Elevens in Conference.
Chicago, Oct. 26. With the elim
ination of Michigan, Minnesota and
Illinois, the race foMhe '"Big Ten"
foot ball championship tonight is
Harrowed down to a fight involving
Ohio Stite, Chicago and Wisconsin
' the only undefeated elevens in the
conference, with indications point
ing strongiy to another champion
ship triumph for the powerful Buck
eye squad.
The impressive 13-3 victory Ohio
State scored over Michigan yester
dayOhio's first in the 16 years of
foot ball relations between the two
universities installed the Buckeyes
as strong favorites for the 1919 title,
although Chicago, as a result of its
crushing 41 to 0 defeat of North
western, is given serious champion
ship consideration. The undefeated
Wisconsin eleven with victories over
Northwestern and Illinois, is also
firmly established in the race and
will battle Ohio State for supremacy
November-15. The relative strength
of Ohio and Chicago, however, will

Perhaps the biggest upsets Satur
day were the defeats of Minnesota
and Illinois. After being held al
"tnost powerlessj for three periods,
Wisconsin unmasked a smashing of
fensive that broke down the Illinois
line and paved the way Tor a 14 to
10 -victory. t
Minnesota fell before the already
beaten Iowa eleven, being outplayed
except for a few minutes in the
third quarter when the Gophers
fought their way down the field for

Local Bowling Notes.
A new matinee league has been
organized to roll regular matches
on the Farnam alleys every
Wedneday afternoon at 4:30. Four
departmental teams from the 1 Se
curity Loan company make up the
league. These matinee leagues al
ways prove successful and there
should be more of them.
The Sunlight Points went crazy
in the Gate City league last week
and knocked down the season's high
team total. Every man was in good
form, each turning in a good in
dividual total. A 3,049 total was
recorded, made up with three cames
of 984, 1,030 and 1,035. Charley Reis
rolled high total with 634, Zadina
followed with 617, Moyna next with
606, Landwerkamp with 597 and
Jimmy Jarosh trailed along with a
good 595 for low. Jarosh's 223 was
high individual game and a 168 score
was the only score under the 180
mark. A more consistant exhibition
of rolling is seldom witnessed. .
Will they never die? John Klanck
is back in the game and rolling as
food as ever. He will roll with
ams Indians.
Vaa Told Operation Was Her
Only Hope lanlac
Is Wonderful, She
. Says.
"RnMkinir from oersonal expert
fence." said Mrs. D. L. Travis, s well
known nurse, residing at 721 Sev
enth Ave.. Peoria. 111., in a conver
sation, recently. "I know Tanlac
. to be a most valuable medicine and
I feel it my duty to give the facts
to the world."
.-.'! Mrs. Travis is only one of a great
many in her profession who have
endorsed Tanlac. She has been
nursing the sick for eighteen years
and her statement, coming, as it
does, from one of such wide experi-
' .... . 'it A i.
ence. will oe reaa wun interest
evervwhere. "
"It is my honest belief," continued
Mrs.. Travis, "that there are mil
lions of people who, if they only
knew Tanlac as I do since using it
myself, would lose no time in re
lieving themselves of their misery as
I have done. 1 ,
f'The way I happened to know
of Tanlac was through a noted
physician. At this time I was suf
fering from what was said to be
chronic aooendicitis. which had
troubled me for seven or eight
years. I would become so nau
seated almost deathly sick after
eating that it was a common thing
for me not to be able to retain my
iood. I am speaking now of the
last stage of my suffering, after
. reaching the condition where an
operation seemed unavoidable. But,
' previous to this time and for sev
eral years my health had been very
poor and it was an effort for me to
itay on my feet and practice my pro
fession. I did it under the strain
of suffering and when I came off
from a case I was always so com
pletely tired out, exhausted, and
nervous that I thought each case
would be the last. - - -
"Finally, a few months ago, I
gave up completely, took to my bed
and arrangements were being made
for an operation, as it was thought
I would never recover without It
At this point my. physician and
friend advised me to try Tanlac for
a few days. Knowing he would not
advise me wrong I ordered a bot
tle at once and two days later my
suffering was letting up. Those
terrible pains began to leave, the
swelling and bloating commenced to
fo down and in a day or two more
changed from liquid diet to some
more nourishing and substantial
food. From that time on I re
covered in a way that was actually
astonishing to those who attended
me. In all I have taken about seven
bottles of this medicine and today
I am as well as one can be. My
lost . strength has returned, my
nerves are perfectly calm and no
one could get more restful sleep
than I do. My appetite is fine. 1 1
enjoy all my meals and I never
suffer in the slightest degree with
my stomach or in any other way.
Nothing would keep me from prais
ing this wonderful medicine."

