ped with regulars, are not as strong
numerically or In general average as
their rivals when 'the Infield squads are
considered as a whole.
The apparent advantage possessed by
the American leaguers will not count
heavily against the Phillies, provided the
two teams are able to go through the
aeries without the necessity of changes
line to accidents or Illness. Should
t mergencles arise, however, where it be-

resources of the Boston club would be

During the most Important portion of
the race for the American League pen

l'arry, second base; Gardner, third base;
Kcott, shortstop. Gainer was frequently

and Janvrin took Scott's place at short.

during the psst season, showing fair
strength at bat and on the field. Iugey,
who la the yuungvst member of the
Phillies clan, has figured almost entirely
this year as a pinch hitter and Is
mt likely to. be called upon to play
unless ail unusual emergency arises.
Notwithstanding the apparent superior
ity In numbers and veteran material of
the Red Box, the playing averages of
the two squads fall to show any great
advantage one way or the other. The
even Boston Inficlders have a combined
batting average of .231 against the Phil

even closer the figures being: Philadel

Fenor Celenrtlo Pereda, one of the mmt

gone to the I'nlted States to select bulls
snd other stock for his estates.
In view tf the phenomenal advance In
the prices for live stock In the Argentini

still greater heights, particularly If the
Ku rope an war continues. It Is assumed
that the estancleros who seek cattle in
the United States will be prepared to pay
well for choice stock.
The cattle show at Palermo, which Is
an annual future and which Is consid
ered an economic barometer of prosper

but the natural pasture, except In t'llvl
Icgcd tones, la very scrubby. Owlns to
these visible disadvantages lands were
sold by the league in the old times, the

stock that could be carried. There are
vast extensions, hundreds of thousands
of leagues, that are still obtainable at
prairie value. The poor settler can do
nothing with these lands lie would
