ELES CURED
TO STAY CURED
' Dr. C. S. WOLFE, Specialist.
Why bother with this remedy and
that whirh gives only a temporary
relief at, best?
The fact that conservative busi
ness men and women, bankers, pro
fessional men, Htockmen and farm
ers are coming to me and being
CL'HKI) OF PIL.ES ought to cause
you who still winter from rectal dis
orders to sit up and consider this
statement.
True, you can worry alons with
this salve, that suppository, this
and that "home" remedy, but these
things do not cure to stay cured.
You have the same old trouble
coming back, you have the same in
tense suffering,' possibly worse, and
the same old system or' salves and
suppositories have to be done all
over aain.
Why not com as other level head'
ed people do and be cured once
and for all.
A treatment or two and your
trouble is over completely. You can
do more, life seems more joyous to
you once you realize the dread of
return of PJ LKS is gone.
If yo;i hrsitate Ihh'uuso of pain,
you are attempting to cross a river
before you come to it. My won
derful treatment is so easily ap
plied there is no suffering, no sore
ness afterward.
If you hesitate because of the
probable lost, you are standing in
your own linht. You are failing to
make one of the best investments
you ever had ottered you for such a
small amount. '
If you hesitate because of the
risk, you are permitting a
phantom to bar you from the
good health which is rightfully
yours. YOr XKKI) NOT RISK

Nevertheless, Baseball Strike j
May Be Serious Affair. !
Big' League Stars Liable to !
Start New Circuits.
Most baseball fans do not seem to
be taking the threatened Players fra
ternity strike seriously and many of
the magnates are assuring the general
public that nothing can possibly come
of Fultz's threats. But the flame may
be bigger than the smoke indicates.
The situation may be a great deal
more serious than anyone'on the out
side may realize.
The biggest move Fultz has so far
made is to make application to the
American Federation of Labor to take
his fraternity under its protection, and
:f this happens 't means that any ac
tion the players decide to take will
be given the suonort of every branch
of labor and that the union man, wh:
is always a fan, will boycott clubs and
leagues that do not make peace.
Other Knds In View.
But it is entirely probable that Fultz
wants to get into the ranks of organ
ized labor for an entirely different
purp-L-, than to merely boycott the
magnates. In all probability he is
looking to the time when it may be
possible, or necessary, to organize a
players' league in order to bring the
moguls to their renses, and he knows
that if he does this with the backing
of every labor union in the country ne
will be in a position to figl.t the old
club owners to the last ditch. Ho
knows, and the magnates themselves
know, that if the players' fraternity
becomes affiliated with other labor
organizations and opposition leagues
are set up. there will be little division
of the crowds. Even the peanut ana
the poo sellers know where they will
have to go to sell their wares.
Alreadv there is underground talk
of the players of the big leagues who
are members of the fraternity organ
izing an independent league, and
many of the stars have enough money
to put it on Its feet without ever miss
ing it. The organization of such r
league would be much easier now than
it would have been a few years ago,
because almost nil of the big citi-3-5
have idle Federal league parks that
can he procured at very reasonable
figures.
Minors In Plan. Too.
And, if the big league players go
into the league making business, the
minor leaguers will undoubtedly fol
low in their footsteps. They will have
to do so because it is entirely their
fight and the big leaguers are help
ing them out when they themselves
have nothing at all at stake. Fur
thermore, it would be necessary for
the minors to organize leagues so that
the circuits of the big cities might
have a field to draw talent from.
If this kind of war comes the whole
baseball world will be thrown into
chaos and the game will probably be
knocked lopsided on every corner.
Many small cities like Topeka, Wich
ita, Sioux City and Lincoln will find
themselves with two baseball organ
izations when they cannot possibly
support them.
But the magnates and the powers
that be in organized baseball are not
likely to let matters go that far. They
will tuck their tails and run to take
the pill Dr. Fultz hands them, no
matter how big or bitter it may be.
The magnates know Fultz. They know
he will give them a fight they will
remember if he is forced to it, and
this is the only thing that indicates
the situation may. not be as serious as
it seems.
Tris Pays a Visit to Hal.
Cincinnati, O., Jan. 20. The chief
batsman of tha National league has
been entertaining the chief batsman
of the American league here and so
modest are both of these celebrities
that it was not until the latter de
parted that his presence was gener
ally known. Tris Speaker, the lead

paid a visit to Hal Chase of the Cin
cinnati team, spending five days with
him.

