NEBRASKA'S BASE BALL RECORD
lalvrralty Team Closes Its leasos
with av Remarkable Stria
Tbe base ball season at the University
of Nebraska ended In a final blaze of glory,
the Cornhusker lads administering a
trouncing most complete to the strong
semi-profeaalonal Havelock team, the
score standing 10 to S. On the day fol
lowing Creigbton university was booked
ty close the Nebraska schedule, but the
state lnterscholastlc field meet took pos
session of the campus by reason of prior
claim and the collegiate base ball cham
pions of the west were compelled to give
way. Manager Shldler of tbe state uni
versity team declares that he scheduled
tha Creigbton game In tbe utmost good
faith and was perplexed when informed
that the High school athletes had secured
first claim on the ground for the data in
Especially successful baa been the year
with the state university diamond crew, In
fact no college aggregation In the west
or, for that matter, in tbe entire collegiate
world, can compare records for 1903 with
the lads who sport the Nebraska colors
and battle In tha upholding of its honor.
Twenty games against college opponents
were on the Nebraska schedule. Of these
tbe Cornhuskers were victorious in seven
teen, percentage of .850. This, in Itself,
is remarkable, but the record of the Ne-
braskana shines with still greater luster
when the fact is taken Into account that
fifteen of these games were played on
foreign grounds and before hostile as
semblages. Nebraska also has to her
credit the longest tour ever made by a col
lege base ball team in tbe country. The
distance covered was upwards of 2,500
miles, and out of twelve games played on
tbla Journey nine resulted in victories.
Against the teams included in the fa
mous "big nine," or conference colleges of
the middle west, the Ccrnhuskers were suc
cessful to a degree that shows conclusively
that college base ball in no aectlon of tha
country presents a atronger or more fin
lshed article of the national pastime than
right here in tbe west. Five games were
played against "big nine" teams, and of
these Nebraska was victorious in three.

way a disappointment. Neither the visi

thla Is due to the fact that each team
Aad Just had bruising series with other
-opponents, that each bad been on a atrain
for days, and that neither was able to
put It full strength Into the field here.
Omaha was compelled to play an out
fielder at short In two of the gamea, and
both teams had to patch up outfields with
pitcher and catcher in order to fill all
positions. Each won a victory over tbe
other that seemed overwhelming, and
each won a victory by a narrow margin,
leaving nothing decided. All who aaw
the Sunday game, when Omaha exhibited
ao marked a case of stage fright, believe
that with a competent umpire tbe home
team would have won. Kansas City will
play here on Sunday. July 20, when the
whole thing will be tried over. At
present the teams have played eight
games together and each haa won four. So
honors are even there.

A close atudy of tbe Nebraska team
makes It rather difficult to attribute to any
one department the real secret of Its suc
cess. The batting has been timely, the
fielding much better than that of oppo
nents, the base running far ahead of adver
earlea and the team work In general de
veloped to an unusually auccessful degree.
It cannot be gainsaid, however, that the
battery work has been high-class. Bender,
a pitcher last year and a good one, too,
was developed as a catcher early In the
season, and the atocky little fellow haa
shown himself almoat a phenomenon. His
arm works aa on a pivot and his throwing
to base Is well nigh faultleas. In fact, he
backstopped no less than fifteen games dur
lng tho collegiate season and had less tban

