opening day attendance for a
more pretentious league than the Interstate.
The Washington crowd was swelled
by the 700 Wheeling enthusiasts who
went over on the special train on the
Baltimore & Ohio at 1:20 In the afternoon.
It was a noisy, enthusiastic but
thoroughly good-natured crowd, that
-lid hot cast anything but credit on the
town from which It came. The Wheeling

teams don't hit that way when there Is
no margin to sacrifice. Woshlngton
feored two In the second, but It was In
that Inning that Darrah's boys gave as
fine an exhibition of free hitting as the
oldest crank had ever seen. Hit followed
hit until five had trotted over the
plate. Then the rain cams down and

CHICAGO. May J.-The Colts made It
three straights to-day In a game full of
hard hitting and rather loose fletdlng.
The batting was about equally divided,
but Brlggs had the better of It in keeping
hits scattered, and the locals were
fortunate In placing the ball Into the
crowd with men on bases. The great
crowd accounts for the large number of
three baggers made, ground rules allowing
three bases on such hits btlng
agreed upon. Plynn easily carried ofT
the fielding honors. Dahlen the stick

MORQANTOWN. W. Va.. May 3.?
The Weat Virginia University base ball
team opened the season on the home
grounds yesterday by playing two
games against the Western University
of Pennsylvania team. The home team
won both games, the first by a score of
8 to 6. and the second,a five-Inning contest,
by a score of 8 to 6. The exhibition
wns a poor one from every point of
view, but the superior playing, If any of
It can be classed as superior, was done
by the West Virginia team. Mitchell,
for the Pennsylvanians, pitched a fairly
good game in the first contest, but his
*upport was heartrending, and the team
behind him could not hit anything.
Hickman, for the University, pitched
well, giving his opponents but five hits
and striking out eight of them. But the
team work was not first class, but Womelsdorf
at short and Hill ot first did
some pretty playing, all that broke the
monotony of a stupid game.
In the seoond game Hill pitched for
the University and Anderson for Pennsylvania
Hill has a beautiful drop, but
could not use it, because of the poor
bock stop work of Harding. For that
reason he was batted quite freely, as
was Anderson, also. The second game
was very much of a farce, much of the
time being consumed In wrangling over
decisions by the umpire, the Pennsylvanians
faring very badly at the hands of
that official. They say they will never
again meet the university in any kind
of athletic sports. Good crowds attended
the games, as there was a curiosity
to see the work of the team. There
is some gooo material In It, but the bad
wrv nmminent and some good prac
tlce work will b<? neccssary to put them
In tho drat class.

Eatiuff the wrotur things, and too mod:
of them at the wrong time, gives the
stomach aud the other digestive organs
too much to do?gives them work that
they cannot be expected to do. Suck
things prevent the Tree and regular action
of the bowels, bring sick headaches,
biliousness, kidney troubles, restless
sleep, lassitude, nervousness, and plant
the seeds of disease in all parts of the j
body. Health comes just as easy as dis- I
esse. It grows up from those little sugarcoated
seeds of health ? Dr. Pierce's
rieasant Pellets. They are for nothing
in the world but to keep the bowels reg- :
ular, the stomach free from gas and fermentstion,
and the liver active.
They go about their business without
making any fuss. They are very gentle in
their action and cause no griping, or r
other unpleasantness. c
They do not take the place of Nature _
?they merely help her. No one ever "
becomes a slave to their use. When the
digestive action becomes regular and vig- ;
orous?stop taking the" Pellets." When
you have esten too much ?take one. I
when constipation shows itself and head- I
ache begina?take the 'Pellets" for a *
day or two.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellet*?it's an r
easv name to remember. Don't let a d
designing druggist talk you into " some* I
thing just as good." He makes more i
money on the "just as good" kind.
That's why he would rather sell them. ,
That's wh v you had better not lake them. 1
