The following -written by Winnifred Black anpeare-J in the Tuesday issue of the New York Journal: Professor Oscar Chrisman i3 in trou blp. He ought to be. He anse in a mother's congress the other clay and said that men reason and women love, and then he hurried home to pet In out of the wet. He didn't run fast enough. The lightning struck be fore he got to his front gate. The eon press rose as one woman and denounced him and his work. And since then he and his theories have been as a by Word and a reproach in the land. Lid you read his little speech? It was interesting. Jokes ahvays are in this vale of tears, even if they are uncon scious. Professor Chrisman says that women love by nature, and then he wants to open a college to train women to love. Why, professor, don't you follow your logic out and open a school to teach du ks to swim? Women are born for wives and moth ers. You don't have to send them to col lege to learn that, and besides, if you did, who, oh. who. would teach thm? You, my dear professor? With your en couraged and encouraging theories? Professor Chrisman says some rather indiscreet things about the way we put our girls "on the market," and then he plumps out full and free, asking no fa vors and says out in meeting that men do not love. Probably the men you know do not love. Dr. Chrisman. Men who go out and search the mar ket for a wife as they would go to an employment agency to get a good cook, warranted sound and kind, and city bred, usually do not. We've all seen and loathe the man who arrives at maturity and says "Go to, I will find me a wife." and proceeds to find one, not any particular wife, you know, but just any one, who will take lam and put up with the poor excuse for love he offers her. There are women who do not love they don't know how. They marry a man because they respect him. "Love grows afterward," they saw So it does Their kind of loVe. The kind of love that a good purry, comfortable cat gives to one who feeds her; but reai love they've never even heard of it. and it would scare them to death to tell them about it. So men do not love. Professor Chris man! Pardon me, I beg to differ with you. A woman has everything to gain in marriage. Man has every thing to lose. Marriage is a woman's haven. It is a man's dry dock. When a man marries a woman, unless he's engaging a housekeeper or a nurse, he marries her because he thinks he'd die if he didn't. Any man who walks up to the altar with a whole church full of girls gig gling at him, and a nervous spasm shaking him from head to foot, is in love, or else he's very much in need of money. Seriously, however, professor, don't say things like that about men and wo men. Some young growing thing might be lieve them and then there would be mis chief. Men do love, and women, too, thank heaven, and the cheap synicism that smirks sarcastically at an honest man's affection is learned in a school not cele brated for its wisdom or its delicacy of sentiment. Can men love? Ask your doctor, your priest, yes, even your lawyer. The divorce courts tell two stories. Be sure you listen to both of them. Ask the woman you know, the woman whose husband works from dawn to sundown to make money for her and her chil dren. Look at the man you love, the man who is cross sometimes, the man who reads his paper when you are talking, the man, perhaps, who hasn't told you you are the prettiest thing alive for at least a whole week, even the man who pays another pretty woman a compli ment and likes to dine with an agree able one without you occasionally. Look at him. Faults and follies, mis takes and all. Do you care to say he does not love you? Fall ill and see. Go away awhile and find out. Get into some iknd of trouble and observe. New York, June 22. After a pow wow of several weeks' duration Frank Erne, the lightweight champion, and Terry McGovern, the champion feather weight, have come to an understanding and have signed articles to fight a ten round bout before the Twentieth Cen tury Athletic club at Madison Square Garden July 16. The articles call for 128 pounds at the Tingside, winner to take all, and Erne agrees to knock Mc Govern out before the end of the tenth round or lose the decision. More than two weeks have been spent by the principals in haggling over a dif ference of one pound. Erne stood out for 129 pounds at the ringside and Terry for 12S. but in the end the lightweight champion gave in and agreed to Terry's terms. This match, which will open the Twentieth Century Athletic club, will settle a. long-standing doubt as to whether McGovern can take on light weights and still remain undefeated. It will also give the admirers of both men a chance to see their man fight to his limit.' James C. Kennedy, manager of the Madison Square Garden club, said that there is not one chance in a million of anything accept accident or illness hin dering the fight. Followers of pugilism oeiieve that Erne, in consenting to 1: pounds ringside, is making Terry no lit tie concession. BAUGIDIAN SUED. Sequel to Mysterious Disappearance of Shawnee County School Teacher. The divorce proceedings which were commenced in the district court Thurs day by Prudence Baughman, who asks to be divorced from Samuel Baughman, recall the rather strange story' of bis desertion of what was thought to be a happy home. Mr. Baughman was a school teacher living in Rossville with his wife and child. He had been mar ried two years and his marriage rela tions were in all respects pleasant so far as any of his friends knew. . During the summer of 1S08 he came to Topeka to attend the teachers institute and on June 6 disappeared. It was thought that he had been murdered and a search was made but nothing was heard of him and for a year it was thought he was dead. After he had been gone more than a year he was discovered teaching school in Nebraska. He gave no explanation for his strange actions and requested the parties who found him to say noth ing concerning his past life to the peo ple wnere ce was tnen living. He re fused to return here and said he had no objections to his wife getting a divorce. This she refused to do but has since re considered her decision and yesterday filed the suit and asks for divorce on the grounds of desertion. The child died a short time after Baughman's disappear- HOB AFTER MAUCK. St Joe Players and Audience Angered at umpire s Decisions. tet. Joseph, Mo., June 22. Umpire Mauck sot his first taste of trouble on the home grounds today when mob from the bleachers swooned down upon him m the seventh inning, an the police, reinforced by the players of tne umana team, had a difficult tim preventing him receiving serious bodily harm. Two strikes had been called on Schrall. left fielder for the home team, which proved very exasperating to Mc Kibben. his men and the bleachers. Captain Frans and a half dozen police men rushed to protect Mauck when the second strike was called. Clubs were used and Schrall was ejected from the grounds. Most of the St. Joseph play ers were repeatedly finec. Mauck has been warned not to attempt to umpire today's game. There will probably be no change in umpires and trouble is expected.

