Pendry, 3b 4.2 1 1 Scorglns, cf. 5 0 3 0 0 Goes, lb 4 0 12 1 0 The first symptom of Contagious Blood Poison is usually a little sore or nicer which, does not always excite suspicion because of its insignificance ; but as the poison becomes more firmly rooted in the blood, the mouth and throat ulcerate, copper-colored spots appear, a rash breaks out on the body, the hair begins to come out, glands in the neck and groins swell, and often ulcerating sores form on the limbs, hands or face. But this is not all : if the poison is allowed to remain it works down and attacks the bones, causing ecrosis or decay, and makes a complete physical wreck of the sufferer. It ill not do to tamper with a disease so powerful as Contagious Blood Poison, lor every day the virus remains in the blood the trouble is progressing toward a more dangerous stage, and may in the end get beyond the reach of any treatment. There is but one certain, reliable cure for Contagious Blood Poison, and that is S. S. S., the greatest of all blood purifiers. This remedy attacks the disease in the right way by going down into the blood and forcing out every particle of the poison. It makes the blood pure and rich, etrengthens the different parts of the body, tones up the system and cures thi3 humiliating and destructive disorder permanently. The improvement commences as soon as the patient gets under the influence of S. S. S. and continues until every vestige of the poison is driven from the blood, and the sufferer completely restored to health. S. S. S. is not an experiment, it is a euccess and has. cured thousands of cases of Contagious Blood Poison In every stage, and being entirely free from minerals, is a safe as well as certain treatment. If you are suffering with this debasing disease get the poison put of your blood with S. S. S before it does further damage.

The victory or this mare was clean, ana wnne ner performaiice is a second lower than that I of Ardell In the record time for the stake it is a good one considering the track which was fully a second slow. , The grand circuit never had a more auspicious opening in Detroit and nearly 10,000 participated.

Plans Completed for a $60,000 Three Story Saloon at Los Angeles. Los Angeles. Cal., July 24. Plans have been completed for the new thirst palace that Champion Jeffries will open shortly, and from the description given by the big fellow himself, it is going to be a classy one. Jim and his partner expect to put $60,000 into fit ting it up. The place will be 125 feet in depth, and everything will be finish ed in mahogany except the floor, which will be of tile. Eight booths finished in mahogany and leather with private phones will be on the main floor, while on the second floor will be placed twenty-two pool and billiard tables, with a phone at each table. On the second and top floors will be clubrooms and gentlemen's sleeping apartments. There will be altogether thirty rooms finished in birdseye maplb. with baths and all the modern conveniences of a gentlemen's club. The place is to be called The Jeffries, and it took some tall arguing to get the bis fellow to use his name. Everyone here believes that Jeffries will be forced to .appear in the ring again. That the proprietor of a gilded paloon like to the one outlined above should engage in the sport of prize fighting Is surely, an anomaly. Kansas City Signs Brandon. .Kansas -City, July 24.

Graham, the Washington twirler, has made ten hits with a total of eighteen. In a stretch of eleven games Connie Mack's lads made one or more doubles. Stoval and Oldring are the only players who have made five hits in a game. New York catchers have had seventeen passed balls, the same number as Cleve land. One reason Boston has not won many games is the fact they have stolen but fifty-two bases. Ollie Pickering, who was expected to lead the leasue In stolen bases (one of his strong points), has but six. Jones, the St. Louis first sacker, has made but one hit longer than a double, he secured a triple July 4 at Detroit.

