k sPEcinc blood impurity
Catarrh is a decp-seated blood dis?
ease, one which no amount of local]
treatment will ever permanent!}' cure.
The bencfirini efleets of washes,!
sprays, inhalations, etc., are only,
temporary, and when left off the oldi
condition returns, because the blood
is infected with catarrhal matter and'
impurities. This impure condition
of the circulation irritates and iri-l
names the delicate mucous mem?
branes and tissues and produces the
well known ..symptoms of ringing'
noises in the head and ears, mucus in
the throat, headaches, watery eyes,
partial deafness, sore throat, genera'
impairment of health, etc. This con?
dition will .remain, growing worse as
long as the catarrhal matter is al?
lowed to remain in the blood. Being
a specific blood impurity, there is only
one way to cure Catarrh, and that is
to purify the blood. Nothing equals
S. S. S. for this purpose. It attacks
the disease at its head?in the circu?
lation?and by thorotighlj' renovating
the blood and
cleansing it of all
impure mattet,
makes a perma?
nent and lasting
cure of the dis?
ease. For forty
years S. ?S. S. has
been recognized
as the best blood
purifier, and the thousands of cases of
Catarrh it has cured is proof that it is
the very medicine needed by those
who suffer with this trouble. Boole on

SHAFTS FROM SPORTLMD
By GUS MALBERT.
Forget ting all past grievances,
haven't you come to the conclusion'
that there it going to be mighty good
baseball in the Virginia League this
s< ason ?
Because if you have not. it is about
time that you were convinced.
There is going to bo pood baseball.
Baseball of tho serious, gd-get-'em
hind. With every man young arid
anxious and fighting every minute to
win games.
Don't forgot that there is a real man
at the head of the league to carry out
ail of the laws.
Also realist, that making the teams
live up to the law? is largely the es?
sence of successful baseball.
Heretofore the league has been
largely automatic. Fach team was a
power unto itself, and did the things
which the management of thai partic- |
nlar team deemed wise to make the I
team popular.
This season it will be slightly dif?
ferent. The league will bo run not as
individuals might want, but with it
view tn the bust interests of the or?
ganization as a winde.
It might be ha I'd on some for a
little whllo, hUt it will not take the.
magnates long to learn that that Is the
only way to run a baseball league.
1 can picture in my mind's eye sev?
eral lights which the president will
have on his hands because of his de?
sire to make tho Virginia Dengue stack
up with the best in tho United Suites
But. 1 can also picture Iiis victory after
the owners have come to the conclu?
sion that what is best for one must
be best for all.
! Now as to salary limit. Words are
I easy to find, it takes not a genius to
I frame a story about the salary limit
I being raised. But it does take a
I genius to make a beer pocket hook lit.
I a wlno appetite.
If the salary limit i- raised then f
will be perfectly willing to step out
in front of the grandstand it t Broad
Streit Park and confess that 1 am
everything which some of my kind
friends have Insinuated that r am.

Reputation of Sprinters Will De?

town Race.
[Special to The Times-Dispatch.!
Chariottesvllle, Va., February 15.?
The relay race with Georgetown and.
incidentally, the chances --f winning
tlie point tr?pliy In Washington on!
March I are the two subjects that are. J
holding the immediate attention of
Trainer Lannigan and the members and
followers of the Virginia track squad.
Until a week beforo the first race the
relay team has always been an un?
known quantity to almost everybody,
perhaps to Trainer Lannigan himself,
and this is particularly truo this year.
"Whatever the team may consist of. it
will have to show its best work against.
Georgetown, as til is is the only
race scheduled at present, and tho rep?
utation of the team will rest With the
result. Although it could not bo
learned to-day when tho tryouts will
bo run, it is probable they will be held
to-mororw or next day on the Madison
Hall outdoor track.
Douglas, sub-pitcher on tho varsity
nine, nnd Todd, quarter back on the
football team, will b?> looked lb as
the nucleus of the new team. Both of
thorn ran on the relay last year and
are fast men. Todd. running from
scratch, finished fourth in the quartcr
mile at the Johns Hopkins meet Sat?
urday night. Berkeley seems to be thoj
most promising man after the two men-I
Honed, lie has done excellent work
in the two indoor meets, winning sec-1
bud place in the quarter-mile, both in
Wash In igt on nnd Haiti more. At the1
latter place he was only three yards
ahead of the scratch man, Todd, at
the start. Willianis, Plunkett, McMor
rles and Caldwell will make somebody
work hard to hold a place on the team.
It now semes probable that "Larry"
Martin will be able to enter the
Georgetown meet, hut if ho does so at
the last minute he will be far from I
condition, for he will not have had
any practice at all. He has water on
the knee, and has been under treat?
ment lor the past month. The ban?
dages are still on, and he can hardly
walk, much loss run. He is extremely
anxious to participate in the Hlue find
Gray meet, ami will enter in the hur?
dles if he can possibly do so.

National League Enters Into
Twenty-Year Contract for
Bonus of $500,000.
Now York, February 15.?For a
bonus, said on good authority to be
|500,000, the National League of Pro?
fessional Baseball Clubs, in session
hero to-day. made a twenty-year con?
tract with a prominent sporting goods
firm to use a basoball of its manu?
facture for the official league ball, it
is the same ball that has been used
by the National League, for the last
sixteen years, and in adopting it ae.aln
the magnates rejected an offer of a
Cincinnati firm, said to have been
$335,000 in twenty annual instalments
of $16,250, of which half was to be In
cash and half In baseballs supplied.
Heretofore it has been commonly
supposed, even among the players, that
the big leagues paid about 97 cents
apiece for balls which sell at retail at
$1.25. But the developments of to-day
show that they not only pay nothing,
but receive all the halls they use free,
and a very considerable sum of cash
besides. The ball in question is made
in Chicago, and the contract com?
mences with the reason of 191'J.
The league schedule was adopted to?
day without change, and the schedule
already prepared ami sent out stands
for tho season. This shows that all of
the clubs will travel a gran,| total of
f.9,7.13 miles during tiie season.

age by his consist cut work.
Blair, Williams, Bliley and Whitman,

noon getting limbered tip. Koine good

Make a Record for
Richmond.
The Richmond College track team
was out again yesterday afternoon, ami
Coach IIagaman hari them going over
the hurdles and around the track. The
Improvement which the candidates for
the various positions aro making is
very gratifying to the coach. A large

This interest on the part of the col?
lege students is tilling the athletes
with a desire to win, and this desire
to win is proving of inestimable value
to the coach in the work which lie is
doing. It is now believed that bet?re
the great open-air meet, which will
be held tit the ball park on April -,
takes placo, Richmond College win

parable to any team in the South.
While that is a broad assertion, and
while it may appear to some as
stretching the facts, Coach Jlagaman
nevertheless feels that way about it,
find when the man who is training
j the. loam Is willing to make Much a
statement the mere outsider must be
I willing to accopt it until it Is dls
proven.
