The directors of the Hock Island
Baseball association held a meeting
last evening at which the local situ
ation was gone over with considera
ble thoroughness. The sentiment
prevailed generally that the team as
a whole has not of late been doing
the work tf which it is capable and
the feeling finally crystallized into a
communication that will be handed
to each of the Rock Island players.
As it deals with the team in a gen
eral way, all the members will be fa
vored with a copy, regardless of
whether it applies or not. In fact,
it was made clear at the meeting that
there is no dissatisfaction with the
work of some of the men and care
was taken t o word the letter so that
those with a clear conscience could
take no offense.
No Mora I.onflna.
Jn substance the missive states
that while there has been no reason
to criticise the work of the team up
till u couple of weeks ago. since that
time it is felt that certain of the
members have not been doing their
best to win games. It goes on. fur
ther to state that the men are paid
to play ball under any and all cir
eumstanees and that' in future no
loafing wil be countenanced.
The association also discussed
baseball for another year, and the
sentiment wa unanimous in favor of
arranging to xtaj- on the baseball
map, even, though it will be necessary
to provide another park on account
of the sale of the site of the present
Shortstop Rrr Stern!.
The Hock Island management has
signed I.arr, the in fielder who 1ms
been with Decatur and Bloomington
since the beginning of the season.
He came here with the latter team
and was released in this city. He
will be played at short for the pres
ent so that Graham need not be tak
en out of the box.
A Few Baseball "Don't. "
Don't rebuke a player during the
game. People can discuss the merits
and demerits of players without
howling across the field.
Don't try to run the game from the
grand stand or bleachers. Let the
manager do that.
Don't groan and yell to a batter
something about not coming within
a mile of it when he misses a ball. If
there is one thing a ball player wants
to do it is to hit the ball. His pro
fessional reputation depends upon it
regardless of his disposition or inten
Don't yell to a home player to "hit
it out" when he is attempting to sac
rifice. He is acting under orders and
would much rather take his chances
on a hard hit.
Don't exclaim derisively when a
home player makes an error. If he
is a consistent player he feels as bad
ly about it as you do. If he docs not
care, cat calls will not help matters.
Don't cry to the manager "take
him out" when a home pitcher is get
ting hit. Let the manager run the

J The. Decatur field is in the fair

It is natural to criticise misplays

do. Players are hired to do the best

Onoto Watanna, author of "A Jap
anese Nightingale." the dramatic
rights to which have been secured by
Klaw Xs Erlanger, was bo in in Naga
saki, Japan, 21! years ago. She. is,
perhaps, the youngest novelist in the
world, her third hook having just
been purchased prior to its writing
by the Harpers. Miss Watanna is of
Anglo-Japanese origin. Her father
was an English consul who married
a Japanese woman. The marriage
was not, however, of that variety
which furnishes the main motive in
"A Japanese Nightingale." for while
Jack Bigelow married Yuki in Japan
ese fashion. Miss Watanna's father
married his native wife after the
The early childhood and youth of
the novelist were spent in Japan, but
when 'Onoto Watanna was 15 years
old her father was transferred to
Canada. Miss Watanna at this time,
however, became a member of the
staff of a West Indian daily newspa
per and went to Kingston, Jamaica,
to report the debates of the legisla
tive assembly. She spent the greater
part of a year in. the West Indies.
She was then persuaded to go the
United States in the hope of a liter
ary career. At the age of Irt she be
gan to write for magazines published
in Chicago. A number of years were
spent i by the young girl in Chicago,
which she had heard was America's
greatest city. Here Miss Watanna
found instant appreciation and speed
ily became a figure in literary and
social life., .
All this time -Miss Watanna was
writing stories gathered from her
knowledge of Japanese life. She de
veloped a distinct dialect eight years
ago which other writers have since
endeavored to copy. She is thus the
pioneer in the field of Japanese dia
lect writing in English. In this con
nection William Dean Howrlls, in a
recent speech, referred to Miss Wa
tanna, who was not present, as "a
power that must be reckoned with
in American letters."
With an Oriental love for color
added to feminine admiration of
dress, the slendor purse of the young
Eurasian was not always adequate
for her purposes. When someone
whispered to her that Chicago was
not America's chief city, but New
York, she took up her resilience in
the latter place.
She had observed that many girls
went into tall office buildings where
they earned money pounding little
machines. She decided that she
woidd do likewise. So she applied
to a New York banker for a posi
tion. She was given some letters to
copy. When she turned them in her
employer asked in amazement:
"What's the matter with these?
There are no capitals in them."
"The capital letter is broken." re

After that Miss Watanna lived

tempted to earn money in an office
building. As her vogue increased
she was able to enter Columbia col
lege for a time.
Since that time Miss Watanna has
lived in New York, devoting herself
to her literary work exclusively. In
private life she is Mrs. Bertrand
Whitcomb Babcock, having married
the writer of that mime. Many of
her stories have been translated into
Japanese and circulate in the land of
her birth. Japan has claimed Onoto
