A TWIA-CITY TEAM
Pniifcn of a flub to be Filtered by
the t'o'ombian t:itie in the l.-I
, League -last it Jit's Meeting.
The preliminary mctting for the pur
dosc of or 'anizine a Twin City base ball
team to ecter the I.-I. league was held a
the llaro.'r hots; last evening. The
meeting was pretty well attended by
number of lovers of the game and con
siderable enthusiasm was manifested over
the prospects of the two cities getting a
joint team into the league. Aid. Charles
E vans was called to the chair and Charles
Hodges wa elected secretary. After the
object of the meeting had been explained
President M cKee. of the I -I. league was
called for a ad made a statement explain
ing lust what would be required of the
club and the probable expense of main
taining the same. It would first be neces
sary to deposit $500 with the Illinois
Trust compt.ny bank, of Chicago, a cer
tified check for $300 as guarantee that
the club woi.ld play out the season. This
money would belong to the
club so Ions as they continued to play
but in the event of their failing to play
out the season the money is forfeited to
the league, and is to be used in placing
another clu j. As regards the expense
of maintainii g a club Mr.,McKee stated
hat as the season is five and one-half
months, and the salary limit is $730, the
amount for salaries cannot in any case
xceed to (4.123. The other expense
of the club would be atnut as follows:
Railroad fan:, SG00; hotel bills, S700;
gent r J expenses including grounds, etc.,
$500; league lues, out of which the um
pires and secretary are paid, $300; sup
plies, etc , $300; making the total cost
of running the club $6,725 at the outside.
There will be 149 games scheduled, 70 at
home and 70 visiting games, so that it
will only mate it necessary to take in
06 50 at each game to cover expenses.
The guarantee to be paid each visiting
club is $40, bu: as the home club receives
the same when en route, it makes it
stand off. The matter of
whether sufficient base ball enthusiasm
cou'd be developed in the two towns to
et the necesssry stock subscribed, was
then discussed, acd as everyone present
was of the opit.ion that $3 300 worth of
stock could le raised without much
trouble,, it was decided to place it in the
ands of a committee of six from each
town who would meet at the Harrjer
house this ever ing and formulate some
plan for getting a team in the league.
The following are the committees ap
pointed: Frank Barnard. Myron Jordan,
John Cady. R j lert bwan, J. J. Johnson,
an Olbar Peal, of Moline; and John Ohl
weiler. Will R. Johnson, Eli Mosenfelder,
Lee Gilt, T. H. Thomas and Charles
Hodges, of Rock Island.
This morning the committee met at the
Harper and President McKee and Mr.
Stock well visitei Moline where they met
with much encoi rageiuent. A meeting is to
be held there this evening at 7 o'clock
after which the oommittec will join the
Rock Island meeting at the Harper. This
afternoon Messrs. McKee and Stockwell
and also Hugh Nichol of the Rockford
club, who accon panies Mr. McKee, have
been feeling the pulse on the subject, and
they feel quite sanguine or success. It is
f be hoped all interested in base ball will
met at the Har.ier tonight at 8 o'clock,
t at least discuss the matter, if not to
'Rih for base ball! And may the twin-
cities of Rock Island and Moline be in it

Few people have suffered more severely
from dyspepsia than Mr. E. A. McMahon, a
well known grocer of Staunton, V a. He says
" Before 1878 I was in excellent health, weigh
ing over 200 pounds. In that year an ailment
developed into acute dyspepsia, and soon I
was reduced to 162 pounds, suffering burning
sensations in the stomach,
palpitation ot the heart.
nausea, and indigestion
I could not sleep, lost all
heart in my work, had fits of melancholia, and
for days at a time I would have welcomed
death. I became morose, sullen and Irritable,
and for eight years life was a burden. 1 tried
many physicians and many remedies. One day
a workman employed by me suggested that
I take m mm a Hood's
sia. I did so, and before taking the whole of
a bottle I began to feel like a new man. The
terrible pains to which 1 had been subjected,
ceased, the palpitation of the heart subsided,
my stomach became easier, nausea disap
peared, and my entire svstera began to
tone up. With returning
strength came activity of
mind and body. Before
the fifth bottle was taken
I had regained my former weight and natural
condition. I am today well and I ascribe it
to taking Hood's Sarsaparilla."
N. B. If you decide to take nood's Sarsa
parilla do not be induced to buy any other.
