Wise pitchers nowadays reserve
their pitching strength as much as possible. The youngster on the lots and the college star are putting every thing they have on the ball with every pitch, regardless of the lead their teams may have, but usually when a pitcher has acquired sufficient skill to enable him to perform successfully in the majors, he watches that old soup bone with as much care as a mother watches her first born. Once a pitcher in the majors has acquired a standing, it is rarely that he warms up except on the days that he is carded to pitch. Of course, he is out with the rest of the team tak ing batting and fielding practice, but he is avoiding those sharp, quick throws that do so much to sap the life of his arm. No better example can be seen of wise pitchers in this respect today than those two pastmasters of the art, Mathewson and Johnson. You fre quently see McGraw's star go through | a game in which he is batted fairly : hard, yet he generally manages to 1 keep the other fellow's runs at a low er figure than his own team's. He is j putting them over the plate when his j team has a lead and taking chances on the men behind him and in doing so he is saving himself many unneces-i sary throws in trying to fool the bats men. men. With Johnson it is somewhat differ-! ent, for he hasn't the hitting team be hind him that Mathewson has and he has to work harder as a rule. How-l ever, whenever his club has any kind of a lead at all, you will find him stick ing them straight over and leaving the rest to his fielders. The reputa-] ticn these two stars have acquired, no doubt, stands them in good stead, but: whatever it is, they seem to get away with many games without working at their fastest stride. In fact, Johnson claims never to have thrown a ball with all the strength that his powerful right arm possesses and it would be mighty in teresting to see him work through a season at top speed. Mathewson has been in the big league thirteen years and, although it has been predicted each spring that he would slow up, he goes along, win-! ning game afte'r game, and usually. ending up each season with a record] that places him among the best in] his league. Johnson has been pitch ing m the majors six years, but from the way he conserves his strength, there is no reason, barring accident, why he should not last as long as , Both these great stars deserve all the success that lias come to them,: for they have paid strict attention to] their knitting, not in a single instance to the detriment of their clubs, but to the advancement and longevity of their own usefulness to the game. Down in Texas in the fall, winter! and early spi ing Chief \\ ilson s strong rig t arm summons sweethearts to ie telephone. Its a fact. Chief sel-] dom talks about anything or anybody,; ' . ie otber nlght on a train he lor got himself so far as to tell the story He said: "Down in South Austin we have some nice neighbors and they often use our telephone. We get a lot of calls for members of a family that lives nearly a block away from us. The daughter, Nan, has a sweetheart and the son, Bill, has a sweetheart, and these sweethearts often call up G OOD telephone service depends largely upon mutual courtesy* The telephone is more useful to those who talk as if face to face, for civility removes difficulties and facilitates the promptest possible connections. As in other intercourse, it often happens that two or more people wish to talk with the same person at the same time. Without courtesy con fusion is inevitable, and the confusion is greater when the people cannot see each other. The operators must be patient and polite under all circumstances, but they will do better work if they meet patience and politeness on the part of the telephone users. The Bell Telephone Service enters intimately into the social and business life of each individual. The best results come through the practice of mutual courtesy.

My folks used to always send me over to tell them when they're wanted, but last fall I doped out a scheme to save time and shoe leather. The family has a flat tin roof on the house and now when the telephone call is for Nan or Bill to come over I just go out in the yard, pick out a nice little Texas cobblestone off the flower bed and heave it so that it strikes the tin' roof. Nan and Bill know the signal all right and they always come over. One day last spring there was an awful hailstorm hit that tin roof, and bless me if the whole blamed family didn't come a running over to our telephone, thinking they were all wanted."—Pittsburg Gazette-Times. New York Sun: One item that has not been considered thus far in prog nostications anent the world's series is the fact that the Athletics will be familiar with both playing fields, whereas some of the Giants have not even seen their rivals' park. Shibe park has no special peculiarities, so the Giants will not be handicapped much there. The Athletics' advantage j s rather a negative one, being large ly only the absence of a disadvantage which would be the case had they not played against the New Yorks this season, thereby learning the odd angle of the right field wall. Kddie Murphy seems to have mastered these. __ . , _ ^ ew }[ork Hvemng Sun: Josh Be y cre pulled one on McGraw recently wblcb amused the little Napoleon greatly. The fact that it was uncon sc ious humor on the part of Josh adds & rea t-ly f° the story. When the Giants were * n Cincinnati the outfielder called on his old commander, .

