Frank Chance, manager of tha Chi cago Nationals, is tha David Uarutn of baseball. The leu dor of tha Cub baa pulled off more successful deal ' than any other bl( league pilot and baa never made a bad one. Chance, irtth Charley Murphy's assistance, be gan to dicker for players to strengthen the Cubs In 1905. HU first big deal was when he hypnotised Si Louis Into parting with Mordecal Brown and Catcher O'Neill for Tltcher Jack Tay lor, now pitching In the Central league. Taylor was about at the end of his big league string, but St. Louis did not realise It no more than it did that It had a great pitcher In Three Fingered Brown, Catcher O'Neill along with Pitcher ' Ffeffer, aoon found his way to Boston.

The latter had been a star for ' the Cubs, but amounted to- but little thereafter, while Stelnfeldt shone on the Cub Infield for years 1 That same year Chance traded Pitch er Bert Briggs. Third Baseman Casey . and Outfielders McCarthy and Maloney to Brooklyn for Bheckard. The latter Is still a star member of the Cabs, while the others passed below the big league horlson several seasons ago. Along In the middle of the 1900 sea son Chance got Garry Herrmann In a . trading mood again and unloaded Bob Wicker on him and relieved Garry of Orris Overall.

He had on band a bonch of minor , league recruits and unloaded Short stop Tony Smith. Outfielder Davidson and Hap Smith on Brooklyn, getting In exchange Pitcher Mclntire. The latter won thirteen and lost nine games, while none of the men traded has stuck to the big show. A little later Ludevus, Chance's first base understudy, was dispatched to Philadelphia for Pitcher Foxen. This was one deal which did not prove to ? be very beneficial from a Chicago standpoint, as Loderua has been a win ner for the Phillies. On the other hand. Foxen has not been of much ac count aa a Cub and was released re- i cently. - On the day when the Chicago team was about to depart for the south to : train last spring Inflelder Scotty lu ge rton, who had reported to accom pany the team on Its training trip. ; waa sent with Pitcher Pfeffer to Bos ton for Inflelder 8bean, a star utility man. Ingerton has batted well for Boston, but Chance seems to be satis fled with Shean, who Is a hlgb class player. All of which leads up to the last deal pulled off by Chance, a trade ', which baa shown that Chance has lost noiie of hts cunning aa a dealer In athletic chattels. No wonder that Bos ton fans as well as Vice President Paige are yelling murder. KUng, now on the toboggan; Weaver, an ordinary pitcher; Griffin, an untried pitcher, and Kaiser, far from a wonder as an outfielder. In exchange for Graham, a ' catcher who Is good now snd who la Improving; Wilbur Goode, a hard hit ting outfielder, who seems to have Im proved aa a fielder since he was a ' Nap; Cliff Curtis, a fair pitcher, and Collins, of whom bat little Is known. In other Words, Chicago traded KUng tor Graham and Curtis, aa they are the only players in the deal worth consid eration.'; y ! -.yum. v.

