Marking the Bride's Linen

WHEN a bride starts work on her household linen — the process of marking — there are several questions that arise. She may be at a loss to just what initials to place on the linen, she may not know the correct size letters to use on the various pieces, or where to place them. These problems have been confronting June brides for years and years, and often it takes considerable [delaying?] to bring out the desired [blurry].

It is the custom to always mark a bride's linen with the initials of her maiden name. Of course, it is possible that fashions may change— although never radically—regarding the size or the placing of the letters, but the rule of using the bride's initials has never been altered and probably never will be. She may use one or two, just as she pleases; but she should use neither letter of her new name. Through the ages it has been the custom to place the initials of the maiden name on all linen, for the simple reason that while the linen is being prepared the maid still retains that name. She has not taken up her married name, and therfore the linen is really given to her while she is unmarried.

At present the letters of a tablecloth should be approximately two inches in length, and the letter should come just within the edge of the table. On a square cloth the initial should be placed at one corner, but almost any location will answer for the round cloth. Napkins are always marked in one corner, usually about three inches from the edge, with the letters about three-quarters of an inch in length. Sheets are always marked on the upper edge in the center, three inches from the hem, and the initials

[article continues on middle section, column 2]

should be about two inches in length.

In most instances pillow slips are marked to match the sheets in letters from one inch to one and onehalf inches in length. It is a rule to mark sideboard cloths with the letters from one to two inchese in length. The letters are placed in such a manner that they may be seen on the sideboard. They may be located at one end and half way across the cloth. If the sideboard cloth is decorated with emproidery of the eyelet variety the inital can be worked in the same way, using a similar stitch—small eyelets and seed stiches.

Many brides of the season have taken up a [blurry] manner of marking the household linen—that of working the letters out of plain, white net. This plan is a very decorative one and is not at all hard to do. In the first place the initial to be embroid-

[article continues on middle section, column 3]

ered is stamped on the linen and backed by the net. Then the thread is taken very carefully around the angles of the letters, and then the linen is cut carefully away. All edges are buttonholed down to the linen, leaving a transperent letter outlined with very heavy buttonholling. The edges of the net are trimmed away when the work is finished.

In order to make the whole more effective, a good plan is to embroider a small wreath or spray about the letters.

Regarding the proper initials for the household linen, it might be said that the bride's initials should be placed on almost all of her possessions, especially those received before her wedding. She should not forget that her maiden initials should be placed even on her going-away trunk and suitcase.

Mr. Justwed Has a Hundred Thousand Dollars - For One Minute

That there could be any possible connection between the making of money and a little domestic squabble meams scarcity evident. Oh, no, not making in the sense of earning for, ye gods and a little [blurry] aren't nearly all domestic misunderstandings based upon that fact—not in the sense of actually manufacturing money. The Justweds found the connection the other day while sight-seeing in the Bureau of Engraving and Printing at Washington whither, you recall, they had gone for a little Springtime jaunt.

Not that money itself nor the making of it was responsible for the little difference—oh, no. It must have been Mr. Justwed's — well —natural married man perseverances. At least, Mrs. J. is of that opiniom. In addition, she felt thoroughly justified in demonstrating for his benefit the truth of the old adage, "What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander."

For the convenience of tourists in the Capital of the Nation and to prevent vast theft by visitors they have a corps of trained guides at the Bureau to [plant?] them around the building and explain the many interesting phases of the making of our paper currency. Parties of a dozen or more are led by a guidealways a woman are led by a guide—always a woman —through they rooms where the dies are engraved, where the printing is done, where it is packed in special boxes to be carried to the Treasury. The guides are, naturally, only human and their explanation can be either perfunctory or extremely enlightening. Much depends upon their frame of mind and the people in their respective parties though, to be rare,

[article continues on top section, column 3]

enough to show frequent repetition can cover the subject by rule without even thinking about it.

As such Mr Justwed must needs make himself a little different from the rest of the party, assume a portion of the management of the affair

[text split by image of Mr. Justwed and the guide]

She made a hit with Mr. J. instantly.

and in the vernacular, "start something." He did—from the insight he saw the guide detailed to conduct the party of which the Justweds were interested spectators.

She was an exceedingly fetching guide. She wasn't old and she hadn't been in the Government service long

[article continues on top section, column 4]

enough to show the unmistakable earmarks of the grind of it all. She was pretty, dainty, stylish, what you will. This point is she made a hit with Mr. J. instantly.

