the former and four of tho latter In the
form of varicolored swans, for which ho
laid on the counter the sum of $30. He
bought all tho fanciest sivnii food and

Sumner, X J.
Man idlers gathered around the crate
when It arrived at the links, nnd all icro

of the birds. The crate was pried open

N. J., quintet. This announcement Is
not an unusual one at first glance, but
It means more this time. It means
that this will be the flrst step to in
augurate the cage game as a winter
sport among the members of the Schuyl

Captain Lewis H. Kenney, of the Mal
ta's, has nrranged to have a special car
for the trip, and members of the team
and their friends will leave over the

Captain Kenney Is an ardent oarsman
and a basketball player, and there are
hundreds of others like him In the Schuyl
kill Navy These members could get to
gether nnd form a league of teams that
would work to great advantage. Dur
ing the winter months there Is little
to hold the members, together, and some
form of Indoor sport would be the means
of keeping up friendships and mak'ng
the clubs stronger. Other branches of
athletics might be tried.
A number of men nro Interested In
track and field athletics, and In the an
nual cross-country championship run of
the Navy keen sport is enjoyed.
It Is the opinion of many members who
have been approached that Indoor work

ever, some good matches.
In the fourth 18 It looks as though

experienced opponents. The former put
out Moon on the 18th and plajed tho
long 7th as a bye hole.
In the bunker ,ln two, he showed his
form by nlbllclhg one dead to the hole.
Those tha't know, know this is no slight
trick. MacBeftn. with the odds 2 to 1
against him, beat Lelloy Bartholomew.
There Is something doing, as one plaer
put It, when "two bulldogs from tho same
kennel get together," and this proved to
be the case when Calvert and Lindsay,
both of Aronlmlnk, met In the afternoon.
Tho gallery picked this match as tho
most Interesting, not only because both
players were favorites, but because they
were tied for tho best mdal score In the
qualifying round. The tie will be settled
on Sunday, despite the cries of the crowd
to plsy it off together with the match.

THE DAILY STORY
A Gentle Young Man
Young Mr. Boy Sinclair was celebrat
ing his birthday by sitting In lounge
chair on the veranda and smoking a few
cigarettes and sipping lemonade. Not a
whoop not ft yell. None of his college
classmates there to Indulge In the college,
yell and to wring hi hand and say,
"Let's go Into the city and burn up

to look at him In astonishment nnd say.
"Well. I'll be hanged! Your Md birth

L'nale Pete's whoonlng big legacy and
you nro sitting here us quiet as an old
lion on her nest."
Had his mother been asked to give an
account of Boy's life and adventures up
to date she would have paragraphed it
off as follows:
"Verv oulet ns a baby. Beomcd to Un
derstand at onco that a squalling infant
Is a nuisance.
"Very quiet as a child. When the cat
bit him for pulling her tall he wept, but
made no holler to bring out the nro de

even when a dlmo was given him to
spend on Fourth of July.

fell In love and fell out, and had tho
usual number of stone bruises nnd
bumps, but all quietly very quietly."
Thut's what his mother would havo
said, nnd his many friends could have
added that there had been no great
change In the last live years. He was
no sissy, but he didn't seem to think it
necessary to shout his Hume and pres
ence as he moved along, lie left that to
others, ond when they brough up in po
lice stations ho quietly nppcarcd and
balled them out.
At the hour thnt the quiet and gentle
Mr. Sinclair was sipping lemonnde on
his mother's veranda. Miss Bertha Gor
inon was riding along the highway in her
runabout. Had her mother told of the
girl's adventures since babyhood it would
have made n bad Impression. As n baby
she kicked and squalled; as a child she
was not obedient, ns a half-grown girl
Bhe wns famous for her Impatience.
When she wns a young lndy her mother
called in a specialist. "It isn't nerves,"
tuld tho man after observing the case
for a quarter of an hour.
"Then what can it be7"
"Her temperament. She is what Is
known as an Impatient. She wants ac
tion all the time. She has never made
an effort to control herself. If sho
thought of crossing the sen she'd want
to go right aboard u liner within an
"But Is there no remedy?" asked the
"Yes, and you could have applied It
years ago, but you didn't do it."
"You can't do anything with her. You
nnd the othcrH of the family love her, of
course, and of course she loves you, but
you Antagonise her at the same time. If
she falls in love with and marries the
wrong man there'll be a Kilkenny cat
light nnd n divorce. If it's tho right
man her temperament will change."
'And who will bo the right man?"
''A quiet gentleman a man who Is

