Loser The Careers of
Eben M. Byers of Tittsburg recently
won the twelfth amateur championship
of the United States Golf association.

ton Golf and Country club, Toronto, by
2 up in the thirty-six hole finals on the
links of the Englewood (N. J.) Golf

club. Byers made one of the pluckiest
uphill fights ever seen on a golf course,
being at one time 4 down.
- The avin was, of course, immensely
popular for the reason that the golfers
did not relish the Idea of having the
title go across the border. For all that,
the rousing sendoff that was given the
Teteran Canuck at the finish must have
made him feel like a hero.
Lyon has made hundreds of friends
by this latest invasion into the states,
and whenever he plays again there will
always be a large number ready to
flock to his standard.
Byers deservedly won. He 'has been
knocking at the championship door for
several years. This makes the third
time he has reached the finals. Byers
has been playing golf for eight years.
Young Byers, trim in knickerbockers
and with a style modeled on the meth
od of classie St. Andrews and Sand
Tvlch. was a contrast In every way to
the stocky, gray haired old time ama
teur cricket player who stood in flan
nel trousers and light shirt, as if ready
to bowl or bat.
Both the golfers who battled In the
finals for the amateur championship
were men of championship cali!er.
Byers when at Yale was captain of
the team and won the Yale golf cham
pionship. In the national championship of 1902
Byers was runner up to Louis N.
James at Glen View (near Chicago)
and a year later to Walter J. Travis at
Nassau (Glen Cove. X. Y.).' Last year
at Wbeaton, 111., Byers put out Jerome

George S. Lyon of the Lambton Golf
and Country club of Toronto is the
only golfer from a foreign club to have
lasted to the final In an American
amateur ciiampionnhip. Iong regarded
an the tet cTirketer in Canada, Lyon

Beloit (Wis.) Pastor Addrewd Spec
tator mt a Sandar Ilall Uaiae.
The novelty of a religious address
between Innings at a Sunday baseball
game was given to a big Beloit (Wis.
crowd the other day, when the Iiev.
Joseph Carden, rector of St. Paul's
Episcopal church, one of the fashion
able congregations of Beloit, preached
on the diamond. The sermon was giv
en at the request of the management
of the City league, says a Beloit dlu
Two games were scheduled, and
when the first was over Dr. Carden
was Introduced and spoke for seven
teen minutes, using the Fourth Com
mandment for his text, "ltemember
the Sabbath day, to keep It holy."
The fact that It had been advertised
that he would speak drew numerous
pronfinent citizens to attend who are
not frequenters of Sunday games.
Mr. Carden presented the rights of
all men to .seek recreation on Sunday
according to the dictates of their own
conscience and said as there was a
state law against playing ball on Sun
day every person participating was a
law breaker. Turning to Mayor Cun
ningham, he said:
"If I were mayor of Beloit or the
head official of the county games
would be stopped until the laws were
changed, and I wouldn't let any one
buy liquor ou Sunday either."
After discussing public morals Mr.
Carden said ioor men should be care
ful to keep the law, as their violations
made it easier for the wealthy classes
to violate the law and do greater dam
age than the ioor men could do. Mr.
Carden took the meat trust to task.
saying its members were canning hoofs
and horns for workingmen to eat.
The preacher said he considered the
matter of Sunday observance a thing
for individual discretion. Working
men had as much moral and religious
right to be present there as the wealthy
men had to seek pleasure and recrea
tion in their automobiles.
Mr. Carden spoke strongly against in
temperance, saying It was the worst
evil workingmen had to contend with.
He expressed sympathy with working
men in their daily struggles and urged
a high ideal In life. He thought they
should try to obtain a law requiring
weekly pay days and cash payments
Instead of checks on banks to be cashed
in saloons or stores.
Mr. Carden came to Beloit recently
from WInthrop. Mass., and has gained
popularity with the men. It Is doubtful
if the Sunday sermon will be repeated,
however, for while the speaker received
the most respectful attention and was
heartily applauded many '"fans" are op
posed to the idea.
FAME FROM WHISTLING.
All WnMlrlne-ton Trylnn: to Imitate
('onsmmnan Fnlkfpnon'n Trills.
The last hour of the first session of
the Fifty-ninth congress was enlivened
by sougs and whistling, the whistling
being a feature contributed by Kepre
sentative F. B. Fulkerson of the
Fourth Missouri district, says a Wash
Ington correspondent of the New York
Mr. Fulkerson whistled to the amuse
ment of both his colleagues and the
galleries. There was a peculiar trill
to his warbling notes, and the acoustic
properties of the hall of the house of
representatives aided in impressing up
on the audience the talent of the con
gresslonal whistler and the happy se
lection of his airs.
Even Uncle Joe Cannon was affected
by the reverberating echoes and re
echoes of the Fulkerson trill. Since
then everybody from the small boy to
the lingering society belle in Washing
ton has been after that trill, and the
spell has even extended to Mr. Fulker-
son's colleagues, for a remaining mem
ber was caught the other day In a
Washington hotel lobby practicing the
Fulkerson mouth pucker.
There is an interesting unpublished
story of the discovery of Mr. Fulker
son's whistling talent. -
Last spring, not long after Senator
Warner came ou to Washington, it
was observed by some one of the Mis
souri colony in Washington that there
were so many new members, and 'Re
publicans at that, that there should be
a special meeting of all Missourians
at the national capital, In due time
Carroll hall was secured for the occa
sion, and one Saturday night all the
Missourians in Washington were on
hand to meet one another and become
better acquainted. " i
The programme was arranged so that
each one of the new Republican mem
bers from the state should be called on
for an impromptu talk. Finally it came
Fulkerson's turn to do something. So
completely had the federal pie ques
tion and the greatness of old Missouri
been gone over by the previous speak
ers that some one suggested that if
nothing else could be said Fulkerson
should just whistle, not dreaming that
the request was made of one of the
most expert whistlers In the country.
Mr. Fulkerson complied and enter
tained the Missourians in fine style.
That was the way Fulkerson's warble
was discovered, at least to Missourians

ALL OVER BODY
Eruptions Appeared on Chest, and
Face and Neck Were All Broken
Out Scales and Crusts Formed
Iowa Lady Has Great Faith
in Cuticura Remedies for Skin
CURE BY CUTICURA
"I had an eruption appear on my
chest and body and extend upwards
and downwards, so that my neck and
face were all broken out; also my arms
and the lower limbs as far as the knees.
I at first thought it was prickly heat.
But soon scales or crusts formed where
the breaking out was. Instead of going
to a physician, I purchased a complete
treatment of the Cuticura Remedies, in
which I had great faith, and all was
satisfactory. A year or two later the
eruption appeared again, only a little
lower; but before it had time to spread
I procured another supply of the Cuti
cura Remedies, and continued then- usa
until the cure was complete. It is now
five years since the last attack, and
have not seen any signs of a return. I
have taken about three bottles of the
Cuticura Resolvent, and do not know
how much of the Soap or Ointment, aa
I always keep them with me; probably
one half dozen of each. t
"I decided to give the Cuticura Rem
edies a trial after I had seen the results
of their treatment of eczema on an
infant belonging to one of our neigh
bors. The parent took the child to the
nearest physician, but his treatment did
no good. So they procured the Cuticura
Remedies and cured her with them.
When they began using Cuticura Rem
edies her face was terribly disfigured
with sores, but she was entirely cured,
for I saw the same child at the age of
five years, and her mother told me the
eczema had never broken out since. I
have more faith in Cuticura Remedies
for skin diseases than anything I know
of. I am, respectfully yours, Emma E.
Wilson, Liscomb, Iowa, Oct. I, 1905."
