COMEDY OF EllilS
Oak Boys Would Have Defeated the
Home Team If it Hadn't Been for
Their Own Mistakes
(L. T. L)
Shakspere would have termed yes
terday's game between Arlo and
Ocaal a "Comedy of Errors," and in
deed that was what it was so far as
the Ocala team was concerned. The
home team made only 13 errors be
cause the game ended in the eleventh
inning. All they needed to make more
errors was more time. Swink was con
siderably off his feed but he was not
alone in his trouble. Only two of
the boys failed to make an error.
Frank Harris came out with a spot spotless
less spotless record but he had good reason
for it as he didn't handle a chance.
Leavengood handled two chances and
made no error.
Oak played much better ball than
Ocala but the breaks went against
them and they lost a game that
should have been theirs easily. They
made only two errors during the en
tire game, but both were costly. Cem Cements
ents Cements and Christopher both pitched
good ball under the circumstances.
More credit should be given to Clem Clements
ents Clements for his support was rotten.
Strickland thought he could relieve
Christopher in the ninth and stop
Ocala in .her effort to come back.
Leavengood was first up and laced a
long one to center field for a sacrifice.
Strickland didnt' read the handwrit handwriting
ing handwriting on the wall from that blow but
tried Fred Luffman and Fred credited
his batting average with a two-bagger-
When Oak took the field in the
next inning Strickland was content to
be back on the initial sack. Kickliter
finished the game for Oak.
The game started off like it was to
be a good one. Neither team made a
run until the fourth, when Ocala
made two. Oak made one in the sixth
and one in the eighth. Ocala made one
in the seventh. Oak made four in
the ninth, making the score 6 to 3 in
favor of Oak. When we came in for
our half in the ninth we made three
runs, tying the score. Neither team
scored in the tenth and Ocala made
the winning run in the eleventh.
The special features of the games
were the two umpires. Both -men
were trying to be fair and square but
they surely did make a bum job of
the game. No game in Ocala has seen
such poor decisions and so much
squabbling as this game brought
forth. Time after time the umpires
would letf a little argument change
their decisions. It is to be hoped that
no such demonstration of baseball will
ever be staged in Ocala again.

Now answer me, some goad fan,
what rule gives an umpire the right to
put a man back on the base, which he
has just left, except on a dead ball or
a foul? The rule says that if a catcher

that Catcher Harry Wood interfered
with the batter but still refused to
call the runner safe.
Again, when Perez was called out
on second, Mr. Connell repeatedly said
that he did not see the play. How can
an umpire give a decision on a play
that he does not see And even my
good friend Izlar said immediately
after the play that in hi3 opinion the
runner was safe.

GO TO YOUR BANKER
The Tampa Tribune wisely says:
. Go to your banker, you men who
are approached by sellers of this, that
and the other kindw of stock, or secu
rities. The Tampa bankers are getting
reports on all. the propositions being
submitted to you daily. They have
the facts, the proof financially, legally
and morally, concerning most of them,
and they are getting the data needed
to show the good from the bad."
It is due a man's own common
sense -and his pride in his business
judgment to investigate before he
buys, s Some of them are good, others,
and the most of them, are bad, so bad
that you will kiss your money good
bye if you put it in, say the bankers..

scatter his investmits; but no man
can afford to shut his eyes to probable
fact3 and open his ears to the swee
somnolent song of- a stock salesman,
and sink liis salary or his savings in
stuff that savors of nothing so much
. as it does of swindles.
The Tribune urges again: go to your
bankers and ask to see the confidential
reports they have on these stock pro
jects. You may not like what: you
learn, especially if you have been
foolish ? enough to invest without inr
vestigatingj but at 'least you will not
put any more good money into bad
schemes after your eyes are opened.;
Then, too, you owe it to the meri

