City in the Circuit.

President Rosenfield Confirms Report
That the Pennant Raising Will
Take Place May 12. ,
The coming week sees the opening
of -baseball -operations in the Three
Rye league. This statement under
the present schedule carries a broader
meaning than it would under any oth
er schedule the league has ever had,
for the opening next week will be not
only in four towns, but in- eight. Ev
ery city will see baseball, and that
within two days. For the Islanders,
too, the schedule provides for a quick
introduction to the southern end of
the circuit. Within half a month they
will have measured strength with ev
ery team in the circuit except Clin
ton. After the Quincy series there will
be but one more exhibition game.
Tuesday the Islanders go to TiskiJ.wa,
.loe Scott's home town, to meet the
semi-pros of that place. Joe will pitch
and accept a bouquet. ;
ConfinuM Pennant Ralitlajr Date.
President Rosenfield of the Rock Is
land Baseball association today con.
firmed the rumor that there are to bo
two openings at the Island City park
this season. May 2, when Dubuque
plays here for the first regular game
of the spring; and May 12, after the
Islanders have been to the south end
of the circuit, when the pennant will
be raised with Cedar Rapids here.
On both occasions there will be a
parade with a band and appropriate
ceremonies calculated to give the
spectators something for their money.

WOLGAST HAS SHADE
BEST OF KID BEEBE
Milwaukee Favorite Awarded Decision
In Home City Over, the,
' ' Eastern .Boxer.
Milwaukee, April 25. Ad Wolgast
of this city bested Kid Beebe of Phil
adelphia in 10 fast ruuds of fighting
before the Badger Athletic club last
night and was given the decision by
the referee." The men put up a good
fight, with plenty of action all the
way, and . the local pride had a clear
shade atithe finish.
Wolgast hit' the harder and landed
numerous telling blows on the body of
the eastern crack, which tended" to
slow the kid' up perceptibly toward
the close. Beebe found it hard to
penetrate Wolgast's : crouch and had
to wait for Ad to loosen up and come
to ..him before he could laud with ef
fect. The Quaker boxer showed plenty
of cleverness and proved that he mer
ited the excellent reputation that pre
ceded him. In the mixups he landed
hard and often, but his blows did not
have much effect on the sturdy Wol
gast. The men boxed at long range
for periods and then would close in
and whale away from any and all
angles. In the. toe to toe exchanges
WOlgast was most times the better
because his punches carried mor
po.we,r. and the kid was invariably the
oAq to close in and clinch. Wolgast
was the stronger at tlie close

What the Kidneys Do.
Their Unceasing Work Keeps Us
' Strong and Healthy.
All the blood in the body passes
through the kidneys once every three
minutes. . The kidneys filter the blood.
They work night and - nay.-When
healthy they remove about 500 grains
of impure matter daily, when ' un
healthy sojne part of this impure mat
ter is left in the blood. This brings
on many diseases and symptoms
pain In the back, headache, nervous
ness, hot, dry skin, rheumatism, gout,
gravel, disorders of the eyesight and
hearing, dizziness, irregular heart,
debility, drowsiness, dropsy, deposits
in the urine, etc. But if you keep the
filters right you will have no trouble
with your kidneys.
, John Taylor of 743 Fourteenth street,
Rock Island, 111., says: "For some
time I was troubled . with dull pain3
across the small of my back and across
my loins. I felt that they were getting
gradually a little more severe. I knew
kidney trouble was the cause and I
was anxious to stop the trouble before
it Jsecame too serious. I was unable
to do this, although I tried various
remedies and consulted my physician.
Doan's Kidney Pills were recommend
ed to me and I procured a box at the
Harper House drug store. I only used
one box in accordance with the direc
tions, but they cured me completely.
I know of many others who have been
cured by Doan's Kidney Pills and I
take pleasure in endorsing them to
others who are troubled with kidney
complaint of any kind." .
