Jimmy Burke, pilot of the Browns, picks the White Sox to win the world's series. Here's what he says: "There Is no one who can tell Just how good the White Sox are. Just when everybody figures them licked they bob up and pull something that startles the boys. They have all the physical elements of the champion, and they have the brains to make the nhyslnue amount to something. In hitting, defense, base stealing, hit and run piaying tney can put tne work over, and that It what the fans de mand. " , 'The Sox have some of the great est players In the world on their ball club. Eddie Collins, I believe, never had a superior. Weaver ranks with the great third baseman, and the oth ers are men of exceptional ability. 1 know of no better center fielder In the game than Happy Felsch. That fellow can do a lot of things that no one ever expects from him. He Is a ball hawk and has a great arm. "Chief Interest in the team centers around the pitching staff, and com parisons are made between that bunch and Reuther, Eller, Ring and Sallee. Eddie Clcotte, or course, needs no Introduction. He Is one of the stars of the game. He has some thing that baffles the opposition, and his fame is so well established that even on his off days he gets by. That Is often the case In baseball. "Claude Williams is another great pitcher, and then two of the other hurlers who are not getting the credit they deserve are Kerr and Bill James. I confidently believe that both these men will win ball games If they get the chance to pitcn. K.err is a iigm er, born and bred. He can curve a glove to the jaw as readily as 'he can curve a ball to the plate, and he has all sorts of courage. " believe that the White Sox will win the series because they have hit ting power, they have speed on the bases, and thev have a flexibility of power and a recuperatlbe ability that Is amazing. No bad break is going to worry that bunch; they have too much class to be worried by such Incidents as errors and lucky skipB. "I am not attempting to belittle the Reds. They nave estamisnea mem hpIvph njt chnmnions of the National league and they must have' a certain amount of power to accomplish that feat. No champion ever rose through luck alone. To be candid, I have not seen enough or them to iorm a real opinion, based upon careful comparison. T hv nwn the White Sox. however. and I can say that any team that leads them over the wire is considerable team.' - FORMER POPBOY GETS TRIAL WITH PIRATE8. Charlie Grimm, who has been pur chased by the Pirates from the Lit tle Rock club of the Southern asso ciation, has had a rapid rise In baseball. Three years ago he was a peanut and soda-pop vender In the Cardinals' par and played semi pro ball when the Cards were away from home. Last year he applied to Jack Hendricks, then manager of the Cardinals, for a tryout, and Jack, granting -It, liked the young ster's looks so well he kept him around for a time, finally turning him ovr to Little Rock for further seasoning. Grimm played a fine brand of ball In the Southern asso ciation this year and the Pirate scouts believe he will show to bet ter advantage at the Initial sack than George Whltted. Whltted Is at present covering first base for the Smoky City club, and none will be' more pleased than he If Grimm, makes good. How-many people exchange food for thought. COMPANY JIMMY BURKE . PICKS WHITE SOX Watch for Red Faber to Be Dark Horse In Coming World's Series Sorrel-Topped. Right-Hander of White Sox Now Under Cover and Is Now Being Groomed by Kid Gleason. BY BOB PIQUE, OW many pitchers have the Chicago WUte Sox to use against the Cincinnati Rede in the" approaching world's series? The wise ones will an swer, "three. Clcotte, Wil Hams and Kerr." Ilut there Is another one who is vet t ue accounted tor. Hea Kaber, a night-hahden, Is his name. Haven't heard muen or Red lately, but when the Reds take the field against the Chlcagoan next month Red is going to come out of his hiding place and take a fling at the Redlegs. Red, It will be remembered, was the