Winning left hand pitchers are ex

Among all the southpaws Eddie Plank
and Napoleon Rucker stand in a class
by themselves. Of the younger gen

Plank is still an effective hurler, with
his wonderful cross fire delivery. 1
Rucker has the speed, curves, control
and the brain to make a great pitcher,
and despite the fact that he is with
a constant contender for the cellar
title in the National league, every
club has trouble beating the Brooklyn
pitching wizard. There are a few oth

remains the only veteran of promin

count. He is the only southpaw on j
the Athletics who was with that team
in 1911. Krause and Russell were
turned back to the minors.
The Boston Red Sox have Ray Col
lins, but it will take another year to
determine whether he will deserve a
place in the hall of fame among the

Jimmie Sheckard of Chicago Cubs.
One interesting point in connection
with the career of Hans Wagner of
the ‘Pittsburg club was not brought
out recently when he signed his Pirate
contract for 1913.
The “Flying Dutchman” is the old
est player in the Xational league in
point of continuous service. There are
one or two players in the organization
who are a bit older in years than
Honus, but there is none who has
graced the big show as long without
a break as has he.
Wagner signed with the old Louis
ville club on July 19. 1897. The only
other player still in active service who
broke in the same year as Wagner is
Jimmie Sheckard of the Chicago Cubs,

Wagner was secured by Louisville
from Paterson. X. .1. Sheckard broke
into baseball at Portsmouth, Va., in
1896. The next year he was with
Brockton in the Xew England league,
from which club he went to Brooklyn.
In 1897 he did not play enough in the
big league to get a batting or fielding
average. Since then he has been with
Baltimore, Brooklyn and Chicago,

There are two players in the Ameri
can league who have been playing in
fast company longer than either Wag

the Naps and Bobby Wallace of the
Browns. Lajoie broke in with the
Philadelphia Nationals in 1896, taking
part in 39 games that season, after
having played 80 games with Fall
River in the New England league,
where he was a center fielder He re
mained with the Phillies until 1901,
when he jumped to the American
league. The following year he joined
Cleveland, and has been there con

Bobby Wallace played his first ma

National league in 1895. He was in
the Forest City until 1899, when he
went to the St. Louis Nationals. In
1907 he appeared first in the Ameri

