a spitball that breaks something like

One can understand how O'Toole
could fan Bescher (a star hitter on

man on the team miss them after
reading what Walsh says he can do
to such hitters as Cobb, Crawford and
Jackson, the stars of the American
league. The White Sox twirler says:

"The spitter is a terror when it
works right. One day I had Detroit
in the nine-hole, and you know the
Tigers are some hitters. I think Cobb
and Crawford are two of the greatest
strikers the game ever produced. The
spitter had them all standing on their
heads. Neither Ty nor Sam could get
it out of the infield. I held them hit
less for eight rounds and had two
gents gone in the ninth when my
catcher muffed a foul tip. If he had
only held the leather, it would have
meant another out and given me a no
hit game against the Tigers. The muff
gave the batsman one more chance.

YOUR GRAY HAIRS
A Harmless Eemedy, Made from Gar
den Sage, Restores Color to Gray
A feeling of sadnes3 accompanies
the discovery of the first gray hairs
which unfortunately are looked upon
as aeralds of advancing age. Grey
hair, however handsome it maybe,
makes a person look old.,- We all
know the advantages of being young.
Aside from the good impression a
youthful appearance makes on others
simply knowing that you are "look
ing fit" gives one courage to under
take and accomplish things. So why
suffer the handicap of looking old on
account of gray hairs, when a simple
remedy will give your hair youthful
and color and beauty iu a few days'
Most people know that common
garden sage acts as a color restorer
and scalp tonic as well. Our grand
mothers used -a "Sage Tea" for keep
ing their hair dark, solft and luxur
iant. In Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur
Hair Remedy} we have an ideal pre
paration of Sage, combined with Sul
phur and other valuable remedies for
dandruff, itching scalo and thin,
weak hair that is split at the ends or
constantly coming out. A few appli
cations of this valuable remedy will
bring back the color, and in a short
time it will remove e^ery trace of
dandruff and greatly improve the
growth and appearance of the hair.
