The Moline West End9 cinched
their title of state champions by de
feating the First Regiment team cf
Chicago In a hard fought game yes
terday afternoon on Athletic field in
Moline. The game was won by the
narrow margin of C to 5, but the West
Ends had the better of the argument
throughout the contest and were "de
servedly the winners. The touchdown
which the soldiers made against them
was the "result of a fluke, while the
Moline boys earned their scores on
good hard football. Henry. Chicago
right half back, failed to kick an easy
goal after making the touchdown for
Chicago and this lost 'his team the
game as. after the West End touch
down, MacManus lifted the ball over
the bar for the extra point which de
cided the contest
Chicago Team Strong:.
The Chicago team was one of the
strongest that ever lined up on the
Moline field. All of the noted players
of whom they bragged did not appear
in the lineup, but tueir manager mod
estly stated before the contest that
the men who f.lled their places were
as good, if net better. They averaged
in the nelshtorhocd of 175 pounds to
the man and they presented a most
formidable appearance against the
West Ends, who average a f-w pounds
under the ICO mark. It was th3 gen
eral verdict of the spectators aftei
seeing the two teams practice that
the heavy Chlcagoans would have lit
tle difficulty in winning the game.
Story of the Came.
Moline received the kick at the east
goal and after making a few short
gains punted. The soldiers found they
could gain nothing on the West Ends
and they punted In turn. The ba'.l
then went back and forth for ten min
utes until on a tackle through tackle
play by the West Ends Carlmar.;
dropped the ball and Henry picked it
up on the run and went 30 yards for a
touchdown. He failed in the attempt
at kicking goal.
The West Ends came back strong
and before the half was end 2d they
bad carried the bail twice to within
short distance cf their opponents' goal
line, but on each occasion they lost it
before going over. The half endod
with the score 5 to 0 in favor of the
In the second half the West Ends
were not to be denied and on sheer
rpeed and fast play they carried the
ball down to the 10-yard line. A five-
q yard penalty helped them 'here when a
Chicago man get offside, and that ga.e
three trials at making the re
maining five yards. It took all throe
attempts, but on the third down the
playetr, being exceptionally fast and
agile., Pearson's ability as a player
has )ne down in the annals of Augus
tana fathletics since 1905, when he was
a pofwer In the team. He has lost
nonei of his old-time form and will un
doubl edly make it interesting for the
opposing guards. Pearson is coaching
the t(3am this year and is introducing
somej Innovations in the line of play.
Only Two .ew Men.

TJ.ie second team of Rock Island
big!' Echool played an interesting game
Sati.rday afternoon at Exposition park
wi;h the second team from St. Am
brcee college of Davenport. The local
ladi won the contest by a score of 21
to i . Tha game was not as one-sided
as khe score would seem to indicate
ami it was only because the high
school boys took advantage or their
opportunities better than the visitors
thrj. they won the game. The Daven
porf. boys were really the stronger rn
the defease and it was only occasion
ally that the high school boys managed
to (make considerable gains.
Tllost of the ground gaining was the
reslilt ofc trick plays and onside kicks.
On, the other hand the St. Ambrose
.eedonds displayed considerable ability
in advancing the ball and time and
agj in they tore off long runs. The
defensive ability of the high school
seeond team's captain, Ernest Mac
M iiius, was all that prevented the vis
iters from securing enough points to
wiji the game. Six different times
Ma cManus, who was playing quarter
back, stopped men who hut for him
wa uld have scored a touchdown.
H s ghes, playing center for the locals,
was another strong man on the defen
sive and on the offensive Bensen,
Woden and MacManus starred.
Story of tbe Game.
The high school boys made their
firjjt touchdown in a very few miftut33
of! play during which time they run all
ovjer the visitors and gained ground ac
will. Benson scored the touchdown
aril Hughes kicked goal. All the ra
rtliinder of the scoring was done in the
scbond half. After being scored on in
sij;h short order the visitors braced
add had the high school boys on the
dj fenslve all through the first half, but
tli?y were unable to cross the line.
In the second half an onside kick
wfis recovered by Budilier and he ran
hi If the length of the field and ended
ut a few yards from the goal line.
VTilcher was pushed over for a touc'a
dl)WD and Hughes kicked goal. A few
rJinutes later the score was made ;.5
to. 0 when MacManus kicked a pretty
drop kick over the bar from the 23
yurd line. The St. Ambrose touch
down and the final Rock Island touch-
diown came In the last few minutes
o play. Hailey, fullback for the vlsit
orj;, who starred throughout the con
test, received a forward pass and liter
ally ran away "from everybody In going
oj.'er the line for a touchdown. The
fchgh school evened up a few minutes
lj'.ter when St. Ambrose attempted th-?
same play. This time Hugnes inter
cepted the pass and ran over the go-il
line for the final touchdown. He
kfeked goal also and the final score
off 21 to 5 was reached.

Twenty-six killed, C9 seriously In
jured and scores of others painfully
hurt has been the cost of football to
the United States thus far this year,
according to the Chicago Tribunes
The latest, victim was reported Sat
urday. He was Verne Merrill, a mem
ber of the Janesville, Wis., high school
football team. He died as a result of
blood poisoning from a scratch re
ceived while playing three weeks ago.
The list of the dead seems to be a
decisive answer to the assertion of the
exponents of the game that the devel
opment of the open game would lead
to a lessening of the perils of the grid
Iron. The number of deaths Is the
highest it has been In years and is al
most double that of either of the two
seasons recently passed. In 1907 there
were only 14 deaths and In 1908 only
Majority Well Trained.
The facts also seem to disprove the
c laim of the game's "supporters that it
is the games of the untrained boys ,
and the athletic clubs tha cause th3 i
fatalities. Of this year's dead the ma
jority were college players, suppos-.-d
to have been hardened and made f.t
for the contests on the gridiron by ex
pert coaches and long preparation.

