Did Chance Start School of Real Team Managers? Tinker and Evers Answer With the great Chicago National Icuguo machine finally broken up t>; tin* net of President Murphy l”. ,1c posing the mnnuKer who won him four pcnnuut.H and two world's « uain ploushlps, an opportunity now offers to nee whitl Manager Chance durian his decade at the helm hn» accom plished In the way of developing luihlmll generals. write* James (*. Isauiingcr in the Philadelphia In quirer. Evers has already signed with President Murphy to take the place of Chance ns manaßer of the Cuba. Tinker has the proffer of the man agership of Cimlunatl if a trade can lie arralifted that will give the Culm a shortstop, and It Is understood that a strong effort Ih in progress to get Jimmy Slier kard to Urookljn. With these tnree men holding big j hague berths, a fine chance would be i affoMcd to see whether the Cub | leader has turned out a new school of managers. All three of the men are conceded lv most intelligent ball players. In point of acumen, quick diamond wit and Intuition. Tinker and Evers were rated as the greatest pair around second base in the game until Hurry and Collina came along to dispute the honor with them. It was the quick wit of Kvers that called attention to the memorable blunder of Merklo In not touching second In the famous tied game with New York, and during nil the period of surceases to the rrcdlt of the Cubs was always an Invaluable lieutenant to n superb leader. Tinker Is also rated aa a great tac. tlcinn. Ed Reulbach, the Cub pitcher remarked recently that In his Judg ment Tinker had always been the menial giant of the club, and he pre dicted for him a Successful career In Itcdland. If Hhecknrd does not connect with llrooklyn In tho post which Dahlcn has fllrld with such poor success for a number of years, the Superbas will get another master of lnalde play. Hut It Is not always the man who ex ecutes the plays who can teach others how to pull them over. There was never a headier catcher than Hilly Sullivan, of the White Sox. but he fizzled sadly as a manager, and tho samp goes for Rhody Wallace, of St. Lout*, who could do everything him self, hut who never was able to make his men come to the fore with the right action at the right time. It is a curious fact that Connie Mark, conrcdcdly one of the master minds of the game, has not been suc cessful lu graduating winning man agers. A number of the famous men on whom he has depended for the winning of pennants have donned the togs but excepting Ttfpsy Hartsel not one has succeeded In making any better than a mediocre showing. I Jive Cross, on whom Mack de pended for a lot of the Inside w*ork In the seasons from 1901 to 190.", Inclusive, left he lean manager at the end of the senson of 1905 to cap tain the Washington club In the American league. He had then much more of a reputation thAn his man ager. .lake Stahl, now tho lender of the world's champions, nnd It was thought more than a ear.ee tat before the seuson ended Lave might ho di recting the club. Hut instead Lave after u short stay went to New Orleans ns captain. He was not long a sojourner In the southern metroitolis nnd worked his way north as manager of the Shnmo klu club in the outlaw Atlantic lon gue. Then he went to Charlotte In the Carolina association. Hut lu no place was Ills work up to the splen-_ did hopes that had been held for him.

A lot of 'Him wuuteU Montu during the 1011- 1 of 1907 when the brllliuiit play ling of Si Nir holla tipped off the wise [tines that tho veteran was uenriug the end of Ills string with the INiiiu luclphin American leaguers. Chicago White Sox offered $5,000 In iiiid-Bcuson for Monte, hut Man ager Mack refused the cush which was Ilk*' making ho much of u dear gift to cross. The iciison for this action was that George Tebrau had made a prop osition to Monto to manage Kaunas City in the American nssodatlon. nnd as n reward for the long and valu able service Cross had given the club It wuh the desire of .Manager Mack that he should lie free to sign with out putting lilh now employers to the j expense of purchasing his release. This meant a beter contract for the tal short stopper. Cross went to Kaunas City in the start of 190 S with unusual hopes for his success. A great public banquet in his honor testified the regard of the friends who had longed pulled for him. Hut Moufe fared no better with the difficult Tcbcau than did others who have striven to work for him. nnd after a full season and part of the next one. during all of which time he was constantly comiiellod to fight out questions pf interference. Monte gave It up. and came back to Philadelphia. For two seasons ho managed Scran ton, in the New Yoik State league, but was not able to put the club In tho first division. Last year he was for part of the season a scout for the St. Ixhilh Hrowns. Jimmy Collins, after he left the Mack fold, took a place as manager of the Providence Kastern league club, but the Jinx was on him. nnd he had no results to show at the end of a season or two of effort. After he damaged his leg by slid ing luto the plate during a practice game at New Orleans, Socks Seybold Idled for a season and the next year took the management of the Toledo club In the American association, be ing granted a free release by Manag er Mack, so that he could havo the aame chance that had been grnntcd to Monte Cross. Seybold did no bet- < ter than the other Mack managers and la now scouting for the Cleveland Americana. Last year Manager