Any man who has seen 3501 games of
baseball, who has scored 178,500 put
outs, 93,502 assists, 14,442 stolen bases
and 3037 double plays, must be fairly
well posted upon the lore and workings
of America's national game.

time to llgure out the whys and the
wherefores the causes and effects as
he went along, with time enough and
energy enough and enthusiasm enough
left to look about him and rellcct
upon whatever else life had to show
along the trail that was Interesting or
complex or both.
Fullerton is a vital part of baseball.
The game has produced but one Wag-,
ner, one Anson, one Mathewson, one
Lajole, one Cobb and one nugh S.
There are others who have seen as
many games who have watched these
games as closely. Rut there have
been fewtothers with all of this who
have had as keen an insight Into the
spirit of both play and player and who
have achieved deductions with so
much skill and keenness who have
excavated as deeply beneath the sur
face for all of importance that might
He below the obvious and who have
applied the result of these excavations
to the general trend of the contest.
To have the correct answer one must
know Fullerton. If Ilughey were
breaking in as a young pitcher he
would be listed by the war scribes as a
"tall and rangy guy." Ho ls well over
six feet and his frame is as lank as his
eyes are keen and as his drawl is mag
netic, and there Isn't much around
him that his eyes miss seeing or that
his ears miss hearing. On a training
trip with some ball club, no one will
watch the work of the players with
any more intentnoss But in addition
Ilughey Unreflecting upon the differ
ent shadesjof climate encountered, the
varieties of food and cooking along the
way, the character and actions of the
natives mot with In each hamlet and
the modes and customs of the trail he
ls taking in general detail. It may bo
the manner in which french fried
potatoes are handled one day and tho
condition of tho putting greens upon
some local course the next, but In
cither lnstanco It ls a certainty that
Ilughey has studied both carefully and
overlooked no point of Interest in his
The only wonder ls that ho can go
to all of it with so much enthusiasm.
His specialty Is whatever happeps to
be at hand whether it be baseball,
cooking, golf, climate, people or local
Industries. For Fullerton ls almost
as much of an expert at cookery and
climate as he Is an expert upon dia
mond affairs. Whether It be at broil
ing a steak, boiling an egg, compiling
meringue, frying a sausage or baking
a pie or tho general average of cross
currents in South Carolina or dry days
in Oregon, the author of "Touching
Second," "The Inside Game," etc., ls
primed and poised for tho test.
After graduating from Ohio State
University and working through a
spring tralng on a country weekly,
Fullerton broke into baseball as a
scribe under Comlskey's regime in
Chicago. And like tho old Roman,
one of the chief causes of his success
lias been the faculty of making friends
and Interesting them with a magne
tism that isn't to be denied.
This faculty has kopt him In close
touch with the playors and ho ls one
of the few baseball wrltors who can
"pan" a ball player In picturesque de
tail and still hold his friendship ; for
the playor knows that Fullerton is
fair and will be quick enough to
change when there Is cause for praise.

was out completing some baso running

that Cobb's time was lagging consid

saw that the speed tests had extended

For Their Efficiency and Accu

Covers 18 Months.
Only $70.78 was erroneously
out by the county olllclals of

March 1, 1012, as shown by the report,
of State Examiner F. II, Doyle, who

Examiner Doyle commends all of
the olllcers for the excellent manner
In which their work is done and for
their courtesy to him All but $14.50
of the amount found to havo been
erroneously drawn was at once paid
Into the county.
A summary of the tindlngs follows :
Charles D. Johnston, Treasurer, ex
cessive payment to clerk Intreasun r's

months of year 1911, 318.32 ; T. M.

