"Massa John" Henry, ths Cllmbcn'
Stellar backstop, will return to Wash
ington In a few days where he will
remain all winter, allowing Mike Mar
tin, the team's crack trainer, treat his
Injured knee. Henry Is now visiting his
sister In California, going: there from
Manager Griffith's hunting (7) camp In
ths windy wastes of Montana,
Though he wore his Iron braco
throughout the hunting j) trip In Mon
tana, Henry's knee bothered him con
tinuously and so he has determined not
to winter In his home town, Amherst.
Mass., but to come here where Mike
Martin may try his soothing Influences
upon the painful place.
Jacinto de Calvo, the youthful Cuban
outfielder, who will be given a trial In
tbs spring at Charlottesville, has signed
Jsls contract Ho has also written Man
ager Griffith a neat letter In Spanish.
The "Old Fox" Is now taking a course
In ths Ollerdorf method In the hopes of
being able to decipher Culvo's meaning
by the time of his arrival here In
Expect Many Trades.
Many trades are expected to occur be
tween the National League clubs In
New Tork next week. There are so
many new managers In charge of teams
In the older organisation that something
is bound to happen, once they all get
together around the mile track at tho
Waldorf. The annual meeting will be
held beginning Tuesday next and con
tinuing until the last armed foe ex
pires. The Pittsburgh club Is the only one In
the National League willing to stand
pat on Its line-up of 1912. Every other
club In the circuit Is expected to mingle
In the hurly-burly of the trado and
emerge with a new makeup. It will be
amaslng to read the first line-ups of the
coming season In the National League,
so many athletes are due to shift their
Johnny Evers, In his lust for success
In his first season as a big league mana
ger, will listen to anything that doesn't
Involve Archie Zimmerman and him
self. He wants young blood. If what
"Chattering Charlie" Murphy says Is
so. Many wise old veterans are due to
leave the Cubs this winter.
"Bad Dill" Dahlen wants to strengthen
his outfit In Brooklyn, and will let tho
whole bunch go, except Jake Daubert
and Nap Rucker. However, no one
would take any of the others.
All But Sweeney.
George Stalling, another lover of
young blood, has only Bill Sweeney on
his favored list, though young Bill Rarl
den may be kept on account of his
youth and promise. The rest of the
club Is for sale to the highest bidder,
one by one. Arthur Devlin and Jack
Titus are sure to be canned.
' Cincinnati has no favored son, unless
it be Marsans, the slugging Cuban out
Solder. Redland wants a winner and
doesn't care how It Is obtained.
Nona can tell much about what
Charlie Dooln will effect at the meeting.
He has several places to strengthen be
fore the "Phltlng I'hlls" will get any
thing from their "nhltlng."
Of course, "Muggsy" Mcdraw will
stand pat on his regular line-up, but
bo may do something to get hold of
Sine promising youth about to slip
ck Into the minors without much of a
trial oy some otner ciud.
White Sox Ready.
At the American League side show In
Chicago Jimmy Callahan will stand
raady to effect some trade ridding him
of Harry Lord and Ping Bodle. Ed
Walsh Is to be kept another season In
the hopes of his developing Into a good
man. At times last year he looked
Jake Btahl and Connie Mack have
nothing to do with trading, nor has
Clark Griffith, particularly, though he
would like to get a good second base
Joe Birmingham doesn't expect to get
much through trades, but may try to
lose some of those truck horses of his
Detroit wants another Jean Dubus,
and will let almost anybody go but
Cobb to get him.
Juit a Sideshow,
From every point of view the Ameri
can League meeting In Chicago will be
Just a side show. Ban Johnson, In order
to have his way, may stretch It through
two or three days, but little or no In
terest will be shown In it. The methods
of the American League boss are so
wel Iknown as to need no explain
Ids'. His magnates have notliinir to
ay aa to the policy to be pursued, and,
unless trades result from the meeting,
It will hardly get a real headline.
Johnson wants to show the difference
between the two major leagues In the
clearest light. That's why his orderly
school boys will gather In the Windy
City, repeat their well-learned lessons,
and adjourn to the bar. In New York,
at the same time, the National League
scrappers will be pulling hair and
shrieking "Scoundrel I"
Inasmuch as tho great general public
likes a scrap, the National League is
sure to attract far more attention than
the American League. However, Ban
will have had his way, and that'a the
best thing In the world for him.

sing my mew
the Savannah team of the Bouth Atlan
tic League, with which he played In
1910. He made a great record that year
and was corraled by Atlanta, only to
nnd that veterans had cinched every In
ileld position. He went back to the
Bally, playing with Macon. He batted
many points over .300, and his sensa
tional fielding soon brought a regiment
of scouts on his trail. After some spir
ited bidding he was sold to Cincinnati
for a large price, said to be 14.000.
The Indian was never given a chance
with the Beds. He says that his only
occupation while with Griffs lads was
offlclul runner for Lary McLean. Ho
was sent to the bases whenever McLean
chanced to get on In a Pinch, and dis
tinguished himself with a bunch of
xtolen bases. He batted .210 with tho
Reds. He was sold to Chattanooga In
the fall of 1911 under optional agree
ment. He started the 1912 season brilliantly,
slumped In Juno and July and then
came back with a vengeance. He was
Pinch hlttcr-ln-chlcf on the Chatta
nooga team. In one aeries with Atlanta
ho mado six doubles In three games and
drove In eight runs.
The chief Is not a flre-eatlng Indian.
The lire water which caused the down
fall of some other Indian athletes has
on attraction for this scion of real
American blood. So far aa analysis can
go he seems to lack no quality that
goes to make a major league star of
many seasons temperament, speed on
the bases, a keen batting eye, a hard
wallop, ability to cover ground In the
field and a great throwing arm.
Strikes Cubs' Owner Be
cause He Plays a Short
CHICAGO, Dec 4. Tris Speaker, the
Red Sox center fielder, Is the greatest
outfielder In the game, according to
Charlie Murphy, the pesky Cub mogul.
"The Boston man for me," says C. W,
"I like him because he plays such a
short field. He hat perfect confidence In
his ability to travel back after a ball,
and the confldenco Is Justified, He plays
up so close to the Infield 'that he Is able
to deprive batters of what would be
base hits with any other man In tho
position. Perhaps he loses two or three
long drives that ho would catch If he
observed the 'rules,' but he makes up
for that ten times over by being In
position to grab the short ones.
"Speaker has plenty of Intelligence,
and he can throw with the best of them.
Shcckard Is a wonderfully brainy fielder,
and pulls oft lots of tricks that others
would be afraid to try. It must bo re
membered that he has been In tho gamo
much longer than the rest"

MORNING and afternoon a man must keep
hit body and brain in tune. That's effici
ency, and a good, pure tobacco Tuxedo
is an excellent pace maker.
A few whiffs in the morning clear your brain
and concentrate it on your work. In the afternoon,
many a good long steady pull at the pipe keeps that
concentration keyed just right.
Atnight, after a good day's level-headed work, sit
back in your easy chair at home and get the solace and
relaxation that comes from a big calabash of Tuxedo.
That's the true history of many a Tuxedo day.
T Th Perfect Tobacco for Pip and Cigarottt
Tuxedo is unique, individual. It's the only
tobacco that stimulates and soothes without a bite
or sting or an irritation.
Business men find Tuxedo helpful. Authors
and journalists smoke it while they write. Singers
use it before and after performances. Doctors
enjoy it and recommend it.
Try a week of Tuxedo, Smoke it in your
pipe, or roll it into the best cigarettes you ever
smoked. Either way, or both ways, for a week,
and you'll have the best 6moke week in your life !