Of all tbe college base ball clubs of tbe
middle west few have made a better record
or concluded a more successful season than
Omaha's Own" 'varsity team, the ag
gregation of base ball actentlsta who repre
sented Crelghton university this season.
Considering that this Is but the second
regular 'varsity team that Crelghton has
placed on the diamond, considering tbat a
certain antagonism and distrust, the out
growth of long absence of athletics from
Crelghton, have bad to be overcome and
eradicated, considering the extent of their
chedule. their necessarily limited pecu
niary resources and the small number of
tudents they can draw upon, the Creigh
ton boya have made a record which might
lmost be termed phenomenal, and they are
eservlng of the highest praise and tbe
most earnest congratulations. They have
et a pace this year which succeeding teama
that represent the "blue and white" can
safely follow and imitate, and, best of all
tbey have clearly established Crelghton's
right and ability to compete with the fast
est collegiate cluba in the middle west.
One single defeat this season, and that at
the hands of the University of Nebraska,
the fastest team in western Intercollegiate
circles this year. Is Crelghton's proud rec
ord. Though the schedule waa somewhat
abridged by the forced abandonment of the
northern trip, still it Included a sufficient
number of the lesdlng college clubs to de
termine Crelghton's standing.
This season's great success Is due,
primarily, to the exceptionally large amount
of athletic talent at Crelghton this year.
and, aecondarly, to the early training and
to the earnest endeavors tbat were evinced
by the base ball bunch. In point of ma
terlal few schools in the country could
consider themselves more fortunate. In
batteries. In infield and outfield, were Indi
vidual players that any amateur team
manager might consider worth signing.
At tbe very outset of tbe season Crelgh
ton boasted a pair of pitchers that could
compete with any amateur twlrlers in the
west and that professionals - would not
scorn. Harry Welch, Crelghton's star
wirier, and Wilcox, champion amateur of
Mexico, were tbe twain. Unfortunately
Wilcox left school about the middle of
April, so he was unable to render much
service to the team, but Welch showed up
In stronger form than ever after that. In
the Washburn and Drake gamea a finer
exhibition of pitching could not have been
had. Though Creigbton waa hampered by
tbe loss of Wilcox, a squad ot young pitch
ers waa gradually developed, and. If they
did not render much eervice this year, they
will form a fine nucleus for tbe .future. Of
these Blab artlaia Bucklln, O'llanlen and
Colfer were the moat promising.
The other end of the battery department
waa equally strong. Captain O'Keefe waa
a host In himself and George Clarke and
Edward Crelahton Droved themselves
worthy substitute whenever needed. Lynch
and Crelghton were veterans on tbe In
field, and Clarke, Dlneen and Kehoe formed
aa efficient an amateur trio aa has ever
controlled an outer garden in Omaha.
Tbe team began training aa early aa Feb
ruary In the excellent cage that haa been
placed In "Old University Hall." This gave
the Crelghton a fine start on their competi
tors and to the fin atlck practice indulged
in Is due In no small degree Crelghton's
reputation of being th hardest hitting
team in tbe west.
In one respect, however, Crelghton waa
wanting thla year. It lacked tbe continual
services pf an able coach and a strict dis
ciplinarian. Owing to thla a conoleaeur
might say that the team did not exhibit
that fine degree of team work one would
expect from an aggregation composed of so
many star players. Exhaustive studies
and lengthy class honors have made the
Crelghton team delinquent In regards to
practice. But no team can expect to be
auccessful unless It sacrifices much time to
hard and efficient practice, which Is the
secret of team work. Next year, when tbe
financial condlttona are expected to be bet
ter and when It is hoped that still more
material will be at hand, ao that discipline
may be more severe, the Crelghton lads
can see to these, things. Most all of the
old player will be back. Lynch Is tbe
only graduate; Welch haa another year
ad so also has O'Keefe. Dineen, Clarke,
Creigbton, Kehoe and O'Hanlen are all
freshmen or sophomores. With tbls goodly
neat egg Crelghton should represent Omaha
with one of th fastest college aggrega
tions In the west.

The skin is provided with millions of little pores
and glands invisible to the natural eye, 3et through
these tiny outlets the larger part of the deadly matter
that daily collects in the body is carried off. But nature
never intended that poisons of an irritating or acid char
acter should be eliminated through the skin, the Liver and Kidneys being their natural outlets,
and it is when these important organs fail to perform their functions that these acid poisons are
absorbed into the blood and find their way to the surface of the body through the pores and
glands of the skin, producing intense itching and burning, inflammation and swelling, and
eruptions of every conceivable size, shape and character.
Skin Diseases differ greatly in their general characteristics and degrees of intensit)-. Red

blisters, from which is discharged a clear or straw colored fluid, which dries aud flakes off in

