Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta THIinsnAY. SEPTEMBER 14, 1016 HAS FATHER TIME WITH AID OF THE -JINX PUT BONUS OUT (Tlie Sporting News) The Ion; predicted seems .to have Come to Wagner nupirr- ently Is done.. But Old Father Tlmo hud to call the Jinx to his aid to put alonuo out. The game's most popurir figure has appeared In the li" O two or three times in a monUi. First it was a ImiUecl.ihnmli, then .lV.ii.iii- ed tendon, and tills latter injury wan nggravated tlie other day when ilonus going in as a pinch hitter, swims hard and missed. Sucli injuries do not mend rapidly in men'post 40 and it Is hardly likely Wagner will get into another game this season, unloss perhaps to hit for some would-be successor who has yet to find bis batting eye. Men past -10, once they arc compelled to take long vacations, also tlnd it hard to come back, and therefore we fear much that Iloiius has surrendered for good his place in the Pirate lineup. Since it had to come, it Is better by Jar that Hoiius retires as he does. Bet- ter that he should be put out by an in- jury while still retaining much his greatness as a player tliiin he should gradually slow down to the point where everybody could see it anil commiserate over It. Tlio latent compilation ot National League averages shows the gray-hair- ed old war horse, ill the 98 games played before taking to the bench, hit- tint' for .1118, which makes him the second hest hitter In his league. Only lake Daubert, also now a cripple, loads him Olio almost wishes Hint Jake will return to the game just long enough to drop below Wagner's batting, lig- liros, and that no aspirins youngsters will ho able to reach them ill tho closing month of tlie senson. Do you catch the drift? That won: mean that old'Honus Wagner, in his last season in baseball, led his league in hitting! But hold the press! Word just comes that John Henry Wagner says lie is not as lame as they make out ahd that he thinks he will got back into the game again "if they will let me."