Rocky Ford Correspondent Writes James Chumos. The State Journal has received a letter from Rocky Ford, Colo., in which tne correspondent says: "Your correspondent accidentally ran across James Chumos, the Greek boy who sui'urised his friends in To peka not long ago by marrying the aged but fascinating Mrs. B. O. Fow ler. They both appear happy and eon tented, and spoke delightfully of their short life together and the prospects of the future. Mr. Chumos is having a regular holiday life of it, studying and planning and making friends among his wife's people. 'Tell my fr'ends in Topeka,' said he, his eyes brightening, and his hand rising in an eostacy of movement, 'that I am eternally happy; that I have all the opportunities of a single man for leis ure and study, together with the hap piness,' here he smiled upon his motherly-looking wife, and she smiled back, 'all the happiness of a married man.'

Colt Covered the Mile and One-Half in 2:35 1-2 at Hawthorne. Chicago, June 22. That Lieutenant Gib son is fit to a race for a king's ransom was demonstrated yesterday morning at Hawthorne. The public favorite for the American Terby was given his first real work-out since he cime to Chicago, and his performance showed that if anything tie is in oetcer iorm tnan ever oerore. The son of G. V". Johnson was led out or nis stall at 6 o clock m the morning, and a small army of trainers, owners and "rail birds" greeted Mr. Smith's J25.n0 oeauty. Jockey tsolancl was in the saddle, and with Pretorean as cacemaker. the colt annihilated the full Derbv distance of one mile and a half in 2:3513. one-half sec ond faster than the American Oerbv has ever been run in. The track over which the colt made the running was fairly fast, not. however, with a record-breaking cushion. Trainer Charley Hughes took personal charge of the colt before the trial and had Boland do some warming up before the watches were clicked. The timers for the race were W. P. llagrane and Albert Franklin. The colt broke well and at once set down to a distance stride. The fir?t eighth was run in 0:12 3-5. and the Quarter was finished in 0:25. At the three-eighths pole the time was 0:37, and. coming under the wire for the half, the time was 1:02'. and the tnree-quarters were reeled off in 1:14 4-5. Pretorian. who ur to this time hnrt hung on gamely, began to tire and was out ot tne running, juieutenant Gibson soed on, and the seven furlongs were made in 1.2S. The mile was run in 1:41. with the colt never turning a hair. Around the turn he sped and swung into the stretch fresh as a daisy, ar.rt the mile and an eighth had been caught at liSi1:. In the next eighth Gibson slackened his speed slightly, but again came strong. The mile and a. quarter was made in 2:0SU. and when the journey was at an end Boland shook Gibson up a bit nearing the wire, but the colt finished strong, and com pleted the distance in 2:351,s- St. Joseph Races Begin July 3.

