"Pats and Knocks," In Portland I'ress. We are forced to the conclusion either that the gustatory education of "Pats and Knocks" has been sadly neglected or that his failure to appreciate certain viand is a sort of birthmark that might be easily eradicated. Not content with giving voice to his contempt for hornpout as a food-fish, he now insinuates a dislike for fried salt pork. It must be that the kind he has tried to eat, if he ever tried, wasn't fried right, otherwise he could not maintain such an attitude toward one of the main standbys of every camping outfit.

SIBLEY. fGIobe Staff Man With Massachusetts Troops on the Border.) EL PASO, Aug 28 The Military League's baseball season opened today on the border, with two seven-innimr games in Rio Grand Park before a ; small crowd. Massachusetts teams played and won in both games. The field artillery nine. most of which comes from Battery A, i beat the 23d Regular Infantry by the ; .'hocking score of 24 to 2. In one in- ning, the whole artillery nine came to : bat twice, and three men on the third round, making 11 hits for a total of IT bases. The infantry used 19 men in their lineup before the game was finished. The 9th Tnfantry won its game against the 8th Regular Cavalry, 10 to 2, though if the catcher of the Cavalrymen hadn't suddenly taken to muffing them the game might have been far closer. He dropped two third strikes, end had passed ballh enough to add several runs to the Bay State team's score None of the Massachusetts outfits play again until Friday. Inspections and Tests Begin Inspections of the Massachusetts units began today, Maj Whitney's battalion of the 5th going to the Mesa this morn tog for a test by Regular Army officers on company tactics and Maj Meredith's battalion spreading out its equipment on the plain behind Camp Cotton. This afternoon two other battalions underwent the same examination. But for the fact that the 9th is still on outpost, the examinations would be completed Friday at noon; as it is they will go over into next week. Tent inspection has already started, and to Corp E. G. Malone of G Company in the 9th belongs the credit of having the model tent in his regiment. The inspecting officers brought parties of men from other companies to look at Ma-lone's methods. , Regimental supply sergeant Charles Vogel ot the supply company ntxa kc.. reduced to the ranks at his own request. Waggoner William Jordan of A Company has been transferred to the supply company and made supply sergeant. Ninth's Orderlies Learn to Ride I The 9th's mounted orderlies, having i received their horses yesterday, went out for their first lessons in equitation this morning, under Capt Thomas F. Murphy, the regimental adjutant, who under the new orners uao w k jjust like anybody else. rrv,n vtc narffirmpfl verv crenltaoiv. and though some of the horses fall far short of beauty, they proved for the most part verv intelligent and apt at learning what was required of them. The orderlies stayed out three hours, though four of them are on the ball team which had a game scheduled for the afternoon. After drill the orderlies put up their horses, but went straight at some more work signal drill this time. . , ,. ,, The dust problem has been fairly well settled in Camp Cotton, for besides oiling the ground, the commanders have secured hundreds of loads of cinders and with them maae roans wmcu nu.u the dust down far better than the dobe does Now, both the 5th and 8th have di awn watering carts, and there will be no more dust. The flv problem isn't so easy. The soldiers have fought them with fly traps and screens, with scrupulous camp policing and the utmost care. Still they increase, in the face of the fight against them. Peabody Men Made Happy Every man in Co H of the 8th who lives in Peabody has received a check for $6, the gift of the people of the town, who have also sent a big box of gifts, toilet articles, reading matter and so forth. . . Sergt George C. Donaldson of the same company got a letter from his father. While his friends from Peabody were crowing over their luck. Donaldson, who conies from Hamilton, learned that Chairman George Gidney of the Hamilton Board of Selectmen has requested that he give up his commission as justice of the peace so that the town may have another one appointed. Maj Campbell's battalion of the 8th vas the outfit to go to the mesa this afternoon. Capt Thomas J. Cobey of Lynn was commander of the guard today, his company and Co G taking over the duty. Yesterday the Lynn boys opened their new mesa house with a Dig dinner, some special decorations being the chief features. The Massachusetts cavalry is the first of our outfits to reach actual maneuvers, un'ess one counts the 20-mile hike on which the field hospital started this morning, each man aoing nis own coon-i ing.

