He won an argument from Buck Ewiiig Now York one niijlit ' he might have lost, except 'that his point was nmde so siKldonl.v that Buck was dazed until it was too Into to get l)ack-�and by that time Kit was safely out of reach. The qties -tion was as to the figure which hii;k cuts in catching foul tips. Buck was arguing that it is all luck, while Kit maintained it was not. that the catcher Is guided by instinct, and that, in some instances, he actually has time to think and direct the motions of his hands. "Well," said Buck.Tiimsclf perhaps the greatest catcher that ever lived. "It may be so, but 1 never yet thought quick enough to think between the time the ball tipped the bat end the time it hit me. or went past. If it isn't luck, hov- do you account, for the catch Em Oro$s'in:idc at Providence, when the ball struck him, doubling him up, nnd, in so doing, he was so bent over that l.e held the ball?" That exactly is the case that proves my point," said Kit, triumphantly. "Gross told me about that c^itch hitnaclf. He knew the wind was escaping from his breast protector, and, when the foul was hft, he realized in a flash that being un�i>le to ina\'e his hands quick enough to get the ball he must catch it oth.>rwise so ho doubled over, tet the ballstrike the crcnfle %n the pad, and bending further, held it there until he could get his hand to it." Buck sat as if stunned, w*ile Kit ntarchcd off in trium)>h. and then he said: "That's funny. Em never made any such catch, and, Ijcsides, thiiy didn't have pneumotic [irotcctors in those day. "Which proves," said a bystander "Kit's contention that, while .vou may not think fast enough to cat-:h foul fips. some catchers can." "Or that KW has nK> Iwat lyit^." agrccti Buck.

He leaned over Mr. Hart, pretending to pick something up, and then stated that ho was going to ask for the Intervention of the conductor.

An aero of ground hear the north-cast comer of CHy Park, being utilized by Robert Gauss, a newspaper man, as an experimental farm v on which ho is endeavoring to bived drought resisting plants so that millions of acres of arid lands in the West may be made productive, is attracting the attention of ItMytanists and agriculturists In all parts of the United Sutes, and experts connected with the United States .Department of AgricuHure are taking much interest in the results obtain -ed by Mr. Gatiss. Mr. Gauss's experimental work, which he has been doing quietly for the past ten years, has become so important to Colorado and,the West that the- board a few months a^o told Mr. Gauss that it would set a* side a tract of land Tor him. Prior to that time ho used ground in Montdair. Since 1896 he has been following a theory which he nrst preached twenty years ago. .The re-suits have been remarkable. Briefly set forth, this is Mr. Gauss's idea: Adapt vegetation to physical conditions. Make wheat which grows in a humiid soil grow in an arid soil. Sow the wheat, or other plant,, in the arid soil, and from the product take the saedwnich is the best and which came fromi the hardiest of the plants and sow it the next season.. After much sclcit -ion of the best seed in time you will breed a plant which will not raqure much HKiisture. 1'he piah'sounds sii^ple , cnouiih ai*d is diroCtly opposite to the Campbell dry' farming sy.-jteni. .Mr. Gauss's idim is 'to make the plants grow in the "nrid"rogioh regardless of the condition orthc soil. Mr. t:aniplK}irs idea is to treat thc.soii so as to hmko the piantH grow. The men have starteci ifrom the two u.v-trcmes. Both hav6 been successful to some extent. The theory o^ artificial .selection advanced by Darwin and Wallace is Ijciiig worked out by Mr.'Gauss. During the ton years In which he has lieen at work he has conyinoed himself that drdugbt-resistln^' \ cereals can bo grown. "I do not thihk^ that the probioms of acclimatizinjj; cereals or species of any other kind." says Mr. Oauss, "to arid conditions have been solved. It will require a lung itime end much patient and careful ycork. to reach the desired goal.' But lam fully convinced tHi^t although ' tho way may be long H is praotlooibfo io traverse it. and that it presents th'> most satisfactory solution of - the problem of arid agriculture in that part of the country wliiich lies east of the Rocky Mountains." Mr. Gauss is as,'a propiiet whd lias pointed the wa)'. Frbm rlMuHs thus far obtained toy hlm.^ H-^lfeems certain that in the course of time, perhaps a few generatldiiff; all the west will have become productive through the planting of seeds from plants which have been acclimated and which have become accustomed to an arid soil after having been raised in a hundd soil. - Denvr The.
