All roads traveled by bowlers are leading ti Milwaukee this week, when the Na tion Howling- tournament l.i being held. Tha lnfost report" arc that the meot will go Into history a the greatest bowling event ever held In the country- Interest In the tournament haa boen general. The Omaha delegation, eleven In number, left last even ing and will visit the Chicago alleya today, reaching Milwaukee on Monday morning with all sails act for aome of the $12,000 prise money offered. The Omaha team. In charsc of Captain Huntington, and the Wavcrleys, with Captain Reed at the wheel, will represent the Uate Clly. These teams were accompanied by Kit Carton, who will enter some, of the ulngle events. The name of the two teams, with averages for the enion up to last week, are as follows: OMAHA. Vlayer. Game-,.

Practically all of the Omaha delegation will enter the singles. In the five-men team events, forty-flv prises, ranging from $450 to $25, are offered; seventy-five prizes, from $200 to $10, ate offered In the two-men contests, while In the. singles 130 prizes are up, the money be ing from $00 to $6. "Dad" Huntington says, "Watch our smoke when we get on the al leys at Brewcrytown." He meant that the Omaha teams will be in on some of the money, and judging by the recent showlns made on the local alleya it la not unreas onable to expect Huntington's bunch will pan out and that the Omahans will strike "nnv elri" ft MllwanlrnB Borne notable scores were made on the association alleys during the last week. On Sunday Cochran made 801 pins In three successive games, which . was close to Hodges' record of 813. Then on Tuesday comcth one Frltscher, who knocked Hodges' score into smithereens by rolling 822plns In thfee games. Fritscher's games were mado by rolling 233 the first game, "S9 tho second and ,300 the third. He made fifteen xtralght strikes and mode twenty nine strikes out of thirty balls, one spare spoiling a run of thirty straight strikes. Ti.en on Wednesday noon one mighty knight of tho alleys, Harry Reed, rolled 845 In three successive games, which rec ord stands as the highest ever mado in Omaha and one which will not suffer by comparison anywhere. Reed's figures by games were, 267, JOO, and 278. During the game he had a ruii of twenty-one suc cessive strikes. By way of comparison it might be stated that the highest score made last year at the Cleveland tourna ment Is the Individual contests for three games was 647,. made by Martin Kern of St. Louis. Thje political pot In the American Bowling congress is shilling. One needs but to place his ear to the ground, make a little excavation In the snow and hear the rumblings. And from out the tumult can be heard the names of Karpf and Lang-try in no uncertain tones. It in claimed by the Langtry following that by retiring Secretary Karpf the American Bowling congress will be divorced from the manufacturers, who are alleged to be using Karpf and the sport as a means to an end, rather than trying to advance the sport for sports sake. The secretary's salary is $500 a year and It Is alleged Karpf haa been making a neat sum by prosltutlng his office. A. L, Langtry, who Is being groomed for the secretaryship, is an avowed sup porter of the individual membership plan as opposed to tho system now in vogue, .. . 1. 1 Y. p.fiill Pu n ,h. n ........ 1 tournament to become members of a recog nized city association. On the other hand It is said in Secretary Karpf's behalf that during his tan year's incumbency he has been an effeclent officer and has time and again proved his capability for the office. And it is also said that the manu facturers have done all they could to holp the sport, which, of course, would be but their natural purpose. Jt certainly can not be gainsaid that the manu facturers have In the past dons may things that' haa helped 'the sport along and which Neighborly Advice Freely Given by An Omaha Citizen. When one baa suffered tortures from a bad back and found out bow the aches and pains can be removed, advice is of untold value to friends and neigh bors, particularly when they know the statement Is absolutely correct The fol lowing neighborly advice comes from an Omaha resident: Mr. George Miller, No. 0U7 North Twenty-fifth avenue, painter In the Union Pacific railroad shops, says: Buckache, very slightly at first, con stantly Increased until It became a regular thing to have spells when 1 could neither sit stand or lie In any one position comfortably.

