In the Long Run Team Which Plays
Game as It Should From Start of
Season to End Will Finish
Better Than Its Rival.
"Inside ball' is a term which puz
zles many enthusiasts. The expres
sion immediately brings to mind se
cret manipulations on the diamond
and is generally passed up as being
too deep. In reality inside ball is
nothing more or less than playing the
game. There is no mystery about it.
Of course, every major league and
minor league squad has its "signs," or
signals as they are called by the fans:
writes Malcolm McLean in the Chi
cago Evening Post. But so have foot
ball teams and basketball squads.
Take the average ball game. Th
home team is at bat, nobody is down
and there's a runner on first. The
batter tries to lay down a sacrifice
hunt, and misses the ball. "Aw, hit
er out." yells a bleacherite in disgust.
Then he turns to his neighbor and
growls. "Gee, I can't stand for that
kind of a game. What's that guy try
ing to bunt for? Why don't he hit
'em to the fence?"
This instance Is one of. the many
mysteries" of inside ball. It's play
ing the game to sacrifice that man
around to second, from which point
he can easily score on a single. If
the batter tries to hit safely right
from the jump there's the immediate
danger of a double play, and two men
Take another case. There's a man
on first and a left-hander at bat. Such
a hitter generally slaps one to right
field or between first and second. So,
naturally, as soon as the ball is hit
the shortstop runs to cover second in
the hopes of negotiating a double play.
If the batter hits right-handed the sec
ond baseman usually covers second.
Yet this is the so-called inside ball
which has so many fans wondering
what's it all about.
The Cubs in the past were called
masters of inside ball. The reason
was they had' played together so long
that every man knew the instant the
ball was hit just what to do under the
circumstances. In other words, it was
second sense or "inside ball" if you
Yet this style of play doesn't al
ways win far to the contrary. Fre
quently the Boston Red Sox have
thrown inside ball to the winds and
played the hit-and-run game instead of
sacrificing. They broke up the defense
of the rival teams Ty pulling stuff
when not expected. It's far more spec
tacular if they get away with it. For
Instance, with first and second occu
pied and none out, to have the battel
knock the ball over the fence at th
first pitch warms the cockles of the
heart more than a dinky little bunt
and an out at first.
But you'll find that, in the long run
the team which plays the game as it
should from the start of the season to
the end will finish better than its
rival, if both squads are about equal
In strength. Cap Anson says the old
Chicago Colts used as much inside
ball as the great teams of today, and
proves his point. So If it wasn't mys
terious thirty years ago it shouldn't
be so today.
LEE TANNEHILL'S HARD LUCK
Arm Is Splintered Ten Minutes After
First Opportunity to Break Into
Game This Season.
It's pretty tough to be put out with
a broken wrist before you have been
ten minutes in the game, but that is
what happened to Lee Tannehill of
the Chicago White Sox on May 8. He
had taken Weaver's place in the game
with Washington and was at bat when
one of Walter Johnson's shoots caught
him on the arm. He did not know
the arm was broken until he went
into the field after the side was re
tired and attempted to throw.

One Great Cause Is Eye-Strain From
Which City People Suffer Espe
cially Because Their
Vision Is Restricted.
Almost every little or great ailment
throughout your system affects your
nerves. Your eyes and liver and lungs
and stomach and heart and many oth
er things throughout your system all
"take it out" on the poor nerves It
they happen to be a bit out of order
Recent discoveries show that ninety
per cent of nervous troubles are due
to other disorders. Eye-strain is one
cause. Not only' those who have to
use their eyes constantly, like stu
dents and lapidaries and miniature art
ists and engravers, but city tolks who
live and work where their vision Is
restricted, are all sufferers from nerv
ous troubles, more or less.
The eye wants to get exercise as
well as the muscles. Living in narrow
streets and gazing out across little al
leys against brick walls, rushing into
narrow cars and hurrying into smalt
rooms, all keep the vision down to
narrow liimts and pretty soon eye
strain sets ia and this brings on nerv
And one of the peculiarities of this
is that many people will not notice
that 'they have eye-strain because the
nervous disorder that results will be
so much worse than the cause. Eye
strain is much less common in the
Working in a stooped position, curv
ing the spine, brings pressure on the
tiny blood vessels and this In turn
acts on the nerves. "I get so nervous
sitting still," one will say. As a mat
ter of fact the continual pressure on
the spine reacts on the nerves. As
sedentary occupations are more com
mon in the cities there is more nerv
ousness from this cause in cities.
Liver troubles bring on quick nerv
ous disorders; city noises in time ef
fect the ears and the nerves are again
in for a siege of trouble. Not even at
night or during sleep is there com
plete quiet in the city. Women be
come irritable because of excessive
blood pressure, and again it is their
nerves that suffer also every one
else about them is apt to suffer.
In the Wrong Way.
Two men who had not been in th
wilds of Mississippi long enough to
know the dangerous places in the
swamps started out one warm day in
early spring with minds and bait
to catch some fish. They had not gone
far when one of them came upon
what he thought to be an unusually
high spot of terra firma, o'ergrown
with water grass.
He planted his feet firmly upon this
spot only to be precipitated headlong
Into a sink hole, the like of which ex
ists not out of Mississippi.

"Frankfurt has a large English
