GLEANED PROM EXGHANGES.
The ode to the meerschaum brown,
And the clay with Its coat of jet,

She knows he's a hero, he thinks he's
But he's king of the diamond, a Fresh
man at that,
A corking good baseman, a fiend at the
And Cupid, the sinner, I blush for his
With the two youthful hearts is play
ing a game.
When the last man Is out, the game Is
I'll bet then Dan Cupid has captured
15 HOURS AND 10 MINUTES,
