being suspicious .of boys who were too

take to your friends out of town.
First and foremost comes baseball. If
any one doubts the universal ' popularity
of this game, one afternoon upon the
street will convince him that the Ameri
can boys' love of baseball has become
hereditary.' It seems almost as if these
boys no sooner left the cradle than a base
ball found its way into their hands. They
commence to play as soon as they can
roll a. ball across the pavement. -From
a real . game, with nine I'men" on a side

boy; but Til warrant you that' from the
inhabitants of a block I can' select nine
boys, none of whom shall' be oyer'ten
years of age, . who ' can defeat the best
nine of ' thirteen-year-old fellows yom
village can produce... . .
They play in the streets; they play on
the sidewalk;; and. they go at it with a
vim and earnestness one grows " enthusi
astic in watching. : They pitch "curves,"

the cobblestones, with slippery car tracks

Is' required : to measure the arc of a "fly

it may be captured; but when the ground
is a .crowded street, and there is added

really mind, because' it is- an effectual
preventive of ball- playing, is the blue
coated policeman,' known by the boys as
a "cop," an abbreviation of "copper,

is intense excitement; shouts of encour
