But the children didn't' know that Hattie was speaking to them as they stood about her cage. "Hello, Hattie," called the keeper, who came in at that moment. "Hello," called' Hattie, in elephant tones. "Well, how about some tricks to day?" asked the keeper. And all the children gathered around the keeper and said to him; "Will the elephant do some-tricks to day? Oh, won't that be fine! Oh, please ask the elephant to do some tricks, Mr. Keeper." "Well, how about it. Hattie?" asked the keeper, going into Hattie's zoo home. Hattie didn't answer, but made a tiny little noise, and taking her great trunk, knocked off the keeper's hat. All the children laughed, and the keeper said: "I guess you feel like doing some tricks today, all right," said the keeper, as he put his hat on once more, and no sooner had he put It back on his head than with another swing of her trunk and a funny little SOLDIERS CONSTRUCT OWN FIELDS FOR BASEBALL CONTESTS AND BOXING BOUTS HANK GOWDY MIGHTY FINE DRAWING CARD Manager, Stallings Figures He Is Most Valuable Asset. i i Members of First Engineers, First Division, En Route to Baseball Game. said the sergeant, "we'll " Large Back Scratcher.

Cleveland Plain Dealer. Much has been written regarding the wonderful work of the American engi neers in France both at the bases 'of the United States army and along the many connecting lines which hook up the front lines with the sources of supply. There is, however, another side to their activity which is just as praiseworthy, especially as it is gratuitous and done after ordinary working hours. It is the preparing of fields or enclosures for the soldier ath letes and without which it would be impossible to hold many of the games and contests. Baseball Field Wanted. Stories of the helpful work of the engineers in this direction are con stantly being sent back across the seas along the following lines : A Y. M. C. A. athletic director with an engineer regiment in the center of France felt discouraged regarding the outlook for sports. There was no field fit for base ball, football or even, basketball. To relieve his mind he took his trouble to a sergeant. "If it's a baseball field ED LEWIS LEARNS JIU JITSU GIRLS!

A rocky, uneven and generally deso late pasture was selected as the only possible place upon which a ball park could be built. The physical director thought that possibly, after a .year's work, something might be made of it. That was before he knew the engi neers well. It took just three days to "skin" off the field, level it, roll It and put it in condition for play, even to the building of a fine wire netting backstop and marking out of the foul lines with Hags. Place for Boxing. With the baseball field in operation It was decided to promote boxing. The drawback was that there was no place to stage bouts except the floor of the hut, and the men who wanted to read or write wouldn't stand for that. Again the sergeant was consulted. In three days he had put up near the hut as good a ring as ever held a champion ship bout. PLAYERS PREVENT FLU BY FLYING TO BATTLE When Boys Com Marching Home, Big Catcher Will Be Much Worshiped Hero Also Refused to Sell Rabbit Maranville. ' George Stallings is out with a story of how he refused an offer of $15,000 for the rights of the Boston Braves to Hank Gowdy. It seems the offering club figured Hank would be a big card for it after the war. Stallines fig ured he would be just as big a card for the Braves. So there you are. Any way the story of the offer for Gowdy, as a Boston writer tells it, has these features : Stallings laughed at the offer for Gowdy, despite the comment, freely j offered, that he was crazy to pass up J such easy coin for a player in the trenches. But the Georgian, by so doing, saved the Braves thousands and thousands of dollars. For when the boys come marching home Hank will be a much-worshiped hero, and he will bring in many, many thousands of dol lars for the Braves. He could be sold today for $25,000. The Braves had the opportunity last winter to sell both Maranville, the wonderful rabbit, who then was in th6 navy, and Hank. There were mag nates smart enough to see that either one of them, particularly Hank, would be a mighty fine drawing card after.

