Ten Inning Battle Went to Ocala By
The Close Score Of One
to Two
Fisher won his own game from
Leesburg yesterday afternoon by a
little timely hitting and considerable
timely head work. Early in the game
the Ocala batters began to complain
that Scharding was using emery on
the ball and asked the umpire to put
a stop to it, but Ryan was not in the
humor to stop anything yesterday so
he refused to make any investigation.
Finally Fisher told Sir Buckles that he
would show the Leesburg sluggers a
little about the art of throwing an
emery ball. He started his little dem demonstration
onstration demonstration in the fifth inniir- and used
the nice little rough spots that
Scharding had rubbed on the ball. For
four innings only twelve men faced
him and seven of them fanned, six
of which strike-outs came in a row.
By that time Scharding decided that
it would be better not to use the em emery
ery emery ball since he had to let Fisher use
the same balls when he was pitching.
Osser was carrying the sandpaper foi
the Leesburg lads. At the beginning
of each inning the ball would go to
Osser at short for a minute and then
it would be put in play. Several loyal
Wildcat fans became suspicious of this
unusual circumstance and kept their
eyes on Osser. Each time he returned
the ball to Scharding he would take
something out oS his glove and put it
in his pocket. When the fans got so
hot in behind him that he was afraid
he would be searched he dropped the
sandpaper on the ground behind sec second
ond second base and then later moved it a
little further out in the field but un unfortunately
fortunately unfortunately for him sandpaper is
white and floats a little when it falls,
so the watchful fans sent Leon to the
spot and captured the "rough stuff."
After this open exposure and the suc successful
cessful successful way in which Fisher was mak making
ing making use of the ball which they so
kindly roughened for him the Lake
county boys decided to play with a
regulation ball.
In another instance Fisher beat the
other fellows at their own game. Theii
coach on the first base line was steal
ing Overstreet's signals and tipping
the batter off so that he knew what to
expect. Fisher learned that this was
going on and framed up double sig
nals with Eddie. From then on the
batters made monkeys of themselves
when they obeyed the tip from the
coaching box. They would strike at
the worst kind of balls and let the
prettiest strikes go by because they
were looking for something else.
Aside from the strategic moves h
made during the game Fisher pitched
a regular game of ball, too. He fan
ned nine and only let up five hits in
ten innings. Scharding tossed a good
game for the visitors with five strike strikeouts
outs strikeouts to his credit and only five hits
against him.
Edde Overstreet caught a good
game for Ocala, making some pretty
stops and some good pegs in spite of
the wet ball. Medlin hauled in a hot
one from the bat of Francis that
ought to have netted a nice little
single for the St. Augustine lad. Leon
handled two redhot ones during the
game and secured for himself a place
in the baseball hall of fame. Fishei
and Taylor made a nice play in the
seventh when Fisher covered first for
Taylor to field a hot grounder off the
bat of Medlin.
. Leesburg drew first blood and for a
while it looked like they had the only
blood of the game. Porter led the
game off with a single down the third
base line. Gillespi sacrificed him to
sectnd and he scored on another hot
ore down third base that Kerlin start started
ed started on its way. Kerlin tried to make
second base but Rymer threw him out.
From then until the ninth Leesburg
did not threaten. They made one more
hit in the third but did not get beyond
Ocala was unable to do a thing with
the offerings of Scharding as long as
he used the sandpaper. It was the
sixth inning before the Wildcats were
credited with a single hit and then
they were unable to help the batter
on around the circuit but in the eighth
they took advantage of a couple of
free passes and an error to put across
the tying run. Bracken led off with
a base on balls. Wood sacrificed him
to second. Overstreet flew out to the
pitcher but Fisher hit a hot one to
Stewart on sV rt and Stewart let it go
through his It ;s to center field, scor scoring
ing scoring Bracken. Francis walked but
Taylor struck out and retired the side.
Leesburg was unlucky in the loss of
Osser from the game in the sixth.
Stewart took his place on short but it
was Stewart's error that lost the tying
run for the visitors. Osser sprained
his ankle and it is hoped that it will
be well at an early date for the lad
in a snappy "short-stopper."
In the ninth the Ocala fans nearly


had heai-t failure. Leesburg seemed (
certain to win in this round. Porter,
led off with a single. Gillespi hit toi

third. Stewart walked filling thes
bases with only one out. Very few
Ocala hearts had strictly normal act action
ion action for awhile but Fisher pulled out
of the hole m a noble manner. Medline
hit to Fisher who forced Gillespi at
the plate for the second out but the
bases were still full. Buckles came to
bat and the count on him was three
and two. Fisher took the ball to de deliver
liver deliver it and as he faced the plate all
three runners got going at full tilt.
The ball left Fisher's hands but it
never reached Eddie's ready mitt for
Buckles met it squarely on the nose
and it soared out to center field amid
the groans of the crowd, but Brown
got under it and the inning was over.
In the tenth Ocala put across the
winning run. Wood started the inn inning
ing inning off but flew out to short. Over Over-street
street Over-street kissed one in the face for two
bases in deep center. Fisher popped
out to second but Francis broke up the
game with a clean single through

"Go get It! Go get It!" This time
it was the wail of the little jeweler.

