Wallace Cumminsrs UBed to drive
the old stage which ran between j
Bridgton and Portland. One day Wal
lace had as a passenger out of Port
land a young city chap or dude, as
Wallace called him. The scenery
along the stage route was both beau
tiful and diversified; the young man
was much Interested, and as he sat
on the box, or post of honor, beside
Wallace literally plied him with ques
tions as to what - mountain that was
and what river this was. etc.
The old driver, who detested this
6ort of interrogation, stood it as long
as he could. Finally he blurted out:
"Say, stranger, if you'll mind your
business I'll mind mine."
Thus snubbed, the young man re
lapsed into silence.
They had driven about ten miles
farther when they came to a long hill,
where the driver was obliged to apply
the brake. As he shoved his foot to

the mail bag, which always lay there,
was gone. Evidently it had dropped
Off along the road.
Wallace stopped his horses; then,
breaking the long silence, he said:
"Say, stranger, did you see that mail
bag slide off?"
"Yes, I did; some ten miles back,"
calmly remarked the young man.
"Well, why In thunder didn't you
tell me?" gasped the astonished
The "dude" looked him squarely In
the eye for a moment, and then ne

THEIR YEARS ARE WASTED
Extravagant Habits Hob Ball Players
. of Benefit of Big; Salaries.
The worst fault of the baseball busi
ness is that it teaches young men- the
habit of extravagance and high living,
writes Jimmy Ryan, once one of the
best. Naturally the players on each
great team are lauded as heroes by
their admirers; the newspapers are full
of accounts of their doings; they meet
Jiundreds of "good fellows", who want
xnem to arm, smoxe or carouse wun
them. They meet "sports" of wealth
and they try to Imitate these "sports."
They spend their money for rich
clothes, wines, costly cigars and dia
monds, and usually when they are sud
denly confronted with a ten days' no
tice of release the diamonds are about
all that they have left to show for the
earnings of years. The old-timers were
more reckless in this regard than the
new generation of ball players, but
there are enough youngsters now
To me it is a sad commentary on the
game to see the great stars of other
days toiling as day laborers. The
greatest pitcher of them all is digging
ditches in Indianapolis; perhaps the
greatest infielder the world has known
is clerking in a -cigar store at $12 a
week. I have jseen him spend $300 In
one night I find them in cheap sa
loons, on police forces, ' in city jobs.
but few in any established business
and still fewer accumulating wealth.
They wasted their years ef time on
the ball field and wasted the money
that they earned.
At the end of a baseball career the
player is usually left stranded In the
business world. He gains a false idea
of his own Importance from the cheers
of the crowd and the crowd forgets
him almost as soon as he gets out of
his uniform. He depends upon some
of his powerful "friends" to get him a
position when he gets through. The
end usually 'comes with startling sud
denness. The friends that he relied
upon are not so friendly to a back
number as to a brilliant player. He
drifts to thejninors, drops out of sight,
and seldom rises again.
