THE OMAHA DAILY BEE: SUNDAY MAY 15. 1004.
19 SPORTING GOSSIP Mart" worn ball. Omaha's tam has made a little progress during th week, and Is fuft getting Into condition to do what we have a reasonable Mght to expect from It. One of tde ehlef feat ores of the return. of tfie team to Its hom (round ha been the drvelnprm nt of team play, which la now belnn drilled Into th youngnter. This Is fur from perfect yet, but la making progress, and an im provement la notloeablo In the piny. For some unaccountable reason, the 1ml ling lms fallen off materially, eomo , of the mm who wera looked to as genuine slnggi ra having dropped bark Into the kindergarten claaa once more. No reason enn be As signed for thla, but there Is some comfort lit the thought that the men feel that they are not delivering the good, imd are ns anxious aa any one ran be for the de. slrad Improvement. In flehllfig the work of all but Hhlpke haa been Rood. He haa had a run Of decidedly tough luck since coming home, and haa not played nearly an safe an he did during the trip nbroml. He la neither shirking nor aulklng, so hla piny U not likely to continue at lta present low ebb. The statistic of the team's work are not So satisfactory aa they might be. Still It la batting at a good ells, unci fielding fairly well. The ateady Improvement In tha Melding figures Is the beat sign. Here ta what the tab shows up to Friday night: BATTING AVKUAGK3. AH. U.

Ill work with the bat la tip to hi true form, far ahead of. what he usd to do for Omaha, but just the gait he attack when he was the wonder of the bia; league for two seasons. HI Melding la Improving slowly In the percentage column, but the cold figures do not give any Idea of how brilliant It really Is. He ha gone after everything In sight, and his gsneral work ha been such a to fully reinstate him In the good grace' Of local fandero. Ha has settled down at last. I A every : Restaurant and Club ' . u - . Ajmt Call for : SSfSJ OMAHA'S I 5SSgpssJ : FAVORITE1 fiM teal W w d LjjiJ OF THE WEEK taking good care of himself, and announce that he lx through with fooling from now on. It Is a matter of biialnes with Joe, and every reaaon exists for thinking that he kitenda to be as good as his word. His example is bound to have Its effect on th teem work. nd Is already showing good result. When Dolan Is right and willing to play, he la as good na they make them at the short stop position, and It cer lalnly looks as If lie were right Just now. Other members of the team have im proved their lit Itl I tin figures during th week. Wclrh and Miller anJ Thorns went through the last five games without bobble, but Carter and Oondlng each malt' Hged to stumble Into an error. Bhlpke ha had a hard lme, but hasn't- lost his oour age as a result, and will be found Melding with the best of them. He is playing a hard game, going after everything, tif mat ter In what place It Is, and ha knocked down some mighty hard hits through his activity. One of the errors charged to him during the- Ies Moines Scries was cer tHlnly the result of an umpire' blunder. for It looked from the scorer' box a If Hhlpke bad his man. He didn't handle the ball cleanly, though, .and had to take the blunt of It when the runner van called aafc. Tlmmns Is doing Just what was ex pected of him at first, but hasn't been able to get them Into safo territory for some days. Ho feels very blue over his poor work nt the bat, but his prospects are a good na they ever were, and he will be omoiiK the .310 boys before. the season Is very much older. Carter Is having some trouble In 'the same respect, though he is working ns hard as he ever did. It will not he forever , with Nick, either, nor with Dusty Miller, whose hit have been much Interfered with by visiting fielder during the last five games. Howard still shows to some extent the lark of experience at eeC' ond, but la doing a general run of work that has made him Immensely popular. A soon ns he learns the niceties of his post tlon he will have a little something on all the rest of the second basemen In the blooming league. He la cool and quick, and la thinking all the time. Harry Welsh I "right" at last, and la playing the middle Meld like a veteran and hitting a pretty fair clip. Generally speaking the team I doing right well in every respect except the pitching staff. Pfelater appear to be the goods. HI wlldness on Friday wa due In a great measure to the fact that he hadn't worked any for ten days and .the bad weather, but he mnde a -nice showing at that. Schafstatl Is again nursing a sore shoulder, having torn a ligament in a fall during