The Western league, wl.ose season Opens April 18. and closes Oct. 5. has voted to retain the 168 game schedule, which makes three minor leagues now playing longer srhedules than the major leagues, namely the Pacific Coast league, American association and the Western league. Among the changes this year in vari ous circuits, there is the probable shift j of the Kali River. Mass.. franchise to' Portland, Me., in the New England league. The return of ' Waterbury, Conrr., to the old Connecticut league, which will be called the Kastern asso ciation this year, and the addition of New London and Pittsfield, with the loss of ITew Britain, makes an eight club circuit. Last year there were but six teams. KcdiK'tion of Clubs. The Central league is considerably changed, being reduced from a twelve rlub circuit to one of six cities Fort Wayne.

At times I I endure the suffering much longer, so naturally consulted our family physi cian wl o -.old me at once that I had a severe case of kidney trouble. I con sulted another physician at Denver, Col., who told me that I hau kidney trouble and needed careful treatment and a long rest. After doctoring with the physician for several months and receiving no benefit, I decided to try Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, which had been recommended by my husband's partner. To be honest, I really did not have any faith in Swamp-Root but thought I would experiment on at least one bottle. After taking one fifty-cent bottle 1 felt so much better that I bought a dollar bottle and continued its use for a few months, after which I felt so well and free from my former suffer ing that I pronounced myself cured. I feel safe in saying tr : your Swamp-Root prevented my having Bright's Disease and therefore, saved my life. To piove my gratitude I will allow vou to publish this testimonial any time you wish. I also tell my friends what Swamp-Root done for me and know of several cases where cures have been accomplished. 1 believe al most every one living in the South should use Swamp-Root at least one or two months in the Spring as it rids the system of all impurities.

March ll The Washburn college five closed its basket ball season by defeating St. Marys this evening. 'fi to o. i he visitors started the game by running up eleven points while the home team was scoring a free throw. The half ended just as Quig ley's men were getting started, with Washburn ahead 17-7. The second half was more even, the Irish cutting the Congregatlonalist's lead down by two points. They fought hard and had good luck with the baskets, while r. Ream and Washburn were unable to handle the glass backstops of the St. Marys court. This was the only intercollegiate game Washburn played. Class games have been going on all winter, with fourteen teams fighting for the cham pionship of the school. From the.--e squads Qnigley picked a team to play Driver's five. As in football, Qnigley jerks his men at the slightest misplay, and before the gamp with Washburn was ended he had used thirteen men. As it was the only game of the sea son, the big gymnasium was packed with the students and townspeopla, while the -fine St. Marys band played during intermissions. In teamwork the visitors showed their experience and passed the ball all around the home team. The Irish fought hard and gained from their ac quaintance with their big court: but they had not played together and failed to show the teamwork of the Topeka five. D. Ream and Washburn were the stars of Driver's squad, while Kelley and M. Sweeney were the most effec tive for St. Marys. Summary: Washburn. Plavers G. F. T. F. T. Ream (captain).

Charlie White, the Chicago featherweight, out pointed Pal Moore, of Philadelphia, by a big margin in a 10-round fight here last night. Six times White floored his oppon ent with his right and left swings to the jaw. Moore took the count of nine four times and the bell saved him on the other occasions. Four knock downs came during the third round, despite the fact that White had broken a bone in his right hand during the sec ond round. The other knockdowns occurred in the fifth , and eighth rounds. Tbe . result " was never in doubt after the third round, Moore re maining on his feet only by sheer pluck. Moore made his best showing in the first round, when he rushed White across the ring and knocked him over the ropes with right and left swings. Moore also fell out of the ring. MANDOT KNOCKED OUT Ieaeh Cross Outclasses Joe In New Orleans Boat MATCH FRIDAY NIGHT. Heavyweight Will Meet in Madison Square Match. New York, March 11. Bombardier Wells, the English heavyweight, is studying the ring record of "Gunboat" Smith of California. They are matched to box ten rounds Friday night in Madison Square garden, and as Wells has seen the Californian in action, h is asking many questions about him. Last year Smith met "Porky" Flynn of Boston in a ten-round bout at a local club, resulting in various ver dicts. The record of this affair proved of great interest to Wells, for in England two years ago he got a decision over Flynn in a twenty-round battle. New Orleans, March 11. Leach Cross knocked out Joe Mandot in the tenth round of their scheduled 10 round fight here last night. The New Torker practically won in the ninth. In this round Cross landed a right swing to the jaw that sent Mandot down and four times after that he floored the French fighter. Mandot could hardly keep his feet as he came from his corner at the be ginning of the tenth. Cross went after him hammer and tongs and beat him down with a rain of rights and lefts. As Mandot went to the floor his manager threw a towel into the ring. Mandot seemed to be outclassed after the third round when Cross be gan clever infighting. At long range work the New Orleans man showed to better advantage, but Cross kept close in and at the infighting was superior. When coming out of a clinch in the ninth Cross hooked his right to the Jaw and then followed with a swing to the same place, Mandot went down and the fight practically was over. Mandot took a count of nine and came up unsteadily. Cross landed at will after that. Mandot was a 5 to 3 favorite. A telegram from Rivers challenging the winner was received. r Any Defects Appearing in Goods Labeled -Will Be Made Good J A TEN CENT BOX OF "CASCARETS" Insures yon for months against a S"-k Headache, Blllananesa, Constipation or a Bad Stomach.

Stephen O'Neill, the Cleveland American League team's first catcher in 1912, and the last of this season's holdouts, signed his contract. New York, March 11. Packey Mc Farland declared last night that he would not meet Willie Richie for the lightweight title held by Richie, if he had to make 133 pounds six hours be fore the fight. 'As I have said repeatedly," McFar land declared, "135 pounds at 5 o'clock in the afternoon is easy for me and it is a legitimate llgntweight limit, in view of ring precedent. Joe Gans won the title from Frank Erne at 136 pounds, scaling at 6 o'clock, yet nobody called Gans a welterweight. If Richie is a real lightweight champion, he should not split hairs with me over a weight he himself actually prefers." K. V. LOSES FIRST GAME. Nebraska Takes Initial Contest in Basketball Series.
