WILSON HAS BAD INNING

Bench for Kicking.
Ifock Island at Peoria.
Clinton at Bloomington.
Dubuque at Springfield.
Cedar Rapids at Decatur.
Bloomington, Aug. 8. Rock Island
and Blomington each took ono of a
louble header yesterday. The first
would have been a shut out against
the home team had it not been for dar
ing base running by Graham. In the
second contest Wilson went to pieces
in the fifth after keeping the game
well in hand up to that time and five
runs resulted. Wilson has a bad arm
and will be given a week's rest.
O'Leary was benched in the second
game for kicking and Eng went be
hind the bat, Cook going to first,
Swalm to left and Neal to right. Cook's
sensational catch of Iarry Donovan's
line drive while playing first was th3
feature of the day.

Because he was badly needed, it is
given out. Manager Donovan was rein
stated by President Holland in time to
catch the second game and give Wil
son a rest.
Rock Island outbatted and outplayed
the Bloomers in both contests and
should have won both handily. Score

Bloomington Pantagraph. It is ob
vious that the Dubuque management
is seeking to get as much money out
of the team as jMissiblo by the sale of
the star players ami it is time for the
remainder of the league magnates to
sit up and take notice. Now comes
the sale of Pitcher Wilder to Peorin
for $500 and infielder Dcringer. Wht,n
James Agnew had charge of the team,
he declined to sell Pitcher Harry
Swalm to any opposing team in the
league, a policy that has always held
good in this league. Hadley was sold
to Terre Haute and now Wilder goes
to Peoria. It is probable thnt Marry
Swalm will be the next to go. By the
time the season ends, the players let t
on the team may be simply a bunch oF
amateurs of no value to a club that
may succeed Dubuque. If the league
can prevent the dismemberment of tin1
team until it becomes valueless, some
thing should be done before it is too
late. The situation is new to the lea
gue and will require some delicate
handling. The disposal of the be:-t
players would lead to the supposition
that Dubuque will not be in the league

The most eminent medical scientists
are unanimous in the conclusion that
the generally accepted limitation of
human life is many years below the
attainment possible with the advanced
knowledge of which the race is now
possessed. The critical period, that
determines its duration, seems to be
between 50 and 60; the proper care of
the body during this decade cannot be
too strongly urged; carelessness thoo
being fatal. to longevity. Nature's best
helper after 50 is Electric Bitters, thj

IS NOW TOO BIG TO PARADE
Barnum & Bailey's Elimination of
Feature No Longer an Experiment.
The eltnination of the street parade
is no longer an experiment with th-i
Barnum & Bailey circus. This is the
big show's third year without a prelim
inary procession, and the innovation,
the management declares, has proved
a popular and successful one from
every point of view.
A representative of the show, i.i
speaking of the matter recently sai.l:
The Barnum & Bailey circus is literally
too big to give a parade, even if it
were considered desirable or neces
sary. As a matter of fact, there is no
general demand for the circus parad
and every other circus management in
America would cut it out if it was not
i necessary means of advertising their
show and arousing interest in the per
formances. The remark is frequently
made that the Barnum & Bailey circus
is "the only show in the world that
would dare to eliminate the parade.'
The reason for this is obvious.
"Barnum & Bailey do not need th?
parade as a means of advertising th
show or attracting the public to the
circus grounds. The Barnum & Bail?y
name, its great reputation, and the
fact that the public is aboslutely as
suied of a superb performance, am
sufficient to crowd its tents without,
the questionable aid of a street dis
play. A parade is undoubtedly a good
advertisement for a show that nee.ls
it. Barnum & Bailey do not need K.
Who ever heard of an Irving, a Soth
ern, or a Marlowe giving a street par
ade? In the dramatic world parades
are confined to repertoire shows, min
strel and Uncle Tom's Cabin aggrega
tions. No circus can afford to be
grouped in such a class, and a circus
that cannot crowd its tents without a
street parade has something wrong
with its performance and reputation.
"There are. of course, other reasons
for eliminating the parade besides the
belief that processions are no longer
necessary for advertsing purposes. Ii
we could be absolutely sure of arriv
ing in town by daybreak, day after day,
it might be possible to give the parade
simply as a free offering to the .pub
lic; but with our five long trains of
cars, this is too much to expect of the
railroad companies. In many instances
it is eight or nine o'clock before it is
unloaded and the paraphernalia trans
ferred to the show grounds. This
leaves just sufficient time to erect t ho
big tents and prepare for the after
noon performance. To take several
hundred men away from the show
grounds at the most critical time in
the morning, in order to give a parade
would mean delay in opening, and co l
sequent discomfort to the public. To
compel thousands of people to stand
out in front of the entrance, in the ho;
sun or rain, because the giving of th
parade has delayed the opening for an
hour or more, is positively cruel; but
there is frequently no help for it wh.'n
parades are given. By eliminating th
parade the public is also saved a long
and often uncomfortable wait on the
streets pending the always more ov
less delayed procession, which at best
has nothing new to offer, to say noth
ing of the interference with public
traffic and the business of the city'd
merchants. Many municipal govern
ments have recognized the latter fact
by either refusing to give licenses for
parades, or by making the tax so high
as to be prohibitive.
"The elimination of the street par
ade means a very much better per
formance in every way. The horses
and elephants, instead of being worn
out by several hours marching through
the streets, are rested, fresh and full
of life and ginger; the performers
not being overworked, give their acts

instead of being sleepy and indolent

"At first there was considerabl-i
skepticism on the part of the press as
to the wisdom of the new departure,
but criticism from this source has en
tirely ceased. Day after day, in cities
where the show has exhibited, the
management is commended for their
good sense and foresight."
The absence of the parade is, accord
ing to all reports, more than compen
sated for by this year's arenic acts ami
"thrillers." There are a number cf
big sensations, and the structural stel
