ONE-ARMED FIELDER MAKES SINGLE ERROR
One of the Michigan leagues has a j
team that is managed by a blind man.
*ho. without seeing, can tell what is
;oing on in a game. While this seems
•emarkable, the playing of Eddie Ash.
vho was the star outfielder of the Wa
>ash college team this year seems
core so. for Ash has only one arm.
Ash made only one bobble all year
lis home is in Indianapolis, and It
eas his second year in the right gar
len for the scarlet. He played two
tears for the Manual Training team
n Indianapolis. Lots of fielders are
rheered for their reunning one-hand
matches, but their work cannot be re
garded as so sensational after all when
it Is known that Ash regularly accepts
the most difficult chances with his
sne hand. He is a fairly good batter
Mid has been known to knock home
runs with the one arm which seems to
have the strength of two.
There have been other one-armed
Mayers, and some ot the older fans
may recall "One-Armed Daly." who
played professional ball a score of
rears ago. It was reported some time
ago that Clark Griffith had signed a
ene-arme-d pitcher whom his scouts
round In Texas.
W hich Is the more superstitious, a
tailor or a ball player? Anyone who
has studied both types will quicklv
answer, the ball player.
It is probably true that no other
ilass of men anywhere aproaches the
tailor and the player in this particu
lar psychelogical subject. They are !
superstitious in everything they do.
and manv things they don t do.
Whoever heard of a sailor who
would willingly set sail from port on
Fridav* Whoever heard of a ball play
er who didn't go through some rites
and ceremonies before going to bat. or
l-efore returning to the bench, or be- 1
fore taking his usual place on the
field- It's all superstition, a relic of
j *unaer ^ntn Tner see
Sheckard of the Cubs, go to bat wha?
that small white ball on the top of
his cap Is. N'o other player on the
team has that particular distinction.
It Is nothing more or less than a piece
of gum. When "'Jimmy" Sheckard
wears that piece of gum he believes
that he will be able to hit better. Or I
at least he did believe so. When he
played In the world series against the
Sox three years ago and failed to
make even one hit, he removed that
gum the following year. He started
right out on a batting streak.
So sometimes he wears that gum
and sometimes he doesn’t, all depend- i
lng on the way the special deity of i
that gum rules Then there is -Kid” i
Gleason, for years and years second !
; baseman of the Phillies. He wouldn't '
any more think of returning to the
bench without walking in front of the
fplate than he would fly. He makes a
wide circuit In going through the cere
monies. but he does It in such a mat
ter of fact way that ninety-nine out of
hundred fans never notice him.
Why does he do this? Superstition,
nothing else In ordinary walks of
life Gleason Is a rational, sane be
ing. Hut in baseball he must take
that walk. He has done it for so many
years that it has come to be an in
stinct with him. If you should ask
him why. it’s almost certain that he
would say: “Always do It.” Whether
it helps his batting is a subject of de
bate. but he never fails to take those
few extra steps.
Mall players are a fastidious lot
when it comes to the paraphernalia
they use in a game. Certain kinds of
shoes must he made, most of them
having their shoes made to a special
last that Just suits them; then there
are their gloves, and the makers of
these have a special department to
turn out the various styles demanded,
almost every player in the big leagues
having a glove named for him. which
Is ordered and made accordingly.
But it is the bat over which the
player passes most of his time Tic e
*as when a big leaguer passed all his
winter seasoning bats for use in the
nest campaign, selecting the finest
piece ot wood he could secure, dry
ing it all winter above the kitchen
stove, and taking it down daily to
polish it. Each man wants his bat
turned just so, the handle a certain
diameter, with so much wood in the
heavy end: it must balance just to
suit him when he swings it: but most
important of all is the driving power
Some bats that are beautiful to be
hold and which suit the player exact
ly as to size and balance prove the
most miserable kind of deceptions and
snares because when they come to hit
the ball there is no "drive” in them.
They seem punk and do not have the
spring in them that makes the ball
travel when hit square on the nose.
Pete Crowning was one of those old
time players who loved his bat first
and the world afterward. He passed
more time working over his big
bludgeons than at any other vocation
in life And he felt amply repaid. ;
when, the next season, he found he
had one or two that exactly suited
Billy ifeim 11 urn was another who
loved his bats. His kitchen in his New
England home was always full of them
during the winter months and he han
dled them like pets. He taugh Fred
Tenney the same reverence for the
war club and Fred started out in the
same wav. But Tenney has charged
now. and most of the modern players
are different too. though they still de
mand bats that exactly suit them in
balance and build as well as driving
power, but they let the factories do
the petting and polishing, choosing
oniy to go over the bunch submitted
for trial and picking out the ones that

