IM TAKES A SHOT AT SLACKERS A SHE SAYS GOODBYE \V lU MavnnvlUe. after spending a briet fui'.ough from his ship, the drea(lr.:\\iRhl Pennsylvani;!. playlns .-ihorl-top for tlie Boston Braves said gomlbye to b;iseball again at the closo of til.?

"I'm mighty proud," said Stallings "to be manager of the club which furnished not only the first big league player to enlist-Sergt. Hank Gr.wdy -but also another man whoso patriotism actuated him to ault a game lie loves almost as much as lite itself, Walter Maranville. I only wish I had nine such men left on my club. He'll j succeed in the navy, for Ue's primarily a fighter." Painter Playe.-s Hurt Themselves. , The Rabbit himself was modest ; about -his own part in tho winning of I the war. but he did have quite a bit to say about ball players who dodge mtlitary 'service by going to work as ship builders. Not only would they be sorry lor it at some future day, said Maranville, and were thus hurting themselves, but they were hurting baseball generally as they gave many people the impression that the players are a lot of slackers. "Ball players who are in the draft and jump their clubs to go to work in the steel and shipbuilding leagues are not doing baseball a bit of good," said Maranville, when asked for his opinions of baseball and the war problems that beset it.

"I like tho navy because I like the water; always did. From the time I wtts able to go into tho water I hav? been a swimmer nnd I sailed a boat around Boston for years. When the chance came to get into the :iavy I grabbed It, although 1 hated to leave baseball. It was not necessary lor me to go, and I beliove I could have played this season out with the Braves. I hod dependents, but I have taken care of them, and more than glad that I enlisted. My oxperience has been two trips over with transports, nnd it certainly was exciting. I enjoyed every minute of it. "But don't think the navy is a sort of soft berth for fellows who don't like the idea of being in tho trenches, in spite of what the marines tell you. We have our share of dangers, and that's not all. We expect the time to come when we'll do our big part in thi'j war and that's the day we're .ill waiting for-when the German fleet comes out and wo go after it and put. It "out ot business. 'That will be some tight and they say it's sure to come. "I hope the major leagues will not be made to suffer by this work or light order and that they will be allowed to continue until the season's finish I hope to be on shore leave to see the world's series and nothing would please rac more than to see my friend, Fred Mitchell, pilot one|pt the clubs in that event. I think hi will, aa he has a good ball cl'tb, a fine bunch ot fellows and unquestionably the pitching start any team has had in tho league for many yean. "I don't suppose there's a chance for the Braves, but It's still my ball cluh and I'm going to pull for it anyway. I had a pleasant time with my pain and I hope I helped them a bit, anywty. I was glad to see tho t:iiiB again, too. I like them and I hope tliey like me, and that they'll want mc back after we win this war." fj, ,: .;. > .;. .;. .> >> .gi 4 ? ? ? TRICKS IN THE NOBLE > : ART OF FISHING �; ? > : : * : ? ? ? Fishing is the le.TdIng American sport, next to the pianola It is carried on almost entirely in sporting papers, but can bo done in streams and lakes. TheJatter form of fishing is known as tho empirical or experimental method. Fishes are divided by science into two families, edible and non-edlblo. Edible fishes arc those that are landed. Edible fishes weigh from one to throe ounces. Largti- fish than this live in literature and do not take tlio bait. To go fl.ihlng fluceosstully it is necessary to have an outfit consisting of a day off, a liook and a piece ot string. There are innumerable varieties of bait, Buch as wonuH. grasshoppers, beetles and toy torpedo boats, known as casting halts. Casting is done by hurling the torpedo boat violoiitiy into the water and hauling it back until the flshe'r faints. There are hotter baits, such as lobster pots and dynamite. The noblest fiHliIng is fly fishing. It Is the art of throwing a miniature feather duster on ilio water In the hopq that it will look like a fly. Count-loss fislioB instunUy depart from all points ot the horizon to look at it. Fly fishermen count these countless fiahoH and report tho number minutely to the Bpoj-tliig editor. Even the smnliest fishes reach en-oi-mouB weighlB. This Is because tho scales carried by iho fishes are not BulIUdenlly inspoclcBd. The moat diaa.stroua mistake In fish-ing is patloiicc. If ii imU does not blto Instantly (he fislier HJinuid try another places at onco. AViur trying throe plncoH without