ALL RECORDS BROKEN BY N.Y. CROWD Immense Throng Out to See Matty Strive to Keep Giants in Championship Struggle right from the outset has been afflict ed with 'stage fright" in its most malignant form and that he has foozled a dozen chances to win any of i . three games that the Giants have lost. The ' grand stand managers" figure that McGraw made his first "horrible mi :ake" when he pitched Marquard instead of Tesreau In the opening* frame. They figure that Tesreau, with his terrible speed and his "spltter," aided by a dark day, would have com pletely baffled the Athletic artillery men. FIND PAI'LT WITH MCGGSY Demaree should not have been started yesterday with Marquard in shape to start, according to the self appointed managers. They point out that Marquard, having been through Tuesday's fight was cured of any ner vousness and could have worked as •smoothly as a clock, while Demaree, working in his first world's series bat tle, necessarily would be nervous and Ineffective. A groan went up from the Giant delegation at Philadelphia yesterday when McGraw sent Grant to bat in the ninth in place of Marquard. Grant at his best is a mediocre hitter—little better than a .200 man—while Mar quard is one of the best batting pitch ers in the league. They cite a number of other inci dents to convince their neighbors that McGraw has foozled, but the "Little Napoleon" seems not to mind it. Walrus Ivory Imported By Chinese Carvers Tt may develop that travelers in China, particularly the Hongkong region, can soon buy curios made from Alaskan walrus tusks. Elephant ivory is imported in great quantities fey the carvers of Canton and Hong kong, and the American consul gen eral at the latter port urges that shipments of walrus ivory from Alaska be made. He says that Chi nese ivory carving is becoming more and more popular among tourists and foreign importers handling Chinese poods. The use of walrus ivory ap parently would be more a matter of attractive opportunity than any dis position on the part of local ivory carvers to use any particular ma terial. Japanese ivories imported Into Hongkong /or the tourist and local trade have been running re cently to carved walrus tusks and Similar work, and Chinese carvings •re brought into competition with this product. Before the revolution, about eigh teen months ago, there was consid erable trade in the manufacture from walrus ivory tusks of tobacco pipe mouthpieces, handles of fans, thumb rings and peacock feather tubes for mandarin hats. These articles were cent to Peking where they were dyed a green color, resembling the color of jade, but since the revolution there has been very little activity in the manufacture of such goods from wal rus tusks. The demand has fallen off considerably and the trade is confined to making cigarette holders, tooth brushes and chopsticks. The value cf walrus tusks is $280 to $400 Hong kong currency, or $140 to $200 gold, per picul of 133 1-3 pounds. Elephant tusks are worth $700 to $1,200 Hong kong currency, or $250 to $800 gold, per picul. The elephant tusks are more serviceable. LONDON WHISKERS FALL BEFORE LADY BARBERS Lady barbers are growing in popu- Isrity in London. There is an in creasing demand for this class of "lady help.'' Many Americans over here just now are loud In their praises of the appearance of the prepossess- ing young ladies, neatly attired ln ■white, deftly wielding the scissors end razor. Tl ?re are quite a number of these lady barber establishments dis tributed throughout the metropolis. It is now one of the "new callings" about which so much is being writ ten. In the West End they are recog nized as quite necessary adjuncts to the young "men about town." PARIS AUTO TRUCKS TO USE RUBBER TIRES M.

McCONAUGHY Novelist and Baseball Expert NEW YORK, Oct. 11.—About 60.000 fans were headed for the Polo grounds early today to pull down the walls for a chance to see what may be the last battle of the great series of the Giants and Athletics for the baseball championship and the winner's end of the gate receipts. It may be the last chance, for if the Giants are defeated today this cruel war is over. The 6 to 6 victory of the enemy in Philadelphia yester day gave them a 3 to 1 count on the four games of the series. It is the last stand of the Giants and all of the advance information is to the effect that that grand old last Btander, C. Mathewson, will be shoved out on the battlefield as the one hope of our gang. If Matty can not stop them, they can't be stopped, and there will be no stopping done after this afternoon unless the old warhorse can bring them to a full halt in today'e battle. Nobody can say definitely who will be offered up by Connie Mack —and Mack won't. McGraw has said noth ing, either, but he doesn't have to. He is in a position where he has to pitch Matty. It is probable that with this lead of two games and the con fidence lt will inject into his bunch. Mack will produce Shawkey or Carroll Brown. Old man Plank, the dean of the southpaws, announced last night that he would pitch one more game If Connie Mack called on him, and that this game would be his last. He is nearly 40 years of age and Is through with baseball after this series. It will probably be Mack's strategy to take a chance with young blood and confidence today and save both Plank and Bush for a sixth game, if it should be necessary. CAN MATTY DO ITT ' There is another interesting angle on it —both to the enemy and Mr. Mathewson himself. In the last series he could not beat them two games. They say he can't do it in this one. We shall see today. The real marvel of this campaign is the comparatively few cases of heart failure. There was a time in yester day's conflict when it looked as if the more valuable part of the population of Philadelphia was about to throw a unanimous fit. And when the final out was made and that one lone run stood up for them, they weakly groped their way out of the 'grounds clinging to the railings of the grand stand. The battle falls naturally into two parts—their half and our half, with our half taking the longer fall. Mr. Demaree, the celebrated