&1l3S$ag!fciifitv "MOOCHA BUENO AMERICAN," SAY CUBAN FANS WHO THINK RIGLER IS "BEST EVER" GROUND KEEPER ' Charles Rigler, the National league umpire, worked in Cuba after the close of the 1911 season, in the games between the Na tional league teams and the na tives. Rigler is delighted with the country and the people. I worked in Cuba last fall and had a splendid time. When it comes to entertaining American guests, the Cubans are at their best. I got a letter from Rigler the other i day and it was amusing. ' "The other evening," wrote Rigler, "an American started a I fanfest with me. He asked me which city I preferred to work in. It afterward developed that he was a Bostonian, and naturally he expected me to reply immediate ly, 'Boston.' I "was in a jesting mood, and answered that I pre ferred to work in Havana. "He asked why I preferred Ha vana, and when I told him it was because' I couldn't understand a thing the fans were saying he al most keeled over. "He saw the strength of...

mmmmmmmmamss&m SPIKING BY COBB UNINTENTIONAL; HE NEVER INJURES BOBBY WALLACE By Bill Evans. Frequently the papers mention that So and So was spiked by Ty Cobb. After one of these spiking episodes, the question is'asked me a thousand times, "Does Cobb try to injure players?' Because Cobb ("The Peach") figures in many spiking inci dents, the public gets the idea that he willfully tries to injure in v fielders to get a base, and create fear so that the next time he slides the guardian will be afraid. In answer to the question, I always say that Cobb never intentionally injured a player. While it may seem that Cobb deliberately tries to injure a player, such is not ever the case. Few players, after the excite ment of the pennant race has passed, will say Cobb tries to put players out of the running. I have heard infielders admit that they, not Cobb, were re sponsible for an accident. When Cobb slides he is a hard man to figure. If the player guesses correctly all is well, but if he ...

First, the revolu tionary government at Shanghai will inaugurate a bank with a capital of $5,000,000. The proposed bank will issue $5,000,000 of bank notes with securities, not mere, paper dollars. The govern ment will make these notes legal tender in all business exchanges and transactions. "Secondlv, the. revolutionary government will issue government bonds to the value of $10,000,000 ($5, $10, $50, $100). They will be redeemed in six years and the interest bearing upon these bonds will be 12 per cent. "Thirdly, money will be and as a matter of fact, has been, raised by voluntary contributions.

HH jrttP5.-fc- " "- 'p - - - -r- ! - gy j- u n t - V ' - ' INNOCULATION FOR TYPHOID Though innoculation against typhoid has been successfully practiced for a number of years, the majority of people know little or nothing about this mode of fighting this disease. Innocu lation has been used on a large scale in various armies, and with such results as to prove its effi ciency beyond doubt. Typhoid is what is called a "self limiting disease." That is .to say, it stirs up the system to the production of antitoxins that drive out the typhoid germs if the patient doesn't die before the battle between the germs and the "antibodies" is over. It has been found that by in jecting under the skin a small quantity of dead typhoid culture the body will react against it and produce enough of these "anti bodies" to ward off such live ty phoid germs as may get into the system. The body is then immune from typhoid for a period of two years or longer. ' The value of innoculation for typhoid was striki...

1 THE DAILY SHORT STORY. His Bar Examination. The state bar examination was in progress. The watchful eyes of the members of the examining committee were upon each candi date. -The applicants were am bitious in the best sense. Main would be heard from in the years to come. John Harding, esq., was one of the examiners., Harding was a broad man. One candidate before him enlisted his sympathy. This man was Victor Hope. There was- a story back of the young man. Hope was a bank teller, and had maintained a widowed mother while pursuing his stu ies. He had studied in an even ing school. Another fact was also known to the examiner. Hope was in love with an attractive and de serving stenographer who work ed in a busy law office. While some of Hope's friends were somewhat skeptical, Myrtle Wil low had never lost faith in him. The world did not understand. The examiner did. A hero sat before him. The Hon. John Harding ob served the youth a slave to am bition. Was it a good thing for a young m...

He glanced at his watch. Five minutes alone remained. He again stepped to the desk. "Why don't you attempt to answer qeustion 13?"' he again asked. "I don't know whether to say yes or no," was again the reply to the desperate candidate. "You don't know?'' repeated the Hon. John Harding. "Didn't o- your girl know what to say when you asked her to marry you?" When Harding looked over the papers the next day he found that the question had been answered in the affirmative. It further ap peared that the correct answer ing of this question alone saved the standing of Victor Hope. Six months later Hope was appointed assistant to the JJnjted States district attorney, but his wife doesn't know to. this day that she set the example which "made her husband an honored and success ful member of the bar.

In towns where there fr f ll-Il I are state Universities slopping over raw-raw embry journalists willing to cub for nothing a week, one sometimes has to work at reporting for less than ditch diggers' waes.) He lived in a little back room in .in unpretentious private house and took his meals at the Busy Bee lunch counter. By limiting his breakfast to 10 cents and his supper to 15, and by cutting out his dinner altogether and having his last sum mer's suit dyed a guaranteed fast black, he managed to eke out a sort of an existence.

mmmmmmmmmmmmm And to this day the girl who called for him that night remains a profound mystery to that cub reporter. He has no glimmer of an idea as to who she was. He doesn't know whether it was the Skirt of Romance that touched his life so light that night, or merely that of commonplace sav the skirt of a book agent. He only knows that she called for him, that the landlady vowed that she was beauti ful and further than that he knows nothing at all. a , f ..-, i, .,,,- ,-,,511 i.nnur orivi-Viinnr further thnn that about it now.

Which again raises the ques tion: "Why is a sensible man's son?" Or, perhaps, it has something to do with Mosaic theory of sins of the fathers.
