METER'S OFFER TO FIGHT JIM CAEA'EI
There are, indeed, some curious features
in baseball, and probably the mos curions
is that part of its admirers which may be
termed grumblers. Of course I believe that
it is man's prerogative to grumble; there are
worse things than a good and thorough
going grumble, because after it is over we
oiten go along so much the better for it.
But when crumbling is founded on the most
unreasonable basis or prompted by a narrow
and ungenerous spirit, it is unfair. "Within
the last few days there has been this class of
grumblingagainstJIanager Phillips. 2oth
ingof a definite kind has been charged against
that gentleman, which makes the case of his
enemies so much the worse. But to revert to
the most curious feature of this railing against
Manager Phillips. It is strange that the noise
and kicking against hiui should assume tan
gible shape just when the club has won three
games out of four. This only shows that a
certain part of humanity now ana again want a
victim, and a victim they'll have, right or
A Few Words for Phillips.
It is safe to say that in a majority of cases all
the noise against managers of baseball teams is
almost entirely devoid of reasonable causes.
Is one of ns have forgotten the censure and rid
icule that were heaped on genial Jim Mutrle
only last year when the team was in anything
hut playing condition. Chronic grumblers
jeJed lor the manager's release; be was
charged with incompetency and everything
else that goes toward mating a bad manager.
But a change took place; the team got down to
work and soon reached the top of the list.
Then everybody seemed eager to tramp rough
shod over each other to reach the highest pin
nacle to sbont in praise of Mutne. Both ex
tremes were entirely unreasonable. The truth
Is, however, that the poir showing of the Giants
was no fan'" of Mutrle, and his case illus
trates a dozen others, and particularly that of
Manager Phillips. I am not saying a word in
defense of Mr. Phillips in the way of cham
pioning his cause: not at alL I ventnre to say
a few words in his defense fori firmly believe
be has right on his side and is being unjustly
dealt with by some who ought to be his friends.
So far I have failed to find one specific charge
preferred against Manager Phillips as a mana
ger. "When one asks where Phillips is wrong, the
answer generally is: "Why where is he right?"
This is about as definite as we can get it. Most
assuredly there are some people who can stand
at a street corner or sit at the fireside and man
age the most difficult team of ball players
Christendom ever saw. If Jones is put in to
pitch and loses, all that proverbial after-the-event
wit dawns npon our street-corner man
agers. They find out that Jones should have
never been put in, hut that Smith should have
been the man. However, when Smith does
loom up in the box and is thumped hard, our
street-corner wiseacres instantly discover that
Smith should have been eiven a longer rest.
and that Jones should hare been given another
try. Thus matters go on, and as in the fable of
the wolf and the lamb, the grumbler;, like the
wolf, ti ill have a victim regardless of reason or
Fair Criticism a Benefit.
I do not for one moment argue or in any way
contend that the management of. a baseball
team should not be criticised. By all means it
should, and if that criticism is prompted by
honcstv of purpose depend upon it the cmb, the
plajersan the public will be the better for it.
I venture to say that we'll all agree in this, and
if we do, it is only fair to ask if ever a ball
team had better nmspects than bad Pittsburg
J'ust before the season opened? The team really
ooked one of the strongest ever known, which
undoubtedly proved that the management had
sot been idle during the winter. But almost as
soon as the struggle commenced some of the
best men broke down or received injuries.
Jimr, was this the fault of the management?
If it was, then we must come to the conclusion
that a general in the army is directly responsi
ble for all the sickness -and injuries that may
befall his soldiers en the battle field. The truth
is that these grumblings about managers of
teams that are in difficulties are almost as
threadbare as the charges of dishonesty against
umpires. Is It bad and imperfect management
that is downing the Chicagos, and that has kept
the Giants down so tar this season? If so,
where in the world can good management be
Hovrlbe Strngcle Goes On.
Boston still keeps in the van, but the teams
behind her are crowding her more now than
ever. It is quite trne that the Bostons are
playing a good game, but I repeat what I have
said several times before: their game seems
good because the best of the teams have not
struck their best gait yet. Perhaps I may
qualify this assertion by saying the New Yorks
have almost gotten into line. The way in which
they twice defeated Boston this week certainly
convinces me that they are still the same
Giants as of yore. I cannot avoid the convic
