the park would be filled far beyond

be the largest crowd of fans in the
history of this park.
Even the police proved powerless to
keep the crowd from interfering with
the game by crossing over the foul
lines. Rube secured extra police but
to no avail. The fans were assured of
their money's worth, as the players
were in good form, and the 'weather
was fine. ' However, the game started
with Carr of Kansas Gty up.

AMERICA DISGRACED BY '
Methodist Bishops Declare It Must
Be Utterly Abolished.
Hot Springs, Ark. (Special to
The Broad Ax.) The official weight
of the Methodist Episcopal Church,
South, numbering two and a quar
ter million members, was thrown
into the balance against lynching by
the Quadrennial Address of the Col
lege of Bishops to the General Con
ference now in session here. Having
commented on the Negro's "com
mendable zeal" in the effort for edu
cation and on the remarkable prog
ress made by the race since it emerged
from slavery, the bishops continue:
"Wc urge our people everywhere
to do all they can for the uplifting of
the Negroes in preparation for a safe
and helpful citizenship. This implies
that they shall have complete justice
where their lawful rights are con
cerned. We especially urge that
everything possible be done to pre
vent lynchings, which are no less a
disgrace to those who engage in them
than they are an outrage upon the
helpless victims. This crime of
crimes, which is not only a complete
subversion of law but a stroke at the
very life of lawvitsclf, has discredited
our nation in the eyes of other civil
ized nations and brought undying ob
loquy upon many of the States. ofthe
Union. It is hoped that the States
will continue to legislate against this
shameful crime and that the public
conscience will be speedily so aroused
that it will be utterly abolished."

Figures In Wooa.
Figures in wood have varfou

those due to structure, those caused
by color variation or pigmentation,
and to combination of the two, says
the American Forestry Magazine.
These uguln may be clussltled as nor
mal and ubnormaN or pathologic By
normal Is meant the natural condition
of the wood of n sound tree. In the
abnormal or pathologic are to be found
the peculiar distortions und colora
tions resulting from disease, the at
tacks of insects and activities of va
rious agencies not a part of the regu
lar life processes of the trees.
