SECOND BASE MADE FAMOUS,

Story of Players Who Have Won

Pop Anson, the great old player, re

famous," says Anson. "They are Lar

"The kind of work they have done
to make second base famous differs.

Why, Kelly would often forget to

Smoking to Be Stopped.
Statistics gathered through investi

city show that. 3,245 fires in 1910 and
3.332 in 1911 were caused by the care

of industry. Fire Commissioner John
son, who has been studying the laws
relating to the prevention of fires, as
well as to their extinguishment, has
discovered a statute which forbids
acts which endanger the health or
safety of any considerable number of
persons, and he is going to attempt to
make it applicable to smoking in fac
