Gill, the Wright aviators, yesterday at the state fair grounds set two re- cords for flying in Minnesota, one that can never be shattered, and one that will probably stand for some time.

CHANCE, ONCE A HOBO, IS NOW WORTH Frank Chance, peerless leader of ;he Culls, was a hobo once, and ate icbo stew, and he says he has never tasted a better dish. Sullivan, 111., the first professional team Chance played on In 1895, blew jp. Chance wasn't paid, and he had to beat 3iis way ,home. He started for ?resno, CaX, flat 'broke. He was kick- ed off trains three times anoMt made lira so at baseball he made up lis mind to quit it, but he couldn't stay Quit, and two years later In 1S87. was signed by the Cubs. He went from an amateur team to Ohicago. Chance is now worth from baseball and Wise investments in Cal- fornia real estate. He became man- ager of the Cubs in 1905 as an ex.- lerlment. Since 1907 Chance has re- ceived a big percentage of the chub's (earnings.

Mai Carey, Pittsburgh ontflelder, is, perhaps, the most sensational young player that has jumped Into tbe major le.igne baseball since the da.- of "Ty" Cobb'- enlry. Carey is a brilliant fielder ns well as a bard liltter, aud Clarke surely picked up a jewel in this hnstllng youngster. Carey Is of temperate habits and, 83 a matter of fact. Is a preacher In tbe off season. Everything points to n great future for the preacher-ball player. BURNS ASLEEP IN' HEAT OF BATTLE Some of Bill's Stunts Outshine Those of Rube Waddell "There couldn't'be another like Bill says Frank Smith. "Nature only makes one of that kind in a hundred yairs, and then lays off to laugh. This one is on the level, too; One day when Bill was with the White Sox he was pitching against Walter Johnson, and the score was 1 to 1 in the eighth inning. Of course we were wild with excitement, and making all kinds of noise in our ef- forts to rattle Walter and to turn the tide our way. Bill came in from the slab and sat down on the bench. There no rvhance or his going to bat that inning, as he had been last man .up in the previous round, and 10 Bill had nothing to--do but to vatch the others. Presently Bill picked up a newspaper, turned his jack on the game and began to read. Three men went out and we started for the 'field. Bill wasn't there. Billy Sullivan ran to the bench, and there ay Bill, sound asleep, with a news- paper spread carefully over 'his face keep the" "I Knew Frank Would Win" Says Mrs. Gotch John McGravr's confidence In Rube Maruuard has finally brought forth re- sults. For two years the fans pan- ned the shrewd little leader ot the Giants to a crisp for hanging on to the erratic twirler, but he realized that In time Marauard would develop into a high class boxman. And no.v this same pitcher' is the sensa- tion of the big league. If the Giants win the pennant this year It will be because of Marqnard's Rraii'J work. When Mathewson suf- fered .his slump fandom the country over figured the Giants out of tho raca but it was right here that Marquard stopped In, nnd by Home marvelous heaving held the team right up near the top. And now that the peerless Matty is back in form and Marqnard ttlll traveling like a lionno on New Tork lifts a corking chance to eop the gonfalon. There nerer. any doubt In re- jard to Marquurd having the "stuff." There nefer was hurler who co.uld to w'tb. tho pellet. But his tortmsnt was spoiled through his wild- MM. He couM not the plsto ind ind ngoln he "went Still i refused to Ilrten to the talk that Murquwi should be traded or released outrlfht. McGraw saw that Marqnard could gain control by practice, and for two neasons he made the tall blonde-hair- ed hoy report at the grounds In the morning doing nothing but pitching across the pinto. McGraw woui'do the officiating himself, and when lie able to devote all his time to Marquard ho would assign Captain Larry Doyle to tho job. And during the last winter Marqjiard spent all his time in a gymnasium per- footing control. When tho Giants wont down to Texas for their spring training laut February, Marquard went with tho first batch from New York. McOravr Joined him five days later and jthe first time he saw Rube work he j marveled at the fact the heaver had perfect cor.t'.'d cf the wall, ami it didn't matter how much "stuff" die put I on It either. I Some people figured that Marquard Irtldn't the garaeness to make 'him a big league twirler, and that on this account always itscondofi. But that was not Rube fetrcd no team In the league but dimply lacked that one essential thing which, every pitch- er must have to remalu lu fust com- More than women saw the Gotch Hacksnzchmldt wrestling match at Chicago. It was "the first large attendance of the fair sex at a mat match In Chicago, although there have been a few present at several contests within the last few yeairs. The most popular person at tbe Sox ball park next to the champion himself was his bride, who with her father and mother, .Mr. and Mrs. Robert Oestrich, anil a few Intimate fricm'ls from Humboldt, la., occupied a box in the lower section of the grand stand and just to the south of the ring. Mrs. Gotch was within hearing of the deep breathing of the gladiators and not one point of the short and uneven tussle escaped her eye. After her husband had been pro- claimed tho victor, Sirs. Ooloji stood on her seat waving her handbag. It was what I expected all (ho she declared, "although I thought it would take Frank longer to turn the trick. My husband the champion or all champions, and ho 111 continue to so for many years. Othsrs may he stronger than he, hut they have not Iho science tlLit ho lias, and science Is what co.unls. I knew ho would win. Ho told mo this afternoon not to worry or grow ex- cUatJ timing the match. I obeyed the first Injunction, but I could not help being excited. I do hope theao people won't think me undignified Itecaubo I jumped upon my chair, my handbag, and shouted to my big hus- band." Says She Had "Selfish Interest" When assured she was not. the only woman at the match to show her en- thusiasm, the champion's wife said: "I am so thankful for that. They can appreciate my exuberance. Next to I'Yank, perhaps, I was more inter- ested in seeing him win than any one else could be. It was a selfish inter- est. "Hackenaclimidt Is what I have all .long him, a quitter, an old bloke, if you'll excuse the slang. Where he ever acquired tiie title of Is more than I can fathom. "Honestly, now, I believe, if I were a man, I would challenge him myself, small as I am." At Ihis point, Cy de Vry, head ani- mal lipopoT at Linculn park, pressed forward with his wife, whom ho pre- setted to Mrs. Ootcll. The two wo- men exchanged congratulations. I just want to tell you, Mrs. Cham- pion Golcli, that if tho lions under my husband's charge, at 'Lincoln arc in run same calibre as your bus- band's late victim, then I shall he-id a petition to.havo them driven from the said Mrs. de Vry. Mrs. Gotch laughed heartily at tho sally, nnd Bald she hoped Mr. dc Vry mid nnnifi R park lion after Uio champion. In tlio parly with Mrs. Gotch and her father and mother were: Mr. and Mm. 15. McMiLhon, K. K. Wlnno, I.. Wiiwc. O. L. Trcmaln, president of the People's Bank, at Humboldt, in wliioh Gotch's share of the stakes Is-depos- ited; Dr ,1. Butler and Dr. B. F. all from Humboldt. Mrs. Gotch Leads Rooting All the members of the party were enthusiastic rooters, .bin Mrs. Gotch was the bell wether in this refipoct. She woce a smile continually, and ne- ver lost a chance to applaud. Her first real opportunity came af- ter the first fall, when the champion pinned the shoulders of his glnnt op- ponent lo tlie mat after fourteen mln- jites of stubborn work. Almost be- fore the large in tho stand, a- round and behind her, realized the purpose, Mrs. Gotch was atflndlng up in her seat shouting and waving her handbag: "Goody, goody, I knew he'd do silo shouted, "Oh, Frank, look tills way." It must have been by Instinct, for he could not hear that small voice nbovo tin: bedlam, the champion turned his head toward where Ills wife was Htandlng. There was a "wide Eitiilu upon his face as ho caught sight "of hen1. Then he was wrapped in his dressing robe and lod away. It was not until this demonstration by the little white clad woman with the white waving plume in her hat, leading tho grandstand rosters, Urn I ;Vm location of tho champion's wife became generally known. Then Hie great crowd rose almost, as one man and woman, ami cheered for the little wife of the world's cham- pion wrestler. RUBE WADDELL