When She Released Babe Ruth to the
New York Americans at a
Fancy Price
(Associated Press)
New York, Jan. "C The most pop popular
ular popular indoor sport here today was
guessing how much the New York
Americans paid Eoston for Babe Ruth,
whose purchase was announced last
night at Los Angeles by Miller Hug Hug-gins,
gins, Hug-gins, manager of the Yankees. The
nearest approach to anything of an
official nature was the admission of
Colonel Ruppert, the Yankee presi
dent, that he understood an offer of
$100,000 for Ruth was reftrsed last
summer by the Boston club. Sporting
writers estimate the price paid at
$125,000 to $150,000. It was only a
few years ago when the announce
ment that the Giants had paid $11,000
for Marquard staggered the sporting
world.

Big Devilfish a Victim mt the Colonel'
Love of Sport, Either on
Sea or Land.
The fame of the late Co). Theodore
Roos-i-lt as a big-game hauter is well
known, but he waf en u ally as adept at
killing big flsh of the ea, according to
Russell J. Coles, noted big-fish killer.
Attracted by one of Coles' articles
about killing the devilfish, the colonel
appealed to him for instruction In the
art. After taking several land lessoni,
using a rpear with which he saw an
African kill a lion, he finally became
expert, and Mr. Coles formed a party
to hunt the devilfish oft the coast of
Florida, in Ptinta Gorda. March 25,
1917. There the colonel killed his first
devilfish, hitting the huge creature,
which weighed many tons, Just two
Inches from the spot Indicated on a
drawing by Coles, and driving the
spear two feet four Inches through the
heaviest and boniest structure of the
fish. The colonel was standing on the
cab of a small boat traveling nine miles
an hour, and the fish was coming to toward
ward toward the boat at the rate of 15 or IS
miles an hour, swimming about four
or six feet under water. Had the
colonel missed his aim the fish would
have been able, with one of. its side
fins, to upset the boat and drown the
fishermen. An hour after his first
catch the colonel killed a second devil devilfish,
fish, devilfish, which was the second largest
devilfish ever killed. Mr. Coles Is a
scientist who has hunted devilfish for
more than 20 years.

HORSE HAD A TEMPERAMENT

At Least Animal Seemed t Prv
That It Had the Ability t Think
for Itself.
Prima donnas i.ud tugh-strunc artltts
are temperamental, tut it is not often
that such a trait is found In a hor,
as was the case in an Incident
which occurred on one of the uptown
streets the other afternoon, rays the
New York Times. The horse was at attached
tached attached to a delivery Wagon. Mr. Horse
evidently thought that he had done
enough work for the day, so without
further ceremony he lay down across
the tracks of one of the trolley lines.
A crowd soon collected, followed by
the usual excitement with a storming
motorman and a call for the police. A
woman who said that she knew some something
thing something about hordes, said the animal
was overcome by hard work, and she
gave instructions to the driver as to
whatshe should do. After a few min minutes
utes minutes had passed a veterinary stepped
out of the crowd and took a look at
the horse. The veterinary turned to
the cop and the others and said:
"There is nothing the matter with
this horse.' He is tired and he just
made up his mind to take a rest. You
know when a horse gets tired, he Is
not particular as to where he stretches
his bones. My word for it. he will be
all right In a few minutes and t on
his way.
The woman did not agree with him
and Insisted that something be done to
alleviate the animal's suffering. She
and the veterinary got into a heated
argument, when the horse without fur further
ther further ado decided that the street was
not the best place In the world to
stretch his bones on, so he got up on
all fours and shook himself. The
driver hitched him to the wagon, an?
Ur. Horse started off on his labors a
If nothing had happened. One man in
the crowd said that he'd be darned if
he ever knew until then that a horse
could think.

Fine Metals Have
Given Maxwell its Rank

HE verv substance. of which a. car

many, many friends.
It was necessary to make the Maxwell chassis
of the verv best materials. For its great mission
was to transport in an exfremefy economical ivay
as great a passenger load over the same road and at
the same speed as tle larger and Tieavier cars.
Thus it was obvious that the Maxwell had to be
light. And to make it light the quality metal
rA'ere used.
Metallurgists, the men who have made the
otudy of metals a science, say that it compares
favorably pound for pound with the highest priced
cars the world has produced.
But you need not be a metallurgist to discover
this "inner goodness" in a Maxwell. Three months
will tell; six months will tell you more.
Otherwise Maxwell in five short years would
never have grown from a productT:n of 5,000 a
year to 100,000 a year.
300,000 Maxwells on the highways of the world
today answer most any question you can ask about
this great car. Price, $985 f. o. b. Detroit.
