A GAME OF BASEBALL INFLU
ENCED BY THE MAGNETIC RAY.
Captain MacManus, retired alr-sklp
per, and his coterie of Master Alriga
tora leaned on the rail of the New
York receiving float of the F. C. & A.
Aerial line and watched a huge yellow
dirigible shoot past on the 5000-foot
level.
"The Hong Kong and Washington
express," said one of the younger M.
A.'s. "She's carrying the Hong Kong
baseball team to the opening game
of the International Aerial league sea
Bon at Washington tomorrow. That
ought to be a typhoon of a game. Good
thing they've got the mechanical um
pires perfected now. No living man
would stand a show umpiring IJorthat

think that any human being was ever
recklesB enough to act as umpire of a
baseball game, the way they did back
In 1912 or thereabouts. I wonder why
they did* it?"
"Why did they do it?" grunted old 1
Captain MacManus. "Because they
were men In those days, that's why.
They weren't like you delicate, alr
hourlshed infants who are afraid to
come nearer than 500 feet to earth for
fear of hitting the microbe strata.
Why, In my early days, we? Punc
ture my gas tanks! That reminds
me. I was the first man to Introduce

twas only national then, though?of
baseball. And that was when they
still played the game on the ground,
[n my humble little way I waa-the man
who first gave .people the idea of ele
vating the game to its present high
level."
"Help! Help!" moaned a young cap
lain. "They used to kill people for
perpetrating such things in the old
days." /
"Never mind," said MacManus. "The
old days are past. But it's the truth

demonstrate that airships and base
ball could mix. It was in the year
1920, which was before most of you
children were born, when people still
turned to stare up in the air when
they heard a ship's propellers whir
ring, and when the man who could
write 'Master Airigator' after his name
still was looked up to, to use an an
cient phrase. I was running a little
excursion packet, the 'Star Tamer,'
that operated between New York city
and Atlantic City, a two hours' run in
those days, it being before we began
to make much speed.
"Naturally, having this sort of a run
in those days, when people thought it
was something of a treat to ride in a
dirigible, we came into contact with a
lot of the most prominent people in
me couuuy. wiic ua? wo u uat o
board Liliian Russell, who was just as
young looking then as she is now, go
in;; down to spend a few hours at At
lantic City; next day we'd have a
senator from Mexico, coming up to
New York to take a look at the lights,
and next, probably, Bill Flinger, cham
pion pitcher of the New York ball
team, or some other great personage."
"Didn't you ever have Ty Cobv'"
askec the young captain.
"Ty Cobb?" said Captain MacManus.
"Who was he?"
"I don't know. I read about him in
an ancient history the other day,"
said the youngster. "But to go on
with your story."
"As I was saying* I naturally got
acquainted with these great people,
with hauling them to and fro between
the two resorts, and pointed out to
them where the Statue of Liberty used
to be, and so on, and pretty sobn I
was on friendly terms with a lot of
them, and of course the friendship
that I prized the most was that of Bill
Flinger of the New Yorks.
"Bill was as nice and sociable a
little fellow as ever you saw, and
he wasn't at all stuck up. because
he was going to be put in the Hall of
Fame. He'd talk to you just as if he
was an ordinary man, and many the
good fanning bee me and Bill had
when we had to go up to the 10,000
foot level and lay waiting for a storm
to settle down below.
" 'Bill,' I said to him on one of these
occasions, 'who's going to win the pen
nant this year?'
" 'We are,' says he. 'I'm In great
form tills year.'
" 'But Chicago's running you an aw
ful close race, Bill,' I said. 'They're
keeping only one game behind you.'
" 'That's where we want them,' says
Bill. 'It's a frameup. We're going to
run a-^ay from the other teams In the
league. Chi and New York will be
tied up to the last game. Chicago
fans will be willing to bet their heads
oft. We've got the money to bet 'em.
Then we'll win.'
" 'But how do you know you'll win,
Bill?' I asked.
" 'I'm going to pitch,' says he.
'Don't tell anybody. This is just be
tween you and me.'
"That made me feel pretty warm
toward the great man, and I put my
self out to make it as pleasant as 1
could for him when he was riding with
me, and he appreciated it and pretty
soon we were the best friends in the
world.
"Well, Anally it came the day before
the game that was to settle the league
championship, and sure enough, just
as Bill had said, Chicago and New
York were tied for first place, and one
same would settle the hash. That
night Bill took flight down to Atlantic
City with me to settle his nerves, and
suddenly he says to me, 'Mac, I'm up
against it.'
" 'Why?' says I.
'"I've got to throw the game to
morrow.'
"'Bill!' I says, horrified.
" 'Yes,' he says, 'that's just what I've
got to do.'
" 'You can't,' I said; and then I told
him what I'd done. Knowing tha't
h? was going to pitch- and win, I'd gone
_ %
it

