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
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.
