Cobb doesn't play to empty stands at b.ome or abroail. But let the Detroit team lose ,his services tor a few weeks and the club treasurer soon notices tlie difference in receipts. The addition of Speaker to tlie Cleveland club meant thousands of dollars to Jim Dunn. With the superb Texan in the field tlie stands at ('ie'veland. which had been empty the year before his purchase, groaned under the load, of tans who came out to see "Spoke." Washington has been a second division team for several years, but watch the turnstiles click when the announcement has gone out that Walter .lohnson is to pitcli. Even 21m Is an Attraction. It is. a safe prediction tli'at Grover .Vlexander's purchase will add many thousand dollars to the Chicago receipts this season. Heinle Zimmerman has been one ot the big drawing cards in baseball for years. His eccentricities have liiiil as much to do with it as his playing, although Heinle has alv.ays been a star. Christy .Mathewson was one of the greatest drawing cards the game has ever known. Fven when he .nult active participation in the game his drawing power did not fade, and as manager ot the Cinclnnatia he^brings many dollars to tho gate. Strange to say, the old Atlilotics, one of tlin greatest ot baseball machines, was not a good money getter. That is one reason why ]\lack broke np Ills team. Since then Collins at i;hicago' and Baker at New York have both been big atttractions. -in- PACKEY'S LAST PUBLIC FIGHT AMERICAN ASSOCIATION Louisville r., 7, 1; St Paul 0, 4, 2.

Two years ago McParland boxed Mike Gibbons In rofinds in New York at 14."i pounds, it 'was a dazzling and spectacular exhiliitlon ot ring science. .\o decisions were permitted nniler tho laws of New York, but seven New York newspapers out ot 10 awarded the verdict to .McFarland. McFarland received $i:i,."iOo for his evening's wrok. Packey MclMuland Is 29 years old. Ho was born and brought up In (Tii-cago, where boxers flourish on every corniir. He began his professional boxing career when only 15 years old. Tlirougb his fights, exhibitions and theatrical engagements ho made a riuarter of a million dollars. Four I years ago he marrieil the only daugh-' lor of a wealiliy Jollet (ill.') business niun and settled down to live there in comfort. .AIcGraw lias been a part of baseball. He started playing professionally with Olean in the New York State league back iu 1800. He was a stripling then, but the same dominant spirit that has won for liim the most CTviable managerial berth in llie major leagues was uppermost. McGraw's history as a player is known to most fans. His rapid rise to stardom, liis liigli rank among llie fielders and hitters ot liis day, and bis connection with tlvo~.great old Baltimore Orioles" needs no recounting liere. Suffice to say that from, a S�o lier month job In the bushes he has played and fought his way to a position which brings him close of $50,-000 a year. As a manager of the GiantsUie has won five pennants and one world's series for the New Y'ork club. Ills .National league champions of I'.HT lost the world's championship to the White Sox and the result was a hard blow to .McGraw, But he has come back ffghting again this v^ear, despite criticism froiii some quarters for ihe way he handled his club. .McGraw is a plugger by nature. Ills square jaw and steely blue eyes leave no dtnibt of that. Naturally of a fiery nature, ho has often taken the offensive at the drop of the hat. His trouble with Umpire Byron last'year was an oxamplfS. On tlie field ho never quits fighting to win. He is Inclined to drive his players, but lie has a way- of doing it that seldom causes trollbll^ As a judge ot players, McGraw ranks wilii the best, though he has never developed a great number of stars. Off the field .Mack is a tiuiet, congenial and rather retiring follow to meet. He is generous, a point blank conversatltmalist �witli tew comments to iiiake. lie impresses those wlio meet him as a mild-mannt^red man of jiower-but that is off the playing (ield. .McGraw's nggressivcness has shown itself in Hie hit-and-run style of baseball, .'\fter 45 years ho is still the kind of-fellow who "wtiiits to bust tho -bail." him. You've got to hand it to Herzog for one thin;.; in particular-ho Is a iiiigiitly clever business man. He demanded a two-year contract to with the Boston cliil) and in aiidition ho asked for a bonus. That he got every til ing he asked for Is a practical certainty. Whether or not Ilerzog and Stall-ings will get along remains to be seen. Herzog is a fiery bird who is liable to flash teniiier any time, and Stallings lias a combative nature that will brook no sucli cxhibitlou from one of his plaVers. FRAZEE'S "BLACK-EYE" alibi.* AH black-eye alibis wont into tho discard when Harry Frazee got to talking on tlio train bound for Hot Springs, wliere tho Red Sox wero in training, Tho jiresident ot the former cliampa wore dark goggles, hut theao could not obscure two dark patches that bad been hung on his face by the hand of man. Tho clianvc group did not refer to Frazen's appearance, but ho figured that thoy might, so hii beat-them to it- with this reiiiarkablo incident: "1 have a friend who is a great golfer i^iid a noblo doiiter, ] asked him to show me his way ot making a drive, which he did. This was in my room at the liotel. Then hejhanded the club to mo and suggested that 1 copy bis ])()sition and swing. "Tlie devil was in that club, al-though It was an innocent club to look at.
