GREAT ATHLETES WILL REPAESEirum ABROAD N K\V YORK. Sept. 2i.—Probably the greatest quartet of athletes ev. : gathered together in the United < States for a trip to foreign lands to show what they can do will leave New > ork day after tomorrow or. the steamship Oscar 11. They will visit iH-nmaik, Norway and Sweden! and will take part in competitive contests in principal cities of these countries. The four are Robert Simpson of the University of Missouri, world's champion 120-yard hurdler; Fred1. S. Murray of California. senior A. I A. U., champion 220-yard low hurd* | lor; Ted Meredith, former senior! champion quarter miles, and *Jop I l.oomis, a star hurdler ami sprinter. 1 The first stop will bo at Chrlsti- i ania, October 12; Copenhagen the; following day. and the athletes will | appear at a special meet arranged in their honor at Stockholm Octobv r 21. The four are the best all-around athletes this country can offer. With the exception of Meredith all are men who can perform in high-class fashion both on the track and In the field. Meredith is strictly a track man. A special hurdle race un doubtedly will be arranged at eaco of the meets, for In Simpson. Mur ray and Loomis the Europeans will have the opportunity of seeing the world's best flight takers. Com petition between Murray and Simp son, especially, should prove high ly interesting. Loomis, Murray and Simpson al so can be called upon to broad jump, for each of them has a mark of some dignity. Each also can higii jump, although there is little prob ability that Simpson will be asked to take part in this event. Loomis and Murray are shot putters and should furnish some lively competi tion for the Scandinavians. Meredith will display his well known speed in the 440 and 880 yard events over the track, and wit.a his three mates will form a link in a relay team which should be un beatable. Each man will run 220 yards in the relays. Since the war has forced an abandonment of the Olympic games the athletes who (will be sent to compete in the Scandinavian games w ill give the for» igners their only opportunity to see the foremost American sprinters and field men. The four men will leave for home October 29 and are due to reach the American shore November 18. Roy Corhan, a brilliant fielder, but, like a great many short-stops, a poor hitter in the major leagues, has been released by Miller Huggins to the San Francisco Pacific Coast league club. Corhan always has been a steady hitter in coast league circles. The Wichita franchise in the West ern league has been turned over to Colorado Springs, which has wanted a franchise in that circuit for many years. , When Dan Costello was released to an International league club by Manager Jimmy Callahan of the Pi rates he announced his intention of retiring from baseball. He was a sworn friend to Al Mamux and was suspended at the same time Mamux was put on the disgraced list by | Callahan. I _—_ THE OFFICIAL COTTON SIUOUKFN GROWERS WASHINGTON, Sept. 26.—To as sist in bringing about more extensive use of the official cotton standards of the United States by growers in their sales, the office of markets an-l rural organization of the United States department of agriculture is co-operating with the states rela tions service of the department in placing in the hands of county agents in the cotton-producing sections se'.s of practical forms of the standards.

Sept 2« Whether penniless latvnrer* who have suffered areidents In fac tories or elsewhere shall be ac cepted in dispensaries, and where the money is coining from to pay for their treat ment if they are accepted, is one of the subject* for discus sion at the annual convention of the American Hospital asso ciation, which began here to day. The question lias been much hashed over and a cer tain part of the membership is said to favor excluding them. Pr. Winfield Smith of ltalti mote. Dr. Richard T. Border of Fail River, Dr. Charles F.

Ross of Buffalo also will speak. kept in a place accessible to cotton growers, in the care of a competent custodian who does not profit di rectly from trading in cotton. More than 6t» sets of the practi cal forms of the standards already have been shipped to county agents. It is expected that more than 100 will soon be placed in tills way. Ea h set of the practical forms consists of the 9 grades of white cotton. The sets remain the property of the United States government. In arranging for the keeping jf the standards in the counties the office of markets and rural organ ization has approved such agencies as banks, chambers of coni mere.*, boards of trade, stores whose pro prietors do not trade in eotton, etc. The official cotton standards cf the United States are used by practi onlly every Important spot market and exchange In the south, and it is the desire of the cotton specialists of the department of agriculture that the sales and purchases of cot ton from the time it leaves the farm ers’ hands until It reaches these larger markets also shall be con ducted on the basis of the standards. It is believed that the presence of a set of the practical forms in each county, where farmers may examine and become familiar with them, will be a valuable educative force in grad ing and will tend to bring about the substitution of methods of more ex act classification in place of the ap proximations to grades now often employed in gin, street and ware house sales. With the forms of the standards in easy reach for examination an I comparison and the published repots of grade prices in the nearest im portant spot market available through daily papers, it should be possible for growers to arrive at a reasonably dose valuation of a given grade of cotton. It is expected that some county agents will figure the local valuations from day to day for thr. different grades, taking into consideration the cost of handling cotton to the nearby spot market, and will oulletin the figures. The office of maikets and rural organ ization will furnish such couniy agents from time to time Quotations on the various official grades from the nearest important spot market, as well as from all the spot markets designed under the cotton futures act.
