TUB CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 18, 1011. IN THE WORLD OF SPORT Sheckard, Cubs' Veteran Out fielder, Who May Be Traded. s j TROTTER TICULAR PIECE HORSEFLESH. UHLAN IS PAR- I OF Uhlan, tho world's champion trotter, Is a mighty particular piece of horseflesh when It conies to drinking water. Not so very long ago Tom Logan, who Is proud of being Uhlan's valet, hit upon the plan of fur nishing Uhlan with spring water to drink. Tom figured ho would give the gelding a treat for a few days, but ho had no Inten tions of continuing the practice. "When Logan tried to change from spring wnter to the old va riety for Uhlan there was noth ing doing. The star performer positively refused to drink. That's why Logan makes a five mile trip on a motorcycle every morning to provide Uhlan with g spring water to drink. STYMIE IS DOOMED. Old Photo by American Press Association. Rumors arc now in circulation along tho National league circuit that Jim my Sheckard, the Cubs veteran out fielder, will not wear a Chicago uni form next season. Tho reports say Manager Chance is anxious to land a good twlrler and is willing to part with ( his left gardener. Sheckard is considered to be one of the greatest lead off men in the game. New Australian Swimming Phenom. It took time to .get here, but the Aus tralian mall Anally brought the fol lowing, which is given nnblushingly: "For several years Australia has been remarkable for tho production of fast swimmers, and the land ofthe kangaroo has maintained its reputation this season with another out and out phenom. Unlike tho Cavllls, Klcrnan, Wickham and Beaurepalre, who took more or less time to develop into the championship class, this new man, or, rather, bay, has earned record fame at almost his first header into the brine. "The name of the new wonder is W. Longworth, and he halls from Rose Bay, New South Wales." Featurs of Golf Likely to Bo Eliminated. Tho gun fired recently in tho west Intimating a renewal of tho attack npon the much abused stymie has been heard with conflicting emotions in the east. Just because n well known player in some Important match hap pens to lose a hole at a critical point, through being laid a stymie, falls to change a situation or condition that has existed for generations, say the loyal supporters of tho old school. When the rules of golf were drafted the, stymie became part and parcel of mo game, it is still sucn. nrven so, there are those who go so far as to say that tho Btymlo Is doomed, and that It Is only a matter of a year or two ero It will be banished in America. BURKE HAS MADE GOOD. Jem Driscoll Now Bookmaker Jem Driscoll, England's feather weight champion, has permanently re tired from the ring to become a book maker's partner on tho English turf. In a resent Interview Driscoll said that he didn't believe his health, would al low him to, train again nnd that, fur thermore, he was tired of tho game. "Abe Attell is tho best featherweight," said Driscoll, "and he can Justly lay claim to the world's title. Thero isn't a boxer in Great Britain who can beat him in a twenty round bout I beat him by a shade in New York, nnd 1 can tell you that he made mo travel at a fast clip." Innovation For Cricket. An interesting innovation was tried In Edinburgh by playing cricket with a time limit A team of profession als brought together by Plowrlght of the Academicals opposed a team com posed of tho best amateur players in that city, each side being allowed two hours to bat, the highest score decid ing the match. Unfortunately tho amateurs were disposed of In a little more than the hour's time, and what promised to be an Interesting contest had to be class ed as somewhat of a failure, the pro fesslonals winning comfortnbly. Brooklyn Middleweight Entitled to Bo Classed With Crackerjacks, Why all tho holler nbout Sailor Burke, lads? no cleaned Mr. Wlllus Papke Just as well as any tighter was ever cleaned, and yet some writers refer to tho tar as a third rater. Hasn't the Brooklyn deek scrubber proved his worth? lie. defeated Mon tana Dan Sullivan handily. lie also handed out a nice lacing to Tom Mc- Mahon. tho Pittsburg tiger. Then how about Ted Kelson, tho Australian bear? Didn't the sailor flop him on two dif ferent occasions? Wasn't Mr. Burko pegged for a fine lacing by nearly every sport in New York, nnd didn't he make Papke look like a boob? Of course Burke is not a Dempsey nor a Tommy Ryan, but you always mm m Do Pitchers Toil Enough? Now nnd then a little curiosity is expressed as to whether tho modern pitchers have work enough to keep them in good condition. This doesn't refer to their physical condition, but to their pitching condition. The custom has grown upon man agers to shift pitchers in a hurry If they happen to be batted hnrd when the gamo is close. For that reason almost all ball teams are carrying more pitchers in comparison with the actual work that they do on a ban field than they ever did. Tryouts For Olympio Aspirants. Tho Amateur Athletic union commit tee has practically selected San Fran cisco, Seattle and Portland for the Pa cific coast where candidates will con test for places on tho American Olym pic games team; Chicago, Cincinnati and Cleveland for tho middle west, nnd Philadelphia, Boston and New York for the east Tho scenes of the tryouts between tho nthletna of these cities will probably bo Portland, Cin cinnati and New York. It Is likely only three athletes will be chosen for each event Fletcher Duplicates Racing Success. The double success scored by J. Clarence Fletcher of Toronto in his Japanese racing last year, when he .won the Emperor's cup and tho Cham pionship cup at the Nippon Race club's meeting with the Australian bred mare Woodbine, has been duplicated this season -by the young Canadian. A mare called Bluo Bonnets won both cups this year. Si I'Vl.TW'fi'.-Jf 1 if &X 2 y3J Wh A DEAD AUTHOR WON A SUFFRAGE PRIZE.
