young man who kept Chance's outfit
going when all the veterans wero hav
ing a hard time of it.
Hussoll Ford Is the sensation of the
American leaguo this season. Many
critics say he will be the best In the
junior organization next year.
Cleveland was lucky In procuring
good pitching talent. There are Hark
ness. Kocftner. Fanwell and Mitchell.
In Stroud and Pc-noll Detroit has a
pair of very passable shooters. There
have been no pyrotechnics connected
with their performances, but Jennings
apperrs to be hanging on to them, and
Etuihey has a reputation of kuowing
bast-bill and Its actors. Evans hasn't
been given much of a chanco by Man
ager Lako of the Boston Doves, but his
record shows he Is pretty fair.
Larry Gardner, second bnseman of
the Boston Hod Sox. Is one of the best
lnflelders to break In this year. lie
is a finished fielder, shows finesse In
putting tlie ball on the mnner nnd can
hit and run bases. Gardner's name

other very fair second sacker.
Of the third basemen. Bert Daniels,
another of Stalllngs' selections, seems
to be the star. Pittsburg obtained a
stable youngster In McKctchnle. third
baseman with Wheeling last year. The
Central leaguer Isn't fracturing the
fences or anything of the sort, but ho
makes on occasional hit when it counts
and he can field like Wagner.
Sharpe. traded by Dreyfuss to Bos
ton, Is tho premier first sacker. Jako
Daubert, who evaded both tho Naps
aud Giants, finally landing with Brook
lyn, Is n close second. Flynn of tho
IMrates Is following at Daubert's heels.
Kownam, tho Texas boy with tho St.
Louis Browns, gives promise
Lewis and Campbell Are Good.
Duffy Lewis of tho Bed Sox and
Campbell of Pittsburg aro tho two
best outfielders developed. Thcso two
will probably bo wonders next year.
Great things nro nlso expected of Jack
Dalton, tho Des Moines gardener, with
Brooklyn. Jack Graney of tho Naps
has proved himself n Class A man.
Itoacli of the Yankees Is undoubt
tdly n better short fielder than Bus-
Hell Blackburno of tho Whlto Sox. In
fact, Blackburno has been pretty much
of a fizzle, but Comlskey has hopes
that the former Provldenco wonder
may yet earn his purchaso price.
As usual, catchers lmvo been mighty
scarce this year. Tho only ono worth
speaking about is big Ed Sweeney of
the Eflghlandcrs. My, hpw this boy

All In all. Duffy Lewis and Bussoll
Ford nro tho stars of the Amerlcnn
youngsters, while the bright lights of
the newcomers In the National league
are Colo and Campbell.
PITCHER PFIESTER WILL
SPRING NEW CURVE ON
Tho "secret Is out." Manager
Chance of the Cubs will use

scries. Tho left bander has de
veloped n "fadeaway" ball which
deceives a right hand batsmau.
Tho new ball breaks out to
tho right hand batter as much
as docs tho curve ball of a right

WHO WILL SUCCEED DANIELS?
Hard to Find Successor to Great
Swimmer, Who Has Retired.
Now that Charles M. Daniels, the
world's famous swimmer, has decided
to retire the question arises, Who will
be tho man to take his placo in this
country? New York, Chicago, St. Lou
is, Pittsburg, Baltimore, Boston and
other cities all havo local champions,
but nono who can compare with tho
Mercury foot wonder. Bud Goodwin
Is being heralded by New Yorkers as
Daniels' successor, but Goodwin never
has dono anything wonderful as yet.
Furthermore, age no doubt will play
havoc with Goodwin's aspirations, as
he now is close to thirty. Hebner, Mc-
Gilllvray und Etuszagh of Chicago,
Frtzollc of St Louis and Sloan of
Pittsburg are all of championship cali
ber, but whether any ono of these can
attain Daniels' high position In world
wide aquatics remains to bo seen.
Just why this swimming marvel
should abandon the water game, In
CHAIiLES M. DANIELS, WHO UAH QUIT
which ho relgued supremo, Is a puzzle
to many, but It Is believed that matri
monial cares nro more or less respon
sible. Tho man who carried tho Amer
ican colors to victory in many hard
fought races with the world's best wa
termen has umnssed a wonderful lot
of prizes during his career.
Daniels Is the champion swimmer of
tho world nt 100, 150 and 220 yards.
Olympic champion of St. Louis, Ath
ens and London and American cham
pion at all distances from forty yards
to one mile.
Would Change Baseball Rules.
On tho Pacific coast a movement has
been started to amend tho baseball
rules so ns to make It tnoro oxpouslve
for a pitcher to hit a batsman. It is
proposed to glvo tho batsman two
bases instead of one. Thcro Is another
reform in tho air, and that Is discard
ing tho spit ball, which It is argued la
ono of tho chief reasons that bitting Is
fast becoming a lost art in every
leaguo throughout tbo couutry.
Manager McGraw will glvo Jack
Johnson a trial next spring. This John
son, Ilko the negro champion. Is a
Texan, n member of tho Dallas club,
no Is an outfielder. Pitcher Munsell
of tbo same team has also been pur
chased by Now York.

