S A THE PITCHER'S AUT. Clever and Scientific Curves, Slioots, JtaUw ana Drops from the II ox. It w.is by slow stages, writes T. xl Slurnanc, that the present high stand Jug of the pitcher's art was attained. Arthur Curamings, a Brooklyn youth, was the first to bring into use the out curve. He was known as the boy wonder, back in 1869, with the Stars, ol Brooklyn. I have heard him tell how he first discovered the curve. He was pitching against a picked nine one day .and noticed the ball curving. He had wo difficulty in striking the batsman out, and went home that night and tried to study out the phenomenon. The next day he invited some gentle--men friends out to see him work. They laughed at him, and when he tried to convince them that he could accom plish what he claimed he failed, as no doubt in his anxiety he sent the ball loo fast, and very little curve can be got on a speedy-pitched ball. He was not discouraged, however, but went out with his catcher the next day and loarncd tha...

Abilene Eeflector. Thursday, July 14, 1887, HENBY LITTS, Editor. The Murray bill moves in a mysteri ous w.'v '-'s wonders to perform. The reduction in the number of in ternal revenue districts, will reduce the expenditures of tliat department, 8120,000 per year. The 2sTew York Star is making a vigorous effort to raise $125,000 to erect a suitable monument to Gen'l Grant. Over $5,000 has been raised up to date. There was on old-fashioned red skin battle waged near St. Louis, a few days ago, wherein scalping knives, Winchesters and revolvers were brought into play. Three of the "noble"' were downed, and the bal ance surrendered. The Indians, six in number, were encamped near the city. Jake Sharp's friends are making stieneous efforts to have the old man let off with a light sentence. A score of well paid physicians are producing certificates showing that a long im prisonment sentence would simply mean nearly the same thing as capital punishment. The shock of such a sentence they claim...

A y - r A TALKING TO ONE'S SELF. A Most Excellent Way or Combatlnc Wevt ncM, Egotism and Pride. An elderly minister, being twitted upon, the growing habit of talking to himself, replied that it gave him great pleasure so to do for two reasons first, because it is always agreeable to talk to. a sensible man; and, second, it is equally agreeable to hear a sensible "man talk. There is, in fact, a certain fascination in it. A recent writer upon the "Human Brain" asserts that this habit is one of the tokens of incipient insanitj. It is to be hoped that it is not. For it prevails usually among children and persons of advanced age, and though sometimes indicative of a certain mental weakness, it need not on that account necessarily point to a loss nf brain. It is doubtless often a mere habit, arising from intense rellection, among sober-minded people. It might prove highly profitable indeed to many persons if they would cultivate this rare exercise. For the trouble is that individuals do n...

0 Mr. Blaine seems to have brought down one Coon in London, anyhow. The ex-Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, wlio has just returned from abroad, is very voluble about the mash that the Plumed Knight has got on the Britishers of all parties. The c vention of the Union Labor party ni Jolunibus was as numerously attended as the state conventions of the older organizations generally are. There were 374 delegates present. It is noted that all the farmers in the convention were opposed to the George land theory. Our present war tariff levied upon over three thousand articles of com mon use, is a monster piece of injus tice, inequality and false pretence. It has impoverished many industries to subsidize a few. It has degraded American commerce from the front to an inferior rank on the high seas. It cost the people five times more than it produces to the treasury, obstructs the processes of production, and wastes the fruit of labor. The Union Labor party of Ohio, held a state convention,...

The Cincinnati Commercial Gazette recent1--dvised Republicans to go for St. Jo. .'s idea of prohibition with "fire, brimstone, pitchforks, and butch er knives' The Chicago cattle market is demoral ized. "Wednesday's market was the worst of the year; trade was lifeless all day. There was an average decline of 10 to 35 cents, which carried quota tions to a lower plane than they had previously occupied. The metropolitan police have taken possession of the city of Wichita. The city police force have been relieved from duty, and the appointees of the commissioners qualified. It is stated that the old police force was superior, and has a host of friends. The theory that the people of this country control their local governments, does not hold good in a Republican state.