Hiicccis the flsher will do hoHt by hailiuK the, place out with a bucUot. Tho bait for goncnil fishing iH the worm. Thist is a iDngitudinally elong-6tod tubular iiiHoct. It is enormously ploiitlful over tlie ontire habitable globe except whiiu it i;i Wanted for halt. Worms then cost one cent per worm. Ho Is made into bait by being impaled on tho hook. This Is not painful to the worm- He is prevented only by lack ot speech from expressing his delight. The worm should bf. lowered into the water kindly and firmly. A fish will snap it up Immediately. This fish may bo a salmon, bullhead, finnan haddle or a tin can. Some fishes are known as game fishes. This .is not because of their flavor, but because they jump Into tho when hooked| Many fishers refuse haughtily to fish for any except game fishes. The beat way to get a tame fish In to play him until he jumps and th^n stun him. with a club. Tho loading game fiah of the United States is the speckled beauty. Uncultivated persona call this fish a trout. The speckled beauty Is speckled with vermilion, green, purplo and blue spots over a brown moire and watered silk effect. It ranges in size from two inches to monsters ot three nnd tour, and lives exclusively In babbling brooks not less than one inch deep. It is fished for with artificial files and caught with worms. Bullheads are more easily caught than trout. This gives them a much finer flavor. The bullhead can be identified by i?rlpplnB him flrmly. If It Is a bull head the flsher will find tho fish nicely nailed to his hand by handsome spines. Tho bullhead has the openest smile of any fish, except the sperm whale. Tho sperm whale, however, is not a true game fish. He is an independent oil refiner, who was pushed Into the sea when John D. Rockefeller .was evolutod. One sperm whalo Is considered a fair catch for one day's fishing. Fishers who would rather fish for numbers than quality usually devote thomselveu to the eel. Tho eel is exceedingly easy to catch, but not so easy to un-catcli. A 10-inch eel swallows the hook and 60 teat of line In tho moment ot Impact. The fishor must jerk violently, as soon as tho eel bites. He will then discover the col looped handsomely around his neck and tied with a sailor's half-hitch. A somewhat moi'e aristocratic sport is salmon fishing. A salmon Is caught with a pole that has been sawed Into throe or more pieces nnd put togolhor again at an expense ot not loss than $100,00, Tho salmon fisher boglna at dawn to cast Into tho sulmoa pool with his pieced pole and continues casting imtil suh-set. A guldo then waics Into tho pool and gets tho salmon HlM ^ gafC-Uook, There Is also salt water fishing. Salt water fishing is not fishing tor salt mackerel as many unsclontiflo thinkers bollove. Salt -water fiahera catch bluofish, . blnckfish, whiteflsh, pollocks nnd, other nationalities. Tho equipment for a anlt water fishor Is a stronger pole, one mile of twine, a moat hook and a aldfcwhcel steamer. Tho steamer is to get seasick on. Tiie very best way to fish ia by trpll-Ing. It la the favorite method of tat men who fish for exorcise. TroUiiif; Is done by sitting in an easy chair In a boat and being rowed around by a friend. The troller holds a polo nnd line. At tho end ot this line Is a piece ot machinery that revolves swiftly if the rower is kept to his work by Judicious remarks from the troller. The machine has a bouquet ot colored feathers attached to It, together with as many hooks as possible. Very often a rowor will have rowed barely fifty miles before a fish is hooked. Enthusiastic trollera keep a supply of fresh friends on baud during the trolling season. A. A. BITTUES. EASYllEAf \ TWO SPORTS, LER steeplechase Riding and Wrest-ling Give Fakers Great Chance. Several years ago George Bothner, the groat little wrestler, went on record as saying that he never would take his oath regarding the honesty of a wrestling bout. Not that he meant all wrestlers were crooked. In his opinion, however, two wrestlers could so fake a bout that even an expert could not tell It the men were wrestling on the level. Followers of the turf are ot the same opinion regarding steeplechase racing. It is so easy to fall oft u horse at a jump that the experts cannot distinguish the falsa from the genuine that Is why steeplo-chase racing is not particularly popular with thoso who like to go to the tra^k every day, to sit out in the air and watch the horses running to -well, make an occasional friendly bet. Such at leaat waa the opinion at the Aqueduct, where the rank and file 'Tashion Crar \ Suits REDUCED TO CLEAR AT $18.75 Disposing ot every broken lo:-r every old suit-at such a price thrit'.y men \yill recognize as tho lowest, iliey'ro likely to ace.
