Stand for BOO crowds very long at home.
Omaha players have been hanging out
wore hits In a game than they used to get
in a week, and It's a cinch that that sort
f thing will win In time. The
experience of the Rourke family haa not
been exactly encouraging alnoe It set sail
for the state of strikes and cllmi'te, but It
has hardly been worse than was expected.
In fact, the batting haa been a decidedly
encouraging feature, and we all feel that
with a little more practice for the games
of laat week were little more than prac
tice games for Omaha, even If they do
count In the standing the team 'will be
able to hold Its own, even with the "100 per
cent" boys from Denver. In fact, there's
a sneaking belief here that Mr. Rurko will
be willing to take 98.8 for his gang be
fore It gets home from Its first trip. It
doesn't look such a much from this dis
tance, and barring Its pitchers, can be
duplicated several times without going out
aide the league.
Ta Rourke's first letter home contained
the looked-for roar on the umpire. lie
says Cusack Insisted on the pitchers stand
ing with both feet on the ground while in
the act of delivering the ball. No rule re
quires this, and if that Is Cusack's Inter
pretation of the law laid down by the
high cockalorums of the game, he had bet
ter give up right away. The pitcher Is til
lowed to lift one foot and tike one step
when In the act of delivering the ball. He
must start with both feet against the rub
ber, but Isn't required to keep them there
11 the time. Ryan may have been respon
sible for this vagary on the part of
Cusack, for smooth Jimmy had his twlrlers
trained to stand In the attitude described,
and this naturally gives him a shade the
best of It on the go In. It's only another
evidence that you've got to live and learn
to keep up with the glorious game of base
ball. And there's mighty few wrinkles In
the business that good old Jimmy Ryan
doesn't know something about. Just the
same, he'll find out that he Isn't the whole
procession before the end of next Septem
ber, and this Isn't a threat; It's only a
promise.
Just to show that the Omaha team Isn't
the worst thing that ever happened, here Is
the record It made during the games played
up till Saturday of last week:

These statistics are not at all satlsfac

Just now. It Is just as unnatural to have
Bobbie Carter fielding 70 per cent as it I
to have Henderson batting lft) per cent
Last season Henderson was at the la

treat says: ' "Wbtui a young man I strained my back lifting, and ever
since any extra work, too much stooging or a cold settling la ths lotas

