I do not agree with a (food many people who have asserted the past that when a catcher goes behind tho bat he takes his life in his hands, and that he may be in the last game of his life. In my infancy It was dangerous work catching —I mean, before the new protective arrangements came into general use. For instance, you put a man behind tho bat to-day without gloves, mask or chest protectors, and 1 could not imagine a more dangerous position. In fact, I do not believe there is a man in the country brave enough to stand such an ordeal. In olden times, when underhand pitching was in vogue, I remember when it was possible for a man to catch without any protection whatever. But when the pitchers wore allowed to work their arms up over their heads tho gloves became necessary, and this was gradually followed by tho adoption of tho mask and body proteo- Indapo Made a well Man of e?

Inflelders nmd outfleldersi have also gradually taken to the glove. A •few veterans like Pfeffor and one or two others I might mention still disdain to malte use of any protection whatever, and are in that respect superior to the rost of the players. But there is hardly a professional catcher in the world who does not make use of some protection of soino kind. I am supposed in this article to jjlve such young- men as caro for tho tfame an idea ot' how to catch ball. Now, I mean to do this in jny own way, and I think that if I set clown some of tho rules which I consider necessary I may be excused if my method is not very literary. I would first of all maintain that I do not think- catching is dangerous if a ma» is quick wilted and has control of himself. Of course, a pood catcher is obliged to pay strict attention to the My advice to young-stcrs who are ambitious to become great en tellers is "to pet in front of tho ball." I!y this I mean that every catcher should catch tho ball direc'lly in front of him, and not at either side of him. Tho idea of side catching 1 Is to escape thc:dang-erof having the ball hit one in front or anywhere, but it is well known by this time to all who have paid any attention to tho subject that this style of catching 1 will not do. You will find that tho icon who practise it in the leaffiie to-day are gradually but Burely losing ciisto, A catcher cannot afford to flinch, no matter how speedy the delivery he is catching 1 . lie wants at all times to pet ripfht in front of the ball and to stay there. That is his only safety and salvation, for the man who dodgos and squirms is much more apt to pet injured than the man who holdly faces tho enemy. I can tell youngsters another very bad habit for ambitious but youthful back-stops to get into—tho habit once Been and occasionally in the big leagues. This fault is what is called amoncr ball players "fifi-hting-the ball," Uy this I mean the man who is in too (Treat a hurry to catch tho ball. This overeagerness seems to bo due to excessive nervous energy. The man who allows himself to become eo excited will frequently try to catch the ball before it really pets to him. I once knew a catcher whoso blood boiled so feverishly in a tight game that I have seen him grasp a ball even before the batsman had a chance to hit at it. Another point which I imagine will be of service to young folks, if they only know It, is tho proper manner in which to hold the hands. Very few heginners understand how their fingers should bo managed when they are In tho act of catching-. Those familiar with baseball will remark at times what nice-shaped hands one catcher will have while tho hands of other catchers will bo entirely misshapen and deformed by Ujjfly corns and hard patches. Now, in catching a ball a'nmn should either hold his lingers down or up, and never, \mdcr any circumstances, out towards the ball. Another necessary feature in catching is for u catcher to keep his finders together. Do not spread out your lingers in trying to catch a. bull, for if you do you will likely break one or more of them in the effort. This advice applies to the thumb also. In catching a speedy ball, no matter how bi£ and heavy the glove may be, the man should press the thumb njrainst the four fingers in the g-love. Of course, there are chances of a pitcher becoming wild and erratic whenever a battery gets signs mixed up. Then a catcher's position may become really dangerous. When a pitcher loses his temper and fires a ball everywhere but over tho plate, then a catcher's life becomes all but unbearable. This is the time when tho woes of the catcher may bo said to exist. A vicious out curve or a low, sweeping drop ball which hugs the ground are finger-breaking things which a catcher must look out for. Still, in modern baseball as it is played to-day team work has become so good, the battery understand each other so thoroughly, that there is little real danger. ' Pitcher and -catcher comprehend just what rate of speed will be safest. Then, boys, if you want to catch, go l ln and do It. If you have brains and can use them in all-ardund play, there is no need why you should be afraid to catch behind the bat. J. J. DOVLE. waiting anil hoping, you havo promised to be mine!

