was just as effective against the port
siders as he was against right-handed
Cobb had left-handers pitch to him
until he was accustomed to the style,
and there is no reason why other left
handed batters cannot overcome the
handicap as Cobb did. A good way to
master it would be to cease talking
about it and another would be to bat
against left-handed pitchers in batting
practice as much as possible.
Splendid Tip on Golf.
Here is a bit of advice from
Andra Kirkably, the veteran
professional, at St. Andrews:
"Let me say nothing is worse
for anybody's golf than to
slavishly copy the styles of all
the better players one sees or
hears about. A man must be
lieve in himself as much as
possible, making the most of his
own natural style. Hardly two
first-class golfers play alike.
Take Vardon, Taylor, Braid and
Herd. Could any four men get
the same grand results by such
different methods? Here is a
new commandment for you:
'Keep your mind's eye on the
ball.' "
There have been several no-hit
games hurled thus far this season.

Almeida was the only ball player in
the National league who carried a
valet around with him. and insisted
on having his morning coffee in bed.

over the mercenary dispositions of
their hired men, but they can truth
fully say that not one of them pos

of Senor Almeida.
One day and Cincinnati was lead

on their way to a series in St. Louis.
Almeida strolled leisurely in behind

none left. I must buy them here, for

Rafael shrugged his shoulders and
walked away, twirling his bamboo
cane, and did not show up at the
Planters hotel in St. Louis until two

Hankus Pankus O'Day went into
action like a Limerick volcano. He
requested to know where the
hinges of hades Almeida had been.
Cincinnati had lost a ball game that
afternoon because a substitute third
baseman had booted away an easy
chance, so Mr. O'Day spoke freely and
with little restraint.
Rafael shrugged his shoulders and
palms. "I had no cigars." he ex
plained patiently. "ou cannot expect
a man to play his best when he has
