REPUBLICANS WIN OVER DEMOCRATS Uncle Joe Cannon Consumes Crackerjack While Rooting For the Winners Washington. Aug. 11. The annual house baseball game went Republican yesterday by a score of 18 to 13. It was the first pemocratlc defeat in four y^ars.

Any Nose Knows You can't tell how a tobacco will taste by the way it looks. You can't tell by the way it listens, either—when the other fellow tells you how delicious it is. But there's one way to tell, before you smoke it, just how it's going to taste. Here's the test that can't fail—"put it up to your nose." Shake a little TUXEDO into your hand and rub it briskly between your palms until the friction brings out the aroma. Then smell it. Test all the other tobaccos you can get hold of —the more the better —in the same way. One—and one only—will stand that test That's TUXEDO. Your nose will tell you— quick—that TUXEDO alone has the sweet, fruity, appetizing fragrance that proves the flavor, the mild ness, the complete satisfaction you're looking for. The test is sure. Your nose never fools you. Your nose knows tobacco —instinctively—unmistakably. One pipe of TUXEDO—or all the pipes you can smoke from morning till night—will prove that your nose is right Put it up to your nose —today. sjiwcedo The Perfect Tobacco for Pipe and Cigarette• 10c Tins TKR AMERICAN TOBACCO COMPANY 5c Bags i " ' ' ■ • • '/•••' ' ; MILLS FACTOR IN LOCAL VICTORIES Hits Long Drive For Circuit Run; Burns and Volz Puzzle Bingoes Special to the Telegraph Binghamton, Aug. 11.—Mills, the big first sacker from Harrisburg had his big willow stick yesterday.

The Senators rallied In the last two innings. DeVinney was hit in bunches in the first and last Innings. Wllkes- Barre put a crimp in Syracuse's pen nant chances, score 4 to z. Doherty was hit hard, but kept the bingles scattered. Scranton had an easy vic tory over Utlca, score 11 to 3. The Utes put up a loose fielding game. If baseball fans want better base ball than they are getting in the New York State League, they must go to the majors. None of the recent games in the International League have any thing on those played on the Farrell circuit.
