Irr a well played and Interesting game the To peka White Sox, the' Champions of the Western association, dispelled the mystic halo.of unkindies with which Fate has enshrouded the local team for the past' two ''weeks and Topeka rellopgjJv.tOjxiei4hj8Twinner by a close core of 3 to 2. Some games are noted for their slugging and some for their pitchers' battles, but yesterday's con test for .the most part .struck a happy medium between these two extremes. There was enough hitting to make it Interesting but outside of the time Topeka spent at bat in the eighth inn Jng there was .not enough 4o apply the a-ppeuauorwof , a slugging match. Billy White Crosses Plate With First Knn. No small share of the credit of the victory shoiild be placed at the shrine of one John Bunton, who dispensed the Spalding over the plate for. the Oklahoma City aggregation - to swat. Although touched up pretty lively at times he was as steady as a twenty four jewelled Elgin movement ' and generally managed ' to escape' un harmed. Peg Bemis, who bears the reputa tion ' of being the hard luck pitcher of thB visiting aggregation of pellet chasers, worked on the , rubber for Vie tribe of Moorland. - Until -the eighth inning Jie looked iike'aC.wln- aer out by the time nve hits ware se curea on ms spitrers tmngs took a different view -ienJIri-- Bemis 'came out second best.-i;f .m't .

Bill Rapps, Noisy Bill, of late one of the quietest players in the association was hauled in from the outfield to play second and Goes went out in the center garden,- r - v ... . . was safe in a close decision. Erwln smashed his third hit of the day through the Infield to right field and Davis and .Woo ley came across the rubber in a dead heat. Abbott reach ed third. Hurlburt hit and Abbott trotted home. Runkel hit to Pendry who caught Erwln at third and then the little third sacker overthrew War ren Gill a mile and Runkel reached second Spec going to third. Ragan mi into White for an easy out. Great Day for the Ixcal Fana. Oklahoma Cltv came hack in trie ninth with a good deal of determina tion but they could not hit in propor tion with this determination and fail ed to tie the score. However. ' they sent one man across. Pendry walked and scored on Scroggins double to left field. The batting of Bunton and Erwln composed the star performance of the locals . during the afternoon. Each came to bat three time and connected for a double and two singles. Bun ton's double In the third inning was the longest hit of the afternoon. Wooley made a star catch off McFar land in the second lnnine:. Runkel and Olson In the eighth inning engag ed in a fast double play. After Goes had hit safe White bunted to Colonel Lewis Blackstone Runkel. Runkel threw to Olson on first getting White and Runkel darted back to third in time to receive Olson's return throw and by sticking his paw behind him to apply the Spalding to Mr. Goes be fore the latter could connect with Sta tion No. 3.

But Scoggins hit to Hurlburt and White beat the throw to the plate with the first run f the afternoon. With the locals one run to the bad Bunton advanced to the plate in the eighth inning.

Pet 0 f OLD SOSES The deep, underlying cause of every old sore is a bad condition of the blood. This vital fluid has become infected with some germ or poison which prevents the place from healing. This infection may be the result of an in active, sluggish condition of the system leaving the refuse matter in the - body to be absorbed into the circulation instead of throwing it fi through the usual channels of nature. Another cause is the weakening or polluting of this life-stream from hereditary taints, or from the effects of a long spell cf sickness, leaving disease germs in the system. When the blood is in thi3 condition a sore cannot heal because the impurities with which the circula tion is filled are being constantly discharged into the place to irritate and inflame the tissues and further disease the surrounding flesh. The only treatment that can do any good is one that removes the cause, and for this purpose nothing equals S. S. S. It begins at the fountain head of the trouble and drives out all germs, impurities and poisons, and then the place, being supplied with rich, pure blood, heals naturally and permanently. Local ap plications assist in cleansing the place, but a cure can only be affected through a purification of the blood. Book on Sores and Ulcers and any medical advice free.
