Don't Respect Enemy Too Much. The supposed necessity for pressing I is born of too much respect for the __ j cneni}'. Because they have got the best j of you tor the moment, and played the!

It is scarcely ever politic to count the enemy's chickens before they ari- hatchetl. Cases constantly occur of holes being lost because it Games of Golf Between Friends ^Ought not be Played for Nothing' Sufficient Spur Against a Stranger, the Late Sir \ Simpson Wrote-Stake Adds Zest to the Sport. Games of golf ought not to be played for uothing, more particularly where adversaries are in the habit ot meeting often. Glory may be a sufficient spur when trying conclusions with a stranger, but between friends there must be something more. It there is not, the worse player will not lake odds, and the better, from having, nothing to do, will fall back to his level. This trades-union, communistic plan ot offering no incentive to skill slowly undermines it. But with a stake the worse player will demand his odds the better give them grudgingly, and both strive to win. "What!" ^'xclalm those who consider there is some mysterious wickedness in exchanging money for anything but perishables, such as food, drink, clothing and shares In bubble companies-"\\'hat.' degrade golf to a gambling game I" BASEBALL RESULTS Gambling! what nonsense!

Juno 5.-Mayor allowed sixteen hits today but Phlladal-phia was In the gaino until the eighth PLAYERS NOT SATISFIED,. A pitclior would he a first bascnian or an outfielder. Outfielders would like to be pitchers, and sometimes changes are beneficial. Joe Wood is about through as a pitcher, but during the illne.se ot Jack Graney he filled in at left field as well as Graney would have done himself. Wood, al- ways a great hitting pitcher, iraprov-j doubles by llrcsslcr and Housch ed his batting when he was playing j drove in three runo and won 7 to 4. every day, hit oportunely and fielded well. it 1.3 a curious coincidence that Jack Graney, the man Wood supplanted temporarily, was originally a pitcher. Lee Fnhl, who managed the Columbus club a few yflars ago, got Granoy among a hunch of rookies. He converted him into an outfielder. Fohl says Graney was the wildest pitcher he ever saw. Harry Hooper, the Red Sox outfielder, started bin baseball career as a pitcher but when he landed In the big leagues he was quickly shifted. Dave Robertson wa.s a pitcher at North Carolina State college and was ranked as the best hurler in the Caro-Unas and Virginia, although at the same time i'lppa Rixey was pitching at Virginia rnlvorsity. Benny Kauff did some pitching when he was younger and two old-time Giant outfielders, Mike Donlln and Cy Seymour, both started as pitchers. Frank Baker was originally a pitcher, as was Rhody Wallace. Wallace was a regular for the Cleveland club in the late OO's; and It was only when his talents as an Intlelder became so conspicuous that he was taken from the mound. Every one knows how George Sis-ler started his career as a iiitcher and was Hlilftod to first base when his hit-ling and base running were found to bo of more value than his box work. Ty Cobb always v/anted to he a pitcher and several years ago would take his turn at the mound during batting practice. He stopped this when ho found It injuring his throwing arm. It is quite likely Babe Ruth will land at some other place on the dlamoud beside the pitching stuff on account Ot hla hitting power Score: Cincinnati .......Oiij oil 030-7 IG 2 Philaduiphla .....OJl 001 000-4 10 4 Bressler and Witigo; .Mayor, Watson and Burns.

Evans in Miller Huggins, manager of the Yankees, tells the following: "The funniest play 1 ever saw happened one day In a game between tlio Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals, When Roger Bresnahan was manager. Mike Mowrey was on first when Steve Kvans hit a ball to right center. Mike started on the hit and after turning second saw the coacher at third base waving him to go back, as lie thought the ball would be cauglit. Mike turned back and was running at full speed with his head down when Kvans came along toward second base, also with his head down. The two heads met and the two players went down and out. TliB ball was thrown in and linth were tagged. They were out then sure." and mothers of the district formed the audience. Examinations.

NEWOAYIONIN ARE IN � New Dayton, AUn., June 3.-Tho Red Cross tea given by Mrs. IJr. Mc-Calluni resulted In a nice little sum being turned over to that society. R. I'\ Howe has taken charge of the lumber yard, and promlBoa to be an able .successor to Percy Fisher, who, we understand, has not yet donned tlie khaki, or the navy blue, owing to some misunderstanding, or mistake. In his application tor tho navy, Alvin Nate and Allie Gorrlll are both now In uniform, and wo under-.stand tho only kick Alvin has is that his boots look more like boxes than anything else. Dr. D.
