MORGAN IS A CLOUTER
Washington’s Second Baseman
Taught How to Hit.
Manager Griffith Takes Danville Boy
in Hand and Teaches Him to Bat
—Shows Great Improvement
in His Stick Work.
The improvement of Ray Morgan as
a batter is one ot the greatest things
connected with the performances of
the Nationals of 1912.
Last year the little lad from Dan
ville. Va.. was a light sticker. Jim
my McAleer despaired bis ever shin
ing in the big league on that ac
count. Rut Jimmy didn't know- how
to teach the boy better form at the
bat. It remained for Clark Griffith
to do that.
At Charlottesville Morgan was
given long and careful instruction on
! hov to stand, how- to swing, how- to
get away from the plate and the kind
of a bat he should use. It was all
new to the lad. Never before had
an;- one tried to teach him. He had
always hit in his own natural style,
good enough in its way. too. but not
good enough for the big show.
\\ hen the season started Morgan
was only learning how- to use all his
weight against the ball, how to pick
out the good ones and how to get
av.a> from the plate. He was learn
ing rapidly, however, and when the
opportunity came for him to take his
I isce in the regular line-up day after
day, he was ready.
Morgan should be one of the team's
ieauing nitters if he continues his
present work with the willow Thor
oughly impregnated with the doctrine
being taught the team by Griffith, he
believes he can hit any pitching served
up tr> him. Furthermore, he is doing
it and has been doing it all along.
The Baltimore boy is using the
proper size of stick now He swings
with all his strength and weight and
Is one of the longest hitters on the
team His great speed enables him
to get the most out of his long drives
to the garden, and as a sliding run
net only Moeller and Milan begin to
compare with him.
"Morgan is a natural hitter, that's
all," smiles Griffith, when talking ol
his young second baseman. "He is
using all his ability now and should
he a success all along As soon as he
learns the fine points about playing
the bag. he will be one of the best
second basemen in the game, mark
me. one of the best in the game."
TO RETAIN MANAGER DAHLEN
President Ebbets of Brooklyn Sets at
Rest Rumors Concerning Leader
of His Team.
To set at rest various rumors in
volving the management of The Brook
lyns next year President Ebbets made
this positive statement:
Dahlen will not be supplanted. He
has done excellent work with the ma
terial in hand In three years he has
j ripped out the deadwood. the drinkers
and the trouble makers and has built
up an entirely new organization. He
knows e\ery angle of the game and
the Brooklyns are bound to improve.
"It would be an injustice to remove
Dahlen from the management just at
| a time when it seems certain that he I
w ill get good results. Dahlen is not to
blame for the accidents and illness
tnat have crippled us from time to
time. He has been patient and pains
taking and I intend to place increased
[ confidence in his ability ”

Queues and Hair Supply.
Consul General Anderson, stationed
at Hongkong, has recently taken pains
to correct the widespread impression
that the growing tendency on the part
of Chinamen to dispense with their
queues will have the effect ot making
false hair cheap. It appears that the
queues when cut are never sold, but
are always preserved for burial with
the owner. Mr. Anderson says that
this is an absolute rule throughout
South China, as well as in all other
parts of the country from which he
has been able to secure information
o" the subject.
LAWS NEED REVISION
I-abor day! Its celebration, its pa
rades and Its meetings are important

ment of our coun
try and the pro
ments of her peo
ple. It is the spe
cial occasion when
view the history j
and struggles of
the past. that. '
like milestones, j
mark the on
ward march to !
of life and labor.
Particularly is it
in New England with all her
hallowed meroqries and traditions,
the movement for industrial up
lift should find expression among
the descendants of the men
whose sacrifices and achievements
contributed so much to the establish
ment of political independence and
religious freedom on this continent.
While the problem of labor is one af
fecting all sections of our country and
all the countries of the world, yet we •
may look to the east, to the men ol
New England, for a voice that, like
that of the immortal Revere, shall I
warn us of our danger and point the
way to safety.
There are at this time many aspects
of the labor question that deserve and
demand immediate consideration; not
the least of these being the revision ol
our laws so as to make them compati
ble with the changes in our social and
industrial life that have followed the
momentous development of machinery
and methods of production.
Wage earners must take the initia
tive in any movement calculated tc
promote their own interests or to pro
tect them against the evils which have
grown out of the combination and con
solidation of capital; they must be
both courageous and patient, aggres
sive yet prudent; they must build
their organizations on sound founda
tions and conduct them on business
lines, and it is highly important to the
security of the t^age-earners and the
safety of society that women workers
shall be organized, and thus protectee
against the demoralizing influences
that have always attended overwork
excessive hours and under-nutrition.
The exhortation of Wendell Philips
cannot be too strongly emphasized:
• Organize and stand together! Let the
nation hear a united demand from th«
Forty-four states have adopted an
age limit for the employment of chil

hours for a working week for children.

A Colossal Scheme.
The great highway of the commerce
of the future will be the Pacific ocean.

coast of America from Bering sea to

the isles of the ocean, to link with this

BLUEJAY LIVES IN WOODS’
Hawks, Owls and Other Birds Are
Teased and Tormented by
These Noisy Birds.
The bluejay likes best to live in
thick woods, but it often comes into ,
open fields, orchards and near dwell
ings in search of food. When it dis
covers you it assumes a proud and
angry air of conceit and defiance.
The bluejay's upper parts are pur
plish-blue. The lower parts are pur
plish-gray. The wings and tail are
bright blue with black bars. The tail
feathers are tipped with white. It
has a crested head
The bluejay builds its nest about
twenty feet above ground. It is made
of twigs and fine roots. From four to
six eggs are laid. They are of a
greenish drab color flecked with
Doubtless the bluejay helped to
name itself, as its common utterance
is a long drawn, "jay, jay. jay.” This
cry, with the bright blue color, bas
given it its name.
While the jay sings no song it is
able to imitate the calls of other
birds, by which means it often at
tracts them. It likes to tease and
torment the owl and especially the lit
tle sparrow hawk. This is done by
imitating the cry of a wounded bird,
which draws the hawk near. Then
several jays will dart at the hawk
squealing and frolicking about in
great glee. Sometimes the play ends
in a tragedy, for the hawk pounces
upon one of them, to the dismay of
the others. lays may be caged and
tamed like crows and some writers
say they can be taught to utter words.

Barber Shops in China.
Since the Chinese revolution a
great many Chinese have had their
queues cut off, and this had led to the
opening of a large number of barber
shops throughout the far east wher
ever Chinese are located, says an ex
change. Several progressive business
men of Singapore, anticipating this,
imported a large number of Amer
ican barber chairs, and they are now
unable to get supplies quickly enough.