Sir James Thornycrnft had told him, he said, that by tho application of a motor car principle to maritime engineering they were able to get equal speed with one-tenth of the weight. Thlfl enabled marine engineers to look forward to an advance In speed at sea which would never havo been possible with the ordinary steam engine. Practical engineers are devoting themselves to th5 problem of substituting for steam engines, boilers, and coal a system of gns engines and gas producers, which will ensble them to secure economies of space and weight, with a great saving In working expenses. The future of the motor car manufacturer, continued Sir William White, must be a great one, because enterprising British nrma were not only learners, but were becoming leaders In that new Industry. The Executive committee of the National Lawn Tennis association, which Includes Holcomb Ward, Orange Tennis club; Will lam A. Larned, Annapolis Tennis club; Malcomb D. Whitman,, Crescent Athletic club; Dwight F. Davis. Bt. Louis, Mo.; Krelgh Collins, Kerwood Country club. Chicago; Raymond t. Little, West Side Tennis club. New York, and William J. Clothier, Harvard university, will meet In New Tork on February 27, to arrange the schedule for the coming year. Last year sixty-seven tournmcnts were arranged, but this year a dozen more will have to be provided for. Frank Gotch, the champion catch-as-catch-can wrestler, has returned to Buffalo from Cleveland, where he defeated Tom Jenkins for the second time recently. He states that his plans for the future are A trifle undecided, but that ho will visit New Tork within a short time In order to learn what chance there Is of meeting Hacken- Schmidt, the Russian wrestler, during his visit to this country. Gotch is without fear and has confidence In his wrestling ability. He does not believe that Hackenschmidt can beat him. The best evidence that he is sincere is his willingness to make a match. A substantial offer will be sent to Hackenschmidt at once. Gotch says Madi son Squsre Garden will be the place for the match. Plans are under consideration for an au tomobile racing clroult on the lines of the bicycle circuit of several seasons ago. If the scheme goes through there will be tracks In Chicago, Detroit, Rochester, Buf falo, Syracuse, Cleveland, Providence and New York City. The plan was first dis cussed at Ormonde Beach during the week of racing there. It Is proposed to have two meets of three days each In the various cities on the circuit, with the exception of Chicago and New York. The tracks at the latter places will receive a week's sanction. The schedule will be arranged In such man ner as to give a spring and fall meet In each city. Many manufacturers have been appronched, and have agreed to enter from one to five cars for these races, and tho plan will be similar to that prevailing dur ing the height of the bicycle racing craze. Entries for the annual national champion ship bowling tournament of the American bowling congress at Milwaukee were well filled. The contests will continue until Feb ruary 26. More than 200 teams will take part in the two-man contest and the larger team contests will add to this list consid erably. Many of the bowlers are entered In the Individual competitions and will also double up In five-man play. The' prize list la the largest In the history of the Amer ican Bowling congress. The list In the dif ferent class events aggregate more than $19,000. This amount Is said to be $3,300 !n excess of the prize money of the last con gress, which was held in Cleveland. The sum of $3,600 is offered for Individual prizes numbering 150, ranging from $200 for first. $175 for second, $130 for third, $125 for fourth and $100 for the fifth prize, down to smaller amounts, and a large number of $5 prizes for the tail-ehders. For the five-men list forty-five prizes, totalling $3,500, Is hung up, headed by a $400 prize. Second money Is $360, third $300 and so on down to a number cf $25 prizes. The two-men team prize list totals $3,000, beginning with $io for the first, $225 for the second, $200 for the third, rang ing down to a seventy-fifth, prize of $10. In addition to cash there will be a number of gold medals awarded. There will be five medals for five-men teams, two for the two- men teams and a championship medal for the winner of the Individual contest. As far as the actual bowling Is concerned, everything possible will be done to accom modate the Increased number of contestants at this moot. With fourteen alleys, there need be no bowling after 10:30 or 11 o'clock at night and 9 In the morning. When the official schedule Is prepared by a committee composed of one man selected by the Amer ican Bowling Congress and two by the tour nament company, sufficient time will be al lowed for each team and bowler, but there will be no deviation from the time set by the schedule. This will do away with the inconveniences that marred the Cleveland meet, when the management was two hours behind the schedule from the first night, and bowling was going on until the small hours of the morning and was resumed two hours before noon. The Exposition building, where the tournament is being held, is for the purpose, the most desirable