DOWD, 'the hard hitting aiid speedy outfielder of the St. LOuis team, of the National League and Amerie a n Association, was born April 20, 1870, at Holyoke, Mass., and his fellow townsmen considered him an extraordinary player when he made his mark there as an amateur. His professional career began in 1890, when he joined the Boston team, of the Players' League. In 1891 he was engaged by the Washington club, of the American Association, and took part that season in one hundred and nine championship" games, one hundred and one of which he played at second base. When the American Association and the National League were consolidated, during the winter of 1891-1892, and the Wagners got control of the Washington club, Dowd was re-engaged for the season of 1892, taking part that year in one hundred and forty-one championship contests, filling various infield and outfield positions, which included second and third bases, short stop and the outfield. The most of his work was done at second base, in which' position he took part In ninty-five championship games. In 1893 he was engaged by President Von der Ahe for his St. Louis, team, taking part that season in one hundred and thirty : one contests, all of which he played in the outfield. He was re-engaged by the St. Louis club for the season of 1894, taking part that ye"ar in one. hundred and fifteen championship games, as an outfielder. At ,the end of th6 campaign he was reserved, and he afterward signed for the season of 1895, taking part last year in one hundred and twenty-seven championship contests, one hundred and thirteen of which were played in the outfield. He ranked high both as a batsman and a fielder in the official averages of the National League and American. Association during the past season. It was by chance that he was given an opportunity . to demonstrate his ability as a batsman and a fielder. It was thought that he had lost his knack of hitting the ball, but it did not take him long to convince the management that it .was ...making a great mistake in that respect.

In private life the twins are Bessie and Jessie Picking, the name o! Ab» bott having been selected for the stage as more euphonious. They were bbftt not quite eighteen years ago itt the northern part of New York, not far froth the Canadian border. Reared la luxury and refinement, they did not shrink from the reverses which fol« lowed their father's death, but pluekil? determined- to utilize for their mother's aid those rare musical gifts which they had hitherto exhibited only at charity benefits and society functions. Going to New York, they secured an engagement with Ailgustln Daly, and sang a3 choristers in his production of "The Foresters," at Daly's theater. Whea Mr. Rice prepared "Little Christopher" for the Garden theater he selected the sisters for a singing specialty. A. M. Palmer, who was interested, saw them at rehearsal and strenuously objected to them. In his opinion they were only suited for drawing room entertainment, and he predicted their failure in extravaganza. But for just once in his life, Mr. Palmer's judgment was mistaken.

In the criminal court at Chicago recently the jury found Walter Wilmot, ex-left fielder'of the Chicago base ball club, not guilty of playing ball on Sunday. The suit was one of several.' brought by the Sunday International League against Captain Anson and other players. The jury decided that no breach of the peace was committed, and therefore flnee against the players were unwarranted. This case is the outcome of arrests made last summer on warrants sworn out by the Sunday Observance League, headed by Dr. Clark. Hhe cases were heard about two weeks afterwards by a suburban justice, who levied a small fine on the prisoners, and as it was supposed at the time discharged them for good. At any rate, the club continued playing Sunday ball and were never molested; President James Hart said at the time that the cases were all-settled, that the club had won. that they would continue playing Sunday during the balance ,of the season, which they did. Whether they would engage in Sunday ball this season he could not; say at the time, but thought they would not, as Captain Anson and a majority of the club were against it. The decision made at this late day assures Sunday, games in Chicago for next season. FULLER COMING BACK, Tho Beautiful. Serpentine Dancer Will . ;. Me Seen Ju "galproe."

A careful investigation of the public records, discloses the fact that there, arc yet several millions of acres of public lands in Oklahoma yet subject to homestead entry and settlement. It has generally been understood that all the lands in Oklahoma fit for agricultural purposes are already occupied, but such is not the fact. Owing to the method adopted for the opening of these lands to settlement, in many cases'as high as five or six persons would settle on a single track on the day of the race, and rather than stand the expense of a contest, or run the risk of other trouble, would, unknown to each other, abandon the land. Again, the main race'for lands at those openings was for tracts near the cities or proposed towii sites and along the lines of railroads, and thus many hundreds of almost equally as gocrl farms-as are In Oklahoma were pasecd over in the mad rush for homes. It is true that a large portion of the yet unclaimed public lands are more fit for stock-raising than for agricultural purposes; yet there are still hundreds of good homes awaiting the taking in that country and undoubtedly a large number of eastern people will take advantage of the same the coming season.

Next day the little fellow was the talk of every one who had heard of his performance. He did not win the championship, but he won glory enough to more than offset the title, and now managers are after him as an attraction, and manufacturers are offering him the finest of their wares if he will only let it be known that he uses skates of their manttfac" ture. This little fellow did not/know a "Richmond" from a "grapevine" or a "Philadelphia twist" when he went down to make his entry for the contest. He and his little companions 'who skated on the ponds about Douglas park called all these movements "flub- dubs," and at cutting "flubdubs" Frank Horrigan led all the lads In that region. How he came to enter against the champion fancy skater of Chicago and the Champion of Norway, Master Horrigan tells in this way: "Joe Hogan, who lives out my way, told me Tuesday there was going to be a race or skating match at Tattersall's between boys. I asked him how old they were and he said 16 years old. So I went down 'Christmas and entered. When I got there I found they were all men who were going to compete. I did not want to go in then, but Mr. Clarke, who lives out on California avenue, near our house, told me to go ahead. Mr. Clarke put on a pair of skates just before time to go on, and explained the various moves and their names, read me the rules, and so I put on my skates and went ahead."

The crowd of 2,600 siWply Wefit wild over the way the boy executed the different movements, and the fact that the contest was for the fancy skat* ing championship of Illinois was coin* pieteiy lost sight of, and it became In the eyes of all a contest between d small boy and men who were experts' on skates, "Upon the close of the afternoon's skating the boy was ahead of the men, having M points to their 71. Itt the evening, when the more difficult evolutions came, they passed him, as might have been expected. John Sandblom, champion of Norway, won the gold medal, with a total of 168 points. E!. S. Woods, chaml)ion of Chicago, was sec- ond'aiul Won the Silver medal, with 163 points, and the boy was third, with 131 points, taking the bronze medal. Had. he been acquainted with the rules and a little more experienced in the numerous evolutions he might have won. Anyway, hts performance was remarkable." J»«BO liall Notes.
