One Jupiter P;uvius got in his work
beautifully all over the Three-Eye
j league yesterday, and not a contest was
I played. That leaves Rock Island with
but two games played out of six sched
uled so far, having fared the worst of
any team excepting Springfield.
As today is an off day, there will be
a postponed game. Rock Island had ar
ranged to go to Springfield to play off
one of the contests that was missed
there, but yesterday's rain left a post
poned game at Decatur, and under the
constitution the team is required to
stay at Decatur, the provision being
intended to avoid useless traveling.
Davenport will not play today, as the
time is needed for traveling, and at
noon the team departed for Decatur to
play at that place tomorrow. Thej
shifting of the other teams takes Rock
Island to Bloomington, Dubuque to
Peoria, and Cedar Rapids to Spring
field. Onto Iteeri'M I'itrbluK.
Since last season the Rock Island
management has kept watch for Pitch
er Ed Reed, who last year was with
Terre Haute, and being released, sign
ed here. He accepted transportation,
but failed to report and then dropped
out of sight. Now President Sexton
has learned that he is playing with
Springfield. Ohio, in the Central league.
Today a message was sent to Secretary
Farrell, of the National Association of
Minor Leagues, requesting that Reed
b3 blacklisted. Mr. Reed must come
around or go to the brush.

Let's see wasn't there a how; from
somewhere down about Bloomington
soon after the Sexton schedule was
adopted against the plan to put Bloom
ington at Cedar Rapids for the opening
game? Wasn't it said that the weath
er way out at the northwest end of the
circuit would likely be bad? Well,
Rock Island has been playing in th
-south and has missed four out of six
:ames on account of the weather,
bloomington, playing the north end of
:he circuit has missed but one.
Decatur Herald: The Rock Island
team shows great enthusiasm and that
quality specified as ginger. They boot
ed Decatur players and made com
-Rents on the work and generally put
! fe into the contest. Thornton made
1 poor throw to the plate and his for
.litr team mates called his atentiou
to it in a way calculated to make Ross
;aw the earth.
At last the fond hopes of all Deca
tur fans are about to be realized. It is
tated on the very best of authority
that within the next few days Ed. lit
Krcbs will be back in the came.

old Terre Haute Three-Eye L-ague
team and later with Bloomington am'

smiling countenance of "Sunny" Jin
is greatly missed around the Three
Eye circuit. '
If anybody thinks bail players are
:i tough set and beyond all hope of re
demption, they will do well to bear in
mind that on the Decatur team there
ure over a half dozen men that are as
true to their religion as ran be found
anywhere in the country.

Decatur Herald: The Decatur ball
ieam, almost to a man, was feeling de
cidedly blue last night over the knock
ng indulged in by fans because of yes
terday's result. The knockers got in
their work good and plenty and many
who never before thought of using
their hammers are working their heads
off. Ixxk at the Boston Americans
for instance. Twice acknowledged
champions of the world, they started
ut almost exactly the same way last
season and finished at the top. The
best of ball teams fall down at the
beginning of the season. What has
Springfield done and she carried off
the penant last year? Come out of it
now, you knockers. Would you be as
loud in your praises if they had won
ail the games they have played thus
far as you are in your knocking?
The firemen cf engine house No. 1
made HankWalter a present of a hand
some silk umbrella at Decatur as a
token of their esteem to the former
Decatur player and to show their ap
preciation of his loyalty to the place
he calls home. Hank accepted the gift
with delight, but could not find words
to express his true feelings and after a
few laudible attempts was compelled
to give it up. Hank was a great friend
of the fire boys during his stay in De
catur and spent most of his time witL.
them even taking part in many of their
runs to fires. The umbrella has a

John I. Taylor of the champions pre

All the news all tb time THE
Women Are Detarmired to Wear
Them the Dressmakers
ACTUALLY SEE 00D IN THEM
Do Away With Skirts and Make
Walking Much More
"Every woman in the country will
cave hoops on before fall."
That was the prophecy which went
forth at Chicago last night at the
monthly meeting of the Dressmakers'
club. Mine. M. J. Hosac. president of
the club, told all about the excellent
attributes of the hoop, while Miss
Anna Schubert, corresponding secre
tary, showed just how easily and ion
venieutly the skirt can be worn.
"There is a great demand for the
hoop-skirt in Chicago, and they can
not be made fast enough to supply
those who want them," said lime. Ho
sac. "And no wonder. Just see how
beautifully they set on the figure and
how easy it is to walk in them." She
pointed to Miss Schubert, who march
ed back and forth amid shrill fe-minine
notes of applause. Then the speaker
Pom Airily With Skirt.
"Women who have not worn them
say 'I will never put one of those hor
rid eld things on,' but when they have
ence tried them they are in ecstacy
over the 111 and bring ail their friends
in to get hoops, too. The hoop does
away with the i.ecessily of wearing a
large number of skirts to get the Hare
effect so much desired, and it is found
to be both graceful and comfortable.
"Women think there is trouble aboir
walking in them, but see how easily
-Miss Schubert walks. Then women
declare that it is difficult to board :
street car or get into a carriage with
hoops. But watch Miss Schubi-rt."
The cor re spoud'ng secretary hen

agnary carriage step, and tlitted bad
again to the lloor, with a dexte-rity

"And sti'l other women tiling that

Decision to Ammerman.
Kid Ammerman and Hayes Muhs
went to Buffalo Monday night and e n
gaged in a fistic contest. After the
two had been mixing up for nearly
three rounds, the fight was called and
the decision given to Ammerman be

has been beaten twice by Corbett,

Hart May Fight Fitz.

Hart, the heavyweight pugilist, has left
for his home in Louisville. Before
leaving he made the declaration that
he had received an offer to fisht Fitz-
simmons July 4 in the west. Until
these negotiations are settled he will
remain In Louisville. Hart was disap
pointed over his affair with Wille last
night, but thinks he can draw better
in his next contest.
Changeable Weather Causes Disease.
Breathe Hyomei and Cure Catarrh.
The changeable weather of spring,
with Its warm days and cold nights,
is responsible for a great increase
:n the number of cases of catarrh.
It is now that Hyomei, the only
guaranteed treatment for catarrh that
cures without stomach doling, should
be used in every home.
For more than a century physicians
have been sending persons suffering
from catarrh to Egypt, Colorado, or
Australia, where the pure hea'.ing air
would cure the disease. For one per
son who could take this trip, thous-
ands have been compelled to stay at
home and continue their daily toil.
To these sufferers who could not
change their climatic conditions, we
offer Hyomei, a method by which pure
air impregnated with nature's own
remedies for the cure of catarrh, can
be inhaled by every suXTerer in his or
her home. Breathed through the uea;
pocket inhaler that comes with every
outfit, its healing. v latilo. antiseptic
fragence reaches the lungs and air pas
sages as no stomach closing possibly
can do. It gives immediate relief and
makes lasting cures.
The con.plete outLt. consisting of
the inhaler, medicine dropper, and
bottle of Hyomei, costs only one dol
lar, and extra bottles of Hyomei. if
needed, can be procured for fifty cents.
Proof that the Hyomei treatment
will do all that is claimed for it is
found in the guarantee under which
H. O. Rolfs sells it, an agreement to
pay back the price, if the purchaser
can say that Hyomei Las not given
