team, Mnrquarfl's first one, got

Myers showed Itubo a fake
telegram from McGraw, asking
Myers to report to tho Giants at
$000 a month. Myers borrowed
CO cents of Rube to pay for tbo
message. He borrowed another
half dollar to wire McGraw that
ho could bring Marquard with
Later Marquard paid 50 cents
for a telegram supposed to have
been sent by McGraw, saying he
would giro Marquard $400 a
month. Rube gave Myers 50

Jump the Canton club that night
Rube was nervous at tho nark.
Myers told him 'to act natural,
pack his clothes after the game,
check his trunk at tho depot and
wait at a certain poolroom.
Bade Myers, Canton manager,
found Marquard at the pool room.
"How much did John Henry
work you for?" Bade asked.
"Two dollars," sold Rube. $
"Why, what's the matter?" X
"Oh, nothing," said Bade, "ex- '

ENGLISH OPPOSE BIG FIGHT.
Think Johnson-Wells. Bout a Slaughter
and May Call It Off.
Opposltio'n to tho proposed "fight"
between Jack Johnson and Encland's
alleged champion, Bombardier .Wells,
Is Increasing to such a degree that the
English sporting critics say that Wells
hasn't had sufficient ring experience io
tackle the grinning negro, who. stands
to draw down n small fortune for his
end of this affair.
In pointing out reasons why Wells
cannot hope to make a respectable
showing if Johnson tries, attention Is
called to tho interesting fact that Ed
die McGoorty of Oshkosh, Wis.,
middleweight, outpointed Tetty Officer
Curran in a twenty round bout in
Dublin. Then Curran knocked out the
much abused Gunner Molr In two
rounds, and, sad to relate, Molr put
Wells to sleep in three rounds. On
that sort of pugilistic dopo ifs no
wonder that Englishmen do not relish
the Johnson-Wells match, so called.

Great Fight In Both Leagues
Tills Season Awakens Interest.
MACK AND M'GRAW MAY CLASH
In 1005 New York Giants' Leader
Scored Easily Over the American
League Champions, but It Will Be
By TOMMY CLARK.
One baseball prediction can be safely
watered at this time, and that is'tk.
world's series of 1011 will surpass in
Interest any ever played previously.
The terrific fights m both big league
baseball organizations for the cham
pionship have keyed tho "fans" up to
a sixty horsepower pitch of excite
ment, and tho series of games for the
world's title Is bound to reap tho ben
efits. With tho New V'ork Giants having a
plendid chance to win the National
league pennant and tho Athletics hav
ing tho American league bunting almost
won, tho world's scries of 1011 may be
a repetition of the contests of 1005,
when the New Yorkers and Athletics
of Philadelphia had.it out. On that
occasion tho Giants won four of tho
Qvo games from the Mack men.
There are many who bellevo tho Ath
letics would defeat the Giants if they
again meet this fall.' It seems that
John McGraw is in command of a
team inferior to tho ooo he o'wned six
years ago. On tho other hand, the
Athletics are generally believed to bo
etronaer than the team that represent
ed the American league in the world's
series of 1905.
But few of die men who engaged in
the 1003 series would be soon In action
this year. None of the Giants, save
tho pitchers and Arthur Devlin, who is'
no longer a regular of McGraw's team,
are now members of the Now York
team. Of the old Athletics, Briscoe,
Lord, Danny Murphy, Topsy Hartsel,
Harry Davis and some of tho pitchers
remain. Davis aad Hartsel oro fno
Another Glante-Athlctlc series would
bring together those famous veterans,
Christopher , Mnthewson nnd Chief
Charles Bender. They had it out in
tho former series, Matty winning, 2-0,
although Bender had tho better of the
hit argument, (W5. Incidentally Ben
der won the only game of tho series
from the Giants, defeating Joe Mc-
Glnnlty and Loon Ames, 3-0.
Today "McGraw has no man like
Boger Brcsnohnn to do his catching.
His outfield vrlU probably hit as hard
and is as fast as the old Browne-Mortes-Donlln
combination, but the in
fledd is not as air tight Matty is still
pitching winning ball, but Is hardly
mo same wizard that ho was six rears
ago. However, instead of McGlnulty
tho Giants now lmvo Marquard as tho
next best bet to Big Six.
Bender Is probably as good today as
he was when ho last faced the Giants.
Eddie Plank, although n veteran now,
still seems to have his old cunning. A
two hit game against tho Browns re
cently shows that ho is far from
through as a big leaguer. Then Mack
has John Coombs, Harry Morgan and
n flock of juveniles to fall back on.
For the lost two Bcasons the Athletics
have figured as real pennant contend
ers. They won last season and will
probably repeat this year.
While Chief Bender was Mack's main
reliance last season, the Indian re
ceived valuable aid from John Coombs,
the Maine Iron man, but the Now Eng
ender has not bad such a successful
campaign this season. However, it is
probahlo that ho is being nursed along
by the wise Cornelius and will do hi"
real work when the world's- series
battling Is on.
But when Coombs fell down Eddlo
Plank came to life again. Ho did his
share of tho work last season, but tho
real -work was left to Bender nnd
Coombs. This season, , though, Plank
is proving a great aid to tho Philadcl
phlans. Jackson a Quick Thinker.
Joe Jackson Is not only n hard hitter
and fast man, but a quick thinker on
tho ball field.

hadn't been starting his slide
soon enough and didn't get as
far to one side of tho bag as ho
Joo is Just about Ty's equal at
making the fall away slide, and
no other player in the American

WHY CATCHERS SLOW UP.
Constant Stooping Harden Muscles of
Legs and Interferes With Running.
Why do catchers slow up after sev
eral seasons' service in tho big
leaguo? asks a fan. A logical reason
is given. It follows: "Few catchers
are fast an their feet after they have
been in tho game a few years, and
this failing is attributed to the fact
that the man lehlnd tho bat does a
lot of sooplng and thus hardens the
muscles, of his legs in such a wny as
to Interfere with his running. Now
nnd then a young catcher breaks in
who can step around tho bags at a
good clip, but as a rule he loses his
speed after a short time and becomes
slow. Today there aro few-catchers
who havo speed on tho bases. Aln
smlth is perhaps the best runnsr of
nny of tho catchers in tho major
leagues, and Eddie has not been in
tho game long enough to slow up."
WILDING NOT TO PLAY.