blackheads and blotches are evidences
of a too acid blood, which has
inflamed and clogged the pores.
Skin Diseases being dependent
tipon the same causes require the
same treatment, which must be con
stitutional and not external. Nothing
applied locally to the inflamed surface
can bring much relief. The disfigur
ing eruptions will continue to annoy
and pain you in spite of soaps,
washes or powders. There is no hope
of getting rid of a skin disease except through the purification of the depreciated blood and
neutralizing and filtering out of the circulation all poisonous substances and acids.
The purifying and tonic properties of S. S. S. soon manifest their influence in skin affections;
the debilitated system is invigorated and toned up, and the gradual disappearance of the
eruptions show that the polluted blood is being brought back to its natural purity and strength.
tjia cnronic stun aisoraers, wnicn nave
resisted all the ordinary methods of treat
ment, readily yield to the curative powers ot
S. S. S., and there is no reason why the long
time sufferer should feel resigned to his fate
under the mistaken idea that some skin dis
eases are incurable, for S. S. S. has cured
and is still curing cases perhaps far more
desperate than yours. S. S. S. is a purely
vegetable remedy, containing no Potash, Arsenic or any of the poisonous drugs which constitute
the basis of so many so-called skin cures.

MISS GENEVIEVE CLEMENS,
FREMDEJMT OF THE NORTH SIDE YOUNG WOMEN'S
Women have M important work and tbev should be u actiT
and ambitions aa men. The time has passed' when women' use
fulness in any sphere is to be lightly spoken of. Though as moth
ers in the home they rock the cradle and rule the world, women
are also active in almost every walk of life. They are prominent
factors in literature, music and art even in politics. They exert
a wide influence through the church, the club and numerous
useful societies. Kindergartens, orphan asylums and nearly all
great charities are dependent upon their careful direction, faithful
work and loving care. In every land progress may be measured
by the position of women.
But with all these opportunities to exert her sympathy and
with all these invitations to nseful service, hundreds of thousands
of our -women are unnecessarily the victim of female weakness
which is sapping their life blood and vitality. They are ambitious
but the drag of disordered menses is too much for their strength
and the terrible drains and pains they suffer make them unequal
to the demands of their every day life. We ssv thee troubles and
limitations are unnecessary because Wine of Cardui ha raised
hundreds of thousands of women from beds of helpless
weakness to lives of health, strength and usefulness.
Miss Genevieve Clemens, No. 427 LaSalle Avenue,
Chicago, 111., had permitted this trouble to run on to a
serious stape. She then tried Wine of Cardui and sha
tells about her happy cure in the following letter:
" From my experience with McElrcc's Wine of Cardui I m
satiifled that it Is an hontit, reliablt medicine which docs all and
mere than it claim to do. Sines my girlhood I have suffered
atonies every month at the time of my menstrual periods and
always had to remain In bed two or three dsys at that time.
Father spent hundreds of dollars with doctors but I found a I
frtw older the pains Increased. A neighbor who called one
day when I was sick advised me to try your Win of Cardui.
I sent for a bottle snd used it faithfully during the month and to
my surprise found that at the next period my pains were vsry
much lessened and In another month I was perfectly well.!
This Is a year ago and during that time I have had neither'
ache nor pain, thanks to Win of Cardui."
Here was a bright and intelligent girl becoming a dit
, ecu raged invalid, the pain getting worse as she grew
older. After trying many doctors she took Wine of Car-
aui ana UUS great meuicine gave urr uig ueauui auiu
energy necessary to take her place as a leader among
women. She is now the president of the North Side
Young Women's Temperance Association and her influ
ence as a leader is felt among a wide circle of associates. If
she had rjt taken Wine of Cardui she would be a sufferer to
day and Je world would have lost her works and talents. Her
simple, honest letter stands out boldly for what Wine of Cardui
willdo for any discouraged, suffering woman. All women are)
alike. What cured Miss Clemens will cure you. If you need
advice write The Ladies' Advisory lepartment, The Chatta
nooga Medicine Company, Chattanooga, Tenn., telling all
about your case and your letter will receive the attention of
persons highly competent to advise you. Thedford's Black
Lraught to regulate the bowels and stir op the torpid liver,
will assit materially in any cure. Your health is worth much '
to you. The pain all gone, a new woman, with renewed energy,
ambition and aims, results. Giving up means oblivion in the
grave or in the asylum. Women's lives are too often bUuted by
ill health. Miss Clemens' letter shows the way to health. Get a
dollar bottle of Wine of Cardui from your druggist and you.
will feel like a different woman next week.
