Imagine this from a demure young miss just out of her teens. xThen "I'd rather play baseball than eat. There's no fun for me in watching he men play unless.I'm in the game nyselt." Elizabeth Murphy, ot Warren R.I. Iocs get out and play baseball with the men. She asks no favors for her sex either, and has her home town viid with excitement every time she don's a man's uniform and plays in the regularly scheduled game oi the Varreri Athletic Olub. Easily 'the best g'F1 Da" P'ayer in the country is the rating given Miss Murphy by' keen observers who have seen -this phenomenon of .the diamond n action at Providence, Newport, anii in other places in Rhode Island. "They came to make tun of said Miss Murphy, with all the as- surance of a Ty Cobb, "but I show- ed them that I can play baseball just as good as any man." How this spirit of confidence herself works out is seen in the last game the Warren Shoe company nine jlayed with the fast naval training station team at Newport, with Miss Murphy at first base. The Warren nine lost, but the girl at first accepted-sixtecn chances with- out an error, made a sensational stop ot a line drive with her gloved hand, and caught it with her bare hand as it bounded away, and-, figured in sensational double play. .A hit, _ a sacrifice was her batting card. "I guess the baseball craze was born in continued the younj wonder. "I played catch with.'dad when I was a mere tot then in scrub games with the boys, and for last six or seven years with amateur nines around Warren.'

Number II is Ucut.-Col. George Stephen Cant- lie, who recently landed in England in command of the 42nd Highlanders. Lieut.-Col. Cautlie joined the railway on Jan. 1. 1885, as a clerk in the Audit Dept. and attracted such attention that the following year he was appointed Assistant General Manager and Assistant to the President. He rapidly rose to be Superintendent of the Car Service, and on Nov. 23, 190S, was made General Supt of the Car Services, a position ho occupied he volunteered for overseas service.

This is just a littie ater than when they started last sea son on their wonderful winning streak, which earned them the Na tional league pennant and then the world's championship. Johnny Evers sure is the kingpin of the Stallings' brigade, for it is just since he joined their team that they have been win- ning so regularly. Giants Climbing It's not too late to consider the New York Giants as possible con- tenders in the National league. Me- Graw's outfit has been showing sighs of olass lately, and this not altogeth- er on the part of The New Yorkers are playing along with a litt'ie infusion of new blood, but the "little Napoleon" is beginning to re- alize his hopes that, after all, experi- ence is what tells.

Par is figured on an exact bas- is of distance, regardless of obstacles. Par for Mayfielcl Is 73 strokes. Bogey never was figured there since the pre sent course was laid out. Esien at the Front Jimmy Essen is well known in Olc Country sporting cirries, especially in wrestling, for it is in that pastime that he has 'built up an enviable repu- tation.

The day he arrived in Manchester he was appointed a ser- geant in the East Lancashire A.S.C., and la at present "doing his bit" somewhere in France. JOHNNY EVERS Johnny Is a ball player than he is good looking. The Boston Braves are skipping along with that c'id stride that dazzled baseballdom last year'about this time, and it's all due to Evers' return to the game, 'tis said Evers was hors de combat for no lit tie nerio'd, but is now setting the lea gue'on fire with his aggressive work Lawn Bowling EMPIRE CLUB .WINS BANKERS' CUP AGAIN There was a splendid turnout o Sawn bowlers last night on the Gal Garden greens, when the Empire club came bad; strong, and took the Bank ers: trophy home with them Me Nabb's and Adams' rinks played a nip and tuck same, with McNabb win niiig, one Dr. Marrs' rink too!
