| MIXED-UP PILGRIMS I
By H. IRVING KING
<®. IHJ, by MoClure Ncwapaper Syndicate )
To tell the truth, Arabella Wilcox
van a very pretty girl, uod a very nice
girl In every way, but she was not
what is culled ‘•lntellectual.’* Ara
bella got ulong very well until she met
Jtex' Hamilton. Hamilton wag the
catch of the season. Hut, ulus! he
was “literary," hod written a book
and talked literature, and all the girls
hud a terrible time studying up in
order to be able to talk with him on
anything like passable terms.
Ah it wag, she was constantly on
guard to foil his attempt to tulk
books with her and only saved her- ,
self on several occasions hy cutting
short conversations which were other
wise exceedingly agreeable to her.
Sir. Hamilton, she thought, was de
lightful. Hut between him und her she
realized was a great gulf fixed—her
absolute Ignorance of literature. She
was sure to muku gome awful break
If she talked with him for any length
of time.
"Why did I cut literature so’ at
school?" she asked herself remorse
fully. So it was with very mixed
feeling that she heard her mother say
one day, "Bello, dear, !itr. Hamilton
Is going to drop In to tea this after- 1
noon. Be sure and show him that
your father and 1 dltl not waste our
money on your education. It cost
enough, goodness knows I Hamilton
Is a great catch and very literary.
He’s written a book, they say. Your
father and 1 never had the early ad* :
vantages you have hud. But we want
to show Mr. Hamilton that, though we ,
mny not be literary ourselves, per
haps, we luive a daughter who is.”
"Hut, mother," cried Bella aghast, !
"I am awfully rust*- on literature. I
never was any good at It, anyway,
You know I wasn’t. Oh, dear, I am
sure to make some horrid blunder If
1 am forced to tulk about books with
Sir. Hamilton. Hon't ask me to. I
can't, 1 can’t."
"(’an’tl" cried Mrs. Wilcox. “And j
you u graduate of the Melton Mow
bray School for Young Ladles? I am
ashamed of you. You must. Hamil
ton Is always wanting to talk about
you every time I meet him. What do j
you mean, ungrateful child? Ho you
want to die an old maid, with such a i
chance as Hamilton before you? j
There, go along with you und he sure
you do as I tell you."
Her mother's harangue only added
to the trepidation with which Bella
met Mr. Hex Hamilton at the ten 1
table that afternoon. And her trepl- j
dution grew Into absolute horror when, j
In spite of Bella’s attempts to keep I
the conversation In channels lending
ns far as possible away from the rocks
of literature, Ml'S. Wilcox obstinately
and resolutely sent the current run- j
nlng back to the subject Bella was
trying to avoid. And, not content
with that, the fond mother openly
boasted to Hamilton of her daughter's
grent proficiency In matters literary
until Bella, seeing esenpe Impossible, ‘
boldly plunged In and struck out reck
lessly In the perilous waves of book
ish conversation.
Some woman sitting nearby was re
counting a tale of a little Journey she
and some of her friends had recent- 1
ly made. Hamilton turned to Bella ;
with a smile and said:
"Quite like the Canterbury Pilgrims
—were they not?”
"Yes, Indeed," replied Bella, and i
should have let It go nt that, but she
must needs add, "I have not read
Chaucer’s 'Pilgrim's Progress’ for j
years."
The sudden pause and quick look of
Humilton told her at once that she
had made n "break" and, in her con- j
fusion she blurted out: "Oh. 1 mean
his Chllde Harold's pilgrimage, of
course.”
Hamilton, well bred as he was.
could not repress u smile. Bella, j
blushing to the roots of her hair, rose
hastily and said: “You really must
excuse me. Mr. Hamilton; I must go
and speak with Mrs. Witherspoon—" j
and walked over to one of the women
guests. For a whole week Bella re- 1
fused to go anywhere that she was
likely to meet Hamilton and declined
to see him when he called—as he did
several times. Finally she received
the following note from him:
"My Dear Miss Wilcox: Why
should some mixed tip. no-account
pilgrims stand between me and a
young lady I sincerely admire? If von
are not thoroughly conversant with
literature it is because you have
never had a competent instructor.
Will you let me be that instructor?”
The next time Hamilton called Bella
received hint. And do you think they
entered there and then upon a course
of literary study? They did not—
they found other things to talk nbotit. J
And before they were married, which i
was the following June, F>ella gave j
Hamilton clearly to understand that j
. having mixed those pilgrims up, they j
could stay mixed for nil of her. Mr. j
Hamilton has stopped writing hooks i
w hich don’t sell and is adding to his j
fortune by speculations in oil. He
will eat no npple dumplings but those
of his wife’s making

