i o retire the last man in the. final
In 1912 Davis started to manage
the Cleveland team, but stubbed his
toe, an assist being awarded the Nap
players on thrplgy. The Mackmen
slumped to third place.
Lack of harmony, breaking of train
ing and other excuses were made for
the team's failure. There certainly
was dissension. Barry and Collins
were at odds and there were others
who thought their comrades were
about as intelligent as a contested
Mack needed a harmonizer and
signed Davis. Not to play, but to
smooth the wrinkles. As a smoother
Harry was a wonder. He proved as
effective as the bludgeons of Baker,
Collins and Mclnnes.
Barry and Collins were better than
ever and their double killings proved
the undoing of many an attack. Back
of them was Davis.
To the casual spectator Davis is
an ordinary coacher. Most of his
work is done off field or at morning
practice. He has uncanny ability to
discolor signs of weakening in a
pitcher, and on his word the Mack
men start their irresistible attack.
Mack had as good a team in 1912
as in 1913 and the opposition was
weaker. But he didn't have Harry
Davis in 1912. The obvious answer is
the assistant manager, even if you
don't see his name in the box score.

CAUSE FOR THANKS! .
By Jim Manee.
There ain't no use to pout and fuss,
There ain't no use to growl and cuss,
The thing to do is just to make
The best of what you've got
It's cheering when a man's face rips
To let a smile play 'round his lips,
'Cause anyhow you've got to take
What fate says is your lot
You'll sav. nerhans. that vnn am cnro
With nothing to be thankful for,
And yet, not e'en one single day
oi your life would you miss.
Cheer up, and kid yourself along,
That grouch of yours is muchly.
Be thankful that you do not have
To plough through more of this.
P. S. Tomorrow is the time for all
good doctors to come to the aid of

what his father left him will be about
$10,000 a day.
