[Special to Tho Tlmos-Dlspatch.J
Charlottosvlllo, Va., January 10.?
During thc course of the regular train?
ing In tljo Fayorweather gymnasium
this afternoon Trainer Lannlgun an?
nounced to his squad of tracH men that
providing he could get onough men in
alinpe he would send a relay team to
Hoston on February 10 to take part in
a triangular race betweon Virginia.
Harvard nnd Yalo. If this le dene
Virginia will bo represented In throo
Indoor relay races on that evening, for
in addition teams will be sent to Wash?
ington to meet Washington and Leo In
,i mile relay and North Carolina In a
iwo.tnlle relay race. This will moan
that "Pop" must have eight quartcr
.nlle men whom he can count upon
vith reasonable certainty, for tho pop?
ular trainer will not send a team that
he does not expect to win or one. that
will not hnve a reasonable, chance to I
ili. :-o. How Lannigan will make his.
t lections for this number of quarter
und half-rollers and yet leave other
men for the sprints and other events |
In tho Washington meet gives rise to j
Much speculation among the athletes. '
The team going to Washington will I
number possibly eighteen or twenty, |
lind with the four in Boston this will
open a number of places for the prom- |
j^inp runners, some of them compar?
atively new men.

tioh Howling Tournament, when hfe
gathered ?!>t? at the Palaos Alley, lust
?ilSfiit. Ho gave a pretty exhibition.
' ? In-' steady at all timer, and using u
crosq-flre which counted. He had goon
i mtrol of the ball, and time und again
brought th'.- gallery to Its foet by mak?
ing spares which, to a i?ss experienced
player, would have been impossible.
Chaplti deserves a world of credit
On new alleys, and with balls with
v. :.ich he |g unfamiliar, ho totaled
? n ? pl:;s :o make, jure that he will
he otis of the contenders in the. ftnal
riftmds, Bryant, though sixty-three
jilns behind the high man, managed to
pet away with the cash prize offered
?>>? the alley. Holling unsteadily at
first, with a corner alley ball which
?? tally counts for him. he worked up
i bhi a measly l?l in his opening gam*
to 2}(> |n the last game, after he ha<j
shifted ii a straight r.ttack. taking
the middle path and leaving the cor?
ners.
Most of the youngsters suffered from
luge fright and stayed away from tho
alleys. They Wd'thft gome no good.
. nd by shdv-ti'c- " the white feather
practically admitted that they were
afraid to take a chance. Certain it
that they could have lost none of
their prestlp- by tailing their placos
ufler they had entered. It could have
been far bolter, Iron) their standpoint,
.hud they never signed an entry blank .
tuylng that they would contest. Just'
. i>. out ot" thc twenty scheduled were
on the alley.-. These six did good
work, and not a single scoro is ono
to be ashamed ot.
The trouble with the beginners up
to tho present time has been tbeir en?
tire disregard of the foul line. Tho
scores, therefore, do not indicate just
what these boys oan do. Kor Instance,
for the benefit of the laymen. It should
bo stated that to cross thc foul line
means tho loss of the plus which arc
made on that ball. Thus some of the
low .scores aro low scotch only by de?
fault. Another year and all of this
will be changed. The. youngsters will
have gained experience. Until this
tournament practically none of them
had ever been required to strictly ad- j
here to the foul line rule.
To-night will bo the big night thua
far. All of the stars of the Richmond
Bow ling Association are scheduled to \
show what they can do. Most -of theso
men are familiar with tournament
rules and will therefore not bo handi?
capped. The tost will come purely
on nerve. Practically all of the men
are of equal r.blltty. Some may suffer
from cavinR kneei; or from mental dlS
; turbances, but, for the most part, they
j aro veterans. Look ovor the list of

once re!oeafc<3 hltn from custody. The
nest dey the govirnmant lBsued a eec
< nri warrant for his arrest, after which
Thorpe'o attorneys turrendertd him.
The C3se Is a rather peculiar one, In?
fi <much as Thorpe, prior to the action
on the part of Margaret S. Thorpe, ob
? lined a divorce from her. The divorce.
was granted by tho Circuit Court for j
Alexandria county. In the meantlmo |
Mrs. Thorpe Instituted divorce, proceed- I
ings In Washington. His failure to de- j
fond the action resulted In the court I
awarding hor alimony. Thorpe's al? '
leged failure to pay the alimony result?
ed in a warrant being sworn out charg?
ing him with non-support. The matter
will tiow be fought out in the courts
of tho District of Columbia,
j The divorce obtained by Thorpe was
by order of publication, that being the
law of the State where the defendant

time, It Is said, was a resident of the
District of Columbia.

