Ilonus knows that Herman Long, onco tho greatest of nil shortstops, then playing with the Boston team, gave hlra tho glove. It Is n fact that Long always used a glove with a big hole In tho cen ter of it. He would buy a new glovo nnd nt onco cut It to pieces, leaving an open spot In tho center nbout twice tho slzo of a baseball. Long handed over one of his old gloves to Wagner. It suited him, and he has used it ever since. The glove now Is a worn out relic, but Hans hangs to it like grim death, no figures it would be the worst luck in tho world for him to lose it. Fnns have time and again watched Wagner take that glovo off his big left hand nnd throw It down toward third base. And they could alwnys seo the hole in it, for it is too big not to bo noticed. Time nnd ngatn it has been asked why Wagner doesn't ? buy a new glove. You ask Hans that question Foolish to Have Many Slab Art I its Whlls Most of Them Sit on the Bench Pilot In Big League Be ginning to Realize Folly of It.

But back of that tliere Is tho ono fact that remains nlways prom inentWagner Is Just as super- & stltious or sentimental as any other ball player, and ho has al ways felt that tho Herman Long glovo has brought him luck.
