I had a kink in my elbow, but I never spoke of the same: 1 never mentioned my charley-liorse nor limped when the leg went lame; I never whispered it to myself so the boss eould not have heard. Hut I see where he's signed up three new guys, and all of them play third. I hit .l-and that's enough I dug 'eti from the dirt; And I got em by inches across at first in spite of the wav it hurt; The glass was there and the charley-horsc but nobody knew a word Hut I see where they landed three new guys and all of them play third. I'd throw and laugh when it hurt 1 .sell sore as a boil is sore; I had a knot in my thigh and calf but it never showed in the score; When they hit one down I'd grit my teeth and shoot it sailing across .

"Spec'' Hurlburt, who has made an p.. viable record as an umpire, since he turned his attention to that end of the game is in Topeka. "Spec" looks bet ter than for years. He is in better physical condition, judging from ap pearances, than even in his ball play ing days. He is looking for a job at indicator handling this season and Frexy O'Neill could do a lot worse than to land him. Tt is up to Hutchinson to show whether or not the bugs there want haseball. Mr. Smalley is making them a grand baseball proposition, has a for mer big leaguer to manage the team and intends to spend every cent made this summer building up a strong club. Jn return he wants Hutchin: or. to build a ball park, no subscriptions or donations, guarantees r provisions against losses asked. It seems to an outsider like this is Hutchinson's chance.

Sat..9r1 v $11 team this season. Hal made a great record pitching for Ira Bidwell's inde pendent team last year. He joined Dale Gears Western Leaguers the hitter part of last season. In Rusten haven ear has picked up a promising lert hander who has everything that belongs to a winning pitcher. George Cochran, who also played with Bid veirs Cheyenne Indians last year, will be on the same team with Rusten haven. Cochran is a third baseman. There is scarcely a club that is not going out for training this year. Two years ago McGill, of Denver, was the onlv Western League magnate who tried this stunt. All of which goes to show how the pace is growing more rapid each year in the Western loop. The annual meeting of the stock holders of the Topeka Baseball Asso ciation will be held next Tuesday night in the Commercial club rooms. At this meeting, the stockholders will be con fronted with the proposition to assist the board of directors in raising money for the benefit of the team or losing team and franchise. There as some debts to pay which have been hanging over the club since the stock company -was organized and the board of directors need some money to pay the expenses that will be incurred before the Western League schedule begins. Bonds aggregating $10,000 which run for ten years and draw 7 per cent, were issued more than a year ago. About $5,000 or less of this amount have been sold. The members of the board of directors want to sell the re mainder of the issue. A few - men have carried the responsibility of the team on their shoulders almost contin uously and now they insist that the stockholders come to their assistance by bearing a part of the load. The officers have what thev consid er the best team that has ever repre sented the team in the Western League. They believe that it w ill finish well up in the race. At least they have done all that was possible under the circumstances. Now they are asking ior assistance and must have it. The team and franchise is worth all that it is said to be and other towns m this section of the country would be glad to get it. The board of directors has received several good 'offers for it and will be required to sell the entire RESTORES PLEASING PLUMPNESS Samose Sold Under Stansfield'a "Xo Cure Xo Pay" Plan. There are a good many people in Topeka who ardently wish they could find some way of getting fat and plump. While not ill, yet they are so thin and scrawny that their friends think they cannot be well. In nine cases out of ten this condition can be rer.dily overcome by using the com bination of flesh-forming foods known as Samose. This little tablet taken three times a day with the food does wonders in building up good health and restoring the pleasing plumpness that is so desirable. George W. Stansfield. druggist, 632 Kansas avenue, Topeka, has the. agency for this preparation and sells it with the promise that if it does not do all that is claimed for it in mak ing people gain in weight and in hep.lth, the money will be refunded. You certainly can afrord to try a BOc box on this plan, as Samose will cost you nothing unless it gives satis faction. Sent postpaid on receipt of price, 50 c.

