To Decide Final Place on Toss.
In the event of a seventh game be
ing necessary, the city for holding it
will be determined by the toss of a
coin. In case a game is postponed on
acount of rain or if for some other
cause a legal game is not played the
teams will remain in the city where
the postponement occurred until a le
gal game is played. This does not, of
jourse. apply to tie games.
Players Get Share of Four Games.
According to the rules governing the
world's series, the National commis
sion will receive 10 percent of the gate
receipts of each and every game. The

30 percent of the first Jour games, the
amount to be divided on a basis of 60
percent to the winners and 40 percent
to the losers. The remaining 40 per-
1 cent of the 90 percent goes to the club
owners. Ninety percent of the gate
receipts of each and every game after

T is advisable for the younger read-
ers to skip over this article be-
cause it teaches no lesson. 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

Becruits snappy and seasoned in the

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

"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

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
