THE AWAKENING 07 OHINA.
China Is awakening from a deep
bleep of centuries. A devoted band
of patriots has been working for boma

BASEBALL IS A PUBLIO NECESSITY.
A police court Jury In Detroit hni
confirmed by Its verdict the contcn

work of public neccbslty. So far as
tho lower bench Is concerned, Sun

tinue in tho Whlto City of Michigan.
The Detroit decision Is complicated
also with a point on tho duty of tlio
laborer to earn his hire. Tho holiest,
hard-working members of a great
baseball team are dependent upon
their salaries. To remnln In such
physical trim that they may earn
their pay they must have the advan
