President Holland Calls Meeting
of Three-Eye League
WILL. ELECT DIRECTORS ALSO
Sinking Fund. Idea I u bo Attacked
'by Daren port and Otber
President Ed Holland has issued a
tall for a meeting: of tlie Three-Eye
league at the Palmer house, Chicago,
Tuesday, Dee. 8, for the purpose of
choosing- a new board of directors
and determining the circuit for the
coming' season. The directors are us
ually named at the annual meeting of
the league, but that part of the rou
tine was overlooked at the recent ses
fcion in Illoomington.
The sinking fund, popular in some
iuarters and unpopular in others, is
to come in for consideration. At pres
ent there is in the league treasury
$:t,()00. It is the result of the sinking
fund idea, the turning over of 10 per
cent of the receipts of the games dur
ing the season for a contingent fee to
asfist .those clubs which are for one
reason or tfnother unfortunate.
There are those prominently inter
ested in baseball. in Duveuport and a
few of the other towns in the circuit
who have never favored the sinking
fund and .who have always contended
against it. They will a&k that the
fund be abolished or that new regula
tions be adopted which will make: the
fund one that can be drawn upon
when necessity demands it.
However, the more conservative el
ement in the league believes the link
ing fund should be left undisturbed.
Instead of taking it down, it should
be increased the eoming- season, and
held for emergency purposes only.
Mar NrM It Any Tim.
, La-.t season the league was fortun
ate enough to pull through the season
with but one change. President Sexton
'having carried the .loliet club until the
franchise was placed in Springfield.
Jt was not necessary to draw on the
sinking fund to hold the team up, the
other clubs of the league being well
sjble financially to stand an assess
ment. Kut there may come a time
when sailing will not be as smooth as
it has been in a business way thus far
with the Three-Kyc league. In the

and three or four of the clubs going
up round about the Fourth of July, it
would be nice to have a few thousand
laid away to tide over the crisis. The
sinking fund idea is a good one. lloid

Perhaps you have never thought of
it, but the fact must be apparent to
everyone that constipation is caused
by a lack of water in the system, and
the use of drastic cathartics like the
old-fashioned pills only makes a bad

Shows Well at Practice.
Iowa City, Iowa. Nov. 20. Suh
sp!eniii;l practice as the Iowa elever
is showing every night the current
week has never been seen on Iowa
field. The erratic eleven is simply
breaking all records of tluvseason for
fire, dash, speed and fierceness of as
sault. Since the wretched score of 16
to 0, made in Columbia, the team
seems regenerated. This change, of
course, gives rise to all sorts of hopes
and all sorts of predictions in Iowa
City and. naturally, Illinois is the
chief subject of speculation. The
Champaign team, after the Missouri
game, was conceded 1 lie Iowa game
without a struggle, but the condition
of the atmosphere hereabouts is now-
The coaches will make no predic
tions theinsehes, but the men are
hopeful, spirited and determined. The
great improvement in their work the
last four days is such as to warrant
almost any prediction or it would lie
if the lowans were not notoriously
inclined to disappoint cerv follower
of the game this year by sudden
changes of form.
It is this erratic playing, however,
that makes uncertain any prophecy
concerning the eleven. Consequently,
despite the practice of the last few
days. Iowa City rooters will not be
surprised if the Illini win by a score
of 20 to 0. On the other hand, no one
here will be startled if Iowa braces
and defeats the visitors 11 to 0.

of consumption have recently been ef
fected in Bussia by Kisel Zagoran-
ski, formerly a mining engineer and
now specially licensed by the Kussian
medical department to practice medi
cine in cases of tuberculosis.
Zagoranski gives out an account of
the origin of his consumption cure.
Thirty years ago he went to Siberian
mining works, where medical facili
ties were extremely limited. Zagoran
ski attended to the medical wants of
the workmen, but an old foreman of
the mine took care of the tuberculosis
eases and almost invariably cured
them. The foreman died some years
ago. confiding his tuberculosis specific
to Zagoranski, who continues to use
Hearing a rumor that John D.
Rockefeller, of the United States had
offered an immense prize for the dis
covery of a consumption cure, the
Russian consulted American Consul
Smith, who, with his brother, W. E.
Smith, began a systematic observa
tion of the cases of several patients.

acquaintance of the consul, who had

which was given under professional
medical observation. At the end of a
week the proportion of tuberculosis
bacilli in the saliva had been reduced
to 10 per cent. At the end of of six
weeks the patient had '.gained 22
pounds and there was no trace of
bacilli observable. From being un
able to walk across the room the pa
tient regained her normal strength.
This took place last spring and the
cure appears to be permanent.
Zagoranski's treatment, according
to W. E. Smith, consists merely in the
drinking of his specific in large quan
tities, together with life in the open
air and the observance of careful
Zagoranski says that, to far as he is
able to observe, the treatment does
not renew wasted tissue, but arrests
the dh-ease. At whatever stage of dis
ease the treatment is begun it kills
tuberculosis germ, leaving the system
clean so that it may be built up by a
careful diet. .
The Russian police at one time made
a strong effort to prevent Zagoran
ski's practice, but W. E. Smith se
cured him a special licence from tlie
Russian government, under which he
is now operating'. He has had many
