In* DlHcnrdfid Mitny of llln Antonlrtlilng Trlck» lIucniiHO TlieyAro So Simple— The Jlcnt TrlckH ICcsult from Accl- dciitll. HERE Is, perhaps, j -not a man l:i the show business who has less ol 1 the meretricious mtthodn of the showman than Henry Kellar. the •magician. Fie looks like.a sharp man of business, and when he signs a hotel register it In plain, "Henry Kellar and wife, Erie. Pa." Erie is his home, was his birthplace, and he sticks to it like the smell of fresh paint to a tightly closed room. Talking about the tricks of the magician;) he said: "It Is often that the beat results come through accident, and I will give you an example. When I was with the Davenport Brothers, and they were doing their great dark seance, it was the habit to have those In the front row Join hands, putatlvely to give concentrated thought to tho worker, but really to prevent any of the Hlceptics getting on the stage. Then they were tied and their feet Incascr] in slippers placed on to, piece of white paper, with pencil marks to show If the feet stirred. It was easy to slip out of these slippers, but one night Ira was careless and got too near the front row and .a skeptic grabbed him by the coat, at the same time shouting that ho had caught tho medium. This meant defeat for Ira, but lie was on the alert and had to think quickly, as does every successful magician. He slipped out of his coat and tack to his place, called for a light and then showed he could not have moved, as his feet were still apparently tied, and his feet were In the same place. He told the man with tho coat that the spirit had taken his coat oft and that was the way It came so near the front. The trick made a great sensation and after that he always had U« coat taken off. and Just as he shout- ted for lights would .kick It In the air, so everybody would see It falling. Why, I had "a turn of this same kind myself. .1 passed the cards out to the audience one night and when they came back there was one less than when I gave them out. I was not certain where that card was when I was to make them oajne up out of the box. In an Instant HEXRT KELLAR. It occurred to me that it would be a thing to have the appearance of VIGOR " MEN Eully, Quickly, Permanently Bettered.

Bock, and proofs moiled (sealed) free. the card stop ana the spirits reruse 10 £o on, as one card was out of the pack. It created a Rreat sensation. It there Is one thing n magician must have above all othera It Is quick wit, an ability to read human miture and to take advantage o£ every circumstance, nnd he can often this way turn 'defeat Into success. It Is not the most thoughtful work that occasions the greatest surprise. The people go to a display of magic prepared to sec strange things, and you cannot surprise them, and for this reason tricks that have reauired an enormous outlay of money and hours of thought fall flat. My greatest trick? That is not as easy to tell, although the one that created the greatest amount of wonder happened up in Ko- nosha, Wls., and was a simple one. I wan not very prosperous then; In fact, had seen all my stuff seized by the sheriff and had to hastily construct some apparatus to do my tricks with, and this apparatus was crude enough. I could not got the boxes to shoot the ring In—you know the trick—and had to resort to common envelopes, and I hit on the scheme of writing- a lot of names on. the envelopes and Inclosed the ring In the last. It was done, and the envelopes, which were graduated In size, traveled around the audience un- itll tho last one had been reached. I had obtained the names of the people 'from the doorkeeper and did not know ti sln- g-le one. When the last one was reached I saw that It was in the hands of the lady who had loaned me the rlnpr, and, as If the thing had all been arranged, I Bald: 'Miss Woodward will find her ring In the envelope.' "Surprised? They were more than that. They were domfounded and still believe up there that I must have been In league with his satanic majesty, as ,they could not think such a well known; lady as she was would be In combination with a traveling magician. It was nil accident, as I had no Idea who would lend me that ring when the names on the envelopes were written. "Yes, I have been In tho business a long time, thirty-three years, and made my first appearance with 'the Fakir of Ava,' Harris Hushes. Some of the tricks I have done are really so simple that I have stopped doing them; it seems too much like fooling tho audience and playing on Its Ignorance, but then the American public likes to be bluffed, you know." Western Association Statistics. This year the Western association teams will travel 40,585 miles. Last year they traveled 35,387 miles. The additional 6,198 miles Is added on account o£ Rockford. The mileage of the teams for tho season of 1SD5, If no changes are made, will be as follows: Omaha, 5,036; Lincoln. 5,082; St. Joseph, 5,419; Des •Molnen, 4,763; Qulncy, 5,122; Rockford, B,!97. This year's schedule has the merit, however, of apportioning the expense* more equally among the clubs than last year's schedule. ' Sketch ot Jamt-8 J. Callnhan of tlio I Philadelphia Clab—ChiulH-ick'n Narrow I Escapi)—AIJIIOB Not a Kicker—A Game ! oi Tickle. AMES J. CALLA- han, the promising young 1 pitcher, who was given a trial last season by Manager Arthur Ir- wln, of the Philadelphia Club, has a very bright future before him in his adopted profession, _ and, with . proper care-, should develop into one of the crack pitchers of the major league In the near future. He was born March 18, 1874, at Fttchburg, Mass., and learned to play ball with amateur teams of his native place, at such times as he could get away from his work, which was that of plumbing, he having practiced pitching after working hours, and made such headway that he finally strange to say, adopted baseball as a more suitable occupation than that of plumbing. While connected with the Pepperell (Mass.) amateur team, In 1S91, Callahan was credited with winning twenty-eight games, losing one, and having two ties, out of thirty-one games played. He also claims to have struck out twenty-two batsmen in one of those games, pitching under the old rules. His professional career began with the Northampton (Mass.) team, In 1SD2. It was his excellent work while with that club that led to his engagement with the New Bedfords, an Independent professional team located at New Bedford, Mass., during tho season of 1SS3, and It was while connected with tho latter club that Manager Irwir.'s attention was drawn to his work. Callahan played the season of 1894 with the Philadelphia team. He has excellent speed, good command of the ball, and Is cool headed at critical stages of the game. He Is also a good batsman and clever base runner. * * * Whether or not a base runner can rim or be thrown out by the catcher on a foul tip, which under the revised rules counts as a strike is a matter for President Young to decide before the championship season opens. Rival captains have already begun to wrangle over this rule, which needs official Interpretation at once, though It seems that if a foul tip Is to count as a strike then Its meaning Is plain enough, as it surely cannot be a foul ball. Chief of "Umpires Harry Wright has decided that the runner must hold his base in case of a foul tip caught by the catcher within the ten-foot line. That is a rational way out of the difficulty, but there will bo some grumbling by runners Who get a good start just as the tip is made. That Mr, Wright's decree Is not generally acceptable Is shown by "Hope Spring* Eternal," Etc. | The Cleveland Leader Is In an unusually hopeful mood this spring, and is trying to Impart the same cheerful spirit to the rather cold enthusiasts of the Forest City. Its most recent observance as to the West's chances Is to this effect: "The western teams, concerning which so many of the eastern magnates have much to say, may surprise a few people this year. The East Is going up against a hard game If the cards have been shuffled for freeze-out. There are others who have filled a "bobtail straight." It may seem early to go on record with a prediction, but subsequent developments will prove Its accuracy." It Is to be hoped that Brother Foster Is basing his hopes and predictions upon something more substantial than the southern trip showing, And yet, what other ground for hope can we have?— Sporting Lifo, Forty of the Galesburg stakes have filled, with a total entry list aggregating SOO.

