hlsself down on the steps of myj
house, "when you wag In the East
did you glvs a thought to the old
hawk gag that we worked at Catfish

That started me to thlnkln'. I knowed in a minute where I had slipped.
Pollowln' that talk with old Zeke I went out and bought throe of them
hawk some folks call 'eim falcons and I've got "em trainln' for the blgost
thing aver pulled In baseball.
"But you want to be mighty Iteerful," eaya Zeke, " 'cause it was a slip
that caused them Cattish Shoals follow to almost beat ma and It it hadn't
been for an accident 1 would have been disgraced."

ths Nettle Hashes and the Catfish Shoals and a 1th Zeke Bender plU'hln' it
looked like a cinch for tbe Nettles
Of course you've all heard of BIS Aahwood, the mighty hitter of the
.Catfish Shoals, lie was a feller, like me, who never want to hat unless the
bases was choked up with runners and there was a chance to win.
They ussd a secret service bureau and found out that Bender was gola
to use his famous elevator curve. This curve would lift Itself about two
inches when it got to the plate and the batter would hit the ball high tn the
air because his bat would touch it under the bottom
When the big game come off Biff Ashwood snd bis gang brought on their
famous trained hawk, which was to tbe turned loose over the park when
Biff come to bat. The Idea was that when Hlff hit one high in the air the
hawk was to swoop down on the ball, grab it In his claws and sail off. In
them days the rule was In vogue that a batter could keep on scorin' till the1 permission to the baseball team of the
ball waa recovered. You see, If ihe hawk flew far enough with the ball there Institution "r '" "nlted Btates in
