I have been contemplating a move
toward placing a colored club ' in
some league a good many years, but
owing to the national agreement 1
knew that the National league would
never consent; but as the. national
agreement is practically dead, 1 see
a chance to foster the club to a bet

Kd Smith writes .Ux Manager Haves,
of Davenport, that he made a bid for
the position as manager of the De
catur team next season but that he
was 20 minutes late. Smith savs he
has on the string a number of fast
players and that the town that se
cures his services win be the trainer
to that extent. Mnith states that if
he cannot get a berth as manager he
will do the next best thing. The
Davenport .Republican gives the. as
surance that Smith will not be on
the team of that city again. He
brok his pick there last season.

if expansion is proposed make it a
dozen clubs, making as a poiut that
with 10 cities divided into north and
south divisions, there would always
be an odd team, necessitating fre

thought to be well taken. Mr. Mun

Rather than see her appointed wed

though racked by burning fever and

dread typhoid, she bravely spoke the
words which made her the wife of
Herbert Addison Props.- of Daven
port. She is still very critically ill.
The . ceremony, so unusual in its
celebration, was performed at the
iome of Mrs. .1. J. Cox. 2414 Fifth

o'clock, though when the invita-
tions were sent out two weeks ago it
was planned to take place at tne
home of the bride's mother, Mrs. K.
F. Arcularius, in Hampton, at 8
o'clock last evening. Two hundred
invitations were issued and plans
.vere made for a gala occasion, thus
to .lave them blighted. At the time
:he invitations were issued the bride
was sick, but nothing serious was an
ticipated and the preparations for
Ihe nuptials went ahead. A short
time ago the invitations were recall

young people were uiaruieu ut tne

she would not be able to arise, the

physician's suggestion the ceremony
was carried out us it had been plan

The schools of the three cities are
interested, to the last individual, in
the coming lecture of Sir Robert
Rail, of the Cambridge observatory,
in Davenport a few weeks hence under
the auspices of the Tri-City Iress
club. Sir Robert Rail is recognized
as the foremost man living in lect
ures on astronomy. He puts science
in its most delightful aspect, and
makes his talk of the sun, moon and
stars, the planets and the comets and
the nebulae and the wonders and
mysteries of space, so absorbinglv
interesting that it is impossible not
to be fairly oblivious of everything
that is going on about one while he
listens to this entrancing speaker.

results of celestial photography.
which has told so many wonderful
stories in the past few years, will be
on hand to reinforce the talk on

it the foremost educational event of
this season in the tri-cities.
Sir Robert Rail is in the United
States but a few weeks. He delivers
a series of lectures at the Lowell in
stitute, Roston, and a limited number
of others in the larger cities as far
west as Minneapolis, but he stops but