He will tell the fans about the new men he has secured for the 1913 season and explain other condi tions to them. He will endeavor to clear up all hazy rumors that have been afloat recently and cause the fans to have full confidence in the board of directors. The officers of the association at present are "Arch" Cat lin president: H. A. Auerbach. vice president; F. P. Metzgcr, secretary and treasurer. Others who complete the board of directors are Hm Bear, Guil ford Dudley and C. B. Merriam. Kansas City Star: "Just keep your eye on Joe Crisp this year," said a Western League ball player yesterday afternoon. The catcher, who played with the Blues here several years ago. already has started training in the Battery B gymnasium, and will be in condition to play good ball if his weak knee does not give him another set back Crisp injured his knee playing football with the Medics here six years ago. and has not been able to show his real form since. Two years ago Crisp made a good record with Joe McGinnlty's Newark ' International League team, and later was sold to the St. Louis Browns of the American League. St. Louis did not keep Joe long, as his knee prevented him from getting in the game. He was sold to Topeka and has been in the Western League for two seasons. Crisp says he would like to. get back in the In ternational League. Topeka may trade him to a club Jn Barrow's circuit be fore the season opens in April. Kansas University College Wins. Salina. Kan..

WICHITA GETS "GOLDIE" ItAPPS. Contracts Pouring in Upon Secretary McMuUan. Wichita, Kan., Feb. 21. Signed con tracts are coming thick and fast these days, according to Secretary McMul lan. He also observes that Manager Hughes is optimistic over his prospec tive team for this season. Things are going from good to better. Goldie Rapps has signed a Jobber contract. After signing, he modestly stated that he lives in Cincinanti and belonged to the Philadelphia Nationals last sea son. Rapps calls himself an infielder; he has had experience in the outfield, however, and wants more of it. The latest addition to the Jobber aggregation is Frank A. Butchart. He has been playing semi-professional ball in Kansas City and finished last season in the Nebraska State league. Frank is a brother of J. H. Butchart Capitol Building and Loan Association Will Loan on Real Estate Repayable Monthly Call for information. 534 Kansas Ave. of Wichita, a genuine Jobber fan. Manager Hughes is preparing for any eventuality regarding accidents, which were numerous last season, ill ness, holdouts, and the like, by secur ing good players to draw from. The Wichita manager recommends the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium to all ball players who want to keep in condition. Hughes is a member of the local Y. M. C. A. and takes the essential daily exercise with some of his players who live here, and with Beals Becker. Wal ter Rehg joins them occasionally, but Walter says dancing is even better than the Y. M. c. A. Walter is popu lar with the Wichita girls, and being a good dancer, he is a favorite on the invitation lists. Vern Clemons writes that he is pleased with his sale to Louisville, but regrets his having to leave Wichita friends. Clem's cousin, who pitched for Louisville last season, will intro duce him to the Colonel fans and it's a safe wager that their southern hos pitality will not let him get lonesome. Wichita fans can rest assured that the Jobbers will have one of the strong est catching departments In the West ern League this season notwithstanding the sale of Clemons. The latest addi tion to i.he Jobbers Is Harry Huston, who has been purchased from the Zanesville club in the Central League. The management has had Huston in view for the last two years, he having expressed his desire to come here when he was with the Lowell Mass., club in 1911. Huston is not an especially heavy hitter, having an average of .243 for last year, but has had lots of tricks of the game.

TTGHT KM)S IX DRAW. Jack (Twin) Sullivan and Jeff Clarke Io Fast Ten Rounds. Joplin, Mo., Feb. 21. Jack (Twin Sullivan of Buffalo, and Jeff Clarke of Joplin fought ten rounds to a draw here. The bout was fast from the start. In the opening rounds Sullivan resorted mostly to in-fighting, after the fourth carrying out a different style of fighting, but he was unable to land a telling blow. Clarke carried the fight in earl yevery round. He ducked cleverly several times when Sullivan used his left with lots of steam and planted many jabs on the Twin's face. The closing round saw both men fighting fiercely. Earl Puryer of Denver and Jimmy Pappss of Joplin went ten rounds to a draw. L I
