WHEN JAKE THOUGHT FAST
Little Stories Told About Baseball
By W. A. Phelon
THERE aever was bat one Jake Beckley he was unique and unapproachable.
He was the only one of hie kind, and for nearly 20 years he was one of the
richest cards that ever played the game. Always a mighty slugger, no one
ever accused him of having the lightning thoughts of a Kelly or a Buck Ewin
concealed about him, but he went right along just the same, saved lots of his
money and quit well satisfied.
Towards the last of Jake's career, the taunts and gibes of the younger genera
tion worried him a little. When an ambitious youth, finding all lockers in thel
dressing room occupied, threw the old man's clothes on the floor with a shout of
uangway for live ones!" Jake was annoyed immensely. He began to realize that
t L Mnf k Pky1 d as be was never famed for foxy craftiness, he;
i eared his day was done. Just to make a final flash and also make the younger
pneration look foolish, Jake sat him cfewn alone, and did some heavy cogitating
Laboriously enough, he evolved a aetttfae of upsetting the opposing outfit's base
running and then went grinning to the field to make a demonstration.
For several years, the hostile had been showing up old Jacob's arm an arm
uiuchf the critics said, should have been embalmed along with Pharaoh Necha.'
A u r n on nrst u was tte custom to start a double lead
off the bases. The pitcher, as a rule, would peg to Jake and the runner on third
would instantly break for home. It would take Jake till perhaps 8:30 p m. to
realize what the sassy thing was doing; then he would throw home, and the runner
would beat the ball by 20 feet If he hadn't sUrted soon enough to beat the
throw, the ball was almost sure to fall half way upon the sod, and he could walk
in while the fuming catcher regained the helpless pill.
Jake had done some great figuring. He felt that he couldn't make the 90 foot
throw home with old-time strength, but he still had tremendous power for a heave
of maybe 60 feet. This was his idea: The first time the enemy tried that double
steal, he, Jake, mstead of lingering round first, would be far up towards second;
he would take the ball, let the runner on third do as he liked, send the ball to
Bradiear, who was playing second, and get the victim before the one coming home
COUltOIe' J Vs? n a-hal idea aad Je chuckled gleesomely as h9
wobbled round first and waited for the play.
Ere long the scheme began to take definite form. Sure enough, a hostile was
on third and one on first and both, laughing derisively at poor old Jake, were
edging far off bases. Beckley nonchalantly strode full 35 feet up the line, and
then agnaled to the pitcher Like a flash the pitcher threw, the man on third broke
for home, and the man on first, supposing that Jake would peg at the plate, scam-
pered for second. Beckley hooted hoarsely, wheeled, and drove the ball redhot to
second base, hitting Brashear full upon the jaw and knocking him insensible'
- irJ t PJaBae ' tte glorious scheme, he had overlooked the formality
or telling Brashear anything about it.

