Doing fairly well.
Five unifi out of sla at home and tlx
raises out rf Seven abroad la not such a
bad record. Acd what a howl the susress
ef the 0 oah team has set up In some
Quarters. One or two of the dopemakere
for w.ter papers, whose eyes are turned
Inward, have shouted a dally chorus ct
"Walt till Denver gets there:" or "Walt
till Kansas City romes!" We are waiting,
and will welcome the Kent of both the
Cowboys and the Grizzlies. Moreover, we'll
guarantee them an hour or two rf real lively
work every day they play In Omaha. It Is
too much to expert that Omaha will win
I! Its xames, but The Bee s'ands by what
it said before the araon opened, that the
team winning from Omaha will have to
bustle all the time. No one could be more
anxious than the Omaha fans for a clash
feMween Omaha and Kansas City and Omaha
and Denver on the home grounds. They
know what the Rourkltea can do, and are
srer to find out what some of the others
are cspsble of. However, the critics of th
Omaha team must not rely on the fact that
It is all good luck that has given the vic
tories credited to the leaders. Some mighty
fine ball playing has entered Into that re
suit. For example. In the tie game with
APeorla on the Omaha grounds, the visitors
'made twelve hits and got two runs In twelve
.Innmgs. In one game at Peoria the Plratee
made fifteen hits and got but three runs.
It takes ball playing of the highest order to
produc such results. Batting Is not the
strong point of the Omahas, yet they man
age to scrspe together a few hits Just at
the right time In each game. It is the field
ing of the team, its perfect co-operation,
that has made it the leader. All other
Western league teams have been criticised
for lack of concerted action. Among the
Omahas this has been developed to a high
point. Not a record player has a position
n the nine; each uembet Is a hard work
ing part of a whole. Errors do not come
frequently, owing to the skill of the Indi
vidual players, but when an error does
e' up It la generally the re?ult of a hard
try1 on a ball a record player would have
shirked. Thla la the real secret of Omaha s
fcu?ces. It Is ball playing and not luck,
as some of the critics will find out before
the summer la ended.
It la not impossible that the history of
IrOO wlU be repeated. Then Omaha's team
made a atrong Jump forward In the early
part of the season, only to fall back later.
One thing Is absolutely sure, and that Is
that any alump the team may take this
season will not be due to the cause which
wrought Its downfall In ISM. It was an
open secret then that dissension in the
ranks of the players and flagrant disre
gard for the ordinary rules of base ball
discipline were the contributing causes of
Omaha's dreadful slump. No repetition of
that discouraging experience is likely.
Only the best of feeling exists among the
playera, and each has the Interest of the
learn entirely at heart as much as If It
were his own. On these tacts the Omaha
tana are 'building their hopea.
Kansas City has made a good stand on
the home grounds and Is holding second
place by a nice majority. The aeries with
Omaha means much to both teams and
ought to prove intensely interesting to the
public. Denver will have opportunity thla
Week to discover the easy spots supposed
to exist at Milwaukee and Peoria. After
finishing there Omaha will give the Orlx
tUa welcome and prepare them for the
reception that awalta them at home. Den
ver has not been playing the aort of ball
eapected from the team, the infield show
ing especially weak. Davis Is playing his
usual careful game at first, but Delehanty,
Radclltfe and Dundon have been con
stant contributors to the error column.
Parke Wilson la doing his beat to steady
the boys. Kansas City has been putting
in a fast, consistent game. The other