But this is just between us two, for naturally, Mr. J wouldn't admit it for

[text split by image of Mr. Justwed and the guide]

a minute. Husband like he explained to Mrs. Justwed later that he was "jollying her along" solely to secure better service for the—ahem— entire party!

Mrs. J. even agreed that such magnanimity was indeed commendable but inquired immediately if he didn't think a man bad to possess a pretty big bump of conceit to imagine his presence could produce that effect upon a woman who sees a hundred or so men every day! Whereupon—but that was the aftermath, not the incident.

"Come this way, please," said the pretty guide to the party as a whole, in quite her most efficient tone. Nor did she cease at any time to be official; the other was entirely on Mr. Justwed's part. None of them over do.

"Certainly," answered Mr. J., taking the request entirely to himself. And he placed himself directly at her side as she led them down the long corridor.

When she showed them a case of [dies?] from which money was printed Mr. J. was right at her elbow with a dozen or more questions. And when she then led them to an elevator to be lifted to the floor on which the printing is done who was it stood aside gallantly and insisted that she enter before he did? Who? Why, Homer Justwed to be sure!

He wanted to know all about the ink. How it was made, why it was green, did it permanently stain the fingers, could it be manufactured by any one except Uncle Sam? To all his quaries the guide gave him courteous, pleasant, formal answers— that's what she was paid to do!

Then he self-[blurry] spokesman for the party—evinced extreme interest in her work. Was it tiresome? How long were her hours? How many guides were employed? Did she ever have "frank" people to deal with? What—some fresh ones, too! Well, well!

That proved too much for Mrs. J— who had followed along quietly with the rest of the party all the while. She bit her lip, ground her heel in the floor and vowed to get even with Mr. J.

Then the fair guide led them to the

[article continues on top section, column 5]

room in which the pages of printed notes are assorted, counted and bundled ready for delivery to the Treasury Department. Mr. J. at once became an animated interrogation mark. He explained that he was accustomed to seeing money in large

[text split by image of Mr. Justwed and the guide]

quantities since he was cashier of a bank in his home town. But he acknowledged this beat anything he had ever seen before.

Was any of it ever stolen? What— every single bit of paper, printed and unprinted, had to be accounted for each night before any of the employees were allowed to leave the building? Well, well—that was indeed worse

[article continues on top section, column 6]

than having to balance the books every evening. Did she —

But at that point the dainty guide interrupted to lift a pile of notes from the table on which they reposed and explained to the party that any one who wished might hold them for a minute or so—just "to see how it feels to have a hundred thousand dollars in your hands at one time."

Obviously, Mr. J. would have been the first to try it—but a grinning countryman, his eyes wide with wonder, beat him to it. Several of the women in the party screamed in mock dismay as they gingerly supported the small fortune for a second or two. Then it was passed to Mr. J.

"Hey, [Blossom?]," he said, turning to find Mrs. Justwed. "If we duly had an airship now we'd sail right out of here and—"

But Mr. J. was not in the party!

Mr. J. gasped a moment and suddenly lost all interest in the hundred thousand and the guide.

For there, in the room they had just left, was Mrs. Justwed deep in conversation with a lusty, handsome young printer who was solicitously and eagerly explaining to her the gentle art of printing the currency of the realm!

That she was immensely interested was plainly evident from her close attention and the sweet smiles with which she rewarded his efforts every now and then.

Indeed, it was only after Mr. J. had called her name three times that she looked up.

Then she remarked much as one does when interrupted at a pleasing task, "Oh, is it you?"


[top section, column 7] Fashion Note

The art of dreaming will come chiefly in choosing from his the numerous styles which offered for consideration names that will suit the individually of wearer.

With a couple of tub frocks the [woman] with a moderate dress allowance [will] always be well attired on sum[mer] mornings and if these are kept st[rict-] ly for outdoor wear it is astoni[shing] how long they will keep fresh, [and] they save the afternoon frocks immensely. A smarter version of cotton frock is in mercerlized and foulard, which comes in dull p[astel] blues and grays made with a b[ib] top and hem of self-color, which exactly like foulards.

