East Moline, Oct. 8. Dear Editor:
Please excuse me. It is hard for me
to get you to understand already. You
know I am German. I work on a job
with a Irisher. I so do like this base
ball business. And Wagner! Ach, such
a great man. I love to spell his name
and read about his playing yet. His
father come from the same place iu
the Fader land where my grandfather
was born. Irisher say Wagner not is
German. He bring more fellows that
back him up yet. Ach, they make me
crazy. I stay away from work a whole
day to keep away from them. Irisher
bets me yet that our Honus is not a
Wagner, but he is a Murphy what
uses the Gorman name to catch the
German bugs in Pittsburg. Irisher
says Wagner once yet was a bartender
for his brother in Pittsburg before he
ball played. We have a bet. Do I
lose it yet? JULIUS D.

Rock Island. Oct. 8. Kindly inform
one of your readers what is meant by
a steerer. F. T. 15.
He is a specimen of the human fam
ily usually found at the. race track on
the outskirts of a gambling room. Mis
lay is to scent the softs who are seek
ing the easy way to pad their cush
roll and pilot them to the den of the
nicker. If the geek is hipped to the
turn there are times when he is sent
the lead pipe route. This is not al
ways necessary, as he ordinarily falls
for the cooked craps or the stacked
deck. The steerer is paid off after the
Dunne Is l.iiudt-il.
We ate authorized to announce the
marriage of Duane and Geraldine. It
was a quiet affair, only a few of the
insido circle having been invited. the
young folks having agreed to cut the
big fuss from the start of their new
life. There was a dinner after the

II)' Sophronin Mummer.
Dear Miss Slammer: 1 road of the
wonderful success you had in the case
of Alfreida M. I happen to be a young
man. I am very much attached to a
young lady and hope some day to pro
pose marriage. We went to parties to
gether and seem suited to each other.
The other night I invited her to a
play. When I called for her at her
home mother was dressed to go along.
I told the girl I had secured only two
seats, but mother said that made no
difference I could get another; that
she wanted to know what kind of plays
her daughter was attending. I do not
object to the company of her mother,
but the added expense is too great fur
one on a small salary. "What 'would
you advise me to do? DUVAL M. ;
Yours is a delicate case. You love
the girl and you don't'dislike the moth
er. Mot iter, of course, has a right to
chaperono her daughter, but it would
be well for you to have a heart to
heart with her, or you and your belov
ed might get together and have an
understanding that hereafter you will
not patronize the theater; that it does
not harmonize with your ideals. Go in
for free church lectures and the lik.
You will find that mother will suddenly
discover that she has duties that will
keep her home o' nights.

' HrnnwiNry, That Illni. ;
This world is full of "wisu.'.oncs;
In every walk of life
We find the man who knows it all ',
In peace as well as strife., ' ' ' '
Ho talks about the fighting game, '
How the battle will be won,
And how an airship should be sailed,
How races should be run.
He tells just how to swim and dive,
And how to row a boat.
And how to catch the finest fish,
And how a man may float.
He knows just how to roller skate,
And how to skate on ice;
At coasting he's the "candy kid;"
learned sailing in a trice.
At pool he is a wizard,
At billiards he's his best,
At dice he never has been stuck,
And poker's but a jest.
At tennis he's a champion,
At handball he's a brick.
At golf he's the best, he says,
That ever swung a stick.
At cricket he's a live one,
At polo he's a beaut.
At lacrosse he's a wonder.
At football he's astute.
At all these games and pastimes
Perhaps he leads ns all;
But there's one game he doesn't know.
And that's good, old baseball.
So let him brag of pingpong,
Of tennis let him boast.
Arid while he's talking we will tack
The bunting to our post.
Who is this wise gazabo
This broken down old sport?
His name we shall not mention,
But he lives in Davenport.
