Some years age I eaeoantered the Kid when he was temporarily tree from

that he was in love also that there was a rich widow In love with him. 'Hon

"That night, while the Kid and I were in a Broadway cafe, the rich widow

mood. When she saw MeCoy, she lovey-doved for farther orders, and any

crowd will win out, the Borderland
route will lose the best opportunity It

HILE the baseball fans of
the country will readily
admit that the pitching
feat of Rube Marquard, of the New
York Giants, was a wonderful per
formance, I am Inclined to believe that
the real merit of his feat is not so
thoroughly understood," says Orvie
Overall. "In my opinion, Marquard
has performed not only in record
breaking style, but has set a new rec
ord that will stand for many years to
come. It is doubtful if his record will
be duplicated in a generation by any
major league pitcher, wnere the rules
are strictly enforced and where the
task of winning a game is made just
as difficult as scIene and class can
"There is a posibility that the feat
may be equaled in some minor league,
which I seriously doubt, but for any
man to win 19 straight games in a
where the pitcher is opposed by the
cream or tne baseball world and
where class meets class and the ablest
generals of the diamond are plottrhg
for your downfall, is an achievement
that must go down in history as a
record to be shot at by the future
greats of the big brush heaving de
partment. Instances may be cited
where In the early days of baseball
some pitchers have won more con
secutive games than did Marquard.
but the fact must not be overlooked
that baseball then and baseball now
are so widely different in style of
play, rules of play and pitching, and
in the science of the game, that com
parisons of records made then and
now would be ridiculous.
"Naturally, some will say that Mar
quard was lucky to hang up such a
great record. Granted. Baseball luck
is a part of the game and it is one
of the biggest factors in the success
of the championship teams. But lucK
must be strongly backed up with class
before it can become an effective
feature in any performance upon the
diamond. When class enters into com
petition, the element of luck is bound
to crop out at some stages and prob
ably turn the tide of battle one way
or the other. Pitching , success de
pends almost as much upon the luck
of the game' as upon the ability of
the pitcher, for no pitcher can -win a
