Mr. Snappy Pressor Ignored tho mute appeal. Mo refolded tho newspuper, slipped it under tho blind man's arm, helped himself to a fchrn and walked on. A teamster with an unclean nock but perhaps a clean henrt was driving !y. He saw tho performance and with n wild whoop Jumped from his seat nml crabbed the nifty dresser by the arm. "Stonllut; the news from a blind man!" he excliiimed. "That's n little more than tho limit. You wouldn't give a man Hie mumps when you pot itirou'h with 'em." And with that ho delivered a back-hand slap across tho Jieadline purloiner's faro. And a cup on the corner, aroused by tho crowd, walked over, saw what was poing on and discreetly turned bis face away. The man who cuts his Lair, the man who gives only one cheer when three tiro called for, the man who holds out his littlest linger when asked to shako hands all these may low be considered second hand cheap men.

Life no longer holds any charm for Ilomeo'. He not only refuses to work, but positively declines to get up when the alarm goes otf. Itomeo hns been introduced to many aspiring mules, but he refuses to put on the old work net with a new partner. Because Borneo's usefulness as an industrious mule has been totally destroyed, tho owner wants Mr. Yardle to jy him for the loss of both animals. Milwaukee Twins Hailed as "Champion Runaways" M'LWAl'KEE. With the title of "Milwaukee's champion boy runaways" safely tucked away in their pockets, Joe and Billy I'urporn, eleven years .old, have added to their accomplishments the feat of successful financiering. Tho wandering twins are back In YERMOTuEK IS WAITItT fer roust KIDS which they sold to the rngmun and used the proceeds for things dear to the lionrt of every red-blooded youngster. Torn pants that.

Billy said Joe met with an. accident necessitating an attempt to repair n rent in bis pantaloons, the operation having made theui late for school in the first place, and It was not altogether a success in the second place. So they Just naturally didn't go to school, Lucky for Mr. Landon That Barber's Razor Slipped COLORADO SPBINV.S, COLO. Philip Smith, n miner, who arrived here during the week, relates that a man named Alexander Landon, another miner employed at a place known as Benton's Siding, was dead for two days jiliij two niglits, or wns so consiuereu ,l-,y a doctor, the undertaker nnd the swan's family. A casket bad been pro cured for him and the undertaker hnd K-onie to prepare the body for burial. The man was supposed to have suc cuii'bod to nn attack of pneumonia. The man's widow insisted on the corpse being shaved, nnd a barber was called to perform this operation. When ho had lathered the supposed deud niiwi's face and had his job about half completed the barber cut through a ismall pimple on the man's face and considerable blood poured forth. Within h few minutes the man gave evidence of returning life, nnd half an hour later was sufliciently recovered to be able to speak. lie said lie had beard every word that had been spoken during the time ho was supposed to be dead, but could not make out Just what had happened or what he could do to stop the burial proceedings. He realized that the doctor undertaker, barber and members of his family believed him dead, m wits powerless to make any sign of life until the barber made his lucky Klip with his razor. Mr. Landon, who was not greatly excited over his strange and thrilling experience, is recovering his strength rapidly nnd says h has no notion of yiiig until many years later. , JUST LlkP PIS wia put oe MrrU ONLY Cost 1!IS model cheap men walked up to the stand. Ho had on a lilyh hat, froel: coat, striped trousers, spats and mayonnaise mitts. A cane was crooked over his left arm. Ho looked like a man who could recite "What tho mots will wear" without nilsslim a stroke. A Klarinj; war headline on the blind mini's newspapers caught his oyo. He paused, and from a distance tried to read the announcement. This whetted his curiosity, nml stepping details of which were aired In tha the I'urporn family circle. The couplet of Huckleberry Finns managed .to amass the grand total of .$2 during their absence from the parental roof. Accompanied by a big police ser geant tho twins were returned to their home not the least bit fagged out by the experience nnd apparently very much regaled on candy and pies, which was their chief diet, according to Joe.

