Isolation, all unmindful or the clam
orous fans below him. At times he
drew a gilt-leafed, memorandum book
from hlr, pocket, made some notes,
replaced It, and resumed his steady
scrutiny of thu field There Atlanta
and Columbia of the Southern league
were playing. Tho score was close,
It waB llvoly baseball; yet the man

outfielder swaggered to bat, danced

and as quickly vanish Innings pass

fielder had Btolen hlo fourth base a
look of satisfaction came Into the
man's faco. Later he left the grounds
as quietly as he had come.
That night a message went over
the wires from Columbia to the head
quarters of the American league's
baseball club In Detroit, Mich. The
message road' "Transfer your option

TEAM IN NEED Of

cussing outfielders, there was no
team In tho country more In need of
star performers than the Mackmen.
The athletes really never had a fly

Magee. says the North American. The
nearest approach Is Dan' Murphy, a
Murphy has no weakness a6 an
outfielder. He can hit, run, field and
throw, but as he started to play In
the outfield late In his career," his
reputation has been somewhat ham
pered. Oldring ma develop even
more. He Is a slashing batsman and
a Bwlft runner. In the outfiold he

Knee All Right Now
Amos Strunk, who for three sea
sons has been reserve outfielder for
the Athletics, is doing fine all
around work .is a regular this sea
son. It was only a question of
Strunk knee mending for Amos to get
fixed post with the monarchs of base
ball. Strunk was badly Injured in 1010,
when he was afflicted with water
ou tho knee. It hurt his play that
season and last yoar. This spring
Stru.uk reported to Mack without
showing tho faintest trace of the old
trouble. He has outgrown the hurt
and can now U6e the leg with the
As a result, Strunk has played

for speed, Strunk has been unusually
fast this year, because ho doBen't

Herman Weeke, a St. Louis news
paper man, traveling with the Browns

Thoro Is one big question in the
minds of followers of the Athletics,
That is. "Are the world's champions
out of the 1912 race?" From the wav
tho team has come to life at the ex

agine H is not And that's the way
the most of the fans look at It.
Connie Mack's men have played
groat ball against Stovall's men After
a series with the Tigers, in which thev
were none too successful, the Athletlck
have reoupcrated. and are now travel
ing at the fastest possible gait. Then
Jack Coombs, who has not been pitch

through with a remarkable exhibition
after relieving Youngster Pcnnock.
His addition to tho team will help

say nothing about Ira Thomas, will
soon bo ready for work. The chief's
arm has been ailing him. Murphy In

dayts has been around in piactice Ir
Thomas Is Just about ready to get
back. With those three atara in the
fray the Mackers should cut a huge
swath in the American leaguo race.

Tho team haa many Btars who have
been through the battle, and fans are
looking for them to Btay out Jn front.
The Red Sox have a long lead on

baseball, and it may be that before

They figure tho Red Sox aro due for
a slump. Jake Stabl's team has not
suffered such a fate, and it is Just
about due to topple. Then tho Na

LAND WITH BRAVES
Boston, A"S 7 Hughey Jennings,
bounced out of the American league a3
far as Ban Johnson'3 No. 12 shoe can
drive him, will then fall. It Is predicted
by some of those on the Inside, on a
bed of New England wild roses to be
greeted with yells of enthusiasm from
New England fans who bellee in the
motto, "Two Teams, Two Pennants."
It Is said to be prottj tolerably cer
tain that Johnny Kling will not wish
to return to the Hub In 1913 as man
ager of the Boston Nationals or oth
erwise for he Is now building a big
hotel In Kansas Cltv to house his big
billiard, bowling nnd general sporting
business, and In this venture the
crack backstop has already Invested
?50.000 of real money all " his own
Kllng-s emporium, which will occupy
three floors In the new hotel, will be
the biggest thing in the sporting line
between the Mississippi and tho coast,
and it Is quite likely that he will wish
to give his whole time and attention
to it. The building will be roadv for
occupancy October 1.
Might Play With Home Team.
If satisfactory terms can be mado
with organized baseball, Kling would
no doubt be interested in and play for
the Kansas City team of the American
association, but the major league cities
will probably he considered by him
henceforth as too far awav fiom tho
clt where his capital Is largely in
ested. The breaking up of tho Detroit club
foreshadpwod and predicted at the
,mu,0f.,t!10 "Cobb strike" In Phila
delphia this spring, is well In progress
now. While such men a3 Cobb Craw
ford and Bush positively cannot be
spored by Ban Johnson's leagno the
other "strikers" know that thoy' will
be canned discreetly and from time to

knowledge is that he is no longer