The combination 'of healthful vegetable ingredients of which S. S. S. i9

ment of sores and ulcers of every kind. Since an impure condition of the
blood is responsible for the trouble, a medicine that can purify the blood is
the only hope of a successful cure; and it should be a medicine that not only
? leanses the circulation, but one that at the same time restores the blood to
its normal, rich, nutritive condition. S. S. S, 13 lust such a remedy. It is
made entirely of healing, cleansing vegetable properties, extracted from na?
ture's roots, herbs ana barks of the forest and fields. It has long been
recognized as the greatest of all blood purifiers, possessing the qualities
necessary to remove every impurity in the blood. When 8. S. S. has purified
the circulation, and strengthened and enriched it, sores and ulcers heal read?

By GUS MALBERT.
C. K. ?Williams, president of tho Vir?
ginia Leugne,' was In Itlclunohd y?s
tcrday, but not for the purpose of il's
cussing baseball. lie came on n purely
private matter, but Virginia League
alt a Ira uro so close to him that he
couldn't iiulte get away from some
talk, especially In view of the proposed
Invasion of the. so-culled outlaw.--.
"The Virginia League will exist and
wll) give good baseball during 1012.'
lie said, ?'und I hope for many years to
come. We can't keep the proposed
league out of Richmond, but wo can
do the next best thing, and light the
organization with its own weapon?
good baseball. Our players will be
protected, and we will vro along, bid
dine; lor public favor und public patron?
age upon u merit basis."
"How about the meeting of tho Vir?
ginia League next .Monday? Is there
anything new?" was asked.
"Just now there is nothing new. so
far as 1 know. Each of the clubs will
bo represented. Norfolk's now o\\Tie:
will bo on hand, and Charlie Shaffer
win also be. on hand. A vast amount ol
business Is to be transacted. With
everything settled, everybody can got
to work for a prosperous season. To
me It looks like a big year for tho Vir
glnln League and tor baseball through
out the country." That was all Mr.
Williams had to say.
Just as wub expected, the tole.gratn
received by The Times-Dispatch In an.
?wer to an Inquiry from Dr. McCrary.
the new owner of the Norfolk club, aus
aroused a world of comment through?
out the State. Dr. McCrary, when
asked by this paper as to whother or
not he would support Williams for
president, answered that he would vote
for the best interests of the Norfolk
club nnd tho Virginia League. It Is
presumed that he meant Just what he
said. Now some of the more ambttlouti
among the scribblers are trying to
show tho new magnate just what he
should consider the best Interests of
Norfolk and tho Virginia League. It
may make good copy, but Dr. McCrary
probably has his own ideas, nnd unless
all signs fall, the vote will be three
nnd three when the vote on a president
Is taken.
Over in the camp of the United States
League things were humming all day
long. Lawyers were busy In getting
the articles of Incorporation In shape
to be presented to tho Corporation
Commission. Latij in the day every?
thing was completed and an application
for a charter made. Tho new corpo?
ration will he known as the ""Baseball
Corporation o( Hlchmond." Its officers
will be Ernest C. Landgraf, president
and genera) manager; Leltoy E. Brown,
vice.president; Jacob G. Lazarus, sec?
retary and treasurer. These officers,
with Dnndrldgc Spotswood, of Peters- |
burg, and F. B. Snyder, form the board
of directors. The maximum capital
stock will be $50,000, divided Into
shares of J10 each. The charter ap?
pears liberal enough and allows ?he in
corporalora to conduct on nthletlc park
for all manner of games, including
baseball, an,! to charge admission to
such games.
Just as soon as the articles of incor?
poration were completed Secretary Laz?
arus got busy with contractors and
asked for bids for constructing tiie
plant. Every detail will bo looked af?
ter, according to the secretary. There
will be comfort"; for the patrons never
before enjoyed at a local ball park.
Parking facilities for automobiles will
be provided. Boxes will be installed
in tho grandstand, and n private box
will be ke.pt for the Governor nnd mem?
bers of the executive household. A box
will also be set aside for the Mayor.
In other words, everything will be
done In big league style.

Theodore Roosevelt and l.yman P. Ab?
bott, it was reported that In the course
of his speech Mr. Roosevelt said:
"While I am not a candidate for the
presidency, I will nevertheless accept
t:ic nomination If It Is offered to me." i
If Mr. Roosevelt made the declara?
tion attributed to him It was done, It
was suggested, for the sole purpose to
have it dribble out, In order to assure
Ills political friends that they could
continue their efforts for his nomi?
nation without fear that their labors

"blur," Sn>s Roosevelt.
The Herald says:
"I am the most misrepresented mm
in America," said Roosevelt.
It was said at the club that the re?
fusal to admit representatives of tnc
press was in compliance with Colone1
Roosevelt's wishes. When he left the
club he was asked If he had said in
his address lie was not a candidate,
but If nominated would run.
"Any mart who came down from the
dinner and quoted mc is a liar.'' ho
snapped, and hurried to his automo?
bile.