1ST BAT, URGES HARTSEL
VETERAN OUTFIELDER OF THE
SAYS THESE QUALITIES
ESSENTIAL IN WIN
By “TOPSY* HARTSEL.
•Copyright. by Joseph R Rowtew)
The biggest thing in wincing games.
*s I see Jl is patience and coolness at
the bat. It always has been my theory
that the team which has players who
can get on the bases wins whether it
is the best team or rot. 1 believe a
team of good waiters, who are patient
and who do not hit or strike at bad
bails will beat the heaviest hitting
teams steadily. U you will look back
over the pennant-winning teams of the
last JO years you will find that they
were the waiting teams, and that they
won their pennants by getting bases
on balls rather than by hitting. They
got the runners on bases, tied up the
other teams' infielders, and then h.t
and the chances of their hits going
safe were doubled.
There is another thing—almost all
the pennant winning teams have had
a good waiter to lead off the batting
list and get on the bases, and then
• he third and fourth batters were the
heavy hitters. These are only my
ideas, but 1 thick sometimes there is
not half enough waiting in the modern
game, and there is a lot of bad hit
ting, or hitting with bad judgment,
especially In the tight places. This is
because the team that is threatening
to score gets overanxious and the bat
ters are too eager to hit. and so give
the pitcher an advantage when it
ought to be the other way around.
1 think the best advice 1 can give
young players about how- to win. or
how 1 think they should win. is that
instead of trying to win a game them
selves they let the other side lose iL
There are many games lost because a
team gets too eager to force the game
and falls down on the attack just
when the other side is exploding and
threatening to throw away the game.
A player who is cool ar.d patient, and
who can stop himself from swinging
at bad bails, will let a wild pitcher
pitch wild and wear himself out.
There is not much excuse for hitting
at bad balls except when the hit and
run signal is passed, and then, of
course, the batter is forced to hit. no
matter what is pitched. That is one
vital point in batting. A batter al
ways should swing at the ball as hard
“Topsy” Hart set.
as he can when a hit and run play tm
tried, even if he know he cannot hit It.
If he does not swing he allows the
catcher to run in three or four feet
to meet the bail and gives him a much
better chance to throw out the runnar.
A batter should study the pitcher at)
the time and watch for signs of wild
ness or overanxiety. If he sees a
pitcher losing his temper or getting
excited he can change tactics on him
all the time and outguess him at least
half the time.
He ougnt atso to watch the posi
tions of the fielders, to see where they
are shifting and how I have seen
many games won because the bat
ters guessed from the way the field
ers were moving what ball was to be
pitched, and were prepared to hit
that kind of ball.
Fielding is more a matter of speed,
practise and experience. A man ei
ther must have great speed or a lot of
experience to play the outfield well.
If he has the speed he can cover up a
lot of mistakes while he is gaining
knowledge of where and how batters
Burns Sold to Wheeling.
Joe Rurns has been sold by Cindn
uati to Manager Rill Phillips of the
Wheeling team. Rurns needs regular
work and will be glad of the chance
to play every day. Rurns leaves the
National league with a batting and
base running average of 1.000. He
went to bat once, got a single and
stole a base.
It has been suggested that at least
one special cell and the nerve fiber |
connecting it with the brain may be I
affected by each different scent-pro- ;
ducing substance. But. as one scien- !
list has observed, it would be a some
what serious stretch of imagination
to suppose that for each new scent
j of a substance yet to emerge from the
retort of the chemist there is in wait
ing a special nerve terminal in the
It Is more (reasonable to suppose
i that all the hairs of the ofactory cells
are affected by every sense-producing
substance, and that the different qual
ities of scent result from difference
in the frequency and form of the vi
brations transmitted through those
cells to the brain.
According to this view, there is
something in musk, something in the
rose, something in the violet and the
lilac, something in every substance
which produces a smell either agree
able or offensive—that is. able so to
affect the hairs and cells of the olfac
| tory machinery of the nose as to set
their connecting nerves In vibration;
and the rate of this vibration varies for
every different substance.

