MORE BATTINQ STATISTICS.
Some of the Great Feats Performed
by the Muggers.
The base ball crank has been at work,
and finds the following about heavy
batting In a game:
The feat of Bottenus, of the Buf
falo, who In 1895 made four home runs
and a two-bagger, five times at bat,
stands unchallenged by batsmen of
modern professional base ball. His
nearest competitor Is Lowe, of the Bos
tons, who. In one of the games of May
30, 1894, made four home runs and a
Ingle. ' This total was once equalled by
Larry Twltchell. Lowe also made two
home runs In one inning. - In 1882 Char
ley Smith- made eight successive hits.
Frank Fennelly, once of Cincinnati, has
a record of six successive hits with li
total of 18. 'Guy Hecker when -with
Louisville, made three home runs,' a
triple and sa. 'double. Jerry Denny Is
credited with six successive hits, while
Dave Orr antt Larkln, beat, all records
for successive and successful batting by
10 hit, each-in 'one game. r George
Rooks, of Oshkosh. once 'made three
home runs . In. a game against Eau
' Clalra, with which Bobby Lows .was
playing. Crooks, of Washington, In
ISM, made five safe hits, four of which
were home runs. Fitzgerald, of Wilkes
Barre, in 1889. made two home runs In
one inning. Charley Jones, while play
ing with Buffalo, in 1880, made two
homers In one Inning. George Gore, of
Chicago, in a game against Boston, Is
credited with nine successive hits, five
of which were doubles, and Elmer
Smith once secured three home runs
in a game. Roger Connor last season,
out of six times at .bat, made three
singles, two doubles and a triple.
BASE BALL IN ENGLAND.
A Good Story of the British Way of
Jimmy Ryan, of Chicago, explains
thus the way base ball is played in
England as exempli lied In a game by
two of the best English teams: .
"So far as fielding and batting went
they weren't half bad. The pitcher
stood well up In the box at the start,
let go a good, swift ball, and the bat
ter soaked it. The shorstop made a
rattling good line catch, and I said:
'Why, these fellows are till right. They
have learned the game mighty well.'
"The next man up hit the ball clear
over the centerfielder's head. 'Well cut,
Harry! Well cut! Run It out! Run It
out!" they all howled, and the fellow
did run it out. He made the circuit in
good time and then, to my Intense as
tonishment, kept right on and reached
tirst before the fielders got the ball. He
was off on the next ball thrown and
made a good steal ef second. Then the
fellow at bat hit a good three-bagger
to left and the fellow who had just
navigated around for. six bases went
home, started for first, reached it and
stayed there. . ,'..
"I hndn't a word .to say. They kept
on hitting the ball and the fellow who
had maUe the' first hit kept on running.
Finally when.' three men had been put
out I figured up' that this gentleman
had made seven.runs and .the rest of the
team three. .So. they counted it and I
then realised that thoy were -playing
on the cricket' pian keep on running
till you get- put out.
"But I wasn't fully prepared for their
game yet. In tKe-aecond inning one" of
them hit a long foul tri the rear. What
does he do but start off and circle the
bases to the. same old howl of 'Run It
out! Run It out!, while the catcher
chased the ball. This mude the captain
of the side then In the Held figure that
there must be something wrong with
his arrangement of players. So he
opened the rules, found that paragraph
which says the captain muy place his
nun anywhere he sees fit and sent the
center fielder back of the catcher. The
move proved a success, for these Eng
lishmen, accustomed to 'cutting' the
ball for fouls, sent him eleven flies, all
of which he caught very prettily.
"They played seven innings, the gnme
Anally winding up when a long hit was
made, the1 ball was lost and the mun
who .hit It made twenty-four runs be

out, and play the other two innings the
next day and adjourned, with the score

HERE'S A SAMPLE BRICK.
Of How the Now York People Dote on
There seems to' be no doubt now that
the New Tork buse ball team will win
the pennant for Manager Freedman has
signed two more layers, who were the
greatest the North Pole league ever
They are so renowned that I have
forgotten their names. One Is a pitch
er, and it Is said' that' he has won 999
of the last 1,000 games he pitched.
He had previously lost 1,000 straight
games in the South African league,
but that was due to his wlldness.
When he burst upon the North Pole
league he shone with all the brilliancy
of a meteor. Such splendid commund
of the ball did he achieve that it is
averred he can cut the plate Into a
million pieces without turning a hair.
No one in the National league ever
heard of this great pitcher except
Freedmnn, who Is to be congratulated
for securing such a famous player for
The other player, I believe, can play
both the outfield and the infield at the

