Under the new bank and currency

strict than formerly with reference to
the regulation of banks. Aa evidence
of this they are already advising: the
banks that overdrafts will not be coun
tenanced by the department. The de
partment ia cooperating with all the
states to have the state banks do the
same. While it has been the custom
to allow overdrafts the department has-)
always looked upon it as an unsound
method of banking. All banks through
out the country have instructions to
this effect and bank patrons who have

Betting on baseball demoralizes the
I great national pastime, and the Leader
is glad to notice that this pernicious
practice has been conspicuous here by
its absence during the present season.
We hope that the sport will be kept
locally clean until tba 1915 season is
Strife, enmity, trickery hatred be-
Itween town and town are the especial
fruits of betting on amatenr ball. It
will be well for the future of the East
End league which makes its bow to
the sport-loving public this year under
such favorable auspices should gam
bling be discouraged upon every dia
mond in the league. Otherwise the
success and welfare of small-town base
ball is sure to be endangered.
In the smaller towns, baseball is al-
imoat of necessity a Sunday amuse
ment, since the amateur players are
I otherwise employed during the week.
Freed from the taint of gambling it is

Mr. Bartholomew waa now satisfied.
He proceeded tu llifliten up like a
Mmliminloua deacon at a church fair,
He put shoots and twlata and hops and
slanta on lha ball and pitched lute a
major leaguer for the remainder of tho
game, but It waa everlastingly and
hopelessly too late. Mllton-rreewater
tried hard but In vain to pull off Its
'em-anyway atunt. It put over three
runs In the final canto and only need
ed one more to tie the score while
the hearts of local fans had Jumped
from their throata and wars dancing
and throbbing on the aide lines and
local players were going up like a
flock of army aeroplanes but at Inst
Farmer Ollarr whiffed lha third
man and all was over but the shout
Which reminds ua that Farmer
O'Harra heaved "rm across In steady
and conslatent. fashion throughout.
With faultless support behind him he
would have held the vtaltora to about
two runs. At times both teams played
ragged ball. The chief offenses of lha
visitors came In the first and Ihoae

encouraged by gilt-edged back-atop.