practice; IJebhardt's arm In suffering from the, ef fects of hla hand work at Colorado Spring and Denver: It Is not sore, but seems weak. McCarthy Is In good condition, and so la Companion, but neither haa shown first chop pitching qualities yet. Rourke haa not let up on his hunt for men, but Is still dickering with National league manager. and Is confident of landing another high grade pitcher before the end of the home Berles. Brown' work over at Ante la .i. mm ' getting better, but ha positively refuse to leave school before the end of the year and will not Join the team till tha 10th of June. when we will be playing Dee Moines on the home grounds again. With a couple more good pitchers, we will surely be in the rare for th flag. 1 . President Rourke is working hard to get his men Into condition for the best possible results, and expresses himself as much encouraged by the spirit they show In their efforts. He feels that he will be 1n the race long before the present home aerie ends. One of his efforts at present is to revive the Interest of the women of Omaha In the game. Iast season the fair sex somewhat deserted the ball park. In order to win them back Mr. Rourke has sought to make ladles' day as attractive as pos sible. He not- only provides a good ball game on each occasion, bat gives the ad ditional charm of good music, having hired an orchestra to play while the game Is In progress. . On Monday St. Joseph will be here, and President Rourke Invites every woman In Omaha to come out and occupy a seat la the grand stand and see a good game of ball free of cost. ' Lincoln 1 to have a base ball team thla summer and Judging by the men who Jiave been signed to play so far, It Is going to be one of the strongest independent organisations In the state. A large num ber of the university men have engaged to stay In the city and work during the summer months and the team will start off with at least seven of the strong men who represented Nebraska university on the diamond this spring. Tho university team ployed but one gume In Omaha, that against the Crelghton university . . team. which was defeated by a score of 12 to 1. Thla will give a alight Idea of tho sort of ball the summer organisation that Is to play In Lincoln can put up. The following are the men who have been signed so far: Bender, catcher; Morse and Adams., pitch ers; Wilson, first base; Hammel, second base; Rhodes, short stop; Steert, third base; Fenlon, left Meld; Townsend, center Meld; Bennet, right Meld. Rhodes and Wilson are former university stars and thus with the exception of Bennet, the whole team will be muds up of university players. Borne games have already been arranged and the season will open at the F. & M. park Decoration day. There Is no state league this year, but no trouble is anticipated In getting games, as a large number of the town In the state have already started organisation for this sum mer and more of them will fall Into line n the season advance. Any strong team In the state that would like a game will be given a chance to show what It enn do. The team, as It Is now lined up, will bo a stronger organisation than that which de feated the Omaha league team early In the season by th score of 19 to S. Manager Bell haa been selling season ticket for the past two week and the way they are be lng taken up Insures a good patronage at the sporting event. COLORADO SPRINGS, May 14.-(Spe clal.) More pitcher, more pitcher, I the cry of the local fans, for It Is evident that unless tha Millionaire include In their com pany mora tried and trusty men of the mighty arm there will b no western league pennant waving In Colorado Spring on September T6, 1904. When the team left for the eaat last Tuesday evening they had but three twlrlera and only one of the trio was absolutely reliable. McNeely can be depended upon to pitch hla share and a little more, of the games, but Coon and Akers, while they have ' done some good work, are uncertain, a condition affecting the serving department that cannot exist If the aggregation la to 'win the bunting. Manaager Jimmle Ryan haa signed Oscar Clarke, ef tho Rock Islanders, and haa anr other man In view who may have been landed by thla time. The second man la be lieved to be none other than George Vllle man of laat year' team, who refused to Ign this season because of a cut. In hla salary. If the salary arrangement can be adjusted and Vllleman secured the fan feel that all will be well. Clarke la not known here, but Is said to be a good one by George Graham, formerly hi team mate. Wood rich, the other member of the local pitching- staff, was