STEEL TO REPLACE W000
SHAFTS IN GOLF CLUBS
WJieaton, 111.. Jan. 20. The
dearth of suitable hickory shafts
for golf clubs has brought up the
question of steel shafts among golf
ers in this section. It is said that
the steel clubs undoubtedly will
give greater distance with less ef
fort than those with wooden shafts,
but it is expensive to use them, for
the wooden heads split easily, when
attached to a steel shaft.
Professionals assert that clubs
with steel shafts pick a ball out
of the heavy lies much more clean
ly than those with the wooden
shafts and also give greater dis
tance. Lately a steel shaft made
on the principle of the girder has
found favor and gives greater bal
ance, at the same time proving a
rest to the wrists.
IMPROVE NET MATCHES
Tennis Association to Give Special At
tention to Doubles This Season.
Cincinnati. O., Jan. 20. Competi
tion in doubles in tennis is to be en
couraged the coming season, according
to Ralph Holterhoff of Cincinnati, a
member 'of the executive committee
of the United States Lawn Tennis as
sociation. "
"The executive committee will
recommend to the national meeting In
New York. Feb. 9. that an open tour
nament for the national championship
he held in the fall along the same lines
as the singles championship," Mr. Hol
terhoff said, "while the committee
went on record as opposed to the pres
ent doubles system, it does not want
the doubles abandoned.
"The committee also will recom
mend a rule that the champions of the
previous season must play thru the
tournament. The present rule requir
ing at least one member of a team
playing in sectional doubles to be a
resident of that section, probably will
be abolished."
A H0MEF0R SLAVES
Johnson Would Give Ball Players
Charity Instead of just Dues.
Chicago, Jan. 20. A home for
aged and disabled baseball players,
supported jointly by the teams of the
American and National leagues is the
movement that is being inaugurated
by President Ban Johnson.
The American league dictator today
discussed the plan and stated that he
would take it up immediately with
the clubs in his league, to see if a
scheme, whereby each club would set
aside a certain sum each season, to
be used for the support of the insti
tution, could be worked out.
The old home idea is the outcome
of the yearly recurring discussion as
to what to do with the immense sums
that are piling up as a result of each
world's series. Johnson is determined
to cut down the amount that goes to
the- players and commission and even
the amount that is turned into the
major league chests. The latter is an
assessment on the net earnings and
goes to pay salaries and expenses of
league employes.

