HEAR A WORD WE SAY
LEANS LATEST STAR
The 150,000 club "Leans" are of
fering big money Tor information
on lean ball players. They have
secured some of the greatest
freaks on earth in the long, lank
and slender line. The latest ac
quisition is a champion—for "lean"
hut if he can play ball or not isn't
necessary. He is Yolen Y. Wil
liams, of Phoenix, B. C, who Is
known as the longest man on earth.
Y. Y. W. is 7 feet tall If an inch,
weighs 133 pounds and has a waist
measurement of 215. He has a face
like a baby and he likes highballs.
He Is 1 of tbe best known mining
experts on earth aud Is in the em
ploy of the Jay P. Graves peoplo.
WO bed ever manufactured fits
Yolen. He litis an awful time at
hotels and usually hires a suite of
rooms, with a bed In each, pulls the
beds together at the door and
sleeps all over them both.
The "Fats" and "Leans" will be
marred under the personal direc
tion of Fred H. Gaston, secretary,
«r rather "sign maker," for the
Enakops. The date for the game
is not set.

I "Astronomer Perclval Lowell, at

into canals that are 50 miles wide,
and then vegetation springs up.
He calls these streams canals, not
because they are artificial, but be
cause the Martian waterways run
in a straight line to the oceans in
stead of meandering, as ours do.