artist, went in to fling some baseballs for us, as per schedule. You would not ex pect a retired piano mover to think much of art or artists, and Mr. Rube Oldring went right up and hit Car toonist Demaree a wicked three base blow. They did not score in this in ning, in spite of this outrage, but they engaged in that enterprise to a small extent in the second. This began with Mr. Stuffy Mclnnes, Who, from his sobriquet. Is also ln the piano mover circles of activity. He pasted one to center for a base. Strunk sacrificed and this brought up Barry. Mr. Barry, it developed later, was out yesterday to get all of the hits that he had failed to collect in the preceding battles. This amiable am bition might have been foiled if Mr. Merkle had refrained from dropping his foul. As it was, Barry lammed the ball against the left field fence, and excellent running on the part of Mr. Burns confined the swipe to the two base limit. There was, however. THE SAN CALL, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1913. no known method of preventing Mc lnnis from scoring except winging him with an elephant rifle. Merry-go-round halts Then there was a lull for an entire inning. In the fourth this same end of the batting order piled on Dema ree to beat the band and gave a wonderful exhibition of free hand hit ting and free and easy base running. Mclnnis was abolished at the go off, but, not being called upon to sacri fice this time, Mr. Strunk lashed out cne at young Mr. Herzog that nearly destroyed our third sacker. Imme diately thereafter Mr. Barry con tinued on his loathsome way. this time slamming a single to center field. On the strength of this lick Mr. Strunk, who will probably be quite a runner some day, went all the way around to third. He beat Burns' throw by a slide, and Barry kept right on to second. Getting a man on second and third on an infield hit and a single is taking all that any baseball law has a right to allow. Then Mr. Schang came along with the first of a series of cleanup hits. This marvelous Infant hammered in all four of those six runs—that's all he did, except catching a great agme and throwing like—like a Schang. Chief Bender was np next and the chief doesn't pose as a hitter. He just splashed one down the first base line. But Mr. Merkle tried to play it so quickly that he failed to play it at all. This meant another run. E. Murphy went out, but the illustrious piano mover, Mr. Oldrlng. stepped in and made another hit, but Collins, who failed to connect all day, went out. Two more n the fifth let theirl" out. Our gang was gultless of a single run until the seventh inning. MACEDONIAN TOBACCO FIELDS LOST TO TURKEY The fields producing the best Turk ish tobacco in the world, the kind that Is sent to Constantinople for the consumption of the sultan, and which is sold at the highest prices in the American market, are about to change ownership.

Cripples Beat Us, Says Matty Breaks in Luck Against Giants PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 10.—To night it looks as if this series of stories on the world's series was nearing its end to everybody ex cept the gentlemen of the New York team. We still believe we have a chance and I have no in tention of putting "to be con cluded" at the end of this story. It has never been my habit to whine and complain about the "breaks" in baseball, but I want to say that we lost our opportuni ties in that battle today. Bad judgment on the part of New York players and had "breaks" in the luck beat us and put us so far down on the series that nothing but a determined uphill fight can get us into the going again. Re member, that the Boston Red Sox had us three to one on the series last year and we crawled up on them until it was three and three. Also bear in mind that the Giants made an uphill fight today after they were six runs behind, and only missed tying the score by an eyelash. "Chief" Bender was pressed to the limit in these last two innings and in the ninth he was spinning the ball over with everything on it that he had. He had used bad judgment in pitching to some of our batters in the eighth, so the Athletics maintained, and his care lessness had nearly resulted ln a tied score. In my opinion he did not use bad judgment, but was just dangling on the ragged edge ready to slip over and let go. The wonderful Indian went through the last two Innings on his nerve alone, applying every bit of his craft to win. HOW INDIAN WAS SAVED From the New York bench I could see him sitting between "Connie" Mack and Harry Davis while "Danny" Murphy and "Ed die" Collins swarmed around him, warning him against the "grooves" of our men who were to bat in the ninth inning. "Doc" Payne. the Athleics' trainer, was fanning him with a towel throughout the recess and mopping him with a sponge. The Indian went back and won on his gameness, but one little slip on his part or that of any of his backers in the last inning would have resulted in his fading and tying the score. He could not have gone another inning. It seemed to me as though two games of ball were played here today. In one the Giants were weak, helpless and outclassed, and in the second we were fighting, hitting, clawing and had the Ath letics worried and warming up pitchers, so different were the two parts of the contest. If I wanted to go back over the battle I could pick out any number of places where the "breaks" cost that one run we needed to tie. To my mind, the big, bad break we got occurred in the eighth inning, when we made our final rally, with tire score six to three against us. Herzog began the eighth with his first hit of the series, a line drive to left field. He was forced at second base a minute later, when Doyle hit a terrific grounder at Collins, who partly fell in fielding the ball, but who recovered in time to throw Herzog out at second base. Three or four feet either way, and that ball would-have been through for a clean hi.. It was smashed square on the nose. A NOTHER OPPORTUNITY LOST But our big opportunity came when Burns hit to left and Sha fer put a long triple to right. This left the tying run on