ATHLETIC SLIDE IS FAVORITE
Nearly All the Apparatus In the Little
Folks' Corner Is Now Installed
and In Use.
The work of setting up the children's
amusement apparatus at Long View
park is rapidly nearing completion and
already many hundreds of children can
be seen enjoying themselves playing
on the swings and other forms of
amusement provided for in the special
fund donated by Mrs. Anna Davis of
this city. The children come early in
the morning, and almost any time dur
ing the day the swings, teeter-totters,
and athletic slides are well filled with
merriment makers. The work of con
structing the combination swings is
now being done, and in a few days the
children's paradise will be finished.
The main part of the playground is
along Fifteenth street near Fourteenth
Mtiny Popular l)e let m.
One of the most popular devices for
the amusement of the children is the
athletic slide, and many boys and girls
0 1 find no end of pleasure taking the wild
0 0;rlde down the incline. Equally as non-
u!ar perhaps is the giant strides which
are kept busy during the day. The
swings are filled, as are tht "teeter
totters," while those that are not using
the apparatus are enjoying themselves
0 i laving on the lawn.

the 3-omi fellow just learning tLe

In with. I doiPt go so far as to say
that all ball players are born and none
made. I'd be handing myself one If I
said that, for I made a sad hash of it
when r first started In the game. I
began as a pitcher, and It makes me
laugh to remember what a botch I was
at that end of it. But the top notch
players, when you nm them over, are
all bom players, and the artificial play
ers rarely mount to Class A.
"First rate batsmen, for example, are
always spunky, aggressive chaps, fel
lows who possess somewhat pugnacious
dispositions and who are 'afraid of
nothiug that walks, swims or flies. You
can always spot a bad batsman by the
way he pulls away from the plate. I
bate to see a ball player do that. It
always looks cowardly to me.
"The batsman who draws away from
the plate is always a perfect mark for
the pitcher. The tosser Las such a club
bist at his mercy and feeds him any
old thing that be likes, confident that
he will le able to fool the nerveless
"I like to see a batsman stand right
over the rock and await the pitcher's
onset like a soldier. It depends upon
a batsman's eye and his physical abil
ity as to whether he'd better Just meet
the ball with his bat or take a full
power swing at it. I nearly always
try to soak it with all my strength
when I get a good" one coming along.
I strike out pretty often trying to put
them away back deep, but I wasn't
made to just tap them, and I've got to
hit the way I was made to hit. Some
bntsiueu, however, go so wide of the
mark when they put their full force
Into their swings that it's lest for
them just to meet the ball and thereby
improve their chances of finding it.
"The full force hitter Is bound to
decrease his chance of nailing it by
the momentum of his swing, and some
naturally line batsmen can't bit a bal
loon when they put all of their power
into the swing.
"Willie Keeler is one of the batsmen
( who have just to meet it. He used to
try to soak It when he first began to
play ball, but he never got by that
way. His pcheme now Is to grab the
club by the middle and just tap the
sphere on the nose with a sort of half
arm swing when he sees the one com
ing that he likes, and his batting aver
