Dear Sir.?I was surprised end must pnfesa mortified (', read In ye ar yal able paper of the Vth an article whose wo-fold purpose was to drag the State 'emale Normal School at Parmvlllo nto politics and to Injure those who re acknowledged tu the aitlcle to live done exceptionally good work f. r he school and for the State. I can ish r..r no higher commendation than aat of having contributed to the cco omlc at.d elllcleiit management of tills nut Institution. I am charged with being a Republl *n. I am no politician. Wheti a oung muii I v. as active in politics, eld olflco under a Republican Odmln stration and was a loyal member of hit party, wh-n. twenty-six years go, i was made business manager of his Institution at the suggestion of hat cultured gentleman, accomplished ? cholar and stalwart Democrat, tho ate Dr. John A. Cunningham, I <je ermlncd then and there to eschew poll ics and take r.o active part in the merest of either party, but devote my vhole energy to the upbuilding of this ehooi; this promise 1 have kept aithfully. I did vote for Mr. McKinley vh? n the free sliver plank In tho democratic pisiform drove so tna.-.y ife-long Democrats to his standard, resent congressional canvass In this, ae Fourth District, 1 am for Mr. teds of Democrats of Prince.

And now I may be pardoned for r word of my work as business manage? of the Normal In the 11 rat years of my service I rece|ved the modest sal? ary of S37.&Q a month, at.d then I wai Indeed man of all work I was not e'fown with it until now | have n good home arid ... good saliiry. This, how? ever, has been due not to more mOfiey appropriated by the State,.'but to care? ful, thoughtful, painstaking and eco? nomical management of household af? fairs. No student has ever complained of bed or board, neglect, sick or well, sind Vet from regular' receipts sufficient has been saved to pay for the building of other and necessary structures without asking the State for a dollar towards such. In closing permit me to say again. 1 am no politician, am a supporter of lion- lyobert Turnbull In his present light to retain his seat In Congress, and am business manager of the State Female Normal School at Farmvllle. and ask for r.o higher tribute to my work ns such than this, taken from tho article which gave birth to this com? munication: "The Parmvlllo Normal has the unique record among Virginia Institutions under State control of laying its expenses in full and of educating an average of 800 young wo? men to tenth at n lower per capita cost than any school of similar grade i.i the I'nlted States. This remarkable tecor.l is due In great part to three men?J. t* Jarmnn. president of tho school; Robert Turnbull, president of the board, arid Benjamin M. Cox, busi? ness manager." Respectfully, R.

SB m wm m m RED SOX AND GIANTS SURE FOR BIG SERIES Both Teams Have Such Long Leads That Only Most Extraordinary Reversals Will Kob Either of the Honor. Philadelphia. September !>.?By win? ning every game they have >*et to p!ay. including the postponed same at New York, the Athletics could wind up th.-. season with 102-ii2-,662. To beat that, all the Bed Pox would have to do would be to win eleven o? the twenty four games they have yet to play, which wouid give them a total of 103 51-.669. From which It may ibe in? ferred that the Bed Sox's chances ol ultimately winning tho American League, pennant this season are fair? very fair. Although their margin Is not so grfcat, the Giants s.-em t? have just as big a cluch on the National League Hag. It was thought the Ph'lltes might be able to clock them up, but they fell down lamentably on the job. the Giants walking away with five of the seven games played. At this writing It is possible for the Chicagos, by winning every game they play, to close tho season with 1?6 vlct?r'es and 4S defeats?a percentage of >*.;s. By winning eighteen of Ihelr twenty-six games the Giants will,finish 107-t*r.0?B. An upset In the National race is still possible, but It is so remote as to be hardly worth considering.

In view of the sin sutlotial start made . > tho Giants, that a hew record for games '.von during h season?lit! by the- Chicago Cubs? would be hung it;, this year, hut the Giants' slump in mldscason has pre? cluded that If they were to win all of their twenty-six samt3 they would be one victory shy of the Cubs'" figures. It Is more than likely, however, that Hoston will eclipse the American League record of 102 games held by the Athletics.. To do that they win have to win only eleven of tho remaining twenty-four games. If forced to play out the string this season, the Bostons would have .doubtless set a record for th? bthei American League clubs to shoot at fof >tars to come. With the champ? ionship practically Vwo'n, it Is more than likely that there will be a mild let-up In ';. ? Boston's speed until it comes time for them to tune up for the bit; series, and many a game w ill be passed up that could have be- n Won with a little extra exertion. Fan* SurprUed, Though not entlrelj unexpected, the announcement Friday night that Man? ager Mack had sent home Chief Ben d< ; and R?be ?ldring with instruc? tions to report to him October 1 ? came a., a surprise to me fans of tins city. There were Indications from i:. very beginning of tin- season that BOhder would not be In condition to! give his best services to the team, and then, to make matters worse. Rube Uldrlng, who is easily Inituen ,? I, fell by lb.- roadside. In view Of p:es ti.t developments, it might have booh just as well for Manager Mack lb hove taken tho bull by the horns at' the Jump, and hahdpd out the sentence he did on Friday. In fact, be has been subjected to criticism for not doing so. for the whole town seemed to know that tho Chief and Ruben were hitting the high 6pots, ond the location of the high apots could have been had for the asking. But so long as there was a chance for tliu Ath lectlcs to win the pennant. Manager Mat k <lid not despair of bringing Bendei around. As n matter "f tact, the Chief always had been handled with gloves. Some players can be brought to their milk with a club, but Bonder Is not one of that kind, lie his to be salved and propitiated, and Connio stuck patiently ? to his task, but without result. You can lead a horse to Water, but yon can't make him '.rink. Render could have been disciplined, could have been laid off without pay. but that would not have made him pitch winning ball, assuming he had pitched at all. And to a lesser degree tho same ap? plies to Oldrlng, There Is no question I about Oldring's ability as a ball player, when ho is light, and even when not entirely rlghtj lie Is far better than many others. With Lord showing sur? prising reversal nf form, and the un? fortunate aeeident to Dan Murphy. Mr. Mark WAS compelled to stand a lot from Oldting that bo would not have endured for a minute under different conditions, .lust what Oldrlng can do when he tries he showed by his spurt, after Walsh and Kddie Murphy were secured from Baltimore. "Mit he soon experienced another relapse, which culminated in the drastic action of Friday last. .Not Athletics' Vcnr. Possibly this was hot the Athletics' year to win the championship under any circumstances; As the figures Show; the Bostons have played bril? liant and consistent hail ever since obtaining the lead, and if pushed could probably have Increased by ten gomes the record of the Athletics for a sea? son's victories. Maybe tho Atheltlcs could not have won then, particularly In view of the accident to Danny Mur? phy. Hut with Bend.r pitching In the forth ho did last season, and Oldrlng playing up to concert pitch. there would have been nhotlier story to tell. Think "f the bracing effect theso two men eoltig right would have had upon the rest nf the players! Think of the demoralizing Influence of their insub? ordination upon the other players, who, through thick and thin, pave tho man? agement the best th<\ had !n the shop, and kept the team In the running un? der adverse Conditions! The players Who stood up so t:e.-ily all season are ! particularly hard hit by the failure of ! Bender and Oldrlng to live up to the I obligations ?f their contracts; Th. Ir extraordinary performance of leading ! It team halting and team fielding will I come near Convincing any one that with th? full pitching and full outflol.l strength brought out another -worlds championship would have come to this city, In which event every player on? the team would havo been J3.000 or s? better off It Is n hard Job to build up a championship train under th* most; favorablo conditions, and after one I* built up. as was the case with thV Athletics this year.
