Trls ford laughed. He couldn't
help It.
Although the team, with one excep
tion, was not n party to the deep, dark
secret, the players plainly stinted the
relief which Trls experienced at sight
of Uarney Iirkin. They sang as they
put on their uniforms, and one would
iave supposed, to look In upon them,
that they were preparing for morning
practice In the trnlulng reason. In
Btcad of getting ready to fight for the
highest honors of the town and the
popularity of the home town.
Wild tumult broke loose at sight of
tho Giant-killers, nnswering the yell
which had gone up on the appearance
of tho Phillies. There tvero the usual
preliminaries nil before cameras.
There was snappy practice by the Na
tionals. Then tho Giant-killers took
the field, to limber up and get their
grip on the ball nnd .sure fire Into
their throws.

An acuto-e-lghted fan Jumped up In

tho shouts of "Down in front I" scan

second base to the Giant-killers' bench
much as nn anxious mother would
look for her lost child. Then in agon

"Where's Wfb Sliute?"
T,yes by the thousand traveled to
the edge of the clay-base path In right.
There an uneasy substitute was trying
his hardest to accomplish the Impos

of second basemen, .
, Whet on the terrestrial hail did It
mean? Was Trls Ford crazy?
Tardily, fifteen minutes after the
hour set for the game to begin, the
ofllclnl announcer raised Ids mega
phono and sing-songed the opposing
batteries. Tho fans bowled with de
light when they heard thnt Harney
Larkln was to pttch for the Giant
killers, although they knev it. of
course. Hut when the announcer add
ed tha) I'crvls was to "play second

"He's disappeared!"
Gloom, Impenetrable gloom, settled
dowu upon a majority of the great
throng thoso who hud come to help
tho GIniit-klllcrs win. Thulr quick
minds were recalling what tho rlvnl
mannger, John Martin, had given out
after the Giant-killers downed New
York, They leuiembcicd every word
of it:
"I want to go on record as saying
that, Rhute ! Ilnj greatest, bnlj pjnyer
in the world, lie wins more games
for Ids club than nny other man on the
diamond today and winning games Is
what count In hnsebnll. He wat di
rectly responsible for two t.f the games
which his team won from us, and was
there nil the time In the other two vic
tories In defensive work he was eas
ily the klng-plu, breaking up our de
fense and making sensational plays
around second base. The record
shows that he led his own team In the
attack. I say again Shute Ih (h
