Board of Trade and Chamber of Commerce Members to Strive for Cups. With two cups to fight for. to say noth ing of lionor and glory, the base ball teams representing the Chamber of Com merce and the Board of Trade, which are to clash in their annual contest at Amer ican League Park next Tuesday, are go ing through the hardest kind of practice every day. The Board of Trade forces are under the direction of Dr. F. E. Gibson, their captain, while the veteran Phil King has charge of the Chamber of Commerce team. That the game will not be a bur lesque of base ball is assured, for on both teams are enough really good base ball players, men who in their prime as ath letes were top-notchers. On the Board of Trade team are R. L. Connors, a crack pitcher; Charles Church. Mandeville Carlisle and R. S. Hume, all of whom are Rood ball players, while the Chamber of Commerce has Phil and Har ry King. Tinpue and Tom Hume and Will Meredith. Some of the others are not so good, but with the men mentioned in im portant positions on both teams excessive run getting should bo prohibited. Well Suppled With Players. As far as numl>ers go the Board of Trade appears to have a little the best of it, as Dr. Gibson has two or three men in training for every position, while King is decidedly short-handed, having but qfeven men. Still, the Chamber of Commerce ex pects to be there with bells on when Um pire Betts calls "Play." The purchase of tickets has been large and the committee in charge expects a big attndanee. Inasmuch as the game will be played for the benefit of the Playground Association fund, particular attention is being paid to the disposition of children's tickets. For every Hfty-cent adult ticket sold, two children's tickets are given away, while ttiose who pur chase two fifty-cent tickets are entitled to five children's tickets. The committee wants the little ones to be on hand to enjoy the music of the band, which will give a concert before the game and play appropriate selections between innings, and to add their voices to those of the | grown-up rooters.. Tiekets to the game are on sale all over town. A large supply has l?een left at the rooms of ttie Chamber of Commerce on the third fl,oor of the Brentano build ing. 1202 F street northwest, where they may be had at any hour of the day. The game will be called promptly at 4 o'clock p.m. Prior to that time the band concert rriay be heard by those who ap pear early to avoid the ru^h. Members of the Team. The members of the two teams are: Board of Trade?Pitchers, R. L. Connors, J. M. Chamberlain and B. H. Roescli; catchers, Charles D. Church and Smith Hempstone; tirst base, L. B.

PLAN TO OIL 6E0R6IA AVENUE PROPOSAL TO MAKE FINE AUTO MOBILE BOULEVARD. Expense to Be Borne by Members of Auto Club?Would Cost About $1,000. With the object of making Georgia ave nue a great automobile boulevard and having in view the raising of funds among members of the Automobile Club and others interested to oil the avenue throughout its entire length. Gist Blair has asked the Commissioners to report what the cost of the work would be. He will be told that the oil for Georgia avenue from the end of the asphalt pave ment at Park road to the District line would cost $2,054, but that Inasmuch as the District is oiling some of the streets the mowy necessary to be raised by out siders will be $1,092. "Since my conference with you." says Mr. Blair in his letter to Commissioner West, "I have conferred with the presi dent of the Automobile Club on Georgia avenue and others concerning the possi bility of raising money to oil this great thoroughfare to the District line, and have been much encouraged by their In terest in the subject. "They appreciate most highly the offer of the District government to authorize ub to use their wagons and labor to lay this oil on the surface of the street. I have been requested to submit an author itative statement which will enable us to show how much money will be neces sary to purchase the oil. This Involves, first, an accurate knowledge of the di mensions of the surface of Georgia ave nue from Florida avenue, or from the point of that street where the paving ceases, to the District line; second, the amount of oil required to properly cover this surface and its cost per gallon. May I request the Commissioners to have the department under them answer these questions to enable me to submit the fig ures to the gentlemen who are willing to co-operate with me In this matter." In response to a request from Commis sioner West, L. R. Grablll, superintendent of county roads, has made a report, as follows: "Based on the application of 'tarvia B,' the cost of material for the entire mac adamized portion of Georgia avenue north of Park road would be 31,600 gallons at cents per gallon, or $2,054. Of this road, the distance from Park road to Longfellow street (Brlghtwood Park) Is now being given an application of road oil which will last for at least part'of the season. The remaining distance from Longfellow street to the District line will require 10,800 gallons at 6% cents per gal lon, and amount to $1.01)2. The cost of standard road oil would be about the same. "These applications would probably last the rest of the season and would require some watering In dry weather. "The cost of liquid asphalt, which is more durable, would be about double the above. It would last well Into next 5'ear." Capt. Markliam, assistant to the Engin eer Commissioner, declared that for mere superficial treatment the "tarvia B" has given most satisfactory results. $85.40 Los Angeles and Return, Baltimore and Ohio R.

Intense Itching Eczema Drove Him Xearlv to Despair?Chiei Surgeon of a London Hospital Called It Worst Case He Had Ever Seen?Got Little or No Relief Until CUTICURA STOPPED HIS UNBEARABLE TORTURE '?Alwut four years ago, iu Ujn<l<>n. I was troubled by a severe itching and dry. scurfy skin on mjfc ankles ami feet. The frame, in ? few days, was the case with my arms and scalp. I could hardly keep from scratching, which. I need hardly say, made It worse. Then large red patches appeared. w*th inflammation and soreness. After ten days, thousands of small red pimples formed. On becoming dry. these caused intense Itching. I was advised to go to the hospital for diseases of the skin. I did so, and was an out-patient for a month or more, the chief surgeon saying: 'I never saw such a bad case of eczema.' But I got little or no relief. Then I tried many so-called reme dies, but I became so bad that I almost gave up In despair. On coming to this country I heard so many accounts of cures by Cutlcura Remedies that I resolved, as a last resource, to give them a trial. This was after suffering agonies for twelve months, and right glad am 1 that I <!id so, for I was relieved of the almost unbearable Itching after two or three applications of Cuti mra Ointment. I continued Its use, combined wiUi a liberal nse of Cutlcura Soap and Cutlcura Resolvent Pills, and am more than thankful to say that after using rhree sets of the Remedies. I was completely cured. I can only add that, should any one be suffering as I did. I hope that they will do as I did, and I am sure of the re sults. Henry Searle, 2022 Cross St., Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 8 awl 10. *07."

THE CHESAPEAKE AND POTOMAC TELEPHONE COMPANY 722 12th Street N.W. $50 FOR 50 IDEAS. Men Appreciate Our Unique Plans for Our Homes. "You won every woman's heart in this town when you agreed to provide plenty of closets in your new homes. But the men will rise up and call you blessed if you set apart a room, even a small one, for the use of the man in the home?a place to smoke ?a den in which a man can ruminate without being thought un sociable !" Now hear what another friend says: '"Of course, a man ap preciates your attitude toward women's home ideals, and the im mediate selling of those homes proves what the men thought. But this new step?this consideration for the head of the house?is as diplomatic a move as could have been conceived. You proved your sincerity before?you will this time because the women whose ideas you accepted will go to see if we could equal their originality. "Of course, your terms clinch every man's attention, but my interest does not only lie in figures. I hoped I could have something to say about the home before I bought it." Nobody ever thought before that people ought to be consulted in regard to the dwellings they were going to buy or what feature they desired most in the home There was no reason, however, why things should go on this way forever. That Is why we determined to change the old order of things by asking for ideas for our new homes. $i.oo for Each Idea We Can Use. Men are asked to send In ideas only as requested- Bring your ideas to ths office if you desire. BEDROOMS are the next subject to be considered. Middaugh & Shannon, Inc.,- Owner, Colorado Building.