big noise In the world's series of 1917, when the White Sox triumphed over the New York Giants. Red won three games by way of earning his share of world's series spoils. Since that time, however, Faber has not shown anything much as a pltche. Last season found Kaber In the world war, he joining early after the season started. After hslng In the service and following the signing of the armistice, Red returned to the White Sox and has been with them all this season. Up to date he has won 11 games and lost nine, in ad dition to finishing up several contests that were lost. Hasn't Pitched Lately. Manager Kid Oleason, of the White Sox, hasn't used Faber here of late. The Sox pilot., remembering the great work that Red did In the big clash of 1917, Is working on him now, ironing out the kinks and grooming him for the big attack upon the Reds. Since the se ries has been extended to nine games. Manager Gleason realises that he will have to have more than three nitchers to cope with the Redleg Outfit, so he Is getting Faber ready to do his part in etonnlng the Cincinnattans. Faber pitched invincible ball against the Giants In 1917 in the big battles and showed that when It came to pitching for a big money purse he had all that any pitcher should have, with a little bit added. He was the biggest hero of the series beyond question, for ii was nis great mouna work that brought the world's title to Chicago. Manager Gleason has Eddie Clcotte and Claude Williams groomed for the nrsi two games, witn iuck Kerr neid in reserve. Clcotte is a right-hander, while Williams and Kerr are portslders. Another good right-hander la needed by Gleason, and with four good pitchers two right-handers and two or the off side variety the White Sox will have no rears at entering tne big series against the Reds. Pat Moran, of Cln- White Sox Will Have Schalk, With Rariden and Wingo reforming for Oincy. CINCINNATI, Q. Sept. 24. One catcher will do all the work for the White Sox In the big series, but two maskmen will perorm for Cincinnati. Pat Moran says that the alternation of Wingo and Rariden, In vogue all the season, with great results, will not be changed for the series. Wingo will work whenever the White Sox have a right hand pitcher on the hill, Rairden will be there whenever a left-hander tries his curves. The two eatchers have played In almost the same number of games and both have done splendid work all summer. Wingo has the high est batting average, but Ralrden's raps have been of the timely pattern. Both have thrown well and both are mar vels in chasing foul flies. Even to the last, the Reds made a poor defense against the double Bteal and the squeeze play. Dosens of runs were Bcored against them on these two tricks, and they have lost many of their games through one or the other of these plays in the ninth Inning. Pat Moran Is hoping to find an effective way of blocking the squeeze and double steal, even this late In "the year, and is making Wingo, Rariden, Rath and Kopf go through some 'special prac tice every day. John Kllng, who Is an extremely good friend to Pat Moran and- Is coming on for the series, will be asked to come out, if he arrives early, and show the Reds .the way he used to stop the double steal. Never was there another catcher who could head off and confute that play as Kllng was wont to do, and John's ad vice may mean something In the time of need. . ...":.,, 1 M. G. 0. WINS THIRTEEN Murphy, (leers and Cox won 1S of the 18 races contested at Poughkeepsle recently. They represent the strongest "money getting combination" that has ever appeared on the trotting turf and no one can jiull the Sherman act on them as the rivalry between the "big three" Is very keen. In 1918 Cox was back among the lame duck, but- his four kings Mlgnola. v MoQreror the Great, Frank Dewey and Lu Princeton will bring home tne bacon to Dover. Murphy's stable la like the A. E. F.

Heir Reaper has been lame while Uoldie T,odd Is the bent pacer that has been In Geers' stable since he brought out Direct Hal.