J, CALLAHAN. the fact that President Hart, of Chicago, has wired an objection to Mr. Wright's Interpretation, and Insists that the play shall operate In every way as a mere strike, A prompt ruling one way or the other, binding on everybody, is therefore in order from President Young. • * • The veteran Henry Chadwick recently had a narrow escape from death. He was thrown out of his wagon, but lucidly fell into a ditch, thus saving broken bones. The veteran stood the shock well, which Is remarkable considering his advanced age. * * • ' Anson has a record of being the greatest "kicker" in the profession. He doesn't deserve It. Anson does "kick" frequently, but he never stoops to billingsgate or abuse while so engaged, and he seldom raises a point of objec- tion'Without a reason to base it on. * * • O. P. Caylor, in one of his letters, classed Cincinnati as a hopeful dark horse In the League pennant race, whereupon a Cincinnati paper classed O. P. C. as one of the greatest base ball authorities In the country. You tickle me and I'll tickle you. • • * Captain Anson had no man on his team sent from the diamond by the umpire last year, though there were 20 of such culprits in the League. He never lets one of his privates share the luxury of a "kick" with him. That is his exclusive privilege. T. E. S. CRICKET.

Th» Impersonator of \Veury "little Chrlstopbor." John W. Wilson, whose grotesnuerles as Weary Haggles, the Midway Plals- ance tramp of "Little Christopher," has brought him Into prominence and poou- larity, Is a genuinely comic performer. He was born In Smtor Creek, Amador county, Cal., March 7, 1S6-1. At the age of fifteen he made his first appearance at the Bella Union, San Francisco, then under the management of Tetlow & gkentlebury. His partner was Mitchell Ford, and under the name of Wilson and Ford they were billed as "a pocket edition of Johnson and Bruno," In songs and dances. They separated early in 1881, and a. few months later Wilson doubled up with William Cameron. For the next eleven years the song and dance team of Wilson and Cameron was well known throughout the country. They opened for Ned Buckley at the Adelphi, San Francisco, playing there an entire year, ajd changing their act every week. They were engaged for two weeks with Billy Emerson's minstrels at the. Standard theatre, and remained two years and a half; then followed a long and popular engagement with Charley Heed's minstrels at the same house. Their first appearance in white face was in 18S5, at the old California theatre, then under the direction of E. D. Price, who is business manager of the company in which Wilson is now performing, says tho New York Clipper. They appeared as the two Parisian street gamins In an eccentric dance in "The Pavements of Paris," for Infants and Children.

After that season Wilson and Cameron joined Haverley'a minstrels, In black face, and subsequently took their own minstrel company through California. In 1SS7 they went to the Antipodes with tne All Star Specialty company, under the management of Frank Clark, and played all through Australia and New Zealand, returning to San Francisco in 1890. They came oast for the first time with Weber and Field's Own company, and played at the principal vaudeville houses. Mr, Wilson dissolved partnership with Cameron in the latter part of 1S91, and played the janitor in John Russell's "City Directory" with much success. He next Impersonated a tramp in "McCarthy's Mishaps," where he was seen by Manager Edward E. Rice and engaged for "Little Christopher," produced at the Garden theatre In October last, and still the current attraction. Mr.Wllson's tramp Is a thoroughly original and humorous creation, with a nimble wit and grotesaue personality. In this specialty Mr. Wilson has capital assistance from Bertha Waring, a dainty little singer and dancer, who ap- ' pears as an Irish villager. ATHLETIC.
