Cincinnati, O., Sept. 2. One hundred
and fifteen minor league players .were
drafted by the 16 clubs of the two
major leagues when the National base
ball commission met here yesterday.
The National league secured G7, while
the American league got only 4S. The
Brooklyn Nationals secured 15 plaryers.
the New York Nationals -were the next
fortunate in the draw, as they secured
13 players: Philadelphia Nationals
came next with 12; Chicago Nationals
got 11 players, while the Chicago
Americans got 10. The others ranged
downward to a single player by De
troit, and this one is under investiga-
J tion, so that Detroit may come out
empty handed In the draw.
A little less than $125,000 was de
posited with secretary Bruce, of
j commlsion, to cover the drafts.
The commission held a long session
in which they placed a ban upon the
contemplated series betwen two all
star teams, from the American and
National leagues, that were scheduled
to make a tour of the country after the
world's championship ""series. No rea
sons for the ban were given.
All doubts that the world series
would take place were banished when
the commission notified president
Lynch, of the National' league, to ar
range his schedule in such a way as
to make the world's series as early as
are not to be underrated. The (iiants

publican side of the house, it is sig
nificant that Hitchcock is to appear
on the scene. What about this: Such
a majority "will prove to the Repub
lican leaders in the nation that it
was not a partisan mistake to admit
the territories. Will we have to believe
getting my mind off of my work. If.
When I go home. I have got to spend
tne time threshing out every problem,
recalling every annoyance and reviv
ing every anxiety of the day as 1
would, if I told my wife all about it,
why, I would be in a sanatorium with
nervous' prostration in six months.
When I go home I want to drop every
thing, and just rest until time to go
back to my office the next day."
L'ndoubtedly most other men feel the
same way, and In this way the major
ity of wives are entirely shut out of
their husband's business lives. They j
do not know how much their nusbands
make, what investments they have,
what problems are engaging their at
tention, what hopes or fears fill their
souls. When hubby is amiable and ge
nial, wife prognosticates from tne
symptoms that business is good, and
when he comes home at night grumpy
and cross, and kicks rhe cat and spanks
the baby "and quarrels with the dinner,
she surmises that business has been
bad; but she has no way of knowing,
for she is not in touch with the biggest
part of his life.
Of course it is every man's idea that
when he marries a woman and sets
her down in a comfortable home she will
stay "put." He pictures her as spending
ner days joyously anticipating his re-
Mum at 6 oclock from business, and
that she wants no livelier amusement of
an evening than just to sit up opposite
him and watch him read the paper.
Unhappily for the peace of the fireside,
things don't happen this way in real
life. A woman must have occupation
and diversion, as well as a man, and
when the wife realizes that her husband
does not share nis with her, she starts
out to find some for herself. She doesn't
sit up twiddling her thumbs and count
ing the hours until his return.
Become S'tranger.s to Eeeh Other.
Thus, it happens that the wife's in
terest and the husband's Interest, and
their pleasures and their amusements
become separated. They know different
sets of people one might almost say
tnat they move in different circles of
society and, in this way, eventually al
most become strangers to each other.
The man has his business. The wife
her study clubs and art clubs. He ab
sotbs himself In schemes for getting
rich. She absorbs herself in fashion
and buying clothes. He hates to go
out of an evening; so she and the other
women of her set, who are all situated
just as she is, entertain themselves by
giving hen luncheons and going to the
matinee, and the gulf widens and widens
between the two whose lives only touch
at two or tnree points.
As a proof of this, just notice the piti
ful paucity of conversation carried on
by the averasre married counle. They
have literally nothing to talk to each
other about', except the children and the
bills, and if they are rich nr.usu not to
be able to quarrel over the blll, and
have no children, they are reduced to si
lence and yawning in cae.i oth, fares.
Is it any wonder that, under such con
ditions, love languishes and dies of pure
starvation? Or need we marvel that the
marriage tie becomes so weak and frail
a bond that neither husband nor wife
has much compunction about breaking

become more money-making machines,
about which no woman could any more