All Four Are Stars. Faber, Clcotte, Williams and Kerr are all up In the front rank of Amerl. can league pitchers. Clcotte leads the league by a wide margin, having hung up a total of 2S games won and 7 lost, while Williams has won 23 contests and lost 9 to show for this season's work. Kerr has not worked in as many games as Clcotte and Williams, but has won more than two-thirds of his games and iay be counted on as a strong factor rhen the time comes for him to go In either to start a game or as a reliof pitcher. Kaber Is at present under cover by Manager Gleason. He hasn't been con Pat Moran To Fielder In Duncan, Who Was Bought for Club, Has Turned Out BY OSCAR C, BEICHOW. CHICAGO, Sept"2t.-!-Manager Pat Moran is going to lead the Cincinnati Reds into the world's series next month with a raw recruit, a minor leaguer who has hardly had time to earn his spurs, playing left field. It seldom has happened that a player fresh from the bushes, and In the league slightly over a month, Is ex pected to play a significant part in the championship event. Experienced play ers are wanted by the pilots, but when circumstances force them to use a re cruit they have no hesitancy In doing so. This Is Moran's dilemma before going Into the title event. Moran has not had what one might term a real first-class left fielder all the season. He started out with Sherwood Magee, a veteran, slow of foot, a fair thrower and hitter, playing that partic ular garden. Magee being an expe rienced outfielder took care of all the drives and high flies In a manner that made many youngsters look upon hi m with envy. Suddenly he was taken sick with a severe case of Influenza and was confined to his bed for several weeks. When he got up he was so weak he was unable to play and has not regained his normal condition. Therefore Moran cannot count on his taking an active part in the world's scries, tries to Get Outfielder. When Magee was taken sick Moran wired every club In the league for an outfielder, but none was forthcoming. Not a 'club w;,s willing to help hliu because It was known he had a strong team and that It was hard enough to beat It without giving him some help. Moran dickered for Les Mann and Dode Paskert, of the Cubs, but was unable to secure them. He even tried to get Mann from the Boston Braves after the Cubs traded him to Stalllngs with Charlie Pick for Charlie Hersog, but the Braves demanded too much in re turn and the deal was never consum mated. There was nothing left for Manager Moran to do but to select a man from his team to fill Magee's shoes. He did not have an over-ahundance of mate rial and had to select a pitcher, Rube Bressler, to play left field. Bressler, It must be said, did capable work In the field and also at the plate, but Moran could not keep him there because he needed him to bolster up his pitching staff, which gave signs of weakening shortly after the middle of the season, so he convinced President Herrmann Huge Crowd at Kilbane Bout Broke All Records NEW YORK. Sent. 24 The attend ance at the "Teddy" Edwards boxing show promoted by Dave Drlscn! at the Jersey City Baseball park last Tuesday night, when 46,800 persons were check ed off as present, set a new world's record for attendance at a boxing match. Previous to last Tuesday the record was held bv the Ocean A. C, which held the Mike Oihbons-Packy McFar land bout at Brighton beach on Sept. 11, 191S. when a total paid admission of 28.092 wss accounted for, with 1,247 complimentary tickets bringing up the total to 27,339. The paid attendance st'the Jeffrlee-Johnson , championship battle at Reno on July 4, 1910, was 15.768, with a gross attendance of con siderably less than 20.000. The attend ance at the Wlllard-Dempsey bout at Toledo, on July . 4, of this year was about 20.000. No Accidents. Three of the outstanding features of the bout at Jersey City were that there were no accident or casualties, no ar rests were necessary, every seat holder got the seat his ticket called for and the crowd was the most orderly and well-behaved that ever attended a box ing match In this country. Another remarkable thing about It was that It was all accomplished In a little less than three weeks. Dave Drlscoll, the man who did the promoting and, with Mayor Frank Hague, had charge of the arrangements for the Hudson County Democratic committee, which backed the show, Is sued a statement recently revealing the record-breaking affair. Forced to Hustle. "When Mayor Frank Hague first ap proached me with the suggestion of holding the Burna-KUbane bout," said Drtscol, "he named a date for the match that waa less than three week away, I Immediately want after JU1- sidered by those who have been doping out the Reds' chances to beat the Sox out of the flag. Kaber has had a com paratively poor year no far and the wise ones have decided that he Is all through. But watch him In the coining series. Kaber will pitch the swoono or third game against the Rods, more than likely the third. Clcotte will prob ably pitch the first, Williams the sec ond, Faber the third und Kerr the fourth. Kaber, while a bear of a pitcher In the 1917 world's sorlea, carved for him self a niche in the hall of bone during the big classic. He joined John An dersons club, and stole a base with the bag already occupied. However, the bone play was forgotten when he turned in such an excellent pitching card. Watch Kaber In the 1919 world's se ries. He Is certain to be the dark horse of the big clah.

