A BASHFUL MAN'S
How He Came to Win the
Girl of His Choice.
SHERIFF'S SALE OF VALUABLE
REAL ESTATE. By virtue of
process Issued out of the Court of
Common Pleas of Wayne county, and
State of Pennsylvania, and to me
directed and delivered, I have levied

When Connie Mack In an effort to
stop his team's slump and to check
tho Berles of disasters at Detroit pull
ed Jack Mclnnes out of the lineup
something was shown that seldom, pos
sibly never, had been done before. To
better tho general effectiveness of his
club ho benched a man who had hit
.301 In sixty-two games and who is
neither a bonohead nor a bad ball
He had not secured a wonder to re
place him, for he merely turned back
to Harry Davis, who was never the
hitter that Mclnncs has been this sea
son and whose baseball days are num
bered. Tho change Incidentally last
ed only two days, Mclnncs being
placed back at the position. Taking
.361 hitters out of tho lineup to gain
strength Is something entirely new In
the national pastime, especially when
these hitters .have been In nearly all of
the games of their clubs.
In flvo of tho ten seasons no batter
hit as well as Mclnnes has done. In
but one of the years has any man play
ing tho same position, first base, reach
ed his mark.
How Corhan Broke Into Baseball.
Roy Corhan, tho little shortstop on
the Chicago White Sox, who Is playing
like a fixture Just now, was discovered
by the iato Frank Seleo some years
ago when Seleo was In charge of the
Pueblo club of the Western league.
Selee went down to Albuquerque, N.
M., where they have a big baseball
tournament every fall, and In looking
over various players his eye fell upon
Corhan and a young third baseman
Seleo took Corhan and Casey to
Pueblo, and tho former made good
from the Jump. Seleo always contend
ed that Casey was Just as good a nat
ural player, but tho youngster never
got to going good In league company
and finally disappeared. Corhan was
his particular pride, and ho always
contendedjhat with a full opportunity
ho would make good anywhere. Cor
han Is a very fast fielder, but until re
cently was regarded as a light bitter.
He has commenced to pick up in that
line, and It looks like ho will Btlck at
the short field the balance of the season.
New Record For Running to First.
John "Rabbit" Burke, center fielder
of the Columbia South Atlantic league
team, broke tho world's record recent
ly, It is claimed, for bunt and run to
first base, three times getting to the
bag in three seconds flat, according to
two stop watches. Tlio world's record,
made by Thoney, now of Boston, at
Cincinnati in 1007, stood at 3 1-5 sec
onds. Burke's record was made at tho
field day benefit for tho Columbia and
Albany players held at Columbia.
New Ball Much Faster.
Speaking of the cork center ball,
Neal Ball says: "It comes oft tho
ground llko a billiard ball taking Eng
lish off tho rail. I don't exaggerate
when I tell you I've had tho ball como
at mo so fast that I didn't have timo
to get down to It. Don't you see tho
troubles even tho outfielders nro hav
ing with bounding balls?"
Coach Rice Signs Long Contract.
As a result of the excellent show
ing of tho Columbia crews In tho re
cent big regatta, at Poughkeepsle, Co
lumbia university has signed Coach
Jim Rico for ten years and, besides,
has raised his salary $500 a year. Tho
sum now paid Rico Is said to be tho
largest of any paid rowing coach in
Jennlnn Likes College Players.
Bughlo Jennings has suddenly taken
a great liking to college ban players.
He hod one pf bis scoots scorning the
eastern schools recently. He caught
six possibilities In his dragnet They
will be tried out for. use next season
proYldlng they are needed.
"What matters it If he does. Ho Is
too bashful and reserved to tell what
he knows. There isn't a girl in the
place who doesn't dread to be left
alone with him."
"Don't you think some of them
might overcome their aversion if he
should suddenly becomo wealthy?"
