This desirable change has been anticipated fjpr months and its consummation com- 'jpletes the happiness of the local en- 1|9|husiasts, who have been loyal to the ; '";j|5ame in the darkest days at Sports- .f-man's Park. The coming of the Cleve- ||Ja.nds has effaced the disagreeable " lemories of successive seasons of defeat and humiliation and whetted the |appetites of the followers of the na- |||f|tional game for the real article of ball r|l||with which they will be regaled in p||lS99.

President Robi|on will make this city his home and jive his attention to the club's busi- iess interests, the management of the Ball Bearings 1>I<1 It. Bicycles were invented centuries ago, but it required the magic touch of tho Nineteenth century inventor to make the "wheel" a most useful vehicle, instead of a mere toy. Ball bearings did it. It was a case where the improvement has proved greater than the original invention. The principle that reduces friction to a minimum in a bicycle is applicable to all machinery, and the cost is the only obstacle in the way of what will be known in history as the "Light Draft Era" in mechanics. Millions of dollars have been spent in this direction. The Deering Harvester Company, of Chicago, solved the problem, as far as ;;rain binders ai:d mowers are concerned, by equipping their machines with roller arid ball bearings in 1891. Other manufacturers in this line have since followed with several kinds of experimental. roller bearings, but the Deering machines are still alone in the field with ball bearings of the bicycle pattern. The Deering Company's annual catalogue for 1899 contains some very interesting historical matter on this subject, fully illustrated. Tho book also describes the largest factory in America and gives the latest news on the subject or harvesting machinery.. Send for one; it's free.

While Griffin was interviewed somebody brought up the fact that the Brooldyns and Baltimores were scheduled to wind up the season together and suggested if the championship for Brooklyn depended on that series the orioles might throw the games. "Don't you believe it," said Griffin. "The ballplayers are more honest than some other people connected with baseball." "But here are a number of men gathered from every part of the country to represent a strange city. What interest do they have in upholding that city?" persisted the first speaker. "Professional pride," said Griffin, with emphasis. "There is an effort to excel among ball players the same as in every other profession and the spirit of loyalty to the people they represent always predominates ic every game. Past associations are forgotten as soon as the umpire calls 'play' and the rivalry that exists between the cranks of the different cities is uppermost in the minds of every player and IIP makes their fight his fight. That is what has made baseball so successful, and has made it the na tional game." Hiird on the FlnRtirg. Harry Vaughn has a pair of hands that are about the worst battered up of any in the Cincinnati team. He car vividly recall the breaks at Lebanon, O., and Louisville, which netted bin? two of the souvenirs of diamond warfare that he will carry with him to the end of life. "Prank Flint and Charley Bennett," remarked Manager Ewing, "possessed the greatest collection of. crooked fingers of any players in the business. For a catcher who did as much work behind the bat as I have done, I fared pretty well. This is the only real bad finger I have," and ho displayed the third on his right hand. "I remember the accident that gave me that. I was catching Mickey Welsh at Philadelphia, and he sent up a measly slow ball to Joe Mulvey. That quaker smashed away, and after his foul tip got away I discovered that crooked finger of mine broken squarely Catchers of the old time who were inclined to fight the ball had their fingers stove up more than the modern backstops." Downfall of Brush. From Philadelphia Inquirer: The downfall of John T. Brush as a power in base ball legislation will not elicit the slightest expression of regret from anyone familiar with the game, excepting perhaps those who for personal reasons have tied to him. He retires unhonored, unwept, unsung. His active connection with the game began with the collapse of the Union Association movement, when he secured the cream of the St. Louis Maroons after that ill- fated organization disbanded, and ever since then he has blighted everything with which he has come in contact in a base ball way. He was the prime mover in the Indianapolis amalgamation, which has brought baseball to its present demoralized condltion.and he was the engineer of the scheme which had for its object the dismemberment of the Western League, and the apportionment of the territory among the members of the board of arbitration and their personal friends.

General Manager Underwood of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad has issued the following general notice to station agents and trainmen: "Your especial attention is directed to the treatment of patrons by employes of the company. Complaints have been made from various sources of discourtesy to freight and passenger patrons on the part of our agents, or their representatives, at several of our stations, and nlco inattention of conductors and brakemen to properly care for the comfort of passengers. There should be no cause for such complaints. It is a part of your duty to see that our patrons are treated at all times with politeness and courtesy, not only by yourself but by employes under your charge. One of the valuable assets of a railroad company is uniform politeness and courtesy from all of its employes to its patrons, and this capital must not be encroached upon. It is proper for you to understand that advancement does not depend wholly on your efficiency, but in other directions also, and v/ill be measured in a great degree by the treatment nnonrclpd to nntrons."
