TIIR OMATTX DAILY HEE: SUNDAY. FEHRUARY 14. 1D04.
IS Ik SPORTING GOSSIP OF THE WEEK The bcglnnlns; cf the end for the Infinite i mrlnty of sportln; event confined almost 1 exclusively to th' winter months may fairly and truthfully re said to lx in slKht. But an thn athlete and the. have-beeri and tha wotildhc and the Just plain partici pants in thfe who chine with more or less ffularnce wh le they ran have the beauti ful snow for a background, befrln to show the sign of tear and wear that constant fclKli pressure Inevitably brlnfrs, "then and not till then" do the boys and girls yes. .'Indeed, the girls who love the good old :. ummerllrre and Its sports begln to do business at the old stand. Which Is the J larger clase, those who love the trees and their hrrezes, or those who prefer the 4 nows with their sneezes, Is a matter of :- conjecture. Both have their adherents, and both clnsses get much out of life. But there Is another division larger than either, made tip of thoee who keep In the game, with more or less vim, the year around, so that while amusing: and health-giving exercises vary as do the seasons themselves, like Tennyson's brook, they keep on forever. Bowling and hllllnrds. scrapping and skat ing, cards and coasting, will, generally peaking, soon Join hands and retire languidly to the tall grass, doomed for a time to be superseded In popular favor. And then comes base ball ah, base ball and tennis and golf and a drvien other thing at one or the other of whose shrines the great American public la content to fall down and worship, either as actor or on looker. The past season In Omaha has been an exceptionally profitable and enjoyable one from the standpoint of the sporting and athletic fraternity. While no phenomenal i w:uniB ijrivv pren mane in any particular line, much good work hss been done, par ticularly on the alleys, and this may truth fully be said of nil other departments cf ports and athletics, as exemplified In this town. And that Is not all, for at present It appears to thoee who are able to read the tgns of the times In this particular direc tion that the coming spring and summer will witness seme of the best amateur work with golf sticks and bat, racket and gun that Omaha has ever known. The base ball fan la only waiting; the promise of spring hns set him to talking at a great rate and the burden of his chat has to do entirely with what Is coming. Other stance far below what each had made In the Saturday afternoon shoots, when no visitor were present and no prises at stake. For example, the beit Billy Town send could do In his shcotoff for the Iirkey cup was twenty-two birds out of a possible twenty-five, while at the Kansas City shoot he got forty-nine kills out of fifty. Lnomls, too, scored twenty-two birds, but at the Saturday shoots at ten birds he has mado a straight kill for the last four weeks. The star ahoot of the mid-winter season heretofore has been that of the Sunny South club at Brenham. Tex. This was held In January, this year; and there were barely fifty contestants and seven of these were professional sharps from the north who weren't allowed to shoot In the main events. There were 100 entries In the Omaha tournament. The local club now numbers forty-two members, and with such material aa Loomls, Montmorency, Town send and half a doxen others cannot fail to be heard from to good purpose later. There can be little doubt that the coming season will see a great Increase in the golf enthusiasm In this city, notwithstanding the general popularity of the game last year. The course of the Omaha Field club has been put In such shape aa to make It one of the beat possible, aa Is shown by a new blue print drawing of It made by Architect Harry Lavrje and put on exhibi tion In the Townaend Gun company'a store. Many members of the club have called to see It, as well aa many not members who are devotees of the game. The Field club a 120 acres of ground makes what Is unques tionably one of the best course In this country. Its nearness to the city and every thing else considered. It Is doubtful, too. If another course could he found where It was not necessary to make artificial hazards. The rearrangement of the grounds this winter brings the player at the ninth ar.J eighteenth holes back to the clubhouse. Instead of leaving him or her a nille or more away from It, aa waa the case for merly. That thlsone thing will' be appre ciated, especially by tho women players. goes without saying. Then, again, the monotony of the west forty acres is broken by changing the course so that the holes run parallel with and at right angles to the creek. Instead of crossing it aa for merly. Another advantage of this Is that aeasona are forgotten In the prospect forjfewer bang wln probably find watery the summer and each old war horse Is as again flap his lungs, across the diamond. -.Omaha's loyal supporters have again choked down their disappointment at not being able to get Into a bigger league, and will do their level best to enjoy the article of ball furnished by the 'Wetsern league this summer. Papa Bill's line-up looks rood ao far aa It goes and they hope to see a team that wlll move as It should. Bill doesn't rlalm that he has a bunch of world belters, but he doea expect that the men he will present will put up a game cf ball that will please the public. Out at Denver a number of the strong playera have taken advantage of the opportunity .afforded and have Jumped to the roast. Among these are Tom Petehanty. Burt Jones, Emll Frisk and Aleck Whltridge. The management announces that all can be spared but Pele banty, who leaves a gap at second base that will be hard to fill. Waldron haa balked on the transfer from Kansas City to Denver and iAida la trying to get rid of the Western league reservation. It Is very apparent that Mr. Tebeau Is to have his troubles In the mountain town before the season opens. The Sioux City lineup has tmt been given out yet, but the ownera there have the promise Of assistance In making UP t ttm. It oortalnty should be that way, for Sioux City Is a cracking good ball town and ought to have on of the fastest team In the league. The' members and friends of the Omaha Gun club certainly have