At the meeting of the National
Association of Minor leagues in
Milwaukee, G W. Murphy real
izing his mistake asked Manager
Clark of Milwaukee if he would
take money and two or three
players for Watson. Clark would
not.
Manager Jim Callahan p,f the
White Sox offered $5,000 ior
Watson, withoutresult. ,The-Sox
bpss -has not given Up hope, how
ever, and is still making offers to
Clark for Watson.
Watson is an inch shy of six
feet and scales 18Q pounds. He is
a blonde but not of the dizzy

It bores the Misses and the
Ma'ams,
The gayest and sedatest,
With dread, we always view it.
And yet it always HAS been done
And so, of course, we do it!
