SURPRISE TO FANS
NEW TORE, Feb. 19. Big league
managers come and go between
fading and blooming seasons. Scarcely
a year goes by that fails to see one or
more managerial air castles blown to
the four winds, and the winter sea
son of 1918-19 has run true to form.
Four of the 16 major league clubs
will enter the coming pennant races
with new pilots at their helms. The
Reds, Phillies, Cardinals and "White
Sox will launch their pennant cam
paigns next summer with strange
hands holding the reins.
Three of the four changes effected
this winter have caused much com
ment mostly unfavorable comment
among baseball observers. The cases
of Pat Mo ran, jack Hendricks and
Clarence Rowland have been argued
pro and con.
Rowland release by Charier
Comiskey was a surprise. Inas
much as the dapper little ex-Sox
leader traa thought to be in" -with,
the Old Roman. Apparently, to
the outsider Ron-land release
-was undeserved. lie piloted the
Tro rld's champions of 1917 for
Cemlskey, and he had a host of
friends In the majors, friends he
won for himself.
Bu t the Indicator swerved from :
Rowland to Hid Gleason. seasoned and
highly deserving veteran. And the fan
did not have to read between the lines
to see that Comiskev credited Gleason
with the success of his club in 1917
and the fact that it fell down last
season after Gleason had refnsed to
return as coach. Tet on the face of
things Rowland did not deserve his
Mornn Made Good.
Pat Moras, with one pennant and
two second place finishes at Philadel
phia in xour years, scarcely deserved
the treatment he got. Pat's trouble
started and ended with the sale of Al
exander and Killifer to the Cubs. But
Pat Is now the pilot of the Reds, suc
ceeding Christy Mathewson, who has
been more or less a xaiiure as a man
ager, and it's our guess that Jack
Coombs Is welcome to Mo ran s old
job as far as aloran can see it.
Unfair to Hendricks.
Jack Hendricks, now returned to In
dianapolis after a disastrous season
with the Cardinals, did not have a
fair trial as a major league manager.
The claim is made that Hendricks
lacks the ability to handle men: that
he does not savvy the method of get
ting the best out of big league prima
donnas. While his record in the
minors would tend to prove that he
knows how to handle players and de
velop them. It got him nothing at St.
Such U the life of the big league
managers. A Trarxn, hearty greet
ing and a slap on the back: one
year, walking papers, with their
attendant humiliation the next.

BUITISIt LOVE FOR SPORT
DIPF1CC.LT TO EI IA DI CATC
British devotees of soccer, boxing
and other sports came in for much
criticism during a certain period of
the war when the nation was thought
to be in danger. While many of the
leading boxers of England enlisted,
the game flourished more or less. It
was always thus, for British love of
sport Is misrhtv hard to eradicate.
History affords a noteworthy In
stance, lor when Napoleon was
threatening to invade England, the
sportsmen of the tight little island
refused to abandon their pastimes.

On the day of the solemn fast ap

they had to. and two aldermen accom

private pugilistic bouts and meet

matches. The laws against irreligion

had to be hedged about with secrecy.
One of these sessions of sporting men
was held in the upstairs rooms of the
"Jolly Brewers." a place of liquid re
freshment, then kept by Jem Belcher,
the former champion, who had been
forced to retire from the ring by the
loss of one of his eyes. Among the
boxing bags who thus did violence
to the king's wishes were many not
ables, ,who later distinguished them
selves in the field. The purpose of
the gathering was to make a match
between Hen Pearce, "the Game
Chicken." who then held the title, and
Silas Spray, a young coppersmith,
whose nueUietlc ability had attracted
the attention of some of the gentle
men present. The match was ar

authorities, however, and the battle

first of many notable battles fought
on that spot. Pearce bested the cop

Public Believes Fight Be
tween Fulton and Demp

Fred Fulton has been trying to
make himself out a miserable faker
of the prise ring. He is willing to
court the contempt of the public by
attempting to make it believe that
his knockout at the hands of Jack j
Dempsey at Harrison, N'. J.. last July!
was not on the level, with the hope
that by thus creating a doubt of
Dempsey's prowess and fitness aa an
opponent for Jess Willard he can cry
himself into the Colorado wonder's
place and meet willard on July 4.
The public will be quite ready to
believe that Fulton Is a big auitter.
But Fulton will find that it is also apt
to believe that Be is a liar as welL
Instead of crying himself Into
match with Willard, Fulton has made
himself a boxinsr outcast. The worst
of Fulton's contemptible confession is
that it seeks to reflect on tne honesty
of two other men, Mike Collins and
Jack K earns. Collins, who used to
manage Fulton and who is directly ac
cused in the fighter's statement of
instituting the attempted fake, and
Kearns, who manages Dempsey, have
denied Fulton's charges. There is lit

Viola met him at the door slim and sweet, dressed in white from head to

at Hank Hartbuxn. Her deep blue eyes were misty, for it was damp outside.
"Hank," she murmured, "Hank, I hate to tell yon, bat there is another!"
"Another what?" demanded Hank Hartbnra, seizing; her by the shoulders
and regarding her almost fiercely.
"Another gent which has came into my me," she replied simply. "And he

Hank Hartbnra turned away without a word, laughing mockingly.

