Gilmore, catchers; Ekimunds, Berger
and JlcBride, infieldersr and Murphy,

Have aa Auto Ride.
At Cedar Rapids the association ar
automobile ride about
ranged for an
the city for both teams, and the most
hysterical of the enthusiasts, with wt
slc, of course, and some formalities at
the park. ' ; ' ' ' ;
Cedar Rapids will not be able to
present the regular lineup this after
noon, because part jof the team is quar
antined with small pox. " But four of
the old men, outside the pitching staff,
are In condition to play. Tbe Bunnies
have, in fact, had about the hardest

' Com Ink y In the Game.
Dubuque has an unusually interest -
ing event on the opening program this
afternoon. President Com iskev of the
Chicazo White Sox was slated to nitch
the first ball and President Loftus of
the Three-Eye to catch it. . At Bloom-
Ington Mayor Holland, for four years
president of the league, was on , the
bill to toss up the sphere. Everywhere
the usual parades and band concerts
were arranged for.
Appeals to Presidents.
President Tom Loftus has sent the
following circular letter to the presl
dents of the different associations
"I want the .presidents of all clubs
to assist me in giving the public good
clean baseball. If you do, the success
of the league 13 assured, as the Amer
ican people are clamoring for good
and clean amusements, so start your
organization on a good foundation. I
insist on you instructing your man
agers and captains to give the um
pires "a square deal and when he
makes a decision to consider it final,
as he is the sole Judge of the play
anu when he makes a decision no
argument can make him change it.
The successful men in business ad
here to clean methods. Why not in
the great national game? "
"If the umpire gives a decision
against your club do not imagine he
wants to rob you, he gives tne decision
as he sees it. Do hot wake me up at
midnight with a telegram stating tha
the umpire is rotten. He Will keer
until morning. Write me a letter "the
next day, after the heat of the battle
a nd let me know if you think he is
Incompetent.- The mail is fast enough
for me to hear bad news. I. have
been connected with baseball for ovei
30 years and I have never met a dis
honest umpire, nut have seen some
awful bad - ones. . Instruct your cap
tains to make your clubs more livel:
on the ball field, as the patrons of tht
game like quick action."

The Way They Are Deflected by At
' ' mospheric Causes.
One of Uncle Sam's scientists at
Washington gives' an Interesting ex
planation of the actiou of the' wind in
preventing, the spread of sound, toward
the direction frdhi" which.' the wind
comes., ... . 1 v ' ' ' i
It Is, he. .claims' 'not the wind, as
such, that, prevents sound from trav
eling against it, but differences In the
strength of the wind. If, for instance,
the wind is stronger above than be
low or stronger at one side, its effect
will be to tilt the sound waves in one
direction or another. ;
Differences of temperature In the air
also cause deflection of the waves' of
sound. Other atmospheric causes ox
1st which deflect sound from a straight
course and prevent it from going 'as
far in certain directions as it ma y
have been expected, to go., -
, Some of the sirens iu this country
says the , scientist, produce souud
which ought theoretically to be audible
at a distance of l.otX) miles, but. ii:
fact, the authorities are satisfied li
they are heard only two miles away
The reason for the discrepancy 1h
tween calculation and experiment va
probably atmospheric deflectlou of th

- Every person who coughs should not
alarm himself with the Idea that be 1
in a bad way. Experience has con
vinced us of a fact that' there are two
distinct kinds of coughs o'uC' proceed-'
ing from an affection of", the, longs and
air tubes, as in a cold,- the' other pro
ceeding from effervescence, in the
stomach. The Jungs cough is a symp
tom which all know to require atfenr
tion, lest serious consequences ensue:
The stomach cough is a much more
simple matter and may easily be got
quit of. It is caused by the food and
drink whlcniare put Into the stomach
effervescing and producing an irrita
tion. A knowledge of this fact ought
to lead, persons so affected to ponder a
little on the nature of their ailment and
the tone of their digestive powers.
