Hardly a day passes but what one
hears a fan say that so and so is going
to pitch to-day and that he will win
or lose, as the case may be. To one
who Is not acquainted with the facts,
the average set of baseball followers
would think that these prognosticates
know all about it. But in many cases
they are wrong.
Why are some pitchers successful
against one team and a rank failure
against anotner? Take the case of
Lefty Lelfleld, of the Pirates, against
Boston, since the left-hander haa be
come a leaguer. He has pitched ten
games against Tenny'a men and won
nine of them. Five gamea he won by
shutting them out He haa never lost
a game In Boston. Mathewson, a
couple of years ago, won ten straight
games, all he twirled against the Pi
rates. This year Lelfleld has defeated
St. Louis six times, and St. Louis is
"Three-Fingered" Brown has pitched
against every team In the National
league this year, and Pittsburg was
the only team he has found any
trouble to defeat he has pitched in
three full games against the Pirates
and has won but one of them. He had
no trouble to win four from New York
and the same number from Cincin
nati. Vic Willis has won both games
he has pitched against New York, but
has lost three to Chicago. He has
also beat Brooklyn three times, but
could not win from Philadelphia.
Phllllppe, who had not won a game
from Chicago for years, has won two
out of three from them this season.
Ames has won but one game from the
Pirates, his first game in the league,
when he defeated Scanlon, both start
ing the same day in the National
league. He was defeated last season
for the first time after his winning
streak, and received his only coat of
whitewash of the season from Pitts
burg. In the American league one can find
Just as complicated cases as In the
older league. Why Is it that Donovan
has not pitched against Chicago,
Walsh against Detroit, Killian against
Philadelphia, Dygert - against - Clever
land, Patten against Cleveland, etc.?
Donovan has won four times from
Philadelphia and three from New
York, while all he could do was to
split even with Cleveland. Jobs can
win from every team except Phila
delphia, while Clarkson has defeated
the team under Mack's management
twice. Walsh has won five games
from St Louis; still he could do no
better than break even with Boston,
a team below the Browns in the stand
ing. Plank, who has won two games
he has pitched against Detroit, has
lost the only pair he has been on the
rubber in against St Louis. Waddell,
who haa won both games from Chi
cago, he has pitched,' has won one
from Cleveland in three and one from
Detroit in four trials. Doc White, who
took Detroit into camp four times, has
been able to win but one from New
York out of four.
Why is It that Young could win all
his four games against New York but
could only win one out of three from
Philadelphia? Mullin has no trouble
to win from Cleveland, but finds all
other teams, even St Louis and Wash
ington, hard to beat Lelbhardt has
been able to break even in four games
with Chicago, but cannot win from
Philadelphia, who Is fourth In the
race. Case Patten won two and lost
two ' with Chicago, but lost all three
he has pitched against Detroit. This
rule can be found all through the
table and it is one of thp reasons that
baseball Is so popular it Is so uncer

TEN YEARS OF PAIN.
Unable to Do Even Housework Be
cause of Kidney Troubles.
Mrs. Margaret Emmerich, of Clin
ton St., Napoleon, O., says: "For
fifteen years I was a great sufferer
from kidney , trou
bles. My back pained
me terribly. Every
turn or, move caused
pains. My eyesight
was poor, dark spots
appeased before me,
and I had dizzy
spells. For ten years
I could not do housework, and for two
years did not get out of the house.
The kidney secretions were irregular,
and doctors were not helping ire.
Doan's Kidney Pills brought me quick
relief, and finally cured me. They

Used Ink for Bluing.
"One can never'be too careful about
apparently harmless articles setting
about the house," said a housewife the
other day. "Not long ago my husband
brought home one of those big tall bot
tles of ink from the office. It had got
to be such a nuisance buying one of
the small five-cent bottles every time
we ran out of ink, that he said he
would bring home a supply.
"About a week after that I got a
new maid, and when she did the. wash

Starch were used. In order to get the

beauty and fineness of the fabric is

Defiance Starch, as it can be applied

BABY TORTURED BY ITCHING.
Rash Covered Face and Feet Would
Cry Until Tired Out Speedy
Cure by Cuticura.
"My baby was about nine months
old when she had rash on her face and
feet. Her feet seemed to irritate her
most, especially nights. They would
cause her to be broken in her rest, and
sometimes she would cry until she was
tired out. I had heard of so many
cures by the Cuticura Remedies that
I thought I would give them a trial.
The improvement was noticeable in a
few hours, and before I had used one
box of the Cuticura Ointment her feet
were well and have never troubled her
since. I also used it to remove what
is known as 'cradle cap' from her
head, and it worked like a charm, as it
cleansed and healed the scalp at the
same time. Mrs. Hattie Currier,

Architects and Closets.
An architect, eays a writer, com
plains that women have a mania for
closets and that when a woman is al
lowed any liberty in the matter she
changes his whole architectural plan
in order to make room for them. This,
he says, makes him a laughing stock
among his fellow architects. This is
very interesting, but why do architects
make plans if not to make every effort
themselves to secure conveniences? A
house may be architecturally perfect
and yet not fit to live in, and it certain
ly is not if there is not closet room
