What a dear lot of Grizzlies they are to

believe that the-v a ere like tbe the bean

like, but tbe reports that preceded them
were really a-andaoasly utitrop. We found
tbem at gentle axd tractable aa a lot of
well trained ebeep dept. Twice they were
let out of tbelr rages and they romped
and played around tbe fieid at Vinton park
like ao many household peta. and never
snarled or growled or offered to eat any
one. And tby were not quite able to turn
tbe trick tbelr Denver frieDd hoped they
could. In fart, tbey were in big luck to
get a game here. On tbe whole, they are
a nice a lot of players as hare ever

tbey will hay to go touch faster than
tbey did here If tbey Intend to win tbe
A rite Latham has made a record in
Omaha. He U tbe first umpire who erer
had to call for police protection during
the progress of a game here. Bill Everltt
also made a record. He is tbe first player
ever escorted from tbe Omaha grounds by
tbe police. And President Sexton and
Magnate Burns saw the performance.
Omaha has always been proud of the
orderly conduct at tbe ball games here, and
in this ease tbe regret Is only slightly
lessened by the reflection that tbe trouble
waa due to a visiting plsyer who has maSe
a record In this line.
During the week a slight betterment In
both fielding and bsttlng averages resulted
Batting for tbe team was pulled up from
7M to .2bt, and fielding from .8f7 to .Sf.S.
This Improvement shows stesdy. consistent
work by the team. Dolan had a bad week
of It. getting three errors tn tbe Tuesday
gsme, owing entirely to plsylng In tbe
nxud. Gondlng made a big Jump up In
his fielding and batting both, -and Carter
furnished the team with a JfKi hitter on
the regular list, while Genlna is almost on
that mark. Pop Eyler'a fun with tbe boys
;held down all their batting averages.
Stewart's great work at second basa hss
been the real feature of the week's play
ing. He Is really putting up a wonderful
game In tbe field, as well as directing his
mea with skill that is little short of
marvelous. At present there is so sign
of the predicted slump in Omaha's work.