tion that if Keef e, Welch and Crane once get
into good form ana can keep there nothing
will beat them. Cleveland still keeps near the
top, and while we all would like to see the baby
do well, we all bare a fear that the youngster
will take a tumble one of these days. The most
unfrrtunate team in the League is the
"Wasuingtons. Even with the addition of Mor
rill, Wise and Irin they don't seem one vihit
better than they were last year. It really does
seem to some extent a puzzle how it is profit
able for the Senators to remain in the League.
It will not be a great surpnbe if the fact of
Washington's retirement from the League is
announced before this year ends.
thero are reasons for this, but I am
inclined to think that the reasons against
preponderate. Wero the players in question
allowed to join the league, the probability is
that tho quality of the organization would in all
likelihood be better. It is true that some of
the clubs would be unable to pay yonngprofes
sionals, but it is also true that these same clubs
are unable to secure the best of material now,
so that in almost any sense the question re
solves itself into one of the survival of the
fittest. It does not seem reasonable to expect,
that there will be ten clubs in the county
league next year. Probably four or six clubs
will be found who can afford to keep a good
nine together. If this is so the organization
will be a good one.
John Teemer, the sculler, has gone East to
take part in a regatta at Boston to-morrow. It
is a pity that Mr. Teemer did not find
time to explain why he so mysteri.
ously dropped out of tho negotiations
for a race with Gaudaur. In commenting
On this point some time ago I intimated that
it probably might not bo Teemer's fault that a
match was not made between himself and Gau
daur. I am informed, upon what appears to be
good authority, that Teemer's hackers have
what we may call weakened. However that
may be, it is unfortunate for Teemer that he
issued such a defiant challenge before he knew
definitely whether or not ne hadastako be
hind. As a result Teemer has had to retreat In
a most inglorious way. Whether or not he
and Gaudaur will row any match races this
year I know not, but I am inclined to think
that Teemer's next challenge will have to be
accompanied with a good sized forfeit before
it is noticed. Teemer's departure, however,
reminds us that the rowing season is upon us
again. A few years ago this fact interested
many people, bnt few, indeed, seem to care
about it now. However, there is every in
dication that the scullers will be toler
ably busy between now and the fall.
I "don't think that America will see
much of tbe fun, as the proposed big
events will be decided across the Atlantic
There may be some good races here, however,
before tbe talent sail for England. It may be
that Teemer will be in the nartv that goes to
England, and if he is we may rest assured that
Gaudaur will be there also. We mav then ex
pect to see contests in which Scarle, O'Connor.
Teemer and Gaudaur will take part. The most
formidable of tbe quartet seems to be O'Con
nor. However.Teemer will find plentyof back
ing in England. He made many friends there
when he last visited the country.
The Amateur Pcnllcrs.
It seems as if there is more interest in ama
teur boat racing now than th ere has been for a
long time; certainly tbe pnblic is taking more
notice of tbe amateurs than of the profession
als. This fact shows what great changes can
take place in a short time. We can almost all
remember wben an amateur, even tbe very
best, was little thought of by the public. Tbe
creat feature of all aouatic contests was the
professionals, and through causes which don't
reflect much to tbe credit of professional
rowers the amateurs are tbe idols of to-day.
Well, our great amateur, I mean tbe champion
of the United States, has arrived in England
and is preparing to win championship laurels
there. Mr. Psotta's arrival has been kindly
and flatteringly noticed by the Englisn sport
ing press: indeed, some papers speak well of
his chances of victory. Following is the notice
that one prominent paper fives: "The Amer
ican amateur champion, who is visiting this
country in order to compete for the Diamond
sculls, reached London to-dav (Saturday), and
after a short stay repaired to Putney, where he
spent the afternoon at the quarters of the
Thames Rowing Club. He is a member of Cor
nell University, the Schuylkill Navy and the
New York Atntetic Club (under w hose flag he
will scull), and a very likely looking man, being
of tbe Hanlan type of build, weighs 11 stone 10
pound in bis clothes, and is but 24 years of age.
The two sculling boats have cone on to Henlev.
whither Mr. Psotta makes his way on Monday,
and after a spin or two over the regatta course
will most likely return to Putney, there to
train for the event. The voyager brings a big
reputation with blm. and, if we mistake not,
will make the best of them 'sit up.' "

