His believed' 10 have been caused by a blo'w on the head from a pitched ball. With the pennant winner assmi-ed in both the American League and the Rational League, world's scries con- versation is beginning to occupy the attention of the fans. Tte Giants, as last year, are not figured as having as good a team as the American L-en pue pennant winners of this year, buc great confidence is being displayed in their aggressive-ness, sameness ant fighting spirit. Tae pitching staff of the Giants is a rather enigmatical pro- position, and for a -world's series, ovit- fide of .Matty, k is not to put your hand on any other member of York club's staff and say. "Here's one pitcher who will win his You could say p, course, but barring Matty, you would hardly believe it yourself. JeS may get byc with a'win, but Rube Mar- Qnard will have to show more heart than he 'lias since his record run if lie hopes to score a victory over tire Red Sox. The others, Crandall.

Man- ager McGraw is credited with, being a very sharp fellow, and his methods are sometimes difficult to combat, but looking at the bati teams in a cold- blooded manner, Boston appears to hav-o the edge on New York. The out and out fans, of course, will be divid- ed on the proposition. New York rcoters can't see anybody but the Giants. Their visual limitation cost them a pot of money when the Ath- letics came to Gotham last y-ear, and they will be back again this year, only stronger, in the hope of getting and a Httie besides. Fans in other cities will cheer and root and show a personal appreciation of the merits of the players, but the New. York fans will delve down into their Jeans and bet their hard-earned dollars 'that they are right and that their team is the better icam. That's New York's way of doing things. They desire to feel in a substantial way the effects of their enthusiasm. BIG CROWD IS HOW THEY FINISHED Final Standings in the Two "Big Four" Eastern La- crosse Leagues D. L. A.

The deciding game between the Calgary Callies and HMlhurst is being played to a finish tonight, and to avoid another tie, the cor- ners will be recorded, so that if no goals are scored, the corners will count, and decide the game. The game Is called for four o'- clock, and, given a fine afternoon, It is safe to say that the Athletic Park will see its biggest crowd. Supt. Reid, of the street car sys- tem, has guaranteed to look after the traffic end of it, and will have plenty of cars to convey the crowds to and from the park. The Overseas team will be strengthened by the inclusion of several of the S. O. E. and Gallic players, who are properly regis- tered, and will make Calgary go some to win. On the last occasion when the Calgary Callies played here, the home team had the visitors going ali the way, and the cow-town kickers were indeed lucky to get away with 3 draw. The following will uphold the honor of Lethbridge, and should have a fine chance to romp home with the long end of the score; Sumner; Patterson and Home; CauidweN, Whyte and Wliletts; Brennan, Thompson, Parker, Lin- ning and T'ennant.

CHICAGO CUBS DRAFT OTTAWA SHORTSTOP YOU'VE GOT TO ADMIT THAT JOHNNY'S A BEAR Ottawa, Sept. 19. The drafting by the Chicago Nationals of shortstop Art Schwind, of the Canadian league team, came as a big surprise to offi- cials of the Ottaiva club, when the announcements were made by the Na- tional Commission. Scouts of the Cin- cinnati, St. Louis and New York Am- erican clubs had been here during the ball season, but the Cubs had not been heard from. The Ottawas were asked to name price on Sch'wiud, but they placed it so. high, hoping to escape the draft. au-d retain him for next scapon, that the Highlanders passed him up, hoping to get him by the draft. f Schwind did sensational work in the Canadian league and Shaughnessy thinks' he will make good in the ma- jors. He is now in Ottawa, employed by ;he Ottawa Electric 'Co., which practically controlled the local team. Schwind was turned loose. -by Fort Wayne at, the beginning- oE the sea- son. JOHN j., Last year when "Rube1" Marquard hit the bull's eye and pitched New York into the championship of the Na- tional wise guys said J. J. MeGraw was the luckiest manager in the game. Now they are pulling the same old "army stuff" because j Jeff Tesreau is niaklng good for the Giants. "It's just McGra'w's luck to have a bush, leaguer like Tesreau "come through for him in the said a fan the other night, McGraw's friends laugh and say "What's the difference as long as the little Napoleon gets there every year? Luck or no luck, you've got to hand 11 to McGraw." ENGLISH FOOTBALL London. .Sept. League today Milwall Athletics beat Merthyr Town by two goals to one.

Donaan 14 T. Gillespie, scratch Game Will be Played Extensively at the Y. M. C. A. This Winter Indoor baseball is one of the liveliest and most scientific games that comes within the scope of indoor games. Indoor baseball is going to be featured at the Y. M. C. A. this winter. The Herald stated a few issues-back that wrestling would be pro- moted at the "Y" this season to such an extent that.it would be among the foremost sports of the institution, but the grappling game will have a hot rival in indoor baseball for attractive sport. 'However, wrestling and Indoor baseball are not alike In any particular and there will be no conflicting of the two games. Basket ball is more closely related to indoor baseball, but it is not likely that, basketball will be played until after Christmas, it being the purpose of the physical department to let indoor baseball hold sway ii-ntil the holiday season. The game of indoor baseball was Invented in Chicago In 1887. Mem- bers of the Parragut boat club had assembled in the gymnasium hall on Thanksgiving day of that year and an old time boxing glove was care- lessly thrown into the room. One of the boys took up a broom and batted the glove back to the thrower, wheis Geo. W, Hancock suddenly exclaimed. "Say boys, let's play Thereupon'the huge wrestling match was hauled around to answer for a diamond and a lively game Look place, the broom handle having been broken off aiid used for the bat and the boxing glove taking the place of the ball. It proved great fun and at its conclusion Mr. Hancock gathered the members around him and unfolded a jila-a which occurred to him ss the players were sliding around the hall. "I believe the game can be worked into a regular game of baseball which can be played Indoors, and If you all come down Saturday night, I'll maku up some rules and a ball and a bat which will suit the purpose of the -sport and do no damage to the surroundi-ngs." And so on the night announced, two teams were chosen, end the rules were read which were made to conform with the surroundings and a large ball and a rubber tipped bat was produced. The contest was one of the funniest performances over witnessed, and the spectators were loud in their praises- of indoor baseball and the new sport was christened. From this beginning, tho sport has grown U'Zitll now it readies out into all parts of the country and thousands upon thousands are enter- tained during the winter months, cither as active participants or en- thusiastic followers of tho game. The rtrtc-3 of the game are not RO greatly different from those of outdoor bascbnll. A bASC-Ktealcr cnn't rim until the catcher holds the ball, being one that is distinguishing rule and another outstanding one is the pitching method. A pitcher can only um the bull the butter.
