We are used to Ty Cobb and .Tris Speaker tut when a young fellow, on the , Browns starts to burning up the circuit we all sit up and take notice. In the October Base ball Magazine the star: .first, sacker makes a few sage comments as fol lows: V 'Perhaps ;I. am hitting Just at, pres ent beyond mynormal stride, but I hope not. I have, always wanted to be a true three hundred hitter. ' TT have even indulged in the Tiope" that I might become, a . three ; fifty hitter. No doubt all batters whoare a little new . at the game, and who. are lucky enough to get away to a good, start have , similar ambitions and perhaps my own will fade away when the .pace gets hotter.. But I repeat; I . hope not. .' . ' ' ... "At that, my, record so far, hasn't been" unalloyed good luek. Early in ljio wasun x was soing a gooa aea.1 better, I suppose, than I have any right to expect when I sprained my thumb. At the time, as 1 remember It, I was leading the' league. Cobb hadn't got started yet and Speaker, while traveling at a fast clip, was ex periencing a little hard luck. . Per haps that sprained thumb Was only a good alibi for of course I might have slumped, anyway. But for all that the thumb In. Itself kept me from hit ting much above a - hundred for a good long while. I -.. .:'I wa out of the game -only two days on account , of the sprain ., but perhaps I would have been Just as well off if I had stayed a little longer. I got back into the -harness, because the club needed me and : because of a sprained thumb. But for all that the thumb bothered me. -, L-couldn't grip the bat at all well with that particular hand and I was also handicapped in fielding- . "Now of v. course, my han ds are in as good, shape as anybody's. :I mere ly mention my own small accident to show 'how minor things may mar a batting average. Very likely more than one batting championship hasfl been determined by just such small details which were eenerallv forgot ten by the, public long, before the sea son came to a close, and made not the slightest appearance in the records. In fact batting is" a rather odd thing at best and the part luck plays in a successful record , is a big and ever varying quantity. And not the least evidence of luck is Just such secon dary injuries as I speak of, which pre vent' a man from doing his best work Lbutat the same time don't loom up as important enough to cut much dash in the dope. One thing which has influenced my ball playing perhaps more than any other, is the fact that I am left hand ed. , Now I am not a port aider in other ways. .. I. write with my right hand and do most other things in the same way as a normal human being.-- But in baseball I am a true left bander, -1 throw-' left handed, . bat left handed, in fact depend mainly on my 'left hand ' "I grew into the habit when I: first began- to play baeeball which;,-was pretty early. ' Now of course it would be impossible for me to change. At first, I never .gave the matter much thought. It didn't seem to me of any great importance which hand I used most, so long'i as I used it to advan tage. But, a moment's thought will show that such was not the case, r I "As a pitcher, true enougH, it didn't make any difference whether I was a left banker or not. The preference is given to right . handers on the mound as elsewhere, but there is al ways room on any club, for a "south paw who ban win games. "When I began to play baseball In a small way, I was a pitcher. - I en tered the majors as a pitcher and have hurled a few games with the Browns.

If my port sldeness kept me from try ing for three out of four infield posi tions, it made me all. the better first baseman. - For at the initial sack I consider that the left-hander nas a slight; but decisive . advantage over his right handed brother. ; Throwing as he does from the offside of his body, lie can get a quicker throw to second, or third and Just as quick a delivery to home opiate; This ad vantage, slight to be sure, is never theless valuable and should give the Jeft hander a visible percentage In making double plays. . -i '. "The advantage - of .batting left handeid) is generally recognized. Most of the great hitters , have schooled themselves to bat from the near side of the plate:,- though ' they are left handed in no pther respect. ' Ob viously from this side the runner has a shorter distance to cover In reach ing first base and the difference, some three or, four feet is frequently enough to determine whether a 'batted . hall Shall be a safety or an out Again, the left handed batter swings-normally into his stride and should be in s position to make a quicker get away to first than as though he -batted from the opposite edge "of the platter." Joe Goss Once Held American Title Though - f He Was Englishman .- Joe Goss ' defeated Jack Rooke in sitxy-four rounds at Birmingham, England, on Sept 20, 1859, Just fifty eight years ago today.

Chicago, Sept. 20 Following an agreement yesterday between Charles Comiskey, owner of the - White Sox, and John McGraw, manager of the Giants, to play at least one game be fore the big troop encampments in the ast and West, they took up the proposal to keep the teams intact for a trip to France for a series of games in aid of American soldiers, provided the Sox and Giants win their respect ive pennants.- V ' ' Both McGraw and Comiskey are eager for the" trip to France. Co mlsloey figures it would ost him J7.000 to send the White,' Sox over, but he is willing to do this much for the soldiers. McGraw could not close the agreement, which must have the official sanction of Harry Hempstead, but the feeling prevails here that Mr. Hempstead will agree.

Six Innings were-flung' back into th irreclaimable past Ibefore the one hit was rerthcoming to impose its aggra vating but; unsurmountable ' barrier between Coveleskie and a" no hit game. Before the regular game - a team of Donovan's recruits played a six in ning contest with the Yankee regu lars. The regulars won, 5 to 0, and it was an entertainment of little ' inter est. Interoluib games are all right in the spring, when the season is "fresh. and young men want to get in shape. but a player, would 'be .more than hu man, who could arouse any errthuel- am toward them now. All this one did was to bring out nothing, of con sequence regarding the new men, and perhaps. to make the .regular Yanks a little more dispirited .-, for the game with the Clevelands. The recruit team array in the prac tice game was as follows: . Shay, third base; Ward, shortstop; Lamar, left fields "Vick, right field; Camp, centre field ;' De Noville, first base; 'Fewster, seoonkS base; Deufel, catcher; Hosa, pitcher.

' He had had many hard experiences, the kind that usually make or break a man, and to his credit be it said that they made him! Merkle played his firs game in the big show on Sept. 21, 1907, A "little over a year later, tho Giants and. the Cubs were tied for the pennant and an extra frame was play ed on' the Polo Grounds in New York to decide the issue, Merkle pulled ,the famous stunt that made ' his name synonymous .with ' "bonehead." - In failing to touch second base he cost his team the' championship, and a big wad of world's series coin. Players, press, pulpit arid public called down curses and abjurgations upon his head said head, in the opinion of "many prominent physlcions present at, the ; obsequies being of some, dense and solid material, prob ably xbone. . Lynching, tar and feath ers and boiling in oil were among the punishments snercrested hv tha unniir. ed rans, but all were discarded as be ing totally Inadequate for tsuch a crane. There was a general concen sus of opinion, lay and professional, that Merkle should immediately be canned. Manager McGraw didn't agree with the mob, and. refused to sacrifice Merkle to make a Gotham holiday. And -so it happened that Fred Merkle stayed on witih' the Giants, lived down his title of "champion bonehead," and turned out to be one of the best play ers on the'entire team. Playing with the Chicago Cubs, as he is now, he can he counted upon to be an Interested follower of the World's Series games whlcih will be played this year, by his old teammates s(nd if . you observe' a darkening of his countenance, you will know what he is thinking of.
