Rogers Hornsby Hardest Hitter in History of Baseball
No less authority than John B. Sheridan, rti** veteran baseball writer, editor and commentator, declares that Rogers
Hornsby, ace of the St. Louis Cardinals, Is the greatest batsman of all time. Sheridan argues his point with calmness
and cold logic. He had seen and known and admired all of the old-time famous ones, Anson, Helehanty, Lajole,
Wagner and Crawford. He considers the Kuthlan age. He set* forth the strength of the half dozen hardest hitters and
also the weakness of Hornsby, and yet still Is forced to the conclusion that the Cardinal second sacker Is the premier
batsman of all time. Hornsby hits 'em on the nose and drives 'em through and over the defense like a bullet. And
therein lleth his supremacy. Anson and the old-timers hit hard, but great InHelders of their day often shrank with
naked hands, where the ordinary Inflelder of today boldly traps with the mitt. There were great pitchers I lien, hut
♦here are more good pitchers now. And still Hornsby hits for a higher average year after year than the greatest of
Hornsby Hits Straight
Ruth lifts rfhd pulls the hall. Hornsby drives It; he cracks it straight through the center of the opposition. No
short right field fence helps the calm-faced, earnest Cardinal clouter. He gets that .400 average from the power and
fipeed of his drives alone. His hits have the "wtiang." Nothing in all the history of baseball approaches Hornsby's
dally drives through the assembled defense of six helders for the highest batting average for V00 consecutive games
on record. Cobb complied his record from spe^l, craft and his left-hand advantage of start towards the base. Horns-
by compiles his from clean, true, hard, consistent socking alone.
Out to Break Record.
Hornsby out this year to break the Wagner record of four straight seasons of Notional league butting supremacy,
Is batting over .410. Other batsmen lift 'em and bunt 'em and beat em but Hornsby drives em through. As a hitter,
pure and simple, his record seems to place him above all the batsmen of the old time and of the present day. 1 le
facts and the figures give him his kingship to rule without a rival or a superior.

Manager Kelly Was
Sore at His Stars
There will probably always be
Kellys managing clubs, which
brings to mind a little Incident
In Spartanburg the other day.
The Kelly who handles the
Spartans goes by the name of
Mike, but his front handle ac-
tually Is Bernard.
Kelly is like most of the de-
scendants of the Auld Sod. and
has a quick, biting wit. The
team which had been given a
good beating this day was being
transported to the hotel In a
speedy bus. The owner of the
bus happened to be a passen-
ger along with the players.
"Slow down there," command-
ed the owner of the chauffeur,
"we've got a vuluahle cargo
"Go ahead," roarfd Mike, "kill
every blankety-blank one of 'em.
they're no good, anyway."

Hollis Thurston, star twlrler for the
Chicago White Sox team, was turned
loose by the St. Louis Americans early
last season. St. Louis concluded that
Thurston would never become a good
pitcher and keeping him was wasting
Chicago needed material, pitchers
especially. The training season had
been a disappointment. The recruits
failed to come up to the promised
mark. Chicago was grabbing ahout
desperately for players and when St.
Louis let Thurston go Chlfcago signed
him. He rould not be worse than some
of the others the White Sox had been
As the first half of the season of
1924 came to a close the leading
pitcher of the major leagues was this
same Thurston. He hud a record of
13 consecutive victories. That Is the
best record shown by a pitcher In sev-
Thurston Is an excellent pitcher. He
lias a lot of stuff and he seems to
know how to pitch. He created his
record with inferior catchers, chiefly,
for Ray Schalk, the crack receiver of
the White Sox, was out of the game
most of the time with injuries. So
Thurston is pretty much responsible
for Thurston's sensational success.
In St Louis they moan over the
absence of Thurston. If George Slsler
had Thurston this year they believe
the Browns could win the pefinant.
In July of 1915, Connie Mack
dropped Bob Shawkey, having con-
cluded that Shawkey could never be-
come a major league pitcher. New
York .picked him up at the waiver
price and he was u big factor In win-
ning pennants for the Yankees.
Connie Mack dropped Warren Og-
den this year. Washington signed
him. Ogden has been a factor In
pulling Washington to the top.
Any manager Is likely to make the
same mistake. All of them have.

runs about 4<3 per cent protein and

Lambs Properly Docked
and Trimmed Are Best
The practice of selling ram Iambs,
and lambs that have not been docked,
would seem to be one of those cus-
toms thjit are common in other lines
of business—they are the results' of
Ignorance or carelessness. It belongs
to the same custom of putting godd
feed Into scrub animals; in wasting
manure; In burning straw stacks; In
leaving high-priced farm machinery
out in the weather; etc., etc.
From all the evidence we cun
gather, the practice of trimming and
docking lambs seems to he pretty
well established as a money-making
proposition, says the Farmer and
ftret-der. Prices of sheep and lambs
averaged 75 per cent higher in 1923
than In 1913. Active consumer de-
mnnd exists for choice quality lamb.
The problem of supplying this quality
will be solved If buck lambs are made
Into wethers and all lambs are docked,
properly finished and marketed at the
right ages and weights. These oper-
ations should be performed when
lambs are eight to fifteen days old.
There is abundant proof that they
are profitable for the Individual sheep
producer. Trimmed Inmbs command
higher prices and return larger profits.
Conclusive evidence of this Is fur-
nished by tire extension division of
the college of agricullure of the Uni-
versity of Kentucky, which obtained
records of 31,000 lambs marketed last
year. This data shows that wether
lambs returned more than $2 per hun-
dred above the price paid for buck

Lightning Safe Fences
If fence posts nre of wood or cement,
to safeguard stock from lightning,
either put in a steel fence post every
few rods or staple heavy fence wire
the entire length of post In contact
with the fence wires so as to ground
them. Then, if lightning strikes the
fence, or a tree near the fence, the
death-dealing holt will not follow far
along the fence and kill stock that
may have pushed against It In a storm.
Of course. If the posts are of steel
they ground the wires perfectly. Wire
fences fastened to buildings should be
grounded at the last post or two and

Braised Tonflue.—Cook a beef tongue
slowly until tender with a slice of
onion, and a bay leaf added to the
water while cooking. Itemove the

three tahlespoonfuls each of flour and
butter mixed; add a pint of stewed

mer with the tongue for two hours.
Serve from the casserole.
Cherry Tart.—Take a can of rich
cherries, either canned or preserved,
drain from the Juice, and add to It a
slight thickening of cornstarch or ar-
rowroot. Cook until the starch taste
Is entirely removed. Into a baked

liver nnd after cooking cut Into cubes.
Prepare the sauce by cooking two
tahlespoonfuls of olive oil with two
tahlespoonfuls of scraped onion and a
tnblespoonful of chopped parsley un-
til the onion is brown. Add one tea-
spoonful of tabasco sauce, three
bruised whole cloves, one cupful of
brown stock, one cupful of stule bread
crumbs soaked In hot water and
drained. Mix well, add the liver, v a-
son with a teaspoonfui of salt and
pepper to taste. Serve In a border of
rice, garnished with fresh parsley.
If you are fond of roquefort, make
a roquefort salad. Take a crisp head
of lettuce well washed and dried, chill
and arrange in a salad bowl which has
been rubbed with a cut clove of gar-
lic, add four tahlespoonfuls of the best
olive oil, one of vinegar, one of chilli
sauce, one-half teaspoonfui of salt and
a few dashes of cayenne. Mix well
toss over the lettuce broken bits of
roquefort cheese, as much or little as
one likes; add the dressing and serve
all very cold.
