Shrewd observers of the game eon-

player and that he will fill tlie place ,
of ex-Captain Nash. On ground balls
he is exceptionally fast, and he is a
very sharp and accurate thrower.

Boston infield will be: Long, shortstop; ;
Lowe, second base; Tenney, first base,

only one to be doubted at present, as lie
lacks the experience of an infield posi-

He was somewhat of a success as a
pitcher that year, and the next he en-
tered the box altogether for that team
and he has been pitching since. In 189;;
he was with the Bloomsburg team of
the River league in Pennsylvania, and
in 1894 he joined the Lock Havens, then
the strongest amateur team in Penn-
sylvania. Last year was his first pro-
fessional engagement, and he joined the
Salem team of the New England as-
sociation, then managed by Frank
Leonard. When the association went
to pieces Leonard went to manage the
Portlands of the New England league,
and he took Yerrlck with him. He
made a good showing with the club,
and at the close of the season was one
of the finest twlrlers in the league.
An instance of Yerrick's effectiveness
was against New Bedford in a game
In that city on Aug. 13, when he retired
the club with only two safe hits. The
event was the pitching record of the
year in the New England league. While
pitching for the Salem team against
Lawrence at Salem on May 8, 1895,
he prevented the team from securing
more than two safe hits. His feat was
particularly noteworthy against the
New Bedford team, as such good batters
as Walters, WeihI. Charles Nyce, Fred
Doe, Sharpe, the Western league slug-
ger, Murphy and Delaney were mem-
bers of the club.
It was late in the season when Yer-
riek was given a trial by Manager Se-
lee, and under the name of Banks he
pitchcd against Washington. He de-
livers a swift ball and changes his pace
! very often. He is at all times cool in
the box and steady with men on bases.
At present he is at his home in Dan-
| ville, Pa.
Another man whose face is familiar
] to Boston patrons is James Collins,
whose connection with the bean-caters'
i team has been somewhat of a mystery.
The magnates rever realized what a
blunder they made when they let him
go to the Louisville team. His career

years she labored with all the zeal of

was rapid, so rapid, in fact, that for ob-

she wisely resolved to go where her op-

Worn with the exposure of army life
on the frontier, and poisoned by tne
continual drinking of alkali water,
Joseph Flegauf returned to Philadel-
phia eight years ago, broken down in
health and unable t< do any work.
He had served live years with the
Ninth United States Infantry In many
n desperate tight wi;b the Indians in
Arlsona and other frontier states and
had won an enviable record. In the
fierce conflict when Geronimo, the
famous chief of the Apaches, was cap-
lured, Mr. Fleugauf was among the
brave soldiers who, forgetful Of every-
thing hot duty, chargod upon the hos-
Life on the plains sent to an untimely
death many soldiers who were never
touched by a redskin's bullet or arrow,
and Mr. Flegauf came near such a fate
as that A long time before his time
was out he was taken seriously 111, but
he stuck to his post until an honorable
discharge was finally given to him.
When he reached Philadelphia, the
Indian lighter was scarcely more than
skin and bones, and for three weeks ho
lay desperately 111 In a hospital. He felt
dizzy, and blH stomach felt as If it had
dried up. These symptoms were accom-
panied by bloody dysentery, which no
medicine seemed to relieve.
After two years of Buffering, Mr.
Flegauf came to New York and was
treated by several physicians. These
did r.ot agree, some calling his disease
catarrh of the stomach, and others
In speaking to a reporter about his
Illness Mr Flegauf said the doctors
helped him, but, with all the money he
spent for advice and medicine, he was
able to work only a small part of the
time. Since moving to his present
home, No. r>17 West Forty-second street,
In New York, about a year ago, Mr.
Flegauf has been so 111 that his voice
and hearing almost left him.
Then all medicines failed, and the
sick man had little hope - f recovery
At this critical time Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People were recommended
to Mr. Flegauf, and, almost as a laSx
hope, he began taking them.
"The beneficial effect of the medicine
was felt at once," Mr. Flegauf told the
reporter, "and before I had taken a box
I began to eat with relish. Three boxes
made me so much better that 1 began
work and have been able to keep at It
since, for five months."
I)r. Williams' Pink IIlis contain all
the elements neewsary to give new life
and richness to the blood and restore

Lucy Uhl is described as having a very
attractive, charming and sympathetic
disposition, of an engaging and simple
nature and possessing to an unusual de-

has made a thorough study of music
and possesses unusual musical talents.
For two years she was president of tne
St. Cecilia society. This organization
has done a great deal for musical cul-

the study and interpretation of the
classics. It i« to Grand Rapids what
the Amateur Musical club is to Chicago.
Miss Uhl has also studied the fine arts.
She is that type almost always to be
found In the smaller cities, but invari-
ably surprising to the metropolitan, by
reason of its exemplification of ad-
vanced culture and artistic and literary
accomplishments. Miss Uhl is a bril-
liant conversationalist, and If her popu-
larity in Grand Rapids is an index she
will reflect great credit upon the Amer-
ican legation at Berlin. She is not un-
