CHICAGO, 11U Oct 23. On the eve
of Frank Chance's departure for, the
Pacific coast,; the ex-peerless leader
was the recipient of four offers frpm
major league, clubs' to stay .In the big
show, and manage.; "va v-t; i-
Chance , will leave Chicago tomor
row - night A crowd of his friends
will be on hand to see him off, X
iThe telegraphic and telephonic 'Of
fers , went.; practically unanswered.
Said ; Chance: . . ;. '' " '
MIt looks as If the Chicago clulj was
trying to give me to the highest bid
der. Three National league clubs
and one from the .American league
have asked me to stay in baseball.
They have offered me good money,
tooi But I'm not going to take a Na
tional league job unless I am sold
outright to the club that wants me
most,- and I'm going to get most of
the purchase money.
"Better Consult Me.w r
"If any National league club makes
a deal with President Murphy for my
services it had better consult me first
I can lively nicely on what I've got,
and it's a cinch the Cubs are not go
ing to make any more profit on me."
Chance showed one dandy offer, the
details of which cannot be revealed at
this time.. He said he would accept it
if he decided that he had not had
enough of baseball.
A big three-cornered deal, involving
Chicago, Cincinnati and Philadelphia,
is in the air. Chance is mentioned in
it, but he says there will be nothing
doing so far as he is concerned.
There was plenty of action in Pres
ident Murphy's office today. Heine
Zimmerman was invited to the inner
sanctum and was presented with a
diamond horseshoe pin containing
nineteen rocks, as' a reward for bat
ting over .325. Heine had a sort of
bet with the boss and the pin paid it.
Zlmmy Is Congratulated.
Accompanying the headlight was a
note congratulating Zimmy on his
feat of leading the league in batting
and a check for $560, representing the
fines that had been assessed against
him last season.
Jim Sheckard was also handed a
remittance of $100 and Jimmy Archer
was slipped a $500 bonus.
Manager Evers divided the day be
tween Mr. Murphy and his dentist.

TO BOOST SPORT IN HAWAII

V. L. Johnson, who came to the i condition On the days that he does;
local Y. M. C. A. a few months ago! his speed work he tiiould run only
as assistant physical director, was
one of the fastest middle distance
runners in the Middle West when a
student at the University of Missouri,
from which he recently graduated. A
record holder, and a keen lover of
the running game, Mr. Johnson natur
ally -wishes to give the sport a boost
in Hawaii, and with this idea-in view
he proposes to start a class in cross
country runing in the near future,
the men. to leave the "Y every Tues
day and Thursday afternoons for a
pleasant jog through the fields. All
members, of the association : are in
vited to go along. In this way he
hopes to develop some' really first
class running f material
Speaking of the effect of the cli
mate of the Hawaiian Islands on those
who go in for running here, Mr. John
; I; have ; heard a number of people
make . the I statement that there can
be ; ho' long distance , runners in ' the
Hawaiian .Islands aiaecoint (of . the
climate Now I, can see' no . reason . for
this, a'the cli"matehere is similar to
that fbl Sbu'therrT California; and. also
to that' of . some , other, states in . the
spring, 'the tinle . when the track men
turn CUt.Take for instance the-colleges
of California. There is very - little
difference,; in, the climate there, and
yet these ; colleges turn out ' some
crackerjadk runners, both middle and
. rOno thing in favor of the climate
of; Hawaii Is that there is no sharp,
chilly ; weather, ' which is often- detri
mental to a- runner, as it makes the
muscles stiff just as warm weather
loosens' them up. Personally, I was
never able to do anything until I had
worked up a. perspiration; , and . the
more I Jersplred, the faster I could
run. On. account of the, warm climate
here : It , would not take hard ; daily,
running during traiaing as one would
hav to contend with In a colder cll
mate.r " - . ' "
- Mr: Johnson was then asked, for
some points for a track beginner and
he . gave the following: . . -
"A man ; starting to train for the
track, if he is a, young fejlow has to
be careful,: first of all not to! strain
hiniself, that Is, not to try anil do too
much; at one time, until he, gets, mus
cles used to the work, He must start
out r easily and come Into condition
so aesily that his muscles will never
have a change to get sore Easy jog
ging and cross-country work are best
for conditioning, starting out easy , at
the beginning and gradually bringing
in harder work.
-" "After a man has worked up his
endurance and wind them he can start
doing his speed work. He should al
ternate days of speed work with days
of longer runs to keep his muscles in
Visits to. the latter were more pain
ful. John met all his ball players and i
received the congratulations and
good wishes of the men who will call
him chief next year.
As soon as business will allow him
a holiday Mr. Murphy will go to Flor
ida to pick out a permanent training
camp. Two cities, Jacksonville and
Palatka, are on the eligible list.
You never heard of anyone who
used Chamberlain's Cough Remedy

bottles of that remedy are sold every ing like a belligerent Chanticler was

During the investigation of cam-!

tne distance mat ne is training ror,
for instance the hundred or the fifty
yard dash. Sn the other clays he should
take the work easier, perhaps jogging
a mile or a mile and a quarter. Prac
tice competition is invaluable to a
man training for a race. It teaches
him to use bis head, judge his speed
and pulls him to a limit that he would
not go were hfe running alone. . J
"The fatal mistake that is made by
some of the ;Tery best runners and
amateurs is tb tun' lust hard enough to
win a race. ' Every race that a man
runs should be- bisf best race, and in
every race he shoiild:.. pull himself o
a limit Every lm$ a man' runs him
self to the limit;; the next time he goes
a little bit beyond; that and this ' is
the only; way j that he can ; Increase
his speeed." I have seen many runners
who, in their - own college, fwere - the
best men, and In races against their
own classmen they vran' Just hard ;en-
ough to - win th(j ; racer iThen,.: when
they - went to sbmet 'a bigi conference

'Take ;for ' instance ? Davenport, : of
the University; of Chicago, who was
third in the . 800 meter race at ' the
Olympic Games this year.. After tne
games he 'rent-to Hamburg, Germany,
ran the. race over. and broke the- rec-.

mistake like this onse myself andkhow.
what it is. r; ;
v 'My -definition of a track man ' Is
a head, a heart legs and lungs." If a
man does t not have all of these' he
can never expect to become a runner
In middle distance running a man lias
to use his head to estimate time, jUd- l
ge ais opponent ana Know at all times
just how much endurance he has left
A sprinter is generally a heavy-muscled
man, - built compactly nervpu's,:
and " 1th muscles mat respond quick
ly; to the nervous system. Middle dis
tance menf are generally tall fellows
with a long stride. Of course there
are exceptions for all these. Daven
port of Chicago, has long legs and
a wealth of muscles; Melvin Sheppard
has long legs arid an enormous stride;
Kohlemainen, of Finland, who won
the 3000, 5000 and 10,000 meter events
at, Stockholm, Is loose-muscled and
has a - long stride.
. "In short to become a first-class
middle distance man one must have
the foundation of a runner and the
rest can be accomplished by, the nec
essary training; Absolutely the best
training that a person can take is

him to any extent. This is the weight
he made for the last Madison fight,

the scales about an hour before ring
