Bum* Noted Ulen'i Mf>thort«-Th« Way to Kieapo the Ununl Blumlorn of I'ltch- cri—Many Points for Amat«ar» tit Study. nT, 1SU-I.1 It is safe to say that one of the ambitions of tho average American youth is to become a scientific pitcher, Jlind you, I do not imply that they nil want to shine as professional pitchers and to tulopt baseball as a profession as a muans of earning a livelihood, but they want to be pitchers. Why, you ask; and 1 cnn answer: "I don't know." It must be in the nir. It will bo wall, I think, to state »ho requisites of a pitcher in their order and tlurn to illustrate these requisites by a cursory look at the development of tho game. The pitcher must be a strong man physically. That is, ho must take care of his health. It is no exaggeration to say that tho best pitchers go into training on the scale that Sullivan, Corbett and Mitchell did for their bouts. Tho next thing is a good eye. Tho accurate measurement of distance is half tho battle. To know just how far away the ball Is means no possibility of a muff. Thirdly, the pitcher must stand the right distance from tho home plate. Good delivery is not possible when the plate is too far. Why is it that staid business men, Wall "street bankers, doctors, college professors, ministers of the gospel and men of science and letters, go dally to the ball ground, howl like a band of Sioux Indians when their favorite tea:i makes a good play or turns apparent defeat into a victory at the e'eventh hour? But they do it, as has been illustrated at every national league contest played in this country. There must be something in baseball which LESTEK P. GERMAN. appeals to the American heart, which stirs the blood and makes the old at least feel young again. \Ve can understand why tho crowd howls at a race track and why it hovrls at a prize fight. Money is bet.cn one, and the yell which goes up when the winning horso flashes by the judges means money won for the lucky better. The demonstration nt the ring side f re- queatly shows the depravity of human nature, for the crowd gloats in the suffering of the weaker man and cheers on the victor. Tho more blood and brutality the greater -the amount of 'the enthusiasm. ' -• Now baseball does -not depend upon either money and gambling or- Wood »nd brutality to make It attractive to the general public. It is a; scientific, manly sport and It appeals to the yonng and old of both sexes. Its evil effects are few,''and compared with ,m6st other' sports it really has no demoralizing influences. A fond parent may occasionally find his*'offspring tolaylng. ball ln : the lots, instead of the youngster "being in school as he supposed. If, however, the youngster wanted to play "hooky" he would probably do so whether there was any ball game that day or not. A pitcher should acquire a spring •tep. This is an easy matter if a man OVEB HAND DBOP BAH. practises a little. Learn to move all the toes freely. Thus swift delivery is neutralized. I started out to tell about pitchers and pitching 1 , but my admiration for the great national game has started me on an eulogizing tour. I started in to say that it is the ambition of every boy to be u, pitcher, that is every boy who is physically able to ploy the game. Every boy wants to play baseball and most of them do so, at some time In their lives. Now the pitohar is the star position on a t«am * and naturally most people "wanttooconpy the center of th« stage," so to spe*k. Mnoh depends upon a pitcner, and a team otherwise strong with ft weak pitcher cannot expect'to win many aamei. and » champioiuhip.nerer.. There are, of course, many things that can only be learned from experience—such as the proper way to n«t In understanding sigDAls. The evolution of the pitcher furnishes an interesting study not only to the athlete but to the scientist. In the days of the old Knickerbockers when enough runs were made to make a baseball score look like a cricket match the pitcher was not such an important individual as he is to-day. In those days an underhand sort of delivery was used and even lon^ after that it "was not an unusual thing for a team to score one hundred runs in a frame. Then the pitcher was allowed more license, tho overhand delivery came in and this was foliov/ei ty the curve, which learned moc of science said was an Impossibility. Even after a public exhibition was held, and a pitcher sent tho curves between two posts, the scientists argued that it was an optical 'AN -ISMJUKVE. Illusion, Eticking to their original idea that it was physically impossible for a man to cause a globe to curve in the air. But it was done then and it is now accomplished by thousands of pitchers. Pitching comes natural to some players just as catching does to others, outfield work to others and infield work to the remainder. To become a successful pitcher a man or boy must have something besides brute, force. The day when speed alone would make a reputation for a pitcher is pas.t. To be a strategic pitcher to-day a twirler must have speed, a perfect command of the ball and puzzling curves. Another thing which I find of material advantage to me is in studying tho weak points in the batsmen who face me. Some batsmen can hit one sort of a ball and they can't hit another, and it, is to a pitcher's interest to find out all these little things and utilize them accordingly. There is another point in pitching which beginners should study and that is the position of the feet and the hands. A pitcher whoso feet get in his way can never hope to become famous as a green diamond twirler. Then a pitcher who allows the batsman, to see the ball all the time is at a disadvantage. Of course the rules will not permit one to hold the ball behind the beck before delivering It, as was the case years ago, but If one IB blessed with large hands, large pals being plentiful in baseball, it is on easy matter to conceal the ball or practically so. Now as to training—a particularly Important duty for a pitcher. A pitcher's arm, that is his pitching arm, la nil stock in trade. He must watch OUT-OUBVB. that arm as carefully »s a mother does her babe. Most pitchers cover the arm •with a sweater or coat when they are not pitching, while others wear flannel bandages upon their arms and shoulders. Concerning training, moreover, I can say nothing that anyone does not know who has made a study of physical culture. All that is essential is to observe the rules of health, and to expand the chest and lungs. A player in active training will find hand ball on- excellent exercise, as it develops all the muscles. Bowling is also a favorite pastime of mine In the winter and spring, as I find that kicking down tho ten pins Iceepa mf arm good and strong all the time. A pitcher should be careful about using his full strength in the early spring games. The bones and muscles act contrary, particularly on a very cold day. It has been said that a ptfcher when he goes into a game should be prepared to think that it is his lost. I do not believe this, for a pitcher who nurses his strength ought to last for many years. The long and honorable career of Timothy Keofe, John Clarkson and James Oalvin illustrate this LESTER P. OEBMAS. An Earnest Investigator. Gentle Ladj—I hope you poto church Bometimes. Good Boy—Yes'm.

