BITS OF SPORT'
Horace Fogel's funniest crack
came yesterday when he said he
controlled the majority stock of
"the Phillies and there was no in
tention of selling the team. This
was in denial of a report from
New York that Fogel was trying
to huy the club. Horace also
said he would get Tom Lynches
goat at the league meeting Tues
day. At the meeting Tuesday Hor
ace will spie'l a little, Lynch will
rip off some 'oratory, someone
will spill the 'whitewash bucket
over the whole affair and the pub
lic -will never get wise to the rot
tenness of the National League.
Funny that Qharles Murphy,
well-known West Side- canner,
should get sick on eve of National
League meeting.
Bill'Brennan, National League
umpire, acussed by Fogel of
everything in calendar of baseball
crookedness, blew in for today's
football game. Bjjl added to the
merriment by saying he would
sue Fogel for libel in the civil
courts after the league was
through with Horace. Bill says
his reputation is "darkeped" and
whitewash will not brighten it
any.
Arrangements are practically
complete fpr another battle be
tween Charley White "and Pal
Moore ateKnosha. A date has
not been selected.
Oak Park won the undisputed
prep school championship of the
West yesterday by thumping
Lake Forest 40 to 0. The open- i
field running of Barrett and line
plunging of Carolan demoralized
Lake Forest defense.
Bill Hogan, outfielder, and
Kutina, first baseman, liave been
sent to the minors by St. Louis
Browns.
ANDY HAS A NEW IDEA
New- York, Nov. 23. Andy
Carnegie is going to quit building
libraries that no one will 'read.
The people are not grateful
enough.
Andy is now going into the
business of providing for our
aged and dependent ex-presidents,
and the widows Of the
same,.with a special exception in
the case of Theodore Roosevelt.
Not that Andy is going to build
a home for aged, dependent and
infirm ex-presidents. He is
more generous than that. He is
going tQ give them $25,000 a year
easy money to play with.
Taft will be eligible to this pen
sion when he steps out of the
White House. Roosevelt will not,
because of the aforementioned ex
ception. Mrs. Benjamin Harrison x
will be eligible, but Mrs. Grover
Cleveland will not because of her
approaching marriage.
A lady of advanced age re
quired the services of an errand
boy and advertised: "Youth
wanted."
One of her dearest friends sent
her by the next mail a bottle of
Blank's celebrated wrinEle-filler
and skin-tightener, a pot of fairy
blcfom, a set of false teeth,a flaxen
wig and a cake of iodine soap.