J'Freedy" has knocked all his contem
poraries higher than the moon.
The signing of these two "phenoms"
only goes to prove once more that
"Freedy" Is determined to give New
York a pennant team, no matter what
Some people here Imagined that the
strongest players in the world belonged
to the National league, but It remained
for Andy Freedman to dispel that Illu
sion. I don't know how much he paid for
the release of these two "phenoms," for
with his characteristic modesty, he re
mains silent, the same as he did when
he exchanged "no good" Doyle for Ulea
son and $2,500 to boot.
I believe that I am breaking no confi
dences when I say it is rumored he paid
something' like $50,000 to consummate
this deal, which, if true, is the most
stupendous base ball transaction on
Now, let the "knockers" be silent. The
New Yorks are going right up the lad
der to first place. Keep your eye on
them, but not long enough to become
blind." New York Recorder.
Springfield has released the amateur
Lancaster has signed Catcher Westlake,
late of the Reading club.

Stafford, of the New Yorks, had a bone

"If Chicago ever happen to land first
or second Your Uncle and his Colts will
never play for the Temple cup," says Buck
Ewing. "The reason Is as childish as it
Is funny. Jim Hart attended ft league
meeting during Al Buekenberger'a relirn
as manager of the 1'itUburg club. Al
was sent to the meeting to represwnt the
Interests of the Pirates. For some reason
or other Jim Hart took a dislike to Buck,
enberger, and asked Mr .Kerr, one of the
Pittsburg club owners, what that fellow
Buckenberger was doing at the meeting.
'Buekenherger,' responded Kerr, 'hus as
rath right at that meeting as you. He Is
the hired man of tho I'ltteburg club, and
you are no more than the hired mun of Al
Spalding club.' Hart never recovered
from chat shot. Mr. Temple, who donated
the Temple Cup, is a Pittsburg man, and
a great friend of Mr. Kerr's, and that's
why Jim Hart Is sore on the famous Tem
Ho pitchers after they have been re
leased by a club with which Mley have
been playing for sevral yeavs and on
which ihey Imagine they have a cinch
play better ball with another club with
which they sign? is a question which has
been agitating the minds of base baill fans
for years past and they have had some
apt Illustrations of the "secoml-leasc-of
life" act on many occasions. Last year
"Kid" Gannon twirled for Manager
Kuntzsc.h and he was a frost according to
the Syracuse magnate, who could hardly
wait until the close of the season, to re
lease him. He was Immediately signed
by President Franklin, of the Buffalo
team with the result that he- is easily the
star of the home -team this year, and Is
giving his opponents but tlvo or six hits
in any game. Ad tlumbert was recently
released by Brooklyn for not being up to
the Natlontil league murk. He was taken
on trial by Philadelphia, which at pres.
ent would apparently take a G-year-old kid
If some one told the manager he could
pitch. But yesterday Qumbert showed
what he was capable of doing by giving
tho Plttsburgs but nine scattered hits,
which, if he had decent support, would
have been but live nnd the Pirates would
have been shut out. He also batted In
two runs for the Quakers. A more re
cent Instance of tho in-and-out playing of
pitchers Is that of Helnrtch Gruber. He
otlldnted In the box for several games for
Springfield this season and was so rank
that he was played most of the time on
first base. . He soon was released and
again .Manager Kowu took a chance with
the result that has won the only two
games he has pitched for 'the Bisons nnd
that, too, by giving his opponents but very
few hits, joe Herndon was released by
President Franklin this week. If he
Is signed by another club It is dollars to
cents that he will ugnin make a record for
that club. Buffalo Enquirer.