building ever offered for a like event. In addition to perfect lighting, the heating appliances, Its 60,000 square feet of room on the main floor space for the fourteen alleys, seats upward of 5,000 spectators, allows for a spacious palm garden and other entertainment features, all under one roof. To offset the barn-like effect of the interior of so large a building suitable decorations have been arranged, so that the building is not only a commodious and comfortable one, but at tractive to the eye. Enough trotting circuits have been formed and dates selected to Indicate that harness racing during the coming week will break all records for number of meetings and amount of purses. None of the former circuits have gone out of existence, while several new ones have already been organ ized. The Grand Circuit lost Brighton Beach, but gained Cleveland and Syracuse for 1906. The Grand Western clrculit will lose no tracks, and may add two or three to Its list of 1901. The Lake Erie circuit, which was organised recently at James town, N. Y., Is next in Importance, having a large membership. What this circuit is to the east, the "Gas Belt" Is to the mid dle west. The latter circuit will open at Lima, O., July 4. and close at Elwood, Ind., In September. It will make tho purses not less than $400 or $600. The Iowa Central circuit, an important chain of half-mile tracks, will have additional members, as will the Illinois circuits. Among new trotting circuits organized are the Southern, the Great Northern, one on the Paclflo coast, and the circuit headed by Pittsburg. The outlook Is unusually promising all over the country, except In Missouri, where there Is some danger of the repeal of what Is known ss the "breed ers' law," forbidding speculation on race tracks Although nothing definite Is re ported from New England, the prospects ana good, and there Is talk of even giving a harness meeting on the once famous Old Orchard (Me.) track, which ha been unused for several years It Is clearly intimated at Cambridge that the Harvard athletic committee will either follow out the views of President Charles W. Eliot on Intercollegiate foot ball, or that a new committee will be appointed by the Harvard corporation. There Is uo longer sny question that the Harvard president's Ideas on font ball are shared by a majority of the corporation. A majority of the five members, exclusive of President Eliot, believe that college football should be BO modified as to d"tect and if possible punish any Intentional brutally. This means that Harvard men will either secure a more open game or that the schedule will be very considerably modified. The faculty will wait some time to lt th committee get Its bearings. It will set this academic year, with a view to mak ing sure that President Eliot's views are put Into practice. In addition, the cor poration objects to the "Commercial'' features of the modern game of football. It feels that It is an outrage on amateur athletics that the Ftadltim should be run entirely as a money making Institution. As soon as the debt on the Stadium Is paid admission to games will be free to every Harvard undergraduate, and the space allotted to the general public will be merely what the Harvard men do not want. Some charge may be mado for reserved seats for the purpose of keeping up a small athletic fund, but otherwise the Stadium will be free to Harvard men at every game played there. The cor poration is practically a unit on this proposition. This means that the big sum paid out for trainers, rubbers and costly athletlo outfits will either be raised by subscription or not at all. The outlook is that the athletic committee will cut down expenses ruthlessly. It Is felt to be ridiculous that while Harvard has to reduce salaries of Instructors, the sum of $40,000 can be spent on some form of athletics. Entries are coming In daily for ths French elimination trials which will glvo French cars the right to race for the grand prize and the Gordon Bennett cup Some dissatisfaction, It appears. Is felt with regard to the entry fees. Meantime Austria and Switzerland have, In addition to England, pronounced against the de cision of the French club to hold the two races simultaneously, but so far Germany has made no official declaration. ft Is considered that tho French club acted dis courteously In not officially bringing the scheme before the other clubs, instead of springing It on them nt the last moment through the columns of the dally press. The Automobile club of Great Britain has not yetdealt with the reply received from the French club, but the arguments con tained therein are not likely to convince them that they are wrong In protesting. The strongest argument of the French club Is that In 1901 and 19Q? the Gordon Bennett race was run in conjunction with other big road races; but they overlooked the fact that these races were on a stralght-away route, not on a circuit as this year's race will be, and this point Is considered vl vital importance by the English club. Coach Lush, formerly of the Cleveland American league nine, has now been in charge of the base ball candidates at Yale for two weeks and the development of this year's team In his hands will