NEW PITCHER PUTS
NAME TO CONTRACT
R. X. Knox, a Fast Semi-Professional
from Mississippi, Will Try Out
With the Islanders.
A new pitcher, B. N. Knox, has
been added to the list of Islander
tryouts, his contract having been re
ceived by Manager Jack Tighe yes
terday afternoon. Knox is a husky
young athlete, 20 years old, and
weighing 184 pounds stripped. He
hails from Pontotoc, Miss. but at
present he is working out with Cum
berland university squad in Tennes
see. He says in his letter which ac
companies his contract that he will
be inXfirst class condition when re
porting time comes and that he has
fond hopes of winning a regular
place on the Islander pitching staff.
Knox made an excellent record
last year in semi-professional ball in
Mississippi. Out of 28 games in
which he worked in the box, he won
24 and in the four games he lost six
hits was the best the winners could
do, while one of them was a one-hit
game and another a three-hit game
Knox played for two years on the
university of Mississippi team. From
all accounts the' new man is a clean
young fellow who looks not upon "the
wine when it is' red and who keeps
himself in condition all the time.

the Wisconsin-Minnesota league cham

with the Islanders just before the
Three-Eye season opens. They are to
be in Rock Island May 2 and 3. There
are still some dates on the lslander3
preliminary schedule which ought to
be filled, and Manager Tighe is trying to
line up several teams. which ought to
be good drawing cards. He hopes to
have a schedule almost ' completely

Although the Rock Island club' did
not get a chance to voice its sentiments
in regard to the latest draft, of the
schedule now in the hands of President
A. R. Tearney, it Is very probable 'that
the vote would have been in favor of
adopting It just as it stands rather
than delaying matters longer by ask
ing for changes.
The schedule has been carefully ex
amined and it was found that, except
for one feature, it was just what was
wanted and that it was perfectly fair
in every respect The one objection to
it is that when the northern clubs are
playing among themselves, Davenport
and Rock Island are at home at the
same time, playing with. Dubuque and
Waterloo, respectively. While this
was not exactly desirable, a change
might not have been any more so, as It
would have greatly increased themile-
age of the two visiting teams, and on
the whole the plan was probably for

The reaction and after-effect of

the ailment the drug is intended
to cure. . .
When a child is slightly feverish,

bowels are not regular, and the little
one's breath is bad none of these
symptoms call for powerful (and
sometimes dangerous) drugs.

health of their children against such
attacks of sickness. At the first sign of
fever or cold headache or languidness
the home-made tea, of roots and herbs,
was given and when this simple remedy
had acted, the child was welL And there
was never any bad after-effect from the
family medicines of our forefathers.
