THE TOPEKA DAILY BTATE JOURITAIr FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 7 1907.
It is not the cook, but the
woman behind the cook who
rules the world. Housekeeping
is full of sunshine for the
woman who knows
Biscuit and Triscuit. The
Biscuit is the world's stand
ard breakfast cereal, delicious
with milk or cream or fruits.
TRISCUIT is the shredded
wheat wafer, used as a Toast
with butter, cheese or bever
ages. All the nutriment, in the
whole wheat. x
If you like Shredded Wheat Biscuit for break
fast you will like TRISCUIT for luncheon or for
any meal as a substitute for white flour bread.
An ideal food for flat-dwellers, light house
keepers, campers, for picnics, for excursions on
land or on sea. The best of all wafers.
WESTERN" ASSOCIATION' GOSSIP.
'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
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
' "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-
Dries in 10 Minufes

Behind the Cook
ing about, was a lick which the short
stop should have- handled cleanly, but
which he "failed to see, and which
he and his fellow players refused to
go after or make a motion to go after
until Dickie had made the circuit.
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.

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

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

One of the Noted Saloons Hereafter, to
Sell Only Soft Brinks.
Leavenworth, June 7. The spectacle
of soft drinks only being sold over a bar
that has probably had more schooners
pass over it than even the bar in New
York harbor, can not be witnessed In
the Star of the West, John Werly's

there will be sold. He will keep open
on Sundays also from now on and hopes
to make a test of the soft drink dis

for beer, whisky or wines, but to all of
