was:
"I have to go back every few feet and find
berries I have nii.-seil. Wheu Phil tells
mo I am not picking clean, I tell him to go
back on himself."
That is a wise man is one who reviews
himself us ofteu once a day, and then
perhaps again eau.i week. If you have a
possible controversy, und have written a
letter, be sure not to send it for twenty
four hours, giving yourself time to recon
sider it. Perhaps a good rule is to let all
letters lay by for u day, it possible. You
may have written ono iu your fool hour.
You will bo surprised ut least thut you
could have said some things, or proposed
others. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Where Scallops Aro Found.
Sixty years ago the presence of giant
scallops was known in the vicinity of Cys
tine, Me., but It is only within tba last fif
teen years that they have found a market.
Everybody ought to learn that it is the
"heart" (which is not the heart) of the
scallop which is eaten. This so called
"heart" is the strong abductor muscle of
the mollusk. All the rest, or the mantle,
is thrown away.
In all muscular tissue there is a sweet
tasting substance, aud probably iu the
scallop this Is present In large quantity.
The usual method of taking the scallop is
by dredging. It is believed that there are
undiscovered beds of these giant scallops
yet to be found off, the coast of Maine.
There used to be entertained the idea
that since scallops were only found near
the old French settlements, they were due
to accidental planting by the first colo
nists, but such Is not the case. The Pecten
naturally belongs to the whole North
American coast. New York Times.
An ankle sprain is a stretching or tear
ing of the ligaments of the joint, caused by
a sudden twist, the weight of the body
being unexpectedly applied to the liga
ments, as if by, a lever. In most cases the
foot Is turned inward, and hence it is the
external ligaments that suffer.