Silk covered hairpins are a nov[elty] and have the great advantage of [not] slipping out of the hair. They [are] made in eight shades—gray, and two shades of golden and four [shades] of brown. They are becoming [more] popular every day. ---------------------------o--------------------------- Shields for the Kimono Sleev[es]

EVERY woman has experien[ced] the difficulty of imperling dr[esss] shields in a kimono sle[eves,] blouse or bodice. The shields [will] not lie flat, even when sewed in several places, and the drawing the sewed in shield is sure to [have] the effect of the outside of the bl[ouse.] A resourceful little woman has [come] upon a clever idea. She takes lingerie blouses that have begun [to] show signs of wear around the sh[oul-] ders; cuts off the sleeves above [the] elbow and removes the collar, [cut-] ting away the blouse at the top [of] a corset cover. In this lingerie she sews the shield securely and [the] outer blouse is protected without [be-] ing pulled or drawn by having [the] shield sewed to its fabric.

Facts Concerning the Baby

GREAT care should be exercissed in the bathing of the baby. The bath usually consists of an application of olive oil, and as soon as the baby is born it is wrapped warmly in a soft blanket. During the oiling process, only one portion of the tiny body is exposed to the air at a time. In this way chilling is avoided. Only one or two tablespoons of olive oil are necessary for the bath. This is slightly warmed and is applied to the skin with a soft cloth. Then it is wiped off with another soft cloth, and the skin is found to be clear and clean. For the first few days of its life the baby should be oiled every morning, and the eyes treated with a boric acid solution. When King Baby is two weeks old he may be given a

[image of woman pushing stroller down street, spans cols. 5-6]

[article continues on middle section, column 6]

[blurry] milk every morning. But the tub bath should be avoided for a longer time in case the baby is poorly nourished, the olive oil baths being kept up for a longer time.

A baby's stomach is a very delicate instrument, as most mothers have discovered, and thus there is a necessity for a strict diet. The very young baby is unable to digest much except milk, and if the stomach is constantly imposed upon by being forced to take foreign substances, it rebels and will never do its work properly. Improper food often causes sickness and death, while in other cases the stomach may be permanently injured. Until a baby is fully a year old, it should live almost entirely on good, pure milk.

It also requires a moderate amount

[article continues on middle section, column 7]

of water each day. Physicians [agree] that the only addition to the [diet] should be a teaspoonful of juice once a day, after the baby [is ?] months of age. When the baby [is a] year old a little prune juice or of baked apple may be given each day. Gradually other articles [of] food may be added to the diet. These must be things that are [easily] digested by so tender a stomach. [The] baby should be urged to drink [plenty] of water between meals, but it sh[ould] never be given ice water.

Special care should be taken in [the] selection of the milk for the [baby.] In case it is cow's milk, it should [come] from a reliable dairy. Those who [have] made a study of baby food [blurry] milk from Jersey or Guernsey cat[tle is] usually too rich for babies. The [milk] must be kept strictly clean and [free] from contaminating odors. [Bottle] and milk pans should be [soaked] every day with hot water in whi[ch a] little baking soda has been [blurry]. Afterward they can be rinsed in [clean,] fresh water. Absoslute [blurry] the care of the milk is temperat[ive.] ---------------------------o--------------------------- FOR KITCHEN APRONS.

WHEN making aprons for kit[chen] wear it is a good plan to [add] an extra thickness of the [ma-] terial just across the front below [the] waist, as this part of the garment [??] elves the greatest wear. Then, [when] the outside becomes thin, there is [a] patch all ready and faded to the [same] shade as the apron. This plan [can] also be carried out to advantge [when] making sleeves for children's dr is the little elbows soon c through.

Afternoon Cards.

Miss Clifford Irvine charmingly entertained on Saturday afternoon, this being a pretty compliment to Mrs. William Gilreath's house guests, Mrs. W. E. Adams and Miss Allen from Thomaston, Ga., Mrs. Tiller, of Washington D. C., and Miss Hines, of Atlanta.

The Irvine home on Hampton avenue was thrown open and was particularly attractive with the added beauty and fragrence of quantities of Dorothy Perkins roses which were sent from Miss Addison's exquisite flower garden. There were pale vases of lovely sweet peas in all thick delicate colors.

Before the game was begun a most refreshing punch was sered by Miss Cordelia Moore, who also assisted Miss Irvine in scoring. An enthusiastic game of progressive euchre was played, after which the cards were cut for the consolation, which was won by Miss Eleanor Furman, she with the honor guests each receiving a lovely cottage bouguet of sweet peas.

