When Pete Browning quit tho game one of the greatest batsmen that ever faced a pitcher passed from public view. He hit them high or low and in any direction. He was a natural hitter, and that! what makes a batsman. It's the fellow who drives the ball into the right field or the left, who pushes tt out just over the intlelders and not far enough for the outfielders, that gets the hits. The man who continually drives the ball In one direction Is handicapped, for his weakness Is soon discovered and the players into whose territory he will probably hit the ball will be on the alert more than ever. Browning stood a little behind tne plate and swung to meet the ball fairly. You have seen batsmen swing at the ball and turn clear around when they missed it. Peoule would say, "(lee, if he had hit that ball it would have gone to the fence." The chances are the ball would have popped up Into the air, for such terrific swings are bound to throw a batsman off his stride and lessen the chance? to land squarely on the ball. Probably you have noticed other batsmen grasp the hat pretty well up the handle and seemingly just tap the hall. Yet it sped far into the outfield almost on a line for one, two or three basses, and you were surprised, because you thouht he didn't hit the ball hard at all. And he didn't, hut he hit it square on the uose. That is what counts. You can't teach a man to he a good batsman If he isn't a natural hitter, flood base hull players are born not made. There are thou sands of average players, hut the stars are In the big leagues. Ex perience polishes tho natural abili ty of the horn player. Practice may Improve his gulft, but if playing does not come to him naturally, he will never acquire anything like the perfection sought after by all men who follow the game as a business. Any man, fan or player, can tell you offhand what a player needs to become a good batsman, but If the faculty for hitting tho ball, as McGraw says, "where the players ain't," isn't horn in him he will never become a top notcher. Most of the funny saying that pass Into current base ball his tory come from tho minor leagues and country town cluhs. When Arllo Latham passed out of big league company the only original and genuine witty man of the dia mond In the cities passed away.

C. club and we have gone on trips into the interior where the real village cut-up flourishes like a bay tree of emerald hue, I have discov ered the true source of the stream of witty sayings that flows from town to town across the nation. The rnlloquiaslsims of the coun try town are carried to the cities by the minor leaguers who are drafted in the spring, and the quaint charm and homely turns of the sayings are eagerly seized up on by the fellows who are used to hard pavements and big buildings and who draw their Inspirations from funny papers that circulate mostly in barber shops. Do you know what is the great est enemy of the promising young base hall player? It is being a good fellow. If they had a grave yard and painted over tho arch way leading to it the words "Here Lie Blasted Hopes, Wrecked Ambi tions, Early Promises Unfulfilled." what a melancholy array of head stones would greet the eye. How many promising youngsters have you known who have fought their way from the ranks of the minors for a trial with the big fellows, and after a brief sojourn they have fallen back to the lower level and finally disappeared from public view altogether? What did it? In a majority of cases their downfall could he trac ed to the sole fact that they were "good fellows." They traveled a pace that undermines tho batting eye, or unsteadies the nerves —that made them unreliable at critical moments. How many young fel lows have I tried to save In my career on the diamond! I found them all good listeners, but few would heed hard-headed advice. They liked the life—and so they traveled the road that Is flower lined and rose-tinted at the begin ning, hut thorny and uninviting at the end. Base hall is more of a business now than it was in the days when I entered It. Then it was more of a lark and we liked to travel around "to enjoy the scenery."

This remark was repeated to Bklward, who replied; "That young fool, William, has committed the great mistake of meddling with my business. He will have to be taught belter man ners."
