the coming meeting ot the grand
lodge in (ock Island all that it
should be in the way el a creditable
affair, and it is gratifying to note
are meeting with enfonragement on
every hand. From the letters read
at Thursday evening's joint meeting
of St. Paul and Metropolitan lodges
the indications are that the grand
lodge will bring to the city a large
number of people. It is estimated
that no less than 1,500 delegates
Knights and ladies will he in attend
ance. The time being the first week
in October, the session lasting four
days, and the Bock Island Knights
realizing the task before them in
entertaining so large a number of
people, hare appealed to the public
for cooperation and aid in the under
taking. That the response will be
general is conceded and that the peo
ple of Beck Island will show their
accustomed spirit of enterprise and
hospitality there is no doubt.- . y
The local Knights have now gotten
the matter fairly in hand and in a
few days Chancellor Commanders C.
J. Searle and Lee Plan, of the two
commmanderiea, will designate the
committee on delegates. The occas
ion is one which will interest all oar
people and enlist their efforts to

"Before X joined the Boston Bed
Stockings,'' said A. G. Spalding re
cently, "I used to go np to the bat with
the sole object in view of hitting the
ball from the shoulder as hard ae I
could, without any idea as to what part
of the field it would so or on the
gromdorin the air. All I thought of
waa to 'knock it out of the lot, as the
boys say. But I soon found that there
was something more in batting than
that. I think X got my first idea of
what batting shonld be from defending
my wicket in cricket when we went to
England on that baseball tour in 1874.
At any rate, I got into the habit of try
ing to place, the ball, instead of hitting
at random, and from that time. I real
ised that to try to tap the ball to right
field over the heads of the infielders
and short cf the catching reach of the
outfielders was about the right caper.
"The new method of handling the
bat, 1 remember, came to me all of a
sodden. I bad been for some months
batting very poorly while hitting from
the shoulder, a base hit being the result
in about eight of ten times at the bat,
and even less. One day I thought I
would try something different, and, get
ting some one to pitch swift balls to me,
I went in for tapping them to right field
so that they would fall safe, and after a
few trials np went my batting average
of base hits at a jump, and especially
did my hitting prove useful when run
ners were on the bases. The boys be
gan to want me to follow them at the
bat, because I hit bo as to bat them
round toward home. Then it was that
I first practically realised that a swift
ly pitched ball to the bat which was
just tapped by the bat that is, hit
lightTy, but not like a 'bunt 'would go
to the field, sharp from the bat, with
surprising speed; besides which, I could
govern its direction better than it was
possible in hitting it from the shoulder,
"Talking of swift pitching, " contin
ued Mr. Spalding, "I used to think that
we old time pitchers could send in a
pretty speedy ball nnder the rale of the
undernana tnrow, but none of us ever
equaled the speed of the cyclono pitch
ing ol tne. present time winch comes
from the regular overhand throw. Then,
too,- with all oar practice, we could not
command the ball in delivery, as is pos
sible in. overhand throwing. "New
