INDIAN NATURAL HITTER Manager McGraw, erf the Gianti toys of Chief Myers: "Myers is wost natural hitter 1 over saw, even a iriore natural1 hitter than Wagner or Lajoie. In spite of the fict that the chief cannot beat out alow, hit baHs, I look -for him to bat around .400 'tHls year. Myers seems to hit tip ball almost et will arid drives out safeties with the same ease as a pitcher; drives out fungov hits in bat- ting practice. The National twirlers have all grown afraid of the chief, and whenever he comes up in a pinch he is walked. The chief dis- likes such tactics, as he dearly loves to get a swipe at the ball."

Jolmsmg By WALT MASON Since Johnsing reached his high estate, he Kas it in his head, that is truly great, of living men or dead. Yet his day, made things seem rather hot; aud Cyrus put up lots of so we have been taught. Leonidas stood up in front of his fanicd scrapping band; and Caesar did a little stunt that seemed to jar the land. Ulysses coald a rough house raise, although he wore-a and, coming down to later Napoleon was no slouch.. That Johnsing is the planet Mars, we'll ail admit, full soon; but there are other stars; likewise a. 'sun and moon.