The organizing committee of Grocery and Provision Clerks' Union. 1913, reported last night that its efforts to or-t-jnize all the stores in Greater Boston, before the new wage scale is presented, are meeting with much success. SHUBERT OPENS WITH GIRL AND MUSIC SHOW The Shubert Theatre, newly and artistically decorated, was reopened last evening with the first presentation here of "Katinka," a musical play that has the distinction of being one of the very few "New York successes" of recent seasons that has fulfilled the promises of advance enconiums. "Katinka" is a musical comedy of genuine operaUc quality, delightfully entertaining in story, music and manner of interpretation, and surpassingly beautiful in pictorial adornment. A better balanced production has not been revealed on the local stage for many a day. Rarely have the efforts of composer and librettist produced more harmonious results; thee is coherence and consistency in the plot the sentiment, romance and comedy are correctly proportioned and the musical setting is always appropriate and illuminative. Last evening's audience was most emphatic in expressing approval. There was no mistaking the spontaneous sincerity of the applause. "Katinka" will surely be remembered as one of the treats of the theatrical year. The performance is worthy of the production, and to say this is, indeed, bestowing high praise. The producer, Arthur Hammerstein, has been very-fortunate in the selection of his principals and also in securing a chorus that can sing and dance as well as please the eye. All contribute to the pleasure of the superbly balanced performance. The chief comedy role is played by T. Roy Barnes in a delightfully amusing way. His fun-making methods are sanely artistic. He is a welcome relief from the operatic buffoon. Miss Ada Meade Is captivating as the Mrs Hopper, who believes she has been betrayed by her husband. The wholesome, magnetic charm of her personality is irresistible. Miss Audrey Maple, very blond and delicate, gives a pleasingly ingenuous impersonation of the heroine and sings her several numbers, not forgetting the "Racketty Coo," with gratifying effect. David Reese has an excellent tenor voice and last evening quickly won the favor of his audience. Burke Sullivan's rich and mellow baritone was heard with pleasure and Miss Renee Noel also afforded pleasure in her one solo. One of the cleverest and most amusing features of the performance was Mr Robbins' imitations of various musical instruments in his specialty, "The Walking Music Store." He fairly con-vulBed the audience. The graceful dancing by May Thompson and Walter Manthey also pleased immenselv. There were clever bits of characterization by -Mr Sackett, Miss Mendoza, Mr Gorcey, Air Moore. Mr Heck and half a dozen others. The large orchestra was eon-ducted with skill and discretion bv Mr Stothart. SHOWS CONTINUING "The Amber Empress" began the second week of its engagement at the Colonial Theatre last evening. "Very Good Eddie" started on its third week at the Wilbur Theatre last evening. PICTURES AND VAUDEVILLE At the Majestic Theatre the photoplay.

BODY FOUND BESIDE TRACKS Marino Tarenzie of 71 Charter St. Boston, Killed by Train at Canton During Night CANTON, Aug 29 The body of Marino Tarenzie of 71 Charter st, Boston, was found beside the tracks at the viaduct railroad bridge about 5 o'clock this morning. A peculiar incident in the finding of the body is being investigated by Chief John H. Flood of the Canton police. The man was first seen bv the crew of a passing freight traih.

And Mildred is indeed good-pretty of face, lithe and graceful of form, and nimble of foot, all told, a credit to the place she comes from. Miss Macomber heads the bill atKeith's this week in a sensational dancing spectacle. A "sensation" is the way it Is spoken of on the bill, and, in a measure, it is. But, better, it is rarelv, absorbingly beautiful; full of clever pantomime, full of novelty, full and full to the brim of capable dancers and shapely young women. And it is more than a mere grouping t smart dances that Miss Macomber has produced. It is a dance-story a romantic dream-story of a man, "the morning after" a morning, which, though having begun with wine, dawns Var from cold and gray and a girl who comes out to romp with the fairies. Miss Macomber, the Suss girls Doris a.id Gladys and Willard Foote, aided by the large company of diving girls, etc, and the sprightly music by Bart Grady Bart hails from Simerville, doesn't he? make this Greater Boston productionconceived, written, produced and "backed" here a notable one. Yet there are other numbers among the week's offerings which are not inferior to it, among them that "pennant-winning battery of songland," Gus Van and Joe Schenck. whose delightful rendition of "rags," ballads and what not. provoked unquestionably the greatest volume of applause of the afternoon. There wasn't a weak spot in their act! And this is also true of Aveling and Lloyd, whose smart handling of a truly brilliant piece of patter talk written by poned from Aug 10, is being held at Beacon Park, Webster Lake, today. Auto trucks conveyed 175 residents of the hill to the grounds this morning, where a program of sports was held, followed by a basket lunch.

Garland, 693 Pleasant st, during the Storm yesterday. A bolt struck a pear J tree in the yard, knocking down Mri Garland, who stood within about 10 feet ' of the tree, but not injuring him. The bolt ran down the tree into the ground, then ran up a grape trellis of l-tnch pipe, which stood near, and after playing around that ran into the ground again. There it struck a water pipe, which it followed for 25 feet, up through the sink into Mr Garland s house. As it plowed along it threw the Jdlrt up so violently that it filled the hair and covered the clothes of several young children of Mr Garland and neighbors, who were stand ing near, but did not injure them. It tore up the sink considerably and then appeared to pass out of the window.
