CARATS FROM THE BIG DIAMOND Tris Speaker was a hig disappoint ment to the handful of fans at the Polo (".rounds. Thc only time he reached first bn^e ?as in the ei_*hth inning, arhaa he walked. Xunamaker would have had a perfect average at the bat had it not been for n wonderful catch of his line drive by Graaey ln tbe eighth. The dcterminntion of I.ee I-ohl to win tho game wt.s r-hown by the manner ifl whieh he kept his pitching *.taff toiling m the wamiBfc-up ecraai of the laid.

The Giant star haa heen in bad physical condition most of the year. Findlng himself badly ran down, he took care of his health first, ae any eane man would, with no rital issue al stake. Any tnik about a crueial trip for the Giaata is all bunk. The GianU had the pennant won last April. It is far better for Hcrzog to take a rest now and tha big eriea la good ahysleal eonditioi than to try to continue playing, -n,l tbereby be a -.-less adjaaet arhaa aeeded most. No one who has ever Irnown Herseg eoald ever i1|-ure that he would under any conditions deaert his elub without just cause. Men of De.tiny There ?re certain men of deitiny in baseball, as well as ln other aig_ag walks of life. This doesn't neeessarily mesn leading itars, such as Mathewson, Wagner, Cobb, Lajoie and Bpeaher. Frank liakcr waa one of the men of baseball destiny. Eo wai Rubo Marr-unrd. to a flsarhed degree. Rube had the knack of flopplng from one spotlight te aaotbey. Wherevet he lit, there the ereat white flame burned upon him. He first Bipped hivninrt.en Straight Then he picked up a twenty-one inning affair, the league reeerd for leag g-mes until several years later, when he concluded a twenty-two inning affair on the victorloua side. Another man of baseball destiny Is Renny Kauff. Benny led tha Fed. circuit twice nnd f?r a r-prll drew even more publicity than Ty Cobb. And then. around a yeur ago to-day, Benny sagged. He had failed to bat .300 or aaywhere Bear the mark. Apparently, he was on the verge of dropplng out \o'w, a year latfr, he A not only back among the league leadera making ges tures towards the top, but is on the verge of dashing tnto what promisee to be the most r-pfrtacular world's eerles of recent yeara. And Benny, with the Destiny attachment, is quite likely to be a leading feature. He may win lt on a play or he may lose it on a play, but he isn't very lieble to be neutral ln the matter. The Giant Average John J. MeGraw needi thia world leriei badly?r.eedi to win lt badly?or needi badly to win it by way of obtalnlng a fairly respectable average. To dute he has Indulged ln four of these October champlonshlps, with only one triumph eirainst three defeats. His lone triumph came when Matty eat ln wi*h three ihut-outs. But his last three start.*, Bgaiaat the Athletics nnd the Red Sox, have been replete with woe and trouble. if he drops this next October seeeiofl hia ehaasplaashly percentage will be .200. Collectlng the loaer-a end is bettrr than not collecting at all, but over twelve years between victories leaves a .Ir-prossing strttch. So Why Bother? If (olonel T. Raymond Cobb can beeome involved in the morose proceisei of a slump, why should tho average citiien beeome depres-ed when affairs at times fail to break gently? If Cobb can light upon an extended slump, that makes slumplng an Inevi table adjur.ct. A f?w weeka h-s-o Ty was up above .390 in his drive for .400. He was over forty points beyond his closest rival. Last week he developed the lame sort of slaBBB which struck him tvvo years ago ln September, when he went to hat tWOBty-fear times without a hit. ln place of a comnianding lead, Cobb started the present week only thlr teen poiatl above Speaker, who has been maklng a game, desperate attempt to repe-it h:s 1916 triumph over Ty. In addition to thi* close call from Speaker, Cobb's drat rn nt a '.<?'? year wns tom to shreds. There is nothing tougher in any game than to have B big lead suddenly shot to p,ee>** to figure an easy canter to victory, nnd then in ;i flash find the situation ch_ng-*J to a neck-and neck affair. Atul Bpeaher gave fair proof last >ear th.it he was no light opponenf to toy wit* or take too lightly. Le.t-Handed Values Dear Sir: I understand from the figures that the White Sox have won two-thirds of their starts Bgalast left-handed pitchers. This may be important -and thea, again, it may not depending upon the comparative pitching strenpth of tire .National and American Leagues. It is BSy contention that ihe Natteaal Leagae lefthaadara are straagar. Am I nght? F. L. H. The Aaericaa Leagae carrics Ruth, Leonard, Il-.rper, Russell, Williams, Koob, Megridge) < oumbe an.l i. lew others. The National League has a longer array ..I ll ia Schupp, Benton, Sallee, Rixey, Marquard, Vaughn, Ceoper, Nehf, Tyler, etc All ia all, National Leagae lef'.handers are stronger. But the White Sox heat Ru;!i and Leonard four out of leven gamei, and theie twe have r.n Miperiors on th** portside map. Back Home for Joe Cjilcbs Fdd'.e I olliai can bat above .450 for the remainor-r of the eeason, he is due lor his Brat >ear under .:'0i?. The handicap now is we'.l beyond reason. I'.nt Joe Jaeheea ha.-. arrived. After struggling below .2<Q for moit of the year, the Grcenville slur-ger mo<.ed up to .300 on Sunday, and at the pace he it new tmvalllag it ia a:mo>". a oartaiaty that he will be well over. Jackson has been battint around .340 for the last month, and the impetus promises to carry him at a fast clip into the big serrcs. Collina made two rallies in attempta te gt'. b:ick among JO0 people, but he could never extend any batting streak Ion;; enough to ca'ch up. lacksoi M in ItlS.