A REMARKABLE GAME.
For Money and Honor.
There is a baseball contest underlined for
Tuesday, which will undoubtedly create con
siderable excitement. I refer to tbe match
game between Gusk) s and Kauffmanns. The con.
test has been entirely prompted by a spirit of
rivalry that is laudable. So much so that it
will tend to make the national game popular.
At least I hope it will. I know that there are
many people who object to playing for a stake
pure aud simple, but their objections as a rule
are not very btronc Certainlv not one of tbe
IS gentlemen who take part in Tuesday's came
w ill ever be an amateur acain. By their match
they will become professionals just as much as
a ball plaver who is receivinc pay Tor bis
services. At any rate tbe plaers who take
part in Tuesday's game -will not be eligible
members for amateur societies or clubs. How
ever, tbe gentlemen interested may be mindful
of this fact. The contest deserve tmr
patronage because beside being a contest of
skill the receipts are to be devoted to the Johns
town relief fund. It is to be hoped that the
tickets will be sold rapidly and that the game
will pass off pleasantly.
The Connty Lenguc.
Once or twice I have had occasion to refer to
the Allegheny County Baseball League. Its
existence has not been devoid of the ordinary
unpleasantness that invariably beset the path
of all organizations human, but I am glad to
say that the league in question has o far gotten
over its troubles splendidly. Au official of the
league told me yesterday that the rlubs ?re
generally doing fairly well. One or two are
losing a little money, but others are makinca
nice profit McKeesport, for instance, I'm
told, is making money fast. Iain inclined to
think that one or two of tbe league rules are
too amatenrisu uy jar; wuat j. meau by this is
that uhlle the rules aim at keeping from the
league bona fide professionals, that aim is not
a complisbed. W bat is accomplished only
tends to impair tbe quality of the leatrue. If
the object Is to have the organization one pure
ly of amateurs the effort is a failure, because
all ihe definitions of an amateur disqualify the
members of the leagne. Well, what I par
tlcularlr object to, since the organization is
not one purely of amateurs, is tbe fact that
young players who may come home from minor
leagues are not allowed in its ranks. Of course
The Decline of Foot Rnelnc.
There is no denying the fact that the popu
larity of foot racing, particularity sprinting, is
and has been on the wane for a long time. It
is practically killed in America, and its death
knell was sounded by its most prominent pa
trons. But sprinting also seems to be on the
down-grade at Sheffield. Tbe Whitsuntide
handicap had 72 entries, and there were only 41
acceptances. This is not all encouraging.
There are many alleged causes for this remark
able falling oil. Some authorities claim it is
from the erratic manner in which the starts have
been apportioned to the competitors. Other
authorities claim that systematic swindlingbas
been going on there for a long time, and honest
people are washing their hands of it. What
ever tne causes are, tne tact remains tnat tbe
acceptances for tbe handicap in question aie
among tbe worst on record, ft will be a pity if
tbe fraud and crookedness wblch bave charac
terized the sprinting contests in this country of
late assumes full sway iu other countries. One
by one professionals seem to be killing off the
oldest and best sports.
Looks Like a Fieht,
After all it looks as if John L. Sullivan fully
intends to enter tbe ring with Kilrain. The
big fellow" talks So positively about tbe af
fair that we must Rive blm credit for honesty of
purpose-that is, Ve ought in all &lrness to be
lieve that he is 6a ing what he thoroughly believes
to be true. However, it will be better and safer
to believe that Sullivan and Kllrala will fiiht
when we know they are In the ring. The latest
advices from England state that Kilrain Is a 6 to 4
larorite there, l am not surprised at tnls, be
cause tbe Kntrlish press very strougly assailed
bullivan's pugilistic pretensions when be was over
there. Some of the leading authorities argued
that he could not fight at all. However, Sullivan
was not seek at his bet In Kugland, and 1 don't
think he will ever be seen at his best again. But
1 maintain (hat Sullivan need not be at his best to
defeat Kilrain. 1 think all good Judges will agree
with me on this point, but een with this con
ceded there is still another difficult problem
staring ns In the lace. How much Is Sullivan
short of his very bestr That's tbe Important ques
tion, and In Its answer we'll And the key to tbe
entire aflalr. That Sullivan is not at his best, nor
will he be next mouth, UJustastrneasthe fact
that a veteran sculler of to-day Is as good now as
he was 20 or 30 years ago. It Is all very well to talk
about Sullivan getting easily down to weight, that
is the Weight at wblch be Intends to fight.
1 am arrald that this gcttlng-down-to-welgnt
business will mislead many people andltinavbe
that Sullivan himself will be led astray on this
polut. It may be, and I think 1( wiU be, that when
SuUivan gets down to his weight he'll liud that his
muscle Is not that hard and powerful muscle that
made bis arm a terror to all men a few years ago
Let me illustrate thls-polnt by recalling a chanter
or so In pugilistic history. In 1S5J Harry Broome
w as a terror to the world. He was a powerful and
clever man, so much so that he made short work
of a man like Harry Ornie. Broome had been
kent in the hjLCkl-mnnil fnr VMn Hnita, h.
Unt eye of his brother. Well. In 1S53 he was a
pugilistic king. After his fight with Orme he
lived a la Sullivan Tor three) ears. One day he
and I'jJdock got into an argument about ttaelr
c&pcbiicauuiues, ana a matcn was tneresult,
ui course liroomc soon got down to weight, but
his former strength had gone, and Paddock
fclmply butchered him. There are many simi
lar instances, 'but this Is directly to the
point. If Sullivan does enter the rlns
with unimpaired strength he will be one of the
most remarkable men known in. pugilistic his
tory. As 1 bave said Kilrain is not an out and out
first-class article, but he will be in as good con
dition wben be fights Sullivan as be ever was In
blsllle At present lbave an idea that Kilrain
and blsinslructors intend to male a waiting game
or It. Mitchell's success against Sullivan by as
suming waiting tactics will certainly prompt Kil
rain to do likewise, but whether Kllralu can carry
out these tactics as good as Mitchell remains to be
seeu. One thing, however, seems certain tome,
and that is Sullivan could not defeat Mltchelinext
month, and Sullivan cannot certainly know much
more than be did when he failed to defeat
jjiiwuc-u. uunvuT, itu&omciruaieanj 10 dis
cuss definitely the respective merits or Sullivan
and Kilrain. Tbe former will, undoubtedly, be
the popular man, but popularity is one thing and
excellent physical condition is another.
Meyer's Cliollrnce to Carney.
TVIlllam Meyer, known as Billy Meyer, "the
Western Cyclone, has challenged Jem Carney to a
fiht for any amount of money. If an) thing
would surprise me among tliese pugilists I conless
that Meyer's challenge would do su; but really, 1
wouldn't be surprised were Meyer to challenge
l'eter Jackson. But what seems btninge to me is
the fact lnat Meyer can secure a battle with sev
eral light-n eights here without going to .England
lor a man. Jack McAulIffe ls-ready anil so are
two or three others. If Meyer Is In earnest with
hi challenge we ought to admire his pluck, be
cause it m y be sale to say that wcreMe)eriu
front of Carney 30 minutes William would cer
tainly have a lew painful vomiting spells.
The Checker Championship.
It now looks certain that Jimmy Keed, as we
familiarly call him, will be "champion checker
player of America and England. Tlie contest now
going on between our townsman and Barker seems
a foregone conclusion. Barker is already beaten
and probably nobody will be more surprised at the
result tbau hlmselr; and I may add that
nobody will be prouder or tbe result
than l'lttsburgers. Probably no citizen in
the United, states deserves the highest
honors of n profession more than does Air
Keed. A more Indefatigable draught player i
bave never known, and certainly a more honor
able never lived. He has struggled long and
hard lor championship laurels, and I hope he will
hate the good lortuue to retain them long. Mr
Jteed's success, or at least a great part of It, Is
due to original thought. He Is a most Intrepid
little gentleman, and makes new rariAtinna ,
moves on the board that would hardly be ven
tured by even a man like Wylle: indeed. It Is safe
mai iii original piay air.

