Bob Alien Tell* Abo-nt the Speediest Pitcher He Ever Faced on the Diamond—A True Story of the and Fall ot "Skinny" Mitchell. Bad Speed to num. Baseball enthusiasts have always differed as to what kind of a pitcher wins the most games for his club—a scientific twirler or one with a great deal of speed and just a little knowledge of the art of twisting iu the snake-like curves. Rusie is a flue example of the latter in the National League, and a ball leaving his hands generally has force enough to go through a brick wall, and no one ever envies his catcher. Breitenstein is one of the class of the first kind, as well as Nichols and Lewis of Boston and Young of Cleveland. All of these men are first-class twlrl- ers, and the argument is still on.

BOB ALLEN. in 1897, had the following to say about a pitcher with speed to burn: "In all my baseball experience I have only seen one man whom I dreaded to go In the batters' box and face. That man," said he, "was not a big league pitcher, either. He pitched for a team in the fastest minor league of that day. It was during the time I played in the old Pennsylvania League that I met him. I was playing with the Shamoktn team. We had about as npeedy a team as has ever been seen in a small town. You can judge what it was from the fact that eight of the fifteen men who played there that year were playing in the big league the next year. Some of them—Chiles, Hallman and myself—are still left. "We had the league beat to death during the flrst half ot the season. The only club anywhere near us was the Hazleton team. They cousd beat anything in the league but us. The Sunbury team was at that time pretty close to the bottom of the list. They had a dinkey team and won about one game in five. "About the middle of the season they surprised us. They went to Ashland on a Monday to play. The game there ended in a row, during which the Sunbury men were all badly used up and could not play the next day at Shamoldn. The Sunbury manager was at his wits' end. He tried every way possible to get a pitcher of some reputation, but failed. At last, in desperation, he consented to give a young fellow named George Mitchell a trial. "Mitchell came from the country near State College. He stood at least six feet two inches in his stocking feet and was so thin he couldn't throw a shadow when he stood in the sun. His arms were the longest I have ever seen on a man. He was a typical product of a farm, partly polished by a residence in the vicinity of a college. He had applied to the Sunbury manager for a trial three weeks before. The manager, thinking to have some fun with him, kept him hanging around. As a last resort he determined to send him to the slaughter. "When the Sunbury team took their positions on the field you could not have gotten a Sunbury rooter to take f 5 worth of the short end of a 100 to 1 the backstby. Not a one of us on the players' bench had seen it from the time it left his hands until it struck. Speed—why, I never saw anything like it. I have batted against Rusle and the other speedy ones since then, but none of them inspired the terror Mitchell did. There was no let-up to the speed during the game. After the first two men had gone to bat he had us scared to death. Seventeen strike-outs were all he got that game. He ought to have had more, but, some of the boys, who kept away back in the box, managed to make dinkey bunts. Not a single hit or anything that looked like it did We get that day. The Sun- burians went wijd. "Well, Mitchell shut us out, pitched the next day at Mount Carmel, and gave them a like dose. Thursday he pitched at Mahanoy City, and, after winning the game, eased up to save his arm, and allowed them to score. Friday he pitched against Shenandoah and defeated them easily. Saturday the team went to Hazleton. For six innings he held the team there powerless and then his arm tired. At that time the score was 6 to 1 in favor of Sunbury. The latter lost the game after Mitchell quit. Sunbury gave him the largest salary paid during the remainder of the season. He pitched every game against us. We won only one game that he pitched, and then he complained of being sick before the game started. "Only one other team won a game that he pitched that season, and that was a rank steal. The 'skinny boy,' as we called him, had his revenge. He beat us out of the championship, his victorias enabling Hazleton to finish one game ahead. He was the speediest man I ever saw. He had everybody in the league scared. To be hit by him meant a siege in the hospital, at least, If nothing worse. When I went to Philadelphia I persuaded the management to sign him. He only pitched one game there. It was creditable, but he did not stand in with the 'ring' and they downed htm. "Upon being released he went to Minneapolis and pitched the team Into the Western League pennant. At the close of the season he disappeared and has not been heard from on a ball field since." and Otherwise. From the San Francisco Argonaut. Dr. B. A. Gould, the American astronomer, -while a student at Berlin, was beardless, but had a good head of hair. When he returned some years later he had become bald, but had made up for it by having a full, long beard. He entered the study of Arge- lahders, the fnmous observational hstronomer under whom he had studied, witbout being announced. At first the professor did not recognize lira.

It seems tha an officer in one of the Tennessee com pnnies, a very sliy young man, brough letters with'him when his regimen came to the coast, and presented him self one evening at the (let us say) Van Ness avenue residence. As he was th son of a well-known public man and member of an old family, his hostes exerted herself to entertnin him. "W (should be glad to have the pleasure of j'our company Friday at dinner," she laid as he was leaving; "the Hawaiian commissioners nre to be with us." Friday came and the commission. Shortly before the hour for dinner the butler excitedly entered ^the room. "They's a rejriment o' soldiers, mum, utside." "No doubt in honor of the omtnissioners; 1 will tell them." Just ;hen the lieutenant was announced. "When you are ready," he said, "I will have the men itlarch to their places in ' formation." "Why," said the lady, "what men?" "It's my company," was the reply, "all but ten, and they're very sorry, but they couldn't come." A New Immortal. Teacher—Now, children, what can you tell me about the immortal George?

The developments of the game were startling. The skinny kid, as we instantly dubbed the new pitcher, showed but little speed while warming up and we were all figuring up the amount we were going to increase our batting averages that afternoon. When the game started what a change there was! Tommy Dwyer, the first man up, could hit every pitcher in the ler-gue. He walked In the batter's fc"?: and the umpire called play. "We saw Mitchell draw his arm back and then saw him bend forward. Then next thing we heard the ball felt ED. J. BOYLE, ager Watkins, and remained idle all season. Edward Boyle was born May 8, 1874, at Cincinnati, 0, and, like many other noted players who hailed from that city, learned to play ball with the amateur teams on the open lots. It was under the tutorship of his brother John that he flrst donned the mask, and coming from a ball-playing family, he was soon well able to keep up the reputation gained by the other members. Boyle can thank Ted Sullivan, the hustling little manager, who is a great believer in young players, for his flrst professional engagement. Sullivan was in 1894 the manager of the Atlanta team, of the Southern Association, and during the spring visited Cincinnati in quest of the material for the make-up of his nine. Boyle was one of a number of players signed, and after joining his team his progress was very pronounced; he soon gave evidence of becoming a great catcher. Boyle played with Atlanta until that club disbanded during the summer months, when he joined the Sioux City Club, of the Western League, and helped his team to win the pennant of that organization. When the St. Paul Club was admitted to membership in the Western League, Boyle, with other players of the Sioux City Club, was assigned to Manager Comiskey's St. Paul Club. Accidents handicapped him in 1896 and during the season of 1897. This Is his second experience with the Pittsburg Club, which drafted him from the St. Paul Club in 1896. He was purchased by the Cincinnati Club before the season of 1897 began, from which club the Minneapolis Club secured him. y^^jS^^^a^gieSf^ Heroes of the fcfiu & War-with'Spain thousands of them, are suffering From lingering div eases induced by life in poisonous southern camps, the result of changes of climate, or o9 imperfect nutrition caused by improper and badly cooked food.