not taken east. but remained here to see If he could not round Into shape. Woodrlch has a wonder ful slow ball, but exhibited nothing else In tho portion of tha one game he ha pitched. With good twirling- there Is no reason why the Colorado Springs jaim should not lead them all a merry chase for the honors. The weak condition of the department Is what has the team now In second place with prospects of going lower If things are not remedied. The batting work of the locals la above reproach and it probably better than that of any other club, Denver included. A compilation of th Individual records up to and Including last Tuesday's game shows that there are three men batting above .400. They are Kahl, who has been slugging at a .471 clip for twelve games; Messltt. catcher, .418 for twelvo games, and. Baerwald, catcher, .400 for one gams and a time at bat In another game. Of th remainder of the team, five, Kill, Blake, Ryan, Graham and Congalton, stand above .300 and Radcllfr, substitute lnflelder, and McNeeley, pitcher, are .260 or better. Coons, another pitcher. Is bat ting at .200 for Mvo games. In fielding Congalton and Blake, outfielder, have each mada a perfect record for thirteen game. McNeeley, Baerwald and Akers are also In th 1.000 list Radcllft Is lowest In Melding- with .864 for six games and Kahl I next above wit his average of .368. DE8 MOINES.. May li-(Speclal.)-WIth the addition of a fast and experienced catcher th Des Moines team will be in shape to starti for the top of the ladder. De Moines has been most unfortunate In tha backstop department, having had three men put completely out of th gam within two weeks. When the team went to Omaha but one man, Boals, a local amateur, was In Mt shape to do the work. Somewhere amid the packing houses Hotter picked up a youngster named Clark. Des Molnas folks don't know who Clark Is, but If be keeps up the gait he has hit tbua far he la good enough to hang on to, for the time being at least. Th local officials have sent telegrams to half a dosen big league club asking for a catcher, but as yet no reply has been received, rhlladehphla would return Mar shall to Des Moines, but Shettsllne wants th earth and th local club hasn't got It to give. He will let Marshall come to Des Moines provided that an agreement I signed giving the Phillies a string on th big catcher at any time during th season, with Ave days notice. Half of th draft money has been paid the local club. If Marshall comes the other half la not to be paid and h Is to be returned to Phlladel- phla at the end of the season. All this I wanted for a catcher who I now Idling back In Philadelphia. Th local fana are simply aching for a chance to get a crack at the Millionaire and Tebau' Orlsslle on th De Moines field. Th trouncing De Moines got In both of the western towns waa a bitter pill even though It Is aa old story. From the sentiments expressed by he Omaha players whan here laat week all of the elubs are anxious to show what they can do against tha western teams when down on the plains. Mlk Sexton, when her last week, said that he thought Des Moines has a fast bunch of player thla year and that they will land near the top. He waa accused of impls flattery, but with a deep blush sa tlon and baM tt. Tu. Mnlnea bad a better team than for many years pa He waa earjeclaliv ntfcnaiaatle ahout Hn St. off man, the Ft. Louis boy who has taken O'leary's place at short. Hoffman, be fore the eeaaon Is over, will be a wonder. SPRINGFIELD, Neb.. Muy 14-To the Sporting Editor of The Bee: I noticed you account In laat Sunday' Be of the game of base ball that Cy "Young pitched for th Foatons against the Philadelphia, wherein only twenty-seven men cam to bat; I also note that you any: "In baae ball's Mfty year of life thla feat lias been accom pllahed but the one time." Without de tractlng anything from Mr. Young and the Poaton team, I desire to call your attention to a game of baae ball played between Springfield and Weeping Water, Neb., a Springfield, on Saturday, September 7 01, an account of which appeared In The Sundny Pee of September S, 1901, wherein Pitcher Kddle Clement pitched a game and accomplished the very same feat, besides breaking the world's record for allowing only twenty-seven men to come to bat The game was played In Just one hour, which also broke another world's record I enclose you tabulated score aa It ap peared In the local paper here in Its Issue of September 12, 1901. I wish you would have this score printed In next Sunday' Bee, and very much oblige. Your very truly, C. F. CALHOUN. SrRINOFlFLD. AB. R. H. P.O. A. E PMug.

