Riflemen throughout the country

amendment reads: "
"Provided: That the trophies and

of the army,v the navy, the marine
corps and the national guard or or
ganized militia of the several states,

Commenting upon the Tuesday
meeting of the Three-Eve league
"Hek" in today's Chicago Tribune
"As main wick of the Three-Lamp
league Tom Loftus should cause that
sputtering institution to burst forth
effulgently. We always thought those
sportive but tircsomely fussy drv
goods merchants needed somebody
like this truly inspired genius to
throw them down and put shoes on
them. Assuming that Tom
Loftus may be the subject of timely
reminiscence, it may be recalled that
in 187S he was captain of the Peoria
team which beat the famous Cincin
nati Reds 3 to 1. With Loftus at that
time were Charley Radbourne, Cliff
Carroll, Dave Rowe, Jack Rowe, Bill

For a Real Yachting Trophy.
; There is much earnest talk among
prominent yacht owners of providing
a new trophy to represent the suprem
acy of American yachting and holding
it up to invite the challenge of the
yachting world, but on more liberal
terms and conditions than the arrange
ment now existing. The mediciue that
represents supremacy in the American
home today is the celebrated Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters. Through its
ability to effect cures it has progressed
so rapidly that now no one ever ques
tions or doubts its intrinsic value. It
will restore the appetite, aid digestion,
keep the bowels open and thus curing
and preventing sick headache, bloat
ing, heartburn, vomiting, dyspepsia, in
digestion, biliousness, colds, grippe,
spring fever, general debility or ma
laria. Try a boUle today and see for
yourself what a wonderful medicine
it is. .
services mentioned for the officers
know how to shoot and take as much
if not more interest In shooting than
the privates and non-commissioned of
ficers, generally speaking. The war
department looks with great favor on
the interest taken in shooting by the
officers as it realizes that no officer
can properly instruct his men in this
most essential feature of a soldier's
work unless he himself is familiar
with the rifle and is a good shot.
The enthusiasm generated among
the officers at these national matches
is no less valuable than the experience
gained by them and by the enlisted
men and never until now has any
proposition been advanced to shut the
t fficers out of the matches. The argu
ment that it is the men and not the
officers who do the shooting certainly
cannot apply to the pistol matches for
?n mosf cases it is the officers who
are armed with pistols and not the
men, yet under the amendment the
officerswould ' be harred from thq
pistol as well as the rifle matches.

29. Jacob Gordin is the author f
the play and it is unquestionably one
of the biggest plays of human interest
our stage has known in years. The
purpose of the play is to illustrate
the possible crimes that may be attri
buted to racial prejudice and the ten
dency of domestic ties to degenerate
when the younger generation is sud
denly bereft of the conditions which
surrounded its childhood.1 In this play
Miss Walsh scored a most pronounced
triumph at . the Manhattan theater.