SPRINGER CopyrtaM by Amwk-m Preaa Asae clatlon. Ull. My friend Mrs. 8outbwlk wrote me to come down to ber country place. She said she had an especial reason for asking me, but didn't tell me wbst It was. So one midsummer morning took a train to make the visit. On reaching the statlon-l was not x pected till an hour later not finding a conveyance to meet me. I concluded to leave my baggage at the statiou and walk. Never baring been to Mrs Soutbwlck'a place before, I waa ubibied to Inquire the way and waa put on to a abort route, at the end of wbleb I could enter the grounda at the nr On arrival 1 climbed a fence and walked some three or four huudod vard to a clump or trees, which wii so turn ing that 1 concluded to penetrate It. Bight in the middle there was swung a hammock, and In the hammock lay a young girl asleep. Now, a young girl aaleep In a bam mock la a pretty sight at any time, but Of pretty and In a shaded nook she Is tempting. This one wss very pretty. There waa about her that relaxation artists love to get in tbelr pictures and statuary. There was a slow beavtni: of her breast Her mouth was partly open showing a narrow line of Ivory be tween a pair of pink coral lips. Well, though the natural conse quence of a young man seeing a girl thus defenseless before blm Is that be cannot resist the temptation to kiss her and get bis ears boxed not tor his palna. but his pleasure I will en deavor to describe what happened. I advanced a step at a time, and with every "p "TTtrl I ,nnk tln "ack. ward In my resolution not to aisoon- estly a tea! what did not belong to me I reached a point bat a yard from the alee per wit bout waking her. 8be was slumbering so calmly that for some time I dared not proceed farther for fear of awakening her. Had ahe alept more soundly I might have been bolder. But while halting 1 waa grad ually filling with bravery or reckless ness. As aoon as I bad gathered enough courage for the purpose 1 ad vanced another atep or two. halted, then bent down to see bow near 1 could bring my face to hers without wakening her. then touched my It pa lightly to hers. Beyond a alight spssmodlc move ment she remained the same. Within a single moment I experienced dread and reassurance. The girl alept on. and L having achieved my purpose, be came suddenly - conscious - of the frightful risk I had ran and was seised with a desire to escape the con sequences of my offense. I withdrew aa atealthlly aa possible and proceed ed to the boose. I waa received by Mrs. Southwlck with a hearty welcome, and we sat down together oa wicker chain on the piazza. "And now that you are here," she said, "and while we are alone I will give you my reason for inviting you down. 1 have" a wife picked out for you." "A wlfer "Tea, a very lovely girt modest, un assuming, pretty Indeed, everything that la maidenly." "And all tela la for mer "Tea. bat yoa must proceed with her very slowly. 8 he Is sensitive, pare. The least advance before an offer of marriage would undeniably abock her." "For beaven'a saker I exclaimed In wardly. "Suppose she should be the girl asleep in the hammock I Ti f-TlTIriinTi1iiiiTi modeatv." con tinned the go-between, "that is Edith's chief charm. I am sure that alone Is enough to make yoa love her." "1 dare say." I replied, with proper politeness. When 1 was presented to Miss Edith Greer I felt the guilt of Judas Iscartot welling op In me. I grew red and pale by turns. 1 stammered out a few words that didn't mean anything. I sat down before she or Mrs. Sooth wick bad seated herself and Jump ed up as if I had encountered a tack on the cushion. Mesnwhlle Miss Greer stood with ber eyes bent on the floor ss If 1 were the first young man ahe bad ever met. Mrs. Sootbwick came to the rescue by Inviting as Into the dining room for luncheon. The fact that the young lady dis played no such embarrassment aa she might have done bad she been sensi ble of the kiss 1 bsd stolen, that she neither appeared abocked nor indig nant, brought a return of confidence. I found ber rather too unsopblatlcated; but. as Mrs. Southwlck bad said, ber modesty was ber chief charm. Aa I noticed this 1 shuddered at rhe enor mity of my offense In pressing those pure lips with mine and gave frequent thanks that the piracy had not been Je tec ted. Mrs. Southwlck made the match sbe intended. The only difficulty In the way was that the young lady was sj sweetly Innocent that It seemed a sacrilege to me to propose to her. I finally got out a proposition, and. though at first ahe aald she was too young and loo Inexperienced to trust herself to any man. since sbe regard ed me the soul of bonor she would ccmmlt herself to my keeping. The denouement of a love story usually comes with a wedding. In this case It comes at a tin wedding. "What a modfast little thing yoa were, my dear," 1 said, "when we were married this day ten years sgo.'- "Rats!" she exclaimed. "1 waa lay ing In wait for yoa in that hammock and waa wide awake wann you kissed me." .7' CeveHne His Tracks. Mr. Gllbort Chesterton gave public ity to au amusing reminiscence.

