Phlladelphia-Flttsburg, no game, rain. New York.-Four transplanted second basemen in the big show are playing better ball this season with their new teams than'they played before. The four in question are DerriU Pratt, who came to the Yankees from the Browns; Lee .Magee, traded to I tho -Reds by the Browns in a three-cornered deal with New 'i'ork; Larry Doyle, who came back to .McGraw via Boston and Chicago, and Job Gedeon, formerly with the Yankees and now regular second sacker of the Brownies. Pratt's hitting so far this year, has been an improvement over 1917. while Larry Doyle's great work with the stick has put new life into the Giant infield. Joe Gedeon, who was always an In-and-outer while wearing a Yankee uniform, largely, perhaps, because he was not kept in the lineup continuously, is busting the pill in better form now than he is wifli St. Louis, and Lee Magee, who was let out by the Yanks because of bajtting slumps, seems to have caught the slugging spirit since going to the Reds, Not only are these four playerS^ hitting ottener and more timely, but their fielding is snappier. It often works wonders to give a player a change of clubs, for some players grow stale when they are with one team for a few seasons. AMERICAN ASSOCIATION Louisville Oi 8, 2; Milwaukee 4, 7, 1.

It is certain that golfers who have been using poor wooden shafts will turn with relief to the steel constructed club, and tliey will have a valid excuse for the change after seeing a well hit ball turn off at right angles or do some freakl.sh stunt In the air. Shafts are in some cases so bad that after short usage they become Impossible. � Often the pro[e.,.sional hlraeelf can't tell until after tho Implement has been tried out. When he selects a shaft In tho rough without belns tap-ered down it probably has the priS-per feel and hang, and only after a couple of week:-) use does it becomq limp and whippy. purpose, Mitchell tho winner of 5011 races and well known to every turfman on tho continent and America. With rare tenacity of spirit ho has braved dangers which few cuuld endure ai;d live lu the course of Ills efforts to impt'ove the lot of war sufferers. Mitchell has won special recognition for his services from the French Government. At the moment ho is supporting 20 .orphan children and his son is In a training campMn England. Village Destitute. The village of Gouvleux contained 500 souls at the commencement of the war. The first winning of .the German invasion deetituted it of all but 20 persons 'ainons whom wore Mitchell, the cure and the mairle. In Chantilly, with a population of 4,000, only 150 residents, nmstly women and old men, elected to remain. The smoke from tho battle of tho Marno had scarcely lifted when..jHtch-oll, in company with his then 14-year-old son, set, out toward Senlls and Compolgne lu search of refugees and wounded soldiers. / "We were on tlie road from Chantilly to Compelgnc." he said. "Rounding a curve two miles west of Compcigno on our bicycles, a harsh command in French caused us to dismount. Six German soldiers, all hcav ily armed, and led by a huge sergeant, advanced toward us. Jabbed by Bayonets. " 'Who aro you' the loader deniandr cd, but without waiting for a reply turned to his men and gave an order to proceed northward. During the ensuing Journey, which I judged to be a distance of five miles, 1 was continually jabl>2d in the back with bayonets. They spoke very good Froncli. for, as I camo to know afterward, most of them had been employed in the vicinity before the war and at the outset had gono to join the German army, which thoy knew would advance to meet them. "On tho last leg of the journey one of the boches turned to me: ""You English swine; we'll show you what wo do with spies,' he said. "Wo climbed a hill leading to tho Devil's quarries. There was a camp containing about 100 soldiers. It seemed to be an observation post, as it lay on an elevation commanding a. vlow of the valley. The boches led us to a small cauvaa tent some die- ^ tanco from their main camp. The tent polo was buried deep in the ground and around it was an Iron ring, ti> which was attached a heavy chain and lock. 1, Chained (ly Ankle. "Wo were guaraed until the big, lumbering sergeant came up. The boy leaned over to take hla blcycla out ot the way, when tho German, with a back-handed swing ot his fist, struck him in tho face. 'Solo cochon.' he said gruffly, and moving over to me placed the chain around my loft ankle and snapped the lock. 1 was furious, but powerless. "'I'hat night It rained and blew a gale. Water flooded the tent. In tho early dawn the pole, under the weight of wet canvas and strong wind, had, fallen over to an angle, of 45 degrens.. Tho sergeant with a squad of mou came over to me. " 'Trying to escape, eh?" he shouted. " 'No.' I replied. 'Tho wind has blown It down." Bone Shattered. "'Don't answer me,' he retorted, and swung the butt end of his rifle at my head. Instinctively 1 raised my loft anp, the blow shattering tho bones ot my forearm. The pole tell and struck me on the arm. "How long I lay unconscious I do not know. But the pain brought ino around and I managed to tear strips of canvas from the tent and bandage tho arm nfter a fashion. "That night I crept away. Making I for tho cavo entrance. 1 stumbled across tho i)iIo of debris tliat fluttered the intorior. It was a mushroom (tdvo French peasants used. There 1 remained 30 hours, helpless with pain and lumgor. And then came semiconsciousness. What aroused mo wero the sweetest words 1 had ever heard spoken in English. ^ " 'Go on, boys. Never mind me. Give 'om hell!' The sound of tiring, together with shouts, gave mo now strSngt'i, for I knew Brltiah soldiers must be storming the observation post. I was carried back Into the Jines and finally reached Grouvleux. EDiarS. SMITH . .
