The lack otanamateur baseball league is
felt, even at this early date, and its ab
sence is deplored on all tides by all per
sons who love baseball as played by strong,
well-organized amateur teams. It seems
that the reason why there is uo league this
Reason is because so many of the bent play
ers have been secured by minor league
teams. Isn't this a very poor excuse? Is
not their going away ihc best kind of a
reason why there should be a new league
bo that a new supply or players for future
years maybe prepared?
Not only this, llieie is a certain demand
for amateur baseball at limes, and thoam
ateui league has quite a following, es
pecially when the Washington are away,
and when the college schedules arc closed.
The opinion is expreed that even no wit
1b not too late to get together and foun
either a District league or one composed
of departmental teams. How about it,
Mr. riesident Sousa? All that seems lack
ing now is the initial move, for somu one
experienced man to setup and husHe talent
together. Will It be done this season?

in gymnasium clothes This weight is
well distributed over a height of 5 feet
10 1-2 inches He has good back and
shoulder and arm development, and these
stand him in well for the class of athletics

been a resident of this city about fifteen
years, but has only taken an active inter

and during that time has been a member
of sevcial clubs, and since November last
an active member of the W. A. C. He has
boxed with all the local men of standing,

Fitzslmmcns, who thought him very clever.
O'Connor claims the amateur welterweight
championship of the District. He showed'
his great cleverness and hitting powers in

" Affliction A 2fenr Hclutlon of

l)ecl um Much na Possible.
New York, May 11. "Seasickness," said
a physician, who has bered as a ship
surgeon several seasons, "is one of the
oddest things that human flesh Is heir to.
It la really a reflex action of the pneumo
gastric nerve. The pneumo-gastric nerve
Is one of the tenth pair of cranial nerves
The nervoussystem of the human anatomy
becomes accustomed to the stability of
objects around us, and, consequently, as
soon a3 most people get on the sea, where
the only thing In sight is rolling waves and
fleeting clouds, the pneumo-gastrie nerve
"Seasickness might as well be called land
sickness or sky sickness or mountain sick
ness as far us the name itself goes, be
cause a pcison who has never seen a body
of water bigger than tho spring branch on
the farm where he was reared sometimes
experiences what is known as seasickness
in riding on a pond or lake, RIding.In a
train, swinging, bccsawlug,. and riding In
an elevator produce It, and persons looking
at the pockets on a fence In driving by
rapidly, have been known to become ery
111. Nearly every one has seen children
fall out of a swing pr from a seesaw
all in a heap, and too prostrated, physically
and mentally, to speak. That is the result
"Of course, it Is not so severe or lasting
as a case which occurs say, when one is a
day out at sea, but it is just as disagree
able for a few minutes. Be that as it
may, It Is called seasickness, because most
persons are reared on laud, and when travel
ing on water the abrupt change of their
usual surroundings gives rise to this re
flex. "The severity of the disease varies among
individuals according to the condition of
the nervous system. Some persons are ,
much more Impressionable than others,
and they arc the ones who suffer most. A
one most apt to suffer, yet tills Is not iu-
varlably so. Often a rcatstrong man,
bragging every Tew mlnutevatout beluga
first-class sailor, Is seized and brought so
low that all he can do ltto xv-ant to die
"Hypnotism and scawekness are pretty
close cousins. A person's .mentality has
a great deal to do wltyMhet degree of his
suffering and yet the ccipdJtipn itself when
realized is most horribje, Tbe depression
Is fearful and the plysjcal dijeomrort just
as great. A popular idea exists that If you
have seasickness once thatglves Immunity
from a second attack. ,-The man who sets
his hopes on this beUeC.is ,to be pitied. A
person might cross thepcean twenty times
a year and be seasick icyqry; time Again
he might cross ninety-nine times without
missing a meal and die of nausea on the
hundredth vpvagc. Seavpyagcs are like
children you never know. bow they are
going to turn out, as, far as your pneumo
gastric nerve is concerned.
"The condition of seasickness is greatly
rggravated by surroundings, particularly
bad odors. Steerage passengers are much
more apt to suffer than are those in the
first and second cabins. Their close con
finement between decks, the narrow,
stifling quarters, and -unappetizing 'cod
are often such as would miike a seasoned
sailor succumb. It Is In this class that
the ship's surgeon has his most aggravated
and dangerous cases of seasickness. The
patients will not assist themselves, and
their general stupidity makes it very hard
for a doctor to do anything more than to
hope that kind nature or a rupid voyage
will do what he has failed to accomplish "
"Do people often die of seasickness?"
asked the reporter.
"I can't say that there are many deaths
from this disease," answered the author
ity, "bittthoso who Hay'Well.I know I shall
be very seasick, but therels a gicat deal of
consolation In knowing that It can't kill
me,' don't know what they are talking
about The great depression and the
wearing, tearing strain on the nervoun
system, produced by the convulsive action
of the abdominal muscles and the inability
of the. system to take nourishment, oc
casionally result In death. A ship's sur
geon, If not extremely careful, is liable to
have seasick patients, through their own
ignorance or religious prejudices, starve to
death. What is meant by that? Just this:
As a rule children do not get seasick. But
I remember, when crossing the ocean one
summer, being called to see two children
In the steerage who were very III. They
were Polish Jews, and the mother and
father were with them.
"They were all rather emaciated when
they came aboard, and in three days the
boy was in a comatose condition except
when roused by nausea. There was no medl
cine that would do him any good, and I
soon saw that tho only thing was to nour
ish the little fellow. I ordered the mother
to give him beef tea and a few drops of
brandy at nhoit intervals, but to my sur
prise he did not rally. I soon learned that
it was a part of her creed not to eat any
meat that had not been blessed by a rabbi,
and so she was calmly throwing the beef
tea overboard. We puTMle" child in the hos
pital; the attendant fed him every two
hours, and before we landed he was better
than he was before he sailed. Twenty four
hours more without nutrition would have
"Never get in debt to your stomach, is a
very good rule to follow when sailing the
seas. If well, a person slipuld keep some
thing In the stomach, and if sick, after
each spell some food should he taken for
two reason". First, thercrshould be some
thing there to give upland then the sys
tem is bound to absorb some of it, and
in this way the strength! keptup. There
is absolutely no medicine on the face of
Vhe earth that will stive off a case of
seasickness or make it lighter. Any doctor
will give ream3of testlmoriy concerning the
trouble he has hadinflghtlng the numerous
concoctions recommcndetlifor this disease.
Some people begin to dege for days be
fore starting on a voyage. The only thing
that Is advisable is to" give tho liver a
thorough overhauling and then make up
the mind that no such thing as seasickness
can come to you.
"It Is -wipe to stay on deck as much as
possible. Usually if a person who Is sick
can be persuaded to go on deck, and Mb
interest can be aroused, he finds himself
well before be knows It It is a first-class
remedy to get a sick person right down
angry. Again, If the sufferer can be
engaged in a race around the deck he gets
his sea legs and forgets all about being
Bick. If a person Is too 111 for this, the
beRt thing to do is to stretch out on deck
with the feet higher than the head and to
eat cracked ice, Jlrink carbonated water or
a little vlchy arid whisky or champagne,
and, above everything', get out of sight of
every one else wbotiB'slck.

New York millionaire, in speaking of tho
causes of his success in business, once said:

7 a. m. and did not leave the refinery
until' 7 p. m. 1 never went to bed ac night

night long. While I was a single man my
expenses never exceeded $50 a month.
Pilot bread and cheese made for me many
a meal. A canvao suit was my dnlly