If one would SGO some microtomist's work, let him seek a medical studant possessed of a microscope. Tlia same will show him a number of glass slips, three inches long, perhaps, by three- quarter wide. These will be labelled: One, ' Muscle;" another, "Sciatio Nerve;" a third, "Scalp of » Child," and a fourth, "Cat's Liver." Such names do not lead one to anticipate art and beauty, and this makes the art and beauty all tho more charming. In the center of each of those slips, covered by an extrumely thin circular diHlcofglasN.hu will .see a little slice of matter, tin; si/.e, perhaps, of the head of a tin tack, or smaller, and so thin as to be altogether transparent. This is, let us say, your cat's liver, etherealixecl by the microtomint Under the microscope it has the air of a circular stained glass window; the "cells" of the livev form an interlacing tracery of golden pink, and the diverse blood vessels, of which there are three sorts, appear, if injected, as branching 1 shapes of crimsom, blue and other sweet and pure colors, even such as the Madonnas of tho old masters wear. The scalp may be even more delightful, with its hairs like stout, brown masts, a greenish cuticle and sunsetr tinted sub-dermal tissue below. It is obvious that with such an infinite variety of material the micro- tomist must needs have a great variety of instruments. Some things he cuts with a common razor in his hand; such must needs be of a ilrm consistency, neither flabby nor brittle. Some again —larger things— he cuts with a plane. Little things that he cannot hold he imbeds in wax or carrot, or the pith of the older, and so gets a flngerful that may be grasped and cut. A soft substance, such as human muscle, he hardens by the immersion of a lump of it in a suitable fluid; or he takes it •fresh and almost living, and freezes it firm upon a metal slab.by means of ether. A rock is cut into thin slices by a lapidary's wheel, a rotating disk of steel iriade keen by rubbing diamond powder, on the edge, and these slices are stuck to a piece of glass and gradually rubbed thinner and thinner upon emery powder o£ increasing fineness, and finally upon rouge. Powdery things like sand grains the micro- tomist overcomes by imbedding in hard substances. lie particularly dreads and rejoices over such brittle substances as coal. One would expect mere blackness of coal even at its thinnest, but th'cro are certain coals from Scotland which, when cut, reveal myriads of little jjattened cases of streaky orange or lemon-yellow color, the spore shed long since by the trees whioh perished to form our coal seams. There are in London perhaps half a hundred or more human beings who liye by this unknown art. One we know of plies his trade in a little den high above the roar of the Strand. He 'sits at his window facing the light, watch-glasses and little shallow dishes full of stains around him, microscope and micrometer ready to hand, sometimes amid a heavy aroma of ether from the freezing microtome, and sometimes reminding one oddly of pine trees and wide mountain slopes, with the resinous smell of his Canada balsam. All about him are little bottles— innumerable little bottles— labeled "skin of toad," "orange pips," "pine inflorescence," "lancolet," "kitten's lung," "tumor," and the like — or rather the unlike, some of them fit ingredients for the brew of a witch. One whole shelf presently catches the eye, labeled "Mrs. Webster," and in smaller letters the part of Mrs. Webster is specified. He relates a gruesome story in a tone of pathetic regret; how thi« MM. Webster was a landlady of his who died suddenly— "poor old lady"— and was "post-mortemed" by a confidential friend. "So I took these little mementoes," he says, waving his hand at the shelf. It is a grim and sordid fate for a landlady that she should he peculated by her own lodger and retailed at Od., 9d. and Is. a slice, according to the choiceness of the parts. But there are those who suspect our microtomist of having obtained his human material in a legitimate way from the dissecting room, and having created his Mrs. Webster for literary effect Still, the jumble of matters in the eorpulent little bottles upon his shelves remain odd enough; pickled organisms from the deep sea are side by side with •craps of plant, root and stem, and the mortal remains of a pet puppy; while a fruit that grew and ripened in a jungle of Borneo shares a bottle with some cubic Inch of substance that was once part of tho vestlture of a human soul in a London hospital. Sooner of later they will come to tho knife edge and the glass slip. Our microtomist is indeed on the level of Shakspeare. All being pays its tribute to his art; he makes it clear and brilliant for us, using hi» stains and media not to hide but to display, making truth truer and the visible plain. His work is a veritable microcosm—a summary of the world, The ordinary rnicrotomists who cut sections for the 'medical students, as a rule, do little in the direetion of cutting rocks. ThU has a special technique, and is practiced chiefly at the greater geological schools— at the Royal School of Mines, for instance. It is almost impossible to convoy an idea of the appearance of sections of some granite rocks when seen in polarized light Let the reader think of the tints of a film of gas refuse floating on water, of the spectrum thrown by a glass