Hit by pitched ball: By Reuf, 1. Umpire; Shnnnahan. Time: 1 hour. Now that the scoring and Jockeying be tween Tuthlll and Dennlson and the offi cials of the Omaha Driving club has been ended and the club is in full possession of the right and title to the driving park, the matinee fever has broken out In all kinds of new spots among the horsemen of the city, and there Is every prospect that th meeting scheduled for Monday, May 80, will be an eye as well as a season opener, Of course, all the member of the club are Intensely relieved that th uncertainty aa to their acquirement 'of th track In time for this summer' meets 1 at an end, and the former owners and lessee must feel mora settled In their midst, no matter which end of the trade they got hold of. Now It's up to the club to make good on the kind of horse entertainment provided, and there isn't a shadow of doubt but what It will more than do It. The club house project that refuses to be hushed up or choked off Is In embryo. It is true, and no on of the officials or' members wants to commit himself by saying anything- about it on way or the other. As a mat ter of fact nobody can say anything definite because the scheme la too muoh In Its In fancy. But it's a healthy youngster and th dearly beloved of every Individual member of th club and every one of then will go down deep In his pockets before he will see It perish of Inanition. It's a cinch that the day will com when th Omaha Driving; club's perk and club house and stables, and all the rest of It, will be one of tha attraction of the town, and when th ten plunks that It now coats to become a member of this organisation will not be a marker to what men will tumble over themselves to give to become members, without regard to whether they know th difference between a sweat pad and a hobble or not. It may not and prob ably will not be on th site of the present driving park, though they might go farther ahd do worse. But it will be somewhere and every turfman In tha city will pin to that statement. Still, that's all In th dim but not very distant future. What makes all th owners of fast ones rub their hands together and smile wide and deep and long Just now is that they have got th word and are off In a bunch for th final perfec tion of plans. . They are building from th ground up on a substantial basis, and will eventually be In under the wire with th best horse clubs in the country. Th plans for the summer Include the Mrat meet on May 80, as already announced, and on very two weeks thereafter during th racing- aeason; and then there will be apeclal days and events, such as the ihowing here Of Dan Patch, probably during or imme diately after tha atat fair, and other ultra-fancy performers. Th question of whether an admission fee should be charged to th matinees has been decided In th negativo and In that particular a good big bunch of the mem bers think a mistake has been made. It la probably true that any man who likes to see a horse rao likes it well enough to give a quarter for It, and would do so all th more readily If th funds thus g-alned were devoted to th hiring of a band of music There will be no mualo without th admission fee, except on state occasions, and it Is possible that th club will reconsider its action In this matter. And th attendants of th races are not th only ones to whom a band of musio Is worth two bits apiece. Th drivers drive better with it and th horses In front of them go better for It There's no question about that. Every driver will say so and every horse would IX he could talk. There' something about th right kind of music that adds Just ss much to a bora rao as It does to a funeral or a Sunday school picnic. Th entries for the first niatlne are already filling and all the sllok one In th city, marked and unmarked, beside sev eral from Council Bluffs and South Omaha, will be on hand to score In on of th four classes that will be started. As in days of yore, only half mile heats will be trotted and tha clip of the four c.laasee, A, B, C and D, will be something Ilk .07. .08. .10 and IX They will all be mixed races, which is a little hard on th square trotter a against the pacer, but th diversity of th classes will remedy this to a great extent. It has not yet been decided whether or not the winners shall b awarded 'something In th shape of a material trophy aa a whip, blanket 1 or ether article of hone clothing or util ity, or the proverbial blu ribbon, it's a pretty safe gamble tttat th ribbon, properly inscribed, will b th favorlt award with th majority of th winner, rather than something that likely as not they are already supplied with, would rather select themselves, anyhow, if they've got t have -It, and last, but not least, can't hang up where they can show It to their friends in an offhand sort of way Just as If they didn't rare Very much about It, nohow. Blu ribbons do not cost as much as whips and things. snd In certain rases are much more satis factory. Tills Is one of the cases. Aniot.g the flyers and drivers that will be In tb front line at th first meet will be tinting his cheeks he denied the nocu eons WAT Only those who have experienced the awful itching and burn ing of IJczema can know how it feels to be consumed by the blis tering, fiery acids oozing out through the pores of the skin. There is no other skin disease that compares in severity with Eczema. It begins as a mere redness of the skin, or comes in little watery blisters and pimples, discharging