Too Many Battles Cause "Has Beens"
Champion WilHe Ritchie Thinks Boxers in the East Fight Too Often and as
Jiesalt They "Go Stale" Many Heavyweights Now Seek Title.
By TH0S. S. ANDREWS
ILLJE RITCHIE, the light
weight champion, is of the
opinion that the eastern box
ers fight altogether too often, and he
thinks that Is the reason for many of
them going- stale and being termed
"has beens" long before their time.
"The trouble with most of the east
erners." said "Willie, "is that they want
to fight every week or every other
night If they get the chance. The re
sult is that the strain becomes too
great and before long they go stale
and then are obliged to lay off six
months to recuperate, whereas if they
took care of themselves and boxed at
reasonable intervals there would be ao
necessity for going stale. It is the same
with some of the great sprinters. They
overstrain and that is what causes the
stall ness. which often comes just be
fore big events and then they are ac
cujed of 'cold feef and the like.
With the western boxers it is dif
r rent Out on the coast they go 26
ri -inds in the big battles and prepare
.accordingly for them. They get through
' rt gular course of training and when
u is over they take life easy for a
lim" which gives all the muscles a
chance to relax and get back into a
i uural state. They may start slower
in their fights, but thev are surer u
the- go along. They do not try to rush
i. atters unless the opportunity should
present itself. Then, again, some of
itie clubs hold four round bouts out
west, hut they are so short that the
boxersdo not have to over exert them
selves as they would be obliged to do
in a contest of eight or 16 rounds.
Yhen a boxer is moving along at a
rapid rate for 10 rounds he certainly
uses up his vitality as much as in a
marathon match, where he woald work
much slower. The short bouts are all
right, but the boxers should use some
judgment and not try to work so of
ten, -mat is what kills them off be
fore their time. To my way of think
ing a boxer should never try to fight
oftener than once a week, that is, in
bouts of eight or 16 rounds, and even
two weeks apart would be still better,
for It would give them more chance to
recuperate properly and not keep up a
constant strain of the nerves."
Since his return from Europe Al Pal
zer, the big Iowa farm boy, who was
pushed to the front as a white hope
by the veteran, Tom 0Rourke. has
been claiming that he is as much en
titled to the heavyweight championship
M any one else. Al was matched to
meet JacK Johnson in Paris. June 26,
but from reports received I am con
vinced that the match is off for some
time to come, if not for good.
The fact remains that Palzer has no
right to claim any title until he can
wipe out his decisive defeat at the
bands of Luther McCarty. The latter
is the man who is now recognized as
the real champion of America, having
won his title in the elimination tour
neys he entered, and by defeating the
best of the aspirants at the time Al
Kaufman, Jim Flynn and Al Palzer
In battles over the 26 round route, but
which never went the full distance.
Jess Willard and Gujaboat Smith
have appeared on the horizon as
worthy contenders, but they will have
to fight it out between them or take
their turns at meeting McCarty. Pal
zer cannot get into the running for the
title again until he beats one of the
two big fellows now to the front
Willard and Smith. If big Al can whip
one of these men, or both, he will have
a right to demand another match with
Luther McCarty for the championship.

at the same time the chances are that
McCarty would, have beaten the
Britisher Just a quickly and the one
mistake he made, or rathex his man
ager, Billy McCarney. was in not tak

Another hope who appears to be
coming back after a defeat at the
hands of Gunboat Smith is George Ri
del, the Boer champion, who seems ro
be getting better with each fight and
who appears to hare conaiderahla
class. He will have to run the gaunt
let, however, before he can hope to
grab off the title.
At present there are more promising
heavyweight fighters than we have
for years and the indications are that
Jack Johnson would not have the easy
time running through the list now
H?at,he had Previously. And besides,
the big negro champion is getting to
the same point Jim Jeffries was in
when he lost to Johnson through lack
of condition. Johnson has been living
a life of ease for some time now, with

OSTON, Mass., May 1. "Muggsy"
McGraw"s desire to pay $5000 for
a youthful recruit probably
saved to the Boston Americans one
of the most promising players who
has entered major league circles in
many years. Infielder Janvrin is the
athlete in question.
Last winter McGraw played a vaude
ville engagement in Boston. A big
dinner was tendered the Giant leader
during his stay. President McAleer,
of the Red Sox, was, of course, prom
inent among those present. During
the evening baseball was largely the
topic of conversation. It was only
natural that McGraw and McAleer
would do a little private fanning.
"Pretty good infield you have, Jim
my?" remarked the stategic "McGraw.
"Suits me pretty well, Mac," re- I
yiieu me rwston president.
".Don't expect to make any changes,
do j our' inquired McGraw.
"Hardly see where any of the1 re
cruits have much of a chance to beat
out Stahl, Yerkes. Gardner or Wag
ner." answered McAleer.
"I'm on the lookout for a short
stop," said McGraw. "They tell me
that Janvrin is a pretty good player.
Since he hasn't a chance to break Into
your infield. I would like to make a
deal for him."
"What would you be willing to
give me for him?" asked McAleer. "I
would be willing to take Marquard
"Hardly," replied the Giant man
ager, "but I would be willing to
vrite a fat check with figures that
looKed like ?5O0O."
"I'll think it over and let you
know later," answered McAleer.
McGraw's great desire to secure
Janvrin firmly decided McAleer that
the youngster should receive a thor
ough trial with the Red Sox. It was
a very fortunate thing that he did,
for Janvrin looks like one of the
classiest youngsters in years.
