world's series In 190S-07-OS. MrGraw
hopes to achieve equal pennant h MTSfaH
this year, for he has two sira.ght aiu
easy successes behind hlrn and u team
which appears the class of th- Held.
Back In 1904 McGraw started a r. n
that threatened Clarke's record. Pen?
nants In 1904 and 1905 were | imple?
mented by a world's series from th
Athletics- the latter season. New York
started out in 190? top heavy favor?
ites In the National Leagu.-. But thai
season the mighty Chance, In his tlrs.
managerial trial with the famous
Cubs, reeled off 116 victories, the
greatest showing In professional base?
ball since it had become a national In?
stitution. Luck played into Chances
hands at the expense of McGraw. wh>
finished as low as fourth tn the only
time of his wonderful car.er. Mathew
son suffered an attack of diphtheria.
Bresnahan was seriously Injured by a
pitched ball; Mike Donlln's leg was
broken, and any other number of pro?
voking injuries and Illnesses devel?
oped to thwart the ambitions of Me?
li raw.
So the Giant leader stands to-day
wher.? he left off in 1905.
Only he is in much better position
to weather the combined attach of his
adversaries. Then his champion array
was comprised of a collection of fust
falling veterans; now he has the
youngest and speediest collection ol
athletes known to the game. Tuen he
had ta buck both Chance ant*. Clarke.
Now only the wonderful commander
of the Corsairs remains. Chance has
Kone over to the New York strong?
hold of the American League. Lav.ng j
to Johnny Evers, his successor in
Chicago, a team that is but the shadow
of the one-time Cub lnvinciblee.
Let us Investigate then, the worthy
focmen of McGraw Fred Clarke, the |
Kansas ranehman. He has completed
his thirteenth year at the helm of the
Pirate craft, and In the past cam?
paign showed far more consistent form
than even the Polo grounds champions
In thirt-en years Clarke amassed four
penuants, four second places and a
tie for another, three thirds, and one
I fourth. Clarke took charge of Pitts?
burgh In ltd! and finished second. The
next year he tore loose and ripped the I
organization all to pieces, returning
three straight winners. McGraw's
Star then began the ascendant, and the
great general of Smoke Town was
forced Into a back seat for a spell. In
the nine years since Pittsburgh and
Boston battled for the first world's
pennant under the prevailing organized
baseball government, Fred Clarke Irks
won only one pennant. That fell to j
him In 1909. when he showed his most :
suc**rssful season by winning 110 vic?
tories. That year also he beat De?
troit after a very hard fight of seven j
engagements for the world's cham?
pionship. But In all that time Fred ;
Clarke was never disgraced. Only
once did he finish as poorly as last
among the first four clubs.
When It appeared as if Fred Clarke
had designs upon organizing a pen?
nant "trust" among Hans Wagner and
Ills other pals, thnre arose a mighty
McGraw to check the presumption. And
when, in turn, McGraw began to aspire
along similar lines. Frank Chance
sprang into prominence. Thus came
Into being the "Great Three," which
proved an Ideal combination for the
parent major body. Each of the three
checkmated the others so that the bal?
ance of power kept wavering about.
Honors passed back and forth con?
stantly, as it were, with no one city
"bagging** the laurels, and all three?
New York, Chicago and Pittsburgh?
very much in the limelight at all
Of the three great National League
managers. Clarke, on account of his
!? ngth of service, must be awarded
the palm, though both McGraw and
Chance have abown better averages in
shorter experiences. In thirteen years
Clarke has won 1.201. and lost 732 I
games, for a grand average of .?21.
No "thT big manager has won l.oon
games. McGraw is closest, with 95$
victories for ten years. Opposed to
the winnings are 559 defeats, which
p-od-j'-?. a record of .S32. In seven
.'??.-.r; '"nance has won 714 and lost
but *5?, developing the wonderful i
average speed of .6*7. In other words,

Remarkable Action of a Rem?
edy That Drives Every
Speck of Poison From
There la a stronro. mysterious power
in a remarkable blood medicine that finds
its way through the circulation by what
Is known as Divine selection. The rem?
edy is Swift's Sure Specific, or S. S. S.
Science cannot explain Just why cer?
tain elements in the blood feed the bones.
Others nourish ths hair roots, and so on.
And It is this sams mysterious scticn of
S. S. S. that attacks all diseased spots,
drives away all germs, heals all sores
and supplants the activity of disease
gorms with tho powerful healing action
of leucocytes. Remarkable testimonials
have been written that prove beyond
question there is no blood disease but
what can be cured by S. S. S. And in
all those cases that were treated with
mercury, iodides, arsenic, copper and
other minerals with no permanent effect,
the most astonishing recoveries have
been made by S. S. S.
There is not a blood taint of any na.
ture that can remain !n a system forti?
fied by this most wonderful remedy, for
It la absolutely pure and contains only
those elements that the blood naturally
assimilates, and which the tissues grate?
fully accept. It agreea vt 'th the most
delicate stomach, even ir those cases
where the use of strong drugs bas so
weakened the digestive system thf.t med?
icine cannot be given. Get a $J 00 bottlo
of S. & S. at any drug store and thus ba
assured of a complete cure of any erup?
tive blood disease. If your case is pe?
culiar and you desire special advice writa

Lee, and from a neutral observer
it must be admitted that the j
White and Blue is represented by i
a stronger quintet than is Vir- j
Rlxey Better General.
Rlxey outgeneraled Miles on the first
ball up. tipping it to Stickley, and in a i
i short time both teams had fouled, and :
' both fouls were rung, making the score '
i 1 to 1. Then Virginia got away with
1 a goal by Gill, but the White and Blue
soon overcame the score, and the score '
' was 7 to 3. At one time the ?tarne was
Id to It. and McCain broke the tie by 1
a shot from the centre erf the cage. I
Then fcoth teams failed to score on a '
double foul. Hear got two in quick
succession, and the half ended 22 to 16. '
The Virginia five lost three goals
that were thrown after the official
whistle put the ball out of play. Stick
ley's first goal in the first half was
about the only thing of luck Virginia
had in the entire game, for luck seemed
to break away rather than for the
quintet. The ball went down the cage
and struck Francis, who was guarding
GUI, deflecting to Stickley.
llurke attempted to olock. but Stick?
ley ducked-and shot, the ball clear?
ing without a wobble.
In the second half llurke started the
scoring, and then the whistle saved ;
Virginia two points. The Lexington
team rung three goal3 rapidly, and
the Virginia rooters lost hope. There
Wars numbers of fouls, six personal j
ones, being called against Washington
aad Lee and five against Virginia, in
addition to other technical violations.
Three times double fouls were called.
Virginia's great handicap was tho
weight of the Washington and Lee
guards against the small men at for?
