Major league club owners went

by Washington, and Davis Cocklin,
of Danville, Va., by Chicago Nation
Leo Moon, the ball player referred
to in the above press dispatch, is an

from near Saxapahaw, but more re
cently living at Swepsonville.
Until he was secured by Greensboro
a short while ago Moon had not had
professional baseball experience. Be
ing drafted for trial so soon after
breaking into minor league baseball
is proof that much ability is seen in
him, and that if he guards himself
closely it may mean his future.
He has many friends in this county
who will be glad of his selection for
a try-out in the big show.

For years there was a playwright
around London who had more venom
than ability. He could always pick a
success to pieces and invariably did,
but he had never produced a success

One night at the Savage club he be

half his plots.”
This was too much for an old critic,
who came back in a flash:
“Then lift one of his and write a
play around it. Show him up.”
The smallest baby at birth, known,
weighed two pounds one ounce.