CARiNG tOR H.UORS
MUCH WORK TO KEEP THE HARO
WOOD VARiETY IN ORDER.
They Are Reecgr-ised as the Best for
the Average House. But Daily
Wiping and Almost Constant
Polishing Are Necessary.
Fndoubtedly the best Boors for the
average house are hardwood. but to
kep them in order requires work. Daily
wiping and polishing are necessary,
but the beauty resultant more than re
pays the trouble, and such Boors, un
less they are abused, wear well. Tfceir
expensiveness differs according as to
whether or not they are parquetry or
plain. If drawing and living room
Boors can be finished with a boric*
they are more effective, but even in
those places design is not necessary.
What is required is perfect position of
the boards, that is. close together nn4
smooth, so they can be kept In the
highest state of poltsh and cleanliness.
When a house that is occupied the
entire year is fitted with hardwood
Boors the problem of carpeting ia
solved, for in the winter rugs can be
used, while in the summer the boards
may be left uncovered. The latter ef
fect Is cool and pretty.
For general durability there are cov
erings which conceal unfinished floor
ing and are more easily kept clean
than carpeting. In these days of fre
quent moving, when housekeepers do
not like to have carpets and mauirgs
cut to fit rooms, rugs of endless variety
and material come in prices which are
equally varied. A wilton or tapestry
carpet cut like a large rug and fin
ished with a wide border is practical in
many diuerent places, and a rough floor
may have a border stained to make a
For summer, or to use all the year In
bedrooms, mats of straw are extremely
pretty. They come in straw colored
grounds with designs of various sixes.
They wear well and are easily kept
Nothing could be prettier than some
of the hand woven rag rugs. They
have the merit of washing, when soiled
and have sufficient warmth to be good
for the winter and yet light enough
for summer wear. In many summer
houses they are used exclusively In
the upstairs rooms and large ones are
exceedingly nice in dining rooms. They
can be woven to order and for dining
rooms round ones showing a border of
contrasting color are both effective and
Rag carpeting also comes now by the
>&. d and by many persons is preferred
to matting because of the way dust
sifts through the latter. Rag stair car
peting Is extremely pretty.
A floor covering which has ccrk In its
composition has come into favor for
bed and billiard rooms as well as din
ing rooms. It is rather thick and has
some "give" and may be washed with
soap and water as a bare floor. It Is
the common covering in many English
nurseries owing to its hygienic quali
ties. The stuff comes in only a few
plain colors and may serve as a tack
grounu for rugs.
To successfully carve meat one must
know how to control the knife. When
carving a slice of meat, after the first
incision has been made, the angle at
which the knife is held must never be
altered, or a jagged slice will be the
The cut should be direct, sharp ar.d
incisive. The saw-like motion should
not enter into the operation.
As a rule the knife should be held
firmly but applied lightly, so that tou
much juice will not be squeezed out
from the meat. By using the point
of the knife lightly as a wedge and the
fork as a lever, even a big fowl may
be easily jointed, provided the carver
is aware of howr the joint is exactly
situated and held together.
Salmon. Epicurean Style.

when boiling put in two pounds of
salmon to boil till ready. Take out
the fish, remove the skin from it. coat
with melted butter and fine bread
crumbs and set in a hot oven to brown
a little. Meanwhile reduce the liquor
in which it was boiled, then strain it
and thicken with flour and butter, sea

constipation and belching was such
that I finally brought myself to leave
* then the question was. what shonld
we use for the morning drink? Tea
was worse for us than coffee; choco

milk was not liked very well, and hot

would not publish this letter, at least
not over my name."
