"That a ball player is not neces- sarily an athlete, according to the accepted 'meaning of the word, has been shown rather conclusively in the release of Jim Thorps, under option- al agreement to the Jersey City club of the International Icasue, says Bowman Bulger, an eastern sporting authority. "Thorpe, the greatest athlete Am- after two years oi effort has not been able to make good as a regular on the New York Giants. He was the lastest runner on the club, with the possible exception oi Hans Lobert he was the strongest of muscle by far he was the -best wrestler he had a swing that could throw a weight farther than any man on tho 'club and he could outjump any mem- ber oi the team by many inches. Still Thorpe was not a ball player. That is, not the kind JIcGraw must have.

"Our best is that Thorpe's mind -was not of the peculiar caliber ne- cessary to outguessing a pitcher while at bat, and be was not in the game often enough to develop a co-orilinate thought with the runner he was try- ing to advance. As a GETS FREE FUNERAL Death lias made possible the pay- ment of a bet placed more than four years ago on tho Jack Johnson-Jim Jeffries fight in Ileuo. At that time Walter Campbell, a negro barber of Little Hock, Ark., and a white undertaker in that town made a wager. According to the terms of the wager if Jeffries won, the barber was to shave the undertaker tree as !onE as both men lived. If Johnson won, the undertaker was to provide a fine funeral for the barber. Campbell died a few days ago, and the undertaker made good his bet. He provided the finest casket lie could find in that section and arranged a that lacked nothing in elabor- BASEBALL AM. ASSOCIATION Cleveland.................... it. Paul....................

Alter two years of infinite patience the Giant manager has turned the remarkable athlete, who is known in foreign countries where Chris'ty Mathewson or Larry Doyle was never 'heard of, over to City to see if continuous work will, develop him. George Wiltse may bring out the latent qualities, but that remains to be seen. "This experiment with Thorpe means, and it is a question that has been discussed among athletes for years, that a topnotch athlete is not necessarily a ball player, and that a hall player is not necessarily a gen- eral atlilele. The making of a dia- mond star requires a mental quality more, than mere physical -ability. "JIcGraw tried Thorpe as a regu- .ir at tlic beginning of this, season, figuring that -lie was ready now or would never be. Occasionally the In- dian could hit the ball a mile, but. more.frequently he would strike out. He apparently lacked the baseball in- stinct which, strangely enough is po's- sesKed in large quantities by even runts and weaklings who can not run fast, who are .not strong of muscle, anil who could not win 'an athletic Iprizc to save their lives. "The only thing lelt is for Thorpe to feel his way as a regular. If he can do better by working every day McGraw will give him a chance at the end of the season. If he can not he retires as-the greatest athlete in the world who could not win a berth a major league ball club."