"Don't you have to put paper covers on these sandwiches any more?"' asked the traveler at the railroad restaurant stand. "No. The government's stopped us doing that," replied the chocolate haired waitress. "What for?" "Says we must conserve paper." "Gee! Won't Hoover let us eat pa per, either?" "Well, another trick," said the keep er, and he nuged the md of Hattie's runk, so she knew that was the signal o stand up straight on her hind legs. Then she swung the keeper up, too; ind then she slowly got down to the rround, let the keeper off, rolled over ivl then got up. The children all looked on eagerly. "More, more, Hattie," they shouted. So Hattie looked at the keeper and 'he keeper looked at Hattie and said: "They seem to like our tricks, Hattie, o we'll do a few more, eh?" And once more the elephant knocked he keeper's hat off. "Hattie means, 'Yes, we'll do some More tricks,' explained the keeper. So Hattie stood on her front feet, ind then she knelt down while the keeper got under her, and she got up once more, very carefully stepping so as not to hurt the keeper. Then the children were allowed to give Hattie some peanuts, and they didn't see at first that Hattie was tak ing as many as she coffid and not try ing to eat them at once, for fear she would miss getting a few others. She held them in her trunk as she took more, and if she had been able to speak to the children she would have said : "Gracious, goodness, mercy me ! There is no use in having a trunk if one can't store away things in it. I have no best clothes to pack away, no winter furs to store for the summer and no sum mer swimming suits to put away when winter comes around. two or three while I am getting a few more."

They were willing to gam ble with the eccentricities of old man Mars and take the chance that the ath letes would come through the big bat tle for democracy in such condition that they could hop back into base ball and play the game with their old- time dash and finish. But Stallings, W. E. Hapgood et aL were just as smart as those other base ball magnates and kept their clutches on Hank and Rabbit. It was the gen eral opinion that the Braves "were hard up" and would sell these assets. But it was a mistake, and the Braves of 1919, possibly of 1920, will reap the advantage of Stallings' far-sightedness. To be possessed of a head of heavy, beautiful hair; soft, lustrous, fluffy, wavy and free from dandruff is merely a matter of using a little Danderine. It is easy and inexpensive to have nice, soft hair and lots of it. Just get a small bottle of Knowlton's Danderine now it costs but a few cents all dru; stores recommend it apply a little as directed and within ten minutes there will be an appearance of abundance, j freshness, fluthness and an incompara ble gloss and lustre, and try as you will you cannot find a trace of dandruff or falling hair; but your real surprise will be after about two weeks use. when you will see new hair fine and downy at first yes but really new hair sprouting out all over your scalp Danderine is, we believe, the only sure hair grower, destroyer of dan druff and cure for itchy scalp, and it never fails to stop falling hair at once. It you want to prove how pretty and soft your hair really Is, moisten a cloth with a little Danderine and carefully draw it through your hair taking one small strand at a time. Your hair will be soft, glossy and beautiful in just a few moments a delightful surprise awaits everyone who tries this. Adv. ' Where the Blame Belonged.

Madden, the noted breeder and traiher of race horses, was in England some years ago, he was on a visit to Charlie Mitchell, who was training for his fight with John" L. Sullivan that was held in France, when the prince of Wales, later Edward Vn of England, walked into the training quarters. Mitchell, who was well acquainted with the prince, introduced Madden to him, and a moment later, as the prince saun tered away, Mitchell said to the famous horseman : "Well, what do you think of him, John?" "He's all right," was Madden's re ply. "He's the first man I've met in England that I didn't expect to tip." The prince overheard the remark and told the story on himself to all his friends with great delight. Times When Player Is Bound to Score Well and Then on Other Days He Simply Cannot. Every golfer has days when he Is bound to score well. No matter what he does er now he hits the ball, the result of the stroke is good. Then there are other days when, no matter how hard he tries, nothing will go right, and It often seems as if the harder you try the worse things go. The caddie stands and grins when the ball that you fondly hoped would soar through the air and come to rest in the fairway 220 yards from the tee, scoots off along the ground and wrig gles and squirms under a tuft of grass in the edge of the rough, 40 yards away. uracK or uuo it gets every one.