What the London Field Says About the
THEY WERE WILLING TO LEARN
M ay to Retain the Feet on the Pednls
of a Bike When Going Down Hill.
Connelf, the Itunucr, Is Going to
Knglnud--Rccord for High Jump
Broken by Tycho.
In a very complimentary and friendly
article on Yale's crew the London Field
of July 11 says, among other things:
"There has been one peculiar character
istic of the Yule oarsmen which has
struck all whoive observed them, or'
huve converseu with them; this fea
ture hus been their modesty, tempered
with laudable ambition. Instead of ar
riving with the notion that thev were
going to teach the old World how to
row, they seem to huve started with
the hypothesis that they had come to
see what rowing was on this side of
the Atlantic, and that they had made
up their minds to make this venture a
snrt of 'preliminary examination,' from
which they Intended to take and com
pnre notes, and, after doing their best
for the occasion, to digest their experi
ences for some future, and doubtless
more effective attempt. We huve sel
dom seen a club more observant of Dis
crepancies In styles, as compared with
their own, or more free from blindness
as to their own peculiarities."
Many cyclists, especially women, find
It dilllcult to retain the pedals when
going down hill at a rapid rate of speed.
A little powdered resin spread on the
sole of the shoe will be of great assist
ance. A pair of toe clips will also as
sist both In descending and in ascend
ing a hill. Toe clip'? are made now
which are suitable for rubber pedals.
It Is an easy matter for u rider to learn
to use them, the most trouble being ex
perienced In catching the clip after
mounting. This is done by first rest
ing the foot on the side of the pedal op
posite to that on which the clip Is at
tached. Then raise the foot from the
pedal nnd lower it again quickly. The
weight of the toe clip will cause , the
pedal to swing half way around, and
when the foot Is lowered again, it will
catch the pedal toe clip up.
. Captuln Cook, who Is now on the way
to New York, will undoubtedly give
some outline of Yale's future policy In
rowing when he arrives. Just before
his departure he Intimated that he fa
vored going abroad annually nnd subse
quent cables have seemed to Indicate
that he is still of the same mind. The
cost is very little more than a a race
on the Thames, at New London, Conn.,
and the honors to be won by a victory
well worthy of the efforts. Then, too,
with whom would Yale race on this
side of the water?.
Tommy Conneff, the runner, Is pre
paring to go to England very shortly.
He will run for a while and then study

The recrd for the high jump was bro
ken Suturday by Tycho Brahe, a bay
gelding owned by Helnemann Brothers,
of the Central Park riding aendemy.
At 1.30 p. m. the gallery wns filled with a
large audience, who had come to see if
the horse could jump over seven feet
without breaking his and his rider's
neck. The llrst jump was at five feet;
then two were jumped at six feet four
Inches. By this time the horse was
fully warmed up to his work. The bar
was raised to 6 feet 10 inches. In
making this jump the little horse fell,
with his rider under him. It looked se
rious fur a moment, but in a second
both man and horse were on their feet
again, none the worse for their spill.
After a few minutes' breathing anell
the bar was put up to 7 feet 6 Inches.
Few present thought that the horse
would try, but he did, getting his fore
feet well over, but knocking the rails
down. Encouraged by this, Donnelly
drove him at it again. This time he
cleajed it in great form, breaking the
world's record. The crowd Jumped Into
the ring and carried Donnelly out on
Dan J. Lynch, the backer of Tom

