Was nttougly Sapportedl ay the Chlpaso Braves. Watch our smoke. Referring to th Omaha Bowling team, which did itself I proud at Milwaukee lt week and landed f eighth place In the five-men team contests 0 In the national bowline tournament. There wore 2y teams to rompet with and It It with pardonable pride that Omaha bowlers may point to 'Dad1' Huntington's team and say, "Well done, thou food and faith ful bowlers. Whalll yer have?" The Omaha team made a score of 2.711. The Individual scores were mads as fol lows: 1st, 2d. Id. Tofle. Frltcher in 1,4 174 6M Neale 1X1 188 171 40 UJerde 2t4 14 171 W t.ntiinll!r w 11 635 llunungtoii luH 1M 171 61 Totals ..( 921 939 862 2.7U Tli Omaha team came within two pint of seventh place and only nine from sixth place. From first place Huntlnrtoa's bowlers were only eighty-two pins behind In the totals. incidentally the Omaha will bring back $226 of the prise money, or rather what thoy have left of that amount after buying a few sacks of pea nuts and a cigar or two to celebrate tho occasion with. In connection wltn the showing just made by the Omaha bowling team It may not be amis to again refer to the scores made lust May on the local association alleys by this team. In one series of three games the toam made a,280 pins, which has been recognized at the highest score of the year for throe successive gtiraes by a five- man team. The team also mads during th same month a score of 3,232. Thla goes to show the strength of the team and to place Omaha- in more secure position In the bowling world. 4 The Waverley team from Omaha played In hard luck on Tuesday evening, making -r nfA s 9 Kite O 9 OA aA. a aw. boys at the association's alleys think the Waverley had cold feet, stage fright or something of the kind. At any rate, the Waverley score has been posted at the alleys, with a deep band of mourning around the figures. Weber of the Waver ley team, the first of the Omaha delega tion to return from the front, says he wlt- 1 nessed the games bowled by the Omaha 1 team Wednesday evening. He describes the scene as an enthusiastic one and one fraught with peculiar circumstances. Some ill feeling has been engendered against both of the Qunther teams from Chicago on account of the report that one of the teams had bought two expert ulavers ex- ' pressly for the tournament: Tho dunther team No. 2 made its high score on Tues day evening, so that when the last squad canto to bowl Wednesday evening the Omaha team was picked as tho only team left that had a chance to defeat the Gunthera. All the Chicago teams and oth ers cheered the Omahas In preference to the other teams of that squad. This, of course, encouraged Huntington and his band of bowlers, who were offered the whole town of Chicago If they would UT feat the Ounthert. - In the two-men and single contests the Omaha bowler were not in the running to any extent, '"There was never so much Interest la Indoor athletics at Bellevue college as this winter," says Coach Flpal. "A squad of thirty men is working hard for the two Indoor meets scheduled with the Omaha Young Men's Christian association team for March 11 at Bellevue and at Omaha on March 18. Borne of the team are new re cruits, but are making it interesting in some events for many of the older guard. Carey has a tremendous spring In the high Jump and la now being coached on form, which he Is developing f nt. Ho I' plckM for a. topnotcher in the high jump. Sal lenburg and Egnew are working hard on the hurdles, while Rice and Notaw are get--ting Into fcrm In the long distance run. Of the older members of tho team K earns, Unison and C. 8. Rice are making better score than they did lust season. Benson Is making of himself a formidable oppo nent In all-round track work. Bellevue college never was stronger In the way of banket ball teams and never was interest in the game Keener at the college than tni ecuson. The young women's team has lost but one game this season thus far, while the men's team has won six out of eight played. The young women' team will make a short trip during the Aret week of March, when they will meet the Tarklo college team and other. The college takes J particular pride thla season in the ath p letlo prowess of Its freshman class, whloh , excels In this respect all previous claair. wiin one exception ins mrmDer or ins men's basket ball team are freshmen. While base ball practice has not yet been called, the matter of a base ball team Is already on tho tapis, with the result that thirty-five men have offered themselves as candidates for the team. The coach and manager are , working on the bass ball schedule and such teams as the Nebraska, South Dakota and Cretghton universities anTankton and Morulngalde college are already Included In the list of teams to be met on the diamond this season. The athlMlo board at Bellevue college feels elated over the present Interest manifested in the athletic welfare of the Institution. A new era In athletics bas dawned at Belle vue collea-e." Now that the besebajT a axon of 1906 is practically tinder way The Bee herewith furnishes the make up of the1 teams which will utruggle for the pennant In the big leagues this year. There are many new men oi the roster of the several club this ymr, showing that the manager of each team has been busy einoe the close of last season securing the best player or player that money could buy In order to strengthen the club.

