Mike Kelly, of the St Louis clubL is as clever as they make them in selling players to the majors. He had a second division club last sea- son, and yet is credited -with raking in on the sale of players. New York fans rejoice that Christy Mathewson will be with them next season. Christy attached his signa- ture io the contract when the New York magnate agreed to let him play Indoor baseball and basket ball during the off season. Jack O'Connor, manager of the St. Louis Browns, says that a catcher once asked him what kind of a ball he would like to clout at. "I told him a slow one inside. And, would you believe me when I say, that he actually signalled for the ball? I wa so surprised when I saw it com- ing that I almost broke my back try- ing to hit I didn't." Andrew Freedman has long bsen credited with -being the principal own er of the New York Giants, but such is not the case, according to one of the Board of Directors, N. Ashley Cole. "John T.

Following the match Saturday between Ottawa and Renfrew, when Capt. Bruce Stuart broke his collar bone in the collls- sion with "Cyclone" Taylor, of Ren- frew, there was an emergency meet- ing of the Ottawas at the Russell house, the question of immediately getting a man to fill Stuart's shoes being taken up, Deeton was su gested, and the Ottawa club is under stood to be in communication with him.

The former pugilistic marvel is many inches shorter than Johnson, but that will make no particular difference. Joe knocked out more than one good man who towered far above him. John- son wants the Barbadoes demon as a second and adviser. It would be in teresting to know -how Walcott would fare against Johnson when the for- mer was at his best. In those days Joe wa afraid of nothing that walk ed That he would have given John son a desperate battle none will. deny.

He will meet Griff Jones, colored boxer, in Danbury, Conn., tnis month. Battling Nelson will start trailing this week for flis bout with Ad Wol gast near San Francisco on Washing- ton's birthday. Nelson has a retinue of trainers and sparring partners to assist in putting him in condition. The Battler realizes only too well that Wolgast is no sinecure, but says he will trim'' him with neatness and dis- patch. Bat does not like the things the Milwaukee star has been" saying about him. Coast experts contend that the Dane will have a large job on his hands in defeating Wolgast.

But it's a sure thing that Welsh will hot allow Nelson to get win; lose or draw, the plum he is to receive for his bout with Wolgast.