ciation.! Good baso running consists In reach'
lug tho baso safely; bad baso running
consists In being caught At least that
Is tbo verdict of tho crowd, and even
an expert has a hard timo to tell
whether tho baso running Is good or
bad. Somo of tho worst breaks made
jn bases win games, and somo of the
best result in defeat. Tho expert can
toll a good baso runner by tho way he
gets tho start, tho ground ho gains
while tho pitcher Is delivering tho ball,
ike way bo slides to tho objective bnse
ind tho Judgment ho ubcs when steal
ing. Base running brings out most for
:lbly what Is in a player. It is hero
where brains count most Hitting
ability Is n natural gift. It is some
thing that may bo Improved, but can
not bo acquired. Baso running Is like
bitting. Base runners oro born, not
made. In nil strategies of attack as
well as defense speed is a fine equip
ment. It Is not an essential. Few
ten second men have blossomed Into
big leaguo material In the baso run
ning department. Most of them lack
brains. Few use their speed to ad
vantage. More Important than speed
Is tho ability to get quickly Into mo
tion. The man who always depends
upon a coacher to tell him what to
do will never succeed. A player must
always havo tho situation In mind.
Ho must be ready to tako advantage
of every llttlo slip of an opponent.
Making the most of opportunities is
another knack of baso running. The
record of stolen bases In a player's
average is not always a criterion of
his ability. Thero is no better illus
tration afforded than in stretching a
On a bit to tho outfield a runner
should always make tho turn to sec
ond. Ho should run toward tho next
bag as far as possible without run
ning tho risk of being trapped by a
quick, accurate throw. Ono Bhouid
also use variations to this play. It Is
not a bad Idea onco In awhile to turn
quickly as If to got back to first This
will often tako tho fielder off his guard.
He may throw tho ball leisurely, mak
ing It easy to beat tho throw to the
cushion, or a bluff to take second may
make blin throw wildly. It Is also
good policy to worry tho pitcher and
catcher by leading off as far as possi
ble and bluffing. You not only help
yourself, but if tho batter works In
conjunction with you It might lead to
the pitcher's losing control.
Another highly Important essential
in negotiating baHcs is tho slide. Tho
principle Is easy, although methods
vary as much as tho players. Always
slide opposite to tho direction in which
the fielder will take tho throw. A
high throw naturally goes In back of
the baso line. On this ono Bhouid slldo
to tho front of tho bag. A low throw
brings tho baseman in. In this case
tho best way Is to clrclo him from be
hind. No two men havo tho same meth
ods of sliding. Some try for tho bag
feet first. Thero Is less personal risk,
though when the ground is Insecure a
twisted ankle is tho result. Tho slldo
varies with tho baseman, and experi
ence alone can improve this. Some
like throws to ono side, whllo others
may oxcel Just tho opposite way.
Thero aro players In tho big leagues
today who never Improve In baso run
ning. Many havo tho requlslto speed,
but poor mauagers havo dono more to
handicap baso running than good man
agers havo Improved it.

