Ed Geers, the Greatest of All

Another harness racing season is
about to pass by, and once more the
honors are being showered on Ed
Geers. the grand old man of the sulky.
The running turf has had its Garri
sons, its daredevil Fitzpatricks. its
Isaac Murphys and its Tod Sloanes
scattered through all the years, but
not one remained In harness as long
The grand old man of the sulky for
thirty years has been a daring and
successful driver ou the grand circuit
and is still, if not actually in harness,
manipulating the reins with greater
skill than any of his younger rivals.
Geers' style of driving is peculiarly
his own. No other man has ever been
seen who exercised such control over
his horses with so little apparent ef
fort. He sits immovable in the sulky.
no matter what the crisis, never rais
ing his hands, spreading his arms,
bracing himself by lying back in his
seat or in any way showing the em
ployment of any particular physical
force. Only on rare occasions does he
touch his horse with the whip, and
then with mere taps, even in an eye
Russia to Bar American Horses.
Russia is considering the question of
barring American bred horses. The
question involves the breeding as well
as the racing end of the game. Ever
since the Russians took up light har
ness racing there have been two fac
tions, one demanding that brooding
and racing be restricted to only horses
carrying Russian blood, while the oth
er faction, included in which are some
of the largest breeders, feel that the
infusion of American blood will tend
to improve the speed and stamina of
the native Orloff trotter.
Pitchers the Things, Says Cooney.
Phil Cooney declares that nothing
but pitchers can win pennants in mi
nor leagues. "Up to the big timber
two or three extraordinary hitters can
sometimes pull a team through, just
as Cobb and Crawford have done for
Detroit, but that is the big exception
to the rule even up there. In the mi
nor leagues the rule is pretty nearly
inevitable that the team with the
strongest pitching staff will win out.
Build your team around your pitchers
and if you have your share of baseball
luck you'll win."
Hutchinson Likes Our Golf Courses.
A visit of Horace Hutchinson. the
veteran English golfer, to Boston,
where ho has been going the rounds
of the links, has given much pleasure
to the followers of the game in the
Bay State, more particularly as he has
been saying nice things about most
of the golf courses he has visited.
Than Hutchinson it would be difficult
to find one more qualified to speak of
golf and golfers or to give an unbiased
opinion or criticism of a golf links.

"That I did not break down while eo