An ice course was served on the card tables.

This was one of the most enjoyable of the lovely affairs given by Miss Irvine, who entertains with a charming grace and ease of manner.

Her guests included, besides the honor guests, Mrs. Frank Robinson, Jr., Mrs. Fred Eubanks, Mrs. Thomas McAdoo, Mrs. Richard Sullivan, Mrs. Harry Harris, Misses Hattie and Sarah Rowley, Miss Eliza Killian, Miss Elaine Thompson, Miss Eleanor Furman, Miss Stuart, of Virginia, Misses Virginia and [Bug?] Morris, Miss Lucy Poe, Miss Lurin Bean, Miss Theodora Hayne, Miss Rita Richardson, Miss Corinne Goodlett, Miss Eudora Ramsey, Miss Louise [cut off]

MRS. POWELL IS NOW HAPPY ----------o---------- Her Miserable Experience For More Than Four Months Enables Her to Appreciate Good Health. ----------o---------- Dry Ridge, Ky.—"I am so happy," writes Mrs. Lydia Powell, from this place, "to be well. I was so poorly that I was almost dead. I had a pain in my left side. My stomach was weak and I was just a skeleton! Our family doctor treated me for four months, but I did not get any better.

I had heard so much about Cardui, the woman's tonic, that I thought I would give it a trial. Now, I am thankful for wonderful help I have received from it. I believe if I had not taken Cardui, I would have been dead or crazy now. My health is very much improved.

When I commenced to take Cardui, I could hardly walk across the room. Now I can walk four miles and do my work with a great deal more ease. I will always recommend Cardui to all suffering women. I owe my life and health to Cardui, and I cannot praise it enough for the good it has done me."

Cardui has a record of more than 50 years' success as a medicine—a tonic—for weak, tired, worn-out women.

Suppose you try it. It will help you.

[second column] Thomas W. Lawson, author of "Frenzied Finance," an unusual man in many respects, has announced his candidacy for the United States senate from Massachusetts to succeed Murray Crane, who will not offer for re-election. The announcement of the latter that he would retire was made only last week and Mr. Lawson immediately threw his hat into the ring. My mony, Mr. Crane's announcement is looked upon as a concession of his defeat and that of the administration. In the Massachusetts primary, he was a candidate for delegate at large to the Chicago convention on the Taft ticket and he was defeated by a very large majority. He has been recognized as one of the Taft administration's strongest friends and it is quite likely that this endorsement which Massachusetts gave to Roosevelt was interpreted by him to mean his own downfall. Rather than be kicked out, he decided to step out. Thomas Lawson is known the world over. His career has been an exceedingly checkered one. An exchange says of him: "Commencing native life as an office boy in a broker's establishment, he had thorough drilling in the art of manipulating stocks; and filled with the spirit of gambler, freesharer, and adventurer, with a remarkable intelligence, and having an unusual state of energy, he charged headlong into the Wall Street game and won millions. Later, with the same aggressiveness he entered the magazine field and wrote numerous articles on the operations of Standard Oil magnates. The social object of his attacks was Henry H. Rogers, famous in big finance and an the builder of the Virginian railway. In this campaign of confession and [denumciatise?] he attracted widespread [stintile?] and for a while was one of the most talked of men in the country. "Lawson is many times a millionaire, a veritable product of the bucket shop, but a man of undoubted talent and exceptional mortal capacity. In point of ability he is probably Crane's superior, and while the owner of a vast estate, he would not lack in sympathy for the [cases?] or causes of the people. To citizens of conservative views and strange restraint, Lawson's candidacy will not applea; but there are others, and the number of them is not small, who will regard him as well fitted for the office to which he aspires. A queer combination of qualities, some attractive and some unattractive, we have to doubt that Massachusetts will think a long time before acceding to his wishes." We hardly think Mr. Lawson a fit man to represent Massachusetts or an other state in the upper house of Congress. Should he be fortunate enough to secure the Republican nomination, which is very unlikely, it is highly probable that he would be rejected by the people of his state. The laws of this country ought not to be made by a man who has lived in the past as Lawson has lived. -------- ROOSEVELT IN HISTORY Theodore Roosevelt, as he will go down in history, will be greatly different from the Theodore Roosevelt, who is today so greatly admired in some of the states of the nation. The [???] will be the attendance of official data in the arches of the Department of Justice in Washington which shows beyond successful contradiction that Roosevelt is allied and always has been with the "tar-mucking interests" the same interests which are now innaming with a [??] hand his campaign for the nomination. Although the ex-president, past repeater of politics that he is, may be able to lead thousands of voters to believe that he is really against and independent of the great industrial trusts which are ever tightening the screws on the American public and sending up prices; even though Mr. Roosevelt may be able to temporarily find the majority of the people in this regard and be again nominated for the presidency, he will not be able to fool historians. The data at the Depatment of Justice, revealing his refusal to bring vriminal prosecution against Geo. W. Perkins for organizing the illegal harvert trend, will be considered with the [powers] statement of the Roosevelt campaign committee in New York showing Perkins contributing thousand of dollars in the attempt to return Roosevelt to the White House. This chain of strong circumstancial evidence, showing, first, Roosevelt, shielding Perkins from the probability of a jail sertence and, second, the millionaire harvester trend, [??] showing his appreciation by contributing his tainted dollars to Roosvelt's campaign fund, must surely be commented upon by Roosevelt's historian. History will have to that during all the time he was in the White House, as well as when running for a third term, Roosevelt and Perkins were in frequent conference. His-