Game Not Proteated CHICAGO, Sept. 1S--Contrary to previous announcement, President Johnson. of the American League, said to-night that Jame? C. Dutui, president of thfl nevelar.J e!ub, had not pro tflflted the game which I'mpire Owens forfei'.nd to Chicago a week ago laat Sunday. Tha conteata, therefore, will atand ni a victory for Chicago. Dunn previouilv had announced that he had I proteated the game. If possible, Benton's game was even more impresslve than that of Schupp, but the Rube looked to himself in the troublesome times. He pulled safely through without the aid of three time? ly double plays. Benton pitched just snch a game as that which marks the master. Without men on bases he took things easily, remembering that he had eight ftipporters. But whenever a Cub got on track of a run the Rube was a dif? ferent sort of proposition. Then he pitched with all he had, and that was quite enough to sati-fy Chieago fans that Benton never was better than a*. the pre-ient time. I'nable to Bunch nita The Cubs kept peeliing away at Ben? ton. but didn't get very far. They gathered nine hita off his fork-handed delivery, but could not bunch these ef fectively for real action. The Giants, lea the other hand, had to< be content with a half dozon safeties, but they took occasion to Bpply t'nes? where they would de the riost good. It is true thnt most of the openings were presented because ef Cab mis plays. But the fact remains that New York wa- always ready to avail itself of opportunity. Tlie only fault that might he found with the Giants in volved somewhat slipshed base run? ning. This department seems to have been slightly Bskew for a month or more. ('arter pitched very fine ball. but ha was in bad almeet from the Itart Pete Kildaff itarted Carter*s troubl** with a high throw 0:1 Burns in tire ve-ry first inning. George raced to third when Robertson singled to righ*:. Kauff s igled to right, BCOrlBg Burns and pu\ ting Davey BB the near corner. Zim? merman rappc-d *o Pechous, and Rob? ertson was smothered at the plate. Fletcher rolled te Kildaff and into a doublo play. In each of the first. second and fourth ; innings Chieago batters singled off Benton. But on each occasion two were out. Dilheefer hit safely with only one gone in the Bfth. Playiag for a tie, Carter was laatrueted te sacn.ice, which he did cleverlv. Flack mado a tine bui, ; but Burns raced away back for a line eateh that kent Benton's shut-out in tact. Another grand eateh, this time by neini-j Zimmerman. denied the Cubs a tie ,n the sixth inning. Zim's clutch took an -xtra base hit off Pete Kildu.f. A momeat later Walter singled to centre. He was caught -itealing for the third out after Larrv Deyle fanned. A fluke hit helpc.l New York to an? other run In the aevaath IftniBg. Two were out when Smith's . rp grooadeT took a treaehereas bound away from Kilduff. Herzog's under:itudy then stole second base. Holkr walked. Law Me? Carty drove a clean single to centre, Smith eeeriag. Benton struck out. Zimmerman on Job Agaia, la the seventh. Zimmerman thruat back Chica-ro's challenge for a ' run. Pechous singled with two out and i Btela second base. Dilhoefer scratrhrd ! a a'.ow roller down the third base foul , line that looked perfeetly safe. Bat ! Zim dashed la for one of his copynght |ad bare-haaded piek-upr* and without ? itraighteaiag nailed tha runner at Brat by inches. ln tho eighth inning, when tha Giants put the game well boyor.d the ! faint hope ef tho most optimistic Cub, New York gave ita most apt illu-tration ? of how the baies ought no*. to be run. ln this section tho visitors ' twice before anybody had been retired. I That New York did:-'*: get a basketful ! was due to the slipa on the patha. Burns irew a pass as a srarter. . Robertson hit to Pechous, whose thro-v for a force-out on Burns went through Doyle. <>n fhe error the Giant lef fieider reached third. Kauff was bit by a pitched ball, filling the bases. Zimmerman singled to centre, seoriag Burns and Robertson and putting Kauff on third, Heine himself moving to sec? ond on the throw for Kauff. Fletcher hit sharply to tha fcox. Kauff, trapped off third, darted back to that station as Zimmerman raced for It Dil hoefer's relay from Carter hit Benny on the shin3. The ball bounce.l right ; into Pechous's hands. Zim, who had raced down blin.ily, was in turn trapped between second and third, Kr-uff being held at * meanwh'.ie. Fletcher then stole eecon ! bas.-. Bat Kauff wasp't yet out of tha wooda. For the second time he waa trapped whea Smith hit to Kil.luff Then. on an aUempted double 8t<?l, Smith was nailed by Pilhoefor and Dov.e before Flet'her coirld BCOM from third.
