interfere with baseball the American

Including Hayes St. " Yves, Shrubb,

White. Doraudo, having had five
weeks rest, will also run.. ..
The race will be run on the turf out
side of tbe Infield nt the White Sox
grounds. ' There will be six laps to the
mile. Coinlskey at first declined to
let the promoters have his park, as it

Cubs m that day, but finally compro

Under tliobead of, "What do I need
for successful work" Mrs." Thornton
spoke of need of. much planning, and
of the helplessness of the periodicals,
saying that people when asked fo help,
often say iiy have so much to do
at home. ' ,. ,j
M is. , Wolfe spoke of the need of
more 'spirituality and zeal. x .

that. of. Mri. '. K, fK. Sjiepvird o Salt
Lake, who arrived last evening. What
I have seen" was the toplq of the ad
dress,. She gave many helpful sug
gestions for the tneeting anil related
how the work had grown among the
mormons of Utah, and how they had
helped in the work. Undenominational
work was the keynote of her lecture.
This can not always be adopted as a
feasible plan in all kinds of work, but
inthe fight against intemperance.it
is the only plausible plan to, follow.
Need of organization and system ala
came In: for discussloi. .
She told of her work In Oregon thj
I last two weeks, organizing four lo v'.