' Startling Expectation of A Guntl^ Jlurmtth. i \vq,s living in tlie town of Akyab, which is a very old Knglish port in Burmah, and among 1 oilier men there I knew and hud business with a native- born but Christian inan named Mordai. One day ho came to me anil asked mo to go over to some property he had on a neighboring island. Lie had beep having trouble about boundaries and wanted me to give him ij,n unbiased opinion. We started in a sailboat about 12 o'clock and grot to his place about 4. He and I got out of tha boat and went up to a small bung-alow ho had built there. These jungle bungalows are built on posts about six to tun feet from the pround and consist of simply the floor, the roof and sometimes walls run up six or seven feet. There is no ceiling and nothing overhead but the roof, which is made of bamboo and thatched with loaves from the toddy plant We were sitting on the veranda, the roof of which was not more than five or six feet from our heads. Mordai was talking to mo about the boundary, •and I had become quite interested in some maps ho had in his lap. While engaged in examining- them I felt some thing 1 fall and strike my shoulder. I rose quite slowly, still talking to Mordai, and turned about to see what was in my chair, thinking that perhaps a piece of bamboo had been blown down by tho wind. As I turned my back was toward Mordai and I was struck motionless by a hoarso "For God's sake, don't move, Sahibl" From the horror in his voice I knew as well as if I could see it that a cobra, or a khorite, equally deadly and more numerous in that part, was on my shoulder. I stood perfectly motionless, for I knew that tlie snake, belug- aroused now, would strike if he felt the least movement Cold perspiration stood out on my forehead, and I set my teeth hard and waited. It was a toss-up, I knew; either deliverance, and that speedily, or the sharp, stinging punctures in my neck or head, and then—death. Every minute seemed an age. My suspense was the more horrible because I could not see my enemy, and so could not tell the moment he would strike. Probably not a minute elapsed from the time I stood up until I saw Mordai approaching mo from in front, but it seemed to mo a 3 - ear. He had gone through one of the rooms-and thus got around in front of me withon! disturbing tho snake. In his hand he held a Burmese dah (a sword) and 1 knew that he meant to cut the snake down with one strong stroke. He Crept up close beside me and raised the sword, trembling in every limb. Ilia face was ghastly and his eyes seemed glazed with horror. The sword trembled for a, moment in his nerveless hand, and then with a hoarse whisper of "My God, I can't do it," he let it fall from his hand and tottered to a chair. He was an old man and his nerve had given way. lie dared not risk the result of his blow should ho fail to cut down the serpent. When the sword fell I could feel a slight vibration on my shoulder, and I closed my eyes, expecting to feel the cold pat and the sharp stinging thrust 01 the death- Jealing fangs. I stood perfectly motionless, but my mind worked with the rapidity of lightning. I felt almost grateful that Mordai had not struck, for I could see that his nerves were so unstrung that he would in all probability have missed the snake. I knew .that our servants and boatmen would soon bo up with our traps, and my only hope was to stand quite still until they arrived. Time will never eit'ace the memory of that death wait from my mind. In tho ch:iir, shrivoled and ghastly, his hollow, h:il£-gla/.ed eyes sturing- at mo with the helpless, fascinated ga/.e of a bird li:vlf in the toils o£ a serpent, huddled Mordai. Mir, white, bloodless lips moved sp;i»modic;illy, us over and over he repeated in n dread whisper: "(!od! the brown death!" I then knew it was a khorite. Clinging to my shoulder was a snake ton times j more malignant and merciless than a cobra, and just as deadly—"The Urown Death!?—of the natives, a reptile of which it has been said, that if a mail wore to gazo for any length of time into its eye he would become insane. Unlike all other creatures it has no pupil to its eye—nothing but a brown mass of malignity. I do not know how long it was, but it seemed an eternity of time that 1 stood thus. At last the swinging Ma-d- rassi song 1 of the boatmen carrying the stuff broke on my ears like a souir of deliverance. Dull and monotonous it had seemed to me often enough, but now it sounded like the sweetest music ever caroled. Their singing 1 seemed to arouse Mordai from his tranceliko stupor, and staggering out ho grasped my faithful servant, Emir-Alli, by. the shoulder, and with his lean, bony linger pointed toward me. Xo need of explanation for Emir-Alli. My heart gave a throb of joy when I saw his supple, careless form straighten, up and his black eyes glisten with the light I had seen in them before in time of deadly peril. Twice before had we fronted death together and his nerves had been steel and his heart had not faltered. Even now I see him as he stood just outside the veranda, one of the few natives a white man hart trust- FiTSt If MfMMMMMf •••••• Washday Witches Second IMtle Witch: "We can -with the trouble cope— With Santa Qaus, that •wond'rous soap." 3 Witch i "Bubble, bubble, boiler bubble, Washing day brings lots of trouble I" All."Santa Clans, O magic come Of the soap of world-wide fame." i -SANTA OAUS SOAP- —MADE ONLY BY— N.

Cntliollclnni In tilt- Knr.il niotrlctn of the Fr«nch Itcpubllr. Catholic customs relating to the dead are strictly observed. Each newly- built house is blessed by the priest; masses arc said to prevent tlie cattle from having the plague. Crosses blessed on "Kogation"days are planted in the fields, and processions tire made through tho fields in order to draw the blessing of God on the harvest Then there is no department in France which has not its pilgrimsifrcs and "pardons." These details show that Catholicism is still deeply rooted in the minds of the French peasantry. When, however, one has exceptod old incn and women and children, one finds that the rest of the community profess little or no religion. They rarely go to church except at Christmas, F/nster, the Assumption of the Holy Virgin, and All Saints' day, nnd if they do ;fo it is to meet tlu-ir friends rather Uuin from religions motives. (K course those men never go to confession. Vat they are not hostile to tlie priest. What ho. says and docs is a matter of indifference to thein. I!ut a curious fact is that these very men would object to their daughters beiiiG- married before the mayor only; not that they are quite sure it would be wrong not to be married by the priest, but it is an old custom practiced by all. The same men confess and receive extreme unction when they are on their deathbeds. Again, they are not sure that it is of any good, but, after all, it can do them no harm; and, as it is the only remedy they have, they may as well try it There nre no entirely civil marriages or burials in that country, even In indifferent families. The generation which has grown up under the republic is more markedly indifferent, yet still it is not markedly hostile. It simply takes no account of the priest; that is all. Of course there are some exceptions, but the average Frenchman is not much of a fanatic, either way. At the sume time 1 must qualify these observations by saying- that some regions are far more Catholic than others. In the north of France, Flanders, Artois, I'icardy, Xortnandy and in Vendee people are more deeply attached to Catholicism than in the other parts of France.
