Pittsburg's Salary Lift Reported to Be Around $75,000, Whila Philadelphia Athletics' . Pay List Is Said to Be $35,000.. : , The statement recently that a salary of but $4,500 was btlng paid annually to Johnny Kllng, the Chicago Nation als', star catcher, cume as a big sur prise to the baseball fans. It was pop ularly believed that the clever' back stop was drawing a much larger sti pend for his work. - During a recent fanfest among . the Pittsburg players Borne interesting facts came out con cerning baseball salaries In general ' . Wagner's salary, for example, is a matter of guesswork purely, to all ex cept Pittsburg club officials,' the Fly ing Dutchman and possibly one or two others, who- have been told .in strict confidence. He . is 1 supposed to be nil iwlM la th" hi ft host onlnrlarf man in baseball, but the wages he Is paid 'for clouting, base running and spreading his giant frame over several acres of territory for the Pirates has undoubtedly , been overestimated by many persons who profess to have in side Information on the subject It has been put as high as $3,000 a year by some gnessers, and very few per sons think be is getting less than $10,000. . One of the few, however, is a prominent member of the Pittsburg club. ; . ' ' " ' "I do not say that Bonus Isn't worth that price. lie is worth even more, considering bis playing ability and his value to the club from a . box office point of. view. But baseball is a business proposition, and $10,000 is an enormous amount to give to any player for a few, months' work. . They will have to show me before they can con vince me that Ilonus is drawing that much. He may be getting it, but he Is not getting more." Several of the players suggested that the big Teuton ought to be getting a percentage of the gate receipts. Then the salary subject took a wide range, and the same player who is quoted above declared that In his opinion every member of the Pirates who fig ured to any extent in the winning of the National league pennant and the world's championship received an ad vance In salary for this year. He be lieved that "Dots" Miller's contract calls for more than twice as much as he received last year and that all the regnlar players were advanced. , "It aeems to be the policy of the club," he said, "to lend substantial en couragement to brains, ability and willingness, and it is to that fact com bined with the very able leadership of Fred Clarke, that yon can credit that ideal club spirit that prevails among the Buccaneers. I'll venture to say that the Pittsburg club paid out $73, 000 in salaries last summer and that no other club paid as much. I have been told, and I believe it to be true, that the salary list of the Philadelphia Americans for the season of 1909 amounted to only $33,000, making a difference of $40,000 in the money paid out to players by two major league clubs, now , Connie Mack can pay such small salaries and manage to keep his club up in the race la some tbifig l cannot understand."

Pirates are much larger. Chance, they 'understand, signed a three year contract as manager of the team at a figure under $8,000, and Ellng and Brown are the only mem bers of the team1 receiving anything like $5,000. Reulbach is said to be .pitching for $3,500. Lajole is said to have received $9,000 a year from Cleveland, of . which. $2,000 was for managing the club. Many other star plavcrs were mentioned and their real and paper salaries given. . Of course It is possible that the Pi rate players who gave the information on the subject may be mistaken, but It must be admitted that they are in a position to learn the actual facts bet ter than the newspapers. It was gen erally agreed among them that the public shas an erroneous Idea about fancy salaries paid to players. Connie Mack, even in war days, Is said to have averaged only $3,000 to his play ers. ; ' '-: ".' While the public may be wrong In its beliefs, the fact remains that any player which delivers the goods in fast company gets enough money for it to keep the wolf from the door during the winter, and most of them earn several times as much as they could take down in any other trade or occu pation for which they are fitted. coins Kl ' F CURE THE WONDER WORKER .

He ought to have learned logical processes of thought and what to do with the information. which he obtains. ; ?v It is usually necessary for a man who wishes to enter national pol itics to GO INTO, STATE POLITICS FIRST unless an unusual opportunity is offered, and even this often brings the danger of get ting into a rut from which it is hard to escape. Of course if a chance is given to go to Washington as private secretary to some prominent politician it affords a valuable insight intp the processes of government OFTEN A YOUNQ MAN DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT ENTERING POLITICS. HE SHOULD FIR8T LEARN ALL ABOUT THE POLITICAL ORGANIZATION OF HIS OWN COMMUNITY ANty IN WHAT SUBDIVISION HE LIVES. HE SHOULD ; LEARN WHT ARE THE PARTY LEADERS IN HIS DISTRICT AND 8H0ULD MAKE THEIR ACQUAINTANCE, FIR8T OF ALL THAT OF HIS ELECTION DISTRICT, CAPTAIN. AFTER THIS HE 8HOULD 8TUDY THE CHAR ACTER OF THE MEN AND SEE WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE HIS PARTY ARE PUTTING INTO THE LOCAL OFFICES. THEN HE SHOULD GET TO KNOW THE OTHER YOUNG MEN OF HI8 DIS TRICT WITHOUT DISTINCTION AS TO WHETHER THEY ARE IN HI8 OWN CLA88 OF LIFE OR NOT. FROM THEN ON HIS CAREER WOULD DEVELOP ACCORDING TO HIS ABILITY, v The most important thing for a college man who intends to enter politics to acquire is a COMPLETE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HISTORY OF HIS OWN COUNTRY. This does not mean sim ply an acquaintance with the "drum, and trumpet history," as Green calls it, but a THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF THE POLIT ICAL HISTORY of the United States. In addition to this I would advise the STUDY OF MODERN LANGUAGES, especially of topanish. - -v'-v'1. v''; v.- ': '': ".' y' " ' Andrew jfiaLrri yICK for your wife the girl who takes care of her mother.
