Chauucey M. Depew recently said
that one of the narrowest escapes of
his life was when he refused, some
30 years ago, to advance $10,000 to
help Alexander Graham Hell and his
father-in-law, the late Gardiner Hub
bard, to develop the newly invented
"talking telegraph." Mr. Depew was
then counsel for the Harlem railroad
and Mr. Hubbard a railway mail in
spector. "Had I accepted the proposi
tion," said Mr. Depew, "I would be
worth today about $30,000,000, or my
estate would, for with this vast
wealth 1 should have had no incentive
to healthy work. I should have dete

dead and forgotten."
Notorious for Frauds.
Springfield Kegister: The Roosevelt
administration has become vocifer
ously notorious for the gigantic and
unheard of frauds that have been per
petrated since its advent to power,
and also for the slight efforts made to
expose them and punish the offenders.
A few of the smaller fry in the post
office scandal have been indicted, and
n few have been tried, but not con
victed, as the evidence adduced by
government attorneys was not suffi
cient to convince a jury of their guilt.
It can be rightfully assumed that
these government attornej-s did not
exert themselves to produce evidence,
and did not seek to draw out from the
witnesses produced testimony neces
sary to convict.
Then the delay in investigating
these scandals has been a boon to
most of the greater offenders; for
that convenient law, the statute of
limitations, has run its course, and
the time had expired in which they
could be indicted. That the statute
of limitations covers a number of
these questions is denied by eminent
lawyers, but the republican attorney
general has decided that it does, and
there is no way of bringing the cul
prits to trial if the law officer of the
government refuses to act.
The postoftice frauds are not the
only ones that are causing sleepless
nights and bad half hours to many
political patriots. Evidence is accum
ulating that huge land frauds amount
ing in value to $40,000,000 have been
worked on the interior department,
although this scandal has not yet de
veloped into an exposure of the per
petrators of the fraud. But frauds in
the same department in connection
with the Indian lands are discovered,
and an investigation has been begun.
The indifference and delay exhibited
by the administration in exposing
what has already been discovered of
a fraudulent nature in the postoffice.
land, treasury and other departments
may be for the purpose of letting the
statute of limitations get in its work,
so that republican patriots shall be
able to escape the toils of the law.
Day by day it becomes more evi
dent that if the people of the United
States want honest and faithful pub
lic service they must take the govern
ment out of the hands of the republi
can rings which are now in control

Object Lesson in Ball Player' Life.
This talk about young men for the
life strenuous and old men for coun
sel and a place by the fireside doesn't
sound convincing wben the life his
tory 1 Denton T. Young is read.
lie is a baseball pitcher, and in all
his l ng career he never won more
laurels than in the season just closed.
He is a star. He is practically able to
fix his own salary. There isn't a base
ball organization in the country that
would not welcome him as. a . member.
He has a clear brain, mighty muscles,
skill, and he is as hard as nails.
He was pitching ball in fast com.
pany 14 years ago. He has pitched
ever since. If he lives he will make
new records next season, aud no man
can say when "Cy" Young will retire.
He doesn't even think of it.
In years Young is young. In the
activity and hard work that tend to
make age he is a patriarch. Other
ball players by the score have dropped
out of the procession. They eoudn't
stand the pace, which grows swifter
year by year. Many of them burned
the candle at both ends. It is easy to
become a "has been" in sport and bus
The historian says of "Cy" Young:
"He is a gentleman. He is never
guilty of rowdyism. He was never
drunk in his life. He hasn't found it
necessary to accumulate a stock of
bad habits in order to 'have a good
time.' His clean morals find a sequel
in a. strong body. He takes care of
himself in a sane manner, in summer
he plays ball with every ounce of en
ergy in his six feet of brawn. In win
ter he works on bis farm in Tuscara
was county, Ohio. Spring finds him
strong, able, fit.'
There is a fine moral in the life of
this ball player.
We can't all live on a farm or play
ball, but a good many of the young
fellows who sit in the grand stand
and the bleachers when Young hurls
the ball over the plate could find
health, contentment and the road to
success by studying the good things
in the life of the big pitcher.

DAILY SHORT STORY
A Game of Bluff.
Tracy Handyside, was bright enough
to take an excellent stnnd in his class
at college without any close applica
tion to his subjects. lie was not only
bright, but a favorite. His father was
rich and parsimonious. Tracy was
poor in his own right and a spend
thrift. Threat after threat came from
home that if the boy didn't mend his
ways by spending less money his col
lege course would come to a premature
end from lack of remittances. Tracy
took it into his head one afternoon to
drive four-in-hand. At his favorite
stable they got him up a team in the
best of style, aud Tracy, having taken
on a load of fellows and girls, started
at a brisk pace on the main road to
ward the city. The merriment was at
its height when a very unpretentious
vehicle was seen approaching drawn
by an equally unpretentious horse.
"Great heavens!" exclaimed Tracy.
"I do believe that's my father coming.
What'll I do?"
"Is his eyesight good?" asked one of
"Then ignore him."
Tho senior Handyside, seeing a party
of young people approaching, drew off
to the side of the road and waited for
them to pass. Unfortunately at the
moment of meeting a teamster must
needs get in Tracy's way, so that he
was obliged to draw rein. He did not
notice his father, although the old man
shouted In angered tones:
Finally the son turned his eyes in his

"Haven't the honor of his acquaint
ance. I'm sorry I can't take time to
prove your error, sir. but I've a party
aboard and got to make a twenty mile
tour and get back to dinner."
With this he gave the wheelers the
lash, tipped the leaders and left the
old gentleman aghast between his
son's effrontery and a terror lest his
eyesight had gone back on him. Tracy
drove out of sight, then called a con
sultation in which it was suggested
that his father would drive to college,
learn that his son was not there pos
sibly that he was driving four-in-hand
and Tracy's position would be some
f "I am sorry to mar the pleasure of
our drive," said Tracy, "but father
will go right past the stable, where
he'll likely stop to ask questions: then
to my room. I must coach the stable
men and be at my room when the gov
After discussion as to the means of
doing this, it was finally determined
that Tracy should take one of the lead
ers and gallop back by a roundabout
road and, by a quicker pace, forestall
his father. The horse was taken out
and divested of all harness except the
bridle. Tracy mounted and was soon
tearing back to college. Half an hour
later he dashed up to the stable from
which he had got his team, coached
the proprietors and in a few minutes
more was in his room behind a fortifi
cation of books.
Meanwhile the elder Handyside drove
into the town and, passing a stable,
drew rein and called for the owner.
"Did you let a four-in-hand this aft
ernoon?" he asked.
"Mr. Willard Stokes."
"Are you sure it wasn't Ilandyside?"
"Handyside? Don't know him."
The old gentleman was not convinc
ed. He had bad evidence before that
his son's creditors would stand by hlra
to the bitter end, and nothing would
satisfy him but to go straight to his
son's room. He tried the door and
found it locked. After a few vigorous
knocks he was about to turn away
when he heard a voice inside say:
"Get out! I'm boning for exam."
"Tracy," cried the astonished father,
"let me in!"
The latch flew back, and Tracy stood
at the door and folded his parent in
his arms. !: ...
"Why, father, what brings you here?
Nothing wrong at home, I trust."
"My boy," gasped the old man, sink
ing into a chair, "my eyesight is giving
