Proprietor Gives Up the Game After
Twenty-five Years With Unblem

Youngsters to Successes
The ILancaster Athletic Club, the old

its doors, so far as Manager Har

is now an inmate of a hospital in Lan

The club was established almost 25
years ago by Mr. Hensel, and he has
since been connected with its manage

prominent boxers of the world have
appeared in the Lancaster ring, from

Many good bovs owe their start to
Mr. iHensel, and the lovers of that line
of sport will miss him. Mr. Hensel en
joyed the reputation of being square
with his patrons, as well as the boxers.
He was never known to cut a bout from
a bill, even if he knew the show was to
be a financial failure, but always gave
what he advertised. He never cut a
boxer's pay and paid hotter prices than
most of the clubs in large cities.
Mr. Hensel had an extended experi

ring patror.s. He is sporting editor of
the (Lancaster '• Intelligencer" and has

NEW YORKS GO INTO HANDS
GF COL JACOB RUPPERT
Deal Is Financially Closed In Chicago
—Presence of McGraw Starts the
Mathewson Rumor All Over
Chicago, Dec. 22. —President Ban
John-ton. of the American League an
nounced officially last ni»g:Jit, that the
Now Yi>rk American League baseball
' club had been sold to 001. Jacob Rap
jH'rt. Jr., and Captain Tilidnghast L.
Huston, of Netv York City. The nego
tiations were terminated successfully
at a special mee:ing of the American
League here yesterday.
Farther than to state that the in
i terests of Frank Farrell, W. 8. D«very,
j Tom Foley and Elkus—who had in
their possession every share of the
club stock—had been taken over en
tirely by the new owners, Mr. Johnson
would not commit himself. The terms
and conditions for the present will re
; main a secret, Mr. Johnson did say
that a new manager satisfactory to the
, new owners had been selected and that
his colleagues had guaranteed to their
latest associates the tive sterling play
-ers upon whom Messrs. Ruppert and
' Huston insisted. The names of these
six Mr. Johnson refused to divulge.
Mr. Johnson promised that a full
public announcement of the transac
tion -would be forthcoming to-day.
Then he hopes to be able to effect a
transfer of the stock. It wus said,
though the announcement lacked of
ficial confirmation, that Frank Farrell
had been summoned here from New
ork as soon as the American League
rlub presidents finally agreed to give
in to the demands of the new owners.
Xot the least prominent member of
yesterday's conference was John J.
MeG-raw, manager o<f the New York
Giants. His appearance unexpectedly
in the afternobn created a mild sensa
tion. It was believed then that the
sale Of the New Yorks had reached a
most acute stage for the antipathy of

known also that" from the start Messrs.

Chicago for the purpose of trying to
sfvure Third Baseman Hans I.oher: , of
the Philadelphia Nationals, lie wo.i 1 d
have had the writers believe that on
Labert's attitude hinged a possible
trade between the Ginnts and Phillies.
But his presence .it this particular
time was interpreted in an entirely dif

Christmas Day, matinee and night,
"A Pair of Sixes."
Every afternoon and evening, high
Daily continuous /audeville and pic
"A Pair of Sixes"
Edward Peple's play, "A Pair of
.Sixes," returns to the Majestic as the
Christmas attraction Friday matinej?
and evening. This American author's
ability to write three plays so distinct,
different and of such distinguished
merit, has been the subject of much
wonderment and newspaper comment.
"A Pair of Sixes" is as thoroughly
American in topic and treatment as it
is in title. The story is most ingeni
ous in its basis and development, and a
factor greatly to its credit is that it
is good, clean, wholesome fun, the kind
of humor that men can discuss freely
not only with their own women folks,
but with the women folks of others.
"A Pair of Sixes" sounds like a
very small hand, but it will take a
mighty good combination to beat it.
This is doubtless partly accounted for'
by fact that there is an addition to
the pair, a queen of hearts in the play,
which is sufficient intimation that the
play is not only funny, but has a strong
love interest. Adv. ••• /
At the Orpheum
Santa Clans, himself, came to the
Orpheum yesterday and for the grown

Keith vaudeville, and for the "kid

■ until the day before Christmas, and
1 each time will have little present* for
' each girl and boy. When it comes to
mentioning the best attractions of the
bill, things will have to be left to the
I individual taste. "The Dream Pirates"
are a cute and clever bunch of young
sters and they offer a sketch of fun,
frolic, and song that is very entertain
Flo Bert, a fascinating miss, is fea
; tured in the act and the doings on the
| deck of an ocean liner are all supposed
to be the realization of "her dreams.
| Catchy songs are interpolated, one es
pecially good comedian is in the act and
the pretty scenic effects and fetching
I costumes make their offering quite a
: "sight" act. ''Dogville On a Busy
Day'' evoked prolonged laughter for
I the last person in the audience. This
■ dog and monkey comedy should he seen
Iby every girl and boy in Harrisburg.
i Also Josephine Joy is here again after
■ a four-year absence, and she gave ex
! cellent account of herself with a classy
repertoire of new songs. The whole
Orpheum bill is clever and entertaining.
At the Colonial
One of thp best all 'round offerings
seen at the Colonial is the one that
came to entertain tired shoppers as
well as amusement seekers at the Co
lonial for the first half of the week.
One of these is a fine comedy playlet
with Walter D. Neland and company;
Norman and Clare, also of thin bill are
the cleverest youngsters seen on a local
stage for some time; the Nikko Troupe,
famous exponents of Oriental skill, and
Von Dell, in impersonations of famous
composers and musicians, round out the
roster. Much interest is being mani
fested in the Colonial's Christmas Coun