BY GALA THRONG (Continued from Page 1.) of them were enlisted In Ua cause Continental Congress waa established, the Declaration of Independence, the most masterful piece of literature of ita kind the world has.eer-een, was drafted and signed. The formal de claration of war waa made, the army centralized and General George Wash ington put In command. And when the news of this came to the ears of hia Majesty. King George, he said, "What, have my subjects rebelled?" His Informer replied- "Rehellli'" Us hell, it's revolution." This uneven contest waged for seven long years, on the one hand there was power, money, plenty of soldiers fully equipped with arma and supplies; on the other hand, there were scarcity in numbers, lack of funds, arma and even the bare necessities of life. The British hired Hessian sol diers, who fought for the money they were getting and because they had to do it. There waa no heart or aplrit of loyalty In their actlona. The Am ericans fought for a purpose, fought for the love of country, and that tney might be free. Their loyalty can only be measured by the hardships they endured: their' blood stained foot prints at Valley Forge, their expedi tions In the face of hunger against Fort Quebec, . their midnight cap ture of the Hessians at Trenton, their turning of defeat Into victory at the battle of Brandywlne, show us that their courage waa undaunted and their patriotism unbounded. They fought for a purpose, and they won,-won be cause they were right Rule-orWnga-Bihtahed.- From thirteen weakly colonies scat tered along the Atlantic shore, a new nation waa born. It waa baptized In the blood of Its own native sons and christened the United States of Am erica. The seeds of freedom sown by Patrick Henry, John Hancock, Samuel Adams, General Washington and oth ers, had taken root and grown into full maturity, and the rule of kings waa banished forever. Ladles and gentlemen: Although the Americans had won their Inde pendence, and severed themselves for ever from the tie of British rule, yet, let us bear in mind that a great deal remained to bo done. The Constltu tion had to be drafted, a permanent government established and the Union formed. There were thirteen Indepen dent colonies loosely connected to gether, each colony wanted to be fore- mo8tneUx..leaLtuiitir silntna littw'ew them. Perhaps each colony wanted to furnish the first president. A- Con stltutlonal Convention waa held, and In that convention, there were twd factions: one leaned toward Demoo racy, and the other more toward Ab solutism. Their differences of opinion were debated in every conceivable manner, and for a time, an agreement seemed Impossible. At last, by the adoption of various amendments, to the drafted form aa submitted to the convention, the Constitution was adopted, ratified and the government permanently formed. Little did those Constitution builders realize that they were framing an instrument that would permit the growth of our coun try from thirteen weakly colonies to its present dimensions and greatness. They probably did not realize that they were framing an Instrument des tined to be pronounced by Interna tional law writers, as one of the best and freest ever written. Little did they realize that that constitution would bo elastic enough to extend fur- ther than governing the people on a narrow strip of territory on the At lantic shore; Instead, It has extended not only to the great lakes on the north, to the Gulf of Mexico on the south, and to the Pacific Ocean on the west, but It has extended thousands of miles into Alaska, Porto Rico, Ha waii ana even to the Orient, to the continent across the seas. First to Bring Message. We have been talking of the great ness of the Constitution lot na nnw turn to the Declaration of Indepen dence and think of Its Immortal truths. When 135 years ago, our fore fathers brought the message to the world that all men are created free and ealial. and no cnnrnmml n stand strong and powerful without me approving voice or an undivided people, they brought forth an Idea which no nation on earth had uno. tloned or even thought of. But When came these Immortal truths of the Declaration? Did they find them In hlstorv? No niH th find them In the classics? No. Long, long years aao when tha nllorlm rath. era first landed on our shores there was Instilled within them this spirit of freedom and Inrtnnenriano Th. country was new, but as nature deals with plant life, so with men and Ideas. A change of soil and environment may rmaru arowin tor a period, only to take deeper root, tn finnH.i, nn and spring forth with better and brighter results. It took 150 years for this principle of freedom anil nuoii to develop, it germinated In the hearts of our pilgrim fathers, It grew up with them In this new world and furnished the eanr tnr t. - - .uv uw.iaiw tlon of Independence. The doctrine of government of the people, by the peo pie and for the people was thoroughly established, that today we do not de bate It but announce It a truth self evident. That darlaratlnn I- t, .1.1- deed of the human race.

