BOSTON, Oct. 13 "Tlic king Is dead
long' live the king" we thrill no more At

ling ns "master hitter of the game",
ajiothrr monarch rclBns Instead and
stalks triumphant to the throne, tho
crown of sunt Is on his head Hank
Gowtlv rules, unmatched, alone'
For when thiotish ages wo look back j
on stais whose fame has traveled far, not
one could hit it tloicer whack or give tho
Chore a harder Jar a home run slammed
outside the lot, two doubles walloped to
the stands, todav made (Jody king of i
swat a willow sceptre In his hands'
And this new star In halldom, who fills
the world with awe, was once In heav ,
thraldom to Mr John McOravv. '
But John, with eyesight .loudv and
vision rather dim. could not "see' Mr
Gowdy and so he trailed him ilf smiles
of glee you'd Raze upon, Just mention
Gowdy's name to John).
And here tho muse Is put to shame
alio can't, she can't describe this same.
It was won and lost and lost nnd won,
some several times ere tho game was won
lind from two o'clock till the sun lnd
ot our Iiands were shaking, our brows
svero wet, as for twelve mad Innings we
eat In thrall to tho thrills and chills of
that game of ball.
And the Braves won out by a brand of
wit, a strength of soul and a nervo and
Ktit which probably never will be sur
passed In all the years that The Game
shall last.
In the tenth the were "whipped," thov
were "down and out." when two men
scored on Baker's clout, nnd we- sUhed
"stjod night" In the gathering glonm, and
reached for our hats and started home
But hark what's that? there's ,i thud
a. crash as Gowdy swings for a home
run smash. Then a hit or two, when
the need Is great, and Moran comes Hot
ting across the plate, and the rooters
throw their hats nsldc foi the tenth la
c'r and the score Is tied
Then at last. In the twelfth, comes the
looked-for break Joe Bush throws wild
with the came at stake, and the run
comes In as the looters roar and the
Braves have conquered b 5 to 4!

Personal Touches in Sport
(By W. A. McG)
Howdy, Mister Gowdy. with your biffing bludgeon black,
We hate to see you swing it, but we're slad to see you back.
We wish you all the best of luck, but hope you break an arm.
Both legs, your neck and skull, but trust you do not conic to harm,
Truly, you're unruly with that battle club of yours,
Sending little baseballs on such airy, lengthy tours;
Can't you lean less heavily, just to Rive us hope?
If you do not halt a bit, you'll fracture all the dope.
Tell us, were you jealous of the fame F. Baker sot,
Clouting of the horsehidc till it flew out of the lot?
You've been inconsiderate, you have had a gall,
You should now be satisfied; do not hog it all.

This great ball team of Philadelphia was quite as celebrated as the 1914 champions. All of the players have not been identified in this picture, maybe
some of the old-timers will recognize them. Seated, left to right, are M. McGeary, catcher; "Al" J. Reach, second base. Second row W. Fisler, first
base; J. Senscnderfer, center field; Captain McBride; Crane, position unknown, and John McMullen, pitcher. In the thiijd row "Pop" Anson, with arm
akimbo, is the only one recognized. "Pop" played third base. Others who might be in the picture are L. Meyerle, J. Radcliffe, E. Cuthbert, G. Heubel,
G. Bcchtel and Tom Pratt. There is a vast difference in the appearances of the Athletics then and today.

One of the most surprising results on Satur

them from scoring moro than two goals.