[column 3] tory will show that in the years between 1905 and 1912, when J.P. Morgan's partner, showed Morgan how to dominate the boards of directors of all the great railroads, steam ship lines, express, telegraph and telephone line tanks, insurance companies and the big industrial trusts, to the end that Morgan now has a strangle hold on a corporate wealth of over thirty-five billion dollars, which is nearly one-third of the total wealth of the nation. Mr. Roosevelt's history will also relate that while he was president [Hardette K. Townsend?], one of his assistant attorneys general, investigated the harvester trust, reported that it was a monopoly of the most vitious character, that it was holding up the farmers, that all the plans fors its organization and manipulation had been conceived and executed by Roosevelt's friend, Geo. W. Perkins, and that Mr. Roosevelt's answer to the recommendation of the investigator to prosucute the trust was an order to his attorney general not to start suit, which action saved Perkins from a possible penitentiary sentence and the trust from prosecution. Not one out of a hundred person the country over knows of these facts, and it is impossible to educate all of the people on a subject like this in a short time. But Mr. Roosevelt's historians will find it all. And perhaps even more. So, although Mr. Roosevelt may be able to fool the people of his own time his acts will live against him in history! --------------o------------ GIVE THE FACTS The Greer New Leader in the issue of last week said This is about Chase the State legislature should pass some law preventing newspaper reporters from

[headline spans top section of cols. 1-3] A Few Helpful Moments With the "Get There" Club Memorial Day.

You may not care & snap about the Civil War, Horace, and you may even be indifferent to the picture of the Old Veterans marching along on May 30th to the cemeteries to decorate the graves of their dead—but just because you feel that way, because you're young and lusty and climbing up the ladder of business success is just the reason why you should stop and think a minute. We young ones are very prone indeed to minimize the value of any and everything that isn't of our own day and generation.

Now, cutting out all "fireworks" and patriotic oratory, Horace, let's get down to hard brass tacks and take a look at this Memorial Day business. Its [externals?] are a few [dot-] tering feeble old men in blue struggling along the [line?] of march on their great day with flowers in their hands and memories in their hearts of stirring days when the whole land ran blood and men's souls were tried in a [illegible] that none of us will ever have to be looked at. The bugles are playing, the flags flying and the entire country paying tribute to them and their brothers [who?] long since passed to the land where memories are no more. That's the external side of it, Horace—beautiful, just and inspiring

But underneath is a lesson that we —especially we young chaps with our minds intent upon financial troubles and battles of existence—should take home to ourselves not property as a [illegible] but as [blurry] of real importance. There where whole graves are decorated on Memorial Day are accorded that slight token of esteem because they gave their lives for a principle; because they set out to ac-

[article continues on column 2, top section]

complish, a certain [finding?] and did so. Moreover, they [blurry] through" with their hands clean! They proved themselves heroes, not weaklings, successess, not failures. Had their reputations better been [sullied?] or their achievements of doubtful character, we of today would not be holding them in blessed memory. They "came clean." Horace, they "came clean."

