THE TOPEKA. DAILY STATE JOURNAITUESD AY EVENING, MAY 28, 19Q7.
fofo JAP MOSE Transparent TOILET Soap,, - - i fc,-. - - --"mir '-"liiw fli ! mil i Ml i ran "WHERE THEY PLAT TOMORROW: Topeka at Springfield. Joplin at Leavenworth. Oklahoma City at Hutchinson. Wichita at Webb City. The Champs will come home Friday and open up with AVebb City. They will remain here but four days after which they leave for a long trip to Oklahoma City and Joplin. Friday will be the only ladies' day for some time. Allison never could pitch winning ball for Leavenworth but he got away good with the Champs Sunday and defeated La.wrence Milton, "The Pride of Webb City," in a pitchers' battle. Umpire Java Van Schure of Doc Shively's staff of indicator men is lay ing off for a few days on account cf the illness of a sister. Oklahoma Post: If present indica tions count for anything the home com ing of the Mets will be an enthusiastic affair. They have been making a win ning campaign and are playing in al most perfect form. Even if they should be so unfortunate as to lose some of the games to Hutchinson just before get ting home they will be well received for the good work they have been do ing. The local fans are getting pretty hungry for a ball gaine and there will be a splendid attendance at the game next Thursday afternoon. Captain Spec Hurlburt in an interview published in a Joplin paper says that the Topeka team will get to playing bet ter ball when they get home again and that the poor playing of the team is due to the long rides and bad water and oth er poor accommodations. 'Evidently T'mpire Ofuthrle is not very popular with the Springfield fans as is evidenced by the following clip pings from the Springfield papers. Here is the opinion of the Springfield Republican as to his ability: The Midgets played a fast and snappy game yesterday, and while they may not have - wen from the leaders, yet the work of Outhrie was so unfair and vrr incompetent as to make it useless for them to try to win out. "Doc" The Handy Doctorin Your Vest Pocket HTS a thin, round-cornered little Enamel Box When carried in your vest pocket it means Health-Insurance. It contains Si Candy Tablets of pleasant taste, almost as pleasant as Chocolate. . Each tablet is a working dose of Cas carets, which acts like Exercise on the Bowels and Liver. It will not purge, sicken, nor upset tha Stomach. Because it is not a "Bile-driver," like Salts, Sodium, Calomel, Jalap, Senna, nor Aperient Waters. Neither is it like Castor Oil, Glycerine, or other Oily Laxatives that simply lubricate Ihe Intestines for transit of the food stopped up in them at that particular time. The chief cause of Constipation and Indigestion is a weakness of the Muscles that contract the Intestines and Bowels. Cascarets are practically to the Bowel Muscles what a Massage and Cold Bath are to the Athletic Muscles. They stimulate the Bowel Muscles to Contract, expand, and squeeze the Diges tive Juices out of food eaten. They don't help the Bowels and Liver in such a way as to make them lean upon similar assistance for the future. This is why, with Cascarets, the dose may be lessened each succeeding time instead of increased, as it must be with all other Cathartics and Laxatives. Cascarets act like exercise. If carried in your vest pocket, (or carried hi My Lady's Purse,) and eaten just when you suspect you need one, you will never know a sick day from the ordinary Ills of life. Because these Ills begin in the Bowels, and pave the way for all other diseases. "Vest Pocket" box 10 cents.

Shively might as well be given to un derstand, right now and here, that the fans of Springfield are not going to stand for such deals as were handed them yesterday by a wholly incompe tent, incapable and intellectually In capacitated indicator handler as this diamond lightweight, Guthrie, has proved himself to be. This, however, is very mild when compared with the adverse criticism of the Springfield Leader: As for Guth rie, who purported to do the umpiring stunt, the least said the better. Many of the readers of the Leader are ladies and that is sufficient cause for refrain ing from giving expression adequately to his performance. Then the United States government has seen fit to pro hibit the transmittal, through the mails, if certain language. Without this proscribed languageit would be absolutely impossible . to express, in English the absolute rottenness of his work. He had about as much idea of baseball as a cross-eyed, half-witted hill county chicken has about a dance in the ball rooms of the Waldorf As toria. Some of his decisions were about as rank as a city, boy after a half hour's wrestle with ona of those pretty kittens, famous for' its far-s reaching perfume.v In some manner We has acquired a sort of "Chimmy do tough" walk that .would' set ail the. hearts aflutter in a dance along the levee. Looking tough was his stock in trade evidently for no one could ac cuse him of being an -umpire. Any remark, tending to show Guthrie knew anything about a ball game, would be good and sufficient grounds for a libel suit. On two or three occasions it looked like the big crowd in the grand stand would go out onto the field and hold a short interview with the al leged umps but they contented them selves with hurling cushions at him and making rather disparaging re marks about his ability to operate. The White Sox open up with Spring field this afternoon. Topeka always had better luck with the Midgets on the grounds of the latter than upon the home grounds. Two out of three from the Midgets would not be so bad. As was reported exclusively In the State Journal last Saturday night, Dick Cooley has come to the "relief of the Topeka White Sox and has released to the local club a pitcher from the Louisville ter.m. As was expected it is Jack Bunton, who will join the To peka team. Bunton is -well known in this circuit as he pitched for Sedalia the first year Topeka had a team in this league. He was a good pitcher then and is still a good one. although Cooley thinks he needs a little more seasoning in the smaller leagues. He will fit into the present twirling staff of the locals in fine shape. Old Bill Kemmcr. who was with St. Joe in the league a year ago, is now playing with the Mobile team in the Cotton States league and is getting rich. In a recent game played in Mo bile last week Bill came to bat in the ninth with three runs needed to tie the score and two men down. He se cured a triple with the bases full and the f:ms in the grand stand coughed up $28.80 for the old timer. He won the game in the twelfth with a single. Red Davis seems to be hitting the ball in great shape. A single and a home run was what he secured yester day. If he keeps up this gait very much longer he will be nestling at the top of the batting column when the season is over. j Umpire MacKenzie, who was given his bumps in this association last fall, has met a similar fate this year. He was an umpire in the Cotton States league until last week when he was unconditionally released because of his inefficient work. If the locals only take one game from Springfield they will have more than broken even on the trip, which has been a Ions- one. This is not a bad record, especially when the team has been having the bad luck that the White Cox have. When the team gets home Friday. Mclnnis and Abbott w-ill be ready to take their places on the team and an upward march to the top of the percentage column ought to follow. Old George Felix Blackburn, at one time captain of the White Sox, is tak ing a turn in the box with the Vicks burg team of the Cotton States league. Old George is pitching winning ball, too, and occasionally puts the ball over the fence as of yore. In a recent game he was touched up for thirteen hits but won his game, as his oppo nents were unable to get more than one man over the plate. Winfield 5, Fairmount 4. Winfield, Kan., May 28.

Smoke any "Triangle A" brand and compare it . fairly with any other cigar sold at the same price. We are willing to stake the success of our whole business on public opinion founded on this test. . The experience which has been combined in . producing the American Cigar Company's cigars was acquired from the operation of nearly 100 of the most famous and successful factories nv Cuba and the United States.
