A LESSON FROM BASEBALL
Alway Sav Something Tor tk Time
When the Pinch Comes.
In bis book. "Pitching In a Pinch,"
Christy Mathewsou has some good nd-
Tice to offer to boys who would like
to lie successful pitchers, aud It Is
not hard to read in bis words a lesson
of life as well.
I "Some pitchers," says the veteran,
i ''will put all they have on each ball,
i That Is foolish for two reasons. In
; the first place. It exhausts the men
; physically, and when the pinch comes
be hasn't the strength to last it out."
j The pinch, it may be here interpolat
: ed. is what pitchers call the ini.dng
: that tomes in most ball games, nu
I which hangs victory or defeat. And
! when the pine!) conies it is a case of
' the baiter's net ve against the pitcher's
! "l'.iit. second and mme important, it
! shows the batters everything that he
; bus, which is senseless. A man should
I always bold something in reserve, a
I surprise to spring when things get
tiulit. If a man has displayed his
whole asMiituicnt to the batters !i! the