The board acted fairly In the matter. It nnw all thlncs offered as evl- - - dence into consideration, and then rendered the decision with the characterise aoie ness of the greatest jurist of the highest courts In the United State. The word of the ball player who depends on ball playing for his living waa given free precedence over that of the gamblers, some of whom will resort to any mean to win. The gamblers' evidence was taken with due allowanoo of the source, and Mr Taylor was acquitted. On hit own admission that he. owing to a night with the boys, waa unfit to pitch on that July 30, Taylor wa accorded hi dues, a fine of 1300. Returning automoblllsts from the winter racing carnivals at Ormonde Beach and Cuba have brought enthusiastic report of the raclpg and Incidentally the motor boat contest on Lake Worth. They are a unit In agreeing on the success of ths meet on the Florida east coast, and also apeak in term of praise of the Cuban carnival, making allowance for the fact that it was the first attempt of the kind on the Island republic, and, under the circumstances, was conducted with considerable success. There are those who claim hat if credit Is to be awarded for the better conducted affair of the two the palm would go te the Cuban course, despite the advantage Of the Ormonde-Daytona beach over the narrow road course upon which the Cuban Quaker Maid lye J .1 Awarded the Gold Medal at he Louisiana Purchase Expo ition for Purity. Quality and Arfcction of Age 7 FOB BALK AT ALL LIADINO SJAKaY CAVES AMD DBVO STOKES S.HIRSCH& CO., Kansas City, Mo. THE WHISKEY WITH A REPUTATION races were held. The conversation of the returned antolsts from the south, either as actual competitors r merely spectator lead to the opinion that notw linstana.nK the natural advantages of the ocean beach course, much was wanting In the waj ot a perfect carrying out of the race pro gram. With hardly an exception, ths answer is an aftlrmative tno when th question I asked if they will be In attend ance at the meets next winter. One of the arrivals from the races said, In speaking upon the subject: "The sport has gained much In popularity during the last month, and I expect that nest winter will see a revival of the meets, both at Ormonde and Havana on even larger and mote success ful lines than those of 190S. It cannot be truthfully said that there were not details lacking at both courses, but despite these and the unfortunate accidents, the meets were a success. Next winter will witness more foreign entiles and more broken rec ords, unless I greatly miss my guess." - Several changes have been made In Yale's base ball schedulo. Lehigh has cancelled Its game for May , and the University of Vermont has been given May 23 at New Haven. Brown wanted Yale to play In Providence on Decoration day, while the Yale team wishes a game at home, and so the Brown gam orignally planned for that holiday wa abandoned. This will give Yale only two games with Brown this year, instead of the usual three. Yale has taken on Andover academy for Its Decoration day game, which will be the first played In New Haven since the local Grand Army protested against Yale playing at home two years ago. The base ball committee of the Univer sity of Pennsylvania have selected Harry Davis, first baseman on the Athletic' team, as batting coach for the Red and Blue nine this spring. He will devote the greater part of his time to them, but will also superintend the work of the fresh men. Owing to the small cage which can be placed on the floor of the gymnasium, nothing much but batting can be prac ticed until outdoor work begins. Penn sylvania's team the last two seasons have been poor handlers of the stick, but Coach Coogan hopes, with the assistance of Davis, to turn out a strong nine In this respect. The most Important feature of the inter school meet to be held at Philadelphia April 29 will be the presence of a number of relay lean and crock Individual per formers from the wore Important western universities. This will be the first time In a number of years that the western and eastern college athlete have met In a gen eral meet, end because of this fact th Pennsylvania meet will almost equal the Intercollegiate In Importance. Chicago, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota have all accepted invitation to send relay teams and have also signified their Intention of ending teams of Individual star to com pete In the Individual events. Chicago will bring on Its star quarter-mller. Wisconsin and Minnesota will make an effort to land the one end two-mile championship. Yale, Harvard, Cornell and Pennsylvania will all have teams In the one-mils relay to at tempt to prove the superiority of the east, and nearly all the eastern colleges of Im portance have relay teams entered In the different class and distance events. Most of them also have at least one star whom they will send down to try to