up, despite the hundred odd
points between them.
Club owners, managers, play
erSj umpires and scouts say, "It
looks like Boston for the flag."
The team has a good lead and
plays a consistent game. The
men are lo3ral to Stahl ,and their
playing proves it. The outfield is
.the greatest in baseball, and the
infield is. above the average.
Wood, the pitching staY, would
bring $25,000 on the block today.
The other pitchers should win a
majority of their games. And if
the team wins a majority of the
remaining games it means a pen
nant. Boston fans fear the, team will
not "stand up" on the road.
Stahl's men have not been as

don't bet that way. Leaving out
Washington for like Cleveland,
the Senators disappoint when the
most is expected; remmeber that
not so very far behind is the al

congressional enactment, found
when she arrived that Congress
created a perfectly good Chil
dren's Bureau, but had failed to
appropriate any money for it, so
Miss Lathrop has gone away
It is assumed by the optimistic
that Congress will put some
money to the credit of this bureau
when the legislative, executive
and judicial appropriation bill is
finally passed. This bill fell by
the wayside and an emergency
measure had to be passed at the
beginning of July to provide cur
rent salaries for government em

YOUR EYES DECEIVE YOU.
This is an illusion of subdivid
ed space. "D" seems higher than
it is broad, while "E" seems
broader than it is high. They are
really squares, exactly alike.
Little Girl Your Uncle Harry
.seems awful young to be a. doctor.
Little Boy Yes. He isn't a real
growed-up doctor. I expect he's
only 'tendin' to children yet, so's
to fret some practice.
