EXCELLENT TIP FOR
Better Results Obtained by Ex
hibiting More Interest.
When Ray Chapman of Cleveland In
dians Was In a Rut He Went to
Owner Dunn and Was Helped
Greatly by Advice Qlvtn.
Baseball magnates might, on ninny
occnslons, obtain the grcntost results
from their players by exhibiting n bit
of pcrsonnl Interest In tbo men. A
striking example of the ninnncr In
which this system works out Is the
case of Magnate Dunn of the Cleve
land, train nnd Ituy Chapman, the peer
In 1010 Chnpmnn was deeply In the
dumps. Ills butting average shrunk
wny down, and his work In tho field
was at times quite rusty. He seemed
to be working hard In every game, but
he could not get results to satisfy him
self. The Jinx was on his trail, too,
and during the season he suffered sev
eral Injuries. Humors were around
that "Chappie" was to be sold or
Being n sensitive lad. ho went to
Stagnate Dunn and explained that ho
was In a rut. Dunn did not bawl him
out, or threaten him In any way. He
took the youngster to one side and
talked to him Ilko a father. Among
other things he told Chapman hu could
rest (insured ho was a llxture on the
Cleveland club, and that ho had all
kinds of confidence In him. He ad
vised Chapman to keep on working thu
best he could, nnd tho Jinx would get
discouraged and leave. Chnpumn left
the conference llglit-heurtcd antl de
termined to glvo up tho best hu had
for tho Cleveland owner.
Chapman's record shows clearly the
result of that conference with his boss.
IIi was easily right among tho top
notchers on tho shortstop Job and ho
hiis remained n real star ever since.
Chapman swears by Magnate Dunn,
ami cites his llttlu experience as tend
ing to show what a little heart-to-heart
confab will do for owner and player.

Prexy of Cincinnati Reds Easily Can
Take More From Pastime Than Ho
Put In It Was Regarded
as Expert In Politics.
Baseball has produced some wealthy
citizens among those who entered tho
game on what might bo called tho
"ground floor," or on n "white check,"
a they sometimes say In racing cir
cles. One of that clan who could nf
ford to pass up the American pas
time, from a financial standpoint, nnd
still have "cookie" money, Is Garry

Beds and "chief Justice" of the Na
If Herrmann lives nnd holds his Job

gust 0 he will lmvo served 17 years In
tho tolls of a major league. If ho de
cides to leave the gome after his 17
year period has expired, he will eas
ily take much more from the gamo
than he put in It, on August I),
Herrmann worked In on the Cincin
nati club when John T. Brush sold tho
outfit to George D. Cox and Mnx and
Julius Klelschman. Herrmann was al
ways anxious to have t said ho had
contributed a substantial portion of
that Sir.0,000 paid to Brush, but
somo dope which listens exceedingly
well places Herrmann In tho setting as
a representative of .Mr. Cox, who wa
oaMly one of Ohio's shrewdest politi
cians. Tho baseball fraternity over tho
country may not know It, hut It Is
truth Just'tho same, Gnrry Herrmann
was at ono tlmo regarded iih an ex
pert on Ohio politics. With his oily
manners and his ability to umko
friends, Garry was Cox's right bower.
Cox never cared any moro for acquir
ing baseball property thun John D.
Rockefeller would euro for a corn salvo
factory, hut Cox doted out somo of his
vast wealth for an Interest In the Beds
to "set" himself with certain parties
whose political good will ho soon found
use for. Garry Herrmann was elect
ed to look nfter that Interest, and
Carry finally owned considerable of
an Interest himself. Ilegnrdless of his
political past, Herrmann Is n prlnco of
good fellows on acquaintance and
baseball might have many worse men.

Hearts of the People.
The Dutch coffee house Is, unlike

UNCLAIMED MONEY IN BANKS
Many Reasons Why Sometimes Con
siderable Sums Are Seemingly
Forgotten by Depositors.
Strange though It may seem to some,
there are many thousands of pounds
lying imclnlmcd In British banks. In
Kome countries It Is compulsory for
bankers to publish particulars of
these dormant accounts, hut tho rulo
docs not hold here.
There hnvo been several Instances
where u woman for this happens less
frequently In the case of men tins
saved up a nice little sum nnd depos
ited It In the hank, without saying u'
word about It to her relatives. Per
hups she hides tho receipts In somo
secure place, and at her death, If sho
leaves no will, no ono knows of tho
existence of tho money,
Other unclaimed accounts aro duo
to a misapprehension on thu part of
dsposltors. They lose their receipts,
and Imagine that they cannot claim
tho money without them.
Yet another class must bo set down
to sheer neglectfulness, Thu depositor
adds up thu amount of thu checks ho
has drawn, and, calculating that
thero Is nothing further owing him, hu
Imagines his account to bo closed. Ho
may have neglected tho Interest given
by somo banks on current accounts,