a thin sticky fluid which hardens into scabs and scales, leaving a raw and inflamed surface as they peel off, while the itching is almost intolerable. Eczema is the most vicious and violent of all skin diseases, ap- peanng in many dmerent tonus ; uie ary ana scaiy kiuu whu brownish white crusts, which gives the skin a rough leathery appearance, and producing some times painful fissures and sores. In other cases the skin has a swollen, moist appearance, with occasional profuse discharges of watery matter. But all the varieties and types of this aggra vating disease are akin and are caused by impure blood aud an over-acid condition of this vital fluid that seems to set the skin on fire, kindling a flame that water will not quench, and an itching, stinging eruption that lotions, soaps, salves and powders cannot suppress. As the poisonous acias in ine oiooa increase tuc erup tion spreads and becomes more angry looking, and the itching and burning more unbeara ble. Eczema is the commonest of all skin diseases, and the most aggravating and treach erous, disappearing at times, then returning suddenly and in a severer form than ever. It is particularly bad in warm weather, be cause at this season the skin is reacting and the blood is making extra effort to throw off the morbid secretions and acid impurities that have been accumulating during the long win ter months, and there is an over flow of the acrid matter andacid poison through the pores, producing irritation and redness of the skin and all the terrors of Eczema. Soothing applications are beneficial and advisable, but not curative, because the seat of" the disease is in the blood, and external or surface treatment can not change bad blood into good blood or purge the system of impurities. Only a blood puri fier can do this, and while treating the skin the blood must be looked after or the disease is sure to return when the blood is again overcharged with acids. . S. S. S. to purify and cleanse the blood, and some ncn-imtetmg, seething sas is tonic properties that enter into the circulation and destroy the impurities, and at the tame time tone up the general system. Skin diseases are, after all, only symptoms of impure and vitiated blood and external signs of disordered systems, and -when yott care the blood the erup tions disappear.

This pacer I unmarked, but has shown a half around tha 0.12 mark or bet-; ter and has never been let go th limit. It will b entered In tb C class.

Mr. Briggs has a green 4-year-old that he calls Palmaltlo that, while ha Is an unknown quantity as to speed. Is royal bred and ought to develop Into a topnotcher.

Brlgga of thla city ha shipped his famous stallion, Thorndlna, 2:11H. together with Nadlne and Mardine, two fast youngsters sired by Thorndine, to the Faslg Tipton com pany's sale In Chicago, which takes place from May 17 to n. Inclusive, and is un doubtedly the biggest fast horse sal In th world. Shortly before he was shipped Thorndine showed a half on th Council BlufTs track In 1:084 without any prepara tion, and It is believed by the Judg-es of horse flesh In this city that when he comes to be tried out on th Faslg track, as all horses sold there are, preliminary to th sal, that he will clip the half trotted by th now famous Lou Dillon In 1:01, pre llmlnsry to her sal on this same track last year; In a brush from the wire Thorny din has shown a quarter at a 1:52 clip on th tracks about her on several oc casions and his Chloago performance under th hand of men who know how to get all th apeed there is. Is awaited with no little degree of Interest, not only by his owner but by everyone else who. knows of his wonderful abUlUes. None of them would be surprised to se this Omaha horse devel oped Into a world beater. He Is a hand some fellow and the air of very many fast ones in this vicinity. It Is a source of often expressed wonder ment to the casual observer of matters snd things In and about Omaha that, with all th automobile In th city for th pur pose of pleasure and conveyance, that there is not on as yet used by the big department stores and other concerns for the delivery of their goods to different parts of th city. Omaha's enterprise and prog-resftlvenees In every other line of busi ness adds some color to the query as to why this Is thus. It Is doubtful If 4here la another town of the same sis In the oountry where th eleotrte delivery wagon as well ss the auto coup for th use of th general publlo Is not In use to a greater or lea extent And they will prob ably be her aa soon as some advertising manager think of It Just to stand and watch th sporting goods and hardware men shove) out Ashing tackle thes daya removes all doubt from th average mind but that the law pro tecting tb finny one for a part of the year Is a wise and commendable measure.

While tha scores mads by tha high scrnool boys In their annual field day events at tha Omaha Driving park the other day wera in no wis or instance world record breakers, they showed some good work on the part of the young men who made them and were altogether creditable. More than that, they will compare favorably with tha scores made by some of the In stitutions where the attendants average many more yeara and inchea in stature than do the Omaha youngsters. The high school ball team Is In line with the rest of the athletic, as has proven on several auspicious occasions, and this fall the boys propose to have a foot ball lineup that will surprise the natives.