OF. THE WEEK
Better things are certainly looked for. The
b.tttlng Is satisfactory, a tc.-im average of
.271, but the drilling .9o5, Is sway below par.
Downs' work at fcr-ond evidently didn't
suit Papa Bill, for the redheaded boy was
lifted out of the pame lit the third Inning
last Monday and Howard aent In. Howarl
has been playing second fairly well and
Welsh haa been doing nil that could be ex
pected of him In the outfield, but the
change has been one for the worse.
Dea Mo'pea suffered even worse than
Omaha, though, for Young Towne, the first
baseman who went behind the bat to stop
the gap there, nnd who was doing splen
didly as a catcher, had a flnser broken In
one of the Denver games and left Hoffer
high nnd dry for a backstop. Hoffman was
moved from short to the wlndpad station
snd the team generally rearranged. Hoffer
hopes that Lee Fohl will come buck, now
that he has been turned loose by Detroit,
but Fohl professes to have a desire to stay
In Chicago and sue the Tigers for a season's
pHy, alleging that he wasn't treated right
by the management. I'nless he would
rather work than play base ball ho will be
back in Dcs Moines before very long.
This matter of supply and demand In base
ball is a queer thing. Last season third
basemen were as scarce as hen's teeth; now
almost every team In the country has two,
and some of them three, and catchers, who
I w re so plentiful a few years ugo that the ,
pooreru nuu luuiu jihvu iwu uremic:, itrv ao
few that some clubs hnven t any, and none
has more than It really needs. Part of this
s due to the practice that Is being revived
In the big leagues of having a certain
catcher to work with u certain pitcher, and
to lay off one when the other Isn't working.
This was all right In the good old days
when one or two gumes a week were us
ninny as a pitcher or catcher could stand,
but In these times when a careful catcher
will go through an entire season without
having ao much as a fingernail taken off, It
seems a little fuddy. But the big olubs will
have to commence to weed out pretty soon
In order to get down to the legal limit of
rosters, and then the little fellows will have
a chance to get some needed players.
Papa Bill Rourke hopes to introduce to
the Omaha public very soon another
pitcher. He will give no tip as to the name
of the lucky boy Just now, but admits that
his negotiations with a big league club are
about to bear fruit. Bill has been work
ing on this deal for a long time and be
lieves he has the matter cinched now.
With this man and Brown, who will be
here about the first week In June, he
thinks he will be In good shape on the
pitching proposition. Root, who did not
accompanying the team on its western trip.
has been given his release along with
Downs, so as to bring the team down to
the fourteen men limit.
The team will get home from Dea Moines
next Friday evening, and on Saturday will
entertain the Hawkeyea at a reception at
the Vinton park. No parade will be in
dulged in, but Mayor Moores will pitch the
first ball, as he haa done every season
since the present Western league was called
into existence. An orchestra will play
during the afternoon and the affair will
be made as pleasant as possible for every
body in attendance. Including the Dea
Moines team, the members of which will
be considered the guests of Omaha, and
will be trealed aa such, except that they
will be gloriously beaten in the conflict It
Is not known who will be assigned as um
pire here, but this will be a small item.
Soma little consolation exists in the
thought that we nearly won a game off
Pop Kyler on the Denver grounds, and
that It wasn't his pitching that beat us.
We hammered the old boy for an elegant
bunch of safeties, but the muffs of Carter
and Welsh were enough to lose two games
Instead of one. Eyler has been fortunate
as well as skillful in his Ions string of
victories over Omaha, and it seems that
his luck Is going to hold out until the end.
The team at Sioux City haa received sup
port that augurs well for the financial suc
cess of the team. On the opening day
nearly 1000 people were present. It was the
greatest Incentive to good work that Cap
tain Jay Andrews, could receive. Several
players didn't show up until Just before
the opening game, fcelgler, a heavy batting
outfielder, died of pneumonia, which was a
sad blow to the Sioux. Bert Dunn, the sec
ond baseman, spilt his hand in preliminary
practice for the opening game and could
not participate In any of the home series.
and Captain Tommy Hess was unable to
catch in the St. Joe series here. Of the
four games played at Sioux City "King"
Kelley, the little shortstop who with Omaha
last year caught two. Jay Parker.
pitcher, caught one, and In the last c the
series Buerwald, who has been all around
the circuit already this season, caught. In
none of the four games played was the In
field or the outfield the same. With all
these afflictions to contend with Sioux won
three of four games at home In the first
series. And all the fans are satisfied. Vpon
Pitchers Jarrott and Parker haa fillen the
most of the work. Jarrott pitched two of
the four games here against Chlnn of St.

