account the laxities of the various sec

.Manager La Clair had released him.
Manager La Clair stated to Secretary H.
V.Shurtleff; of the amateur commission,
that he had not released the player
who was also signed with the Park
Athletic Club of the Northern Associa
tion. Chlsm's suspension is similar to sev
eral others that hi-ve occurred this
year, and players have been kept out
of the games by reason of not knowing
whether they had been released. Lax
ity In clerical work has caused the
secretary of the commission hours of
labor where a moment could have been
taken to notify him of releases.
Secretary and Mrs. H. V. Shurtleff,
who handle the releases and contracts
of the commission which Involves more
than 1.000 names, are constantly check

fcchools and have three games to their

Austin, who Is pitcher and captain
of the Tech team, will be depended upon
by the Maroon and Gray to bring back
the game for the Machinists, while

Last year these teams fought out the
championship In an added game, having
been tied up at the end of the sories
Tech won a memorable game at George
town Field against "Lefty" Holden,
who was considered unbeatable. So far
this year Western has played con
sistent baseball, and has been coached
with the Idea of taking all sorts of
chances and every possible opening.
The real strength of the Tech team Is
not known because of the numerous
shifts which have been made. Several

C C C CURES ECZEMA,
While Eczema, Acne, Tetter, Salt Rheum, etc., are troubles which
affect the skin, their source is far deeper than the outside cuticle. These
affections are caused by irritating humors, or uratic acid in the blood.
Such impurities inflamo and irritate the delicate net-work of fibrous
tissue which lles just beneath the surface of the outer skin, and th9
inflammatory discharge thus produced is forced out through the pores and
glands, and is continually kept up while the blood remains infected.
This exudation causes the formation of scales and crusts so often seen in
Eczema, and when they are scratched off tho flesh is left raw and more
susceptible to other infection. It can very readily be seen then that to
produce a cure the circulation must be purified and cleansed. This
S. 8. S. will do. It goes down to the very bottom, removes all humors
and impurities, neutralizes the excessive acids, of the system and in this
way removes the cause of disease. Local applications can only soothe
the Irritation and assist In keeping the skin cloan; they never produce a
cure because such treatment does not reach tho blood. 8. S. 8. restores
to the thin, acrid blood all its lost properties, makes it pure and rich and
enables it to nourish tho skin and keep it soft, smooth and healthy.