Why, a few weeks ago, when the Titanic disaster held the entire country horror-stricken and crushed by it terrible death toll, why did a movement spring up from the hearts of thousands to honor the heroic dead with memorial services and monuments of more lasting character? Because, Horace, the men and women over whom the sea closed its icy waters died upholding the sacred principle of heroism. Because they "came clean" in the awful test to which they were subjected. Because they performed a grim task that set the whole world reverently applauding their noble conduct.

Right now—even though no memorial of stone ever be erected to them—they have their memorial in the hearts of the millions who knew their story—and in the hearts of thousands still unborn who, in the future, will read the grim tale and marvel at their heroics.

Today isn't everything in life, Horace. There's a tomorrow, right on this earth, that will last as long as the world does. It isn't true that nothing counts after you're dead. These old fellows of the Grand Army of the Republic still live, don't they? And the Titanic's victims are right this minute an inspiration to many troubled hearts. There are other generations coming after us and they will look back to see what heritage of honor, of heroism, of manhood we

[article continues on column 3, top paragraph]

have handed down to them. The making of our memorial is in our own hands.

Each of us has his part to enact in it too. Our respective children and their children will look to us for

[article continues on column 4, top paragraph]

inspiration. Shall we disappoint them? There are many heroes in the battle of peace of the business world of [illegible]. Twentieth Century life as there were in the days of fire and sword. Are we—we young chaps—proving equal to [illegible] lead—are we "coming clean" in everything we do?

Swift punishment often leaps out of the jury-box.

The employer figuring as the defendent in a damage suit [initiated?] by an injured employee must not be surprised to find the sympathy of the jury with the plaintiff.

This is a frequent occurrence; and the employer, in many instances, is called upon in pay heavy damages.

The only effectual means of escaping the burden imposed by an adverse verdict is to secure the protection of an Ocean Employers' Liability Policy. The Corporation then assumes all of the expense and [responsibility?] incident to the defense and settlement of the case.

You can equip yourself with this safeguard at a nominal cost.

IN various countries there have occurred from time to time all sorts of "corners" to in [illegible] [illegible] to all manner of good origins.

There oppeared at [blurry] on the Sea of [Apev?], a person proclaiming himself a prophet, and as such he announced his intention of redeeming the world.

Among the [illegible] doctrine advanced by this individual was included the decree that all of his followers must retain all five-kopek pieces issued in the 1861, the year of the emancipation of the serfs. They were by reason of that [illegible] held to be holy. It was not long before the ignorant peasants of the community preserved the coins.

For an area of three hundred miles the peasants collected the "holy"

As these coins are practically not in circulation, only a few are issued. The remainder are sold by the [illegible] authorities at almost double their value for the one of [illegible]. At one time there was an [illegible] attempt made to corner Maria Theresa dollars used in all parts of Northern Africa. --------------------o-------------------- That [illegible number] soap bubbles can be produced from a pound of soap has been figured out by a mathematical genius.

Billy Laval's down-trodden Spartans were perfectly helpless out at League Park yesterday afternoon before the masterly pitching of one Gilroy. At no time did they have any more chances of winning than a onelegged man running on banana peelings would have of distancing Lonnie Noojan in a sight race. Mr. Gilry was three-fourths of the afternoon's attention and the remaining Spinners were the other fourth.

Laval sent in Pitcher Hogue, who wound up like an eight-day clock before delivering a ball. He was rapped pretty soundly, fast work on the part of the Spartans preventing a much larger score. Eddie Doak in left field shut off one or two very dangerous looking drives while Kelly grabbed a hard one or two. Joe Kipp at second saved several hits. The men of Stouch had on their swatting clothes.

Brighter than a diamond shone Ellis Blackstone in the left garden. Foul drives that other outfielders look at and wait for spectators to throw in were nabbed by him on three different occasions. Before the handsome house which used to ornament left field was moved Black could not have gotten these balls. Which shows Tommie's wisdom in having the house moved. It didn't bother the other left fielders of the league because they don't go after balls that far from the field but it did bother Ellis Blackstone who goes after everything that he can see coming down towards that part of the ball ground.

The Spinners counted first in the second inning when Goodman shot the sphere over the left field fences, amid much handclapping and shouts of joy. Two more crossed in the fourth when Lon Moojin, first up, singled, and Blackstone doubled. Goodman singled, scoring Blackstone Brown's triple in the fifth scored Gilroy with the last run.

