THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1011
David of Wales Is Just Plain Boy.
He Prefers Cricket to Pomp
l HE most talked of little boy In
matches this year. He now learns that
you have beaten all former records by
scoring 1. 000 runs curing the 'first month
of tb cricket season, as well as complet
ing more than a hundred centuries In first
clavs matches. His royal highness cannot
allow an event of such Interest to all lov
ers of our great national garce to' pass
unnoticed by blm, and he has desired mo
to offer you his hearty congratulations
upon this magnlfcent performance. I re
main, dear sir, yours truly.
Now the little prince Is Just as great
a lover of outdoor sports as waa his
lovable grandfather, and he Is an ex
cellent cricketer, so one may imagine
Cricketers are "brothers all." and it
is little wonder that the boy prince was
more flattered over his talk with
W. G., a every lover f cricket calls
the- big surgeon, than he waa with all
the pompous honors showered upon
There Is a good story told of th
prince when be was quite small. He
was attacked by a slight Illness and
was not a very good invalid. So the
nurse told him about a little girl who
was very Ul indeed, but she was slam
very patient The prince listened
quietly and said. T should like to
send her something, nursa." .
Europe today is the brand
new Prince of Wales. In the
last month he has met In the
taiost intimate -way the great men and
women of all lands, gathered at London
,to assist at the coronation of his fa
Sther. Kln George V.. but It is record
ed that the only real smile that bisect
ed his handsome little face was when
that Icinc of cricketers. Dr. William
Gilbert Grace, met and chatted with
,him and posed with him for the photo
graph shown above.
t It Is a curious thins to recall that
the prince's grandfather, the late Kins

ROYAL PRINCE AND CRICKET XING.
Edward VII.. when he was himself
Prince of Wales, sent a warm con
gratulatory letter to Dr. Grace in 1895
when that evergreen athlete had com
pleted hia "century of centuries."
To noncricktera it must be explain
ed that this means that the captain had
;made runs of 100 or more In 100 cricket
j The letter ran:
Marlborough House, Pall Mall, S. W.
June 1. 1S35.
; Dear Plr The Prince of Wales has
watched with much interest the fine scores
which you continue to make In the great i weight, education or rank.
why he gladly slid away -from medaled
and jeweled and gold laced potentates
and wandered off for a really enjoyable
talk with the "best bowler ever.".
The prince was born on June 23,
1894, but Dr. Grace was born on July
18, 1S48, and so there is some slicrM
disparity in their ages, a trifle of forty
eix years or thereabouts.
There is also a disparity in their
sizes, the doctor being a grizzled giant
of 210 pounds of muscle, while Prince
David weighs only about half that, but
"Would jotiT" she repQetf.
Tes," said the prince. "Will you give
her my statuette of Lord Roberts?"
Now, it so happened that the statuettf
was one of his great treasures.
"By all means, nurse, take It." said
the queen. "I am delighted David
thought of it. I want my children -o
learn to be unselfish."
At Carnarvon he has taken as hia
own the most unselfish of all mottoes.
"I serve." and from the heart every
admirer of manly boys will say. "God
