1 resolved to appeal -to Mr. Bar
rett's, better instincts and went to
his cabin. He was sitting out
side looking deeply dejected.
When he saw me he fell on his
knees again and caught hold of
my hands and begged me to for
give hyn. He said he was crazily
in love with me and wasn't re
sponsible. Then he asked me if
there would ever be any Tiope for
him. I told him that our club
was vowed to celibacy, but that I
would withdraw the warrant, and
he answered that Mr. Clay would
be back frpm the mainland in an
hour or two, ready to take him'
back a prisoner, and he was glad
I was forgiving. Then we both
heard Mr. Clay's boat come chug
ging across the water, and when
it landed I sawthat there was a
woman in it. Mr. Clay came up
to us and said that he had
brought back his wife to see the
island. Julia, who do you sup
pose she is? Agatha! It seems
that they were in love with each
other all last summer, and she
kept it from us because she was
afraid of being expelled from the'
club. And she told me that I had
hopelessly compromised myself
by staying on the island with Mr.
Barrett and that the only'vay
out of the dilemma would be to
niarry him. Jsn't it dreadful ?
"P. S.. Mr. Clay performed
the ceremony by moonlight,
When we get back to .Long Island
you must come and meet Richard
at once. M."

talk of , trades. Few deals are ex
pected, but those which are pulled
off are likely to be important and
result in changing the ownership
of star players.
Callahan of the White Sox
wants to strengthen his outfield,
and the Sox boss is also hot on the
trail of pitchers. Harry Lord and
Ping Bodie are two men who may
he used as swapping materia.
Neither man is longer popular
with the South Side fans and
have about outlived their useful
ness, on 35th st. Lord is a good
ballplayer, one of the best third
basemen, in the league, and he
should be a potent lever in prying
loose some good material from
another American League club.
Today's product from the ru
mor factory -is that am Craw
ford may hold down a job in the
Sox outfield next year. This was
caused by the'Nebraskan's declar
ation yesterday that he wants
more money to play next year
with Detroit. The Wahoo slug-1
ger has many a three-bagger let
in his system, and he and Navin
will get together on terms. Cal
lahan mustf look somewhere else
for outfield props.
Connie Mack, Jake Stahl and
Clark Griffith are satisfied with
their teams and will stand pat.
The managers of-the other five
clubs are willing to swap mosj
