of the women of the city favored such

has become evident that the small

COLUMBUS. Ga., April S.-?-If the
Pittsburgh club Is to break Into the
first division this year the pitchers
must come through with the same
high class brand of pitching which
marked their work last year and Manager
Jim Callahan must strengthen his
Infield by 50 per cent, over what It
has shown up to this time.
Pittsburgh should have one of the
best pitching staffs in the league.
There Is Cooper, one of the best pitchers
in the league In 191B. and Cooper
looks like a repeater. Miller pitched
good ball last year as did JacobB

Mamaux is young?not yet 22?and
he Is likely to allow his youth to get
away with him.
Mamaux has no really bad habits
but he has temper and a temperament
which he has never tried hard to control
and he has a rather weak stomach.which
is not materially helped by
the practice he has of eating heavy
lunches at night.
If he will control his temper and
his appetite Mamaux will show the
National league something this year.
If ho doesn't he Is likely to lose as
many games as he wins.

the squad is increasing each evening,

going to and returning from Prunty
town. Ho didn't go there for reform

raising of beans, says the Freo Press
of that town. At that institution last,
year there were raised more soup
beans than by any two farmers in the
state. The total crop at the school
was more than six thousand bushels,
of, but they are a very valuablo food.
They constitute a substitute for meats,
and are usually to be had at prices
which are not burdensome. They are
also easily produced, and there ought
I to be a large crop of them raised in
this county. It is well to remember
thnt. while possessing the valuable
food properties of meats,.they are held
not to possess the qualities which encourage
the multiplication of disease
germs and the contracting of diseases
which follow meat consumption.

such a position. Read the following
from the Weston Independent of
last "week:
"Wm. S. Jackson, the popular cook
at the Camden hotel, gave his usual
anniversary reception on last Monday
night to a host of his gentlemen
friends. The evening was spent in
singing and chatting. At a late hour

a cold is a signal of physical weakness.
To treat a cold with weakening
physics, alcoholic syrups or drugged
pills, may smother the cold but they also
reduce the body powers still further and
invite more serious sickness.