lake a sharo ot the Individual honors. One of the fea tures of the event will be the relay races between preparatory schools. These have been divided Into three classes and from the number of entries already received there hould be a large number of close con test. The Navy Athletic association will shortly prdpose to the Army athletic authorities the procuring of suitable grounds of their own for future Annapolis-West Point foot ball contests. It Is suggested that a. United States government reservation in the vi cinity of Philadelphia be used. Stands and dressing rooms to cost $M,000, it is sug gested, should be erected. This amount, it i thought, can easily be raised by charging for admission to the first game, subsequent admission to be by Invitation, as heretofore. Great Britain ha five first-class golf Jink" which meet with every requirement of a championship course. They are St. Andrews, Prestwlck, Sandwich, Hoylake and Muirfleld, and theamateur and open championships are never played anywhere else, although there are many other fine elghteen-hole course throughout the king dom. During ths ten year' life of the United State Golf association the amateur championship ha been held on ten differ ent courses, as follows: Newport, Bhlnne- cock, Chicago, Morris County, Onewentsla. Garden City, Atlantic City, Glen View, Nassau and Baltursol. The time seems to be coming, however, when the American golfers will follow in the footsteps of Great Britain and settle upon a half dozen of the very best of the championship courses. In fact, they have already shown a tend ency In that direction by selecting the Chi cago Golf club course at Wheaton, 111., for this year's amateur championship. It Is one of the very best courses In the coun try and on a par with such first-class championship courses, as Myopia, Garden City, Olen View. Nassau and Baltursol when It Is at Its best. These, courses are all up-to-date and the time may yet come when the amateur and open events will be held only on these six course. In fact, tha open championship this year will be held over the Myopia links. The other associate club' courses are regarded as almost too easy for these two events, but very suitable for the women's championship. The ten open championship have been played reapectively at Newport, Bhlnnecock, Wheaton, Myopia. Baltimore. Wheaton Myopia. Garden City, Baltursol and Glen Vlw. Bo it will be seen that this event In all but three Instances ha been held on one of the six first-class oourse already mentioned, while on only five occasions ha the amateur event been decided on other than these six star courses. Adequate rules to aovern th . .,... billiard competitions for the national cham pionship, which has Just been won by Conklln, at Chicago, have been tho subject of discussion by leading amateur of the port for the last two week. On his re turn from Chicago J. Ferdinand Poggen burg of the LUderkrans club of New York and president of tha Katinnai .. of Amateur Billiard Players said: "As has been the case In ell of the recent tourna ments lor the chamnlonshin n mi.. ound that covered all the points and In consequence tne recognised standard rules were taken as a basis and many changes mad to conform to amateur usage. These ruie were copied and then each competitor for the emblem sianed th an additional copy for his use and to fa miliarise mm with the varlou points do Cided upon. Of course, rnxra i,. soms authoritative set of rules, and It now earn prooaoie that the National associa tion will take some action In thla r..n. at It next meeting. A an Instance of what I mean, the old rule state that In case the ball rest upon the Una In balk-llne It shall be declared in.' Thl I obviously wrong. The rule wa changed for Chicago ao that it allowed th referee to deride whether or not In hi opinion th major portion of the bull rested within or without the aouar nii so rule. Th old rule make It necessary ior a competitor to look after his own In auun caning rouis and shoctlim with the wrong ball. Thl rule wa aluo rnanged so that the comoeiltnr riiim tub hi seat when not actually playing at the taoie ana leave these and all similar noin to the referee. It was tha fall serve thl rule that led to the difference between Onrdner and Threshle In th tour nament recen'.ly finished. each man mad th mistake of shooting with hi opponent's ball. Then a rule was framed that Is dis tinctly amateur, but we believe that It I needed. It provides for the referee clean' Ing the balls and table during the progress of a match If In his Judgment It Is neces sary, and one of the players request hlin eo to do. I think that thl rule I a good one, for th chalk drop on th table from the cue during a long contet. and some times It sticks to th ball, causing them to roll off and making some hot impos sible. These are only Instances of what Is needed In th way of rule reform. nd It Is to be hoped that