Following the tokauet. there - was a program of UUt and J. W. Houder, president of the Head Office Chiefs association, In OTdnced A. A. Burt, chief of the sup ply department, as toastmaster. Mr. Bart began by announcing that. In view of Mr. Munger" well known ad miration for and Interest in baseball, ths program would be carried out with 4ae reference to the great American putime; that he would act as "pitcher" gsi that Mr. Munger, assuming the odtioB of "shortstop" would be Jrlrfleged to field all "fair balls" that night come his way, and if possible, rat the "batter" out at first It was Jgpolated, however, that all "foul tips" osld be outside of his field and that U should not pay any attention to Qem. Following the baseball nomen eUtnre, the toasts were responded to u follows: -Better Tp" F. B. Hawes Bate Hits and Strike Outs" M. T. Stevens Errors" ....... ......... H. C.

The toast "Fielder's Choice," re sponded to by Mr. Houder, gave op portunity for him to present to Mr. Hanger a handsome Morris chair, which he was invited to use, if he erer bad time to sit down after turn tat farmer. The retiring chief audi tor accepted the gift and invited the Conors to come and eat chicken with tlm whenever they should have the opportunity. While strong regret was expressed by his associates over Mr. anger's departure from the head of 4ee, they nevertheless felt that be had earned a change by his many long years of faithful and efficient service in the interests of the Modern Woodmen and tbeir best wishes accompany him to his new scene of activities. Mr. Man ia declared that he intended this to f. '. .- . wS J Charles F. Brooker. Charles F. Brooker of Litchfield. Conn is one of the New Haven rail road directors who have been sued for 1306.000,000 by minority stockhold ers of the road. The suit followed closely after the report of the inter state commerce commission, which al leged that the directors of the New Haven had wasted many millions of the road's money. The . minority stock holders claim that the amount wasted in illegal transactions was $102,000. 000. Under the Sherman anti-trust act, the New Haven company is en titled to recover from the defendant directors three-fold that sum, or $306,-000,000. be his "last move" and that be hoped to fin '.ih out his days ts an Illinois farmer, as Illinois farmers are said to be the luckiest men men on earth. He will be accompanied to his farm in Ogle county by his daughter. Miss Nina, who will make her home there for the present. The nature of the offerings served up by the pltcher-toastmaster afford ed an opportunity for many "hits de livered in the best of humor, of course, and, as usual, the "errors" dished up ly Mr. Hunt, of the mail opening de partment, proved entertaining in the niches drgtce. A large number "struck out" when they faced the pitcher's "drops and in-shoots." re fusing t suing at any of his tempting offerings, but whenever a batter "con nected." he at least drew a base hit. There were no "fouls" and no one had to be put rut of the game for un gen tlemanly conduct on the field. As Mr. Munger now leaves to join the "Farm ers' league." his erstwhile teammates in the WNoraen office have the ut i.'ost corf.de nee that he will make good and that nothing in that league will prove too hot for him to handle.
