it is difficult to obtain. For no wo

shoe is built today, it can't fit as it

EIGHT MEN TO BAT
J. T. Hayes Has Novel Idea as
to New Ball
PITCHER NOT TO DO HJ.TTJL&G
The Daxenport Manager Thinks it
a Waste of
Manager James T. Hayes, of the
Davenport club of the Three-Eye
league, advocates a radical change in
the rules which he thinks would im
prove the game much better than
would the abolishing of the foul
strike rule. Discussing the changes
of rules that might be made by the
joint rules committee at its coming
meeting, Manager Hayes has this to
"I don't believe the joint rules com
mittee could do better than to pro
vide that eight men do all the bat
ting. Substituting a batter or a run
ner for a pitcher is often resorted to
in order to maktf the game easier for
him. Why not quit depending upon
the twirler for batting altogether?
He is hardly ever expected to do any
hitting. His batting record cuts little
figure when he is signed. It is hia
speed and curves that count. He isn't
expected to bat and fans out a ma
jority of the times that he coraes up
to the plate. On the bases he is usu
ally a 'dead, one' Nothing makes n
game so much as. plenty .of hitting
and gingery base-running. The pitch'
er contributes neither, as a rule. In
a close game, if he gets on the bases,
the fans Aire glad to see him put out
to give hnn a rest. Stealing second or
third are feats not expected of him.
Let hint do nothing but pitch, and
you will have introduced a. novelty
and a featifr that will take with the
crowd right- along.
Would Keep Foal Strife
"Then keep the foul hit rule. - It
has shortened the game, not.. too
much but by taking out the tedious
delays that resulted from so much
fouling of the ball as was chargeable
to some batters under the old rule.
While the players fell down in their
batting averages after it was adopt
ed, it was noticeable the past season
that they picked up quite a little.
That meant a gain in scientific bat
ting. They know now that they have
got to hit the ball where it will count,
and it is that kind of batting that
brings the crowd to its feet.
"I see that it is being suggested
that the error column might be done
away with. Those who favor it argue
tuat some players will go after balls
if errors are not counted that they
leave alone now for fear of making
errors. The public won't stand for.it,
however. The first question about' a
game is the score and the next is the
hits and errors. The fans can figure
out how a game was lost or won from
those three columns, and they won't
want to see the error column wiped
"The Three-Eye league is getting
bouquets from all over the country
for loading the way with its declara
tion against the high pitcher's box.
The high box was a great schemft for
giving the home pitcher an advan
tage over the visiting twirler, but it
should not be allowed, and wilt not be
in this league. Some uniform rule
making it impossible should be adopt
ed." Sexton Goes East.
M. IL Sexton left last night for Chi
cago, from which place he starts to
day for New York to attend the meet
ing of the representatives of the Na
tional Association of Minoc leagues
and the two big leagues to revise the
baseball playing rules for this sea
son. DURING SWEDISH QUINTET
TO APPEAR AT AUGUSTANA
During's Swedish Ladies' quintet,
which is making its first American
tour, has been secured for an engage
ment at Augustana college the even
ing of March 2. Organized and train
ed by Edw. During, a noted musician
of Stockholm, this quintet has, for
the past 10 years, been considered by
the best critics to be as near absolute
perfection as - can be attained. Es
pecial stress is laid upon the hi;h
quality of voices, the line training
and precision of their singing, the
elegant execution and well-.studicd en
semble and the surprising skill of
their unaccompanied renditions.
As one critic says: "In these song
productions there lies, what is gen
erally ro rare, a pure, urtistit: intui
tion and an especially, wonderful dis
cipline as a background, and they
work in an artistic unity which is
flawless and brilliant." Another critic
calls them "an art quintet which aims4
at beauty of tone, richness of sound
and delicacy of shading." Another
says "They would be an ornament to
any prominent philharmonic concert."
Such praise is very rare and shows
better than anything the artistic
standing of the quintet.
The ladies are personally of fine
appearance, which is enhanced by
their picturesque national costumes.
They sing in English, Swedish and

DE WIUDT LECTURE IS
TO BE A NOTABLE EVENT
The lecture of Harry' De Windt at
the Burtis opera house tomorrow ev

lectual of the month. Mr. De Windt
has not been the subject of popular
gossip and interest to the degree en
joyed by the successful Nansen or the
lost Andree, but he did one'thing that
neither of these eminent men of sci
ence was able to do he carried his
Arctic trip through to a finish on the
lines along which it was projected
by him, brought back a complete rec
ord of it, and is here to tell about it.
He succeeded. It is no small thing to
pass on foot from faris to New York,
but Mr. De Windt did it, and tomor
row evening, under the auspices of
the Tri-City Press club, he will be in
Davenport to tell about it. The ster
eopticon .emphasizes his story in the
most interesting manner. The pict
ures that will be shown with its aid
are even, remarkable; they are cer
tainly unique and of the greatest:jn
terest. The whole entertainment will
be one of the best things in the line
of the illustrated lecture that has
ever been seeii and heard here.

