Al- bertus Perfecto Demaree threatens to lead all "the National league pitchers this season, yet he is the most per sistent cigar smoker of the Giants. The young idea is taught to believe that no successful athlete uses tobacco, which fact-is largely true. Probably "Al" would have been a huskier pitch er if he had not hit the treed so con sistently, for he is frail of build. The call him "Steamer Al" because of his smoking habits. He is seldom without his cigar except during a game. The laws of organized baseball do not permit performers to smoke in business hours. The only other time "Al" does not resemble one of those Erie locomotives, which btirns soft coal, is when he is asleep. He even lights up one of his cigars before breakfast, and they are the longest, blackest cigars in the world. I know because I have tried to smoke one and failed, even after a meal. It is a se cret where he gets them, , but it is one of those secrets that few persons have any curiosity of unraveling. "Al" broke In from the bushes with the Giants late last fall. He hadn't been along more than afew weeks this spring, however, when all the sand burrs were gone from him, sTnd you could never tell him from a regular'big leaguer. He has been taking his turn in the box with the regulars all sea-, son and taking it much better than some of thp veterans. "Al" is talented. He is not onlv a good pitcher, but he is also an artist of no mean ability as biographers say. "When he isn't pitching baseball, he is in there cartooning somebody, and he gets his drawings into the papers right along. If anything, he prefers being an artist to pitching baseball, because this form of exercise does not inter fere with his pleasure, which is smok ing the black! cigars already referred to. Perhaps that is where he got the smoking habit while learning his crayon art. Anyway he certainly has got it. He also dresses after the man ner of an artist in some ways. For in stance, he purchased a. green hat, after the straws went out of the ring recent ly, which could haa-e been used for a starboard light on the any ocean liner. It was one of those hats that can only Mavericks Have , a " Silver City Team Becruits snappy and seasoned in the class AA circuits which are now fast disbanding, have strengthened the El Paso and Silver City teams to such an extent, recently that taking each in dividual player of both teams and comparing them, the clubs are matched evenly with the exception of the pitch ing 'staff -where the Mavericks reign supreme. The Indians, however, have acquired an outfielder, a pitcher and two in fielders since their last appearance at "Washington park, and as there is an old score to settle between the oppos ing clubs, it seems that two interesting hard fought battles are certain to be the outcome. Eddie Ward, manager of the Indians, made a proposition to the El Paso officials for the loan of Hugh Harbin, former Galveston twirler and drafted by the Cincinnati Reds this season, so that he could place him on the rubber Sunday afternoon to work against Cliff Hill, the speedy little southpaw, also an El Paso product. This request was refused by the man agement. El Paso has two catchers, two pitch ers and one outfielder that have not SCOOP reporter About as Speedy a Get-A way as 'fill i y9f a IisfHo "feBl- tK "Jwav (By Sloane Gordon) Who Will Win the World's Championship ? f-c HE HERALD has a hunch but wishes to" print the opinions of the 'fans. 1 There is a reason for each opinion.

He is not so much of an artist, however, that he wears "Windsor ties. "Al" came to the Giants late last fall from Mobile, where he had been working for "Mike" Finn, a close friend of McGraw's in the manors. '"Jlike" had recommended to the Giants' jnan ager that "he would flrid Demaree to be mostly pitcher, and, after scratching the surface, that is what John has discovered. Ajid he was welcome with the Giants this year, too, with Charley IL Tesreau returning to his wild hab its. "Al" joined the .Giants too late to have anything to do with the world's Series last year on account of the rules of organized baseball, and it is doubt ful whether McGraw would have ven tured using him even to finish a game if he could. But Demaree at once showed he had the right stuff in him by volunteering to stick with the club Halford anef' uffey Start Training :- - mm Boxers Busy For BOXING affairs in El Paso and Jua . rez, have livened up considerably with the announcement that Max Halford and Eddie Duffej- have started Good Pitchers Is Strengthened been seen at the park before this sea son, with the exception of .Cliff Hill.

After the tournament at Albuquer que, members of the three southwest ern teams will disband and Jeave for their homes, where they 'will re main until time for the spring train ing in their respective circuits next season. The games Saturday and Sun day with Silver City, will be the last professional ball, to be seen in El Paso this season, and the fans will turn their attention to the three favorite pastimes, racing, boxing and bowling. Enroute to Albuquerque the teams will not stop at Deming. to join the Chino Copper company team. Instead, the private pullman transporting the members of the rival teams to the fair tournament, will continue on to Albu querque, intending to arrive there Monday morning, because the Initial same of the tournament is scheduled for October 6, that afternoon. throughout the series and pitch for batting' practice. The other players voted him a purse for this service from their share of the gate. "Al" depends largely on two things for his pitching success, his bead and hts control. He does not carry much speed, and his curve is not a wide one, bat he puts the ball where he wants it He is one of those pitchers who keeps the batters wondering; after fan ning ciut, why they can't hit him be cause he "hasn't got nothing." He is no squab when it comes to age, being about 27 or 28. His two prize possessions now are his green hat and Honus Wagner's "goat," the Dutchman never having been able to hit him consistently. "Al" is married and does not go in much for diamonds. Copyright, 1913, by the Wheeler Syndicate, Inc. Tomorrow Robert Shawkey, the sensational yonng pitcher of the Athletics.