Jerry Harrington, the receiving end
of the famous Rhines and Harrington
battery that made avenport known
the country over in the years of 18SS
and 18S9, was here Saturday visiting
eld friends and acquaintances. t
present Harrington is assistanVXTmaf
of Police at Keokuk, Iowa.
Harrington declared that the team
Davenport had in 18S9, the last ye-ir
of the original Three-Eye league,
could defeat the champion Pittsburg
team of last season. The old catcher
delighted in recounting the abilities of
the different players, who made up the
famous team of '89", when Davennoi't
won the pennant by such a margin
that all the other teams were hope
lessly out of the race. Harrington
played with Davenport In 1888 and
1889. At that time the members of the
old Three-Eye league, which was the
precursor of the present circuit, in
cluded Burlington, Davenport, Quincy,
Peoria, Bloomington, Danville, Evans
ville and Terre Haute.
Sold to Cincinnati.
Of the members of the team of 1SS:),
Harrington and Rhines, the battery,
were sold to Cincinnati; Allen, the
shortstop, to Philadelphia; Routcliffe,
the right fielder, to Pittsburg; Fuzz'.e-
bach, the third baseman, to Balti
more; Nichols, the center fielder, to
Pittsburg, and Whitaker, the pitcher,
But the greatest of them all, and
the best pitcher that ever twirled a
ball, was Billy Rhines, according to
Harrington. "He had the art and the
head," says the old , player. "Hutch
inson, Nichols and Rusie were great 5n
their time and Mullin and Adams .'n
this day, but none of them had It on
Bill Rhines. He had the physique,
the sagacity and intelligence. Some
of the other great pitchsrs equalled
him in some respects and surpassed
him in others, but none of them had
all the qualities Billy had."
Easy Job IVovtr.
Harrington also paid his respects to
the present day catchers. In his time
the backstops wore only a thin glove,
something like the ordinary glove used
for street wear. With the aid of the
big mlts now In vogue he declared
that the catcher ought to be able o
sit in a chair and catch any pitch 3r
in the business. Harrington now tips
the scales at 31C pounds.
Rhines is now vice president of a
bank in his home town of Ridgeway,
Pa. Ho remained, with Cincinnati
from 1889 to 1892 when his collar bono
was broken and he was forced to re
tire to the minor leagues. Harrington
caught for Cincinnati for still another
year after Rhines left.

Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 22. Splen
did kicking by Captain Coy brought
the eastern intercollegiate football
championship back to Yale. In an old
fashioned game, wherein Harvard was
defeated S to 0. Driving the Crimson
team steadily back by his long punts.
Coy dropped two goals from the field,
and Yale's aggressive forwards con
tributed two points more by blocking
a Harvard punt, which resulted In a
safety for the blue.
The game was especially disappoint
ing from the Harvard standpoint, for
the Crimson eleven 6howed more than
twice . the power of the Blue In
straight rushing. Those who antici
pated a demonstration of the latest
strategic developments were disap
pointed. Nearly 40,000 people watched
the game and urged the players by
constant cheering and singing.
Wolverines neat Gophers.
Minneapolis, Nov. 22. Michigan de
feated Minnesota 15 to C in the fiercest
game seen in the west In 1909. In the
second half the Wolverines outplayed
the Gophers at every stage, turning a
C to C tie Into a victory'.
During the first half both carrl?a
the ball on consistent plunging an-I
long gains half the length of the ficid
for touchdowns. In the second half
Minnesota could do nothing wiMi
Michigan's powerful line and the Wol
verine ends rarely were unable to stop
the Gopher attack. Michigan tore big
holes In the Minnesota line and kept
the ball in Gopher territory most of

Chicago, Nov. 22. Wisconsin and
Chicago battled to a sensational C to C

there was no advantage on either sidi
Both teams scored In the first half,
but the second half was a futile battle
to push the ball across either goil
line. The result leaves the posses- i
sion of second place among western
teams undecided.. This Is the second
C to 6 tie Chicago has played within
the last eight days.
Both teams played raggedly tit
times, and neither showed great abil
ity. Occasionally a forward pass, on

the westerners started down the field,

FOR SGEE52S ULCERS
There is but one way to cure an old sore or chronic ulcer, and that la
to remove the cause that produces and keeps it open. No matter where
located, any spre that remains until it becomes chronic does so because of
impure blood; the circulation constantly discharges its polluted matter into
the place and it is impossible for nature to heal the sore. S. S. S. heals
sores and ulcers by purifying the blood. It removes every trace of taint
or impurity from the circulation, and thus completely does away with the
cause. No local application reaches below the infected flesh at the spot,
and for this reason can have no curative effect on a sore or ulcor; while
such treatment is being used alone, the germs and impurities are constantly
increasing in the blood and the sore is bound to grow worse. When S.S.S
has cleansed the blood and enriched and purified the circulation the
place begins to take on a more healthv appearance, the different symptoms
show improvement, the flesh around the ulcer gets firm, new skin and
tissues are formad, and aided by pure, rich blood, nature provides a perfect
and lasting cure. Under the tonic and blood-purifyir.g effects of S.S.S.. the
system is built up, and those whose health has been impaired by the drain
and worry of an old sore will be greatly benefited by its use. Book on
Sores and Ulcers and any medical advice free to all who write.