rSrECTSX TKLXORAM TO THE DISPATCH. I .
Indianapolis, June 15. Rusle, tbe juvenile
pitcher whom the borne club bave bad in prac
tice some weeks and who was sent home from
Cleveland because of wild pitching, was given
another trial this afternoon, with Myers behind
the bat and Daily on first in lieu of Hines, dis
abled. Burdick was beld as substitute. The
opposing battery was Staley and Jliller, with
Carroll in right field, vice Sunday. The attend
ance was lighter than usually marks Saturday's
games. But Rusle's friends were out in force,
determined the youngster should bave a good
show. Rusie proved himself remarkable. He
is almost an amateur, and although he made
blunders and let in a costly home run, yet his
work partakes somewhat of the phenomenal.
The game was the most remarkable tbat has
been played here for a long time, as will be
noted by a close study of tbe score. At tbe be
ginning of the tenth inning the game was a tie.
and intense interest settled down on players
and visitors alike, but after Indianapolis had
scored five the visitors threw up the sponge and
blanked. In tbe first for home team Seery
faced Staley for a little while, and then .vent

gathered it in time to throw him out, Seery in
the meantime reaching third, but Denny was
an easy victim from Smith to Beckley. Blank.
Young Rusie got the encouragement of the
crowd wben he went into tbe box and got two
strikes on Hanlon, who afterward popped a
short fly to Glasscock. He got wild with
Miller, however, and gave him first, but the
"calliope" ceased when he attempted to steal
second. Slugger Beckley stirred atmosphere,
and the crowd cheered. Blank.

