'WHERE THEY PLAY TOMORROW. Topeka at Joplin. Wichita at Oklahoma City. Springfield at Leavenworth. Webb City at Hutchinson. According to the Wichita papers the money that was posted by the Oklahoma City fans to the effect that Oklahoma City would take four out of the seven games played with Wich ita was pulled in as soon as it was , covered by the Wichita fans. The two teams will meet Saturday for the first time and something interesting ought to be doing when the two teams get together. A game" with McFar land of Oklahoma City and Young of Wichita as opposing pitchers would be worth seeing. s Springfield Leader: ' The Wichita Jobbers are not far from being' an.ex- . Midget aggregation, as several of Manager Holland's men were at one time on the Springfield pay roll. Young and Speer, pitchers, Hetling on third, Bayless in the center garden and McLear in right, were all on the Midget bunch at one time or another. Oyler. a fast young infielder from .Birmingham, Ala., has been signed up by Manager Larry Milton of the Webb City team and joined the team at Leavenworth. This will greatly strengthen the Infield and will make the team play better ball. Painter, the first baseman, has been sent to his home in Webb City. He was badly injured in one of the Webb City games .and went home to rest up. Milton has two other men in sight whom he ex pects to have join him next week and then his team will be playing a higher grade of ball. For a bunch that is as badly crippled as the Webb Feet seem to be, Milton is getting away in fine shape with his bunch. He is willing to bet that they will finish in the first division. Louisville Courier-Journal: When asked yesterday to give his opinion why the Colonels were losing steadily. Manager Cooley said: "The team in its present condition needs strength ening in the outfield and at the firing line, and until these weak spots are taken care of the club will have its trouble to win games. It is my opin ion that with the addition of two hard hitlng outfielders and two first class twirlers, we will be fighting for first place. ' "With the players I have, I am ex erting every effort to give Louisville a winning team. I admit that several of the recent games were lost by dumb end stupid work on the bases and errors of judgment. I have nothing against any of the players, as they are 'all fine fellows, but they are expected to be able to hit the ball. The infield is satisfactory; in fact, Just as good as there Is in the American association." Three errorless games In succession .Js not so bad. And three games from the Oklahoma City team on the Mets home grounds is not bad either. The Topeka White Sox will invade Joplin tomorrow. This will probably be all that is needed to put Army In the second division. Evidently our old friend Dickie Brown is bitting the ball lately. Read this from the Bartlesvllle Enterprise: A traveling man, who -was In McAl- ester Sunday says that the McAlester bunch laid down to the Champs and let them win a double header. The home run by Dick Brown, which the Independence papers have been blow- I6-5-4X- vwers Times More Surface Dries in 10 Minufes It Is nothing like an enamel, bat Is ray this and very black. 6-6- "oats up" rust as water do Mlt For sale by W.

Wonderful ball playing truly! No won der the Champs are In second place. Elmer Strlcklett, the former Wash- bum college pitcher and the inventor of the famous spit ball pitched the last seven innings of the game for Brook lyn against Cincinnati and during the seven Innings he pitched the Reds found him for only four singles. Manager John Ray of Leavenworth has handed in his resignation which will take effect next Sunday. Coach Ernest Qulgley of St. Marys will then assume charge of the team. Oklahoma Post: Topeka also took on an extra pitcher yesterday In the person of Arnold, who has been in the city for a number of days. It is not announced whether he will go in against the Mets in either of- the re maining games of the present series. . ....There was a goodly bunch of money laid last night that the Mets will win the remaining two games of the present series from the Champs. The people who had this kind of coin found little difficulty In getting It cov ered. Daily Oklahoman: The Topeka infield Is a veritable stone wall If it keeps up the present pace. With Jones or Bun ton in the box, Topeka presents a good betting proposition to win from any team in tire association Those who observe the fast all around play ing of young Ragan, the Topeka short stop,"predJct a great future for him in baseball. He is perhaps one of the fastest infielders in the association. OXE PIGEON' REACHES GOAL. Leaves Chicago May 18 and Appears in San Antonio 13. Days Later. Chicago, June 7.

The American citizen has stood for more imposition in the matter of cigars than in anything else he buys with money In fact, he's so used to being "worked", by the cigar manufacturer day after day, that he's pretty near come to believe there's no way of knowing what he is get ting, anyhow. The American Cigar Company stands for full value in cigars. It believes the man with five cents to invest is entitled to get his money's worth as much as the in vestor in any other property. It is against box-stuffing, against substitution, against shoddy, poor cigars and against every kind of cigar imposition on the public, and it is adopting every possible method of exposing them. It believes the only way to build up a great and permanent business is to deal honestly with the people, to give good value and uniform dependable quality all the time. Several million smokers have found it out and are buying their cigars by the "A" (Triangle A) mark on the box instead of taking everything for granted and smoking whatever is handed out That's Your Cue! If you want to get acquainted with "A" (Triangle A) quality and satisfy yourself as to whether our claims can be proved or not, try The New CREMO Every box is now extra-wrapped in glassine paper, sealed at each end with the "Triangle A" in red.

He will keep open on Sundays also from now on and hopes to make a test of the soft drink dis pensary Idea. Yesterday many of tha place's old customers called and asked for beer, whisky or wines, but to all of them John said "Nay. One man got so mad he wanted to fight; he thought John was Joking with him, but John convinced him that he wasn't by letting him look into his Ice box. Albert Haug has also turned his place Into a soft drink dispensary and Frits Schwaneke, who recently was forced to move- Into another building, yesterday opened up as a cigar store. It is said those places that have moved out their front bars will continue to sell soft drinks and tobatco to see, as an experi ment, whether they can make expenses. They will not close their doors on Sun days, as in the past, saying they have as much right to keep them open as do L drug stores and confectionaries. To Have Curfew Ordinance.
