President Scett Says he Muet be Master From Start. "An umpire who is not, at all times, master of the situât lou this season, will have his meal tickot and mileage out off." This statement was made by Presi dent Frank A. Scott, president of the loitou States Lorgne. •T will not stand for rowdyism in any form during the game," continued Mr. Scott, "and when a player is put out of a game l shall investigate and sue whether there ia any reason why ho should go back (or the next several days. "1/ we want to make baseball a suc cess We must oonduct It just as we do any other business. I want to see clean, snappy games' and shall do all I can to bring about that much desired result. I do not propose to rule with a rod of jron, and red hot, too, but 1 do In tend to enforce discipline on the field." President Ifoott said he would, on Sunday prior to the opening of the season, call a meeting of the managers at Jackson, where he wonld state his rules. He will instruct his umpires ac cordingly, and expects every one to observe the rales. If they do not he will want to know why, The league chieftain will have the hearty co-operation of every club in the league. The magnates feel that wrangling has hurt the attendance heretofore, and most of them believe that if the umpire knows ho will be backed np in his rulings, that sificer will, iD the main, do better work. The magnates cannot, they say, afford to baok their players up when they are in tho wrong, as it creates a tendency to cause trouble. Mr. Scott has not appointed his third umpire for the season, but is negotiating with a good man he knows will make a good one, if he can land him. He wants to get good men and believes that by standing by them, he will not have to any changes during the season.

In the "CADILLAC" you get all this and more. YAu get the right weight car, pow er enough to go anywhere any auto car will go regardless of price, heavy enough to hold it in the road for smooth running, a light vi-ght car is rough-riding and has not strength and weight enough to make it durable. Heavier cars cost too much for tires aud up-keep. Did you kuow it was possible to get from 18 to 20 miles on one gallon of gasoline by driving a CADILLAC Car? When you drive a CADILLAC a month you feel like it is an old friend, ready to do your work untiringly. Night and day it is always ready. As some enthusiastic mote ist has said relative to good au tomobiles "the driver's seat is the throne, th# steering wheel the sc*pter, miles ar# your minions, distance your slave." Good Automobiles annihilate distence, put the country in touch with the cities, puts friends living apart in touch with each other, creates desire to enjoy nature and sunshine, eonductitffe to heal th, makes life worth li\ ing, jewels the moments with joy, contributes pleasure to your friends, means pre |ress and is a good-road* builder. What's your need, you cannot afford to be withoih." There are a great many auto mobiles. Some are good, many makes are bad, making the wrong impression) among prospective buyers that the up-keep of an automob le is great. The CADILLAC has made the great record for low up-keep, and rej iirs on this car are comparative ly nothing the first and second season, Remember the CADILLAC cars have creat ed demand for themselves several times over what the factory can manufacture. Thousands of prospective purchasers waited in vain last season for delivery of CAD ILLAC cars, by placing their orders too late. We can deliver you a car at oriee. Will you be the one to wait in vain the season of 1911, by allowing this opportunity to pass you by. : : î : : : : : : : ■ VISIT OUR SHOW ROOMS FOR A DEMONSTRATION. Henderson & Baird Hardware Co.
