&amp;1l3S$ag!fciifitv "MOOCHA BUENO AMERICAN," SAY CUBAN FANS WHO THINK RIGLER IS "BEST EVER" GROUND KEEPER ' Charles Rigler, the National league umpire, worked in Cuba after the close of the 1911 season, in the games between the National league teams and the natives. Rigler is delighted with the country and the people. I worked in Cuba last fall and had a splendid time. When it comes to entertaining American guests, the Cubans are at their best. I got a letter from Rigler the other i day and it was amusing. ' "The other evening," wrote Rigler, "an American started a I fanfest with me. He asked me which city I preferred to work in. It afterward developed that he was a Bostonian, and naturally he expected me to reply immediately, 'Boston.' I "was in a jesting mood, and answered that I preferred to work in Havana. "He asked why I preferred Havana, and when I told him it was because' I couldn't understand a thing the fans were saying he almost keeled over. "He saw the strength ...

Aroused by the financial loss they are suffering, business interests throughout the district affected by the strike of the shopmen on the Illinois Central and Harriman lines, are demanding immediate settlement of the strike, and in the majority of cases urge that the roads concede the strikers the right of system federation. It is pointed. out that the roads themselves have one of the strongest and tightest federations in existence. At a citizens' meeting a.t Centralia last night, addressed by President J. W. Kline of the Blacksmiths' union, a resolution was adopted commending the strikers for their peaceful attitude, and indorsing their demand for the right to federate. The resol...

CUPID WINS IN CROSS COUNTRY RACEDenver, Colo.', Jan. 2. "It's no ise. Your father never will consent. Meet me, Savoy, Denver, Roland." This telegram, received by Miss Alice Clifford, daughter of Hamilton W. Clifford, wealthy stock broker, at her home in New York, Friday afternoon, started a cross country race between father and daughter, and brought about a wedding at the Spvov hotel behind locked doors and to the accompaniment of violent kicks administered to the portal by Miss Clifford's irate parent. Roland Birch, a New York stock broker, sent the telegram. Miss Clifford began packing as soon as she reveived it. She left her home without being observed, but dropped the telegram in the hallway.

m joq tgary n ' if Miss Helen Gould is the only one of the women who says she doesn't want to be a deputy sheriff. She says she has troubles enough of her own. Mrs. Young, wife of a millionaire banker, but better known as Mme. Nordica, the grand opera singer, has no doubt abou accepting. "Assuredly I shall accept." she said today. "It is only right that women should be given the opportunity to act as guardians of the peace." Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont declared that she would be more than pleased to receive her commission. The only thing at which she would draw the line, she said, would be raiding gambling' houses. "I don't think women ought to be expected to do that. But .there is plenty of other work for women deputies. The women, you see, don't want to oust the men ; they want to work side by side with them, each doing his or her kind of work." Mrs. James . Lees Laidlaw, chairman of the borough of Manhattan for woman suffrage, said she would accept the ''honor" of being a deputy, while...

ORIGIN OF THE ESKIMO Christian Leden. a polar explorer for the University of Christiana, who is in Chicago for several days prior to his return to Norway, in an interview said he was investigating the origin of the Eskimo. It is his belief that this family is of the' same branch as the American Indian. A peculiar feature of all these most northern inhabitnats is that when born the babies have skin even more white than the Caucasian. "But there is a tiny black spot in the middle of the back," he stated, "and it is this spot in which their dark complexions originate. The spot grows larger and at the same time less strongly colored ; finally, it spreads over the entire body." Here is a discovery that is worth nursing. In olden times, brass collars and other badges of servitude were used to mark the difference between master and man. Civilization, while It taught humanity a whole lot of things, did not disturb the desire to dose up the gulf between the boss and his lave. Brass collars a...