Though Des Moines has seen no cham
pionship games and the team has been h.t
tlng a losing gait in the west, the fans, are
In no way disheartened 'and await tie
home-coming of the team anxiously. There
Is a rivalry felt In Des Molnea between
Ploux City and Dcs Moines for state hon
ors. If Des Moines has to be at the bottom
the local fans hope that Sioux City will be
Just beneath. On the other hand, if the
I'o'.ltlclans are at the top the same feeling
exists that Sioux City be Just one notch
underneath.
The plans for the opening day of the
Field club, next Saturday, are now practi
cally complete, and appearances Indl ate
that the golf tournament, with which the
event will be signalised, will be a good
one to go by for the rest of the season.
It Is to be a handicap race over the new
course of eighteen holes, and is In charge
of the tournament committee, of which E.
P. Boyer Is chairman, with Walter I). Wll
klns and Instructor A. J. Christy acces
sories before and after the fact. The handi
caps will be given at the time the player J
are paired off by this committee, and s me
very attractive prizes have been donated
for the best net scores by various concerns
around town. The llrst prize is a golf bag,
donated by the Deo-Qlass-Andreesen com
pany; second, a pair of golf clubs, given
by the Townaend Gun company; third, pair
of golf clubs, by the Omaha News com
pany; fourth, box of cigars, given by Pax
ton & Gallagher. The Richardson Drug
company also give a box of cigars for the
best gross score. Last year there were 115
golfers at the club, and this season more
than 150 have already begun to warm up to
the game, with still more to follow.
Among those who have shown the fastest
clip thus far are H. B. Morrill, who was
last year's champion by a wide margin and
who bids fair to hold onto the laurels won,
this season; C. R. Bone, Dr. Sumney, J. B.
Kahm, Harry Lawrie, John Murphy and a
lot of others who are not so far behind but
what they can hear the remarks of the
leaders when things don't driven Just right.
The members of the Field club felt that
they were fortunate In securing the ser
vices of such a man aa Christy tor an in
structor from the time of his engagement.
but he has already made good in a man
ner that makes their assurance QouDiy
sure. HI record, so far as golf Is con
cerned, is one to conjure by, and while he
haa aa yet taken time to play over the
course only once or twice, on every occa
sion he hus played so close to the bogey
of 82 that his game has looked large to all
who have seen It. Christy is a member of
the St. Andrews Golf club of Scotland, and
one has only to hear him talk and see him
handle a club to be convinced that he is to
the manor born. For the laat six years he
has been with the Riverside and Home
wood clubs, both of Chicago, and holds the
course record of both. Beat of all, ha is
an expert club maker, and has, in fact.
spent much of his time since he has been
in Omaha in fitting out various members
of the club with sticks that have In every
Instance proven more than satisfactory. A
completely equipped shop for the manufac
ture and repair of all golf rigging has been
installed at the club house and breakdowns
have thus far been largely robbed of their
terrors.
The Crelghton second team went to
Bellevue the other day and took a tumble
out of the home team at the ratio of 7 to L
Every one of the minor as well aa the
heavy weight teams of the city that have
gone against these youngsters thus far
hava given them a drubbing and yet the
Bellevue lads have a good team and play
good ball on occasion. It must be a case
of stage fright when it comes to lining up
against an Omaha combination. Come to
think of It, though, this rule seems to hold
good aa to all kinds of athletics in which
Omaha is concerned. The High school
basket ball team, both of boys and ' girls.
have lowered the colors of Bellevue and
at the track stunts held at the Toung Men's
Christian association, a few weeks ago
Bellevue was also found, wanting.
Considerable Interest Is evinced among
local automobile drivers In the coming
international cup race from the fact that
the Winton concern has decided to enter
it's famous "Bullet No. 2," until recently
driven with such great success by Barney
Oldfleld, and that the Peerless company
will also put one of Its machines into the
competition. Probably more than 90 per
cent of Omaha machines are of one or the
other of these makes and the Interest and
rivalry Is perfectly natural. . When Old'
field drove the Winton car It beat all
world's records up to fifteen miles, with a
one mile straightaway at Ormond beach in
forty-three seconds. It has an eight
cylinder engine and though rated at only
eighty horsepower. Is believed capable of
developing 120. The car Is now slightly
over the cup weight, but can be stripped
to get within the requirements. On the
other hand the owners of the Peerless
racer will not divulge many -facts concern'
Ing It but it Is known to be lighter and of
less horse power than the other. Oldfleld
Is authority for the assertion that in his
opinion the lighter car stands the better

chance over a long road with grades and
turns such aa will characterise the course
in the International race. Meantime the
Omnha owners of both makes of machines
111 centlnue to brag of the relative merits
of each and whichever comes out ahead
n the great event will not make the
slightest difference In the cplnlon of either
class. Fredriekson, by the Way, the agent
n Omaha for both these makes, has
ordered a Winton "nullet" for his own
use and will have It here In a few days to
exhibit to Its various admirers.
One of the notable auto excursions by
Omaha people this season will be taken by
Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Wllklns. who will leave
for New York City the Hrst of July. In
tending to make the entire trip there and
back In their touring car and be gone
wo months, or as much longer as It takes
to go, see all the sights en route and
come back again. They will be accom
panied by Louis Bostwkk and his camera
and anticipate a Journey long to be
remembered. They will tour the New
England states while absent and get a stop
over ticket for St. Louis exposition on
their way back. Mr. and Mrs. Wllklns
went to Buffalo by the same means last
season and so have no misgivings as to
the pleasure to be derived from their com
ing Jaunt.
The auto fad Is certainly assuming gigan
tic proportion.! in Omaha and bids fair to
outstrip all other forms of sport by those
who have the wherewithal. And there are
heaps of them who have, or did have, for
new machines are shying into the streets
every day. The honk of the new chaffours
keeps pedestrians stepping sideways and
motormen and teamsters on the qui vlve,
but nobody has been hurt yet, so far as
heard from, and there Is very little scorch
ing on the part of the. benzine burners so
far as observed within the city limits. The
big tourng cars seem to have the call for
the man who is able to own and operate a
small one can handle and, usually, buy a
big one as well, so there are ten of the ton
neau variety to one of the runabouts. The
garage that's the swell name for bensine
buggy shop corner is a busy place these
days, and what, with the amateurs who
are Just learning the game and occasionally
try to climb the sides of the buildings and
the telegraph poles; the ones who have
learned it to such good purpose that they
have broken down, and the machines being
exhibited by the experts anxious to sell it,
In little wonder that this particular pave