third base, with two out, and so upset the Athletics that they gathered around the Indian in the box, while Captain Danny Murphy walked out from the bench and joined the council of war. This gave two or three emergency CHRISTY MATHEWSON (Copyrighted, 1913, by the Wheeler Syndicate.) pitchers an opportunity to rush out to left field and begin to warm up. Bender was fighting for air. Murphy batted the ball hard at Collins, and the man who never boots threw out the last batter of our side. Bender had been saved. "They won't break for us," said McGraw in the privacy of our bench as the let down came after the inning. "One more blow and the Indian would have been gone." "We'll get him yet, in the next inning," said some one. We didn't. Bender had received Mack's hypodermic in the mean time. 1 was surprised to see the In dian start the game, for I fully expected that Mack would again pin his faith to a youngster, hold ing the edge of one game on the Beries, saving Bender for tomor row. But he fell gack on his standby, with only two days' rest, and we thought we could get him sure, because the club had hit him so hard at his first start at the Polo grounds. He looked good when he started, with lots of stuff. We were playing him to weaken as he did, but our pitch ers had not been able to hold the Athletics so that we could keep within decent range of them. It was a lucky thing for the Indian that he had six runs under him when he began to go, for he needed all of them. WEAK PITCHING THE CAUSE The weakness of our pitching was responsible for the third de feat. The Giants' pitching staff has not looked anything like the performers who worked all through the season. They have all been nervous and unsteady and the team has not played its regular game behind them. On the other hand, the Athletics are the greatest team I have ever seen. American leaguers have told me since the series got un der way that they have looked bettor against us than they did all season ln their own league. They can all go when the stakes are run high, as has been evi denced by the fact that a new hero is developed each day. To day's heroes were Barry and the brilliant young catcher, Schang, who made a great name for him self in this series. Barry, who has been hitting weakly throughout the series up to today, got three out of four and drove in three runs besides scoring two. Schang got two other hits In the pinches and walked the other two times he was at bat. Therefore, it is evi dent that a laurel wreath of a different size has to be gotten out every day to fit one of the Ath letics. They are money players. For the first time during the series our regular lineup, ex cepting Meyers, began the game, with Bnodgraas in center field. Merkle on first base and Shafer covering third. Both Merkle and Snodgrass were lame and these limps cost two runs. As things turned out, those two runs were what we needed more than any thing else at the end, Just to keep us in the game. On three appar ent occasions we missed oppor tunities to get these runs. There were five possible ones. For in stance, in the fifth inning we had Murray, who walked, on third, and Cooper, who was running for McLean, on first. McLean had singled. Nobody was out, but Merkle fanned. McCormlck went to bat for Demaree and used bad judgment in going after a wide ball, as he had three balls and two strikes on him. He lined one out over Shortstop Barry that looked safe, as it was hit very hard, but Oldring came ln fast and picked the ball off his shoe tops. It was a magnificent catch. If that ball had got away It would have gone for two bases sure and we would probably have had two runs right there. GREAT CATCH, BUT LUCKY I am not saying it was not a great catch, but it just goes to show what money players the Athletics are. It was a play that a man could not make once out of five, I don't care who he is. Mclnnis dropped a fly into cen ter field a short distance back of second base to begin the second inning. With two good legs Snod grass should have caught that ball in his mouth. As lt was he did not even come within touch ing distance of it because he was forced to limp painfully. This gave Mclnnis a safe hit. Strunk sacrificed and Barry hoisted a lit tle fly down toward first base, Merkle hobbling after it. As he turned to make what would ordi narily have been an easy catch he gave his Bore ankle a twist, was thrown off his balance by it and missed the ball. This was followed by Barry's first three bagger, which drove in the first run for the Athletics. That little muffed foul did it. After the game McGraw was discussing in the clubhouse Snod grass' game attempt to reach Mc lnnis' fly. "I ought not to have tried to use him," said the boss, "but that is the way luck always breaks. I figured I ought to get away with it. But, of course, he would be the outfielder on whom the hard run would be forced." Again, Strunk got a base on balls from Marquard ln the fifth after two were out and lt grew run. But we should have won the game anyway. This story is like crying over spilled milk. Mc- Lean played good ball and hit well and the rest of the boys played great in the latter innings. CITY MAY BUY TRACKS OF OLD GEARY RAILWAY CO.

"WIVES DRIVE MEN TO DRINK" EXPERT BLAMES POOR FOOD S STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Oct 11.—"The average American woman does not know what she needs and she knows so little about food values and the proper preparation of eatables that she drives the American man to drink," was the way that Dr. Caro line Cook Coffin, president of the San Francisco Housewife's league, scored the American housewife in her talk before the Palo Alto Civic league. "America is becoming a nation of drunkards," she declared, "as well as a nation of dyspeptics. Food improperly prepared makes the man mentally and physically uncomfortable, and he takes to liquor as a relief." m Doctor Coffin made a strong plea for the municipal market. She considers the housewife the most important factor in the eco nomic and commercial world, spending, as she does, from 75 to 90 per cent of the nation's income.
