holds 3500. Ileslde, Klegln has a four-year
lease on a plot of ground dead In tha heart
of tho city, facing the 1'Iaza, ot public square,
around which all thea Latln-Amcrlcan cities

which will be the greatest on the continent.
His site compares with llroad and Chestnut

"Klegln will not stage a fight In his out

Reid Brings Dozen Cases of Clubs
From Other Side.
When Wilfrid Reld, wbo has been engaged
by the Eeavlew Oolf Club, arrived from Eng
land the otbee day he brought with him a
do jen cases of golf clubs. Presumably he did
not do It for fun. Yet it lead to tb thought
that ere long w shall hear golfers discussing
among themselves again the merits of this
manufacture, that make, tha other style, and
It merely meana ono inoro brand to talk aoout.
It may be aald, however, that Reld is on
of the most popular professionals wbo have
come her from th other side In recent
j ears.
The variety of report going around these
day about llrttlsb professionals and the possi
bility of their coming to America In Jun for
the open championship suggests to tlw
Imaginative mind tha katydids, with their

com over, but ther has been nothing definite.
Of course, the professional do not ala
find such men of spending proclivities as Lord

TRAPPE, Md.. March 1. Home-run Frank
Baker Is keeping In shape by practicing with
the Trappe High School nine "Mr. Maker,"
as his neighbors call him since he won big
league fame and incidentally world's series
dollars, had a clean record at the bat. He
stood at the plate twice as a trembling pitcher
burled tho sphere. Baker hit the ball, where
upon taxpayers wept, for each time he knocked
out a pane of glass In the schoolhouso.
Friends of Baker nay that he Is wavering
nnd that he meets the mall train each morn
ing to scan the sporting pages. They are bel
ting odds he will be back at 21st and Lehigh

A Dream of Far-OlT Lands

Through apple blossoms, swaying In the

can yield
To him who hears far off the roll of
The silver bugle caltfnp- to the field.
In Far-Off Lands I see Mm take the path
With outstretched hands that reach
forth for Ms dream,
Unmindful of the night, the tempest's
But on by Mil and hollow, vale and
Through all the bitterness and stress of
That may not turn h(m oaofc tior dim

Unknowing, as he looks through tender
He follows but the pnanfom of a wraith,
I watch him leave the happy fields he
The waving grasses and the wide, kind
The harvest song that winds and echoes
Lost summer days of sunlight drifting
The paths of faith ana honesty and
To follow through the mire of hate and
And fano-Ied ways that lead so far from
That sent him forth to where Ms dreams
might lead.
From Far-Off Lands that hold their place)
I tee Mm take the gray trail of the
Struggling and stumbling, weary, sick at
Groping In blindness through the night of
With outstretched hands that reaoh forth
for Ms trean
That lures and leads and beokons, yet
still keeps '
Dim in the darkness, as a light that
Beyond dim vale toners endless dark
ness creeps
Nearer and nearer, from the throng apart,
I see Aim struggling blindly in the fray.
With mighty pity surging through my