with his new magnetic ray bearing ,
and begged and borrowed every cent
I could lay my bands on an4 bad bet
it on New York to win. 'If'you lose,
Bill, says I, 'I'm a dead duck.'
"Bill almost cried, be was that
broken-hearted. 'But I can't help It,
Mac,' says he. 'Morgan has ordered
that New York lose.'
"Of course, after that there wasn't
anything more to say. Bill had his
orders from the nation's boss to go in
and pitch the full nine innings, but
not to put any speed or curves on
me Dan, jusi 10 pui em ngai over
where the Chicagos could line 'em
out. Having the orders straight from
Morgan, he had to obey, of course.
" 'Don't think hard of me, Mac,' he
says, gripping my hand. 'It's fate.'
" 'I understand, Bill,* I said.
Morgan and Fate were the same in
those days. '
"I went into the steering turret and
sat down to think it over. It certainly
looked as if my gas-tanks were punc
tured and I was doomed to fail. If
New York lost, as they were sure to
do, with Bill pitching that way, there
wasn't much left for me except to
maks a nice little hole In the water
somewhere near Ellis island and the
Jersey shore. .- didn't like water in
those days, so I began to think. My
little job was to figure out how to keep
Chicago bats from colliding with Bill's
curves. It was something of a job,
the way Chicago was hitting in those
days, and Bill being ordered to serve
them nothing but straight, easy balls.
Did I despair? Ha! Little you know
of Captain MacManus of 40 years ago
who ask that question.
"When I got back to New York city
1 hurried up to Yonkers to see Profes
sor Ignatz, the man who knew more
about air-flying, electric currents, mag
nets and so on than anybody would
believe, and told him how I was fixed.
" 'Rest easy, Mac,' says he, and took
me out to his hangar and showed me
his new invisible, sky-blue, self-balanc

" 'Watch me,' says he, and up he
went. In two miuutes he was out of

"That afternoon 100,000 people were
In the grandstands when the Chicago
New York game was called. We used
to thin* that was a crowd In the old
days. Old Bill was in the box. Blink
er was at bat for Chicago. Bill sailed
one over. Blinker looked at It In
amazement It was a perfectly
straight, slow ball, right where Blinker
could kill It. Blinker pulled down
his cap, set himself and waited, ready
to knock It out of the lot The ball
came over. It was the same kind as
before. Blinker swung. But as it
was about to connect with the ball

Then he went back to the bench lool%

"That was the way It went the
whole game. Bill was serving up
straight, slow ones right over the
heart of the plate and the Chicagoa
were swinging at them, and missing
them because their bats jumped about
two Inches just1 before they met the
ball.
"With New York it was juBt the
other way. They'd swing at a ball
way outside the plate and the bat
would shoot over and- connect. When
the last man was out the score stood:
Chicago 0, New York 10. And Bill had
pitched as he waa ordered.
"You see, the secret was that J was
laying up there in the ajr right above
the plate in Professor Ignatz's invisi
ble sky-blue, self-balancing aeroplane,
with his new invisible magnetic ray
bearing right on the rubber. The ra>
would magnetize and control anything,
even a .350 hitter's bat. When a Chi
cago man would swing I would wait
until the bat was near the ball, then
jerk it up and let the ball go by. When
it was a New Yorker I'd guide the bat
smack against the ball. That, gentle
men, is how airships and baseball first

"What did you do with all the money
yon won?" asked the young captain.
"Blast your dynamo, you inquisitive

