Then followed two failures, one In Heaumarchals' comedy, "Le •Marluge do Figaro," and the other in a French adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice." Before leav- 1ns the Odeon, however, she partly reestablished herself In favor by her portrayal oC the heroine in "Amoreuse." In 1S90 Mmc.

Mere, also, In the same year she appeared for the first time In "Ma Couslne," and In the following season she was seen In revivals of some of the plays In which she had been most successful. She became In 1892 the star of the Grand theater, following- the fortunes ot Paul Porel, who had relinquished the management oC the Odeon, to assume command of this house, and who became the director of Rejanc's fortunes by making her his iwlfe.

The umpires are now compelled to fine ME JIFJANF the P'^xcrs for certain offenses, and If they 1 _"" don't do so they are liable to be fined celebrated Frt-nch thcmselvc .

Now a player knows what to expect If he kicks senselessly or uses vile language. The penalties are down in the rules In black and white, and it cannot Ice said that an umpire Is too severe If he Inflicts lines or rules men of the field. Ten years ago there was Just as much Interest and excitement over baseball as there is now. But there nevev was SO much trouble with the umpires. Then it was the custom to pick a man from the spectators to officiate. In that way nobody knew before the game who would umpire. If fault wa» found with the Judge of play ho generally left the field, and ns It was a most difficult thing to find a successor, the crowd soon learned how to use umpires. In the present time umpires have an obstacle to face In spectators who revile them and use abusive language, from the stands. The rules distinctly slate an umpire has the privilege of expfilllng any person from the grounds who thus misbehaves himself. If umpires would see to It that the rule is enforced as much as possible, I am sure there would be less trouble. Time and again I have heard spectators use the filthiest language to umpires, but as It has been very hard to locate them, the umpires have had to grin and bear It. But If the homo club officials would make a business of singling out such persons and Informing umpires where they were, ' there would be a pronounced reform, j I do not know whether Hurst will be [ reappolntod or not. He Is an excellent j umpire, there's no doubt about that, j If the matter has been left entirely to President Yong. I think possibly Hurst may officiate again, as I know he stands very high In Mr. Young's estimation. There is considerable truth in the rumor about league affairs. I think myself that a. split Is coming, for the western clubs are undeniably weak financially. The only stumbling block to the formation of an eastern arid western league Is Chicago. I believe that all of the old leajrue men would 'Ike to retain an eight-club circuit, such wr'existed in 1SS9." C. W. COULDOCK. Couldock was born In London'April 26, 1815. He first appeared at Sadler's Wells In 183C, where he played "Othello." After that he supported John Vaudenhort at Bath and In 1845 he became leading man at the Theater Royal at Edinburgh. He came to America with Charlotte Cushman in 3S49 and for several years was leading man at the Walnut Street theater, Philadelphia. In 1S3S he joined Laura Xeene's Olympic Theater company and afterward took the leading parts in "The Willow Copse," "The Chimney Corner," etc. In 18SO he began at the Madison Square theater in the part of Dunstan Kirko In "Hazel Kirke" and has played the part over one thousand times.

Bunt hits will be done away with altogether In another year, in line with the policy of the league to make every man play ball and not see how much he can gnin by avoiding playing ball. In the same way the rule as .to coaching will gradually work around so that every man will play for himself. The rule doing away with coaching altogether probably will not be adopted next year, but the tendency is that way.—Sporting Life. i The Pluyer nrd tlio 15:it.