Some of the envious critic of the Omaha
tettn still Itirl't tbsl Its lead is due to
lurk. Grarted. let us tee how much luck
baa bad to do ith the other side of the
sory. Peoria srored the first win against
Omaha by a score of I to 1. Peoria' two
runs were scored tfcis wsy: One mil get
a bsse on bs:is. snd tbe next hit a slow
ree to F'.ewart. In trying to get both men
Are trade a bsd throw to second and both
were safe. Tbe nett two were out In order,
and then a double drove home tbe only
runs Peoria got In tbe same. If Stewart
had thrown to Erst the double would never
have happened, and tbe game would hsve
been Omihs's, 1 to . Tbe aezt game lost
was at Milwsukee. In tbe Binth inning,
with tbe score t.ed. Graham hit for a
home run. The ball, when fielded in. hit
tbe clothing of Cmplre Latham. Graham
ws already safe, but under the rules he
bed to go back to third, where be dif-d.
The next game wss lost to Kansas City, due
to Charlie Nichols' great pitrbing. In the
last game tt Kansas City, with two men out
and two on bases. Bobby Carter mad a
hard run for a fiy near tbe right field foul
line. While running at lull speed be missed
the rstch era , ball s-ruck his left knee
just a he shot his leg forward, and what
oinety-ntne times out of a hundred would
have been a sure out went for a home run
and three runt rode In os It. lust enough
to win tbe tint. At St. Joseph a game
was forfeits because Omaha could not
stand for tbe work ot tbe Mtssourlsns. In
tbe last game with Denver Joe Dolan made
a threw to first tbtt wss lmt a trifle wide,
and it resulted in the two runs thst gave
Denver the game. Now, there are four
of the sit defeats due to hard luck, three
of them to tingle errors, and the other to
tbe umpire's not getting out of the wsy of
tbe ball. Tbe Ft. Joseph forfeit game
spesks for Itself. Of the six defeets charged
to Omaha, only one fc due to the game
being lost on Its merits, yet tbey still talk
about "Omaha'a lurk." Some time before
the season Is ever they will admit that it
is Omaha's ball pitying that has won so
That triple pity by Omsba at St- J-:s?pb
last Sundsy was one of thoee rare things
in base ball men like to remember and tell
about all their live. It waa really a
marvelous bit of Adding on part of the
Omahas. In tbe fourth Inning St. Joseph
seemed about to break the ice. Robe, the
first man up. tit o clean single over sec
ond. Hart man came next with a neat
grounder to right, which took a queer
bound as Carter wss reaching for it, snd
was thus made good for two bases. With
runners on third and second it seemed a
cinch that tbe Baints would acore. Two
bits and do one out. and 8.500 fans yelling
like mad. wben Brasbesr came to bat. He
waited until Graham put one over and
caught it square. Awty it went to right
field, and tbe air seemed full of St. Joe
bsse runners, all tearing for borne. How
the crowd did cheer and call encourage
ment to the runners. Omaha was forgot
ten in the frenty of joy at the prospects
of at least two runs. And then! Are
Stewart was running, too. a fsct thst band
of crazy rooters bsd overlooked, and by
one of those marvelous exertions now and
then seen on the ball field, he intercepted
that hit of Brasbear'a. "Smack!" That
was tbe ball landing in Calhoun a big mitt,
and the next thing that met the gaze of
that aalonlsheU multitude ' wa a fclue
unlformed figure tearing across the
diamond. It was Cal, and he had one eye
on Robe and tb other on Hart
man. Both had stopped in mid
career, and neither seemed to know
what to do. In grand stand
and bleachers the tumult had ceased, and
tbe St. Joe rooters were watching open
moutbed in tbeir amazement tbe swift
movement of certain obliteration overtak
ing tbelr fond hopes of runs. Gondlng
had started down the third base line to
meet Robe, wbo fled from htm. Cal tossed
th ball to Gondlng. wbo overtook anl
tagged Robe, and then threw to Hlckey.
w bo caught Hartman Just at be began his J
slide, and one of tbe neatest, quickest
triple play on record had ended. There
was no more cheering from tbe grand 1
stand. In tbe sixth inning Frank Genlnt 1
added a little bit to tbe base ball education
of tbe Missourians by starting a play whicb
would easily have beea another triple, had
it beea seeded. With one out. and mea
oa first and second, the Su Joe batter j
arched a little, easy one over to Genina,
who was playiug close in. It was a cinch
that Genlna would catch th fly, ao both
runners held their bases. Genlns fooled
'em. He didn't catch the fiy. Inured he
merely trapped it, and tbea tossed the ball
to Ac Stewart, who touched tbe man at
second and tbea th bag. and two more
men were ot. The people didn't know
what had happened tint 11 tbe Omaha play
ers had Dearly reached the bench, and eves
at that Stewart had to draw a diagram of
tbe play for Vrcplrt Co.
One of the really nafortanat occurrences
of tbe week waa the accident which hap
pened to George Van Haltrra at Pittsburg
oa Thursday, a her thia well knows player
sustained a brokea anal sliding to sec
ond. His Injury ts severe enough to keep
him out of the game for the rest of the
oeaaoa and maybe for all tlm. Van Hal
tren's absence will ke a distinct loss, aot
only to th Now Tork team, but to the
game at large. If memory la right. It was
eigbteea year ag thia season a pitcher
came from California to Jola th Chicago
National league team, than at the height
of its tarn. Tw years pitching for Chi
cago and oa for Near Tork was followed
by his appearance la left field tor the
Giant, and slkco tbea from very few cham
pionship games la which the New Tork
team haa participated baa tho nam of
Vaa Haltrea beea misting. He ha beea
a reliable and consistent player, both at
the hat and la th field. He did aot quit
pitching because he had to, hat because he
anted to stay la th game. During all
these year the name of Taa Haltrea has
never beea mixed with any acaadal or mis
doing. Oa th contrary, h ha beea la
duatrlous aad thrifty, aad has afforded aa
excellent example for the cmulatioa of
younger player. A New Tork eor with
out th aam of Vaa Haltrea will look
queer to th old-time ra. aad maay good
wtahes will follow him lata his enforced
Just think of Prod Teaiy and Pred Clark
being hung up merely for taking a few
punches at each other during the progress
of a game. It really looks as though the