W. D. Nesblt, In the Chicago Tribune.
The April number of the Auto Era, con
tains a half-page cut underneath which are
the magio words, "Mr. William H. Crane
takes a spin in Mr. H. E. Frediickson's
Winton at Omaha." Either the photog
rapher or the engraver haa given Mr. Fred
riekson the appearance of having his wires
crossed or else being in the unenviable posi
tion of a man with a flea gnawing at his
vitals and has been ths cause of much
good-natured "kidding" on the part of the
well known chauffeur's Omaha friends. Mr.
Crane did not fare much better in the pic
ture. He has a slant on, literally speak
ing, and a ook-pleasant-pleaae smile that
certainly won't come off. But the likeness
of the machine Is excellent, and of course
that Is the main thing under the circum
stances. Bwl
There will be a show down in the long
dawn out negotiations between the Omaha
Driving association and the men who now
control the driving parH this week. In
speaking of the matter the other day Sec
retary James W. Carr of the association
aid that the organization he represents
has been waiting, since its meeting in
March, at Mr. Dennlson's request, on the
ground that he was too 111 to transact any
business and not because they had no
alternative but to wait.
"Now that i he is recovered," said Mr.
Carr, "there Is no reason why the matter
should not be closed up one way or the
other, and it will be so far as we are
concerned. We have made Tuthtll and
Dennlson two propositions, one for the pur
chase of their rights and one for the
lease of the property. They have also
told us what they would take on the pur
chase proposition, and it is more than the
property is worth and more than the as
sociation can or will give. If they do
not materially decrease this figure or decide
to lease the property to us at a fair
price, we shall not bother with the matter
any more, but will make other arrange
ments. The only other plans we can
make at present are to hold our meets on
the speedway south of Hanscom park or
go to the Council Bluffs track. Either
of these arrangements, of course, places
the association at a disadvantage, but
that would be only for this season. It
Is the aim and purpose of the association
to ultimately own its own grounds and
to have a club house and all the acces
sories thereon, but this acquirement has
got to be worked up to gradually. We
cannot do it at one Jump, and will not
make the mistake of trying to. Our first
meeting is set for May 31 and will be
held on that date somewhere, with a meet
ing every two weeks thereafter during the
summer. Of course we hope and I may
say that I believe it will be on the track
at the driving park; but the half-mile
straightaway at the speedway Is not so
bad."
i
It la more or leas well known among the
local drivers that the club has offered Tut
hill and Dennlson two for their Interest at
the driving park, and that the price set by
the owners is 10u0. though Mr. Carr would
not deny or affirm these figures. Tuthtll
says the buildings alone, which comprise
his interest, are worth more than the driv
ing association offers for the whole shoot
ing match and that, on ths other hand, he
does not want to lease, but wants to get
rid of the property at a fair, reasonable
price and wash his hands of the game and
the nJxup aa It now exists, and the way
It looks from the road no one can blame
him. Dennlson is noncommittal. Carr says
It will be settled this week.