every reasonable excuse for being proud of the Interstate shoot held on thrir ground the first of the month. It waa one of the best and most largely attended of any like affair ever held, not only In this city, but In the en tire middle west, and the unanimity of sat isfaction as expressed by the shooter who were In attendance waa as unusual as It was pleasing to all concerned. And yet while the two Omaha tea ma got Inside the money In the most important event of the tournament, the Individual score of the club's crack shots were In nearly every In- grave. It Is estimated that 250 players can now use the course at one time. The club house ' is also to be Improved as to the kitchen and dining room. It Is a matter of much regret to all the members that W. K. Cundlff, who waa one of the charter members, and. Incidentally, la one of the best players. Is soon to withdraw from the organization and leave the city. The mem bershlp, which la limited to EO0, now num ber something over 490. three new mem ber having been taken In at the last meet ing and three more applications being under consideration. At the last meeting of the club the membership fee w doubled, being made $50 In the place of $25. About as little Is said or known of the "Squash club" of this city aa would be the rase if It were a branch of the Mafia. It Isn't, really, you know, anything of the kind, but Just a club organized for pleas ure purposes only, that Is. of course. If so strenuous a game a "squash" can be called a pleasure. For the benefit of those) who may not know Just what "squash" Is It may be said that It I a sort of Indoor tennis, a second cousin to ping-pong, a dta tant relative of base ball and somewhat similar to . chopping wood. It Is played with a net like a ennle net, only different. and with tennis balls that have had a coat of paint or something added to their ex terlors. Bald balls are propelled with I freak sort of noise and racket, and alto gether It la great sport and good exercise and lot of both. The local club' room I located In the Dally News building and the membership Is composed of auch well known people as Mr. and Mrs. Richard Stewart, Mrs. Charles Kountze. Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Sprague. Frank Haskell, W. IT. McCord, Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Burns, Sam Bum and many others.

GUAHW1TEED AKD FOB SALE BY 2 Druir Jl country, tennis wss correspondingly neg lected, but golf wss found to be a little too strenuous for a good many people, with the result that they went back to the ribboned court with renewed vigor. Owing to th lack of demand the manufacturers of ten nis goods quit making them altogether, with Uie result that last year when the renewed demand came It waa next to Im possible to fill orders. Peveial times I sent n 'order for a dozen racket and In th course of a week or two would get perhaps threw by express; but there will be no diffi culty of that kind this year." In the minds of a good many people golf never saw th day that It wss as good an all-around game for men and women both as tennis, but It Is nevertheless undoubtedly a fact that many a good court has become grass grown during the past year or two, or since the general taking up of golf. A new racket, by the way, has been put on the market for the coming season that will delight the hearts of all exponents of the game. It Is a thlrteen-ounce creation with a new fangled handle and nn Ingenious braiding of the gut that will give It an added strength and firmness In the band. Of course the price has been msterlally strengthened, too, but that will make but little difference to those who like the game and the appearance of the new racket. The executive committee of the Country club haa not as yet engaged a professional golf Instructor for the coming season, but haa under consideration the names of several well known experts whose service may be secured, and will make a selection and engagement this week. Meantime the club' course Is being gotten Into shape for the season, though several Important changes that are contemplated will not be made until art Instructor and overseer Is engaged and installed. In order that the work may be done under his supervision and dlreotlon. .. The thlrj of the Interstate mld-wlnter shooting tournament will be held at Sen eca. Kan.. March 8 to 10 Inclusive, and the promoters thereof are using all kinds of bait to make It as big an occasion and as largely attended as was the shoot In this city. There Is nothing small about the Omaha gunners except their appetite for dead birds, so they are planning to send a rousing big delegation of their members and help make the Seneca shoot a success. But it Is barely possible that their motive In going Is not altogether phllarthroplc, for a good bunch of prizes has already been hung up and If aome of the Omaha men don't bring home a large sized piece of money a the result of the trip. It will be because they did not keep their powder dry Hesldes the regular pool prizes the Seneca club has chipped In $190 that will be added to the various events during the three days' shoot. Then there Is a very handsome silver cup, all of which, taken with the rivalry of the teams from the four states represented, will make things go Borne. It Is stated on Indisputable authority that the St. Croix Tennis club Is to begin the erection of a new club house Just as soon as a selection of a site Is made from the three or four now under consideration. The plans are not made-yet only In a reneral way. but the house will be adapted to the grounds, which It Is proposed to have laid out with a view to the greatest and best accommodation for all the mem. bera. The club Is In a flourishing condi tion and the winter months have been far from wasted by Its members, for they, as a club, have had a number of exclusive little soirees that have been most enjoy able. The board of directors of the Trans mlsslsslppt Golf aasociatlon recently held a meeting In this city and decided that the next meeting of tha-assoclation should be held at Minneapolis next July. It l but natural that aome of the local en thusiasts should question th wisdom of this selection and wonder why Omaha wa not