save our customers fully

the leading features of our business , and are now devoting our en-
lire second floor to our millinery department , making it the hand
somest , largest and best lighted millinery department in the citv. We

About Hntio HiinnerH.
Brynun , ot the Sioux Cltys , is unquestion
ably the lloelcst .runner in the Western
association. Ho can cover ono hundred yards
in a straightaway run In less than eleven
trconds. There Is no other player in this
association that can duplicate this perform
ance. Of the Omalius , Crooks is u good
starter from the plain , nnd a good start Is a
big thing in making u base. What Crooks
weald do under favorable circumstances anil
on a good cinder path'Is another thing. Ho
does not ciulm to bo n sprinter , Coonoy can
JmUo his llttlo duck legs go like a pinion-rod
of a locomotive trying to makn up lost tinio.
Ho leaves the pinto oji a bunt or a short hit
like an urrow from the bow , and it crowds
an In Holder to throw him out oven on a
cleanly handled ball. Lcighton Is a fast
mail , and may develop Into what the gamin
call a lulla-coolejr. lie runs in good style ,
gets un on his toes and mukes for first
like a ttiorouf hbrcd. Jack Mcssltt is a ban
ner base runner , and ha ROCS llko a whirl
wind , Is a jrood slider and makes many a
base that would ba lost to a less agile man ,
Andrew * , Strauss and Naglo are futr base
runners , and llttlo WlllU is a dandy. Clove-
find Ja too bit ; to muko flrit class time , but
his line hitting will makeup for this. Proes
ser surely hns the material in him for a
llyer. Kennedy is not a fast man , but Daddy
Clarke , at times , runs well.
The last Issue of the Now York Sporting
Times contains an excellent portrait of J. S.
McCormick , of this city , and president of
Western association , accompanied by the fol
lowing sketch :
J. S. McCormlck , president of the Western
association was born in l&8r nt Cadiz , O. He
settled in Omaha when he was twenty-two
years of age and began business there as u
surveyor. That calling , however.he did not
follow a great while , us he saw u promising
opening in the grocery trade. It was in this
branch of buslneso that ho laid the founda
tion for his fortune. Mr. McCormlck was
quick to perceive that Omnhn would develop
into ono of the lending cities of the west ,
nnd ho laid his plains accordingly. He was
engaged in freighting on the plains nnd later
secured largo government contracts , dis
charging his obligations promptly and credit
ably. Ho was elected president of the Omaha
club in the fall of 18S7 , and was re-elected at
the last annuul meeting. At the Minne
apolis meeting of the association ho was
chosen president and treasurer. Mr. Me-
Cormlck is n popular man in all that Is desir
able which that word implies. The Sporting
Times has had hard work td secure his pho
tograph , us ho was averse to the publicity
intq which his picture In this paper will lift
him. His regara for the paper , however ,
triumphed ovur his disinclination , and our
readers may see him on another page us
Umpire Sandy MoDerinott. ,
The Western association's now umpire ,
Sandy McDermott , will cut a queer figure
when in the field this season , If what is said
of him Is true. Here Is the fairy tale that
comes from Chicago : "Sandy has had built
for use during the tomlntr season a helmet
nnd n cuirass of stout bull's hide , steel
bound and brass riveted , which shield his
head and body. The suit is ingeniously con
structed to yield with the movements of the
wearer , whllo light but strong steel ribs offer
stout resistance to assaults fiom without.
The helmet is lined with u combination of
steel bars and springs and cottort wool In such
a way that not oven the most powerful blow
from an irate batsman would bo felt on the
wearer's bead. In fuct , the only vulnerable
spot in the helmet is the hole necessurilv loft
for the umpire's mouth , uud oven this is in n
measure protected by a wlro ncttlntr. For
his legs , Sandy bus devised a covering some
what rcRonibllng cricketers' foils , but much
thicker and stiongcr , constructed of heavy
bull's hide. "

The Westoin association race for 18SO
gives promise now of being uioro closely
contested than over before In the hlsto ry of
the organization. When the hot ol ese of
last season Is taken into consideration this is
saying a good deal. The additions to the
plavlng strength of the Mllwuukeos , Den-
vors , St. Joes , St. Pauls uml Ouialms , indi
cate thnt the struggle this year will
bo a rema-kablu ono , Bucnuso the
Sioux Citys , Des Monies nnd Minne
apolis teams nni not included In tbo above is
110 assertion that they will not bo In the
tight. It goes without saving thnt Moiton
and his wild hustlers will bo right up among
the leaders nil the time , If they do not make
the puce. No team bus a cinch , and will
hnvo to keep busy all the tiinu. At no stage
of the gumo can any of them lay buck on
their oarn. They must be keyed up to their
fullest tension from the first tap of the bell
until they u.isn under the wire In October.
Then look out for a close finish and lots of
hurrah and excitement ,