can't kill "Dad" Huntington. The
old game is for the old as well as
the young.
Some mighty good races going on
in the various leagues. Don't look
like any walkaways in any league
this season.
Most of us despise cold weather
but cold weather makes the bowlers
flock to the runways and the grand
old game picks up as a result.
The women's league is having
some difficulty in maintaining their
organization up to its present
strength. There are plenty of wom
en bowlers, but there seems to be
something licking in keeping teams
together. In the past few seasons,
Omaha has led all other cities in
the number and quality of its wom
en bowlers. They should not become
lax now when the game is growing
l)igger and better.
Several bowlers have asked, "Who
is Bill Barron the newcomer in our
midst?" Well Bill, as he likes to be
called, is known all over the bowl
ing world. He has been connected
with both the bowline industry and
the game for over 20 years most of
the time in Cincinnati and St. Louis
He has always been a big booster
or the American Bowling congress
ana tne unio Mate Bowling asso
ciation, both large organizations.
With Garry Hermann and others he
conducted the big successful A. B. C.
tournament held in Cincinnati two
years ago. He also attended the
first A. B. C tournament ever held
and has never missed one since, and
don't intend to. He is a big man
in the game and a good fellow.
Every bowler in the city should
know him as his making his rest
dence in Omaha is a boost for the
local game. (
Dad Huntington's Beau Brummel
team motored to Fremont Saturday
night to take part in the big sweep
stakes. I he wintry weather caused
all of them to trot out their heavy
togs. Anyone seeing them and not
knowing who they were would have
guessed that it was Perry and his
crowd in another north pole dash
It's about time Hammond and
Middaugh, the Fremont cracks
were putting in their weekly visits
to our local runways m their wild
quest for wealth. Omaha sharks are
in good shape now and all set to
put up a good argument, which is
always necessary if this strong pair
is to be beaten.
Atkinson, the star Orchard &
Wilhelm bowler, is a new arrival
He hails from St. Joe, where he for
merly caved the pins in for

The Omaha Athletic club rollers
have got on the job and have or
ganized an eight-club league An
other eight-club league is in the
making. Herman Beselin, the old
timer, is one or the big noises in
the club organization and Bill Learn
is running the alleys, this pair
know enough about the bowling
game to get these organizations well
started on their schedules and con
duct a successful season. Two
strong teams, possibly more, will be
organized to represent the club in
outside matches and in the coming
middle west tournament.
Middle West Tournament
Several of the middle west cities
have already sent in entries equal to
the number oredicted and they ar
not through yet. A big flock of
eleventh hour entries can always be
figured on and aside from these
there is yet more than two weeks
left before the entries close. Chi
cago was figured for eight,, with a
possible 10. Twelve are already in
and there is a strong possibility of
three more. Peoria is sure of six,
three more than first predicted. The
Twin Cities have entered eight and
they haven't stopped yet. Only one
of 'Milwaukee's two teams was ex
pected and the one entry from To
ledo was not expected, but still no
body was surprised as Toledo is a
real bowling city and the Caampion

should enter, but the goal mark has
been set at 100.
The F. G. Smith's Arcades of Mil
waukee will be one of the main
drawing cards of the tournament. On
their lineup will be Jimmy Smith,
considered the world s champion
bowler. He has never been beaten
in a long series and has a long list

'Twas a popular place before the
generous brewers were forced to
quit putting out the amber flow. It
will be hard to make the visiting
bowlers think they are being cared
for along these lines by thrusting a
doughnut and a cup of coffee in
their open mitts.
Every bowler, no matter what his
prowess cn the runways amounts to,
is a committee of one to get local
entries and do whatever else he can
to make the tournament a grand
success. If you know where you
can get an entry, get it and turn it
over to Secretary Eidson or Chair
man John Hoffman. The entry may
go begging waiting for a caller. If
unable to get it yourself, give one
of the hustling .committee a tip as
to its whereabouts. Help boost
your own game.
President VA1 Scott announces
that he is all set up for the big drive
for local entries. "You know us,

bowlers are being heard from on the
local entry situation. They have

increase. '
The advent of prohibition has created so great a demand for Candy that the Company, like many
others, is forced to refuse orders daily. Orders are now on its books to keep the plant running to its fullest
capacity into 1920. The annual consumption is now at the rate of over a billion pounds, an increase of
over twenty per cent during the past two years. It is the intention to greatly increase the Company's facil
ities, thereby insuring an increasing volume of business.
The total sales to July 19th, this year, were one million eighty-one thousand dollars, compared with
seven hundred and thirty-six thousand dollars for the same period last year. Net profits for this period
prior to the deduction of Federal Income Tax are over two hundred thousand dollars. On account of so
much Candy being kept in storage during the summer months the largest volume of business and the
largest profits are always realized during the last six months of the year. It is conservatively estimated
that the total net profits for 1919 prior to deduction of Federal Income Taxes will be five hundred thou
sand dollars nearly six times the original dividend requirement on the Preferred Stock. After liberal
allowance, for taxes, net earnings applicable to Common Stock for the year will be at the rate of 25 on
the offering price.
A- large amount of this issue having been retained by interests identified with the management, we ,
offer the balance, subject to prior sale, on the following terms: The Preferred Stock at par flat, or $100
per share. For a limited time, with each sale of Preferred Stock purchased, we extend the option to pur
chase five shares of the Common Stock at $7.50 per share. Checks should be made payable to F. A.
Brewer & Co., or if desired, to the Peoples Trust & Savings Bank, Chicago, and sent to F. A. Brewer &

of this balance being anticipated upon this, the first public offering, we advise clients to wire or tele
phone their reservations at ourexpense. The right to reject any and all subscriptions or to allot a smaller
number than subscribed for is reserved.