WISCONSIN THINKS PETER AND JOHN HOBBS' EDUCATIONS AT THEIR TRADES IMPORTANT 9fI4:4:4c4:C4E4:4:4!4:4:4:4:4:4;4; xJ BBBRD By W. G. Shepherd. Staff Correspondence. Madison, Wis., Jan. 2. Peter Hobbs. as we have said, was 21 years old and his ambition, as he toiled daily in the machine shop, was to be a good machinist. In fact, he wanted to be a better machinist than the men about him. How to accomplish this was a puzzle, for how could he learn from men who knew less than he wanted to know? One day a lecturer from the university extension course of Wisconsin came to the factory and from him Peter learned that the state would teach him all there was to know about the machinist's trade, for a very small fee. by correspondence. If he would get together 15 or 20 young machinists who wanted to know more about their trade, the university would send a regular teacher to them once a week, H

John Hobbs, jr., ton. '"ound out that the state of Wisconsin was anxious to make a first class pattern maker out of him. He was an apprentice in a pattern shop, but under the law his employer gave him five hours a ' week on salary to receive lessons in government, history and other school courses from special teachers sent nut by the board of education. It was a case of the school teacher following John into the factor-, but the lessons lie received promised to make a better skilled laborer out of him.

SW55H355 STREET COSTUMES WITH AUSTRALIAN CHINCHILLA - ' - -w-nirTWinT - From far off Australia comes the gray fur that is one of the fashions of this season. This pretty animal skin is used effectively on a dark brown street costume. The material is slightly flecked with cream, giving the mixed effect when seen at close vision. This costume has a bias air from the slash of the skirt. The coat is lapped well on to the side where it fastens and the buttons of this garment extend on a diagonal line with those on the skirt. The Australian chinchilla is formed into a collar on the coat and a deep revere of the brown cloth goes to the line where the jacket is fastened. o o SHOT $50 IN DOG Swoyerville, Pa., Dec. 30.

HOW J. P. MORGAN FREED CHINA The Chinese Rebelled Rather than Let J. Pierp. Get a Grip on China Like the One He Has on the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. Sad as may be the necessity of 'doing so, it is necessary to take from Willie Randolph Hearst the credit of freeing China, and place that credit where it belongs with J. Pierpont Morgan, and his ally, the government of the .United States of America. The story of J. Pierpont Morgan's activities in this regard brings to mind those legends which tell how wolves suckled babes, and which have roused in suspicious persons the thought that perhaps the wolves suckled the babes with ever in mind the thought of larger and choicer titbits in time to come. Doubtless Mr. Morgan did not know he was freeing China, and doubtless he is going to be extremely pained to discover he has done so. Also, he is going to lose some money by it, which is one of the consolations of the situation. Consider the facts: A few years ago, the Manchu gov...

jTjyTf.tf !. Msfl3SWii dared not go back on their secret contracts with the French, British and German governments and financiers, and they were afraid to increase the loan. They protested to the United States government against Morgan's suggestion of part of the pie. Then - did William Howard Taft, president of these United States, send a personal cablegram to Prince Regent Chun which forced the matter to an issue. The "railroad loan" was increased. Morgan was allowed to make a Joan, and further was given permission to build a section of the "development of China" railroad, and to supply the materials for the same. This was a cute arrangement, inasmuch as Morgan thus made two profits. He made a rake-off from the handling of the loan, and he made a juicy profit by supplying the railroad construction materials from the Morgan Steel Trust. While Taft; Knox and Willard Straight were telling the Manchu government where it got off in the matter of borrowing money, President Taft personal...

fmmmmmmgmmmmmmsm upon, was that little Pu Yi had 'been "deceived" by a naughty member of his cabinet, who had turned the country's railroads over to wicked foreigners. Evidently, the thing that was sticking in the craws of the Chinese people, and making them rebel, was the handling of the railroad question. Yes, J. Pierpont Morgan freed China! But there is something ineffably sad in the spectacle of the government of "th,e most enlightened nation of Christendom" aiding the schemes of Morgan to such an extent that a groaning people arose in rebellion, and shed their "blood and devastated their country, in order to throy off the Morgan shackles. -o o- IRE.