player may play where he pleases. And
still we bear talk of "orgsnited" base ball.
It Is about as badly dlaorganlied Just at
preseot as It well could be, and la getting
no better fast.
In the major leagues the hurdlers are still
in practice. "Dummy" Jack Taylor, the
pitcher, Jumped from Cleveland to New
Tork, and Clarence Wright, also of Cleve
land's pitching staff, leaped to Brooklyn.
It is reported that a deal is being cooked
up whereby Lajole will plsy In New Tork
for Freldmsa, who la willing to pay Colonel
Rogers a nice sum fof the release of this
cause of litigation. Thla would doubtless
be very welcome to Magnate Phlbe. who la
coughing up $1,100 per month to see Larry
get fat on the bench. There are many
other rumors afloat and there is reason to
expect other moves among the "out-for-the-stutf"
One of the unpleasant stories told dur
ing the week ia that Byron McKlbbon went
to Toledo to tamper with Dale Dear's team.
No statement as to his success has yet been
given out, but for the good of the Western
lesgue it is hoped that he will tall. 80 far
Jones of Denver and Welmer of Kansas
City are ths only known hurdlers In the
Western and they are two too many for
the honesty of the game. 8t. Joseph prob
ably needs to be strengthened, but why not
do It in a legitimate way? Duffy is find
ing new material for his Milwaukee team in
National and American league cast-offs and
It certainly seems that McKlbbon could do
as well if he would only try. The affair
also has the color of a confession of weak
ness on the part of the Western league,
for in coaxing players away from the Kan
sas City American team its superiority Is
admitted. Thla course is certain to gain
sympathy for the opposition. It wss hoped
by patrons of the game on both sides of
the controversy thst the test of strength
between the two organizations would be
settled fairly and without resort to any
underhanded or dishonest practice. In
ducing players to jump contracts Is mani
festly unfair and amounts to nothing less
than the encouragement of dishonesty.
Omaha patrons need not worry about
Pitcher Brown leaving the team. President
Sexton's order in his dual capacity merely
involves the payment of a certain sum
of money In event It shsll finally be de
cided that Terre Hautu Is entitled to the
same. Manager Rourks Is willing to pay
the money If the case Is decided against
him by th board of arbitration. Terre
Haute claim Brown under a three-year
reserve rule. Brown did not sign a con
tract for the current year with the Indiana
club, and la in no sense a contract Jumper.
He is subject to Omaha's draft, though,
and if the board holds that Terre Haul
had a claim on him, then Rourke will have
to pay the draft price. In the meantime
Omaha will have the aervlces of one of the
coolest, quickest and most effective pitchers
who ever atood In the box for the Western
league. Papa Bill's Interest In the game
la further shown by his allowing Stone to
remain at Peoria for another week at least.
Stone la doing splendid work, both with the
bat and in the field, and is a tower of
strength with the Peoria team. Hla pres
ence would assist Omaha In the batting
department, but there is some question as
to whether he can be trusted in the field
aa the tried and tested men who are now
there. People at Peoria were loth to part
with him, for he U quite popular there,
and ao will remain until the Plratea have
at leait met the Denver and Colorado
Springs teama. It is not Improbable that
he will be allowed to finish the season
One of the really delightful features of
the Western season so far haa been tho
rejuvenation of Willy McGlll. Willy Wil
son, Harry Vaughn and Harry Truby at
Peoria. There's a quartet whose 00m-
btned agea would go mighty near 160 years,
and they are playing like a lot of colta.
The liveliest youngster on the team ia not
a circumstance to that bunch. Bill Wil
son's catching ao far has been superb
and that old wing of his, which we all
thought waa dead, aeema as good aa a new
one. Vaughn at orst ana TruDy at second
ar playing Ilk Aneon and Pfeffer In their
best daya, and McGlll haa pitched some
excellent ball. Time works wonders, and
one of them la to furnish ball player
occasionally with a second time on earth.

Crelghtoo university . boys ar exerting

of the cleverest collegia! aggregations ia

state hav easily fallen before th Omaha
students, and ths fast Washburn college
aggregatloa met Its defeat at their handa la
a f to I game. The fact that Nebraska
only run up T scores to Washburn's 1
shows how good Crelghton's feat waa and
that the games between Nebraska and
Crelghtoa toward the end of the aeaaon will
prove very warm contests.
Wisdom haa beta shown by securing Ed
Lawler, the popular Original captain, -as
special coach for Crelghton. Bealdea being
able to play shortstop la a manner almost
equal to tho averago professional Lswler
la gifted with the beat powers for develop

