It has not been lt llnltely eleeide-d no far, whether tho system will bo oxtenled to Florida lo. cation or not, this depending largely ill""! the installation of n numbering system there, according to Mr. Otto. As steps were taken some time ago to have nn up-to-date system installed, however, It Is believed that nil of the it uulronie nts will be met and that Florida will share with Lnurluni In the free delivery. Mr. Otto and another federal official will return to Laurlum about the lat ter part of next week to work out the details of the symtom. It Is likely i there will be four carriers nt the start, but the routes will depend largely up on whether Frorlda Is Included. Post master Vnlro has nlready suggested the most practical routes both with nnd without Florida loeallon, and these will be gone tiver thoroughly nnd alter ed If It Is found necessary.

Ty Cobb, Jack Knight, Kid FJber feld and Duffy Lewis are the hardest batters for Vean firegg to pitch to. says the Cleveland Press. None of (hem has hit. Gregg very hard, but they have made him work hard, nnd he would rather see unv other four batters In the league at the plate In a pinch. Cobb has made five hits off Gregg In twelve times nt bat. Lewis two in nine times up. Knight two In ten, nnd Elberfebl five In thirteen. "These fellows have always hit balls I didn't want them to hit," said Gregg. When I have tried to make them hit curve they have hit fast balls and nave nit curves when I tried to waste them. "I finished a game nt League pnrk In the last series with the Red Sox and Lewis faced me once. I wanted him to hit my curve. 1 wanted a fast ball on the outside and didn't put verj much stuff on it. Lewis reached over and hit It for two bases. "Cobb watches the ball all the way lip, and Is hard to fool. He doesn't hit at bad balls. lie generally waits for the ball he wants ami If he doesn't get It he will take a pass. One big reason why I don't like to see Cobb nt the plate is that he's very liable to get on, and he's a bad man on the liases. Klberfeld works a pitcher ns hard as any player In the league. He can't he driven from the plate. He will duck his head If he sees the ball is going to hit him on the head, but he won't move his body and he won't budge his feet. He stands stock still no matter how close the ball comes to hlm. "Jack "Knight stands pretty well back of the plate and is in position to see a curve ball break. That makes 'him a hard man to fool. If a pitcher tries to waste one on him he'll reach across the plate and hit It. He's liable to hit anything any time." Glass Beads In Demand.
