hospital, while Miss Crampton, 26,
is equally disconsolate a. her home,
2581 Harney street.
"He will die for want of compan
ionship. I know," declared Miss
Crampton yesterday. "He has little
left in the world except companion
ship, and I really grew attached to
him in the time I was there atthe
hospital as nurse."
Miss Crampton was withdrawn
from the case three days ago by
Mrs. Cora Patton, superintendent of
the hospital, who believed".the aged
man well enough to be placed in a

He ' was found two years afro wan

the lining of his coat $10,000 was
found. He was feeble and his
memory was nearly gone. Me was
laced in the county hospital.
When Miss Crampton was first

Miss rranjpton, since bcingi re
moved from the case,' has promised
to visit him once a , week.
' "He was so dependent on me and
would look for my return anxiously
when I went away." she said. "And
I am really very fond of him. too."
Miss Crampton is living with her

THAT LATE BALL
President of Chicago Nation
als Has Been Advised That
Chicago, Sept. 4. President Wil

league base ball club issued a state
ment this afternoon saying that he
was advised last Tuesday afternoon
prior t the game with Philadelphia
that it was "fixed" for Philadelphia
Mr. Veeck gave out copies of six
telegrams received from Detroit,
Cleveland and Chicago prior to the
game, all reporting that it was
"fixed" and that thousands of dol

delphia by Chicago "sharps."

Philadelphia won, 3 to 0.
Mr. Veeck said he would appoint

them money to employ .detective j.
"If the charges are proved we will
drive the guilty players out of base
ball, even though it shatter the

Mr. Veeck said he arranged with

as suspicious and, after the game,
instructed the detective agency to lo

detectives found, he said, that there
was no such address as "57 Ledburv