He was playing ut Bellevue, near Boston, one day and some of the drives threatened to land in the next county, but the daddy of them all was the one he hit off the ninth tee. It is seldom that a drive carries the cross trap on this hole. The hole itself is something like 2G0 yards, with the trap perhaps HO yards short of It. Babe not only carried the trap, but landed on the roof of the clubhouse, which is at least hole high. If the ball had been straight, It would have car ried fully 2S0 yards. M0 RAN MINUS STAR BATTERY Manager of Philadelphia National League Team Playing Without Alexander and Killifer. Pat Mornn, a former catcher, suc ceeded 'Charlie. Pooin us manager of the Philadelphia Nationals in No vember, 1014, und won a pennant with the team in 1915. Pat is forty-two years old. He was with Mon treal in 1899 1900; Boston Na tionals, 1901-1905; Chicago Nation als, 1900-1909, and Philadelphia Nationals ever since. Pat caught for three pennant National teams Pat Moran. winning Chicago (Chance's champions). Pat's Phillies finished second to Brooklyn In 1916, and second to the New York Giants last year. The loss of the Phillies' star buttery, Alexander and Killifer, sold to the Cubs last fall, will weaken the club this year. CATCHERS BUSY BEHIND BAT Killefer and Wlngo Lead National League With 120 Games Hannah Leader of Country. A catcher who works In at least 100 games each season lst worth a liberal salary.

It was a , great piece of base running, the ) equal of which seldom has been soon on any ball field in the ma- I jor leagues. MOTES Manager Clark Griffith Is hard put for catching material. Urban Fabor of the White Sox has passed the physical examination and awaits his call. Pick Ching, Mobile pitcher, is not n Chinaman as his name might Indicate, but he has tricks. Jack O'Toole, veteran Southern league umpire, has been laid up with an attack of rheumatism. Itnlph Craig, who played the outfield for Peoria, hist sensou, has been taken on by the Sioux City cllfu. Chick Gnndil, though still somewhat decrepit In the legs, is going good for the White Sox, particularly with the bat. The award by the national board of Pitcher Pepper Clark to Dos Moines was a life saver to Jack Coffey, who was hard up for pitchers. President Ilickey's rules against freak pitching are clear enough and as the decision is up to the umpires there should be few controversies. Portland fans have taken a great liking to Bill Feuerborn, the first base man secured from Salt Lake City, and are praising him to the skies. The Minneapolis club has released a number of players to St. Joseph of the Western league and those clubs pre sumably will work together during the season In exchange of players. The St. Louis Cardinals seem to have about made the Little Rock pitching staff when they sent Murchi son and Tuero to Kid Elberfeld, to say nothing about returning Hank Robin son. Stallings Is drawing more salary than any other National league muna ger except John McGraw. The latter has a whirlwind of a club, and as for the former, well, the least said the better. The Cardinals have signed a high school star of the Mound city named Robert Laramore. He Is a third base man, but has made quite n reputation as a runner, basketball player nnd football player. Having lost George Beall In the army draft, Roger Bresnahan made Hans Wagner an offer to play first base for the Toledo team, but old Hans wired back that he Is out of baseball for good. Arrangements have been made by the Brooklyn team to play n game every Sunday at the old Federal lea gue park In Newark, N. 3. One of the National league games scheduled to be played In the week, .will be trans ferred to Sunday. There. Isn't much fun for Rube Mar- quard In being In the box these days. Every time he gets up to perforin his offerings are slammed all over the lot. - Coast league critics are praising the work of Catcher DeVormer, the Cen tral league man brought out by Bill Ussk-k for his Veruou team. DIAMOND NEW INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT A VETERAN "Sage of Auburn" Has Been Con nectcd With Game Many Years. Served Long and Faithfully Secre. tary of National Aesociatlon of Professional Baseball Club Has Wide Scope. John II. Fnrrell, the now president tif tho International h-ngtic, Is some thing of a bast-bull genius. The "Stigo of Auburn" Is a real vet eran In tho game, for ho has been con nected with baseball for many years and there Isn't an tingle of the pastime which Is unfamiliar to him. As secretary of tlio National Associ ation of Professional Basebull Clubs, Farroll has served long and faithfully. Many a time his sage advice has served as n prop to a tottering minor league, ami with Mike Sexton, the ven erable president of the minor league body, l'arrell has