"Probably a hundred of them."
It wasn't a good morning for riding
out. It hnd rained during the night, and
tho highways were muddy.
"Of course you won't go out this morn
ing?" said Mrs. Gormon to her daughter.
Very promptly Miss Bcitha thought of
going out, and in live minutes she was In
fidgets. In ten she was out. Before she
had gone a mile she was Impatient at her
Impatience In comtng out.
The builders of autos and runabouts
won't say that an Impatient person can't
drive one, but will admit that If such a
person goes to driving nil over the road
and yanking levers and handles about
there Is a chance of an accident. And
that is Just what Mlm Bertha was doing
ns she approached the house where the
quiet and gentle Mr. Sinclair sat. lie
regarded her with interest quiet Interest.
He decided that tho machine was out of
order. He decided that It would bring up
against tho fence.
And having quietly come to these de
cisions, Mr. Sinclair wnlkcd down to tho
gate Just as the runabout banged Into
the fence opposite. There was a (smash
and a scream.
Mr. Sinclair did not hurry.
"Do you want to seo me Killed?" the
Mr, SinclaU-Inspected the machine and
calmly and qbletly replied that all danger
"If not too much of an effort on your
part, perhaps you will tell mo If the
machine Is too much damaged to run
agoln until repaired?" the girl asked.
Ho made a new Inspection, backed the
runabout Into the road and pronounced
that tho damage was not vital. "You
should not think of driving a machine
alone until you liave had experience," he
"Havo I asked for your advice?" she
"Nevertheless, It Is good. If you think
you might have trouble I will gladly
drive you home."
"I wouldn't let you!"
"Then I should follow on horseback."

Near where Mr. Sinclair tat was A long,
old, homemade dock, running out Into
tho lake. It had been ready to tumble
down for the last two years, and some
one had cut un a sign of "Dangerous!"
If Mr. fiinclslr hadn't been there, Mils
Bertha would have read and heeded that

"You may have an accident."
Mr. Sinclair slipped off coat and shoes.
Tho old dock had begun to weave and

