Lye league, lorn Loftus of Dubuque,
one ot the best known baseball men I

at i ue meeting at. me sncrman nouse
at Chicago yesterday afternoon. A
resolution introduced by Wilson Ber
ing of Decatur unanimously carried
declaring for the wiping out of all
past ' differences, together with the
idea of the circuit being composed of
two halves, "north and south" or "east
and west" whose interests were at
variance. The meeting wound up in
a love feast.
The election of Mr. Loftas resulted
from the suggestion of Secretary Row

S.tou of Rock Island and Judge Fox
ot Peoria was found to be as firm as
in. the morning. This was developed
in discussion without any ballot being
taken. W. A. Hosenfield of Rock Is
land, swing how things stood, moved
that the league divide the mouey in
the treasury and disband, but though
the meeting was working under the
head of miscellaneous business, he
was ruled out of order.
Mr. Bering then rose and urged that
if it was impossible to proceed the
league be disbanded in a business
like way and the oelegates separate I
ir. an orderly manner instead of
splitting as hostiles. Others were
called lipou and voiced the same sen
timents. Someone having suggested
that the names of the two candidates
be placed in a hat, the one drawn out
being chosen, Mr. Sexton rose to ob
ject, but declared in the course of his

CAUSED BY HUMORS IH THE BLOOD
The skin is provided with countless pores and glands, through
which an evaporation is going on continually, day and night. This is'

their healthy condition, and enable
So long as the blood js pure and rich the skin will be free from
eruption or disease, but when the circulation becomes infected with
acids and humors its nourishing and healthful properties are lost, and
its acrid, humor-laden condition causes irritation and inflammation ol
the delicate tissues and fibres of the pores and glands, and the effect is
shown in Eczema, Acne, Tetter, Salt Rheum, or somelother distressing,
disfiguring skin disease.
These humors get into the
blood through a deranged or inactive
condition of the system. Those
members whose duty it is to collect
and expel the refuse matter of the
body fail to properly do their work,
and this surplus or waste matter is
left in the system to sour and fer
ment and be absorbed into the
blood. There are also certain
other humors which get into the
blood from without. The juice or
milk from poisonous plants, such
as poison oak, poison ivy, nettle
rash, etc., enters through the open
pores of the skin and tafkes root in
the blood. This causes a breaking
out which remains'for a time and
then disappears, but returns at
certain seasons of each year.
The cause of all skin troubles ccn be traced to some kind of humor
in the blood. Smooth, healthy skins are only possible where the circu
lation. is pure; and therefore thexure of any skin affection can only
come through a thorough cleansing of this vital fluid. Salves, washes,
lotions, etc:, are valuable only for their ability to keep the skin clean,
