of slow in-field punches than any man in the
league. He reminds one of Shorty Fuller, of
the New Yorks, in manner and speech.
In left field, there is Ashenback, of the
Shamrocks, who is a sure hitter and fine run
ner and thrower.
Then there are Curtain, Conley and Jack
Burke, of last season’s Nashvilles, for the other
outfields, though it has not been decided who
will be retained of the three mentioned.
Besides the last mentioned players. Manager
Sullivan has closed with the fastest minor
league fielder in the country to-day. His
name is Blake, and is sure to win 1 is way into
popular favor directly.
Jimmy Long also wants to come here, and
has forwarded his terms. It is probable that
he will wear an Atlanta uniform in the near
future, though if the present men show up all

Now, taking tin team individually, they are
certainly very strong. Especially is this so in
the box and behind the bat. The in-field is

of Atlanta’s best known ladies, and is now at
school near there. Her friends do not believe
that there is anything wrong or unusual about
the matter and do not like to see such insinu

about the facts.”
One of the facts is that The Looking Glass
did not connect anybody’s name with the un
fortunate ease referred to. Os course anybody
the shoe fits is at liberty to put it on. As far
as the people of Marietta not liking to see the
story is concerned The Looking Glass can
only say that, it received orders from Marietta
for over 500 copies containing the story.
This would not indicate any great amount
The exact facts have not yet come to light.
