"After the fight stories -were
circulated that a cQte'rie'ofigamb
lers had a finger in -the -pie to
'job' Say lor, but there wa.s-not a.
word-of truth1 in it. BbttoSaylor
and his manager told mcafter
ward that if Saylor had started to
make the pace earlier, theyiinight
have a kick coming, -yhich-was an
acknowledgement- that' they were
content. ' '
Mandot had Saylor almost out
in the seventh, ninth an'd eleventh
and but for a broken hand would
doubtless have stopped him."
CAN YOU DO' IT?
To throw cards is not hard. It's
the "know how" that counts.
Hold the card between the mid
dle finger and thumb of-the right
hand, the index finger resting
against the edge, near the corner. -Throw
the card into the air with
a smart jerk. As it leaves the hand
the forefinger should impart a
very high rotary movement. By
practice you can learn to throw
cards considerable distance. .If a
card is thrown into the air at an
angle of 75 degrees it will return
to the starting point.
ON THE WAY
One sweetly solemn thought
Comes to me o'er and o'er;
I'm nearer the opening game,
I'll wait but a few weeks more.
Nearer the grand stand seat, f
'Mid the crispy peanut shells ;
Nearer the old home plate,
Nearer the hoots and yells.
One wish pervades my soul,
One wish my heart entreats
T;hat I have that day the price
Of1 one of those front row seats.
