PITCHER PERDUE TELL8 OF
"Hub" Perdue of the Boston
Nationals tells of a ball player
who achieved considerable pop
ularity with fans In the south ,
but who was not popular with
his waiter for the simple reason
that no tips ware forthcoming
during five long seasons. One
day Mr. Ball Player and George
bad tbe following conversation :
"You going to be here right
along , George ? "
"All right Then I'll bo flee
ing you. "
The waiter scratched hla kinky
locks and then had an Inspira

"Ah been seeing you for five

THE DIFFERENCE IN
COLLEGE AND BIG
Wliat makes the great difference 1
pitching college or minor league ba
and facing mnjor league batsmen
the fact that In this company the Im
ters Insist on getting the ball over tt
plate. They do not bite at anythhi
that is dished up , soon have a pltc-1
er in the hole , and when ho Is force
to aim It over of course no dlillcult
is experienced In hitting him. Thei
are miy number of no hit games pltcl
ed in college baseball , and yet the"
same pitchers would stand but a slis : !
chance to make peed in a mnji
league. College teams do not hit muc
as a rule , and an ordinary pitcher o
ten looks like a star In that coinpan ;
The fact remains that the collet
pitchers who have made good In U
big leagues have come not from 11 :
big colle-ges , but from some of 11
more remote Institutions.

Washington , July 8. After a the
ough Investigation Into the respectlv
advantages of the several cites nppl ;
ing for the headquarters of the no
division of the railway mall servic
recently authorized by congress , Pos
master General Hitchcock has finall
decided to locate the executive olllce
The new division Is to Include th
states of Nebraska , Colorado and W ;
omlng and will embrace about 14.0C
miles of railway mall service. Denvc
and Cheyenne , as well as Omaha , wer
applicants for the headquarters. M
Hitchcock selected Omaha largely hi
cause it led the other cities in in
portance as a railway center.
Most of the railway lines In the ri
glen embraced by the new dlvlslo
start from Omaha. Most of the heav
mails for this region come from th
east and Omaha , which Is situated o
the eastern boundary of the dlvlsloi
IB the principal gateway. It Is then
fore a decided advantage to have tb
supervisory officers of the division al
this point. More railway mall clorkf
reside at Omaha than elsewhere In
the division , another rcnson why It IE
desirable to have the supervisory of
flees there. Many of the operating of
flees of the railways In the division
have their olllccs at Omaha and thtu
can more readily co-operato with the
railway mall olllcers In matters nf
feeling the transportation of malls.
