C, but investigation shows that he has lieen a member of that organization over two years. Comiskey of the White Sox arises with a calamity howl that the Ked Sox are cracking. Xever ha a team been play ing better ball and never has a team been rolling more harmoniously than the Boston team is to-day. For the last two months they have lost but about a game a week. The majority of their combats have been close ones and they have had to put up a clever fight in order to come from behind before the ninth innings were closed.

Murray has been playing better ball than any other member of the Gimt cast on their western trip. His field ing has been spectacular and he has outhit his teammates. The Peerless Leader has promised Richie $100 every time he beats the Giants. It is a good thing that other tired non-energetic pitchers in the big leagues have not this offer stanJin- every time thoy enter a game. Rube Marquard, someone said, has ex cited suspicion that he again is back in form. In his last start he had evcrvv thing necessary to- win and used excel lent judgment on pitching to batters, and he held his best in reserve for tight pinches. .

In the September American Magir.ine there is an article containing a great deal of "inside information about the Chicago and Baltimore conventions. One of the interesting points brought out is the relation that existed between Bryan and the rich and powerful New York delegates. To his face they were friend ly, but behind his back they reviled him. Especial attention was paid to the al leged great fortune that Bryan lurs made. The article goes on: "It was a scandal and must be de nounced. Iduas of the extent of the scandal varied with the various notions of what constitutes fortune. South ern bankers and lawyers put it at about a million. Their more prosperous breth ren from the Nprth could not call a million scandalous and they estimated the Bryan pile at five millions. "'And every cent of it made out of the Democratic party. He has capital ized the notoriety we have given him.' If rumors of these conferences reached Mr, Bryan they must have made him pensive, for he is said to entertain a respect for the dignity of a dollar th.it would meet the approval of Mr. Rocke feller, It never occurred to these con spirators that to save even a miser able million dollars from the proceeds of lecturing and writing would be impos sible. We know little about Mr. Bryan's stock lecture except that it is said to appeal to the kind of intelligence that adored the late Ian MacLaren. No doubt be is well paid for his platform appearances. 2o doubt lie is over-puil for his writings. We admire Mr. Bryan as a public character and as a first class fighting man but we feel bound to say that if we were advising any young man who wislied to cultivate an English stylo, we should most certainly advise him to give no part of his days or his nights to the volumes of Bryan. The truth is that Mr. Bryan by very hard work with pen and open face, 1-y saving and luckily Investing has gath ered together about $200,000. The writ er personally regards this as a scan dalous fortune, but he cannot under stand why it should be so regarded by Mr. T.

"Murder in Any Degree" is the title of a story by Owen Johnson, author of "Stover at Yale" in the August Cen tury, in which the leading character of tha story, a genius who fails to pro duce, nays: "Do you know what is the great es sential to the artist to whoever creates? The sense of privacy, the pow er to isolate his own genius from every thing in the world, to be absolutely con centrated. To create we must be alone, have strange, unuttered thoughts, just as in the realms of tne aoul every hu mnn being must have moments of com plete isolation thoughts, rfvcneH, moods, that cannot be shared with even those we lovo best. You don't under stand that." "Yes, I do." "At the bottom we human being come and depart absolutely alone. Friendship, love, all that we instinctive ly seek to rid ourselves of, this awful solitude of the soul, avail nothing. Well, what others shrink from, the artist roust seek."