"I don't think I could stand him If
he were worth"
I wns lying In n hammock In the
back yard reading. I got up and went
Into the house, but as this scrap of
conversation occupied but a few mo
ments I could not very well avoid
hearing it. To do myself Justice, I did
not wish to hear myself discussed.
Kato Barker's remarks were intensely
painful to me, bo painful thnt I re
solved to leave the place of my birth
and go forth Into tho great world, .hop
ing to forget them.
I did not forget them, but I had tho
sensitiveness knocked out of mo very
quickly. I made money, made It out
of nothing, and to do this I was oblig
ed to master my feelings. "To those
who have shall bo given," and by the
death of an aunt I Inherited a for
tune. I owned the little tumbledown
house with tho aero of ground about
it In which I had lived with my moth
er, and since she was no longer living
I resolved to go back and dispose of
it. Tho day after my arrival I rigged
a hammock in tho back yard and lay
down In It with a cigar and a book.
Pretty soon I heard voices over tho
"Have you seen him?"
"Yes; I was peeping through the
blinds when he came."
I recognized tho first voice as that of
Marion, the second as that of Kate.
This was all I heard, for the two girls
passed out of hearing.
In tho evening I called on my neigh
bor. Kate Harker received me as if I
wcro her oldest and best friend, mak
ing no attempt to conceal the favor I
had found In her eyes since she bad
pronounced me a gawk. Marlon was
very reserved. Indeed, had I been ns
unsophisticated as when I had heard
her say "But ho knows things!" I
should have concluded that she had
turned against me. But a man can't
make money without gaining a knowl
edge of human nature. I suspected
that Marlon now held aloof from a
feeling that since I had becomo a de
sirable "catch" It was not her place to
"You young ladies must be more
careful as to your words," I said. "Be
fore I went away I overheard a scrap
of conversation with regard to me that
gave me great pain."
Both looked at me uneasily.
"You two were talking In the gar
den. One said, 'He's a gawk!' the oth
er, 'But he knows thlngsl' "
The two girls looked at each other
"I remember no such conversation,"
sold Kate. Marion was silent
"Do you, Marlon?1 I asked.
"No, but candor compels mo to say
that at that time the criticisms were
"Tho first surely was, though I am
not so certain about 'the second. But
the Justness of it all could havo no
effect on a boy of nineteen. I have for
years felt harshly toward the one who
called me a gawk and kindly to her
who said 'But ho knows things!' "
"Then you recognized their voices,"
said Kate, paling slightly. "Tell us
who called you a gawk."
"I may havo attributed the remark
to tho wrong girl, but to whomsoever
I toss this pin let her stand accused."
Taking a pearl pin from my scarf, I
tossed It to Marlon.
Tho distress on Marion's face was
painful to boo. Koto blushed, and tl
guilty look on her face was equally
distressing. She struggled with her
self to .take tho blnmo that she knew
belonged to her, but without success.
I waited to see if Marion would place
It where- It belonged, but she did not
She handed my pin back to me.
"Keep It ns a token that you are for
given," I said.
But she was resolute, and I at last
placed tho Jewel again In my scarf.
I waited a week, leaving the girls
free, tho one to assume her Just bur
den, tho other to placo ft upon her
friend. I paid Kate marked attention
and treated Marlon with Indifference.
I bad learned selfishness myself, but
admired that sense of honor which
prevented Marlon from throwing tho
blame on Kate. Meanwhile I took sat'
Is faction In Marlon's distress. The
fact of haying called me a. gawk was
nothing to her discredit I fcnw that
it wns the loss of my favor that pain
Marlon," I said one day, "have you
repented having called me a gawk?"
She gave me no reply.
Well, yoo had better dismiss the
matter from your mind. In tho first
place, I was not only a gawk, but a
ninny. In the Bcoond, It wa not you
who spoke tho word, .but Kate. In
the third, I love you and want you to
go bock with me na my vsa)
So Indignant was she at J be pain I
bad given her that she kc me wait
ing a year and then only consented on
condition that I anolocue.
