A ,V Tralnor will I Burlingtons. The eeason of the Western association has opened and Des Moines has gracefully lost the first game through the wretched fielding of players who (have demonstrated that they knew better. It was a poor game, and Purvis, usually reliable, was responsible In a degree for It. Traflley claims It was lost because there was not enough ginger In the locals and gives it out cold that the "old man" will be in uniform from now on and will make the boys liven up or, take their places and how them how It is done. He says he will be ready to jump into every game played, but won't do It until he has to. His Idea in putting on a uniform is to be able to go down to the coaching lines and liven things up. He says he can make an addition to the fielding talent in the nest few days and expects Babls, the new pitcher, here In time to help do up the Cedar Rabbits outfit, which will be here tomorrow from St. Joe. Tn the onenlnir Rockford played here, Dubuque at Burlington, Cedar Rapids at St. Joe and Quincy at Peoria, and Btrange as it may seem, every visiting team won. The attendance was satisfac tory everywhere except at nurnngcun, and indications were that the season will be a profitable one. At Burlington enly seven hundred people turned out to the opening game. The attendance on the percentage plan will have to be better than that at Burlington or some other town will get the franchise. , 'With the opening of the eeason it was discovered all roads with the exception of the Great Western have pooled together to charge a straight fare of 3 cents a mile for all players, which is twice as much as was charged last year. Of course the managers are sore and will try to secure a reduction. There Is some prospect of this, but as yet nothing certain is known. St. Joe, Des Jktoines, Rockford, Dubuque and Cedar Rapids can be reached by the Great Western and the prospects are excellent for that road having thrown to it es much of the business as it is possible to give It and make the schedule. Base Running:. ' An official percentage of base running in the National league has been made out. Twenty-five players have averages of .320 per cent to a game and tetter, running as high as .S73. Hamilton of the Philadelphia), who is this year with Boston, leads for the second successive year with the high percentage of .783, which is .027 per cent better than he held the previous years, and 025 better than Camp, of the Chlcagoes. made as leader of base running in 1893. In 1894 only seventeen players had an average above .320, and it is therefore demonstarted that some progress has been made In the science. The table is as follows: rNTame uames. isases. m (Hamilton 121 95 Lange 122 79 Hufricver " 1U Bannon (Ne.w York) 37 McGraw 92 Hoy Jennings 1,u Kelley "J Cortwright Keeler ..,.........131 Cross (Pittsburg) 108 O'Connor 88 bat three times, made a hit, had five put outs, mree asbisis aim no errors.. play short stop for the Rreen, who was signed hy Comlskey. was yesterday given to Dubuque and he attached tits name to a ijtintique contract.

The Burlington papers are much dissatisfied with the local team and are roasting the whole out lit, from the management down. The Hawkeye says: "Nearly all nt the. men now under contract will be eligible next year, but what Is wanted most Just at this time Is some men that can nave the city from disgrace this year. The management promises this and It is doubtless with a view of farming out part of the present force that stars are now being sought for; we already have a. few and everybody who has observed the games thus far suspects who they are. But it will take more than six or eight good men to win a game in the Western association this year.

They are also notified to umpire behind the plate when first base is not occupied. They are also warned against dissipation under penalty of a heavy tine. The following is the roster of the Burlington club to date: Catchers. Walker nnrf Njurle: nltchers. Bureett, Cantlllon Collier, Hageman. Schlcker. Smith and Ben White; first base, Pop Hinee; second base, Hengle and Tralnor; luro nase, Evans and Creeley; short stop, Parker: fielders, Jackson. Mongls, Parent, Bob White, Riohter, Williams and Wilber. A total of twenty-two men so far, and after the weeding process commences not more than fifteen will be carried. Mananer Nlcol Is modest. Seven out of twelve games is all he wants on the first trip. Duckv Holmes, of Iyoulsville, has no use for a sling now, but his shoulder Is still covered by a plaster cast. Six of the men signed by Burllncrton have been released as below the standard required, and Grimm. Mahaffy and White of Indianapolis signed. Walsh, of last year's team, will also be here. Ben White, a crark pitcher from Chicago, came in Thursday mornln This will make three players named White in the team. The team needed the strengthening. Traflley has made a lucky strike in se curing additional pitching talent, and yes terday closed a denl with Manning of Kansas City for Pitcher Babis, who has been doing excellent work In the Western lenffue exhibition series.

"I am In a deep quandary; really do not know whether to divulge my secret or keep it buried In the innermost recesses of my bosom. I have Buch horrible dreams; they nearly drive me mad. I see millions of people that depend for their daily bread on Industries (which have been done away with by my Invention) roaming through the streets and alleys, armed with pitchforks, muskets, ice tongs, picks, sabers, bombs, ropes and all kinds of con ceivable weapons; barefooted, clad In rags, disheveled hair, emaciated so that their bones rattle in their frames: accompanied by bloodhounds and curs chanting: 'Show us the man that has robbed us and our children of our daily bread. He is rolling in gold, and we are naked and starving. Show us that man; show him to us" You can imagine how pleasant this is. Don't you ti'ink that It would be the most cruel blow that has ever been Inflicted on a suf-ferin humanity to force upon them a real and everlasting perpetual motion?

Imile, handicap. ma Mg event of the day, the one which is looked forward to by the riders themselves as the decisive and Important race, Is the mile open in which any amateur rider may enter. Judging from the Interest already manifested among the various racers and numberless new wheelmen and wheelwomen the winner of the Decoration Day mile open will be, for the time being a greater or at least a more popular man than the winner at Athens, Governor McKinley or even Mayor MacVlcar. The handicap events and class races will each be interesting and a great many of the racers are talkng of reserving all their strength and energy for some one of these races and then go for all that is in them and beat out the. perhaps faster, men who have entered preceding events. It is the intention of the Y. M. C. A. management to preserve . the whole- someness and honesty of cycle racing from the disrepute into which horse racing has fallen, and to do this they will encourage the best conduct The prizes given will be more than ever In the form of trophies, and, while they will be as Intrinsically valuable as ever, they will not be of the class that may be readily turned into money. Don't "plug" up a hill Just because you are able to do It, when the woman, whose muscled are weaker, and who is probably riding a heavier wheel, is obliged to dismount and walk up. Some men are fond of displaying before women theilr prowess In that direction. She will admire you much more if, instead of waiting at the top of the hill for her, you dismount and assist her up the hill. It is the duty of the men In a party to see that the women get out of the trip as much enjoyment as possible, while at the name time it is incumbent upon the women to trouble the men aa little as they can. In following a narrow path, permit the women to precede you. Bike Clearing at a Olance. Here are a couple of tables, condensed within a small space, which tell more about hike gears at a glance than a long string of explanation. The gearing of the bike is an operation of extreme importance. One of these tables will tell you about the gear and the other will tell you how far a particular gear will carry you, and how many revolutions are necessary to carry you over a mile of Toad. As almost every bicycle Is fitted with a 28-inch wheel, the following table is based on that size of wheel; TO COMPUTE THE GEAR. Teeth in sprocket.
