In the Wake of the News By Ring W. Lardrier. MAY 3. Lennie is in Pittsburg with the aine and I have Just written him a. letter, the first letter I have ever written to a man to whom I was be trothed. 1 will write down a copy of the letter here: Dearest Husband to Be: I do not know whether to forgive you or not for "not calling me up be fore you took tho train for Pittsburg. Is that a nice way to treat tho girl who you have just persuaded to share you life and fortunes? Hut I sus pect the reason, Lennie. You wero with some of those other horrid bail players and were afraid they would jolly you were you to tell thein you had to call up a lady. These four days while you are in Pittsburg are going to be slow, tire some days to somebody you loft In Chicago. Can you guess who I mean, Lennie? The person 1 mean is a girl twenty-two years old, with wavey ltair that some would call golden. A little slip of a girl com pared to a big man like tho cave man who has made her say she would marry him. I do not know how I will evor pass the time dearie, and I hope my work keeps me busy so that I will not no tice how slow the hours pass by. Next year when you go to Pittsburg, you will take me along with you, wont you? Do many of tho playors take their wives with them? What do tholr woar in tho evening in the ho tels? One thing sure, Lcnnio, you will never be ashamed of me for look ing sloppy and not neat. I do not believe in a girl neglecting their dress even after they are married. About the ring, Lennie. I started to talk to you about it Sum;*.y night, but'you were still thinking about that horrid old game and would not pay attention. Of course baseball is your business, dearie, and I must not find fault if you keep your mind on It sometimes whon you are with me. That is, now. After wo are one, I will expect you to forget everything but I the minute you are through your work for the day. But we started to talk about the ring. There is no hurry about you getting it, Lennie. That in, I mean I .do not want you to get it while you are in Pittsburg, but wall till you are back home ngain and then maybe you would like to havo me go along with you and pick it out. I know if you went alone you would get something too expensive and I do not want my boy throwing away too much money on me. Besides, you do not know tin; size of ray fln | ger and might got one too small and 1 could not wear It. Would not that , be terriblo, Lonnle? If you let me ! know what train you are going to get home on, I will try and meet your train, Lennio, and then we can go around town a little and look In the windows and maybe find junt what we are looking for that will I Ik> satisfactory to both of us. O, my dear big fiancee, I am wild to pf? you again and talk over plana for the wedding, etc., and nee about a ring. He sure and let me know what train you will get home on. With love and x x x x . YOUIt OWN LITTLE 01-RLIE. May G. I have Just recoived a letter from Lennle and for fear I will lose tho original, I will make a copy of it here. It is not as long as I would have it, but I suppose a girl must always allow for how busy these men are. "Dear Girlie," the letter reads, j "Tinker has not told us yet what I time we are going to leave Pittsburg, so It will be Impossible for me to tell you what train I will be on. I | think It will be very earty In the | morning that we reach Chi and I do not want you to take the trouble to get: us to be at the station. I do not know what It. It. we will come in over, so if you went to ono sta-! tion, wo might come In at another1 and then you would of wasted your time and besides It will probably bo 'i or 4 In the a. m., too early for you j tc try and get up and meet us. If ; we were going to reach ('hi in the j middle of the day and I knew what it. U. we were coming on, I would like to have you at the station to meet us. But Tinker has not told u?? yet and I do not think he will toll us in tlmo for me to let you know. | So this time I guess you will have to pass up meeting me. Another time, j maybe. My arm has not felt good since we j came here on account of the weather, i That Is a lucky thing for Callahan1 and the Pittsburg club, but not so lucky for us. I would like to of pitched here and if I could not beat this club I would lay down and die. About the ring, there is no hurry about that and I know some of the boys on the club that are friends of people in that' business, so when I i get ready to buy, I can probably buy right. I will rail you up after we g?*t; ; home, but I do not know if I will!
