Tomorrow the Islanders will com

Cook has a number of new faces in
the squad and these men will be here
and will be put to work limbering up.
The work will be confined for a while
to catching flies and batting the ball
to the outfield. The condition of the
ground makes playing on the diamond
impractical, as it would make it rough
for the rest of the year. The manager
expects to get a line on the new men
before the old ones report which they
will do next Monday. Eng. -Neal,
Lundin, Scott, Howard, Borger, Dow
ers, Murpny and Swalm are expected
to don uniforms then.
There are a number of mysteries
and dark horses among the new men.
some of whom have attracted atten
tion before and others whose records
are totally in the dark. Whitney
Powers, a southpaw pitcher, and the
latest addition to the squad, is among
the latter. All that is known of him
is that he is from the wilds of Iowa
and that he has made the brush
around his j)lace fairly sizzle. The
rest of the new men and their pros
pective positions are as follows:
Pitchers Cain, Hardgrove, McKee
Catcher Gil more.
First basemen Trostlc, Frost, Vo
gel and Leverlch.
Third basemen McBride, Detweiler
Outfielders Burdette -Bull and Lev-
If these men furnish a fair quoto
of good players the team will be as
;ood or better than last year.

the mat at Dexter Park pavilion Fri
day night in the i wrestling match
which is nominally, at any rate, for
the catch as catch can championship
of the world, there will be no less
difference between them in size and
weight than most persons suppose.
The difference in measurements are
in those points which are considered
essential in a successful wrestler. In
the larger upper body and upper body
muscles Hackenschmidt has the ad
vantage. To offset this Gotch's
friends assert his greater familiarity
with catch as catch can code will

height, 6 feet 1 Inches; chest, 44;

Every true American should also take
great pride in pointing to Hostetter's

for curing ailments of the stomach,
liver and kidneys. It is the product
of American skin, and for 51 years
has been proving its ability to cure
and prevent poor appetite, dyspepsia,
indigestion, biliousness, kidney ills,
costiveness, colds, grip and malaria.
It is also an excellent spring medi

strengthen and build up . the entire