NOW STARRING ECCENTRIC -SOUTHPAW ON THE WATER WAGON AND IS MIL- LER MAINSTAY Joe CtiiiUllon IMS mastered Ilttbo Waddell, and the former sensational lefthander is pitchine tho best ball of recent yours for Mtimeaiiolis this fifla- i. Not only tons Kulio climbed tho water wagon and !ms not made a wob- ble, but he has refrained from taking tlioao fifibing trips for., which he has been noted. He has done the bulk of the pitching for tho Miller's this ceason and Is leading nis team's pit- re by a good margin. Cuntillon Is using him aa much QS Duffy (loos Ed. Walsh. When Rube is not pitching own gmno he Is finishing one which is in danger for one of his team mates. Last Friday In Louisville Rube pit- ched both gomes of a do.ublo iioader and won them both. Strange to say he was hit much move freely in the first game thnn in the second one. Minneapolis is leading the OBHOCla- ion race, and looks Hko a sure, win- ner, and If tUie pennant goes there for! a second time, Waddell, more than any other individual will be respon- sible for the vlctorj'. Not since the year Connie Mack had Waddell and he made his wonderful record 1ms any manager been able to get good work out of the eccentric litcher excepting Cantillon this year. Even under Mack he took an occas- onal vacation without permission, omcthing he has not done .under Can- illon. t COBB FASTER THAN EVER MINSTREL MAX S TY COBB'S STUNT FOR THE COMING WINTER Pittsburs, Sept.

TV, ONE OF LAIT VIAR'S STARS, WHO 19 STILL STEALING BASES Tho two leadiiiB; bate ruDnerg In the NV.tlontll league last SOEHOU weru noschor, of the node, with seventy stolen 'bases, and Red Murray of tho Giants, second, with fifty-seven. In the American league Kddio Col- lins led with eiphty-ooe pilfered iaclcs with Ty Cobb second, with sixty-flvo Of theie four 1010 starfl upon tho paths it is interesting to note that three of the quartette are still in front. Sami Pair Leads In the National league Beecher leads to. date with thirty-three stolon bases, bolnpc closely pressed by Red Murray who has thirty. There are any number only a. short lap behind the pair, with twenty-seven or twenty-eight stolen sacks, but the point that Murray and Bescher still lead.-Murray is giv- ing Bescher a closer fight ovon this season than last, and the battle be- tween these two should be a corker at the finish unless some other entry steps in and crowds them out. Herzog with twenty-six stolen liable to civo both a hard ran, and It would be no great surprise to see the new Giant lead the field. Ot the entire clan, however, Bescher is undoubted- ly king of the Natioiml leaguo on the paths, for he doesn't get on base as often as either Murray or Cobb and he still loads. If he only batted abo.nt .320 there is no telling how far he might so. Cobb Getting Better Eddio Collins has fallen badly from his 1910 form while Ty Cobb is going faster than ever. Cobb ihas already gnr- nered forty-six steals. Tbe fleet Tiger.: Is likely to BO above ninety it this: clip. Supplanting Collins in last sea' son's ciuartet comes Harry Lord, ot. the Sox, who is second only to Cobb. Lord has now amassed thirty stolen bags an even tie .with Murray., in the. National. The Chicago third aacker bas improved wonderfully in his base running but will have a hard time nos- ing out Eddie Collins once that worthy gets started again. In the American league Callahan is coming as fast as Herzog in the Nat- ional. Come-back Jimmy has 'been run- ning like a gazolle of lato, stealing an average of a 'base per contest thruogb. the past week. 'In Front to Stuy It isn't, likely tjat Cobb wll! ever bo headed, as Bescher In the National doesn't get on often enough and there is no one else with sufficient to catch the Tlgerine. The GlantB how- ever have the greatest collection ot base runners In either league and with Herzog added should set a record in this helpful respect. Playing now with a team jip In tho hunt, it would be no great surprise to see Charley Herzog lead the National league in annexing the greatest collec- tion of stolen bases 'before the cam- paign is over. For Herzog can not only run, but he can get on anti his judg- ment is generally good in the way ot quick starting. arc made of tested, flexible materials 27 specially shrunk to hold their size.