He Is not muscle-bound, as is generally

dell this spring and hereafter a small and
select string will be raced.
WHIRLS OFTHE WHEEL
The doctors ere still busy discovering
new bicycle disease. There Is the bicycle
throat, and blcyole eye, and the nose,
spine, arm, foot, lungs, liver, heart and
possib)y the cyclbrt's vermiform appendix.
As a matter of fact, however, the thing
that is worrying the doctors Is ttie general
prevalence of bicycle health.
The Colored League of American Wheel
men was organized In September, 1895,
and now has a total membership of 3.50O.
Its president and secretary hail from
Pittsburg, where they hold office In one
-f the local clubs. The organization will
have a race meet at Pittsburg on August
20. 21 ami 22. ut which about 2.0H0 colored
wheelmen from nil sections of the country
ure expected to be present.
Sanger has made the discovery, which Is
hardly a discovery, that u good many rec
ords are more due to the stop watch than
to the racer. It appears that there Is such
a thing as a slow watch, not the kind o;
watch that makes a man miss a train, but
a watch gotten up for the express purpose
of running slow, running say eighty sec
onds to the minute lnsteail of the ortthodox
sixty. The racing man who Is timed with
that kind of watch can naturally make
records look tired without half trying.
The Windy City does nothing If It does
not take care of Ms cyclists. Now the
park commissioners have decided that,
owing to the steadily increasing throng of
cyclists, a pavilion must be erected tot
their exclusive use In Lincoln park, and
that It must be finished within a month.
The pavilion It Is estimated, will cost $22,
00O, and it will be substantially construct
ed. The foundation will be of rubble stone
and the superstructure of ornamental
frame design. Two Inclosed rooms at
either end, with a broad, breezy loggia,
between, provided with seats and wheel
racks, will be Included in the equipment.
A man who guesses the action and con
dition of the cycle trade in 1897 will be a
big winner. There Is a New Yorker who
says thut he knows all about it tells just
what ull the members of the bicycle trade
ure going to do next yeur, as follows:
"In is: 17 many manufacturers who have
heretofore turned out but one grade of
machine will include a medium line, list
ing, of course, at a trifle less than high
grade. For Instance, this so-called me
dium grade line will bo constructed with
Pi-inch tubing, up to '90 date in every
way and in reality '9G wtueas left on hand
at the end of the present season. This line
will list at about $75. The '97 'high grade
will list at $85. and Its distinctive point will
be for tho most part H4-lnch tubing. Sev
eral of the makers will. In addition to the
'97 high grade and medium grade lines, also
turn out a Juvenile model next year."
SP0RTINQ ODDS AND ENDS
A young Phlladclphlun of the name of
Mulligan is regarded as a coming run
ner because he is credited with a recent
performance of 100 yards in 3-5 seconds
from the llva-yards mark.
Hugh Behan, manager of Grlffo, has an
nounced that he will invite Lavlgne to try
conclusion with tho clever Australian af
ter the Iiavlgne-McKeever six-round bout
at Madison Square Garden is over.
There Is every reason to believe that a
20 or 25-round contest will be arranged
within the next ten days between Tommy
White, of Chicago, and George Dixon, for
the featherweight championship of the
James Fleming Carroll, ex-champion
lightweight pugilist, has drafted a set of
rules to govern professional boxing con
tests. They are very similar to the Mar
quis of Queensberry rules, the chief dif
ference being that they are more concise.
Henry Peterson, the San Frunclsco oars,
man, says he intends to offer his services
to the regaWia committee of Vancouver In
order to meet Edward Hanlln In the shells
next September. He in anxious to meet
Hanlan and believes that he can make it
very Interesting for him.
Jack Kverhardt feels very much put otl
at the manner in which Kid Lavigne has
refused to pay any attention, tih his chal
lenge which he Issued to Lavigne previous
lo the tatter's visit to England. Kver
hardt claims that Lavigne promised him
that he would meet him, but ha not come
forward as yet in regard to making the
mat. and does not seem anxious to do
Now that Tommy White has won a vic
tory over Johnny Van Heest it behooves
th manager of George Dixon to get in
line and arrange a match between White
and the sable featherweight champion for
the championship. White Is Indisputably
the best featherweight nexit to Dixon In
the ring toduy, and the -ports would like
to see him meet the colored wonder.
White has posted a forfeit wit'h the Illus
trated News to arrange a match, and
hopes that Dixon will respond forthwith."
One reason advanced for jhe financial
failure of the Manhattan Beach bicycle
track Is that It was "Jonahed" from th-j
fact that ground wns broken for It on a
certain Friday which happened to fall on
the 13th of the month. That It is the
linest track in thecountry Is generally con
ceded, and the Impracticability of record
time at the beach should not keep peopl.t
away. Wheelmen in competition on the
asphult can furnish quite enough excite
ment for any crowd, even if Its records
are not broken every hour. The manage
ment alone Is responsible for the failure
of the track as an Investment.
A few days ago Dr. George E. Cook,
or the Onkdale Athletic club, raised trom
the shoulder to the full arms length above
the rhoulder a 120-pound dumb-bell nine
successive times with one hand. This

by C. O. Breed, of Boston, Mass., January
30, 1S94, who raised the name weight six
times. It also broke the world's amateur
record made by E. L. Levey, of England,
March 30, 1891, who raised it elgfot times.
