Billy Sullivan, catcher for the Chicago Americans, is .suffering from blood poisoning, as the result of a wound in-I flicicd in his toft foot by a rusty I nail. Sullivan's condition is said to be serious. He stepped on the nail while coming from the grounds at Chutes park after the game with Vernon, last Saturday. He was taken to his home at the Elks' club, where he now lies delerious from fever.,. that would pull down the coin on the dime museum circuit, as he has the regulation number of arms and legs and isn't thin enough to carry his salary at the human skeleton's job nor fat enough to hit three hundred as the prize fat boy1. Freine isn't, that kind of a freak. To the casual observer he is nothing more or less than an ordinary human being, but, just the same, nature must have got mixed in her signals when she turned out Freine. I dont' know why it is, but nature seems to have contracted the habit of turning out specimens of humanity with only one useful upper limb, the other one merely being hung on the off side of the human frame for the purpose of symmetry and as a sort of accessory to the useful arm in such emergencies as hugging a girl ou the parlor sofa, et cetera. Attell and Driscoll. San Francisco. Cal., March 16. Promoter Coffroth recently signed AJbe Attell and Jem Driscoll, of England, to fight twentyfive rounds at Colma, on July 2.

Tom Haley, of Detroit, was the sensation of the closing clay of tlio tenth animal tournament of the American Howling Congress when he rolled the remarkable score of 705 in the individual event, winning that event and setting a new. tournament record. He also won the prize for the best total of nine games with 1.9G1, which is another new American bowling congress record. Haley's great series came in the afternoon alter practically everyone had become reconciled to the almost certain' victory of Wiliiam Richter, of Chicago, with (',92. He opened Come and See Them. You'll surely say they are a good $4 worth and quality of material backs up the looks. Notice the clever style of cut and fit and think of the price, only $2.98.

Otis Clymer, the former Pirate, is reported to have joined the Minneapolis hold-outs. He sent word that he wanted more money.

George leidy, manager of the San Antonio club, claims credit for df veloping Ty Cobb. He was first to give the Georiga peach a professional job.

When he got ready to go out and stab the world In the face as a baseball player he couldn't decide wheiher to be a southpaw or a right-hander, so he sijlit the dift-i erence and became both. Many ball tossersthave tried to de-vriloti this ambidextrous ar. but they have never succeeded with any :great degree of success. Whatever degree of dexterity they have ac-miired with the unhandy flu. they have always remained specialists with that whip that nature intended them to use.

The San Jose team ,of the California State league, then an outlaw organization, lost no time in grabbing up this two-handed pitcher, and for'ifour years Freine dinhed up his two-handed curves for San Jose. He was nabbed from the outlaw organization for Connie Mack's White.

We give the matter the personal attention we feel a customer is entitled to, and see to it that his garment reflects the individuality and exclusiveness of style upon which we built our reputation as expert tailors.
