In the doctors' opinion the , worst may come now at any time, ana although every effort Is being made to save the life of the popular Decatur booster, It is feared that he will neier live to return to Decatur where his heart and his Interests have always been RAVES OF DECATUR. Mrs Sanders is with her husband and has taken him from the pretty cottage they rented upon their arriial to the hospital where It IB thought that more expert attention may be given him A man nurse has been em- plosed, and all other arrangements for his comfort made Vlrg Is delirious nart of the time, and during the lapses talks constantly of people and scenes in his beloved Decatur naming hn friends by the tens and twenties, talk- Ing baseball chances this year, and going o\er experiences in his Interest- Ing and successful life GENERAL SORROW Unliersal sorrow Is felt In Decatur over the sad Illness which th j; e »"^ the life of the enthusiastic Decatur man v,ho has been among the foremost al-aas when a question of the cit\ s success rns been at stake Among the sporting fraternltj. followers of base- I ball and the races there Is special an, xlety felt and business men are all interested In the fight he is miking against death 4 . Mr Sanders was a member of Oie Episcopal church and an e=pecli friend of Dr Hostcr who is now In t h i r s e of a parish in Tennessee Dr Hosier has kent in close touch with the sick man since his leaving nccatur ILCO d ing to the letters received from Mrs Sanders and his sympathy has done much to make the exile bearable I support that the club owners say that unless tha Jani come to the rescue Immediately, they will give up the franchise. Barney Still Slipping. Barney Pelty, once a Three-I star and for several seasons with St Louis, Is now running a semi-pro team In a Missouri country town. How About the Name.
