Rubbing Salt In The Wounds

Prior to entering on the contest for the world's base ball championship the St. Louis Browns boasted of their ability to steal bases and based their hopes of success in the contest largely on this feature of the game. In the games that have been played the Detroit boys have shown that they were capable of giving the Browns pointers on this feature of the game and have been stealing bases with an audacity that has astonished their competitors. The Browns find they are not playing an Association team.-[Cheboygan Tribune.]
