The; delightful and tender game of
JJjse Bail! Having broken out with fresh
violeneo this season, the following
sketch from the Traveler's Record is iu
Tho doctor said we needed exercise.

wisely, if not too well. Uhen we pro

jrreen stint, yeuow trowsers, pumps. n
colored shoes, a paper collar, aud a pur
ple necktie, and, with a lot of other
delegates, moved gently to the grouod.
There were two nines. These nines
were 'antagonists. The ball is a pretty
ViMle drop of softness, the size of a
goose-egg, and five degrees harder than
a jrocjk. The two nines play against
each other. It is a 'quiet game much
lijio chess, only a little more chase than
Thcre was an umpire. Ills position
was n hard one. He sits on a box and
Veils "fov;l." His duty is severe.
' $ took' the lat. It fa a murderous
plaything, descended from Pocahontas
to the head of John Smith. The man
in front of me was a pitcher. He was
ra nit pitcher, but he sent the balls
He' caught it, too!
1 Umpire said 'jpJay." It is the most
radical play I know of, this base ball.
Sawing cord-wood is moonlight rambles
eside base ball. So the pitcher sent a
a!l toward me, It looked pretty com-
so I let it come. Then he sent
me auother. I hit it with the club
and hove it gently upward. Then I
started to walk io the first base. The
mil in the pitcher's hands and some
ody said he eaUglit a fly, Alas, poor
ly! I walked leisurely toward the
bse. Another man took the bat. 1
kdrned to sec how he was making it,
and a mule kicked me on the cheek.
The man said it was the ball. It felt
Jike a mule, and I reposed on the grass.
!fn ball went on.
' Pretty soon there were two more flte.
and three of us flew out. Then the
other nine came in, apd us nine went
out. Just a? I was standing on my
ftignUy, ia the left field, a hat ball, a
ifeey cull it, cumc skyrocketing toward
me. My captain yelled "take it."
I hastened gently forward to where

sweetly the ball descended. Every

pounds of raw beef on that eye, and
yet it paineth.
Then I wanted to go home, but my
gentle Captain said "nay." So I nayed
and stayed. Pretty soon it was my

in the ball again. This time I took it
srpaare and sent it down the right field,
through 'a' iajrlor . window, a kerosene
amy a'ad rp!tip against the "head of
in'' infant, who was quietly taking its
nap in his or its mother's arms. Then
I slung the bat, and meandered forth
to the first base. I heard high words,
looked. When I slung the bat, I

ehase a ball three-fourths of a mile
down hill, while all the spectators yell
'muffin!'' "go it!" "home run !" "go
round again!" or "go round a dozen
times!" Base ball is a sweet little
game. When it came my turn to bat
ift-r&t'A, I noticed everybody move back
treated about twelve rods. lie was
timid. The pitcher sent 'cm in hot.
tut' balls in time of war are good.
X ooat' Jiice 'eni too not lor lun.
.fter awhile I got a fair clip at it, and
ybti bet it went cutting the daisies down
the right field. A fat man and dog sat
in the shade of an oak, enjoying the
game. The ball broke one leg of the
dog, and landed, like a runaway engine,
in the corporosity of the fat man. He
was taken home to die.
The & I went on a double-quick to
the field, and- tried to stop a hot ball.
Jl came toward raVfrom lo bat at the
rate of nine miles a minute. 'I 'put up
my hands the ball went sweetly sing

my palms with it. ? '

I .have'played two weeks, and don't
think I like the game. I've looked
over the scorer's book and find that I've
broken several bats, made one tally,
broken one umpire's jaw, broken ten
windows in adjoining houses, killed a
buby, broke the leg of a dog, mortally
injured the bread-basket of a spectator,
knocked five other players out of time
by slinging my bat, and knocked the
waterfall from a school marm who was
standing twenty rods from the field, a
quiet looker on.