Its growth baa been so thrifty and Its progress so rapid, that It la almost Impossible for the statistician and historian to keep pace with ita atep.

Even our own moth er, England, has folly realized that her prodigy has outgrown the parent Not only can we boast of our growth and progress, but our power, wealth and commercial supremacy must also be considered. We hare advanced from a weakly nation, whose money, the greenbacks and notes of Continen tal Congress, wore not worth five cents on the dollar, were not worth a continental, to a nation whose credit Is unlimited, and whose money goes at par the world over. Our power Is a recognized factor In the continent of the old world, It Is an exponent In the shaping of the destinies of na tions. 1 Education Open to All. Think of the high plane of educa tion and morality our country enjoys. wnere can you go today within the borders of our native land and not aee the steeples of school houses and churches, extending their pointed pin nacles up into the pure atmosphere of the heavens Wherever tha as of the woodman has hewn a way into the forest, these monuments of edu ucatlon and good citizenship have fol lowed, until today, the whole country Is dotted with them. Any branch of education that Is desired la available to the youth of today. The time has passed when a college education can only be enjoyed by a few.

It used to be the fashion for people seeking a higher education to go to Europe, but now, we have them com ing from Europe here. Our public schools, our colleges, our unlversV ties, our schools of technic and our denominational Institutions, are scat tered broadcast from one end of the lana to the other. The Political anil International In. fluenccs of our country are felt the wona over, in tno shaping or the destinies of nations, the United States Is always called unon to I ska a nart It fills the roll of a leader among the runng powers or the eartn.

Its Influence la the real protectorate of these small republics. Our country engaged In a war for the sake of humanity, It lib erated Cuba and gave her Indepen dence, and later wbeq disorder arose, the strong arm of Uncle Bam quieted the revolution and . compelled . obed ience to law. In the treat Rnaslan-Jananaa war when the Orient waa quaking and reeking from the roar of musketry and rannonadlng, when every conceivable European Influence had been tested to atop this swful carnage and blood shed, and had utterly failed, the Unit ed States of America, through its President and peacemaker, Theodore Roosevelt, and his policy, commonly called the "big stick,'' brought hostili ties to sn end, bloodshed ceased, the difference of tha two bellgarenta were settled by diplomacy, tha war was stopped and the dove of peace perched Itself on the cannon's mouth. When ever civilization has gone and that grand old flag, the emblem of free dom, has unfurled Ita folds to the balmy breezes, law and order have prevailed, and underneath Its in fluence and protection, the dove of peace has hovered. Country In Ita Infancy. . After we have reviewed the treat (TAASS www ness of our country, and recalled Its power and Influence, yet we must realize that It Is only In Its Infancy. Its prospects for the future are bet ter and brighter than they ever have been In the past. It la developing to day at a more rapid pace than It ever has before; there are more Inventions, more railroads, more commerce, and more money than In the past A greater advancement Is Inevitable and with this greater advancement and enlarged growth, there Comes to us an equal addition or duty. It rests with you and me, with the young and the old, with everyone to do hla part There never wan a case where a man's private Interest or his business in creased that his responsibilities did not do likewise!) perhaps twofold. Just aa sure as It Is true In private life, so la It true nationally, if wa waot to see our great and glorious country continue In Its adviinrement, and gain even by greater strldea than ahe has n the past, we must put our ahoulder to the wheel, and do all that duty d" mands, all that a within our power. , At present, our country Is not at war. The times do not demand that we go forth upon the field of battle !nd-i5!r tne, rnor of our country, as did the soldiers of the Revolution ary and Civil wars. But If our coun try should engage In war with some foreign country, Japan, for Instance, for the control of the Pacific Ocean, and the call should come that yoa go forth and defend the honor of your country and native land, that same patriotic spirit which boiled within the veins of the veterans of '76 and '6J would Impel you tn r,-.v fer yourselves the same living sacrl. i. l : r OI 'our country!
