VANCOUVER SURE OF HOLDING ONE TROPHY Have Lost Minto Cup, and Baseball Pennant is Slipping, But Have Cinched Mann Cup Vancouver, Sept. Minto cup is gone and the baseball pennant is slipping away from its moorings, hut the Mann cup still occupies a-promin- ent place on the Vancouver Athletic Club's cup-laden cabinet.

C. The upper rows of the structure being vacant, he perched there In strange isolation ail unmindful of the clamor- ous fans below him. At times he drew a gilt-edgi2d memorandum book -from his pocket, made some note's, replaced it, ami resumed his steady scrutiny of the iield. There Atlanta and Columbia of the Southern League were playing. The score 'was close; it was lively base- hall; yet the man never became on- thusiastlc. Only when Atlanta's' slen- der, blonde-haired outfielder swagger- ed to bat, danced about the base lines or swept across lots, pulling down high-hit halls, did the man appear in- terested. Then the little notebook would appear again and-as quickly vanish, says Edward Lycll Fox in Harper's Weekly, Innings passed, and when the little young outfielder had stolen his fourth base a look of satisfaciion came into the man's face. Later he left the grounds as quickly as ho had come. That night a message went over the wires from Columbia to the' head- "quarters of the Americas Leagira Baseball Club of Detroit, Mich. The message read: "Transfer your option on Pitcher Olcott of Augusta to Out- fielder Cobb of tho same club." And Datroit did, for the sender of the message was the mysterious man of tho major league scout. That is how Tyrus Raymond Cobb was discovered.

Speaker has a farm down in Texas; Lewis and Hooper came from the sunny coast of California. Speaker is the most valuable man of the trio. He Is tho most valuable because he fs the more sensational. He is the glitter of the Boston out- field for the same reason that Cnhb is the brilliant light of the Tiger far gardens. He pulls off more spectacu- lar catches, he Mis better and he is more speedy and daring on the bases. Furthermore, Speaker lias had the most.publicity.