It came very near being a gooseegg affair for the visitors. With one out in the ninth, Harbinson, ex-Columbia player, sent the ball over the fence, scoring the only run for Laval's gang The fans beat it for home in a good humor.

The pitching of Gilroy, the fielding of Blackstone Doak, Kipp and Barbare and Tommie Stouch's single were the features of the evening.

Following is the box score:

SHARPE MADE HIT COLUMBIA ----------o---------- Jimmie Sharpe, the local second baseman last season who reported to the Columbia club of the South Atlantic league last Saturday after he had been released by Savannah, made a hit with the Columbia people in his first game. Of him, The Columbia Records says:

Manager McGrew injected still another new face into his lineup by playing Jimmy Sharpe, formerly with Savannah at third base. While a member of the Indians [Sharple] had been covering the territory adjacent to the Keystone cushion, but his work at third in Saturday's game made it appear that he had been used to the position all along. Jimmy's debut was decidedly suspicions of that there is no room for doubt. His first trip to the plate was in the second inning when he poled a twobase knock down the right field line. On his next appearance he drew a pass, went but to Fox the third time up and concluded his day's work with the willow by heating out an infield hit. It is understood that McGrew intends to keep Sharpe in the lineup regurlarly just as long as he continues to deliver the goods. That should be for the balance of the season, for Jimmy's past record in the Carolina association indicates that he can swat the pill safely often.

GREAT AFFRAY AT CHARLOTTE ----------o---------- League Leaders Battled for Twelve Innings to no Avail—Contest Was a Beautiful One and Excitement Was Great. ----------o---------- Anderson and Charlotte—battling desperately for the league leadership, went twelve innings yesterday afternoon to a tie. The Observer this morning says of the game:

"Both the Hornets and the Electricians seemed to have such a disposition to tie up the score in yesterday afternoon's engagement that darkness found the two battling clubs with four runs apiece and Umpire Hickeyaid it was dark enough to quit, which it was. The event unraveled a grand specimanof pitching on the part of both Sheesley and Wolfe, the former having the shade on his opponent. Sheesley was especially effective in the fastnesses, one time retiring the side after the first two men up had reached second and third. Wolfe, however, is not to be discredited, the sample of slabbing he was offering being mighty hard to overcome.

The insects should have won. While they had to fight manfully to wrest their ancient hoodoo to the tall and unsawed, they worked like tigers for the big end of the bout. In the first inning they should have scored when Agnew beat an infield hit to the bag and Biting errored Bentley's sacrifice. These persons were moved up by Osteen's sacrifice, but neither of the mighty men of valor, Wofford or Weiser could deliver.

"Sheesley pitched one of his best games and if anybody deserved the title, it belonged to him. Wolfe was hit more freely and was in far more frequent trouble than the Charlotte moundman. It was no disgrace, however, for either club to come away as they did, the honors being about as nearly even as it is possible in baseball.

"The umpiring of Hickey was pleasing and the enthusiasm of the stands, themselves filled with ardent and devoted followers of the insects was notably continuous." --------------------o-------------------- STANDING OF CLUBS ----------o---------- CAROLINA LEAGUE.

Peters is the young spitball pitcher who is now being tried out by "Jimmie" Callahan, manager of the Chicago White Sox. The youngster appears to have everything that goes to make a successful twirler, with a good change of pace and mingled with the deceptive spitter he bids fair to land a regular berth on the Sox pitching staff. Peters stands more than six feet in height and is one of the giants of the diamond. _______________________________________ DOYLE TRIES TO STRENGTHEN ----------o---------- Manager Frank Doyle of the Greensboro club is trying to strengthen the weak spots in his aggregation. Yesterday's WinstonSalem Sentinel said:

Manager Doyle brought two new players with him. They are Mullaney, an outfielder, and Davis, a short stop. The former will be in right garden this p. m., and Davis may be given a showing at short, in which event Lorran and Titlow will adorn the bench. Mullaney is an experienced man and has played in the Virginia and Cotton State leagues. He is touted as a great [clon-?] ter and is speedy on the paths. Davis played with "Tiney" Stuart on the Atlantic Christian college team. "Tiney" thinks he has the making of a Charley Carroll.