DEDICATION OF
LAWRENCE FIELD
the seventh inning that they began
to hammer the opposing pitcher and
put the game on ice. In that ses
sion, they batted in five runs, includ
ing a homer, with two meq on, and
gathered 3 more in the eighth by clev
er singles. All of which proved a
rout for Washington.
Spectators Praise Stand
The new field stands, having a seat
ing capacity of nearly 10,000, con
ceived by Rear-Admiral Henry 8.,
Wilson, superintendent, received high j
praise from the several thousand j
spectators who witnessed the game. |
The dedication was with simple, -but!
appropriate ceremony. The entire,
regiment of students, headed by the,
Academy band, marched from the res
ervation proper, and soon after being
seated, sang "Blue and Gold,” battle
song of athletic cornbut. Com. Thomas
ft. Kurtz, commandant of midship
men, and president of the Navy Ath- j
letic Association, started hostilities •
by tossing the first ball over. In
fact, he pitched two, and both efforts
were good. He heaved the first be
fore the camera nien had a chance
to get a “click” at hint, so again
he footed the rubber, and posed like
a “ole reglar.”
Flags Flying Ail Aronnd
Besides the Lawrence banner, flags
and pennants were strung ail
around the stands, v and there were
decorations of bAnting here and there.
.The Chesfertown lads got a run in
tho opening frame as a result of er
rors by Barchet and Captain Hpder
man. They tallied another in the
third on an error, single and a field
er’s choice. Bradford, who started
on the hill for Washington, held the
naval lads at bay until the fourth
when he weakened and got wild, and
made a gift to a brace of tallies. A
wild pitch with the bases loaded, was
responsible for one, and a free pass,
again with the sacks occupied, meant
another counter. Bradford then re
tired in favor of Simmons. The Mid
dies had a big time of it in the tra
ditional "lucky, seventh.” Four An
gles, and a sacrifice fly had brought
in two runs, and with two on, Harris
cleaned up by a line drive between
centre and right gardens. Simmons
was again hit hard in The eighth, the
middies collecting a trio of runs.
The visiters also bunched three Hits
for one run in the eighth.
Some "Firsts’’ Of The Oame
Peterson was the first Navy pitcher
to work on the new grounds. The
first hall pitched to Griffith, of the
Washington College team, was a
strike; likewise the second. Griffith
was then safe on first through Bur
chet’s error, which was the first m ule
on the new grounds. Captain Heder
man miscued soon afterward.
The first safe hit on the new ground
was the triple made by Gordy, of the
visitors, in the second inning. The
first Navy man to hit safely was Mills
who singled in the Navy’s half of the
same session. The first home run wan
the circuit drive by Harris, in the
seventh inning, which sedred two run
ners. Harris, the first batter up for
the Navy, drew a base on balls.
The first putout was credited to
Zimmerman, the Navy backstop, who
caught Dumschott's pop fly in the first
inning, and Peterson. Hederman and
Carney figured in the first assists
when they ran down Johnson between

was by Mills, when Cavanaugh sent
one to him in the second session.
The first man to fan was Carring
ton. of Washington, in the second in
ning. Zimmerman went the same
route for Navy In the same inning.
Ward was credited with the first
and only sacrifice hit of the game, as
well as the only stolen base.

SOUTHERM SOILS UNTAPPED;
WEALTH LURES PIONEERS j
CBy Tee Aasorlated PrrM.)
CHICAGO, Apr. 12. —Casting about
for new fields to conquer, the hardy
pioneer of the west and middle west
has turned his sight southward, and
the tide of pioneer migration is in that
direction, according to a survey just
completed and announced by the
bureau of development of the Illinois
Central Railroad.
"With approximately one-third* of
the arable and grazing territory de
-1 veloped at the present time, the trade
| and wealth of three southern States
j Kentucky, Tennessee and Louisiana
j todav exceed that of Holland. Belgium
and Denmark,” says the report.
| "The riches that are yet untapped
in these States, when brought into
full productiveness, will make this
part of the count rv one of the opulent
empires of the world.”
"The south has awakened from its
ancient languor," continues the re
j port. "It is eager to enter the arena
of the busy world and strive for the
rewards of commercial achievement.
The industrial development of the
Mississippi Valley has been backward
Less than 50 years ago the first lum
berman penetrated the hardwood for
ests of the lower Mississippi. Drain
age was one of the early problems.
But it has been within the last decade
that the development of the wonder
ful resources of this section began in
earnest.”
The report then goes on to point out
the advantages of the section, where
it says, the most fertile soil in the
world is to be found, even more fer
tile than the valley-of the Nile.
