The demands in all parts of this country, and in several foreign coun ties, for well-trained men of our race in the direction of scientific and practical agriculture are so great that this institution is willing to offer exceptional advantages to young men who wish to come here and take either a regular or post-graduate course in agriculture. We cannot begin to supply the demands that come to us for trained men in the direction of agriculture. The posi tions for which these trained men are wanted are those in almost every case which pay high salaries. We wish to get hoid of men who have received as far as possible, a good education before coming here, and are ready to enter on a tho rough course in agriculture. Per sons, however, can pursue the literary studies at Tuskegee, while taking the course in agriculture. For futher information address, Bookek T. Washington, Principal, Tuskegee Intitute, , Alabama.

At League Park,, Springfield vs. Cedar Rapids Game called at 3:C0 P. M. Peoria Giants Defeated. The Peoria Giants came to this city last Sunday with a hoot and a roar, and from the appearance of things, we thought they would wipe up the earth with the Cardinals. It looked bad for Springfield at the start as a big husky fellow who re sembled Ike Ford, the first giant at bat, knocked out a hot one to deep center and never stopped running until he landed on the second sack where he crowed like a big old hackle rooster. The next giant up dupli cated the trick. Four runs were made in this innining by the giants and the Cardinals scored two in their half. The Peoria bunch never got but three men across home plate after that. The real fun came in Springfield’s half of the fifth when with three men on base, Danfourth, the Cardinals lengthy pitcher, rap ped a hot one toward “Big Boys’” corner for two bases thus letting in three runs. The Cardinals made eight runs in this inning and when the final scores were counted after the game, it was found that the Cardinals had piled up twenty runs while the Giants were making seven. Peoria tried out three pitchers, but none seemed to be effective. The team from Alton come to morrow and a good game is expect ed. About 375 people enjoyed the game last Sunday.