For the game today Doyle has revised his lineup, the batting order being as follows: Richard, cf; Doyle, 2b; Clapp, 1b; Doak, 3b; Mullaney, rf; Slater,lf; Stuart, c; Davis or Titlow, ss; Eldridge or McKitheat, pitcher. --------------------o-------------------- PIEDMONT LEAGUE

PENNANT TO BE RAISED TODAY ----------o---------- Winston-Salem Unfurl to the [Breezes?] Banner Won by Good Work Last Year—Program of the Exercises for the Evening. ----------o---------- The Pennant for 1911, which was won by the Winston-Salem club, will be formally hoisted this afternoon. Concerning the exercises of the afternoon, The Twin City Sentinal yesterday said:

"The 1911 Carolina League pennant which was won by the Winston-Salem Twins, will be formally hoisted in the corner of the centerfield fence at Prince Albert park on Tuesday afternoon, with appropriate exercises which will begin at four o'clock.

"The owners of the local team are counting on a record-breaking attendance on the occasion. The crowd should easily number not less than 2,500. It is an event that has never been witnessed in this city before.

"The exercises will open with an address in front of the grandstand by one of Winston-Salem's loyal and most ardent fans. At the close of the speechmaking the Twins and Patriots, the latter finishing second in the race last year, will line up and march to centerfield, headed by a cornet band. Manager Clancy and the members of last year's team will be given the honor of hoisting the pennant on an iron pole, 25 feet in height, and placed in the corner of centerfield fence. The flag is a beauty and the officers of the association had a pole made large and strong enough to hold the 1912 pennant which is scheduled to be won by the Twins for the second time.

"On the flag appears these words:

'Champions, Carolina Association 1911.'

"President [Wearn?] of the Carolina Association and President Brandt of the Greensboro club, will be here and witness the exercises as the guests of President Apple of the local association.

"Manager Clancy's aggregation proposes to battle hard and they will be disappointed if they do not find a winning streak that will last for several weeks. They realize that the Greensboro team is here for honors too and the series should be worth witnessing.

"The management and owners of the local team appreciate the splendid patronage extended during the bad slump and they have reason to hope for larger crowds with the team going good as it is expected to be in future.

"The Invincible Peter Boyle will likely appear on the hurling line. He will be opposed by either Kidridge or McKeithan.

"The reputation of the Twins is at stake and Manager Clancy is out to sustain the good record made by his lineup last year." --------------------o-------------------- [advertisementment for Greenville Grocery]

Good business. ----------o---------- Gilroy is as steady as a seven-day clock. ----------o---------- Greensboro has a new shortstop. Davis is his name. ----------o---------- The Spinners played like champions yesterday. ----------o---------- The attendance was not quite as good as it ought to have been. ----------o---------- It did old Bull Powell good to win over some of his former team-mates. ----------o---------- Wouldn't care if all three of those Anderson-Charlotte games resulted in ties. ----------o---------- A man who doesn't enjoy a game like the one yesterday ought to see a doctor immediately. ----------o---------- The umps had a hard day of it. He gave one close decision to Greenville and four to Spartanburg. ----------o---------- Harbison got only one hit but it was over the fence and saved the visitors a shut-out. ----------o---------- Kipp played a good game at second for the Spartans. He is little but he is fast. ----------o---------- Dear old [Magvarland] is going to do the hurling today. He will probably get away with a victory too. ----------o---------- There is no truth in the report that Johnny Clancy is to join the Winston-Salem team. The Twins made New Orleans an offer for him but it was rejected. ----------o---------- Curley Brown got a pretty threebagger, scoring one. He was caught

With the addition of Taylor and Llewellyn to the pitching staff, the Spartans will stand an excellent chance of climbing from third to first place. ----------o---------- New Song Hit. Spartanburg Herald.

Some of the fans around the circuit are singing "I wonder if the Red Sox are ever going to win a game." ----------o---------- Walker Goes Home. Winston-Salem Sentinal.

Dixie Walker, who came here a week ago Saturday to join the pitching staff of the locals, left yesterday for home. In Friday's game he injured his arm in throwing a ball to first base. Feeling that he could not get in shape for some time, he decided to return home and take a years' rest. ----------o---------- The Patriots. Greensboro News.

That the Greensboro baseball club is the best proportioned among the six clubs now contesting for the Carolina league honors is the opinion of a well known traveling man who makes Greensboro his headquarters and who has seen every team of the circuit in action. This gentleman, who was speaking to and who gained the hearty endorsement of Charles H. McKnight, says that he knows a ball player when he sees one, and that he sees no reason why the local