AFTER AREPEATER
Wilbert Robinson Wants to Win
Another Pennant.
IIes Xot Satisfied With What
Dodgers Bid Last Season.
BY JACK VEIOCK.
New York, Jan. 20. Your Unole
Wilbert Robinson is casting longing
orbs toward another National league
championship.
Ever since the season of 1916 came
to a close and the world's series re
sulted so disastrously for the Robins
Uncle Wilbert has been dreaming and
planning.
Baseball scribes and baseball mag
nates have hinted from time to time
that the Robins were lucky to grab
! the 19 I'd flag. And when it is re
membered that the Phillies and
Braves, not to mention the Giants,
were doing some tall ball playing as
the race neared a close, the victory
of the Robins does appear to have
' been helped along by timely "breaks.
I The break In the winning streak of
the Giants was one of these.
Robby Not Satisfied.
Nevertheless, the Robins copped,
and all credit for their victory should
be given them. Yet Uncle Wilbert is
not satisfied. He wants to prove to
the baseball public at large that he
can pull the same stunt again. Thus.
he is figuring on new stunts for the
coming season, and the new plan will
consist largely of some shifts in his
battle array.
You may guffaw, Mr. Fan, when
Uncle Wilbert announces that he may,
play Fred Merkle at shortstop this
year. But wait! '
In Jake Daubert Uncle Wilbert has
a very capable first sacker. He need
not worry about the initial corner as
long as Jake's underpinning does not
go back on him, as it did lor a time
last season. He also has Merkle. If
Jake hits the skids he can pin Merkle
to the first corner and get by. But
that isn't what worries Robinson.
Must Have Shortstop.'
He admits that the Dodgers must
have the shortstop position strongly
fortified if they hope to be in the
running for Governor Tener's silk
banner this year. Last season Ivan
Olson did the big end of the short
stopping. But Ivan was wobbly. He
did not cover the ground with the
agility necessary to a big league
shortstop. He was erratic, and often
in the tightest of pinches.
To find a short fielder who can
handle the position satisfactorily is
the task Robinson has assigned to
himself. It is some task, particularly
when we remember that there are so
few -shortstops available for the man
agers who need them.
Robby has the youngster Fabrique,
who is said to have the makings of
a major league star. In the Interna
tional league Fabrique was a bear. In
the National league he may prove to
need considerable seasoning. So Un
cle Wilbert has decided to try Merkle
at short, and he believes he can make
a star out of the erstwhile Giant.
Give Merkle Chance.
Merkle has often expressed the de
sire to play short. He has always be
lieved that if given the proper chance
he could make good at short, and
Charley Mathewson has the same
opinioni Matty says Merkle can play
a mighty sweet game of ball at sec
ond. Then, why not at short? At
least, Robby says he is going to find
ITI.TZ GRANDSTANDING.
That Is What Coast Leagno Magnate
Thinks of Strike Threats.
Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 20. Dave
Fultz is making a "grandstand play"
with the players' fraternity, according
to John Powers, president of the Los
Angeles club, who arrived from Chi
cago. He adds that the major mag
nates are prepared to figl.t the fra
ternity to a finish.
Powers states that he has completed
all arrangements to get his pick of the
"turnbacks" of the Cubs and Pittsburg
Pirates this morning.
Want to Fool Cubans Now.
Chicago, 111., Jan.' 20. Before leav
ing for the east, Harry Pollok, mana
ger of Freddie Welsh, assured Nate
Lewis, manager of Charlie White, that
White could have a 25-round bout
with Welsh if Havana promoters
would offer a suitable purse.
WILLIE JACKSON IS
NOW UP AMONG 'EM
0 .;jjjS$ i
Willie Jackson.
Willie Jackson. Philadelphia'!
speedy young lightweight, hopped in
to fistic fame when he knocked out
Johnny Dundee in ihe first round of
their fight in Philadelphia recently
It was the first tim in something
like 150 hat ties that Dundee has ever
been handed the k- o. Jackson han
been regarded as a fast and clever
boxer, but unable to hife His latest
performance will correct the impres
sion. He is not yet twenty and looks
good for a big career.
Probably Jimmy Jackson or old Bill
Rapps will come fcaek to Topeka and or
ganize an independent team if tbe Players
Fraternity decides to launch a few
leagues.
A rumor is going the rounds of 'Wash
burn that Dr. Kennedy may not wait until
next fall to elect a new football captain,
but that he may call an election before the
June vacation days.
If the game between Nebraska and the
University of Michigan ends in a way that
pleases both schools next f;tll it will prob
ably mean the establishment of permanent
relations between the two institutions,
which later on will probably lend to agita
tion for the establishment of a new con
ference. In certain circles at Ann Arbor it is
understood there is a deniaud that the
Wolverines get back into n conference. And
there are a few Nebraska ns who would
like to see Dr. Stewart withdraw from the
Missouri Valley conference. If the two
schools vronld get together, they would
have little trouble forming a dpw organiz
ation and could probably get Notre Dame
to join them.
Those who are seeking to compel Kansas
pool balls to close at 9 o'clock at night
should go whole hng'or none. They ought
to insist that theaters, movie houses and
restaurants close at the same hour and
that the street cars stop running at the
curfew tolling. In fact, it might be more
in keeping , with the fanaticism of the
whole thing if they would word tbe law
in such manner that it would require ev
erybody to get between the sheets prompt
ly at 9 o'clock.
There is no doubt that Hutchinson Is
"hog wild" over the prospect of getting
Topeka's place in the Western league. This
week a prominent Salt City hotel man an
nounced that be would gladly give a check
for $50 to help bring Savage there.
Topekans believe that all this Hutchin
son hot air is the result of a blow off
at Pneblo after which Savage realises that
it will not be practical to go to the Colo
rado town. And there is a possibility that
the hunch tbe Topekans hold la a correct
one.
t,lke Germany and Austria, Dave Fultz
and his Players' Fraternity will probably
have to fight it out to the bitter end now.
And there is no denying that Ban Johnsou
is a typical John Bull.
Of course the ball players can force the
magnates to their terms if they all stick to
gethers But most ball players are ex
farmer lads, and farmers have never been
known to stick together very long on any
one thing.
Since defeating Cowler. Fred Fulton's
chest has expanded several inches. Jie is
now able to get enough wind into his
lungs to enable him to say: "You bet
your life 1 can lick Jess Willard!"
The basketball game between Wash
burn and Bethany, scheduled to have been
plared here tonight has been postponed to
a later date. The Ichabods will fill in by
going to Atchison to play Midland college
tonight.
Williams to Meet McNeil.
Kansas City, Mo-, Jan. 20. Kid

SHOW CANNED GOODS
Glenwood Mother-Daughter Club Will
Exhibit Product at K. S. A. C.
Manhattan, Kan., Jan. 20. One of
the features of farm and home week
at the agricultural college. February
5 to 10, will be the exhibit of canned
goods of the Glenwood Mother-Daughter
Canning club. This club consist
ing of twenty-nine mother-daughter
teams from the Glenwood community
in Leavenworth county and conducted
under the auspices of the Leaven
worth county farm bureau and the
agricultural college, is only two years
old but it has canned more products
and a greater variety than auy other
club In the United States. More than
11,000 quarts of fruits, vegetables
and meats were canned by this club
in 1916, and one of its teams canned
253 different varieties and combina
tions.
"This club has won great distinc
tion," said E. C. Johnson, director of
the extension service of the agricul
tural college, "not only by reason of
tne great quantity and variety of
products canned and the general ex
cellence of its work, but on account
of its influence in .promoting neigh
borliness and building up the com
munity in which the club is located,
both from the economic and social
standpoint and the inspiration it has
furnished to other communities to do
likewise.".
The president of the club, Mrs. J.
M. Timmons of Bonner Springs, will
give an address on the history of the
club and its work Thursday afternoon
February 8, followed by a canning
demonstration by two of the mother
daughter teams from the club. A
club exhibit consisting of several
thousand Jars of canned products will
be on exhibit.