Had Been Buried in the Sand
Forty Years With Its
$30,000 Treasure.
“You must not be discouraged. Ab
ner," spoke Mrs. Waldron in her pa
tient, sympathizing way.
“I'm not, mother,” was the prompt
but infinitely weary response. "It is
not the loss of business, home and
friends. What worries me is the fact j
that after all my sacrifices, I shall
not be able to pay my creditors in
full. It is a pretty heavy load for
an old man like me to carry."
"Remember the promise: ‘On whom
God's hand restetli, hath God at his
right hand.’ ”
Abner Waldron tried to smile brave
ly, kissed the dear old patient face
of his helpmeet, and left the house
for his accustomed stroll. It had
ceased to seem like home for a week
past, for it was scheduled to follow
the rest of his possessions and go to
wards paying his debts.
He had done very well in a business
way, until a smooth, smart city pro
moter had come to Albion. His fa- 1
ther, James Waldron, the banker, had
come to the little Michigan town 50
years since. He had left the son
some money, and Abner had built up a
profitable manufacturing business.
Then the promoter had filled his mind
with expansive ideas. He had branch
ed out, the sleek schemer had reaped
a rich harvest, and then—failure.
Abner had turned over every penny !
he had in the world. It paid up every^
thing except a few thousand dol- ;
lars. Mrs. Waldron had in her own
right a small farm in an adjoining
county. They had decided to go there,
and were now on the eve of depart
"It's the older children, Richard and
Maud, that I care about,” the thought- ■
ful bankrupt had to'd his close friends.
"The boy can earn his own living, the ;
girl has a fine education, and can
do the same. But you see, both are !
engaged. I expected to give them a
good start in life. Now, the weddings
must be postponed. It seems as though
my foolish ideas of becoming a mil
lionaire have driven happiness away
from everybody who had anything to
do with me.”
Abner evaded meeting his neigh
bors, and took a lonely route out of
town. He was soon among the sand
hills. He wanted to think, plan out j
resignation for the present, content- ,
ment for the future. It was a great ,
sand district about Albion. Lying
along the lake shore, air currents had
piled up greet yellow mountains of the j
shifting particles. One wind storm
would build up a great hill in a night.
It Was a Great, Lumbering, Old-Fash
ioned Vehicle.
A second from a contrary direction
would obliterate this nature-building !
within an hour. Abner got in among
the dunes, and sat down amid as
lonely and desolate t. scene as could !
well be imagined.
The bleak environment chilled him, j
but at the same time quieted. Alone
and undisturbed, he reviewed all the
past He bravely faced the future, j
After all, it would be rest and peace ]
after turmoil and strife. The small j
er children would be happy ane' ;
comfortable, and the little farm I
might bring in enough to help him to
pay eventually the debts that harassed I
his sensitive nature like a millstone
about his neck.
A cheerful reaction took place in
Abner's mind, as he reflected that i
after all his was not the worst condi- j
tion in the world. He had a loyal, |
helpful wife and loving, obedient chil- !
dren. From a more comfortable atti j
tude of mind his thoughts idly drift
ed, and he fell to dreaming over events 1
in his past life. Then in a whimsical 1
way a story of the long ago came to
his memory.
His father had been well nigh ruin
ed right among these treacherous sand
hills nearly 40 years since. The event
was the sensation of the hour through
the whole district. James Waldron
had removed his little country bank
to Albion from Sankatuck in the
next county. Over $30,000 in gold
had been carried in locked iron boxe*
in an old stage coach* Its driver had
lost his way among the sand hills, a
great storm had come up, and he wa«
blown from his seat against a rock
and rendered insensible.
\\ hen he came back to conscious
ness the stage coach, the horses, the
treasure, had disappeared. There was
a search all over the country. It
brought no results. With difliculty the
banker met the great loss. It was
generally decided that robbers had
driven the treasure away, stage and
all, and no trace of the outfit was
ever found.
The sky had darkened while Abner
sat dreaming. A cyclonic gust nearly
swept him off his feet as he got up
to make a start for home. A blinding
rain of sand cut his face. Abner
walked briskly forward, but several
times in his up and down hill
progress he went headlong as the
sand slides took him off his fating
"This is getting serious!” he ex
claimed, as he slid nearly the length
of a hill, to land in a gully between
two towering mountains of sand. He
tried to reascend. It was like breast
ing an avalanche. The cut was filling
up fast. At one time the sand was
up to his knees.
"Why! I shall be engulfed! It is
like quicksand!" he reflected in 'avid
His situation was truly critical. He
knew that unless he got out of what
was a natural funnel for the tornado
air currents, he was lost. He strug
gled on, came to a turn in the gully,
and dimly made out a slanting mass of
gnarled tree roots. Abner ran to it,
slipped, a cavity was revealed, and he
dropped into darkness fully 20 feet.
The breath was nearly knocked out
of his body, and it was some time be
fore he could arise to his feet. He
stood on a sandy foundation, appar
ently of some large sheltered void.
It was so dark he could not make out
its extent. Groping along, he land
ed against a post. Then it occurred
to him that he had come upon one of
the many sand submerged houses
swallowed up in some tornado years
before. Once he had stepped into a
chimney, all that was left visible of
one of these engulfed structures.
Abner was a smoker. He therefore
carried matches, and feeling in bis
pocket for one, drew it forth and
flared it. Then, transfixed, he strain
ed his gaze, wondering if some Alad
din touch had suddenly created a fairy
scene for deluded senses.
Before him was an open shed sup
ported by posts. Back of it was a
great, lumbering, old fashioned ve
hicle. Attached were the skeletons
of a team of horses. Thrilled, amazed,
in almost a shout the electrified ob
server gasped out:
"The lost stage coach!”
Yes, it could be no other—it was
no other. Like lightning through his
bewildered brain ran a theory eluci
dating all the mystery of 40 years and
To this shelter on the night the
bank was moved the horses had
strayed, to be enveloped, swallowed
up in the great winding wreaths of
sand, pas; rescue and sight until now.
More matches, a closer inspection,
and there, intact, just as they had
been originally stowed, were the iron
boxes. Abner found the bank treas
ure—his by right of discovery, his by
right of legal inheritance.
So all the dark Clauds passed away.
Drooping root ends enabled the ad
venturer to regain the open air when
rhe sand storm was over, and the fam
ily roof was saved, and soon there were
two joyful weddings.

Two Historic Examples to Show That
This Is by All Means a Dan
gerous Practice.
In the titles of books lie at times
pitfalls for the unwary. An almost
classic example was afforded by John
Ruskin. when, in 1851, he wrote a
short pamphlet on the text. ••There
shall be one fold and one shepherd.”
This, which treated of the reunion of
the Protestant churches, was publish
ed as “Notes on the Construction of
Sheepfolds”—a title which, appealing
rather to the agricultural than to the
clerical mind, insured a brisk circula
tion among farmers—those of the bor
der especially—many of whom ordered
a copy in the hope that they might
glean therefrom some original hints
and ideas that would be of use to them
in their calling.
The bucolic mind, indeed, would
seem singularly predisposed to jump
to hasty conclusions, for English far
mers followed but in the wake of their
Irish brethren—or rather of their Irish
brother, who, an enthusiast on the sub
ject of cattle breeding, greeted with
delight the appearance of a little vol
ume by Maria Edgeworth, bearing the
title, “Essay on Irish Bulls.” Although
the name of the authoress was to him
unknown, the contents would doubt
less, he considered, be well worth the
few shillings he so willingly dis
bursed; but, alas! although the spir
ited engraving of rampant Taurus that
prefaced the essay gave delightful
promise, he had but to read a few
lines to find that he had become pos
sessed of a treatise, not on bovine
ruminants, but on that particular
“blunder which is commonly supposed
to be characteristic of the Irish na

Would Not Be an Actress.
Little Mary, aged sweet fifteen and
stage struck, laid down her knit
ting with a sigh one night and
"Ah, mother, how I'd like to be one
of those great actresses or singers on
the stage!”
“Would you?" said the mother un
easily. “I don’t know. It's an un

"Why is it?” asked the daughter.
“It must be,” said the mother.