The Commissioners allowed Treas
urer Johnson for 1011 for clerk hire
$800. During the year 1011 Mr. John
son expended for clerk hire 8831.00.
The excess of 834.CO over SS00, the
amount allowed by the commissioners
Mr. Doyle held could not lw legally
paid out of the county funds. It has
been paid back Into the county fund.
Mr. Doyle says, "The books of the
treasurer's olllce are well kept" and
"The treasurer is entitled to commen
dation for his practice of keeping the
bulk of tho county money In the de
positories where It can be earning In
terest for the county, instead of keep
ing a large surplus In the county
The finding of $18.32 against Sheriff
Long ls due to a misunderstanding as
to whether his salary was based on
the census of 1000 or 1010. The tlrst
two months of his term Mr. Long
drew his salary on the basis of the
1900 census, which gave him $150 a
month. Under the census of 1010 his
salary Is 140.84 a month. Attorney
Generz.1 nogan held that the salary
should be based on the 1010 census.
Under this ruling Mr. Long drew ex
cessive fees of $18.32. He has paid It
back Into tho treasury.
Mr. Doyle comments as follows on
tho conduct of the sheriff's office :
'The sheriff's cash book is exception
ally well kept and all moneys received
by said olllcer were accounted for.
The expense accounts of the sheriff
were checked In detail and found reg
ular In all respects."
The $12.30 found against Judge
Watts, as probate judge, Is made up
of several small fees, where mistakes
were mado on the cash book. These
mistakes were at once rectltled by
Judge Watts when called to his at
tention. Mr. Doyle comments as fol
lows on tho conduct of the ofllce :
"All records, dockets, etc., wero neat
ly and accurately kept."
In Inquests over tho bodies of Ella
Laura norton and William Macy, J.
W. Matthews, coroner, charged a fee
of $1 in each case for holding inquest.
Mr. Doyle states that there ls no au
thority for such a charge by tho coro
ner and that ho should pay tho $2 Into
tho county treasury.
O. C. Shade, court constable, was
paid two per diem fees of $2.50 each
for Nov. 23, 1010, and April 25 and 27,
1011. Mr. Doyle holds that moro than
ono per diem fee Is not rJermlssablo
for each single day. Mr. Shado acted
aa court constable on oach of the days
mentioned for both the Common
Pleas and Circuit Courts, having a
separate appointment for each court.
Wm. n. Hopkins was paid $5 his
per diem compensation for Jan. 2 and
3, 1011. Mr. Ilopkin's term expired
on Jan. 1, 1011, so Mr. Doyle holds
this payment unauthorized, although
Mr. nopklns worked those two days.

IVIT UUUIb HIV IUUlllk.1 a
On last Friday evening at the Wash
ington School Building Dr. J. M.
Withrow lectured on ' What the Pub
lic School should do for the Child"
before a large and Interested audience.
Dr. Withrow has long been a member
of the Cincinnati School Board and Is
eminently fitted to talk on this sub
ject He Is a strong advocate of shorter
hours of study from books and more
manuel training and domestic science
and thoroughly believes In the use of
school houses as social centers. He
spoke at some length of the special
schools for retarded pupils and the
Kreat progress maed. Ills remarks
concerning the continuation schoo'
were especially Interesting.

department store learns something of
the value and manufacture of ribbons.
Dr. Withrow told of the splendid
schools of Germany with their free
training in forty different vocations,
their purpose being the prevention of
emmlgratlon and the building up of
manufactures at home.
In Dr. Wlthrow's Judgment the two
evils hardest to overcome In building
up the Public Schools are the predju-
dice of the Ignorant and the Influence
of politicians who see loss of power In
The following comments by Mr.
Doyle on the Infirmary speak for
"The Intirmary superintendent,
directors and matron take a deep in
terest in the Intirmary nnd the Insti
tution seems to be well managed.
"The records of expenditures dis
close the fact that rigid economy has
been practiced by the board at all
"All moneys that have come Into
the hands of the directors, have been
promptly paid Into the treasury."
No finding was made against either
John Q Roads or W. A. Teter, the
two men who have tilled the auditor's
otllco during the time covered by the
examination. Among other things
Mr. Doyle reports as follows: "All
books and records were found neatly
and accurately kept. Much credit ls
due to both incumbents and their as
slstants for the system found to exist
In this olllce. Scarcely any Improve
ment could be suggested In any de
ment." Everything was found absolutely
correct In the ofllce of J. Ed. Shannon,
clerk of courts, by the examiner, who
says: "The cash book and record of
accrued fees have been kept as pre
scribed by this department. The var
ious records were carefully checked
by your examiner and it was found
that they were accurate in all re
spects." No finding was made against either
O. A. Landess or John S. Farls, the
two Incumbents of the recorder's of
fice, during the period covered by the
examination. Mr. Doyle pays the fol
lowing compliment to both olllcers :
"The cash books kept by both Incum
bents of this olllce within the period
of their examination were carefully
checked and found correct. All books
and records designated by section 2757
G. C. are found in this olllce and the
same are nicely and neatly kept In a
fair and legible handwriting which
reflects credit upon the olllce. In
short every detail of the olllce ls con
ducted In a manner such as makes It
satisfactorily meet every public de
mand." A. G. Cockerlll, C. N. Carey, C. F.
Robers, Harry C. II lest and and C. C.
Kesler were the commissioners within
the period covered by the Inspection.
Mr. Doyle says : "The duties pertain
ing to this Important olllco, seem to
have been well performed throughout
tho period." He suggests that tho
commissioners in allowing clerk hire
should take Into consideration that
tho statutes contemplate that.an olll
cer devote his entire time to the du
ties of his olllco and should not ex
pect a clerk to be provided to per
form the work of tho olllcer. IIo also
advises the commissioners not to buy
culvert pipe by the lineal foot.
Mr. Doyle's report discloses that
the people of Highland county have
had efficient and competent olllcers
during the period covered by the ex
amination. Try Sanitary Broad In place of city
bread. Ono trial will convince you.