Bucklln and Colfer are making good show

In the Indian game, where he pitched the
last two innings, snd Bucklln's work on
the eastern trip shows that both are prom
ising young pitcher whose only needs are
control and plenty of practice. Callahan,
the brilliant little foot ball quarterback
and last season's shortstop for the base ball
team, has not msde quite the showing that
was expected of him this aeaaon. The lad
la quick, has a powerful arm, but Is some
times troubled with "rattles."
This Is due. perhaps, to the fact that he
has been unwell this spring, and It Is not
unlikely that he will pull back Into his old
form before the sesson closes.
Crelghton's abort eastern trip la over and
now come heavy home games. On Msy 19
the swift Highland Park delegation will be
taken in hand and it will require the
Crelghton lads' mightiest efforts to conquer
these penaant winning Hawkeyes. Then on
Saturday, May 24. comes on of the biggest
games of the Crelghton schedule. On that
occasion "Omaha's Own" will have aa ad
versaries the champion University of Ne
braska team, and the event will undoubtedly
prove the greatest In local amateur sport.
This will be the first time that Crelghton
and Nebraska have met In athletics and It
is to be hoped that Omaha will hereafter be
a frequent witness to contests between
these two institutions. By Its strong show
ing this sesson Crelghton has demonstrated
ita right to play in faat company, in fact
la the only college In the state that can In
any way claim a team that has a chance ot

May SO will conclude Crelghton's home
schedule by a game with Drake university.
As yet Drake's strength has not been fully
tested, but If It follows Its usual custom
it will show the fans on the hill a very tine
grade of ball. On May 31 Crelghton and
Nebraska will meet at Lincoln in the clos
ing games of both their schedules.

BOWLERS MAKE SUMMER PLANS
Post-Season Tnrneya at Ten Plna and
Nine Plna on the Dooka
Again have the local bowlers altered
their plana. First they fixed it up to have
a aummer one-man tenpln tourney aa a
wlndup affair. Then they determined that
a two-man tenpln tourney waa the proper
denouement for the season Just ending.
The lateat now ia to have two tournaments,
a one-man tenpln affair and a one-man
For these events full arrangementa have
been completed and the nlnepln tourney, at
least, ia now a cinch. It will begin thla
week, probably Tuesday night, and twenty
men will play. Four prizea are up and the
entrance fee la $1. The tourney will con
stat of a total of eighteen gamea of ten
frames each. These will be played off three
at a whirl, on Clark'a alleys, the contest
thus consuming six weeks. Ten men each
will play on two nlghta a week, thua get
ting through the list. The entrlea to date
are: J. J. Berger, Charlea French, George
Chatelain, H. Beselin, I. S. Hunter, C. B.
Orlfflths, C. H. Mullln. L. O. Shrader,
George Forgan. W. W. Whlttaker. W. H.
Emery. M. R. Huntington, W. J. Little.
J. R. Snyder. Jamea A. Clark and B. B.
These men are all nlnepln experts, many
of them caring more for thla game than
for tedptna Itself. Some ot them never
play anything else. The competition In
the tourney will be keen, the rivalry hot
from the start, and the contest will be
further Interesting because of ita being the
first nlnepln tourney to be held In Omaha.
For the one-man tenpln tournament
things do not look quite so bright yet, and
It will probably not be commenced till next
week. For thla, again, twenty entrlea are
desired. This will also continue alx weeka
and there are alx prizea announced. The
first Is a gold medal, the others, in turn,
$10, $7, 15, S3 and $2. There will be two
nlghta of play a week, alwaya on alleys
No. 2 and I at Clark'a. Ten men will play
a night, and each will play all evening on
the aame alley, changing to the other alley
the next night he plays. Ths entries to
date are: C J. Francisco, M. R. Hunting.
The uaTiie Itch King rightfully belonps to Eczema, for no other disease can approach it in
the intensity and fierceness of its itching. It is an irresistible and overpowering itch, nnlike
that produced by any other disease, or from any other cause. Eczema's itch is torture, ami, at
times, so distracting that the sufferer scratches till the skin is broken and streaked with blood.
Scratching does harm, of course, but the eczema patient is deaf to reason and reckless of conse
quences when the itching begins .
Eczema is caused by a too acid blood and the retention in the system of uratic and other
waste matters which the proper organs have failed to remove, and, through the circulation, these
irritating poisons are carried to the surface of the body, producing inflammation and redness of

I suffered for three years with Eczema
on the lower part of ray leg and ankle,
and it became ao badly swollen that 1
could not wear toy shoe and was practi
cally a cripple most of the time. I spent
a good deal of money without relief, and
had about given up hope of ever getting
rid of the tormenting disease, which at
times itched almost beyond endurance.
When my attention waa called to S. S. S.
I decided to try it and began to improve
at once, and in a short time was cured.
The S. S. S. also built up my general
health, and I feel better in every way.
I am convinced S. S. 8. is the greatest
knor'Ti remedy for Eczema.

