Decatur Review: A copy of the for
mal ruling by the national baseball
commission in the case of Albert
Jacobsen has readied the local base
ball management, and the general ver
dict is that it is "a hot one," just the
entering wedge to knocking out every
consideration that the major leagues
have grudgingly given the minors. The
old rule was that the final installment
of the drafting price of h player should
be paid 30 days after he reported. The
ruling was changed to read that it
should be paid 30 days after the player
signed a contract with the team
drafting him. In case a plav
er refuses to accept any old
terms offered him by the club or in
case a contract is not. even presented
him. an easy subterfuge, then the mi
nor league club that the player is
drafted from necessarily holds the
sack. But one view is taken of the
ruling here. It i3 another step in the
scheme of the big league magnates to
throw the hooks into the minors to a

Walter E. Perkins, whose quaint hu
mor originally aided "My Friend From
India" to success, is going to star this
season in "A Military Man," another
DuSouchet play. Since the great suc
cess of the first piece, the author has
been leisurely writing "A Military
Man." and has always said that no one
but Perkins should play the title role.
The same receipe employed in "My
Friend From India" has been followed
and the result Is said to contain the
same complexity of fun occurrences
that distinguished the first success.
M. B. Raymond promises a notelty

Asplendid supporting company has

new play, "Weather Beaten Benson,"
which had its initial presentation at

asmuch as Mr. Kendall, who wrote the
play, probably knows better than any
other living human being just what
will suit Kendall's peculiar talents, the
presumption is that the verdict of the
onlooker is not far out of the wav. And

W. B. Patton, who, with an excellent

Las Rose of Summer," he has a beau
tiful comedy which contains a story or
surpassing merit with perfect whole
someness, with exquisite delicacy, with
truest pathos and with freshest hu
more. He has delineated character,
has analyzed motives and emotions,
and has portrayed life without a single
word of action that could even suggest
offense. Mr. Patton will be here in the
new play tomorrow evening.
A great modern scenic comedy
drama, "A Hidden Crime." with a
wealth of beautiful scenery and elec
trical fountain, will ho the attraction

company is headed by John P. Ick

Pauline Fletcher, a popular western
actress. "A Hidden Crime" depicts
life in San Francisco on both sides of

its mysteries, its opium smokers and

of 'Frisco, and the sensational break
ing of a mammoth suspension bridge
are a few of the interesting things

Increase of the Navy.
The Monroe doctrine is juntas strong
as the American navy and no stronger,
and for that reason a larger and more
powerful n.' vy is recommended. Then
the other powers will have to respect
it. When the system is in a weak
ened condition you are always sus
ceptible to attacks of indirection, dys
pepsia, constipation, nervousness, in
somnia, sick headache or malaria,
fever and aguo. Strengthen the sys
tem with Hostcttcr's Stomaoh Hitters
and prevent these ailments. It has an
unequaled record of cures back of it
and thousands of grateful people-wht
have been benefited hy it have volun
tarily praised it. If yon are sb-kly 01
delicate or suffer from the effects of 1
weak stomach the Bitters will do yoc
a lot of fcood. A fair trial will con
vince you of its value.
A Power for Good.