TWO WAR BOOKS
Belloc in Englnnd, Slmonds in
Amerlcn, Explain Things
Twentieth century literature Is learn
ing to popularise technical subject With
out distorting or vulgarltlng. It I sim
ply making plain the mats ot Intrlcato
thinking which Intricate subject have
always demanded, thinking that ha
usually been befogged In the verbal In
eptitudes of technicians. The value of
this 20th century progress In letter bulk
a very large nnd potent fact It builds
that vital basis of democracy knowledge.
The Great War ha fumuhed two ad
mirable examples. One la English, one
American. Both have made plain tho
most complex of human thoughts and ac
tions, In spit of human thought and nc
cldents which befog tho news from Eu
rope day by day.
The Englishman. Hlllalro Belloc. and
the American, Frank H. Slmonds, have
shouldered up out of the ruck of "mili
tary strategists" and newspaper experts.
Belldc's brilliant exposition or the tactic
behind the German drive and the French
stand made over a foundering British
weekly nnd brought It tremendous popu
larity. Frank II. Slmonds' unsigned war
editorial, printed flrst In tho New York
Sun and later In the New YorK rriDuno
ond the Kveninq LEDafcn, brought him
tho biggest reputation so far evolved by
the war. The work of both men Is now
available In book form for comparison ns
well as enjoyment.
Slmonds' "Second Phare" of the "Great
War" (Mitchell Kcnncrley, New York)
cover every angle of the conflict, from
tho fall of Antwerp to tho second battlo
of Ypres. Because It l drawn from dally
editorials and from weekly nnd monthly
articles In tho New Bepuullc and tho Re
view of Bevlews, the book Is naturally
discursive; Its backbone Is time, nothing
more. But that Is, In a way, r. Slmonds'
aim. He Is sweeping n tremendous area
with the flcld glass of suggestion. Ho
records each battle, estimates forces nnd
directions of thrusts, explains tho con
flicting tactics In tho large. Between
buttles, so to speak, he docs more. Ho
considers the dlplomntlc nnd racial prob
lems Involved. He speculates on tho ef
fect of new entrants Into the war and
consequent realignments. He knows tho
crimes of European dlplomncy In the
Balkans from which tho spark of con
flict sprnng; nnd he knows the strategy
of tho Civil War and of tho Napoleonic
campaigns down to such minutiae that a
comparison of a Gallclan bnttle lino with
nn evolution of Lee is as easy and clear
as the general alignment of Grant's policy
against the South with General Joffro's
"nibbling." Altogether a book of bis?
things made plain.
Belloc's "Tho Elements of the Great
War: First Phase" (Hearst's Interna
tional Mhrnry Company. New York) la
utterly different in conception nnd execu
tion, but the same In the resultant truth.
Writing for a weekly, he could order his
narrative Into a singly directed whole.
And the purpose of that whole Is the
statement of war conditions nnd the clar
ification of the military strategj by which
France stopped the immensely superior
German drive on Paris.
Literally, the story of that strategy la
heroic, dramatic Numbers, preparation,
scientific acumen and confidence, all on
tho side of Germnny. And nothing for
France but thnt very lack of confidence.
thnt appreciation of the
enemy supe- 1
rlorlty and the consequent nee,u tor mar
velous fortitude and the llvcst of strategy
upon which Napoleonic triumphs were
built. That 1b the conflict upon which
Hlllalre Belloc lifts a world curtain. His
explanation of the time-honored "open
strategic square" of the French, how Its
application led the drive of Kluck to the
southeast of Paris and then In a moment
of, completed strategy hurled back the
German "nt with a power 1 Irresistible,

Galsworthy has written another lovely
book on another unlovely subject. "The
Freelands" (Charle Scrlbner's Sons, New
York) Is a characteristic novel. It de
serves pralso and raise regrets.
Of course. It I a perfect piece of lit
erary craftmanshlp (barring two "than
which," doubtless picked up two year
ago on his American trip), full of lovely,
vivid writing, And, of course, it I Ironic
Indeed, tho irony I Ingeniously triple dis
tilled. The threo Freelands, for Instance,
agree that "the country Is In a bad way.
Felix, novelist, blames It on Industrialism
and Officialdom: Stanley, manufacturer,
on Ofllclaldom and Destructive Criticism;
John, In tho home olTIco, on Destructive
Criticism and Industrialism.
Just as Inevitably, the book Is a "truc
turo of tho most delicate and sympathetic
charactorlxntlon. It ahtnes wiw mm
virtue which makes Galsworthy a master
dramatist. The gallery of "Tho Freo
Innds" numbers, beside the brother,
their masterful, their aesthetic and their
liberated wives, another marvelous
grandmother, Galsworthy's ever-lovely
children, a young Celtic rebel and his
cvet moro rebellious sister, and a heroine,
Felix's daughter, whose face has In It
"something nllvo and sweet, something
clear and bwIU." No short rcvlow can
hopo to convey the truth and interest of
Finally, of course, a thesis. Tho land;
England's plutocracy-sucked soil; Us de
generation; the departure of tho peas
antry: nil thrown out aa a background
for the action. The hounding of Tryst,
"the tragic fellow tho moving, lonely
figure; emanation ot these solitary fields,
shade of tho departing land!" by a pro
prietress who looks after thp morals as
she sees them of her tenants; his re

landIs one of the minor vexations that
travel with Galsworthy's virtues. It
suggests the equally annoying notions
that Galsworthy tmaglnes earthly heavens
to He Just over the hill, and that he falls
to recognize the vital necessity of agita
tors like the Celt In other English Indus
