Mentioning some ot ihe players famous for the finish.they put oa tbeir work, among Ihe number teiag such plavers as Dunlip, McFhee, 'Wallace.

Tbeir ease and grace ivere not brought to them by their effectiveness. Rather was their effec- tiveness brought to them by tbeir case and grace. ta Hue. I hold tbit tho. tat Unas that should be inculcated io tbe boys beiin to play baseball is that with- out styie they never can hope to attain the highest standards of proficiency. We all Snow that a good style Is es: sential to success in running, swim- ming, boiing, rowing, tennis, golf, bil- liards; in fact, in every thought and action of those who ,wouia attain the highest nroftdeniy in their various A clear, lucid style of thinking, of wrrUing, or argument is indispensable lo the business and professional man Jnit a-, an easy, graceful stvfe of physi- cal action is essential to the athlete. sav. fpt us establish, re- cognize, encourage and develop z Stan- dard of style in baseball, takfas the ctloas add motions of tho best play- era and saving the rule-proving ex- ceptions for our models. Hollocntr a. Modern TVhen 1 see a yoang pjayer with style I know he -will -win out in the end. The first lime f ever laid eyes oa Chsrlej- Hollocber, ot the Chicago Cubs, 1 put him doa-fl as a winner. From the beginning Hollocher bad fijlc. So haa Scott, the Boston short- Hollocher's great rival; so bas .Maranyille, ot lhe Boston Braves; so baa Herzos, of the Boston Braves; so liava Eddie Collins and Bock Weaver, ot the White Sol and so hzd Comiskey,> and Welch, ot the St Louis Browns, and so had Williamson, Kelly. Pfetfer and Sunday, of the old Chicago The left hanier rarely secures a ftlclloaless. easy delivery, it is ntarly always jerky and unnatural. Breiten- stein came closer to possessing a na- tural, easy delivery than any of the Ifjft-handers. His control was tbe very best and. as a result bis pitching life was mticn longer than that ol 'he averags left-hander. BreiMnstein was pitching good baseball for almost as long as Cy years, in fact Xo other left-hander has any- thing like such E. record. He was heavily too, during youth with the old St. Louis Browns, and yet because of Sis beautiful, easy- style" he lasted a long -while. Tyler. like Breltenstelu, will last a Ions while, ami thoQgh.he has pitched seasons he has as much speed and strength today as ver. Nlcholi a Poem of Motion Tyler, too, reminds ma of Charley Nichols, the famous old Boston pitch- er who endured EO long. Nichol? was j a poem In rootian as he pitched the ball, a perfect overhand delivery, with i a full "follow-through" they say in golf. Cy. Young, -who lasted longer in tie big "leagues than any other pitcher, hid style. His. Nichols, was beautiful over-hand delivery. Eube and Bags Raymond Camouflage Stockings. Style, too, is eventolns comes to pilchtns. The greatest pit- cherj all had style. Badbonrne, lhe old king pitcher, bad style to burn. In ac- tion was the poetry of strength, sad grace. George Tyler, of the Cnbs of time, hi.a style. He is as pretty a pit- as a man ever laid eyes on and frtco and ease are mixed up by 111 irtlh wonderful strength and speed, Tyler reminds me very much ol Theodora Brelfeuslefn, once the king left-handed pitcher of the major gues. Palace Vulcanizing Works One Block West ot RETREADING, BLOWOUTS, RIM CUTS. Retreading Price List: W.OO both-had style. They were a pair of beauty blights when at their best. There and are others, too, in lhe big leagues thit have style wten it comes to pitching. All the best ditchers, too, have strle. Kay Scialk, of tie Chicago White Soi. and Bill Killiter. of the Chicago Cubs, toth have style. They work so gracefully that their task la the spectator appears wonder- fully easy. Meyers, Rsriden. Archer, Brescahan. Snyder, Thomas, Kling. Sweeney, Spencer and Moran are oth- er great major league receivers ot the past and present who had style. Buck Ewing. Tom Deasley, Flint, Mike Kelly, Vincent Nova, Jim White and Doc. Bochong. ot tbe old and famous catching brigade, all had tyle. They made light work of the jiTiest and speediest pitching. As la fielding, so in batting, a man musV hare slyle if he hopes to win out and reach the big'aast honor in the hatting list. TV Cobb and Tris Speaker, in the American League, and Berjir Kault and Hal Chase, iu the National, are all stylish batsmen. They stand right and trwing right and are at ease when in their position with Uie bat, Delahanty and Anson. tne mosi tan-flic batsmen of the olden time, both had style. IJelahanly at tho plate with tat in hand was tie picture of graat akill end atreogth. AH pitchers looked alike to him.- Delahanly excelled all batsmen In being able to hit to all ilelds. Anson, too, like Dela'oanly, was picture at the bat. He not only had style, tut he conld whale the bill in al! directions. Of course, no man can hit where he wishes to at any one time, but It should lie within his power to hit car- taiu advantageous balls to certain parts ol the field when opportunity offers. Only men with elylo and ac- tion can do that.