FINDING NAMES FOR NOVELS
Modern Authors Differ From Those of
the Past in Selecting Titles for
, Their Volumes. \
Modern novelists find it difficult to
find titles for their books, but, charac
teristically, Dickens could always hit
on a score or so of titles for his
books, and found difficulty only in the
selection of one from among so many.
For "Blaak House," for instance, he
drew up a list of twelve possible ti
tles?including "The .Ruined House,"
"Tom-all-alone's," "The Solitary
House," "The East Wind," "Bleak
House and the East Wind"?and sub
mitted it to Forster for selection. It
is wnrth nntln? that in the end Dick
ens -always chose the most effective
of the titles he devised.
Talking of titles for stories, how is
it that the eponymous title is shunned
by modern authors and frowned upon
by publishers? Surely the name of
your hero or heroine should be good
enough for a novel. Fielding, Smol
lett, Sterne, Thackeray, Dickens,
Meredith all favored the eDonvmous
title, and It Is certainly easier to re
member than any other. What could
be better than "Tristram Shandy," or
"Pendennis," or "David Copperfield,"
or "Richard Feveral"? Mr. Pugh's
"Tony Drum" is a perfect title,
worthy of that remarkable book. The
catchy title that so many modern
writers seem to strain after is, as
often as not, by no means easy to re
member, and when you have finished
the book you wonder what the title
has to do with it. Let us get back to
simplicity in this matter?London

Paul Poiret, the Paris milliner, crea

" 'I don't know what's come over
my husband. Instead of starting off
for the office cursing and swearing, as
usual, he went out just now with a
hop and a skip, happy and twittering
and whistling like a bird.'
" 'It's my fault, madam,' said the
maid contritely. 'I got the wrong

IN VERY PRIMITIVE AMOY
Finest Rice In China Grown In Prov
Ince Where Customs Never
Change?Dearth of Men.
London.?The Inhabitants of Amoy
plant and reap their crops as they
have done for centuries, and manu
facture products in the same way.
The results are not bad, however, for
about 30 miles from Amoy the finest
rice in China is grown. Here also is
the soil particularly adapted to the
Chinese lily. >
Almost all of the cultivation of the
soil is done by hand. The rice plants
are transplanted by hand 'and the
fields frequently weeded in the same
way. If a farmer has some surplus
plants he throws them in an unused
corner near-a well and those who lack
enough for their planting may have
them for the asking.
Such implements as are in use are
extremely crude. The native plow
does little more than scratch the sur
face, and the simple and Inexpensive
harrow is usually drawn by an Indian
cow or bullock or sometimes by the
water buffalo. Horses and donkeys are
rarely used.
The emigration from this district
has been very heavy, and the male
population or wnoie villages is large
ly limited to old men and boys. Wo
men are to be found whose husbands
left for the South soon after marriage
and have hardly been heard of since.
Occasionally they return after years
of abBence'and purchase or adopt a
son for their Chinese wife, so that
their ancestors may be revered and
they themselves have some one to
Natives of Amoy. >
look after their graves. -Having thus
provided for the future, they go back
to their adopted land and return to
China only to die on their native soil.
In many cases they never return, and
their wives wait patiently in vain year
after year.
On the highest point of a mountain
at the entrance to the Amoy Harbor
stands a pagoda, more than 1800 feet
above the sea and visible for miles.
This pagoda, called the Southern Sen
tinel, is said to have been erected by
a faithful wife that her husband,
whoBfi return she had awaited In vain,
might know that she had been mindful
of him if he came back after her
death.

cause of death as ptomaine poisoning,
due to blighted chestnuts which the

will also be recommended <to the leg
islature by W. W. Moore, adjutant
and inspector general, in his annual

Letter to the members of the house
and senate follows:
"Representing the National Guanl
Association of South Carolina, I am
writing to you to request, your earnest
attention, as a member of the general
assembly, to the fact that the grant
ing of a regular annual appropria
tion of $25,000 to the National Guard
is an absolute necessity if South
Carolina is to continue to hav^militia

its s~??Hirfc has brought up plainly

stzto th'i question: Do they want a
Nation*! Guard or not?* And there
Is no question but that the over
whelming majority, for reasons un
necessary to state, want a state
militia. / ,
"Unless the appropriation is in
creased from $12,000 to $25,000 it will
not be possible for the militia to re
main in the National Guard, and the
withdrawal from the National Guard
would mean the discontinuance by
the United States government of the
alternating annual appropriation of
$60,000 and $80,000, and the calling
in of practically the whole equipment
?arms, uniforms, tentage, etc. The
state then would have to spend thou
sands of dollars in purchasing new
equipment and would either have to
greater increase tne annual appropn
ation or reduce the strength of th0
militia.
"The enlisted men of the National
Guard perform a patriotic duty with
practically no pecuniary recompense,
and the people of the state should
not, and do not, ask that its National
Guard continue to labor under finan
cial difficulties when'Jthe wealth and
prosperity of this great state are an
nually increasing.
"The following list will show that
the State of South^ Carolina gives less,
hot only^in proportion to the strength
of its militia, but in actual appropri
ation, than the other states:
"Alabama, 4,000, $37,000; Connec
