BEST HITTING TEAMS
Championship Pennants Won by
Good, Hard Slugging.
Batting Counts More in Long Riki
Than Team Work, Base Running
or Insids Play Some Few Ex
ceptions to the Rule.
Batting is what wins pennants in
spite of the fact that now and then
some fan or baseball expert will argue
that team work or base running or in
side play Is the factor that counts
more than base hits in the winning of
games. The claim is frequently made
that the best batting team often fin
ishes behind teams in the pennant
race that are not noted for their prow
ess with the bat.
Their argument has been good a
few times, but in the majority of cases
the club that leads the league in bat
ting also wins the blue ribbon. It
can't be denied that the team that
makes the most hits gets the chances
to steal the most bases and otherwise
ta-es chances that the weak batting
There are, of course, exceptions- to
the role. The Athletics, winners of
the American League pennant last
season, led all the other teams with
a club batting average or .294 per
cent. The Giants, prospective win
ners of the National League race, led
the league with an average of .271 per
In 1910 the Giants batted some
seven points better than Chicago, yet
the Cubs won the pennant. On the
other hand, the Athletics won out and
led in batting also. In 1909 the bat
ting leaders in the big leagues were
Detroit and Pittsburg, both cham
pions. In 1908 Detroit had the best
batting outfit in the America and won
the bunting, but New York led the
Chicago pennant winners at the bat. -
Detroit led both ways in 1907, but
the champion Cubs were third by four
points in the National League batting
list. Back in 1'06 the Naps carried off
the batting honors by a big margin,
while the White Sox, who took off the
championship, were absolutely last as
hitters, the Naps finishing third. The
Cubs, however, led in victories and
batting that season, only to lose the
world's series to the hitless wonders.
In 1905 the Athletics, second to the
Naps In batting, won the pennant and
then lost the series to the Giants, who
had led the National League batters.
This resume shows that in the last
six years four American League pen
nant winners have also led the league
in batting, while in the National
League three pennat winners have al
so been batting leaders, the cham
pions twice being the runners-up in
UNITED STATES LEAGUE FAST
"Bugs" Raymond and Claude Ritchey
Among the Veterans That Could
Not Stand the Pace.
The United States League is too
fast for some of the veterans most
any league would be. Claude Ritchey
has been released by the Pittsburgh
club of the independent organization
and "Bugs" Raymond has had the our
tain drawn on his efforts to pitch for
Chicago. Another player released by
Pittsburgh is Jack Himes, formerly a
first baseman in the Tri-State and
other minor leagues. '
LEADS TO GRIEF
Atlanta Waiter's Desire to See

Mount Vernon, N. Y. A sudden de

to live for a short time like a million

Lieutenant Silverstein, it is alleged, to
loot the trunks, containing $29,500
worth of Jewelry, belonging to Sol Gil
sey in Atlanta, on April 17. Such was
the confession made by Kaul to Lieu
tenant Silverstein. Kaul, who was a
waiter in the Piedmont hotel, Atlanta,

Gilsey had in his trunl's.
After several hours' of cross-examination
by Silverstein, Kaul broke
down and confessed that he, with
George Wren and George Roddy, all
employed in the Piedmont ' hotel, had
plotted the robbery and had divided
"I have worked hard al my life,"
Kaul, "and I welcomed the chance to
come to New York and see Broadway

aire, if it was only for a week. I
know Mr. Gilsey had a lot of jewelry
and the temptation was too much for
me. That's all."
Kaul was traced to New York,
where he was lost. Silverstein locat

WIRELESS ROUTS A LEOPARD
Operator on Steamer Saves His Life
by Frantically Pounding on
New York. Another use for wire
less has been discovered by James
Pickerell, operator on board the
steamship Vasari the other day.
Among the cargo of the Vaeari was
a leopard. About 400 miles southeast
of Sandy Hook, the Varasl ran into
a terrific gale, and during it the leop
ard escaped from its cage.
Mr. Pickerell was at his key on the
upper deck with the door ajar, when
he glanced out and saw a pair of
gleaming eyes. Without asking leave
the leopard came into the room.
"I did not know what to do," said
Pickerell. "I had no weapon of any

kind. The beast stood there and look
ed me over, and I could see he was
getting ready to have some fun with
me. Accidentally my hand fell on the
key and there was a flash. The beast
stood spellbound as he saw the spark.
Then I saw I was to be 'saved by
wireless' and I pounded the key for all
I was worth. Every time the spark
flew the beast became more frighten
ed until he finally became so scared
he ran from the room."
Pickerell sounded the alarm, and
after an hour's chase all over the ves
sel, the leopard was cornered and
taken back to Its cage, but not until
some of the crew had been scratched.
Wording for Dollars
and Dollars Working
The dollars you work for and save ought to be working
for you. An idle dollar is useless worth nothing. It is the
dollar that works that benefits its owner and the public. Make
your dollars work for you. We show you how to do it.
Bring to us your savings and every wage earner should
save something and we will put them to working for you.
And when they start working they work day and night, every
day in the year. Fortunes are not builded on dollars earned
they are builded on dollars saved and put to work. You
may not save a fortune, but you may easily save enough to
insure ease in old age; enough to provide yourself a home.
Saving is a matter of habit. It is easy to acquire when
systematically undertaken. We have the system. The dollars
you deposit with us earn you four per cent interest, com
pounded semi-annually. Come in and let us explain our
syste mto you a system that has worked successfully for
,. more than a decade, during. which time we have never had
occasion to foreclose a mortgage and have never lost a dollar
through a bad loan. y
