dent nrti.ee View.
Apropos of the meeting to be held in
Rock Island next Monday evening to con
sider the proposition to put a club in
Rck Island, or ra'her a twin-city club,
for the I. I. league the coming season.
President McKee, of the league, writes.
'it now stands Reck Inland or Burling
ton for the eighth club. If Rjck Wand
wants a meaiberihlp in the I. I. league
this is the chance cf her lifetime. I have
jnst returned from Aurora and go there
again tomorrow eve-ing for their final
meeting. If the showing made by Rock
Island meets my approval upon arrival
Monday evening aci an investigation has
been had, I will be pleased to give her the
franchise, which vould make the north
half stand, Rockford, Aurora, Joliet
and Rxk Island. If Burlington, it will
stand Rockford, Aurora, Joliet and Bur
lington for the nortia bait. The south half
is settled upon viz.; Peoria, Springfield,
Jacksonville and Q lincy. In either caie
regard it as the test with Rock Island
and not Burlington,! think it a shade the
better, while Burlington is better for
Quincy, being nearer. Rock Island is
better for Peoria and the other three
northern clubs. Tbe longest jump is 113
miles viz. Joliet to Peoria, all daylight
traveling, no sleepit g cars and all good
live towns, and with a salary limit of
$750 per month, strictly adhered to, all
ought to do well. Rockford maintains
its club from an advertising standpoint.
it is go trouble to raise money here for a
base ball club and has not been for tbe
last 25 years, and tt ere is noi a better
town it tbe United States than this ene
right here, and it all omes from tbe ad
vertising she has had."
The Peoria Transc ipt, speaking of the
proposed league, say.-:
The IUinois-Iowa leagje ia better than
ever bef re. It ia compact, wiih a salary
limit of $750 a moniL. There is Joliet.
Rockford. Rack Island and Burlington
on the north. Spring field. Jacksonville,
Q iincy and Peoria ot tbe south. Q lincy
is tbe town farthest f .-om Pearia ami it is
easily to be seen that mileage will not eat
up all the receipts. This league, though
small, is a stayer. Th- great difrl :ulty is
to find someone here to take hold of the
club. It would be no trouble to raise
quite a snug little sure from tbe admirers
of tbe game, for there are anv number

A strange story reaches me from one ot
the Inns of Court. A sot of chambers bad
been vacant for some time; indeed, they ,
had only been tenanted for three week"?
durinsi the last six years. The rent was re-!
markably moderate and the rooms were '
comfortable. Accordingly a young barristf i
took tliem for a month or ho. He never
inquired why it was that tbey had been so
lontt empty, nor bad he any idea that thev
were supposed to be haunted. He had
not, however, been in possession many day
before he announced his determination tc
quit the rooms, thoush he had spent a cool
deal of money in doins them up and fur
His friends naturally asked for an expla
nation, and he confessed that he had seen
a ghost, or rather a collection of ghosts,
for every nis;ht, he said, the door opened til
its own accord and in walked three men
and a woman, dressed in last century cos
tunus. They sat down at the table and
commenced to talk and to drink. Eventu
ally tbe talk g..t louder and a violent
quarrel broke out: in the course of this the
woman was stabbed, after which catas
trophe the ghosts disappeared. Such is
the gho-t story, and naturally enou,'u it U

It seems as if success were a talent in it
self, dependent, it is true, on other quali
ties in a greater or less degtte. but having,
nevertheless, a separate and tii.-tinct indi
viduality. Some people quite wrongfully
call this quality "luck;' it is quite unjust,
however, for although of ccmrse in many
Instances a fortuitous chain of circum
stances may make or mar a man, as a rule
the successful person generally owes his or
her position to some intrinsic merit to the
talent, in short, of "getting on."
It is not cleverness only; it is certainly
not genius; it is not even perseverance,
necessary as that quality may be. although
any or all of these properties may be found
in a successful man or woman. It is per
haps the happy faculty of seizing the right
moment, of striking when the iron is hot,
or that well known attribute which is Ken
erally ascribed to the English, but which
Americans certainly have thrir full share
of, the courage that "does not know when
it is beaten." .
However we may try to discover its com
ponent parts, this subtle quality defies
analysis and can never be either taught oi
learned, and we try in vain to solve the
mystery of why some people succeed in
everything they undertake and others fail.

Suits ThMt Some Women Tiring.
A prominent railroad lawyer, most of
whose time is spent in defending his client
against negligence actions, said the other
day that the suits brought by women were
the most difficult to coiks with. If a man
loses a leg or an arm in an accident, the j
damages can be estimated with a tolerable t
degree of accuracy. Ten thousand dollars.

A collision will occur and apparently no
body will be injured, and months later a
woman will sue. To all appearances she
will be perfect in all her members, but her
lawyer will significantly hint at spinal dif
ficulties, that bete noire of the railroad BXr
torney. She will go upon the witness
aland and tell of her aches and pains, and
her friends will bear witness how cheerful
and sprightly sbe was before the casualty,
and how downhearted and distrait she has
been since, and a sympathetic jury will be
very generous with the corporation's money
and vote it away by the thousands to the

Cost of Chinamen's Hats.
Chinamen's hats merely rest on the top
of the bead and are kept in place by a cord
or band beneath the chin. The cost varies
indefinitely. The hat proper ranges from
$1 to $4; the fringe from 23 cents to 43; the
peacock's feather from 30 cents to $2, and
the button from 50 cents to?3,0OO. The
high priced buttons are cut from rubies,
carbuncles and garnets, and set in hand
some cages of solid gold. L,i Hung Chang,

English Speaker Increasing.
Of the 102.00ti.000 people, or thereabout,
who are estimated to have been using seven
languages in the year 1S01, the English
speakers were less than 13 per cent., while
the Spanish were 16. the Germans 18.4, the
Russians 18.9 and the French 19.6. This
aggrecate population has now grown to
400,000,000, of which the English speaking
people number close upon 123,000.000. From
