"I forget all about the fans and

Kircher started out as a catcher and
caught for the Shelbyville club until
the middle of 1910, when he was sold
to Winchester, in the same league. In
1911 he went to Norfolk, in the Vir

the close of the 1913 season. He was
manager of the team the last season.
In 1914 he was with the Atlanta club,
which got him by draft. He came to
the Portland Beavers this season in
exchange for Roy Moran, whom the
Beavers took from the Salt Lake club
in a trade for Buddy Ryan.
Kircher is a graduate of the sand

NOME, Alaska, April 17. Leonard
Seppala. driving his own team of 16
Siberian wolf-dogs, won late today the
412-mile All-Alaska sweepstake dog
team race, which started at 9 o'clock
last Wednesday morning. His time
for the course was 78 hours. 44 minutes
and 37 seconds. 4 hours 30 minues and
17 seconds slower than the record es
tablished by Jjohn Johnson's Siberian
wolves in 1910.
When Seppala's footsore Siberians
limped across the line in their quaint
looking little moccasins which Seppala
had fitted to their feet to protect them
from the rough snow trail. A. A.

CaL Eskimo John, driving the team
entered by the Council Kennel Club,
was approaching Safety Roadhouse. 21
miles away, and will finish third.
Besides winning a purse of J 1000.
Seppala captured the most highly
prized minors in Alaska sporting cir
cles, the title of foremost dogmusher
in the North.
Except for tender feet. Seppala's
hardy Siberian wolves finished the race
in good condition with every dog in
harness. The driver also stood the
long drive well.
Despite a heavy snow storm, every
man. woman and child able to be out
doors lined Front street and cheered
wildly as Seppala drove toward the
finish line in front of the Board of
Trade Saloon, where his wife, who was
elected queen of the sweepstakes at
the carnival last Saturday night, was
waiting to greet him.
This race again marks the superior
ity of the Siberian wolf dog, a cross
between the "husky," the Alaska work
ing dog, and the Siberian wolf, over
the Alaska-bred malamute in tests of
endurance. Although lacking the speed
of the malamute for short distances,
they have the endurance of the wolf
coupled with the faithful Intelligence
of the Alaskan dog and will tug at the
sledge until ordered to stop.
Seppala's dogs traveled well, but
were suffering slightly from the ice and
frozen pebbles on the trail. To protect
them from the rough traveling Sep
pala placed mukluks on his dogs' feet.
Seppala's dogs began suffering from
sore feet before he reached Council
last night and he had to lay over there
seven hours to give his dogs a rest.
Allan would have been well ahead
of Seppala had his dogs not run off
the trail late last night, setting him
back four hours. Allan left Council.
85 miles from Nome, at 10:30 o'clock
last night. He had gone but a short
distance toward Timber, 21 miles away,
when one of his leaders, which was
running loose ahead, turned off onto
a miner's trail where the Nome trail
crosses Fox River. A light snow was
falling, obscuring the trail, and when
Allan's team turned up the false trail
after the loose dog Allan did not no
tice that they were off the right track.
After going a short distance up the
river. Allan started to turn back, but
the loose leader, also realizing- that
he was on the wrong trail, started to
take a short cut and became lost.
Allan tied his team to a tree and
set out after the loose dog. which cir
cled around and headed back toward
Council. Allan returned for his team
and then followed the runaway back
to the station he iiad left at 10:30.
arriving there at 12:36 this morning.
The runaway dog was waiting for him.
During this maneuver Allan traveled
25 miles and wasted four hours. His
dogs were tired and he rested until
daylight leaving, soon after Seppala
resumed the Journey toward Nome.