Library Without Light.
The great national library of
France, the Bibliotheque Nationale,
in Paris, has a splendid site, 44
miles of shelves and 3,000,COO vol
umes to fill them, but in the winter
that vast store of learning and intel
lectual delight is nearly useless, be
cause the library has no artificial
light, and its books are issued to
readers and students only in the mid
dle of the short days.
When Time and Labor Unnecessarily
Consumed in Transporting Prod
ucts There Is Big Waste.
If the public could be convinced
that it is economy to begin with
fundamentals the problem of progress
in every line of social endeavor would
be solved.
At present the sole remedy for
many industrial evils lies in the bet
terment of roads.
Manifestly, when time is unneces
sarily consumed and labor wasted in
transportation of products to market
there is a fundamental waste. One
instance will serve as an illustration.
A man loaded his wagon early one
morning with a bale of cotton and a
few bags of the loose product. He
lived twenty-two miles from town.
The roads in that section are better
than the average, but it took him un
til nightfall to reach the selling point.
He and his half-grown son, who ac
companied him, spent’ the night in
town, paying the expense of lodging,
meals and keep for the team. The
second day was spent in negotiations
for the sale of the cotton and the pur
chasing of a few necessaries. They
arrived on the third day late in the
afternoon, having lost practically

chinery, for additional fencing, or. in
fact, anything that would enhance the
value of the place.
If this farmer had raised small mar
ketable crops—which he didn’t—he
could not afford the time or give up
the use of his team to take them to
the nearest point. A few sweet pota
toes, cotton and corn were the sole
products raised.
If his place had been mortgaged
for the building of a pike or trolley
line connecting him with a market
there would be hope of paying out.
As conditions are, he gets poorer and
more hopeless every year.
In Recent Message to New York
Legislature He Laid Down Law
in No Uncertain Terms.
Governor Sulzer of New York is s
road booster of the right type. In his
recent message to the New York
legislature he ’’laid down the law” to
the legislators in no uncertain terms
pointed out defects in New York's
road laws and pronounced the doom
of the spoilsmen who had been fat
tening on the people's money, says
the Southern Good Roads. In his
message he paid this great tribute to
good roads:
“We know that good roads, like good
streets, make habitation along them
most desirable; they enhance the
value of farm lands, facilitate trans
portation, and add untold wealth tc
the producers and consumers of the
country; they economize time, give
labor a lift and make millions In
money; they save wear and tear and
worry and waste; they beautify, the
country and bring it in touch with
the city; they aid the social and re
ligious and educational and industrial
progress of the people; they make
better homes and happier firesides;
they are the avenue of trade and the
agencies of speedy communication;
they mean the economical transporta
tion of marketable products—the
maximum burden at the minimum
cost; they are the ligaments that
bind the country together in thrill
and industry and intelligence and
patriotism; they promote social in
tercourse, prevent intellectual stagna
tlon and increase the happiness and
prosperity of our producing masses;
They contribute to the greatness cl
the city and the glory of the country;
give employment to our idle work
men, distribute the necessaries of
life—the products of the fields and
the forest and the factories—encour
lge energy and husbandry, inculcate
love for our scenic wonders, and
make mankind better and happier.”

The close ties of friendship exist

by Premier Robert L. Borden, of Can

silent but eloquent testimony to the
mutual confidence and respect of the
two nations. Time will shortly place
upon the brow of each nation the lau
rel of one hundred years of peace. It
matters not so much as to the form
of the outward celebration, but let us
hope that its full significance may
sink deep into the hearts of both na
tions, and that, whether north or south
of the boundary, we may stand with
bowed and reverent heads, offering
grateful thanks for the Divine blessing
of peace, and earnest prayers that in
the century to come, mutual confidence,
good-will and respect may truly ani
mate the ideals and aspirations of both
Referring to the natural resources
possessed by the United States and
Canada, particularly along the St.
Lawrence River, the premier urged
that they be “preserved and developed
for the people.”
' Governor Sulzer predicted that the
“Great Canadian Northwest is designed
to become, before long, the granary of
North America.”
“Many of our best citizens, I regret
to say," said the governor, ‘are leav

“We should extend to them a help

progress. Instead of closing our doors
by tariff barriers against these coun

we should open them wider and do
everything in our power to facilitate
closer commercial relations. We want
