BY WILL, G. MAC RAE.
This way-worn old world is full of
handy things, but you'd have to
scratch the list over with a fine-tooth
comb before you'd find anything- hand
'ier than that three-base hit that Ote
Johnson poked out in the third inning.
It came at a time when it was needed
badly and was as handy as a safety
pin to a lady cyclist who had ripped
her bloomers ten miles from mother.
Ask any one of the crowd out to see
the matinee and they will tell you
there was one inning of baseball and
eight of freeze and anxiety. The one
inning? was the third, and Mr. Nagle,
who hurled for the visitors, was stung
for four safe blfilets and a grand total
of four clangers to the bell. Kd Ivin
sella performed for the home talent
and it must be said in all candor, that
he came out of the skirmish decorated
with horse shoes and the rest of tho
junk that superstitious ones lay at the
altar of the God of good luck. At
times he was as uncertain in his de
livery as the Johnny who expects to
get his first kiss from his new gal. He
issued seven promissory notes, only
one of which was presented for collec
tion. Straightens Up in the Pinch.
When the pinch came and Los An
geles threatened to assault his sang
froid, the big bridegroom settled down
and there was nothing doing. Once
this happened in the fifth. Nagle
clouted one for two bags after East
erly, who broke into the game because
Happy Hogan had retired, had walked.
Bassey missed spearing Nagle's wallop,
but he didn't miss Easterly, who was
trying to make third. He heaved the
bail to Johnson and the trick was
done. Kinsella then walked Oakes,
putting two on lue pegs. Hope began
to ooze and the temperature of fear
jumped to 106, but "Wheeler skied to
Casey and Kinseila slipped Captain
Dillon three wind caroms.
While having Kinsella In mind, it's
just as well to tell how he beat out an
infield hit for a single and scored the
first run. Casey tried to help out, but
he failed. Ryan singled and "Wasn't
it awful, Mabel," Raftery struck out.
With two in the brine. Babe Danzig
hit to right, scoring Kinsella and tak
ing second because Kitty Brashear
fell. Two on the pillows and Bassey
coming up. He came up and Nagle
walked him to lay for Johnson. Right
thinking, but screwy guessing.
Johnson Does the Big Stunt.
The ex-captain of the Dutch, just
leaned against one of Mr. Nagle's
choicest and the ball traveled over the
Infield like a shell hurled from a 13
inch gun. Oakes tried to get In its
way and he did the Brashear specialty
of taking a grass toboggan. In the
meanwhile Ryan, Danzig and Bassey
raced home and Ote perched himself
at third. Nagle lost Cooney on four
wide ones and while Hogan was think
ing how bad his shin hurt, foxy
Cooney ran to first and kept on going,
stealing second without an effort or
protest. Whalen wound up the canto
by whiffing for the second time. ,
The fifth run was the result of a
double steal. Casey was in 'the morgue
when Ryan drove out his second
bingle. Raftery singles and they
worked the double steal. Raftery
drew Hogan's fire to second. The peg
was bad and when the ball kissed off
Delmas' glove It hit Raftery and went
to the outfield. Ryan scoring.
A base on balls to Dillon in the
fourth after Wheeler had become a
wind-jammer, hooked up with singles
by Brashear and Smith, scored Dillon.
In the ninth Ellis hit one of Kinsella's
straight ones for three bags. East
erly's left field poke scored him. Ka
gle's foul that Bassey made a brilliant
catch of, made it two out, but right on
the heels of this came passes to Oakes
and Wheeler, filling the bases. Cooney
took care of Dillon's Infield swat and
the agony was over.

thinks so little of Stanley Ketchel that

With Fltz and Battling Nelson in the
city, Portland just now Is entertaining
two ex-champions, and both have a
right to dream If they w'ant to. Fitz
is welcome to his opinion as to the
fighting ability of Ketchel, but there
are a few fight fans here who Jour
neyed all the way to San Francisco to
see that fight he lost to Jack O'Brien.
They have also seen Ketchel In action,
so they cannot be blamed If they smile
when they read what Fitz has to eay.
A lot of them smile, also, when they
hear Nelson declare that he will whip
Gans in July. There was a time in
Ruby Robert's career when he, perhaps,
could have taken Ketchel's scalp, but
that was aeons ago. The Cornishmau
says that Burns Is too light for a
heavyweight and that Jack Johnson
can whip Tommy. He picks Gans to
whip Nelson, and now It will be Inter
esting to get Nelson's opinion as to
what chances he thinks. Bob would
have against either Burns or Ketchel.
Yet both are free to dream on If it
makes them feel any better.

Dangerous Points Are Marked.
The members of the Portland Automo

course and completed all preliminary ar
rangements. For the benefit of the driv

approach to each dangerous turn or point
of the course have been strung across the
road at an elevation of 20 feet. This was
done in order that a driver coming be

All of the machines entered in the race
were on the course yesterday and several
hundred persons congregated at the dif
ferent viewpoints to watch the racers in
their tryouts. All the machines worked
splendidly, and the only expression of re
gret heard about the course came from
the drivers themselves, who deeply sym
pathize with the unfortunate William Fol
berth, who was severely injured and his
Oldsmoblle car wrecked in Tuesday's ac
cident. Folberth is not as badly injured
as was first believed, and Is now doing
nicely at Good Samaritan Hospital.
100 Miles Under Two Hours.
Many of the enthusiasts express their
belief that the 100-mile event will be
made in considerable less than two
hours. They base their belief in the
timed performances of several of the
machines yesterday afternoon. Christo
pherson In the Stoddard-Dayton and
William Wallace in the Thomas Six made
the circuit of the track, 14.4 miles, In 13
minutes, and Howard M. Covey, in his
Cadillac, made the route in less than
16 minutes. It was reported that Mur
ray Page In the Locomobile covered the
course in less than 15 minutes, although
he was not regularly timed.
These were merely tryouts. and if the
machines can make such splendid time
in that manner it is figured that they
can equal a mile a minute in competition.
A large crowd of spectators assembled
at the Twelve Mile House yesterday and
took a keen delight in watching Covey.
Page, Wallace, Christophersen and Dodd
make the turn at that point. All of them
took the corner in the neatest manner
Starter E. L. DeCamp was enthusiastic

