OlQiAHOMA CITY. Okl., March 23v-(Special.)-All
tho hard luclc oomlng to
any team In ono spring training Beaeon
has been crowded Into the first week for
the Omahas and It looks as If tho re
maining eighteen days of. their Btay hero
will see them working under moro favor
Work tho first three days was handi
capped by a regular desert sandstorm,
which filled tho eyes of the players, pep
pered their faces until raw and put tho
men in anything but an agreeable frame
of mind. Then finally when the high
wind and blowing sand was driven out
the factor In the chase was a norther
bringing with It rain and sleet and caus
ing the players to keep off the field
Thursday afternoon and all day Friday.
Added to these discomforts, the manage
ment of the park where the team Is
working was in a chaotic condition be
cause of law suits and a receivership,
and when the Rourkes got here no prepa
rations had been made by the park peo
ple; tho diamond was as It had been
abandoned last season; the water system
supplying shower baths at the club house
and water to wet down the diamond was
out of repair, compelling the playera to
walk a mile and a half to their hotel be
fore they could get out of their dust
ladpn- uniforms, bathe and feel like human
It was not until Thursday' that the
water system was repaired, and even then
the players did not get to use the show
ers for a freeze had preceded the norther
and burst the pipes. In order to make
the visitors feel as mean as possible theso
physical inconveniences were augmented
by the robbery of the club house Tues
day night by boys, who cleaned out
something like $150 worth of gloves, shoes,
bats and other personal effects of the
players, In many Instances equipment
made to order which could not be re
placed at any price.
But trouble Is past. The sun :s shining

All tho men came through the first

unfavorable weather conditions, no arms
aro so lame as to interfere with work,
although all have their annoying aches

Pa Rourke is delighted not only with
tho work of his men on the field, but
also their deportment when off duty. All
have been early to bed and early to rise,
they all are healthy, hope to be wealthy

Profiting by experiences of Ms early days
as a base ball magnate. Pa. has taken
particular pains to have rules strictly en
forced concerning gambling and drink
ing, and he says he never saw a Bquad
more free of these things than that ho
has with him Oils spring. Occasionally a
small game of cards Is Indulged In to
whllo away the hours until bed time, but
the stakes are held to a 10-ccnt limit, and
thete Is no drinking whatsoever. Not
only are the players temperate by choice,
but by compulsion as well. While the
time was, and that since prohibition, when
liquor was sold in Oklahoma City as
freely as In wet territory, at the present
time tho Oklahoma capital is suffering a
terrible drouth by reason of the sitting
of a special grand Jury and Investiga

the price of suds is 60 cents per bottle
and corn Juice 25 cents per taste too
steep for a poor base ball player, espe

ON TEACUP FULL OF FUEL
One of the best ways to get an idea
of the tremendous power and economy
of n perfect ball-bearing motor, coupled
with an efficient system of carburetlon,
Is to work out the fuel consumption into
small figures that really mean something.
People talk In gallons, but actually think
In plntB and cupfuls. Hence the Brlggs
Detrolter company, which manufactures
the ball-bearing Detrolter. in a series of
tests has established the fact that this
economical car can average two nnd n
half miles on a pint of fuel or over a
mite to the cupful. The full force of these
figures Is felt when ono stops to consldor
that a Detrolter, though a very moderate
weight car. yet with flvo passengers tips
the scales at more than a ton. A fow
drops of gasoline can start and move a
loud that two horses would strain at.

Schuyler Brltton, the new president of
the St. Louis Cardinals, has taken out

club for a total of tlOO.000, or 15,000 on
