Tiie minors want an aBreement that the big lean ties will respect their ter ritorial rights. contracts and options, as they will do In the case of the ma jor leagues. In event of a dispute between !h?: two bodies they want the national commission to appoint one man. who. with a member of the Na tional Association, will select a neutral arbitrator.

Don't Experiment with Catarrh; It Often Leads to Dread Consumption Y011 Will Never Ho Cured by Local Treatment Willi Sprays and Douches. Catarrh is a condition of the blood and cannot be cured by local applica tions of sprays and douches; this lias been proven by the thousands who have vainly resorted to this method of treatment. Catarrh should not be neglected or experimented with. The wrong treat | ment is valuable time lost, during which the disease Is Betting a firmer | hold upon its victim, and making it ! more difficult for even the proper j treatment to accomplish results. | Though Catarrh makes its first ap pearance in the nostrils, throat and ! air passages, the disease becomes more and more aggravated and finally reaches down into the lungs, and every one recognizes the alarming condition that results when the lungs are affected. Thus Catarrh may ba the forerunner of that most dreaded and hopeless of alf diseases, consump tion. No local treatment affords perma nent relief. Experience has taught that S. S. S. is the one remedy which attacks the disease at Its source, the blood, and produces1 satisfactory re sults In even the worst cases. Catarrh sufferers are urged to give S. S. S. a thorough trial. It is sold by all drug gists. You are invited to write to the Medical Department for expert ad vice as to how to treat your own case. Address Swift Specific Co.. <36 Swift Laboratory.