selected, especially when the Field club ha one of the finest and largest courses to be found anywhere. But the one who question the wisdom of the se lection of Minneapolis are as a rule the ones who, for some reason or other can not go and their criticism is therefore but natural. And It Is Just as natural for those who can go to be glad of the chance to get away from home and. Incidentally to visit so beautiful and aristocratic town as the Mill city la acknowledged to be. Here's hoping they all hav a glori ous time. The Field club tennis eonrt. already among the finest ever, win ne put into extra good shape this year, preparatory to the holding of the Middle Weat tourna ment this season. The date has not been decided upon a yet, owing to a desire to make It not conflict with the date of any other meet and thus get the greatest crowd possible. Already some national experts far east of the big river have promised to come and more are being ne gotiated with. It look now If it would be a memorable event of Its class. The eyes of all the stay-at-home bowler and there I a big bunch of them In Omaha have been on the Cleveland tour nament this week, waiting to see the na tion's best fall down to Ignominious defeat before our representatives at the big tour. nament. Thus far they have looked and waited In vain for anything that looked like a victory for the local contingent, the only time any of their names have gotten Into the press dispatches being Wednesday, when Welty and Wlgman rolled up the creditable score of 1,048 In thalwo-man match. But even this was not good enough and left the men well down the line. There 1 nobody but what would like to see the Omaha boys come home with a little of the money and a lot of the glory of the Cleveland tournament, but It Is well enough to remember that while this town Is un questionably the best one In the United States, it 1 not the only one, oh, dear, no, and there are men who know how to bowl some, east of the Mississippi. In other words. It's of no use for Oinaha bowlers to cry for what they can't have. What they've got to do is come home and get a reputation. There will be other tournaments. Meantime there h been lot of fun on th local alleys th past week and some good scores tesides. On the Oute City boards Gale Martin scored 5 at seven up and won a prize, William Ahmanson rolled up 244 at ten pins and did likewise and C. S.

Unsolicited Opinion of An Expert Chemist Uricsol Chemical Co., Los Angeles, Cal. Gentlemen: Having had the opportunity of testing your preparation for the treat ment of the Uric Acid Diatheses, very ap propriately called Uricsol, It Is a pleasure to be able to say that It has made Itself deserving of much eeteem and confidence. The opportunity waa one of which the manufacturer had neither knowledge nor ntlmatlon. The Incident of armuininnivi was brought shout by a happy chance. Edwrd U. S. Holmes was In China at the earlier date of the Boxer outbreak and he first Peking horror drove him from h Celestial Kingdom. Suffering Ironi terriblo exposure before he sailed, and still worse xposure while a passenger on u freight teamer. he reached this country InvallilnH with Rheumatism. At a nhice chIIpH Turner, not far from Salem, Oregon, he found friends. The disorder, muscular and articular combined, had possession of him In the most aggravated form: it waa then that his friends obtained Uricsol from woodward at to., Portland (driiKglsts). Ills report, as given August 6, on his com ing to Newark,, was In four words: "It cured me promptly. " The c;tse was one of much Interest, although full particulars were not brought, and led to the laboratory acquaintance, tne samples ncing bought through a Salem druggist, the person or dering it having the Impression that Wood ward & Co. manufactured It. I have no "testimonial" to write. Mr. Rrsleetlona f a Bachelor., , Money makes th morals go. A girl la very sensible not to get married till she ha a chance. It take almost a much hop to be promoter aa to be a candidate for office There I a certain atage about woman' dressing whr the mora she put on th Y7 tp o yO f T58 Tu 1 A w raew Uricsol not only cures tho common forms of Kheuinatisni but it docs what no other remedy ever has succeeded in accomplishing before. It dissolves and eliminates deposits in the joints, where they have been accumulating for years. Records are in our possession, not of one but of many cases where the joints of the fingers were so thickened as to be practically rigid and useless; where the hip or knee joints were, so filled with the deposit as to render the patient wholly unable to walk, and who have been restored to health and activity by the systematic use of Uricsol. An occasional case is found which refuses ,to yield to treatment, but these are rare, and we can truth fully claim the remarkable record of 90 per cent of cures, where a proper opportunity is given the remedy to accomplish the result. Holmes' esse Is mentioned simply to state the circumstances of Introduction. The results of laboratory and somewhat limited clinical research present several striking points of Interest. To these I desire to cull particular attention, in proof of the deserving esteem and confidence to which reference has been made. It neutralizes tho Uric Acid without over stimulating the kidneys. This, of course, Is the secret cf Its success, as a neutral subject will not produce detrimental re sults. It does not disturb the digestive pro cesses. It controls the action of the heart with out depressing 11 and without causing any exhaustion. In regulating the pulse It does not cause any nuusea or other dls agreeble symptoms. It acts In accordance with nature's own laws in controlling the nerves of voluntary motion. , It does not Impair the quality of the blood In other words. It does not Impair the constructive energies of the system. It has an action on the liver which Is very gently alterative. 1 It seems to produce a mild, pleasant, physiological and healthy stimulation of the intestinal glands. These several facts concerning physio logical action go to accentuate Its value as a Uric Acid solvent, WILLARD H. MOORE, M.D., F.S.8.. eto. Consulting Chemist. An Instance of Prompt Relief.
