Winning or losing is to him rather an amusing detail than a serious consideration. He does all he can to win, .Decause mat is part of the game; but the fact that some one else has a better eye, or has ihad more practice, or is more favored by fortune, does not annoy him. He jplays the game for his health and pleasure, and therefore, he does not care whether any one is watehing his prowess nor does he need a band of "root ers" to urge him to exert himself or to worry his opponents. To the true sportsman such a spectacle as , that of a team crying because they have lost, or of a man told off to "worry the pitcher," or of a man being "induced" or tribed to amuse himself;' of a player depending upon artificial stimulus from spectators, or of any serious quarrel or anxiety over a pastime, is simply -unintelligible. That such anomalies exist in sport is due, primarily, to the professional.

These cells do not work each for itself and by itself; they are associated together in groups of hundreds or thousands, as tfihe case may be- those groups doing the combined work of the brain.

' All 5outh and West 5coff at the Idea of Hard Times New York City. -Just at this time while pessimists who tremble at the mere mention of Wall Street are looking for financial stringency, New York hotels' are reaping a harvest from an army of men whose predic tions reflect the financial conditions better than can, any rise or. depres sion of securities. This legion repre sents the merchants of the entire con tinent. ' It Is a conservative estimate to say that $5,500,000 has been spent in New York City by , this buying and selling commercial army, in small ad vance orders, in living expenses and in amusement, for the daily expedi tures of a majority of the visitors have been very heavy. "You may use Wall Street here as a bugaboo with which to frighten Fifth avenue and to keep Newport meek at times," said Ernest Jackson, at the Cadillac, "but the American people don't tremble at the mention of the name any vmore. The talk of an approaching panic, while it seems to make New York feel glum, is scoffed at by those who appreciate the real resources of the nation and who feel that a . panic cannot come even if the money kings try to create one." Mr. Jackson has for years been among the chief Southern traveling men of Arnold, Constable Co., touch ing on his travels the principal cities and towns v of fourteen Southern States. Scoffs at Talk of Panic. "If there is a panic coming, as those who see trouble where no trou ble exists predict," said he, "it will be due solely t6 that fear which causes a child to look into the dark hall for a bear. The men of Wall Street do not any more hold the money power in their hands. What if they do get together and say there is a 'stringency? That doesn't alter the fact that .Texas will grow 4,0 00, 000 bales of cotton, worth at present prices $180,000,000, and that the other cotton-growing States will add 3,000,000 additional bales, worth $450,000,000. "Think what that crop alone means to the country. A $600,000, 000 cotton crop means prosperity for the South. That is an enormous sum of money within $150,000,000 of the debt of New York City."

" "I've had commercial men,- and buyers here in swarms for two and. a half months," said the manager of the Cadillac, "and a busy spending bunch they are.

"The State in which I live is too busy mak ing money to pay any attention to, or to have any sympathy with, talk of panic or hard times. "Our merchants are getting rich, manufactories are .springing up, are adding enormously to the wealth of the farmer and the spinner and our banks and trust companies are carry ingmillions of dollars on deposit. - "Cotton at six cents is profitable;, at fourteen it Is a boon Incalculable, for it means nearly $700,000,000 an nually, to. the South.

Billet, of the William II. Horstman Company: "Texas alone is an empire vast in dimensions' and so vastly wealthy that her people would brand themselves ridiculous to think of hard times.' The farmers and the cattlemen are rolling in wealth; the oil industry has added millions and the merchants are doing tremendous volumes of trade." T. F. Connole, of Baltimore, says: "With Iowa boasting a $350,000,000 corn crop and Kansas almost reach ing her, while the South is getting fancy prices on 13,000,000 bales of cotton, there is money in plenty.
