McCarty Considered a "Pest" and Waa
Ordered Away From Gym.
Chicago. Dec. 13. Luther McCar
ty's perserverance was his principal
asset as a boxer when ho first an
nounced his desire to become a prtz
fighter, according to a story told by
"Bill" O'Conneii. a local trainer.
The man who on Tuesday night
vanquished Jim Flynn at Los Angeles
was considered a "pest" by O'Conneii
and finally was told to stay away from
the gymnasium. McCarty refused to
do as he was told and finally the door
keeper was Instructed to keep him
"In spite of everything I did to dis
courage him," said O'Conneii, "he
persisted in coming around. Finally
I tried to get him a manager, but no
one cared to take a chance with him.
Then he started out on his own ac
cord and found a manager himself.
He was an apt pupil and rapidly de
veloped Into a good boxer and I am
glad to see him successful. He now
has all the qualifications of a cham
jilon and I have to admit that I was
fooled by him. I expect him to be
come the white champion."
For Assault on Newspaper Photogra

eral weeks ago as Johnson was being

Ducks and Wild Geese Are Scarce In
Okla oma.
Pawnee, Okla., Dec. 13. In central
and western Oklahoma, where ducks
and wild geese are, as a rule, plentiful,
the hunting this fall has been poor,
barring the first week in November,
when the first flight went south.
Usually November hunting is good
on the Salt Plains near Cherokee, but
up to this time only stragglers have
been bagged. It is believed that the
big flight of mallards and other large
ducks has not taken place, and that
the first heavy storm from the north
will bring them by thousands.
Two weeks ago mallards were still
feeding in the wheat fields of south
ern Minnesota.

The season of 1912 was a hard one
for major league veterans, many of
whom were knocked out of the spot
light by Old Father Time. Perhaps
never before were so many stars of
the diamond retired from the big
leagues in a single season.
One of the first to fail by the way
side in 1912 was Old Cy Young. Be
fore the season was half over the fa
mous old veteran was convinced that
his days of usefulness on the diamond
were finished and he retired to his
Ohio farm, never again to be seen
in big league baseball.
Young, however, was not the only
star pitcher to retire from major
league baseball in 1J12. Mordecai
Brown of the Cubs and Wild Bill
Donovan of the Tigeis are other
former prize twirlers who flipped
their last big league games in the
season just passed. An injury to his
leg helped to shorten the career of
Brown, but Donovan played out his
string and ended the season as man
ager of the Providence team. Wild
William pitched for the Brooklyns be
fore the American League ever threat
ened to invade the east.
Kickapoo Kddie Sommers, also of
the Tigers, was another pitcher of
more than ordinary ability who was
lassooed by Father Time last season.
A sore wing assisted Pop in Sum
mers' case. Cy Morgan, the Cross
Roads cutup of the Athletics, was
another capable mound artist to take
a Brodie out of the majors. Cy was
sent to Kansas City by Connie Mack,
but went into vaudeville instead.
Other lesser lights on the hurling
hill in turn in their big league uni
forms last season were King Cole,
the boy wonder who led the National
League pitchers In 1910; Barney Pelty,
a time-honored member of the Browns,
who finished his major league career
with Washington; Harry Krause of
the Athletics and Clevelanu, who was
a marvel in 1909. and Jim Vaughn and
Jack Quinn, both of the Highlanders. I
Perhaps the catching department j
was assailed the hardest by Father i
Time in his 1912 attack. The back
stops Pop captured last season were i
in their day the best In the country, j
Four years ago Johnny Kling was
the greatest catcher in the National
League and Billy Sullivan and Gabby
Street divided the honors in the
American League. All three of these
former stars are through as big
leaguers, though Kling is retiring of ,
his own accord. i
The best known second baseman to
fade from the big league map last
season was Jim Delehanty. Dave ,
Fultz, head of the Players' Protective!
association, says Ban Johnson forced
Del out of fast company because
of the part he took In the strike of ;
the Tigers. This seems to be one !
time, however, where Dave is talking
through his hat, as Delehanty's legs .
troubled him for several seasons.
Germany Schaefer, who also earned
distinction as a second baseman for
the Tigers, is pretty near through as
a player, but he will be kept In Wash
ington in the capacity of clown.
Other famous old veterans who will
play little or no part in big league
baseball next season are Catcher
Charley Schmidt, once of the De
troit Tigers: Frank Chance and Harry
Davis, two former star first basemen:
Arthur Devlin, once the best third
sacker in the country; Briscoe Lord.
Danny Murphy and Matty Mclntyre.

Amenia, in. x.
'Gentlemen: Prior to Feb.. 1908, I was
located in Rochester, N. Y., suffering wi.h
LaGrippe, which developed into Tubercu
losis. My physician gave me one month
to live. I was tuaving terrible night sweats
and mid-day chills and losing flesh rapid
ly, having gone from 155 to 135 pounds. I
coughed and raised continually and oe
came so weak that walking a few feet ex
hausted me. On my return home, my
regular physician gave me little encoir
agment. My father, who is a clergyman,
heard of Eckman's Alterative and in
duced me to take It. The night sweats
and chills disappeared, my cough became
easier and gradually diminished and in a
few days I developed an appetite, the
first in months. I am now in perfect
health, back to 155 lbs. I feel certa.n
that I owe my life to Eckman's Altera
tive." (Signed) E. H. COWLES.
"Gentlemen: I cannot find words to ex
press my appreciation of what your reme
dy has done for my son. It changed
derpair into hope within two weeks aftr
he began taking It, and without any doubt
in my mind it saved his life. I wish to
add my endorsement to every word of hla