been a godsend to tho minors. When the club owners of the dis rupted International league decided to roorg!ini::o their circuit this spring the first Important thing thoy sot out to do was to find a man capable of tak ing charge of affairs for thoui. They did not look far, but when tho berth was tendered to Farroll It waB done so with a foreboding that ho would not nccept. His doclsiou to take over the affairs of the league as Its president put now life into tho war-weary club owners und the International league was saved to baseball. By merging the International with the Now York Slate lcjiguo, of which Farroll was president, the circuit was made more compact than ever before nnd the best paying cities In both leagues now make up the now organi zation. Farroll now has a wider scope to display his baseball ability. That he will pull the now league through and eventually put it on u firm basis Is a practical certainty, for Farroll doesn't know what the word "can't" means. No man in tin; pastime knows more ball players than Farroll. He has the name of every ball player In the minor leagues at bis finger ' tips, anil he knows all about every man Jack of them. As president of the New York State league he dug up many promis ing players for his club owners. His league produced such stars as Eddie Murphy, Wallie Plpp, drover Cleve land Alexander, Frank Schulte, Heinle Zimmerman, Leon Catlore, Jack Gru ney, John Evers, Fred Coumbo, Leon Amos, Bill Hiuchinau and Steve O'Neill. JOE BOEHLING IS BACK WITH OLD SANDLOTTERS Five years ago Joe Boeliling went to Washington with the Richmond Bat tle As team, champions of the ama teur baseball league In Richmond, for a series with the Washington amateur champions. Boeliling was the star pitcher of the team, and the stumbling block for the opposition. He set the Washington lads down In order. One of the amateur sporting editors dug up Boeliling, nnd Griff gave the Richmond Thunderbolt a trial. He made good, and the next year after a poor start turned in the record string for straight wins. Then he went to Cleveland, where he was later released. Joe Boeliling, manager and pitcher, Richmond Battle Ax team, Is the ad dress given by Boeliling at present. Ho Is seeking games with the soldier teams at the various camps. Joe Is back with the sandlotters again. Will Leave Rutgers Five. Alfred A. Neuschaefer of Newark has been elected captain of Rutgers basketball team for next year. He was also guard on the eleven last fall. ' FIRST TRIPLE PLAY The first triple play of the major league season has been made. Heinle Groh to Lee Magee to Sherry Magee to Fred Allen, that's how It went, cutting off a Cardinal at second, another at first and the last one streaking It home. The Cincinnati Reds have the honor of hanging up the first three-ply death of 1913. They did It on April 28, at Cincinnati. Missed First Game.

THRIFT FLEDCE ALSO ASKED All Citizens Must Be Economically Adjucted to War Conditions If Nation Is to Play Its Part In Conflict. Washington, D. C To save mate rials and labor for necessary wnr pur poses, President Wilson uppealed to Americans "to buy only those things which are essential to the Individual health and clllcleucy," and to volun teer on or before Juiio 2S, National Thrift day, to Invest systematically In War Savings und Thrift Stamps, or other government securities. "This wnr Is one of nations not of armies." said the president, "and all of our 100,000,000 people must be Bcoiiotulciilly und Industrially adjusted to wnr conditions If this nation is to piry Its full part In the conlllet. Pledge Is Sought. "Tho problem before us Is not pri marily a financial problem, but rntlier a problem of lncreusod production of war essentials and the saving of tin materials and the labor necessary fo the support nnd equipment of 011 army and navy. Thoughtless t-xpendf-ture of money for nonessentials use; tip tha labor of men, the products of the farm, mines, and factories, und overburdens transportation, all of which must be used to the utmost and at their best for war purposes. "The great results which we seeh can be obtained only by the participa tion of young and old In n national thrift movement. I therefore urge that our people everywhere pledge themselves, as suggested by the secre tary of the treasury, to the practice of thrift; to serve the government to their utmost in increasing production In all fields necessary to tho winning of the wnr; to conserve food and fuel nnd useful materials of every kind; to devote their labor only to the most necessary tusks, and to buy only those things which are essential to individ ual health and efficiency. "Buy More U. S. Securities." "The securities issued by the treas ury department are, so many of them, within the reach of every one