be watched closely to sec what the result of professional coaching Is to be. His ad vent marks the beginning of a new system at New Haven, for although there have been professional coaches there beforo they have never handled' the team di rectly for the season. Yale's base ball profesHlonal coaches have Included Clark son, Nichols, Hickman and Murphy, but none of them ever began work as Mr. Lush does. All except Mr. Murphy were with the players simply in the cage, leav ing the team to Join their nines as soon as tho league season opened. Dr. Mur phy was allowed to do no coaching. He simply handed over his suggestions to Cap tain Winslow. Mr. Lush Is a coach as Murphy Is for the track team and Kennedy Is for the crew, and he will be with the base ball men till the season closes. With Mr, Lush comes a system of coaching which puts base ball jin the same plane in point of organization with the other sports of Yale. Walter Camp Is the head advisory coach, and Captain Bowman will run things as field captain. Under the new system the battery men and the fresh men inflelders have gone to work already, but the general squad will do nothing until February 23. There are forty-seven men at work now. Including fifteen batteries. They are In three squads, Messrs. Bow man and Lush lead the coaching, and the veterans of last year's nine, O'Brien, Cote and others, assist. Yale has four places to fill on the team, Including working up a new battery. Two catchers seem to stand out above the crowd as especially promising, Arthur Erwln and Frank Las ley. Erwln was the first 'varsity substi tute catcher last year. Among the pitch ers. Bell and Jackson, both of whom got a "Y" last year, are In the lead, but the freshman team had three of the best pitchers a Yale class team ever possessed In" Brlsko, Fargo and Pratt. They are all getting practical 'points from Bowman and Lush and coming along faBt. Yale Is pretty nearly certain of its outfield with Bruce Smith, Cote and Barnes. Tho last named was graduated last June, but he Is back In the law school. Perhaps the most promising candidate for third lk Captain Church of the freshman nine last year. Carter of the basket ball team Is another promising substitute, and Camp, who was shortstop of the freshman team last spring, will make a hard try for the Infield place. He Is a brother of Stewart Camp, who won Yale's captain In 1900. Captain Bowman will go to first and stick there. He Is a star there and bats twice as well when he plays there as he does when he Is pitching. He hopes to be able to keep out of the box all the year. Hay skamp will never play third base again. He may be tried at second and he may go to the outfield, but It will be a long day before Yale sends a lefthanded thrower to the third corner again. Alfred de Oro has accepted the challenge from Jerome Keogh for the new world's championship pool emblem and the contest must take place before March 10, forty days from date of challenge. De Oro won Uie emblem In the St. Louis tourney In Decem ber, later defeating Grant Eby, who had challenged him. The game with Keogh will probably take place In his Buffalo rooms. Keogh's friends have offered to placo $3,000 on their fuvorite at reasonable odds. De Oro's strong game In the tour nament and against Eby was in his strength at the finish. Keogh plays a faster gome than Eby at the start, but Is not of tho same quality as a finisher. De Oro Is a most spectacular pool player in the world and his remarkable ability in combination shots when the balls are bunched has brought the spectators to their feet many times to cheer the "Cuban wonder." In the St. Louis tournament De Oro made barely four misses In fifty shots of this nature, which no other player would attempt. Billiard players of experience and patrons of tho game who have closely followed the form of the experts In recent years have been greatly amused at various statements made anent the recent exhibition games of Schaefer and Willie Hoppe, In the south and west, In the result of which contents It Is made to appear that because Hoppe was a frequent winner the old champion has either "gone back" In his playing or Hoppe Is now entitled to the championship. Schaefer has been 111 for several months and his trip with Hoppe was against the wishes of his physician, although the Wi zard was convalescent. Schaefer Is now In practice In Chicago, and a friend of his asks that opinion as to hut form be sua pemk'd until the result of a match game with Slosson shall have been decided. Ru dolphe had a similar setback, but won a championship In 1875, while Slosson and Vlgnaux have lost their "stroke" only to "tome ugaln." De Oro, the greatest pool player the game has ever had. was III for two or three years, but now. at Srhacfer's ngc. is playing brlHUnt pool. Slosson, whom some critics forget in boosting Hoppe. has played fifty games with Schaefer, with hardly one game difference between them. Carpenter's Letter (Continued Prom Page Five.) sons of your success In life, senator?" "I think so. I Imve not been backward In takii.g my share uf the work and have been willing to l.jlp the other fellow when I could do so. An Important element of busi ness success, It seems to me.

