WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS?
In an Ohio town where the "good people" get most of their amuse
ment by fighting The "bad," there was a mayor whom' the "good" people
suspected was 'bad." So this was how they put him to the test:
They hired an alluring woman and got her to make friends with his
honor. A skilful woman, out to ensnare a man, especially if she be pretty
and dimply and apt in the affectations of a beauty in distress, generally, so
history tells us, makes some headway.
It was so in this case. The woman tempted and the man bit like the
great, gawky gudgeon that a man is. Nothing wilfully wrong, understand.
No deliberate plotting of perfidy on hi$ p"art. Just a foolish yielding to a lure
as old as creation. -
And when the trap was ready to- be sprung, lo, there came detectives,
policemen and a photographer; the "good" people chortled with glee and a
flock of them hied to the governor to see if they could get the "bad" mayor
Wonderful reforming, isn't it? '

Sox Go East Minus Walsh and
Sullivan Boehling Sets Record. '
Anyone who saw the White Sox
depart for Boston last night would
have a hard time believing they were
viewing the South Side regulars. Ex
planation: Ed Walsh, Doc White and
Bijly Sullivan were not in the party.
Neither was Bill Lange nor Walter
If at the start of the season any
wild-eyed dopist has declared there
would be an Eastern trlp'of the Sox
without Walsh, White or Sullivan, he
would have been hustled off to the
insane court. These three veteran
stars used to be the main attractions
when the Sox were on tour, and fans
crowded the ball yard, even when
they weren't due to work, simply to
glimpse their manly forms.
Leaving Walsh "behind is further
proof that Manager Callahan can't
depend on the spit king. Ed Is mak
ing a last effort to round to condition
by staying at home , and doing heavy
work daily. If he can manage to
approach his 1912 form he will be
worked overtime in the final stages
of the pennant race.
