THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. . MONDAY, DECEMBER 11, '1911.

Charge at Louisville and
Promises Fast Team.
SHOCKED AT ACTION HERE
Loath to Believe that Rork Island
Will Permit I tit Franchise to
Jack Tighe, Louisville Colonel
leader, baa returned borne from tbe
Kentucky city and will remain bere
till a further call from tbe owner of
the team. He had Intended to to to
New York to attend tbe big league
meetings there, but decided that the
trip would avail him naught, and so
came back borne. He is well satisfied
with tbe American association city
and tbe baseball spirit there. He has
some good ball material and will give
the Colonels a first division team.
Jack was very much surprised and
chagrined, too, at the news of the ac
tion of the Rock Island baseball club
stockholders. But as usual, be Is
spreading his optimism in regard to
HO TEAM, SO INTEREST.
Said he this morning: "If Bock
Island goes along without baseball
next year, the fans will realize their
loss when they want to see a game.
They may go to Davenport, but what
will be their interest? It will merely
be an exhibition and they will lose the
habit at that rate. Rock Island is as
good a ball town as any In the Three
Eye league, and though they had a bad
season last year, they generally bring
the attendance up to the top notch in
the league totals. If I bad nothing np
my sleeve today, I would grasp the
opportunity affordfd, and I think If
others would see It In the right light
tbey would too.
"Prexy Tearney realizes what a good
ball town this U, and it would surprise
me If he let it go for any other in the
state. The rivalry between Davenport
and Rork Island is such that the league
can not prosper rightly without It. in
my opinion, and I know the situation.
The business men always come to the j
support of the club In time of need,
and it will be years before there Is an
other season like the last, for anybody.

a perfumed note from one of those
who have been struck by his business-like

tbe fact that he has not learned the

It will be remembered that a short
time ago he was the recipient of a
parcel of well cooked beans. He
reports progress In the disappearance
of the -beans. He Informs The Argus
that he had 24 pretty little beans
in the box. To consume one of them
In the approved Fletcher style, re
quired 24 hours. That was all he
ate for 24 hours, and as he did not
suffer from pangs of hunger, he says
he had enough nourishment from
the little bean for the day. Figure
it out for yourself and see if 24 beans
would not suffice for 24 days at the
rate he specifies.
under such conditions, economy
would be the order of the day and

must be an economical lass, says he,
and that is what he wants. It would
only cost about $24 a year to live
and at that rate, he would save
money at a merry clip, i

years before it gets buck, especially if
tbe park is disposed of and disman

AT THE EMPIRE.
Mrs. Bob Fitrsimmons, who is sing
ing at the Empire this week, is slight
and girlish looking. No one would as
sociate her with lifting heavyweights.
But she says she left the ex-champion
because she was tired of holding him
up. "I felt like Atlas with the world
on my shoulders," she said. "Oh. am
I speaking unkindly. of him? I did not
mean to do that, I think more of him
than anyone in the world. He is such
a fine, splendid fellow. In fact, a man.
But the responsibility of trying to
make him worthy of himself became
too much for my strength. Once I
used to think, it was everything to be
rich, but I know now that peace of
mind is very much more. Mr. Fitz
simmons was generosity itself. He was
too generous. I had the responsibility
of trying to make him keep bis money.
And then there was the drink." She
paused for a moment, gulping down a
lump In her throat Then she looked
up quickly. "Oh, I don't think anyone
hi tbe world can be as sorry as Bob.
But it doesn't last. After one of his
spells he was peevish and impatient.
i Know ne loves me, but a woman
needs to be told that some times and
I used to cry and feel the responsi
bility growing more and more heavy.
The upshot of it was I am earning
my own living. i aon t make as
much as Mr. Fitzslmmons used to
give me, but I am no longer crushed
by responsibility." Mrs. Fitzslm
mons is not the strenuous Rose who
used to stand at the ringside and
urge the fighter on. She is Mrs
Julia Fitzslmmons, the ex-cham
pion's third wife. Formerly she was
one of Whitney's prima donnas and
has had a musical training in Paris
and London. She is often amused at
the stories circulated regarding her
self, but which in reality apply to
Bob's previous matrimonial adven
tures. People who go to the thea
tre expecting to behold an amazon
are astonished to see a refined slip
of a girl.
AT THE GRAND.
Louis Mann is greatly In demand as
a lecturer on topics relating to the
stage, and in many college towns his
periodic visits are hailed as Important
educational events. Mr. Mann not only
has a first hand knowledge of the
stage, its power for good and also its
limitations, but he is also a careful
student of the lite rat ore of the stage.
In his studies he has the advantage of
a thorough acquaintance with the Ger
man and French languages, and his
theatrical library is made up very
largely of volumes published in France,
Germany and Austria. ' The dialects
utilised in some of his former plays
were learned by coming in direct con
tact with original types of the charac
ters portrayed. In the character of

A LECTURE COURSE
Will Have Five Speakers in Tri
Cities Between Now and Latter
Part of March.
For years past, a lone eagle, a mag
nificent specimen of his kind, bas cir
cled through tbe air in the forest near
Aledo. In all this time no one has
ever . observed him with any other
companion of his kind. . In fact, be has
been a sort of lone monarch of the
air. In & tall pine tree, be built his
nest, where he would sit by the hour
surveying his ' domain, and Watching
for prey. He has been observed to
hang in mid-air practically motion
less for hours fit a time, waiting for
an opportunity to swoop down upon
his victim. Fanners in that region
have tried year after year to capture
him but he has been too cunning for
them, and hunters have never gotten
within gun-shot of the old warrior.
IS FINALLY CAFTrRED.
Last summer,' while swooping down
upon a rabbit, a hunter who had been
stalking him, got the long looked for
opportunity, and firing both barrels of
his shot gun, winged the eagle. Al
though unable to fly, the bird put up a
terrific fight, when his enemy tried to
take him. Finally, after the man's
face and arms were scratched and
bleeding, he was forced to summon as
slstance before he could take him.
The eagle was sent, to Rock Island
and presented to the Rock Island
Aerie of Eagles. A huge cage, 42 feet
long, 12 feet high and 10 feet wide
was built for him outside the aerie's
club rooms on Twenty-first street and
MAKES A NEW FRIEND.
The prisoner was named "Hiram
Immediately after being brought here,
Hiram commenced to decline. He has
been observed to elt for days at
time, motionless, refusing food of any
kind. It seemed as though he were
pining away In his cage, and longed
for companionship and the open air
again. Live rats, rabbits and chickens
have been tossed into the cage from
time to time in order to tempt him.
A few days ago, a live hen was thrown
into the cage. "Hiram" shot down to
clutch his prey, then suddenly stopped
and stood tip beside the frightened
fowl. The death sentence had been
suspended. Since that time, the two
have become fast friends, and any day
now a -visitor may witness the strange
sight of an Immense eagle nestled up
closely beside the hen. Since finding
a friend and companion, Hiram's
spirits have revived, and instead of
drooping way, he has now taken a new
lease on life and seems just as happy
and contented as In the old days of
