Dee Moines, Iowa.—-" Pour years ago
I was very sick and my life was nearly
spent The doctors
stated that I would
never get well with

and that without it
I would not live one

objected to any
operation and got
me some of Lydia E.

it and commenced
to get better and am now well, am
stout and able to do my own housework.
I can recommend the Vegetable Com

relieve the congestion.

' Batters Who Make Their Hits Count.
"Gawy" Cravath of the champion Phillies holds the 1915 record for the
greatest number of runs driven In in one game. He hit home eight in the
contest with Cincinnati on August 8, tv ice sending three men over the plate
by doubling. The last major leaguer to turn this trick was Harry Davis, who
did it in 1890 against Brooklyn. Harry then was with the Giants. Fournier
of the White Sox set the American league record for the year when, on July
6, he batted in six tallies.
George Sisler of St Louis Browns Can
Play Any Position on Diamond—
Is Hard Hitter.
"How long do you think It will be
before baseball produces another
player like Ty Cobb?" someone asked
of a crowd of old-timars in the press
box during a recent fanning bee.
"Looks to me as if it had already
produced one," remarked George
Davis, scout and former manager of
the Giants. He was looking at Sisler,
the versatile young athlete of the
Browns. "There's about the best ball
player we've seen in years.
This brought on quite a discussion,
and after going all the way down the
line of new stars It was the unani
mous verdict that Sisler is by far the
greatest ballplayer discovered in recent
years. And this is not due entirely to
his versatility. Though he can play
any position on the diamond except
behind the bat be is a star in any
place they put him. v -

Free Pass Evil Is "Booed" by Every
Fan Who Really Loves Gam
Batter Always Anxious to
Boost Batting Average.
Whenever a batter receives a base
on balls, or Is hit by a pitched ball,
the manager of the team at bat may
have the alternative of permitting the
batter to take first base, as has been
customary under the present rules, or
he may put a base runner on first base
and permit the batter to continue at
bat. The base runner substituted shall
be permitted to re-enter the game at
any other time as a base runner, and
the batter shall not be forced out of
the game as is the custom under the
present rules when a man runs for
The rule above will accomplish
many things, make the game more
speedy, make for more control on the
part of the pitchers, make more and
better base running, make it necessary
to keep at least one lightninglike ryn
ner on the squad and do away with
Intentional passes.
Perhaps where it will make the big
gest hit with the players is that It
will make for bigger batting averages.
When a batter is hit by a pitched
ball or passed by being given four
balls, he Is not credited with a time at
bat, It is true, but, on the other hand,
it is a time he does not have a chance
to make a hit, and ever? batter wants
as many chances to boost his batting
averages as possible.
The free pass evil Is "booed" at by
every fan who really loves the game.
To not permit a brilliant hltsmith like
Cobb, to get a fair chance at making
a hit, when a hit means runs and per
haps the game, is something the fan
frowns upon.
He wants to see his hero stride up
to the plate, pick out one to his liking
and smash it out for a three-bagger
or a homer and send in runs ahead of

Jimmy Callahan, New Manager of Pi
rates Disagrees With Former
Professor Taft's idea of voiceless
coaching, as expressed by the former
president at the recent National
league banquet, seems unpopular. Jim
my Callahan, new manager of the
Pittsburgh Pirates, is one manager
who has announced his stand against
quiet coaching.

of a sensitive nature, but I believe the
fans generally in the United States
like it," said Callahan in reply to
Mr. Taft. "Half of the sport In the
game would be taken away by stop

sport and I don't believe the men who
make baseball rules will ever legis