The Chicago correspondent of SDorting Life thus speaks of the Phillies' outfield: "Roy Thomas has caught more flies than any other fielder in the league, while the Philadelphia trio have nailed more chances than any other three fielders in the business. This may have had a good aeai to ao witn tne yuaKers success it encourages a pitcher to see long drives collected in that fashion." Manager Selee of the Bostons, so Dame Rumor says, has lines out for one of the best intielders in the league, and in or der to secure him is willing to pay big money for his release. Perhaps he is af ter Lajoie. Manager Ewing. of the New Yorks, has at last written to Pitcher Rusie, so says an exchange, and in consequence the lat ter is expected to report In the near fu ture. When a hit is badly needed Hughey Jen nings can come as near delivering the goods as any player in the land. Chick Stahl roams about in that left pasture as if he had been there for years. Philadelphia leads in batting by a large margin. Boston a good second and St. Louis third. Buck Freeman, of the Bostons, has been roasted for his fielding in every posi tion that he has played this season. How ever, his batting slili commands admir ation. Boston has agents out after young play ers. Catcher Clarke Is trying to sign Pitcher Killebrand. of Princeton and i Hugh UufTy has recommended the pur chase of Shortstop O'Brien, of Bingham ton. Dick Cooley continues to play fine tall for Pittsburg. In 23 games he had only two errors out of 242 chances a record not equaled by any other first baseman in th, league. In these games he also scored 22 hits and IK runs. The St. Louis club, after selling Catcher O'Connor to Pittsburg, released Pitcher Cuppy to Boston. This leaves but Man ager Tebeau. Cy Young and Jesse Burkett of the old guard in the St. Louis team. The Chicago iniield is a bit uncertain. Childs is not as speedy as of old, and fails to hang onto fast throws for double plays.

He got two more singles yesterday. Elmer seems at home at the top of the batting order.

New York following with 76, Phila delphia next with 66. St. Louis 61. Chicago 51, Cincinnati 50. Boston 49, and Pittsburg 36. Demont (Brooklvn), Selbach and Doyle (New York) le-ad the list, eaca with 15 pilfers. Flick (Philadelphia' and Keeler (Brooklyn) follow, each with 14. Brooklyn, besides leading in bases stolen, has succeeded in keeping down its oppo nents' stolen bases to the lowest notch. Only 50 bases stolen are credited to Brooklyn's opposing players. Chicago has the next record, 55 bases stolen by oppo nents. Pittsburg follows with 56. Cincin nati with 57. New York and St. Louis each 5S, Brston -. and Philadelphia last with 70 to its credit. The Philadc-Iphias were the first to rencU the 10. 20 and 30 won games post. Tha race between them and Brooklyn to tho 40 mark will probably prove an Interest ing struggle. Neier before in the history of the na tional game has the battie for champion ship honors reached so close a stride as at present. In years past the leading club generally had a cinch upon the coveted bunting on or about July 4. The standing of all teams up to date makes it easy to ascertain that neither the Brooklyns nor the Philadelphia wiil have a walkover for the flag by the glorious Fourth. Here is a pointer which the National League could adopt with profit: President Johnson, of the American League, ha3 suspended Manager George Stalling?, of the Detroit club, for lo days for using foul language on the ball field.

New Tork, June 22. While no definite ar rangements have been made yet, it is saie to say that Eatin & L-ambie's g-ood colt Kinley Mack, winner of the Brooklyn and Suburban handicaps, and Perry Bel mont's crack colt, Kthelbert. winner of the Metropolitan handicap, and conqueror of Jean Eereaud in the special race, will meet in a special race at Sheepshead Bay on Saturday next for a pursue of S5.0O). The trainers of both horses met today and talked the matter over, and during the day it was stated that the match was a certainty, although no agreement had been reached. It is said that Eastln Larabie are not very anxious to have their colt take part in a match race, but in or der to accommodate Mr. Belmont they may agree to it. One thing; is certain, there wt!l be no side betting to the race, as it wiil be run for the purse only. Green B. Morris yesterday shipped sev eral of his horses to Chicago.
