Fascinations of Baseball Shown
New York Incident.
Baseball has a charm all its own.
Last Saturday at noon a promoter
started down Wall street to take a
steamer for British Guiana. With him
was an Englishman who had never
seen a ball game, having lived all his
life on his estate bordering the Esse
quibo river. Tl.e promoter was going
down to buy from him for a syndicate
a vast tract of forest land.
A pack of youngsters from Water
sfeet, chased by a policeman from
their native heath, began to play base
ball on narrow Hanover street, just
when the promoter and his friend
should have been increasing their
pace. So they stopped along with
hi'ndret's of others, from bankers to
push cart men.
The field was a narrow one; the
eight-year-old batter faced the City
bank; right field was blocked by
Rrown Brothers, and left field by the
Custom House. The catcher's back
stop was the United States Lloyd's
The play was scientific. The Eng
lishman was an apt student and

House cleared the bases. Then fol
lowed a home run into an apple cart
en Wall street; those who chose to
celebrate the play by picking up ap
ples and eating them did so.
The promoter finally dragged the
Britisher away. They missed their
steamer at that, and it took a lot of
persuasion plus a yellow note to get
a busy tug boat captain to give chase.

kissing her hastily he took his valise,
after putting on his hat, gloves, and
overcoat, and left the house.
His wife stood by the window
watching him until he was out of
sight, when a thrill of superstitious
fear shot through her.
She bad watched him out of sight.
Away back in her childhood a maid
en relative had so strongly impressed
her mind with the malevolent influ
ences of such an act that she could
never, despite her common sense, get
rid of the belief.
But she was cheered the next mo
ment by recollecting her tower. She
sped quickly upstairs, then along the
corridor and to another flight. This
brought her to the foot of the tower,
which was built at one side of the
house, and rose fifteen feet above it
There were windows in it on all sides,
and it gave a commanding view of the

townspeople they were looked upon as

and in various indirect ways tried to
hinder his going.
Just at that moment the sun burst
out. The most unbelieving could not
call the weather into question, but
still the cloud sat on Mrs. Hamilton's
brow. "Some women." she whimpered,
for she was quite alone, "would sus
pect their husbands of wrong-doing, to
go away as Vane does every year so
mysteriously"; and then she went
slowly downstairs to her own room,
pausing on a stair to listen to the
children's voices in the dining room.
"I have them at all events," she
Going straight to her mirror she
gazed long at her own reflection, not
ing the clear, colorless complexion,
the dark luminous eyes, the rich
brown hair with its gleams of gold,
the tall, graceful figure, and the in
tangible charm which blent them all
together into a charming personality,
her own. She loved her husband
deeply, and was not insensible to the
compliment he paid her when going
away. "Why did he go, if he did not
wish to? Surely business did not de
mand his absence. He had no rela
tives. He did not go for his health;
besides, his trips were yearly. A wave
of color sped over her face and she
clutched her bands nervously.
Just then the children came rushing
in, and Perley said, clasping her hand,
"I am glad you are pretty, mamma.
I should hate to have a homely one,
shouldn't you, Clare?"

her arms and hogged them tightly for

for school, but Instead of letting them
go off alone, she put on a street dress
and went with them.