Plans for Imorovement at the
Watch Tower This Summer
Are Very Extensive.
EW FEATURES ARE ADDEC
Roller Skating Rink to Be an Attrac
tion Changes Are to Be- Made
at the Inn Building.
The fine weather which has been
prevailing the last few days acts as
a reminder and a forecast of the good
old summer time and activities at the
parks and other amusement places. -At
the head of the list of parks comes
the Watch Tower and statements to
day by Edward Krell of the manage
ment in regard to the coming season
indicate that it is to continue as one
of the most popular and the best
equipped resorts in this part of the
state. Besides the many features of
last year a large number of new ones
are to be added, and the plans for Im
provement of the park are very ex
tensive. An electric caroussel commonly
known as a "merry-go-round" is to- be
placed just north of the circle swing.
It Is to be illuminated with 150 lights
and the passengers can ride three
Another feature is to bo a roller
skating rink which will be in the form
of a circular race track. The runway
will be 150 long and 12 feet wide. On
the inside of the course chaiis and
benches and minor amusements are
to take up the space. An ornamental
roof over the track with curtains to
pull down at night will make it a de
lightful open air rink. A band has
been engaged to provide music for
the skaters every night.
A Ferris Wheel.
A 40-foot Ferris wheel of steel con
struction is another new feature.The
penny arcade will have an entirely
new set of pictures and mutic. A
scenic shooting gallery will take the
place of tb old one. A beautiful
background will show bird3 and squir
rels and the like and the huuter can
shoot all the game he likes without
killing anything. The ball throwing
games have all been placed under one
roof. This Is to clear the grounds of
the many little stands which formerly
were 'scattered everywhere.
It is very :probable that the Figure
S will be remodeled so that there will
be more dips in it.
Other things which will improve
the place, if the present plans are
completed, are the enlarging of the
dining veranda; the construction of
a number of new walks;, the opera
tion of the fountain; a new dance
floor and possibly the enlargement of
the hall by doing away with the pri
vate dining rooms on the same floor; j
and the addition of a playground for
The Friday promenades . and band
concerts will be a feature as in former
years. The baseball field will be open
to. teams during the week and on Sun
day the regular team will play.
The chutes are- to be made ready
for the rise of the water which will
result when the dam which Is being
built, is completed. The view of the
water power and also of the huge
dike on the island opposite the Tower
is expected to be one of the big at
tractions of this year. Next year in

when steaming bread or cake, etc., it does not become wet or soggy
as in the ordinary steamer. Inside can be placed four cups as shown
in cut, holding one and one-half quarts each. These are to be used in
cooking canned tomatoes, com, rice, oatmeal, custard, etc., or anything
of a like nature. The coarse vegetables, such as potatoes, corn in the
ear, turnips, beets, squash, etc., are to be loscly on the false bottom.
Meats can also be steamed, and are rendered far more juicy and ten
der cooked in this way, for Instance, a chicken or roast can be cooked
until tender in this way and placed only long enough in the oven to
brown nicely. In fact anything that can be cooked by boiling can be
much better and more quickly prepared in this way. We claim for
this invention: 1st, that it is a great fuel economist, as it will save
at least one-half of your fuel bill when . gasoline, gas or kerosene is
used, as by using this Cooker over one burner four or five articles of
food can be prepared at the same time water is being heated for tea
or coffee. If wood is used a little fire can be made under just one ,
stove lid. , 2d. Every article prepared with it Is far better than when
cooked in. the ordinary way, as all experienced cooks concede that
steam cooked foods are the best. It. is an elegant thing for keeping
meals warm, as food will keep hot without drying in the least. It
will cook any article in much shorter time than, it takes to boil it. It
economizes stove space, as with it as much can be accomplished and
as quickly with one burner as ordinarily with three or four. It does
not heat the house as when a lot of burners are called Inta use. For
cooking all kinds of vegetables it is especially adapted, as not a drop
of water touches them when in process of cooking, they are thorough
ly cooked and dry, and yet retain their sweetness and shape perfectly.
Another very important feature is that onions, turnips, etc., can be
cooked at the same time with a custard and not a trace of the onion
will appear in anything,' the strong downward current of the steam,
carrying it all off. Another invaluable feature is in the canning of
fruit, as with it six cans of fruit can be canned every oo minutes and
the fruit when steamed will retain to a far greater degree its nat
ural form and flavor. In short, no housekeeper can afford to be with
out this Cooker. The poor man certainly needs it, as in these days of
expensive fuel it means a saving to him of many dollars in the course
of a year, and as soon as their value is understood, they will become
a household necessity in every home In the land.
DIRECTIONS FOR USING Fill tea kettle two-thirds full of wa
ter, and when it comes to boiling point, stop up spout with a cork or
cloth, put over Cooker, and you are ready to begin operations.

One of the st -ong points is its adaptability, as in
the average t imily the tea kettle is called into use
three times a day. The Cooker is shown by the
cut, fits tight'y into the mouth of the tea kettle, the
spout is then closed by a cork, thus forcing all of
the steam ia'o the Cooker. The steam enters at
the top throu ;h a central tube as shown In the cut,
and as the o Uy possible outlets are at the bottom
there is a constant current downward through the
