There is no time to lose. Lost manhood,
like all disease-!, Is never on the standstill. With it
you cau make no compromise. Either you must
master it or It will master you and flil your whole
future with misery and Indescribable woe. I have
treated so many eases of this kind that I am as fa

Chicago. III., May 16 Smarting from the
lambasting the White Stockings gave him
on Wednesday. Jack Powell went on the
slab asain this afternoon, determined to
twirl his team to victory. He pitched a
masterly game, and liad the heavy attillery
bfen able to connect with Southpaw Pittt's
delivery St Louis must have won Piatt
hld the Browns to one lone hit, and Pow
ell allowed only four. Chicago anneiid the
game by a score of 2 to 1.
The scoring of both games was the res Jt
of free transportation, and had it not been
foi three bases on balls the game would
probably have gone on until darkness.
Piatt apparently singled Heidrlck and
Powell out as special objects to be demol
ished Heldnck struck out four times and
Powell three. Sugden was the other vic
tim St Louis pegged along until the eighth
with nothing doing. Then Piatt gave lasses
to Wallace and Padden. and Wallace
scored on a double play Powell only once
became entrapped in the snares of ner
vousness. In the third he gave Eddie 11c
Fanand a base and Piatt sacrificed the
catcher to second Strang walked and Jones
advanced both men witn a tacrfice. Then
Danny Green got in the calcium light with
a single that scored two runs. Davis was
given a life b Wallace's error and Merles
walked. With the bases full, it looked as
if more runs would come In, but Isbell was
an ens) out.

Bob Wicker w III likely be elected to do the
pitching to-dav against Brooklyn He will
oppose either Doctor Newton or "Wild Bill"
Donovan, two of Hanlon'B steadiest twirl
ers. Jack Bvan probably will continue to
do the catching until Donovan returns to
the game Duke Farrell will be the blj
mitt artist for Brooklyn.
It Is Wicker's turn, but he has been called
on so frequently in the last week to finish
what some of his brother pitchers had
started, it may be that Stanley Tcrke will
be the favored one. Wicker finished out a
cam for Pnnn nnd nltehpd ail innine In
i Tuesday's game. He batted for both Joyce
O'Neill and Yerkes In the last two games
with New York.
Though their work has been criticised at
other places, Charley Power and Tom
Brown were a vast improvement over Joe
CantilUon Power was formerly a well
known Pittsburg baseball writer and was
I president of the Western Association last
