THE UFPJBK DBS MOINES; ALGONA IOWA, WEDNESDAY JUNE 7, Ayefs Sarsaparilta h the Medicine of Auld Lang Syne BASE BALL TOPICS CURRENT NEWS AND NOTES OF THE GAME. Old friends, old wine, and the old doctor are the trusty kinds. For half a century has been the Sarsaparilla which the people hate bought when they were sick and wanted to bs cured. If the best is none too good for you, you will get Ayer's. One bottle of Ayer's Sarsaparilla contains the strength of three of the ordinary kind. Che Circuit Fixers Still Harping on Their Favorite Subject—Idle Talk of League Circuit Reduction Still Indulged In—Chicago's Sunday Record. \VI11 Be No Change. Some Louisville sensationalist recently revived the story that the Cleveand and Washington clubs would be dropped by the league and the circuit cut down to ten clubs. The story had no other foundation than tfie idle gossip of players, Induced by the recent postponement o£ some Cleveland games owing to the death of Mr. Robi- Bon's daughter, and the further disposal of players by the Washington club. The magnates at large take no stock whatever in reports of circuit reduction and they ought to know what is going on if anybody does. Messrs. Hart and Brush, In fact, have taken the pains to again emphatically deny rumors that really need no contradiction. Mr. Brush uaid pointedly: "The Cleveland and Washington clubs are In the lerf|ue partnership until the end of the season of 1901, and to the best of my knowledge they will remain until that time. It is certain that both teams will play out the season." If that is not eijough for th« "doubting Thom- ases" we may add that everybody connected with the Cleveland club Is emphatic In the declaration that that club will play out the season no matter how much It may lose; while the Brooklyn-Baltimore people make the same assertion anent the Baltimore club. As for Washington, the owners of that, club must hang on, willy nilly, pending the coming reorganization, or lose all as they are not likely to find a purchaser for the club in view of the uncertainty regarding the.fate of the twelve-club league itself, to say nothing of the future status in base ball of the city of Washington. A Boston Vie* From Boston Globe: Thla year It's the champion Bostons against the field, with the chances about even. Brooklyn, St. Louis and Chicago will work with a hope of seeing Boston go against hard luck, for in its present condition hot a club In the league has an honest chance of beating Boston, The three teams above mentioned, afl well as Cincinnati, will "turn tricks" that Boston w.lll refuse to consider, "Inside" base ball will find willing students among the clubs of Brooklyn, St. Louts and Cincinnati, and in Hanion, Ewlng and Tebeau the three above clubs will have managers who will plan campaigns that Manager Selee would refuse to allow his Boston team to pass through. The Boston champions this season have no ideal to follow. By all odds they constitute the finest all-round team ever organized. With perfect harmony and a string of players as easy to handle as a college team, nothing but clean, straightway ball need be looked for. The largest railroad station in the world is the|new Sontti Station, in Boston. ^__^_ ASTED-CMo of t>»d Denim that R-l P-A-JT-8 will not benefit.

A wise man prepares for the worst while hoping for the best. The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad has taken up the matter of News Agents on the trains with the result that an effort is to .be made to prevent passengers from being unnecessarily bothered by the sellers of newspapers, etc. Under the new arrangement the agents can only call their goods four times within an hour in the regular day coaches, and not at all in the sleeping, parlor, chair or dining cars, as it is well understood that an occupant of any of these cars can always get what he wants by calling on the porter whose duty it is to look after the wants of passengers. John Ralfe, aged 13 years, of English, Ind., considered Eva Jacobs, who is two years his senior, his sweetheait. In a fit of jealous rage, because she walked home from school with another boy, he shot her with a charge of bird- shot, and her right hand had to be amputated. A Study in Mechanics. The Deerlng Ideal Mower, made In Chicago, affords an interesting study in advanced machines, and is as perfect a machine as brain, brawn and money can build. It is furnished throughout with Deering Roller and Ball Bearings. The "Ideal" has a very wide truck and high wheels, insuring great stability and ample traction. Its gears are light, strong and reliable. In this machine the amount of lost motion is so slight that the instant one of the mower wheels starts It communicates power to the crank shaft and knife, thus making it possible to start in heavy grass without backing. The knife may be removed in fifteen seconds, simply by raising a latch. It is the only mower on the market equipped with ball bearings of the bicycle pattern. Mistakes of the past should be made over into guide books of the future. A Broken Record. Chicago is surely the banner Sunday town of the world. Think of nearly 28,000 persons witnessing a game' of no extraordinary importance—a Sunday game between Chicago and Cincinnati. This bona flde attendance breaks the record. In addition to the turn stile admission of 27,489, about 7,000 people were turned away, as there was no possible room for them, besides the tickets ran out, no. such crush having *3een anticipated. So great was the crush at the gates that men were swept away by the pressure of the crowd behind them from the ticket windows after they had handed in their money but before they could grab their tickets of admission. Hundreds of men and boys mounted the fence and formed a complete black fringe around the grounds. In view of the unprecedented attendance one can not help wondering what would happen should the Chicago team happen to be first or second In a neck and neck race at the finish and the concluding series with the nearest club be played at home? Think also of the money thrown away before the Hart regime by the Chicago club's persistent refusal for sixteen years to play Sunday games at home or abroad!

