Eirnie Lush, wjio ihas been training
in the South with the New York
Giants, arrived this morning in this
city on a sad mission, to attend the
funeral of his mother, who died on
Tuesday after a three days' illness.
When Lush left this city March 1 his
mother was in the best of health.
Eirnie received intelligence of his
mother's serious illness while in Dallas.
Texas, and: immediately started North
When he received ; the' telegraph he
wired back to inform him of her con
dition by wire at St. Louis. Mo. It
was here that he received the sad in
telligence that his mother had passed
away before he could see her. He
has been traveling night and day ever
since, arriving in New York at an ear
ly hour today. "
Lush's appearance this morning
shows that his training in the South
nas aone him a world ox good.- We
is the picture of health, and weighs 172
pounds, probably having lost a few
pounds in his traveling. He walks
with a slight limp, due to the injury
he sustained to his right ankle in at
tempting the hook slide to second base,
and which Treally , put him out of. the
running, for until this mishap he was
going along in great style. -
Lush has considerable praise for
Manager John McGraw, who, accord
ing to Eirie, is a great old scout for
the young fellows. Er.nie does '.not
speak well of the accommodations In
the South. . The hotels, he. says, are
on. the blink, while the eats are awful.
He always has been a glutton for
milk, but was often shy of .this bever
age while in the South.: Butter he
says is an almost unknown quantity
there at times. Marlin Springs,' Lush
states, is a great .headth resort. He
saw rheumatics every day bathing- in
inar, and the Tope which hanged him
as souvenirs. They take no fooling
down there, no monkey b-usinesitfrom
the negroes of criminal instinct. JEQaeh
drug store, he states, is a full fledged
arsenal. "When there is a. negro fight
abut,K the whites rush to the drug
stores and arm themselves ready to
Lush told how lie came to get a
chance to play the first bag. Christy
Mathewson had been sent along with
a. squad of young recruits to Dallas
for the first game of the season. There
were ten in all counting "Big- Six."
Lush had expected to play in the out
field, but when the game started
Mathewson, who refuses to perform on
the Sabbath, discovered that the day
was Sunday. He had planned to play
first base-himself . f None of the play
ers had ever played on that bag, most
of them being pitchers, so Lush volun
teered He made so favorable an im
pression that McGraw kept him on the
station during all the prelim games.
He improved so much that he was
picked to give ' battle with Merkle as
the regular first sacker. The sprain
ed ankle, however, came at an inop
portune time, just when he was going
good. Lush is a sympathizer of Josh
Xevore, who is booked for a regular
position in the outfield. Brnie states
that next to himself, Josh is the best
hard luck player on the team. Josh
is always running into accidents.
Lush will not report to the Giants
till a week from tomorrow, when the
McCjirawites arrive at the Polo Grounds
in time for the game with Yale. During-
the week he will go up to Ntew
Hai en and get out with the college
boy, and also undergo treatment for
his ankle. He thinks Birother Billy
can work out a cure for him.
ES nie does not expect to stay with
the Giants. He thinks that he will
get in either the Eastern, or "Western
the hot waters which bubble from the! Leagues. "Give mie one year in either
earth. The water, he states, is great
for sprains and bruises.
Eirnie witnessed f the lynching of a
negro who assaulted a little 2 1-2 year
old white girl in Dallas. The brute,
he states, was confined. In the . city
court house on the second floor. Then
place was surrounded- by an angry
mob and the negro corralled in his
room. ! The ring-leaders had a long
rope which they attached about his
neck and threw one end out of the
window. The crowd from the outside
began tugging at the other end and
pulled the negro from the room. He
lended on his head on the ground be
low. The fellow was then dragged
about a mile and strung to an; arch.
On the way the people pummelled the
negro,, tearing! off pieces of hisdoth-
of these leagues, and I'll be back with
the bigi fellows in another year. I
want to get where I can get into the
game every day." :
E "nie tells a good) one on Rluhe Wad
dtell of the St. Louis Americans, the
mat i . who never has a cent coming to
Mm when pav day comes around. The
Bra ima were in Dallas with the Giants
and Waddell met up with Bugs Ray
moj d, the bad man of the . Giants.
"Ti .t man," says "Waddell, referring
to 1 jaymond, "would- be a wonder if he
only' took care of himself." Those
whe know the Rube's propensity for
bad tsliaing consider this a good joke.

In the ' majority of cases
. glasses which are especially
adapted for reading and sewing
cannot be used for seeing at long
distances. This Is particularly
true if the wearer is over 45
' years of age. To some persons
it is very annoying to be com
pelled, to remove the glasses ev
ery time it is necessai-y to look;
across the room. , Within - the
last few weeks have heard this
spoken of a great deal. The
trouble can be easily obviated
by wearing bifocal lenses. In
these the upter parts are fitted
for distance and the lower parts
for reading. ' When you look
down upon your sewing or book
you look through the lower
parts, when you raise your eyes
you look at a distance. You

natural eye that is possible to

CURES ECZEMA QUICKLY
New Discovery Has Revolutionized
the Treatment of Skin Diseases
Nothing in the history of medicine
has ever approached the success of the
marvelous skin remedy known as pos
lam, which, it is safe to say, has cured
more cases of eczema and skin dis
eases than any remedy ever offered
for these ills.
The success of poslam is not at all
surprising when It is considered that
even a very small quantity applied to
the skin stops itching immediately ana
cures chronic cases in two weeks. The
very worst cases of eczema, as well as
acne, herpes, tetter, piles, salt rheum,
rash, crusted humors, scaly scalp and
every form of Itch, yield to it readily.
Blemishes such as pimples, red noses,
muddy and inflamed skin disappear al
most immediately when poslam is ap
plied, the complexion being cleared
Every druggist keeps both the 50-cent
size (for minor troubles) and the $2
Jar, and either of these may be ob
tained In Bridgeport at Jennie Hamil

able drug stores.
But no one is even asked to purcnase
poslam without first obtaining an ex
perimental package which will be sent