Scout McCann was sent out to get a right-handed hitting outfielder, one who had the ability to slam the ball with power and who alao knew how to field, McCann was not asked to consider money, for the Reds were willing to pay nny price to get the right man, or one who had some ability. The minor leagues were smured thoroughly and two men were unearthed. One was Charley Pee, of Rochester, and the oth er was Pat Duncan, of Birmingham. Which one to select was a toss-up, hut after learning of the excellent qualifi cations Herrmann decided to purchase both to protect the club, figuring: that If one did not make good the other would. Herrmann was not. mistaken In his judgment and for paying $10,000 for See and $5,000 for Duncan. Duncan, the cheaper man, made good and Is the one who will play left field for the Reds In the world's series. He has showi Manager Moran so much stuff In every department of the game that he seems to be a fixture In the left field, lie Is only a rscrult, but hep taken to his task with so much enthusiasm that he has advanced with rapidity and has proved an apt pupil under Moran. Duncan has been seen In action heie and the fielding he did against the Cuba Impi eased the local fans and convinced them that the Rdi will no be weak ln left field unless the youngster Is bothered with etnge fright, but It Ih not expected that he will be judging from the way he has taken up the major league work. Duncan Proves to Be Star. In the Inst series the Reds played with the Cubs Duncan was not easily fooled at the plate and fanned only once In the four games. He got two hlts-'bff Kneed Martin, two bases on halla off Vaurhn. a single off Carter and one off Hendrlx. Alexander was the onlv one he failed to nit sateiy, nui even tlie Cub star did not strike him out. ., The youngster has confidence In his own ability and crashes into the hall with tremendous power. Ho does not pull away at the plate and seems to have the knack of flitting to right field If necessary. It is probable that Dun can will be the star of the series. It has happened that an unknown athlete upset the dope with his exceptional work and Moran's recruit seems to have the nerve to ahlne. bane st Cleveland, and made two flying trips back and forth between Jersey City and Cleveland before the match was clinched. It was necessary to work at top speed. Preliminaries had to he matched, arranged and booked, the ball park put In condition, the rlna; and boxes built, camp chairs hired and, say. I had to gA to three different states to get enough camp chair. "When the announcement waa mnde that the total attendance was 48.810 persons. It was received with amase- ment and disbelief. Yet that I the exact number that attended. Not only that, hut when you take Into considers. tlon the fact that approximately 20 000 more could see Into the ring from the Hudson Countv boulevard, overlooking the park, It brings up the total number or persons who actually saw Johnny Kilbane knock out Frankle Burns to more than 60.000 persons.

SAYS JOHNSON HAD THE PAIS OF Cannot Be Rubbed Away With Liniments. You who are afflicted with this rriost painful disease who know from experience just liow excruciating its panp;s are get this fact fixed firmly in your mind, and it will aid you in finding a way to a com plete . recovery. Rheumatism cannot be rubbed away with liniments, its pains and pangs cannot, be wiped out as if by magic. A disease that is so full of torture and finally renders its victims so helpless, is a deep-seated one; it is not on the surface, hence it cannot be reached by external, sur face remedies. This is no the ory,', for your own experience doubtless has shown you that you can never expect to rid yourself of the disease in this way. For the chances are that you, like thousands of other sufferers, have been misled in to the hope that, liniments, lo tions and other applications would cure your rheumatism. But what has been your ex perience? The pains possibly have been lessened for the time being, but have they not promptly returned, often with increased severity, and are you really any nearer a cure than before? You certainly are not, and you never will be as long as you rely upon treatment that at best is merely a make shift. See what Mr. J. L. Agnew. of Mt. Vernon, Ohio, says of what S. S. S. did for his rheu matism : "For ten years I ' was badly afflicted with Rheumatism, the ptlns In my knees, legs and ankle being almost unbearable. I tried various remedies with out results, until a physician ad vised me to use S. S. S., stating that the disease was In the blood. After taking a few bot tles the pln and soreness were greatly lessened. I continued thl medicine until all pain, soreness and Inflammation were gone, and I wa completely cured." J. J. AONEW. $0$ E. Gambler Street. ML Vernon, Ohio. This is . a typical case, and everyone who