that the door of opportunity In this matter Is wide open to all of us. "I appeal to all who now own either Liberty bonds or War Savings stamps to continue to practice economy and thrift and to appeal to all who do not own government securities to do like wise and purchase them to the extent of their means. The man who buys government securities transfers the purchasing power of tils money to the United States government until after :his war, and to that same degree does not buy In competition with the gov ernment. "I earnestly appeal to every man, wrtman and child to pledge thomsolvoa on or before June 28 to save constant ly and to buy as regularly as possible the securities of the government. "The 28th of June ends this special period of enlistment In the great vol unteer army of production and saving here at home. May there be none un enlisted on that day." FIND POTASH IN COLCRARO Richest Vein Ever Discovered In ' United States Uncovered by a Trapper. Longmont, Colo. What geologists say Is the richest vein of potash ever uncovered in the United States lias Just been found In the foothills 11 few miles from this city. The strata was jlscovered by a trapper. It crops out 3f a rocky fault In the hills, is four feet thick at the surface and can he traced for almost half a mile. The depth of the vein has not ben deter-' mined. An assay shows the substance to run 95-100 of one per cent potash. S LATEST FAD WITH GIRLS Sweetheart Monument at Camp D ev ens Is Rising by Leaps and Bounds. Camp Devens, Mass. The "sweet heart monument" at this cantonment Is rising by leaps and bounds. Every girl who lias a sweetheart among the troops here is supposed to add a "Rock Df Love" to the monument. As the girls pnss the cantonment they select a good-sized stone and carry It to the monument site, where they heave it onto the pile. It is expected that be fore the war ends a tremendous monu ment of "Love" will be raised here. His Habit. "That barber is a surly old fellow. Dften he won't speak to me when I aieet hlra on the street." "That's only the force of habit. He's so used to cutting old ncquaint inces." , The Universal Excuse. "How did you come to put r-.nythlng so compromising as that down In black md white?" "I didn't. My mother-in-law wrote ,t In my letter when I wasn't look ing." Easy System. "I am la favor of government own ership for everything." "Why?" "Then all you'll have to do If service isn't up to the mark will be to write to your congressman about it." Commercial Comment. "The old master who painted that picture got no such price as you paid."

Bit) Never In the history of Western Canada did tho seed enter tho ground under more favorable conditions. Tti-i (venther during tho month of April was perfect for seeding operations, and from early morning until late nt ulght the seeders wero at work, nnd every acre that could be profitably sown was pluced uuder requisition. Farmers entered heart nnd soul Into the campaign of greater production. There was the time nnd the opportu nity for careful preparation, and as a consequence with favorablo weather from new on there will bo n vastly In creased yield. They renllzed It was i t'uty they owed to humanity to produce all that they could on the land, not only this ye;ir but next as well. In addition to tho patriotic nspect, they are aware that the more they produce the greater will bo their own return In dollars nnd cents. Iu many districts whont seeding wns completed by tho lst of May, after which date onts nnd barley on larger acreages than usual were plant"d. As has been said, favorable weather conditions mado possible excellent sced-bed preparation, and the seed ha pone Into tho ground In unusually good hape. The nvallable moisture In the soil has been added to by rains, which tinve not been so heavy, however, as to interfere long with the work In the'fl t'.olds. The grain is germinating read-" ily, und on many fields tho young green ''M blad03 of tho cereul are already show- ' lug. ?! An optimistic feeling prevails among farmers that Western Canada will reap a record harvest. If the season from now on Is as favorable as It hns begun, these hopes should bo realized. Mr. J. D. McGregor of the Federal Food Board, who Is alo an old and success ful farmer in Western Canada, assert ed n few days ago nt Calgary that crop conditions throughout the Prairie Provinces were excellent. "Speaking generally," he said, "the crops have never gone into the ground In better shape than this year, nnd with an even break of luck ns far ns the weath er Is concerned, there should be an enormous crop." His present duties In connection with the Food Control Board, taking him In all parts of tho. West, Mr. McGregor has exceptlonnl opportunities of observing condition all over the country.