Mark sent out two men to be managers. One was his greatest lieutenant, the man who was rated at one of the most notable field captains who ever played the game, Harry »Hvli. In 191!. three cluos were after Davis. Ills work In the world's series against New York, when he took the place of Mclnnls. after the latter's wrist was broken, brought him still further fame. When it wns announc ed that he had aigned to manage Cleveland, there was no surprise, for It was known that Charles Somers, the manager of the Naps, had been after Davis for a long time. Not an expert In the country but pirked Davis to work a great Im provement In Cleveland but after be ing down in the race for the greater part of the season, Davis suddenly threw up his Job In September nnd returned to Philadelphia. Undoubtedly circumstances had niitiguted against the success of Da vis. At the time when he reached hla agreement to assume charge of the Cleveland club in 1912, I)avia was still a member of the Athletics. This wns in the early part of 1911. Mc- Guire was then managing Cleveland, . and Somers recognized that his pay wns not likely to bo extended. Things went so badly for McGuire that he quit in mid-season, and THURBDAY charge of the team wuh given to George Stovall. Stovall had the good lortune to bring the team along ut a ’ fust clip, tuklng it from u tail-end position to third in a short time. While performing this feat, Stovall made a great hit with tho fans and players alike, and there waa a senti ment manifested thut he deserved an other year as manager. This feeliiig undoubtedly operated against Manager Davis when he took Siovull's job ut the beginning of 1912, and the prejudice was not us bunged when Stovall was truded to St. Ijhils for Lefty George, a pitcher of some promise, who failed to make good. There wuh a luck of harmony uu der Davis, and It U openly said thut the team never pulled for him us It would have for Stovall. The result was u aeries of disagreements and the disappearance of Davis from the poat. Hartsel went to Toledo without any particular excitement, though he left u lot of well-wiahers In Phila delphia. From the outset he had good results from the team, which fiaibhed in the first division for the first time 111 many years. McGruw and Clarke, great mana gers of today have yet to send a big manager winner on hls way. and there is not a leader of the present who can ahow a record like that or Ned Hanlon. The director of the Raltlmore and Hrooklyn champions of many years gave to baseball two winners of big league pennants—McGruw. with hls four in the National league and one world's championship, 1905, nnd Jen nings. with Ills three nt Detroit In the American league. Joe Kelly, manager of the cham pion Toronto team lu the Interna tional league, the club that broke John Gnnxel's three-year monopoly of tile flag at Rochester, la another graduate of the Hanlon school of baseball. It remains to be determined wheth er Chance has started a school of managers thut will fare any hotter than have those of hls uotable con temporaries. POULTRY NOTES There has been much complaint re cently of the large percentage of spoiled eggs to the rase. Some of this trouble, it Is declared, la due to the storage of eggs near onions. GST* or other things with pronounced odors. Chickens should have good, aweet feed to make good eggs, the same as a row should have sweet grains to make good street milk. Ifow quick a dairyman moves hls rows when he finds garlic In hls pasture. When disposing of some of the old stock, pick out the poor layers. They are 'Just ns good" for roasting pur poses, and you ran not afford to part with the money makers. If the early pullets have been well cared for they ought to be making contributions to the egg basket. Not too late to capoulzc those cock erels. If you don't want to do that sell them quick. Do not neglect to provide clean wa ter for the poultry. Dirty water Is dirty nt any season of the year. Incubators do not lessen the labor but they increase the profits. YOU HAVE A SIXTH SENSE From the Chicago Tribune. It Is almost a 1.000 to 1 bet that you don't know you have a sixth reuse. Hut you have, nevertheless. The reason you never knew* it Is be cause it has only recently been dis covered. It is known as the sensu or equilibrium. The sixth sense is located In the semicircular canals of the inner car, nnd whenever a person is lu danger of falling, or losing his equilibrium, a warning messnge is communicated to the brain. For years physilogists have been puzzled to know* the func tion of these canals because It wns proved definitely that they had noth ing to do with the sense of hearing, or tho proper working of the auri cular organ. Thus they come to be considered as superfluous. They con sist of throe semicircular tubes, al most at right angles to ono another and full of a clear liquid. Scientists have discovered that these canals enable a person to tell what position ho Is in, no matter whether ho Is blind or paralyzed. By sonic peculiar process not well un derstood they warn us when wo are about to fall and give ub the con sciousness of being in any position assumed. Stoeplcjacks nnd other workcis on high buildings who finally loee their nerve and are afraid to go very far above the ground have lost port of their sense of equilibrium. Exami nations by physicians In such In stances have shown that their semi circular glands were diseased. It wns largely by this means that the exist ence of a sixth sense wns discovered.
