BIRMINGHAM WLL BE IN IT
And It Will Take a Hummer to
Beat Her.
BALL ASSURED NEXT SEASON
Al Buckenburger, Formerly of the Pittsburg
National League Club, Will Manage
the Birmingham Team.
The meeting of the Southern Associa
tion of Baseball Clubs adjourned about
noon Sunday after having completed the
business for which they met.
Among the business transacted Sun
day morning was the fixing of the guar
antee fund, fixing salaries and the ap
pointment of two or three committees.
The guarantee fund was fixed at $1000,
which amount each club must deposit
on or before the 1st day of March.
The salary limit was placed at $1000
per mon in.
Henry Powell of New Orleans anrl
George T. Stallings of Nashville were ap
pointed a committee to fill vacancies In
the circuit. They will do this at the
earliest possible moment. The circuit as
it now stands Is composed of only six
cities—Evansville. Nashville, Atlanta,
Montgomery, Mobile and New Orleans.
Evansville, on account of the great dis
tance necessary to travel to get there
from the other cities, will probably be
dropped. That will leave three vacan
cies.
The three cities which are most favor
ed by the present league are Birming
ham, Chattanooga and Knoxville, and to
these cities the three franchises will
likely go.
The president appointed a committee
of two, consisting of Col. B. E. Holt of
Montgomery and Dr. R. L. C. White of
Nashville, to correspond with minor
leagues with reference to the Inaugura
tion of a movement for the better pro
tection of minor leagues.
The president was Instructed to corre
spond with President Young of the Na
tional league with reference to securing
class A protection for clubs in the South
ern association. The association now has
class B protection.
Col. B. L. Holt of Montgomery, Dr. It.
E. C. White of Nashville and Henry
Powers of New Orleans were appointed
on a committee to draft a new constitu
tion and by-laws.
The election of officers for next year
was deferred until January tie. when a
meeting will be held in Chattanooga to
complete arrangements for the next sea
eon. . ,
Thanks of the association were extend
ed the Morris hotel for courtesies.
A1 Buckenbnrger Coming.
That Birmingham will be represented
In the association next season hardly ad
mits of doubt. And sffie will be repre
sented with one of the strongest teams
ever gotten together In the south, un
der the management of A1 Buokenburger,
whose reputation as a baseball manager
is second to none In the business. For
several years he managed the Pittsburg
team In the National league and his
team always stood well up among the
When the magnates of the Southern
association arrived here last Saturday
they opened communication with Buck
enburger with reference, to placing a
team In Birmingham, and he consented
to do so provided the guarantee could
be assured. This, It Is almost certain,
^Messrs.0 Solon Jacobs and Joe Frank
went before the meeting and submitted
n proposition, which was very favorably
received by the magnates, who are anx
ious to have a Birmingham team In the
association next season. Mr. \\ ayland
Trask,president of the Columbian Equip
ment company, is also Interested with
Mr. Jacobs and Mr. Frank in the move

liberally towards the club.

deal of Interest In the matter since it be

B'.ulents’ Recital—Methodists Greatly
Pleased With Their Pastor.
Marion, Dec. 21.—(Special Correspond
ence.)—Mrs. Clarence Crenshaw, who
tias been In bad health for some time
5>ast, is gradually sinking ami cannot
live through the day. Her husband
i»nd family have the sympathy of the
-entire community.
The recital by the students of the Jud
-•on on Friday night was greatly en
joyed by a large and appreciative audi
ence. Much was expected of the pupils
of Miss Stakeley, whose cultured voice
and charming manners have captivuted
and captured the people of Marion, and
this expectation was fully realized. The
manners of the young ladies while on the
stage and the music of their well trained
voices met with an enthusiastic recep
tion, and showed that Miss Stakeley not
only could sing divinely herself, but had
that other and greater power of teaching
others how to sing. The recitations of
the pupils of Miss Klrtley and the organ
nnd piano recitals of the pupils of Mrs.
King and Professor Vredenburg were up
to the usual high standard of the Jud
son’s exhibitions. At the conclusion of
- the regular programme for the evening
Miss Stakeley, by special request, sang a
number of old fashioned melodies, which
carried the house by storm and which
made your correspondent her humble and
mlmlrlng slave the balance of his days.
Her voice is magnificent In Its scope,
power and flexibility and is the perfection
of natural strength and sweetness com
bined with intelligent nnd artistic cul
tivation. The Judson is indeed to be
congratulated upon having In Its fac
ulty one of the finest vocalists in the
south.
The students of the Marlon Military In
stitute have all gone to their homes for
the Christmas holidays.
Miss Miller of Owensboro, Ky., and
Cadet Patrick of Auburn college are vis
iting the family of Rev. R. G. Patrick.
The members of the Methodist c-hurch
are greatly pleased that Itev. Mr. Spain
has been sent to this place.
Nothing is being talked of but war
with England, but we have yet to hear
of the first man who wanted to go to the
front.

HER ENTRANCE

an extremely critical period in tvery girl’s
life. At this time she needs advice, and,
what’s more—help of the right sort. If she
puts her faith in Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Pre
scription it can bring only good results.
It’s a medicine that’s made especially to
build up women's strength and cure wo
men’s ailments—an invigorating, restora

nervine ; purely vegetable, non-alcoholic,
and perfectly harmless. For all the func
tional derangements, painful disorders, and
chronic weaknesses that afflict womankind,
the “Favorite Prescription ” is specific.