BRAND NEW gam'e Is "battle•ball," and as it embraces at once some of the features of bowling, hand ball, tennis.cricket, baseball and football, there is no doubt but that it will speedily become one of the popular games of the day, particularly as It can be played- in the gymnasium, or out of doors. We owe the invention to Dr. Sargent of Harvard university, whose life is devoted to devising and prescribing exercises for the physical education of young people. Dr. Sargent concluded there was need for a new athletic or gymnastic game, and forthwith he invented one which as he said, in his little pamphlet, describing the game, should be so simple that any one can play It without long training or previous practice. The game Is played on a court somewhat similar to tennis. A court with a length twice its width makes it an exact square for each side 25x50 feet having been found to give the amount of space most desirable for teams of five on a side. While the game may be played by three, four, six, or even more, five Is the ideal number for each side. The lines should be marked on the floor or ground, ns shown in the diagram. There is a center foul line and the end foul, base or goal lines; the border beyond represents the stop nets, which may be set five feet behind the goal lines. Ovei' the goal llnpK and seven feet above them cords should be stretched from posts set at the corners of the court. On each goal line plncod three pairs of. Indian clubs of three pounds weight each, one pair In th.e center and the others three (gp.t from the posts, the clubs of each pair being eighteen Inches apart. With teams of five, the three stationed in . front of the clu'DS, serve as guards, or goal tenders, while the forwards act mainly as throwers. When the game is ' played out of doors, and a larger num- j ber than usually make a team wish '• to play, several courts can b« laid out,^ side by side, the right side line of one' answering for the left side line of .another. Wands, or sticks, projecting three feet above the ground, may take the place Of the Indian clubs. A round rubber ball, filled wllh air and covered with leather, nine inches in diameter, and weighing about a pound, completes the outfit. The best throwers must stand in front, and the best catchers guard the goals. The side having the ball, which may be decided by the toss of a coin, tries to throw it between the goal posts of the other side. If it succeeds in doing so, ten points are scored in its favor; CASTORIA ?SSX! for Infants and Children.

Brown is a pioneer resident of David City, having lived there for twenty years. He is -well known all over Butler County, .having practiced medicine in every part. It is liis recovery from a very serious niscanc that is looked upon as a miracle. "\Vlien visited by n Call reporter Dr. Brown gladly related the history of his sickness and Lis fiuul cure. " This will be my first step into the field of a personal interview, but I am so enthusiastic over my recovery that I feel like conducting a regular experience meeting. "bix or seven years ago partial paralysis set in upon my left side, and I soon became affected by kindred ailments. The pension board found my trouble to be " partial paralysis of left side, varicose veins of both legs, undileft vuricocele." I was also troubled with Diabetes. I became anablc to •perform manual labor, having to give up tlie larger port of my practice. I could bobble around by the use of crutches and cane. I tried every medicine that 1 ever heard ofin endeavoring to r:licve my suffering. " About a year ago I read of » mcdicins called Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills, that seemed to fit my case, so I sent for samples. I waa no well satisfied with the samples that I sent for more, (is thev acted directly in harmony with nature. Those are the things I look for • in treating diseases. I used a number of boxes of the pills, and T nm now entirelv relieved of nil my several ailments, and am able to move about" once more, without being hampered •with crippling diseases. In my practice I always use Pink Pills.where the diagnosis of the case favors them. * " I now have a remarkable case at Brain- crd. Augustus Talbot, the postmaster, was suffering from diabete and insipidness, and was in the first itajes of Bright's disease. The doctors had failed to £ive him any relief. All hope of his recovery had been given up when 1 was called in and took charge of the case. He is now on the road to complete re- coverv. The Bright's disease was headed off, and the other ailments overwhelmed. A happier family cannot be found than that of Postmaster Talbot, of Brainerd."

If a thrower, slips over the center foul line, two points are ' counted against his sicle,^ Two ten minute innings, with a five minutes' rest between, makes a short, sharp and exciting game. An interesting feature of the game Is the frequency with which the score is changed, first one side and then the other being ahead, which, with well matched teams, leaves the fina! result uncertain until the last moment of play j has expired. j The game of battle ball, Dr. Sargent j argues; gives special exercise to the | muscles of the back, chest, waist and ! left arm, as well as the right arm, and it is free from danger of any kind that would be hazardous to life or limb; and another argument in Its favor. It is also a game suitable for girls as well asr boys. ; At the Center College gymnasium, Nashville, Ky., in the standing hop, skip and jump, Thomas A. Hendrlcks of Kentucky covered 30 feet 4 Inches.
