them a pennant winning aggregation,
according to Manager Pat Moran.
"If the fellows had thought about

would not be where they ere now,"
said iMoran In explaining .how his
team captured the National league
flag, and became contenders for the

holds good In most any 'game you

Jrto, Out. 3. The Impending re:
sumption of commercial relations
with the enemy of yesterday Is caus
ing the French public at large a good
deal of misgiving. Man would keep
the German out at all cost, but cool
er heads realize that France cannot
afford to dose the door upon a cus
tomer of a billion franca annually.
There Is however, a fairly unanimous
feeling that If the German Is to come
back to France, he mnst come back
In some recognized shape and not
ulsgulsed as too often before.
Incidents uch as the following do
not serve to put the pnbllc mind at
ease. ' A woman of good social
standing of Lille recognised yester
day, (n th rwrwm of f carter ta one

5ood reason to remember him as one
