Frank Chance, manager of tha Chi

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
Catcher O'Neill along with Pitcher

games, while none of the men traded

A little later Ludevus, Chance's first

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

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

There waa about her that relaxation

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

Beyond a alight spssmodlc move

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

The fact that the young lady dis

neither appeared abocked nor indig

Mrs. Southwlck made the match sbe

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

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
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

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

me approving voice or an undivided
people, they brought forth an Idea
which no nation on earth had uno.

But When came these Immortal

Not only can we boast of our growth
and progress, but our power, wealth
and commercial supremacy must also