Immense Tobacco Purchase.
Forty-eight thousand dollars paid
for a fancy lot of tobacco. The big
gest purchase of high grade tobacco
ever made in this section of the coun
try by a cigar manufacturer, was
made last Wednesday by Frank P.
Lewis for his celebrated Single Binder
cigar. A written guarantee was given
that the entire amount was to be
fancy selected tobacco. This no doubt,
makes the Icwis factory the largest
holder in the United States of tobac
co of so high a grading. Peoria Jour

Age improves some plays, but it seems
in the case of latter day musical com

ment to those who have witnessed
the original production. It will be
remembered that when "The Stroll

ago it was unanimously pronounced
the best thing of the season in its
line, having a large company with
people far above the average seen in
road organizations in the principal
roles. The chorus was a feature also,
the whole performance going with a
dash that was truly enchanting. But
remove Miss Sylva from the company
that appeared here Saturday and it
would be difficult to imagine the
quality of the performance. Her
personality pervades the whole enter
tainment. While the staging was hand
some, there was lacking in the cn
: cmbles. on which musical comedies
so much depend, that gingery move

The Boy Phenomenon
He Stands Peerless and Aloue, the
Greatest Magnetic Healer .of Mod

Him Daily. Chronic Diseases Being
Daily Cured Which Have Heretofore
Been Called Incurable.
And still the Cod-like, work of
healing, the sick snatching from
the very brink of the grave, as it
were, those 'who had been given up
as incurable by all other means goes
bravely on. Day after day scores of
our most prominent and cultured cit
izens may be seen entering and leav
ing the parlors of the Boy Phenome
non at the Harper house, thus show
ing by their presence that vital mag
netism, such as is possessed by him,
has secured a firm hold on the more
intelligent of our population.
A person who can wield such an in
fluence in a community so intellectual
as Rock Island is certainly no ordin
ary man. He stands like a tower
above and over all other healing agen
cies. Wonderfully gifted by nature
and possessing the greatest magnetic
powers ever bestowed upon a human
i eing, he is having an unbroken suc-Ci.-s.-lon
.of the most stupendous
achievements ever accorded a medical
By this marvelous power and gift
of healing, with which so few men
are endowed, he cures the deaf, blind,
lame, diseases of the head, throat,
lung, liver, kidneys and nervous sys
tem, vitalizes and drives all impuri
ties from the blood. He is especially
successfu 1. in all forms of nervous
prostration and nervous debility,
rheumatism, paralysis, epilepsy, drop
sy, diabetes, Bright's disease, tumors
and cancers even of the stomach and
womb surpassing everything ever at
tempted or conceived pf in the heal
ing art. ' , -J" ,
Nobody can form any 'opinion ,of
his wonderful cures unless they actu
ally witness them., Hundreds of peo
pie who have been bedridden for
months and years, and others who
have not taken a step without crutch
es, suffering with rheumatism, paral
ysis and other diseases, have been
and are daily being cured by him and
restore to perfect health.
These are facts and can be easily
verified. Let no one despair of being
cured until after they have seen and
been treated by him. There is not a
day passes but what some remarkable
and almost incredible cure is witness
ed in his office, where the sick, crij)
pled and deformed are daily assem
bled in large numbers. Why, it was
only Saturday that Mrs. Walter How
ard, one of the oldest residents, was
carried into his parlors, having been
18 months unable to walk from rheu
matism and female weakness. The
first treatment of only a few minutes
so far restored her that she dismissed
her carriage and walked seven blocks
to her home.
Such cases as these nre a daily oc
currence, but are never made public
unless especially requested by some
grateful patient who desires that oth
ers may learn of their cure and like
wise be made well.
Owing to the many remarkable
cures performed since his arrival here
and the large number of afflicted who
were unable to get treatment the past
two weeks, the Boy Phenomenon has
consented to extend his sta3 in Rock
Island several .weeks longer. There
fore those desiring to be cured will
have another opportunity, but must
call at once as no new cases will be
taken after this week Saturday. Of
