A hostess who entertains a great

left hand corner. This monogram is
done in gold, silver, red, blue, pink

nearly any color scheme she wishes
to carry out In flowers on her table.
These cards are used as name cards
at each place and If cards are to be
played after dinner or luncheon, the
table number and "couple" are written
on the back of card. Some times a
flower Is thrust through one corner
of the card, a punch being used to
make the holes for stem. These In-
dividual cards are also most useful
to use In sending gifts when one
wishes to write an appropriate senti-
ment and are a little more individual
than a visiting card. Try ordering

contract—the link which welds togeth-

ball—Is to be tested In the courts at
Arthur F. ("Artie") Hofman, former
outfielder and utility man of the Chi-
cago National League Baseball team,
has filed suit against tho club for $3,-
000 which he claims is due him as
back pay through failure of the club
management to notify him of the ter-
mination of his contract.
Hofman's suit is an attack on the
validity of the regular baseball con-
tract in that he charges a system of
practical peonage, by which the play-
er is bandied as a chattel. Through
this system, according to Hofman's
suit, basebalL players may be "black-
listed" and kept from earning a liv-
ing at their profession unless in per-
fect accord with the club owners.
Its strength through the Ironclad
agreement existing between each and
every club owner In the National,
American and other league operating
under the "national agreement."
Hofman was traded to Pittsburgh
by the Chicago team, but playod with
the Pirates but a short time. This
season he was released to Nashvlllo
of the Southern league.
Jimmy Sheckard, another old-time
Cub favorite, was released early this
season to St. Louis and from there he
went to Cincinnati to join Joe Tinker,
"Miner" Brown and Johnny Kling, all
of whom helped materially to make
the Cubs famous.

Former Scranton Pitcher Is Playing
Particularly Well for the Cardi-

Ball players contemplating Joining
the St. Louis Cardinals should get all
possible practice in the outfield, no

game they may consider as the jobs
they are best fitted for You may be
a pitcher, third baseman, first sacker,
or what not, but if you become a Card
the chances are you will be made Into
an outfielder, says the Sporting News.
Lee Magee was a first baseman; Ev-
ans also thought that his natural posi-
tion; Oakes began life in baseball as
a pitcher; Whitted made his mark as
a third sacker; Teddy Cathers was a
pitcher. Now all are fly chasers.
Cathers has filled the role particularly
well, so well, in fact, that he never i
is called upon to pitch, no matter how )
badly the Cardinal stall may be going. '
