THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28, 1012.
Fans of Coast League Strong
for Joe Vote Him Most
Who Is to get the Chalmers automo
bile for being the most valuable play
er In the Pacific coast league Is up to
a commission of official scorers but if
the matter were left to the fans
around the circuit. It seems a cinch
that Joe Berger the ex-Islander ban
toseer would soon have need for a
chauffuer. A contest to dtrmicc the
most valuable player in the league
from the standpoint of the baseball
fans is being conducted by a I-us An
seleg paper and Joe is loading the
content by over COO votes. His next
nearest rival is Johnny Kane, last
ar a Chicago Cub. Kane is with
Vernon. Berger being with Los An
geles. The third man In the race Is
none other than Walter Carlisle, also
an ex-Islander who was the sensation
of the Three-Eye league until his
graduation Into higher class ball.
H-nry Berry, owner of the Los An
Iteles club, has received word from
Charles Comiakey that he would ex
ercise his option on Joe Berber and
had posted the $2,500 required for the
deal. Berger will flniMh the fceaaon
with the An;Ha and will report to
Comirk;y next yiar for sprint; prac
tice. It la hardly probable that Ber
ger will be returned to the minors

President of American League
Holds Washington Pitcher
IS TOUCHED FOR A SINGLE
Secretary of National League Would
Allow Johnson to Continue
New York, Aug. 28. President
Johnson of the American league has
ruled that Pitcher Walter Johnson's
winning streak was broken in the sec
ond St. Louis-Washington game Mon
day. Johnson said, "the winning ran
was made by St. 1-ouis when Johnson
was In the box and the game will be
recorded as a defeat for him. Johnson
made a 11d pitch and a St. Louis
batsman hit him for a single that sent
home a deciding tally."
Secretary Heydler of the National
league states it as his opinion that
Johnson should not be charged with a
defeat. "The rule invariably followed
by me," said Heydler. "holds that a
pitcher is responsible for all runners
on bases when he retires .from the
game, and the first pitcher, therefore,
must be charged with the defeat. It's
an unfair proposition, under such con
ditions, to expect the second pitcher
to prevent runs."

AT THE EMPIRE.
As the Empire is to continue its
f. rst season's policy of changing bills
twice weekly, a new list of entertain
ers will be offered tomorrow to suc
ceed the live acts that are proving
eo popular the first days of the open
ing of the new season. The new bill,
beginning tomorrow, is to be as fol
lows: Black and McCone, acrobatic
comiques; Prince and Deerie, "The
College Boy and the Maid"; Harry M.
Morse & Co., in "Uncle Seth and the
Hoodoo"; Roxy P. LaRocca, harpist,
and the Chartres-Halliday company,
in "The Alaskan Honeymoon." This
act carries eight performers and all
its own scenic accessories. There will
be new pictures to open and close the
"FINE FEATHERS" AT CORT.
During the hot spell in Chicaco.
v hile all the playhouses are suffering
and all the people are rushing to the
parks and lake resorts, the Cort the
atre finds its capacity entirely too
small to accommodate the thousands
of playgoers who are eager to see and
enjoy "Fine Feathers," the tremendous
drama by Eugene Walter, which H. H.
Frazee is presenting at. that playhouse I
with an ail star cast. Not in the
memory of the present generation of
theatregoers has any play created such
a sensation as this drama by Eugene
Walter. Although much was expected
of the playwright who wrote "Paid In
Full." "The Easiest Way." "The Wolf,"
and other big hits, "Fine Feathers"
proves to be a greater play in many
respects than any of the author's pre
iou8 contributions to the American
stage. It is a page taken from real
life, with characters with whom you
and I are familiar, and served in a
manner that brings forth wonder, ap
plause and suspense from the audi
ences. Chicago critics who are usually
conservative in their reviews of a play,
in this case threw caution to the winds
and uuloosed a flood of superlatives
and adjectives which showed that the
play Impressed them as no other had
done for years. Aside from its dra
matic skill, its brilliant dialogue and
Its gripping situations, "Fine Feath
ers" appeals to the pjhllc because the
theme with which it deals is familiar
o everyone. There Is no home in
America that has not at one time or
another been confronted by the same
problem which Bob Reynolds and his
wife in the play have to face. The
increased cost and standard of living,
the feminine desire for pretty clothes,
the double standard of moralB which
aj plies in modern business, all these
are part of "Fine Feathers," and they
make it beyond a doubt the biggest
d-r of the century.

NO DEFENDER FOR CUP
American Aeroplane Club Spent $15,'

Chicago, Aug. 28. There may be no
American defender of the Gordon
Bennett world's championship aero
plane trophy. In spite of the ezpen
diture of $1V00 by a Chicago syndi
cate for a racing aeroplane designed
to travel 125 miles an hour. De Lloyd
Thompson, who has been trained In
the aero club of American Nieuport
monoplane as its pilot, has refused
to fly the racer on the ground that It
was "obviously" unsafe, ill-designed
and unable to fly for a single mile as
i nis unexpected situation arose
yesterday after aeronautical engin

HAS TRIED AND
The Non-Commissioned Officer In
Charge of the Recruiting Stations of
the Tri-Cities for the United States
Marine Corps Makes a Statement in
Favor of Plant Juice.
I take great pleasure In recommend
ing Plant Juice to anyone that is suf
fering from weak stomach, nervous
ness, and a general run-down constitu
tion, as it has been used in my own
family for the above mentioned causes
and did not fail to give the best of re
sults. Clarence Robinson.
Such statements as this, and those
of many others, published in this city,
have -a wide influence, for they come
from men and women of known judg
ment and Integrity. "Plant Juice" has
thousands of such advocates, and their
number Is growing rapidly each day in
American cities. Every man or woman
who is physically run down, who suffer
from indigestion, with water brash,
have coated tongues, gas, bloating af
ter meals, have heart palpitation and
ills arising from stomach trouble, or
who are listless, nervous, timid, over
wrought, with sallow complexion,
blotches and pimples, who suffer with
pains In the back and loins, have
twinges of rheumatism, sluggish biood
and like distressing ills arising from
kidney and liver, will find immediate
relief in Plant Juice. It will quickly
tone them up, put new life and energy
into them, revivify the fagged and de
ranged organs, and cure them. Every
bottle of Plant Juice is sold on the
money-back plan. See the demonstra