Dunlap to Beckley, Myers then went

A Veil of Mist
Rising at morning or evening from some low
laud, often carries in its folds the seeds of ma
laria. Where malarial fever prevails no one is
safe, unless protected by some efficient medi
cinal safeguard. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
is both a protection and a remedy. No person
wbo inhabits or sojourns in a miasmatic re
gion or country should omit to procure this
fortifying agent, which is also the finest known
remedy for dyspepsia, constipation, kidney
trouble aud rhenmatism.

STRIKING AND FINING.
Louisville Plarera Still Kicking and Tip
Go the Fines.
Baxtthore, June 15. The strike of the six
Louisville baseball players continues, and it is
unlikely tbat they will play this afternoon.
The Colonels, not wishing to inconvenience the
Louisville management and recognizing their
mistake in not being in readiness to play yes
terday, at a conference this noon offered to
play if Manager Davidson will remit the $100
fine on each for nonappearance. The other fines
for errors they wanted to be submitted to the
judgment of the Association. Davidson re
fuses to make any concession or to furnish the
plavers tbeir fares back to Louisville. He says
they will be fined another 3100 each if they do
not play to-day, and if they do play and play
poorlv those conspicuous for errors will be
fined $23 each. Wiknff, President of the Asso
ciation, is here and advises the boys to play.
Manager Davidson announced this evening
that he had fined each of the striking; players
an additional S100 for failing to report at tbe
erounds. He and President Wikoil had a con
sultation, but pothing came of it. The men
remain steadfast, and declare they will not
play if the fines go. Davidson says he will se
cure new men as soon as possible, bnt expects
it will be a week before tbev can be obtained.
He will continue fining the strikers every
game they fail to report, and if the worst
comes to the worst, will suspend them.
.Baltimore Bents tbe Patched Up Colonels
in Five Innlnm.
Baittmore, June 15. Two games were to
have been played to-day between Louisville
and Baltimore, but a heavy rain storm stopped
the first game at the end of the fifth inning
and prevented the other. The striking Louis
ville players again failed to report and three
amateur players were called into requisition.