When the game of Aug. 30 was stopped the score was 8 to 6 in favor of Philadelphia, and New York was at bat in the first half of the ninth. The Giants had a man on base and sent McCormick to bat for Merkle, but he was retired, and then McGraw made his protest, claiming that the spectators in the center field bleachers, waiving their straw hats, reflected the sun's rays into the eyes of the batsman. Brooklyn. N. Y„ Sept. 13.—It is sel (join that an emergency sticker shat ters a pitcher's bid for a no-hit game, as i, a rry McLean of the Giants did Wednesday when batting against George Tyler of the Braves. The last time anything like this happened in the major leagues was July 28, 1909. "Lefty" Pastorius of the Superbas then was twirling against the Phillies, and he held them hitless until the ninth. Then Billy Murray, boss of the Quakers, lifted John Titus out of the controversy and delegated Dr. Leon Martel to bat for him.

Heinie Berger of the Naps was headed toward a no-hlt game Sept. 26, 1907, while twirling against the Yankees until Clark Griffith requested Norman Elberfeld to bat for Jack Cliesbro in the ninth. The Tabasco Kid promptly tore off a single, and Berger did not pitch a no-hlt game. The same season, May 20, Tom Hughes of the Nationals held the Naps to a bachelor safety, said safety being manufactured by Harry Bemis, who did a pinch-hitting trick for Glen Lieb hardt in the third Inning. Sept. 10, 1907, Joe Doyle of the Yan-' kees confined the Nationals to one safety, made by Mike Kahoe, who got; Into the game because Jack Warner had been injured. The only National league contest in which both teams were held to one hit took place between Pittsburg and Chicago, the morning of July 4, 1906. "Lefty" Leifield and Mordecai Brown; were the pitchers, and the safeties were made by Jim Slagle and by Lel field himself. Charley Buffington of the Phillies is, so far as Is known, the only Na tional league pitcher to hurl two one hit games in succession. He held the Indianapolis club to one safety Aug. 6, 1887, and three days later treated Anson's old Chicago White Stockings In the same manner.

Reform makes more fuss and does less good than anything In the world. One beauty about poker as an in vestment is that you do not have to wait until the stock market opens to learn how you lost it. One of the things that keep the old world straight is the fear of getting caught. It Is hard to make an engaged couple realize that they will need more than one chair to go housekeeping. One reason why politics is popular is because you can talk it all day and not know a blame thing about It. As soon as a self-made man gets married his wife begins making altera-1 tions. Any time you see a man waiting on himself when he is home you can bet that he is mad at his wife. When a girl calls a man by his first name he'd better look out for his last name. Experience is good stuff, but we all pay too much fo* - it. The man who says he is as good as 011 are means he thinks he is a durn sight better. You have just as much good luck as bad luck, but you are always ad vertising the bad luck. What is the good of a woman if you caa - t admire her?

But the women take their externally. A woman can take a page ad. of a bargain sale and get as much comfort out of it as a man can out of the sport ing page. Some girls are so changeable that they won't wear the same complexion twice. A cross-eyed man won't try to make googoo eyes at the girls, but a girl who stutters will gossip as much as any other girl. The fool men don't know it, but there are more married women boost ing their husbands than there are knocking them. Maybe you haven't noticed it, but the dumbest men are those who talk all the time. When there is "company" at the house and she asks for a drink of water a boy will dig up an old cracked cup, but a girl will polish up the best glass in the place.

A Great School for Eastern Montana. Great preparations .are being made for a large enrollment at the Poly technic Institute. Ever since this pop ular institution was organized near Billings four years ago. there has been a lack of accommodations for those who wanted to enter. This past year a campaign for funds, to be used In the enlargement of this Institute, has been carried on throughout the east and as a result the school is able to erect a shop building, a girls' dormi tory, and a dining hall. This makes it possible to double the present ca pacity of the school, and at the same time give far better advantages to the students. The new teachers who have been added to the faculty will mean much to the.life of the school. A director of athletics and physical training, who is a graduate of the Y. M. C. A. Train ing School of Chicago and who has for the past year been director of athletics in one of the Chicago high schools, will give a large part of his time and at tention to the athletic teams and the physical welfare of the students. A teacher of domestic science will or ganize this department and have charge of the dining room. A teach er of shop work will have charge of mechanical engineering and manual arts. !