Clarence Beaumont, who has been drafted by Pittsburg from Milwaukee, is one of the few players who have jumped at one bound from their first minor league engagement into the National league. He joined the Milwau-. kee team on Aug. 6 of last year. From that date to the close of the season he played in 24 games and finished with a batting average of .354, leading the Milwaukee team in that respect, while his fielding record was .907. In the brief period he played in the Western league, however, he deeply impressed all the magnates and critics by his ability and was hailed on all sides as a rising outfielder, his batting, baserunnlng and speed in the outfield making him particularly yalu- CLARENCE BEAUMONT, able. Out of 90 times at bat he cracked out 21 singles, six two-baggers, two triples, five home runs and two sacrifice hits. He was the fastest man on the team going to first base, and his basestealing record was equal to that of Daly and Waldron, and he also possessed a staunch "wing," throwing the ball swiftly and accurately from deep field to the plate or bases. Beaumont Is a native of Rochester, Wis., and be attracted the attention of Connie Mack last year, when he was catching the delivery of Adkins on the Waupun team. His terrific batting and speed marked him as a phenomenal ball player, and acting under Mack's advice he doffed the wind pad and began to play the outfield, a position in which he exhibited marked ability. He also played at second base at times last spring, while attending Beloit College, but most of his work was done in left garden. During the summer he rejoined the Waupuns and played with the Prison City team until August, •when be joined the Milwaukee team. A Good Tip for Young Flayera. Young players will do well to follow as close as possible the style of living pursued by a player who has been ovei twenty years In the spangles and it still the king in his position. McPhee. second baseman of the Cincinnati team plays ball on practically an emptj stomach. "On days that I take parl in a game I eat very little at tho noon day meal," said McPhee yesterday "Some tea or toast, or something equal ly as light Is enough for me until afte; the game. I found long ago that yoi cannot expect to do good work on a ful stomach." A Renmrbablo Piny. One day in 1896, Bill Joyce, who was then with Washington, stood poised or first base, while Tacks Parrot, who was playing center for St. Louis, chased a fly In deep field, relates Johr, B. Sheridan. "Tacks" had a habit ol touching off his catches with a run ol ten or fifteen yards, just to show how hard they were. Bill was acquainted with thifi weakness, and the minute the ball hit Parrott's mitt he was off. When he struck second Parrott was still running with his back to the infield. Bill kept on, shot past third and came straight home. When the infiel-Jers saw him go for third they yelled to ''Tacks," and that wild worthy sent in the ball, but Bill had the plate a mile. I think this is the only case In which a runner scored from first on a field out on which no error was made. Diamond GllntH. Casey is doing better work for Brooklyn than he did for Washington. That's natural, however, considering that a faster team is carrying him along with it. Clark Griffith has been trying hard to have that club-inflicted $25 fine for removal from game rescinded, but President Hart, as a matter of discipline, refuses to relent. Manager Hanlon thinks there are too many New England men on the league staff. He Is inclined to consider that a handicap on other league clubs in favor of Boston. At Louisville those patrons who insult the local players—"knockers" President Dreyfuss calls them—are to be regularly ejected from the grounds by order of Mr. Dreyfuss. Manager Irwin has rearranged his Senatorial team. Slagle goes to short field, Cassldy to third base, Mercer to left field, Gettman to center field and O'Brien to the bench. How times have changed. There is not today in the National league a player who can not write his name, whereas years ago X signatures to contracts were plentiful. That whitewash of Baltimore on April 25 was pitcher Dunn's first shutout since he broke into the league. To date Dunn has proved Brooklyn's winning pitcher. Beaumont, of the Pittsburg team, since his short residence In the Smoky City has become a great toby smoker. He never saw them before he signed with Manager Watklns. Tommy Dowd is credited with being the possessor of $30,000 in cold casii. In the language of a New York paper as applied to a famous politician: "Where did he get it?" The coats of Detroit players will wear this year in place of the blouse usually worn are made of bright red flannel with black collar, pocket laps and cuffs. They are cut like the regulation box coat, double breasted and have great black buttons. In length they are a Httle longer than the usual •box coat and will make the eyes of the fans bulge about a foot the first time the players come -marching up from the club house with these coats on.