Another suggestion, still another.
Soon men began to radiate, each on a

Groups, en route to the picture show,
decided otherwise and stopped to
learn of the excitement. The crowd
thickened. Suddenly Fairchild looked
up sharply at the sound of a feminine
"What's the matter?"
"Harry Harkins got drowned." All
too willingly the news was dispersed.
Fairchild's eyes were searching now in
the half-light from the faint street
bulbs. Then they centered. It was
Anita Richmond, standing at the edire
of the crowd, questioning a miner,
while beside her was a thin, youthful
counterpart of a hard-faced father,
Maurice Rodaine. Just a moment of
queries, then the miner's hand pointed
to Fairchild as he turned toward her.
"It's his partner."
She moved forward then and Fair Fair-child

her hand. Fairchild gripped It ea eagerly.

Fairchild shrugged his shoulders.

"Who brought the news?"
Fairchild deliberately chose his
words :

A flush appeared on the other mun'i

The narrow-faced man obeyed her
command, and together they turned
out Into the street to avoid the con constantly
stantly constantly growing throng, and to veer
toward the picture show.
Carbide lights had begun to appear
along the street, as miners, summoned
by hurrying gossip mongers, came for forward
ward forward to assist in the search for the
missing man. High above the gen
eral conglomeration of voice could he
heard the cries of the instigator of
activities, Sam Herbenfelder, bemoan bemoaning
ing bemoaning the loss of his diamond, ninety per
cent of the cost of which remained
to be paid. Hastily he shot through
the crowd, organizing the bucket bri
gade and searching for news of the
Argonaut pump, which had not yet
arrived. Half-disgusted, Fairchild
turned and started up the hill, a few
miners, their carbide lamps swinging
beside them, following him.
Fairchild turned at the entrance of
the mine and waited for the first ot
the miners and the accompanying
gleam of his carbide. Then they went
within and to the shaft, the light
shining downward upon the oily, black
water below. Two objects floated
there, a broken piece of timber, torn
from the side of the shaft, where
someone evidently had grasped hastily
at It in an effort to stop a fall, and
a new, four-dented hat, gradually be becoming
coming becoming water-soaked and sinking
slowly beneath the surface. And then,
for the first time, fear clutched at
Fairchild's heart fear which hope
could not ignore.
"There's his hat." It was a miner
staring downward.
Fairchild had seen It, but he strove
to put aside the thought.
"True," he answered, "hut anyone

Fifty-Fifty for Progress

The big obvious need of this country to today
day today is psychological the disposition to go
ahead. We have here a vast ability to
produce, and a vast ability to consume
the products of industry. Potentially,
Supply and Demand are pretty well match matched.
ed. matched. The main trouble is that people don't
demand enough things to justify industry
in doing its most to produce.
The result is that a great amount of
energy is being spent on trying to get a
lion's share of the existing demand, and
not enough is spent cn trying to create
the demand so there will be enough to
keep everybody busy supplying it.
This brings about a period of keen com competition.

work harder and accept less in order to
overcome the sales resistance of a curtail curtailed

Demand is largely a created thing. The
actual needs of humaniiy are only a fract fraction
ion fraction of the general demand. It is always a
simple matter to gee along with less than

one would like to have. When the pub public

the demand for everything that is produc produced.
ed. produced. Advertising is a prime mover in creat creating
ing creating business. It arouses people out of
lethargy, makes them want to live more
fully, and to possess the means of living
more comfortably and more enjoyably.
When sales are hard to get, then most
people who have things for sale increase
their efforts to sell. The harder they try
to sell, the harder their competitors try to
sell. But no amount of selling effort in
the usual sense of the word-can create
demand; it can only take advantage of the
demand that has been otherwise created.
Advertising and Selling ought to be con considered
sidered considered as "fifty-fifty" in importance. Ad Advertising

Selling connects this demand with the
supply. Eace needs the other to make its
work complete.