Text I ceased not to warn every
one night and day with tears. Acta
't 4- -s-
I address myself to thoso of you,
my dear hearers, who chargo us with
exaggeration, and to whom tho faith
we preach appears too strnngo In lta
maxims, too cxcluslvo in Its asser
tions, and too severe In lta threaton
ings. Let me put to you ono question
which I beseoch you to answer Impar
tially. You honor Paul, equally with
mysolf, as tho fnlthful guardian of di
vine revelation; now did ho under
stand tho Gospol as you do, or as I
And to answer this question, I con
fine myself to this simple feature
Pail cannot see his Gospel rejected
without shedding tears of bitterness.
That suffices mo. What must bo tho
value of Gospel truth In tho Judgment
of thlo man, who urges you with
tears to receive It?
Yes, toll mo the meaning of thoso
tears of Paul, If he had only to pro
claim to tho world a probable faith,
such as you might do In his place;
tell me their meaning If ho announced
anything less than the truth Itself,
alono true, alono necessary, alono sav
ing, outside of which thero Is only
sin, error and perdition! Let others
discuss tho critical meaning of tha
word Eternal, lot them find out that
It Is sometimes omploycd to signify
a finite duration; let them ransack
tho writings and discourses of Paul
for this purpose; we havo no need of
all this. It Is enough to see him weep
ing at our foot
Yes, tell mo tho meaning of thoso
tears of Paul, supposing him merely
to possess that sensibility of disposi
tion of which you boast, If he docs
not soo before him tho dark shadow
of some fearful punishment reserved
for those who reject, or turn away
from tho truth; If he does not seo
awaiting them a misery most fearful
and Inconceivable, described In his
own terms as, "A certain fearful look
ing for of Judgment and of fiery In
dignation, which shall devour tho ad
versaries." You perhaps congratulato your
selves on being able to explain tho
tears of Paul, because his Gospel Is
yours. Congratulato ourselves! Ahl
havo we not more reason to smite
upon our breasts? If we can explain
tho tears of the apostle, then are we
only tho more mlserablo because wo
are not able to shed thorn. Tell mo
how It is that you and I, who have so
many tears for physical maladies,
tears for family disappointments,
tears for public calamities, find their
source dried up when we contemplate
tho loss of souls, nnd of the glory of
Church of the living God! when
thou shalt arise In tho midst of this
erring generation, with tho tears of
Paul In thine eyes, thy voice, and thy
heart; when thou shalt "Take tho In
flrmltlos" of this great multltudo
which surround thee, then shalt thou
see whether thou art unheeded. But
these tears, when shall they be thlno?
It Is a day of colossal movements,
fraught with tremendous conse
quences. It Is a wondrous time In
which to llvo and work. I want to
see the love to God and man which
we profess expressed in a flaming
and united offort to make tho
churches do something big and splen
did for this generation. The church
cannot afford to yield to any other
agency, the leadership of the forces
which are working for tho solidarity
of tho race. The church must not
close lta ears to tbo voice of God
which Is speaking so Insistently to
day. The church must follow the
gleam of God's Increasing revelation
or be superseded.
Spiritual freedom has boon given to
us as It has not been given to any
other generation of tho human race
but It has boen given to us not to fol
low along the lines of least resistance
It has boen rnthor givon to us as a
pledgo of Individual trust In God's
children that thoy will live Justly.
Do not think that wo aro going to
got salvation any cheaper than our
forofathors did. Thoro Is no Joy In
life that is easy of access, nothing
that docs not tako a porsonal strug
glo every day. You and I are not
really living In tho world, wo aro not
progressing In tho world unless day
by day wo deslro the higher life and
surrender the lowor; unless wo travel
by tho straight and narrow road,

It is said that a long, long time ago n

ing, "Come to church, Thompson; come
to church, Brown," and so on. Being
very much surprised, he asked what it
meant and was told that having no
bells, they called folks to church In
this way. The traveler remarked that
It was n pity so flno a church should
Imj without bells and at the same time
asked tho men If they could make
thro for the church, promising to pay
for them himself. They undertook to
do this. They were respectively a
tinker, n carpenter and a shoemaker.

Itow's Your Stomach ?
Undue enlargement of tho stomach In
dicates a dangerous condition. It U often
caused by overeating and drinking. Tho
muscles which propel tho food to tho Intes
tines become weak. Tho food accumulates,
is Improperly digested, and the stomach is
distended to enormous size. An inactive
liver Is one of the causes, and constipation
and nerve trouble is sure to result.
Smith's Pineapple and Butternut Tills
give tone to the weak propelling muscles of
the stomach and Intestines. They produce
a natural movement of the bowels and avoid
the formation of gas, which, If retained,
produces symptoms of self.poisonlng.
Smith's Pineapple and Butternut Pills
cure constipation as If by magic. They
regulate the functions of tho liver. If your
eyes are clouded without cause, If you
have specks and floating objects before
your vision, use Smith's Pineapple and
Butternut Pills, and get the poisonous
elements out of your blood. Physicians
use and recommend. They form no habit.
You should always keep them on hand.
