' egrtm.) Only 414 cash customeri
were present tonight when the Miners
defeated the Oniaha. 3 to 2 in the
first twilight game played in Joplin
by Western league teams. The game
was a good one, settling into a thrill
ing pitchtrs' duel between Crutcher
and Kopp after Collins drove oen
1 to the left field fence and drove Van
guilder from the mound in the fourth
The sunlight bothereo Meyers con
siderably and he kept changing his
position from back of the pitcher to
back of the catcher continually. How
ever, none of the attitudes he . as
sumed seemed to help his eyesight
smy and his umpiring was rotten.
Both teams suffered repeatedly be
:ause of his decisions.
, The Miners counted their first score
'in the opening inning when MeU
' tingled, stole econd and scored when
Kelley overthrew second. The visit
ors tied it in the .third on two singles,
t walk and a stolen base. They took
the lead in the fourth when Holder
man scored after forcingout Donica,
who had walked, Defate's single and
Kelley's sacrifice being factors in tlie
The Miners came back in their half
of the fourth and regained the lead
when Miller singled to left and Boeli
'er was safe on Callahan's error after
Lamb had fanned. Collins then drove
one to the fence, scoring Miller and
Boehler. The Miners got only one
safety aff-Kopp'i delivery. Scorer

BY PETE EOONEY
Peter J. Rooney, former proprietor
of the "Underwork!," has filed
charges against Detective A. C. An
derson, I'atrolman John J. Dudley
and Sergt. George W. Allen of the
morals squad, alleging that during
tlie.night of June 4 these members of
the police department entered his
place of business at 1322 North
Twenty-fourth street, without due
process of law and without reason.
The complaint which has been ad
dressed to the city council reads:
"They entered without warrant or
authority, in a violent, tumultuous
and disorderly manner, and in a loud
and boisterous manner created a dis
turbance which tended to bring dis
repute upon complainant and which
did shock and disturb peaceful cus
tomers." Rooney alleged that the officers
were actuated by personal feelings of
hostility, and he also charged that
the men have not made a report to
their superiors of the visit.
PETERS BEATS '
IN ALLIANCE GO
Big Bill Dristy. holder of the Ne
braska state amateur wrestling cham
pionship, undertook a little too much
jn his second appearance in profes
sional circles when he tackled Charlie
Petvs, the Papillion carpenter, who
meets John Pesek at Rourke park
July 4 Dristy went up against Peters
in a match at Alliance, Neb., during
the stockunen's convention there, and
came out1 second best. Peters won
two straight falls. The first fall came
in 15 minutes and the second in 10.
Peters' speed, strength and su
perior science proved too much for
Dristy who got away to a flying start
in his professional debut by beating
Pete Fromm, former light heavy
weight champion of the world, at
Harlan, Ia- ' '
. WITH SOLDIERS
The' Brandeis and Fort Omaha
base ball teams will play the rubber
game of a three-game series at

last Sunday, 4 to 3, after 10 innings of
combat. The Fort Omaha lads cap
tured the second, game in a twilight
contest Thursday night by the score
of 9 to 8.
The teams appear to be quite even
ly matched as both victories were
'earned by the narrow margin of one
run. Omaha fans will see a real bat
tle for blood when the rubber con
tests staged Sunday.

In the Silent Drama
Rialto Mme. Petrova appears for the last
times today here In "The Life Mask," a
baffling mystery drama of love, Involving
the young wife In being suspected and in
deed suspecting herself of being the poison
er of her husband while sleep-walking. In
the end the real perpetrator of the deed
is found and the heroine Is able to go with
the man she loves to live a happier life.
Muse Constance Talmadge will be the
offering- for the last times today In "The
Lesson," which gives Miss Talmadge Just
the type of role for which she is naturally
"fitted to a T."
Sun Louise Glaum appears here for the
ending of the week's program In "Shack
led," a story of modern society and a prob
lem play at the same time. In the end
she wins by the force of her truthful char
acter the respect of all and the love of the
man for whom she has braved public opin
ion and dislike.
Empress The big headllner at the Em
press theater, "No Man's Land," a dramatic
playlet In which Sergeant Fraser, late of
the 13th battalion, Black Watch Royal
Highlanders, plays the leading role, will be
witnessed for the last times today. A com
plete reproduction of a British front line
trench complete with electrical effects
makes this one of the most timely and In
teresting sketches ever offered. In "KMers
of the Night," a Kentucky story without
feud, will be shown on the screen at
the Empress theater for the last times to
day. Viola Dana plays charming Sally
Castleton, a daughter of the old south.
Strand "The Passing of the Third Floor
Back," with Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson
In the leading role. Is one of the highest
pieces of dramatic art that has been placed
on the screen. The atar himself haa taken
up the work of the fllma after some 40
years of work on tha apeaking stage and
Is acknowledged to bs one, of the greatest
of the actors of the day. In this play, one
of his favorite pieces, he represents a
stranger, who, coming alone to the dingy
boarding house, brings peace and happiness
with him. The landlady remembers the
daya when she did not overreach and grasp
for each penny; he unites two sisters who
have quarreled; he brings tha little slevsy
Into better ways of life and ahamtfs the
onos who have betrayed her. He brings
love and happiness to two young people and
to two older ones who have become shrew
ish In their ways he brings back remem
brances of happier days and things go better.-
It Is Indeed a dramatic scene when
the "third floor back" passes through the
hallway on his way In the world, leaving so
much where he found so little.
Lothrop Mary Plckford In one of her
most delightful comedy dramas, "Amarllly
of "Clothes Line Alley," will close the pro
gram for the week here. In aplte of the
plainness of the setting evident from the
title, the play Is a pretty and touching live
story and through It there are sent beams
of humor, brought out neatly In connec
tion with the Plckford amile. The char
acterization of the part played by Miss
Plckford Is excellently done and brings real
merit to the light plot.
Hamilton "Over There," a drama of love,
adventure and the modern war with Charles
Richmond and Anna Q. Nlllson In the lead
ing roles, will be shown for the last times
today at the Hamilton. Although In these
times of quickly moving events a war play
has to bo necessarily a short one, this one
has survived through the fact that
It is In reality a stirring drama of love
and adventure with the theme of the great
world war as Us basis.

Perfect Health Is Yours
If the Blood Is Kept Pure
Almost Every Human Ailment
Is Directly Traceable to Im
purities in the Blood.
You cannot overestimate the im
portance of keeping the blood free
of impurities. When you realize that
the heart is constantly pumping this
vital fluid to all parts of the body,
you can easily see that any impurity
in the blood will cause serious com
plications. Any slight disorder or impurity
that creeps into the blood is a source
of danger, for every vital organ of
the body depends upon the blood sup
ply to properly perform its functions.
Many painful and dangerous dis
eases are the direct result of a bad
condition of the blood. Among the
most serious are Rheumatism, vitfi
