Denton Tecumseh (Cy) Young. who was without a peer during his long service as a major league pitcher, was born in Gilmore, O.. on March 29. 1867. YOUTIWS career was nothing short of wonderful for a pitcher. He served twenty-two years in the game. beginning in 1890 with the Cleveland club after a short season with the Canton club. During his career he played with the Cleveland Nationals. St. Louis Nationals, Boston Americans. Cleveland Americans, and Boston Nationals, ending with the last named club in the spring of 1912. "Uncle Cy," as he was familiarly known, made many records and gained some wonderful achievements. He pitched four no-hit 'games, one against the Athletics, in which not a man reached first base. In 1904 Cl twirled forty-five innings straight without being scored on. He also played with three champion teams and one worlds champion team. On July 18.1910, pitching for Cleveland against Washington, Young won his 500th victory in the major leagues. Young's habits throughout his- long baseball career have been absolutely above reproach. and he stands out as one of the few popular ball players who have been true to themselves and the prin. ciples they adopted when they took up the game as a profession.

Electric Motor Generator. TT is pot strange that the ideal self starter grew out of a simple thing. For Many years a great corporation had been making motor generators to attach to the axles of railroad cars for lighting purposes. The application was direct and the light generating capacity positive. One day a man attached a similar motor. generator to a gasoline- engine and by a simple arrangement made it serve as a fly wheel. The great Corliss and Allis power generators are directly connected in mud i the,. same way. This is not a new untHed experiment, but an oldpHnciple iirriplyapplied to a new use. - You have already ridden thoUsands of miles in Pullman cars and each mile demonstrated that the fundamental principle of the' S. L. stardng and lighting system is right. i :Little weight is added. There are no bearings, chain s or gears. Thinkwhatthat means. Silence and efficiencyof courseare the results. - 11 The Thomas B.
