PoBt Mortem Analysis of Dav
enport Club's Performance
tavenport the fourth team in the
standing at the close of the Three-I
league season, was picked aa the win
ner of the flag last winter and spring.
During the first two months the team
appeared to be all that was claimed
for it, but after that it failed to be a
serious contender for first place. With
out doubt the sale of Catcher Cole
man was a big factor In checking the
club's fine work, and It is very prob
able that if Dan O'Leary had been able
to step into the breach when big Rob
ert left, the conteam would have con
tinued being a contender. However,
O'Leary was developing Peters, and
In taking his chance on making a
catcher out of the big boy, he sacrificed
his chances for the pennant
Davenport took the lead on April

Into second place again: On the eighth
and ninth of May it was on top again,
only to slip back into second place
once more. From May 14 until July
3 the team held first place and the
flglt seemed between Davenport and
Di-huque. Then the team began to slip
and the rest of the season it was fight
ing for a first division berth. By fin
ishing strong at home the team nosed
out Decatur for fourth place.
At home the Blue Sox did almost as
well as Quincy'dld on its own grounds,
v inning 43 end losing 25, but on the
road the showing was weak, as only
5 games out of 67 were won. Up to
Jjne 1 the team won 21 and lost 14.
During June its record was 12-14, d v
lng July 13 19, during August 1617,
end during September 6-3. The rec
onl ot the team's work against each
of the other seven teams at home and

Decatur was a tough customer at
Davenport, but could not get an even
break on its own ground. Dubuque
v as unbeatable to the Blue Sox at
Dubuque, ' while every trip to Dan
ville and Peoria was disastrous. Quin
y and Springfield managed to get
tlie odd game when Davenport called
there, but neither of these two teams
could make any Fhowing at Davenport.
Danville and Peoria cleaned up on
;jop"port at home, and when these
two teams visited Davenport the Blue
Sox returned the compliment. The
t"atn played less games than any c'.ub
in the loague, and only by winning the
last game did it make the first division
and finish above the .500 mark.

Indianapolis Returns Sales Pa

Peoria, El., Sept 15. To top off
all the troubles which have beset the
Peoria baseball club during the sea
son ended last Sunday when word
was received here yesterday by Presi
dent Meidroth that Max Flack would
.e unahi- to play aga'.-i this season
and that because of his mor condi
tion Indianapolis had recalled all ne
gotiations for his purchase at $1,250.
' According to a letter received from
the offices of the Indianapolis club
Flack's physician had ordered him to
stay out of the game for the remain
tier of the season and the little gard
ener refused to report to Indianapolis.
Manager Kelly of the Indianapolis
team jumped into St Louis and ex
amined into the Flack case, but was
unable to reach an agreement with
the former Peoria player, who was
determined to follow his physician's
orders. In -consequence the sales
papers held by the Indianapolis club
have been returned and the Peoria
Amusement company is Just $1,250
poorer than had been figured upon at
the close of the season.
With the return of the sales papers
Indianapolis intimated they would like
first chance to purchase Flack next
spring should he return to the game
in anything like the form he displayed
oV.ring the 1913 playing season. In
event of the fulfillment of this possi
bility, the Peoria club would be no
loser by the deal and might perhaps
benefit by holding out for a stronger

Plenty of Foreign Countries Where
You May Find Them.
Although foreign countries do not
openly, advertise their readiness to do
business with those who aspire to affix
a handle to their names, the fact Is
generally recognized tbnt a consider
able traffic In titles Is carried on.
The tiny republic of San Marino,
which does a roaring trade In titles of
nobility at fixed rates, devotes a great
part of the profits to the maintenance
of its foundling and orphan asylum.
It w'I make you and all your heirs or
only your male heirs, If such is your
desire, a duke for 55,000 or an earl for
An Idea of the traffic done In titles
may be gathered from the fact that a
German firm trading in Sweden sends
out ' a circular marked "Private and
confidential" offering to 6ecure any or
ders and decorations required. .
The orders of St George vary In
price in different countries. In Sicily
It costs $375 and in Bavaria more than
twice as much, but yon may become a
Knight of Montenegro for as little
The king of Greece dses rather a
prosperous business with the Order of
the Redeemer, which can be had for
$250. while Servia bestows the Order
of Takova for a like sum. Tho Prince
of Monaco has for disposal the Order
of the Star, for which be asks $175, and
for $50 less one can secure the Order
of tbe Sun of Nasr-eia-din from the
shah of Persia.
Although titles cannot be bartered in
England, it Is, of course, an open se
cret that a generous contribution to
political funds often paves the way to
a place in the peerage. Apropos of
this, it Is Interesting to note the fact
that Franz Kossuth, the son of the fa
mous patriot charged the Hungarian
government with receiving no less than
$1,450,000 by selling baronet titles.
Another phase of this traffic in titles
Is revealed by carefully worded adver
tisements which have appeared in Lon
don papers from time to time, offering
for sale the titles of impoverished no
ble families of France. It is not so long
ago since three titles, two of which
were French one a count and the oth
er a marquis respectively and one of
an Austrian prince, were put up for
sale in London, the prices ranging
from $200,000 to $500.000. London
When You Realize That Is What Worry
la You Have It Mastered.
Concentrated thought Is virtually Ir
resistible. All the vast edifice of mod
ern science and Industry is obviously
the product of thought, much of it of
our own time and observation. Tbe
birth of an idea In the human mind is
clearly the one and only dawn of em
pires and revolutions, of engines, phi
losophies, trade routes, civilization.
To class worry nnder tbe bead of
thinking, therefore, seems a glaring
sacrilege. Yet worry Is thought, for
all that diseased, impure, adulterated,
thought It means an admixture of
emotion, of tbe worst of all emotions
fear Into one's thinking. Instead of
concentrated, clear, serene thinking
on the pgpblem in band, worry is
thinking muddled black with fear. It
is aborit as helpful as clapping the
brakes upon wheels toiling uphill. -
Yet all tbe world Is laboring under
that Egyptian heaviness of the wheels,
and aimost every spirit is a spirit in
the dark prison of fear. But once we
grasp this truth clearly, once we con
vince ourselves that we can rid our
thought of emotionalism, of fear, the
day of our deliverance is at band. And
the substitution of encouraging, healthy
thought of new channels among the
worn ruts, Is a powerful aid.
There may be failures and back
alidings. as is customary in all mortal
effort and human endeavor. But fear
is weakened like a choking thing, and
more and more clear and unimpeded
becomes our thinking, for we realize
at last, once for olL that where' thluk
Ing cannot help ns fear certainly will
not And then we have worry by the

Chicago, Sept 15. Every now and

They Court Death.
Steeplejacks are proverbially reck
lessor apparently so in their actions
when engaged on their dangerous
work. A laborer who was attached to
one of these experts used commonly to
take a midday nap wherever he might
happen to be situated. His mates
commonly found blm on tbe top of a
steeple or chimney stretched full
length upon a single board, bis arms
dangling over Its sides, fast asleep, A
single lurch would have meant a fall
of a couple of hundred feet and there
fore certain death, yet be treated this
possibility with tbe utmost Indifference.
