"My nerves are all shot to pieces!"
This complaint comes from the tired.
over-wcrked businessman, whose
habitat is the city and the office at

at his office, a dull sickening lull set

an exodus of those who are not tied
jby duty assignments. Mail opened,
routine work transacted until hjs
homing hour, when he folds his tent
and quietly slips away. Overworked
and peevish, he vents his spleen on
I his office associates. The thought

i business world would drift along Just
j the same or perhaps better if his
i desk was accorded a few days' test,
j Never arrive at the point where you
are tempted to exclaim, "My netves

wrap and test your lines, replenish j
missing hooks, flies and other acces
sories. Bid those ieft in the oflce
a cheerful goor-by. Cut out, even
in ought, the sordid routine of |
business. "Hie away," to the lakes
and trout streams, where you can
cuddle up in the lap of Dame Nat ire
and be soothed to test by the whisp
ering breeze, the swaying of the
boughs, the gentle lap and break of
the miniature ground swells, as they [

your fishing efforts will drive busi

Many tired businessmen are unable

cess of American troops fighting in
France to their previous baseball
training, in an editorial which reads:
"Baseball being the national game
of the United States, there never was
any doubt about the Americans show
ing plenty of dash and courage in
war. Not only do the players show
these qualities, but any country is all
right that can produce umpires who
will go right ahead in defiance of two
infuriated nines and a raging multi
These arguments are followed by
the more familiar arguments that fa
miliarity with the devotion to sports
fosters Initiative and ability to keep
cool in unexpected situations.
In the matter of devotion to sports
the paper says there is little to
choose between American and Cana
dian soldiers.
The return to the fol' of the "Old
Master," Christy Mathewson, will be
one of the features of the closing of
baseball at the Cincinnati National
League Park, to-day. There will be
a doubleheader with St. Louis, air
plane flights and plenty of patriotic
speeches and music.

just as it is easier to dope stake
horses than it is to figure selling
platers, we find to-day that doping
the Chicago Cubs and the Boston
Red Sox is harder than it has been
to dope any teams in the last twenty
years. If it is a stake horse against
a selling plater the job is easy, but
here we must figure selling platers
on each side, trying to hold place
with old stake horses and run as a
The figures indicate that the
Red Sox havo eighty-six points the
better of the hitting ability, and
eighty-six points* is a small margin.
We find this offset to a degree by
the fact that the Cubs have the
better fielding team by fifty-eight
, The margin is too small to indi
cate any marked superiority for
either team great enough to enable
either to win on straight class.
It figures that the Chicago team
as team is better in that its
strength is more equally divided and
better scattered through the bat
ting order. We discover, too, that
Mitchell has much the better hit
ting arrangement of his team, so
that the Cubs are liable to score in
any inning, whereas you may figure
safely that the Red Sox, when they
score, must do so with (he head of
the batting order up. In other
words ,the Boston club is "dead"
three innings of each game because
the attacking strength is badly
broken when Agnew and Coffey are
to bat, and the team is much less
liable to maintain a rally than the
This doping is funny business.
The fact is that the Red Sox ought
to outfigure the Cubs by at least
250 points on a season, yet so well
adapted is Mitchell's team to meet
the situation now at hand that his
team looks better. This is solely
because of the left-handed batters,
Ruth, Strunk Mclnnes and Hooper,
while the right-handed batters are
weak wallopers.
This would not he so great a
handicap under ordinary circum
stances, but the fact that Mitchell
has two great left-handed pitchers
primed and ready makes the Red
Sox seem to have less hitting power
than it really possesses.
The left-handed pitchers, of
course, will argue that they hit
lefthanded pitching. I never (have
known a left-handed batter who did
not think he could hit lefthanders,
hut the truth is that, with a few
exceptions, I have never seen a left
handed batter whose average against
left-handed pitching was as high as
against' righthanders and, further,
none of them (excepting Fred
Clarke) ever hits against good left
handers, and the reports from tne
Chicago camp are that Vaughn and
Tyler are good.
The change from the North Side
grounds in Chicago to the south hit
Boston considerably. 1 was com
pelled to add points to Hooper's de
fensive value because of the larger
grounds on which he will play and to
deduct from Ruth's value as a but
ter because of the same facts. All
along I have been afraid that Ruth
would upset the dope and the series
j by punching three or four long flies
! over the short fence in Chicago. Not
r that it makes a bit of difference, but
one hates a series spoiled by nits
which are at best iluky and games
won by nigh flies that would bo
caught on fields of average size.
Whether Boston will be affected by
the schedule which compels the Red
Sox to play three games away from
home or r.ot is doubtful. There are
j times when superstitions of that kind
i do affect ".he work of teams and it
is certain that the Red Sox have
not been a strong road team this
year and have been well nigh invin
cible on their own grounds.
The Cubs are helped by getting
away from tfceirown Held. Theynever
liked the grounds and last year had
an idea thaj. they could not win on
the North Side park. They will play
all their games oft their home field,
which, while it appears unfair, does
not hurt, even if it fails to help them.
After the teams move to Boston the
Red Sox will have the advantage in
every way and the Cubs will be
handicanned somewlgit.
It wouTrl be a fairer arrangement
to play on Bmves field, so that each
team would be oft its own field, but
even so the advantage of the field is
more imaginary than real.
It would be well for the umpires
to look over the Red Sox park care
fully. especially to examine the pitch
er's club before the series starts and
thus avoid argument.
Now that we have studied the
position values of each team and!
have rated them as to figures, the
real task of doping comes. We know
now Just what each man is worth
to his club in his position and against
the pitching he must face. The job
now is to apply those values to actual
play and figure what each man ought
to do in each game. There are these
who doubt whether this will work
out. N I have tried it a dozen times
this season, calculating on a certoln
pitcher working against a certain
team. Then I have taken each man
us the bailing order came and tried
to figure what he ought to do against
that pitcher, merely to test out the
theory of dope. It has worked out
so wonderfully well that I have been
able, in almost every test ease In
which I knew the pitcher and the
batters, to come to the actual num
ber of hits made, to pick the bat
ters who would make them and, in
numerous cases, to pick the exact
innings in which scores would bo reg
That is what I am going to at
tempt in this series, and to-morrow
when I get through figuring, I'll tell
you just what the runs and hits will
be in each game.
But here is a warning: this series
will he decided by errors rather than
by hits.
