A sprinkling , of fans sometimes refers only to those within reach of a boxer's corner. Harry Payne Whitney's Hwfa won the Invitation handicap at Piping Rock the other day. Hwfa! Now will the Pullman Car Co. be good! Billy Papke came back the other night just like Abe Attell. . "Larry Lajoie was hit on the base line by Oldring's drive and was out," according to an eastern baseball scribe. It might have been worse. P'rinstance, Larry might have been hit on the left field bleachers. T. Roosevelt applied' his strong glass to the St Louis Browns and diagnosed their trouble as too little us? of the Big Stick. Tris, Speaker, the man, doesn't emulate his name, but his bat speaks volumes. If the Washington team didngive him so much competition Walter Johnson ought to win a few more games this season. Benny Kauff leads Ty Cobb in everything but batting, fielding, base stealing and scoring runs. RAIN KIND TO SOX PITCHERS CUBS HAVE STARTED By Mark Shields Gentle and kindly rain is helping the White Sox in these troublous times. Manager Rowland has been experiencing considerable trouble with his pitching staff recently, a de partment which has always been the strongest division of the South Side team, and he is glad to have a slight vacation during which some of the veteran slabbers can take it easy. Eddie Cicotte will not be seen in either of the remaining games against the Athletics, according to present plans, but will have recov ered from an injury to his hip by Sat urday and will be shot against the Washington club on that day. Faber and Jim Scott will operate against the Mackmen, with Joe Benz a pos sible starter. Benz has had a long rest, and, .though' he did not make an auspi cious start against the Yanks Mon day, he was more at fault in his field ing than pitching and should be good for frequent exercise. Joe has al ways been a puzzle to Washington ajid Mel Wolfgang has also troubled the Nationals this season. Once more we are told that the Sox are slated for a drive to the top of the American league. This great onslaught is much .overdue. It was supposed to be impending when the South Siders copped a game in Washington and then played a tie. It was again on the cards when two games were won in a four-battle set at Detroit Then came a setback at the hands of the Yanks and the drive had to be started all over again. This well-known drive certainly should be started, but there is little hope so long as the team plays as at present and so long as some of the athletes now regarded as stars re tain that glory.
