Bothered With Itching for a Long Time — Found No Relief Until Cuticura Was Used —Kentucky Lady Now Completely Well. WISHES SUCCESS TO CUTICURA REMEDIES " After using Cuticura Soap, Oint ment, and PiUs, I am very glad to say I am entirely relieved of that itching humor of the head and scalp which I was bothered with auitc a length of time. I did not use the Cuticura Rem edies more than three times before I began to get better, and now I am com pletely well. I suffered with that, humor on my head, and found no relief until I took the Cuticura Remedies. I think I used several cakes of Cuticura Soap, three boxes of Ointment, and two vials of Pills. I am doing all I can to publish the Cuticura Remedies, for they have done me good, and I know they will do others the same. With best, wishes for vour success.” Mrs. Mattie Jackson, June 12, 1905.

The team should at least take three of the four from the taHeaders. A telegram from Shreveport last ngilit Bays that President Kavanaugh has sent a telegram to that city to the effect that he will rule out all Birmingham protested games In which Shortstop Castro played If it is proven that the sale of Castro to the Birmingham club wras not bona fide. Better results may be expected in the game today and the one tomorrow. The dope figures Birmingham to win at least ohe of these and possibly both. No rea son why the Barons should not. Clarke Is due to pitch one game and Wilhelm the other, and either is apt to win, and both may. , Several Birmingham people were in New Orleans to see the Sunday game, and they state that the members of the team Beemed to be in excellent spirits and that every one of them was playing to win. Montgomery felt keenly his errors, which lost the game in all probability, but every one encouraged him and told him that the best of players have their off days. The Barons have lost two games in suc cession, which means a considerable les sening of the leading that the team had several days ago. Memphis is playing better ball now than at any time during th season and her pitchers are working In great form. Ill luck lost yesterday's game for the Barons. A false bound of a bounder to Gear prevented his catching a runner at the plate and thus the lone lome run was scored. Atlanta is rapidly forging to the front as a possibility. She Is now a good third, and is winning a large majority of her games on the road. She has dropped only two out of nine games on the road, end that is n wonderful road record. The Barons have played nine game# and lost three of them, a percentage of Ml, whlen Is also a wonderful road record. Both teams return home next week and end the season on their home grounds, and either can be depended on to win a largo majority of the games at home.

Montgomery at Little Rock. Memphis, August 27.—(Special.)—A two bagger from the Memphis catcher, fol lowed by a single that dribbled through the infield then wiggled from Dale Gear’s hands long enough to allow a runner to reach the plate proved to be the lonely tally born in the first of the series be tween the Barons and the Mcmphii at Red Elm this afternoon. Frank Owens gaged Sallee in the fifth for the first local hit of the day. It was a high drive that under ordinary circum stances might have fallen to the lot of a center or a right fielder, but Molesworth was playing nearer left than usual and Smith was almost mated to the side line, in expectation of a smash in that direc tion. Owens* hit netted two bases. Then Plass was given the only pass of the game, and Stockdale followed with a grounder that traveled past Montgomery and Castro. Gear dashed forward in the effort to toss the runner out at the plate, but a momentary fumble caused by a false bound enabled Owens to tally and Plass to reach third. There was no other scor ing, howover, as Plass was trapped at the plate in the effort to reach the final goal on a double steal attempted with as sistance of Stockdale. Flawless Support. Flawless fielding by the locals enabled j Stockdale to win. He possessed perfect I control in addition. Molesworth, the first to face him in the first round, singled to center and was sacrificed to second by Smith, but Montgomery struck out, and Umpire Shuster, who took the plate end j of the double system, declared Meeks out ! on strikes, much to the disgust of Meeks and the Baron sympathizers In the stand, who thought the big fellow might have had two bats and then failed to reach the "strike." The second and third Innings witnessed the locals disposition of the visitors in brief order. Smith opened the fourtli with a single to center, but Montgomery's attempt to hunt was caught on the fly by Carey, and Meeks followed with a fast bounder to Stockdale. who wheeled | to Nicholls In time to cut Smith off. Then Nioholls hurried the hall to Carey in front I of Meeks, completing the only double play of the day. After two wore out In the fifth Walters singled, but Garvin contribtued the final out with a grounder to Plass. Sallee sent a long liner between right and center in the sixth that caused groans from the local fans. The drive looked , good for three bases, but after those ] watching the ball turned attention to Sal lee there was laughter, for Sallee had j turned almost a complete somersault in j rounding first base and was forced to scramble back to that station after he stumbled over the bag. Sallee was first up but couldn't connect with the plate for Molesworth sacrificed him to second and he trotted to third on Smith's grounder to first, but Montgomery sent a grounder to second and was retired. Stockdale Was Master. Sallee was presented with the last op portunity to break into the run getting. ( for in the remaining three innings Stock dale was master and but nine men faced him, two striking out and the others flip ping small flys to the infield or high chances to the outfield that caused no trouble. Salee kept his tab free from hits until the fifth, when Owens and Stockdale plucked theirs as already told. Babb in the sixth, and Plass in the seventh, se cured safe ones but never got further than second. The Official Score. Birmingham— AB. R. BH. PO. A. E.

CROP IS REPORTED AS DETERIORATED EXCESSIVE RAINS ARE HURTING j COTTON CROP IN TEXAS, OKLA HOMA AND INDIAN TERRITORY. BOLL WEEVIL ALSO DOES HARM Dallas, Tex.. August 27.—The Galveston News tomorrow will publish reports from 503 correspondents In cotton-producing districts of Texas, Oklahoma and Indian Territory, written on August 27. They show that the crop has deteriorated and is further threatened by reason of ex cessive rains; intermittent showers and I depredations of boll weevil and boll ; worms in a very large proportion of the territory covered. Texas conditions as compared with the same date In 1905 is 8.1 per cent better, Indian Territory. 4.5 per cent better, and Oklahoma 12 per cent better. Insect damage in the territories has been very much less than in Texa.s. More than two-thlr-ls of the Texas coun ties report excessive rains, rank growth i of plant, shading of fruit and in some j instances, rolling, arrested development, j and shedding either because of the weather, bugs or worms. About one-fourth of the cotton coun- . ties report favorable conditions. Picking is general only in the southern portion of the state and is delayed by rains. | Labor for coming picking, as well as | for practically all other industries, is | scarce. Many correspondents say that if I the rains would cease and sunshiny | weather would prevail, the crop In their sections would still be good. Upon the \ other hand, a very large number of correspondents declare there will be no top crop, and some that the middle crop Is doomed. MASS MEETING TO BE HELD SATURDAY PEOPLE OF JONESBORO WILL MEET FOR PURPOSE OF NAMING A TICKET FOR MUNICIPAL OF FICES—ELECTION NEXT MONTH. ' _ Bessemer, August 27.—(Special.)—Mayor J. D. Martin of Jonesboro has officially called a mass meeting of the citizens of that town to be held at the city hail on next Saturday night for the purpose of naming a full ticket of Mayor and Board of Aldermen for the coming municipal election. Inasmuch as the attempt to hold a mass meeting for the same purpose on last Saturday night was a flat failure, on account of the lack of interest on the part of the citizens, the call of the pres ent Mayor, who it Is understood will be a candidate for re-election himself, is ex pected to bring on some interesting de velopments in the political situation at Jonesboro. Miss Willie Patton is visiting relatives and friends in Chilton and Shelby counties. The police court was continued over one day this morning on account of the gen eral ferment attendant on the primary. There were ociwcen fifteen and twenty sn ail cases on the docket.
