To have him As an attraction on the recent death by suicide of Harry c. Pulliam president of the National league recalls to mind the fact that within the last Twenty year s there have been Many prominent baseball men who have crossed the great Divide by the suicide route. \ since 1s89 suicide has followed suicide and Many men whose faces had been familiar with Tho fans for Yea some who had lost miserably Hae Given up the struggle and taken the Long trip where hits and strikes Are never heard of. Frank Ringo seems to have been the first Ball player to take his life by his own hand. He was part of the famous Battery Coleman and Riri go and had joined the Pittsburg Tea n after a Long term of service with the quakers. It was on april 12, 1883, at Kansas City that Ringo swallowed carbolic acid and one of the Best catchers the country had Ever know a shuffled off his mortal Coil. In 1894 Edward j. Mcnabb the famous Baltimore Pitcher shot himself and died instantly at the Eifel hot i on Smithfield Street Pittsburg. It was at Rochester in 1895, that de Crane who is said to have made which occurred in 1900, will never be forgotten. Bergen who was the Star Catcher of the Boston nationals killed himself his wife and three children. In july of the same tear James Mccalligan of Tho new York giants killed himself by cutting his Throat. Man on first or men on first or second he runs up on a sacrifice picks it up with his throwing hand and snaps Tho Hall to either third or second to Cut off the advancing runner. He does it All in one motion. If he threw wit i his right hand he would have to Stop after he had the Ball straighten up make a half turn and throw. Jim m a Ouire is the Only athlete we can think offhand who might be headed off in this manner. A then Chase and Tenney both have a trick of snapping the Ball to second Nelson May meet Packey Mcfarlane on Jan. 12, 1903, Winnie Mercer the famous Pitcher with the washing i Normont they get. On a play at first ton team ended his life at Frisco on to catch a Man amp oing to second on a barn storming trip. Mercer turned out if he overruns the bag a step on the Gas. Fas l ase runners frequently do. Tot on March 2s, 1907, Charles Chick Ake be throw on a talk a a Stahl in Demphis life by drinking Cir Bolic acid at West Baden Springs. Two Days later p. D. Murphy a former teammate of Sthal and a min a league player committed suicide while attending his friends funeral at fort Wayne kid. He used the same Means. Alvin Rayne Rob Lankswert an i win. G. Palmer ended their lives within three months of the deaths of Stahl and Murphy. The latter three were minors. De Delehanty either jumped or for from the International Bridge at Black Rock while in route from Buffalo to Toronto. The Case of Harry c. Pulliam seems first baseman is naturally facing towards third. A left handed thrower can shoot the Ball almost As he catches it hut the right hander has to make a half turn. A in taking a throw to catch a runner off first the left hander has also a great advantage. The Man is sliding Back on his right Side his gloved hand. The Pitcher can slam the Ball Low and to the direction at the sliding runner and it is just right for a left handed Man. Rut a right hander in the mix up of the slide is Apt to g the throw on his Bare band and in Iff it. And if ii is thrown on the left hand Side of the base it might As w 1 not be thrown at All.

Of manager Mcgraw can secure Magee the hard hitting Quaker he is willing to give up Don Lin. The proposition is for Murray then to Trade Donlin to the Yankees for a couple of players and a Money consideration. The longest throw in the history of to be the Only Case of a Man High in dope it might be Well for Merke in baseball who Ever committed Sui-0 practice in the Outfield. 1 a although Merkle is not As great it first baseman As Tenney there As no particular occasion for regret As Sefc. True we Are not playing As polished baseball As before but we Are wanning Hall games we Are winning them As Hans Wagner slides any old left hand first basemen Are popular Peculiar tie i Quot it \ the american tay but Bey count so much per Cert flight Ine until october. Bat Bas battling Nelson will take on pack Strong lad at 133 pounds three holing by Mcfarland in a Battle for the a before the contest lightweight championship at the j to listen to the talk of both glitter is suggested by Mcfarland name Era neither holds any fear for the by 133 pounds three hours before the j other and when each tells of How he contest but the bout will not be. Will Knock the other out they speak staged until after october. This in All sincerity. Regardless of the Assurance was Given Packey Mcfear j outcome it will make one of the bust lands manager in a letter received j fights seen in years unless some cd Bere to Day from new York where Stacle bobs up and again Calls off Bat has been sending muh of his j All negotiations. Packey a time. The Battler will be Here to j or will be Busy at the Railroad shia Morrow and on sunday he and my Tion to meet Nelson when he arrives far lands manager May reach an tomorrow agreement and sign articles throw j. In the match open to the highest a bidder. From the Drift of the letter Nelson is not going to ask any outrageous Price neither is he going to demand the Lions share win lose or draw. It is evident that he will sign for a winners and losers end. That Nelson holds Bittor feeling toward Mcfarland is Plain in the let ter for the Dane attacks the Stoep Yards fighter with no endorsing terms. Men meet sunday. Nelson has asked tack Eye a manager and by the Way these two Are very intimate friends and no doubt this has much to do with Nelsons accepting that he meet him at his office at Hegel a Isufi and that there they would go Over the whole affair and that it was very Likely that the match could be closed. Nelson however Points out plainly that there will be nothing doing in the at the league office. A your new York fans who have baseball Are Apt to look upon the it a he a a poor dentist who is unable 6 0 5 2 to make a Good impression. Been used to seeing two such great first basemen Asha Chase and Frel Tenney perform have Only to watch an Active Young Man like Merkle substitute for one of them to come to the conclusion that the Day of the righthand throwing first baseman will soon be past a says a new York expert travelling with the giants. A a merges throwing has not played an important part in the game in St. Louis though there have been one or two make the bunt killing play on a sacrifice. His w Ork has been Ragga 1 in other respects. Although he is charged with Only two errors monday he muffed at least a dozen throws to first and one of these mishaps at Tho opening of the inning resulted in a run that tied the score. A we fans in Manhattan who arc familiar with the Wark of two of Tho greatest first sackers that Ever played playing As a matter of course. Not Many years ago As a matter of record Wiilie Keeler played a pretty decent sort of a game at third and threw left handed. We would like to see to promising men go Over to that bag now on a big league Ball club and Start in to break up the Bunting game with left hand throw s. A Well in a few years a right handed first baseman will be put in the same class. As real big league Mas agers develop tricks of defense from year to year the Ball is played More and More from the first baseman to other Points of the infield and a right handed Man is greatly handicapped in getting the Ball away from him quickly because of the Way he must stand to take throws of Field hits. A take for instance the bunt killing play just mentioned that Hal Chase Shook up the league with. With a Johnson starts hard training san Francisco. Aug. 30�?jack Johnson has settled Down to hard training at Emeryville for his fight with Kauf been busily engaged in the advertising of his Book and needs a rest. Coffroth has been working with Mcfarland a manager on this match and it is almost certain that Jas. Will land the Battle when Nelson gives the sign that he is ready to like on Packey. And some grudge match this Battle Between the two will he. Nelson probably carries inane on sept. 9, and those who have seen him stripped and at work de More hatred for the Little irishman Clare the Champion looks in Good condition in spite of his Long rest. The Champion was on the Road in the Forenoon and afternoon and Box of four rounds with Bobby Arm Strong who has been secured As his j Bronson sparring partner. Heretofore Armstrong has been helping Ketchel but As the middleweight is going to new York. Bob is free to go with Johnson. As much of his work As possible is done in the open As Johnson believes he did for Gans and vice than versa. Packey training hard. Packey is training hard at a local gymnasium for his fight with Ray at new Orleans sept. 12 and is already in Good shape. He will continue working after that match and fit himself into natures Best shape so that when Bat.