the day la not far distant when all amateur competition Will be held under a uniform set of rules," In commenting upon th general low average runs made by the competitors In ths championship series at Chicago. Peg genburg aald that It was due to the great amount of safety play by the westerners, "frightened bllllarde," he called It, which made high runs Impossible, but waa cal culated to piny an Important part In the winning of contests. The Cornell crews have again resumed training on the machine, after a two weeks' recess during the examinations and Junior weeks, ibout sixty men are reporting reg ulrtriy for prnctlce. but hard work will have to be done to develop a championship 'virelty. Only three of last year s doi ar hack. These vacancies will have to be filled from last year's four and freshman. AH told, there are only about eighteen or twenty experienced men for the vacant positions. There seems to be an abundance of good material for the freshmen, how ever. The management of the Dartmouth base ball team has Iteued the completed schedule for the coming seaaon. Twenty-eight games will be played, fifteen of which Will take place on tho home ground. The schedule I as follows: April 19. Tuft at Medford; JO, Exeter at Exeter; a. Andover at Andover; 3. Holy Cress nt Worcester; 14, University of Maine at Hanover; 28, Brown at Provi dence; 19, Harvard at Cambridge; May 1, Holy Cross at Hanover; S, Amherst at Hanover: 10, Brown at Hanover; 11, Roche ter at IJnnover; 12, Lehigh at Hanover; 13, William'- at Hanover; 15, Syracuse a.t Han over: 17, Tuft at Hanover; 19, Carlisle at Hanover; 20. Carlisle at Hanover; 24. Princeton at Princeton; 25, Lehigh at South Bethlehem, Pa.: 2d, Lafayett at EastOn, Pa.: 27. Amhert at Amherst; 29. Tuft at Medford: 90, at Worcester; June 1. George town at Hanover; t, Harvard at Hanover: . Wesleyan at Mlddletown; 7, Yale at New Haven; 9, Columbia at Hanover: 10, Colum bia at Hanover. . The Amateur Athletic1 union has been notified that the New England association ha suspended the Yale university basket ball team. The action was taken because of the fact that the collegian had played the team of Eaat Hampton. Mae., which I claimed to be a semi-professional five. This bars the Yale players from all amateur competitions held under the Amateur Athletic union throughout the United States. The decision affects F. H. Rock well, ths Yale quarterback, who played on fho basket ball team during the game In question. The other players affected are William Barber, G. Kinney, F. M. Carter, W. F. Church, E. A. Anderson and A. C. Ortmayer. The ' Yale team holds second place In the Intercollegiate Basket Ball league, which Columbia heads, and it will be very interesting to watch the attitude of the other colleges toward the disfranchised team. The other teams all recognise the general oversight, and their member ere registered In tho Amateur Athletic union. If these players continue to play against the disqualified Yale team they also wilt b suspended from the AmateUr Athletic union. It Is probable that they will uphold their fellow collegian and refuse to take any ac tion that will tend to break up the Inter collegiate league in spite of th displeasure of the national organization. 4- Secretary Townsend of th Omaha Gun club Is receiving encouraging return from the Invitations ha recently sent out . an nouncing the annual spring tournament of the club, which event will be held March 20, 21 and 22. In the five-men team con tests teams will be here from South Da kota, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, three from Nebraska, and two local teams. For the best individual score In these contests a fine gold watch Is offered, while the win ning team will be awarded the T. I. Comb olid silver cup. On Thursday afternoon the new Leggett automatic blue rock trap were installed and tested. Many of the club members commend th new trap highly and have already found tbein valuable acquisition to the ground. . The Omaha Gun club is holding practice shoot regularly now, so far as th weather will permit, and are looking forward with In tcrcst to the annual spring shoot. Pitcher Eddie Quick has received a letter from hi friend, Emery Knode, the vl fielder, who will have a try-out here with the Rangers next month. Knode made a good showing last season with an ind pendent Pennsylvania team both a an out fielder and at the bat. He Is now prac tlcing Indoor base ball In the "cage" at the J'ohn Hopkln university at Baltimore. at which Institution a number of the Na tional leaguers are working out. Knode is 9 years of uge and weigh 183. Friends of Frank Parmale have received letters from that popular sportsman aaylng he will return to Omaha next month from Rockville, Tex., where he ha been for two years. Parma lee- waa one of a bunch of marksmen who mad a tour some year ago and opened the eye of the easterner at Madison Square garden.

