But In colonizing, as in other things, the factor of competi- .n appears. Only a definite number of ilonists leave Europe every year and 'or them the colonies of the world informally compete, offering this or that Advantage to the intending settler. But one of the first things the colonist wants 'to know is whether living will be fairly cheap in the place of which he Is thinking. "Can I get the things I want to build my house and work my farm reasonably cheap, and will the comforts f shall want for myself and my family be procurable at moderate prices?" These are the sort of questions that occur to the "balancing" colonist. But as regards the French colonies a close investigation can prove only one thing —namely, that settlers in them are handicapped by high tariffs nnd the dear prices that follow high tariffs. Hence the French colonies find it ex- jtremely to attract colonists. Italians, Germans and Englishmen who going to leave Europe find the i'rench colonies too dear, and even the tew Frenchmen who voluntarily "exile " emselves" prefer places where they ill not be pursued by the general tar. The result is that the French col- ies are without colonists.—Spectator.

"The scene was In it. Western state,though neither of the reutlemen resides In that state now. Both were candidi- dates for a small country office, and, both then, as they are now, were hustlers for anything they were after. They were- making a house-to-house canvass, which was necessary at that time, owing to Hie sparse population, and -while, they endeavored to work In different sections, they frequently found themselves in the same neighborhood at the same time. The occurrence which I refer to was at n farm about a mile distant from the village -where both candidates were to speak the following day. The candidates kept their eyes pretty well on each other during the oarly part of til 6 day, but. during the afternoon they started out to do some missionary work at farmhouses. By a singular circumstance they -landed at the siine farm, though one did not know the other was there imtil later on. "The man first referred to, finding that the owner of the farm was absent, devoted himself to the wife, and, of course, said all kinds of nice things to her, making special inquiry after the children, whether they had caught the measles, which prevailed at the time. etc. The lady seemed charmed with the attention , shown her, but said she would' have td'be 'excused, as she had to milk the cow. The candidate kindly offered to assist in that performance, saying that, though lie coilld not milk, he could keep the flies off the cow, or at least hold her tall "While' engaged in holding the cow's tail he ventured to ask if his competitor for the. office had been around yet.

But it Isn't. On one side the critic persistently declares that average-keeping does the game more harm than good; that players work solely for percentages in the records and thereby damage the game- winning chances of their teams. On the other hand, managers still, as they always have, take the average tables as crlterlons for their selections of players and he without such figures ut-. tefly at sea. ,.V/ere there no averages published the manager who desired to engage a player would have to elthor take the word of the player or some mutual friend as to the man's ability or make a long and expensive journey to see him play. Figures properly interpreted mean a great deal. Read carelessly, the average*? are certainly deceiving. Thus, the casual reader, glancing at the statistics, would judge such a shortstop as Connaughton of New York far superior to Dahlen of Chicago, because Connaughton's fielding average is about .922 to Dahlen'a .906. Yet, again, these same figures, read by the veteran judge of ball-playing, bear an entirely different meaning. It will be seen that Dahlen has accepted or attempted to stop about seven chances per game to young Connaughton's five. The fact that he has missed enough chances to give him the lower fielding record of the two cannot for a minute compare with the plain evidence which shows that he has gathered in balls, on every side .which th'e ; 'oLher man was not in the habit of even stopping. At the top of the shortstops stands Jennings, and in his case the average seems to be deserved, for an investigation of his figures will show him to have accepted and attempted as many cfeaaces in the aggregate as anybody, while fewer chances have got away from him than from any other shortfielder. In this case the figures are evidence of perfection, seldom marred with the slightest flaw. In Dahlen's case they show that the little fellow has gone at everything, but that a number of grounders have eluded him or been thrown too low. Farther down the list will,, be-. seen the name of young De Montrevllle. He stands 'way down in the figures, yet a count-up would show that he has had as many chances per game to handle as either Jennings or Dahlen. The inference here again is plain and correct—De Montroville shirks nothing, but lacks the finished perfection which would make him the equal of Dahlen and Jennings. At the extreme bottom of the list, with a large bunch of errors,, will be found the name of Charley Farrell, and again the figures tell their own story—that of a catcher trying to play an infield position and lacking the experience necessary. Tim Urooklyn Catvlier. John H. Grim, the clever .catcher, of the Brooklyn team, was born Aug. 9, 1867, at Lebanon, Ky., but at an oarly age his parents took up their residence at Indianapolis, Incl., and it wan at the latter city that the subject of this Sketch learned to play ball. After gaining quite a local reputation with amateur teams he accepted his first professional engagement with the Danville club of the Inter-State league in 1887. In 1888 he was with the Lima team of the Tri-State league, and after participating in fifty-one championship games and ranking thirteenth as *ft batsman in a field of one hundred anil sixty-two players, according to the of" fioial averages of that organization, his release was. sold to the Philadelphia club of the"NatlonaMeague;'where he was given a trial JB a few §ai»es {a}), b«t as he \W apt considered for tfeSf l»a;kjv leftgtje Jig .

Taylor, the clever pltchoi 1 nnd mainstay of the Philadelphia team, was born May 27,1873, at Staten Island, N. Y., and it was with an amateur team of his native place that ho learned to play ball. In 1891 he accepted his first professional engagement with the Lebanon club of the Pennsylvania State league.- The^New York club made a bid for. his services for the season of 1892 and he accepted it, but later on was released to the Albany club of the Eastern league without being given a fair trial, and what has since proved a loss to the New Yorks has been a great gain to the Philatlelphias. Taylor took part In JOHN B. TAYLOR. thirty-three championship contests while with the Albany club and made a remarkably clever showing as a pitcher, while his batting and fielding were excellent. His good work with the Albanys led to his engagement during the latter part of that season with the Philadelphia club, where he has since remained as its crack pitcher. .11 in my Ityiin'K Story, "I saw eighteen Englishmen try to play baseball once," says Jimmy Ryan, "and their ideas were fearfully and wonderfully original. They had the rules flown pat, except in one particular. They didn't know that a man stops, gets through and waits for another bat after he reaches the home- plate. Their idea of run-making was the ouo they had always followed in cricket, and the result was excruciatingly funny. So far an the fielding and Imttigg went they weren't half bad. The pitcher stood up in the box at the start, let go' a good, swift ball and the batter soaked it. The" short-stop made a rattling good line catch, and I said; 'Why, these fellows are all right.-! They have learned 'the game mighty-' well, 1 ' The next man up hit the ball clear over the center-fielder's head. 'Well cut, Harry! Well cut! Run It out! Run it out!' They all howled, and the fellow did run it out. He made the circuit in, good time, to my intense astonishment, kept right on and reached first before the -fielders got the ball, He was oft' on the next ball thrown and made a good steal of second, Then the fellow at bat hit a good three-bag- ger to left and the fellow iyho bad Just navigated around for six bases went homo, started for firs*-, reached it and stayed there. I hadn't said a word. They kept on hitting the ball and the fellow who had made the first hit kept on rupning. Finally, -when -three jneu< Had been put out, I figured up that this gentleman had made seven runs and the rest of his team three. So they counted it and I then realized that they were playing on the cricket pJan— -keep ou running till you get put out, But 1 wasn't fully prepared for their game you in the second inning one of them hit a igng foul to the rwr, What does he do, but start off and circle the bases to the same old howl of 'Run it out!
