BALL DATES FILLED
Rock Island to Play Exhibitions
at Keokuk April
15 and 16.
HAGZEMAH TO ARRIVE TODAY
Pitcher Heard From at Ills Home In
Michigan Other Diamond
Manager Ros Thornton has filled
pril li and 16, the only two open
!ates for exhibition games prior to
'he leginning of the scheJule season.
!n those dajs the hx-al team vvi'.l
plaj- Keokuk at the latter eity. Origi
.ially the Milwaukee American asso
ciate u club was to hate met Hock
Island on the 15th and 16th, but the
arrangements fell through, and for
the past (fk the management has
lieen easting aloiit for dates with
'ther desirable clubs'. Ke kuk is in
the Iowa league and boasts tf an ag
gregation that will make it inter
cepting for Thornton's string.
Word has come from Jlagerman,
the Oxford. Mich., twirler. whose si
lence has occasioned wrnie worry
here. He wires that he will rrobnbly
arrive tonight. Hugh Lalljr was due
yesterday, hut he has informed the
management that he can not get here
before tomorrow. Lilly's home is in
Iowa. He is signed to try for posi
tion in the outfield. Hock Island made
an effort to secure his services last
season, but another club had a prior
claim on him and refused to release
Two More Day for Nin'.
Hut two more dajs remain in which
you can send in jour nominations for
a name for the Rock Island team.
Italloting on named is to start next
Monday. Your nomination must be
"n Saturday if jou expect to have it
receive consideration in the contest.
While a great many names have
!een proposed, the one you have in
mind and have not jet sent in mac be
the one to be adopted. In the event
it is jou will be given a ticket that
will entitle jou to see free of cost all
games played on the home grounds
luring the approaching season.
Donnelly Haa Kleren.
Frank Donnelly, of Springfield, an
nounces that he has signed two new
pitchers and says he goes on the
theory that a club can not have too
many for a tryout at the beginning
of the season. Ills new men are old
"Dad" I lark, once a National league
-tar. and Harland Conover. who was
wth Dallas in the Texas league last
-eason. This makes II pitchers for
Springfield to start with.

Hnllaney Catcbea On.
Doiuinick MuManej' seems to be
making a hit in Columbus. The Co
lumbus Capital says of him: "Mulla
ney and Kihni will make a great fight
for first base. The former has been
under the weather most of the time
since his arrival and has only begun
real practice. Kihni put on a suit
yesterday for the firt time and his
work showed that Mullaney will have
no easy job to hold his place. Mulla
ney Iid practically Ms first work yes
terday. He covered first in great
style, pulling not ones out of the sky
or scooping them from the ground.
His style is easy and he has a tremen
dous reach. It will have to le a wide
throw that gets by him.
The :rkermall Case.
The report started in Chicago last
week to the effect that Walter Kcker--all,
the Cniversity of Chicago foot
ball plater, would wear a Dubmpie
uniform this season caused much gos
sip among the fans. Now that Ecker
sail has announced that he will not
turn professional there is no pnrticu

shown that Kckersall was much of n

April '."reek's Had Hoy."
April 8. "The Fatal Weduing."
Apdil 'J. "Th- Old Plantation."
One of the strongest comedy dra
mas ever seen in the city will be pre
r.enied tomorrow evening. The name
i f the production is "The Fatal Wed
ding." Aside from the plot, which
deals not only with true, but heart
felt incidents, the main features of
this plaj- are the scenic effects pr
iluced. First of all. the miit noteworthy-
si-eue is a correct reproduc
tion t.t the famous pallisadea on the
Hudson on a winter's night, showing
t-ne of the most realistic snow storm
effects eter produced. This scene
alone brings forth rounds of applause.
Other scenes of equally strong inter
est are the interior of the famous
('race church, a correct reproduction
of the New York conrt of justice, and
the interior of a counterfeiter's den.
These scenes go to make up one of
Xite strongest plays imaginable.
A tale of chivalrj-, a story of ro
mance, a story of intense heart in
terest, told in a graphic manner and
framed in a picturesque and brilliant
selling, is the latest of successful
;iys. "The Old Plantation," which
comes Sat urday.
"Peck's Had Hoy," which comes to
night, and returns again Sunday, will
delight every small boy, for there is
nothing thort of a circus that will
make the eyes of a small boy sparkle
with delight as apiickly as the an
nouncement of the coming of this
p!aj. Hut not only does the small
boj- enjoj- it. but adults as well, for
it carries them back to the days of
long ago. and for the time they for
get all cares and imagine themselves
back in their boyhood days. The play
is full of bright and sparkling special
ties, catchy music, combined with the
bad boy, making it one of the most
entertaining of plays.