course, and says that it Is the finest in

RANK OUTSIDER AT 100 TO 1
CAPTURES THE STAKES.
Belmont's Norman III, the Big Fa
vorite, Runs Seventeenth Book
makers Reap Rich Harvest.
LONDON, June 3. A rank outsider,
Signorinetta, owned by E. Glnistrelll and
quoted in the betting at 100 to 1 against,
today defeated all the American, British
and French cracks, and captured the
Derby stakes, valued at 6500 sovereigns
and the greatest prize of the turf world.
The Italian horse simply cantered home
from the hot favorites by two lengths.
A neck only divided the second horse,
the Duke of Portland's Primer, and third,
Barclay Walker's Llangwm. The time was
2:39 "4-5. Mercutio led to the mile post,
when Belmont's Norman III drew to the
front. The American horse, however, go
ing down hill, was overhauled by Moun
tain Apple, ridden by Lyne, an American
Jockey. Lyne held the lead with Sig
norinetta, Primer and Llangwm, ridden
by Maher, another American jockey, in
close attendance until the quarter-mile
home, when Signorinetta, the only filly
in the race, came on with a rush and
romped home in the easiest fashion.
Mountain Apple was fourth.
i Delay at the Start.
Some delay was caused at the post by
Azote and Vamose breaking the tape,
but ultimately a good sturt was effected.
Only one of the favorites flattered his
supporters at any point in the course.
This was Mountain Apple. Not since
Jeddah, another 100 to 1 outsider won the
Derby in 1S9S, has there been such utter
rout of favorites. Signorinetta has never
been seen to advantage. She could only
reach fifth place in this year's New Mar
ket stake. It is probable that the filly did
not carry more than $25 of the public's
money and her victory was received with
The quoted price on her, 100-to-l,
was purely nominal; the layers were
giving any price asked. Except from
the bookmakers, who had reaped per
haps the richest harvest of their lives,
there was not a cheer to proclaim the
victory of the Italian entry. The only
horse considered a possible winner to
secure a place was Llangwm, with
Maher up. Both Norman HI and Sea
.sick II started well enough, and made
the running in the early part of the
race, but they soon fell Into the ruck.
Seasick II finished sixth. King Edward's
Pierrier 13th, Norman -III 15th, and
Azote 17th. Signorinetta le the first
filly to win the blue ribbon since the
victory of Shotovers in 1882.
Biggest Crowd in Years.
Lured by the fact that at least half
of the horses which were to run in the
historic Derby were considered possible
winners, the largest crowd that has been
seen in many years assembled at Epsom
Downs. Special trains from distant
points In the provinces brought thou
sands and a hundred special trains left
the various terminals in London crowded
to suffocation for the famous racecourse.
The procession by road made its start
during the night. Later the fashionable
racegoers came on In coaches and motor

Prince and Princess of Wales, the Duke

THE FIRST TASTE
Learned to Drink Coffee AVhcn a Baby.
If parents, realized the fact that cof
fee contains a drug caffeine which is
especially harmful to children, they
would doubtless hesitate before giving
the babies coffee to drink.
"When I was a' child in my mother's
arms and first began to nibble things
at the table, mother used to give mfc
sips of coffee. As my parents used
coffee exclusively at meals I never
knew there was anything to drink but
coffee and water.
"And so I contracted the coffee
habit easily. I remember when quite
young, the continual use of coffee so
affected my parents that they tried
roasting wheat and barley, then ground
it In the coffee-mill, as a substitute
for coffee. '
"But it did not taste right and they
went back to coffee again. That was
long before Postum was ever heard of.
I continued to use coffee until I was
27, and when I got Into office work, I
began to have nervous spells. Espe
cially after breakfast I was so nervous
I could scarcely attend to my corre
spondence. "At night, after having coffee for
supper, I could hardly sleep, and on
rising in the morning would feel weak
"A friend persuaded me to try Pos
tum. My wife and I did not .like it at
first, but later when boiled good and
strong it was fine. Now we would
not give up Postum for the best coffee
we ever tasted.
"I can. now get good sleep, am free
from nervousness and headaches. I
recommend Postum to all coffee drink
ers." "There's a Reason."

esting from the American point of view
by the fact that for the first time in the
history of the race, Norman III. an Amer
ican colt, owned by August Belmont, of
New York, was the favorite, while
William K. Vanderbilt's French-bred
colt, Seasick II, also occupied a very
good position in the betting.
The Derby was won last year by Rich
ard Croker's Orby, but this year Mr. Cro
ker had no horse entered. The Derby
has been won three times by Amer
icans: By Mr. Croker in 1907. by Pierre Loril
lard in 1SS1 with Iroquois, and by the late
William C. Whitney In 1901, with the Eng
lish horse, Volodyovski, leased for the
year from Lady Meux.
The oldest Derbygoers say that there
never was a happier day or such a great
crowd at Epsom Downs. It Is certain that
never In recent years has so much enthu
siasm been evinced. From early morning
all the roads leading to the Downs had
been crowded with vehicles. So thick
were they that on the main thoroughfares
motor cars and carriages had to move at
a snail's pace.
