Hugh Nicol is to manage the Peoria
earn in the Three-Eye baseball league
the coming season. Nic is financiajly
'nterestcd besides. He will move his
family from Rockford to the Distillery
city. The strongest business men of
Peoria are behind Nic and the others
who are reviving the game there.
Rock Island extends Its best wishes
to the manager in his new field. He
oerformed excellent service for this
?ity the latter part of last season, when
he took the team after two previous
unsuccessful trials with managerial
timber. Rock Island would have liked
n hold to him for another year, but he
is one who can command a better sal
ary than Rock Island can afford to pay
to a nonplaying manager.

Vice President Meidroth and Mana
ger Nicol were in conrerence with oth
er members of the Peoria association
yesterday, and at noon they announced
the ground plans for the season, which
they believe will be carried out. Lake
view park seems to be the logical loca
tion for a ball park, and it is planned
to build another amphitheatre in the
northeast corner of the park. This In
sures a safe and convenient location
for the diamond, and there will be no
danger of flooding or destruction be
cause of circtises or street shows. The
plan is to make the park the ideal ball
park, and the diamond and field per
manent in character. All of the old
barns used during the race season will
be torn down and the amphitheatre
constructed on the site. The boxes and
bleachers will be for the convenience
p.nd comfort of the public. Mr. Meid
roth says no pains or expense will be
spared in catering to the comfort of
the public; that the men interested are
in the game to stay and will spend
thousands of dollars to give Peoria
good ball and all of the park conveni
ences. Tnkr Some Hoekfnrd IMnjerw.

According to a dispatch appearing
in the. Chicago papers the Rockford
Baseball association, at a meeting yes
terday afternoon, voted to bring an ac
tion against the Three-Eye league to
prevent the transfer of the franchise
heretofore held by that city to Peo
ria. The tone of the discussions in the
Rockford papers Is contradictory to
the dope sent to the metropolitan pa
pers. The papers there say there are
a few of the more enthusiastic fans
who would like to fight, but the ma-
jjority representing the conservative
element take a common sense view of
the situation, and agree that the di
rectors of the league were privileged
to act as they did with reference to
the placing of the franchise in another
city. It was not done through spite,
as some want to believe. It was sim
ply a business proposition. Rockford
had not been delivering the goods.
Rockford has been basing its claims
on a resolution passed at the 1902
meeting held in St. Louis pledging the
eight cities to remain together four

Of course he does, and that is one
of the troubles. In fact, there are two
sure ways of getting a fall cold; one
is bundling up the shoulders and throat

cold bath is as much of a luxury in
winter as in summer, and much more

VaM to Meet Dinirultlra.
It stands to reason that the return
of winter will bring draughts and
cold winds and uneven temperature,
and there are naturally ways provided
for meeting these difficulties. If one's
circulation is stimulated: if one has
plenty of fresh air, and if clothes are
at once warm and light, it is possible
to entirely avoid colds, unless there is
catarrhal or tubercular weakness.
First, there is the important task of
stimulating the circulation, which can
be done by cold baths, proper breath
ing and exercise, especially tramping.
The cold bath is the beginning of good
health in frosty weather. It should be.
of necessity, taken in a warm room. If
the bathroom or bedroom Is not heat

Attell Out in Fifth.
St. Iouis. Mo.. Oct. 14. After four
and one-half rounds of the most scien
tific fighting ever seen in this city, Abe
Attell went down before "Brooklyn
Tommy" Sullivan, claiming a foul,
which was not allowed by the referee.
When the disputed blow was landed
Attell had jumped in the air to avoid
a punch which Sullivan aimed at his
ribs. Tommy instantly sent in a swift
uppercut at the stomach, and the blow
landed on Abe's belt. From the ring
side the blow appeared to be fair. At
tell instantly went to the floor, how
ever, while Referee Sharpe sent Sulli
van to his corner. Drs. Heinemarks
and Parrish. the club physicians, failed
to find trace of a foul. Dr. Booker was
sent for. and decided that Attell had
not been fouled. Referee Sharpe im
mediately gave the verdict to Sulli
van. There was wild excitement when
the decision was handed down.
