The election of "Hev" Carter to the

The Question Direct.
Which reminds us speaking of long-distance check writing and such,
wo wonder how F. P. A. would like to write a check to O. Rico for the sum

know; we are curious to know.
Tho dope on most of those winter league trades is that olmmt nv
manager will trade you a toothpick

arises and the deal Is called off.
Fred Clarke is willing to trade nine Pirates for Bill Sweeney, but tho
result of the trade will not be announced until Stalllnra ha tntninrf it..,

not they equal Sweeney's figures of .344.
Is He Still There?
Yes, it's still a pity about Mathewson's going back. Last year was
his thirteenth season under the Big Tent and the records show that ho
worked only 310 innings, which happens fo be tied for actual service by
only Alexander, of tho Phillies.
Also In tho course of these extended rounds that Mathewson only ranks
second In the number of runs earned from his delivery. In tho course
of thirty-fhe contests they averaged two runs to the game from his reper
tory, which Is still considered to be fair pitching, as such things go. With
three or four more years' experience the Big Gun should be quite a help
to bis people in times of siege.
Nap Rucker finished twenty-eighth among the winners and losers,
where his rank was third in the number of runs earned from his work
In addition to erecting a new ball park, Mr. Ebbetts might look into the
matter of erecting a team around Rucker capable of pulling him through