Barnie's Good Influence.
Baltimore, June 15. Manager Barnle, of
the Baltimore club, succeeded to-night in per
suading the Louisville' players to agree to
play on Monday, flecker. Cook and Shannon
called on Barnie, who had just returned from a
Southern trip, and presented their grievances.
Barnie told them they were making a mistake
in not playing and were rendering themselves
liable to expnlsion. He told them to plav and
rely on tbe Association to right them. They
agreed to do so, and have notified Mr. David
son they will report on Monday.

Charley Foley's Interesting Letter About
tho Lcntrne Lenders Some Sorrow for
Pituburs How the Future Seems Dis
mal for Ihe New Yorks.
COBBESFOJTDEXCE OF THE DISPATCH.
Boston, June 13. The Bostone are still
on top in the-Leagne-race, but tile defeats
in New York bave -somewhat dampened the
ardor of those who thought that the Giants
would be easy marks for the Hub sluggers.
la the first New York game 12 of the Bos
tons sawed the atmosphere, while their base
hit column was remarkably small, only
fonr hits being made off Keefe. Clarkson,
too, pitched in grand style, the Giants get
ting but five hits off his delivery. These
two men Clarkson and Keefe are, with
out a doubt, the two most effective pitchers in
the country. Both men belong in Cambridge,
which is just across the river from Boston.
Treasurer Billings, of the Boston clnb. says:
"Unless some unforeseen accident happens to a
few of onr best men, I feel most positive that
our boys will distance the other teams. We
have no tear of Cleveland, Chicago or Phila
delphia: New York is the team we fear most."
The New Yorks put np a vefy saffron-tinted
game in this city during their last visit.
"Buck" Ewing had his kicking tights on, and
if be aidn't give Umpire Weeden a tongue
lashing it's a caution. "You couldn't bear a,
cannon go oil," cried "Buck" on one occasion
when Weeden failed to hear a fonl that could
be heard 100 yards away. Weeden is as deaf as
old Doug Allison, who lost bis hearing while
acting as gunner during the war. Allison was
the catcher of tbe old Cincinnati Beds in 1869
70. when the veteran Harry Wright was Cap
tain ana manager 01 tne team.
The umpiring of Barnum and Weeden has
been very poor, both men being noted as home
umpires. This kind of work will never do, and
already there is a kick from this end of the
line to dethrone both men and appoint Lou
Knight and Larry Corcoran. Bond, Manning,
Joe Start and other old ball players are spoken
of to fill the places of the present corps of um
pires, who seem to be as inefficient as they can
possibly be. Lynch is tbe best man of the lot.
He is fearless at home and abroad and plays no
favorites. All tbe men are honest, bnt it Is a
notorious fact tbat tbo most of them are afraid
of home audiences. The double umpiring sys
tem must come.
Brouthers leads the country in batting. For
a long while bis average , was over .600. but of
late he has fallen off some, his average up to
June 10 being .466. Haddock, of Washington,
has tbe same percentage, but he has played In
very few games. Joe Quinn has panned out
well at shortstop. His fielding of late has been
ont of sight, while his timely batting has
brought many a rnn across tbe plate. Tom
Brown's left field playing is not setting tbe
town insane, out tne neet-iootea caiitornian 13
doing tbe finest base running ever seen on the
Boston giounds since tbe daysof Ross Barnes
and Tim Murnane. Tbe old-timers were corkers,
bnt Brown's running to first base Is a revelation
to all. How he does get over tbe grounds The
effervescent and good-hearted Kelly Is playing
Detxer in rignt ueiu man ne ever am Deiore: in
fact Mike is actually surprising himself. Har
die Richardson and Bennett are playing splen
didly, and, as nsual, Bennott is leading all the
catchers. Up to Jnne 8 tbe attendance in this
city had reached over 115,000, turnstile count.
Oh, we are the people! We are heeling for
Pittsburg, but is it not about time for Horace
to wake tbe boys up? Dear Horace; four drops
at Cleveland. 'Tis galling; 'tis appalling.