By its record of fortv vears of cures S. S. S. has demonstrated its superiority over all other blood purifiers and is known and recognized everywhere as the best The' King of Blood Furthers. The people everywhere endorse it, ana tncre are lew homes where this trreat remedy is not known and used, and today there are thousands in all parts of the country who have been cured of diseases by its use and who are dailv recommendincr it to those who are in need of a blood purifier. It has held the confidence of the public for this long period of time, and is more in favor now than ever ' before, because it has always done and is doing now all that is claimed for it, and 'S. S. S. for the blood" has grown to be a household sayiug. One of its greatest claims to the title of ''The Kiug of Blood Purifiers" is that it is purely vegetable, being made entirely from roots, herbs and barks of the forests and fields, selected for their purifying and healing action on the blood and their fine , tonic , properties for building up and strengthening the entire system. Not so with the usual blood medicines, for they contain Potash and other strong mineral ingredients that derange the stomach and digestion, disaereeablv affect the bowels, and otherwise damage the health. ' Bad blood is responsible for most of the ailments of mankind. When from any cause the Liver, Kidneys, Bowels or other organs of bodily "vVaste become torpid, dull or Sluggish in their action, and fail to carry out the poisons which are being constantly formed in the system, these poisons are absorbed by the blood. As this vital fluid is the very life of the body, nourishing -and supplying strength, through its circulation, to every muscle, nerve, bone and tissue, disease in some form is sure to follow when it becomes contaminated. ' " ' ivczema, letter, Acne, rimpies, ijous, etc., while they show on the skin have an un derlying cause which is far deeper a poi soned blood supply and until this is cor rected and the blood made pure arid strong, the distressing itching and burning as well as the disfiguring, humiliating symptoms will remain to torment the sufferer. - No amount of salves, washes, skin foods, rouge. etc, can reach the trouble; a real blood remedy is required. S. S. S. cures these and all Other skin diseases, and when it has cleansed the blood of the poisons and impurities thd cure is permanent and lasting. Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula, Chronic Sores or Ulcers and Con tagious Blood Poison are all deep-seated blood diseases. When the blood becomes contami nated with the poisons producing these diseases, the entire circulation grows polluted and vitiated, and these painful and dangerous diseases will continue to grow worse and more dan gerous until this vital fluid is cleansed and made strong and healthy again. In all these disorders S. S. S. has proved itself a perfect remedy, and has well earned the title of "The King of Blood Purifiers." It goes down into the blood and forces out all poison of every kind, all waste and foreign matter, and makes it pure and health-sustaining as nature intended, curing the disease permanently. Nothing reaches inherited blood taint or old chronic troubles like S. S. S., and being a strictly vegetable remedy it can be taken by old or young without fear of bad after-effects or injury in any way to the system. . Not only is S. S. S. a blood purifier and system builder of the highest order, but a tonic and appetizer without an equal, and is unexcelled in cases of general debility, loss of appetite, weakness, that tired, run-down condition, lack of energy and force, and other distressing complaints common to Spring and Summer months. If you have any blood trouble write us about it, stating the case fully, and our physi cians will help you to get rid of it by free medical advice and will send books on the different diseases, which contain valuable information, without charge.