GOOD
THE
Riches take wings and fly away are squandered- and lost
in extravagance and speculation, and niore often prove a curse
than a blessing. A foolish desire to accumulate wealth for the
benefit of posterity, has led to the -physical undoing of thou
sands. Health is lost in the mad pursuit of riches, diseases are
contracted, the vitalizing, nutritious properties of the blood are
almost exhausted by demands of the nervous system, and it is
little wonder that children born of such parents are sickly,
weak, anaemic and illy developed. Better to be born poor aud
healthy than rich and sickly.
Good blood is the best legacy, for that means strong, vigorous bodies, well nourished sys
tems and nerves, muscles'aud all the machinery of the body in perfect condition. When handi
capped by some inherited disease, not ouly is life's strugglevmade harder, but existence becomes
a lingering misery, and even if blessed with riches, sickness is a hindrance to their enjoyment.
Through the blood, diseases are carried from one generation to another. Parent transmit,
them to their children, and so it goes on for years unless the taint is lemoved from the blcnxU
Cancerous Ulcers, Rheumatism, Blood Poison,
Scrofulous Sores and Swellings, Skin Erup
tions of various kinds, are all evidences of a de
praved and poisoned blood. " Like begets
like" is true of the vegetable world, and is
true also of the animal kingdom. We know
that certain seeds produce certain plants, and
sickly parents or those in whose blood is a
taint of some old family ailment or blood poi
son ; diseases are apt to develop in their chil
dren, either in infancy or later on in life. If
you can't leave a legacy of riches, at least
start them out in life with pure and unpolluted
blood : this thev can with reason exnect. for
it is their rightful inheritance. Often some old chronic illness that might have been uprooted
and driven out of the blood is neglected, and posterity is made to suffer the consequences of this
neglect. If you have any disease for which bad blood is responsible, to neglect it is almost a
crime you are unjust to yourself and false to your offspring to do so. Purify your blood; get
rid of the taint and. leave to others good blood which, after all, is the best legacy. No remedy
ever discovered is so reliable in diseases of the blood as S. S. S. Experience and a thorough
test have proven its efficacy. It has been in use for nearly fifty years aud has been growing in
dition, and through it new energy and strength are imparted to all parts of the system, the cir
culation is quickened, and the old taint, humor or poison causing the disease is driven out
through the natural channels. Keep 3'our own blood uncontaminated if you hope to leave a
welcome legacy to those who come after. If you have any chronic trouble or stubborn skin dis
ease due to bad condition of the blood, write us about it and our physicians will cheerfully advise
you without charge. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC COMPANY, ATLANTA, CAm

event of the meeting. Gus Schroedcr an

The possession of another cup got down to
a question of superiority between Veach

for he got five first moneys, as It was, and
lost only six birds out of the first 120 he
banged - at. He killed 20 straight In one
event and 15 tn another, and to top oft
with, was elected treasurer of the Inter
state association, so that now he has all
the money of the whole shebang anyhow
and doesn't need to waste any more pow
der to get it. But he probably will, Just
the same. The only big prize that got at
tached to Kansas City was the T. I
Coombs trophy, won here last winter by
Silver Sleverson, which went to C. Dixon.
It might be stated in passing that one
reason why the Kawvllle man beat Silver
out of the Coombs trophy was because the
aforementioned Sliver wasn't there to pro
tect It. Incidentally, it may be challenged
and shot for at any time within a year.
The St. Croix Tennis club will be heard
from within a few weeks In a way that
may surprise the people hereabouts. Six
courts are being constructed on this or
ganization's grounds at Thirty-second and
Center streets that will, when completed,
be second to none In this part of the coun
try. More than all that, a little bird Is per
sistently circulating the report that before
many more seed times and harvests "nave
come and gone the club will have a house
to go with the grounds and a lot of other
things will add to Its price and popularity.

INHERITED SCROFULA..
Dear Sirs: I Inherited Sorofula, and abont seven yswi
ago suflered Intensely from it. Tried every doctor availa
ble at great expense, but grew rapidly worss ; la faot, had
Riven up all hope of being cured, and as a dying man will
grasp nt a straw, I was persuaded by my brother, muoh
against my will, to try S. S. 8. After taking lx bottles,
I felt a wonderful ohange for the better. I oontlnned to
take it for about bix months, taking in all about fifteen bot
ties, whloh entirely enred me. '
It Is with pleasure that I reoommend your medicine,
and I oannot say too much In Its praise. It Is oertainly
better than all doctors for diseases caused by Impure
blood, whether Inherited or otherwise, In addition to be
ing muoh less expensive, it does its work thoroughly and
without fail. Wishing you unlimited suooess, whloh your
medicine so Justly deserves, I reman.