There is no use In making enemies where one can keep friends, and the march along the path of llfo can be made without bull dozingif I might use that word or forcing one's fellows into the bushes. In my sena torial career I have had but one personal altercation on the flxrs of congress. That was with General Burnslde at the time he asked for an appropriation for the celebra tion at Yorktown. "I opposed that bill and in my speech against it said the gentlemen on the other side of the chamber were always for the o'.d flag and an appropriation. General Burnslds took that as a reflection on his personal In tegrity, and he made a bitter speech in reply. "As he sat down I got the floor. Several of the senators feared there would be trou ble and moved to adjourn. I replied that I had the right to the floor and that I In tended to make my speech. I did make it and in it referred to General Burnslde, say ing that no one In the United States would think of casting any reflection upon his honor, and as for myself I would be the last to do so. I complimented him In high terms and said that I was sorry that he had misinterpreted my remarks. As I sat down Lamar camo over to me and threw his arms around my shoulder and said: " 'Cockrell! Do you know, I would give my skin if I could control my temper as you can yours." "The next day General Burnslde apolo gized to me." Boodle in Congress. The conversation here turned to Senator Cockrell's work in congress. He was, you know, for six years one. of the committee on claims and part of the time its chair man. He has, I think, been connected with the committee on military affairs throughout his career. He was put on the appropriations committee about twenty-four years ag8, and has been work ing on that committee ever since. He has, in short, been connected with the chief business of tho senate and is known every where as one of its most efficient work ers. He kiiows all about the Ins and outs of legislation, how things are done and by what means. During the talk I asked as to boodle In congress, saying: "Senator, you represent Missouri, which has become known as a boodle-taking and boodle-reforming state. I want to know about tlio senate. Is it an honest body?" "I think it is," was the reply. "Have you ever, during your thirty years of service here, been upproached, directly or Indirectly, by any man or corporation wnn uie orrcr of a bribe?" "No. Not once. I don't think much money is spent In influencing congress in that way. If It is spent, it is wasted; for the money docs not get to the men for whom it Is intended. A senator might do something to oblige a constituent or in the way of sympathy. But for money! No. As graft goes, I do not believe it ex ists here." Folk and tlie Hoodie Issue.

MdDDD Dear Sirs : I didn't find out that I Lad contracted Contagious Blood Poison until it had made considerable hesdwsy, and fortunately for me the friend that 1 first consulted had had some experience with the disease, and advised me to take S. S. S.. so I didn't fool with anv doctors. but began at once the use of vour medicine, taking it as di rected. My friend told me to stick to it, and that was what I did, and got along splendidly from the very first, and my re covery was rapid. I took, only atout one dozen bottles, snd am now ss'well as ever. When I began S. S. S. my fare was so full of sores snd eruptions thst I could not shave, and cow there is not a blotch or pimple on my body, o4 Oskley St., Evansville, Ind.

Contagious Blood Toison, sometimes known as "THE BAD DISEASE," begins usually with a little pimple or sore, and this may be the only external evidence for several weeks; but soon the glands in the neck and groins, swell, pimples and red eruptions break out on the breast and other part" of the body, the mouth and throat get sore, the tongue heavily coated, the hair falls out, and as the contamination more thoroughly saturates the system, copper-colored spots and other severe symptoms make their appearance. Too often the sufferer turns to the Mercury and Potash treatment and smothers and hides the disease in the system, and when they are left off he finds that this masking of the disease has concentrated its strength, and it breaks forth again with consuming'. , t intensity. Mercury and Potash produce Mercurial Rheumatism, necrosis of the bones and inflammation of the Stomach and Bowels. S. S.