Rosenstein Makes Race of His
Life; Suspicion That Sheriff Was
After Him; In El Paso At Finals
By ROY EMIK.
LEO ROSENSTEIN wts reading The Herald sport page at his home in
Lordsbarg. With a wild whoop he jumped from his chair, grabbed his
hat and coat, and made a dire for the door. "What's the matter, Leo?" in.
quired alarmed relatives, hut Leo was clear out to the garage steaming up
his flivver. "What's the matter?" he was asked as the machine began to
scratch gravel. "They hold it tonight," yelled Leo, as he whizzed out oa
the highway, "and I have to be there."
"They hold it tonight!"
Relatives and friends looked askance at each other as the flivver disap
peared down the road in a cloud of dust People along the way gasped as
Rosenstein in his mad scramble swerved and swished past everything on
the road. Two sheriffs telephoned back to see if the insane chaser was
wanted and for what Word was sent ahead for officers to be on the
lookout for a crazy man in an anto, but Rosey got by before they could
stop him, bumping along from bump to bump towards El Paso. Two speed
cops joined in the chase, but Leo never stopped nntil he polled up in front
of the Y.M.CA.
When the machine was finally found by officers searching for an insane
speedster, Rosenstein was gone. In fact, after renewing his "Y" member
ship, he had cuddled up to take a nap not far from where he was being
"All ready for the shotpnt!" rang out the announcement of A. L Holm,
physical director at the "Y," who was conducting the Heiathlon finals
Monday night. At the same time Leo Rosenstein, in gymnasium garb, en

ing. They had been praying for Rosenstein, the all round champion of
1917. "Whoop for Rosey!" filled the gym.
Nor was the confidence misplaced. Rosenstein went in and won, in
addition to making a new record between Lordsbnrg and El Paso, to get
here in time. He will remain in El Paso to compete in the other Hex finals.
Winter and Catarrh are companions
in evil. Catarrh is sweeping civiliza
tion from ose continent to another,
just because civilization does not heed
Nature's simple laws. Nature teBs us
what to do and we pay no heed.
Don't think lightly of Catarrh. Do
not make the mistake of beh'eving that
it is merely an aggravated bad cold.
True, this trouble usually starts with
what is apparently a cold in the head,
but beware of any cold that "hangs
on." You may as well realize at the
outset that Catarrh is a serious dis
ease and one that should not be trilled
with. In fact, in many instances it is
a forerunner of the most dreaded of
all diseases consumption.
Don't permit yourself to be de
ceived. Perhaps, like thousands of
others afflicted with catarrh, you are
about ready to believe that the disease
it incurable, and that you are doomed
to spend the remainder of your days
hawking and spitting, with no relief
in sight from inflamed and stopped
up air passages that make the days
miserable and the nights sleepless.
If you are in the grasp of Catarrh,
your experience should convince you
that the disease is beyond the reach
of sprays, douches, jellies, balms,
salves and other locally applied reme
When the air passages become so
stopped up that every breath you take I Adv.
is difficult, when the throat and nose
are so clogged up with offensive
mucus that you are constantly hawk
ing and spitting in an effort to clear
your nostrils, every effort you make
to get relief by the use of sprays and
douches is promptly followed by new
accumulations, so that no headway
whatever is made toward getting rid
of the disease.
Realize that the Catarrh comes
from a germ which infests the blood,
and that the disease cannot exist
when these germs are routed from
the blood. The rational and success
ful treatment, therefore, is one that
reaches the blood, and cleanses it of
every trace of impurity and rids it of
these tiny Catarrh germs. Of course,
no local remedies can can reach the
blood supply, and that is why Ca
tarrh k not cured by sprays and lo
tions. The one great blood remedy that
has made a wonderful record is S.
S. S.. which has been on sale by
drug stores everywhere for over halt
a century. If yoa would be rid of your
Catarrh, get a bottle of this great old
remedy today, which will give you
satisfactory results, as it has in so
many cases. Xou mil rind that you
are on the right treatment at last, as