prism, of fire ona], of the mother of pearl, of THE I the „* STRONG POINT about the cures by: Hood's Sarsaparilta Is They start from old stained-glass windows, of Wurne- Jones at his best. All these, and more also, will be seen in such a rock as Plcritc or Dunlte. A day will come when artists will seek these things and learn a thousand delights of coloring from their study. For microscopic sections may be collected for their beauty, for their technical excellence, thinness and so forth, or their historical interest, and for their scientific importance. —l-'ull .Mall Uudgat. TIGHT CLOTHING. The Many Evl) Kffecu IH'Hiiltlne tram ThU Cunte. The more loosely clothing 1 fits the less it conducts heat, because a layer of air is interposed between it and the body—and air is an exceedingly bad conductor of heat. This protecting- layer of nir enables the body in winter to keep its normal temperature the more easily, because the heat p-iven oft at the surface of the body passes slowly through it; whereas if the clothing fit too closely to the sldn heat is dissipated with much prreater rapidity. In summer time, on the other hand, the air in which we move is not so warm as the objects upon which tho sun's rays fall directly, and so the surface of clothes may become much hotter than the air surrounding them. The advantage of the layer of the air is obvious also in this case. Therefore we see that in hot and in cold weather, too, tightly-fitting clothing defeats tho first and great object of wearing clothes, and tends to exhaust the bodily strength and make it unfit for work., Again, the clothing must be so constructed as not to interfere with the freedom of the movement of any part of the body; otherwise the due performance of some function is interfered with, so that injury results, small foot may be a desirable possession, but it is useless to attempt to obtain it by the compression of the foot by too small a pair of boots. Freedom of movement is at once impaired, and graceful, easy walking is a sheer impossibility. Tho victim of tight boots is self revealed by the ungainly gait— a much more conspicuous infirmity than a large foot. In addition to the discomfort necessarily experienced, permanent injury may be caused to the structures of the foot. Deformity of tlio toe results, and one particular deformity, known as "hammer toe,' 1 is often thus produced, the pressure of tho boot causing the toes to override one another. The great tou becomes turned outwards, th^ ball becomes unduly prominent, and walking- becomes difficult. A commoner result of a tight shoe is the formation of corns. Whenever any part of the body is subjected to intermittent pressure, thickening of tho tissues occurs at that spot and a corn is the result, which is capable of causing extreme pain, especially il slightly inflamed. The ill effects of tight shoes are sometimes increased by having the heel (which is generally much too high) placed almost under the middle of the foot, and the climax of absurdity is reached by making the front of the shoe point sharply. By this type of shoe ingrowing toe nail—a most painful condition—is often produced. Tho corset is also very frequently worn too tight As a means of support the corset is doubtless of use, but worn too tightly it presses down the diaphragm and it interferes with tho organs of digestion and circulation. It is notorious how frequently very tightly-laced ladies suffer from chronic indigestion. How often do they faint in church and other places where the heat may be excessive! Nor is the effect of Mffht clothing confined to such complaints. The bones and organs suffer from this influence, and after death they are found to be deeply grooved, corresponding to the points of pressure, and greatly displaced. I have no doubt whatever but that many of the nervous complaint* from which women sutler "originate in this way. Nor are mon altogether free from this fault of tight lacing. Many wear tight belts, especially when about to engage in violent exercise. Rupture may thus be caused. Tight cravats aro also injurious; the neck should be loosely clothed. Tight (farters interfere with the flow of blood through the veins, and a tendency to varicose Teins results. ' How great the influence of tight clothing is, is shown by a comparison of the frequency with which soldiers and sailors suffer from diseases of the great blood vessels. Pressure of clothing from its weight may also act injuriously. The fuU- flowing long skirts are suspended from the waist, which is thus tightly compressed. • Lastly, tight gloves may cause much discomfort. There is no more painful sensation than that produced by wearing a tightly-fitting pair of gloves on a cold day.—Cassell's Magazine. One of the Dellgbtt ot Life. When old Kaiser Wilbelm was still prince of Prussia he had one day st Bablesberg, near Potsdam, his -beautiful and ever favorite residence, a visit from that prince among landscape gardeners, Eurst Hermann von Fuck- ler-Muskau, who somewhat bluntly expressed his disappointment at tbe slow rate of progress in certain improvements in the grounds—improvements which he had himself suggested on the occasion of a previous visit. The future emperor pleaded his limited means. "But does your royal highness never borrow money? 1 ' queried Prince Puckler, evidently much amazed. "Never, my dear prince, was the smiling reply.
