Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, Jimmy Sheckard, Artie Hoffman, Harry Stein feldt and Frank Chance were idols on the West side In the pennant winning days, but it is doubtful if they com manded more admiration than Cy Wil liams, Frank Schulte, Helnie Zimmer man, Jimmy Archer and Vic Saier are getting at present on the North side from the Cub fans, writes Oscar Rei chow in Chicago Daily News. These men have won the respect of the fol lowers through their earnest efforts and brilliant playing and richly de serve what they are getting in the way of applause and encouragement. Fans were somewhat worried before the opening of the season whether Zimmerman, Williams, Saier, Schulte and Archer would play up to their standard for Manager Tinker. They have learned since that these star play BIG IMPROVEMENT OF YANKS Mighty Bat of John Franklin Baker Great Factor in Winning Games for New York Team. John Franklin Baker, the home-run artist, did not live up to his reputa tion as a slugger in the early games in which the Yankees participated. % $ Tv. mm i § * ■/ ■ v:> \ » I m s . à J.

The Yankees have shown a big improvement with Baker in t$e ranks and his mighty bat is bouivl to be a great factor in winning games for them. PLAY AFTER THREE ARE OUT Batter Hit Home Run, With Bases Full, After Side Had Been Re tired—Umpire Asleep. They must play a lively wideawake sort of game in the Ohio State. In a recent Frankfort-Maysville game, after three men were out a batter hit a homer with the bases full. After all four men had crossed the plate some body aroused enough from his nap to acquaint the sleepy umpire and play ers that it was against the rules of the game to require four outs, so the umpire said the runs didn't count PITCHER WORKS IN "MOVIES tf Rather Than Join Vancouver Team He Secures Engagement With a Mov ing Picture Concern.

He Just breezed up to Santa Barbara and joined a moving picture company at a salary which he claims is fatter than any he ever received as a diamond performer. Seven Hits in One Day. Seven good base hits in one day is some record. Russell Blackburne of Toronto made it in a recent double header with Montreal.

It has been years since the Cub fans have looked at such playing as Williams, Schulte, Saier and Zimmerman have been supplying to date. From close observation one is almost compelled to say that the task of keep ing the Cubs in the race will fall upon Zimmerman 4 Williams, Schulte and Saier. Their batting is the big point. If they can keep It up and the twirlers hold up their end the Cubs are certain to be on top or near at every stage of the skirmish. What they have accom plished to date is sufficient proof of that, and it is doubtful if four men can be found in the National league to equal the work they are doing.

Nothing They Resent So Much as Newspaper Criticism of Boys Play ing for Them—Will Not Tolerate Interference. McGraw, manager of the New York National league baseball club, Is very strict with his players, but they all swear by him, for they know that he is on the level" with them. The same thing is true of McGraw's old side partner, Hughie Jennings. They may call" their players unmercifully, in the heat of a diamond battle for some bad mistake, but such castigations are like a father's reproofs to his sons, and bear no ill will. Let someone else offer criticism, and these two managers will fight back just like a parent would were his sons attacked. There is nothing they resent so deep ly ns newspaper criticism of their play ers. They assume that they can con duct their own baseball households without outside interference, and os they are the parties responsible for the showing of the teams, they propose to do it. Both are very hotheaded, and for this reason their seats on the bench are isolated and shiny—the former condi tion due to discretion on the part of the players, and the latter to nervous hitching about, incited by the manag erial view of various plays.

He says that just so long as he continues ta go at top speed it really does not matter how much the fans "ride" him because his hair is gray, but that it hurts when he is going bad.

The Enterprise was not potent as a molder of public opin ion. Its circulation was not notable, and outside of the state few people knew of Its existence. But It had once one member of the staff who made It famous In his day and who himself later became famous. . f. It was the Enterprise on which Mark Twain first used that name which af terward became a household word. He had contributed articles from min ing camps under the pseudonym of Josh," but when he joined the staff ,lie adopted as sobriquet "Mark Twain," a reminiscence of his pilot days. As new "strikes" were made the newspaper office was moved first from Genoa to Carson and Inter to Virginia City. One can visualize Mark In the En terprise office of the '60s, his long legs twisted about the tilted chair, the old hat on his great brush of hair, writ ing some such matter as "Mr. Bloke's Item," swapping stories with Dan de Quille, or listening to the quaint ver nacular of visiting miners or prospec tors. It was there he began the first of those experiences which were to en rich the literature of the country and. to teach a tired world how to laugh. The Enterprise is gone, but so are the Oil City Derrick, the Laramie Boom erang, and the Danbury News, at least no one now hears of them since the hümorists who made the reputation? of those Journals have passed away. How the increase in the cost of liv fng has progressed in the last thirty or forty years was discussed by Gov. J. B. Kendrick of Wyoming, an old stockman, who has watched the march of events.

In March, 1879, I went down to Texas to look over two thousand head of steers in Matagorda county, south- | ern Texas," Governor Kendrick said, I according to the Washington Post. While I was down looking over the young cattle I was naked by the man ager of the ranch if I cared to buy some older steers.

M Gaslight in Oil Lamp. A war time substitute for the kero sene oil light has been provided in Germany in the form of a carbide candle which supplies the old lamp with acetylene gas, the Columbia State notes. The candle is a cylinder having a suitable gas burner at the top and a removable cover at the bottom, and holding two or three ounces of cal cium carbide. It is set into the lamp after the oil burner has been removed. In operation the font of the lamp is about half filled with water and the carbide filled candle Is placed in it, when the moisture reaching the car bide causes the generation of acety lene for a considerable time. The rate of emission of gas is regulated by vary ing the amount of water. A chalky residue is left on the exhaustion of I the carbide, but this is easily removed when dry or with suitable care, while still wet and in this state giving off a small amount of inflammable gas. The average cost of the carbide used is stated to be about a quarter of a cen' an hour. ^ , . . steamfltter about the cost of putting in a baptistry.