WORK IN THE PARKS
Beauty Spots of the City Receiv
ing Attention of Com
missioners. LONG VIEW TO HAVE BANS STASD
One In Spencer Square to be Re
moved There- Concerts In,
With the opening of spriny the
.jarks of the city are receiving: atten
tion, and it will be a matter of only
a few days now when the flowers will
be brought from the hot houses and
planted to blossom and grow and de
.ight those who frequent these beauty
pots in the citj
Longview park, the 40-acre plot in
the southern liaiits, is to rise to the
l'gaitj of a ban 1 stand this summer.
The one in Spencer square that the
council has decided to replace with a
larger and more ornamental truc
ture, is to be removed there to a loca
tion to be selected by Commissioner
l F. Gaet jer.
A new foundation will be built for
it, and the carpenter and painter will
do the rest. Perhaps during the sum
mer there will be a series of concerts
in Longview. where there is plenty of
room for all who wish to invade the
grounds on such occasions. The con
certs that were provided bj' subscrip
tion by merchants in Spencer square
in years past were popular, but they
hew such an outpouring of people
that not alone the square was con
gested, but the surrounding streets
were filled with humanity, and vehi
cles. Too crowded for warm weather.
Commissioner tiaetjer sat's there is
room for the whole city out at his
park, and the idea of having music
there at intervals the coming summer
doubtless will strike a popular chord
with the public. The plan is to place
the stand on the highest spot in the
grounds in order that the music will
carry not only to all parts of the
park, but down into the residence sec
tion. So thut if you do not desire to
walk to the park, j'oii can sit on your
porch and enjoj- the concert.
Other Loncrtew Improvements.
There are other improvements con
templated at Longview this spring
and summer. The council has made
an appropriation for grading, and
there will be more funds available
when the annual apportionment is
made by the council. Of course there
will not be sufficient funds to under
take any extensive work, but a little
can be done, with a view to continu
ing it from year to jear. Hy adher-
:ng to this plan it will be only a few
years until the park will have all the
adornments that it was-contemplated
it should by those who donated the

BEFORE FROST IS GONE
Farmers sav- the frost is not out of
the ground sate in a verj" few places
where there is a southern exposure
or the siiil is particularly sandy.
Down a foot or 18 inches frozen
ground is found when an excavation
is made and frost is met with to a
thickness of from one to two feet. On
this showing it appears that it will not
ntirelv disapiear until well toward
Though there is still frost in the
ground the roads are settling and dry

ood prtgress with their work. With
in the last three dajs. there has been
a general ktart made in the hotting of
oats, breaking sod and other work of
the early part of the season.

One Minute Cough Cure gives immedi
ate relief in all cases of cough, croup
ami la grip because it does not pass
immediately into the stomach, but
takes effect right at the heat of the
trouble. It draws out the inflamma

permanently bj' enabling the lungs to
contribute life-giving and life-sustaining
oxygen to the blood and tissues.
One Minute Cough Cure is pleasant to
take and it is good alike to v omig and

WATER GROWING CLEARER:
FILTERS DOING THIIR WORK
There has been a marked improve
ment in the character of the citj' wat
er during the last few davs. It is now
nearly as clear as it was before the
spring thaw began. There is a noticea
ble change in the color of the water in
the river. A slight fall has been in pro
gress for several days and instead of
increasing muddiness, as might be ex
pected at this time as the ice goes out
and the snow melts in the north, the
condition of the water has steadilj- im
proved. The filters are now able to
do their duty in creditable manner.