CREIGHTON HAS HARD LUCK
Rata Sxtlle Pretty Baee Ball Pre
trial for "Oraba'f Ovva
The Creigtron base bsll management has
had a csre of hard luck during tbe pact
ten dtyt. Somehow or other it htt an
tagonized the weatber man, and be, in turn,
has let loose tbe rain str!ngs whenever a
geme was billed for Creighton field. First
there was tbe Nebraska Wesleyan univer
sity game; then the Corner university game,
tnd finally the Highland Park college gsme
and all were spoiled or postponed by Jupiter
Pluvluo Tbe Orrt two would undoubtedly
hsve proven essy victories for Creighton,
but the Highlsnd Park contest a as not
so certain. At Ies Moines Creighton won
by the close acore of 15 to It. and tbe
Highlands Journeyed to Omaha with blood
in tbeir eyes. At tbe end of the Highland
half of tbe fourth inning, when the game
was called, tbe score stood 3 to 1 in fsvor
of the visiter. But this was no criterion
on which one could say that the "Scotties"
bad the game. All of their runs were made
in the first Inning on errors of Creighton.
After thst tbe locals braced up and shut
out eight prohibitionists in one. two, three
order. And the Creighton men began to
find Ellis, tbe Highlsnd pitcher. Each in
ning did the third out come when tbe bases
were filled with C. X'. sluggers.
If tbe Creighton people continue to im
prove tbeir field at the rate tbey have been
doing thi spring tbey will boast before
long tbe handiest and mom complete col
legiate field in the west. Tbe additional
bleachers that have Just been erected seat
almost COO people, making a total seating
rapacity of about 1,200. The Creightoos
have a perfect field, an excellent eight-foot
tight board fence around it, a regulation
backstop and the best clay gridiron ia the
west. All that is now needed is a grand
stand, a boon few colleges enjoy, but evea
thst it expected before long. All these Im
provements hsve taxed the athletic associa
tion to Its limits, and the member are
making strenuous endeavor to keep the
association on a good standing.
Now that the season i drawing to a close
and exams are coming on. tbe members of
tbe team are a little lax In practice. This
Is unwise, and Coach Lawler will sbow his
wisdom in making tbe boys put in tbeir
hardest licks up to the very lsst. Two

borne game of tbe season, and a return

Th most remarkable thing abetrt this

tact shoss plainly that tbe last few years
have aeea a great advance ia athletic of

An Invisible Enemy to Health
Malaria is an invisible atmospheric poison. The air becomes infected with the gases and
microles arising from the marshes and low lands, damp ctllars, sewer pipes, badly ventilated
houses and decaying vegetable matter, and we unconsciously inhale them :nto the lungs when
they are taken up by the blood and circulated throughout the system.
Malaria gives no warning of its coming; no immediate ejects are perceptible, and no
violent symptoms appear until the unfortunate sufferer is completely at the mercy of this hidden
foe.- This invisible enemy may be following us night and day, but often the first intimation we
have cf its presence is a chilly, creepy sensation running over the body, sometimes followed
by a flight fever, and an always tired, drowsy
and depressed feeling. The blood soon becomes
deeply poisoned, thinned and weakened by the
teeming millions of microbes and germs, and an
irregular, slow circulation is the result This con
dition of the blood gives rise to innumerable and
serious troubles. Torpid liver, enlargement of the
spleen, loss of appetite and feeble
or vcllow skin, pons, carbuncles, abscesses, indolent
ulcers, and pustular and scabby skia eiuptions of
various kinds, and frequently the health becomes
so impaired, and such a lifeless condition ensues
that the person loses interest in his surroundings
and faith in all human remedies. Malaria, if
allowed to remain in the system, lays the founda
tion for other diseases that very often prove fatal or permanently wreck the health.
Malaria can only be worked out of the system through the blood. Some remedy that
can destroy the germs and microbes and neutralize the bad effects of the poison, offers the only
hope of a cure, and the only medicine that can accomplish this is S. S. S., which not only purges
the blood of all morbid, unhealthy matter, but keeps it pure and healthy. It searches out and
destroys every trace of Malarial poison, neutralizes the powerful gases that cause Malaria with
all its "terrible consequences, and keeps the blood in such a vigorous condition that poisonous
matters of no kind are allowed to accumulate, but are
mg and tonic properties tna.. keep tne oiood clear ot au
morbid, -unhealthy matter and disease germs, and at the same time acts as an invigorating tonic.
Nothing is comparable to S. S. S. as a Spring Medicine, as it reinforces and builds up the
system when debilitated or overcome b- the depressing effects of the changing seasons, and
being absolutely free of all minerals, is perfectly adapted to the most delicate constitution.
If you have any symptoms of malarial poison, write us fully about it, and our Physicians
Mvill take up vour case and advise you without charge. Bock on Blood and Skin Diseases, free.

Not long sgo ber mother felt that she was
old enough to be baptized with full under

baptism be performed in the church which
the mother and father attended. To thia
tbe tot demurred. She wanted to be
"wetted for Dod." as she expressed It,
where her playmates snd friends could see
her. The mother was firm, however, snd
finally tbe wee miss became dutiful to tbe