the.bad ones, The banks have the
names of the good ones, as well as of

After reading an article by Max
Lief in the New York Tribune, says
the Toronto Mail and Empire, we
have arrived at the conclusion that if
the. Allies are determined upon win winning
ning winning the war they ought to move to
Germany. There they will receive the
fruits of victory. They will be able
to get a fine meal for fifty cents, and
for twelve dollars a year in Hamburg
they will be able to have the same sort
of accommodation that they will get
in Canada and the United States for
twelve dollars a week. A six-room
bungalow with bath is to be had there
for twelve dollars a year. It has been
decreed by the authorities, 'and au authorities
thorities authorities in Germany are quite as au
thoritative as ever they were. It is
true that it may be difficult, to find the
six-room bungalow with bath. When
fecund it may be tenanted, and build builders,
ers, builders, terrified by the order, are not
building six-room bungalows with any
great voluptuousness. Nevertheless, it
is cheap and pleasant to live in Ger Germany
many Germany if one does not have to pay the
engulfing German taxes, and if he is
able to take real money with him.
Mr. Lief explains that whereas
school children were taught that a
German mark was worth twenty-five
cents, so highly did the Germans
esteem it, now it is possible to lay
down an American dollar and receive
from 67. to 71 marks for it. The Can Canadian
adian Canadian dollar being somewhat less val
uable internationally, though hotly
sought in Canada, we may figure that
German1 mark is worth about two
of our cents. For sixty or eighty
cents one may have a dinner consist
ing of fish salad, potato soup, cutlets,
fried potatoes, apple sauce and a large
stein of fine beer. If you don't feel
like eating, you can have the beer,
which to many would seem an advan
tage.' The disappointed waiter is
said to expect a ten-cent tip, but we
presume that by this time he has
ceased to be an optimist, and after
the meal is ready to call the incident
closed if the guest doesn't kick him
on the shins. Nevertheless, he lives
on his tips. He receives no salary.
Milk remains a luxury in Germany.
Coffee is not drunk as it was former
ly because of the milk scarcity. Sugar
s almost as it was in the good old
days of the blockade, but Mr. Lief
voices his astonishment at the fact
that pies and cakes with huge coatings
of sugar and candy are rife. He has
failed to read the painstaking explan explanations
ations explanations of Canadian candy makers to
the effect that all the candy manu
factured in a year accounts for mere
ly a decimal point of sugar. Mr. Lief
says that he was frequently mistaken
for an Englishman, a Spaniard or a
Hungarian, but never for an Ameri-
can. it once we saw nis name speii
we should have read Sherlock Holmes
for nothing if we had confused him
with any of these nationalities. In all

was flattered he found nothing but
civility among the Germans. We in-.

When he borrows from the govern

from participation in the profits of the
expedition. Believing the whole thing to

the exclusion of Virginia.
CHAPTER VI. Wild pigs abound on
the island, and "Cookie," the colored
member of the party, insists he has seen
a "hant," in the form of a white pig.
During a walk Virginia meets the "hant,"
a white bull terrier, aiul proudly brings
him into camp. I

So I brought him triumphantly across
the Rubicon of the little stream, and
marched him Into camp under the as astounded

I lay back idly in the stern as the

beneath the strokes of my splendid
oarsman. More than ever he looked
like the island god. Every day he
grew more brown and brawny, more
superb in his physical vigor.
The cliff3 on the north shore of the
cove were considerably higher than
on the other side. The wreck lay
close in, driven high upon the nar narrow

Sausalito shore at home. The single
mast had Ut-u broken off short, and
the stump of the bowsprit was visi visible,
ble, visible, like a finger beckoning for rescue
frbrn the crawling sacd.
"Poor forlorn little boat!" I said.

"Then why leave her strewn about
on the rocks? And besides" here the
puzzle of Crusoe recurred to me and
seemed to link itself with this "then
how did he get away himself?"
We rowed in close under the port
bow of the sloop, and on the rail I
made out a string of faded letters. I
began excitedly to spell them out
"I s 1 oh. Island Queen You

"Luckily forgot the snake, though!"
remarked the 'Honorable Bertie with
unlooked-for vivacity. For so far Aunt

been unfulfilled by the sight of a sin single

credit of St. Patrick and by Cookie to
that of the pigs." .-
"Snakes 'd jes' be oysters on de half

As we rowed away from the melan melancholy

top of the cliff, and I resolved that

visit the Island Queen again. My mind

figure of the copra gatherer. Perhaps
the loss of his sloop had condemned
him to weary months or years of soli solitude
tude solitude upon the island,, before the rare
glimmer of a sail or the trail of a

gladdened his longing eyes.
Suddenly I turned to Cuthbert Vane.
