A KNOT HOLE IN THE FENCE Recently we read a news item which hearlded the fact that during the pres ent base ball season one of the play ers In the Western Association had knocked two home runs because the ball he hit went through a large knot hole in the fence which surounded the park. Who said there was no such thing as luck in the world? Why, if the God of luck did not keep constant vigil over some people in the great base bal game of this life, they would never get to first base. But this writer never was able to establish himself in the graces of the God of good luck. While we have played the game with as much tenac ity as the average participant, we would regret to see our bating aver age thrown upon a screen before the world. We would not whimper over our losses and disappointments, ac cusing the Great Umpire who rules the destinies of our life of partial ity or unjust decisions. But every time we go to bat some break of the game deprives us of the coveted hit which might enable us to' score and receive applause from the grand stand. Sometime we con nect with the ball, but some chesty player invaribly idolizes himself with the fans by making a freak stop or catch of the drive that would have gone for a safe it for the average player who has god luck. There is no such thing as a knot hole in the fence that encloses the base ball park of our exeperience. So far as we are concerned if the fence was made of net wire with a two inch mesh and the team of this life was using base balls the size of buck shot, if we ever made a long drive the ball would Mr a pnrHHon in the nettftipr and Luuitu L.-.k into the mit of an agile fielder. Or the fence might be removed entirely and we would knock a pop up only to be caught out by the catcher. After all, some people can only accomplish great things in this life by great strength and awk-ardness. Mr. and Mrs. L. V.