GILES PROPRIETORS Topeka Spice Mills WESTERN ASSOCIATION GOSSIP Springfield, Mo., July 24. After a dis graceful brawl with some of his players last Monday night Captain Hurlburt of the Topeka team was arrested by two officers and arraigned in police court where he was yesterday morning fined $5 and costs which brought the amount up to about $15. Monday night after the game Officers Hooper and Noe were passing by the Ullman hotel where the Topeka team was quartered and noticed that the men were engaged in a fierce quarrel among themselves but passed on thinking little that they would come to blows. Hardly had they passed by when a stream of profane abuse Efell from the lips of Captain Hurl burt which was directed at Red Davis. The stormy outburst ended in the chal lenge, "Just come up stairs and I will whip the devil out of you." This sen tence sounds mild , when contrasted to some of his utterances. Immediately Captain Hurlburt rushed for the stair way and the other members of the team tried to head him off and reduce his temperature but he pushed his way through the crowd saying, "I've got a room up there and I am going up there to whio somebody." Davis followed and when the head of the stairs was reach ed Davis received a blow in the face. The two officers were on the scene immed iately and attempted to arrest the bellig erent captain. Hurlburt resisted arrest and it was necessary to subdue him at the point of arms. The patrol wagon was called into action and Hurlburt was taken to the police station, followed by the band of Topeka players who were wondering what would become of their frenzied leader. Secretary Fred Robbins of the Topeka team appeared and went on Hurlburt's bond and the Topeka cap tain was released until. Tuesday morning when he appeared at ponce station and was fined $5 and costs. The Topeka management made efforts to suppress the story. Connie Walsh who was considered one of the promising young pitchers in the association last season has just recover ed from a severe bruising up which he received as a result of a railroad smash up in Idaho. He is now with the Seattl club in the Northwestern league and last Sunday pitched his first game sine! being hurt and let the Tacoma team down . with three measly singles and then lost because his team was not able to hit. Frank Quigley. formerly with the Topeka team, is playing second base for the Seattle team. Bert Dunn, the little twirler who came up from the Cotton States league two Reasons ago to help out the White Sox in the latter end of the season is now pitching for "Vancouver In the North western league. He is the most reliable pitcher on the staff of the Canadians and is winning nearly all of his games. Here is what some of the Webb City players have to say of the trouble last Saturday: "I have been accused of aid ing in the mobbing of Umpire Guthrie. I most emphatically deny that I took any hand in his beating up. On the contrary I received a spiked leg while standing over him protecting him from the mob. I was on the bench when the fight start ed. . I realized what the fight meant to baseball interests and did my best to protect Guthrie." Statement of Law rence Milton. "I asked Guthrie if the fine would stick, and he said it would. . If I am to be treated that way I might as well quit ball playing and dig sewers for a living, as my salary would be all taken up.

President Baker of Joplin has post ed an order in the grand stands at that place prohibiting the use of pop bottles in any way or the hurling of vile, epithets at any of the players on either the home team or the visiting team. If carried out this is a com-' mendable step. Price, who pitched for Topeka yes terday and played the outfield the day before, is a youngster and pitched for Springfield awhile this spring. He is a southpaw and did fair work with the Midgets. His greatest shortcoming is in his lack of experience. He formerly played with Cedar Rapids in the Three-Eye league. If Ragan can play third with any where near as much certainty as he can short the shift which has been made in the team during the past few da ought to prove a good one. Run kel is almost as sure on a ground ball as Ragan and ought to make fewer errors. Ragan has made fewer errors this season than ever before but he is unfortunate in the fact that nearly every error he makes is a costly one. Manager Cantillon of the Washing ton team haa summoned Heine Gehrlng, formerly of Wichita, to work with the Nationals. Gehring made his first appearance with the Washington team Monday against Cleveland but was touched up for eleven hits and six runs. The following -is a portion of the statement which was issued to the Joplin and Webb City papers by Presi dent D, M. Shlvely after he had spent all day Sunday in Investigating the trouble at Webb City last Saturday: "Umpire baiting in the Western as sociation must cease. This has been the most strenuous season for the in dicator men that we have had. Even last year, when the clubs engairedin the closest race ever witnessed in any league, there was not near the amount of Irouble during the entire season that we have had already this year. I qo not attribute It to any inferiority of the men, but on the contrarv. believe that my this year's staff is the best I have had since the formation of the league. I perhaps nave peen 10 Diame somewhat, as I have been too lax with my duty in enforcing discipline. "However. I thought I waa doing right and getting along handsomely when I placed nominal nnes ana snori suspensions on belligerent players. My views were cnangea auer Satur day's trouble at Webb City, and I have started on a new lead, which will be followed closely from this time for ward. 'Tomorrow upon my return to Kan sas City I will send out official notioe to all club owners of my action in the Webb City trouble ana snau accom pany it with stringent warning to fu ture umpire baiters. 'This is only a starrer to wnat is comin- in the future, and there will be other Western association players hunting employment in other lines If they do not cease the practice of as saulting umpires. I am sure the man agers have awakened to the necessity of more stringent action and will sup port me in this connection. "Next fall I propose to suggest a rule to the National association con vention that umpire baiters be treated as contract Jumpers, which would mean disqualification forever. I have no doubt but what such legislation can be easily enacted, for I am not the only president who has had his troubles Among others I can mention the Three-Eye, Iowa State and Central leagues."