Tho Outlook for the Giants of a Dismal
tCOTlRESPONDESCE OP THI DISPATCH.!
New Yoke, June 13. The baseball cranks of
this great city have about made up their minds
that tbe champions bave at last struck their
gait. This season has been no exception with
the New York team; their pitchers have al
ways been out of condition at tbe start-off, and
the team has played rocky ball. Since they
have reached home, however, tbeir pitchers
have struck their 1SSS pace, and in the two Bos
ton games here this week Keefe and Welch
only allowed flvo hits to be made oft them.
This has given the men confidence, and they
settled down as much as any club could on

All hope of ever netting back to the Polo
Grounds has now been given up; in fact the
knowing ones gave, up hope lone ago. In this
case.the club will have to play out the season
at tbe Staten -Island grounds and take the
chances of injury every time a ball Is gone for.
To tnose who bave not seen these Staten Island
grounds, it would be well to say that they are
tbe worst that any ball clnb bas ever been
asked to play upon. Wretched is not the word
to express their condition, and If tbe New York
emu ran even get second piace in tne ijeague
race down there it will be equal to winning tbe
championship at the old Pofo Gronndi.
There does not seem to be tbe slightest bit of
enterprise about the New York managers. Had
the club lost its grand stand, as the Brooklyn
club did, it would have taken weeks for tbem
to replace it, instead of ten days. They would
have shouted their hard luck for da s and
looked fnr public sympathy.
Tnls merely goes to show how slow tbe man
agers are to move. Another thing. President
Day knew years ago that be was liable to lose
the Polo Grounds any clay, bnt no ninvo was
made to get another place, and he was forced to
take the Staten Island grounds, and when he
expects New Yorkers to go down there ho Is
mistaken; for the people of this city want to
see good ball, and a good ball ground at well.

a trial of over SO years, are conceded to be tbe
safest and roost effectual blood purifier, tonic

That this Is tho result of merit, and that
Brandreth's Pills perform all that is claimed

DISORDERS OP THE STOMACH.
This disease seems to affect nearly the en
tire human family. ItafTects persons in dif
ferent ways. Dyspepsia is simply indiges
tion, or want of "power to convert food into
chyle, from which the hlood is Jiainly de
rived. The process of digestion may be
more or less obstructed lor years by im
proper food, want of exercise, overwork,
care, depression and other causes, before
the marked symptoms ot the disease mani
fest themselves. At length follow the ir
regular appetite, discomfort before or after
eating, rising of food, eructations, gastric
irritability, costiveness or diarrhoea, pains
in the chest, pains in the limbs, pains in
the head, restlessness, loss of flesh, de
bility, mental depression, palpitation,
dizziness, suffocation and nearly every
discomfort known to mortals. The
cause not being known or suspected, the
sufferer is doctored for symptoms by thi.
that, and the other medicine, till, dying a
thousand miserable deaths by tbe disease
and drugs, he finally looks for'no relief and
gives up to a miserable existence. Such
being the nature of this disease and so per
sistent and serious in its effects upon both
bodv and mind, how essential that one
skilled in the treatment of it should be
sought at once and have tbe disease thor
oughly eradicated and the system restored
to health, which can be done by the power
ful common sense treatment as practiced by
Dr. Woods. No charge for advice.