the body is overheated, is almost unbearable. In Eczema the blood must be treated, and not the
skin, if a permanent cure is effected. Local applications of washes, ointments or salves allay the
itching aud burning to some extent, but do not reach the acid-laden blood, or cleanse the circula
tion of the accumulated waste, but S. S. S. does, and by thus removing the cause, the irritating
eruption disappears, the itching and burning ceases and the unhealthy skin becomes soft and
smooth again. S. S. S. cures Eczema and all skin diseases of the Uric Acid type, restoring to
the thin, sour blood all of its lost properties, making it rich and pure again. All parts of the
of Blood Purifiers, is the only known medicine that conquers Eczema, the Itch King of skin
diseases. Write us about j'our case, and our physicians will advise you without charge.

Meanwhile the long awaited series be
tween the German and American teams ia
announced to begin thla week. It haa been
decided to have four meetings, each man
to throw three games ot ten frames at a
session. Two nights' play will be bowled
at Clark'a alleys, two at Lents & Williams'.
Only one contest will be held a week, ao
the match will continue four "weeks.
As further proof that the month of May
is yet to be the hotbed of more bowling
than any period of the whole year comes
the news that the Omaha league team,
which won the league championship this
season, has finally completed all arrange
ments for Its matches with the Nebraska
City champion team. There will be four
meetings of these teams, two at Nebraska
City first, then two here. Three games of
ten frames will be played at each contest.
In order to avoid making two trips each
way or staying over two nights It has been
suggested that the teams play In the after,
noon, and again the same night. This will
probably be done. The gamea in Omaha
will be on Clark'a alleys. It Is said that
the matches will commence next week.
Charlea French has the last week rolled
up twenty-eight points straight at ninepins,
which is the best lob at thla game ever
done In Omaha, and supposedly in Ne
brsska, as no record of a mark aa good
aa that la known to local followers of ths
game. It la certainly a wonderful record
and waa made In three gamea, not In four.
French dropped the last two points out
of thirty frames.
Bowlers have been interested In the
bresklng of the world's record for team
tenpina, two men, thirty framea each, at
Providence, R. I., last week. The Provi
dence team in winning from the Fall River
team bowled 1,607, beating the record by

How many, many young women are anaemic, pale, sickly-looking, perhaps
with pimple on face and neck, owing to poor, unhealthy blood. Perhapa

The spark of love for each other slum

ried last Tuesday In Philadelphia. Ur.
Price and Miss Trumball met forty years
ago at a summer resort on the Maine coast.
It was a case of love at first sight, and
their friends looked for a speedy marriage.
But when the doctor, who had fallen Into
a comfortable fortune, attained hla ma
jority, he fotind he had spent a good por
tion of It. Before entering matrimony he
determined to win another fortune, and this
was slow work. Pr. Price waa seriously ill
last January, and In his delirium he kept
calling for Miss Trumball. She was sent
for, hsstened to his bedside, and nursed
him back to health. Then they determined
to get married.
The postmaster general has Issued a fraud
order denying the use of the malls to lizzie
Coffee of Hurnipe Corners, Mich., who ad
vertised herself extensively throughout the
country as a candidate for matrimony,
stating that she had t60.(mo In cash, and
wanted a "congenial companion and part

letters received at the postofflce at Burnlps
Corners, about 2o0 people a day discovered
that they loved Miss Coffee and could be
as "congenial" as desired under the condi
tions named. It was found by postofflce
Inspectors, who Investigated the case, that
Miss Coffee hud one husband and no money
except that received from her dally visitors.
A copy of the charges was forwarded to
the postmaster at Burnlps Corners, who
returned the papers with the comment that
Miss Coffee had left for parts unknown

The doctors said 1 had pustular F.crema;
it would break out in small white pus
tules, mostly on my face and handa,
discharging a sticky fluid ; crust would
form nnd drop off, leaving the skiu red
and inflamed. I was tormented with the
itching and burning characteristic of the
disease for five years, and duriug the
time used various medicated soaps, oint
ments and washes, but these applications
seemed to mate me worse. After taking
S. S. S. a short time I began to improve;
the itching did not worry me so much.
I continued the medicine, and aoon all
the ugly eruptions disappeared and my
skin is now as clear as anybody's; I have
not been troubled with it since.
