New York has only one man hitting over the .300 mark. Meyers, the catcher. Fletcher, though, can practi cally be called a .300 batsman. Tt looks to me as if this last mentioned player has corrected a batting fault, and l sus pect he will be a much feared man when at the plate in the big games. Now the Giants, with only two men around thff .300 division, appear very weak on the attack. If their pitcher’s should happen trt fall down and not deliver a* they did during the season, of if that season’s stride would not be gotSd enough to withstand the five or six .300 hitters of tile Philadelphians, them the Athletics would have an easy time slugging their way to the world’s championship. It is Just such points that make Important series interesting and baffle the man who tries to select the winner. it Is not hard to see that the Mack pitchers, weak as they have appeared at times, may have an easier time holding the weak appearing hitters of the Giants than the New York crack flingers will have against the slugging Mackij>en. Giants Score Few Runs During the last two or three weeks Mathewson, Marquard and Tesreau have lost games because the Giants eotild not score for them. One or two runs In a number of instances was the margin which gave opponents of Mc Graw’s club the victory. The pitchers have held the opposition, down all that could be expected, but the New York ers could not register at the plate. New York has shown more even strength than the Athletics in the trend of the race. The Giants, until Sep ebr 21. had lost as few as four games to one team and as many as eight to another, their average against each I -I * 11— BEST SODA IN TOWN ; Adams Drug Company Specials - -Uv-O-Lax There is health in every bottle.

Details of the charges also have been ;ept secret, although one allegation Is said to relate to the alleged evasion of the duty on gasolene Imported Into Italy for his automobile. team being very strong. They have won as few as ten games from one of their rivals and as many as 16. This makes a very strong showing and shows con clusively that New York has been play ing ball every day the whole year and that weakness hasn’t cropped up for any length of time for this season of 1913. On the other hand, the Athletics have trounced New York 16 times and their lowest average was against Boston, having beaten them only 10 times up to last Wednesday. Chicago, a fifth place club, triumphed over the Athlet ics on 11 occasions and the margin of losses by the Athletics was wldu as the minimum and maximum is 'three and 11, showing quite a range of form. The Athletics have one great f iling in their favor and that is that they can put seven men who have played regu larly and can be termed regular play ers, including the pitcher and catcher, that bat right handed against any left handed pitcher that New York puts in. The two left-handed hitters are Baker and Collins and neither is weak against off-side pitching. On the other hpnd. \yben a right hander faces the Athletics they can send in seven left-handed batsmen hav ing only Barry and Mclnnl^ hitting from the right side of the plate. By this plan Manager Mack will not de tract from the strength of his team to a fielder in right as the left-handed Danny Murphy may not be quite as fast a fielder in rights as the left-handed hitter, Fiddle Murphy, and Daley may not be as good a batsman es Old rintr. Clubs Appear Well Matched Summing it all up, I want to reiter ate the statement that the contending clubs appear well matched. I believe, though that if the Giants win the first game, they will win the series much easier than will the Athletics if they capture the opening engagement. I believe that Marquard and Demaree will be the most effective pitchers in the series. Of course, Mathcwsou has always given the lie To those who pre dicted his downfall and I will not pre dict^it in this series. But I believe the style of Mayquard and Demaree will be the more successful that Matty’s. Tes reau is liable to run into trouble against the* Athletics. This whole series will not be a ques tion of base running and tactics so much, excepting, of course the selection of pitchers. It will be just a case of pitching a.nd batting. If the Mack twirlers can hold New York down just fairly well I believe the Athletics’ bats men will bang#out enough runs to win for them. Qn the other hand, if the Giants show'a reversal of batting form and their pitchers hold the Mackfnen down at all, New York will win easily. Scientific tactics will not have much to do with this series, but the game will be competently handled and there will not be as many mistakes as in the se ries of 1912, when in every game mis takes which were vital to the best in terests of the teams were made. The batting and fielding records of each club show very interesting figures and these give the Athletics the ad vantage over the Giants. The Athletics in the averages published last Sunday had accepted a total of 5669 chances with <?nly 197 errors, the Giants having accepted 5768 chances with a total of-j 224 errors. This gives the Athletics a comfortable margin. As mentioned before, the Athletics lead the Giants in batting. In (his re spect, as in fielding, the Athletics led their league, while the Giants were third in batting and fifth in Cieldlng. In long hits by clubs the Athletics lead their league with an average of .397. The Giants rank fifth in their league with .356. The Giants do not lead in any one departmea^of team averages, while the Athletics lead the American league In every department. On the other hand, the pltcheis of the Giants collectively are far and away ahead of the Athletic pitchers. New York Has Good Reserves The Giants are better fortified with utility players, having Herzog, Grant and McCormick, the latter the depend able pinch hitter. The only Infield re serves the Athletics have are Lrftvan and Orr. Neither can hit very well. One thing In the Athletics’ favor is that they flinched the pennant two weeks before the time for the series to be.lln and will be able to work and study In order to prepare for the big battles. I thought they showed de cided Improvement In the last few games against our clubs and they have the men who should brace and get the machine running sgioothly. However, as I have skid. I think that pitching and batting will decide the Issue—that Is, the club which combines those two qualities best will win and IherO will be no other factors In the conflict worth mentioning. It is Impossible to say at this timo who will be the actual winner of the 1913 world's series and I wouldn't feel like hazarding a guess for the Athletics and Giants arg about equally strong. Therefore I have not picked the winner exactly, but I have tried to show how the series hinges upon several tilings and the team which best follows out that campaign will be returned the victor. Huge Prairie Dog Town A prairie dog* settlement In Colorado Is estimated to contain 300,000,000 Inhabitants. Were the snakes, owls, rabbits, lizards and horned toads which live with the dogs to be counted In the population of the place would reach the 1,000,000,000 .mark. The figures are not strictly accurate, for the government has nevfer counted these dogs In the census But any one who has seen such a city knows there-are more than 10O dogs to the acre, and this city is 140 miles long by 50 miles wide, containing 4,480,000 acres, says Our pumb Animals.
