Spent Much Time While “Warming
Bench." Watching Other Pitch
ers—Got “Near-Balk".
Whatever success I have had in
baseball is due to two things; first, the
Patience and con3dence in me shown
by President Coniskey and Manager
Jones, and second, hard study and
hard work.
''hen I came into the American
league. I was a raw. green fellow,
strong and willing, but what I didn't
know about baseball would have made
good pitchers out of half a doien fel
lows if it could be scattered aronnd.
rYotn the first both Jones and Comis
key seemed to think that some day I
w-ould be a good pitcher, and it was
their confidence in me that kept me
there. After I got used to the sur
roundings 1 settled down to watch
what the other pitchers were doing
I had sense enough not to ask many
questions, but to keep mv eyes and
ears open and try to learn all I could.
in those days the White Sox had a lot
of smart pitchers, men who did things,
and who used their heads all the time
Every time 1 saw one of th^ra pull of?
something I made a sneak over toward
the clubhouse and tried it myself, to
see whether or not I con’d do it. 1
worked as hard :n those days as ever
a man worked in a mine or a mill. I
was determined 1 was going to be a
pitcher. Contiskey and Jones both
coached me. told me what to do. and
how to do It. but they could not make
n’e a pitcher. A fellow has to do that
for himself. When I began to use the
spit hall I worked like a horse. I
must have pitched two or three games
a day trying to get control and make
that ball go whtre 1 wanted it to go.
Xo one ever watched baseball closer
than I did. When some goo-1 pitcher
for a visiting team was working I
never lost a chance to crawl as close
behind the catcher as possible to see
what he was doing, to study how be
pitched to certain batters and how he
used his curves. I think 1 spent near
ly all of one season trying to get a
balk motion that was not a balk, and
finally 1 succeeded. I defy any um
pire to say honestly that I balk, and
no one can do it without straining
the rules.
I was three years, almost, on the
bench before I got my chance and
when it ratue I was ready. I was as
confident as if I had been pitching all
the time. And then, after I had be

kept hustling and working and trying
to learn more ail the time. I knew
that a fellow must work and Improve
steadily. must Seam something new
or the hatters will Seam to hit what
be has. So I kept at it. and tuacag'V

Farmers Must First Get Away From B*11^ ^ Animal*

Well-Bred Ewes.
_ -
If we make a success of keeping a
Bock of sheep on our farms we must
get away from the common belief that
sheep may be kept as scavengers.
While it Is a fact that sheep will

age to exist on poor pasture, yet this
is only incidental.
If we keep a flock of sheep as scav

be capable of wrestling with many of
the more intricate problems that
would come when the flock was near
ing perfection. A great many fail
with sheep because they undertake to
work with too large » number.
Every sheep looks alike and they
cannot' make an intelligent study of
the individuals that they are selecting
and mating.

It is best to start with a few well
bred ewes and the best ram that can
be found at a reasonable price, and
gradually build up a herd of fine ewes.
In this way the new breeder can
make a closer study of the indiTido
altty of his sheep than he could If te
was working with a larger nutnher.
A mere intelligent selection could te

When we observe the quality and
study the conditions which surround
the average farm flock we do not won
der that the majority of farmers make
a failure of the sheep business.
It is really astonishing to note the
waste of opportunities In the sheep
business. Any Intelligent farmer who
is a student of the present economic
conditions cannot fail to see that the
future of the mutton growing and fat
tening business affords an attractive
outlook for the farmer who is in a

Better Results Could Be Had t£
Farmtrs In Given Locality
Would All Keep One
Breed of Chickens.
The community idea might he
worked a great deal more than tt is
in the purebred poultry business
Better results could be had if the
fanners ta a given locality would all
keep one breed of poultry. If they
would unite on some good, popular,
easy selling breed, they would find
buyers much more easily than a here
each man keeps a different kind of
stock, says the American Cultivator
With dairy cattle this plan has
worked wonderfully well for certain
groups of fanners ia various parts of
the country, in Wisconsin there is a
dairy center, where almost everybody

countr ythere are Jersey and Ayrshire
dairy centers. In all these localities
there are hundreds of pure-bred ani
mals. which can bs seen in a few
1 hours. Such a condition becomes
known all over the country, and buy
ers travel hundreds of miles, knowing
that If they do not find Just what they
want at the first farm they Tisit they
are likely to find it further on in the
same neighborhood.
In southern Rhode Island breeders
in an accidental way kept a native
clasa of fowls which later were known
as Rhode Island Reds When this
breed began to attract notice the re
gion was visited by scores of buyer*,
who picked up every decent colored
bird at fancy prices, putting thousand*
of dollars into the hands of the farm

If fifty farmers in a neighborhood