has had the ALEXA STIRLING II TITLE NEXT WEEK Women's Golf Tournament to Be Staged Over Shawnee Links: Southerner Won Her Laurels Three Years Ago It may h that when the women's championship golf tournament I held oxer the Shawnee Country club links, the week of Se,,t. 29. Miss Alexa Stir Ing will be able to accomplish what harles Rvana, Jr.. failed to do. Both' of these golfers held the championship titles over the war period, Mlsa Stirling winning at Belmont Spring three years i.',1. Kvns capturing the open at Mlnlkahtla and the amateur at Merlon the same season. Kven after the Chicago golfer failed to retain his open title at Braebiirn early In June there were those who , Insisted that he -would again show the way in the aaiateur classic at Oak niont, but Frami Oulmet proved too great an obstacle. , There are a great many who believe that the Shawnee meeting will produoa a new champion, although there Is na particular reason for this assertion ex ceptlng thst the national amateur at Pittsburgh was full of onsets owing to the many new players entering the field. The women's tournament will also have new p'ayers who have come to the front during the past few years, and It la difficult to get a line on their game. Hven under ordinary circumstances, one guess Is as good as another until the contest has narrowed down to the closing time. When It Is considered that It la three vears since Miss Stlrltng woni the chamnlonship and that aince that time she has taken part In few tourna ments, It Is Impossible to predict just ' what she I capnble of. It Is reason able to aasume that the Atlanta girl la playing as well as ever, and ther Is no doubt that she will be on hand to defend her title. Among the previous champions wh will put In an appearance at Shawnee are Mrs. Clarencj H. Vanderheck, win ner In 1915, and Mi. H. Arnold Jack son, tltleholder in 1914. Both of thene women are said to be on their game, while Miss Marlon Holllns and Mrs. W. A. Gavin, champion and runner up respectively in the recent metro ,'iolltnn event at Areola, have been prao ticlng aalduously at Shawnee during ' the past few weeks. Mrs. Oavln play the course well and her score of 87, made In competition with Miss Holllns, Is the best heard of lately. Prior to that she had an 89, and on both occasions Miss Holllns was only a stroke or two wore. It Is not thought that any of the Memphis flock will be listed among the starters. At the same time thev may exercise the female prerogative and kick In at the last moment. Par for the Shawnee circuit l 73, 37 out and 36 home, but the woman ' fortunate enough to get around In bet ter than 90 will have every reason to feel proud. If (he present distance re mains unchanged It will mean a plsv Ing length of 6,471 yards. Besides the match round each day, special attrac tions hav been aclieduled for everv afternoon. The Shawnee Country club will present the awards for these events. EDUCATION FALLING OFF. WASHINGTON, Sept. S4.-Kducatlon in Mexico seem to be going backward Instead of forward on the hasia of re ports received here through official channels. The bureau of education In the federal district of Mexico ha an nounced the closing of 2i!4 school be irauae of a shortage of funds. It la estl mated 160,000 children hav been de prived thereby of educational facili ties slightest experience with rheu matism will continue to suffer ' and grow worse until they are f- n- J imaiiy practically iicipiess, un less they realize that the dis ease must be combated at its source. Rheumatism is often a diseased condition of the blood, the disease attacks the body through the blood, hence the system can be rid of its pains only after the blood has been cleansed of the germs of the . disease. Lotions, liniments and oint ments, applied to the surface may in some cases deaden the pain for the time being, but until you attack the disease at its foundation, you are making no progress toward a curt, and you are permitting the trouble to get a firmer hold on your system every day. This is one reason why Rheumatism is usually a permanent disease, staying with its victims year after year. Getting rid of the disease is merely a matter of treating it intelligently. Knowing that it cannot be cured by external applications, it is folly to rely upon such treatment. S. S. S. is without questi the most thorough blood medi cine ever made, and it cleanses the blood of every impurity and disease germ. That is why it Bcldom fails to give satisfac tory results in even the sever est cases of Rheumatism. Be ing purely vegetable without a particle of mineral or chemical in its composition, it works by eliminating and forcing out of the blood all impurities, acting as a tonic to the entire system at the same time. It has been in use for more than fifty years and thousands of sufferers from rheumatism give it un stinted praise.
